Question about Arris Touchstone 450a (CM450) Modem

Open Question

How do I configure my CM550 Arris Modem? I am switching from Insight and now I am going to AT&T. They say I need to configure my modem to get it to work with AT&T services.... Do I need to connect my router back up as well or just use my modem? I only have one computer.

SOURCE: ARRIS Modem + D-Link router = no internet

when you are on Cable Internet with a "modem" only connected directly to the computer, what the ISP see is the computer's MAC Address (command prompt -> type ipconfig and hit enter).

put a router (which has it's own MAC Address) in-between and the ISP wont let you cause it sees the router not the computer.

check physical connection: cable modem -> router -> computer(hard wire for this troubleshooting)

access the d-link gui and locate the “Clone MAC Address" button (supposed to clone the computers MAC Address - verify if it's the same), save settings & reboot the router.

SOURCE: Unable to set up wireless router

Shut down your computer, unplug the cable modem and the switch. Connect all three - computer to switch, switch to modem. Make sure that the ethernet cable between the router and the modem is in the router uplink port and that the computer is plugged into one of the four ports that look alike. Wait 30 seconds - plug in the modem. Wait another 30 seconds, plug in the router, wait another 30 seconds and boot the computer. Open a browser and see if you have internet access. If you still don't, then try to check the browser by typing 192.168.1.1 into the address bar of the browser. That should give you the browser sign in screen. The Linksys default is to leave the user name blank and type admin for the password. That should give you access to the router so you can check the settings. If this doesn't work, document carefully what happens and post again with your results and we'll try to go from there.

SOURCE: i have a arris tm602 modem, HOW DO I CONFIGURE MY

Cable modems bond to what they are plugged into, so you have the modem plugged into a computer and it is working fine. Then you want to unplug the ethernet cable from the computer and plug it into another device such as a netgear router. Then you find no matter what you do it will not work.

Now normally to break this bond to the computer so that it will bond with the router you would simply unplug the electrical power from the cable modem, wait for it to sync back up with your ISP's CMTS, power up your router which you would have connected via the internet or wan port, and you would be up and running.

You may have even did this with your Arris TM602. Why isn't your router pulling an IP address? The reason is simple, pulling the power cord did not really remove power since the modem has battery back up.

In order to make it release its bond to your computer, so it can bond with the router you need to either push the reset button on the back of the modem while still powered up or remove its battery pack while unplugged from power.

So try again, this time push reset on the modem. This question was posted in January so I am sure buttercup is all fine by now but maybe this will help someone else.

We have an Arris wireless modem. We have lost the adapter that goes with it. My husband purchased a Belkin Wireless adapter, but it would not work. We went back to the same store and they do not carry...


If you meant you lost the power cable, then you should contact Arris to buy it.
If you mean you lost your router that was hooked with the Arris modem, the you can buy any router for house like D-Link, Linksys... and get it configured to work properly with the Arriss modem where you buying at.

Is it possible to install the Arris CM550 cable modem on a mac? I've searched online for a driver, since the CD doesn't seem compatible, but come up empty-handed.


Your mac should have an RJ-45 network connector correct? Then plug it in with the cable provided with the modem and enable standard tcpip networking (using the DHCP client software- note if you have OSX it should be part of the kernel) & you should be connecting within seconds.

Plugged in an ARRIS Modem to a Linksys switch and can only get 1 computer to obtain a valid IP Address. Have reset the modem several times with no success.


You need a router not a switch. The router acts as a switchboard and connects the computers to the modem. A switch essentially connects point to point.

How to secure my d-link wireless adapter with my Arris 550a modem


To make your wireless router secure you need to use your browser and type in the router's IP configuration address.
Then you need to change the default Admin password,
change SSID and turn off SSID broadcast,
setup the encryption (use WAP or WAP2 if your wireless card supports WAP) if not use WEP 128 bit encryption
and for added protection use MAC address filtering.

Connecting my arris modem to x-box live


I have an Arris cable modem and use Xbox live. They work very well together. Most ISP's will only allow one active device at a time. When you switch between you cable modem and your Xbox you need to use a pen and press the reset button on the arris every single time you switch.
