Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have the ethernet cable plugged into my modem. The set up works ok until I have to activate the "link code" and because I had to plug the cable into the modem where the internet cable usually goes, I cannot get the link to go through. I do not have a router. Do you know if there is a port on the back of a Dell computer 3100/E310 where I can plug the ethernet cable in directly and not have to use the modem port? Is there anything you can suggest? Thanks.

    Perhaps I should get a simple "wired" router--can you suggest a compatible one just to use with the Roku box?

How to set up D-Link router


Remove the cable that is attached to the "Internet" port on the rear of your DSL or cable modem.
Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the modem and plug the other end of the cable into the "Internet" port on the rear of the D-Link router. Attach the power adapter to the port on the rear of the router and plug the adapter's cord into a outlet.
Remove the power cord from your modem and wait 10 seconds before plugging it back in. This will reinitialize your modem and force it to establish a connection to the D-Link router. Your router will immediately begin distributing a wireless network with the "D-Link" network name.
Connect your computer to one of Ethernet ports on the rear of the router and open a Web browser. Type "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar and press "Enter." Enter "admin" into the username field and type "admin" again into the password field. Click "OK" to open the wireless configuration page. Click "Wireless Security Setup Wizard" to create a wireless password for your router's network. Click "Apply" to save the changes to the router's settings.

Unplug the power cables from both your DSL modem and D-Link router.
Verify the Ethernet cable is plugged into both your DSL modem and the D-Link router.
Plug the DSL modem power cable back in and wait for the self-test to finish.
Plug the D-Link router power cable back in and wait for the self-test to finish.
Plug your laptop into the D-Link router using an Ethernet cable.
Can you access the D-Link configuration page now?

Check to see if your computer is getting an IP address from the D-Link router.
Here's how to do that, assuming you're using Windows.
Hold down the Windows key on your keyboard then press the letter R.
In the Run dialog box type 'cmd' (without the apostrophes).
Click OK.
In the command prompt window type 'ipconfig /all' (without the apostrophes).
Press Enter.
Look for the line that reads 'Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection'.
Verify that 'Dhcp Enabled' is set to 'Yes".
What is the IP address?thejustin.jpg

Ethernet cable 'splitter': Works on AT@T 'light' modem but not on cable modem. Are splitters speed sensitive


Splitters that work on telephone modems are not designed to work on cable modems. If you are trying to allow more than one computer to access the Internet, you need a broadband router.

You can find them on eBay and at stores for under $30. The primary difference between them is the number of "ports". A port is simply a place to plug in your PC. The more ports, the more PCs you can plug in.

Here's how you set a router up.

1. Plug a short Ethernet cable into the Ethernet "out" port on your cable modem.

2. Plug the other end into the "Uplink" or "WAN" port (will be labeled one or the other.

3. Plug an Ethernet cable into the LAN card on your PC and the other end into one of the open Ethernet ports on the router.

4. Reboot each PC.

You should be good to go!

Motorola Surfboard 4220 not working with my Netgear WGT624 router


Make sure that you have the ethernet cord from your modem plugged into the WAN/Internet port on your router. Then unplug the power cord from your cable modem and plug it right back in. After the modem fully comes back online, unplug the power cord on the wireless router and plug it back in. wait 30 - 60 sec and then try and connect.

Most cable companies only allow one active"CPE" at a time for internet access. All this means is when you change what is connected to the cable modem you must always reboot the cable modem to allow access.


Hope this helps. Let me know if it does not work.

Please rate.

Automatic installation failure


unless you were switching from DSL to cable Broadband, there usually wouldnt be much reason to rerun the software just because you got a new computer. when you ran the software the first time on the other computer, it was the router you were setting up, not the computer.
if the new computer is not getting internet when hooked to the router, try this.

1.turn off computer and unplug electricity from router and cable modem.

2. connect all ethernet cable to the right location. ethernet from modem to router goes in the non-numbered port, ethernet from your computer to router goes in numbered port.

3. plug in cable modem electricity first, wait for all its lights to come on like normal.(this part is important). the ethernet light on the modem (it might be labeled ethernet, link, pc link, or something similar) will not be lit, this is normal until you get to the next step

4. plug in the router electricity, give the router 2-3 minutes to get connected to the modem.

5. start up the computer, wait for everything to fully load and check internet again.


hope this helps.

Probably you used the wrong type of ethernet cable, a crossover one. Try another Ethernet cable but this time a straight one.

Ethernet cable port does not worked only the usb port worked


Have you tried changing the lan settings, or better still use the disc that came with modem and it will auto install modem and configure settings.
