I have one of these modems and I had gotten it into the gateway mode, but it kept screwing up (after they flashed it). I finally called Comcast and they said it wasn't registered to my account, even though I could sort-of surf the internet. They did some update, sending back into CM mode and losing router functions. Otherwise it works OK. Have you had connection problems with it in the router/gateway mode or does it work OK?

The 6141 is not a "gateway". It is always in "bridge mode". However, some crazy engineer decided that the 6141 should have a default DHCP server -IFF- it was unable to completely sync with the cable modem server (i.e. the other end of the cable). I have not been able to figure out how to turn this "feature off". But once it was by-passed, the 6141 worked flawlessly.
*by-passed: somehow (god only knows) the numerous reboots of the 6141 finally synced with the cable provider so that DHCP to my router was finally a "real" IP address. (not 192.168 or 10.0.0.0)
hello i was wondering if anybody can help me out here,recently my att unverse dsl nvg510 modem redlight (wifi setup ) is flashing red and sometimes flashing green. my internet is running good, all the device that connects to wifi is good also. and also i unplug the power for few minutes and plug it back in and still that redlight keeps on flashing. nobody can answer my question. thank you
If you are thinking of bridge mode that a DSL modem can be set in, cable modems are by design set up like this. Cable modems are dumb that are only made to pass the public IP address given to whatever is behind it, therefore making it always in a bridge mode.
i had same problem trying to receive faxes until i changed phone connections.
according to a motorola manual (link below) this has something to do with being connected to a "proper analog phone line".
i had the phone line running from wall to a newer gateway (maybe 8 months) dec 07 to a maybe 2 year old compaq. kept getting that loop current error on the compaq when trying to receive a fax until i elimated the gateway connection and plugged the wall right into the compaq.
here's a link that might help: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/12655/ENG/Motorola.htm
see section 6, troubleshooting. hope this helps...
You could install Router Techs firmware on your modem www.routertech.org and it would give you the option to put the modem in full bridge mode. However I'm not sure the hardware on the modem fully supports it. You might have to use half bridge mode and let your router do the DHCP.
I had the same issue with my RCA DCW615R. First time my ISP Comcast flashed it back to the old version. This time I could not find anyone who new how to do that. I used to have the software and I have searched the net. Seems they provider RCA does not have it.
This time I called Comcast because I noticed that the 192.168.0.1 brought me to their software update. They supplied me with the user name and password. I was able to get into the firmware and change all the settings using the new firmware. I think the only reason they gave it to me is because my printer is a network printer and it would not work unless I could access the firmware.
The old 192.168.100.1 does not work anymore because that was Cable Modem mode or CM mode. The new address 192.168.0.1 does work but you will need the user name and password from your ISP, this is RG mode or residential gateway mode.
Liked the old firmware better but they both do the same thing. Seems the Gateway works better with the new update. Still I would like to find the old firmware not sure why RCA doesn’t have it.
