Disconnect your cable box from the coaxial cable. Connect the coaxial cable splitter to the end of the cable, then run a new coaxial cable to the cable modem and to the cable box.


Connect the cable modem to the A/C adapter, then plug the adapter into a wall socket. Turn on the cable modem--Charter uses several types of cable modem, so refer to the literature included with your self installation kit for the specific brand of modem.


Connect your computer to the modem using the ethernet cable. Insert the self-installation CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive and follow the prompts to install the Charter software. Your Internet connection is now ready to use.
