The Adtran SDG 854-v6 router provides additional Ethernet connections for customers using a fibre-optic modem. This is normally set up by a technician while installing the modem, but if you’re replacing your router or need to complete the setup after the technician has left, follow the steps below.

Installing an Adtran router with a new fibre-optic modem

Follow the steps below once the modem is online.

  1. Connect the provided Ethernet cable from the 1G LAN port on the modem to the WAN port (red) on the router.
  2. Connect one end of the power cord to the router and the other end to an active power outlet.
    • Note that it can take up to 20 minutes for the router to come online.
    • The WAN, 2.4GHz and 5GHz lights on the back of the router will turn green when the connection is complete and then flash when transferring data.
  3. Download the Cogeco Wi-Fi app on your mobile device (iOS App Store or Google Play).
  4. Log in using your My Account credentials and follow the instructions within the app to activate and manage your Wi-Fi network.

Replacing an Adtran router

  1. Disconnect your existing router and package it for return (make sure to follow our return instructions to avoid unnecessary charges).
  2. Connect the new router using the same outlets and ports.
    • Note that it can take up to 20 minutes for the router to come online.
    • The WAN, 2.4GHz and 5GHz lights on the back of the router will turn green when the connection is complete and then flash when transferring data.

Adding an Adtran router to your fibre-optic Modem

If your fibre-optic modem was installed previously and you’re now adding an Adtran router, follow the steps below:

  1. If you have a Cogeco Wi-Fi Pod or another router connected to the modem, disconnect it.
  2. Connect the provided Ethernet cable from the 1G LAN port on the modem to the WAN port (red) on the router.
  3. Connect one end of the power cord to the router and the other end to an active power outlet.
    • Note that it can take up to 20 minutes for the router to come online.
    • The WAN, 2.4GHz and 5GHz lights on the back of the router will turn green when the connection is complete and then flash when transferring data.

Good to know: If you have pods, they’ll stay connected to the network and the pod you disconnected can now be moved to another location for better coverage. Learn more about choosing the optimal placement for your pods.
