FCC Information
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15
of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However,
there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user
is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
❑
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
❑
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
❑
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
❑
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user's
authority to operate the equipment.
NOTE: The manufacturer is not responsible for any radio or TV interference caused by unauthorized modifications
to this equipment. Such modifications could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
Only peripherals (computer input/output devices, terminals, printers, etc.) that comply with FCC Class B limits may
be attached to this computer product. Operation with noncompliant peripherals is likely to result in interference to
radio and television reception.
All cables used to connect peripherals must be shielded and grounded. Operation with cables, connected to
peripherals, that are not shielded and grounded, may result in interference to radio and television reception.
FCC Part 68
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC Rules and the requirements adopted by the ACTA. On the modem
card is a label that contains, among other information, a product identifier in the format US: AAAEQ##TXXXX. If
requested, this number must be provided to the telephone company.
This modem uses the USOC RJ-11C telephone jack.
A telephone plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone network must
comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. The REN is used to
determine the quantity of devices which may be connected to the telephone line.
Excessive RENs on the telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most,
but not all areas, the sum of the RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that may
be connected to the line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the telephone company. For products approved
after July 23, 2001, the REN for this product is part of the product identifier that has the format
US: AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal point (e.g. 03 is a REN of
0.3). For earlier products, the REN is separately shown on the label.
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone company will notify you in advance that
temporary discontinuance of service may be required. But if advance notice is not practical, the telephone company
will notify the customer as soon as possible. Also, you will be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC
if you believe it is necessary.
The telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect
the operations of the equipment. If this happens, the telephone company will provide advance notice in order for you
to make the necessary modifications in order to maintain uninterrupted service.
