Chapter 1:
Product Overview
Thank you for choosing the Linksys Wireless-G Broadband
Router. The Router lets you access the Internet via a
wireless connection, broadcast at up to 54 Mbps, or
through one of its four switched ports. You can also use
the Router to share resources such as computers, printers
and files. A variety of security features help to protect
your data and your privacy while online. Security features
include WPA2 security, a Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI)
firewall and NAT technology. Configuring the Router is
easy using the provided browser-based utility.
Front Panel
SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco
logo is the Router’s SecureEasySetup button. It
lights up and will stay orange when the Router
is powered on. The color orange indicates that
the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup
feature, while the color white indicates that the
Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature.
When the Router enters SecureEasySetup
mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and
start flashing. After the Router has generated
the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco
logo will stop flashing and stay white.
To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press
and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.
The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router
resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to
indicate a successful reset.
NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes
it easy to set up your wireless network. If you
have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router’s
Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.
Power (Green) The Power LED lights up
and will stay on while the Router is powered
on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this
LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete,
the LED will be solidly lit.
DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when
the DMZ function is being used. This LED will
remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled.
WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when
the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is
flashing, the Router is actively sending or
receiving data over the network.
1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs,
corresponding with the numbered ports on the
Router’s back panel, serve two purposes. If the
LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully
connected to a device through that port. A
flashing LED indicates network activity over
that port.

Wireless Security Checklist
Wireless networks are convenient and easy to install, so
homes with high-speed Internet access are adopting them
at a rapid pace. Because wireless networking operates by
sending information over radio waves, it can be more
vulnerable to intruders than a traditional wired network.
Like signals from your cellular or cordless phones, signals
from your wireless network can also be intercepted. Since
you cannot physically prevent someone from connecting
to your wireless network, you need to take some additional
steps to keep your network secure.
Wireless Security Checklist
4. Enable encryption
Encryption protects data transmitted over a wireless
network. Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA/WPA2) and Wired
Equivalency Privacy (WEP) offer different levels of security
for wireless communication. Currently, devices that are
Wi-Fi certified are required to support WPA2, but are not
required to support WEP.
A network encrypted with WPA/WPA2 is more secure
than a network encrypted with WEP, because WPA/WPA2
uses dynamic key encryption. To protect the information
as it passes over the airwaves, you should enable the
highest level of encryption supported by your network
equipment.
1. Change the default wireless network name or SSID
WEP is an older encryption standard and may be the
only option available on some older devices that do not

Wireless devices have a default wireless network name
or Service Set Identifier (SSID) set by the factory. This

General Network Security Guidelines
2. Change the default password
For wireless products such as access points and routers,
you will be asked for a password when you want to change
their settings. These devices have a default password set
by the factory. The Linksys default password is admin.
Hackers know these defaults and may try to use them
to access your wireless device and change your network
settings. To thwart any unauthorized changes, customize
the device’s password so it will be hard to guess.
•• Disable file sharing (peer-to-peer). Some applications
may open file sharing without your consent and/or
knowledge.
Additional Security Tips
•• Keep wireless routers, access points, or gateways away
from exterior walls and windows.
•• Turn wireless routers, access points, or gateways
off when they are not being used (at night, during
vacations).
•• Use strong passphrases that are at least eight characters
3. Enable MAC address filtering
Linksys routers give you the ability to enable Media Access
Control (MAC) address filtering. The MAC address is a
unique series of numbers and letters assigned to every
networking device. With MAC address filtering enabled,
wireless network access is provided solely for wireless
devices with specific MAC addresses. For example, you can
specify the MAC address of each computer in your home
so that only those computers can access your wireless
network.

manufacturer of your wireless products. To turn on the
Frame Burst option, select Enable. The default is Disable.
Beacon Interval The default value is 100. Enter a value
between 1 and 65,535 milliseconds. The Beacon Interval
value indicates the frequency interval of the beacon. A
beacon is a packet broadcast by the Router to synchronize

Authentication Type The default is set to Auto, which
allows either Open System or Shared Key authentication
to be used. With Open System authentication, the sender
and the recipient do NOT use a WEP key for authentication.
With Shared Key authentication, the sender and recipient
use a WEP key for authentication.
Basic Rate The Basic Rate setting is not actually one rate
of transmission but a series of rates at which the Router
can transmit. The Router will advertise its Basic Rate to the
other wireless devices in your network, so they know which
rates will be used. The Router will also advertise that it will
automatically select the best rate for transmission. The
default setting is Default, when the Router can transmit
at all standard wireless rates (1-2Mbps, 5.5Mbps, 11Mbps,
18Mbps, and 24Mbps). Other options are 1-2Mbps, for
use with older wireless technology, and All, when the
Router can transmit at all wireless rates. The Basic Rate
is not the actual rate of data transmission. If you want to
specify the Router’s rate of data transmission, configure
the Transmission Rate setting.
Transmission Rate The rate of data transmission should
be set depending on the speed of your wireless network.
You can select from a range of transmission speeds, or you
can select Auto to have the Router automatically use the
fastest possible data rate and enable the Auto-Fallback
feature. Auto-Fallback will negotiate the best possible
connection speed between the Router and a wireless

