If you don't have the modem doing the PPPoE session a direct connection to the modem is needed to view the DSL info.
The first page 192.168.0.1 titled "Connection Information"
DSL UP means you have sync DOWN means no sync
Connected at shows the down/up sync rates
Software Version shows the version of the modem's software
192.168.0.1/statistics.htm titled "Statistics"
Line State UP means you have sync DOWN means no sync
Modulation G.dmt or ANSI
Max Allowed Speed (kbps) shows the sync rates
Signal to Noise margin
192.168.0.1/log.htm titled "Log"
The modem's log will keep track of when sync is achieved and when a loss of sync has occurred along with PPPoE sessions, DHCP activity and ethernet status.
When the modem is in PPP is on the computer or Bridged mode (PPPoE is not used) time stamps are elapsed time
The default setting for the 4100 modem log is to erase the log entries at every restart.
For the 5100b software version 184.108.40.206 and above the default is the same as the 4100 modem.
With the log being cleared at every restart it may be too short to get any useful info from the log entries.
For troubleshooting a problem you can change a setting on the log page so that the modem only clears the log on factory resets or clearing the log manually.
If you are asked for a copy of the modem log save it as a text file and post the saved text file.
There are some useful bits of info on this page:
