Question about Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router
Trying to figure out how to use a router with a cable modem to get internet with 2 computers and a xbox360
I assume you router came with a configuration manual or CD. Its very easy. Once by following the instructions, go into the router like:
http://192.168.x.x (whatever IP is suggested by the manufacturer) and make sure the internet connection type. Mostly the ISP's use 'Dynamic IP' (if you scroll other ones will be like PPPoE, PPTP etc). Select Dynamic IP and restart your router and you will see after few seconds that your router has started to offer IP's to the internal Lan Pool. connect your ethernet cables from the computers to the router (behind the router you will find the ports to connect them)
In your Network settings in the router assign an internal IP to the router like '192.168.x.x' subnet mask 255.255.255.0, enable DHCP server and assign the internal LAN ip pool like 192.168.x.20 to 192.168.x.100 and you are all set.
Security settings Always make sure your router (if in case its wireless router as well) assign and use an authentic security feature like 'WPA, PSK or WPA2, PSK' you could also use WEP (but WEP its getting old) I recommend WPA higly for wireless clients. If you have NONE wireless connections to offer than do not worry about it.
simply put the CD inside your system connect it with router and it will guide you through for configuring it.
I hope it helped
