DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
Installation Overview
The procedure to install the Router can be described in general terms in the following steps:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Gather information and equipment needed to install the device. Before you begin the actual installation
make sure you have all the necessary information and equipment. Check the contents of the package to
be certain that everything listed on the packing list is included. A packing list is included at the end of
this section. The information you will need includes the account name or number and the password used
to gain access to your service provider’s network, and ultimately to the Internet. In addition, some users
may be given information used to configure the Router so it can establish a connection to the service
provider’s network and the Internet.
Install the hardware, that is, connect the Ethernet and telephone cables to the device to establish the
necessary network links to your computer and to the service provider’s network and connect the power
adapter to power on the Router.
Check the IP settings on your computer and change them if necessary so the computer can access the
web-based software built into the Router. Without the correct IP settings your computer will not be
able to communicate with the ddevice or access the software used to configure the Router. Without
compatible IP settings on your computer, you will not be able to use a web browser to access the
Internet.
Use the web-based management software to configure the device to suit the requirements of your
SHDSL account as instructed by your service provider. Some users may not need to change any of the
device settings that establish and maintain the network connection. It may only be necessary to supply
the user name or number and the password used for your account. Other users may not be required to
change anything in the Router but they may need to install software on a computer used to access the
Internet. Follow the instructions of your service provider to find out what is required for your account.
Requirements for Installation
In order to use SHDSL you must have SHDSL service set up by your service provider. SHDSL operates on a
separate physical line from normal voice telephone service therefore you must have a line dedicated for SHDSL
in addition to your regular telephone line.
To install and use the Router you need a computer equipped with an Ethernet port (such as an Ethernet NIC) and
a web browser. To establish the WAN connection to your ISP’s network, it will be necessary for most users to
make some changes to the WAN configuration of the Router. This change may only be to supply a user name
and password for your ISP account (see below).
Operating System
The Router uses an HTML-based web interface for setup and management. The web configuration manager may
be accessed using any operating system capable of running web browser software.
Web Browser
Any common web browser can be used to configure the Router using the web configuration management
software. The program is designed to work best with more recently released browsers such as Microsoft Internet
Explorer® version 5.0, Netscape Navigator® version 4.7, or later versions. The web browser must have
JavaScript enabled. JavaScript is enabled by default on many browsers. Make sure JavaScript has not been
disabled by other software (such as virus protection or web user security packages) that may be running on your
computer.
Ethernet Port (NIC Adapter)
Any computer that uses the Router must be able to connect to it through the Ethernet port on the Router. This
connection is an Ethernet connection and therefore requires that your computer be equipped with an Ethernet
port as well. Most notebook computers are now sold with an Ethernet port already installed. Likewise, most fully
assembled desktop computers come with an Ethernet NIC adapter as standard equipment. If your computer does
not have an Ethernet port, you must install an Ethernet NIC adapter before you can use the Router. If you must
install an adapter, follow the installation instructions that come with the Ethernet NIC adapter.

Introduction
This chapter describes the Router and it features and includes brief introduction to SHDSL. Front and rear panel
diagrams are used to illustrate the LED indicators and cable connections.
Router Description and Operation
The DSL-1500G SHDSL Router is designed as a gateway for busy networks. It provides upload and download
speeds of up to 2.3 Mbps. High speed symmetrical data transmission is ideally suited to business networks using
VPN and remote LAN-to-LAN applications, video teleconferencing, web servers, IP telephony and Internet
gaming.
The Router is easy to install and use. The DSL-1500G connects to an Ethernet LAN via a standard Ethernet
10BASE-T interface using RJ-45 connectors. The SHDSL connection is made using ordinary twisted-pair
telephone line with standard RJ-11 connectors. Enhanced 4-wire SHDSL service requires a special installation.
(Ask your service provider about the availability of 4-wire SHDSL service).
Enterprise-grade features on the DSL-1500G provide security, efficiency and reliability for demanding business
networks. The Router supports transparent bridging or it can be used for IP packet routing over the Internet. Cost
saving features of the Router such as NAT (Network Address Translator) and DHCP (Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol) improve efficiency and security. The advanced security enhancements, packet filtering
and port redirection, can help protect your network from potentially devastating intrusions by malicious agents
from outside your network.
