  6. Fit one of your new broadband filters to your phone socket
  7. We suggest using your main telephone socket for a better broadband speed. Try to avoid using an extension line or socket
  8. Connect the broadband cable into the broadband filter

    connect the filter to your BT socket

  9. You'll also need to plug each piece of telephone equipment connected to your line into a broadband filter. This includes sockets for:

    - Telephones
    - TV services e.g. Sky
    - Answer phones
    - Faxes
    - Alarm systems - you might need to talk to an alarm engineer about this

It'll take a couple of minutes for your Livebox to start up. Just enough time to make yourself a cuppa.

Connect computer to Livebox

Ideally, connect your computer to your Livebox using a wired connection. You can always set up a wireless connection later.

  1. Plug one end of your Ethernet cable into the red socket on the side of your Livebox
