Question about RCA DCM425 DIGITAL CABLE MODEM (RCADCM425)

1 Answer

I keep losing my connection plus it downloads super slow

When i do have a connection while I am downloading music the download speed starts out fast but drops down to a slow grind. I found if I disable my connection then enable it, it sometimes goes fast to slow again and sometimes stop altogether. I was wondering if it was a modem problem or maybe a usb cable problem. also when on the internet I lose my connection.
If anyone can help I thank you in advanced!!!!

I have the same problem. I have narrowed the problem down to having too many simultaneous connections.I can surf all day long with no problem but when I start downloaded via a torrent or if I play an online game in a room with 32 players, my connection eventually grinds to a halt. No amount of tech visits to your house will ever uncover the problem because your line speeds and voltages will appear normal. Swapping out the modem for another of the same kind won't fix the problem because the issues appears to be inherent in the modem. When downloading torrents you'll have to limit the number of connections your computer will accept.

Engenious eoc2611 slow speeds when i changed internet providers


No setting would have any effect on that. If you are downloading the same file from the same site on both wireless and wired, and nothing changed other than your ISP, then there is not much that can be said other than wireless is always questionable, anything in the environment including your neighbors moving furniture, or adding or changing their own wireless network can effect your wireless network. The connection to the wireless access point would not effect the speed of the wireless network. That being said if the tests that you are doing involve different files or downloading from different sites, keep in mind that Comcast limits the speed of connections to sites if they feel it is using too much bandwidth and the owner of the site does not pay fees to Comcast.

Ive been having problems with my internet connection i have called my ISP and they've sent people to my house to fix it but every time my internet connection has gotten worse my modem is RCA model:DCM425...


Cable internet is a bit trickier to troubleshoot because it uses coaxial/optical infrastructure from your ISP to your home. Also, depending on the fine print of your contract, you may be stuck with them. Usually ISPs have a clause that they'll deliver UP TO 15mbps but they dont guarantee that you'll get that speed. Your browsing speed depends on the quality of cabling, distance from their main facility, distance from the closest optical link, distance from the closest amplifier, and amount of connections drawing connection from that same amplifier.
I'd also suggest that you run pingtest.net and see the quality of your connection when the internet feels fast, and when you think it's slow. Raw speed is not the decisive measurement. It's mostly a marketing trick. Usually, what matters is the ping rate and jitter. In other words, how fast two computers can communicate both ways without losing the integrity of the connection (ping) and what is the amount of noise (jitter).

My hp laptop has slowed to dialup speed. How can check to see if its the directv modem, netgear router or laptop?


There are two common reasons that a pc slows, 1, if you have downloaded several things to your PC ie: programs, games, music, and/or pitures. This eats memery, even if you dont run them at the same time. Solution upgrade you memery stick. 2, You have regestry issues, ez to fix just buy or download a reg fix program. I like RegCure my self. How ever I see that you have a satilite internet connection? Is this correct? The problem with satilite is that it is faster than dialup, but not by much, yet still much slower than DSL. or Cable and connection and speed is affected by weather. If satilite is all you can get in your location then try one or both solutions. My suggestion is to get a better internet provider first, DSL if Cable is not available. Good Luck hope this is helpfull.

Slow downloading


the porblem seems to be at your ISP.
you need to check with your ISP and verify wha is your upload and downlaod speed. most of the time you should have 5Mb upload and 10Mb download as min.
the speed you are seeing is more like a dialup 133Kb.

Speed Test — About Broadband Speed Here's some information to help you understand your results. There are a lot of things that factor into your speed test results. Download and upload speeds, backbones, networks, latency, ping times, and DNS servers.
Download
Download is a measure of how fast your connection delivers content to your computer or local area network.
Upload
Upload is the measure of how fast content is delivered from your computer or local area network to others on the Internet.
To achieve optimal delivery of T1 or SDSL services, download and upload speed should match or at least be very close. This is very important for applications like VoIP, email, on-line gaming and other interactive programs. Upload speed is even more important if you are operating an email, web or file server at your location.
Kbps
Kbps transfer rate = kilobit per second transfer rate. There are 8 bits in a byte, so we would divide kbps by 8 to get KB/sec transfer rate.
