This guide shows you how to set up a TP-Link TD-VG3631 for your OntheNet ADSL or Naked DSL service.

When to use this guide

All equipment that is supplied by OntheNet is pre-configured therefore in most cases you will only need to follow the first part of this guide to the connect the modem to your computer.

The other sections of this guide may be useful when:

  • You have performed a factory reset and need to completely reconfigure the device.
  • You have purchased the device from someone else and need to configure it for your OntheNet service.

1. Connect the modem/router to mains power with the supplied 12v power adaptor and switch the modem on. The power LED on the front of the modem should light up.

2. Using the grey Ethernet cable, connect one end into an Ethernet port of the modem/router (there are four from which to choose), and the other to the Ethernet/LAN port of your computer. The corresponding Ethernet LED on the front of the modem should light up.

3. For ADSL: Using the white phone cable, connect one end into the DSL port of the modem/router, and the other to the ADSL port of the line filter/splitter. Using your existing phone cable, connect one end into the phone port of the line filter/splitter and the other to the telephone. Connect the line filter/splitter to the wall socket.

4. For Naked DSL: Using the white phone cable, connect one end into the DSL port of the modem/router, and the other to the ADSL port of the wall socket (filter/splitter is not required).
