If you do not have ethernet port into your computer then purchase the ethernet card of 10/100 mbps and just fix it into the P.C.I slot of your computer, If you are using the operating system Win xp then it will probably automaticaly install the software(firmware) for your ethernet card, and perchance if the software is not installed automatically when the P.C is turned on then you may install the firmware provided with the Ethernet card.

I found my computer cable modem. the tip is green on the cable out. Is this the modem cable the right cable?


not all modem setup are all the same. However, you should see an Ethernet port, a power cord port, and a phone cable port at the back of the modem.

You connect the modem to the computer using the ethernet port (biggest port), then connect the modem to the phone line via the phone line port and power cord to power.

Hope that works,
Regards.

First,power down your computer and disconect the power cable to the cable modem.

Install Ethernet cable from the WAN/Internet port to the Cable modem's WAN port.
then install an Ethernet cable from port 1 to your computer. you can use ports1,2,3,4 for different computers.

Then power up the cable modem, then your computer. You should be able to get on the net.

I have a belkin router i am having trouble connecting it. i dont know where to connect the ethernet cable. Does it go the computer or the modem?


the ethernet cable should be connected to the ethernet port of the router to the ethernet/network port of the computer. you will also need to connect a cable through the router and the modem, then a phone cable from the modem to the phone line.

Ethernet port not working. can i connect from my dsl by using a usb cable instead.


Yes, if your dsl modem is equipped with a usb option, you can hook it up to your computer but remember to remove the ethernet cord 1st. Both ethernet and usb cannot be connected at the same time. Once connected, your machine may search for a driver to install the modem via the usb port but it should work, especially if it's a westell. Best of luck.
