I cannot find the settings I want to change. Certain options I need to choose are not available.


Router models CTR35 and MBR95 have two configuration modes: Basic and Advanced. In Basic mode many settings are hidden to make the router’s interface easier to navigate, but sometimes it may be necessary to make configuration changes which would require the Advanced mode to be turned on. This article describes how to toggle between Basic and Advanced configuration modes.
