IF your modem has a USB and ethernet connectivity , yes it will work you just need to install the software for your modem so you can use it via USB connection , the software should come with your modem just run that software and follow the setup wizard and that should be it....

Hope that helps............

Can I disable wireless and connect with ethernet cord and modem, for work do not want remove wireless cord, in the day want to be able to use my wireless.


Are you talking about direct-connecting via Ethernet to a cable or DSL modem? You shouldn't have to disable wireless to do that. If the cable modem has an open Ethernet port, you should be able to run a straight-thru Ethernet Cat-5 cable between that port and the Ethernet port on your laptop. The laptop should recognize that it is connected to the modem through the direct connection. Check the manual for the cable modem or information supplied by your ISP for connection details. You may have to do some setup on the modem to get an Internet connection, like having your ISP 'activate' the modem. Just be sure your Ethernet cable is a straight-thru, standard Ethernet cable, and not a 'cross-over' cable such as is used to transfer data between two computers.

We re booted the computer and have to use a usb


Not sure what the problem is, but from what i am reading i am suprised that anything worked at all. A modem jack in your computer is for telephone lines, and the cable modem needs a cat 5 network cable as well as a ethernet card attatched to your computer. ethernet card in your computer cat5 cable runs from the card to the cable modem. Magic jack requires a usb connection as well as a broadband connection to work.

Ethernet port not working. can i connect from my dsl by using a usb cable instead.


Yes, if your dsl modem is equipped with a usb option, you can hook it up to your computer but remember to remove the ethernet cord 1st. Both ethernet and usb cannot be connected at the same time. Once connected, your machine may search for a driver to install the modem via the usb port but it should work, especially if it's a westell. Best of luck.

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

About ethernet


If you computer has already a ethernet card installed on it, just need to get a ethernet cable and connect it to your modem and the other to the computer and make sure the USB is disconnected already, then power off your modem and restart the computer then power the modem back on and check if internet is already working, if its not working you may need to contact your ISP and tell them to enable the ethernet connection of your modem....

Modem usb connection


You can only use the USB connection or the ethernet connection to get it work.  It won't work on both.

Ethernet vs. usb


FYI for those people trying to use a ethernet and usb cable from a cable modem - it may work for a while but it won't work forever - your ISP will only allow one IP address out of the modem unless you pay for additional addresses (then you need a switch). Each device you have on the modem is fighting for that IP and eventually it will just quit working (if it works at all).

If you want more than one computer on your network (on the Internet or sharing printers/files, etc) then you need a router or a gateway (cable modem/router combo which I DON'T recommend).

Printer and Modem


are you using a USB cable to connect your modem ? Are you using a USB cable to connect your printer ? If you are using a USB cable to connect your modem, try using an ethernet cable and your LAN card instead. It will work better and you won't need modem drivers to make it work. You do however have to have a LAN card or built-in LAN adapter. As long as you have one of those 2, the best way to hook up your modem would be by using the ethernet jack on the modem straight into your LAN card/adapter. If you are not using USB to connect your modem then please send me your printer model and how it's hooked up and I will help you figure it out. Hope this helps.
