SOURCE: motorola surfboard sb5120 usb driver problem

Hi, Create a temporary folder say C:\Motorola and put all your unzipped Motorola USB drivers. Install your Cable Modem. If and when Windows asked where the drivers may be located, point to the C:\Motorola. If your modem has already been installed and operational and you simply want to update its current drivers > go to Device Manager and right click on your modem to update, likewise point to the C:\Motorola. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: Cannot set up Motorola Surfboard SB5120 modem

This usually means something is not correct with your incoming signal. If your cable wire into the modem is being run off an amplifier in the wall this could be effecting your service. If the signal is too strong the modem won't be able to communicate for internet.

You could check the incoming wire to see if it is running off an amplifier. If it is you would need to run a new line that is not on the amplifier. I would recommend comcast coming out to check the signal frequency and make the necessary adjustments.

How to reset moorola modem sb1520 surfboard


hi, to reset the modem follow these steps.

step 1 : Turn the Motorola Surfboard SB5120 Cable Modem so that the back of it is accessible to you. There's no need to disconnect any of the cables.

step 2 : Find the "Reset" button on the modem. It's a small recessed button located between the USB port and the cable outlet.

step 3: Use a pointed instrument to push the button. Hold it for 10 to15 seconds to allow time for the modem's indicator lights to go off.

step 4 : Release the Reset button. The lights will gradually begin to come on as the modem connects to the communications channels between the cable provider, the computer and the Internet provider. When all the connections are made, the lights will stablize.

step 5 : Release the Reset button. The lights will gradually begin to come on as the modem connects to the communications channels between the cable provider, the computer and the Internet provider. When all the connections are made, the lights will stablize.

Motorola sb5120 trouble


the sb5120 does not have a reset button- you just unplug the power cord and plug it back in to reboot it, it is a modem not a router. click start-run- type: cmd and click ok then a black box will come up and type in: ipconfig and press enter and that should give you your ipaddress of your router if you are connected through a router
