Summary

Learn about the available ports and an explanation of the status lights on a Zoom 5350 Cable Modem / Router .

Solution



For the Zoom 5350, connect the cable modem / router to a cable modem service that uses any of the popular DOCSIS standards - 3.0, 2.0, or 1.1.
 

Front View

Allow 5 to 30 minutes to power up the first time because the cable modem / router must locate and connect to the appropriate channels for communication. The DS (downstream), US (upstream), and / or Online modem lights will flash until the Online light stays steady green to signal success. If they are not, refer to the Modem Lights section or Zoom Quick Start Brochure.

  • GE 1-4 (Gigabit Ethernet 1-4 also known as LAN 1-4) - Four 10/100/1000 auto-sensing RJ-45 ports. Connect devices on your LAN (Local Area Network) such as a computer, hub or switch to these ports.
  • USB - Connects to the USB port on your computer.
  • RESET - Use this button in the unlikely event that you want to restore the default factory settings. This button is recessed to prevent accidental resets of your cable modem/router.
