Internet Access Using P660 under Bridge mode
If the ISP limits some specific computers to access Internet, that means
only the traffic to/from these computers will be
forwarded and the other will be filtered. In this case, we use P660 which works as an ADSL bridge modem to connect to the ISP. The ISP will generally give one Internet account and limit only one computer to access the Internet. See the figure below for this setup.
1. Ethernet connection
To connect your computer to the Prestige's LAN port, the computer must have an Ethernet adapter card installed. For connecting a single computer to the Prestige, we use a cross-over Ethernet cable.
2. TCP/IP configuration
Is most cases, the IP address of the computer is assigned by the ISP dynamically so you have to configure the computer as a DHCP client which obtains the IP from the ISP using DHCP protocol. The ISP may also provide the gateway, DNS via DHCP if they are available. Otherwise, please enter the static IP addresses for all that the ISP gives to you in the network TCP/IP settings. For Windows, we check the option 'Obtain an IP address automatically' in its TCP/IP setup, please see the example shown below.
The following procedure shows you how to configure your P660 as an ADSL Modem for bridging traffic. We will use SMT menu to guide you through the related menu. You can use console or Telnet for finishing these configurations.
1. Configure P660 as bridge mode in Menu 1 General Setup.
2. Configure a LAN IP for the P660 and turn off DHCP Server in Menu 3.2-TCP/IP Ethernet Setup. We use 192.168.1.1 in this case.
3. Configure for Internet setup in Menu 11-Remote Node Profile.
Menu 11.1 - Remote Node Profile
Rem Node Name= Bridge Route= None
Active= Yes Bridge= Yes
Encapsulation= RFC 1483 Edit IP/Bridge= No
Multiplexing= LLC-based Edit ATM Options= No
Service Name= N/A Edit Advance Options= No
Incoming: Telco Option:
Rem Login= N/A Allocated Budget(min)= N/A
Rem Password= N/A Period(hr)= N/A
Outgoing: Schedule Sets= N/A
My Login= N/A Nailed-Up Connection= N/A
My Password= N/A Session Options:
Authen= N/A Edit Filter Sets= No
Idle Timeout(sec)= N/A
|Encapsulation||Select the correct Encapsulation type that your ISP supports. For exmaple, RFC 1483.|
|Multiplexing||Select the correct Multiplexing type that your ISP supports. For exmaple, LLC.|
|Router/ Bridge||Disable routing mode and enable bridge mode, Bridge = Yes.|
4. Configure ATM setting in Menu 11.6-Remote Node ATM Layer Options. In Menu 11.1, setup "Edit ATM Options= Yes" to enter Menu 11.6 sub-Menu.
Menu 11.6 - Remote Node ATM Layer Options
VPI #= 0
VCI #= 33
ATM QoS Type= CBR
Peak Cell Rate (PCR)= 0
Sustain Cell Rate (SCR)= 0
Maximum Burst Size (MBS)= 0
|VPI & VCI number||Specify a VPI (Virtual Path Identifier) and a VCI (Virtual Path Identifier) given to you by your ISP.|
