This step by step Manual will give you detailed guideline on how to connect to the internet with your decoders, either HITV,DSTV,MYTV etc. you must take note that all relevant equipments for this setup must be available before doing the configuration. Introduction
Communication between computers is a major part of the PC computing Industry. Thanks to the World Wide Web (www), no computer user is an Island. Whether using a dialup modem or broad band technology, virtually all PCs can be connected to other computers, enabling them to share files, send and receiving email, and access the Internet. With the explosive growth of the internet, modem and network technologies were joined because both could use the same client software and protocols. Today, the most popular suite of networking protocols –TCP/IP – is used on both Local Area Network (LANs) and the internet. When you dial into an Internet Service Protocol (ISP), you are actually connecting to a network using a modem instead of a network interface card, and when you use most broadband services, your path to the internet typically starts with a network interface card, built in network card, built in network port, network – to – USB adapter, or even a wireless connection. Thanks to the combination of huge multi megabyte downloads needed to update software and support hardware, dynamics websites with music and full – motion videos and increased demand for online services, even the fastest dial up modem (such as mtn fastlink, starcomms, visafones etc) which can download at just 53kbps, isn’t sufficient for heavy internet use. More and More users are taking advantage of various types of broadband internet access solution. But the most preferred to me is the cable decoder internet access system. For many users, cable modem service which piggybacks on the same cable TV service line that brings your TV many channels, represent both a big boost in speed from the available with ISDN and a major savings in initial cost and monthly charges which your subscription fee covers. Cable Modem Services normally is sold as an “all you can eat” unlimited access plan with a modest installation cost (materials to buy to commence installation). Because more and more cable networks (such as DSTV, HITV, CTL and the most recent DAAR SAT) support a single standard, you can choose any of the decoders of all this cable TV providers to connect your system to the internet.
Connection Requirements and Overview
2.LINKSYS CABLE MODEM
3.RJ – 45 NIC Cable
5.Router (WIRELESS OR WIRED if you intend to use more than one pc) 6.DECODER (mytv, hitv, dstv, daarsat etc)
7.Coaxial to RJ-45 converter or adapter
There are many types of Satellite Decoder Splitter, you buy your favorite at the shops where it’s been sold what do we use the Splitter for? This enables you to create a parallel connection for the coaxial cable (this is the cable that is used to connect your decoder to the TV and as well as the decoder to the Dish hanged outside).the splitter will share the signal that comes from the dish outside between the TV and the Router cable modem, which will convert the signal to an internet signal * LINKSYS CABLE MODEM
Definition of a Cable Modem: A cable modem is a device that delivers high-speed Internet connectivity via a cable television company which serves as the Internet service provider (ISP). A cable modem requires a subscription to cable Internet service, and will not function by simply Connecting it to a cable TV (CATV) feed. Externally, a cable modem resembles a DSL modem. The coax cable that brings in the digital CATV signal provides a channel for upstream and downstream Internet service. This does not interfere with television, as there is plenty of "real...
