7. ACCESSING YOUR MODEM
7.1 Logging on to Your Modem
This section explains the logon procedures for your modem. These procedures should be used any time you want to
access or make changes to your modem’s configurations or firewall settings.
IMPORTANT: Your modem is capable of automatically sensing protocol type (DHCP or PPPoE). This process is
designed to start after you have connected your modem to your network. To access your modem’s Web pages, your
PC must be configured for DHCP. Refer to your Windows help screen for information on configuring your
computer for DHCP. At your PC, click Start, then Help to access the Windows help screen.
Your ISP determines the type of protocol you will use to connect to the Internet. Routed IP allows you to connect to
your ISP equipment without first having to identify yourself (authenticate) with your ISP. PPPoE requires that you
authenticate (type an account ID and password) before obtaining an Internet connection. After automatic protocol
detection starts, the modem will determine which protocol you will use for your Internet connection.
To log on to your modem, start your Web browser, and type the following IP address in the browser’s address bar:
http://192.168.1.1
After you have typed the URL address, press Enter on your keyboard. If your modem has the Automatic PVC
Detection feature enabled (optional), you will see this screen while the modem detects and configures the WAN
connection.
The detection process will then begin as shown in the following screen.
Once the detection process is complete, you will see the following screen.

modem a WAN IP address. A WAN IP address indicates that you have established a connection with your ISP.
Routed IP allows you to connect to your ISP equipment without first having to identify yourself (authenticate) with
your ISP. Once your modem has obtained a WAN IP address, you do not need to configure any additional settings
Congratulations! You have completed the modem’s Automatic WAN Protocol Detection process. Now, go to
section 7.4, “Confirming Your Internet Connection,” to confirm your Internet connection.
7.1.2 Connecting to the Internet via PPPoE Protocol
Some ISPs require that you identify yourself using PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) authentication before obtaining an
Internet connection. To connect to the Internet for the first time via PPP, go to one of the following sections:

12.2.1 ALG
The following screen will appear if you select Security > Services > ALG from the main menu. This screen enables
you to configure application-layer modem (ALG) services for your modem by clicking on the check box of each
service that you want to enable (a check mark will appear in the box). If you change the settings in this screen, click
apply and then OK. If you click Cancel, the screen will return to its previous settings.
Enabling an ALG service opens the IP ports associated with the corresponding service. For example, if you have an
IPSec client running on a LAN-side PC attached to the modem, it is necessary to enable the IPSec ALG. Enabling
IPSec opens the default ports used by IPSec, 500 and 1500, so that traffic to and from the IPSec client may pass
through.
NOTE: When the firewall level is set to “High,” some services may not be configurable.

12.2.2 Port Forwarding
The following screen will appear if you select Security > Services > Port Forwarding from the main menu. This
screen allows you to forward incoming traffic from the outside network to a range of WAN ports on an IP address
on the LAN. You can also enable traffic from a local network (to a specified port range) to be allowed to go outside
of the network in medium firewall settings. Displayed are currently active port forwarding services. You can add
more pre-defined services (or create your own services) by selecting the appropriate entry in the Service Name
drop-down menu.
Current Profile
Click this drop-down menu to display the NAT (Network Address Translation)
services available. All of the settings on this screen are associated with a Service
Profile. The service profile is selected from the Current Profile drop-down menu. If
no profile has been created, the settings chosen are applied to the default profile.
The Service Profile drop-down menu located in the Home > Connection Overview
> Edit screen (on the Home screen, click the Add/Edit Connection link) associates a
service profile with one or more of your “Connection Profiles.” This means different
connections can allow different services to be associated with them. Use the Current
Profile drop-down menu to select a profile to edit. However the profile will be
activated from the Home > Connection Overview > Edit screen.

For host services, all the rules of the selected service are applicable only for the selected host connected to the
modem. Dynamic service will enable all the rules in the service as dynamic rules; that is, rules are applicable for all
devices connected to the modem. Traffic from the outside network coming to the modem needs to be directed to a
particular host connected to the modem; therefore, any service that contains a rule for inbound traffic (such as
having direction as “in”) cannot be enabled as a dynamic service. A predefined service can be enabled in any
direction with the proper mode selected (host service or dynamic service). Dynamic application is not applicable for
services having direction as “Inbound Only” or “Both.”

