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).

I need to know where to plug the big yellow phone - kytechnology_6.jpg

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

There should be at minimum 3 "cords".
By, big yellow cord I assume this is your ISP provided RJ45.
1 - Power adapter, router to power outlet 2 - "Yellow Phone Cord" will go to from the modem your router's "WAN" port. 3 - Another cord which is the same size as this "yellow" one, most likely blue or grey will go to your computer or other devices (this will be coming from one of the numbered ports)

The ethernet cable should go in the back of the modem and in the back of the router; the router should have 5 ethernet inputs. 4 of them will be grouped together. Plug into the one that is by itself, or is labeled internet. There should only be one ethernet plug for the modem.

If you do not want wireless for up to four computers, you can plug an ethernet cable into the computer and one of the 4 router ethernet plugs.

Hook up to the Wii


Alright so first of all, you should have gotten a cord with a big, grey power brick attached to it. Plug the end in that goes in a outlet, and the other end should hook up to one of the outlets on your Wii console. Then, there should be a cord with three branches. They should be colored red, orange/yellow, and white. On the back/front or on the cable box for your TV there should be plug-ins that are colored either red, white, green, blue, or orange/yellow. The specifications should be written under the outlets (visual, audio, etc...). Plug the white and red part of the cord in to the "audio" outlet (on your tv). The other cord (yellow/orange) should plug in to the outlet that is labeled "video" or "visual" or "screen" or something along the lines of that. The next step is pretty simple. Your Wii (should have) came with a sensor bar. It is thin, long, and black and has a very long, very thin cord attached to it. Plug one side of the cord into your Wii console, and the actual sensor bar goes on top of your TV. There are small, sticky rectangles that help with the sensor bar sticking to your TV. After you've done all that, your Wii is ready to go! Just push the power button and your ready to start playing!

It's sounds like you're getting your cords mixed up. The modem (the box from your company that provides internet) needs it's power cord plugged in, a phone cord or a cable cord plugged in, and an ethernet (LAN) cord plugged into it. The power cord will plug into the wall obviously, the phone cord or cable cord will be coming out of the wall obviously, but the Ethernet (LAN) cord will plug into your computer or a router. A router in your case. So the Ethernet cord from your modem (box that came from you company that provides internet) will plug into the router in the specific slot that says Internet or Modem connection. Now you need another Ethernet cord to go from your router to your computer. Try to plug the cord that goes from the router to the computer into the 4 different ports on the router until one of them works, you'll have to give it about a min to check each one. If that doesn't fix it then you need to make sure your LAN card is being read correctly and installed correctly, best way to do this is to go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager and look at Network Adapters. If there is a Red X next to a conenction, right+click the conenction and tell it to enable, or update drivers.

I have movedand don't know how to put my computer back togeather? Any help


Hi,

The blue cord goes from you monitor to the big blue plug on the back of your PC.
The keyboard is either plugged into a USB or the purple round plug on the back of the PC.
The mouse is plugged into a USB or the Green plug on the back and then you just need the black power cord which plugs into the big plug at the top on the back of the PC.

Hope this helped.

Thanks

Jason

I MOVED FROM GA TO AZ AND HAD MY COMPAQ SHIPPED ALONG WITH A LOT OF CABLES, ETC. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO PUT THIS TOGETHER TO GET ONLINE. PRETEND I'M FIVE YEARS OLD AND YOU'RE HELPING ME I HAVE A MONITOR,...


It can be intimidating when looking at a huge mass of wires and stuff, but not to worry, it may be a little time consuming, but is is all logical.
First set the monitor on the desk and plug it in to the wall. then take the second cable that has a million little prongs sticking out of the retangular plug and hang it to where the Case is going to sit. Put the case where you want it close to or on the desk. look at the back of the case, the cable that is coming from the monitor can only fit 1 socket in the back of the pc.
Now, 10% done!!! that wasn't hard!
Now put the mouse and keyboard on the desk and thread the cords through the back of the desk to the pc. Usually, the pc has two sockets right next to each other right on the top of the case in back, that are round and the size of a dime. That is where the keyboard and mouse plug in. Look at the back of the pc for color coding of plug color to socket color or look for pictures of which cable goes in which socket.
Ok, now find the big thick black cable that plugs into the wall and ends in a big thick square. Plug it into the power supply of the pc. It only fits one place.
Plug it into the wall now.
Now all you should have is speakers and a printer.
Look at the speakers, Depending if they are standard, or 5.1 dolby surround, they either have 1 or 3 plugs that go into the pc. Plug the speakers into the wall, then look at the back of the pc for 3 small holes. one should be labled, speakers. There is line in and microphone as well. plug in the speakers...... ,
Ok, printer, funky thick plug, or usb cable..... Either one, look at the back of the pc, it only goes in one spot!!
TADA

Now, you need to plug in the internet stuff. plug the router to the walll, connect to phone line or cable, then plug in the cable that looks like a big (usually yellow) phone cable. Plug it into the network card plug on the back of the pc.

Surf, have fun.
PLEASE VOTE 4 THUMBS FOR ME!!!!!!
Good luck and have fun.

Laptop wireless hook up


I just got your messages, looking at the details of your laptop it has a build in wireless so as you have noticed since its working now, you won't need to purchase a adapter for the laptop since it already has one build in.

Let me know if you need assistance with anything else.

Router cords


The color doesn't matter-all the cords are the same.
One cord goes from the modem to the Internet port on the router. The other goes from one of the numbered ports to the computer ethernet port.
