Features and applications
The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl's wide range of features makes it ideal for a large number
of applications:
Internet access
The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl allows several users access to the Internet simultaneously.
u Since many ADSL providers permit communication with end users via the PPPoA pro-
tocol, the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl has an integrated client for this protocol. It is
therefore no longer necessary to install this service on your PC.
u The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl supports shared Internet access for up to 253 users.
This means several users in your network can surf the Internet simultaneously, all
using the same Internet account.
u The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl allows the connection of a set-top box which enables
you to watch Internet television (IPTV).
Setting up a local area network
The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl offers the following possibilities:
u Up to four devices (PCs, a Hub or Switch) connected via Ethernet ports with a trans-
mission speed of 10 or 100 Mbps (with automatic recognition).
u Up to 253 mobile terminals connected via a wireless interface with a transmission
speed of up to 54 Mbps. It complies with IEEE 802.11g standard and can work with
all products that satisfy WLAN Standard IEEE 802.11b or 802.11g.
u Using the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl makes it easy to set up a network at home or in
small offices. For example, users can exchange data in the network.

Security functions
The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl offers comprehensive security measures:
u Firewall protection against unauthorised access from the Internet
With the firewall, the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl offers comprehensive protection
against hacker attacks.
u Network Address Translation (NAT)
All PCs in the local area network use the Public IP address of the Gigaset SE587 WLAN
dsl for their Internet connections, which makes them 'invisible' on the Internet. The
Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl only allows access from the Internet if this has been
requested from within the local area network.
u DMZ (Exposed Host)
This allows you to release one PC in your local area network for unlimited access
from the Internet. Note that in this case your local area network will no longer be
adequately protected against Internet attacks.
u Service filtering and domain blocking
The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl can filter Internet access. Here you determine which
PCs may access which Internet services.
Additionally you can disable access to certain Internet domains (URL blocking).
u Encryption for the wireless network
The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl is delivered with a preset individual encryption
(WPA2-PSK/WPA-PSK with pre-shared key). You will find the corresponding information on the label on the bottom of the device. Your wireless network is therefore protected against unauthorised access.
If there are wireless network adapters of your PCs that do not support this encryption
method, you can use another encryption method (WEP) to prevent unauthorised
access to your wireless LAN or to make data illegible to unauthorised parties (see
page 23).
Configuring the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl
Having performed the installation steps on the set-up CD, your Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl
is now ready for use. No further configuration is normally required.
Your device is also preconfigured with individual security settings (SSID and encryption)
for secure wireless operation.
However, if you want to change specific configuration settings or make advanced configuration changes to your Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl, a browser-based configuration
user interface is provided which can be operated via your Internet browser. This is
described from page 10 onwards.
In addition, the user interface provides detailed status information on operation and
configuration and offers helpful administration options. These are described in the
chapters "Status information" on page 12 and "Administration" on page 30.

Defining the private IP address for the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl
On this screen you can change the device's Private IP address. The preset IP address is
192.168.1.1. This is the address under which the device can be reached in the local network. It can be freely assigned from the block of available addresses. The IP address
under which the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl can be reached from outside is assigned by
Tiscali. The default Subnet mask for the local network administered by the Gigaset
SE587 WLAN dsl is 255.255.255.0.
ì If you want to assign a different IP address to the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl, enter
your chosen IP address in the fields next to Local IP address.
Make sure you note which subnet mask is set when assigning the IP address. If you
are retaining the default subnet mask, the first three parts of the IP address must be
identical for all network components (including routers).
We recommend using an address from a block that is reserved for private use. This
address block is 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.255.254.
ì Adjust the Subnet Mask if necessary.
The Subnet mask specifies how many address parts of the IP address must be identical for all network components (including routers).
Note:
u You can only change the last part of the subnet mask at the moment (even if further parts are displayed as editable).
u New settings can only be made after the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl has been
rebooted. If necessary reconfigure the IP address on your PC (including one that
is statically assigned) so that it matches the new configuration.
Configuring the DHCP server
The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl has a DHCP server for which the factory setting is active.
Consequently, the IP addresses of the PCs are automatically assigned by the Gigaset
SE587 WLAN dsl.
Note:
u If the DHCP server for the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl is activated, you can configure
the network setting on the PC so that the option Obtain an IP address automatically is set up. For further information, refer to the section "Local network configuration" on page 36.
u If you deactivate the DHCP server, you will have to assign a static IP address for the
PCs that use the network settings.
ì To activate the DHCP server, select ON.
If the DHCP server is active, you can define the IP address range the DHCP server should
use for assigning IP addresses to the clients.

