Q: Configuration address for an Arris TM502G modem

I need to find the configuration address for an Arris modem. The instructions that I have sya that it should be at the bottem of the modem, listed as an "http." address followed by a series of numbers, but there is no "http" info on th modem. Is there a different way for me to find that number?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How did TWC have you reset the modem? Did they just have you unplug your modem from the AC outlet? Is this modem a combo modem router or do you have a separate router connected to the modem? To technically reset the router and or modem you need to push in the reset button on the back of the device. Use a paper clip and push in an hold down for 15 to 30 seconds then release.

I just got new cable internet service with an Arris cable modem. I have an ActionTec router which I have used for sometime, across various connections.

I connect the Arris Modem's LAN out to the WAN input on my ActionTec and it reads the signal fine as it normally would. Only problem is that the "internet" light never turns green. In other words the ActionTec does not recieve internet connectivity from the Ariss modem. I need it to work so I can use my Wi-Fi laptop (the Arris modem does not have WiFi).

I have tried restarting both and that was no help. I tried plugging the Arris Modem directly into the PC to ensure there is internet connectivity and everything checked out.

Any ideas?

Hello all. strictly speaking of WAN speeds here. no wifi.

at the recommendation of my cable company (TWC), i got a free modem upgrade. Arris TG862. (docsis 3). my older modem (forgot what brand) was only rated at 47ish mbps max.

i'm paying for 100mbps but i found out that my router (Linksys BEFW11S4) was capping me at 20mbps. which I thought was odd cause even though my router is pretty old, i thought it was advertised/rated at 10/100.

at least this newegg site says it's 10/100. WAN http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833124002
because of this, i decided to scrap my router and use the built-in router of the arris modem to plug in all my pc's and enjoy the super fast speeds. but i'm getting weird lag issues. If i used my search terms correctly, I think it might be DNS issues?

the actual symptoms are: if i type for example: google.com or youtube.com, it will take a long time before i actually see my browser actually start loading the page. as if it's poking around the net knocking "anyone home" and not getting a response till like 10 seconds later and then the page loads instantly. sometimes it won't even load it'll get a connection time out. but a quick refresh and it's instantly fully loaded. and my speedtest speeds are definitely at over 100. but that intermitten hangs are ultra annoying.

very very very annoying and I'm hoping to get some insight as to what might be causing this and how I can ... Read more

My speed stream 5100 started quoting on me, so had att send me a new arris router/modem thinking it would provide better wifi coverage throughout the house, when I'm really not thinking it will do this. (No antennas on this unit). Current setup is the failing seimen 5100 speed stream with cycsco wrt54g. Any advice? Really just needed to replace the modem and keep using all as I have it. Maybe the arris will work out ok, bit I doubt the range will be sufficient. I have 30 days to return it and can't try it until tomorrow night, at which my service will be turned over to the new uverse stuff. We rely on the wifi for our cell phones so I gotta figure this out quick. I don't even see a way to use my cysco extender with this arris unit. Damn, should have ckd this out more before pulling the trigger. However att told me I'd have to use this newer unit. My kids bedrooms are a ways away from the location of PC where router sits and I need that range of wifi to make it to them.

A:New uverse arris router/modem

It looks as if I must use their modem/router, but I should be able to bridge my cysco router to this att unit, correct? And I should still be able to connect my 2 tvs using my current cat5 cables, into the cysco? I just wanna bypass the att arris router altogether and just use its modem. Thinking the cysco unit better for wifi with its antenas. Gosh what a mess!

I received a new Arris Modem from Comcast and could not firgure out why my D-Link router would not work with it. The router worker perfectly with the prior Comcast Business router/modem. And my PC worked fine with the new modem. But when I plugged my computer into the router....nothing!
After reading a bunch of similar posts on the web, I was perplexed since no one had a rational answer. I called a tech savvy buddy who nailed it. I have to say I did notice the router status showing no network connection and no cable connection ... that was the clue.
The modem has a dumb RJ45 port! It needed a CROSS-OVER CABLE!!!
Bingo! all problems solved.

I hope this post helps save some people from the frustration and day of wasted time I experienced.

