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.

My ps3 takes 40 seconds to show friends on list then another 40 toopen text message very frustrating please help me

Unfortunately this has more to do with your internet connection then your PS3 hardware. There are two things you can try with very little investment in time and money. First, make sure your connection is good. If your using a wireless signal, be sure your PS3 is getting plenty of signal. If not, try moving it closer to your wireless router. If your using a wired connection, make sure all wires are plugged in correctly and securely, both into the PS3 and the router.

If your using a wireless connection, try switching to a wired connection. This can improve online features by a significant amount. A good Ethernet cord ( the type used by a PS3 to connect to a router) can be picked up at a good price at your local electronics store, or at a larger hardware store like Home Depot or Lowes. Ask at the help desk and they can point you to the cords.

hi there,
what are you trying to connect by bluetooth? The ps3 bluetooth will only work with ps3 controller, remote control, keyboard etc... will not connect to other things like mobile phones. If what you are trying to connect is a ps3 device, make sure its turned on when doing the scan. Hope this helps

I want to just make it clear to you, that you can repair the following problems at home with a good repair guide. There is no technical knowledge needed you simply do what you see on the step by step videos or the paper guide.

The best thing is to get and keep your PS3 guide for life so if something goes wrong in the future you can just review your guide and fix it.

PS3 and thompson ST585v6

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.
