It doesn't matter what color it is as long as its a crossover cable. You can get one at any computer store or bigger dept. stores like best buy, circuit city, etc.

I need networking cables, which cables are best for use.


CAT6 cables & jacks are better than CAT5E.
CAT5E cables & jacks are better than CAT5.
CAT5 cables & jacks are better than CAT3.
CAT3 cables have problems going faster than 10Mbit/second.
CAT5 cables support 100Mbit/second, and seem to work with 1000Mbit/second ("gigabit") devices.

Can I set this up this wireless router if I have cable internet and not DSL?


You CAN do this if you have access to the firmware of the ADSL gateway.

Connect cat5 cable from ethernet port on cable modem to ethernet port 1 on ADSL Gateway. (Must be port 1)
-Connect cat5 cable from computer NIC to other port on ADSL Gateway.
-(You may need to) Start->Run->cmd
ipconfig -release all
ipconfig -renew
Here's the trick...
-Open web browser, go to ADSL Gateway homepage (likely 192.168.0.1)
-Configuration tab, Advanced WAN->WAN
-Change WAN PORT drop down from DSL ATM PORT to ETHERNET PORT 1
-Click Edit button. Change Protocol from PPPoE to ROUTED.
-Radio button for DHCP Client to Enable.
-Click Set button.
-(You may need to) Power cycle both Cable Modem and ADSL Gateway device

Now this was done on a Westell ADSL gateway from verizon, yours may differ and you may need to look up the instructions for your specific gateway.

Wanna connect mulitple computers to my Printer


Hi,
Yes, you can definitely share one printer to multiple computers. All you need to have is a ethernet hub or some call it network hub and Cat5 cable. Ethernet Hub is a simple, small and inexpensive gadget to connect multiple computers together.For the Cat5 cable is popularly known as LAN cable. For you to share your printer, connect it on a ethernet hub as well as your computers using a Cat5 cable. Once everything is connected to the Ethernet hub fix the network and that's it. Everyone that is on the network can use the printer.
I hope I answered your question.
Thanks a lot!

I need to know where to plug the big yellow phone cord. One end goes in the top plug in the back of the router and where does the other end go? In the back of the motorola motem? What else is supposed to...


Hello,
The cord you are referring to is a CAT5 network cable. The color isn't important, but they usually ship the routers with color cords to help with the installation. Typically you would have the following setup:

1. A CAT5 network cable that runs from your broadband modem TO your Belkin Wireless Router in the "Internet" port. (Port "a" in the diagram)
2. Now plug another CAT5 network cable in to the back of your computer's Network Interface Cord TO one of the remaining ports on your Belkin Wireless (Any of the port "b" in the diagram).

However, you will need to run the configuration software that come with your router.

Please let me know if I can further assist you.

Regards,
KYTechnology

Cable has changed it's policy and standards many times in the past

if you have a cable modem you will most certanly need to decide
if you're going to be using the cat5 ethernet connection or the USB connection cable

if you have an onboard ethernet adaptor or a PCI ethernet adaptor
it's best if you use the cat5 connection of the cable modem

if you have no ethernet adaptor , you will need to use the USB connection of the cable modem
and connect that to your computer , which will most deffinately require that you have working
USB ports and at least service pack 2 loaded to enable USB 2.0 , and a driver from the cable
modems driver CD

if you're using a router , use the cat5 connection of the cable modem

( make sure you contact your ISP to walk you through the setup proceedures )

We're using an Acer 40x max tower, and using a cat5 cable for the internet. The problem is that we can't find the cat5 port on the tower.


Cat5 or ethernet port is a oversized phone jack to put it simply. You may need to purchase this PCI ethernet card and install it of you do not see it installed.
Hope this helped!

Blue cable.


The blue cable is a regular ethernet cable. There is nothing special about it other than the color. Cat5 is what your looking for.

Cat 5 wiring issue


I know this is an old thread, but for the sake of helping someone else in the future, I just got off the phone with the Phillips Help Desk and this is the way they told me to wire it up the RJ-11 & RJ-45 combo jack I bought (PH60037):
  • RJ-45
  • Jack colors - CAT 5e
  • Blue - white/orange
  • Orange - Orange
  • Black - white/green
  • Red - Blue
  • Green - white/blue
  • Yellow - Green
  • Brown - white/brown
  • White - brown


  • RJ-11
  • White - white/green
  • Black - white/orange
  • Red - blue
  • Green - blue/white
  • Yellow - orange
  • Blue - green
He said it was the standard configuration used by the phone companies for some time.
Phillips Help Desk # for phones/PCs (800-233-8412)
Hope that helps someone else down the road.
