Nextiva encourages customers to purchase a router with Tomato firmware. Nextiva recommends 1 Mbps of bandwidth for each phone on the account in order to ensure Quality of Service (QoS). Prior to setting up a Tomato router, collect the following information:
- Internet Service Provider
- Type of Modem

Configuring A Tomato Router:
- Unplug and turn off the modem. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the modem and the other to the Internet port of the router.
- Once plugged in, turn on the modem and connect the power adapter to the router. Plug it into a power outlet and wait for the wireless LED to turn a solid blue.
- Connect the router to a local computer, then type 168.1.1 into the address bar of a web browser to access the admin section. The username and password are both admin for Tomato routers.
