Question about Linksys CM100 Cable Modem

1 Answer

The install file on the CD that came with the Linksys CM100 cable modem does not work. Instead of installing, I INSTANTLY get the error message, ''installation failed''. I can open and read all the files on the CD, except those that are protected of course, so I know the CD drive is working. Is the Install file corrupted? If yes, where can I find and download a file that is not corrupted?

You can ignore the CD. You don't need any kind of software to hook up a cable modem. Modems do not have anything to configure. Plug in your cable line, wire it to your router (or a computer) with an ethernet cable and you'll be good to go. If you have a static IP you'll just need to enter that info into the router. If you didn't specifically order a static IP from your ISP then you have a dynamic IP and don't need to worry about it.

You may need to reset your device and you will see a reset button at back of your router so all you need is to keep holding it for 10 seconds then unplug the power jack for like 1 min and then your device shall be reset.But please make sure to backup your all settings first.

My WRT55AG Linksys Router does not work. I tried doing the setup (from the CD) again. After Step 7 (cables now all hooked up) I'm suppose to get a password screen to key in "admin". Instead the lights...


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:
Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPPOe.

Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).

Linksys wireless G CD will not install


Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed.
then:
Connect the Cat5 cable from the modem to the WAN port on the router. Then connect a Cat5 cable from any port on the router to your PC's network port.


Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Well i had just bought a lynksys router from my friend with no software cd so right now i am trying to download the software online so when i switch my cox modem with the linksys modem i want the software...


You should be able to get any software that you need from LinkSys.com but I have a couple of quick questions first:

1. Is the LinkSys unit you just purchased a router or modem?

If the unit is a router, you are still going to need a Cox compatible modem. If the unit is a modem, you will still need a router to complete the network setup unless LinkSys makes a combination cable router/modem, and I haven't been able to research one.

2. If it is a modem, is it a cable modem and, if it is, is it Cox compatible?

According to the Cox Web Site, the only models of LinkSys modems that are currently compatible with the Cox High Speed Cable Internet Service are:

BEFCMU10 v3
BEFCMU10 v4
WCG200
WCG200 v2
CM100

In this particular case, you may need to contact LinkSys and/or your Internet Service Provider. In most cases, they will not only tell you exactly what type of equipment you need, they will also talk you through setting up the network once you have the equipment - usually at no charge.
