Does the motorola surboard sbc6580 modem have phone connetion


Hello:

Neither the SBG900 nor the SBG6580 have a phone jack.

A cable modem with a phone jack is called an eMTA (Embedded Multimedia Terminal Adapter: Cable modem Wikipedia the free encyclopedia.)

Most cable companies will only have one alternative to their own equipment when it comes to eMTAs. For example, Comcast only works with the Arris 722G: Customer Owned Arris 722G FAQ Comcast Help and Support Forums, and they'll insist that it can only work if you bought it from Best Buy.

If you wanted to keep your SBG900 or SBG6580 and have VOIP phone service, look into a service like Ooma.

We just tried to secure our wireless motorola sbg900 and now the wireless portion doesn't work. We have to use an ethernet cable. How do we reverse this and still make it secure?


To change any wireless settings on the router, you will need to make wired connections to the router.
If you change the wireless settings on the wireless laptop it will drop the connection because you are changing a wireless setting.

Hi. just got cable internet (Comcast) and am


that's normal, wireless is normally between 1/4 and 1/2 the speed of your wired connection. normally the router gives priority to wired devices, but this should not cause you any further slow down unless you have wired devices plugged in at the same time you are using wireless. this can be changed from your router's admin page.

Sbg900 wireless connectivety


I had that long time ago. Now I do not broadcast ESSID and changed the channel to 11 (I also use Vonage and when the call was placed the wifi was dropped. No longer).
Changing the MTU to 1452 (on the gateway) helps with the connection. Just to make sure I assigned the first IP address a bit away from the starting point, .10 so that somebody around having the same would not confuse my settings.

I have a Surfboard SBG900 router and cannot connect to VPN


The issue you have is not due to enabling WPA. It is due to enabling Firewall protection. Either turnoff firewall or use custom option to enable required ports.

Is the laptop an xp machine? If so:

In order to access shared files on a Windows XP computer (or any computer running Samba) from a Mac, the Mac will need to "connect" to the Windows XP computer and "mount" the shared files.

Instructions:

Start at the "Go" drop down menu at the top of your screen, then "Connect to server".
If the computer you wish to connect to is listed, just select it from the list.
If the computer is not listed, type into the "Server Address" field 'smb://' followed by the computer name or IP address of the computer to which you want to connect.
Click the "Connect" button in the bottom right corner of the window. See more at the link below:
