This will redirect you to a page which says – “Save Config to FLASH. Please confirm that you wish to save the configuration.” Click the “Apply” Button to store the information. Then if you want to confirm that this information is stored, restart your router.
Connecting to the Internet
Your modem should automatically synchronize and connect to the internet once the connection details have been put in and applied.
To check if your line has synchronized (wait at least 1 minute for it to synchronize), click on “Status” in the navigation panel then locate the WAN Section.
If the box says ‘xDSL line is not synchronized’ next to ‘PPPoE Connection’ (and you have waited at least a minute), ensure that your connection from the modem to the telephone line is setup correctly.
If the line is synchronized but the connection is not ‘established’, click the “Connect” button (this replaces the Disconnect button as seen in the picture).
