Question about RCA Thomson Digital Cable Modem (DCM305R)

1 Answer

HELP! Hi, I'm trying to connect my PS3 up to my THOMPSON. When I scan my PS3 it picks up the signal from the THOMPSON alright. When I click on it, to setup everything, it asks me to enter my WEP code, which I thought I found, but possibly not. Than when it attempts to find my IP address it says it FAILED, very confusing :p . Can anyone help me, PLEASE?

Use another computer that is wired to the router.
log into the router and get the wep code.
to get to the router page to login.
open a command windows
start/run/ cmd
type : ipconfig
that gives you the default gateway address.
put this gateway number in your browser address window and login.

As long as the PS3 connects to the TV properly you can do this by creating or accessing a wireless network from the router, that your PS3 will receive the signal from and display on your TV. A gaming console will prompt you for a password to the wireless network you want to associate it with if you try to use any internet features on a game or interactive dvd. Sometimes this can be done on the consoles main menu screen before you attempt to connect through any media.
From a home computer you can view the options of your wireless network, in my case, a windows operating system - by click your start menu, opening control panel, and selecting network and sharing center. Here you can manage your networks and create homegroups or networks.
If there is a password on your router that you can't remember, I have had success in retrieving the number to customer service for the brand of my router - by calling my internet service provider. In your case you would want to contact Vontage if you don't have the password.
Hope this helps.

My Tata Photon Plus USB Modem is not being detected in my laptop. Previously it used to work (for almost 3 months). But now all of a sudden,it is not being detected no matter what. It works on my other...

I just solved the same problem on my laptop with the help of Tata's tech support -
first, plug in the Photon plus modem, remove any other usb devices (mouse, etc)
right click on My Computer, select "manage". Click on Device Manager, expand the list of Serial Bus Conductors.
Right click on each "USB Composite hub" (not root hub) and uninstall.
after all composite hubs are uninstalled, go to the "computer" section at the top of the list in the Computer Management box. Right-click on "Computer" and click on "scan for hardware changes". Yiur system will reinstall the drivers and give you a notification at the bottom right corner of your monitor. Once u get the message "drivers successfully installed", open the Photon plus dialler and connect. It worked for me, hope it works for you too!

So the WLAN is red, it means that there's no wireless connection from your router.

I might advise you to reconfigure the RCA on the wireless settings.

for the PS 3 there are port that you can gather with your PS 3 manufacturer to open on the router, it might help the PS 3 to go online simultaneously.

Mac and Thompson router

I've run into cable modems that don't like to use ethernet sometimes. In cases like this, I have to do a soft reset of the modem and things usually work again.

To do a soft reset, do the following:
  1. pull the power cord from the modem
  2. count to 5
  3. hold down the power button on the modem
  4. plug back in the power
  5. count to 30 while holding the power button (the modem should be blinking a lot)
  6. release the power button and see what happens.
