ADSL Setup Info

Note: to set up your ADSL link, you will need to connect the modem to:

  • your phone line
  • your PC or home network
  • the power

    Connecting to Your Phone Line
    Connect your system as follows:

    | -> Filter -> Fax
    | -> Double Adaptor | -> Filter -> Phone
    | | -> Filter -> Other Device
    Phone Jack -> |
    | -> ADSL Modem -> Your computer (on 'Line' port)

    Connect all components and turn them on. After about a minute, the SYN light on the modem should light up and should remain steady, not flashing. This indicates that your modem has identified an active ADSL line connection.

    NOTE: If you connect too many devices [including telephone, fax, answering machine and the like], your ADSL may be affected and may fail. Please check the underside of your phone for the REN [Ringer Equivalence Number] which should not exceed 2.5.

    It is vital that you set up the telephone side correctly, or you may accidentally filter out the ADSL signal from the ADSL modem and the service will not work.

    If the SYN light flashes or does not come on at all, please contact Technical Support.
