    There maybe a small button on the back of the modem you need a paperclip to push and hold for 15 secs to restore factory settings, but that would not be considered flashing.

Ive never heard of flashing a modem before. A router you can.

Who is your ISP provider? They can get you a new modem.

    Your provider can flash the modem for you too through the cable line.

Can you connect a router to a dcm425 router


Yes. My "home" network starts with the cable-modem, with an Ethernet cable between the cable-modem and the "uplink" port on my wireless router, and up to 4 computers connected to the 'LAN' ports on the router, plus support for my wireless devices (laptop, iPhone, tablet).

I see that people are asking about driverss for the RCA dcm425 cable modem. I just bought a new computer, and I connected it to the my old dcm425 modem through a router and it works just fine. I didn't...


The trick about all this is that the software does not configure the computer, but the modem.
So once it has been configured through a computer then plugged to a router, any computer plugged to the said router will have access to the Internet.

The whole process of installing/configuring will happen if you replace the old modem and/or plug a new computer directly to the modem.

I have a dcm425 and when online gamming the router restarts itself every 10 minutes...


That's obviously a problem with your unnamed router, and not the dcm425.
Try looking for and flash upgrading (or downgrading) your router.
I had a Linksys router that I always kept up to date with the latest firmware, and one day it started doing the exact same thing we're talking about here. I had to downgrade the router to a previous version to fix the issue. Newer isn't always better!

Can i hook up 2 computers to the rca dcm425 without a wireless router


RCA DCM425 digital cable modems only have one Ethernet cable located in the back of the device. In order to have two computers connected at the same time you will need to have router. The router will connect to the Ethernet port on the back of the RCA modem and then you can have up to 4 computers connected directly to the router using Ethernet cables. If any of your computers are wifi compatible they will also be able to get online by using the wifi from the router.

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425


First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

Internet Light keeps blinking - all others are out - No internet


HI,

Blinking green internet light is normal BUT you must check if theres any dsl outage in your area..You can contact your ISP for that.

But then maybe you can try this:

Turn your PC off > then you modem or router.. after 60 secs turn your modem or router ON first then your PC and check if you can go online.

If you called your internet service provider {ISP} and no reported outage let me know and we'l solution for that.

Keep me posted.

Cheers.
