Here are the first steps you will take as you prepare for our call:
Locate and open modem box (delivered to your door)
Locate a telephone jack next to a power outlet
Pull out the power cord from the box
Connect one end of the power cord to the modem. connect the other end to the wall outlet.
On the side of the modem, ensure the "power" button is pressed in.
Connect one end of the DSL cable to the modem and the other end to the wall jack (similar to the port in the image below).
Once power and DSL are connected, the modem lights will illuminate (take about a minute) and you will be connected to the internet. Should lights not illuminate, you may need to test a different wall jack. We’ll walk through additional troubleshooting scenarios as needed to ensure you’re connected.
