As mentioned in the picture SLT have reserved the LAN4 port for the SLT Peo TV connection. To connect the network cable for Internet we have the LAN1, LAN2, and LAN3 available. [For Me it’s always easy to use the LAN2 and LAN3 instead of confusing the LAN1 port with LAN4 because the port arrangement is bit tricky. Specially when you work while get assistance over the phone].

Connect the RJ45 Network cable’s one end as shown to the router and the other end to computers Network port.

While INT(Internet) Indicator Light Still stays Red because haven’t configure the rougher software yet.
