Step-by-Step Installation Instructions

Preparing the Fiber Jumper:

Find the bulkhead connector.

Remove the dust cap from the fiber jumper.

Use the alcohol pad to clean the fiber tip. Wipe once and let it dry for 15 seconds.

Connecting the Fiber Jumper:

Attach one end to the bulkhead connector.

Clean the other end, then connect it to the PON port on the ONT.

Safety Warning: Avoid looking directly into the fiber jumper’s light to prevent eye damage.

Activating the ONT (for Internet-only services):

Plug the ONT into a power outlet.

Press the ‘On/Off’ button and wait up to 10 minutes for the lights to turn green.

Setting Up Your Wireless Router:

Connect the router to a power source and turn it on.

Link the Ethernet cable from the router’s blue WAN port to the ONT’s yellow Ethernet port.

Wait for the router’s power light to become solid.

Connecting to Wi-Fi:

Access the wireless network using the name and password on the router’s back label.

Additional Tips

Hardwiring to a Computer

For a direct connection, use an Ethernet cable from your PC to the router’s ports.

Faster Speeds

Connect to the network ending in ‘_5GHz’ for enhanced speed.