Applications and Gaming
The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl comes equipped with the NAT (Network Address Translation) function. With address mapping, several users in the local network can access the
Internet via one or more public IP addresses. All the local IP addresses are assigned to
the router's public IP address by default.
One of the characteristics of NAT is that data from the Internet is not allowed into the
local network unless it has been explicitly requested by one of the PCs in the network.
Most Internet applications can run behind the NAT firewall without any problems. For
example, if you request Internet pages or send and receive e-mails, the request for data
from the Internet comes from a PC in the local network and so the router allows the data
through. The router opens precisely one port for the application. A port in this context
is an internal PC address, via which the data is exchanged between the Internet and a
client on a PC in the local network. Communicating via a port is subject to the rules of a
particular protocol (TCP or UDP).
If an external application tries to send a call to a PC in the local network, the router will
block it. There is no open port via which the data could enter the local network.
Some applications, such as games on the Internet, require several links, i.e. several ports
so that the players can communicate with each other. In addition, these applications
must also be permitted to send requests from other users on the Internet to users in the
local network. These applications cannot run if Network Address Translation (NAT) has
been activated.
Using port forwarding (the forwarding of requests to particular ports) the router is
forced to send requests from the Internet for a certain service, for example a game, to
the appropriate port(s) on the PC on which the game is running.
When the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl is supplied, the NAT function is activated, i.e. all IP
addresses of PCs in the local network are converted to the router's public IP address
when accessing the Internet.

Port Forwarding
If you configure Port Forwarding, the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl outwardly assumes the
role of the server. It receives requests from remote users under its public IP address and
automatically redirects them to local PCs. The private IP addresses of the servers on the
local network remain protected.
Internet services are addressed via defined port numbers. The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl
needs a mapping table of the port numbers to redirect the service requests to the servers that actually provide the service.

Example: The Web server has been configured to react to requests on port 8080. However, the requests from web sites enter the Web server via port 80 (standard value). If
you add the PC to the forwarding table and define port 80 as the public port and port
8080 as an internal port, all requests from the Internet are diverted to the service with
the port number 80 on the Web server of the PC you have defined with port 8080.

ì Click Save Settings to apply your settings.
DMZ
You can set up a client in your local network to be a so-called "exposed host" (DMZ). Your
device will then forward all incoming data traffic from the Internet to this client. You can
then, for example, operate your own Web server on one of the clients in your local network and make it accessible to Internet users.
As the exposed host, the local client is directly visible to the Internet and therefore particularly vulnerable to attacks (e.g. hacker attacks). Only activate this function if it is
absolutely necessary (e.g. to operate a Web server) and other functions (e.g. port forwarding) are not adequate. In this case you should take appropriate measures for the
clients concerned.
Note:
Only one PC per public IP address (interface) can be set up as a DMZ.

Local network configuration
Modern computers running Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000 or Mac OS X
operating systems are usually already configured on delivery to operate without
difficulty in a wired local network (Ethernet/LAN) or wireless network (WLAN). The
connection to a router or access point is established automatically in this case.
Note:
You can check whether your PC already has a connection to a router or access point
by simply entering the ping command at the command prompt of your Windows
operating system or at the Terminal of your Mac OS X. Please refer to Section
„Checking the connection to the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl” on page 63 for further
details.
If there is no connection to a Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl as yet, you may need to adapt the
network settings on the computer.
u You have to define the network name and the encryption on the computer for a
wireless connection (see page 38).
u Network addresses (IP addresses) are normally assigned automatically. To change
the default settings of your operating system for assigning IP addresses, you have to
change the TCP/IP settings. You will find further information about this topic in the
Section "IP addresses" after a short introduction. The TCP/IP settings for the various
operating system variants are then described from page 42 onwards.
u If you are still using Windows 98, you will need to install TCP/IP and set up a network
on the PC if your PC has not been operated previously in a network (see page 52).
IP addresses
Every PC in the network must have a unique network address, referred to as the IP
address, so that it can be accessed by and differentiated from the other components in
the network.
Your Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl is equipped with a DHCP server, which performs the
addressing in the network independently. This means that the IP addresses are
automatically assigned to the computers (dynamic IP addresses).
Under normal circumstances you therefore do not have to do anything because the
Obtain an IP address automatically (Using DHCP for Mac OS X) option is set when the
network is set up.
It is advisable in some cases, however, to assign static IP addresses, for example if you
wish to run a wireless network in ad-hoc mode or want to make PC services available on
the Internet. In this case, you have to change the network settings of the PCs and
configure static IP addresses.

