This appendix is intended to help you troubleshoot problems you may encounter while setting up and using 
Netopia Firmware Version 8.6.1. It also includes information on how to contact Netopia Technical Suppor t.
Impor tant information on these problems can be found in the event histories kept by the Router. These event 
histories can be accessed in the Statistics & Logs screen.
This section covers the following topics:
Configuration Problems
If you encounter problems during your initial configuration process, review the following suggestions before 
calling for technical suppor t. There are four zones to consider when troubleshooting initial configuration:
1.
The computer’s connection to the gateway
2.
The gateway’s connection to the telecommunication line(s)
3.
The telecommunication line’s connection to your ISP
4.
The ISP’s connection to the Internet
If the connection from the computer to the gateway was not successful, verify that the following conditions are 
in effect:
The Router is turned on. 
An Ethernet cable connects your PC’s Ethernet card or built-in Ethernet por t to the Router.
Telnet is available on your PC or Macintosh. (On a PC, it must be specified in your system path. You can 
usually find the application as “c:\windows\telnet.exe”.)
Your PC or Macintosh is properly configured for TCP/IP.
Your PC or Macintosh has an IP address.
Your PC or Macintosh has a subnet mask that matches or is compatible with the Router’s subnet mask.
