I tried installing/configuring my computer (Window Vista) with the Motorola Surfboard SB5101 modem, but it wouldn't let me. I hear a lot of other people are having the same problem. Are there steps I can take to manually configure the modem?

Connect the coax cable to the correct port and connect an ethernet cable between the modem and computer. Else connect a USB cable between the modem and computer and install the driver and software.

Actually, a standard cable modem with an Ethernet connection to Vista should connect right out of the box, no configuration required.
