The router can be connected to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) in
any of the following ways :
- Dynamic IP Address
- PPPoE
- Static IP address
Passwords can contain from 3-12 alphanumeric characters and are case
sensitive.
Note
If you lost the password, or you cannot gain access to the user interface,
press the reset button on the rear panel, holding it down for at least
five seconds to restore the factory defaults. By default, there is no
password to login to the user interface.
4.4.1 Dynamic IP Address
! Warning
When you reset the Wireless Router using the reset button, all
configuration settings will be lost, also your ISP setting (Internet Service
Provider).
Enter a maximum Idle Time Out (in minutes) to define a maximum
period of time for which the login session is maintained during inactivity.
If the connection is inactive for longer than the maximum idle time, it

4.3.3 Remote management
This page allows you to obtain an IP address automatically from your
Service Provider.
4.4.2 PPPoE
By default, management access is only available to users on your local
network. However, you can also manage the Wireless Router from a
remote host by entering the IP address of a remote computer on this
screen. Check the Enabled check box, and enter the IP address of the
Host Address and click "SAVE SETTINGS".
PPPoE is a common connection method used for xDSL.
Note
If you check Enable and specify an IP address of 0.0.0.0, any remote host
can manage the Wireless Router.
For remote management via WAN IP address you need to connect
using port 8080. Simply enter WAN IP address followed by :8080, for
example, 212.120.68.20:8080.
Configuring the Wireless Router

4.4.3 Static IP Address
4.5 LAN
Your ISP provides a static IP address to access Internet services.
You can enable DHCP to dynamically allocate IP addresses to your
client PCs, or configure filtering functions based on specific clients or
protocols. The router must have an IP address for the local network.
4.4.4 Clone MAC Address
4.6 WIRELESS
Some ISP’s require you to register your MAC address with them. If you
have done this, the MAC address of the router must be changed to the
MAC address that you supplied to your ISP.
4.4.5 DNS
The router can be quickly configured as a wireless access point for
roaming clients by setting the service set identifier (SSID) and channel
number. It also supports data encryption and client filtering. Check the
box to enable the wireless module function.
4.6.1 Channel and SSID
Domain Name Servers (DNS) are used to map a domain name (e.g.,
www.philips.com) with the IP address (e.g., 64.147.25.20). The DNS
address is usually configured automatically. If this is not the case, one or
more DNS address will be provided to you by your ISP.
However, if there is a DNS server that you would rather use, you need
to specify the IP address here.
10
You must specify a common radio channel and SSID (Service Set ID) to
be used by the Wireless Router and all of its wireless clients. Make sure
you configure all of its clients to the same values.
Configuring the Wireless Router
4.6.2 Access control
To manually configure the encryption key, enter five hexadecimal pairs
of digits for each 64-bit key, or enter 13 pairs for the single 128-bit key.
(A hexadecimal digit is a number or letter in the range 0-9 or A-F).
Note that WEP protects data transmitted between wireless nodes, but
does not protect any transmissions over your wired network or over
the Internet.
WPA
Access Control allows users to define the outgoing traffic permitted or
not-permitted through the WAN interface. The default is to permit all
outgoing traffic.
4.6.3 Security
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) combines temporal key integrity
protocol (TKIP) and 802.1x mechanisms. It provides dynamic key
encryption and 802.1x authentication service.
802.1X
The router can transmit your data securely over the wireless network.
Matching security mechanisms must be setup on your router and
wireless client devices. You can choose the allowed security
mechanisms in this page and configure them in the sub-pages.
WEP
If 802.1x is used in your network, then you should enable this function
for the Wireless Router. These parameters are used for the Wireless
Router to connect to the authentication server.
4.7 NAT
If you use WEP to protect your wireless network, you need to set the
same parameters for the Wireless Router and all your wireless clients.
You may automatically generate encryption keys or manually enter the
keys. To generate the key automatically with passphrase, check the
Passphrase box, enter a string of characters. Select the default key from
the drop down menu. Click "SAVE SETTINGS".
Note
The passphrase can consist of up to 32 alphanumeric characters.
Configuring the Wireless Router
Network Address Translation allows multiple users to access the
Internet sharing one public IP.
Check the box to enable the NAT module function.
11
4.7.1 Address Mapping
4.7.3 Special Applications
Allows one or more public IP addresses to be shared by multiple
internal users. This also hides the internal network for increased privacy
and security. Enter the Public IP address you wish to share into the
Global IP field. Enter a range of internal IPs that will share the global IP
into the "from" field.
Some applications require multiple connections, such as Internet
gaming, video-conferencing, and Internet telephony.
These applications may not work when Network Address Translation
(NAT) is enabled. If you need to run applications that require multiple
connections, use these pages to specify the additional public ports to be
opened for each application.
4.7.2 Virtual server
4.7.4 NAT Mapping Table
If you configure the Wireless Router as a virtual server, remote users
accessing services such as web or FTP at your local site via public IP
addresses can be automatically redirected to local servers configured
with private IP addresses. In other words, depending on the requested
service (TCP/UDP port number), the Wireless Router redirects the
external service request to the appropriate server (located at another
internal IP address).
This page displays the current NAPT (Network Address Port
Translation) address mappings.
4.8 FIREWALL
For example, if you set Type/Public Port to TCP/80 (HTTP or web) and
the Private IP/Port to 192.168.2.2/80, then all HTTP requests from
outside users will be transferred to 192.168.2.2 on port 80. Therefore,
by just entering the IP address provided by the ISP, Internet users can
access the service they need at the local address to which you redirect
them.
