The trick about all this is that the software does not configure the computer, but the modem. So once it has been configured through a computer then plugged to a router, any computer plugged to the said router will have access to the Internet.
The whole process of installing/configuring will happen if you replace the old modem and/or plug a new computer directly to the modem.
Contact your cable provider, you most likely have a signal issue related to poorly seated fittings, outdated or wrong bandwidth splitters, or low signal from outside feed. Quadshield rg6 is the best indoor residential application though. -Comcast tech
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.
There are no ports to open on the DCM425, as it's a cable modem, not a firewall. Earthlink/Time Warner will likely not be truthful when it comes to blocking ports on their end. Would it be possible to change the port that your PS2 is using?
Same goes for the bittorrent question, only I'd switch to uTorrent and different ports as well.
