No, you cannot use both ports, you will need to use a router.

How do I get a RCA modem to run in Ubuntu Linux? The modem works in XP, just fine.


There are no drivers to operate the modem as a USB device. Using a crossover cable (one should have come with the modem), you should be able to connect to it via the Ethernet ports on your computer and the modem.

I lost the disk for the RCA DCM425 digital cable modem the cable company gave me. how can i get the modem to work on my new computer?


Hello Friend,
If you didn't change anything in modem side, that means the modem is still connected to internet. in this case you can connect the modem to your computer via the Ethernet cable. with this cable you will not need to install anything on your computer, just plug the Ethernet cable to the RJ45 port and start browsing internet.
The only case when you will need the drivers is when you want to connect the modem to your PC via USB cable.
Here is a link where you can find everything about your modem: quick guide, user manual, usb drivers ...
Best Regards,

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425


First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

Ethernet vs. usb


FYI for those people trying to use a ethernet and usb cable from a cable modem - it may work for a while but it won't work forever - your ISP will only allow one IP address out of the modem unless you pay for additional addresses (then you need a switch). Each device you have on the modem is fighting for that IP and eventually it will just quit working (if it works at all).

If you want more than one computer on your network (on the Internet or sharing printers/files, etc) then you need a router or a gateway (cable modem/router combo which I DON'T recommend).

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.

The ADSL, Ethernet, and USB ports are located at the back of a Linksys modem. These ports are where the phone cable and computer will be connected. The ADSL Line should be connected to the ADSL port and the computer either be connected to Ethernet or the USB port., If u r using a ethernet cable no need to run the setup cd just connect the ethernet cable and contact ur isp..
do not worry about ur sagem modem, let it be inside.. just connect ethernet cables alone..

Step 3:
Connect the USB to the USB port on the back of the modem and then connect the other end top the USB port of the computer.

Installing the USB Driver
Step 1:
Power on the computer.
Step 2:
When the Hardware Update Wizard window appears. Click Install the software automatically (Recommended).
NOTE: Windows XP has pre-installed drivers for the ADSL2MUE and will automatically install the USB driver for the modem.
Step 3:
Click Finish.
