Firstly – let’s make sure you have a standard 4 port router.
Whether you have BT type ADSL broadband or Virgin type CABLE broadband you
will have a broadband modem (or hub) and a router (sometimes built into the hub like a BT Home Hub)
The back of a typical router looks like this,
The WAN or ADSL port comes from your broadband modem into your router and the LAN port shown can be used to attach additional devices (like the Blade).
In the example above the grey cable is coming from your broadband modem and the blue lead can go to a PC or Laptop or Blade unit. There are several ways to connect without using long wires from your router to your Blade unit (especially if they are in separate rooms).. however, for now – let’s assume you are running a direct cable from the router into the back of the Blade 7000S.