About SHDSL
Symmetric High-Speed Digital Subscriber Line technology is the first international DSL standard developed
from the ground up. It represents a very significant improvement over the interim SDSL standard, delivering
higher bit rates over longer distances. SHDSL allows telecommunications companies to deliver T1-level data
network services at fraction of the cost. The standard has been developed by the International
Telecommunications Union (ITU) in Geneva Switzerland with cooperation and input from a consortium of
telecommunications and computer technology industry leaders.
It is important to note that SHDSL does not support analog splitting technologies and therefore cannot coexist
with regular voice telephone service or ISDN installations. Unlike Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL)
technology, SHDSL requires a separate dedicated physical line (standard twisted-pair copper telephone wire).
Plain Old Telephone Services (POTS) cannot share the same line with SHDSL, although IP phones can be used
over SHDSL. The standard also allows for extended reach double twisted-pair (4-wire) implementations that can
double the bandwidth to up to 4.6 Mbps upstream and downstream.

DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
Product Features
The DSL-1500G SHDSL Router utilizes the latest DSL enhancements and router technologies to provide a
robust Internet gateway suitable for most small to medium sized networks.
VPN Support
The DSL-1500G SHDSL supports VPN Pass Through for L2TP, PPTP and IP Sec.
Firewall Protection
Tailored firewall security features include packet filtering for protocol and IP address and port redirection.
DHCP Support (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) automatically and dynamically assigns al LAN IP settings to
each host on your network. This eliminates the need to reconfigure every host whenever changes in network
topology occur.
Network Address Translation (NAT)
For small and medium office networks, the DSL-1500G allows multiple users on the LAN to access the Internet
concurrently through a single IP address. This provides Internet access to every workstation using a single
Internet account.
NAT improves network security in effect by hiding the private network behind one global and visible IP address.
NAT address mapping can also be used to link two IP domains via a LAN-to-LAN connection for remote LAN
implementations.
Static Routing
This allows you to select a data path to a particular network destination that will remain in the routing table and
never “age out”. If you wish to define a specific route that will always be used for data traffic from your LAN to
a specific destination within your LAN (for example to another router or a server) or outside your network (to a
ISP defined default gateway for instance).
Multiple Encapsulation Support
The DSL-1500G supports Bridged Ethernet over ATM (RFC2684), IP over ATM (RFC1577) and PPP over ATM
(RFC 2364).
Precise ATM Traffic Shaping
Traffic shaping is a method of controlling the flow rate of ATM data cells. This function helps to establish the
Quality of Service for ATM data transfer.
High Performance
Very high symmetric data transfer rates of up to 2.3 Mbps Upstream/Downstream over standard single twistedpair telephone cable. Up to 4.6 Mbps Upstream/Downstream is possible for double twisted-pair installations.
Full Network Management
The DSL-1500G incorporates SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) support for web-based
management and text-based network management via an RS-232 or Telnet connection. Enable Telnet for remote
text-based management access to the Router. Management through the WAN port can be enabled for access
from outside the LAN.
Easy Installation
The DSL-1500G uses a web-based graphical user interface program for convenient management access and easy
set up. Any common web browser software can be used to manage the Router

Hardware Installation
Follow the instructions here to connect the Router and power it on. Instructions for performing a factory reset are
provided at the end of this section.
Select Location
Place the Router in a location where the LED indicators can be easily viewed. Keep the device away from any
significant heat source and allow space on the sides and especially above for ventilation. As with any electrical
device, place the device in a suitable and safe location.
Connect SHDSL Line
Use the DSL cable included with the Router to connect it to the telephone socket dedicated for your SHDSL
service. Plug one end of the cable into the DSL port (RJ-11 receptacle) on the rear panel of the Router and insert
the other end into the dedicated SHDSL socket. The SHDSL connection represents the WAN interface. It is the
physical link to the ISP’s network backbone and ultimately to the Internet.
