Safety Precautions
Before operating GW-WR151N, read the following precaution information carefully: Use the type of power that user manual marks. Use the power adapter that is packed within the device package. Pay attention to the power load of the outlet or the prolonged lines. An overburden power outlet or damaged lines and plugs may cause electric shock or fire accident. Check the power cords regularly. If you find any damage, replace it at once. Leave proper space for heat dissipation to avoid damage caused by device overheating. Heat dissipation holes enable the device to work normally. Do not cover heat dissipation holes. Keep the device away from heat outlets, high temperature places, and direct sunlight. Keep the device in dry places. Do not spill any liquid on this device. Do not connect the device to any PC or electronic product unless our customer engineer or your broadband provider instructs you to do this, because any wrong connection may cause power or fire risks. Do not place this device on an unstable surface.
