NAT Table: Displays details about the internal (private) network to the external (public-Internet) network translation.
Routing Table: Displays details about which route the device uses to find the best path when forwarding packets.
IP QoS Table: Displays traffic information on a queue basis.
Modem Table: Displays the modem's hardware resources. Details include processor, memory, sessions, recommendated actions, and LAN device log.
The wireless setup gives you control of wireless (Wi-Fi) settings.
Basic Settings: Allows you to enable/disable the wireless radio, and change the Network Name (SSID). You can view the modems current security type, key/Passphrase, and WPS PIN.
Wireless Security: Allows you to change the security type (WEP/WPA/WPA2) for your Network (SSID).
Radio Setup: Allows you to select the wireless channel (1-11), power level (10-100%), 802.11 modes (802.11b/g/n), spatial streams, aggregation, and MIMO power save.
SSID Setup: Allows you to create and manage up to 4 SSID's (wireless networks).
MAC Authentication: You can create an allow/deny list for the Wi-Fi radio on your modem using the clients MAC address.
WPS:Provides an easy and secure way to establish a wireless network by sharing the wireless key between the modem and wireless client. Learn more about WPS.
WMM: Is a Quality of Service feature that prioritizes traffic on your wireless network.
802.1x: Allows you to combine wireless security methods using WEP or WPA with the benefits of a radius server.
The utilities section gives you access to tools and information to manage your modem.
Reboot: Restart your modem using the modem interface instead of disconnecting your modem from the power and plugging it back in. Rebooting/Restarting your modem can fix Internet connection problems, improve slow moving connections and resolve wireless issues.
Restore Defaults: Clear out old settings, and bring back the factory defaults. You can selectively restore settings, or restore all settings. Choose from PPP User Name, Administrator Credentials, Wireless Settings, Firewall Settings, or Restore modem to the Factory Default State.
Upgrade Firmware: Upgrade the permanent software programmed into your modem. Updates are provided to add features or improve your modem's performance.
Ping Test: Test the reachability of a specified destination.
Traceroute: Records the route through the Internet between your computer and a specified destination.
Diagnostic Test: Test WAN Ethernet, DSL PHY, Encapsulation, PPP, and DNS.
Web Activity Log: Details about what the devices on your LAN are viewing.
Time Zone: View or change the current time zone for your modem.
The advanced section gives you more control over your modem.
Access Scheduler: Allows you to select a device connected to your network and set Internet access rules.
Service Blocking: Allows you to select a device connected to your network and block specific Internet services.
Website Blocking: Allows you to select a device connected to your network and block that device from accessing certain websites
Broadband Settings: Allows you to change the connection parameters to your service provider. These settings should not be changed unless instructed by your ISP.
DHCP Settings: Allows you to edit the DHCP settings that define the LAN addressing parameters for your modem to allocate IP addresses to LAN devices.
WAN Settings: Allows you to change the protocol and addressing type required by your ISP for Internet access. These settings should not be changed unless instructed by your ISP.
DNS Host Mapping: Creates a static hostname for the specified IP address in the DSL router. WAN and LAN IP addresses are supported.
Dynamic DNS: Associates the WAN IP address of your router with a hostname.
QoS: Prioritizes traffic types (such as VoIP) before standard data traffic. Traffic shaping your network with QoS can increase application performance and prevent your network from becoming overloaded.
Remote GUI: Enables access to the router from a WAN connection. To access your modem remotely you will need to use https:// followed by the modem WAN IP address. You can manage the Administrator Username and Password for the modem GUI here.
Remote Telnet: Enables telnet or SSH access to the router from a WAN connection using the modems WAN IP address.
Static Routing: Adds routers manually to the routing table. If a change or a failure occurs between two statically defined nodes, traffic will not be rerouted and must wait for the failure to be resolved by the administrator.
Administrator Password: Prevents outsiders from accessing the modems firmware settings. After creating a username and password, you will need to enter them every time you access the modem firmware GUI located at http://192.168.0.1.
NOTE: If you have an ISP other than CenturyLink, please contact your ISP directly for IPv6 support. You can see if your modem is IPv6 compatible in the features section. IPv6 may not be available in all areas.
