Comcast is my service provider and I have had an RCA DCM 245R modem for almost 10 years. Until recently it has worked fine. On an ever increasing basis I am losing internet connection and when I look at...


Hi,

It can be an issue with the modem or with the line. When the line drops the link then the modem shows only two lights. And, when you power cycle the modem (unplug and replug it) it establish the session again with the comcast.

So, i'll suggest you to get the line checked first and if comcast finds that line is working fine then get the modem replaced.

RCA Thomson digital cable modem internet light is flashing and no connectivity. Is it the modem or the internet service? Comcast was less than helpful...


looking at the internal modem page.usually:192.168.100.1. on your browser.explorer works best for this look up. you dont need internet access for this. once inside you can look at signal strength coming from the street and signal going back. if its out of spec.then that needs to be corrected. Note :call your provider and ask for down/up stream
specifications. also weather or not your modem is ( EOL) End of life.
Good Luck.

My laptop indicates that I am connected to my wireless connection but I am unable to connect to the internet. Any advice?


Has your wireless router/modem been configured to your ISP's instructions.
You should also contact your ISP to get them to test the connection to your router/modem especially if you have a DSL modem.

Works with xp computer but cannot get my new vista premium computer to recognise it . I've tried cmd/ipconfig etc but no joy


Turn the modem off.
Turn the modem on.
Try: IPCONFIG /RENEW
to get an IP-address.

Does your Internet Service Provider require you to "register" each computer that you connect to the modem? Obviously, the new computer has a different Ethernet adapter than the old computer.
Thus, the ISP may be allowing _only_ the old Ethernet adapter to be used -- until you contact your ISP.

DHG535-2 and LAN switch issue


It sounds like the LInksys that they replaced was also a router. A router will route packets to multiple pc's that are connected to it. The cable modem just sees the router as 1 pc. When you use a switch, the cable modem will see all of your PC's. and Comcast just allows 1 pc. You will need to buy a router to use more than 1 PC which will be cheaper than using Comcasts Home Networking service which will network up to 4 pcs

Vista/router/wireless connection


Make sure that all the wireless cards are set in the properties to obtain an ip address automatically, dissable the wired lan adpter connections as this can confuse the router. Restart all the pc's and then right click on the wireless pc icon in your task bar and then click view wireless networks and make sure that you are connected to your network and that the internet is available, known as local & internet in Vista. open up internet explorer, go to tools, internet options and delete browsing history cookies and temp files and then refresh the page as the proxy server will need to refresh.
