The following details the steps you need to make your router ready for use with the Cerberus NetSTATS broadband monitoring service.

It is recommended that you connect your computer directly to the device to make the configuration changes. This may require you to change the IP address of your computer to be able to contact the router on its management IP. Please review configuration support documentation for your own operating system on how to do this.

Once connected to the router follow the steps below. The lines of configuration you need to add are as follows for NAT or bridged (depending on your requirements. Edit the text in a text editor to replace the text in blue with your own values as appropriate before you use it in the steps below.
