Setting Up the PC

Before you can get into your new Netopia 2241N single port modem, you will need to have the computer's ethernet interface to be set up for DHCP, **OR** you will have to set up a static IP address.

Use the following address information if setting up a static IP in the computer's ethernet interface:

IP ADDRESS: 192.168.1.100
SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255.0
GATEWAY: 192.168.1.254

PRIMARY DNS: 216.129.224.1
SECONDARY DNS: 216.220.0.1

First Time Programming


NOTICE
If you see a login page rather than the new password page when you first try to access the modem, please disregard this step and go to step 2. (Logging into Netopia)


Now that you have your computer set up for DHCP or a static IP address, log in to the Netopia 2241N single port ADSL modem.

In order to login, open a web browser, (Internet Explorer works best for this), and in the address bar type in the following IP address.

192.168.1.254

After you input the IP address, press the "GO" button or press "ENTER" on your keyboard to access the page. If everything goes as anticipated, you will see a login screen prompting for username and password. (Above)

At this point in the process, input the username and the password as follows:

NEW PASSWORD: admin
CONFIRM PASSWORD: admin

After inputting the username and password, simply click the "Submit" button. You will be redirected to the login prompt.

Logging Into the Netopia 2241N


Assuming the first step has been done, you will need to log into the Netopia modem.

In order to login, open a web browser, (Internet Explorer works best for this), and in the address bar type in the following IP address.

192.168.1.254

After you input the IP address, press the "GO" button or press "ENTER" on your keyboard to access the page. If everything goes as anticipated, you will see a login screen prompting for username and password. (Above)

At this point in the process, input the username and the password as follows:

USERNAME: admin
PASSWORD: admin

After inputting the username and password, simply click the "OK" button. You will be redirected to the default home page of the modem.




After logging back into the Netopia modem's home page, click the "Home" button at the top left-hand side of the window to begin configuring your modem.

Setup


To begin programming the Netopia 2241N you need to enter expert mode. To do this, you need to click the "Expert Mode" link on the left menu.




After clicking the expert mode link, the browser will take you to a confirmation page asking if you are sure you will like to enter this working mode. Please click the "OK" button to enter expert mode.




From this point, you will need to click on the "Configure" button on top menu bar so we can enter the configuration mode.




In the configuration menu, the next step would be to click on the "WAN" link.




Within the WAN configuration page, you need to click on the "ATM" link.




Now the actual programming process begins. To start make the following changes to VPI and VCI:

VPI: 0
VCI: 35

Once those changes have been made, you will need to change the encapsulation type dropdown to "RFC-1483 Bridged Ethernet".

Next, verify that multiplexing is set to "LLC/SNAP" and also change PPPoE Sessions to "0" (Zero).

After the following changes have been made, click the "Submit" button.




Once the information has been submitted, the next step of the programming process would be to click on the "WAN" link on the left menu again.




From within the WAN menu, you will need to click the "RFC-1483 Bridged Ethernet vcc1" link, which will take you into the page to enter your static IP addresses.




Now that you are in the interface programming page, the first thing to do is UNCHECK "Obtain IP Address Automatically". After un-checking that checkbox, you will see some new input boxes appear.

Enter the following information into the two input boxes:

IP Address ( IP ASSIGNED BY NEMONT )
IP Netmask ( SUBNET ASSIGNED BY NEMONT )

Also make sure that you change restrictions dropdown to "NONE".

Once finished making the above changes, you will need to click the "Submit" button to save them to the Netopia's temporary memory.




After submitting the changes, click on the "WAN" link on the left hand side again.




Within the WAN configuration page, you will need to place a check in the "Enable Gateway Option" checkbox. After checking this box, two more items should drop below it.

Verify that the interface type is set to "IP Address" and then enter the following for Default Gateway:

Default Gateway ( GATEWAY ASSIGNED BY NEMONT )

Once the data has been entered into the WAN configuration page, click the "Submit" button once again to save the changes into the modem's temporary memory.

Adding DNS


Assuming that you have completed all of the prior steps up to this point, one of the final processes in programming your Netopia 2241 is adding DNS.

To add DNS, you will need to start by clicking the "Advanced" link on the left hand menu.




Once in the advanced settings menu, in the listing of links, locate and click on "DNS".




From within the DNS configuration page, make the following changes:

**Domain Name is not needed
Primary DNS ( 216.129.224.1 )
Secondary DNS ( 216.220.0.1 )

After entering the DNS addresses, save them to the modem's temporary memory by simply clicking on the "Submit" button.

Saving Configuration


Now that you are all done configuring your Netopia to get on the Internet, you need to save the changes to the internal memory so if you were to powercycle, your settings will not be lost. To begin saving the new settings, click the yellow triangle button on the right side of the setup window.




Once in the validation/save configuration window, you will need to click on the "Save and Restart" link to save the settings to the modem, and then reboot the modem with the new settings in place.

After clicking on link, the modem will reboot. Wait for it to power back up completely and then at that point, try to access the Internet.

If you were to click the "Save" link only, the modem would save the new settings to its internal memory, but would not activate the changes until after a modem reboot. This is why you need to click the "Save and Restart" link.



Congratulations! You are now done configuring your Netopia 2241N Single Port ADSL modem.
