9. CONFIGURING YOUR BROADBAND CONNECTION
To browse the Internet using your Router, you must confirm your DSL connection, set up your account profile, and
establish a DHCP or PPP session with your Internet service provider (ISP). The procedures for configuring your
Router’s connection settings are explained in this section.
9.1 Confirming Your DSL Connection
After you have logged on to the Router and changed your administrator password, as explained in section 8, the
following home page will appear. Use this page to determine the status of your DSL and Internet connections.
IMPORTANT: You must have active DSL service before the Router can synchronize with Verizon’s equipment.
To determine if the Router has established a DSL link, do any of the following:
•
In the My Modem panel of the Main page, view the DSL link field. If the status reads Not Connected,
you do not have a DSL link. However, if DSL Link field displays Connected and the Speed (Down/Up)
field displays numeric values, a DSL link has been established. The values displayed represent the
transmission rates of your DSL signal, downstream and upstream. (You may need to wait a brief moment
for the Router to report these values.)
•
At the front of the Router, check to see if the Router’s DSL LED is solid green. Solid green indicates that
the Router’s DSL connection has been established. (The DSL LED may flash while the connection is being
established.) Please wait a brief moment for the Router to connect.

Any MSDU or MPDU larger than this value will be fragmented into an MPDU of
the specified size.
RTS/CTS handshaking will be performed for any data or management MPDU
containing a number of bytes greater than the threshold. If this value is larger than
the MSDU size (typically set by the fragmentation threshold), no handshaking will
be performed. A value of zero will enable handshaking for all MPDUs.
These are the allowable communication rates that VersaLink will attempt to use.
The rates are also broadcast within the connection protocol as the rates supported

Description
A bridge is a layer 2 device that connects two segments of
the same LAN that use the same protocol such as Ethernet.
The modem does not have a WAN IP address in this mode.
The client PC will typically get an IP address from a DHCP
server in the network or the IP address can be assigned to
the client PC statically.
Routed Bridged Encapsulation (RBE) is the process by
which a bridged segment is terminated on a routed
interface. Specifically, the Router is routing on an IEEE
802.3 or Ethernet header carried over RFC 1483 bridged
ATM. RBE was developed to address the known RFC1483
bridging issues, including broadcast storms and security.
The modem will get a WAN IP address through DHCP or
can be assigned statically. NAT will use the global address
assigned to the modem.

High security level only allows basic Internet functionality. Only Mail, News, Web,
FTP, and IPSEC are allowed. All other traffic is prohibited.
Like High security, Medium security only allows basic Internet functionality by
default. However, Medium security allows customization through NAT configuration
so that you can enable the traffic that you want to pass.
Low security setting will allow all traffic except for known attacks. With Low
security, your Router is visible to other computers on the Internet.
Factory Default = No Security (None)
The Firewall is disabled. (All traffic is passed)
Custom is a security option that allows you to edit the firewall configuration directly.
Note: Only the most advanced users should try this.
15.2 Editing Firewall Security Rules
To edit the firewall security rules and customize them to your preference, in the General screen, click Edit. If no
security rules have been previously configured, the following pop-up screen will appear. Click OK in the pop-up

Your Router contains a list of predefined Port Forwarding services, and you can select any service from this list. By
selecting your specific service and setting up a profile, you will ensure that the appropriate ports on your Router are
open and that the required application traffic can pass through your local area network (LAN). For a list of
supported services, go to section 18, “Port Forwarding Services.”

Creating a Service Based on Specific Port Forwarding Ports
The Port Forwarding feature allows you to forward a range of WAN ports to an IP address on the LAN. You can set
up a port forwarding entry based on your specific ports.
IMPORTANT: Using various Internet applications depends on the Router’s firewall settings. Make sure that the
Router’s firewall is set to Medium Security or lower to take advantage of all the port forwarding features. Firewall
settings take precedence over port forwarding services configured in the Router. For example, if the firewall is set to
Medium Security, this will block ICMP packets even if the ICMP service is enabled. If a port forwarding service is
not working, try setting the firewall to a lower setting.
To create a port forwarding service based on specific port forwarding ports, at the Create Port Forwarding Service
screen, do the following:
1.
Type the name of the custom service that you are creating in the field provided. This will be the name of the
port forwarding service for which you are configuring specific Port Forwarding rules.

If you want to PING using the System Self Test screen (diagnostics page) shown above, enter your DNS or IP
address in the fields provided and click on the test button. The System Self Test will run a diagnostic test that
executes independent of firewall security settings. See the following table for test descriptions and possible
responses.
If you want to PING using the MS-DOS (shell) window, first you will need to check your firewall security setting.
(If you PING via DOS shell you are susceptible to firewall rules, as this PING is dependent on VersaLink's firewall
settings.) If your firewall is set to Medium or High, you will not be able to PING. You must set your firewall
security setting to Low or None.
