The modem already has wired ports on it. Just run an ethernet cable to the device you want to connect.

Only if the device is powered on and using the connection - the light is simply an indicator that communication is possible (it blinks when being actively used) .

Excuse the messy desk but, that's my Wifi Modem It has a phone for Viasat Voice and, two computers connected via Ethernet cables. I also use a few wireless connected devices in my home.

Just plug the Ethernet cables in and, you're good to go.
