most wireless routers are setup for cable modems out of the box all you need to do is run an Ethernet cable from your modem to your wireless router. you can then access your wireless router by the ip address and a pc hooked you directly to the router.
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.
The Cable modem must be disconnected from the computer. You cannot use USB and Ethernet at the same time.
1. Turn off power to the Cable Modem and the Netgear Router. Do the same with the computer. 2. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the router's WAN (Internet) port. 3. Connect another ethernet cable from one of the remaining 4 LAN ports on the router to the computer's ethernet port.
4. Now power on the Cable Modem ONLY. Wait for the modem to sync up with your service provider 5. After about 2-5 minutes power up the router and wait about 1-2 minutes. 6. Now power on your PC.
Check and see if you have internet access. If not you may have to uninstall any cable modem software related to USB connection. if this is the case, then you may have to repeat steps 4-6.
Since most cable internet providers do not use proprietary connection settings, your internet connection should be up and running without changing any settings in the router or modem.

Its simple 1. connect a lan cable from ur modem to ethernet switch(For ex: 4-port) 2. Take 2 cables from ur switch ports and connect it to ur Pc's 3. Configure DHCP on your modems. So that ur pc's obtain ip address automatically from ur modem.
This is how u connect multiple computers to internet by a single internet connection
Most modems that have both usb & ethernet connectors are either/or, not both. I recommend using the ethernet connection to your computer than the usb - the ethernet connection is faster & more reliable. It also frees up your usb port for other use. If you want both your computer & game console on the internet, then you need to buy a router which will allow you to share the modem.
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.
You can actually use your PS3 via direct connection through ethernet connection for internet access. Just make sure to go to the configuration screen of your PS3 for automatic connection and refer to manual or call Sony for additional tech support
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).
What you will need: Wireless router and a wireless adapter connected to your PC.
This is assuming you have a broadband internet connection.
Install the wireless router by taking the ethernet cable out of the back of your computer and placing it in the WAN or internet port in the back of your router. Install the wireless adapter inside your PC. Unplug your modem for a minute or so. Then plug in your modem and your router, then turn on your PC. If you are running XP, it should see a list of wireless access points you can access. Select the one for your router (should be the strongest) and hit connect. This will connect you to the wireless router and the internet.
Note this solution assumes the following: You have a high speed internet connection, your ISP's modem is connected to your computer via an ethernet cable, and you are running windows XP.
