Power | Status | Activity | LAN | USB
- Power indicates power.
- The Status light indicates training train status. Status will stay off when not
trained/"synced"(equivalent of blinking DSL or Link light) and go on once it is synced.
There is no blinking while it's trying to sync like other modems usually have.
- Activity will stay off until it's connected, and blink/flicker back and forth with the LAN
light once it's connected (or USB light if they're using USB).
- LAN of course indicates whether something is plugged into the ethernet port, and whether it's
- USB indicates whether something is plugged into the USB port, and whether it's passing
Notes: Again, if it's not syncing, Status and Activity lights will just stay off. Normally
Activity and LAN are going to be flashing back and forth quite a lot, which indicates
traffic. Status should just stay on solid (no flickering or flashing). The power cord has a
transformer halfway up the cord, similar to many laptop power supplies.

- To log in to web interface: 192.168.1.1
Since NAT is off by default, you may need to manually program an IP address into the Local Area Connection on the correct subnet, for instance 192.168.1.7 should work.
- Once into the interface, click Advanced Setup in the menu on the left side.
- Click WAN
- Remove the connection ("WAN Setup") if there is one. There's buttons "Add" "Edit" and
"Remove". You check-mark the existing connection and click Remove.
- Then add a connection by clicking Add.
- ATM PVC Configuration: default is 0/35 so change to 0/32 (ADSL 2+ is always supposed to be
0/32), UBR without PCR, leave QoS unchecked, Next.
- PPP over ATM, Encapsulation mode: vcMux, Next.
- PPP user name and password, Authentication auto. No for everything else on this page (Dial-on-demand off, PPP IP extensions: disabled)
- Network Address translation: Enable NAT. It is off by default, so TURN IT ON by check-marking
Enable IGMP multi-cast is off by default, leave it off.
Enable WAN services is on by default, leave it on.
- Service Summary, click Save. Takes you back to main WAN setup page. Click Finish. Now it should say "Router
is configured and is rebooting".
(Or, it may take to a page with IP addresses. Leave this all how it is: 192.168.1.1 and
Save and Reboot)
If it's not syncing, status and activity lights will just stay off. In that case, make sure
everything is filtered, make sure nothing has changed on their phone system, etc., just like
you would for normal DSL. If it hasn't, you'll have to reassign to the DSL department.
Miscellaneous Marginally Useful Facts:
Manufactured by Zhone
At Visionary we give out this modem exclusively to customers who have ADSL2+. So if they have a Paradyne, you know they have ADSL2+. This modem actually is compatible (will work) with regular ADSL also, but we just use it for 2+.
