3Com ISDN lan Modem-Model 3C892

I just purchased this 3com modem new. I have hooked everything up as stated in the instructions. When I pull my web browser to get the wizard to set SPID numbers and access controls, it just says "page not found". Thats just the problem, Im not running IE 3.1, I have IE 7, I also am not running Win95, I have XP home. and when i try to connect to the modem through, absolutly nothing happens, it is connected, and it is powered up. But all it does is cycle. nothing more nothing less. Please help. Thanks.

Are you cable user? register the modem's  mac address to Internet service provider.

make sure that the Local area connection IP address of you PC  is not static.

How do i change from having a wire to the modem to wireless


Thank you for using Fixya!

In order to go wireless you need to know if you model has wireless capability (ask your Internet provider or from who you purchase the modem). If the modem does not have that capability then get a wireless access point or wireless router (I suggest a wireless router so you can have multiple computer connected to the internet). There are lots of brands out there namely, Linksys, Netgear, D-link or Belkin.

Hope this helps.

I bought a 3com 3crwe554g72 and when it connect with my ADSL modem the speed will become very slow (-50%). I update to the lastest firmware but no help

3com used to be good things back in the old days. But this hardware is probably self destructing in some way (the problem is widespread, the manufacturer claims it is an old product and gives no solution). Do NOT buy network products from 3com (HP today). Correct me if I am wrong..

Problem with 3Com WL-542 wireless router

if you are using DSL you will need to consult your isp about proper router configuration... meaning the modem will have to be bridged and the router configured to authenticate for you. this avoids an issue called dual NAT in the U.S. dsl providers use PPPoE for authentication i am not sure which of the available options you will use in New Zealand, and how to configure the options for it. if you are using cable or some other type of connection this will not help :/
I hope this helps if not see if you can tell me what kind of isp you have

3com router dmz doesnt allow to ssh to the asa

undo the dmz and forward the ports 22 for ssh and any other services you need to the cisco. Ok dmz is not good... 3com calls port forwarders virtual servers just add what you need there... hope that helps.
