Re: modem not working right

Do you have both an ethernet and a phone cable connected to either your modem or your computer? If you have an ethernet connection, there is no reason to keep the phone cable connected. They are competing. Remove the phone cable and you should be fine.

I have extra modem on hand from an old service provider. and want to use it with my ps3 but it wont recieve the enternet . is there a way i can reset it to where it would work with my new service

If you bought it from a store, then you just have to call your service provider and they'll fix you up. If it's from the company itself, like the one you get when you get service, then it's locked to that provider.

That should be plug and play.

I would check with Motorla and see if there have been issues with it.

RCA DCM 425C Modem USB driver

I got a different modem from Comcast....a Motorola. Then I got a Belkin USB network adapter. You can plug in an ethernet cable into the Belkin and plug the other end into the computer USB input. This works well for older laptops that have no ethernet input. Then you call Comcast and they configure it over the phone and Viola! It works. So if you have an older laptop like I have, get a Belkin F5D5055 Gigabit USB 2.0 Network Adapter. Plug it in to your USB input and then plug in the enthernet cable from Comcast. Hope this helps someone.

Speedstream 5260 (5262) //EnterNet300

i m sorry to say that enternet300 1.5c is not available these days in online.

instead of enternet , windows xp has a similar built in interface, its 99% similar to enternet

try configurin your isp using this simple procedure, configuring this interface is pretty easy compared to enternet.

so go ahead and give a try . i m sure u wont regret !

•Go to Start->Control Panel •Then Network & Internet Connections
•Then Network Connections
•Select Create a new Connection
•Click Next
•Select Connect to the Internet then click Next
•Select Set up my connection manually then click Next
•Select Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password then click Next
•Type in your ISP's name then click Next (**See Note Below)
•Enter your user name as provided by your ISP. 

for example: You might need to inlude your domain as part of your username.

•Enter your password, then confirm it

•Select Use this account name 
•Select Make this the default Internet connection then click Next
•Select Add a shortcut to this connection to your desktop then click Next
•Hit Connect

i guess this must resolve your issue :)

Does Big Pond and your new ISP dodo use the same values for VPI/VCI?

If not, you need the correct VPI/VCI for your new ISP.

Read the FAQ at DSL Reports on the 5260 and changing the VPI/VCI using EnterNet 300 1.5b or EnterNet 300 1.5c.

Can't get modem to work

speedstream 5260 modems don't have a built-in pppoe in it, so with your win xp OS you just have to make a broadband connection using the new connection wizard by either going to control panel > network connection > new connection wizard or in internet explorer, click on tools menu > internet options > connection tab > click on setup button. follow the wizard and type your username & password on your registered internet account. also make sure you delete your previous broadband connections (if you have set up one before) to avoid conflict with the new connection.
the set up is different if you are using lower versions of windows OS, (like win2000, ME, 98 SE/ FE or 95? ) or Mac 9 you may need to install a pppoe software such as Enternet 300, WinPoet, etc.
