Re: gateway clean install issues

Re-installing your OS won't help..
Configuring your connections may help

1. Go to control panel.
2. choose network and internet connections
3. click the network connections
4. create new connections.

If you're using an IP addesss, pls. assign an ip address, subnet mask, default gateway, DNS1 and DNS2.

Ran the install cd for 2 wire on my restored Windows XP pc. Will not show an internet connect. My laptop is working wireless off the same gateway.

When you restored the pc, did you make sure the drivers where re loaded.
Have you tried control panel / internet options / connections / lan settings.
It should have automatically obtain settings ticked

My gateway laptop keeps shutting down. it is brand new

How long have you had it on. If you are not venting the heat out away from the processor, it will shut down to protect it. I suggest either take a small fan and blowing towards the computer. Or they make a chill pads for laptops about thrity dollars.

New Modem with a router for wireless Laptop

Some routers have a kind of built in firewall. You need to let the router/modem that it is okay for it to let this information pass through it. Here are your instructions

Follow the steps in this chapter and use the Gateway’s web-based utility to configure the Gateway. This chapter
will describe each web page in the Utility and each page’s key functions. The utility can be accessed via your web
browser through use of a computer connected to the Gateway. For a basic network setup, most users only have to
use the following screens of the Utility:

• Setup. On the Setup screen, enter the settings provided by your ISP.

• Security. Click the Administration tab and then the Security tab. The Gateway’s default username and
password is admin. To secure the Gateway, change the Password from its default.

There are seven main tabs: Setup, Wireless, Security, Access Restrictions, Applications & Gaming, Administration,
and Status. Additional tabs will be available after you click one of the main tabs.

• Setup. Enter the Internet connection settings on this screen.

• Basic Wireless Settings. You can choose your wireless network settings on this screen.

• Wireless Security. This screen allows you to choose your wireless security mode.

• Wireless Network Access. This screen displays your wireless network access list.

• Advanced Wireless Settings. On this screen you can access the advanced wireless features.

• WDS. The wireless distribution system feature is accessed on this screen.

• Firewall. This screen contains filters and the Block WAN Requests feature. Filters block specific internal users
from accessing the Internet and block anonymous Internet requests.

• VPN Passthrough. To enable or disable IPSec and/or PPTP Passthrough, use this screen.

Zoom adsl x6

If the Internet light is off it means you are not either authenticated at your provider or your configurations are wrong on the modem. If you go to your command prompt and type ipconfig and check your IP address and your default gateway. The IP address on your default gateway would be your router put that IP address on your browser and should be able to see your modem setting and any error messages that could help resolve your issue

RCA DCW615R WIRELESS Cable Gateway , Factroy Installed Firmware needed.

I had the same issue with my RCA DCW615R. First time my ISP Comcast flashed it back to the old version. This time I could not find anyone who new how to do that. I used to have the software and I have searched the net. Seems they provider RCA does not have it.

This time I called Comcast because I noticed that the brought me to their software update. They supplied me with the user name and password. I was able to get into the firmware and change all the settings using the new firmware. I think the only reason they gave it to me is because my printer is a network printer and it would not work unless I could access the firmware.

The old does not work anymore because that was Cable Modem mode or CM mode. The new address does work but you will need the user name and password from your ISP, this is RG mode or residential gateway mode.

Liked the old firmware better but they both do the same thing. Seems the Gateway works better with the new update. Still I would like to find the old firmware not sure why RCA doesn’t have it.
