You might be trying to plug the ethernet cable into the modem. This is smaller than the ethernet connectionbut looks the same. If there is no ethernet connection on the computer you might need to have a NIC card install.

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.

If this does not resolve your issues, we can continue to work with you.

Hi,

The best way to check if the computer can access to Internet is to boot the computer to "Safemode with Netwroking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacture or do settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP or try reseeting the Internet Explorer.

Thanks and Regards,

How do you hook up xbox 360 to cricket a600 broadban


Yes, but if you want to connect the X-box and computer directly you may need to get a crossover cable. Sorry, I can't say for sure on this as it depends on the network card in the PC.

You should have a box in the configuration dialog for the Cricket saying something like "Allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection". Be sure this box is checked.

I don't know how to connect my router. please help


If you have DSL or cable internet, disconnect the ethernet cable going from the DSL or cable internet modem to the computer. Disconnect the end of that cable that plugs into the modem. Connect an ethernet cable from your cable or DSL modem to the router where it says something like "modem", "internet", or "in". If the router is a wired router, connect the ethernet cable that is still attached to the computer to any open ethernet port on the router.

Ethernet card


hi there. The ethernet card is an interface that allows your computer to be connected to a LAN (Local area network) and to a Cable/Dsl modem to be on the internet. The connector looks bigger than the one of a regular telephone jack (it's actually double). If you don't have the ethernet card you can't go on the internet or on a LAN.
From the back of the modem or router you should connect a cable to your ethernet card of yor computer. Only after you did that you can try to connect to the internet.
Let me know, or be more specific.
thanks
