When your Google Fiber system is installed, the installation specialist uses a wall plate to cover the hole drilled to bring the fiber cable into your home. The small box attached to the wall plate is called a Fiber Jack. The Fiber Jack (GFLT100, GFLT110, GFLT300, or GFLT132) is an Optical Network Terminal (ONT).
Your Fiber Jack will look different and have different colored lights, depending on its model number.

Locating your Fiber Jack
In a single family home, your Fiber Jack will be found on an interior wall, typically in a main living room and near a power outlet. It might be behind a couch or it may be on the wall in another room or garage.
In an apartment, condo or multiple dwelling, the Fiber Jack may not be as obvious. It may be on a wall in a main living area, bedroom, laundry room, in a closet in the bedroom, bathroom or entryway, or out of the way behind a wall panel or inside a media cabinet. In some units, the media panel will have a latched door, in others you may need to unscrew a panel from the wall to access your Fiber Jack.

If you live in an apartment and do not see a Fiber Jack, look for an ethernet wall plate instead:
Power your Fiber Jack
The fiber cable from outside your home attaches to a special port on one side of the Fiber Jack. The GFLT100 and GFLT132 have a power cord that plugs into a standard electrical outlet. The GFLT110 and GFLT300 both get their power from the router and don't require a power cable.
