Billion 7800N Cabling Setup
Figure 1: Typical connection of a Billion 7800N router for ADSL
Connection of your modem will vary depending on whether you have a Standard or Naked ADSL service.
- Connect a phone cable from the Line or Wall Socket port on the ADSL splitter to the telephone socket on your wall.
- Connect a phone cable from the ADSL Modem port on the splitter to the DSL port on the back of the Billion router.
NOTE: Make sure that your cable is less than 3 metres long. Long cables can affect the performance of your service.
- Connect your telephone to the Local Phone port on the ADSL splitter.
- Connect one end of the supplied Ethernet cable to the network card on your computer. Connect the other end to one of the Ethernet or LAN ports on the back of the router.
NOTE: Only connect to Ethernet ports 1, 2, 3, or 4. Do not use the EWAN port in this type of setup.
- Connect the power supply to the back of the router, and plug it into your 240v power outlet.
- Switch on the router.
