Hi,

Connecting a SmartAX MT880 to your PC is straight forward.
1. Connect your ADSL line from the telephone line splitter to the rear of the modem marked ADSL;
2. use the provided straight-through Ethernet cable and connect one end to the Ethernet port of the mode, connect the other end to the LAN port of your PC;
3. connect the provided 9VAC adapter to the wall outlet and the plug to to the jack marked 9V AC 1A;
4. power up the modem by switching it on using the rear panel power switch;
5. on switching on the modem, the Power led indicator in the front panel should lit up;
6. the ADSL Link & Act leds should blink while negotiating with your provider. Upon connection, the Link led should have a steady light and the Act will blink when you are uploading or downloading;
7. on the LAN leds, the Link should have a steady light if connected to your PC. The Act led will blink if your PC is sending or receiving from the Internet through the modem.
8. Prerequisites are: an active 2-wire/telephone ADSL account, LAN card in your PC, appropriate Operating System, and all the accessories that came with the box of the modem.

Should you be in need of a copy of the manual, it is available here. Upon download, pls add ".pdf" to file name to be viewable in Abobe Acrobat reader.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello, Good question..Phone line to DSL modem, Ethernet cable to WAN port on Router. If connecting a PC wired to Router, connect Ethernet cable from 1 of 4 LAN ports on Back of router to ethernet port on PC. This would be Physical connection...
It's always smart to set a restore point in case something goes wrong during installation of any program. For wireless connection from laptop or PC: install router software on computer. Reboot computer. In browser address bar enter 192.168.1.1. This brings up a window for user name and password. Enter "admin" for both. This allows you to change many settings including Changing SSID(Router Name), User name and password. Enabling WEP or WPA security. Hope this Helps, Good Luck..!!

I need to set this router up. I don't know how to make the connection secure with a password. I am not technically savvy, so if you could "Dummy it down" I'd appreciate it.


You are tying to set up the router .
It is very easy !
first make sure that your main computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the modem, without the router.
Once you are able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working. you can set up the router manually.

How to configure Huwaei MT880 with linksys WRT120N router?


Try these steps:
  1. Shut down the DSL/Cable modem
  1. Power up the router (no cables just yet).
  1. Power up the modem and wait for the appropriate lights (power, ethernet, and activity – something along these lines)
  1. Connect the modem and router with an ethernet cable (if there is a WAN port on the router make sure to put the cable in this port).
  1. Connect Port 1 on the router to the network card on the computer using an ethernet cable and check to see there is a light at the correct port.
  1. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Input your routers id (usually an IP address or an URL) in the browsers address bar and press Enter. The address bar is where you would normally see, for example, http://www.google.ca If you don't know the IP address (such as 192.168.1.1) or the URL, try going to the manufacturers web site and downloading a manual.
  1. Now, a window will open asking for a user name and password (these are given to you in the instructions of the router). For example, Dlink sets up some of their routers as, username: admin and leave the password field blank then press OK.
  1. Now you are in the configuration page of your router (wireless most probably). Here you can set the encryption, new passwords etc… If your not comfortable doing these on your own most routers have a wizard that you can follow.
  1. If everything goes alright and the settings are successful you can now try the wireless connection. Go to a machine with a wireless card, right
  1. At the computer with the wireless connection, make sure the connection is on You might be trying to connect to the network by using either the application that came with the router or windows wireless configuration. Right click the icon in the system tray and “view available networks”. If it comes up in a window saying “Windows is not setup for wireless networks” then you must right click on the correct icon in the tray.
  2. Now, in the list of available networks, click on the name of your network Click on "connect" and it should ask for your security id (the encryption code). Put in the code (usually twice) and click connect or OK. It should now be "acquiring anip address" and in a few minutes it should be connected.

With a DSL modem in the US, you need to confiugre the router for PPPOE with the username/password that was provided to you by your ISP. If you can't remember the name or password, contact your ISP

Trying to turn a Linksys WRT54GS into a hub


  1. If you want to set the router to work only as a switch with wireless access point, you may need to get into its setup page and adjust some settings.
  2. Using a computer that is wired directly to one of the router's Ethernet ports, launch IE and type 192.168.1.1. It is the default IP address of the router. Then it will open a window, asking for a username and password. By default, there is no username and the password is admin.
  3. Once you're in the router's User Interface, look for a sub tab called "Advanced Routing" under the main tab SETUP. Then set router mode to "Router" instead of Gateway. In some router's, the choice there is NAT enable or disable. If it is the one showing there instead of Router mode, then set NAT to disable. Click Save settings which is located at the bottom portion of the screen.
  4. Then click on "Basic Setup" and then disable DHCP server. Save the settings then.
  5. Then your modem now will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router.
Hope this helps!
