How to Self-Install Your ONT
The ONT (optical network terminal) converts fiber’s optical light signal so your PC and router can use it. Please follow these instructions to self-install your ONT with MPW’s internet service.
Step 1: Turn your ONT over.
Step 2: Slide the cover located in the corner of the bottom of the ONT off.
Step 3: Remove the black cap from the green receptacle.
Step 4: Locate the fiber “jumper”. Note the ridge on the plug. IMPORTANT!! DO NOT POINT THE LIGHTED END AT YOURSELF – IT’S A LASER!
Step 5: Insert the jumper plug with ridge, facing down. Push it until it snaps in place.
Step 6: Replace the cover.
Step 7: Plug one end of the ethernet cable into ETH1.
Step 8: Plug the other end of the ethernet cable into your PC or router.
Step 9: Connect the adapter, then plug it into an outlet and turn the ONT power ON.
Step 10: Finally, AFTER you complete these steps or if you’re experiencing issues with set-up, call our HelpDesk at 563-263-2631, then press 2.
