HyperLink VZ Setting up your Gateway

HyperLink VZ Setting up your Gateway

There are three basic steps to setting up your Gateway:

  1. Step 1: Connect your Gateway to the Internet
  2. Step 2: Connect your network device to your Gateway
  3. Step 3: Configure your Gateway


STEP 1 - CONNECT YOUR GATEWAY

  1. Remove your Gateway, Ethernet cables, and power adapter from the box.
  2. Locate your high-speed Internet (WAN) outlet. This would be the wall jack installed previously by Verizon. Note the type of jack may be either Ethernet or coaxial.
  3. Connect your Gateway to the Internet (WAN).
  1. If connecting the WAN using Ethernet, use the supplied white Ethernet cable and plug one end into the white Ethernet WAN port on the back of your Gateway. Plug the other end of the cable into the high-speed Ethernet wall jack. 
  2. If connecting the WAN using coaxial cable, locate a coaxial cable and connect one end to the coax port on the back of your Gateway. Connect the other end of the coaxial cable to a coax wall jack. Tighten the coaxial cables by hand until snug. The cables should not require a wrench.
  1. Plug the power cord into the power port on the back of your Gateway and then into a power outlet. The Gateway automatically turns on as soon as power is plugged in. Important: Wait until the Power/Internet light on the front of the Gateway stops flashing and is solid white. If the light turns red, check the trouble-shooting steps in the Troubleshooting section of the user guide.

STEP 2 - Connect your network device to your Gateway

Connecting a device using wired Ethernet (preferred for initial setup):

  1. Plug one end of the supplied yellow Ethernet cable into one of the four yellow Ethernet ports in the back of your Gateway. Alternatively, you can use your own Ethernet cable of any color to connect from the yellow Ethernet ports on the back of your Gateway to your device with an Ethernet connector.
  2. Plug the other end of the yellow Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port of your network device. If connecting a wireless device:
  3. Access the Wi-Fi setting on your wireless device, then select your new Gateway using the wireless network name (ESSID) shown on the sticker located on the side of your Gateway.
  4. Enter the wireless password (WPA2 key) also shown on the Sticker.



STEP 3 - CONFIGURE YOUR GATEWAY:

  1. Open a web browser on the device connected to your Gateway network.
  2. In the browser address field (URL), enter: myfiosgateway.com, then press the Enter key on your keyboard.



Alternately, you can enter: https://192.168.1.1/ The first time you access your Gateway, an Easy Setup Wizard displays to help step you through the setup process.


Note: Some setup images may vary depending on your configuration.

  1. In the Admin Password field, enter the password that is printed next to the Administrator Password on the label on the side of your Gateway. 



Note: Image may vary depending on your configuration.


  1. Click Next. The Personalize Your Wi-Fi Settings screen displays. Click on the check box next to Setup your Guest Wi-Fi (Optional) to personalize your  Guest Wi-Fi Name and Password.


Note: Image may vary depending on your configuration.

For your protection, your Gateway is pre-set at the factory to use WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access) encryption for your wireless network. This is the best setting for most users and provides maximum security.

  1. Click Continue. The Apply to Save Your Wi-Fi Settings screen appears. You have an option of saving the Wi-Fi settings as an image on your device by clicking the Save as Picture button. After you click Save as Picture to save your Wi-Fi settings as an image, click Apply to save the Wi-Fi changes to your Gateway.

Important: If you are on a Wi-Fi device when setting up your Gateway, you will be disconnected from the Wi-Fi network when you change the Wi-Fi name or Wi-Fi password. When this occurs, your Gateway will detect this situation and prompt you to reconnect using the new settings.

The Congratulations! You’re All Set Up screen displays once your Gateway verifies the final settings and has successfully connected to the Internet and is ready for use. You can click on Main Router Settings to access the Main screen of the Gateway or click on Start Browsing and you will be directed to the Verizon.com website.



If your Gateway is subsequently reset to the factory default settings, the settings printed on the label will again be in effect. If your Gateway fails to connect, follow the troubleshooting steps in the Troubleshooting article.
