I need the wep security code for my sons dsi to download games on it from the internet. router name arris model # cm450a


When you did the initial setup for your router, you should have configured the wireless adapter in the router:
* set a SSID -- the "name" of the network
* set an encryption-level -- hint: use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password for your network

It's that SSID/password that you need to enter on the DSI, to make a wireless connection to your router.

Arris Model: TM602G S/N: TM02AH1G6 Modem is not communicating with my Linksys router-WRT160N V3 or my Linksys Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with Speedbooster. I have spent hours online With...


Hi ltuttle650,

If your modem is not communicating with your Linksys router, your Arris modem was most likely installed directly to a PC or Mac when either you or a technician installed it. As soon as it connected it registered your MAC address from your NIC. You need to make your sure that the modem is still talking to the PC or Mac. Please try the steps below.

1. Find out what your NIC's MAC is (go to "Start", "run", "CMD", "ipconfig/all")

2. Copy down your NIC's "Physical Address." That is the MAC.

3. Go into your router's web based utility (Linksys is 192.168.1.1, username:none ; pw: admin) and click on the "Advanced" tab.

4. Then click on the "MAC Address Clone" tab.

5. Type in the number that you copied down. Click "Apply."

6. Now power cycle your Modem while it is disconnected from your computer and router. Power Cycle the router. After everything has rebooted connect the router to the modem and you should be good to go!

In most cases, this should work, and you ought to have internet access now.

If this did not work, the following is a quick fix:
1. Go to the 'Applications & Gaming' tab
2. Click the sub-heading 'DMZ'
3. Click 'Enable'.
4. Click 'Save settings'.
5. Wait for the settings to save, and click 'Continue'.

If this doesn't work, I would recommend calling your cable ISP and telling them that you need a modem that will work with more than one computer, or you need them to send a tech out who is able to set up the internet through a router.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to secure my d-link wireless adapter with my Arris 550a modem


To make your wireless router secure you need to use your browser and type in the router's IP configuration address.
Then you need to change the default Admin password,
change SSID and turn off SSID broadcast,
setup the encryption (use WAP or WAP2 if your wireless card supports WAP) if not use WEP 128 bit encryption
and for added protection use MAC address filtering.

Arris Modem won't work with Airport Express


Not sure how helpful this will be, as I'm running a different piece of gear, plus it requires both troubleshooting + ISP assistance.  I had a similar problem with my AirPort Extreme: AirPort Extreme saw the Arris, iBook saw the AirPort Extreme, but no internet connectivity.
  1. In my case, I needed to set the AirPort to DHCP in the AirPort Utility application.
  2. Power down the AirPort Extreme
  3. Power down the Arris. You achieve this by unplugging the Arris *and* removing the back-up battery.
  4. Wait a few moments.
  5. Insert the battery into the Arris.
  6. Plug in the Arris power supply.
  7. Wait for the Arris to go through the restart protocol; when all the lights on the front panel are solid green, the start-up is complete.
  8. Power up the AirPort Extreme; wait for the front panel light to go solid green.
As I was doing this, I had my ISP on the phone that confirmed complete connectivity of the signal path and ensured that I was online.  While the Arris was powered down, my ISP also sent a "message" to the Arris; I don't know if this was a software update or what.  I completed the AirPort set-uo through the Utility application, the AirPort restarted, and I was online.
Hope this helps.

Wi-Fi isn't working


This could be a duplex issue. When you log into the belkin does is assign you an IP address? Have you used a ballpoint pen to reset the EMTA since you have connected the router?

How do i connect a Linksys wrt54g2 to a arris cm450a


Your modem is capable of linking up to a router. What you do is take an ethernet cable and run it form the internet port on your modem to the internet/wan port on your router. From there you connect your pc's into the LAN ports on the router (typically labeled 1-5) if they are hardwired or you connect wirelessly with your laptop. You need to also power cycle/reset your modem when you plug your router in.

Unable to connect Linksys wireless router to my arris cm450a


All routers will only work with ethernet. You would need to get an ethernet card installed in your computer. You can probably buy one for about 20.00 at Walmart. If you don't want to do this you can purchase a usb/ethernet adapter and still use the usb port on your computer. You can purchase one of these for around 5.00's on ebay. Just go to ebay and search for usb/ethernet adapter. Please rate if this has helped. Thanks.

No driver for my modem


There are no drivers for the arris cable modem unless you are using USB.

If you are using ethernet then it is simply plug and play. You may need to press the reset button on your arris.

Thank you.

Linksys router and modem problems


Hello,

Most cable company's will not allow you to use the USB and the ethernet connection at the same time. You will need to only use ethernet to your PC and your XBOX. Once you have the ethernet cord connected from your modem to the WAN/Internet port on your router you will need to press the reset button on the back of the arris to authorise the router for access. After that is done you will plug you XBOX into 1 of the 4 numbered ports on the router. Then you will need an additional ethernet cord for your PC.

Hope this helps
