How Do I Connect USB Network Devices?

To connect USB devices

Read the warnings and caution on this page. Then, follow the subsequent installation procedures to ensure proper gateway cable modem operation when connecting USB network devices.

Verify that you have installed the USB drivers on your PC before continuing with these instructions. SeeHow Do I Install USB Drivers, earlier in this guide for more information on installing the USB drivers.

1.Select locations for USB network devices. For more information, see

How Do I Select and Place USB Network Devices, earlier in this guide.

2.Connect the USB port on the gateway cable modem to your computer.

3.Connect one or more USB network device to the gateway cable modem.

If you want to connect more than one USB network device to the gateway cable modem or to your computer, you will need to purchase and install a USB hub.

4.Connect the active RF coaxial cable to the CABLE connector on the back of the gateway cable modem. Use an optional cable signal splitter to add a TV, a DHCT orset-topconverter, or a VCR.

5.After all connections are complete, insert the AC power adapter cord into the DC POWER connector on the back of the gateway cable modem, and then plug the power adapter into an AC power source.

6.The gateway cable modem begins an automatic search to locate and sign on to the network that provides the telephone service. This process may take up to 5 minutes. The gateway cable modem is ready for use when the CABLE status indicator on the front panel stops blinking and illuminates continuously.

7.Verify that all USB devices are working properly.

You will not be able to check the USB front panel status indicator on the gateway cable modem until after at least one USB network device is connected and operating on the network.
