Thanks Wanderer for that link
I am wandering that does my router support to share my CABLE internet connection.

As i was reading some other posts i find that ADSL router and Cable/DSL routers have different socket's at back, while Cable/DSL router has 4 Lan ports plus 1 extra LAN port which is connected to (WAN) where as ADSL router has 4 LAN ports plus one RJ11 port.

If you could clear out my confusion that would be great......

Thanks

ADSL uses a phone line.

RJ-45 = standard network jack
RJ-11 = standard phone jack

If a router is a combination unit (ie: combination modem/router/wireless access point) then it will have an RJ-11 jack for the "internet" connection.

If your router is just a router and you have a separate modem, then the modem will have an RJ-11 jack for the "internet" connection and an RJ-45 jack for the "LAN" connection which you would connect to the "WAN" (internet, external....however it's labelled" jack on the router.

Cable uses a coaxial cable.

If your cable router is a combination unit, it will have the coaxial type connector for the "internet". If your router is just a router, you'll have a separate modem and as above for the ADSL, the router will have an RJ-45 for the "internet" connection and the modem will have a coaxial connector for it's "internet" connection.

Most, but not all routers have 4 LAN ports. Some only have one.

The router you mention is not compatible with Cable Internet. It's ONLY for ADSL service. Take a look at this link, I highly recommend Linksys:

I also recommend Belkin:

If price is an issue, I have installed the N50 for several people and they are all very satisfied with it.

While I appreciate you're trying to help, considering this thread is 14 days old and the OP didn't respond to the last couple of posts, I suspect you're wasting your time reply.

Just as a favor, please don't dredge up any more old threads.

Thanks

Also belkin and linksys are the LAST routers I would ever recommend based on extensive experience with both.
