Introduction
Congratulations, you have a new Motorola
®
SURFboard
®
cable modem. It provides
high-speed access to the Internet and other online services. This cable modem transmits
and receives data much faster than traditional dial-up or ISDN modems. Unlike a dial-up
modem, your SURFboard cable modem is always online.
Just open your browser and
surf!
You can use your high-speed, upgradeable cable modem to connect one or more
computers in your home or business to the Internet. You can connect:
A single computer equipped with a Universal Serial Bus (
USB
) port directly to the
USB port on the SURFboard cable modem
A single computer equipped with an
Ethernet
adapter directly to the Ethernet port on
the SURFboard cable modem
Two computers; one to the USB port and one to the Ethernet port
Up to 32 computers to a single SURFboard cable modem using an Ethernet hub, as
shown in
“Cabling for Multiple Users”
on page 40
Easier!
Unlike dial-up modems or ISDN, you’re always on,
always connected. For easiest set-up, use the
Installation Assistant on the SURFboard Cable
Modem CD-ROM.
Faster!
Your cable modem is up to 100 times faster than a
dial-up modem. It lets you enjoy surfing the web
without the long wait. Because many network and
other factors can affect performance, the actual
speed will vary.
Better!
Your cable modem is made by the company with
over 50 years of cable TV expertise.
