Need to install a modem on a Quick Eagle 4200T CSU

Do I connect an external modem to the comm port? I have an external modem on my router, would like to use this if possible. Currently this modem set for 9600, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity. Any config change I must do in the 4200T to make this work?
Thanks,
Gary

C-NOS:
Basically the modem has to dial in first to give you connection, One end goes to the Phone wall socket and the other end to your computer.
-Now in your case I am sure that your router is a DSL router meaning have no capability of dialing on command from the external modem.
-Nowadays VOIP built in routers are much more capable of dialing numbers directly.
-Old dialing modems should be connected directly from computer to the wall jack (phone lines).
Hope that helped!

first you need to make sure that the new modem is provisioned (added to your account from comcast). you can do this by connecting your router to the coax cable and plugging it in (like the old modem was) then call comcast and ask them to provision the new modem (they will want you to return the old modem a local office to avoid rental fees on it). once the modem is provisioned.
1. unplug the power to the modem and router2. connect the router and modem the way you had it with your old modem (Ethernet/cat5 connects from port on modem to interent/WAN port on router)3. pug both router and modem back in
all should work now as long as there are no funky (meaning non-default) settings on your router. so, long answer to say, "no, there should be no special settings that are different for your mac"

Typically wireless routers have one port labeled WAN and four additional standard network ports. The WAN port should be connected to your broadband device, typically a cable modem or DSL modem. You can configure your router with a direct connection to any of the standard ports connected to your computer. Your router must be configured to DHCP automatically with its connection to the modem through the WAN port. So to repeat, outside world to MODEM, then WAN port on router, the wired or wireless connection to your computer.

Your DSU/CUS can set clocking/timing from the local central office (CO) or internal.
There are MANY external DSU/CSU in the market.
Example: Adtran and Lucent


Please reply with what type of T1 DSU/CSU is connected to your unit.
==== If your setup does not use an external DSU/CSU then look for setting for your internal T1 card.

Are all cards on the same rack?

How do i hook up my belkin f5d7230-4 router to hughes net internet when there is only one ethernet port?


Connect that one port to your Belkin WAN (Internet)connector (Yellow Port). The other ports go to other computers, to their Broadband RJ45 connectors.
Here's from the manual:
1. Unplug your existing modem’s power supply.
Find the cable connecting your modem and computer.
Unplug it from the modem and plug it into the gray port
on the Belkin Router.
If you are replacing an existing router, find the cable
connecting the computer and old router. Disconnect it from
the old router and plug it into the gray port on the new router
2. Connect the new cable (provided in the box) to the yellow
port on the Router. Plug the other end into the modem.
G WIRELESS ROUTER Quick Installation Guide
3. Plug in your modem’s power supply. Wait 60 seconds for the
modem to start up.
Plug the Router’s power supply into a wall outlet, and the
other end into the black port on the Belkin Router.
As the Router wakes up, lights will come on; recheck your
connections if the “power” and one of the “wired” lights
are not lit up in green after 20 seconds.
4. Locate the CD in this guide and insert it into your computer
The Setup Assistant should appear automatically.
If it doesn’t, open the CD in My Computer (Windows®)
or the Finder (Mac OS® X) and double-click on the
“Setup Assistant” icon

Hi,could some one walk me through setting up my Billion modem wirelessly to my Dell Desk top running XP home. I get confused with firewalls,LAN settings etc Ethernet cable is being used at the moment. Do...


I am not familliar with that brand, so I do not know if it is a cable/dsl modem, a router, or a combination of the 2. I will assume it is the cable or dsl modem since you said modem.

The thing we need to do first is give you a basic understanding of whats what, and how it works.

Imagine a 3 tier water fountain. Water flows from the top, to the center, to the bottom.

Your home network is the same way. Signal flows from the MODEM to the ROUTER to the COMPUTER CLIENTS in that order. Keep this in mind. Also, remember you never, NEVER setup a router from a wireless computer client. you ALWAYS use an ethernet connected client in port 1 2 3 or 4.

Quick education about Firewalls: They are programs and devices that are designed SPECIFICALLY to BLOCK TRAFFIC. Think of them like Toll Roads. YOU have to open each virtual port for inbound, outbound, or both. Since that is such a painstaking thing, most firewalls come with default port settings, blocking the most typically unused traffic ports and monitoring the common ones, such as port 80 (the internet port) port 110 (the sending mail POP port) and port 25 (the receiving mail SMTP port). That is why typically, people who can get online (but cant send or receive email) have to disable their firewall or antivirus (security) suite, because the program is closing the ports making them useless. IF you have a router, theres a 99.9% chance that YOU WILL NOT need a firewall. Routers are firewalls by nature.

