rarely required, and should not be done unless you are sure it is necessary for your
ISP connection.
If your ISP gives you one or two DNS addresses, select Use These DNS Servers
and enter the primary and secondary addresses into the correct fields. Otherwise,
the DNS servers will be assigned dynamically from your ISP.
Note: If you get address and find error when you go to a Web site, it is likely that
your DNS servers are set up improperly. You should contact your ISP to get DNS
server addresses.
Get IP with Unicast DHCP: A few ISPs' DHCP servers do not support the
broadcast applications. If you cannot get the IP Address normally, you can choose
this option. (This is rarely required.)

5.7.2 Port Triggering
Some applications require multiple connections, like Internet games, video
conferencing, Internet calling and so on. These applications cannot work with a pure
NAT router. Port Triggering is used for some of these applications that can work with an
NAT router. You can set up Port Triggering on this page shown in figure 5-27:
Figure 5-27 Port Triggering
Once configured, operation is as follows:
1. A local host makes an outgoing connection using a destination port number
defined in the Trigger Port field.
2. The router records this connection, opens the incoming port or ports associated
with this entry in the Port Triggering table, and associates them with the local host.
3. When necessary the external host will be able to connect to the local host using
one of the ports defined in the Incoming Ports field.
- 39 -
DN-7039-B
108M Wireless Router User Guide
¾
Trigger Port - The port for outgoing traffic. An outgoing connection using this port
will "Trigger" this rule.
¾
Trigger Protocol - The protocol used for Trigger Ports, either TCP, UDP, or All (all
protocols supported by the router).
¾
Incoming Ports Range - The port or port range used by the remote system when it
responds to the outgoing request. A response using one of these ports will be
forwarded to the PC that triggered this rule. You can input at most 5 groups of ports
(or port section). Every group of ports must be set apart with ",". For example,
2000-2038, 2050-2051, 2085, 3010-3030.
¾
Incoming Protocol - The protocol used for Incoming Ports Range, either TCP or
UDP, or ALL (all protocols supported by the router).

5.7.3 DMZ
The DMZ host feature allows one local host to be exposed to the Internet for a
special-purpose service such as Internet gaming or videoconferencing. DMZ host
forwards all the ports at the same time. Any PC whose port is being forwarded must have
its DHCP client function disabled and should have a new static IP Address assigned to it
because its IP Address may change when using the DHCP function. You can set up DMZ
host on this page shown in figure 5-29:
