You also need a wireless router physically connected to the comcast modem so your wireless laptop will have something to communicate with.

Does the motorola surboard sbc6580 modem have phone connetion


Hello:

Neither the SBG900 nor the SBG6580 have a phone jack.

A cable modem with a phone jack is called an eMTA (Embedded Multimedia Terminal Adapter: Cable modem Wikipedia the free encyclopedia.)

Most cable companies will only have one alternative to their own equipment when it comes to eMTAs. For example, Comcast only works with the Arris 722G: Customer Owned Arris 722G FAQ Comcast Help and Support Forums, and they'll insist that it can only work if you bought it from Best Buy.

If you wanted to keep your SBG900 or SBG6580 and have VOIP phone service, look into a service like Ooma.

Set up difficulties


You sure can. Start w/ the Comcast modem as long as it is NOT a USB type and hooks using a CAT-5 cable (regular network cable). Hook the comcast modem to the WAN port of the wireless router. On the back of the wireless router use the normal 1-4 extra LAN ports to hook other computers or the SD208 switch to it and other computers from there.

Word of advise if using Wireless Router, be sure to read manual and set a KEY for your network to secure it from unwanted outside use.

There are lots of possibilities here. The first thing is IF you are connected through a wireless network, Disconnect from the network. If you are networked directly into the Comcast modem, disconnect from the cable modem. If you disconnect from the network entirely and things seem to return to normal, then it is possible that you have a cable modem problem, a wireless router problem or someone has hacked into your network. The latter is most likely if you are running a wireless router and it is unsecured as this allows others to use your wireless network without your permission. If you disconnect from the network and things seem to improve only slightly, try running a virus scan while disconnected from the network and see what pops up. If anything has been downloaded to your computer a virus scan should find it. I would also recommend going in and making sure file sharing is turned off. If things seem okay after a virus scan, then try hooking back up to the network. If everything seems okay at that point, then most likely the cable modem or router are okay. If you still have a problem after reconnecting to the network try resetting the cable modem and the router. If you continue to have problems, I would call Comcast at that point and have them help you troubleshoot the cable modem to see if there is a problem with the modem.

Will comcast support Actiontec - ADSL Modem with 802.11g Wireless Router and 4-Port Ethernet Switch


Comcast will not support that kind of modem. Comcast is a Cable ISP thus the ADSL modem won't work with them because ADSL modem is for DSL providers. Cable Company uses different protocol than DSL. But Comcast will provide you the cable modem if you subscribe to them.

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425


First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

Trying to install router for wireless


If that's hooked to comcast you can only have one computer hooked up to it, and no modems as they block mac address. If you are a Comcast customer there is a workaround. Turn on your wife's wireless if she hasit, if not get her a wireless card USB is easiest. Turn on sharing on that wireless card and you will be able to access the internet through your wifes computer, and not run afoul of your Comcast agreement. Or request an upgrade to a wireless router from Comcast but your rent goes from $3.00 per month to $10.00!

Why does this keep happening??? Please advise...


Your modem is set to only allow one main IP address, which it assigned to your laptop.

Connect the cables through the router, then unplug first the modem, then the router.

Wait 45 seconds, then plug in router, wait 5 seconds, then plug in modem.

Give it a few seconds to talk to everything, and you should be good to go.

2wire Wireless router not working w/Comcast cable modem


Its almost impossible to connect a 2wire DSL router with a Cable modem. They dont go hand in hand.
Although you can connect the outgoing ethernet wire from the modem in the last ethernet plug on the back of the router and then have the ethernet connections coming from the router. But not wireless. and if you find a way, contact me at jneal2k9@hotmail.com
