plug is provided with this product. It has been designed to be connected to a compatible modular jack that is also compliant.

The Ringer Equivalence Number (or REN) is used to determine the number of devices that may be connected to a telephone line. 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.

Connection to party line service is subject to state tariffs. Contact the state public utility commission, public service commission or corporation commission for information.

If the site has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, ensure the installation of the modem does not disable the alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, consult your Telephone Company or a qualified installer.

HARDWARE 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).

6218-A2-ZB23-10

17

Hardware Installation and PC Setup

Connecting the Hardware

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

1Verify that the router’s power switch is in the Off (outward) position. Verify that any PCs and other LAN devices you will attach (such as hubs or switches) are turned off.

2Use the provided modular phone cable to connect the LINE jack of the router to your RJ11 wall jack.

3Use the provided Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the router. Attach one end of the Ethernet cable to one of the LAN ports on the back of the router and connect the other end to the Ethernet port or Network Interface Card (NIC) in your PC.

Connect any other PCs, hubs, and switches to the remaining LAN ports. Either a crossover or a straight-through Ethernet cable can be used: the router determines the type of signal required.

4Connect the cylindrical power plug into the POWER connector on the back of the device. Next:

If you have a wall-mount adapter, plug the AC adapter into a wall outlet or a power strip.

If you have a table-top adapter, use the AC power cord to connect the adapter to a wall outlet or power strip.

The supplied power adapter may look different than the one illustrated here.

5Turn on your PC and any other LAN devices, such as hubs or switches.

6Turn on the router using its power switch.

7Verify that the router's LEDs are illuminated as shown in Table 3.
