It's a complete router with many possibilities. It offers four gigabit Ethernet ports, two RJ-11 ports for IP telephony, two USB 2.0 ports for connecting printers or hard drives, and two-band WiFi (2.4 and 5 GHz).
How to configure the Jazztel LiveBox Fiber or LiveBox + router
Now that you know which Jazztel router is installing its fiber optic clients, it's time to switch to flour and see how the most common configurations of the device are configured.
Access the router's administration
To be able to configure it, the first thing to do is to access the team's administration panel. This is something quite simple and does not differ from the steps to be followed in the other models.
When the router is connected and operational, connect to your computer via an Ethernet cable or WiFi connection and open your favorite browser.
Once open, type http: // liveboxfibra or http://192.168.1.1 in the address bar and press Enter to load the admin page.
Once inside, you will need to login to access them. You will see that the admin user is already entered by default and you just have to enter the password you can find on the bottom of the router (This is the same as WiFi networks).
Once identified, you can continue to modify all the router settings to customize it: change the name of the WiFi network, open the ports, change the password to access the device, etc., etc.
Configure the WiFi network
Once in the configuration of the router, I advise you to start by changing the name and password of WiFi networks. This process is simple and will make it easier for you to locate your network, as well as making it easier to connect, since you will use the password of your choice.
The first thing to do is to access the router by following the steps in the previous section. Once inside, click on Wi-Fi, then choose the main Wi-Fi menu that will appear on the left.
In the new screen, you will have to name the two bands of the WiFi network. Simply click on the Wi-Fi Name (SSID) box and enter the name of your choice. You can use the same name in both networks and at the end of the 5 GHz band for you to differentiate them.
Once the name is changed, you will find below the box to set the password. In this section, I recommend using a password of more than 12 digits and which also combines upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols.
In the Security Mode section, choose WPA2 AES on both networks. This way, it will be more difficult for someone to decrypt your password and access your network without permission.
Finally, save the changes. When you see that the WiFi network changes its name, you will lose the connection if you were connected via this network. You will need to manually reconnect with the new password.
If you use P2P services, have a home server for any service, NAS, or you generally play, you probably need to open a port on the router. The LiveBox Jazztel Fiber allows you to do this and the steps to follow are as follows.
Once in the router's control panel, click advanced configuration, and then choose the network configuration on the left side. Now click on the NAT / PAT tab and choose NAT / PAT Cnfiguration option.
Now you can start adding all the ports you need to open. For this, you must use the form below. You must choose the application for which you are going to open the port, then enter the port in the internal port and external port boxes (you can also enter a range, putting the first and last ports separated by a dash. ;union).
Finally, select the protocol you want to use (TPC, UDP or both) and choose the device to which you want to redirect the port (the computer, NAS, console, etc.). Click Add to have the changes saved to the router configuration and the port forwarding start working.
Change the router access password
The last parameter that I recommend you change before you start using the router is normally the password. Do not forget that anyone connecting to the WiFi network can access the control panel. It is therefore best to have your own password.
To do this, you only need to access the router's configuration, and then select the advanced configuration option. Once inside, click on Administration and fill in the three boxes you will see: current password and new password twice.
The current password is the same as the one you used to access the router and you can find it at the bottom of the router. For the new password, try using a long and secure password. Use uppercase and lowercase letters, symbols, and numbers for easy decryption.