Hello there. I've been having numerous problems with my Arris Touchstone Telephony tm602g Modem, and I am looking for assistance. I am set up with Cogeco running TV, Internet, and recently added, phone service. After switching from bell to cogeco, we switched from a wired modem to a wireless modem, this one. We used to use a linksys, but because of the new modem being wireless, the linksys is on the table being a paperweight. We currently have a desktop computer and a laptop using the modem for internet computer wise. Allow me to list the problems I have been having.

Phones die out every other day. Randomly, the telephone 1 and telephone 2 lights start blinking, and we do not get a dial tone when we pick up any phone in the house. No phone is off the hook, and the only way to fix it is to turn off both computers, make sure all the phones are not off the hook, then reseting the modem (holding the reset button for 20 seconds).

Laptop loses internet almost daily. I cant explain anything about this because the desktop computer's internet is fine throughout this whole ordeal. We just have to reset the modem 2-4 times for it to work.

The Wii, DS, PSP, and Xbox 360 cannot access the internet. It is not found as an access point when you search for one, even when the portable devices are right next to the modem.

Any help is appreciated. I've tried replacing ethernet cords, attempting to resetup the linksys (I get error 322: No linksys detected), etc.

A:Solved: Arris Touchstone Modem Problems

The 602G doesn't seem to be a wireless router, so you must have some other device connected providing wireless networking. If the phone lights blink, there's a problem with the modem. You'll have to have your ISP check into that.

I use comcast internet and VOIP service and rent the above modem from Comcast. I purchased the exact model but when I attempt to have it installed (MAC number thing) at Comcast they have now told me twice that my modem will not work even though it is the exact model.

Arris says not true. My modem should work so Arris tech stated.

So I tried again and had no luck. Comcast's tech stated that the modem I rented was the only modem that would work. (Tech stated that Comcast modifies the modem).

Again Arris states this is not correct.

Anyone know where I might go to get addition support/suggestions.

you need to give comcast the MAC address of your new modem and have them

I recently purchased an Arris Surfboard SB6121 to replace my rental modem with Cox. I have registered the modem and can connect online while hardwired but my Belkin N150 will not connect to provide wifi. I've spent 2 hours dealing with Belkin and Cox but Belkin's solution was to extend my warranty so they could help further... or just to buy a new router. The router still works with my old modem so there clearly is just some configuration that needs to be changed. I am not the most tech savvy person so I am lost. HELP!!!

Use a non-default login password for both routers. Don't allow remote (internet) login unless you need to use that feature.

Protect both wireless networks with WPA2-PSK or WPA-PSK encryption with a strong passphrase. If you are not going to use the ARRIS's Wi-Fi disable it.

Comcast cable phone service doesn't work except on phone that is connected directly to the back of the modem. I am using an Arris TM602G modem. I have cable TV, internet and phone service. My internet works fine (except when the phone line is in use) and cable works fine. My modem is connected directly to a Belkin wireless router via an ethernet cable. I currently have two issues with my connection:

1. Phones that are NOT connected directly to the back of the router, but connected into a wall phone jack instead, have no dial tone at all
2. When phone line is in use, I lose my internet connection

A:keep losing dial tone using my Arris TM602G modem

Well, those are significant issues!

One reason for the phone wiring not to work is that it may still be connected to the previous wired outside phone company lines. If so, first step it to disconnect that! Next, if you have too many phones and/or other phone line connected equipment, the Arris modem can't drive the load, time to thin the herd The easiest way to do this is using a multi-handset DECT 6.0 wireless phone system, excellent range and a 4 receiver set can be had for less than $100. Plug the base station into the modem, and the others are all wireless.

As far as the phone disconnecting the Internet, that's clearly a Comcast issue, call them and complain!

I've been using a D-Link EBR-2310 (wired) router in conjunction with Time Warner Road Runner Internet service for several years now. The other day, we decided to upgrade our service to cover telephone as well. As a result, Road Runner came in and replaced our old modem with a new one that works for both telephone and internet. The problem is, the D-link router does not work with this new modem. If I connect the computer directly to the modem, everything works fine. But the modem... no luck.

The model and make of the modem is: Arris Touchstone Telephony Modem, Model TM602G.

What I have tried in a nutshell...

