Before You Start
Please read and make sure you understand all the prerequisites for proper installation of your new Router. Have all the necessary information and equipment on hand before beginning the installation.
vii DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Installation Overview
The procedure to install the Router can be described in general terms in the following steps:
1. Gather information and equipment needed to install the device. Before you begin the actual installation
make sure you have all the necessary information and equipment. Check the contents of the package to be certain that everything listed on the packing list is included. A packing list is included at the end of this section. The information you will need includes the account name or number and the password used to gain access to your service providerâ€™s network, and ultimately to the Internet. In addition, some users may be given information used to configure the Router so it can establish a connection to the service providerâ€™s network and the Internet.
2. Install the hardware, that is, connect the Ethernet and telephone cables to the device to establish the
necessary network links to your computer and to the service providerâ€™s network and connect the power adapter to power on the Router.
3. Check the IP settings on your computer and change them if necessary so the computer can access the
web-based software built into the Router. Without the correct IP settings your computer will not be able to communicate with the ddevice or access the software used to configure the Router. Without compatible IP settings on your computer, you will not be able to use a web browser to access the Internet.
4. Use the web-based management software to configure the device to suit the requirements of your
SHDSL account as instructed by your service provider. Some users may not need to change any of the device settings that establish and maintain the network connection. It may only be necessary to supply the user name or number and the password used for your account. Other users may not be required to change anything in the Router but they may need to install software on a computer used to access the Internet. Follow the instructions of your service provider to find out what is required for your account. Requirements for Installation
In order to use SHDSL you must have SHDSL service set up by your service provider. SHDSL operates on a separate physical line from normal voice telephone service therefore you must have a line dedicated for SHDSL in addition to your regular telephone line.
To install and use the Router you need a computer equipped with an Ethernet port (such as an Ethernet NIC) and a web browser. To establish the WAN connection to your ISPâ€™s network, it will be necessary for most users to make some changes to the WAN configuration of the Router. This change may only be to supply a user name and password for your ISP account (see below). Operating System
The Router uses an HTML-based web interface for setup and management. The web configuration manager may be accessed using any operating system capable of running web browser software. Web Browser
Any computer that uses the Router must be able to connect to it through the Ethernet port on the Router. This connection is an Ethernet connection and therefore requires that your computer be equipped with an Ethernet port as well. Most notebook computers are now sold with an Ethernet port already installed. Likewise, most fully assembled desktop computers come with an Ethernet NIC adapter as standard equipment. If your computer does not have an Ethernet port, you must install an Ethernet NIC adapter before you can use the Router. If you must install an adapter, follow the installation instructions that come with the Ethernet NIC adapter.
viii DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Account Information (User Name and Password)
Most users will need to supply a user name and password used to access the service providerâ€™s network (and ultimately, the Internet). This information is stored either in the Routerâ€™s memory or on your computer depending on the type of SHDSL connection profile (encapsulation method) you have.

