How do I setup my ASUS RT-AC58U router?

1. Connecting my router

1.1. Plug in the router

Connect the included Black Ethernet cable to the Blue "Internet" port on right and the power plug to the power port on the left, Any computers or devices you wish to connect via Ethernet can be connected using any of the Yellow Ethernet ports on the back of the Router.

1.2. Plug in the Optical Network Terminal (ONT)

Connect the other end of the ethernet cable to the GE1 or LAN1 socket on the ONT (Fibre box on the wall) unless advied otherwise.

1.3. Make sure both the ONT and Router are on

Ensure both the ONT and ASUS Router are powered on, If not ensure the ONT is powered on first and allowed to fully start (Wait until you get Power and Optical/PON) lights before switching on the ASUS Router.

Ensure the lights on the top of the router match the picture below, If not switch off both the ONT and the ASUS Router for 5 minutes switch on the ONT first and allow it to fully start (Wait until you get Power and Optical/PON lights) before switching on the ASUS Router.

IMPORTANT: If the internet light (circled in red above) does not come on even after restarting both devices as shown above, please try plugging in the ethernet into each of the other GE or LAN ports on the ONT device following the same steps. If this doesn't work please raise a ticket or chat via our website with us to correct this issue.
