“Here is a simple guide to setting up your adsl modem.”
Every different modem brand has their own admin control panel but with knowing a few basic settings you can setup any adsl modem to work.
If you get stuck any where refer to your adsl modems manual…
Firstly access your modem’s control panel by typing the default IP address into your browsers address bar.
Refer to your manual for default IP address.
Your modem might be on a different IP range if someone before you set it up.
The computers network has to be in the same IP range as that of the modem to access it.
Login using the default username and password which can be found in your manual.
Step 3 (Wizard Setup)
Some modems start up with a setup wizard to help you configure your router.
These are the details that need to be set (in no particular order):
Encapsulation: “PPPoE LLC” or “PPP over ethernet”
Bridge: Disabled (optional)
Username: “Your adsl account username given to you by your ISP”
Password: “Your adsl account password given to you by your ISP”
Thats all you need to fill in, leave the rest as defaults..
“Save settings and reboot”
