1) When you opened your box, the HUB was probably the first thing that caught your eye. The HUB comes in two parts. The first part is the main body of the device itself, the second part is the stand. If you want to mount your HUB on a wall, the stand can be stored for later, if you want your HUB to stand on a table top, simply insert the stand into the bottom of the HUB.
2) Step 2 is making all of the connections. Your kit came with an Ethernet cable and a power cable for your HUB. Locate these cables and make the connections as follows.
A) Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the WAN port on your HUB, and the other end to and available LAN port on your home router or modem.
B) Connect the power adapter to the HUB, and plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Once all of your connections are made, your hub should begin to light up. When the power LED (bottom light) turns green and the connectivity light (2nd from bottom) begins to flash amber(yellowish/orange), you’re ready to begin the activation process. If your hub does not light up correctly, reboot your home network and confirm that you have a good broadband connection. You can find some helpful broadband troubleshooting tips in the 'Rebooting Your Home Network' article below.
Power off all networking equipment, including the HUB, any personal router, and your cable modem, or device providing your internet connection.
Power up ONLY the first device(the device that provides your internet connection, i.e. cable modem) and allow it to come completely back online. With a computer connected to the device that you just powered on, verify that you have an internet connection. If you do not, contact your internet provider. If you do, continue to the next step.
Once the first device is restored, power up the next device(device that is connected to the first device via ethernet cable). If this is your HUB proceed to the next step. If it is a different device, power that device up and verify that is connects to the internet.
The LEDs on the HUB give you an at a glance overview of what's happening with your system at that time. They also provide critical troubleshooting information. Familiarizing yourself with the LEDs will allow you to identify potential issues with your system quicker.
