Before you begin, make sure
that all of your hardware is
powered off, including the
Router, PCs, hubs, switches,
and cable or DSL modem.
Connect one end of an Ethernet network cable to one of
the numbered ports on the
back of the Router (see Figure
B). Connect the other end to
an Ethernet port on a network
device, e.g., a PC, print server,
hub, or switch.
Repeat this step to connect
more PCs or other network
devices to the Router.

In Step 2, you will need the setup
instructions provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If you do
not have this information, then contact your ISP before proceeding.
Connect the included AC
power cable to the Router’s
Power port on the side of the
Router, as shown in Figure E,
and then plug the other end of
the power cable into an electrical outlet.
The System LED on the front
panel will light up as soon as
the power adapter is connected properly.

The instructions from your ISP tell you
how to set up your PC for Internet
access. Because you are now using
the Router to share Internet access
among several computers, you will
use the setup information to configure the Router instead of your PC.
NOTE:: Make sure your PC’s Ethernet
adapter is set to obtain an IP address
automatically. For more information,
refer to Windows Help.

Connect your cable or DSL
modem’s Ethernet cable to
the Router’s Internet port. If
using the DMZ/Internet port,
connect a second cable to it,
and the other end to the network device , e.g., modem or
public server. See Figure C.
