Internet and telephony configuration
Step 1 — Accessing the modem
Start a web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, ...). Enter the default interface address http://192.168.1.1 as the website address.
B-box 3 is protected by default. The default password is printed on a label you may find in the bottom of the modem.
Here is the first page you see when you access the B-box 3:
Select User and introduce a password (case sensitive) printed on a sticker. Click on Next to continue.
Note: You cannot switch the language on this page. You need to log in first.
Step 2 — Main menu
Now you arrive on the main page.
You can change the language in the top right if you need it.
The modem is available in English (the default one), French and Dutch.
You can see the following menus:
- Network Connectivity: to establish a PPP connection.
- Access control: to configure Parental control, Firewall level, DMZ host, port forwarding, and remote management.
- My Modem: to find some general info (firmware version, uptime, etc), LAN sharing option, DHCPv4 parameters, DynDNS configuration, and Maintenance (to reboot or reset the modem).
- Wi-Fi: to configure the wireless network.
- Ethernet: to check the port status (UP or down, if a device is connected or not) and also the traffic usage on that port.
- USB: to check if there's any USB device connected to it.
- Telephone: to configure the VOIP account, and, if you click on Phone 1 or Phone 2, see the call history for that number.
Step 3 — Internet Configuration
In order to configure the PPP connection you should take the following steps:
Select Network Connectivity and Click on under the sub menu Internet
You’ll see a following unfolding menu:
Note: The modem is by default in Bridge Mode. You have not only to type your username and password, but also enable PPP (select Enable in the menu below).
Click once it’s done.
You will be redirected to the main menu. If you click back on Network connectivity you will see that the modem is connected. You could also see an IP address you got:
Step 4 — VoIP Configuration
In the main menu select Telephony or click on :
You'll see the following:
First of all, you should select Enable on top.
After that, enter the complete configuration for your VoIP telephone number:
Domain: sip.edpnet.be or voip.edpnet.be
Telephone no: your phone number
Username: your phone number
Password: the password provided by edpnet.
Click at the bottom right.
Once it’s done you will be redirected to the main menu. If you click back on Telephony, you will see that the line status is now UP.
You don't have to reboot the modem after having configured the VoIP account. However, you can always do it if you're experiencing any problems (e.g. the line status isn't coming UP).
