Your settings should look as they are above. DNS servers are assigned automatically by Sympaticos servers. If you do not have Sympatico, your DNS servers can be found in ipconfig /all under PPP Adapter

2) Creating an ARP Table:

Go into DOS / Command Prompt and type: arp -s MODEM_MAC_GOES_HERE
Make sure to type the MAC address in this format: XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX
Type arp -a [displays] to verify, or arp -d [deletes current entries] if you need to correct something.

The modem MAC address can be found underneath the modem as shown above.

3) You're done! Just go to and you'll be able to configure/view things from there.

*Note that you'll have to re-do an ARP table entry each reboot.

The older Bell firmwares are crippled. Look into 3rd party firmware if you want to see what the modem is really capable of.

Have fun! :)
