Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 Wireless Router (DHSBG900)
After installing a new Motorola SBG900, with Motorola's help, my wired PC and wireless laptop worked with no additional changes.
A few days later when I tried to get my wife's wireless Pc and wireless laptop I was able to connect to the wifi system. However, they did not work as a network addressed was not assigned to either of these computers.
how do I get the modem to assign a network address to each of these computers
I guess your modem router was already configured well since it worked already previously. It seems that your motorola router is set to broadcast dynamic IPs (DHCP enabled) and your last connected Pc and laptop were configured with static IP. Please check your "network connection" setting and make sure it is set to "Obtain IP automatically"
