ABOUTTHEPRODUCT1

You have purchased the ADC Megabit Modem 400F that connects your Ethernet LAN to service providers for instant and high-speedaccess to the Internet or to other types of Wide Area Network (WAN) applications.

The modem provides this service over a single-pairtelephone line with downstream ADSL transmission up to 7.552 Mbps. The upstream ADSL transmission is up to 928 kbps. You can also receive telephone service over the samesingle-pairline as your data.

420F

The Megabit Modem 400F uses ATM over DMT ADSL technology to provide this high-speedtransmission between the modem and the service provider. Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) provides transmission offixed-sizecells over preestablished connections for a network interface that is predetermined and always in place. The Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) providesrate-adaptivetransmission which means that the service provider can deliver the best possible transmission rate to you based on distance and line conditions, in addition to providing phone service to you over the samesingle-pairline.

The Megabit Modem 400F is easy to install and configure. To install the modem:

connect a telephone cable from the modem to a wall phone jack for ADSL service

connect a cable from the modem to a PC or an Ethernet hub for LAN service

connect a power cable to a local power source

To configure the modem, launch a Web browser on your PC and load the Megabit Modem Configuration and Management Tool Web pages that guide you through configuration. Use the Web page called EasySession™ to configure up to 32 simultaneous sessions with service providers. You can also configure other system parameters and monitor ADSL, LAN, and other networking functions using the Web pages.

LEDs on the modem front panel provide continual status at-a-glancefor network and modem connections.
