The Advanced Setup area of your modem's user interface lets you change several settings that give 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.
You can access the Advanced Setup menu by following the steps below:
1. Connect a device, such as a computer or tablet, to the internet through WiFi or using an Ethernet cable connected to your modem.
2. Open a web browser and type http://192.168.0.1 into the web address field.
3. Log in to the modem's settings interface (Modem GUI) using your Admin Username and Admin Password. Note that these are different from your wireless network name (SSID) and WiFi password (security key).
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.
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.
