You may be able to save the cost of professional installation by installing your Internet service yourself. Contact customer service to make sure you're eligible to order a self-installation kit and that you get everything you need.

Order the Kit
When you order your kit, your Service Order Due Date is the date your Frontier High-Speed Internet service will become active and your billing will begin. You can't complete installation or download Frontier software until that date.

We'll tell you your Service Order Due Date by email or phone call. It is usually within 48 hours after you place your order.

Your Self-Installation Kit should arrive within 3 to 4 business days of your Service Order Due Date and includes:
Install the equipment
Frontier High-Speed Internet installation is a three-step process that should take about 30 minutes:
  1. Install DSL filters on phones (if needed). Filters block DSL signal from reaching telephone, fax, or answering machine, preventing static or hissing. Except for DSL modems or wireless routers, every telephone machine sharing the phone line that has Frontier High-Speed Internet requires a filter.
  2. Install Router or Gateway. Basically this consists of connecting some wires:
    • Plug your router or gateway's power supply into an electrical outlet and connect the other end to the device.
    • Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into a port on the back of the device and the other end into your computer's Ethernet port.
    • If you have a Westell 7500, Netgear 7550, SpeedStream 6520, or SE 567 Gateway, plug one end of a DSL phone cable into a telephone wall jack and the other end into the DSL port on the back of the gateway.
  3. Install DSL software on computer. Avoid software installation problems by exiting all programs and temporarily disabling anti-virus or fax software. Need assistance? Call 1.800.584.3384, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Be sure to see the Video Gallery on this page and download the self-installation guide that's appropriate for you: Here are Quick Start Guides for several types of routers: For device-specific instructions for configuring your router or gateway for wireless use, see Configure My Router.
Use My Fax Program
To use your fax program, you may need to disconnect your Internet connection and connect your dial-up modem. If you plan to use the same phone line your High-Speed Internet is on, you will need a filter.

If your fax program is compatible with High-Speed Internet, contact the program's manufacturer for information on coordinating the fax program with your connection. Our help desk does not support third party software such as fax programs.
