The modem is required if you don't have one built into your pc. The router is optional for going wireless or adding another computer to your network.

Inconsistant wireless signal in house


Have you checked that the signal on your new cable modem/router is strong enough to reach your wireless devices? You may need to re-site the cable modem to get better coverage in your home. Your old one probably worked fine in the same position but that doesn't mean a new one will. There are a few things you can try to get the best of the range it has. Internal walls and furnishings all play a part in reducing the effective range of the router. Most routers will give you at least 50 metres indoors. Keep the router as high and as far away from walls as you can, this will greatly improve the range. Try to ensure the router is not screened by large near by metal objects such as steel PC cases, these will absorb wireless signals and reduce the range.

I have a dcm425 and when online gamming the router restarts itself every 10 minutes...


That's obviously a problem with your unnamed router, and not the dcm425.
Try looking for and flash upgrading (or downgrading) your router.
I had a Linksys router that I always kept up to date with the latest firmware, and one day it started doing the exact same thing we're talking about here. I had to downgrade the router to a previous version to fix the issue. Newer isn't always better!

How to connect my motorola surfboard sb5101 cable modem ot my ps3


Hi turn both modem and PS3 off. Then connect the ethernet cable from the modem to the PS3 and then turn the PS3 first. Then after the PS3 is completely on, then turn the modem on so the PS3 will get the modem's IP adress.
I recommend you get a router and connect it to the modem and the PS3 to the router. It's way better. I hope this helps.

Modem and router together not working. Did though.


Believe it or not the average router lives about 6-18 months before it start it downward spiral. Any router over 2 years old needs to be replaced or you will just keep messing with it until you finally go get the new router out of frustration.... OH, dont buy any "G" series routers. They will be antiques in a short time. "N" series is what you want. In addition make sure any new modem you buy is DOCSIS 3.0 or better. Walmart sell a couple of modems but they will not be compatible with the higher speeds coming soon. No, firmware cannot be updated to 3.0 as it is a hardware and software thing for 3.0. Be well

Siemens 4100 modem


You may have a bad power supply.
You would be better off picking up a small APC or UPS and have all your computer devices running thru.
It is common that after a power interruption the modem must reset to regain it lost signal

Where is the security code to connect to the wireless gateway 2wire?


Usually you can find the security key for the wireless on a 2wire modem/router underneath it there's should be a 10 digit key in there as the wireless security key, if you cannot find it there you need to access the router setup page and it will be better if you can contact 2wire support to walk you through in getting that key from the router page..

Wireless N is better because it is capable of faster speeds and transfer rates. It also will present better range.
