Connecting the Cable Modem
Ethernet Connection to One Computer
Make the connections to the modem in the following sequence (Fig. 22):
Connect one end of the coaxial cable to the cable connection in the wall, and the other end to
the connector on the modem labeled "CABLE."
Insert the plug from the AC power supply into the power AC jack on the cable modem and the
two-prong plug into the AC outlet.
Note: Use only the power supply that accompanied this unit. Using other adapters may damage
Connect one end of the Ethernet cable (straight-wired, see below) to the Ethernet port on the
back of your computer, and the other end to the ETHERNET port on the cable modem's back
Make sure that the Ethernet cable is straight-wired (not "null" or crossover-wired). However,
you will need a crossover-type cable if you are connecting the modem to a hub, or a hub
within a port switch that provides the same function.
