The Advanced Setup area of your modem's user interface lets you change several settings that give you greater control over your modem's operation. These settings are best for tech-savvy folks who understand a bit more than the typical user about modems and networking.
You can access the Advanced Setup menu by following the steps below:
1. Connect a device, such as a computer or tablet, to the internet through WiFi or using an Ethernet cable connected to your modem.
2. Open a web browser and type http://192.168.0.1 into the web address field.
3. Log in to the modem's settings interface (Modem GUI) using your Admin Username and Admin Password. Unless you previously changed this information, you can find it on the modem label. Note that these are different from your wireless network name (SSID) and WiFi password (security key).
4. Select the Advanced Setup icon in the main menu.
Then, you can select one of the options below to see additional step-by-step instructions on how to change each setting.
Broadband Settings: Allows you to change the connection parameters to your service provider. These settings should not be changed unless instructed by your ISP.
QoS: Prioritizes traffic types (such as VoIP) before standard data traffic. Traffic shaping your network with QoS can increase application performance and prevent your network from becoming overloaded.
