It should be located on the top right hand side, on the SIDE of the computer. It looks just like a phone jack hook up. Hope this helps. Also, if you don't have one or can't find it you can always plug in an adapter to the telephone line and then you can plug the ethernet cord into that.

    I'm so sorry, I misread your question, I thought it was a laptop. But since it's a desktop the ethernet port is located on the very bottom of your computer tower. It should be right next to were you would plug in a phone line, they should be back to back. But as I said earlier, if not, get an adapter, it has two places to plug into. Hope this helps.

When the comp was built it had a v90 modem (small phone jack) and a ethernet card (larger phone-like jack). most dsl and broadband modems on the market today have a usb port on them that you can connect them from the modem to the comp. if the other two are missing. hope this helps.

Internet stopped working after lightning strike and new motherboard didn't help


Can you please describe in more detail how the internet doesn't work?
If you have the laptop and the desktop connected to the same router? If so, if you turn on Sharing, can you see the other machine? (or if you have a network attached printer, can you print to it?) If you can do other tasks with Ethernet, then it is not a computer hardware problem.
Does the cable modem have wireless and four Ethernet ports, or does it have just one Ethernet port? Do you have a separate router?

My sony pcv-rx580 wont connect with my cable modem


Did you plug the ethernet port that comes out out the cable modem into your computer's ethernet port? If so, has it ever connected? If it connected in the past, did you pay the bill? If you're getting no connection, then call the cable company and let them ping the line to see if there's a problem.

Hi I would like o hook up a netgear prosafe 8port gigabit switch to my pc and run an ethernet cable which is allready hardwired to my sony bluray player so I can enjoy netflix


It would be much easier to use a simpler device, namely any Netgear 10/100 wireless router.

Cable-modem (or DSL-modem) --> Router's WAN port

Router's LAN port #1 --> your desktop computer
Router's LAN port #2 --> your Sony player
Router's wireless adapter --> your iPod Touch's WiFi adapter

Since the cable-modem (or DSL-modem) is only delivering 5 to 25 Mbits/second to your router,
unless you are paying a _lot_ of money per month to your ISP,
there's no need to buy/use expensive "gigabit" equipment.

I want to connect my all-in-one with my desktop-computer and router.


1.Your Modem you have with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) has an Ethernet cable coming from it
2.Plug the Ethernet cable into the Internet port of the router.
3.Unless your desktop computer has wifi capabilities (Wireless) your will want to plug an Ethernet cable directly from your Ethernet port of your computer to one of the 4 ports of your router.
4.This will allow you to connect 8 devices wireless around your home with your desktop computer Tethered (Hardwired to your router)

Bigpond have sent me my 4 port Wi-Fi modem thompson TG782T Home Network Gateway, now I am sitting here trying to figure out just where everything goes!!! I received a cd rom however I can't get it to work,...


Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

Modem:AZTECH DSL605EW Hi i have no lights on my ethernet (1,2,3, &4) lights. What does this indicate?


It will be lit up if there's a Ethernet Cable Connected to either of the 4 ports. If you will be using a Hardwired connection to connect the Computer to the router you will see that the light on the port where the ethernet cable is connected will lit up. However if you will be using wireless connection then it wont lit up.


Thanks for using Fixya.

Connecting My Cable TV Modem To Wireless Router


yes you can. you simply plug the modem into the input port on the wireless router and then plug which ever device you want to hardwire into the back of the wireless router. that's all :)
