I'm planning to get a long cable but is it an Ethernet cable? Because i look at my router, there are quite a number of ports and only one states Ethernet. The rest of the ports (like 4 or so) states Local. Would an ethernet cable fit in the Local ports? Because the ethernet cable is required to connect it directly to a modem.
Note: My router is an old one.
Do the new routers on market have more than 1 ethernet ports?
Thank you guys for helping me
One more thing, i have a mac computer online too. Most of the time, its just behind me. Will these affect any of my connections? And after i buy the ethernet cable and connect it directly from the router to my Windows computer, will my Mac computer still be able to connect wirelessly to the internet?
My mac and windows, disconnect at the same time each time it happens and my internet doesn't get back on automatically. -_-" i have to on and off the modem. Does that mean that something is wrong? Cause my modem is fairly new but my router is kinda ... old. [/Edit]
