So do you have internet service at the house? If so you can plug the ethernet cable from the modem directly into the computer's ethernet port.
If you're talking about directly connecting to your cell phone, then the phone has to have the built in router in it. If it does, you can connect your computer to it wirelessly.
If you're talking about a regular old house phone (land line) then you would be very slow if you could get it connected. I don't think the newer models of computers even have a modem port to connect a telephone line into it. But basically you would still need a internet service provider to connect it.
Bear in mind that there is a difference between the phone cord and the ethernet cord. The phone cord is smaller in size and the end that plugs in is smaller.
Unplug the power cord and the USB cable or Ethernet cable coming from the modem.
Wait two minutes and then plug the power cord back in which will reset the modem.
Take the straight through Ethernet cable and run it from the LAN port on the back of the PLAYSTATION®3 into the ethernet port on the modem (you may need to unplug the Ethernet cable already in there. Also, make sure a USB cord is not connected to the modem as this will cause your PLAYSTATION®3 not go online).
Turn on the PLAYSTATION®3 to log into the PLAYSTATION®Network (you may need to log in manually if your settings are not set to automatically login). When you are done with your online activity with the PLAYSTATION®3, turn off the PLAYSTATION®3 (refer to the Quick Reference manual) and then follow these directions:
Remove the Ethernet cord going from the ethernet port on the modem to the LAN port on the PLAYSTATION®3 out.
Reset your modem as you did before my unplugging the power cord for two minutes and then replug the Ethernet cable/USB cord coming from the PC to gain internet access onto your PC. (Please note that this step can be skipped if you do not want to have internet access on your PC at this particular time or do not have a PC at all.)
When you would like to log back onto the PLAYSTATION®Network please follow the steps beginning at the top.
The modem setup should appear like this:
From there, please follow these instructions (from SCEA):
Select "Network Settings" under "Settings" in the home menu, and then press the "X" button.
Select "Internet Connection Settings", and then press the "X" button. When a message stating that the Internet connection will be terminated is displayed, select "Yes", and then press the "X" button.
Select "Wired Connection", and then press the "X" button.
Select "Easy" or "Custom" and adjust settings as necessary. Follow the on-screen instructions to adjust the required settings.
Note: You should always choose Easy before going onto to adjusting the Custom settings. In most cases, the Easy settings will work and are set automatically so you won't have to search for information that could have been gathered automatically.
It depends on the router but how I did it is
1. Connect the ethernet cable to the router, then the cable that came with the router to the router with one end, then plug the other end into the computer.
2. There should be a disk that you have to install which is the firmware for the router. Once this is done, it will automatically update from now on.
3. It should set up itself!
You may need to reboot your cable modem before plugging in the router's power cord.
Are you certain that you re-plugged the Ethernet cable from the cable modem into the correct port on your Netgear router?
If plugging your computer directly into the cable modem allows you to go online, then just re-boot the router once all of the ethernet cables are plugged in to the correct places and then power it back on, and you should be okay.
Shut down your computer, unplug the cable modem and the switch. Connect all three - computer to switch, switch to modem. Make sure that the ethernet cable between the router and the modem is in the router uplink port and that the computer is plugged into one of the four ports that look alike. Wait 30 seconds - plug in the modem. Wait another 30 seconds, plug in the router, wait another 30 seconds and boot the computer.
Open a browser and see if you have internet access. If you still don't, then try to check the browser by typing 192.168.1.1 into the address bar of the browser. That should give you the browser sign in screen. The Linksys default is to leave the user name blank and type admin for the password. That should give you access to the router so you can check the settings.
If this doesn't work, document carefully what happens and post again with your results and we'll try to go from there.
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).
