To use it properly need to configure:

  1. Access the configuration menu of the modem

  2. Change the password for access to our modem so that other people can access and change configurations

  3. If you want to use eMule and aMule (Linux version) should open the doors of communication to get a high ID.

  4. Setting up a WiFi connection for secure access

  6. Configure CISCO SYSTEM VPN Client

Here's how to do.

Remember that after any change you must save it by press SAVE SETTINGS.
that when you press SAVE SETTINGS is necessary wait some second before that the modem accepts another selection.

Access the configuration menu of the modem To access our modem we have to open Internet Explorer or Mozilla or browser we use and in the address bar we write:
after which there will appear the screen fig.1 where to put the default password of modems.


The defaults are:
Username: admin
Password: admin

After the login, the new screen that appears is the main menu of the modem, shown in fig.2

The box named Idle Time Out if there are not activity, after the time specified the logout is done.
During the setup of the modem I suggest to disable the TimeOut (put 0 in the box) and after the setup I suggest to enable TimeOut again.

Use eMule and aMule (Linux version) with a high ID

To get an access to your files faster than with eMule and aMule we should get a high ID and to do that we must make passing the channels of communication used outwards.
To do so from the main menu of the modem (Fig. 2) select the UPnP and Enable it (fig.4).


Of course, it is also necessary configure aMule or eMule to use UPnP, see fig.4.1

Setting up a WiFi connection for secure access

It 'a good idea to configure the WiFi network in order to have an access to the safest possible though, remember always, WiFi networks are always to be decrypted, the secure access is to connected the PC to the cable modem.
Usually the Libero modem comes with WiFi free access that allows anyone in the area to connect to our modem.
The advice is to change the access WiFi enabling WEP encryption.
Usual from the main menu (fig.2) Select Wireless and from the menu that appears (fig.5) ensure that Wireless is enable.


Next click on Channel and SSID and ensure that ESSID Broadcast is Enable, fig.6.


Net click on Security and select WEP Only, fig.7.


Next click on WEP and configure as fig.8, in the box named Key 1 insert a password of 13 character and press SAVE SETTINGS.


Configure your Username and Password to access to WIND - LIBERO - INFOSTRADA

From the main page press WAN and from the new page that appear press ATM PVC.
The page that appear is show in fig.9

Now press on VC1 and the new menu that appear is show in fig.10 (red circle).
In this menu insert your USERNAME and PASSWORD.
At the end press SAVE SETTINGS.

Configure CISCO SYSTEM VPN Client

Now open your VPN Client and select your default connection, fig.12 red arrow A.
Next selec Modify (fig.12 read arrow B) and from the new men¨ that appear press Transport (fig.12 rea arrow C) and annotate the number of TCP Port (fig.12 red arrow D) and must shure that is selected ISPSec over TCP (fig.12 red arrow E).
