Color of the wries doesn't matter. It's just a color of the wire.

The wire connection should be,

DSL/Cabel to modem, modem to router, router to PC/Laptop.

Changed from DSL, to cable no router connection


1. You need to make sure that you have a "straight through" cable and not a "crossover".
2. the yellow cable that your cable company provided is the cable that goes from the rj45 wall connector to the "WLAN" connector in the back of the router.
If you go to router manufacturers site you will find the instruction how to to connect your router to the cable modem.
3. check also the firmware updates for your router at this site and download.
4.Use your setup disk and follow the instruction set for cable also. This should walk you through the proper setup .
YOu didn't provide the model number of your router, I would have given you the setup site for your particular router.
You can go to D-Link's site and download the PDF instruction also.

LinkSys router early deaths


Your cable modem has a ip address of 192.168.1.1 and your router probably has the same ip address. Hook your computer up to the router and change the ip address to 192.168.9.1. On your router change the router mode to static ip address mode. Then you will need to know your username and password from you cable company, and the Domain Number. Then connect the cable back to the wan port from the modem and the other end to the wan port of the router. Connect the computer to the first lan port on the router and type 192.168.9.1 go to the status page and tell it to connect.

Your cable company is giving you one ip addres and have to pay for another for more than one computer. What are you doing is using the router to receive the first ip address and distrubting out to the other computers.

The back of the tower and of Linksyd


The single slot is where you connect your cable modem by use of ethernet (cat-5/6 cable). the other 4 act like a switch (basically plug your computer into those IF the router isn't a wireless router. IF it is, only use the single and only for the line coming from your cable modem.

Blue cable goes from modem to router port next to power connection. Yellow cable is just if your going wired. It would be used to go from one of your router ports to your pc if your pc was close enoug. Don't forget to rate please if this helps.
