Contact the cable company and tell them you have a router connected to your modem - they will tell your modem to access the router for it to work.

I'm trying to hook up a second computer in my son's room. Problem - how do I connect the second computer to my Comcast cable router which is a Motorola SB5100 so he can get internet over the cable?


In the picture, it looks like a wireless router. In that case, his computer just needs a wireless card to get the internet. Or, you can hard wire it directly from the modem to the computer, if you don't have a wireless card for the computer.

You can connect your computer to Internet if you have a Wi-Fi card in the computer. You need to connect the modem ethernet cable to the netopia wireless router and then connect to internet through wireless connection. First task is to configure wireless network connectivity on your netopia router connecting the 1st ethernet port to your pc lan card port, you will need the netopia instruction manual for this. The wireless configuration will be through a browser window(like internet explorer/mozilla firefox). This may take roughly 20 -30 minutes.

Trying to install router for wireless


If that's hooked to comcast you can only have one computer hooked up to it, and no modems as they block mac address. If you are a Comcast customer there is a workaround. Turn on your wife's wireless if she hasit, if not get her a wireless card USB is easiest. Turn on sharing on that wireless card and you will be able to access the internet through your wifes computer, and not run afoul of your Comcast agreement. Or request an upgrade to a wireless router from Comcast but your rent goes from $3.00 per month to $10.00!

Please help...internet won't connect


You may be running into a problem of your ISP only allowing one computer on the internet. while the internet is on can you access the internet from the desktop comcast originally setup?  If so that is more then likely your problem.

I have comcast myself and they told me they do not allow home networks. I fixed that problem by using the mac address cloning feature in my router.

The setup cd is also junk, all you should really need to do is:
1. unplug modem, router, and turn off computers
2. Plug modem into router
3. Plug computers into router (don't worry about wireless right now)
4. Turn on modem, wait 20 seconds or so for lights to set,
5. Turn on router. again wait for lights to set
6. Turn on ONE computer that is hard wired into the router
7 Try to surf the net.
8. If successfull try to connect wireless computers (Without using cd) and see if they surf.

If not call comcast and see if your computers are trying to obtain real-world ip's instead of LAN ip's like they should.
If so, you'll need to enable DHCP on the router.
