Hi, I'm new here and a computer dummy. I am trying to get more speed on my laptop and have tried moving router around as well as using a wifi extender to no avail.
I would like to hard wire laptop directly into router.
I have a router and modem connected to a desktop computer (another family members) in another room. This is the router I'd like to connect to.
I will be using a Cat5e Ethernet patch cable.
I have an HP Pavillion 17 notebook with Windows 8.1 on it.
Router: Netgear N600 Dualband WNDR3400 Modem: Motorola SURFboard eXtreme DOCSIS 3.0
What steps do I need to take to get my laptop wired to my router?
Thank you very much!
