Use the step-by-step instructions below to configure your hardware for TOAST.net DSL.
Step 1: Attach DSL Filters Attach filters to every device that uses telephone service such as telephones, fax machines, answering machines, alarm systems and/or satellite receivers. Repeat these steps for each device in your house. All jacks used for voice communication need a filter. (Do NOT filter the DSL modem).
- Unplug the telephone or device from the phone jack.
- Plug the DSL filter into phone jack.
- Plug the telephone or device into the open port on the DSL filter.
Optional: Dual Filter
If you want to use a single wall jack for DSL
traffic and for voice calls, you can use a dual
filter to convert one wall jack into two jacks.
Plug the DSL modem into the "DSL" port and
the telephone device into the "Phone" port.
Optional: Wall-Mount Filter
Remove the phone (by sliding it off the mount.)
Install the filter (it slides on like the phone.)
Re-seat the phone over the wall-mount as before.
Step 2: Connect DSL Modem
Connect cables to DSL Modem.
- Connect a phone line from an available unfiltered jack to the DSL modem's ADSL phone jack. Remember: (Do NOT filter the DSL modem).
- Connect the DSL modem to your computer's Ethernet jack using a network cable.
Step 3: Configure Software
Uninstall Dialup software
If you previously had dialup software installed on your computer such as dialers or acceleration software, uninstall these applications through your computer's Add/Remove Programs Menu. This can be found in the Control Panel.
