This Google Fiber Network Box article contains important safety, recycling, warranty, and license information. Learn about how your Network Box works.
Please read these instructions before using your Network Box. We do not want you to get hurt or your Network Box to get damaged.
- Do not use your Network Box near water. If you need to clean it, do not use a wet towel. Keep your Network Box dry.
- Do not place your Network Box near any heat sources, such as hot appliances like heaters and radiators, other electronics like computers and stereos, or inside your fireplace. Your Network Box is cool, and you should help it to stay that way.
- The Network Box is for indoor use only. Please do not try to use it outside.
- Only plug in cables and accessories specified and as directed by GFiber.
- Protect your Network Box's power cord by allowing it to loosely rest between the device and the power outlet. Do not stretch it or compress it between objects.
- Do not try to open, modify, or repair your Network Box. This could cause electric shock or injury to you. Any customer modification not expressly approved by GFiber voids your authority to operate the equipment and will void your device warranty. If you think something is wrong with your Network Box, please contact GFiber customer support.
- If your Network Box gets wet, its power cord appears damaged, or it is generally not behaving properly, please contact GFiber customer support.
- The Network Box does not have an on/off switch. If you want to turn it off, unplug it.
- Handle your Network Box with care. Do not drop or shake your Network Box.
- It is expected that your Network Box will get warm, but it needs ventilation to continue to function properly. Do not block the vents. Your Network Box may bring cool air in from the bottom and push warm air out the back. It is important that the Network Box is placed on a unobstructed, solid surface. Do not place the Network Box on a soft surface, such as a carpeted floor, which may block the airflow.
Failure to follow these safety instructions could result in fire, electric shock, or other injury or damage to the Network Box or your property.
Do not attempt to open or modify the Network Box. If you do so, you run the risk of electric shock or injury. There are no user-serviceable parts inside the Network Box.
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose Network Box to the outdoors, liquid, moisture, excessive heat, or fire.
The Network Box packaging may include plastic bags and tie-wraps. Please dispose of these properly and keep them out of reach of children, as they could present a choking hazard. Keep the Network Box, its cords, and its accessories out of the reach of small children.
