I am temporarily going to be living at my parent’s house for a few months and im getting some computers set up, although one of them does not have a wireless adapter to receive wireless internet. We found a cable jack in the room they are set up in, however it’s been unused ever since my parents got the house. I hooked up my modem to it, and though it powers on and all lights are green and Ethernet cable connected, the computer still has no internet. And when selecting the internet options on the computer itself it does not show their internet’s name that appears on other computers. Instead it just reads as Network 2.
We suspect two things.
- The Jack is not “Live”
- The modem needs further set up to get their Internet service to send through it.
Modem is a Netgear AC1900 C6300BD if that helps. (just readin’ the words off of it here)