Local network configuration
Information on assigning static IP addresses
You define the private IP addresses for the computers in your local network yourself.
Addresses from an address block reserved for private use should be used. This is the
address block
192.168.0.1 - 192.168.255.254
Example:
PC 1: 192.168.1.2
PC 2: 192.168.1.3 etc.
Please remember:
The IP addresses you can assign also depend on the subnet mask for your network.
The subnet mask used limits the IP addresses that can be assigned as it determines
how many parts of the IP address of a network represent the network number and
how many the computer number.
255.255.255.0 is normally used in a private network as the subnet mask. This means
the first three parts of the IP address form the network number and the final part can
be used for assigning computer numbers. The first three parts of the IP address of all
network components are therefore always the same. In the case of subnet mask
255.255.0.0, the first two address parts would have to be identical.
An example of subnet mask 255.255.255.0 is given below.
For example, this is correct:
Address of access point: 192.168.1.1
Computer 1: 192.168.1.12
Computer 2: 192.168.1.60 ...
This is incorrect:
Address of access point: 192.168.1.1
Computer 1: 192.168.2.2
Computer 2: 192.168.3.3
Computer names and workgroups
When your network is being set up, your computer is assigned a name. This is carried
out when the operating system is installed (with the exception of Windows 98), i.e. your
computer already has a computer name when it is delivered. The computer name is the
name under which your computer is displayed in the network view.
You can change the computer name, if desired.
Windows operating systems
When your network is set up, your PC is assigned to a workgroup. This is carried out
when the operating system is installed (with the exception of Windows 98), i.e. your PC
has already been assigned by default to a standard working group (usually
WORKGROUP). The workgroup includes a number of PCs that belong to a network and
can share common resources, such as printers and files. You can change the workgroup
to which your PC has been assigned.

Setting up a wireless network
A wireless network connection is made using a wireless adapter that must be installed
on your computer. You may first have to connect a wireless adapter to your notebook or
your computer. For example, this can be a Gigaset USB Adapter, a Gigaset USB Stick or a
Gigaset PC Card, but also a different IEEE 802.11n, 802.11g or 802.11b-compatible
wireless adapter. If you are using this type of wireless adapter, you can set up the
connection to the wireless network using the relevant software. Instructions for this can
be found in the user manual for your wireless adapter.
Most modern notebooks already have a wireless adapter fitted when delivered. In this
case, you should use the tools provided by the operating system to connect the PC,
notebook or Mac to the wireless network.
We explain below how to connect a PC or notebook to a wireless network using
Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista and Mac OS X.
To set up the connection, you need the network name (SSID) of your wireless network
and the key defined on the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl for encrypting wireless data traffic.
Note:
The preset SSID and WPA key are shown on the label on the bottom of the device.
Carry out the following steps:
ì Start your notebook or your computer. Make sure your wireless adapter is switched
on. Notebooks generally have a switch for this purpose as well as an LED as a
function display.
Windows XP
If Windows XP receives signals of wireless networks in the current
environment this will be indicated by the symbol for the wireless network
connection in the status area of the taskbar.
ì Right-click the icon in this case and choose the Show available wireless networks

