NOTE! Before you begin, we recommend you uninstall any other modems you have in your system. Refer to your previous modem's documentation for instructions.
Write down your new U.S. Robotics modem's serial number, which is located on the white bar code sticker on the modem and on the modem's box. If you ever need to call our Technical Support department, you will need this number to receive assistance.
Step 2: Connect the modem to the computer.
Shut down your computer and connect the serial modem cable to the modem and the computer.
Step 3: Connect the modem to an analogue phone line.
Plug one end of the provided phone cord into the jack on the modem and plug the other end into an analogue phone wall jack.
WARNING: The phone socket you use must be for an ANALOGUE phone line. Most office phones are wired through DIGITAL lines. Be sure you know what type of line you have. The modem will be damaged if you use a digital phone line.
Step 4: Plug in the modem's power supply.
Plug the power supply into the jack on the modem and the other end into an electrical outlet. Turn on the modem. The power button (labelled on the modem's underside) is located on the side of the modem.
