I'm using an SB5101 and trying to use a new wireless router with this modem, but the set up is saying I have a static IP address... where can I find that on my computer whil I'm using my old router? thanks


I have one, after finding out how reliable and well-made they are. However, they can be picky during setup, especially since they have a rare 'config IP' address (the number you type into your internet browser's address bar to change the modem's settings). Click here >> 192.168.100.1
See this link for more info.

RCA DCM425 modem ethernet connection won't work


The setting for the Computer 1, use the network connection wizard to automatically configure the modem to work as a server station. Next, set the IP number manually and the DNS at automatic or is given by your ISP. Now the Computer 2 (workstation) should be connected to a Hub/Switch. The same, go to network connection wizard and select the appropriate connection setting, there are view samples for the connection types so explore them. After the setup, try loading your internet browser.... When done, it should work fine. Keep me posted for any problems.

Need ip address subnet mask number gateway number and dns server number


If the ip address you need is the Internet IP address, this is assigned by you service provider.
If you need an internal ip address, have a look in the modems configuration window.
This window is accessed using internet explorer and typing in the local address of the modem, usually this is 192.168.1.1 so enter this number. If this does not work, go to the modem manufacturers website and in the support section should be the manual (if you dont have one) and in the manual will be the ip address to access the modems configuration pages.
You must undertake these steps with your PC connected to the modem using a network cable, this will not work if you try this using a wireless link.
Usually, the admin and password details are admin admin. So type admin in the name section and admin in the password section.
Once you access the configuration area, navigate to the DHCP area and turn DHCP on.
DHCP stand for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. This simply gives an internal ip address to all the machines connected to the network.
Once this is done, save and reboot the modem and your PC.
Next,click on start and then run and enter CMD into the run dialog box.
When the text window opens, type in : ipconfig /all
dont forget the space between ipconfig and the / symbol
This will give you a list, in this list is the gateway ip address etc.
Usually, the DNS address is assigned automatically by your service provider but if not, you may have to contact them to get this number.
If you are trying to connect a second PC to the modem, all these details will be entered for you as long as you have "Obtain ip addresses automatically" ticked in the properties window of network connections. This is under the network connections applet in control panel. make sure everything is set to automatic.

My modem and my ip


You need to configure the modem for it to allow game hosting. Enable NAT/GAMING setting of your modem. You can do so by pulling its interface and configure the settings from there. The interface of the modem can be pulled up by typing the default gateway of the modem in the address bar of a browser.

Hope that helps. Enjoy your game sessions!

Forwarding from seimens 5830 how to get access


Hi,
You havent suggested what site you are wanting to forward one of your routers ports too, most people make this request for torrent download and/or gaming experience/improvement. Either way you need to know what port the software you are wanting to open a port for is currently using so you can tell your router which port to allow unchecked access.

I use this very informative support website for port resource info, click this link and choose your router type, in your case select Speedstream-5450 which will be the same setup as the 5830

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

That should take you to this page

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Siemens/Speedstream-5450/Speedstream-5450index.htm

Then select the software you are wanting to open the port for.IE: Utorrent or world of warcraft Etc... That will then open a detailed walkthrough on setting up rules for your routers port activity. You will need to follow the guide for each port you open, if the guide is not listed for the exact software you are using just read through the one supplied for Utorrent and change the port numbers to the ones you are using.
The software you are using should show you what port is in use at the time you are using it, some software may use a different port everytime you open the software or allow you to allocate a port permanently (which is not recommended safe internet practice especially if your ISP supplies your connection via a STATIC IP address, most use a DHCP allocated IP address)
Failing that you can find the port currently in use information using the command prompt- for winXP and Vista type c:/netstat-b for win2000 type c:/netstat-p Look for the software you are using it will be on the left hand side and look something like [Utorrent.exe] follow the line of info too the right and look for the 4-5 digit port number.

Wheeeew, Good Luck :0)

Bridge RCA Thomson DCM315R


Hi,

Usually cable providers provide public ip directly to your company ( already bridged ). so no need to configure your modem to bridge.
- Connect the computer directly to the modem and if possible, let me know the ip address of your PC, So we can find the modem already bridged.
- If its already bridged, then Open the ports on your Router ( port number : 3389 for TCP ) or else you may try DMZ Host on your router to check whether it works.

Note:
DMZ ( Demilitarize Zone ) host which opens all ports on your network and shows ur computer to the outside Network which is not really secured one. but you can try it for testing purpose whether it let you to use remote desktop.


Hope this will help you
