The Billion 7800N sold by Internode is delivered fully configured: including your ADSL username, password, and all Internode-specific settings. If you've just received your Billion router from Internode, simply follow the first section to complete the cabling setup.
If you would like to confirm the details in your router, have purchased your router elsewhere, or if you've performed a factory reset, you may also need to follow through the rest of the guide.
Billion 7800N Cabling Setup
Connection of your modem will vary depending on whether you have a Standard ADSL or a Naked ADSL service.
Figure 1: Typical connection of a Billion 7800N router for ADSL
- 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: Ensure 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.
NOTE: All devices connected to the ADSL line on any socket in the premises also need to be connected to an ADSL filter.
NOTE: If you do not intend to use a phone on the same socket as the router, simply connect the router directly to the telephone socket without incorporating 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.
If you purchased your Billion router from Internode, your service should be ready to use. If you intend to use the wireless functions, please refer to the Billion 7800N Wireless Guide.
