Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 (49402201900) Modem
I have successfully used this modem for wireless connections to my laptop with windows vista, however one application I want to run requires the faster, more consistent LAN connection.
I've tried to install the disk, but it comes up with this message:
Contact Motorola Inc for support
This problem was caused by a compatibility issue between this version of Windows and SURFboard SBG900. This program was created by Motorola Inc.
Contact Motorola Inc about upgrades or other possible solutions to help make this device compatible with this version of Windows.
Which version of Windows am I using?
You are using Windows Vista.
Can anyone tell me how to move forward with this? I really need to get my LAN connection sorted out and have no other option but to use Vista. As I said, I am confused because I have been using the it wirelessly for months. I'm a bit of a luddite so easy peasy instructions would be gratefully received!
Many many thanks,
I don't see Vista listed in the SBG Manual, but they do list several windowS OS versions. Looking at Windows 2000 for an example, you basically need to go into the control panel and make sure TCP/IP is configured correctly.
If Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is in the list of components, TCP/IP is installed. You can skip to step 10.
If Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is not in the list, click Install. The Select Network Component Type window is
In both cases, the box next to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) needs to be selected.
If you need the steps in selecting the network component type let me know and I'll try to post those steps also.

you must define DNS and Gateway!!! Go on My Network Places, right click, again right click on your network, select properties, TCP/IP and in there enter needed IP addresses!!!

You have to reset the modem from behind (little pin hole) with the modem and router not connected via ethernet, the let it restart and reset the router after both are reset connect the ethernet cable between them.

This could be a duplex issue. When you log into the belkin does is assign you an IP address? Have you used a ballpoint pen to reset the EMTA since you have connected the router?
