576 wireless modem

Hi, this 576 modem as you know is configured to AOL. I'm with Pipex on regular broadband. Does resetting the modem really restore factory settings thus enabling install? Will I need a driver for it as theĀ ISP CD is for the 330 USB modem. Basically I've not got a clue. Any help appreciated. Thanks

I found these instructions for resetting the router to the defualt settings:
Use the "Backup Settings" tool to save the Broadband Router's current configuration to a file named "config.bin" on your PC. You can then use the "Restore Settings" tool to restore the saved configuration of the Broadband Router that you set before. Alternately, you can use the "Restore to Factory Defaults" tool to force the Broadband Router to perform reset and restore the original factory settings.
􀁺 Restore Factory Default
To restore the factory default settings of the Broadband Router, click on the "Restore" button.
􀁺 Backup Settings
Press the "Backup Settings" button to save the current setting in a filed "config.bin" or given filename.
􀁺 Restore Settings
To restore the backup file to the Broadband Router, enter the path and filename on the restore settings.

AOL DSL Plus


AOL DSL+ now uses PPPoE for authentication bypassing the client software. To set up your router: Step 1 Log into the web-based configuration of your router by opening a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape and enter the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1). Enter admin for username and then your password (blank by default). Configure the WAN side to use PPPoE. Please consult your manual for login instructions since all routers are not the same. Step 2 Enter your screen name followed by @aol.com for the user name. Enter your AOL password in the password box. Step 3 You will have to set the MTU to 1400. AOL DSL does not allow for anything higher than 1400. Step 4 Apply settings. Step 5 Unplug (turn off) the power to the modem and router. Wait 1 minute and then power on only the modem. Wait about 1 minute and then power on the router. NOTE: If you connect to the Internet with a different Internet service provider and want to use the AOL software, you can do that without configuring the router?s firewall settings. You need to configure the AOL software to connect using TCP/IP (LAN). Contact AOL for more specific configuration information of their software.
