If you have the eBlocker packaging in front of you, please open the seal of the packaging with a sharp object first. Now open the packaging and remove the contents from the box.
You should have unpacked the following:
- The eBlocker
- A quick guide
- The license card
- A set of eBlocker stickers
- One orange LAN cable
- One box with the power supply unit
Connect the orange LAN cable first to your router and then to the eBlocker. If you hear a "click" while connecting, the cable is properly connected between the router and eBlocker.
Now unpack the power supply and select the appropriate attachment for your country. Slide the attachment onto the power supply until you hear a "click".
Now connect the power supply to the eBlocker and after a few seconds the two LEDs on the LAN port of the eBlocker will light up or flash. The eBlocker now starts its operating system, it takes about 5 minutes.
For a smooth setup of the eBlocker we recommend to use a computer that is directly connected to your network via Ethernet cable. After about 5 minutes start your Internet browser and go to the website setup.eblocker.com, or eblocker.box. You will now see either the Welcome website, or the eBlocker Dashboard.
On the Dashboard you will see a card called "Settings". Click here on "Activate" to activate your eBlocker. You will also see this link on the Welcome website. A wizard will follow to help you with activation.
Alternatively, you can click on the Dashbaord on the link "Go to settings" on the "Settings" card, or on the Welcome website on the link "Settings".
The Setup Wizard will now guide you through the activation process and ask for the eBlocker serial number, which you will find on the bottom of the eBlocker. Then enter the license key and your e-mail address with which you want to activate the eBlocker license.
After successful activation the eBlocker should automatically check for an update. An update can take up to 10 minutes.
Older eBlocker versions do not automatically ask for an update after successful activation. Go to eBlocker Settings > General Menu > Update tab and perform a manual update. If you do not see an update button, automatic updates are already activated. Click the slider to disable automatic updates.
Congratulations, you have now connected and activated your eBlocker. Restart all active devices in your network or disconnect the LAN or WLAN connection of the active devices for a few seconds.