Local network configuration
Please remember:
If the IP address of the router/access point has been changed, enter the new IP
address.
The ping command sends data packets to the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl with the
specified IP address and checks whether the router responds. If this is the case, the
command shows statistics about the connection, for example how many data packets
were sent, how many received, how long the transfer took, etc. If you can see this
information, then the connection to the router is functioning correctly.
If the command does not return any statistics, but ends with a timeout, this means that
the components cannot communicate with each other. Check the following points:
1. Is the Ethernet cable between the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl and the PC properly
connected or is there a wireless connection via a wireless network adapter?
The LED display for the LAN connections on the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl and link
display for the network card in your PC must be illuminated. For wireless
connections, the WLAN monitor on your PC must display connection information.
2. Has TCP/IP been properly configured on your PC?
If the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl has the IP address 192.168.1.1, your PC's IP address
must be between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.254. The default gateway must have
the address 192.168.1.1.
If you can successfully address the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl with the ping command,
then the PC has been configured correctly.
Please remember:
If the command does not end with a timeout, press the key combination Crtl-C.
Establishing the IP and MAC addresses in the network
You will need the IP address or the MAC address of the relevant computers for some of
the settings.
The MAC address (Media Access Control) is used for the globally unique identification
of a network adapter. It comprises six parts (hex digits), e. g. 00-90-96-34-00-1A. With
many components, you will find the MAC address on the nameplate of the device.

Access point
An access point, such as the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl, is the centre of a wireless local
network (WLAN). It handles the connection of the wireless linked network components
and regulates data traffic in the wireless network. The access point also serves as an
interface to other networks, for example an existing Ethernet LAN or via a modem to the
Internet. The operating mode of wireless networks with an access point is called
Infrastructure mode.
Ad-hoc mode
Ad-hoc mode describes wireless local networks (WLANs) in which the network components set up a spontaneous network without an Access point, for example several Notebooks in a conference. All the network components are peers. They must have a wireless Network adapter.
ADSL
Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) and ADSL 2+ are special types of DSL data
transfer technology.
AES
Advanced Encryption Standard
AES is an encryption system published as a standard in October 2000 by the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). It is used for WPA encryption. A distinction
is made between the three AES variants AES-128, AES-192 and AES-256 on the basis of
the key length.
Auto connect
Auto connect means that applications such as Web browser, Messenger and E-mail
automatically open an Internet connection when they are launched. This can lead to
high charges if you are not using a Flat rate. To avoid this, you can select the manual
connection option on the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl.
Bridge
A bridge connects several network segments to form a joint network, for example to
make a TCP/IP network. The segments can have different physical characteristics, for
example different cabling as with Ethernet and wireless LANs. Linking individual segments via bridges allows local networks of practically unlimited size.
See also: Switch, Hub, Router, Gateway
Broadcast
A broadcast is a data packet not directed to a particular recipient but to all the network
components in the network. The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl does not pass on broadcast
packets; they always remain within the local network (LAN) it administers.

BSSID permits unique differentiation of one wireless network (WLAN) from another. In
Infrastructure mode, the BSSID is the MAC address of the Access point. In wireless networks in Ad-hoc mode, the BSSID is the MAC address of any one of the participants.
Client
A client is an application that requests a service from a server. For example, an HTTP client on a PC in a local network requests data, i.e. Web pages from an HTTP server on the
Internet. Frequently the network component (e.g. the PC) on which the client application is running is also called a client.
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
DHCP handles the automatic assignment of IP addresses to network components. It was
developed because of the complexity involved in defining IP addresses in large networks
– especially the Internet – as participants frequently move, drop out or new ones join.
A DHCP server automatically assigns the connected network components (DHCP Clients) Dynamic IP addresses from a defined IP pool range thus saving a great deal of configuration work. In addition, the address blocks can be used more effectively: Since not
all participants are on the network at the same time, the same IP address can be
assigned to different network components in succession as and when required.
The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl includes a DHCP server and uses it to assign IP addresses
automatically to PCs in the local network. You can specify that the IP addresses for certain PCs are never changed.
DHCP server

DMZ
Demilitarised Zone
DMZ describes a part of a network that is outside the Firewall. A DMZ is set up, as it
were, between a network you want to protect (e.g. a LAN) and a non-secure network
(e.g. the Internet). A DMZ is useful if you want to offer Server services on the Internet
that are not to be run from behind the firewall for security reasons, or if Internet applications do not work correctly behind a firewall. A DMZ permits unrestricted access from
the Internet to only one or a few network components, while the other network components remain secure behind the firewall.

