Hardware Installation for Connection to Your Broadband Modem
Power down your network devices.
Locate an optimum location for the router.
NOTE: The best place for the router is usually at the center of your wireless network, with line of sight to all of your mobile stations.
Fix the direction of the antennas. Try to place the router in a position that will best cover your wireless network.
NOTE: The higher you place the antenna, the better performance will be.
Connect a standard Ethernet network cable to the router's Internet port.
Next, connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your cable or DSL broadband modem.
Connect your network PCs or Ethernet devices to the Router's numbered ports using standard Ethernet network cabling.
Connect the AC power adapter to the Router's Power port and the other end into an electrical outlet. Only use the power adapter supplied with the Router. Use of a different adapter may damage the product.
Connect a standard telephone to the Router's Phone1 port. If you have a second phone, connect the telephone to the Router's Phone2 port.
