Requirements
Before connecting the ADSL modem to your PC, make sure your system is equipped with an
Ethernet controller and supports the TCP/IP protocol.
2.2 Installing a
Network
Card
If your system does not have an embedded Ethernet controller, you must install a network
interface card as instructed below (assuming that you are using the ASUS PCI-L101 Fast
Ethernet card under the operating system of Windows 98):
1. Install the PCI-L101 card on your
motherboard.
2. Power up your PC and follow the Add
New Hardware Wizard’s instructions to
install the driver. When asked to restart
your computer at the end of the installation, click Yes.
3. After restarting the system, right-click
My Computer on the desktop, select
Properties, click the Device Manager
tab, and then double-click Network
adapters to confirm that the Ethernet
driver is properly installed.
5
2. Preparations
2.3 Installing the
TCP/IP
Protocol
• Checking if TCP/IP is already installed
1. Click the Start button
on the
desktop. In the Settings menu, select
Control Panel
.
Double-click the Network icon
2. In the list of installed network components try to find the TCP/IP protocol. It
may be followed by the name of the
Ethernet controller. If you cannot locate
anything that begins with TCP/IP, install
it as described below.
.
• Adding TCP/IP in Network properties
1. Click Add.
2. Double-click Protocol.
3. Select Microsoft from the
manufacturers. In the list
of network protocols
browse to TCP/IP and
then double-click it.
.
2.4 Changing
TCP/IP Settings

1. DC +5V/2A Power Input Jack
The provided power adapter converts AC power to DC power for use with this jack. Power
supplied through this jack will supply power to the ADSL Modem.
2. Line Connector
The RJ-11 connector allows ADSL data communication between the modem and the
PSTN through a twisted-pair phone wire.
3. Console Port
The 9-pin D-sub serial port supports the RS-232 terminal interface for advanced ADSL
modem management.
4. Reset Switch
The reset button, when pressed, resets the modem without the need to unplug the power cord.
5. USB Port (optional)
The optional USB port allows the modem to be connected to your computer through the
USB interface.
6. 10/100-BaseT Ethernet Port
The RJ-45 Ethernet port supports 10Base-T networks. (100Base-TX networks will be
supported in the near future.) This port allows your PC or Ethernet hub to be connected to
the ADSL Modem through a Cat. 5 Ethernet cable.

(Cont’)
The HUB-PC switch controls the crossover function. Modem-to-PC connection must
contain crossovers. When connecting the modem to a PC, leaving the switch on the default
position PC allows you to implement crossover cabling without using a crossover cable.
When connecting the modem to an Ethernet hub’s RJ-45 downlink port, use a pen or
screwdriver to slide the switch to HUB and implement straight-through cabling. If you run
out of the hub’s downlink ports and connect the modem to the uplink port, you must slide the
switch to the position of PC.

3. Installing the ADSL Modem
Take the following steps to accomplish the installation procedure:
1. Connect the ADSL cable to the line connector of an ADSL POTS splitter.
2. Connect a telephone cable from the phone connector of the splitter to your telephone.
3. Use another telephone cable to connect the modem connector of the splitter and the
Line connector on the rear panel of the ADSL modem.
4. Connect the Ethernet cable from the RJ-45 port on your computer to the Ethernet port
on the ADSL Modem. Make sure the HUB-PC switch is in the correct position.
5. Connect the AC power adapter to the DC +5V/2A input jack on the ADSL Modem. Plug
in the AC power adapter to an electrical outlet.
NOTE: If you are not using a telephone or fax machine on the ADSL line, skip steps 1 to 3 and
connect the ADSL cable directly to the Line connector on the rear panel of the ADSL Modem.
