Router/ modem I,m looking to replace wireless-G cable gateway. I want to replace with an "N" and make sure it is capable for 20 meg speed on a cable broadband connection. All I can find so far is the router. I wanted to stick with the modem with router is that still possible in the "N" or do I need to do something different? Libby

Your modem shouldn't need to be replaced unless your modem isn't handling 20 mb speed. You could update it to a newer modem the is running DOCSYS if your cable modem hasn't been replaced in awhile.

You can test your connection by going to this website

Check with your cable provider and see if your line is setup for that speed already.

    Thats only what the modem is rated but there aren't any guarantees that you are going to be getting that speed all the time. You will have to check with your provider on that. I know I have to pay extra on my Comcast service just to get 8 mb.



    They could even swap out the modem for you.

The range and speed coming from the router isn't great considering how much we are getting in and paying for. Anything we can do or is this the routers maximum capacity?


Depends on the router. Many routers will never handle the alleged speeds you get from the cable or U-Verse as far as the wireless goes. And, the device you are using is more limited than the router. If you go to one of the broadband test sites and check your internet speed, that shows the speed of the modem. If you have an integrated modem and router, you would still not likely get the same speed throughput from the wireless side. 15 Meg's on wireless is pretty fast.

How to set up the wireless internet connect on my laptop to this new SBG901 modem?


Short answer: YOU DO NOT.

The cable-modem just converts from the cable-company's signals to/from Ethernet signals.

You use an Ethernet cable to connect the output from the cable-modem to the 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port on a router with wireless capabilities. Then, you configure the router to create your own wireless network, with:
* an SSID ("network name")
* encryption level (use: WPA)
* a password for your network

Then, your wireless device can cite the SSID/password to authenticate to the router.

How to set up my router to get speed by ISP? I have 80/25Mb/sec speed. The router access only 15/15Mb/sec.


Are you measuring while using an Ethernet cable between your computer and your router, or while using your "wireless" adapter to wirelessly connect to the router?

Re-cable your system, to temporarily connect your computer directly to the cable-modem, bypassing the router, and then measure the speed. If it still is "low", then telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot.

Otherwise, the router is capable of receiving at up to 100Mbit/second, and its "wired" ports are capable of sending to your computer at up to 100Mbit/second.

Does your computer have a "Wireless-G" (54Mbits/second) or a "Wireless-N" (more than 108Mbits/second) network-adapter?

Purchase either a USB stick that adds wireless capability to your laptop/desktop, or purchase a PCI wireless adapter-card for your desktop, and install it.

Then, you can move the cable-modem much closer to the cable-outlet, and then connect the cable-modem to a newly-purchased wireless-router ($20 to $70) to receive/transmit over your in-home wireless network.

Belkin 54g Router won't connect to internet.


If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.

Want to get more speed out o my fiberoptic broadand


Well the best router for your connection type would be WNR2000. Even Virgin media recommend this router for their 20 and 50 Meg connection. I am pretty confident that this router will meet your requirement with this ISP connection.

Hope this helps.

Wireless adapter


Go for an external USB wireless adapter, and the speed may vary depending on barriers and the distance from the router, the max. distance is about 30 ft from the router.
Tell me if anything else you want to know abt the wireless connection?

Can only get a 10 meg when connected via cable to srx 200


The speed of your wireless adapter maybe up to 54 Mpbs only, check the wireless adapter that you have if it is 802.11 G its set to 54 Mbps only however if your using 802.11 N the speed of the adapter is around 300 mbps of connection.

There's a settings on the router that you can lock WAN port speed to around 10/100/1000

Note: To have a 300 Mbps of connection you should set the wireless settings of the router to WPA2 and AES with bandwidth of auto 20/40
