Yes connect one computer via the usb port and the other via the ethernet port. You will need to use you set up CD to connect the USB port to your computer.

Blocking specific websites


Hello you can actually block web sites on your computer but no on your router because it Is just for Internet transmitting so it does not have a memory so if you want to block some thing you can do it on your computer.

Need to get wireless on my laptop,


No, the SB5100 is just a cable modem, not a wireless router. You will need to keep your sb5100 but you will need to purchase a wireless router if you want wireless on your laptop. If you can also plug your laptop into the sb5100 via an ethernet cable for your internet connection. Linksys and Belkin and others make wireless routers that you can use for your wireless connections.

Inability to connect to Internet


The easiest solution would be to use an ethernet connection. A second problem is probably on most cable modems you can either use a USB connection OR an ethernet connection you cannoot use both at the same time.

Install


If the modem is already registered to your ISP then you can plug the modem to your computer using an Ethernet cable (CAT5) to your computer's ethernet port and to the modem's port as well.

If you want to use the USB cable then you need to install the drivers for it. You may go to motorola website and type in the model number of your modem to get and download the drivers.

Though, I suggest that you use the Ethernet connection instead.

Have you rebooted your modem after hooking it up? Each time you move your connection from your modem, it must be rebooted to issue new information specific to your equipment. Also, make sure you haven't pushed the "Standby" button on the top.
