The problem most people have is that once you've connected the modem and router together, you are unable to access the modem configuration page. Since both of this device use the same
IP address (192.168.1.1) to access the configuration page, you'll only be able to access the router configuration page only after everything is connected.

2. Add some settings to make things work
