Connecting via cable broadband

I am trying to fix someone's internet connection and am having some difficulty getting rid of the ip settings. The old connection was DSL and now using cable.

I deleted the old connections and built a new one. It tells me its connected but cannot bring up the internet.

Using ipconfig /release all/renew is not working. The release works but when trying to renew I am getting a timeout error.

any ideas?

Sometimes, it's necessary to turn the modem off overnight, with cable modem folks, so that the IP address can reconfigure..weird, but true..

also, you may want to go to settings, and automatically set the address, instead of using the dedicated IP approach.

I'm using an SB5101 and trying to use a new wireless router with this modem, but the set up is saying I have a static IP address... where can I find that on my computer whil I'm using my old router? thanks


I have one, after finding out how reliable and well-made they are. However, they can be picky during setup, especially since they have a rare 'config IP' address (the number you type into your internet browser's address bar to change the modem's settings). Click here >> 192.168.100.1
See this link for more info.

The router is a Microsoft, not the modem. I know of only one other person that owns a M$ router. A Netgear would have been my preference and a lot less trouble.

If you press the window key and R, you'll open up a RUN box that you type in CMD and press OK. It will open up another box (DOS) and you type IPCONFIG. The machine will respond with your IP address and gateway. If the gateway is something like 192.168.1.1 and your IP address is 192.168.1.x where x is anything but 1, it's a good start.

Open up Internet Explorer and type in the 192.168.1.1 or whatever into the address bar. It should open up the web browser for the Microsoft router. Now, did you get a set of instructions with a quick setup? Is this the MN-xxx box? You get to search the M$ website for the setup instructions if you don't have or never had them. Or, remember that $40 Netgear?

The username and password might be admin and admin or blank. That lets you set up wireless security. It should have some pretty self-explanatory help screens to give you either a WEP key or a WPA-PSK key. I'd start with WEP and a simple 10 character hex password like FACE123456. If the neighbors guess it, you can always go for better passwords or change the one you just set.

Hope this works, and think of me down the interstate from you (x187).

Sounds it is your modem. I had a similar issue with my old one. I had a westell 6100F and now have a 6100G that helped. My company had to replace about 150 of line about 1000 Ft away from my house. The cable was in a storm drain and it was getting wet and interupting my internat connection.

I have a old PC from gateway that someone else had and i try to connect to the inertnet can't find gateway address?


Make sure that the ip address isn't set as static. It should normally be set for dhcp. Confirm that the network card also works as it is second hand.
If that is all OK, then it must be your router. Ask a pal to pop round with a laptop or another CPU to confirm that you can access the internet via your router. If not then, it is either your router or your ISP.

Cant connect to xbox live need an ip address how do i get one


When the SurfBoard modem is powered up and connects to the internet on the WAN interface, it automatically gets an IP address from your ISP. When another machine is powered up and is connected to the modem via a USB cable, it is automatically using the WAN IP address to communicate with the world. If it is connected via the Ethernet connection, the modem automatically issues it its own IP address for use on the internal network via DHCP. The modem's internal Ethernet connection is 192.168.0.1. The next machine powered on will normally get an IP address of 192.168.0.2.
