Hello,
Ethernet cables can come in all colours (very unhelpfully). The cable you need has RJ45 connectors at either end, which are clear.

It goes by many names: you are looking for Cat5e or Cat6, ‘straight’ or ‘patch’ cable, which is used to connect, say, a computer to a router. Do NOT use ‘crossover’ cable.

Netgear has some info here (a little out of date but OK:)

    ..in other words, you don't have to use the original Netgear cable, but ensure you buy the correct replacement cable...:)

Contact your Internet Service Provider (DSL or cable) and let them know you're hooking up a router to your modem. They may have disabled the router feature in the modem and will need to identify it on their system for it to work correctly - they should walk you through the process (it's free). The thinner yellow cable you mentioned - is it a USB cable? Sorry, I've never heard of such a cable unless it's USB, Ethernet (the thick cable), or a phone line cable - the cables used for a network.

Take the ethernet cable which is going from your Warner cable modem to your computer, and run it from your cable modem to the input connection of your router. Then take a second ethernet cable and run it from the router (ports 1, 2,3 or 4) to your computer. Log into your router's setup page (see your instruction manual), and set up all the passwords and wireless settings. Please read the instructions for specifics of your particular router.

to set upa network

http://lifehacker.com/software/wifi/geek-to-live-set-up-a-home-wireless-network-162754.php

there is no "earthnet" connection. it is an ethernet connection. it looks like a phone cable but has larger ends than a phone connector. the router is connected to the computer via an ethernet cable if it needs to be hardwired to a ethernet port or internal ethernet card. a wireless connection only needs to be an add-on internal card w/antenna or a usb connector hub (it looks like a usb flash memory stick)

here is how it's done. netgear has the same type setup.

My net gear router is not connecting


Hello!

If the yellow cable is already connected from the modem to the router, the blue cable (must be an ethernet cat 5 cable) must be connected from one of the regular LAN port of the router to the back of your computer. Ethernet card should be installed on your pc so you can connect the blue cable.

if you are still having trouble configuring your device, call supportrix and use supportcall as your promo code for 1 free technical support.