Cloned PC's MAC Address on router
Power Cycled Everything
Updated Router to latest firmware

What I have tried in detail

Normally when the internet is connected, the modem has a "Link" light which flashes somewhat quickly. When it is hooked up to the WAN port of the router, it does not flash. Curiously, though, if I hook it up to a LAN port on the router, it flashes as if it works. But there's still no internet. And when I access the router's settings through a web browser (entering in, it shows no IP address.

D-Link provided a set of step-by-step instructions which I found under their FAQ, how to configure the router to work with cable. They basically went through cloning my PC's MAC address, power cycling both the modem and router in a specified order/duration, and telling the router to renew its DHCP release.

Ok, I am helping a friend over the phone and am having trouble identifying why they cannot acquire DNS or even ping the gateway,
The first laptop connects without fail to the wireless signal where the second laptop is able to see the signal and acquires and ip address of with a gateway of but we are unable to ping the gateway. I turned off all security features in the modem and laptops that I could think of. it is as simple as an access point right now. Is there something I may be missing that needs to be disabled or enabled? I have verified that there are no static IP's set and that all is set to obtain automatically. when I do an ipconfig /release then renew, it reads that it cannot be renewed while it has its media disconnected leading me to believe that the wireless was turned off which it is not. It is associated to the SSID but with limited connectivity..how does it pull an IP and not able to ping the gateway? Security is the only thing I can think of... any ideas? sorry for the limited information as I am not sitting in from of the computers. it is 2.4ghz, channels - auto, encryption - open. thanks for the help.

typical issue.
Get the connection and then

get a command prompt
enter ipconfig /all >myTCP.txt
now look for Node Type . . . ?? should be Hybrid

if not, save the attachment, remove the .TXT suffix and save as .REG
dbl-clicking will fix the registry to make Node Type . . . Hybrid

Disconnect from the router after applying the change - - wait 30 sec - - reconnect.

cannot acquire DNS or even ping the gatewayClick to expand...

the DNS is a real problem and the above should resolve that.

* You alread know how to see the tcp config. Here's how to TEST the DNS:

get the command prompt
ping (good timings says you have a PATH in the Internet)
nslookup (if you get back the name, then dns by address is ok)
nslookup google-public-dns-a.google.com (should show you the address
at this point you should be fine.

* your real issue is Internet access, not ping, not /release and not /renew. Yeah they can be useful
but never impact email or browsing.

I'm not much of a tech savvy guy so bare with me here, I'm currently having an issue with my router. I have a belkin n450 DB wireless router (model f9k1105v1) that has been having issues resulting in a "no internet connection". after some research on this topic, I didn't find much except that my modem (which is an Comcast arris modem) might not be able to connect to the routers settings. I have tried everything from resetting my Belkin router and unplugging everything, and still no result! - may I add this router is a solid orange colour when. it should be a solid blue - I am aware that resetting the router sets it back to factory default settings. So I guess my initial question being, since I have little experience with this situation, what steps can I take that are a bit easy for a person like me to comprehend? Thank you for your time and knowledge in advance! NOTE- I've had this issue before in the past and I solved the situation from some tweaking with the cords and it worked just fine, except I had to use the default password for the router. Although now tweaking with the cords isn't a solution.

I received an Arris TG862 modem from Time Warner Cable quite some time ago and have generally avoided it until now. I had always assumed that the TG862 was already in bridge mode and that I was only using my NetGear R6300 router for wireless, firewall etc. Recently, I was trying to open ports through my R6300, but no matter what they would always remain closed.

Sometime later, I realized that my Arris modem was most likely to blame, so I turned off both its firewall and wireless and switched it over to bridge mode. After restarting the modem, I am unable to connect to the internet. I can still connect to both my router and my modem's login page via the cord that goes from my modem -> router -> computer, but my router is not getting anything. I tried restarting my router as well, but that does not seem to help my situation. In my router's login page, it clearly tells me that the router is receiving no internet from the modem.

For now, I've factory reset'd the modem and the internet connection is fine but I still need to put the modem in bridge mode.

