Setup WAG320N as Bridged Mode

In Bridged Mode, only the Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) modem function is available and all the modem/router's features are disabled.  Follow the steps below in configuring your gateway to Bridged Mode.

Step 1:
Access the web-based setup page.  For instructions, click here.

NOTE: To access WAG320N web-based setup page using Mac, click here

Step 2:
On the Basic Setup sub-tab, set Encapsulation to Bridged Mode Only.


Step 3:
Set LLC or VC according to what Multiplexing your DSL connection is using.  If you're not sure, check the documentation for your DSL service.



Step 4:
From the drop-down menu, select the QoS Type from the following:

Unspecified Bit Rate (UBR) – This is for applications that are not time sensitive, such as email.

Constant Bit Rate (CBR) – This is used to specify fixed bandwidth for voice or data traffic.

Variable Bite Rate (VBR) – This option is for heavy traffic and bandwidth-sharing with other applications.


Step 5:
If you've selected UBR for QoS, the Peak Cell Rate (PCR) and Sustain Cell Rate (SCR) rate are determined automatically.  Otherwise, enter the desired PCR and SCR values.

NOTE: SCR sets the average cell rate that can be transmitted. The SCR value is normally less than the PCR value.



Step 6:
Set Autodetect to Enable to have the Virtual Path Identifier (VPI) and Virtual Circuit Identifier (VCI) settings automatically detected, or select Disable to enter the values manually.  This option should only be used when there is a single Virtual Circuit (VC). If you set the Autodetect to Enable, you can skip step 7.



Step 7:
Refer to the data from your DSL provider and enter the correct VPI and VCI values.



Step 8:
Select the DSL Modulation from the drop-down menu.  Contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) if you are not sure which mode to use.  The upstream and downstream rates vary by mode.
