How To Connect


Connecting to the Internet can be done in a few ways:

 

Watch this setup video for simple instructions on how you can connect to our ultra-fast fiber internet via WiFi router or to your device directly.


 
1

Connect Directly with a Wired Connection

In your apartment/home, you will see one of these three methods of connection. Follow the instructions based on what you see in your living room, hall closet or utility closet.

A: Connecting to the Wall Ethernet Port

Required parts: Ethernet cable, device with an ethernet port.
 
  1. Plug one end of the ethernet cable into the wall Internet port on your wall plate in your apartment.
  2. Plug the other end of the cable into the ethernet port located on your device (laptop, gaming console, etc.)

 

B: Connecting to the Nokia Gateway

 
  1. There will be a device on your living room wall as pictured. Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port attached to it.
  2. Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on your device.
With this connection type, if you want WiFi throughout your whole apartment, you will need your own WiFi router to connect to WiFi (see option 2B).
 

 

C: Connecting to the Nokia WiFi Gateway

  1. Plug in one end of an Ethernet cable into one of the yellow ports on the Nokia WiFi Gateway located on the wall in your living room.
  2. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your device.
With this connection type, you will not need your own WiFi router to connect to WiFi. A unique SSID will be created for you (see option 4).

Cross Connect

 

Cross Connect

First, you need to find your multi-colored panel which is typically located in the living room, hall closet or utility closet. Once you have located this panel, notice the different colors on the wall plate. These colors represent each room.
The blue port is the active Internet port. One end of your ethernet cable should always be connected to this port. The other end of the cable can be used in two ways: (1) connected to a wireless router to access WiFi, or (2) connected to the colored port representing which room you’d like active Internet in, for a fast, direct connection.