Connect Router to Ethernet
The Router connects directly to Ethernet workstation or to an Ethernet LAN. The RJ-45 ports on the Router are
crossed ports (MDI-X) and can be connected to an Ethernet adapter with a straight-through (MDI-II) port using
normal straight-through Ethernet cable. Use crossed cable when connecting the Router to a crossed port
(MDI-X) on a switch or hub. Use straight-through cable when connecting it to an uplink (MDI-II) port on a hub
or switch. A valid connection is indicated if the Ethernet Link LED indicator on the front panel shines steady
green. Be sure to use Category 5 or better Ethernet cable.
The rules governing Ethernet cable lengths apply to the four Ethernet ports. Be sure that the cable connecting the
Router to other Ethernet devices does not exceed 100 meters.
Power On Router
To power on the Router:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Insert the AC Power Adapter cord into the power receptacle located on the rear panel of the Router and
plug the adapter into a suitable nearby power source.
Turn on the power with the power switch located on the rear panel.
You should see the Power LED indicator light up and remain lit. The Status LED should light solid green
and begin to blink after a few seconds.
If you have the Router connected to your network you can look at the Ethernet Link/Act LED indicators
to make sure they have valid connections. The Router will attempt to establish the SHDSL connection, if
the SHDSL line is connected and the connection is properly configured this should light up after several
seconds.
Factory Reset Button
The Router may be reset to the original factory default settings by depressing the reset button for a few seconds
while the device is powered on. Use a ballpoint or paperclip to push down the reset button. Remember that this
will wipe out any settings stored in flash memory including IP settings. The factory default IP address of the
Router is 192.168.0.1 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.

Configuring the Router for the First Time
The first time you setup the Router it is recommended that you configure the WAN connection using a single
computer making sure that both the computer and the Router are not connected to the LAN. Once the WAN
connection is functioning properly you may continue to change settings to suit your preferences. This chapter is
only concerned with establishing the WAN connection. The following chapter, Web-based Management Guide,
describes the various menus used to configure and monitor the Router including how to change IP settings and
DHCP server setup.
Wan Configuration Summary
1.
Connect to the Router To configure the WAN connection used by the Router it is first necessary to
communicate with the Router through its management interface, which is HTML-based and can be
accessed using a web browser. To access the management software your computer must be able to
“see” the Router. Your computer can see the Router if it is in the same “neighborhood” or subnet as the
Router. This is accomplished by making sure your computer has IP settings that place it in the same
subnet as the Router. The easiest way to make sure your computer has the correct IP settings is to
configure it to use the DHCP server in the Router. The next section describes how to change the IP
configuration for a computer running a Windows operating system to be a DHCP client.
2.
Configure the WAN Connection Once your are able to access the configuration software you can
proceed to change the settings required to establish the SHDSL connection and connect to the service
provider’s network. There are different methods used to establish the connection to the service
provider’s network and ultimately to the Internet. You should know what Encapsulation and connection
type you are required to use for your SHDSL service. It is also possible that you must change the PVC
settings used for the SHDSL connection. Your service provider should provide all the information you
need to configure the WAN connection.
Step 1 - Configure IP Settings on Your Computer
In order to configure your system to receive IP settings from the Router it must first have the TCP/IP protocol
installed. If you have an Ethernet port on your computer, it probably already has TCP/IP protocol installed. If
you are using Windows XP the TCP/IP is enabled by default for standard installations. Below is an illustrated
example of how to configure a Windows XP system to automatically obtain IP settings from the Router.
Following this example is a step-by-step description of the procedures used on the other Windows operating
systems to first check if the TCP/IP protocol has been installed, if it is not instruction are provided for installing
it. Once the protocol has been installed you can configure the system to receive IP settings from the Router.
For computers running non-Windows operating systems, follow the instructions for your OS that configure the
system to receive an IP address from the Router, that is, configure the system to be a DHCP client.
NOTE: If you are using this Router to provide Internet access for more
than one computer, you can use these instructions later to change the IP
settings for the other computers. However you cannot use the same IP
address since every computer must have its own IP address that is unique
on the local network.

DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
Step 3 - Configure the Router
The first page that appears after you successfully login displays the menu you need to configure the Router so it
can connect to the Internet. The Router/Bridge Configuration menu is used to configure the Router’s WAN
connection. The purpose of this section is to help he reader to establish the WAN connection. The remainder of
this chapter describes how to establish the WAN connection. For a complete description of the user changeable
variables in the Router/Bridge Configuration read the next chapter on Web-based Management.
