This modem is highly configurable by ISPs so this may not even work for some. If you don't know what you're doing - DON'T DO THIS. You may be charged for replacement if you muck it up.
AND DON'T SAY YOU HAVEN'T BEEN WARNED.
1). Your source IP *must* be in the 192.168.1.x subnet. Statically set a PC to something like 192.168.1.5 (not .1, that's the modem).
2). Telnet to 192.168.1.1 with a password of "mspgzyx".
My version is stuck in BRIDGE mode, regardless the setting.
Other ISP versions (and possibly other EL/Covad versions for that matter) may vary widely from this.NOTE:
To get your ADSL Line Stats run the commands that are in bold
seen in the Telnet output shown below:

near-end fast channel bit rate: 3008 kbps
