Excessive RENs on a telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most but not all areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the local Telephone Company. The REN for this product is part of the product identifier that has the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal point. For example, 03 represents a REN of 0.3.

If the modem causes harm to the telephone network, the Telephone Company will notify you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. But if advance notice is not practical, the Telephone Company will notify the customer as soon as possible. Also, you will be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC if you believe it is necessary.

The Telephone Company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations or procedures that could affect the operation of the equipment. If this happens, the Telephone Company will provide advance notice in order for you to make necessary modifications to maintain uninterrupted service. If trouble is experienced with the modem, refer to the repair and warranty information in this document.

If the equipment is causing harm to the telephone network, the Telephone Company may request that you disconnect the equipment until the problem is resolved.

The user may make no repairs to the equipment.

2HARDWARE INSTALLATION AND PC SETUP

Overview

This chapter provides basic instructions for connecting the router to a computer or a LAN and to the Internet using DSL. The first part provides instructions to set up the hardware, and the second part describes how to prepare your PC for use with the router.

It is assumed that you have already subscribed to DSL service with your Internet service provider (ISP).

Connecting the Hardware

Caution

Shut down your PC and any other equipment before connecting it to the router.

To connect your router:

1Connect your ADSL line to the port labeled LINE on the rear panel of the device.

2For routers with a phone port (model numbers of the form 6211-I1-x0x), optionally connect your telephone to the port labeled PHONE.

3Connect your PC or a LAN:

Use the supplied Ethernet cable to connect your PC directly to the router. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the port labeled LAN on the router and connect the other end to the Ethernet port of your computer.

Alternatively, use the supplied USB cable to connect your PC directly to the router. Connect one end of the USB cable to the port labeled USB on the router and connect the other end to a free USB port on your PC. Install the USB drivers as described in the user’s guide on the CD.

If your LAN has more than one computer, you can attach one end of an Ethernet cable to a hub or a switch and the other to the LAN port of the router. Either a crossover or straight-through Ethernet cable can be used.
