Unpacking the M7i Router


The router is shipped in a cardboard carton, secured with foam packing material. The carton also contains an accessory box and the M7i Internet Router Installation Quick Start.


The router is maximally protected inside the shipping carton. Do not unpack it until you are ready to begin installation.

To unpack the router, perform these steps (see Figure 1):

  1. Move the shipping carton to a staging area as close to the installation site as possible, but where you have enough room to remove the system components.
  2. Position the carton so that the arrows are pointing up.
  3. Open the top flaps on the shipping carton.
  4. Remove the accessory box and verify the contents against the parts inventory on the label attached to the carton.
  5. Pull out the packing material holding the router in place.
  6. Verify the chassis components received against the packing list included with the router. A generic parts inventory appears in Generic Inventory of Router Components Installed in the M7i Chassis.
  7. Save the shipping crate, packing materials, and pallet in case you later need to move or ship the router.
