To create an Ethernet connection, you should first get a good understanding of what it is. An Ethernet is a group of computer networking technologies that are linked together. While wireless technology seems to be more advanced; having computers physically connected with wires offers greater speeds as well as reliability. In this article, I will explain how to properly set up a single Ethernet connection for a home or office. This may seem like an easy task; however many often run into multiple problems in this process.
Assuming you have already purchased an internet package from a company as well as a cable modem, the first task would be to ensure that there is wall cable socket near your computer and then plug the Ethernet cable from your modem into your computer. The next step would be to plug the modem’s power cable into a wall socket therefor giving the modem power. These 2 steps would ensure you have a proper connection to your computer and the modem and can communicate.
After this is all done, the next steps vary depending on what internet service you use. Ideally, you should have access to the internet right away without any fine tuning however if any is needed, you would have to go into both your router and computer’s internet settings to set up the connection. Once you have a connection to the internet, you can also set up other computers or devices into the same modem or opt to use a router which would split the signal up providing you multiple internet pathways for other devices. Hopefully, this article will help you set up your Ethernet connection with a limited amount of stress and get you killing time by surfing the web promptly. Thanks for reading!
