I don't have cable but in order have the wireless cable do i need to have cable installed first?


Hi,
Yes you certainly need a cable connection before you can use the wireless capabilities of the cable modem.
Without a cable connection the modem is useless.

How do I lock my RCA DCW615R router?


You Router supports either WEP or WPA Security. First thing to do is enable the security, it will become difficult to enter from other users.
IF your using a default gateway (192.168.x.x) which is your Router Address. You can enter by Internet Explorer to go inside the Firmware of your Router (http://192.168.0.1) then enter.

This is an example of firmware worksheet:

The Rca DCW615R


You didn't say who your cable internet provider is, and many (or most, including Comcast) such providers require that the cable modem's MAC address be registered with their network. It's a security feature to prevent unauthorized (read: unpaid) users to access their network. The MAC address is usually found on a sticker at the bottom or rear of your modem. Write it down, then call your cable company's tech support the register it. It should work just fine after that.

RCA DCW615R Wireless/Cable Modem has problems loading some websites.


your could try power cycling it, thats what works for me, i think it has been running for too long, thats why her internet connection loads up pages slower than before, and as for the weather websites, i am confused by that as well. but, here is how you power cycle:

1.) unplug your modem.
2.) wait about 1 minute.
3.) plug everything back in and wait about 1 minute.
4.) test out any website, and if still doesnt work, check all of the wires pluged into it, and unscrew the cable wire, and rescrew it back in slowly.
5.) and when all of this still doesn't work, then contact your internet service provider, because chances are, its something wrong with that modem, or your internet service provider.

RCA DCW615R WIRELESS Cable Gateway , Factroy Installed Firmware needed.


I had the same issue with my RCA DCW615R. First time my ISP Comcast flashed it back to the old version. This time I could not find anyone who new how to do that. I used to have the software and I have searched the net. Seems they provider RCA does not have it.

This time I called Comcast because I noticed that the 192.168.0.1 brought me to their software update. They supplied me with the user name and password. I was able to get into the firmware and change all the settings using the new firmware. I think the only reason they gave it to me is because my printer is a network printer and it would not work unless I could access the firmware.

The old 192.168.100.1 does not work anymore because that was Cable Modem mode or CM mode. The new address 192.168.0.1 does work but you will need the user name and password from your ISP, this is RG mode or residential gateway mode.

Liked the old firmware better but they both do the same thing. Seems the Gateway works better with the new update. Still I would like to find the old firmware not sure why RCA doesn’t have it.

You can have comcast allow you to log in using the new firmware at 192.168.0.1. You will need the user name and password from them. This will alow you into the firmware so you can change settings, including the PCMCIA card.
