USB Port (optional) 6. 10/100-BaseT Ethernet Port DC+5V/2A Line Phone The provided power adapter converts AC power to DC power for use with this jack. Power supplied through this jack will supply power to the ADSL Modem.
3.2 Rear Panel 7. HUB-PC Switch The HUB-PC switch controls the crossover function. Modem-to-PC connection must (Cont’) contain crossovers. When connecting the modem to a PC, leaving the switch on the default position PC allows you to implement crossover cabling without using a crossover cable. When connecting the modem to an Ethernet hub’s RJ-45 downlink port, use a pen or screwdriver to slide the switch to HUB and implement straight-through cabling.
3. Installing the ADSL Modem Take the following steps to accomplish the installation procedure: 3.3 Connecting the ADSL Modem NOTE: If you are not using a telephone or fax machine on the ADSL line, skip steps 1 to 3 and connect the ADSL cable directly to the Line connector on the rear panel of the ADSL Modem.
For advanced modem management, use a serial cable to connect the Console port on the 4.1 COM Port ADSL modem to your PC’s empty COM port. (See the illustration in 3.3 Connecting the Configuration ADSL Modem .) Open a VT100 terminal emulation program such as NetTerm or Windows’ HyperTerminal to configure the COM port.
If you have established an ADSL connection as demon- Mode strated in 4.1 COM Port Configuration , you may evoke the Main Menu of the AAM6000EV Configuration ADSL Modem Console by placing the pointer in the white area of HyperTerminal and then pressing <Enter>.
4.2 Operation In Quick Setup Wizard, eight console operation modes are provided for your ADSL modem configuration. Refer to your ADSL service manual or consult your phone company before Mode selecting the mode. The configuration procedure for each mode will be detailed on the Configuration following pages.

4. Configuring the ADSL Modem Enter 3 in the Quick Setup Wizard to set up IPoA mode. 4.2.3 IPoA <RFC-1577> IPoA mode complies with the IETF RFC-1577 IP over ATM. In this mode, the modem acts as a routing device and, when config- ured to, implements a NAT function for PCs to share a single real IP.
4. Configuring the ADSL Modem 4.2.4 PPPoA/Bridged Enter 4 in the Quick Setup Wizard to set up PPPoA/Bridged mode. <RFC-2364> PPPoA/Bridged mode complies with IETF RFC- 2364 PPP over ATM. In this mode, the modem acts as a Step 1 bridging device, and allows users to enter their user Step 2...
4. Configuring the ADSL Modem Enter 5 in the Quick Setup Wizard to set up PPPoA/Routed mode. 4.2.6 PPPoA/Routed <RFC-2364> PPPoA/Routed mode complies with IETF RFC- 2364 PPP over ATM. In this mode, the modem acts as a routing device, and allows users to enter their user names and passwords to log on to the server’s...
4.2.7 PPPoE Enter 6 in the Quick Setup Wizard to set up PPPoE mode. <RFC-2516> PPPoE mode complies with IETF RFC-2516 PPP over Ethernet. In this mode, the modem allows users to enter their user names and passwords to log on to the server’s network.
4. Configuring the ADSL Modem Enter 7 in the Quick Setup Wizard to set up PPPoE Relay mode. 4.2.8 PPPoE Relay <RFC-2516> PPPoE mode complies with IETF RFC-2516 PPP over Ethernet. In this mode, the modem allows users to use other software solutions to implement the PPPoE client function.
4.2.9 PPTP Access Enter 8 in the Quick Setup Wizard to set up PPTP Access Concentrator mode. Concentrator <PAC> PPTP Access Concentrator mode supports Virtual Private Network (VPN) with the latest PPTP technology. It allows remote users to log on to a private network through the Internet or other networks.
