Bridge RCA Thomson DCM315R

I am trying to use remote desktop. My computer that I am trying to connect to has the setup of Cable Modem to the netgear router wired to my computer. I believe that I need to setup my cable modem to bridge to the router otherwise I think I am dealing with two different internal ip addresses and i believe it will confuse my system. I tried port forwarding from the router but It still doesn't find my computer. Any thoughts?

Usually cable providers provide public ip directly to your company ( already bridged ). so no need to configure your modem to bridge.
- Connect the computer directly to the modem and if possible, let me know the ip address of your PC, So we can find the modem already bridged.
- If its already bridged, then Open the ports on your Router ( port number : 3389 for TCP ) or else you may try DMZ Host on your router to check whether it works.

DMZ ( Demilitarize Zone ) host which opens all ports on your network and shows ur computer to the outside Network which is not really secured one. but you can try it for testing purpose whether it let you to use remote desktop.

Hope this will help you

Can i connect a netgear JFS524 directly to acable modem

Yes for sure you can do that.As the connector is RJ45.The only think is that for Thomson you need a cross-wired cable to connect to the netgear JFS524. If netgear do have Uplink port then you can use normal or straight through cable.For more infor Cross-wired cable are use to connect between network devices.

How to connect a rca thomson router to wifi

You are trying to connect to a modem, not a router, the router, a wi-fi version, is what you are connecting to your network.
First, power off all equipment, computer and modem, use the network cable you have connected to your computer from this modem and disconnect from the computer, connect it to the differently colored port on one end of the Belkin, the others have numbers, connect a network cable from one of the numbered ports to the computer.
Now power on the RCA modem, wait until lights are steady, then turn on the new Belkin router, wait until lights are active, just a few moments, then power on your computer, you should now have internet access and be able to locate the manual from the Belkin's website to further your setting up a passphrase or setting up some security on your wi-fi.
