Re: do I need to open ports?

There are no ports to open on the DCM425, as it's a cable modem, not a firewall. Earthlink/Time Warner will likely not be truthful when it comes to blocking ports on their end. Would it be possible to change the port that your PS2 is using?

Same goes for the bittorrent question, only I'd switch to uTorrent and different ports as well.

Use a 2-wire or 4-wire cable to connect from the telephone-jack to the telephone-port on your DSL modem/router combination device.

Use an 8-wire Ethernet cable to connect from one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to the network-port on your laptop.

Then, you will have Internet access, and, if this router also has a "wireless" capability, you can configure it to provide wireless access to your computer(s).

Your Internet Service Provider will have provided a DSL-adapter to you.
Connect one 4-wire cable from the adapter to the telephone wall-jack.
Connect one (8-wire) Ethernet cable from the adapter to the network port on your Dell.

First test the Internet connection by connecting a LAN cable from your DSL or cable modem to your computer and see if you can get into the Internet.
If you can't access the Internet then phone your ISP and get them to test your connection to your modem.
If the Internet connection is OK then click on this WEB site and follow the instruction to configure the PS3 :-

1st time installation: cannot install modem properly

Hey try this one, if doesn't work let me know. First you have to powercyle your modem - meaning turn it off for 10 to 25 seconds then power it up again. Then check status of the modem lights. It should all be in solid green. Else you have to check if cables are properly connected - Data cable (green cable) one end connected to the filter with labeled "DSL/PHN" or the one with monitor engraved, then other end connected to the green port on the back of your modem. Then check also connection of filter to walljack. After which check status of the lights. If still not all in solid green. Check devices near to your modem, these might be the reason for interference of DSL signal. Electronic such as monitors, speakers... must be 2-3 feet away from your modem. Check modem lights. If all in green, test connection. Also there should only be one phone jack connected to your DSL phone line.

Configuring DSL for All RJ-45 Jacks

the simpliest way is to have a wireless/ wired 4 ports router and install it beside your modem and locate where your Cat 5 cables central end is. Identify the Cat 5s that are connected to the 5 locations of your PCs if all of them are not capable of wireless connection you need to add a switch (4 port or 8 port) which you also need to connect to one Lan port of your router.

Hope this helps.

Router setup help

You need to connect the cable that you used to connect to your PC, to the WAN port on the router (it might say internet). Then, you need to connect one of the computers to one of the LAN ports (might have numbers, so you connect it to 1). You then need to login to the router through your browser (generally the address is but you should check the documentation) and ask your ISP for the PPPoE information so you can setup your router to dialup for you (otherwise you could use the dialer you've had on your PC, but that doesn't work as well because you might have to share the internet connection).
