Hello again,

OK, I found the user manual for yoiur modem online, and it is located here.


 From another link on that page I found a wiki page that claims that 
youe modem does not have a web interface like mine, so you will need to 
use the telnet command shown below to get into it's configuration. It is 
Linux based, and the following Wiki page has the set up procedure for it 
using Telnet. You need to scroll down a ways to find them.

Evidently not all DSL modems have a web browser- based cinfiguration 
interface as I had assumed before. Your's evidently has both telnet and 
ftp access to it's interface.

Anyway, those pages should get you up and runnimg in short order.

Later, Ray Parrish
