Good Day Tommy,

How to set up your Fibre router

Please follow the steps below to set up your Fibre router.

Once the CPE box is installed in your home:

  1. Connect the ethernet cable from LAN Port 1 on the CPE/ONT device (the device that has been mounted on the wall) into the WAN/Internet port on your Afrihost fibre router. Ensure CPE is powered up and lights are showing on the device.
  2. Then connect a LAN/ Ethernet cable from a WAN port on your fibre router to your computer OR connect wirelessly to the router's network (the 2.5 GHz or 5 GHz one) and the password will be written on a sticker underneath it.
  3. The ethernet ‘LINK’ light must show on the CPE and the WAN port of your router. If the link light is present, it means that your fibre router is powered up correctly.
  4. You will then be able to connect to the internet at 10Mbps for 2 hours in order to activate your fibre account.

Activate your Fibre account

Once connected to the CPE you need to activate your account.
