RCA DCM425 modem ethernet connection won't work


The setting for the Computer 1, use the network connection wizard to automatically configure the modem to work as a server station. Next, set the IP number manually and the DNS at automatic or is given by your ISP. Now the Computer 2 (workstation) should be connected to a Hub/Switch. The same, go to network connection wizard and select the appropriate connection setting, there are view samples for the connection types so explore them. After the setup, try loading your internet browser.... When done, it should work fine. Keep me posted for any problems.

Everytime I disconect my desktop to the modem and connect it to my laptop or vice versa, I have to disconect the power source and restart the modem or else it will not work. Is there anything I can do to...


Easiest thing is to get a router and install that between the Surfboard and the computers.
When you switch over computers, the modem sees a new mac address and it doesn't like it. That's why you have to restart it. The router gives it a permanent mac address and it then serves as many computers as you care to connect. (up to 200 or so!)

Cant access speedstream modem


Turns out that the modem stopped transmitting a wireless connection so that is why we couldnt get it working. After nearly putting a hammer through the laptops, we decided that we had better buy another modem. It now works better than ever :-) (phew)

Modem won't connect


Get a new modem, they are fairly cheap and your ISP should provide you with one for nothing if not real cheap, if not any dsl modem will work from your local box store.

My pc won't connect to the internet


It is the MAC address that needs to be scrubbed from the modem.

power off the desktop, power off the modem, unplug the data cable from the modem, unplug the POWER connection to the modem.

WAIT 3 MINUTES

Connect power to modem, let it reset
Connect data cable to Modem
power on computer

Modem should now connect & work with desktop.

Each time you switch between systems, you may have to do this. More than enough to make me buy a router. =)

Please rate the post. =)

Ethernet vs. usb


FYI for those people trying to use a ethernet and usb cable from a cable modem - it may work for a while but it won't work forever - your ISP will only allow one IP address out of the modem unless you pay for additional addresses (then you need a switch). Each device you have on the modem is fighting for that IP and eventually it will just quit working (if it works at all).

If you want more than one computer on your network (on the Internet or sharing printers/files, etc) then you need a router or a gateway (cable modem/router combo which I DON'T recommend).
