The D-Link DCM-301 DOCSIS™ 3.0 Cable Modem provides high-speed Internet access to the Internet. You can use your cable modem to directly connect one computer in your network to the Internet or connect to a Broadband router to allow multiple devices to share the Internet.

After you install the cable modem, you must contact your cable provider (ISP) and register the MAC address. The MAC address is located on the label on the bottom of the modem.

Below are two common ways to connect your DCM-301 modem to your network.The diagram on the left shows the connection with a broadband router. The diagram on the right shows the connection directly to a computer. Note that the DCM-301 can be placed horizontal or vertical using the included stand (as seen in the diagrams below).
