How to configure a CBRAS connection on your modem

BRAS (or B-RAS) stands for "broadband remote access server." CBRAS is a specialized Brightspeed server that allows multiple sources of internet traffic (cable, DSL or broadband wireless) to converge in a single network, routing traffic to and from remote access devices. 


Caution! The CBRAS configuration will typically only be used by some Static IP customers. We recommend that you do not change the settings below unless advised to do so by a technician.
