How To Get a New Spectrum Guide?

New Spectrum Guide

With the advent of COVID-19, social distancing protocols and basic safety measures meant that it was not wise for customers to have staff in their homes to install their Spectrum internet and cable TV connections. As you all know, you need to be careful about physical and social interactions, especially if you have vulnerable people at home. However, this does not mean you have to deprive yourself of the internet or delay your access to that new Spectrum guide you’ve been looking forward to. 

If you want to socially distance yourself, then you can easily sign up for Spectrum WiFi plans and install the connections yourself. The company sends along with an installation kit, complete with an instruction guide, and activation details. You can also lookup this guide online, and get started with your high-speed internet and well-curated cable TV journey. Here’s how you can go through the whole process easier. 

Spectrum Installation Kits

You will receive all the equipment you need to install your internet connection right at home. This equipment should include the following:

  •  An internet modem
  • A WiFi router
  • Coaxial cables
  • Cable splitter
  • Adapters

Once you’ve confirmed you have all of the items on this checklist, you can move on to the actual installation procedure as detailed in the Spectrum guide. Make sure your coaxial cable is long enough to reach your modem to your power outlet without straining. 

In addition, you should map out where you should place your modem and router for the most well-distributed signal strength throughout your house. You can use a heat-mapping app for this purpose. In fact, you should use such an app to figure out where to place your devices and do so accordingly. Then, you can move on to the next step.

Once you know where to place your modem, you can get around to actually setting up your internet connection. Connect the coaxial cable to your modem and plug the other end into a power outlet. Then, switch on your modem and wait for the light to blink. Once it starts blinking, you know it’s good to go. This can take a few minutes, so don’t be impatient. 

Then, use a cable splitter to attach your router to the modem. Once you do that, you’ll see a blue light come on. Once it starts blinking, you know your internet is all set to go. 

Now that you’ve gotten the hardware aspect out of the way, you can get on with the next step. Use a computer or smartphone to install the internet. Click on your WiFi name, and then enter the password written on your modem. Then, install the Spectrum App and create an account there to monitor your internet usage and get information. Try connecting different devices to your internet connection to see if it’s working properly for everyone. 

Cable TV Installation

Installing your Charter cable is extremely easy. You just need to plug your coaxial cable into a power outlet and cable receiver. Then, use an HDMI cable to connect your TV to your cable receiver. After that, you just have to put some batteries into the remote that comes with your cable TV package and get started. 

However, you need to be sure your TV supports the HDMI cable you choose so that you can activate your TV services. In addition, you should try and keep all these cables as discreet as possible to avoid making the area look messy.
