Re: linksys wrt54gs v.6
You will have to change the
Linksys's LAN address to something other than it's standard
192.168.1.1, as this is the same LAN address the Arescom uses. Just
change it to something like 192.168.0.1 instead

modems are not routers. Routers can port forward. You need your WAN to face your ISP, and your LAN will need to face your router. Once you have your router talking to your ISP you can set it up to hand out interal network services, but I doubt SOHO routers will do port forwarding. Routers, however, can do port translation like passing gaming traffic over port 80 (web). You can do that in the security tab on your linksys.
If your modem is not communicating with your Linksys router, your Arris modem was most likely installed directly to a PC or Mac when either you or a technician installed it. As soon as it connected it registered your MAC address from your NIC. You need to make your sure that the modem is still talking to the PC or Mac. Please try the steps below.
1. Find out what your NIC's MAC is (go to "Start", "run", "CMD", "ipconfig/all")
2. Copy down your NIC's "Physical Address." That is the MAC.
3. Go into your router's web based utility (Linksys is 192.168.1.1, username:none ; pw: admin) and click on the "Advanced" tab.
4. Then click on the "MAC Address Clone" tab.
5. Type in the number that you copied down. Click "Apply."
6. Now power cycle your Modem while it is disconnected from your computer and router. Power Cycle the router. After everything has rebooted connect the router to the modem and you should be good to go!
In most cases, this should work, and you ought to have internet access now.
If this did not work, the following is a quick fix: 1. Go to the 'Applications & Gaming' tab 2. Click the sub-heading 'DMZ' 3. Click 'Enable'. 4. Click 'Save settings'. 5. Wait for the settings to save, and click 'Continue'.
If this doesn't work, I would recommend calling your cable ISP and telling them that you need a modem that will work with more than one computer, or you need them to send a tech out who is able to set up the internet through a router.
there is nothing issue with the linksys ist chk the ipaddress which u had provided to the modem and router is in same serious for eg: if ur modem is in 192.168.1.1 ten provide ur router ip as 192.168.0.1 and also chk whether the connection type is in PPPoE and also chk whether u r able to browse through modem which is provided by the ISP....
you may be suffering from mixed Cat 5 and Cat 6 cabling. The wiring is slightly different and they don't work well when mixed in routers and modems etc. One or the other will work , but when they're mixed it'll do what you have going on here...
I would recommend wiring everything with cat 6 ethernet cabling. Look on your cable and you will find the labeling on the outer casing.
This RCA DCM 425 is a cable modem only its not even a router, its just a plain cable modem that is being provided by some cable company like Cox and Comcast, try searching again for a different box there they have a brnad name of Linksys, Netgear or Dlink because those are the common manufacturer of wireless router ...
