Solution


Here's a user guide http://broadband.motorola.com/noflash/customer_docs/user_guides/510984-001.pdf

but basically all you do is

  • screw the coax (tv cable) to the rear of the Motorola modem
  • connect the power to the modem and wall outlet
  • plug an ethernet cable into the rear of the modem (looks like a very wide telephone jack)
  • plug the other end into the WAN or Internet port of the Linksys router
  • plug the power into the router and wall
  • if wired, plug another ethernet chord into a LAN port on the router (probably numbered 1,2,3,4) and then plug the other end into your PC/Laptop
  • if wireless, an usecured network should now show up when you search for a wireless network (named LINKSYS or something)
if all is well and DHCP is enabled by default you should be online.

System can't Install the MODEM Drivers
