Set your DSL modem to bridge mode. Visit the Configuring Your DSL Modem for a Home Network page for further instructions on how to do this. If you are using a Cable modem, you can skip to Step 2.
NOTE: Only your DSL modem and computer should be connected for this part.
Turn off the modem and router if they are both on. Take the Ethernet cord from your computer and plug it into the Internet, LAN, or WLAN port of the router. Take another Ethernet cord and connect the computer to the router. If your router has multiple Ethernet ports, plug the Ethernet cord into the first port (Port 1).
Turn on the modem. Wait between 10-15 seconds, then turn on the router.
Once an Internet connection has been established on your computer, configure your broadband router. Please select the type of router you have below:
Linksys WRTP54P for DSL
Linksys WRTP54G for Cable
NOTE: We currently only have instructions for the above router(s). The configuration may be the same if the brand of your router is similar to any of the aforementioned router(s).
Connect the other device(s) to the router via an Ethernet cord. The maximum amount of ports your router has equates to the amount of devices that can be connected on this network.
