The BellSouth Westell 2100/2200/6100s offer three different modes to establish a connection to the internet.

Manual Mode - Requires you to manually initiate your DSL connection much like a dial up modem configuration. It requires you to click a "connect" button that is accessed through the modem interface.

On Demand - Automatically initiates a connection when you make an internet request. This is the default mode for the Westell, but doesn't always work correctly.

Always On - Westell will automatically initiate a connection whenever powered (independent of any request from the PC) or when the PPP session is dropped for any reason. Most people prefer Always On simply because it is always on. Click here for more info.
