Question about Arris SURFboard® SB5101 Cable Modem
On a on a surfboard modem would mean that you are only connecting at 10 Mb as opposed to 100 Mb
If you have a router it may well be a setting on the router.
otherwise I would look for a cable fault or network setting.
In theory it will not make too much difference if you only have a 5mb high speed connection.
In practise it may mean slightly slower pages on the INTERNET.
Start with checking you network settings for you wired connections more so in the properties for your Ethernet card.
If you can, look for a FULL DUPLEX setting and set that to auto.
I would also look at maybe replace the network cable and check that you are also plugged into the correct ports on any router.
eg. modem to router is the yellow Port or WAN
router to computers is usually black ports or LAN (usually 1 to 4)

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It
lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that
the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the
Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup
mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated
the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.
To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.
The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to
indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes
it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's
Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.
Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered
on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this
LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.
DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will
remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when
the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or
receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.

Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.
