This Job Aid supports all Technician audiences. This process applies for all Viasat gateways and modems:

  • Viasat Home (Data) Gateway (VHG)
  • SurfBeam 2
  • SurfBeam 2+ (plus)

Modem/Gateway Provisioning

After pointing and peaking is completed and the software has been downloaded, the modem will reboot.

If you are installing a Viasat Gateway open a web browser and navigate to

If you are installing a SurfBeam 2 or 2+ navigate to any webpage and you will be automatically redirected to the provisioning process.

For a Viasat Gateway, the Modem/IFL Cable status screen will appear. From here, click the Modem menu and select Activate.

The Welcome screen appears. Click the Continue button.

When the computer browser opens, the Gateway Network automatically directs the browser to the Provisioning Network. The Provisioning System then displays the Welcome to Service Activation page.

On this page, enter the Customer Code in the Customer Code field. This code is found on the work order.

Confirm that the Modem MAC address matches the MAC address on the modem.

Click Next Step to display the next page.

On the Customer Confirmation page validate the Customer name and address. If it is incorrect click Cancel and re-enter the correct Customer Code.

Enter the Installer ID in the Installer ID field. Each Viasat Partner requires you to use a certified Installer ID associated with your installations. You may have more than one Installer ID and you must use the correct ID for each Partner Installation.

Note: The provisioning system will verify the Installer ID. The ID can fail:

  1. Non-existent: The ID does not exist in the database.
  2. Expired: You did not complete recertification and the ID Expiration Date is past
  3. Wrong Partner: The Installer ID exists in the database as certified, but it is not associated with the partner that issued the installation order.

After the customer information and Installer ID are verified, the system will ask to verify the customer’s contact email account. If it is not correct select No and update it.

Otherwise, click Yes.

The Quality of Install (QOI) page displays. This Quality of Install test can take up to one minute.

If any red values appear, repair the installation until all values appear green.

Click Run QOI to have the system recheck the Quality of Install. Do not restart provisioning.

Click Continue to continue the Provisioning Process.

The New customer account setup screen appears.

Click Customer to continue.

Have the customer confirm the last four digits of the payment method.

This will be the same payment method that they signed up for service with and cannot be changed until after the service is set up.

When the digits have been confirmed, click Continue Install.

The Customer Agreement appears. Allow the customer to review the agreement. If the customer has any questions about the agreement, they will need to call Customer Care.

Once the customer has reviewed it, click Get Started.

At the top of the page, the customer clicks the Finish & Submit Electronically button. This button creates the e-signature within the document.

After the Customer Agreement is signed electronically, the Thank you page appears.
Click the Print Signed Document link, and save the PDF to the desktop for the Customer.
Once the document is saved for the customer, click Continue.

Allow up to 10 minutes for the modem to activate.

Verify the modem is online- the light should be blue. Then click Continue.

The Confirmation page displays.

The modem and account are now activated, and the provisioning process is complete.

The final Confirmation page displays.

Follow the on-screen steps to reboot the modem. When that is complete, open the browser and complete Customer Internet Test to validate that the computer can access and surf the internet.