Configuring the WAN Connection (First Time Setup)
When the Router is used to provide Internet access it must first access your service provider’s network, that is, it
must communicate with computers and other routers owned by your service provider. These computers and
routers then provide access to the Internet. The Router must be configured to communicate with the systems that
give it access to the larger network. There are different methods or protocols used to make this communication
possible, and both ends of the communication must agree on what method to use and how to set up the
connection. This is what you will configure the Router to do, to agree with the service provider’s equipment and
negotiate the terms of the connection using a language or protocol that both sides understand.
Sometimes it is also necessary to configure settings that control the SHDSL connection itself. The SHDSL
connection is what carries the data from one point to the other. So in addition to telling the Router what method
it must use, you may also be asked change the PVC (Permanent Virtual Channel) settings. These settings are
defined by two number the VPI (Virtual Path Indicator) and the VCI (Virtual Channel Indicator). Read the
section on Connection Profile in the next chapter for information about changing the PVC.
All the information you need to make the changes needed for a functioning WAN connection should have been
provided to you by your ISP or network service provider.
To configure the WAN connection, use the Router/Bridge Configuration menu and perform the steps listed
below. Some of the settings do not need to be changed when you first set up the device but can be changed later
if you choose.
1.
Select the Connection Profile method used for your connection. The options available are Router with
PPoA (default), Router with PPPoE or Bridge with RFC 1483. If your SHDSL service uses a different
protocol such as Router with RFC 1483 or Router with IPoA, you must create a new Connection Profile.
See the Adding and Changing Connection Profiles section in the next chapter if you are using one of
these other protocols.
11
DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
NOTICE: If you change the Connection Profile, click the OK button without
making any other changes. Save the changes and reboot the device.
Upon restarting continue to configure any remaining settings that need to
be changed in the Router/Bridge Configuration Menu as instructed in the
remaining steps below. It will again be necessary to save settings and
restart the Router to establish the WAN connection.
2.
The remaining settings that must be configured are different for the different Connection Profile types.
•
If you have a Router with PPoA or Router with PPoE Connection Profile, you must supply a
User Name and Password used to verify the identity of your account. Type in the User Name
and Password used for your PPP connection. Also select the Authentication method used, pap
or chap, choose Enabled for Connect On Demand and leave the Idle Time setting at 0.
•
If you select Bridge with RFC 1483, there are no more changes needed to establish the WAN
connection for the Router. However, you may have to install some sort of connection software
on your computer. Follow the instructions given to you by your ISP or network service
provider.
3.
Click the OK button when you have entered all the information. A new prompt dialog box appears
4.
Click the OK button. The Router will save the configuration settings and restart. After restarting it will
begin to negotiate the connection. You can login to the web manager again.
•
If you are using a PPPoA or PPPoE Connection Profile you will see the same Router/Bridge
Configuration menu, check the Router’s Connection Status at the bottom of the web page.
The Connection Status should indicate the Router is Connecting. When this indicates the
Router is Connected you can access the Internet or continue to configure the Router.
•
If you are using a Bridge with RFC 1483 Connection Profile a different menu will appear after
you login (see example below).

Web-based Management Guide
The DSL-1500G uses an HTML-based graphical user interface (GUI) allowing users to manage the Router from
anywhere on the LAN using a standard browser, software such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet
Explorer. The web browser is used for direct communication with the Router using HTTP protocol.
Accessing the Web Manager
In order to use the web-based management software it will be necessary to use a computer that occupies the
same subnet as the Router. The simplest way to do this for many users will be to use DHCP server that is
enabled by default on the Router. Chapter 3 provides instructions on how to configure a system running
Windows operating systems to be DHCP client. You may also manually assign IP settings for the computer so
that it resides on the same subnet as the Router. The Router has a default IP address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet
mask of 255.255.255.0. If you specify IP settings, use an IP address in the range 192.168.0.2 – 192.168.0.254
with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. Once you have accessed the configuration software you can configure the
Router’s IP settings and DHCP server configuration to suit your preferences.
