3.3.3 Testing Your Setup
At this point, the router should enable any computer on your LAN to use
the router's ADSL or cable modem connection to access the Internet.
To test the Internet connection, open your web browser, and type the URL
of any external website (such as http://www.asus.com). The LED labeled
WAN should be blinking rapidly and may appear solid as the device
connects to the site. You should also be able to browse the web site
through your web browser.
If the LEDs do not light up as expected or the web page does not display,
see Chapter 14 for troubleshooting suggestions.
3.3.4 Default Router Settings
In addition to handling the DSL connection to your ISP, the router provides
a variety of services to your network. The device is pre-configured with
default settings for use with a typical home or small office network.
Table 3.2 lists some of the most important default settings. These and
other features are described fully in the subsequent chapters. If you are
familiar with network configuration settings, review the settings in Table 3.2
to verify that they meet the needs of your network. Follow the instructions
to change them if necessary. If you are unfamiliar with these settings, try
using the device without modification, or contact your ISP for assistance.
