Router Configuration

DSL Setup
The direct line from your telephone jack should be connected to the DSL/LINE port on your broadband modem. Connect one end of an ethernet cable to the single LAN port of the modem, and connect the other end to the WAN/Internet port of the router. For a wireless connection, no other cables are necessary. For a wired connection, connect a second ethernet cable from ethernet ports 1, 2, 3, or 4 on the back of the router to the ethernet port on the computer. If you have an all-in-one modem/router combination, then you will not need a router as the all-in-one device provides both the internet and wifi to your house.

Fixed Wireless Standard Setup
Connect the ethernet cable from the POE or DATA IN port of your POE adapter to the WAN/Internet port of the router. For a wireless connection, no other connecting cables are necessary; your computer should be able to recognize your wireless network signal. For a wired connection, connect a second ethernet cable from ethernet ports 1, 2, 3, or 4 on the back of the router to the ethernet port on the computer.

Fixed Wireless Gigacenter Setup
Connect the ethernet cable from the POE of your POE adapter to the ETH-WAN port of the Gigacenter. For wireless connection, no other cables are necessary; your devices should detect your wireless network signal. For a wired signal connection, connect a second ethernet cable from ETH ports 1, 2, 3 or 4 on the back of the Gigacenter to the ethernet port on the computer.

Fiber Setup
Connect the ethernet cable from your ONT box to the WAN/Internet port of the router. For a wireless connection, no other connecting cables are necessary; your computer should be able to recognize your wireless network signal. For a wired connection, connect a second ethernet cable from ethernet ports 1, 2, 3, or 4 on the back of the router to the ethernet port on the computer.

  1. Check to see if all cords are plugged in securely and tightly
  2. Unplug the POE adapter from the surge protector, disconnecting all power. Leave off for 1 minute. If still not connecting try to unplug or turn off the power on the Gigacenter to do a reboot for 30 seconds. If still not connecting, proceed to next step.
  3. Check to see if cables are correct: POE ethernet cable goes from POE port on POE adapter to the antenna outside. The LAN ethernet cable on the POE adapter goes from the POE to the Gigacenter's ETH-WAN port. If not, please correct this, wait 1 minute and try to reconnect.
