Features of the Built-In Firewall in Alcatel SpeedTouch Pro

Do I need a firewall with the Alcatel ADSL modem? Can I disable it?

No, actually you don’t need the firewall. After converting your SpeedTouch Home modem to the Pro version, a firewall (built-in in the modem) is activated by default. You can check this by using software like Zone Alarm to see if attacks take place. You can also check this within the modem:

  1. Open a telnet session to the modem (“start” – “run” – “telnet 10.0.0.138”).
  2. When asked for a username, type your username and password (the one you’ve configured here Upgrade from Alcatel SpeedTouch Home to Pro)
