Run some antivirus software first to see if your computer is being used by others. You cannot change the speed of your modem by internal adjustments. Clear out all cache locations. Download a program called ccleaner. It's free and works well.

Motorola Surfboard Cable Modem User Guide
The user guide for your Motorola Surfboard cable modem can mean the difference between knowing how to locate and diagnose problems with your connection or staring angrily into a maze of blinking lights.

The user guide provides information on properly setting up your cable modem, understanding the indicator lights and troubleshooting problems before you have to call your Internet Service Provider.Connecting Your Modem


Your Motorola Surfboard cable modem must be connected to your home's coaxial cable connection.
Connect the coaxial cable from your cable outlet into the "Input" jack on your cable modem.

If your modem is wireless, it will connect to any computers and wireless devices in your home through the wireless signal sent from the modem.

Wired Internet connections require that you use an Ethernet cable to connect your cable modem to any supported computers and devices.
Understanding the Front Panel

The front panel of your modem is your key to understanding the status of your cable modem.

The front panel features "Power," "Send," "Receive," "Online" and "Link" lights, each of which displays information about your modem.

The "Power" button will display a solid green light when operating normally and will turn off when there is a problem with the power supply.

The "Send" and "Receive" lights will transmit a solid green or blue color when data is being normally transmitted through your modem and will blink when it the modem is scanning for an upstream or downstream connection.

A solid green "Online" light indicates that you are connected to your Internet Service Provider, while no light indicates that the Internet connection in your home is experiencing problems.

A yellow "Link" light indicates that a computer is connected to your modem with an Ethernet connection while a blue light indicates that a high-speed Ethernet connection is being utilized through the modem.

Configuring TCP/IP

The Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol provides the basic foundation for establishing a local network and a connection to the Internet. The TCP/IP can be configured in the "Control Panel" of your Windows computer. Open the "Network and Sharing Center" from the control panel and double-click the "Manage network connections" option. Right-click the network connection displayed and select "Properties," then select Internet Protocol Version 4 and open the TCP/IP properties menu. Select "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS Server address automatically" from the TCP/IP properties menu and click "Ok" to save your TCP/IP settings.
Troubleshooting


Many technical issues with your cable modem can be resolved by power cycling your modem and the computers and devices connected to it.

To power cycle your modem, unplug it from the power supply for 10 to 15 seconds and reconnect it to the power supply.

Restart all of your connected computers and devices while your modem is power cycling. Problems with the "Send" and "Receive" functions can be the result of a poor signal being sent to your cable modem. Tighten the coaxial cable connection to your modem and contact your internet service provider if problems persist.

Ethernet gives network signals from computer server with connectivity capacities. Once the ethernet is connected to your computer, once of the computers within the network structure has a modem or signal converter box to capture and distibute signals. Your computer is functioning with ethernet cable connection as arranged default. Recent computers however have wiifii capacities meaning that, the modem box is not ncecssary to make signals recognised. Recent computers have builtin signal recepticles, once the programs wireless features are enbled, any available computer networks aer detected. Howver, the wiifii makes connectivity to networks by requesting password keys if the aletrnate computers have protected the entry. Simply said, your computer is ok to function with ethernet as regular achievement. only when the ethernet is malfunct usually caused by the computer that has the modem disconnecting from yours. Your computer should actually get better networking with only one of the method available either ethernet or wiifii. Attempting to receive signals with wiifii and ethernet at the same time impedes the network speed since the structures may only allow an amount of data passage for each network on the same computer. Use the computer wireless buttons located at the system settings area to disable the wiifii until a computer request within your knownlege request to activate wiiffii. Keep in mind that once your wiifii is enabled, another computer is sharing resoruces makign the computer slower if a password was not set.

If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

Cannot Detect Modem during installation


You should start by having everything off then power up the modem and wait for all the lights to come on then power on the router after all the lights come on then turn on your pc. If you are not getting these results I would reset the modem and the router and then follow the instructions above. Resetting the modem and router will revert then to the default settings, that might be helpful to start with fresh settings.

Router cannot get IP with cisco 675 modem


Hi,

The issue may be due to the existence of two (2) DHCP servers; 1 in the Cisco 675 and the 2nd in the DLink DI-524. You need to disable the Cisco's DHCP server function and assign static IP add & config to the DLink WAN config. This way it will only be the DLink handing out IP adds to the network.

The workaround. Install your original configuration/setting without the DLink DI-524 - PC direct to the Cisco 675 (I am assuming through Ethernet ports). Verify that indeed you are connected to the Internet and can surf the net, check e-mails, etc. Check your Networking Connection Status. Log down your PC's IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS. For purposes of discussion, let's call this "N1".

After your Internet connection has been verified with your PC directly connected to the Cisco, remove the direct connection and connect the DLink DI-524 in between the Cisco router and your PC.

Log in to the DLink and modify WAN parameters using the "N1" configurations/settings.

It might be of help to disable any security (WEP WPA, MAC etc) at least while configuring.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

PPP control protocols


Who ever the ISP is that you are dialling cannot agree on the PPP protocols. In other words your ID to that network is wrong. It does not matter what OS you running. Go back to the ISP you must have one before you can connect. Depending on where you are and who that ISP is you will not and cannot connect until these protocols ie; ID and password have been established. If you have all of those and you thinks there is a problem go to them it sounds like your modem is fine.

Configuring EDIMAX 6104 for Aztech 600E Router


Does your router automatically set the ip addresses for each computer, or do you have to set them up yourself? Is the computer that can connect the one that is directly connected to the modem? if it does and you asked windows to repair the connection it probably is messed up. check in the router settings to see if your pc's are on the same ip address route (e.g 192.168.x.x), but not all the same last digit; and the subnet masks are all the same (eg 255.255.255.0)
