    I hope that this is not a duplicate as I thought it was posted awhile ago and I don't see it.
    Our son disconnected my notebook with the Hi Speed Modem, Alpha Shield Hardware and Router.
    I am embarrassed to post here as I now have 3 cables that I attached 'yellow', 'blue' and 'red' plastic identifiers too and my notebook was well connected and worked fine.

    Now I have these 3 colour coded cables and my hi speed modem, Alpha Shield Hardware firewall and Router.

    At least I know enough :eek: to take the phone line and connect it to the 'ADSL'...Phone In on the Modem. However on the Modem there is Ethernet??? I don't where this cord goes to?
    Then there is the Alpha Shield hardware firewall which I believe hooked up in between and it has 'Cable/DSL' and 'PC'...I don't know how to hook those up and where.

    Then there is my Router which has 'LAN' and 'WAN' and I don't know what to do with these?

    And then of course a Cable has to go into my PC?

    I hope that someone can help this inept user and I will document the hookups down.

    Thank you for your time.:eek::confused: I forgot to mention that the router and firewall are all wired.

    Please close the thread as I have resolved the problem.

    1. The "Ethernet" from Modem > Alpha Shield "Cable/DSL"
    2. "PC" connection from Alpha Shield > "WAN" on Router and "LAN" connection on Router to the Notebook.

    I thought that I should post this in the event that another member maybe interested.
    This thread can be closed.
    Thank you.
