Multiple pc's on cable network

By gknicks71 ·
I have cable modem internet, and I have a linksys router. I need to be able to share the internet on all my computers in the house. How can I do this? With my dsl I just plugged the other computers into the router and they detected proxy settings and went online, it is not that easy with cable modem.

It shouldn't be that more difficult with the cable modem. Check the instructions that came with the linksys and configure it for the setup on your cable modem. If your PC has hard coded setting from the ISP of the cable modem then you will need to clone the settings from the PC to the router and run DHCP to connect up your PCs. Most broadband routers can do this.

Your router might still be setup for DSL.

Since it doesn't sound like you are real familiar with configuring these - I would suggest resetting the device first.

Many of the routers are configured for cable by default.

Usually factory defaults will reload if you unplug the power. While plugging the unit back in hold the reset in for at least 5 seconds.


You may require some additional configuration depending on your cable company.

Plug in the cable modem ethernet jack into the uplink on the router.

The other PC's into the other jacks.

There should not be any proxy settings setup on the PC's.

1. Plug on the cat-5 cable to the cablemodem and the WAN port of the Router.
2. At the uplink port of the router you can connect a hub/switch to that port. To make more connection.
3. Connect your PC to the Hub/Switch using Cat-5 or LAN-Card to Hub/Switch Port.
4. Power up Cable Modem, then the Router , then the HUB/Switch and Then your PC.
5. At you Network Configuration, At the TCP/IP settings. You Should Enable DCHP, remove the gateway. Disable DNS. Then Reboot.
6. Configure now your Browser to connect the internet throught the LAN.
7. After Configuring the Browser, Restart
8. Open your Browser, at the Address Bar Type : http://192.168.1.1
9. Then now you can access the firmware.
10. Using the firmware you can connect to the net.

If your cable company supplied you with a host name, something like "AA123456-B" you must configure this in the router. Also, each PC must have a unique computer name. To configure the router, open your browser, click file||open, then type: 192.168.1.1 (router address). Enter the correct host name provided by your provider. You may also want to check the LinkSys web site for firmware updates.
