Two ports will be available on the CPU, normally 1 port for the phone cable and the other to modem, please connect to one of these ports and see.

How to connect my motorola surfboard sb5101 cable modem ot my ps3


Hi turn both modem and PS3 off. Then connect the ethernet cable from the modem to the PS3 and then turn the PS3 first. Then after the PS3 is completely on, then turn the modem on so the PS3 will get the modem's IP adress.
I recommend you get a router and connect it to the modem and the PS3 to the router. It's way better. I hope this helps.

Do i need two ethernet cables so ican do both


If your modem has only one ethernet port, you'll have to purchase an ethernet hub (or switch) to connect to this one port and the computers to the other ports. If your modem supports wireless communications, then that is an option if you don't want to run wires to each computer, but each computer will have to have wireless capabilities.

I lost the disk for the RCA DCM425 digital cable modem the cable company gave me. how can i get the modem to work on my new computer?


Hello Friend,
If you didn't change anything in modem side, that means the modem is still connected to internet. in this case you can connect the modem to your computer via the Ethernet cable. with this cable you will not need to install anything on your computer, just plug the Ethernet cable to the RJ45 port and start browsing internet.
The only case when you will need the drivers is when you want to connect the modem to your PC via USB cable.
Here is a link where you can find everything about your modem: quick guide, user manual, usb drivers ...
Best Regards,

Motorola Surfboard 4220 not working with my Netgear WGT624 router


Make sure that you have the ethernet cord from your modem plugged into the WAN/Internet port on your router. Then unplug the power cord from your cable modem and plug it right back in. After the modem fully comes back online, unplug the power cord on the wireless router and plug it back in. wait 30 - 60 sec and then try and connect.

Most cable companies only allow one active"CPE" at a time for internet access. All this means is when you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always reboot the cable modem to allow access.


Hope this helps. Let me know if it does not work.

Please rate.

I have Westell E90-610030-06 DSL2+/Router with only 1 ethernet connection (currently using for PC) and 1 usb port. what is the best way to get my ps3 connected to the internet?


You can actually use your PS3 via direct connection through ethernet connection for internet access. Just make sure to go to the configuration screen of your PS3 for automatic connection and refer to manual or call Sony for additional tech support

Ethernet Port failure new router


Check the socket in either the router or the PC. I had the same problem, only with my modem. When I inspected the port, the pins were misaligned, causing it to drop a connection. I corrected mine with a screwdriver, which is not ideal but it works.

Ethernet vs. usb


FYI for those people trying to use a ethernet and usb cable from a cable modem - it may work for a while but it won't work forever - your ISP will only allow one IP address out of the modem unless you pay for additional addresses (then you need a switch). Each device you have on the modem is fighting for that IP and eventually it will just quit working (if it works at all).

If you want more than one computer on your network (on the Internet or sharing printers/files, etc) then you need a router or a gateway (cable modem/router combo which I DON'T recommend).

Ps3 to internet


Difficult to explain but i'll try:

You got 2 options.

1. Buy a router and connect the modem to the router wan port and find a manual how to set it up. Then through your router you can connect (a lot of) pc's, laptops or ps3.

2. Buy an extra network card and a crosslink network cable cat5e. Use software like gatekeeper to connect both to internet.

maybe the second option is the best because sometimes isp providers register you mac adress(unique adress of your network device). It's not the fastest solution.

The first is the most professional but require some knowledge of routers, ppoa, pptp, fixed ip, Wan ip, and lan ip.

I did the second option a lot with speedtouch modems and draytek routers.

Good luck, let me know if you need more assistence.

I can't get my computer on the internet . I am using windows xp and the modem will not get the internet on the dell computer


Hi, This modem can be used via one of two ports: ethernet port (network port) or USB port If your computer has an ethernet port, it is perferable that you connect through this as you will have better performance. If you don't then you can get an ethernet card installed inside the CPU. If it's not possible to connect via this connection and you have to use the USB, then you will need drivers. This website gives you full instructions on how to use this particular modem and also gives you the USB drivers if needed. http://www.triadtwcable.com/template_media/cablemodems/rca245.htm Good luck!
