INTRODUCTION
The Motorola CG3500 Communications Gateway cable modem enables you to connect your home or business computer to a
high-speed Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) 1.0 or 1.1 compliant data network. The CG3500 provides
high-speed, bi-directional data access with Radio Frequency (RF) downstream transfer rates up to 38 Mbps and RF upstream
rates up to 10 Mbps. It also provides telephony voice communication features using the Internet Protocol (IP) known as Voice
over IP (VoIP).
Unlike a dial-up modem, the CG3500 is always online. Just open your browser and surf.

protocol to access the CG3500. The CG3500 is compatible
®
®
®
with Microsoft , Macintosh , and UNIX operating systems.
You don’t need special software to operate the CG3500.
Ethernet card

INSTALLATION
NOTE
To turn on your CG3500, simply plug it in. It is
not necessary to unplug it when not in use.
Powering Up the First Time
You must allow 5 to 30 minutes to power up the first time because the
CG3500 must find and lock on the appropriate channels for communications.
1
Be sure that your computer is on and that the CG3500 is unplugged.
2
Plug in the AC power cord for the external UPS. Notice that the lights
on the front panel cycle through this sequence:
•
Power flashes during a self-test. When the self-test is
successfully complete, the light is solid green.
•
Receive flashes while the CG3500 scans for the downstream
channel. When the downstream channel is locked, the light is
solid green.
•
Send flashes while the CG3500 scans for the upstream channel.
When the upstream channel is locked, the LED is solid green.
•
Online flashes while the CG3500 is obtaining configuration
information. When the configuration information is obtained,
the LED is solid green.
During normal operation, the Power, Receive, Send, and Online lights are on
and the Activity light flashes.

TROUBLESHOOTING
This information is to help you quickly solve a problem. Before calling your service provider, try pressing the reset button. Resetting
the CG3500 may take 5 to 30 minutes. Your service provider will need to know the status of the front-panel lights.
The problem
Possible Solution
Green POWER light is off
Check that the power cord is properly plugged into the wall outlet and to the rear panel of the CG3500.
Call your service provider.
Cannot receive or send data
Check the lights on the front-panel. Note the first light from top to bottom that is off. This light
indicates where the error occurred. If the first light that is off is:
Receive
During normal operation, the downstream channel is lost. During startup, the downstream
channel is not acquired.
Send
During normal operation, the upstream channel is lost. During startup, the upstream
channel is not acquired.
Online
During normal operations, the IP registration is lost. During startup, the IP registration was
not successful.
Check that your TV is working, that you have cable TV, and that you have a clear TV picture. If you
aren’t receiving your regular TV channels, your data service will not function.
Check the coaxial cable at the rear panel and outlet and hand-tighten if necessary.
Check the IP address (follow the steps on page 17); call your service provider if you need an IP address.
