1. Auto-Configure the modem with your ISP by directly connecting the modem to your computer. Follow the instructions given in the booklet/user manual/ISP letter to enter the PPPoE username & password.
2. After configuration is complete, confirm that you are connected to the internet.
3. Click 'Advanced Setup' on the Main Menu.
4. Turn off DHCP Server on the 'DHCP Settings' page. Click Apply.
5. Go to 'WAN IP Address' page and click Yes on the warning. Select RFC 1483 Transparent Bridging. Click Apply.
6. The Internet light on the modem will turn off and always remain off in bridged mode.
7. Remove cable from computer and plug into WAN port of your Router.
8. In your router settings enter the PPPoE username & password. Follow instructions in your router's user manual to enable DHCP on your router.
You should now be connected to the Internet using your modem & router in bridged mode.
THere are 3 setup choices (my wording):
1) totally automatic
2) you select your provider
3) completely manual
While I was comfortable with doing a manual setup, I was curious to see how easy it would be using option 2. I had to know that my Verzion service was PPPOE, but other than that it did indeed need no information except the user and password.
I looked at the options (firewall, NAT, pass-through, etc) but didn't set any of them as I use this with a router and have everything configured in the router.
Interestingly, it is running faster than the Westell's I've used (and I've had several). I've run some tests and while they're not controlled, I'm seeing about 8%.
Physically, it's very small and is clearly more fragile than other DSL modems I've had, using thinner plastic. It wouldn't put up with much abuse, but then there's no reason it should be subjected to it.
Important point: The ethernet cable they provide is a cross-over, and you need that on setup when connectiong the modem directly to your computer. If using a router, you'll then not use that cable again. Most people setting up modems with routers know this, but there's virtually no documentation for this thing and the on-disc manual is weak.