A list of ports is maintained at the following link :
http://www.iana.org/assignments/ports-numbers
The Wireless Router’s firewall inspects packets at the application layer,
maintains TCP and UDP session information including time-outs and the
number of active sessions, and provides the ability to detect and prevent
certain types of network attacks.
12
Configuring the Wireless Router
Network attacks that deny access to a network device are called
Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks. DoS attacks are aimed at devices and
networks with a connection to the Internet. Their goal is not to steal
information, but to disable a device or network so users no longer have
access to network resources.
4.8.3 URL blocking
The Wireless Router firewall function protects against the following
DoS attacks : IP Spoofing, Land Attack, Ping of Death, IP with zero
length, Smurf Attack, UDP port loopback, Snork Attack, TCP null scan,
and TCP SYN flooding.
The firewall does not significantly affect system performance, so we
advise leaving it enabled to protect your network. Select "Enable" and
click the "SAVE SETTINGS" button to open the Firewall submenus.
4.8.1 Access Control
The Wireless Router allows the user to block access to web sites by
entering either a full URL address or just a keyword. This feature can be
used to protect children from accessing violent or pornographic web
sites.
4.8.4 Schedule rule
Access Control allows users to define the outgoing traffic permitted or
not-permitted through the WAN interface. The default is to permit all
outgoing traffic.
To add the PC to the filtering table :
1- Click "Add PC" on the Access Control screen
2- Define the appropriate settings for client PC services
3- Click "OK" and then click "SAVE SETTINGS" to save your settings
4.8.2 MAC Filter
You may filter Internet access for local clients based on rules. Each
access control rule may be activated at a scheduled time. Define the
time schedule on this page, and apply the rule on the Access Control
page.
4.8.5 Intrusion detection
The Wireless Router can also limit the network access based on the
MAC address. The MAC Filtering Table allows the Wireless Router to
enter up to 32 MAC addresses that are allowed to access to the WAN
port.
1- Click "Yes" to enable, or "No" to disable this function
2- Enter the MAC address in the space provided and click "Save
Settings" to confirm
Configuring the Wireless Router
Intrusion Detection Feature
Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) and Anti-DoS firewall protection
(Default : Enabled) - The Intrusion Detection Feature of the Wireless
Router limits access for incoming traffic at the WAN port. When the
SPI feature is turned on, all incoming packets will be blocked except for
those types marked in the Stateful Packet Inspection section.
13
RIP Defect (Default : Disabled) - If an RIP request packet is not
acknowledged to by the router, it will stay in the input queue and not
be released. Accumulated packets could cause the input queue to fill,
causing severe problems for all protocols. enabling this feature prevents
the packets from accumulating.
Discard Ping to WAN (Default : Disabled) - Prevent a ping on the
Wireless Router’s WAN port from being routed to the network.
two-way Internet access. Enter the IP address of a DMZ (Demilitarized
Zone) host on this screen. Adding a client to the DMZ may expose your
local network to a variety of security risks, so only use this option as a
last resort.
4.9 UPnP
Scroll down to view more information.
Stateful Packet Inspection
This is called a "Stateful" packet inspection because it examines the
contents of the packet to determine the state of the communications ;
i.e., it ensures that the stated destination computer has previously
requested the current communication. This is a way of ensuring that all
communications are initiated by the recipient computer and are taking
place only with sources that are known and trusted from previous
interactions. In addition to being more rigorous in their inspection of
packets, stateful inspection firewalls also close off ports until connection
to the specific port is requested.
When particular types of traffic are checked, only the particular type of
traffic initiated from the internal LAN will be allowed. For example, if
the user only checks "FPT Service" in the Stateful Packet Inspection
section, all incoming traffic will be blocked except for FTP connections
initiated from the local LAN.
Stateful Packet Inspection allows you to select different application
types that are using dynamic port numbers. If you wish to use the
Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) to block packets, click on the Yes radio
button in the "Enable SPI and Anti-DoS firewall protection" field and
then check the inspection type that you need, such as Packet
Fragmentation, TCP Connection, UDP Session, FTP Service, H.323
Service, or TFTP Service.
UPNP (Universal Plug and Play) settings
With Universal Plug and Play, a device can automatically join a network,
obtain an IP address, communicate its capabilities, and learn about the
presence and capabilities of other devices. Devices can then directly
communicate with each other. This further enables peer-to-peer
networking.
4.10 DDNS
When hackers attempt to enter your network, the router can alert
you by e-mail
If the mail server needs to authenticate your indentification before
sending out any e-mail, please fill related information in POP3 server,
username and password fields. Otherwise leave the three fields blank.
Connection Policy
Enter the appropriate values for TCP/UDP sessions as described in the
following table.
Note
The firewall does not significantly affect system performance, so we
advise enabling the prevention features to protect your network.
4.8.6 DMZ
DDNS (Dynamic DNS) settings
DDNS text "Domain Name" is a series of alphanumeric strings
separated by periods that maps to the address of a network connection
and identifies the owner of the address.
Dynamic DNS provides users on the Internet with a method to tie their
domain name to a computer or server. DDNS allows your domain
name to follow your IP address automatically by having your DNS
records changed when your IP address changes.
The Server Configuration section automatically opens the TCP port
options checked in the Virtual Server section. Simply enter in the IP
Address of your server, such as a web server, and then click on the port
option HTTP Port 80 so users can access your web server from the
Internet connection.
This DNS feature is powered by a DDNS service provider. With
a DDNS connection you can host your own web site, email server, FTP
site, and more at your own location even if you have a dynamic IP
address. (Default : Disable)
If you have a client PC that cannot run an Internet application properly
from behind the firewall, you can open the client up to unrestricted
