Question about RCA Cable Modem DCM315R (11603540)

2 Answers

Frequency change Our cable system has again moved frequencies around (I work for Comcast). I have about 1000 of the RCA modems that were out in the field six months ago, before we changed the frequencies. Now, we are trying to use these modems again. In some areas we have a 597 mhz and in others 567... there are also a few with a dual downstream (both 567 and 597). The problem I am having is, if there is a dual downstream, the modem will only go as far as 597, thinking that that is the DS it is supposed to lock on. Is there any way to manually tell the modem which frequency to lock on? If not, I am stuck with 1000 useless modems in inventory. The terayon modems have a specific web page where you can actually tell the modem which frequency to lock on... This is what I am looking for, Please Help!!!! I have done the manual resets (with the pen on the back of the modem), and the power cycles (pulling the power plug) to no avail...

I figured out that with the RCA modems, if you pull them off the network ( disconnect the cable) , do a system reset (push the button on the back) for 45 seconds it goes into (what I call night rider mode) with the lights. After it is done with that it will give a class C address to the PC plugged into it. You can plug the gateway address into a browser and get into a configuration mode. There may be a place to reset the freq. not sure though. Sometimes you have to do it a few times to get it into this mode... once you lock in a configuration change I have never been able to get back into it without doing an other reset. Give it a try.

If cox says it won't work on their system, there's nothing you can do to legally make that unit work. There may even be no physical way to make it work if it's simply using different frequencies or protocols than COX uses.
If you want cable internet from COX, you will have to call them and have them install it. Chances are they won't even charge you for the cable box, or it will be a very small monthly fee - and your internet usage will be on top of that.

You're paying monthly fees to COMCAST, correct?
So, telephone them, and get their "technical support" department to help you get it working.

Comcast is my service provider and I have had an RCA DCM 245R modem for almost 10 years. Until recently it has worked fine. On an ever increasing basis I am losing internet connection and when I look at...


Hi,

It can be an issue with the modem or with the line. When the line drops the link then the modem shows only two lights. And, when you power cycle the modem (unplug and replug it) it establish the session again with the comcast.

So, i'll suggest you to get the line checked first and if comcast finds that line is working fine then get the modem replaced.

When you are using a FullHD upscaling model. I still have to a HD setbox


the set top box is required by your cable company.

if you plug cable directly into the TV and run an auto program from the TV menu it will find most channels. BUT it will not locate them correctly.

for instance I have comcast. Channel 58 is FX but WITHOUT a cable box it shows up as the following on my HDtv's

sharp 52" shows up as channel 83.10
RCA 27" shows up as 86.6
RCA 32" shows up as 89.3


its a pain in the ****. We rent 2hd boxes from comcast at 7.99 a month and I refuse to pay them any more per month.

Contrary to what most cable providers say you WILL pick up most channels and in fact you will pick up some HD channels without the box but you have to look for them and they won't be on the same channel on every TV.

Lastly cable companies also remodulaet their signals every once and a while so there will come a time when you will have to do the whole setup, autoprogram (ch scan) again and yes the channels will once again move to another channel.

cable sucks Comcast REALLY sucks

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

Connecting ADSL wireless modem router to COMCAST


unfortunately you can't because the 2wire is a dsl modem it has to use the phone line to connect to the internet, it would be different if it was just a router but since it is a modem it needs that connection to the phone line in order to work

What it sounds like to me is that your router has been running for a while, and thus start to break down slowly. You coul try power cycling it.

power cycling:
1.) Only unplug the power cord from the modem only, for about one minute.
2.) After one minute has passed, plug the power cord back into the modem, give it a few seconds to boot up again, and it should work.

If the modem still does not work, then the problem might lie with the computer itself, very hard to see happen, but it could still happen.
If in then that case, you would have to system restore your computer to an earlier date. that it was working fine on.

You can have comcast allow you to log in using the new firmware at 192.168.0.1. You will need the user name and password from them. This will alow you into the firmware so you can change settings, including the PCMCIA card.
