Question about RCA Thomson Digital Cable Modem (DCM305R)
I was using the USB connection on computer 1 to talk to the RCA DCM425 modem. It works. When I try to use the ethernet connection it doesn't work on computer 1.
Computer 2 does connect to the modem with ethernet.
Is there some setting on computer 1 that has to be changed to allow ethernet? Then I can use the router for both computers.

The modem is communicating with the servers at your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to give your computers an IP address. The ISP may have your modem set up to be issued only one IP address. Thus using both USB and Ethernet could be restricted by your ISP.
The IP address is most likely a dynamic IP that expires after a few days or weeks, unless you bought a business account that has a static IP (which is used for hosting permanent websites).

The setting for the Computer 1, use the network connection wizard to automatically configure the modem to work as a server station. Next, set the IP number manually and the DNS at automatic or is given by your ISP. Now the Computer 2 (workstation) should be connected to a Hub/Switch. The same, go to network connection wizard and select the appropriate connection setting, there are view samples for the connection types so explore them. After the setup, try loading your internet browser.... When done, it should work fine. Keep me posted for any problems.