To use the web-based management software run the browser you have installed on your computer and direct it to
the Router’s HTML interface using its LAN IP address. If this is the first time you are accessing the web-based
manager you must type its default IP address, 192.168.0.1 in the address bar of the browser. The URL in the
address bar should read: http://192.168.0.1. If you change the IP address you will use the new IP address to
access the web-based manager.
In the page that opens, click on the Login button.
A new window will appear and you will be prompted for a user name and password. Use the default user name
admin and password admin for first time set up.

Router Configuration
All the settings that define Router operations on both the LAN and WAN can be configured with the menus
located in the Configuration folder. These menus are described in the first part of this chapter presented in the
same order that they appear in your browser.
The Maintenance folder and Summary folder contain menus useful for system upkeep and analysis. These
menus are described later in this chapter.
The first menu presented when you login is the Router/Bridge Configuration menu used to configure settings for
the WAN connection.
Router/Bridge Configuration
Use the Router/Bridge Configuration menu to configure the WAN connection. The WAN connection must have
the correct Connection Profile including accurate VPI and VCI values. For PPPoA and PPPoE Connection
Profiles you must also supply user account information (User Name and Password) to access the service
provider’s network. This is NOT the same as the System User Name and Password used to access the web
manager of the Router. See the table below for a complete description of the various configurable parameters in
the Router/Bridge Configuration menu. Auto-refresh may be disabled to prevent the PPP Information from
displaying updates.
Router/Bridge Configuration
NOTE: If the Connection Profile is changed to Router with RFC 1483, Bridge
with RFC 1483 or Router with IPoA, the Router/Bridge Configuration menu will
be changed after the configuration settings are saved and the device is
restarted.
15
DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
The parameters available to be configured in the Router/Bridge Configuration menu change according to the
Connection Profile configured.
NOTICE: If you must change the Connection Profile, change it to the
desired setting and click the OK button without making any other changes.
Save the changes and reboot the device. Upon restarting continue to
configure any remaining settings that need to be changed in the
Router/Bridge Configuration Menu. It will again be necessary to save
settings and restart the Router to establish the WAN connection.
All connections must configure:
Connection Profile
Use this drop-down menu to select the connection profile. If your
account uses a connection protocol that is not listed, it will be necessary
to create a new connection profile. Also, if your DSL connection uses
different VPI/VCI values, a new connection profile must be created. See
the next section, Adding and Changing a Connection Profile.
Encapsulation Method
Select LLC or VC Mux as instructed by your service provider.
PPPoA and PPPoE connection profiles must configure:
Login User Name
Type in the account user name used for authentication by your network
service provider.
Login Password
Type in the account password used for authentication by your network
service provider.
Confirm Password
Type the same password to confirm it.
Authentication
Choose the security protocol used to confirm the identity of the
subscriber. Choose chap (default) or pap form the drop-down menu.
Connect on Demand
Select enabled or disabled. When this function is enabled the router will
connect any workstation on your LAN to the Internet upon request. If this
function is disabled, it will be necessary to access this menu and hit the
Connect button each time you want to establish a connection to the
WAN or the Internet.
Idle Time
A value of 0 means that the PPP connection will remain connected. If
your network account is billed according to the amount of time the
Router is actually connected to the Internet, enter an appropriate Idle
Time value (in seconds). This will disconnect the Router after the WAN
connection has been idle for the amount of time specified. The default
value = 0.
IPoA connection profiles must configure:
IP Unnumbered
This is enabled by default and therefore no IP settings need to be
entered for the account. If this is disabled, (global) IP settings must be
configured for the WAN interface.
IP Address
If IP Unnumbered is disabled, type in the WAN IP address for the
account.
Subnet Mask
If IP Unnumbered is disabled, type in the subnet mask for the WAN
interface.
16
DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
Connect / Disconnect Buttons
If you have enabled the Connect on Demand feature, the Router will begin to negotiate the WAN connection
upon restarting. If the Connect on Demand feature has been disabled, click the Connect button to initiate the
connection via the WAN interface. The process will take a few seconds. To end the WAN connection, click on
the Disconnect button.
Bridge Configuration
The DSL-1500 supports RFC 1483 sometimes called Bridged Ethernet. In bridge mode operation the device
does not have the same capabilities as it does when operating in router mode. Packet forwarding for a bridge is
limited to Layer 2, i.e. MAC address information only. A bridge operation may be appropriate when it is
necessary to bridge the WAN and LAN interface in order to support non-IP based protocols. Bridge mode may
also be best suited for LAN-to-LAN operations.
Bridge with RFC 1483 Router/Bridge Configuration menu
If you change the Connection Profile to Bridge with RFC 1483 or Router with RFC 1483 the user changeable
parameters will be on the Connection Profile and the Encapsulation Method.
17
DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
IPoA Configuration
To use IPoA it is first necessary to add this option to the Connection Profile list in the Configuration menu. Use
the Connection Profile menu page (described below) to add an IPoA connection profile to the list.
Router with IPoA Router/Bridge Configuration menu
The IP Unnumbered option is enabled by default. If you have not been given specific IP settings to configure
for the device using IPoA, leave this option selected.
If the IP Unnumbered option is not enabled the IP settings must be specified, use the IP settings information
provided by your ISP. Type in the WAN interface IP Address and Subnet Mask for the account.
It is also possible to obtain IP settings for the WAN interface from a DHCP server. If you have DHCP service
for the WAN interface IP settings, check the DHCP client option.
18
DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
Adding and Changing Connection Profiles
Use the Connection Profile menu to add new profiles or change existing profiles. Creating a new connection
profile is necessary if your DSL service uses protocols that are not offered through the default Router/Bridge
Configuration menu. If it is necessary to change the PVC settings (the VPI and VCI values) for the DSL
connection, this is done using the Connection Profile menu. Do not change the VPI or VCI values unless you
receive explicit instructions to do so from your service provider. When a new connection profile is created it is
necessary to save the new profile and reboot the device before it can be selected in the Configuration menu.
To create a new Connection Profile: click any hyperlinked index number for an undefined profile
from the list, a new menu appears (see below).
To change an existing Connection Profile: click the hyperlinked index number the listed profile, a
new menu appears (see below).
NOTE: Connection profiles additions and changes must be saved and the
device must be rebooted before it can be used in the Router/Bridge
Configuration menu.
Connection Profile menu
The Connection Profile menu lists existing profiles. To change an existing profile click on the number for that
profile, the menu will appear. To add a new profile, click on an unused number to see the Connection Profile
Configuration menu. A profile may be deleted by clicking on the Delete button for that profile. If a profile is
deleted, this change must be saved or the configuration will remain in the non-volatile RAM of the Router.
The information displayed in the Connection Profile list is described below.
Profile Name
The name of the listed connection profile. Profile names may be up to 16
characters long with no spaces.
VPI
This is the Virtual Path Identifier for the profile. This is used to direct
data along a dedicated path on the ATM network backbone.
VCI
This is the Virtual Circuit Identifier for the profile. This is used to direct
data along a dedicated circuit within the listed VPI on the ATM network
backbone.
Connection Type
This is the protocol used (PPPoA, PPPoE, RFC 1483 or IPoA) and
device type (Router or Bridge) configured for the profile.

DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
NAT Configuration
Network Address Translation (NAT) is a routing protocol that allows your network to become a private network
that is isolated from, yet connected to the Internet. It does this by changing the IP address of packets from a
global IP address usable on the Internet to a local IP address usable on your private network (but not on the
Internet) and vice-versa. The Router allows up to 128 host IP addresses.
NAT has two major benefits. First, NAT allows many users to access the Internet using a single global IP
address. This can greatly reduce the costs associated with Internet access and helps alleviate the current shortage
of Internet IP addresses. Secondly, the NAT process creates an added degree of security by hiding your private
network behind one IP address. The NAT function will normally only allow incoming packets that are generated
in response to a request from a host within the LAN.
If your network uses web servers, FTP servers or other proxies used for data requests from outside the private
network, you can use NAT in conjunction with Port Redirection to allow appropriate use of your servers by
outside users. See the section on Port Redirection for more information.
