This chapter describes the proper steps for connecting your cable modem. Please be sure to follow the steps in the sequence outlined below. Failure to do so could result in improper operation or failure of your cable modem.
Please be reminded this product CGA0101 is designed to stand in vertical position in order to keep the ventilation as clear as possible. Please do not put it down horizontally.
Step 1: Connect a cable by feeding the F-connector on the back of the cable modem. Ensure the center conductor of the 75 ohm coaxial cable is inserted directly into the center of the F-connector. Secure the coaxial cable by carefully threading the outer shell of the coaxial cable connector onto the F-connector in a clockwise direction until tight. Be careful not to over-tighten the connector or you may damage either the connector or the cable modem.
Step 2: Connect the cable modem to IEEE 802.3 10Base-T / 802.3u 100Base-TX / 802.3ab 1000Base-T Network using a RJ-45 male-terminated Ethernet cable. This cable modem equips with two Ethernet ports, you can connect two PCs to the cable modem at the same time if necessary.
Step 3: Connect the telephone sets to TEL. Use RJ-11 telephone line to connect TEL port on the cable modem and telephone socket on telephone
Step 4: Connect the AC Adapter to the cable modem by inserting the barrel-shaped connector into the mating power connector on the back of the cable modem. Exercise carefully to ensure the connectors are properly aligned prior to insertion and ensure the two connectors engage completely. The cable modem is shipped with an AC adapter. Remember to use only power adapter that came with the cable modem. Other power adapters might have voltages that are not correct for your particular cable
modem. Using a power adapter with the wrong voltage can damage the cable modem.
Step 5: Adjust the antenna if necessary.
Step 6:The screen of the coaxial cable is intended to be connected to earth in the building installation.

Federal Communication Commission Interference Statement
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 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.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
FCC Caution: Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate this equipment.
