Question about RCA DCM425 DIGITAL CABLE MODEM (RCADCM425)

1 Answer

I need to enter port numbers for my rca modem to allow my ps3 to access the internet and I do not know how to do so, or who to contact to do so. Any intel someone could give, would be greatly appreciated.

    I am also using a wireless router with the RCA modem. the numbers for both are as follows:



    ROUTER - RCA by Thomson

    Model: DCM425



    MODEM - Linksys 2.4 GHz

    Model:WRT54GS v1.1





    If you need any other intel, be sure to let me know. I check my mail every few days, so it may take a bit to get back to you. Also I can't even begin to know how to open the ports, so if you could let me know how to do that as well, I'd appreciate it. Thanks

Hey,

The user manual of the RCA modem has the instructions on how to open the ports, do you only have the modem in the house, or you have a wireless router or any other kind of router or network devices?

Please send me the brand and model of the RCa modem and also from any other devices that you have there and I'll look into it.

Below are the network port details.


The port numbers for PlayStation®Network servers used for this are TCP: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP: 3478, 3479.


For voice / video chat and online game play, direct communication with other PS3™ systems is used for data transmission during voice / video chat and online gaming. The port number used for this is UDP: 3658. However, you may need to use a different port number when you are connected using a NAT router.
Hints

  • When you are using a router, direct communication with other PS3™ systems may be restricted depending on the type of router and its settings. When using a UPnP-compatible router, enable the UPnP feature.
  • Communication may be restricted by routers and security functions provided by Internet service providers. Refer to the instructions supplied with the network device and the information from your Internet service provider.

How to connect a rca thomson router to wifi


You are trying to connect to a modem, not a router, the router, a wi-fi version, is what you are connecting to your network.
First, power off all equipment, computer and modem, use the network cable you have connected to your computer from this modem and disconnect from the computer, connect it to the differently colored port on one end of the Belkin, the others have numbers, connect a network cable from one of the numbered ports to the computer.
Now power on the RCA modem, wait until lights are steady, then turn on the new Belkin router, wait until lights are active, just a few moments, then power on your computer, you should now have internet access and be able to locate the manual from the Belkin's website to further your setting up a passphrase or setting up some security on your wi-fi.

Cannot connect to internet via my comcast internt modem the modem is fine and i have an IP Adress show up but no connect what do I need to do?


I have Comcast as well, and am running through a router and my modem. What I did was reset both the modem and the router at the same time, which will allow the modem to recognize the router and your PS3 should connect then. If not, manually set your firewall to allow the PS3 access through your modem. Comcast can do this for you, but will charge a fee. Let me know if you have further issues.

  • Ethernet cable. (Available with the PS3)

When you have a wired connection to the Internet, it is not necessary to adjust any of the default settings. (It is done automatically). If you aren't able to connect with the default settings, follow the instructions to adjust the settings.

  1. Select "Network Settings" under "Settings" in the home menu, press the x_button.jpg button.
  2. Select "Internet Connection Settings", press the x_button.jpg button.

Had my ps3 for year and half now, never played online (80710102)


Ok first off create a psn account online via computer, this is free of charge. Then after that connect your ps3 via cable to your modem. turn it on and access network settings. Then select internet connection settings, select easy. After it is finished select test connection. Should this time out it means you have a faulty connector somewhere, try checking your cables and the ports on the ps3 and modem. But if it states connected, back out and go to network via your ps3 dashboard then select sign in and enter your account info from your psn account.

Can't get on the internet with ps3


if your wireless modem/router is set up to enter a keycode you will need to get that first. you maybe able to connect automatically but usually you will need it.
go to your settings menu. scroll to internet settings and set up. run auto to search for router. be sure to know if you are using WEP or WPK key to access the router/modem. set any other settings that come up to auto.

I have no computer or cable and need to set up internet on my PS3


??? A router will NOT replace your modem; the router won't work without the modem. If you're going to give advice, please make sure it is somewhat correct.

Okay. So first you need the telephone cord to go from the phone jack into the DSL port on your modem. Then you need the Ethernet cable that came with your modem (looks like a phone cord but much bigger) to go from the ethernet port in the back of the modem into the wan or internet port on the router. Verify that the DSL and internet lights are on on the modem.

For the rest of the setup, watch this . It will walk you step by step in connecting your PS3 to the wireless internet. Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Modem to router to hub to wireless


What you can do is test the PS3 while wired to the router first. If that does not work you may need to forward ports on your router so it will allow the PS3 to accept connections through the router firewall.

ENTERNET CONNECTIONS FOR PS-3 80GB


if you want to be able to play your ps3 downstairs with your modem upstairs, you might consider buying a Wireless Router that has Wireless G , for your PS3.
This will allow you to access your Internet all around your house without wires. I suggest looking for one that features MIMO or range plus max, or anything else that increases your signal range since there is a fair amount of distance involved.

The alternative is relocating your modem downstairs and hooking it up to the PS3. BUT your computer wont have Internet.

Ps3


Are you going to connect your PS3 wired to your router or wireless?
1. check first if ps3 is working behind rca modem.
2. then connect a pc directly to your linksys router
3. open configuration page of linksys by typing your gateway on your browser. (usually it is by default 192.168.1.1)
4. go to applications and gaming tab
5. you'll find there port forwarding..key in your number there
> i guess your numbers are like 88 and 3764 (something like that)
6. if your trying to connect your playstation wirelessly, you need to know your wireless security (if your router is secured).
> go to wireless tab and look for wireless security
> get your key
7. go back to playstation and try to view your wireless network
> connect and type in your key
