ANTI-VIRUS Anti-Virus software detects and cleans dangerous computer viruses from your PC before they can damage your system or other networked computers. When you download Rogers Online Protection, you automatically install Anti-Virus protection. This software runs invisibly in the background of your computer, scanning files that you download and handling any detected viruses without interrupting your surfing. It is automatically updated to protect against the latest threats. And you benefit from its protection as long as you are a Rogers Hi-Speed Internet customer, with no annual re-install required.

TIPS

• If you suspect that your computer is infected with a virus, you can manually initiate a deep anti-virus scan • You can also set up the Anti-Virus program to run in-depth scans regularly or to only scan some parts of your computer • For more information visit rogershelp.com/security

ANTI-SPYWARE Anti-Spyware protection detects malicious or annoying software like adware and spyware on your computers. You can then choose to remove, ignore, or quarantine any applications that are found. The easy to use Anti-Spyware software is automatically installed with Rogers Online Protection. It provides: • Automatic, continuous protection to ensure your security at all times • Regular updates to protect you from the latest threats • The option to scan specific disks or files whenever you choose • A list of the detected spyware and a link to more information on each

How does Anti-Spyware work? Spyware activity can range from monitoring and tracking user information for marketing purposes to dangerous recording of personal information. In the worst cases, spyware can lead to full-out theft and fraudulent use of personal information. Anti-Spyware protection runs silently in the background to block spyware before it enters your computer and ensures that your surfing habits are not shared with a third party.

FIREWALL By allowing only legitimate applications to access the Internet, a firewall helps keep hackers or other unwanted intruders from gaining access to your computer or your files. In addition to Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware protection, Rogers Online Protection includes a Firewall that protects your computer. It offers: • Instant protection - Once you have installed Rogers Online Protection, the Firewall prevents unauthorized intrusions from the Internet.

A Firewall is an important part of your all-in-one security protection. It acts as a guard, blocking hackers or unauthorized users from entering your computer and stealing your files or using your computer to send personal and confidential information. It provides solid protection and peace of mind.

• Real-time alerts - The service will immediately alert you when someone tries to access or hack your computer. • Free automatic updates - You are always protected from the latest threats without having to download additional software. • Customization - Expert users can set up additional rules within the software to meet your specific needs.

PARENTAL CONTROLS Parental Controls let you place restrictions on what (and how much) your children can do online, and let you know what your children are doing within those restrictions. As part of Rogers Online Protection, you can set up Parental Controls to monitor and control the activity your children perform online. You can block access to Web sites of specific categories as well as to individual Web sites. You can control the instant messaging, file sharing and other applications your children can use. Each day, Parental Controls can monitor when your child connects to the Internet and for how long they remain connected.

This solution helps keep your family safe with: • Fast, flexible and easy user profile settings. You can quickly create multiple user accounts based on standard age profiles that you can then customize. Each account can be password protected to keep each user safe. • Strong, effective protection that works across all types of browsers and applications, so you don’t have to worry about your children bypassing the controls. • A scheduling tool to manage the time your children spend in activities like IM and chat. • Free automatic updates of new URLs added to the list of blocked websites.

Here’s how to check if Self Help Software is installed on your computer: 1. Click the Start button and select Programs (or All Programs in Windows® XP). 2. From the list of programs, select the Rogers Yahoo! option. 3. If an item called Self Help appears, you already have the Self Help Software installed.

SOLVING EMAIL PROBLEMS Having problems collecting your email with an email program such as Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express? All these problems can be avoided by using Rogers Web Mail. For instruction on how to access your email through Rogers Web Mail, go to page 11. The overview of email program settings can be found on the last page of this User Guide. Additionally, detailed troubleshooting steps can be found at rogershelp.com/mail

LOSS OF INTERNET CONNECTION - CAUSES If you lose your Internet Connection ensure that you have not changed any of the cabling going to your cable modem. Cable modems are very sensitive to noise or interference and signal loss. Many factors can contribute to noise that could cause your modem to lose its connection to the Rogers Hi-Speed Internet network. • If a Rogers cable technician installed your service, they were careful to reduce all forms of noise and signal loss when your cable modem was first installed. • If you installed the cable modem yourself, please refer to your modem documentation to ensure that you have connected it correctly. Internet connection problems beyond your control Power Outage – A power outage anywhere within your neighbourhood could cause your modem to lose its connection.