For the purposes of network administration, NAT is almost indispensable. Hosts and servers on the internal
network can be moved easily. Using NAT together with DHCP can greatly reduce the workload of a network
manager while allowing tremendous flexibility.
To view the NAT Configuration menu, click on the NAT Configuration button:
NAT Configuration Menu
The following parameters can be configured using the NAT Configuration menu:
NAT Function
Default = enabled. Select enabled or disabled to enable or disable the NAT
function.
DMZ State
Default = disabled. Select enabled or disabled to enable or disable the DMZ
function.
DMZ IP Address
With the DMZ State enabled, type in the LAN IP address of a designated
DMZ device (see explanation below).
Interface
For users with multiple PVC accounts, you can configure NAT for each
profile. NAT is enabled by default for any additional profiles.
25
DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
DMZ IP Address
NAT may conflict with certain interactive applications such as video conferencing or playing Internet video
games. For these applications, a NAT bypass can be set up using a DMZ IP address. The DMZ IP address is a
“visible” address and does not benefit from the full protection of the NAT function. Therefore it is advisable that
other security precautions be enabled to protect the other computers and devices on the LAN. It may be wise to
isolate the device with the DMZ IP address from the rest of the LAN.
For example, if you want to use video conferencing and still use NAT, you can use the DMZ IP address function.
In this case, you must have a PC or server through which video conferencing will take place. The IP address of
this PC or server will then be the DMZ IP address. You can designate the server’s IP address as the DMZ by
typing in the IP address in the DMZ IP Address space provided and clicking the OK button.
For the system that uses the DMZ IP address, you may want to manually assign an IP address to it and adjust
your DHCP server addresses so that the DMZ IP address is not included in the DHCP server range. This way
you avoid possible IP address problems if you reboot the DMZ system.
IP Masquerade Pass Through
Since certain protocols have difficulty operating in conjunction with NAT, the Router can forward these packets
without subjecting them to NAT address mapping. In particular, IPsec (a special network security protocol) and
PPTP (a tunneling protocol used for virtual private networks) are not compatible with NAT. For this reason, the
Router is configured to allow them to pass by default. You may disable this using the IP Masquerade Pass
Through menu. To block in effect either packet type while NAT is running you must deselect the type here and
click the OK button.
IP Masquerade Pass Through

DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
IP Masquerade Timer
The IP Masquerade Timer is used to control how frequently the IP Masquerade table is updated. The IP
Masquerade table is used to map the internal LAN IP addresses to the external WAN global IP address used for
your account. If you are familiar with Ethernet switching, you can think of the IP Masquerade Timer as being
similar to a MAC address table timeout in a switch.
IP Masquerade Timer
To change the IP Masquerade for the default settings, select the time for TCP or UDP packets from their
respective drop-down menus and click the OK button.

DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
Port Redirection
Port Redirection Menu
The Port Redirection feature of the Router is used in conjunction with NAT or IP Masquerading to improve
security and efficiency. Port redirection can be used to direct potentially hazardous packets to a proxy server
outside your firewall. For example, you can configure the Router to direct HTTP packets to a designated HTTP
server in the DMZ. Other common applications might include directing incoming SMTP packets to an Email
server for data scrutiny and improved network efficiency.
Port Redirection can be used to redirect TCP or UDP packets to a specified port and a specified IP address on
your local network. You can define a set of instructions for a specific incoming port or for a range of incoming
ports. Each instruction set or rule is indexed and can be modified or deleted later as needed.
The user changeable variables available for Port Redirection are listed in the table below.
28
DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
Port redirection is universally enabled or disabled for the Router with the Port Redirection State drop-down
menu. The Existing Entry number tells you how many sets currently are configured. The Valid Entry number
tells you the number of sets that are active.

Advanced Filter & Firewall
One of the most important elements of any network security implementation is the firewall. Packet filtering is a
basic firewall security measure and should be used on any network that is exposed to security risk. A packet
filter system examines data packets and scrutinizes them in order to control network access. Filtering rules
determine whether packets are passed through the Router from either side of the gateway. The rules are created
and controlled by the network administrator and can be precisely defined. These rules are used to block access to
the LAN from outside the network and/or to deny access to the WAN from within the network. The Router uses
filtering rules to examine data packet headers for specific information. Packets passing through the Router that
do not meet the criteria specified by the rule set are dropped.
