  1. Turn off the SPTC SmartRG/Clear Access gateway.
  2. Turn off your router (if applicable).
  3. Shut down your computer.
  4. Important…Check your telephone line for dial tone or noise.  If there is no dial tone or there is noise on the line, call the service department at 800-692-4057. If you have dial tone on your telephone line, proceed to step 5.
  5. Turn on the SmartRG/Clear Access modem and wait 5 minutes. The POWER light should come on, then the DSL or WAN light, then a blinking Tx/Rx or Internet light (showing you’re transmitting/receiving).
