The Universal Serial Bus is a high speed bus that enables your computer to
communicate simultaneously with a variety of peripherals. If you have other
peripherals that send and receive a lot of information, such as speakers, printers or
scanners, we recommend using an Ethernet card to support this modem.
Mac Users: Neither Mac OS nor any other OS other than Windows 98SE, Me, 2000, or XP are
supported currently for USB installation. Please use the Ethernet connection.

Connect one end of the coaxial cable to the cable connection in the wall, and the other end to the
connector on the modem labeled CABLE.
2. a. Insert the plug from the AC power supply into the power AC jack labeled 9VDC 800mA on the
