Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 (49402201900) Modem

WINDOWS VISTA - CAN'T SET UP LAN: SOFTWARE NOT COMPATIBLE?

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.
Recommendation

Contact Motorola Inc about upgrades or other possible solutions to help make this device compatible with this version of Windows.
Motorola Inc
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,

Jo

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
displayed:

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.

We have two computers and we are trying to set up a network so both computers can use internet, the host computer has windows vista and coble modem the other computer has windows xp and is about 275'...

Hi.
You are going to need two things for this to work.
First, you need a wireless router, these usually run about $50-$60.
Then after you get the router, you need a wireless usb adapter, so that the xp computer can receive the signal from the router.

Connect the lan cable from the cable modem that is currently attached to the vista computer to the router, then connect a lan cable from the router to the vista computer.

The xp computer is easier.
After you have the router hooked up, just plug the usb adapter into the xp computer, install any software that comes with it, and after it install the drivers it will be able to connect to your router, and have wireless internet.

Make sure that you know the name of your router, that way you are connecting to the right one.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day.

How to connect usb conection from my data one "UT-300R2U" modem to compaq laptop.we have usb cable and driver cd but drivers are not installed in my laptop.plz give me the complete solution for this...

If you are using Windows Xp, just connect the modem using USB/LAN it will be automatically detected & software for it will be installed. Then you can just set up a connection, put in your username & password, done.
If you are using Windows Vista / Windows 7, modem in LAN mode will be installed automatically like XP, but not in USB mode. Because there's no USB driver for UT300R2U (BSNL modem) in Vista. You need to find a ZTE Remote NDIS device driver, install it & then you can connect. Hope this will fix your problem.

New Vista laptop and problems setting up wireless

Hi,

Chances are the wireless portion of the trendnet software is not compatible with vista. I would uninstall the trendnet software or let windows control the wireless portion of it.

Check to see if you are using any encryption ie. wep or wpa or wpa-tsk. If you are then you will need to enter the network key in windows.

good luck