Here is how to restart your modem, if you can’t connect: 1. Unplug your modem’s power cord from the power outlet. 2. If applicable, unplug your router’s power cord. 3. If an item called Self Help appears, you already have the Self Help Software installed. 4. Wait for the lights on your modem to become solid green. 5. If applicable, plug in your router and wait for it to connect with your modem. (Approximately two minutes.) 6. Restart your computer. 7. Open your web browser. Still can’t connect? Call us at 1 888 ROGERS1 (1 888 764-3771).

Cable Outage – If there is a temporary cable outage in your area (there is no signal coming into your television set), your cable modem may lose its connection. For additional reasons you may have lost your Internet connection, and steps to take to resolve the problem, please see the next page.

LOSS OF INTERNET CONNECTION – MORE CAUSES Additional reasons that you may have lost your connection CAUSE OF PROBLEM

DESCRIPTION

Added a Two-Way Splitter

If you have added a two-way splitter to the cable leading into your modem (in order to hook up your television to the same cable), you may have introduced noise or loss of signal to the modem. Please remove the splitter and reset your modem as described in Cable Modem Troubleshooting on page 44. If your cable modem comes back online, the quality of your splitter is not sufficient to use the Rogers Hi-Speed Internet service. Ask for the highest-quality coaxial cable splitter at an electronics store.

Moved your Cable Modem

Please be aware that moving a modem is not as simple as moving a television set. The cable technician dedicated a specific outlet for the modem. Moving the modem will take it off the dedicated outlet and potentially introduce unacceptable signal loss to the modem. Please return the modem to its original location and reset it as described in Cable Modem Troubleshooting on page 44. If your cable modem comes back online, the quality of the new outlet is not sufficient to use the Rogers Hi-Speed Internet service. Please contact us through one of the options listed on page 52 and our representatives will help you resolve this situation.

Changed/Extended Original Cable

If you have changed or extended the original cable leading into your cable modem, you may have introduced noise or signal loss. The coaxial cable you used to extend your cable may be the wrong type or may not be as high-quality as those installed by a cable technician. Please remove the changed or extended cable and replace it with the original coaxial cable. Then reset your modem as described in Cable Modem Troubleshooting on page 44. If your modem comes back online, the quality of your new cabling and/or extender is not sufficient to use the Rogers Hi-Speed Internet service. Ask for the highest-quality coaxial cable/extender at an electronics store.

Added an Amplifier

If you have installed an amplifier in order to boost your cable signal, you may have introduced noise to your modem. Rogers recommends against using your own amplifier, as it can create a significant amount of noise, causing your modem to lose its connection to your Rogers Hi-Speed Internet service. Please remove the amplifier and reset your modem as described in Cable Modem Troubleshooting on page 44.

MODEM TROUBLESHOOTING How to troubleshoot your modem if it isn’t connecting to the Internet. Problem 1: No illuminated lights on modem If no lights are illuminated, ensure that the power cable is securely connected to the modem and to an electrical outlet. Problem 2: Online indicator light is not solid and green (light is off or is flashing) If the online indicator light for your modem is off or is flashing, your modem is not correctly connected to the Rogers Hi-Speed Internet network. NOTE: The online indicator light is typically called the Cable, Online, or Bloc Sync light, depending on your modem. Refer to the table on page 43 to find the correct name of the online indicator light for your modem.

To reconnect your modem: A. Ensure that the coaxial cable (TV cable) is securely connected to your cable modem and to the outlet in your wall. B. If the online indicator light is still not solid and green, disconnect the power cable from the power outlet.

