Verify the Internet connection
Connect your computer to the modem using an Ethernet cable without the router installed.
Verify if your computer is getting an Internet connection by accessing a website.
QUICK TIP: Some modems have USB ports that are configured by the ISP to connect your computer to the Internet. If your Internet connection goes through a USB port, you will not be able to go online using an Ethernet connection. Contact your ISP if you want this feature in your modem.
Connect your cable modem to the WAN or Internet port of the router.
Plug in your modem and then your router to the power source.
Connect the computer to any of the Ethernet ports (1, 2, 3 or 4) of your router. If you are using a wireless computer, you will need to connect it first with an Ethernet cable.
NOTE: In this example, a computer is connected to port number 2.
Open a web browser and enter "http://192.168.2.1" in the address bar, then press [Enter].
Select Login on the upper right corner when the router’s web-based setup page appears.
Leave the Password field blank and click Submit.
Click Connection Type under Internet WAN.
Select your Connection Type. For cable ISPs, select Dynamic. If your Internet service is PPPoE, click here for more information.
Enter the Host Name in the field provided, then click Apply Changes.
NOTE: If you don't know the Host Name, contact your ISP.
IMPORTANT: Some ISPs would require you to clone your computer’s MAC Address to the router in order to set it up. To know how to do this, click here for instructions.
