Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer registered with the ISP.
To set up a Linksys router with Cable connection, you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting the Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection

Verifying Internet Connection
Connect the computer to the Broadband modem using an Ethernet cable without the router installed. If you cannot get online, contact your ISP. If it's online, use the computer to set up the router.
NOTE: Some cable modems use the USB port. If the physical connection is via USB port, you may not be able to go online via Ethernet connection. Contact your ISP to have the Ethernet port of the modem configured.

Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.

Hi, you can hook the router to your computer using a standard Ethernet cable (the one with connectors that look similar to phone jack connectors, but a little wider). You should have an Ethernet port on the back of your computer, and you can connect the cable from there to the Ethernet LAN port on the router.

Same principle. Plug one end of the ethernet cable from your modem's ethernet port, then the other end goes to the port on your Linksys router with the yellow "Internet" sticker. The other ports are numberd 1-4. You may connect your computer directly from there.

How do i reconnect linksys


Oh man your going to have to help me out a little on this one. Do you mean you had to unhook it and connect directly to the modem and now you want to hook the router back up? If thats the case Unplug all the devices (Pc's modem and router) connect an Ethernet cable from the ethernet port on the back of the modem (not the linksys) to the internet ethernet port on the linksys (usually set a little apart from the rest) then connect all the computers to the routers ethernet ports (usually labeled 1-4) then turn on power to the devices starting with the modem, wait for it to completely boot up all the lights like they're supossed to look. Then turn on the router and wait for that to finish booting up then all of the computers. If you have wireless devices that will take a little more help.
