When the built-in PPPoE is disabled in the UHP you will require a PPPoE client on the host computer. PPPoE clients for Windows or Mac may be obtained here
»support.earthlink.net/support/DL···ient.jsp

Or you will need a Router to put between the UHP Modem and your PCs that supports PPPoE. There are several brands like Linksys, Netgear, D-Link, Zyxel, etc., that support PPPoE connections.

#1. In your Address or URL field of your browser, type <B>»172.16.0.254/config.html</b>
#2. Press enter on your keyboard


#3. Click the Disable radio button in the DHCP/NAT/PPPoE area.
#4. Click the Save Settings button.


#5. The UHP modem will now restart. Wait 60 seconds and then close the browser window.


#6. To verify the change, open a new browser window and in the Address or URL field of your browser, type http://172.16.0.254
#7. Press enter on your keyboard.


When the built-in PPPoE client is turned off, the status page should read as "Current Mode: Bridged"

The Netopia is a little different than the earlier UHP modems from Earthlink. To put it into Bridge Mode start with the page shown in the image above and follow the steps below.

1] Connect directly to the Netopia UHP Modem then type 172.16.0.254 into your browser (or copy/paste the IP) or you should be able to click here »172.16.0.254/ to access the Web Interface of the modem.
2) Next Click on Help.
3) Now Click on Advanced Settings.
4) Next to DHCP/NAT/PPPoE Mode - Enable or Disable, Select Disable and that will put the UHP Modem into Bridge Mode.
5) Once in Bridge Mode, you have to manually set the VPI/VCI (sometimes written as rVPI/rVCI) in the Netopia UHP Modem as it is not automatically detected in Bridge Mode. Use either 0/35 or 8/35 as needed for your area.

Now setup your Router to use PPPoE, Always On connection and add only your Username and Password info. Your PC should stay set to "Obtain IP Address Automatically".

How to Change rVPI/rVCI Settings on a UHP Modem

Unable to Connect Through EarthLink TotalAccess (UHP DSL Modem)

This modem is highly configurable by ISPs so this may not even work for some. If you don't know what you're doing - DON'T DO THIS. You may be charged for replacement if you muck it up.

AND DON'T SAY YOU HAVEN'T BEEN WARNED.

1). Your source IP *must* be in the 192.168.1.x subnet. Statically set a PC to something like 192.168.1.5 (not .1, that's the modem).

2). Telnet to 192.168.1.1 with a password of "mspgzyx".

My version is stuck in BRIDGE mode, regardless the setting.

Other ISP versions (and possibly other EL/Covad versions for that matter) may vary widely from this.

NOTE: To get your ADSL Line Stats run the commands that are in bold seen in the Telnet output shown below:

quote:
ChangeMe> wan adsl chandata
near-end interleaved channel bit rate: 0 kbps
near-end fast channel bit rate: 3008 kbps
far-end interleaved channel bit rate: 0 kbps
far-end fast channel bit rate: 384 kbps

ChangeMe> wan adsl linedata near
relative capacity occupation: 88%
noise margin downstream: 6.5 db
output power upstream: 12.0 dbm
attenuation downstream: 47.5 db

ChangeMe> wan adsl linedata far
relative capacity occupation: 59%
noise margin upstream: 16.0 db
output power downstream: 20.0 dbm
attenuation upstream: 31.5 db

Common Problems during the Setup of your DSL Modem

Formerly Resolution ID: 8472


How can I fix some of the common problems during the setup of my DSL modem?



quote:
If the power light on your modem is not lit after plugging it in check your power cable to make sure that it is plugged into a working electrical outlet, is securely plugged into your DSL modem, and is not worn, frayed, or broken. If your DSL modem has an On/Off switch, make sure that it is in the ON position.

If the DSL light is not lit when you first connect your modem:

•Make sure you are installing your DSL equipment after 5 p.m. on your Service Activation Date (the date you were given when you signed up for EarthLink DSL).
Make sure your modem is connected to a telephone jack that has been activated for DSL.
•If your phone company installed a phone jack specifically for your DSL connection, make sure your modem is connected to that telephone jack.
•Verify that the connections between your computer, DSL modem, and phone jack are connected correctly and securely.
•Turn the modem off (or unplug it), wait 10 seconds, then turn the modem back on (or plug it back in). Plug your modem into another phone jack in your home and check t osee if the DSL light lights up. Remember to plug the AC adapter into an electrical outlet.
•Some 900 MHz phones and halogen lamps may interfere with a DSL signal. If you are using any of these devices, try unplugging them. If unplugging one of these devices allows your modem to receive a DSL signal, try plugging the device into an outlet on a different electrical circuit (this may eliminate any interference).
•Computer monitors and stereo speakers may interfere with a DSL signal. If your DSL modem is on top of a monitor or speaker, try moving it.
