Just bought SBG8300 Modem and Wi-fi in one. It has a Wi-fi cord that plugs from Arris modem to computer.  Now I can't carry my laptop anywhere because it is connected to modem. What can I do?

Hello @cljackman.  You can connect to the Wi-Fi network with your laptop.  The SBG8300 Wi-Fi name and password are on a white label located at the bottom of the SBG8300 (looks like the image below).


First disconnect the wired cable from your laptop.  Then go to your Wi-Fi setting in the laptop to select the Wi-Fi name (SSID) that is printed on the label.  For faster Wi-Fi speed, connect to the SSID with “5G”.  Then enter the Wi-Fi security Key that is on the label.  Hope this helps.
