Ru using a cable connection or a dsl connection?
what you can go is reset the modem and then try.if it is a cable connection then your isp settings is automtically picked up by the modem but if it is dsl and if your isp has given you user name and password check if it matches with the earlier details...
im sure it is not a hardware issue as i have worked with the a reputed isp company so probably they have changed the settings which you old modem doesnot identifies,so we need to configure the old modem..

PC link light is off while Internet and cable activity lights' are solid. Can not connect to the internet. Can it be fixed? If so, how?


The PC link light is your indicator if there is a device connected to the modem through the ethernet port. If its off, then you may need to check the connection once again whether it be a PC connected hardwired to the modem or a router. Replacing the ethernet cable can also help because it might also be a defective ethernet cable. As long as the internet and cable activity lights are both solid, its ok because that means your modem is receiving the signal from your provider.

I just recently had an RCA dcm425 modem installed today. I, stupidly, did not check the Internet connection before the installation guy left. Now, the cable activity light is flashing and the cable link...


it is common for the network port to fail on the DCM425s. a couple of things to try...1. a new network cabe2. hold the reset for 30 seconds (small hole on the back)3. try using the usb connection (this will not allow for a router connection and XP should give you a genaric driver so that you can see if the modem is working other than the network port)
if all else fails, it would probably be easier to take the modem into the local office and ask for an exchange. trust me, i am a service tech for a cable company and it is a lot easier to take the modem in for an exchange than arguing with some one on the phone who has no clue how to trouble shoot a modem and then waiting for another incompetent tech (if he didn't check to verify that it was working he was incompetent) back out to screw it up again. also ask if they have any motorola modems... there more reliable.

Turn the cable-modem off.
Unplug the AC poewr to the cable-modem.
Turn the router off.
Unplug the AC power.
Reconnect the AC power to both the cable-modem and the router.
Turn the router on -- this off/on sequence should "reset" the cable-modem and the router.

If the router still does not work, replace it.

If the cable-modem does not work, get RoadRunner to replace it, if they want to keep you as a paying customer.

I see that people are asking about driverss for the RCA dcm425 cable modem. I just bought a new computer, and I connected it to the my old dcm425 modem through a router and it works just fine. I didn't...


The trick about all this is that the software does not configure the computer, but the modem.
So once it has been configured through a computer then plugged to a router, any computer plugged to the said router will have access to the Internet.

The whole process of installing/configuring will happen if you replace the old modem and/or plug a new computer directly to the modem.

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.

DSL connection not being shared by Linksys RV042 Dual Wan router


Looks like your "modem" is actually a gateway, as is common with DSL devices. It's acting like a modem and a router. So you're actually connecting a router to your RV42. You could get this to work a couple ways.
1. Leave the modem acting like a router and configure the WAN connection on the RV42 as a static IP, and use the IP of the modem. You may also be able to use "obtain IP automatically" in the WAN connection. This way, the modem stores your PPOE information and just forwards the traffic to the RV42. Any devices behind the RV42 won't know the difference.
2. Configure the modem as just a modem (no routing). Your ISP should be able to talk you through this, but in the modem configuration you can look for what's usually called "bridged mode." Then you would enter the PPOE information in the RV42. This is my preferred method.

Airlink router


Albert the unfortunate problem with cable modems is the equipment serial number. when your modem is deactivated by the company the serial number becomes locked in other words they view the modem as a loss and the only way to re-activate it is by a different user not your account. I know it is a stupid way of doing things but they think it will stop cable theft.. Goofy huh.. Anyway have a great day.. Be mucho blessed... mark

Won't connect


Sounds like your modem isn't provisioned with teh cable company... Since the old one still works... IF you purchased this modem and your cable co. allows you to own your own, then you should call them and give them the serial numbers to get it turned on...if they provided this modem they havent updated their system so still call them.  Hope this helps.
