This modem is USB or Ethernet. I strongly reccomend using the ethernet and not the USB option as USB will lose some speed.
An ethernet cable is a standard RJ45 Jack'd cable (both ends) - check google images if unsure but you'll see the plug in the modem that is the same as one on your laptop.
If you dont have an ethernet port on your laptop (possible but unlikely) then you'll have to use the USB option - this is a usb cable similar to a printer usb cable (square usb end at the modem and flat usb to the laptop)

Hope this helps! please dont forget to rate :)

How do I bypass my router and connect my motorola sb5101 to my laptop?


use an ethernet cable and connect the modem with your PC
power cycle the modem to make it recognize your PC
At your PC, http://192.168.100.1 with username and password admin/admin to check the result. If your PC cannot get to that IP, you need to use ipconfig /renew command or simply reboot your PC.

I cant get my motorola sb5101 surf board cable modem to connect to a belkin g wireless router. the light on the belkin flashes orange when i try to connect it to the modem but no internet connection


I have a similar problem. The common denominator seems to be the SB5101. I have a brand new Belkin Surf 300N, same issue. The modem will not give DHCP to the router. I can connect fine via ethernet to the modem directly.
This modem seems to be a dinosaur.

My Motorola Sb5101 modem will not let me access the internet, the send light constantly flashes and i can't attain any internet connection.


If you have the following lights :
Power light - on
Receive light - flashing
Send light - flashing
Online light - off
PC/Activity - on
Standby - off
Then your Network Access is OFF - modem is successfuly registered but Network Access Control is disabled via DOCSIS configuration file.

Call your internet service provider....

You need to input IP and DNS information in windows. I can only help you where to input but you need to contact your ISP for IP address.

Cant connect to xbox live need an ip address how do i get one


When the SurfBoard modem is powered up and connects to the internet on the WAN interface, it automatically gets an IP address from your ISP. When another machine is powered up and is connected to the modem via a USB cable, it is automatically using the WAN IP address to communicate with the world. If it is connected via the Ethernet connection, the modem automatically issues it its own IP address for use on the internal network via DHCP. The modem's internal Ethernet connection is 192.168.0.1. The next machine powered on will normally get an IP address of 192.168.0.2.

No connectivity; constant blinking LED lights "Receive" and "Send"


Or you didn't pay your subscription on time and the ISP disabled your cable modem to send user traffic over the cable network. When both Send and Receive lights are blinking that is a visual aid that the modem is working fine, but the ISP disabled its access to the network (unpaid bill, legal issues, etc.)
