Getting to know AM200

This article describes the physical overview of ADSL Modem AM200.

Front Panel

The Modem's LEDs, where information about network activity is displayed, are located on the front panel.


Power (Green)
The Power LED lights up when the Modem is powered on.

Ethernet (Green)
The Ethernet LED serves two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Modem is successfully connected to a device through the Ethernet port. If the LED is blinking, it is an indication of any network activity.

DSL (Green)
The DSL LED lights up whenever there is a successful DSL connection. The LED blinks while establishing the DSL connection.

Internet (Green)
The Internet LED lights up green when an Internet connection to the Internet Service Provider (ISP) session is established. The Internet LED lights up red when the connection to the ISP fails.

Back Panel
The Modem’s ports, where cables are connected, are located on the back panel. The Modem’s reset button is also located on the back panel.

The DSL port connects to the DSL line.

The Ethernet port connects to your computer and other network devices.

Reset Button
There are two ways to reset the Modem's factory default settings. Either press the Reset Button, for approximately ten seconds, or restore the defaults on the Factory Defaults screen of the Administration tab in the Modem’s Web-Based Utility.

NOTE: Resetting the Modem to factory defaults will erase all of your settings (WAN and LAN settings, etc.) and replace them with the factory defaults. Do not reset the Modem if you want to retain these settings.

The Power port is where you connect the power adapter. With these and many other Linksys products, your networking options are limitless. Go to the Linksys international website at www.linksys.com/international for more information about products that work with the Modem.