ix DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide 1
This chapter describes the Router and it features and includes brief introduction to SHDSL. Front and rear panel diagrams are used to illustrate the LED indicators and cable connections. Router Description and Operation
The DSL-1500G SHDSL Router is designed as a gateway for busy networks. It provides upload and download speeds of up to 2.3 Mbps. High speed symmetrical data transmission is ideally suited to business networks using VPN and remote LAN-to-LAN applications, video teleconferencing, web servers, IP telephony and Internet gaming.
The Router is easy to install and use. The DSL-1500G connects to an Ethernet LAN via a standard Ethernet 10BASE-T interface using RJ-45 connectors. The SHDSL connection is made using ordinary twisted-pair telephone line with standard RJ-11 connectors. Enhanced 4-wire SHDSL service requires a special installation. (Ask your service provider about the availability of 4-wire SHDSL service).
Enterprise-grade features on the DSL-1500G provide security, efficiency and reliability for demanding business networks. The Router supports transparent bridging or it can be used for IP packet routing over the Internet. Cost saving features of the Router such as NAT (Network Address Translator) and DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) improve efficiency and security. The advanced security enhancements, packet filtering and port redirection, can help protect your network from potentially devastating intrusions by malicious agents from outside your network. About SHDSL
Symmetric High-Speed Digital Subscriber Line technology is the first international DSL standard developed from the ground up. It represents a very significant improvement over the interim SDSL standard, delivering higher bit rates over longer distances. SHDSL allows telecommunications companies to deliver T1-level data network services at fraction of the cost. The standard has been developed by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) in Geneva Switzerland with cooperation and input from a consortium of telecommunications and computer technology industry leaders.
It is important to note that SHDSL does not support analog splitting technologies and therefore cannot coexist with regular voice telephone service or ISDN installations. Unlike Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) technology, SHDSL requires a separate dedicated physical line (standard twisted-pair copper telephone wire). Plain Old Telephone Services (POTS) cannot share the same line with SHDSL, although IP phones can be used over SHDSL. The standard also allows for extended reach double twisted-pair (4-wire) implementations that can double the bandwidth to up to 4.6 Mbps upstream and downstream.
1 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Product Features
The DSL-1500G SHDSL Router utilizes the latest DSL enhancements and router technologies to provide a robust Internet gateway suitable for most small to medium sized networks. VPN Support
The DSL-1500G SHDSL supports VPN Pass Through for L2TP, PPTP and IP Sec. Firewall Protection
Tailored firewall security features include packet filtering for protocol and IP address and port redirection. DHCP Support (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) automatically and dynamically assigns al LAN IP settings to each host on your network. This eliminates the need to reconfigure every host whenever changes in network topology occur. Network Address Translation (NAT)
For small and medium office networks, the DSL-1500G allows multiple users on the LAN to access the Internet concurrently through a single IP address. This provides Internet access to every workstation using a single Internet account. NAT improves network security in effect by hiding the private network behind one global and visible IP address. NAT address mapping can also be used to link two IP domains via a LAN-to-LAN connection for remote LAN implementations. Static Routing
This allows you to select a data path to a particular network destination that will remain in the routing table and never â€śage outâ€ť. If you wish to define a specific route that will always be used for data traffic from your LAN to a specific destination within your LAN (for example to another router or a server) or outside your network (to a ISP defined default gateway for instance). Multiple Encapsulation Support
The DSL-1500G supports Bridged Ethernet over ATM (RFC2684), IP over ATM (RFC1577) and PPP over ATM (RFC 2364). Precise ATM Traffic Shaping
Traffic shaping is a method of controlling the flow rate of ATM data cells. This function helps to establish the Quality of Service for ATM data transfer. High Performance
Very high symmetric data transfer rates of up to 2.3 Mbps Upstream/Downstream over standard single twisted- pair telephone cable. Up to 4.6 Mbps Upstream/Downstream is possible for double twisted-pair installations. Full Network Management The DSL-1500G incorporates SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) support for web-based management and text-based network management via an RS-232 or Telnet connection. Enable Telnet for remote text-based management access to the Router. Management through the WAN port can be enabled for access from outside the LAN. Easy Installation The DSL-1500G uses a web-based graphical user interface program for convenient management access and easy set up. Any common web browser software can be used to manage the Router

