2. Lay the device down or attach it to a metal partition wall
with the Ethernet ports facing out for easy access.
The procedure is as follows:
Take into consideration the Ethernet cabling and power cord
length and location before setting your device on a desktop.
1. Measure the distance from the middle of each mounting
screw hole.
Note:
2. Mark the locations of the screw holes on the wall.
When setting the device on a desktop, take into consideration cable limitations.
3. Drill a hole for each marked location.
4. Insert a wall anchor into each hole and insert a screw in
each, leaving a 1/8 (3.1 mm) to a 1/4 (6.3 mm) of the
screw out to hang the switch.
Preparing to Connect the Device
Note:
This section guides you on the connection types to expect due
to the operation modes. See the following illustrations to view
the connection options.
Make sure to leave enough of the screw head above the
wall surface to secure the ETA1305.

LINK LAYERS
Appendix C
Link Layers
There are different ways of connecting your personal computer (PC) or mobile computing device to the Internet. Here are four of the
most common ways and how to connect to the Internet using them.
Dynamic IP Address (DHCP)
A DHCP of connection is where your internet connection is usually always on and your internet service provider automatically provides you with an IP address. A DHCP connection is usually from a Cable internet service.
Static IP
To set up a Static IP connection, enter the following: IP Address of the Internet Connection, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and both
DNS Servers. This information can be obtained by either your Internet Service provider or Network Administrator. If your internet service provider requires a username and password to connect, you will then be prompted to enter the correct information.
MTU: Maximum Transmission Unit. It specifies the largest packet size permitted for internet transmission. The factory default MTU
size of Static IP is 1500. If you wish to manually change the MTU size, set it between 512 and 1500.
C-1
APPENDIX C
LINK LAYERS
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE)
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE): To set up a PPPoE connection, enter the Username, Password, and Service (name)
of the internet connection provided by your ISP. Click Next and the ERB300H/150H should connect to the internet successfully. A
PPPoE connection is usually from a DSL internet service.
1. Login: The username or e-mail address that the internet connection uses to access internet connectivity.
2. Password: The password that corresponds to the username or e-mail address used to connect to the internet in the PPPoE.
3. Service Name: The Service Name is optional. This is to signify the name of the Internet Service Provider.
4. MTU: Maximum Transmission Unit. It specifies the largest packet size permitted for internet transmission. The factory default
MTU size of Static IP is 1500. If you wish to manually change the MTU size, set it between 512 and 1500.
5. Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP)
To set up a PPTP connection, enter the type of WAN connection (Static IP or DHCP). After, depending on the type of WAN, follow the
instructions of DHCP or Static IP to fill out the corresponding information. Then, proceed to enter the Username, Password, Service,
and Connection ID of the PPTP internet connection. Once completed, click Next. Once configured, the internet connection will successfully connect.
Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP)
To set up an L2TP connection, enter the type of WAN connection (Static IP or DHCP). After, depending on the type of WAN, follow
the instructions of DHCP or Static IP to fill out the corresponding information. Then, proceed to enter the Username, Password, and
Service. Click next when completed. Once configured, the internet connection will successfully connect.
MTU: Maximum Transmission Unit. It specifies the largest packet size permitted for internet transmission. The factory default MTU
size of Static IP is 1500. If you wish to manually change the MTU size, set it between 512 and 1500.
