entering the default username and password from network infrastructure devices like this router and so many administrators do not change it from the defaults that, occasionally, they're able to get in and wreak havoc on the network. So first thing we're prompted to do in the configuration wizard is to change the password. First, we have to enter in the old password. Then, we have to enter in a new password. Click Next.Next, we need to configure the date and time on this device. I'm going to turn on the option here to automatically synchronize the local time with an Internet time provider using the NTP protocol. We'll use this NTP server for our first NTP time server. For our back up, we'll just pick the second one. So now we have to configure our time zone. Let's pretend that this device is being implemented in eastern Australia, Brisbane. So, we'll pick the plus 10 time zone. That's 10 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time. We'll click Next. Now, we need to specify what country this device is located in. Once again, let's pretend we're in Australia, and then, we can select an Internet service provider from the drop-down list. Here's a list of big Internet service providers located in Australia. Now, you don't have to use one of these. You can come down here and click Others and then manually enter in parameters, if you want. But if you're using one of these providers, you can just select it from the list and the appropriate parameters are automatically entered for you. Configuring the WAN side of the Router 5:53-7:36 Now, notice when I selected this Internet service provider, the protocol that we will use on the WAN side of the router to connect to the ISP over the phone line is PPPOE. The connection type is automatically configured as well, as well as the VPI and the VCI parameters. Now, if you were to do this manually, you'd have to contact your ISP and ask them what parameters you should use. Down here, we have to enter in the username and password that we're going to use on the WAN side of the router to authenticate to the Internet service provider over the DSL connection. And the username they've assigned to me is 1234abcd. I'll go ahead and enter in my password. Click Next. Okay, so at this point we need to review the settings and make sure that it has been configured correctly. Here's my password. Here are my configuration settings. Now, note up here it tells us thatat this point we need to click Restart to apply the settings and reboot the router, so I'm going to go ahead and do that. This will take just a minute to reboot. I'll pause the recording. We'll come back when the reboot is complete. All right, the DSL router has been rebooted. It is now up and running again. I'll click OK, and now we log in, using the new password we just configured. All right, so at this point we've configured the WAN side of the connection. So, at this point we've configured the WAN side of the connection. The router is able to go out and contact the ISP and establish a connection over the DSL link.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
