Scroll down to IP CONFIGURATION and select DYNAMIC.
Scroll down to DNS CONFIGURATION and select STATIC.

On the next page, click once again on SAVE AND RESTART.
You should now see the congratulations screen. Wait until the modem is fully rebooted (the Power Light should become green steady).
Your Power and your DSL lights should be steady green. Your Internet light should also turn green steady a couple of seconds later.
If you can see all three lights – Power, DSL and Internet – green and steady, then you should be connected successfully to the Internet.
