How to connect netgear fs108 to cable modem


leeb..... switches cannot be connected to the Cable modem.... because NAT will not be enabled in cable modem....so there wont be any DHCP server present in the cable modem....
Nat will be enabled only in DSL modem like AT&T verizon etc....So DHCP server will be present inside DSL modem...that is the reason why switches can be connected only to the DSL modem....
With NAT enabled modem, switch will work as a switch.... With NAT disabled modem, switch will work as a hub.... This is the difference....
Any doubts further ? please clarify with me.... I am ready to help you....

Hi I cannot connect a NETLINK 2wire modem to my linkeye g router. What do I need to set so I can get the modem and router to connect


The 2WIRE modem will have at least 3 ports:
* AC power,
* 4-pin telephone-cable, connecting to a telephone-jack in a wall-port,
* 8-pin Ethernet-cable, connecting to the 'WAN' port on the LINKSYS router.

Look at both ends of the Ethernet cable. It's necessary that the colour-arrangement of the 8-wires is _IDENTICAL_ at both ends, i.e., a "straight-through" cable, NOT a "cross-over" cable.

With another "straight-through" Ethernet-cable, connect one of the LAN ports on the router to the network-adapter port on your computer.

Turn on the 2WIRE modem. Wait for the lamps on it to settle down to a repeating pattern.

Turn on your computer. When Windows finishes booting, you should have a connection to the Internet.

DES-1008D connectivity issues.


Is the modem a DSL or cable model?
Does the router have one ethernet port and a WAN port?
Normally the broadband modem is connected to the WAN port on the router and the ethernet port on the router is then connected to the hub/switch and the computers are then connected to the hub/switch.
The modem gets an unique IP address from your Internet Service Provider and then the router then issues Class "C" IP addresses to each computer that is connected to the switch/hub.

I have an external modem for broadband connection. it connects only via usb i am not able to connect via the phone cable port. what seems to be wrong?


The broadband modem connects to thecomputer using the USB or nework port not the phone cable port.
The network port has 8 wire connectors and whilst they both look similar the network (10baseT) port is wider than the phone port.

You also need to configure or reconfigure the model to let it know which cable you are using to connect the modem to the computer.

Connect Linksys 8-Port Switch to two PC's, a modem and printer


What's the model number of it? Is it a router/switch? Or just a switch?

The modem would go into a WLAN port. Everything else would go into the numbered ports.

If you pass me the model number then I can provide more information.

You'll want to connect one computer or laptop to it first before setting it up so you can configure the correct settings. You'll need the admin password. If it's just a switch, then you can just plug in; however, I strongly advise putting a router in between a modem and switch. You want to have a firewall in place.

Cant connect to network


You want to add a <insert brand> router to... your PC's ethernet port? If so, you just need a straight-through ethernet cable with CAT5 connectors. One end into the LAN port of the router, and the other end into the ethernet port of your PC. Done!

Now... there is a modem as well? Usually you'd have the modem (DSL, cable, whatever) plugged into the router's WAN port. The router then can share it out to all the LAN ports (of which your PC will be one of) and to any wireless clients via it's radio antenna.

So that answers that question, but if you get that done and can't configure everything, ask another seperate question please!
