I just connected with Charter cable and I love it. But the router I use to connect my my own, wife's, daughter's, son-in-law's and son's computers to my XSense Mih-130 router won't work with this cable modem.. I can connect my computer directly to the modem, bypassing the router and all works fine.. If I plug the modem directly into the WAN plug and all the computers up, I do get link lights and data indication on the ports.. . I have tried playing with the IP settings some but I am not very good at networking, I know just enough to be dangerous All worked great with Bellsouth.. All computers are running XP SP2 'cept my son's which is running 2000... All TCP/IP's on the machines are set to 'Optain IP addresses automatically' which, again, worked fine with Bellsouth.. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

att 2 wire is a Adsl Modem (Requires a telephone line jack to get the signals) but charter communication is a cable internet service (not DSL) , Requires a TV cable service for internet . These two jacks differs and there working differs .. Means : Att works with the username and password type of authentication but charter requires the MAC address of modem for authentication . Therefore for a cable internet 2wire 2701hg-b modem cant be used . But yes in case charters has username and password authentication and works with the telephone jack in house then its possible to use the same modem.
The short answer is.... It is a T-1 Router/Firewall that works with ISDN and Frame Relay. It uses the V.35 and BRI interfaces and requires an external CSU/DSU. It is NOT compatable with Cable or DSL internet service providers.
I think the Westell Router/modem that you have must be the modem for the DSL connection. Charter is a cable internet service provider. You can not use 2 modems connected to each other. You have a charter modem , you can purchase a wireless router only. That will work. Click Here for more info about routers
Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router such as an open floor space or table. This does not need to be the permanent location of the device. Particularly for wireless routers, you may find it necessary to re-position the unit after installing it as the cables / signals may not reach all areas needed. At the beginning, its better to choose a location where it's easiest to work with the router and worry about final placement later.
Plug in the router's electrical power source, then turn on the router by pushing the power button.
(Optional) Connect your Internet modem to the router. Most network modems connect via an Ethernet cable but USB connections are becoming increasingly common. The cable plugs into the router jack named "WAN" or "uplink" or "Internet." After connecting the cable, be sure to power cycle (turn off and turn back on) the modem to ensure the router recognizes it.
Connect one computer to the router. Even if the router is a wireless model, connect this first computer to the router via a network cable. Using a cable during router installation ensures the maximum reliability of the equipment. Once a wireless router installation is complete, the computer can be changed over to a wireless connection if desired.
Open the router's administration tool. From the computer connected to the router, first open your Web browser. Then enter the router's address for network administration in the Web address field and hit return to reach the router's home page.
Many routers are reached by either the Web address "http://192.168.1.1" or "http://192.168.0.1" Consult your router's documentation to determine the exact address for your model. Note that you do not need a working Internet connection for this step.
Log in to the router. The router's home page will ask you for a username and password. Both are provided in the router's documentation. You should change the router's password for security reasons, but do this after the installation is complete to avoid unnecessary complications during the basic setup.
If you want your router to connect to the Internet, you must enter Internet connection information into that section of the router's configuration (exact location varies). If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider (you would need to have requested it), the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) given to you by the provider must also must be set in the router.
If you were using a primary computer or an older network router to connect to the Internet, your provider may require you to update the MAC address of the router with the MAC address of the device you were using previously. Read How to Change a MAC Address for a detailed description of this process.
If this is a wireless router, change the network name (often called SSID). While the router comes to you with a network name set at the factory, you will never want to use this name on your network. Read How to Change the Router SSID for detailed instructions.
Verify the network connection is working between your one computer and the router. To do this, you must confirmed that the computer has received IP address information from the router. See How to Find IP Addresses for a description of this process.
(If applicable) Verify your one computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open your Web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as http://compnetworking.about.com/.
Connect additional computers to the router as needed. If connecting wirelessly, ensure the network name (SSID) of each is computer matches that of the router.
Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers. These WiFi Home Network Security Tips offer a good checklist to follow.
When connecting devices with network cables, be sure each end of the cable connects tightly. Loose cables are one of the most common sources of network setup problems.
What You Need:
A network router (wireless or wired)
Network adapters installed on all devices to be connected to the router
A working Internet modem (optional)
A Web browser installed at least one computer in the network
First, you need to find out what your link to the admin panel is.
To find that go to start>run>type cmd and hit enter. Now in that black type "ipconfig" and press enter(w/o quotes)
Look for a "Default Gateway" mine is 192.168.1.1 look for something like that.
Now go into your browser and type that address, now you need to login to the router panel.
Now if you want me to look up the rest I need to know who made your router, and if you don't mind confirming the model number as its above, but I want you to double check please.
Once you do what above and its asking for a user and pass, you need your login. Usally by default mine was admin-user/admin-pass your may be different, Look in your manual that came with the router or call the person that made it they can tell you.
Now when you get inside the panel you'll need to look for an area that says port forwarding.
I have no idea where it is, thus I do not know the exact model, and make of your router.
It will ask for UCP,etc just put both in that option. Then the only part you should have trouble on is the IP.
It should say like 192.168.1. and a blank that you fill in.
In those last 3 you would put 103,104,etc this is how you find out.
Go to that black screen that was up above, and type ipconfig/all and look for your Physical Address, or IP mine looks like 192.168.1.102 in that blank for me I would put 102.
One that IP Camera you need to find outs its IP, look in the manual..
