ADSL router setup


The self installing router is simple to set-up. You do not need to use the CD supplied and if your PC/Laptop has a working (switched on) wireless network card, it will pick up the wireless (WiFi) connection once the router has been installed correctly.

Before beginning the installation, check that your ADSL broadband connection is active (if unsure, please check with Customer Service 1004). Make sure that you have everything you need: Ethernet phone line cable and the power supply (see picture). You may also need thebroadband user name and password that are supplied in a confirmation letter after your ADSL was activated:

NOTE: The password (clave) to access the WiFi service can be found on the label on your router.


Installing Microfilters:

Microfilters separate the broadband signal and telephone calls from each other. If you do not install microfilters, your internet connection will experience problems with connections and speed. Your telephone will also have a high pitched squeal, if microfilters are not used on every phone socket where a phone is connected.

To attach your filter, please carryout the following 3-steps:

  1. Remove your telephone from the master socket
  2. Plug the phone line into the filter, the telephone should be placed in the socket marked ‘TEL‘ or with an symbol depicting a telephone (see image):
  3. Plug the filter into the master socket, where the phone was removed from.

Voila! A successfully installed a microfilter. If you pick up your phone you should be able to hear a dial tone.

If you do not hear a dial tone, you have connected the filter incorrectly.

Installing your router:

There are 2 ways to install you router, with an Ethernet cable (normally yellow) or via WiFi (wireless) network.

First,  however, it is important to connect the supplied cables to the correct ports of the router.


  1. Connect your thin grey/white cable to the filter, that you have already installed. The lead should connect to the port marked ‘ADSL‘ or with a computer symbol.
  2. Connect the other end of the thin grey/white cable to the grey port on the back of the router.

To switch on the router.


Connect the power lead into the back of the router and the plug in a socket (Do not connect anything to your computer yet!). Push the button at back of the router to the ON position. Wait a few minutes (up to five) for flashing green LED lights to turn constant.


*Movistar can make a remote update of your equipment to offer you a better service, especially in the initial installation. During this update process the power indicator (the first one from the left) will flash in red.


Warning: Do not turn off your Home Station ADSL while it is upgrading because it could damage your equipment.

If you using an external wireless device (PCM, CIA or USB adapter) and haven’t done so, install it now with the aid of the CD that comes with it. If you already  have a wireless device integrated into your equipment, make sure that it is enabled with the aid of your operating system (Windows / Apple).
