SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425

First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

SOURCE: How can I install a wireless router to RCA cable

From the back of your modem, follow the ethernet cable to your PC (in). Mark or remember this location. Remove this cable from the PC and insert it into the INTERNET port on your router. Then take another ethernet cable (usually supplied) and insert one end into the ETHERNET port of the router, and the other end into your PC (where you originally removed it. Remember to check all connections and plug in the modem. You should now be good to go! If your PC has an installation Wizard, you can browse thru it as well.

SOURCE: what wireless is compatable with RCA DCM425

Any wireless router would be compatible with your RCA modem. Just make sure to connect the ethernet cable from your modem to the correct port on your router (usually the yellow port, maked "modem" or "internet") and that your RCA modem is online (4 green lights - press the internet on/off switch if otherwise)

This way you're making sure that your wireless router is correctly facilitating your internet service.

Hope this helps.

Can i hook up 2 computers to the rca dcm425 without a wireless router


RCA DCM425 digital cable modems only have one Ethernet cable located in the back of the device. In order to have two computers connected at the same time you will need to have router. The router will connect to the Ethernet port on the back of the RCA modem and then you can have up to 4 computers connected directly to the router using Ethernet cables. If any of your computers are wifi compatible they will also be able to get online by using the wifi from the router.

I have the RCA DCM425C cable modem and also Vonage phone service. So my modem ethernet connects to my Vonage internet. I would like to go wireless in my house. How would I do this?


You would connect from the output of the Vonage modem to the wireless router and then from the wireless router you can connect Ethernet to your desktop if you have one and then anything else can run off of the wireless.

or

get a wireless router / cable modem combo provided by companies such as netgear then you would connect the Vonage to the router through one of the available Ethernet ports and any other Ethernet connections to the router as well and anything else wireless would work wireless.
