Ethernet Ports Disabled? Netgear Cable Gateway CG3000D

Have a Netgear Cable Gateway CG3000D, but none of the 4 ethernet ports work. WiFi is working fine. I’ve reset to default settings but still nothing. Are these ports disabled on purpose? How can I enable? The lights for the ports are just amber... tried a Roku, Smart TV... and still none connecting...

    Have you checked each LAN port with the WAN port? Here are the steps if you haven't. 1. Turn on the router and wait for the power LED to become solid green or white. (Note that the LED lights may be different depending on your router. Please refer to the user manual for more information). 2. Take one Ethernet cable, and connect one end to any of the router’s LAN port, and the other end to the router’s WAN port. 3. Check the LEDs. The LAN LED and WAN LED should both be lit. In this example, LAN 3 LED and WAN LED are both lit
