Setup Instructions


Route Power

Connect the NSG-E Power Adapter to the unit, and tighten the locking nut.

Then connect the 7850 NSG-E to the AC power supply (110-250V).


Connect WAN

For single-uplinks, connect an Ethernet cable to any port. For dual-uplinks, connect two Ethernet cables to two ports.

  • WAN connection: Any port can be used for a WAN. Ports one and two are default, unless otherwise specified.
  • LAN connection: Any port can be used for a LAN. Ports three through six are default, unless otherwise specified.



For automatic bootstrap mode, insert the USB bootstrap key into any USB port and power on the NSG device.

For multi-factor bootstrapping, connect a laptop to Gigabit Ethernet Port 6.


Final Step

After bootstrapping, connect devices to any available ports (such as those not used for WAN connections) using Ethernet cables.

Safety Guidelines

General Safety

  • Keep this equipment away from humidity
  • Put this equipment on a reliable surface during installation. Dropping it or letting it fall may cause damage.
  • Before connecting the equipment to the power outlet, make sure that the voltage of the power source is correct.
  • Position the power cord so that people cannot step on it. Do not place anything over the power cord.
  • Please note all cautions and warnings on the equipment.
  • If the equipment is not used for a long time, disconnect it from the power source to avoid damage by transient over-voltage.
  • Never pour any liquid into an opening. This may cause fire or electrical shock.
  • If one of the following situation arises, get the equipment checked by service personnel:
    - The power or plug is damaged.
    - Liquid has penetrated into the equipment.
    - The equipment has been exposed to moisture.
    - The equipment does not work as expected.
    - The equipment has been dropped and damaged.
    - The equipment has obvious signs of breakage.
  • The sound pressure level at the operator's position according to IEC 704-1:1982 is no more than 70 dB (A).

Operating Safety

  • Electrical equipment generates heat. Ambient air temperature may not be adequate to cool equipment to acceptable operating temperatures without adequate circulation. Be sure that the room in which you choose to operate your system has adequate air circulation.
  • Ensure that the chassis cover is secure. The chassis design allows cooling air to circulate effectively. An open chassis permits air leaks, which may interrupt and redirect the flow of cooling air from internal components.

Static Electricity Prevention

  • Be sure you are at an ESD workstation, or grounded with an ESD strap before opening the top cover or installing/removing any unit accessible from the outside. Doing so will discharge any static electricity that might have been built up in your body.
  • Don't touch any components inside the system while the system is on.
  • Disconnect power before making any configuration changes. The sudden rush of power as you connect a jumper or install a card may damage sensitive electronic components.
  • When unpacking a static-sensitive component from its shipping carton, do not remove the component's antistatic packing material until you are ready to install the component in the unit.
  • When transporting any electrical component, first place it in an antistatic container or packaging.

You're all set!
