  3. Connect an Ethernet cable between the modem/router and a computer.
  4. On the computer, open up a browser and type in the address bar Press Enter.
  5. The username is admin, and the password is motorola. Click on Login.
  6. Click on Advanced on the top right hand corner.

  8. The setting you’re looking for is eRouter Provisioning. Click on the drop down menu to make it say Bridged. Click Save.
  9. Reconnect the coaxial cable while the modem/router is rebooting. Note that, you will no longer be able to log into the interface.
  10. Remove the computer you used to log into the modem/router, and connect the Ethernet cable to your other router instead.
  11. Turn off the modem/router and turn it back on, so that it binds to the MAC Address of the router.