13.3.2 DHCP
The following screen will appear if you select Advanced > LAN > DHCP from the main menu. This screen
contains the settings that control how your modem interacts with local devices connected to it. It is recommended
that these settings not be changed. If you change the settings in this screen, click save and then OK. If you click
reset or Cancel, the screen will return to its previous settings.
Your modem’s Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server makes it possible to easily add computers that
are configured as DHCP clients to the home network. It provides a mechanism for allocating IP addresses and
delivering network configuration parameters to DHCP clients. A client (host) is a device connected to a network.
A client sends out a broadcast message on the LAN requesting an IP address for itself. The modem’s DHCP server
then checks its list of available addresses and leases a local IP address to the client for a specific period of time. It
simultaneously designates this IP address as “taken,” and the client keeps this IP address for the duration of the
lease.
NOTE: If you want to disable the DHCP server in the modem, uncheck the check box next to Enable DHCP
Server. Westell recommends that you do not change these settings unless your ISP instructs you to do so.
DHCP Server
Click this drop-down menu to select the DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol)
server. DHCP is an Internet standard that allows your modem to automatically

previous settings.
Public LAN allows the modem to issue DHCP addresses from its Public LAN IP address pool. IP addresses served
from the Public LAN pool bypass the NAT interface and are accessible from the WAN, allowing your computer to
have global address ability. To use the Public LAN feature, your ISP must support Multiple IP Address Passthrough.
NOTE:
1. By enabling the DHCP server for Public LAN, you automatically disable the DHCP Server for Private LAN. By
default, the modem’s Public LAN DHCP server is disabled, and the Private LAN DHCP server is enabled.
Whenever the Public LAN DHCP server is disabled, the modem will not issue public LAN IP addresses to
devices on your network.
2. Public LAN IP addresses are provided by your ISP. If you have questions about this feature, contact your ISP for
details.
3. By default, the Public LAN DHCP server is disabled. It is recommended that these settings not be changed unless
you are instructed to do so by your ISP.

13.4.7 Dynamic DNS
The following screen will appear if you select Advanced > WAN > Dynamic DNS from the main menu. Dynamic
DNS allows a dynamic IP address to be aliased to a static hostname. For example, consider a situation where you’re
hosting a server on your modem’s LAN and your modem receives a dynamic WAN IP address from your ISP.
Without Dynamic DNS, if your WAN IP address changes, external users will have no way of knowing what your new
WAN IP address is, and therefore, will not be able to access your server.
To address this situation, a number of companies (dynamic DNS ISPs) offer a service through which you may obtain
a URL hostname for the server that you’re hosting. This hostname is associated with the WAN IP address of your
modem. The modem incorporates an “update client” that monitors for WAN IP address changes. If a change is
detected, the update client notifies the dynamic DNS service provider of your new IP address. The dynamic DNS ISP
then updates your DNS record by associating your new IP address to your hostname. Thus, external users access your
server using your hostname and are unaffected by a change in your IP address.
If you change the settings in this screen, click save and then OK. If you click discard, the screen will return to its
previous settings.

13.5 Single Static IP
The following screen will appear if you select Advanced > Single Static IP from the main menu. This screen
contains the settings that allow the PPP address received from the network to be propagated to a single LAN device
behind the modem.
Single Static IP (SSI) allows you to select one device on your LAN that will share the WAN assigned IP address. By
doing this, the device with the SSI becomes visible on the Internet. Network Address Translation (NAT) and
Firewall rules do not apply to the device configured for SSI. If you are using Bridge (Routed Bridge) protocol,
Single Static IP configuration will not be available.
IMPORTANT:
1.
Before you begin this section, configure your PC settings to obtain an IP address from your modem
automatically. If needed, refer to your computer’s Windows help screen for instructions.
