ADSL IN SPAIN: ROUTER SET-UP GUIDE

 

The self installing router is simple to set-up. You do not need to use the CD supplied and if your PC/Laptop has a working (switched on) wireless network card, it will pick up the wireless (WIFI) connection once the router has been installed correctly, as instructed below:

Before you begin, check your ADSL broadband connection is active (if unsure, please check with Customer Services 1004), then use the following simple steps to get online. We would suggest you have everything you need to hand including your Ethernet phone line cable and the power supply. You may also need your broadband user name and password that would have been supplied in a confirmation letter after your ADSL was activated:

 

NOTE: The password (clave) to access the service can be found on the label on your router. 

 

Installing Microfilters:
Microfilters are very important to the broadband install process. Microfilters separate the broadband signal and telephone calls from each other. If you do not install microfilters, your internet connection will experience problems with connections and speed. Your telephone will also have a high pitched squeal, if microfilters are not used on every phone socket where a phone is attached.
To attach your filter, please carryout the following steps:


1. Remove your telephone from the master socket

2. Plug the phone line into the filter, the telephone should be placed in the socket marked 'TEL' or with an symbol depicting a telephone:

3. Plug the filter into the master socket, where the phone was removed from:

You have now successfully installed a micro filter, if you pick up your phone you should be able to hear a dial tone. If you do not hear a dial tone, you have connected the filter incorrectly.

Installing your router:
There are only a few steps to successfully install you router, however it is important to connect the supplied cables to the correct ports of the router.
1. Connect your thin grey/white cable to the filter, that you have already installed. The lead should connect to the port marked 'DSL' or with a computer symbol.

2. Connect the other end of the thin grey/white cable to the grey port on the back of the router.

3. The next part of the install requires your computer to be switched off. Turn your computer off now!


4. Plug the supplied Ethernet cable (normally yellow) into the router port marked 'Lan 1' or '1'

5. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer, this is normally marked

6. Connect the black power lead to the back of the router

7. Connect the power lead to the mains supply, make sure your computer remains switched off.

8. Your router will start to install automatically, this normally takes around 5 minutes. Once the power light is constant and no longer flashing you can continue the install.


9. Switch your computer on and wait for it to start. Once your computer has fully started, start and open a web browser such as 'Internet Explorer' or 'Firefox' by double clicking on the browser icon.


10. In the 'Address Bar' at the top of the screen, enter 'www.bbc.co.uk', for example, if the website opens...WELL DONE! you have successfully installed your broadband connection.
