The model 5715 is an ADSL 2/2+ modem with Ethernet interface to a computer or a router. This model provides a very stable system installation with a simplified set of configuration options to ensure problem-free operation. The Bridge Modem works with any operating system that supports an Internet browser including Windows Macintosh and Linux and comes pre-configured to work with the most popular ADSL service configurations. The model 5715 also supports the use of third party PPPoE client software to provide compatibility with the widest range of service providers. The model 5715 is compatible with older ADSL protocols as well as the new ADSL 2/2+ standards for download speeds of up to 24 Mbps and extended distances at which high data rates can be delivered. For most installations the model 5715 simply plugs into the ADSL-provisioned phone line and uses the factory settings. In the unusual event that the factory default settings need to be changed an easy-to-use graphic interface is accessed using any Web browser software.
