ABOUT THIS GUIDE
INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of this 108Mbps Super-GTM Wireless LAN
Router. This integrated access device combines Internet gateway functions with
wireless LAN and Fast Ethernet switch. It provides a complete solution for Internet
surfing and office resources sharing, and it is easy to configure and operate for
every users.
With the explosive growth of the Internet, accessing information and services at
any time, day or night has become a standard requirement for most people. The era
of the standalone PC is waning. Networking technology is moving out of the
exclusive domain of corporations and into homes with at least two computers.
This integrated access device combines Internet gateway functions with wireless
LAN and Fast Ethernet switch. Designed for the business and home, it saves you
the cost of installing a separate modem and ISP line for each computer, while
providing ready connection for the users, with or without the network wires.
Broadband network access is also gaining ground. However, allowing more than
two computers to access the Internet at the same time means less affordable, higher
costs. Thus, there is a need to share one legal IP address over a single Internet
connection to link the home with the Internet.
The scarcity of IP addresses and using a shared Internet connection through an
Internet sharing device can solve high network access costs. All linked computers
can make full use of broadband capabilities over such a device.
This device not only comes equipped with a wide range of features, but also can be
installed and configured right out of the box. This device supports a simple local
area network and Internet access share, offering great cost savings.
The local area network connects up home computers while also allowing any of the
computers to access the Internet, share resources, or play online games—the basis
of the family computing lifestyle.

UNPACKING AND SETUP
This chapter provides unpacking and setup information for the 108Mbps Super-GTM
Wireless LAN Router.
Unpacking
Open the box of the WLAN Router and carefully unpack it. The box should contain
the following items:
One 108Mbps Super-GTM Wireless LAN Router
One dipole antenna
One external power adapter
One CD-ROM with this User’s Guide
If any item is found missing or damaged, please contact your local reseller for
replacement.
Setup
The setup of the WLAN Router can be performed properly using the following
methods:
The power outlet should be within 1.82 meters (6 feet) of the Broadband Router.
Visually inspect the DC power jack and make sure that it is fully secured to the
power adapter.
Make sure that there is proper heat dissipation from and adequate ventilation
around the Broadband Router. Do not place heavy objects on the Broadband
Router.
Fix the direction of the antennas. Try to place the Wireless Router in a position
that can best cover your wireless network. Normally, the higher you place the
antenna, the better the performance will be. The antenna’s position enhances the
receiving sensitivity.

Hardware connections
PC NETWORK TCP/IP SETTING
Connecting the WLAN Router
The network TCP/IP settings differ based on the computer’s operating system
(Win95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP) and are as follows.
Windows 95/98/ME
1. Click on the “Network neighborhood” icon found on the desktop.
2. Click the right mouse button and a context menu will be show.
3. Select “Properties” to enter the TCP/IP setting screen.
4. Select “Obtain an IP address automatically” on the “IP address” field.
1. Plug in one end of the network cable to the WAN port of the WLAN Router.
2. Plug in the other end of the network cable to the Ethernet port of the xDSL or
Cable modem.
3. Use another network cable to connect to the Ethernet card on the computer
system; the other end of the cable connects to the LAN port of the WLAN
Router. Since the 108Mbps Super-GTM Wireless LAN Router has four ports, you
can connect up to four computers directly to the unit. There you do not have to
buy a switch to connect these computers since one WLAN Router functions both
as a connection-sharing unit and as a switch.
5. Select “Disable DNS” in the “DNS” field.
Check the installation
The control LEDs of the WLAN Router are clearly visible and the status of the
network link can be seen instantly:
1. With the power source on, once the device is connected to the broadband modem,
the Power, System, LAN, WLAN and WAN port LEDs of the WLAN Router
will light up indicating a normal status.
2. While the WAN is link up to the ADSL/Cable modem, the WAN port’s LED
will light up.
3. While the LAN is link up to the computer system, the LAN port’s LED will light
up.
