Question about RCA DCM425 DIGITAL CABLE MODEM (RCADCM425)
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..

This issue usally occurs when the router is able to save the data stored or in other words the Router id not able to AUTHENTICATE, but as you already got a new router and you have already done the fireware upgradation of the router. we can also upgrade the firmware of your speedstream modem.
plz do these following steps ,( plz disconect the router from the computer and modem completly while doing the steps )
The Efficient 5260 modems that can be upgraded are as follows:
Look on the label on the bottom of your modem. It should read:
SpeedStream 5260 Ethernet ADSL Modem
Part Number: 060-5660-00x (where x=any number)
Revision: any (all revisions seem to work)
If your part number reads anything else, your modem is most likely not upgradable.
For those curious, 5660 models 003 and earlier do NOT support G.Lite ADSL, only DMT. If you are buying a 5260 or 5660 model secondhand, and your DSL ISP uses G.Lite DSL, it would be a good idea to check with the person selling you the DSL modem.
UPDATE: As of 5660 Firmware v2.3.0(2) and later all 5660 including 5260/5660 hybrids support G.Lite ADSL. It pays to use the latest Firmware.
PLZ REPLY IF THIS HELPS, I WILL TRY TO FIND OUT THE RESOLUTION FOR THIS ISSUE
