There should be a quick connect chart that came with your router!
However a router normally has 5 ports, 4 together and one separate from the other 4 and sometimes has a different color.
Unplug power from your modem, then plug the port on the modem to the one by itself on the router.
The 4 ports that are together are where you plug in up to 4 devices "Computers, Printers, Network Drives"
Now plug the power back into your modem and wait until the modem syncs back up to your provider.

SOURCE: Belkin N1 Router connection drops when phone rings

You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).

Do a powercycle. Make sure to completely turn off the modem, router, after 30 seconds, turn on the modem first then the router.
If that will still not work, perhaps there is a need to update the software of your router.

SOURCE: Cannot connect Belkin F5D8233-4 Router to Mac Laptop

Hi, I had the same problem with my MBP and the best solution I found was:
Dissable the Wlan security and use Mac Address control only for the wireless. This will keep your network secure anyway and you can connect normally.

The only inconvenience is that when you want to connect other computers to your wireless you have to enter its MAC address on the list.

Remember to set the list as Allow.

Just hook it all up, and push and hold the reset button in the back of the router for 10 sec..

Then unplug your internet box, [cable/DSL box] and plug back in,
The internet box will send a IP to your router automaticly.

[If it dont work unplug power from both boxes, then back in but plug the internet box in first..]

done..

if your useing wireless this will not be setup with a password to join, and will be open to neighbors,,

If you want to go to the next step and setup a password to join, you can do this with out the cd also, but get it working first and hit me back

Connecting MacBook or NetGear Router to Comcast


As a Comcast tech I assure you there are no special protocols used on a standard residential installation. There should have been nothing the tech downloaded to your pc most especially an executable file. I would assume he or she was making sure you were able to get to the customer installation page before they left. However if you have a router that the ports are not functioning on you are most welcome to have one shipped to your home for replacement. The wifi key provided on the bottom of the router is case sensitive most generally all in caps. If you dont have a spare cat5/6 cord to see if thats the issue ask them to send one with the new modem. Comcast does not charge you a fee for a truck roll when its faulty eqt. of their own. I have installed hundreds of apple products including the ones you are referring to as well as netgear routers they all work with the gateway Comcast provides the customer. Now if you want there is a tiny factory reset pin button at the very top of the gateway in the back you will need a paper clip to push it in. Hold it in there about 10-15 seconds and the gateway will reboot and return its setting to factory spec. try that first before calling customer service.

How do i connect a netgear wireless router to comcast modem


Unplug your Comcast modem from your electrical outlet. Connect the Ethernet cord from the back of your Comcast modem into the Ethernet port labeled "Internet" on your new router. Connect an available Ethernet port from the back of the new router to the Ethernet port on the back of your computer.


Plug your cable modem into an electrical outlet. Plug your new router in an electrical outlet.


Reboot your computer. Click on "Start," then "Control panel." Click "Network and sharing." Select "Set up a new home network."

Click on the option for a router or cable modem when prompted by Windows to select your hardware. Your computer will attempt to access your new router. When the brand name for your router is listed, double-click it so your computer can configure itself to the new router.


Create a new name for your home network and create a unique password to prevent unauthorized users on your network. Your computer may reset your Comcast modem and router so your new changes can take effect.