Quick education about LAN (LAN means Local Area Network, meaning a router inside your house or inside your office or a series of switches and ports setup in your apartment, your "local area") settings: Most lans are DHCP, which means nothing to you, but, in lamens terms it means that you hook it up, turn it on, and it auto configures itself. In the olden days, you had to tell your computer its address, and tell the router its address and the address of each computer, and so forth. Thanks to dhcp, they can now negotiate a lease and assign that info automatically. SO, make sure DHCP is ENABLED. and make sure your lan settings are set to "Obtain ip address and dns server automatically".

Quick education about drivers. you DO need drivers for the wireless devices, you DO need drivers for the ethernet devices, but you DO NOT need drivers for the router, and YOU DO NOT need drivers for the modem. DO NOT HOOK THE MODEM TO THE COMPUTER THRU USB! USB is never to be used unless you do not have ethernet capability, it's like a spare tire. Remove any USB wires from the modem and put them away please! The ONLY wires you want in the modem are POWER and ETHERNET. (they dont make USB routers because USB is not a networking device, USB is a peripheral device)

You will be using Ethernet connection. An ethernet connection requires that you only have the ethernet drivers. So:
YES you need to make sure your ethernet drivers are installed and that your ethernet ports are enabled and working, and:
YES you need to make sure that your wireless card is enabled and functioning, and radio is switched to ON.

Now, remember the fountain? We are going to build it here. The trick is that we have to reset the DHCP list. (if we dont, then it wont work because DHCP will be stubborn and try to talk to the other items, not knowing they were removed). So, we will need to unplug power to the modem and router and shut down each pc client... after you print these directions of course.

While everything is off, hook the main computer into PORT 1 on the router. Make sure that PORTS 2 3 and 4 are empty. (fyi, you can use those for xbox, ps2/3 or wii, or any extra computers). Now, look for a port that says "LAN" or "ETHERNET" or UPLINK on the router. (it will be an ethernet port that doesnt have a number). hook that to the cable/dsl modem. You should now have the modem, hooked to the router, the router hooked to the main pc. Lets start the water flow.

plug power into the modem and wait 1 minute for DHCP synch with the company. (usually you see a sync light or a ready light).

once the modem is synched with the ISp, plug power to the router and wait 1 minute. (so the router can get the dhcp from the modem)

If your modem and router are combined in 1 device, then just wait for synch with isp.

Now start the main computer and try the internet. If you can get online, you have a good network connection. The rest will have to be done by the wireless router mfr, but it isnt hard. In fact, by default, you should be able to start your wireless and get online through it now, but you may want to consider wireless security, (WEP WPA) settings. Call the rtr mfr for those. (its not hard, just tedious and this post is long enough already).. lol. Quick note about wifi: its flaky. If you have a 2.4 ghz phone in your area you may drop connection (wireless only). try different wifi channels to resolve the issue, (call router mfr).

It's always smart to set a restore point in case something goes wrong during installation of any program. For wireless connection from laptop or PC: install router software on computer. Reboot computer. In browser address bar enter 192.168.1.1. This brings up a window for user name and password. Enter "admin" for both. This allows you to change many settings including Changing SSID(Router Name), User name and password. Enabling WEP or WPA security. Hope this Helps, Good Luck..!!

First of all, you said "routers", do you mean yo have more than one?
Your router has one "external" or "internet" port, and one or more "internal" or "network" or "LAN" ports. If you have wireless it is "internal" too.
Your Internet modem should connect to the "external" port only.
The computers and other home devices go to the internal LAN ports. If you have a separate hub/switch they are connected to, the switch itself should connect to the "internal"
If it doesn't run by default you'll have to follow the Quickstart instructions given with your router.
Note: if you have wireless, you SHOULD setup your router as per instructions, because by default anyone close to your router can connect to it.

What do I need to use the P310?


You need a ADSL modem or cable modem with an Ethernet port to use the P310. The P310 has two Ethernet ports: LAN port and WAN port. You should connect the computer to the LAN port and connect the external modem to the WAN port. If the ISP uses PPPoE or RoadRunner Authentication you need the user account to enter in the P310.
