Steps to Install the Router

  1. Unplug the modem. If the modem was already connected to another router, disconnect the cable between the router and modem. Ensure that the modem is turned off and is only connected to the wall jack of your Internet service.
  2. Now plug your modem back in. Use the Ethernet Cable that came with the package to connect the modem with the Internet port of your router.
  3. Connect the power adapter to your router. And plug it to a power supply.
  4. Wait for the Light in the Router to turn green.
  5. Now connect your Laptop to the Router using the Preset Wifi Settings which come with your router.

Once connected, you are all set! And ready to surf the net!