In order to improve network security without severely limiting network efficiency, it is important to carefully
plan the sets of access rules. Effective implementation of packet filtering requires detailed knowledge of network
services and communication protocols. An overly complicated filtering scheme can adversely affect Router
performance, while an inadequate set of rules may needlessly compromise security.
Filtering rules can be precisely defined based upon source and destination IP address, as well as port and
protocol information.
Filter & Firewall Main Menu
The Existing Entry number tells you how many routes are currently configured. The Valid Entry number tells
you the number of routes that are enabled. Filtering can be universally enabled or disabled with the drop-down
IP Filter State drop-down menu.
31
DSL-1500G SHDSL Ethernet Router User’s Guide
Define these variables for each filter rule:
Select index to set

number to the new rule. If you are deleting or modifying an existing rule,
select it and click the appropriate button to the right.
Item Name
Name filtering rule defined here.
State
Select Enabled to start using the static route when it is applied. To save a
route you do not want to use now for later use without deleting it you can
choose Disabled.
Pass or Block
Choose Block to drop packets as defined by the rule. The default Pass will
route data without restriction as a normal packet.
Interface
Choose Ethernet or select a WAN interface. If you have a single PVC and
have not modified the name of the WAN interface, it appears here as ISP1
(the default name for the WAN interface).
Protocol
Select ICMP, TCP, UDP or All to pass or block packets of that protocol type.
Source
Type in the source IP address and select the Subnet Mask to pass or block
packets form that IP address.
< specifies the port numbers less than and equal to the Start Port number
> specifies the port numbers greater than and equal to the Start Port number
= sets the port number equal to the Start Port if there is no End Port specified; if an End Port
number is specified, this defines a range of ports to filter. The range is defined as the port numbers
between the Start Port and End Port, including the Start and End Port numbers.
Start Port
For a range of ports, this will be the first port in the range. For a single port
enter the port number.
End Port
For a range of ports, this will be the last port in the range. For a single port
just enter the same port number entered in Start Port.
Destination
Type in the destination IP address and select the Subnet Mask to pass or
block packets destined to that IP address.
To delete or modify an existing rule, select the index number and click the action button for Delete or Modify.
Clicking on the Clear button will set the variables to the blank or default setting.

System Maintenance
The Mainatenance folder in the web mananger contains links to menus used for sytem maintenance functions
including firmware upgarde and username/password configuration.
ATM Loopback Test
ATM loopback tests are used to verify connectivity and path integrity along a specified ATM circuit. In the test,
a cell is sent to an endpoint or to the end of the first segment of the ATM path. If the path is available and the
connections are functioning, an test cell will be returned along the same ATM path and be detected by the
device. This is very similar to a Ping test. The test can help to determine if connectivity problems originate from
outside the LAN.
ATM Loopback Screen
To perform the test, define the following parameters:
VPI
Type in the VPI setting used for the network connection.
VCI
Type in the VCI setting used for the network connection.
F4/F5
Choose F4 (Virtual Path) or F5 (Virtual Connection) from the pull-down menu to
define the flow type. An F4 flow test is used to verify that ATM network information
(ATM cells) can be shared between network elements. This information is used
within virtual paths to report an unavailable path or a virtual path that cannot be
guaranteed. An F5 flow test is also used to verify that ATM network information can
be shared between network elements. This information is used within virtual
connections to report degraded virtual channel performance such as late arriving
cells, lost cells, and cell insertion problems.
etoe/segment
Select the test type from the remaining pull-down menu. Choose End-to-End to test
the entire path from the Router to the ATM connection endpoint. Choose segment
to test the path from the Router to the end of the first ATM connection segment.
Status
A success or fail message appears here after the test is completed. If the reply cell
is received within the standard-defined time, the Status will read OK. This indicates
that the specified test path is functioning normally and all connections were
successful. If the Status reads Fail, there is a fault in the segment or path tested.
When all the test parameters have been specified, click on the Loop Test button to initiate the test.
