You can configure the Motorola 2210 without the installation CD. The install CD contains various applications that are not required (and some people consider bloatware). Important Note: This procedure is for existing accounts or new accounts that already have an assigned username and password. If you have a new account and have not registered or been provided a username and password, please click here.

Step 1
Make sure your NIC is set to "Obtain an IP address automatically". Connect the 2210 directly to the PC's NIC with a straight thru CAT5 cable and power up the modem and then the computer. Press the reset button for 10 seconds on the back of the modem.

Step 2
Open a browser session and enter "" in the address field. Enter your BellSouth Username followed by "@bellsouth.net" in the User ID field. Enter your BellSouth Password in the Password field. Re-enter your BellSouth Password in the Confirm Password field. Click on Next. Update the Auto Calender Update Configuration as desired and click Next. The modem will try to initiate a session and then return to the main menu. If you get a connection error message make sure your username and password are correct and click Connect again.

Additional Information
