SpeedTouch modems

 

Alcatel SpeedTouch Home

The Alcatel SpeedTouch Home can be upgraded and used as a shared device.

 

 

SpeedTouch 500 series

The Thomson SpeedTouch 510 is a multi-user ADSL gateway with a built in firewall. Various configuration modes are possible.

Works fine with Windows XP and Vista Home Premium.

 

Before you proceed with upgrades, keep in mind these basic rules:

1 never change the configuration settings if your modem is working well,

2 before making any changes, make sure you have a backup of the original settings,

3 after making any configuration changes, check if your connection is still safe and no security holes exist to your LAN.

 

sttoolUpgrades of the  SpeedTouch Home, SpeedTouch 510, SpeedTouch 510v4 have been succesfully implemented in SoHo environments.

Various configuration modes are possible to configure the SpeedTouch in bridged or NAPT (Network Address & Port Translation) mode.

Note that for France you should configure the PPP connection with VPI 8 / VCI 35 !

VPN Clients

Many enterprises deploy Virtual Private Networks (VPN). To connect your PC to their gateway, you must use a VPN client software. The Alcatel Secure VPN client and the NetScreen Remote VPN client software work fine with the Alcatel Speed Touch Home and with the Thomson SpeedTouch 510 . Keep in mind that you need to load Security Policies that match your network provider’s VPN gateways.

The NetScreen Remote VPN client software works fine with the US Robotics Broadband router (USR8000). The Alcatel Secure VPN client software, however does not work with the US Robotics Broadband router (USR8000) but will work with the Netgear Broadband router (here’s looking at you, Dave).
