hi all
i recently bought a brand new belkin wireless router 802.11g 54 Mbps. i already have a ntl:home 100/120 (Ambit) cable modem that is connected to my computer through a usb cable. i started to confiqure the router and all was going well untill it asked me to connect the modem to the router with an ethernet cable. seeing as i had been using a usb cable before i did not have the ethernet cable that came witht the modem. i used one that i had laying about but i am not sure what it is and it did not work. does anybody know what ethernet cable i should buy and where from?
thanks alot , dan

you dont really need a fancy ethernet cable, just go to a local staples or best buy and pick one up. the stores will probably only have about five variations and all of them will probably work... but you'll want something called a "cat5e"
ethernet cable. If all else fails just ask a store associate i suppose

Hope that helped.
