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: cannot make a wireless connectiio work with Comcast internet

- Once you already configured the settings on your router, and 2nd step that you do now is to power cycle the modem and the router completely for about a minute.
Note:
- You must also remove the battery back up of your cable modem in order to refresh the settings on it.
- After the power cycling procedure, turn On 1st the modem and make sure all the link lights on your modem are completely stable before you turn On the router.

How do you change to bridge mode


If you are thinking of bridge mode that a DSL modem can be set in, cable modems are by design set up like this. Cable modems are dumb that are only made to pass the public IP address given to whatever is behind it, therefore making it always in a bridge mode.

Can I download modem on dell laptop


Most of the time on laptops if there is no phone input for a modem you cannot just plug in and dial up. The process i use at home for my pc is dialing through my cell phone. If your carrier will allow you to tether your phone without extra charges check your phone manufacturers website for modem software. You then just connect your phone through a usb cable and set a internet connection matching your carriers instructions. Another solution is dificult without networking knowledge but you can set up a home pc with a wireless antennae as a ad-hoc server through internet connection sharing and then allow your laptop to connect through the "server" pc.

I have a pantech um 175 usb wireless modem and I don't have the set up software to activate the usb modem. I need the progamming software so I can access the internet.


That so-called "solution" is totally worthless--the link goes to Pantech PHONE website, which has absolutely NOTHING in the way of downloads, for modems or anything else. As for you, Mr. ADRideau, why don't you bother to check your link before posting it?
Sadly, I don't have any answer to the problem, wish I did because my Verizon software won't recognize my UM175.

Settings saved do not match requirements on this computer


Go into network connections on the laptop and select the Wireless Network. Go into properties and find the TCP/IP settings and ensure that the IP address setting is set to Automatic and the DNS settings also. If you have wireless security set on the router you will have to set that up on the laptop as well.

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.

there are few options to test
Option 1) Check if the SSID and WEP key in the modem page
tally with your logon SSID or WEP key, because
limited connectivity issue happens when SSID and
WEP does not match
Option 2) Restart your modem
Option 3) Check wirings on telephone line , replace tephone line
with another telephone line and make sure the socket
plugged in from the telephone line is a BB tel number
and service has been paid promptly every month
Option 4) Change the wireless channel in the modem page to
detect the wireless device from 9-11 at 192.168.1.254
address in Internet explorer
Option 5) Bring laptop closer to the modem and ensure wireless
led on the modem is lighted and the wireless led from

Adding another computer to network


You can have 4 PCs connecting to your 2 wire 2701hgv or 2700hgv wired or wirelessly. Make sure the DSL light and the internet light is green and lighted up
For wired connection, just plug in the RJ45 cable to the ethernet 1,2,3, or 4 and the other end of the RJ45 cable on your laptop LAN card or network adaptor
For wireless connectivity, SSID is 2wire followed by the last 3 digits of the SN(or serial number) and the WEP key is located at the bottom of the 2wire modem in between 2 bar codes in square brackets. If the WEP key and the SSID was changed before in the modem page, go to the modem page and see what is the latest SSID and WEP key using RJ45 cable connected

Wireless routers


Just plug the cable modem ethernet into the input to your router and you will be fine. Just remember, if you decide you want to make any changes to your router settings through your browser, make sure you hook up an ethernet line from your laptop to the router before making any changes. The reason for this is if you make a change in security settings on your router while wireless, the router will reboot and if your laptop did have the settings changed in it, you can be locked out.
Not that you can't get back in, but it is a pain to have to do.
