Good Day,

Once connected to the CPE, you will automatically be redirected to the Fibre Activation page to activate your account,

If not, visit the activation page(https://clientzone.afrihost.com/fibre-activate/#/).

Once activated, do the following to set up your router:

* At the top of your Internet browser type 192.168.0.1 and press enter.

* It will ask for a username which will be 'admin' and leave the password field empty and then click 'Login'

* Click 'Internet' and then 'Internet Connection Setup Wizard'

* It will say 'Welcome to the D-Link Internet Connection Setup Wizard'

- just click 'Next'

* Set any password you want (this will be the one to login to your router's menu) and then click 'Next'

* Set the Timezone as 'GMT : 02:00 Harare, Pretoria' and click 'Next'

* Choose 'Username / Password Connection (PPPoE)' and click 'Next' and then enter your Afrihost ones below.

Username: xxxxxx@afrihost.co.za

Password: XXXXXXX

*Finally click on the 'Connect' button and you should be online in about 2 hours as the system then updates.

- As a side note if you wish to change your wireless network settings please see below:

* On the routers main page click 'Wireless settings' and then 'Wireless Connection Setup'

* Under the Network Name (SSID) change the name(s) to whatever you want it to be.

* Also make sure you choose 'Manually Assign a Network Key' and click 'Next'

* Make up any password you want for your network under 'Wireless Security Password' and click 'Next'

* It will then take you to a summary page and just click 'Save' The settings will take a short while to save and then you will be connected
