Setting up your hub

1. Connect

  • if possible, place your Hub on a table or shelf and avoid thick materials (such as carpets), windows or electricalappliances like TVs, microwaves or baby monitors
  • plug the broadband cable with the grey ends into your Hub and the other end into your master phone socket
  • a master socket is the main socket for the phone line in your home – it’s not an extension socket
  • depending on your socket type, you might need to use a filter

 2. Plug in power

  • slide the two parts of the Hub’s power plug together until they click into place
  • connect the power cable to your Hub, plug it into the wall socket and switch on

 3. Turn your Hub on

  • press the power button on the back of the Hub
  • the light on the front will change colours while your Hub sets itself up – this takes a few minutes

4. You're online

  • your Hub is ready when the light turns steady aqua
  • if it isn’t steady aqua, see Troubleshooting
