Paradyne

These detailed instructions will guide you through the installation of the Broadband Paradyne DSL Modem.

If you are running Windows 95, Windows 98/98SE or Windows ME, you may need your Windows installation CD. Please have it available, as Windows may need to copy some system files from it in order to complete the following steps.

Before installing your modem, plug the AC adapter, included with the modem, into an available wall outlet. DO NOT connect the adapter to the DSL modem at this time.

We will now connect the Paradyne DSL modem to your computer. There are two different ways for you to connect your DSL modem to your computer. Select one of the two methods, and then follow the corresponding instructions below to complete the installation.

Method #1: Connecting the Modem to Your PC or Macintosh Using Ethernet.
Method #2: Connecting the Modem to Your PC Using USB.

Most often, the easiest way to connect your computer to the High-speed Paradyne DSL Modem is by using your computer's Ethernet port. Any of the two methods mentioned above can be used however.

Method #1: Connecting the Modem to Your PC or Macintosh Using Ethernet

This method is compatible with any PC which is running Windows 95 or later, as well as any Macintosh computer running System 8.6.1 or later.

To use this method, you must have a functional Ethernet port on your system. An Ethernet port is provided via a Network Interface Card (NIC) and is usually included with many newer personal computers.

Make sure your computer is OFF before proceeding.

Let's Begin:

1. Connect one end of the DSL line to the High-speed Paradyne DSL Modem's "LINE" jack. Connect the other end of the DSL line to the DSL line wall outlet. Make certain that the plug snaps into the socket on each device and cannot be removed without depressing the clip on the connector.

2. Plug the AC adapter cable into the appropriate jack on the back of the modem.

3. Plug the Ethernet cable into the front of the High-speed Paradyne DSL Modem and plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer. Make certain that the plug snaps into the socket on each device and cannot be removed without depressing the clip on the connector.

4. Turn on your computer and allow your system to start up normally.

5. After your system has finished loading, the "power" and "Xfer/Status" lights should be lit or flashing on your High-speed Paradyne DSL Modem.

For customers using Windows 95, 98/98SE, ME, and 2000 you will now need to install the necessary software to connect to the Internet. Detailed instructions on the installation of WinPoET software.

Note: For customers using Windows 95 you will be required to update Dial-Up Networking to version 1.3. Please visit Microsoft's Download Section.

For customers using Macintosh 8.6.1 to 9.X you will now need to install the necessary software to connect to the Internet. Detailed instructions on the installation of MacPoET software.

For customers using Windows XP please click here for detailed instructions on configuring your PPPoE connection.

For customers using Macintosh OSX please click here for instructions on configuring your PPPoE connection.

If you cannot access the Internet after completing the above steps or your "Xfer/Status" light is not lit or flashing, please make sure that your Ethernet card is properly installed. If the "Xfer/Status" light is still not lit, try switching the ends of the Ethernet cable, or try a different Ethernet cable. PenTeleData Technical Support can not offer assistance with 3rd-party Ethernet cards.

 

Method #2: Connecting the Modem to Your PC Using USB

 This method is not compatible with Windows 95 or Macintosh operating systems.

Make sure your computer is OFF before proceeding.

Let's Begin
1. Connect one end of the DSL line to the High-speed Paradyne DSL Modem's "LINE" jack. Connect the other end of the DSL line to the DSL line wall outlet. Make certain that the plug snaps into the socket on each device and cannot be removed without depressing the clip on the connector.

2. Plug the AC adapter cable into the appropriate jack on the back of the modem.

3. Plug the USB cable into the front of the High-speed Paradyne DSL Modem and plug the other end of the USB cable into the USB port on your computer.

4. Turn on your computer and allow your system to start up normally.

It is now necessary to install the specific USB driver for your particular version of Windows.

Once Internet Explorer is open, you can then go to other websites by typing them into the bar labeled "Address" at the top of the Edge window (e.g. www.ptd.net).
