Adding wired devices to your network

Connecting a computer to your network through a wire has several advantages.  One of them is having a higher bandwidth compared to a wireless connection.  To establish a wired connection to your router, the computer needs to have an Ethernet adapter.  You need to use a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the router.
NOTE:  This article assumes that the router has already been configured for your local network, and that the modem is already connected to your router.
Connect one (1) end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the computer and connect the other end to any of the numbered ports at the back of the router.
After connecting to the router, an IP address will be assigned to your computer and you should be able to connect to the Internet. If your computer is not online, you may need to check if it has the proper connection type, IP address, and possible MAC filtering.
