View Full Version : RCA (Thompson) HTTP access?
01-18-02, 04:21 PM
After 2 years, the Toshiiba provided from my ISP died of natural causes. It was replaced with an RCA, which works just fine. Now, the book says something about accessing the modem with a web browser, expalined and made possible on the CD that is included. That's fine, but I am on Linux, and I am NOT willing to boot windows for this silly purpose. Does anyone know the port where I can talk to the modem through the browser?
Welcome to speed guide!
usually it's like http://192.168.100.1 standard port 80, the manual dosn't have this info? what model do you have.

Oh, really? I thought all these things were on the VPN network, 10.something. I know my old Toshiba was, because one of the techs at AT&T gave me it's IP addy one time while on the phone with him. The book says to insert the CD and there will be a button "diagnostics" and that will launch the browser and also show the IP of the modem. I doubt that it would launch Mozilla, hehehehhe.
The model is a DCM235, according to a sticker on the side.
Thanks for your help, Ray

OK, thank you, that works, although there is really zero information there. But, it's cute, I guess. Say, does anyone know what the deal is with this:
Interesting ports on (192.168.100.1):
Port State Protocol Service
80 open tcp http
137 filtered tcp netbios-ns
138 filtered tcp netbios-dgm
139 filtered tcp netbios-ssn
Like, why would this thing be open on netbios?
Thanks, again, Ray.

It isn't open on netbios - that page is telling you that netbios is filtered (or blocked).

It will give you more useful information

Yeah, that's interesting, too. Thank you for that.
Now, what other pages does the thing have, like, maybe, where is it's setup options?

There are no setup options on any DOCSIS modem that are accessible to the end user. It is done by carefully-guarded files downloaded by the ISP.
