Getting set up

First you'll need to find your main phone socket. This is the main phone socket in your home - it’s usually a little larger than a normal phone socket and often has a horizontal line in the middle. There are two types of main phone socket:

 

Standard main phone socket

Standard main phone sockets have one port on the front, which means you need a microfilter to connect your phone or Wi-Fi Hub. You'll also need to use microfilters in every other socket you're using in your home.

Pre-filtered main phone socket

Pre-filtered main phone sockets have two ports on the front, which means your line is already split between your phone and broadband connection. You can plug your phone and Wi-Fi Hub straight into a pre-filtered main phone socket without using any microfilters.

Connect your Wi-Fi Hub

The way you set up your Wi-Fi Hub depends on which main phone socket you have. Choose yours from the options below.

      1. Plug the microfilter with the broadband cable attached into the main phone socket

Using a wired connection

To use a wired connection, simply plug the Ethernet cable into your device. Then plug the other end into any of the yellow Ethernet ports on the back of your Wi-Fi Hub.

The light on the front of your Wi-Fi Hub will change colour depending on the status of your connection. 

 

Front of Wi-Fi Hub

  1. Blinking amber – Your Wi-Fi Hub is starting up.
  2. Blinking amber and white – Your Wi-Fi Hub is connecting to the Internet.
  3. Solid white – You’re connected to the Internet.
  4. Solid amber – Your Wi-Fi Hub is verifying your connection. If you’ve got Fibre you should wait a few minutes. If you haven’t got Fibre, or the light stays solid amber for more than 15 minutes, please contact us.

 

Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) lets you easily connect network equipment like wireless printers to your router. Instead of manually typing in your Wi-Fi password, you simply press the WPS button on your Wi-Fi Hub to connect your device. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Follow the instructions that came with your device about connecting using WPS.
  2. Press the WPS button on the back of your Wi-Fi Hub until the light on the front of your Wi-Fi Hub starts flashing amber.
  3. When your device has connected to your Wi-Fi Hub, the light will turn solid white.
  4. If the connection fails, the light will flash amber again before returning to solid white.
  5. Wait until the light turns solid white and then try to connect again.

 

If you've got UFO or Fibre 150/250, your setup will be a little different from the above. Here's how to set up your Wi-Fi Hub if you have UFO or Fibre 150/250.
