1. Prepare for Installation

NOTE: It is very important that you have your serial number written down for future reference. If you ever need to call our Technical Support department, you will need this number to receive assistance. You can find your serial number on a bar code sticker on the modem and also on the box.

Make sure that your PC is on and that you have your operating system CD-ROM readily available.
