  • Modem’s Ethernet cable should be unplugged from the PC,
  • That cable should be connected to the WAN or port marked as Internet Port of your router.
  • Your modem should be powered,
  • Power on the router,
  • To the Lan Port of your PC, another Ethernet cable should be connected.
  • Turn on your PC.
