In short, you have to either

  1. renew your ip on Computer 1, or
  2. hard-reboot your cable modem and then reboot or renew your ip on Computer 1.
Details below.

The modem is communicating with the servers at your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to give your computers an IP address. The ISP may have your modem set up to be issued only one IP address. Thus using both USB and Ethernet could be restricted by your ISP.

The IP address is most likely a dynamic IP that expires after a few days or weeks, unless you bought a business account that has a static IP (which is used for hosting permanent websites).

When a computer is not communicating with a Cable Modem or you shift between the connections on the modem, it may be necessary to re-establish configurations. The following can be steps to reset all components to re-establish configurations:
  1. Do a hard-reset on the modem. On the back of the modem is a reset pinhole. If you press the button quickly, this can soft-reset the modem, just restarting the modem. If you press the button and hold it for more than 10 seconds, this can hard-reset the modem, thus resetting and re-establishing configuration with the ISP servers.
  2. Restart the computer or at the command prompt (Start | Run | Cmd | Enter) issue two commands ... "ipconfig /release" and then "ipconfig /renew". This will release your IP and request a new one from your ISP.
These steps are required when adjustments occur especially when shifting between connections on the back of the modem.

you can't set teh modem to bridge mode, however, you can set the router to bridge.
The linksys should have bridge mode configuration in the uer guide.

connected the 2 router together
configure the IP address of the liksys to be inthe same subnet as the moem, but out of the range of the DHCP of the modem. ie. DHCP address through, the linksys should have the IP address as
disable the DHCP on the linksys
setup the wirless just the way you would if ti was the modem.
connect from the modem LAN port to the LAN port on thelinksys. leave the WAN port open.

Make sure the IP of the Router and the IP of the MAC is in the same scope.
E.G. Router: Subnet
Mac: subnet
Typically the router acts as DHCP-server and distributing ip-adresses automatically, when a computer is connected. But the the IP can also be set manually.

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

Not recognized by cable modem

Turn everything off for 2 minutes, cable modem, router and pc.

Turn on modem and wait 2 minutes for the modem to sync to TW.
Turn on router after 2 mins and wait until the router syncs with the modem.
Turn on PC
It sounds like your router lost its connection to the cable modem, which happens from time to time. TW will not help with your router. I worked for a cable co and the router and modem losing sync was the at least 70% of the calls. FYI cable doesn't use DSL,just the phone co.
