Question about Thomson Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Thomson ST516 v.6 modem that I am trying to install. The set-up wizard does not detect a connection. I have a valid IP address. All of the cables have been connected properly. It's turned on and fully initialized. The ethernet light is blinking. There's no personal firewall software running. I've tried re-setting the speed touch. Any suggestions for what more I could do?

Most of the times is a wrong username / password issue.
most people forget the @ after the username.
for example my username is "jimmy" but in the modem i should enter: jimmy@otenet.gr because otenet is my provider... if i was on forthnet i should write jimmy@forthnet.gr etc.

the easyest way to fix this is to call your providers helpdesk. they can see in their computers if you are connected or not and check your username or password and many other technical things that can help you solve this.

I have a DHG536C Cable modem from Comcast. I am using a Linksys Switch, EZS88W, and the modem can see one computer but nothing eles, what is wrong?


Have you connected all computers, then switched off the switch and modem. now switch off your computers.
If you then power everything up, it should detect the computers, and assign them the correct IP addresses.
If your still having problems, you may need to assign static ip addresses (google for instructions for your computers/switch)

RCA DCM425 modem ethernet connection won't work


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.

I connect fine to it but cannot get to internet


This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem. 2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem. 3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router: 'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces' 4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled. 5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID. 6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key.
ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.

Hi, i have wnr2000 and am trying to set it up. i'm at the setup wizard which says that i already have a valid internet connection. what does this mean and what do i do next?


Basically you need to sign up with an Internet Service Provider in your area. The ISP will advise you the type in modem/Internet connection you need for their service (ie. DSL or cable) and advise you or provide you with a compatible DSL or cable modem. The ISP will provide an installation disc or instructions to configure the modem so it connects with their Internet server.
The modem is then connected to the wnr2000 router's Internet/WAN port with a LAN cable.
If you have already configured the modem and connected it to the wrn2000 router and the setup wizard has detected that you already have a valid Internet connection (it has detected your TCP/IP address which your Internet Service Provider has given you - this IP address is your unique network address - it is similar to your house address in your street, in your suburb, in your state, and in your country). Just click OK and continue with the setup.