Hello. I've seen a lot of posts with similar problems here and elsewhere, but so far none of the solutions I've tried (resetting the router, power cycling everything, MAC cloning, disabling UPnP, changing RTS, fragmentation, and beacon settings, etc) have worked. My parents got the Comcast bundle with phone and now the internet doesn't work unless the PC is connected directly to the modem. When I hook up the router I can see the wireless signal with my laptop, but the link light on the modem stays off and I can't get online with either computer. (If I switch things so that the computer is hooked to the "internet" port on the router and the modem is connected to one of the four other router ports the link light blinks like it was online, but doesn't actually work.) When I go to the router status I get all zeros.

I discontinued my Verizon serivce and started using Charter which supplies an Arris modem, they told me i could simply plug the ethernet cable from the Arris to my wireless router. However on the back of the Actiontec the WAN line is smaller than the ethernet, it is phone plug size. And there are 4 other ethernet ports. Does this mean that I cannot use my Actiontec, is it useless or is there a way around this? I really want wifi and dont want to have to buy another router if I dont really have to . The action tech is GT784WNV

You could use the Actiontec as a wireless access point (disable its Dhcp server and connect the modem to a LAN port) but to have internet access on multiple devices simultaneously you need a router. You cannot use a modem/router as a router only.

Hey everyone.

I've ran into a problem that I can't quite figure out. My internet connection shows 'no internet access' even though my ISP shows the connection is coming into the house just fine. I usually use a router (NetGear-WNR3500U) but I right now I have the Ethernet connection plugged directly into my PC. I tried directly plugging into my laptop and the internet works just fine. So I know the problem resides in the PC.

Some troubleshooting things I have tried.
-Power cycled my modem, router and PC.
-Repinged my connection from my ISP(Comcast Xfinity)
-Used the reset option on the router and the modem
-I was walked through the internet options needed with the tech support from my ISP to make sure DHCP was enabled and every other setting was correct, and he cleared me that all settings were correct.
-Tried ipconfig commands to /renew and /release my IP
When I tried ipconfig /renew I get the error 'An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server'

-Restored my PC to a restore point where the Internet was working

All of these options did not work.

What I think the problem is and I am not sure how to fix it, when I run the ipconfig /all command my Auto configuration IPv4 Address shows which I was told is a router IP address even though I am plugged directly from the modem to my PC with an Ethernet cord. So I think that's my problem? But I am not sure.

A:modem configuration query

What type of modem? (e.g.56k dial-up?)

The 115200 strongly suggests that is the port speed that it connects to the modem.

As long as that is as fast or faster than the modem speed, no benefit would be obtained by having a faster port speed.

E.G a 56,000 bps modem is well catered for with a 115200 bps port speed.
Its twice as fast as the modem is capable of delivering data.

Supply some more info if possible.

Does the hostname in this firewall have to be the machine the modem/router is connected to?

Have NT 4.0

Recently downloaded upgrade to IomegaWare.

After upgrade and reboot, received message that modem was not properly configured for WinFax. Went to Setup, but could not get modem recognition nor add modem... even thought port search recognized modem on Com 2. Went to Control panel, but when I selected Modem, it would not respond. Checked event log and found following message:

Event ID 7028
The Control Registry key denied access to SYSTEM account programs so the Service Control Manager took ownership of the Registry key.

Anything I can do short of reloading WINNT?

To summarise:

We tried some time ago getting David's XP notebook and his Win7 desktop to share the Internet connection that his desktop has via an ADSL modem and telephone line.

We wanted to get the two PCs to communicate with each other via the Wi-Fi adaptor card in the desktop and the built-in Wi-Fi adaptor in the notebook and then to share the Internet connection. We had no success.

Last weekend we tried to get David's Win7 laptop and Win7 desktop to share the Internet connection that his desktop has. No success again.

At the moment each computer lists the other one in its "My Computer" page.

The TrendNet Wi-Fi software in the desktop indicates that it has 100% signal strength from the laptop.

Both computers are set to "Home" type networks.

We can start a Home Group on either computer but cannot get the other one to join - an error is reported. We use the correct password when trying to join - the password displayed by the other computer when its Home Group is created.

We cannot get the ICS service to stay started. After attempting to start it an error is reported that says "ICS service started and then stopped".

We have checked all ICS's dependant services and they are all running.

I have three computers on a wireless network using a Draytek Vigor 2800g router. Two are connected on WPA and one, a tablet, on WEP (its internal wireless adapter is WEP compatible only) - so I am forced to a mixed network.

All PC are running Windows XP with SP2.

