The advanced setup area of your modem GUI gives you greater control over your modem's operation. These settings are best for tech-savvy folks who understand a bit more than the typical user about modems and networking.
How to access the Advanced Setup menu
Note: Your modem settings may appear slightly different from the images below, but the steps will be the same.
1. Connect a device to your network over WiFi or using an Ethernet cable connected to your modem. This works best on a tablet or computer.
2. Open a web browser and type http://192.168.0.1 into the web address field.
3. Sign in to the modem settings (GUI) using your Admin Username and Admin Password, printed on the sticker.
DNS Host Mapping: Creates a static hostname for the specified IP address in the DSL router. WAN and LAN IP addresses are supported.
LAN Subnets: Your modem can support multiple LAN subnet settings. Use the DHCP Settings page to configure the default IPv4 subnet.
CBRAS configuration: CBRAS is a specialized CenturyLink remote access server that allows multiple sources of internet traffic (cable, DSL or broadband wireless) to converge in a single network.
Quality of Service (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 Console: Enables telnet or SSH access to the router from a WAN connection using the WAN IP address of the modem.
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 firmware settings of the modem. 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.
