    Unhappy Mercury ADSL router

    I have purchased a Mercury ADSL router ART18CX that I am trying to configure to use with my 2 computers, using a Freeserve Broadband connection. The problem is the lack of any technical support, it all has to be configured manually without the aide of any useful information on what settings to choose, here is an example

    WAN Configuration


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    System Wide Settings


    Default Gateway




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Per VC Settings


    Enabled? VPI VCI Static IP Address Subnet Mask
    No Yes

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    MAC SPOOFING
    Mac Spoofing Disable Enable
    Mac Address

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ATM
    Service Category UBR CBR
    Bandwidth kbps

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ENCAPSULATION PPPoA VC-Mux PPPoA LLC 1483 Bridged IP LLC 1483 Routed IP LLC 1483 Bridged IP VC-Mux 1483 Routed IP VC-Mux Classical IP over ATM PPPoE VC-Mux PPPoE LLC PPPoE None

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    BRIDGE Disabled Enabled

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    IGMP Disabled Enabled

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    PPP
    Service Name
    Username
    Password
    Disconnect Timeout seconds (Max:32767)
    Authentication CHAP PAP Auto
    Automatic Reconnect

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    DHCP
    DHCP client enable
    Host Name



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Virtual Circuit: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7



    Settings need to be saved to Flash and the system needs to be rebooted for changes to take effect.

    Save Configuration





    Does anyone out there know anything about configuring this router or can someone point me in the right direction for tech advice.

    Thanks in anticipation

    If you send me your e-mail addy (PM me or mail me) I will send you the manual (PDF) for the Alcatel 510 router.

    You might be able to find the info you require from that. I know that it is a different make/model of router but the setsup for what you are after should be the either the same or similar.

    Check your mail in about 5 minutes. Am sending it just now.

    As I said in my mail I plumped for the Alcatel as there is a good manual with it. Also it is my ISP that is selling it and I will have limited tech support from them with it.