DNS
Domain Name System
DNS permits the assignment of IP addresses to computers or Domain names that are
easier to remember. A DNS server must administer this information for each LAN with
an Internet connection. As soon as a page on the Internet is called up, the browser
obtains the corresponding IP address from the DNS server so that it can establish the
connection.
On the Internet, the assignment of domain names to IP addresses follows a hierarchical
system. A local PC only knows the address of the local name server. This in turn knows
all the addresses of the PCs in the local network and the superordinate name servers,
which again know addresses of the next superordinate name servers.
DNS server
See DNS
Domain name
The domain name is the reference to one or more Web servers on the Internet. The
domain name is mapped via the DNS service to the corresponding IP address.
DoS attack
Denial of Service
A DoS attack is a particular form of hacker attack directed at computers and networks
with a connection to the Internet. The aim is not so much to steal data but to paralyse
the computer or network so severely that the network resources are no longer available.
A typical hacker attack involves making a remote computer announce that it is acting
for the paralysed computer, for example, and receive the data intended for you.
DSL
Digital Subscriber Line
DSL is a data transfer technique in which a connection to the Internet can be run at high
speed over normal telephone lines. A DSL connection is provided by an Internet service
provider. It requires a DSL modem.
Dynamic IP address
A dynamic IP address is assigned to a network component automatically by DHCP. This
means that the IP address of a network component can change with every login or at
certain intervals.

DynDNS
Dynamic DNS
The assignment of Domain names and IP addresses is handled by the Domain Name
Service (DNS). This service is now enhanced with so-called Dynamic DNS (DynDNS) for
Dynamic IP addresses. This enables the use of a network component with a dynamic IP
address as a Server on the Internet. DynDNS ensures that a service can always be
addressed on the Internet under the same domain name regardless of the current IP
address.
Encryption
Encryption protects confidential information against unauthorised access. With an
encryption system, data packets can be sent securely over a network. The Gigaset
SE587 WLAN dsl offers WEP encryption and WPA for secure data transfer over wireless
networks.
Ethernet
Ethernet is a network technology for local networks (LANs) defined by the IEEE as standard IEEE 802.3. Ethernet uses a base-band cable with a transfer rate of 10 or 100 Mbps
or 1 Gbps.
Firewall
Firewalls are used by network operators as protection against unauthorised external
access. This involves a whole bundle of hardware and software actions and technologies that monitor and control the data flow between the private network to be protected and an unprotected network such as the Internet.

IEEE
Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers
The IEEE is an international body for defining network standards, especially for standardising LAN technologies, transfer protocols, data transfer speeds and wiring.
IEEE 802.11
IEEE 802.11 is a standard for wireless LANs operating in the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band. In
the so-called Infrastructure mode, terminals can be connected to a base station (Access
point) or they can connect with each other spontaneously (Ad-hoc mode).
IGMP
Internet Group Management Protocol
IGMP is an Internet Protocol that enables an Internet computer to inform neighbouring
routers that it is a member of a multicast group. With multicasting, a computer can send
content on the Internet to several other computers that have registered an interest in
the first computer's content. Multicasting can, for example, be used for multimedia programs for media streaming to recipients that have set up multicast group membership.
Infrastructure mode
Infrastructure mode is a way of operating wireless local networks (WLANs) in which an
Access point handles the data traffic. Network components cannot establish a direct
connection with each other as is the case in Ad-hoc mode.

Internet
The Internet is a wide-area network (WAN) linking several million users around the
world. A number of Protocols have been created for exchanging data, and these are
known collectively as TCP/IP protocol stack. All participants on the Internet can be identified by an IP address. Servers are addressed by Domain names (e.g. siemens.com).
Domain names are assigned to IP addresses by the Domain Name Service (DNS).
These are some of the main Internet services:
u Electronic mail (e-mail)
u The World Wide Web (WWW)
u File transfer (FTP)
u Discussion forums (Usenet / Newsgroups)
Internet service provider
An Internet service provider, for example Tiscali, offers access to the Internet for a fee.
IP
Internet protocol
The IP Protocol is one of the TCP/IP protocols. It is responsible for addressing parties in a
network using IP addresses and routes data from the sender to the recipient. It decides
the paths along which the data packets travel from the sender to the recipient in a complex network (routing).
IP address
The IP address is the unique network-wide address of a network component in a network based on the TCP/IP protocols (e.g. in a local area network (LAN) or on the Internet). The IP address has four parts (each with up to three-position digit sequences) separated by full stops (e.g. 192.168.1.1). The IP address comprises the network number
and the computer number. Depending on the Subnet mask, one, two or three parts
form the network number; the remainder form the computer number. You can find out
the IP address of your PC using the ipconfig command.
IP addresses can be assigned manually (see Static IP address) or automatically (see
Dynamic IP address).
On the Internet Domain names are normally used instead of IP addresses. The DNS is
used to assign domain names to IP addresses.
The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl has a Private IP address and a Public IP address.
IPoA
IP over ATM
IP pool range
The Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl's IP address pool defines a range of IP addresses that the

