The phone company can take it out for you and put in DSL, you can do it your self if you know what to do. I would take it out and go to home depo and get the dsl parts and wire, you need to have a lot to run thou the walls. The phone company maybe your best way, if you have any friends that know anything about running dsl wire this would be your cheepest way out.

I have one of these devices - it was installed by the cable company (Charter) as part of the equipment that lets charter carry my phone service. It is a battery backup for the line so that when power goes out you dont lose your telephone. Your regular phone wires dont require external electricity to work, but cable companies do. And people like being able to make a phone call to report a power outage for example.

If you dont use your cable company as your local telephone provider, you should be fine removing it.

How do I download the manual?

There appears to be no manual for this product, only the "User Guide" that was included in the packaging. If you've misplaced it you might be able to contact Antec directly - but they do not offer downloads from their website.

Where can I find power supply for HP model ATX300-12ZBD

There are lots of ATX power supplies on the market. You do not need to use a HP 300 watt power supply. Just purchase one that suit your requirements - 300 watt or more. These power supplies have standard mounting holes.

I agree with you about the power supply being faulty. Unfortunately FixYa is not affiliated with Antec nor sells or service any computer components.
You need to contact the supplier who sold you the power supply or contact Antec.

Need information

The Back-UPS is fairly straight-forward. The 9-pin connector (at the top of the back) is a serial port (RS-232) for the UPS data (when connected to a computer it will shut down the computer safely during a power outage). The next plugs are RJ-11 telephone jacks; the cord from the jack (wall) goes in on the left (some models have RJ-45 for network protection). The battery protected outlets are the three surrounded by black paint. The other three provide surge-protection only. Do not plug items like printers and scanners into the outlets that provide battery protection.

I hope this helps.

I need to know what the modular cable is that goes between the main unit and the batteries on a Matrix 5000. Is it simply a cross-over mini-RJ11 (handset connector) cable?

ccowl, APC has a great website. Have you tried it yet? The knowledge base they have on their products is huge. The cable you are speaking of may just be for monitoring battery voltage status, but that is only a guess. The interconnect cable could be a proprietary APC cable and only APC knows how it is wired "end to end" !!! 12fixlouie
