No sound time warner cable

My problem is that the sound completely went out on my screen. The audio is working on my t.v. and I tried rebooting my dvr box. What could have caused my sound to go out on every channel?

I had a Scientific Atlanta box, 4240HDC installed two weeks ago. I am now on my third box. For no apparent reason the box reboots randomly a couple of times a day. Usually in the morning but yesterday it did it at 1pm (twice in a row). TWC has no idea why it is doing this. My old box worked fine but I wanted to be able to receive Caller ID on my TV so they told me I needed a new box. I have now asked for my old box back. Maybe it's something in the cable modem but I haven't noticed my computer restarting. Heck, I may just go back to basic cable and save some $$.

    caller id doesnt work now that i got a new box. Before i got the new box, my dvr recordings couldnt be accessed with the new and 'improved' cable guide. Now i can record on the dvr with the new box, but my caller id doesnt show up now. Ive been told to reboot which i have a couple of times, but that doesnt fix anything! It would be so nice if everything worked right at the same time with warner cable, but im finding this to be highly unlikely! Does any body have any suggestions? I sure could use them

    There is no audio on all the channels. I am with Time warner cable. The worst is that when we call customer care and all they do is reboot your box and if nothing works they fix an appointment with service team and always you have 3-4 days minimum waiting time.

    I have had the same problem! I had started working for DISH and I haven't had the problem since. The customer service is always a big help and I never have a problem going through the trouble shooting! I had to replace my receiver once and it was at my house two days later.

The configuration between the modem and your computer requires digital switching via code settings. Check you manual for the proper communication settings.

How to obtain public IP from Time Warner

<p>There are two basic types of IP addresses of internet service providers (ISPs) to provide customers with Internet services: a dynamic address or DHCP and a static IP address. A static IP, as the name implies, uses the exact same IP, and you're online all the time. The DHCP IP configuration uses a "stack" of available IP addresses each time a modem is online and an IP address of the network of the ISPs is simply grabs the first available IP address from the stack. The IP configuration of DHCP, then it is very easy for a new public IP address from your provider at any time <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Unplug the cable modem from Time Warner. Total count of 30 seconds and close. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Allow the modem to reboot every five minutes. During this time, goes through the boot cycle, contact your provider and ask for a dynamic IP address. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Navigate to the computer's IP Configuration Manager. For most versions of Windows, the easiest way to do this is to open the Start menu, click All Programs, then select "Command Prompt" from the "Accessories" menu (for future versions of Windows, you may need to the right button on the Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator "to show itself sufficient permissions on IP of the computer information). <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. IP address to test your computer by typing "ipconfig" and "Enter" Command to the numbers printed next to "IP address", like "IPv4 or IPv6 address." The number displayed on the public IP address of the DHCP as the modem from Time Warner will receive net. <br />

EnGenius ESR600H does not work with time warner cable

It might be a MAC address issue. See if you can clone the WAN MAC address from a router which works on your cable service.

You need to call Time Warner and tell them that you need to activate your modem. I had to do this when I switched modems for Comcast, so this should solve the problem.

Just had a new router put in by Time Warner Cable and they synced all our computers to a MAC address. We have 4 computers on this (2 desktops) and 2 laptops. Only one is having a problem, the Dell...

I would need a few more details to really get to the heart of this but the first thing I would do is connect this Dell to the router with an actual cable, if only temporarily. See if there are still issues when directly connected. Depending on answer to that you would know if the wireless is some how responsible or if there is some other cause. If there are no issues with a direct cable I would say it is the wireless card or signal. You could a try different wireless hardware on the dell or switch channels on the wifi router to see if that helps. I can't think of a reason why four computers on the same router would respond differently to a specific site.

Can this modem work on a gateway laptop?

No... wait...

Do youe a dial-up service? or do you have a cable network?
This modem is for a cable system, like Comcast or Time Warner.

If you need a dial-up modem like the one in your laptop, then obtain a USB modem from Best Buy, Fry's, Office MAX/Depot:
like a "Zoom" or "SupraMax" or "US Robotics" brand, 56K v.92 modem.

Not recognized by cable modem

Turn everything off for 2 minutes, cable modem, router and pc.

Turn on modem and wait 2 minutes for the modem to sync to TW.
Turn on router after 2 mins and wait until the router syncs with the modem.
Turn on PC
It sounds like your router lost its connection to the cable modem, which happens from time to time. TW will not help with your router. I worked for a cable co and the router and modem losing sync was the at least 70% of the calls. FYI cable doesn't use DSL,just the phone co.

Do I need to open ports?

There are no ports to open on the DCM425, as it's a cable modem, not a firewall. Earthlink/Time Warner will likely not be truthful when it comes to blocking ports on their end. Would it be possible to change the port that your PS2 is using?

Same goes for the bittorrent question, only I'd switch to uTorrent and different ports as well.
