DSL Modem Setup
What you're gonna need
Dual port line filterThese have a black port like the single port line filter above and a gray port that is for your DSL modem
Single port line filter(s)These have one black port for all other devices attached to a phone outlet.
Ethernet cableUsed to connect the modem to your computer, wireless router or other device.
Phone lineUsed to connect the modem to your phone outlet.
Power supplyUsed to power the modem.
The modemIt's a VisionNet M405
Here's the back of the modem where you'll find the gray port, the yellow port, the on/off button and the power port
What you're gonna do:
You will have to know where your power outlet on the wall or surge protector is, where phone outlets are, all the devices that you will be connecting to the phone outlets, and where the ethernet port on your computer, wireless router or other device is.
Everywhere in the house you have a device (telephone, fax machine, satellite TV receiver, alarm system, etc..) you will need to plug that device into the black port on a line filter and plug the line filter into a phone outlet.
Connect the phone line provided to the gray port on the line filter and to the gray port on the modem. NOTE: if you don't have any other devices (besides the modem) you are going to connect to the phone outlet, you do not need to use a line filter at all.
Connect the yellow ethernet cable to the yellow port on the modem and to an ethernet port on the back of your computer, wireless router or other device.
Plug the smaller end of the power adapter into the power port on the modem and plug the other into a power outlet on the wall or surge protector.
Make sure that the on/off button on the modem is in the "On" position (pressed in), and take a look at the front of the modem. After a few minutes, the DSL and Internet lights will be on. You are now connected!
