The Signal Strength LEDs indicate the strength of the CLEAR 4G signal (five LEDS lit indicates
an excellent signal).
The Network LED indicates the status of the Modem connection to a computer.
The Power LED indicates the Modem is turned on.

Do not throw, drop, or dismantle the Modem.
Keep the Modem out of direct sunlight.
Keep pets and children from playing with the Modem.
Do not immerse the Modem in water or other liquid.
Make sure your hands are dry before handling the Modem.
Set up the Modem
Place the Modem on a Flat, Stable Surface
Rotate the foot of the Modem and place it upright on a flat, stable surface.
Do not place the Modem on its side or block the top air vents. The preferred location is near a
window and away from obstructions.
Plug in the Cables
1) Plug one end of the Ethernet Cable into the ethernet port on your computer and plug the other end
into the Modem.
2) Plug one end of the Power Adapter into the AC Power Port on the Modem and plug the other end
into a power outlet.

Set up the Modem (continued)
Connect to CLEAR 4G
As the Modem is searching for the
CLEAR 4G signal, five LED lights,
located on the side of the Modem, will
blink sequentially and then in unison.
When the Modem is connected to the
CLEAR 4G signal, the LED lights will
stop blinking and remain lit.
Note: The number of lights indicates the
CLEAR 4G signal strength. For optimal
signal strength, you should try different
locations for the Modem in order to
ensure a minimum of two lights are lit.
After you’ve plugged in the cables, the Modem automatically will search for a CLEAR 4G signal.
It’s best to position the Modem near an outside wall or window, and away from onstructions.
If at least two LED lights are not lit, try moving the Modem to another room.
 Move the Modem (not your computer) to another room,
and wait 15 – 20 seconds after the LED lights are solid
green, in order to obtain the most accurate reading of
the CLEAR 4G signal.
 To optimize the signal strength in the Modem’s current
location, try turning the Modem by small ¼”
increments.
 When you find the strongest CLEAR 4G signal,
reconnect the Modem to your computer.
 If, for some reason, the room with the strongest
CLEAR 4G signal is not where you want to put the
Modem, consider using a longer Ethernet Cable or
ordering a wireless router by logging into your CLEAR
online account.

Quick Tips
Understanding the LED Lights



LED Colors:
o The Power LED should be blue.
o The Signal Strength and Network Indicators should be green.
Power LED:
o The Power LED is on when the Modem is plugged in and has power.
o Troubleshooting Tips if the Power LED is not on.
 Move the Modem to a different power outlet.
 Make sure the Power Adaptor Cable is plugged in.
 Make sure the power outlet is working correctly.
Initial Search for Service:
o While the Modem is searching for CLEAR 4G service, the Signal Strength LEDs will blink in
a chase pattern.
o While the Modem is connecting to CLEAR 4G service, the Signal Strength LEDS all will
blink in unison.
o Once the Modem registers with CLEAR 4G service, the Signal Strength LEDS will stay lit –
the more LEDS lit, the stronger the signal strength.
o Troubleshooting Tips if the Modem doesn’t display at least two Signal Strength LED lights.
 The preferred location is near a window and away from obstructions.
 Move the Modem (not your computer) to another room, and wait 15 – 20 seconds
after the LED lights are solid green, in order to obtain the most accurate reading of
the CLEAR 4G signal.
o To optimize the signal strength in the Modem’s current location, try turning the Modem by
small ¼” increments.
o When you find the strongest CLEAR 4G signal, reconnect the Modem to your computer.
o If, for some reason, the room with the strongest CLEAR 4G signal is not where you want to
put the Modem, consider using a longer Ethernet Cable or ordering a wireless router by
logging in to your CLEAR online account.
To Maximize Signal Strength



It’s best to position the Modem near an outside wall or window, and away from obstructions.
If at least two LED lights are not lit, try moving the Modem to another room.
Quick Tips (continued)
Unable to browse the internet?
Try moving the Modem to different locations until at least two LED lights are lit.
OTHERWISE, TRY THESE STEPS TO GET ONLINE
 Turn the Modem off for 15 seconds.
 Bypass any power strips and try a different power outlet.
 Connect the Modem directly to the computer, bypassing all routers.
Note: If you can connect to the internet after removing a router from your setup, refer to the router’s
manual for further assistance.
 Check the connection between the Modem and your computer, make sure the cable fits securely
in the port, and then restart your computer.
Connect to your home wireless network



Connect one end of the Ethernet Cable to the Modem, and plug the other end into the internet port
of your wireless router (instead of your computer).
Plug the Power Adapter into the wireless router.

factory default setting.

and hold the pin on the Reset button for at least 5 seconds. The Modem will be reset to the factory
