Vodafone QuickStart has been introduced to make the process of getting on-line with your modem much quicker and easier than before.

This article will step you though the process of getting started with your Vodafone QuickStart modem. While it should be a relatively trouble free process, we'll also explain a few things you can check if you encounter any difficulty when you're installing your modem for the first time.

PC step-by-step guide

Step 1

Plug the device into a spare USB port.

Step 2

After a few seconds, the 'auto-play' pop-up will appear.

Step 3

Double-click ‘Run setup_Quickstart.exe’.

Vodafone QuickStart will be installed to your computer.

Step 4

Once Vodafone QuickStart is installed, your internet browser will open, and you’ll automatically be connected to the internet.

Next time you plug in your modem, your browser will open and you'll be automatically connected to the Vodafone network. The above steps do not need to be repeated.

If Vodafone QuickStart doesn't open automatically

If you can't open the Vodafone QuickStart application, check whether:

  • Your computer already has a connection via an ethernet LAN cable (usually a thick blue or yellow cabable similar to a telephone cable)
  • Your computer already has a connection via a Wi-Fi network (test this by opening you internet browser and attempting to visit a web page)
  • You're using a VPN (Virtual Private Network - usually not present unless you have intentionally set one up)

Disconnecting these should allow Vodafone QuickStart to function correctly.

Mac step-by-step guide

Step 1

When you plug in the device, it will show up on your desktop as a Vodafone QuickStart disk.

Drag the Vodafone QuickStart icon from the disk window into the Applications folder on your hard disk.

Step 2

Double-click the Vodafone QuickStart icon in your Applications folder to start the application.

Step 3

The application will start and connect you to the internet automatically.

Next time you plug in your modem, your browser will open and you'll be automatically connected to the Vodafone network. The above steps do not need to be repeated.
