Definitely if you are planning on hard wiring all 10 computers you need to purchase a hub..Basically you would use one of the 4 ports on your modem. Run ethernet from router to hub input and add up to 16 computers. Over 16 you need a switch. If you are going to have some wire and the others wireless, you just need to security access code from the router,that you should have from the first wireless set up.You should have a setup disk for router if you didn't complete initial setup. Or contact manufacturer to get a replacement disk. As long as all 10 computers have wireless capabilities you just have to enter the access on each individual computer to access your wireless network.

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).

Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

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.

Please excuse my very limited knowledge of wireless connectivity! I currently have Juno DSL, with a 2wire modem (2071 - no wifi) and I want to add wifi capabilities to my house. I assume that I need a...


As I understand it, you currently have a DSL line with a computer plugged into a modem that is attached to the DSL. Now, you want to use wireless throughout your home.

My choice of router manufacturer is Linksys though there are other manufacturers of wireless technology.

What ever manufacturer you choose, get the device. Hook it up according to the instructions you will find inside the device box.

It will go something like this: Attach a cat 5 cable from the "uplink" port on your router to the DSL modem. Plug your wired computer into any of the 4 other ports. Everything is off, right? Cycle the modem - wait for the lights to settle down. Plug in your new wireless, wait for the lights to settle. Turn on your computer. Turn on your wireless. Wou may have to connect using the windows wizard.

A tool I use for network management is Network Magic, a Cisco product. Cisco also owns LlinkSys.

Get the program, free download and eval period. After the eval period you may purchase or continue to use the product with some features disabled.

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

You need to purchase a wireless router. The router will have 5 ports on the back, one in and 4 out. The wire that you have going from your modem to your computer will go to the "in" port on the router. The out ports can be used for wired connections, and the wireless antenna will connect to any wireless computers.

Any computer that you want to connect wirelessly to your new router will need to be wireless-ready. For a desktop computer, you will need to buy and install a wireless PCI network card. Most laptops have built-in wireless.

You can buy a wireless router at most "big box" stores, like Best Buy, Office Depot, even WalMart sometimes carries them. A wireless router will cost between $75 and $150.

Cable modem


Go and buy a router. Plug your existing modem into the WAN port and your computers into the LAN port. You could even get a wireless router and connect your upstairs computer wireless. Be sure to lock down your SSID (Wireless Access Point Broadcast Name) so your neighbors or people driving by don't get on and do bad things on your network.

Need to hook up Belkin G wireless router to Motorola SB5120


Plug your cable line into your modem, make sure it's tight, but don't use a tool. Next plug the ethernet line from the modem to your PC ethernet port. Then plug in your power to the modem. Allow your modem to sync. Don't use the USB line at all. Do not even hook it up unless your computer doesn't have a working ethernet line. Don't run the disk either, it will only install the modem driver that is only used if you use USB.

If you have issues connecting after that, you may have to go into your ethernet adapter settings and make sure that it is using DHCP. DSL usually uses a different setting (PPP I think) and you will not be able to connect.

By the way, excellent choice in modems.
