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!!

How can I install a wireless router to RCA cable modem DCM425 installed by Time Warner?


From the back of your modem, follow the ethernet cable to your PC (in). Mark or remember this location. Remove this cable from the PC and insert it into the INTERNET port on your router. Then take another ethernet cable (usually supplied) and insert one end into the ETHERNET port of the router, and the other end into your PC (where you originally removed it. Remember to check all connections and plug in the modem. You should now be good to go! If your PC has an installation Wizard, you can browse thru it as well.

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.

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.

How do i get internet on a ps3?..


You have to connect the ethernet cable coming from your modem to a hub on the 1st clips space.
Then the 2nd one don't use it, the 3rd one will be for the cable coming between the hub and the PC. Hub is a (Network Hub Switch) that you can buy it from any hardware shop.
Then the 4th one is the one you connect between the hub and the PS3.
You have to give a local IP for your PC and PS3 using the configuration of your modem, or by enabling the DHCP to let the IP getting released automatically.
It will work 100% in case you follow the procedures properly

Trouble connecting netgear wireless router to rca modem DCM425


First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
Good Luck

IT KEEPS TELLING ME THERE IS NO ETHERNET CABLE ATTACHED


be sure that the cable used to connect your device to the hub is a true crossover cable. if you are using the cable that was shipped with the device, you may need to check your hub / router settings to be sure that DHCP is active, or set a hard IP for the device.

Ethernet vs. usb


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).

Connection problem between modem router and hub


Sounds like you may need what is called a "Crossover Cable' connecting your router to your hub, or if either device has an uplink port, use it on one device to connect to normal port on other device. Here are instructions for making your own cables: http://www.lanshack.com/make-cat5E.aspx
