Activating Your Customer-Owned Modem

Due to popular demand, we’ve provided self-activation guides for most major providers in the US. Take a look at these to help get started with your activation, or if you get stuck along the way. ModemGuides customers are always welcome to contact us for additional support, if needed.

Product Manuals FAQ

I couldn't find the manual for my modem, will you be releasing it soon?

We are still working on developing product manuals for many of our products for your reference, however we may not have plans to work on the specific one you need. If you don’t see your here, please send us a message letting us know the manufacturer name and model number of the product so we can ensure it gets added.

I couldn't find my internet provider in your list of Activation instructions, will it be added later?

In some cases, yes. However, this entirely depends on if your provider offers a self-activation option. In general though, you can always follow these 2 steps to get your device activated:

  1. Plug your new modem in the same way the old one was connected.
  2. Call your provider’s customer service and ask them to activate it.

When you call your provider, they’ll ask you questions about the modem and go through manual activation with you over the phone. This method may take a little longer than a true self-activation, but it’s no less effective and works for the vast majority of providers.

I have a question that wasn't answered here or your FAQ page.

Contact us! We are here to help, and provide as much support as we are able to.
