I’ve called to see if my Ethernet point is turned on.

Hi, Jack,
 
I see you're having issues with a wired connection. I imagine things can be a bit frustrating when they don't work properly. Let's look at things and see what we can do to get you all sorted out with this.
 
I just need to clarify a few things. You're looking to plug a WiFi point in with an Ethernet cable, right? While you can use wired inputs, you do need to make sure that they are "downstream" of the modem.
 
This guide will run you through the process of hardwiring points.
 
If you are still unable to get things properly running, please come back and let me know. I'll be happy to continue helping you out on this. Thanks.
