Connect to web interface
The Motorola 2247-62 ADSL/ADSL2 modem/routers shipped by Sonic.net act as NAT routers with DHCP by default. To access the internal web interface, take the following steps:
- Connect the client computer directly to the 2247-62
- Configure the client computer to use
- IP: 192.168.1.5
- Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
- Gateway: 192.168.1.254
This can typically be accomplished by allowing the client computer to acquire its IP information via DHCP.
Set to bridged mode
- Open the web browser of your preference and surf to http://192.168.1.254/
- You will be prompted to set a new admin password.
- After setting a new password, it will prompt you to type in the new password. The username will be admin. After logging in, it will automatically attempt to auto-sense the connection type. If it is hanging on this process, you can bypass it by passing the start button on the left hand side.
- You should be directed to the main page. This will include information regarding your sync status, WAN-side IP address and gateway, speed, attenuation, and local router information.
- For advanced changes such as disabling the NAT router capabilities of the 2247-62, you need to log into Expert Mode in the left-hand navigation section. You will be warned that changing your settings can cause the device to become unresponsive. You must confirm you intention to enter Expert Mode to continue.
- To set the 2247-62 to behave purely as a bridge, select "Configure" and then "Connection" in the left-hand navigation. Change the Bridging pull-down menu to "Enabled" and click "Save Changes."
- Other configuration possibilities for the Motorola 2247-62 are beyond the scope of this document.
- A flashing red DSL light indicates that the Motorola 2247-62 has attempted to synchronize three times and failed
- An unlit DSL light indicates that no DSL signal was detected
- Power indicates power
- DSL indicates synchronization with the DSLAM
- Ethernet indicates ethernet link
- Internet indicates PPP connection
- This documentation applies only to Sonic.net-distributed Motorola 2247-62 model ADSL modems. Those provided by other companies may behave differently.
- Motorola 2247-62 ADSL modems act as NAT routers providing local addresses via DHCP when shipped.
- Motorola 2247-62 ADSL modems do not respond to ICMP echo requests by default.
- After a brownout, the Motorola 2247-62 may have its DSL light show as solid green but still lose sync. Powercycling will fix this.
