If at any time you have problems please contact our 24/7 tech support for help at 1-800-218-6118. Inventory: Open the box containing your new ClearAccess router. You should have the following items: (Diagram above shows T-adapter and single filter. Dual filters, with T adapter built in, are also available for a minimal fee.) 1 ClearAccess router 1 Power supply 1 Phone cord 1 Yellow Ethernet cable 2 DSL line filters 1 Customer information sheet 1. If using a T Splitter, as in the diagram above, plug the splitter into your wall jack then plug your DSL line filter into one side of the filter. Then, plug your phone, fax machine, satellite receiver, etc. into the DSL filter. On the other side of the splitter, plug in one end of the supplied phone cord. Plug the other end into your DSL router. Section 1. Installing Phone Filters DSL Line filters filter out the DSL signal so you cannot hear it. These filters should be installed on all phones, fax machines, satellite receivers, etc. that share the same line as your DSL service. Please note that you DO NOT put a DSL filter on the phone cord that goes from the wall jack, or T Splitter, to your DSL router. Section 3: Log into your Router If you are not using a T Splitter to share your wall jack with both your DSL and a phone, as in the diagram above, plug one end of the supplied phone cord into your wall jack and the other end into your DSL router. 2. Next, take the supplied yellow Ethernet cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the back of the router and the other end into the Ethernet port on your computer, Xbox, PS2/3, WII, etc.. 3. Plug the supplied power cord into the router and then into an available nearby outlet. The DSL router will automatically turn on when you plug in the power. We strongly recommend the use of a quality power strip to help protect your equipment. IMPORTANT!!! LEAVE THE ROUTER PLUGGED IN FOR 10 MINUTES IN ORDER TO PROPERLY CONFIGURE. 2. To login to your router, enter the Username (last 6 characters of the MAC address. Example: BAD623) and Password (first 6 characters of the MAC address. Example 001E8C) and login to the router.
