Most domestic ADSL subscribers have a
PPPoE DSL connection. Ask your ISP.
I have an ADSL PPTP Connection
PPTP is a popular communication
protocol used in Europe.
I have a Static Routing Connection
If your ISP or network manager gives you a fixed
IP address, you need to set up Static Routing.
You must remove any PPPoE software
installed in your computer before setup.
Select PPTP to enable
your PPTP connection.
Select PPPoE to enable
your PPPoE connection.
Select Static Configuration to
enable your Static connection.
Call your ISP for details on your Internet Connection
Or Configure Manually:
Use this option if you cannot use the Setup Wizard. Get your Internet
Information from your ISP and use this Guide to help you enter it into the
Gateway.
For a Cable Modem User:
Your Gateway might need special settings that only your ISP can provide.
Ask:
■ Do I have a Dynamic IP, PPPoE, PPTP, Static IP or Other?
■ Do I need a specific MAC Address to logon?
■ Do I need a specific Domain Name, Host Name or DNS server?
For PPPoE: Get your Login/Password now.
For PPTP: Get you Login/Password and Server IP now.
For Static IP: Get your IP, Subnetmask, Gateway and DNS now.
Try your internet now. You need to know how to reset your cable modem. Power off the modem for 1
minute to reset your cable modem. Sometimes, you may need to reset you modem two or more
times for it to reset. If you are unsure, please ask your ISP for details.
For an ADSL User:
You need to know which ADSL network you have: PPPoE, PPTP, Static Routing, or Dynamic. Ask your
ISP for details.
Enter the Domain, if your
ISP requires it.

by your ISP.
Enter all routing
information to setup the

PPPoE: Most users have a PPPoE Connection. If you need to click a (dial-up) program before you get
on line, or you have a user name and password with your account, you probably have a PPPoE network.
You need to have your user name, password and optional parameters including IP, subnetmask,
gateway, and DNS to setup the connection.
PPTP: Similar to PPPoE. Has been used in Europe.
Static: You need to have the IP address, subnetmask, gateway, and DNS IP's to setup the
connection.
