New out of the box modem not working

We bought a modem to get cable through the university in town ( saves like 20 bucks a month ) only catch is : You have to buy the modem yourself. Well we got this one, gave them the MAC # and all that, guy comes and tries to install the cable, and he says it's the modem. Apparently they have seen this happen before with these right out of the box, so I am wondering if there are any tricks to try?

Intermittent cable or modem problem

Check the connectors on the in-house cable, if they can move in their sockets slightly, they may become intemittent as temp and humidity changes. If you can replace the cable with a new one of a known brand. If not try pushing cable plugs all the way into each socket and surrounding the plug with Blu-Tak to stop any slight movement. If this does not work, check or replace the power supply for the modem, it may be occasionally dropping its voltage, due to other power demands within your house. A good quality power supply will keep a stable voltage for your modem.

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.

I've recently switched to charter as my providerand they installeda modem ( sbv51220) which works fine, but the monthly charge of five dollars irks me. I bought another modem from Bestbuy at the urging of...

Do you have phone service with Charter as well? If so the modem you have been provided is made to run both the phone service and the internet. If you purchased your own modem from best buy the phone portion would not be present so that is why those connections are not on the new one.

To cut to the point the new modem will work just fine for you internet but bear in mind it will now require another splitter for the coax cable line and each time that you add a splitter you will loose a portion of the incoming signal and this may affect your services.

I would look around for a better deal anyway.
I dont know of any ISP that charges you for the rental of a modem.

Internet only works for 20 minutes after restart.

Yep. Guessing the router is older. They don't last long. Modems live forever but routers average 6-18 months. Other things are funny about this. Your router works on 2.4 ghz. Cordless phone and microwaves do too. if you have a cordless base close to the router it can knock it offline. If your router is old get a new one. MAKE SURE IT IS AN "N" SERIES AND NOT A "G" SERIES

Bought a Belkin router model # f5d8326 4 v2 was told this worked for cable modems not working yet

Make sure the modem is configured properly so it would detect the router. Most of the time, modems now has DCHP capability, meaning it has the ability to hold the username and password you ISP has provided you. The most effective way of making modems work with routers is to bridge the modem first before connecting the router.

Bridging the modem is done by opening the interface of the modem. To pull up the interface of the modem, type the default gateway of the modem in the address bar of your browser(intenet explorer)

Look for the "connection configuration" button and choose "bridge ethernet" as the connection type.

Once the modem is bridged, connect the router to the modem, then configure the router to set the connection type to pppoe. Once done, type your username and pw your ISP have provided the save the settings. This should cpnnect you online..

I have no idea why this happens, but unplugging it for a while and reseting it seem to help.

Random Disconnect: PCX 1100U

Toshiba 1100 modem are no longer compatible with any service providers anymore. The reason for this is Toshiba quit making cable modems and no longer supports them. Since they no longer support their modems, they don't write firmware to make them DOCSIS 2.0 compatible and since most service providers use 2.0, your DOCSIS 1.1 modem will not function correctly. Actually what is really happening is the 1100 modems cannot correctly decipher the 2.0 and are constantly changing their transmission power levels. You definitely need another modem, and if you are using Cox, ask about their refurbished ones for about 20 bucks.