The WEP machine as started to connect using IP address - I had this happen on another machine, but was able to reconfgure the connection to remove it and get it connecting with a dhcp address. It just won't go away on this one. I've tried resetting the router, reconfiguring the connection, Network Magic - in fact it started to do it after I started using Network Magic (is there a relationship)...

ipconfig lists this 169...address as the Autoconfiguration IP Address...but I cannot figure out how to alter it...It should be allocating via DHCP. It does say DHCP and autoconfiguration enabled.

Any suggestions?

Now that I've upgraded to MS Office 2003 I'm having a problem synchronising my Palm with Outlook. I have to stay at the computer. I can't walk away and do something else, because when it comes time to synchronise the address book a dialogue box pops up asking if it's all right to let this program access the book. Protection against hackers.

Is there any way I can configure this so that it knows that it's ok for my synchronising program--the standard one that comes with Palm--to access the address book? As it stands now I have to do it every time by hand.

Windows XP.

A:Outlook address book access configuration

This really doesn't answer your question, but how often do you need to syncronize your address book? Can't you choose to do it manually? Do your addresses change that much that once/twice a week sync couldn't be done manually?

Just curious.

I had a couple of guests over and they were having problems getting online (actually they were on for a day but one laptop dropped) the problem was with the guest laptop itself. While troubleshooting we opened the router as an access point. It gave us a new address for configuration but did not get it all down. It is a Belkin Wireless G router and the previous config address was the new one was 192.168. then 2 0r 1 follwoed by three number sequence I believe starting with 2 (I tried 245 and 254). When I right click on my wireless connection icon and go to properties none of the address work some now start with 70. Is the a way to find the address and if not how do I reset my router?

my internet connection uses PPPoE to connect to the internet. i'm trying to set up the router for this configuration but it does not work. if there is anything else i need to post up pls tell me...help!!

A:Configuration problem for belkin adsl2+ modem with wireless router

the MODEM uses PPPoE, the router should not. the ADSL modem will hold the connection
regardless of anything being active on your router or systems, so imo, the router
should not be configured for PPPoE.

I have my main computer with the following setup

Windows Vista connected to the router then to the modem in Bridge Mode (so that I can use NAT1 with my PS3), thus internet works fine for both, my Main Comp (Desktop) using PPPoe and PS3 using a wireless connection between my router but also through PPPoe.

However, in terms of my secondary computer (Desktop), I have a USB Wireless Adapter, but I do not seem to be able to find the configuration for going on to the internet through the router but to use PPPoe.

The following are my products

Router - D-Link DIR-625
Adapter - D-Link USB Wireless Adapter DWL-G122
Modem - SpeedStream 5200


A:Solved: Modem Bridge Mode + Router + USB Wireless Adapter Configuration

I'm a bit confused. If you're connecting PPPoE with two devices, that indicates you have two modems, which sure doesn't sound right. What are you really doing here?

MODEM (UT300R2) of UTSTARCOM for connecting BSNL Broadband.

While configuring for Single User successfully ,all sites connect
comfortably, but, when I do successful configuration for Multiuser,a
few sites like -- any of the Yahoo or Yahoomail sites and
niftysignals.com --- fail to get connected, and ,showing error as
"Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): The connection was reset".

I had taken up this issue with Yahoo, who told this is a problem to
be resolved by the service provider.The service provider being BSNL,
when I took up with them,they have also been unable to resolve this.

But, surprisingly, this was not such,about 2 years ago, when all
the yahoo sites were opening easily , under Multi Users
Configuration too.

My PC is pentium IV ,with 1GB Memory, and Windows XP with service
pack2 installed.The browsers used are IE6 and Google Chrome.I have
also tried by removing Fire Wall and AVG Antivirus software ,but to
no positive result.

Kindly, help me resolving this issue and if any suggestion,please

I recently installed a DSL modem and hooked it up to my Router. Now both of them have firewalls installed, but if i connect to my modem via the 192.168.xx.xx address, all of my computer mac addresses are listed. why would the modem have that information, when the router is the one who should care...

I have static ips set up for each computer and my router set to DHCP. dont ask why, it just works.

But im worried that all someone would have to do is connect to my modem to get to my computers, they can completely bypass my router, as if it's not there :S
