Different type of signal coming out of the cable modem. You need a wireless router, any good brand, connected to the cable modem.
Hi, I just switched from ATT dsl to a Time Warner cable modem. It turns out that the time warner isn't wireless....which is pretty inconvenient! The Time Warner guy told me I could use my ATT wireless router to get the wireless. it's not working, so I am wondering if anyone knows if it is, in fact, possible.
Computer I am using is a Dell Inspiron....the ATT cable modem is a 2wire Gateway 2701HG-B and the ATT model is a motorola sb5101 surfboard cable modem...the Time Warner guy's instruction was to plug the ethernet cable into the wireless modem rather than the computer. Doesn't seem to work - the ethernet and wireless lights are blinking green, but the DSL and internet lights are blinking red