Problem 3: Link/computer light is not solid (light is off or is flashing) Some of the modems illustrated in the table on page 43 have a Link light. This light indicates whether your computer is correctly connected to the modem. If this light is not solid (it is off or is flashing), here’s how to fix it: A. If you have connected the modem to your computer through a USB cable, ensure that the USB cable is securely connected to both the jack on the back of the modem and the jack on the back of your computer. B. If you have connected the modem to your computer through a network card or network port on your computer, ensure that the network adapter connector cable is securely connected to the network port at the back of your computer AND to the Ethernet port at the back of the modem. NOTE: Never use both a USB cable and a network adapter connector cable to connect your computer to the modem. Choose just one cable!

• DO NOT UNPLUG the power cable from the back of the modem, as this may damage the modem! C. Wait 30 seconds and plug the power supply back in. • The lights on the front of the modem will begin to flash until the modem is functioning correctly. Verify this by referring to the table on page 43. NOTE: It may take up to 10 minutes before the modem goes online, so please be patient. If the online indicator light does not become solid and green after 10 minutes, please refer to Loss of Internet Connection - Causes on page 41 for additional information.

What is my monthly Internet usage allowance? In an effort to keep pace with the evolving Internet needs of our Rogers Hi-Speed Internet customers and to continue providing you with a fast and efficient service, we have implemented usage allowances for all our service levels. See page 6 for information about your service level, including your usage allowance. To enable you to be informed about how much data you are using each month, we have included this information through the Online Self Serve tool available at rogers.com/signin How do I know how much of my usage allowance my household is using each month? All customers can view their monthly usage through the Online Self Serve tool.

EMAIL-RELATED QUESTIONS I can’t send or receive email. How can I fix this? To learn how to solve email problems, visit rogershelp.com/mail. How do I set up my Rogers Hi-Speed Internet email? See page 11 to learn how. How can I access my email when I’m away from home? Rogers Yahoo! Mail is a free, Web-based way of accessing your email. Go to rogers.yahoo.com, click on the Mail icon and login to access your email from any Internet connection. See page 11 for details.

Can I use email programs other than Microsoft Outlook Express to retrieve my email? We highly recommend using the web-based Rogers Yahoo! Mail as your primary email program. See page 11 for more information on Rogers Yahoo! Mail. Virtually any email program that supports ‘POP3’ email can be used to access your email. To learn how, visit rogershelp.com/pop

How do I set Microsoft Outlook Express (or any other installed email program) as my default email program, instead of Rogers Yahoo! mail? 1. Right click the Internet Explorer icon on your desktop and click Properties. The Internet Properties window appears. 2. From the Internet Properties window: A. Click the Programs tab at the top of the window. B. In the Email drop-down menu select your preferred email program. C. Click OK. 3. The next time you click an email link, Microsoft Outlook Express (or the program you chose) will be used as your default email program.

SPAM-RELATED QUESTIONS What is SPAM? SPAM is essentially electronic junk mail or unsolicited email asking you to buy a product or visit a Web site. The majority of SPAM is not dangerous; however, it is sometimes offensive, often annoying and always unwanted. What should I do if I receive SPAM? You can reduce the amount of SPAM in your inbox by using Rogers Yahoo! Mail to access your email. Rogers Yahoo! Mail offers multiple ways of reducing SPAM. For more information, visit rogershelp.com/mail

Can I use Rogers Yahoo! SPAMGuard with an email program other than Rogers Yahoo! Mail? Rogers Yahoo! SPAMGuard works best within Rogers Yahoo! Mail, as it learns what you consider to be SPAM and what you consider to be legitimate messages. However, it can be used with an email program such as Microsoft Outlook Express. It is a little more involved to use Rogers Yahoo! SPAMGuard within email programs. Visit rogershelp.com/mail for more information.

SECURITY-RELATED QUESTIONS How can I protect my children while they’re online? While there are great places for your kids to learn and play on the Internet, there is always the opportunity for your kids to stumble across inappropriate sites and content.
