Yes, I hate motorola hardware, though most likely you dont have a choice because its what the cable company wants you to use.

there is a trick though, if the surf board will talk to a computer then get online with the computer and get your IP address (type "cmd" into a run box and from there type "netconfig") it will show you a bunch of numbers. write down your IP address as well as your "gateway address" and DNS Server. usually something like 192.168.1.XXX for both of them though the dns server may say something differant.

now the tricky bit comes plug your computer into the belkin and the belkin into the router, reboot all network devices (not the computer but it doesnt hurt) get an address from the belkin and go to the service page usually "192.168.1.1" in an internet browser address bar. then tell the belkin to use the same DNS and gateway settings but increase the IP by 100 on the last octal. (just to insure the address isnt saved for something else so the IP will be 192.168.1.1XX

reboot all devices again. it should work. your tricking the surfboard into thinking your router is running talking to a computer that is forcing the IP. (ie network device or linux PC)

My motorola only has one ethernet port and a cable coax port in the back. I am trying to set up my belkin wireless router but can't because There is only one ethernet port. is there any way around this.


Plug the belkin router into the modem and use the router for the computer that is currently plugged in. If you have a router that doesn't have built in client ethernet ports (Wireless only), then you'll need to get one.

I cant get my motorola sb5101 surf board cable modem to connect to a belkin g wireless router. the light on the belkin flashes orange when i try to connect it to the modem but no internet connection


I have a similar problem. The common denominator seems to be the SB5101. I have a brand new Belkin Surf 300N, same issue. The modem will not give DHCP to the router. I can connect fine via ethernet to the modem directly.
This modem seems to be a dinosaur.

I want internet on the other side of house


In order for you to accomplish that goal what you need to buy is a wireless router that can be located on the other side of your house so computers there can have internet access wired or wirelessly connected to the router. You can get a wireless router from Linksys, Netgear , Dlink or Belkin.

Is a Belkin N+ wireless router compatable to a Motorola modem SB5100?


No - one it is a modem, the other is a router.

Routers connect computer (direct traffic).

New modem will not work with my Belkin F5D7230-4 router


I would start by re-setting the modem. Disconnect the power for the router and modem. Wait a minute or two. Plug the modem back in first. Wait for the modem to complete communication with your internet service provider. When all communication lights are good on the modem then plug the power into the router. It amy take a few minutes to get all the lights. Hopefully this will allow the DHCP to release from the old router and renew to the new one. Make sure if your internet provider requires any manual configurations that they are properly configured in the new router.

Trying to get my ps3 connected so i can get online


You need to disable the UPnP function on the Belkin router. Log into the router(192.168.2.1), and look under System Settings. If you haven't changed the password on the router, the default password is blank, i.e., no password.

Surfboard Cablemodem not communicating with Belkin Wireless Routr


If the modem is actually passing out DHCP, then you have to connect the modem to the router 4 port lan side and not the wan port. Give the router a static ip like 192.168.1.2 and you can talk to it and configure the wireless features.
