The modem has two Ethernet ports and two Voicemail ports (gray color, only one of which is active) for our service we will only be using the Ethernet ports.
Connecting through the Ethernet port requires no drivers for installation and is compatible with any operating system.
If your PC is predisposed for wireless connection, instead of Ethernet, you can take advantage of the Wi-Fi connection.
The modem will automatically configure after you have it turned on, verifying the broadband signal on the light panel and you are ready to go.
WiFI SSID and Key
Your modem is preconfigured for WiFi. Once you are connected to the broadband signal you can connect your devices to the WiFi. The WiFi 2.4GHz and 5GHz SSID's and Keys are listed on the bottom of the modem as seen below.
Note: WiFi 2.4GHz has better range in your home than 5GHZ. The primary differences between the two frequencies are the range (coverage) and bandwidth (speed) that the bands provide. The 2.4 GHz band provides coverage at a longer range but transmits data at slower speeds. The 5 GHz band provides less coverage but transmits data at faster speeds.
Positioning the Modem
To get the best signal reception and the best Wi-Fi diffusion, we recommend that you place the modem at the most central point of the house near a window and preferably in a high position (second story if available) and away from sources of interference and from surfaces or metal walls.
On the front of the modem are the service lights that indicate the status.
