Hello, I'm a 53 yo. Newbie to this cgmining stuff and I bought a R606 miner and have only been able to download the newest cgminer software onto my computer but I do not have the slightest idea on how to set it up to run using I guess its prohash. Please help since I'm a dumb A__ with this and need some guidance. Thanks ahead of time for any and all help with this. I have tried with the first two replies with no help. I'm going nut's trying...Sooo many hours trying! LOL! I try searching forum for cgminer help but get a search error stating"searching too fast" error.

Have you seen this thread before? GekkoScience Terminus R606 750GH (up to 1TH) quiet miner, now shipping

And I think it's more appropriate if you can move this thread on Hardware or Mining support.

If nothing is right with what I've said, just go on the Mining section because it has many childboards related to it. I hope it helps.

FYI, "R606 miner" is BM1387 and here's the official support thread: GekkoScience NewPac / Terminus R606 (BM1387) Official Support Thread.

To get you started, select a mining pool first (example: ckpool) and select your server depending on your location.
After that, do whatever you were instructed to connect the R606 miner (I'm not familiar with USB miners)
then, open you cgminer and enter one of the command below (whole line).

Run syntax:

*nix [if not root level privileges, see Q&A]
./cgminer -o stratum+tcp://pool.ckpool.org:3333 -u 1BURGERAXHH6Yi6LRybRJK7ybEm5m5HwTr -p x --suggest-diff 128

Windows
cgminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://pool.ckpool.org:3333 -u 1BURGERAXHH6Yi6LRybRJK7ybEm5m5HwTr -p x --suggest-diff 128

OS X
cgminer -o stratum+tcp://pool.ckpool.org:3333 -u 1BURGERAXHH6Yi6LRybRJK7ybEm5m5HwTr -p x --suggest-diff 128
I'll just explain the Windows syntax:
Yellow: The this depends on the Pool of your choice, some are stratum, http or socks5 (for ckpool: change the bolded part with the server of your choice).
Green: Worker ID, your earnings will be sent here (Bold: your wallet's Bitcoin address).

Thank you so much for the info its a huge help knowing what means what. Can you please tell me what -p and x stand for? DO I also have to create a notepad page with this code written to it and save it into where I have the cgminer stored or do I just enter this into the cgminer program when I start it up everytime? I want to thank you for all your help. I've been spending 4-6 hours a day trying to figure this out with no success. Thanks again!

AFAIK, the next characters after the (lower-case) "-p" argument is the password but the example above was followed by "x" instead of a password (at least that was specified by the quoted post because ckpool doesn't requires it).
If you're using a pool that requires a password, specify the password instead of x.

And I think "--suggest-diff" was just added because of the expected hashrate of R606.

DO I also have to create a notepad page with this code written to it and save it into where I have the cgminer stored or do I just enter this into the cgminer program when I start it up everytime?
You can create a shortcut of cgminer.exe and add those to the Properties -> Shortcut Tab "Target", then save. (are you using Windows?).

Example: "C:\CGMiner_Folder_location\Cgminer_version.exe -o stratum+tcp://pool.ckpool.org:3333 -u 1bitcoinaddress -p x --suggest-diff 128"

I'm still lost I enter the info as provided but get this error. Sorry I can't seem to paste a snip of the error message. This is so hard. I'm ready to toss this thing in the trash.I type:::   cgminer.exe -o stratum+tpc://prohashing.com:3335 -u Myusername.1 -p MyPassword x --gekko-r606800    I press enter then I get a prompt for username then password then I get a : Failed to resolve (?wrong url) cgminer.exe -o stratum+tcp; ...then the code from above I put in then:::Failed alive testing, re input details.    I'm lost as to what to do.

Have you already tried the example above for testing purposes?

For ProHashing, you need to register (I think you already did) just use cgminer.exe -o stratum+tpc://prohashing.com:3335 you don't need to put your password as an argument (it's for the server's password for extra features).
The problem might be the "-p" argument that wasn't included here, the extra "x" and the last part "--gekko-r606800", but it will work with your username included.

I don't mine on ProHashing, 'tis may be wrong.
If there's a problem, seek help from Prohashing pool miners to the official thread (link in my 1st reply).
