Arris BGW210

We got a new entertainment center last night and in the process I forgot where the connections needed to be hooked up on Arris BGW210.


Can somebody help me out with that?

Here's the general connection setup:

  • Wall/street connection (might have an ATT branded wall plate) connects (possibly with a green cable) to gateway's green broadband port (or red ONT port if you have fiber). 
  • Use any one of the yellow gateway ethernet ports to the network port on your dvr.
  • If you have wireless receivers connect the WAP (wireless access point, little box) with ethernet to another one of the free yellow ethernet gateway ports.
  • Wired receivers would also have ethernet connections to any of the yellow gateway ethernet ports.
  • Internet ethernet connections (if you are not using wifi) similarly connect to the yellow gateway ethernet ports.
