That is because most cabel internet providers only gives you one public IP. Please go to a Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples, Walmart, or Targer, and ask for a LinkSys Router. The router will do NAT (Network Address Translation) that will allow more than one PC share the single public IP. This will solve your problem and will cost an estimated $30.00. The router is simple to hook up, just plug the cabel from your modem into the Internet/WAN port on the router. And the two computers into any of the other ports. Be sure to unplug both cable modem and router then plug up the cable modem first, once the ready light is on, plug up the router.

How can I connect two ethernet cables to this modem?


If your Internet Cable Provider allows it,you will need :

1. Crossover-wired, or "null," category 5 Ethernet cable for the cable modem to be connected.
2. 10BaseT or 100BaseT Hub or Switch.
3. Straight through, or standard, category 5 Ethernet cable (one for each computer to be connected).

Be sure to check with your Internet Provider first.

I cannot connext my xbox360. internet light is not on on roiuter but i have an internet connection, how do i fix


The internet light indicates that a connection is made from the Internet port on the router to a device. This device should be a DSL modem or Cable modem.
The connections you plug the wires in a twisted pair Ethernet network into come in two flavors, DTE and DCE. There are 8 wires and two are used for transmission, two for reception with 4 unused.
The physical connections are the same on either end, so this is confusing. There are two types of cables, a "straight through cable" which can be used to connect DCE to DTE (a DTE is a computer or X-Box or something that is the end of the line, while a DCE is a Commuications device, like a hub. A modem or hub or cable adapter is a DCE. You plug your computer (DTE) into a modem (DCE) with a straight through cable. To plug a hub to a hub, you need either a crossover cable or a "X" port on the hub.
While many new devices are auto-sensing, the WGR614 is not, and they caution you that you may need a crossover cable, and to check the manual for the modem or cable device.
A manual for your router can be found at http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/wgr614v6_ref_man_20Apr05.pdf but I don't know what kind of DSL modem or cable adapter or whatever you have so I can't guess further. I found the explanation for "why is my internet light off" with the suggestion that you might be plugging DCE to DCE.
If you want to make your own crossover, it is not hard if you have the clamp for the RG-58 8 position connector.
Pins 1 and 2 are TD + and minus, and 3 and 6 are RD plus and minus. For a crossover cable, you need to swap 1 with 3 and 2 with 6. See http://www.kryslix.com/nsfaq/Q.4.html

How do you hook up a Dynex Ethernet Hub


If your hub has 4 or 5 connectors, connect one port to your router. This device will NOT work when connected to your cable modem, as the hub does not manage IP addresses like a router does. Hope this helps ... the remaining ports will feed internet, but not provide Internet addresses to a computer.

Only one computer can acces the internet in my hub , I have a Linksys NH1005 hub , I'm using cable dsl , but only one computer can acces the internet , it does not matter wich port


If you want to use more than one computers you will need to replace that hub with router. Best is to get wireless router because in most routers you have places for wired connections and also wireless connection.

Reason why you can't use more than one computer is simple because most ISP are allowing only one computer to be connected from DSL modem.

Hello Friend
You could definately use Network Switch-10/100 5-port model#EZXs55w to Connect to Network Router or Modem using Uplink Port at back Panel of 10/100 5-port model#EZXs55w Switch.
Simply Connect Modem cable to Uplink Port of Switch and connect computers to other 2 ports of switch. Allow computers to get Automatic ip addresses..if computers still not getting ip addresses auto--contact cable company and config your cable modem to use NAT or enable NAT--

How can i connect an additional pc to my rca dcm245 cable modem? i have an ethernet hub.


Hi there.
What you have to do is plug in the Ethernet hub, run the Ethernet cable (RJ45) from the modem to the "internet in" or "internet" socket on the hub, it will the one which is separated from the others.
Then connect an ethernet cable in port 1 to your first computer and a cable from port 2 to your second computer and so on.
If you experience connection problems just pull power from the modem for 30 seconds, plug it back in wait a minute and reconnect.
If you would need further assistance please post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

My two computers cannot pass through my broadband provider (through the switching hub) at the same time.


that is not possible for an single isp connection you can only connect one computer at a time and hub is basically a repeater that is it simply repeats the packets it receives from one input out the others.