Place the Router in a location where the LED indicators can be easily viewed. Keep the device away from any significant heat source and allow space on the sides and especially above for ventilation. As with any electrical device, place the device in a suitable and safe location. Connect SHDSL Line
Use the DSL cable included with the Router to connect it to the telephone socket dedicated for your SHDSL service. Plug one end of the cable into the DSL port (RJ-11 receptacle) on the rear panel of the Router and insert the other end into the dedicated SHDSL socket. The SHDSL connection represents the WAN interface. It is the physical link to the ISPâ€™s network backbone and ultimately to the Internet. Connect Router to Ethernet
The Router connects directly to Ethernet workstation or to an Ethernet LAN. The RJ-45 ports on the Router are crossed ports (MDI-X) and can be connected to an Ethernet adapter with a straight-through (MDI-II) port using normal straight-through Ethernet cable. Use crossed cable when connecting the Router to a crossed port (MDI-X) on a switch or hub. Use straight-through cable when connecting it to an uplink (MDI-II) port on a hub or switch. A valid connection is indicated if the Ethernet Link LED indicator on the front panel shines steady green. Be sure to use Category 5 or better Ethernet cable.
The rules governing Ethernet cable lengths apply to the four Ethernet ports. Be sure that the cable connecting the Router to other Ethernet devices does not exceed 100 meters. Power On Router
To power on the Router:
1. Insert the AC Power Adapter cord into the power receptacle located on the rear panel of the Router and
plug the adapter into a suitable nearby power source.
2. Turn on the power with the power switch located on the rear panel. 3. You should see the Power LED indicator light up and remain lit. The Status LED should light solid green
and begin to blink after a few seconds.
4. If you have the Router connected to your network you can look at the Ethernet Link/Act LED indicators
to make sure they have valid connections. The Router will attempt to establish the SHDSL connection, if the SHDSL line is connected and the connection is properly configured this should light up after several seconds. Factory Reset Button
The Router may be reset to the original factory default settings by depressing the reset button for a few seconds while the device is powered on. Use a ballpoint or paperclip to push down the reset button. Remember that this will wipe out any settings stored in flash memory including IP settings. The factory default IP address of the Router is 192.168.0.1 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.
6 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide 3 Configuring the Router for the First Time
The first time you setup the Router it is recommended that you configure the WAN connection using a single computer making sure that both the computer and the Router are not connected to the LAN. Once the WAN connection is functioning properly you may continue to change settings to suit your preferences. This chapter is only concerned with establishing the WAN connection. The following chapter, Web-based Management Guide, describes the various menus used to configure and monitor the Router including how to change IP settings and DHCP server setup. Wan Configuration Summary
1. Connect to the Router To configure the WAN connection used by the Router it is first necessary to
communicate with the Router through its management interface, which is HTML-based and can be accessed using a web browser. To access the management software your computer must be able to â€śseeâ€ť the Router. Your computer can see the Router if it is in the same â€śneighborhoodâ€ť or subnet as the Router. This is accomplished by making sure your computer has IP settings that place it in the same subnet as the Router. The easiest way to make sure your computer has the correct IP settings is to configure it to use the DHCP server in the Router. The next section describes how to change the IP configuration for a computer running a Windows operating system to be a DHCP client.
2. Configure the WAN Connection Once your are able to access the configuration software you can
proceed to change the settings required to establish the SHDSL connection and connect to the service providerâ€™s network. There are different methods used to establish the connection to the service providerâ€™s network and ultimately to the Internet. You should know what Encapsulation and connection type you are required to use for your SHDSL service. It is also possible that you must change the PVC settings used for the SHDSL connection. Your service provider should provide all the information you need to configure the WAN connection. Step 1 - Configure IP Settings on Your Computer
In order to configure your system to receive IP settings from the Router it must first have the TCP/IP protocol installed. If you have an Ethernet port on your computer, it probably already has TCP/IP protocol installed. If you are using Windows XP the TCP/IP is enabled by default for standard installations. Below is an illustrated example of how to configure a Windows XP system to automatically obtain IP settings from the Router. Following this example is a step-by-step description of the procedures used on the other Windows operating systems to first check if the TCP/IP protocol has been installed, if it is not instruction are provided for installing it. Once the protocol has been installed you can configure the system to receive IP settings from the Router.
For computers running non-Windows operating systems, follow the instructions for your OS that configure the system to receive an IP address from the Router, that is, configure the system to be a DHCP client.
NOTE: If you are using this Router to provide Internet access for more than one computer, you can use these instructions later to change the IP settings for the other computers. However you cannot use the same IP address since every computer must have its own IP address that is unique
on the local network.

Configuring the WAN Connection (First Time Setup)
When the Router is used to provide Internet access it must first access your service providerâ€™s network, that is, it must communicate with computers and other routers owned by your service provider. These computers and routers then provide access to the Internet. The Router must be configured to communicate with the systems that give it access to the larger network. There are different methods or protocols used to make this communication possible, and both ends of the communication must agree on what method to use and how to set up the connection. This is what you will configure the Router to do, to agree with the service providerâ€™s equipment and negotiate the terms of the connection using a language or protocol that both sides understand.
Sometimes it is also necessary to configure settings that control the SHDSL connection itself. The SHDSL connection is what carries the data from one point to the other. So in addition to telling the Router what method it must use, you may also be asked change the PVC (Permanent Virtual Channel) settings. These settings are defined by two number the VPI (Virtual Path Indicator) and the VCI (Virtual Channel Indicator). Read the section on Connection Profile in the next chapter for information about changing the PVC.
All the information you need to make the changes needed for a functioning WAN connection should have been provided to you by your ISP or network service provider.
To configure the WAN connection, use the Router/Bridge Configuration menu and perform the steps listed below. Some of the settings do not need to be changed when you first set up the device but can be changed later if you choose.
the Connection Profile method used for your connection. The options available are Router with PPoA (default), Router with PPPoE or Bridge with RFC 1483. If your SHDSL service uses a different protocol such as Router with RFC 1483 or Router with IPoA, you must create a new Connection Profile. See the Adding and Changing Connection Profiles section in the next chapter if you are using one of these other protocols.

NOTICE: If you change the Connection Profile, click the OK button without making any other changes. Save the changes and reboot the device.
Upon restarting continue to configure any remaining settings that need to
be changed in the Router/Bridge Configuration Menu as instructed in the
remaining steps below. It will again be necessary to save settings and
restart the Router to establish the WAN connection.
2. The remaining settings that must be configured are different for the different Connection Profile types.

12 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide 4 Web-based Management Guide The DSL-1500G uses an HTML-based graphical user interface (GUI) allowing users to manage the Router from anywhere on the LAN using a standard browser, software such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer. The web browser is used for direct communication with the Router using HTTP protocol. Accessing the Web Manager
In order to use the web-based management software it will be necessary to use a computer that occupies the same subnet as the Router. The simplest way to do this for many users will be to use DHCP server that is enabled by default on the Router. Chapter 3 provides instructions on how to configure a system running Windows operating systems to be DHCP client. You may also manually assign IP settings for the computer so that it resides on the same subnet as the Router. The Router has a default IP address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. If you specify IP settings, use an IP address in the range 192.168.0.2 â€“ 192.168.0.254 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. Once you have accessed the configuration software you can configure the Routerâ€™s IP settings and DHCP server configuration to suit your preferences.
To use the web-based management software run the browser you have installed on your computer and direct it to the Routerâ€™s HTML interface using its LAN IP address. If this is the first time you are accessing the web-based manager you must type its default IP address, 192.168.0.1 in the addressbar of the browser. The URL in the address bar should read: http://192.168.0.1. If you change the IP address you will use the new IP address to access the web-based manager.
In the page that opens, click on the Login button.
A new window will appear and you will be prompted for a user name and password. Use the default user name admin and password admin for first time set up.

14 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Router Configuration
All the settings that define Router operations on both the LAN and WAN can be configured with the menus located in the Configuration folder. These menus are described in the first part of this chapter presented in the same order that they appear in your browser. The Maintenance folder and Summary folder contain menus useful for system upkeep and analysis. These menus are described later in this chapter. The first menu presented when you login is the Router/Bridge Configuration menu used to configure settings for the WAN connection. Router/Bridge Configuration
Use the Router/Bridge Configuration menu to configure the WAN connection. The WAN connection must have the correct Connection Profile including accurate VPI and VCI values. For PPPoA and PPPoE Connection Profiles you must also supply user account information (User Name and Password) to access the service providerâ€™s network. This is NOT the same as the System User Name and Password used to access the web manager of the Router. See the table below for a complete description of the various configurable parameters in the Router/Bridge Configuration menu. Auto-refresh may be disabled to prevent the PPP Information from displaying updates.

If you have enabled the Connect on Demand feature, the Router will begin to negotiate the WAN connection upon restarting. If the Connect on Demand feature has been disabled, click the Connect button to initiate the connection via the WAN interface. The process will take a few seconds. To end the WAN connection, click on the Disconnect button. Bridge Configuration
The DSL-1500 supports RFC 1483 sometimes called Bridged Ethernet. In bridge mode operation the device does not have the same capabilities as it does when operating in router mode. Packet forwarding for a bridge is limited to Layer 2, i.e. MAC address information only. A bridge operation may be appropriate when it is necessary to bridge the WAN and LAN interface in order to support non-IP based protocols. Bridge mode may also be best suited for LAN-to-LAN operations.

It is also possible to obtain IP settings for the WAN interface from a DHCP server. If you have DHCP service for the WAN interface IP settings, check the DHCP client option.
18 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Adding and Changing Connection Profiles
Use the Connection Profile menu to add new profiles or change existing profiles. Creating a new connection profile is necessary if your DSL service uses protocols that are not offered through the default Router/Bridge Configuration menu. If it is necessary to change the PVC settings (the VPI and VCI values) for the DSL connection, this is done using the Connection Profile menu. Do not change the VPI or VCI values unless you receive explicit instructions to do so from your service provider. When a new connection profile is created it is necessary to save the new profile and reboot the device before it can be selected in the Configuration menu. To create a new Connection Profile: click any hyperlinked index number for an undefined profile from the list, a new menu appears (see below). To change an existing Connection Profile: click the hyperlinked index number the listed profile, a new menu appears (see below). NOTE: Connection profiles additions and changes must be saved and the device must be rebooted before it can be used in the Router/Bridge Configuration menu.

24 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide NAT Configuration
Network Address Translation (NAT) is a routing protocol that allows your network to become a private network that is isolated from, yet connected to the Internet. It does this by changing the IP address of packets from a global IP address usable on the Internet to a local IP address usable on your private network (but not on the Internet) and vice-versa. The Router allows up to 128 host IP addresses.
NAT has two major benefits. First, NAT allows many users to access the Internet using a single global IP address. This can greatly reduce the costs associated with Internet access and helps alleviate the current shortage of Internet IP addresses. Secondly, the NAT process creates an added degree of security by hiding your private network behind one IP address. The NAT function will normally only allow incoming packets that are generated in response to a request from a host within the LAN.
If your network uses web servers, FTP servers or other proxies used for data requests from outside the private network, you can use NAT in conjunction with Port Redirection to allow appropriate use of your servers by outside users. See the section on Port Redirection for more information.
For the purposes of network administration, NAT is almost indispensable. Hosts and servers on the internal network can be moved easily. Using NAT together with DHCP can greatly reduce the workload of a network manager while allowing tremendous flexibility.
To view the NAT Configuration menu, click on the NAT Configuration button:
NAT Configuration Menu
The following parameters can be configured using the NAT Configuration menu:
Default = enabled. Select enabled or disabled to enable or disable the NAT NAT Function
Default = disabled. Select enabled or disabled to enable or disable the DMZ DMZ State
With the DMZ State enabled, type in the LAN IP address of a designated DMZ IP Address
DMZ device (see explanation below).
For users with multiple PVC accounts, you can configure NAT for each Interface
profile. NAT is enabled by default for any additional profiles.
25 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide DMZ IP Address
NAT may conflict with certain interactive applications such as video conferencing or playing Internet video games. For these applications, a NAT bypass can be set up using a DMZ IP address. The DMZ IP address is a â€śvisibleâ€ť address and does not benefit from the full protection of the NAT function. Therefore it is advisable that other security precautions be enabled to protect the other computers and devices on the LAN. It may be wise to isolate the device with the DMZ IP address from the rest of the LAN.
For example, if you want to use video conferencing and still use NAT, you can use the DMZ IP address function. In this case, you must have a PC or server through which video conferencing will take place. The IP address of this PC or server will then be the DMZ IP address. You can designate the serverâ€™s IP address as the DMZ by typing in the IP address in the DMZ IP Address space provided and clicking the OK button.
For the system that uses the DMZ IP address, you may want to manually assign an IP address to it and adjust your DHCP server addresses so that the DMZ IP address is not included in the DHCP server range. This way you avoid possible IP address problems if you reboot the DMZ system.
IP Masquerade Pass Through
Since certain protocols have difficulty operating in conjunction with NAT, the Router can forward these packets without subjecting them to NAT address mapping. In particular, IPsec (a special network security protocol) and PPTP (a tunneling protocol used for virtual private networks) are not compatible with NAT. For this reason, the Router is configured to allow them to pass by default. You may disable this using the IP Masquerade Pass Through menu. To block in effect either packet type while NAT is running you must deselect the type here and click the OK button.
IP Masquerade Pass Through
26 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide IP Masquerade Timer
The IP Masquerade Timer is used to control how frequently the IP Masquerade table is updated. The IP Masquerade table is used to map the internal LAN IP addresses to the external WAN global IP address used for your account. If you are familiar with Ethernet switching, you can think of the IP Masquerade Timer as being similar to a MAC address table timeout in a switch.
IP Masquerade Timer
To change the IP Masquerade for the default settings, select the time for TCP or UDP packets from their respective drop-down menus and click the OK button.
27 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Port Redirection
Port Redirection Menu
The Port Redirection feature of the Router is used in conjunction with NAT or IP Masquerading to improve security and efficiency. Port redirection can be used to direct potentially hazardous packets to a proxy server outside your firewall. For example, you can configure the Router to direct HTTP packets to a designated HTTP server in the DMZ. Other common applications might include directing incoming SMTP packets to an Email server for data scrutiny and improved network efficiency.
Port Redirection can be used to redirect TCP or UDP packets to a specified port and a specified IP address on your local network. You can define a set of instructions for a specific incoming port or for a range of incoming ports. Each instruction set or rule is indexed and can be modified or deleted later as needed.
The user changeable variables available for Port Redirection are listed in the table below.
28 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide
Port redirection is universally enabled or disabled for the Router with the Port Redirection State drop-down menu. The Existing Entry number tells you how many sets currently are configured. The Valid Entry number tells you the number of sets that are active.

30 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Advanced Filter & Firewall
One of the most important elements of any network security implementation is the firewall. Packet filtering is a basic firewall security measure and should be used on any network that is exposed to security risk. A packet filter system examines data packets and scrutinizes them in order to control network access. Filtering rules determine whether packets are passed through the Router from either side of the gateway. The rules are created and controlled by the network administrator and can be precisely defined. These rules are used to block access to the LAN from outside the network and/or to deny access to the WAN from within the network. The Router uses filtering rules to examine data packet headers for specific information. Packets passing through the Router that do not meet the criteria specified by the rule set are dropped.
In order to improve network security without severely limiting network efficiency, it is important to carefully plan the sets of access rules. Effective implementation of packet filtering requires detailed knowledge of network services and communication protocols. An overly complicated filtering scheme can adversely affect Router performance, while an inadequate set of rules may needlessly compromise security.
Filtering rules can be precisely defined based upon source and destination IP address, as well as port and protocol information.
Filter & Firewall Main Menu
The Existing Entry number tells you how many routes are currently configured. The Valid Entry number tells you the number of routes that are enabled. Filtering can be universally enabled or disabled with the drop-down IP Filter State drop-down menu.

ATM loopback tests are used to verify connectivity and path integrity along a specified ATM circuit. In the test, a cell is sent to an endpoint or to the end of the first segment of the ATM path. If the path is available and the connections are functioning, an test cell will be returned along the same ATM path and be detected by the device. This is very similar to a Ping test. The test can help to determine if connectivity problems originate from outside the LAN.
ATM Loopback Screen
To perform the test, define the following parameters: VPI
Type in the VPI setting used for the network connection. VCI
Type in the VCI setting used for the network connection.
Choose F4 (Virtual Path) or F5 (Virtual Connection) from the pull-down menu to define the flow type. An F4 flow test is used to verify that ATM network information (ATM cells) can be shared between network elements. This information is used within virtual paths to report an unavailable path or a virtual path that cannot be F4/F5
guaranteed. An F5 flow test is also used to verify that ATM network information can be shared between network elements. This information is used within virtual connections to report degraded virtual channel performance such as late arriving cells, lost cells, and cell insertion problems.
Select the test type from the remaining pull-down menu. Choose End-to-End to test etoe/segment the entire path from the Router to the ATM connection endpoint. Choose segment
to test the path from the Router to the end of the first ATM connection segment.
A success or fail message appears here after the test is completed. If the reply cell is received within the standard-defined time, the Status will read OK. This indicates Status
that the specified test path is functioning normally and all connections were successful. If the Status reads Fail, there is a fault in the segment or path tested.
When all the test parameters have been specified, click on the Loop Test button to initiate the test.

39 DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide SHDSL Line Setting
If your SHDSL connection is disconnected or the connection is faulty, you can try to reconnect using the SHDSL Line Setting menu. The SHDSL/Link LED Indicator will light green if you have a viable SHDSL link. You can also look at the Summary statistics and Line Condition windows to diagnose problems with the SHDSL connection.
To reestablish the SHDSL connection, click the Retrain button. The Router will initiate a new attempt to negotiate and establish the SHDSL connection. If this fails, check to make sure you are using the correct PVC (VPI/VCI) settings and restart the Router. If problems persist, call your ISP or SHDSL service provider. Inability to initiate or maintain the SHDSL link may indicate a problem at the other end (DSLAM) of the SHDSL connection.
