I have a problem with my Haxorware SB5101 surfboard Motorola. I keep getting this error: "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. I tried everything including ipconfig/renew, resetting modem, reinstalling Windows 7, disabling/enabling network adapter, etc. Please help!

SOURCE: Local area connection, no internet connection

My guess is the LAN port on your motherboard is bad. The simple solution would be to add a PCI ethernet card and disable the one on your motherboard in device manager.

SOURCE: After replacing Cable Modem, D-Link DI-524 Wireless will not work

Did you call Comcast and give them the new MAC address of the Motorola SB5101 SURFboard cable modem? I'm surpised it works at all without doing this first. This is the hardware address of your modem so the world can see you, no one in the world has the same MAC address, they are all different. It's on a sticker on the modem.

You need to disable the UPnP function on the Belkin router. Log into the router(192.168.2.1), and look under System Settings. If you haven't changed the password on the router, the default password is blank, i.e., no password.

Hi, follow the steps below to configure MR814 with your motorola surfboard:

CONNECTIONS:

1. Connect a Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port of the router (isolated port).
2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that there is no direct connection between the modem and the computer (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.
RECONFIGURE:
1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.0.1
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

It sounds like you found a solution elsewhere because you didn't reply to the three people who asked for more information.

I cant find my wep key. I have a SB5101 motorola router and I have windows XP. I've tried many different ways and I still cant find it. I have a different ip address then most people, so when I enter...


The SB5101 is *not* a router, its a cable modem, much less sophisticated than a router.
It does not provide a local network (192.168.x.x IPs) and no network address translation (mapping the an external IP to local IPs)
Your IP looks unfamiliar because it is a public IP assigned to you by your service provider.

There are no configurable elements provided by this device, it does not have a configuration web interface.

Cant connect to xbox live need an ip address how do i get one


When the SurfBoard modem is powered up and connects to the internet on the WAN interface, it automatically gets an IP address from your ISP. When another machine is powered up and is connected to the modem via a USB cable, it is automatically using the WAN IP address to communicate with the world. If it is connected via the Ethernet connection, the modem automatically issues it its own IP address for use on the internal network via DHCP. The modem's internal Ethernet connection is 192.168.0.1. The next machine powered on will normally get an IP address of 192.168.0.2.

go to the network connections page on your computer, then find your connection and right click it and move down to status... there should be a tab that says support... click it and you should see the ip address assigned to your modem by the ISP.
