ADSL Setup in PA LAB

Diagram ===========>>>>>>
Attachment "ADSL.jpg"can be seen at the bottom of the page.


Currently Two ADSL(NTT Flets) lines are available in PA LAB

The ADSL setup is ready for ethernet as well as wireless network for test.

The ADSL through ethernet can be tested by connecting to the 3Com switch(Auto-speed, Auto-duplex). Users who need to test ADSL, can cotact the system Administrator or Network team for the switch and connectivity

Ethernet test requirement :

Just Enable DHCP and connect the cable to the switch.

Wireless test requirement :

Users need to register their MAC address, as like other access points.
  • Enable DHCP
  • SSID : ADSL
  • Encryption Key (128 bit) : Contact system administrator

Either Hexadecimal or ASCII can be used for encryption key.