LAN
Local network
A local area network (or local network) links network components so that they can
exchange data and share resources. The physical range is restricted to a particular area
(a site). As a rule the users and operators are identical. A local network can be connected to other local networks or to a wide-area network (WAN) such as the Internet.
With the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl you can set up a wired local Ethernet network and a
wireless IEEE 802.11g standard network (WLAN).

NAT
Network Address Translation
NAT is a method for converting IP addresses (Private IP addresses) within a network into
one or several Public IP addresses on the Internet. With NAT, several network components in a LAN can share the router's public IP address to connect to the Internet. The
network components of the local network are hidden behind the router's IP address registered on the Internet. Because of this security function, NAT is frequently used as part
of the Firewall of a network. If you want to make services on a PC in the local network
available on the Internet despite NAT, you can configure the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl as
a Virtual server.
Network
A network is a group of devices connected in wired or wireless mode so that they can
share resources such as data and peripherals. A general distinction is made between
local networks (LANs) and wide-area networks (WANs).
Network adapter
The network adapter is the hardware device that creates the connection between a network component and a local network. The connection can be wired or wireless. An Ethernet network card is an example of a wired network adapter. The Gigaset PC Card 108
and the Gigaset USB Adapter 108 are examples of wireless network adapters.
A network adapter has a unique address, the MAC address.
Public IP address
The public IP address (also known as the global IP address) is a network component's
address on the Internet. It is assigned by the Internet service provider. Devices that create a link from a LAN to the Internet, such as the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl, have a public
and a Private IP address.
Port
Data is exchanged between two applications in a network across a port. The port
number addresses an application within a network component. The combination of IP
address/port number uniquely identifies the recipient or sender of a data packet within
a network. Some applications (e.g. Internet services such as HTTP or FTP) work with
fixed port numbers; others are allocated a free port number whenever they need one.
Port forwarding
In port forwarding, the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl directs data packets from the Internet
that are addressed to a particular Port to the corresponding port of the appropriate network component. This enables servers within the local network to offer services on the
Internet without them needing a Public IP address.

"server" is often used to refer to a computer or PC. However, it can also mean an application that provides a particular service such as DNS, Web server, file server or print
server.
SMTP
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol
The SMTP Protocol is part of the TCP/IP protocol family. It governs the exchange of electronic mail on the Internet. Your Internet service provider provides you with access to an
SMTP server.
SNMP
Simple Network Management Protocol
The SNMP Protocol is part of the TCP/IP protocol family. It provides a simple procedure
for administering the network based on a system of shared information for management data and network management messages (known as traps) and reports the occurrence of events within the monitored network (e.g. an alarm message or notification of
configuration changes).
SSID
Service Set Identifier
The SSID is used to identify the stations in a wireless network (WLAN). All wireless network components with the same SSID form a common network. The SSID can be
assigned by the network operator.
Static IP address
A static IP address is assigned to a network component manually during network configuration. Unlike the Dynamic IP address, a static (fixed) IP address never changes.
Subnet
A subnet divides a network into smaller units.

Subnet mask
The subnet mask determines how many parts of IP addresses of a network represent the
network number and how many parts the computer number.
If the subnet mask is in a network that is administered by the Gigaset SE587 WLAN dsl,
for example 255.255.255.0, the first three parts of the IP address form the network
number and only the final part can be used for assigning host numbers. The first three
parts of the IP address of all network components are therefore always the same in this
case.
Switch
A switch, like a Hub, is an element used to link different network segments or components. Unlike a hub however, the switch has its own intelligence that enables it to forward packets to only the subnet or network component for which they are intended.
