Question about Arris SB5100 SURFboard DOCSIS 2.0 Cable Modem (50120900100)

Does Motorola SB5100 SURFboard modem block ports?

I have a Tesl$tra service with a Motorola SB5100 SURFboard modem and Telstra tells me that they do not block any ports with their service. I checked with www.canyouseeme.org and some ports are blocked (8000, 8042, 8043) while some are open (including 25 and 80). The error message for blocked ports is "Reason: Connection refused". Is that error generated by the ISP or the modem or my computer?

I also can't get to www.whirlpool.net.au which is a discussion forum for ISP consumers from my home PC but can from my work PC. Surely Telstra wouldn't block that site???

Blocking specific websites


Hello you can actually block web sites on your computer but no on your router because it Is just for Internet transmitting so it does not have a memory so if you want to block some thing you can do it on your computer.

Hi, I need to know how I can solve this primary issue? I have a new SB5100 and ever I plug it to ethernet port I have an error pointing problems with gateway (it´s missing gateway), now what does it...


Surfboard HATE it if you don't have the ethernet plugged into the computer or router plugged in BEFORE you power up the modem. If you unplug a surfboard's ethernet cable it will just stop talking. You need to plug it into a device and then power it up.

Install


If the modem is already registered to your ISP then you can plug the modem to your computer using an Ethernet cable (CAT5) to your computer's ethernet port and to the modem's port as well.

If you want to use the USB cable then you need to install the drivers for it. You may go to motorola website and type in the model number of your modem to get and download the drivers.

Though, I suggest that you use the Ethernet connection instead.
