8. At the Configuration Page, click on WAN and edit 0/100 under VPI/VCI
(Please note: I'm here in Cavite so I need to edit 0/100. In some places, you may need to edit 0/35 instead.)

9. Click Next.
10. Select MAC Encapsulation Routing (MER) and under Encapsulation Mode select LLC/SNAP-Bridging. Click Next.

11. Click Next
