Question about HP PAVILION A6230N DESKTOP PC

1 Answer

Ethernet Card I can access the Internet with a Motorola SB5120 SURFboard modem via a USB cable, but when I try hooking my PC up to the modem via an Ethernet Cable, nothing works. All of the lights on the modem are working, even the PC Activity light. I would like to hook the modem up to a router, but I have to be able to hook the router and modem up via an Ethernet cable. Any ideas what I should do?

Do a ipconfig at the command prompt and see if you are being assigned a ip from the modem. If not try rebooting the modem with the ethernet connected to modem and computer. then do ipconfig again to see if not getting internet ip, your card or modem eternet is bad. put in a new one and try again.

If you are switching the hardware connected directly to the surfboard, then you may need to call the Internet Service Provider and let them know. They usually set up a session based off of the hardware address of the device hooked up to their modem. If it changes, sometimes you have to get them to close the old session.

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

it will as long as the modem/router is connected to a phone line, instead of the pc, the only cable connected to the pc should be a ethernet cable; or you have the pc networking set that it connects via another pc instead of through a gateway, re run the wireless network wizard.

I am trying to install a cable modem with usb and ethernet connections on a windows xp computer.


Well there are 2 ways
via Ethernet
1.) connect the ethernet from the modem to the ethernet of the computer via the cable provided and thats should basically setup and give you an ip automatically
Via Usb
2.) install the drivers that came on a cd with the model
2.) follow the onscreen instructions and connect the modem via the usb cable when it tells you to
3.) when setup is complete it will create a connect icon for you, just run it to connect

Ethernet card


You either have a bad ethernet port on your modem or pc. If your modem has a USB port, hook that up and run the modem disc to load the driver for USB. You may still be able to get online that way.
