How do I set up my CenturyLink modem?
The process to set up a CenturyLink modem is pretty simple. Anyone with no or little technical knowledge can set up the CenturyLink modem. That’s why a large number of people could be seen describing CenturyLink as a self-install CenturyLink internet service. Before I tell you the steps to follow, it is worthwhile to learn what comes in the kit of the CenturyLink modem kit.
Your CenturyLink installation kit includes a number of things such as:
User manuals and warranty cards.
One black power cord.
A Green cord
One yellow Ethernet cable.
Important Note: While doing the unboxing of your CenturyLink modem kit, be careful. Make sure you don’t damage the warranty card and accessories that have come within the kit. Plus, check everything carefully, and if you find any dent or cut in and around the cords, immediately contact customer service and request for return or refund.
CenturyLink How to set up a modem?
As we are talking about how to set up the CenturyLink modem, it is important to take care of the location where you are going to place your CenturyLink modem. Just to be more precise, you need to ensure the least possible distance between the CenturyLink modem/router and device. The more distance means the slower the internet speed. For hassle-free and seamless internet connection, try to place your CenturyLink modem in the center of your home so you can get sufficient internet connection from all the corners of your home. Once you choose the best location for your CenturyLink modem follows these steps:
So, as a first step, connect one end of the power cord (black color cable) into your modem and plug the other end into the power outlet. Once you switch on the power, the power light will start blinking. In case the power light doesn’t lit up, it means there is something technically wrong with your device. Consider contacting the CenturyLink technician.
Now hold the green cord, put its one end into the DSL port available on the backside of the modem, and plug its another end into the working phone jack. Upon successfully connecting between the DSL cable and modem, the DSL light will turn on.
After that, plug the one end of the yellow Ethernet cord into the Ethernet port available at the backside of your CenturyLink modem and put the other end into the Ethernet port of your computer. Once you successfully connect the Ethernet cable, the Ethernet light will also start blinking.
As you have connected all the cables with their respective devices, now you are just one step away from activating the CenturyLink internet. All you need to do is just open the web browser on your computer and navigate to connect.centurylink.com.
Now have a look at the backside of your CenturyLink modem and find out the password and network name. Now simply enter the password and network name on the CenturyLink modem setup page. To add more computers to your CenturyLink modem, visit go.centurylink.com/addcomputer and follow the onscreen instructions.
How do I know if my CenturyLink internet service is activated?
If you follow all the steps correctly, your internet service will surely activate with ease of mind. And when internet service is activated, the status light available on the modem turns green. In other words, we can say that the green light is the signal of internet connectivity. On the other hand, if the amber light lit up then it means the setup procedure has not been completed. In the case of red light, it means the setup has failed or your internet connection is not available. In the event of the amber and red light, check all the connections, cables, and ports. If you find something odd then get in touch with CenturyLink customer service.
