If you have previously configured your Broadmax using the above instructions, this will be “” . A networking username and password box should appear. Enter the login name and password for your Broadmax. Click “OK”. Once you have this done; it will bring you to the “Linkmax HSA300A Configuration” page. User/Pass: broadmax

  • Click on the link labeled “Modem / Router Configuration.”

  • On the “Linkmax HSA300A Configuration” page select the “Bridged (RFC 1483)” option and then click the “Configure” button. The “Bridge Configuration” page should appear

  • The “Modem IP Address” should be specified to The “Subnet Mask” should be specified as The “VPI/VCI” should be specified as 0/35 on all newer DSL circuits and 8/35 on older DSL circuits. Click the “Save” Button.
