Check your cable modem and its accessories. Take the modem out of the box and determine if what you have is indeed a cable modem. It should have a coaxial port
or a small cylindrical protrusion located on its back. A DSL modem wont have that; instead
DSL modems have telephone cable ports like those you find on telephones into which you can plug in the telephone line coming from the wall. Accessories should include the following:An Internet cable for connecting the modem to your computerThe cable modems power adapterA coaxial cable for connecting the modem to the cable lineCheck the voltage rating of the power adapter. Before you plug a modem
make sure to read first the voltage rating written on the power adapter to make sure that it matches the voltage rating of the outlet you are going to plug it into. Doing so will help avoid any short circuit.Power up. Once youve taken the cable modem out of the box
take the power adapter and plug it to the power port on the modem (located along the area of the coaxial cable). Take the other end of the power adapter
and plug it to a power outlet.Connect the cable to the modem. Take the coaxial cable coming from your wall and connect it to the port at the back of the modem. Tighten it securely by screwing the cable into the port.Take the LAN
or Internet cable
and plug one end to the back of the cable modem. Theres only one port on the modem where the Internet cable can fit into
so its pretty easy find. Take the other end of the Internet cable
and plug it to the back of your computer (the same port with the modem).Switch on your computer and your cable modem. Press the Power button on your modem to switch it on. As it boots up
the lights on the cable modem will blink
telling you that its trying to connect to the ISPs server. Once the cable modem establishes a connection
the lights will become steady.You can now start surfing the Internet using your cable modem.
