Preparing for Installation
Warning
To avoid electric shock, do not connect safety extra-low voltage (SELV) circuits
to telephone-network voltage (TNV) circuits. LAN ports contain SELV circuits,
and WAN ports contain TNV circuits. Some LAN and WAN ports both use RJ-45
connectors. Use caution when connecting cables.
Warning
During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage. Do
not directly touch the backplane during with your hand or any metal tool, or you
could shock yourself.
Warning
This equipment is not designed for making emergency telephony calls when the
power fails. Alternative arrangements should be made for access to emergency
services. Access to emergency services can be affected by any call-barring
function of this equipment.
Warning
To reduce the risk of fire, use only No.26 AWG or large telecommunication line
cord.
Warning
This equipment contains a ring signal generator (ringer), which is a source of
hazardous voltage. Do not touch the RJ-11 (phone) port wires (conductors), the
conductors of a cable connected to the RJ-11 port, or the associated
circuit-board when the ringer is active. The ringer is activated by an incoming
call.
Warning
Ths ISDN connection is regarded as a source of voltage that should be
inaccessible to user contact. Do not attempt to tamper with or open any public
telephone operator (PTO)-provided equipment or connection hardware. Any
hardwired connection (other than by a nonremovable, connect-one-time-only
plug) must be made only by PTO staff or suitably trained engineers.

Preparing for Installation
Warning
Network hazardous voltages are present in the ISDN cable. If you detach the
ISDN cable, detach the end away from the router first to avoid possible electric
shock. Network hazardous voltages also are present on the system card in the
area of the ISDN port (RJ-45 connector), regardless of when power is turned off
(by pressing power switch to standby).
Warning
Ultimate disposal of this product should be handled according to all national
laws and regulations.
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is a transfer of electrostatic charge between bodies
of different electrostatic potentials, such as an operator and a piece of electrical
equipment. It occurs when electronic components are improperly handled, and it
can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. Electrostatic discharge is
more likely to occur with the combination of synthetic fibers and dry atmosphere.
Always follow these steps to prevent ESD when you remove and replace
components:
Step 1
Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap that you provide, ensuring that it makes good
skin contact.
Caution
To properly guard against ESD damage and shocks, the wrist strap and cord must
operate effectively.
Step 2
Do not touch any exposed contact pins or connector shells of interface ports that
do not have a cable attached.
If cables are connected at one end only, do not touch the exposed pins at the
unconnected end of the cable.

user selected during the ordering process.
Note
The optional orange ISDN S/T cable used for connecting a Cisco 836 router’s
ISDN port to the ISDN service provider is for dial backup and remote
management. The Cisco SOHO 96 router needs this cable for remote
management. The user may order this optional cable additionally.
Note
There are six different power cords. Each was designed to meet the specifications
of the cable wall jack for a particular country. Each of the six power cords is
different from the others. The default cord shown in Figure 2-1 is European Union
standard specification.
Preventing Damage to the Router
Follow these guidelines when connecting devices to your router:
•
Connect the color-coded cables supplied by Cisco Systems to the color-coded
ports on the back panel.
•
If you must supply your own cables, see Appendix A, “Specifications and
Cables,” for cable specifications. If this appendix does not provide
