Home Network Modem Gateway Configuration

This section provides a tutorial example of how to view the modem gateway configuration settings with a Web browser.

The installation guide provided by the telephone company also tells us how to review the modem gateway configuration and make changes if needed. Here is what we did by following the guide:

1. Open a Web browser and enter this address: http://192.168.2.1/. A Web page shows up as shown in this picture:
