Wired Network Setup
This section shows you how to set up a DSL or Ethernet Internet connection with the Broadband screens. The screens vary by the connection mode, encapsulation type and IP mode (IPv6 or IPv4) you select.
Set the Zyxel Device to Routing mode or Bridge mode on this connection as follows:
Use Routing mode if you want the Zyxel Device to use routing mode functions such as NAT, Firewall, or DHCP Server. You will need to reconfigure your network if you have an existing router.
Use Bridge mode to pass the ISP-assigned IP address(es) to your devices connected to the LAN port. All traffic from the Internet passes through the Zyxel Device directly to devices connected to the LAN port. Use this mode if you already have a router with complete routing functions in your network.
Setting Up a DSL Connection
This tutorial shows you how to set up a DSL Internet connection using the Web Configurator on DSL routers (see Overview).
If you connect to the Internet through a DSL connection, use the information from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to configure the Broadband screens.
1 Go to Network Setting > Broadband and then the following screen appears. Click Add New WAN Interface.

Set the IPv4/IPv6 Mode to IPv4 Only.
3 Enter the account information provided by your DSL service provider.
4 Enable Apply as Default Gateway to use this rule as your default Internet connection. Then select Use Following Static DNS Address and enter the DNS server addresses provided by your DSL service provider.
5 For the rest of the fields, use the default settings.
6 Click Apply to save your settings.
7 Try to connect to a website to see if you have correctly set up your Internet connection.
The new connection is displayed on the Broadband screen.

Setting Up an Ethernet Connection
If you connect to the Internet through an Ethernet connection, you need to connect a broadband modem or router with Internet access to the WAN Ethernet port on the Zyxel Device. You need to configure the Internet settings from the broadband modem or router on the Zyxel Device. First, make sure you have Internet access through the broadband modem or router by connecting directly to it.
This example shows you how to configure an Ethernet WAN connection.
1 Make sure you have the Ethernet WAN port connect to a modem or router.
2 Go to Network Setting > Broadband and then the following screen appears. Click Add New WAN Interface to add a WAN connection.
Routing Mode