DTIM Interval This value, between 1 and 255, indicates
the interval of the Delivery Traffic Indication Message
(DTIM). A DTIM field is a countdown field informing
clients of the next window for listening to broadcast
and multicast messages. When the Router has buffered
broadcast or multicast messages for associated clients, it
sends the next DTIM with a DTIM Interval value. Its clients
hear the beacons and awaken to receive the broadcast
and multicast messages. The default value is 1.
Fragmentation Threshold This value specifies the
maximum size for a packet before data is fragmented
into multiple packets. If you experience a high packet
error rate, you may slightly increase the Fragmentation
Threshold. Setting the Fragmentation Threshold too low
may result in poor network performance. Only minor
reduction of the default value is recommended. In most
cases, it should remain at its default value of 2346.
RTS Threshold Should you encounter inconsistent data
flow, only minor reduction of the default value, 2347, is
recommended. If a network packet is smaller than the
preset RTS threshold size, the RTS/CTS mechanism will
not be enabled. The Router sends Request to Send (RTS)
frames to a particular receiving station and negotiates
the sending of a data frame. After receiving an RTS, the
wireless station responds with a Clear to Send (CTS) frame
to acknowledge the right to begin transmission. The RTS
Threshold value should remain at its default value of
2347.

devices on your network from each other. Wireless devices
will be able to communicate with the Router but not with
each other. To use this function, select On. AP Isolation is

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright © 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301,
USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim
copies of this license document, but changing it is not
allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away
your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the
GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your
34
Appendix E
freedom to share and change free software–to make sure
the software is free for all its users. This General Public
License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation’s
software and to any other program whose authors
commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation
software is covered by the GNU Lesser General Public
License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to
freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are
designed to make sure that you have the freedom to
distribute copies of free software (and charge for this
service if you wish), that you receive source code or can
get it if you want it, that you can change the software or
use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know
you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that
forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to
surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain
responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the
software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program,
whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients
all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they,
too, receive or can get the source code. And you must
show them these terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the
software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you
legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the
software.
Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to
make certain that everyone understands that there is no
warranty for this free software. If the software is modified
by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients
to know that what they have is not the original, so that
any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the
original authors’ reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by
software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that
redistributors of a free program will individually obtain
patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary.
To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must
be licensed for everyone’s free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution
and modification follow.
Wireless-G Broadband Router
Software License Agreement
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND
MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work
which contains a notice placed by the copyright
holder saying it may be distributed under the terms
of this General Public License. The “Program”, below,
refers to any such program or work, and a “work based
on the Program” means either the Program or any
derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a
work containing the Program or a portion of it, either
verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into
another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included
without limitation in the term “modification”.) Each
licensee is addressed as “you”.
Activities other than copying, distribution and
modification are not covered by this License; they
are outside its scope. The act of running the Program
is not restricted, and the output from the Program is
covered only if its contents constitute a work based on
the Program (independent of having been made by
running the Program). Whether that is true depends
on what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the
Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium,
provided that you conspicuously and appropriately
publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice
and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices
that refer to this License and to the absence of any
warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program
a copy of this License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring
a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty
protection in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program
or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the
Program, and copy and distribute such modifications
or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided
that you also meet all of these conditions:
a. You must cause the modified files to carry
prominent notices stating that you changed the
files and the date of any change.
b. You must cause any work that you distribute or
publish, that in whole or in part contains or is
derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be
licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties
under the terms of this License.
35
Appendix E
c. If the modified program normally reads commands
interactively when run, you must cause it, when
started running for such interactive use in the most
ordinary way, to print or display an announcement
including an appropriate copyright notice and
a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying
that you provide a warranty) and that users may
redistribute the program under these conditions,
and telling the user how to view a copy of
this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is
interactive but does not normally print such an
announcement, your work based on the Program
is not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as
a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not
derived from the Program, and can be reasonably
considered independent and separate works in
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not
apply to those sections when you distribute them as
separate works. But when you distribute the same
sections as part of a whole which is a work based on
the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on
the terms of this License, whose permissions for other
licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each
and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights
or contest your rights to work written entirely by you;
rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the
distribution of derivative or collective works based on
the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not
based on the Program with the Program (or with a
work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage
or distribution medium does not bring the other work
under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a
work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or
executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2
above provided that you also do one of the following:
a. Accompany it with the complete corresponding
machine-readable source code, which must be
distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2
above on a medium customarily used for software
interchange; or,
b. Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least
three years, to give any third party, for a charge
no more than your cost of physically performing
source distribution, a complete machine-readable
copy of the corresponding source code, to be
distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2
above on a medium customarily used for software
interchange; or,
Wireless-G Broadband Router
Software License Agreement
c. Accompany it with the information you received as
to the offer to distribute corresponding source code.
(This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial
distribution and only if you received the program
in object code or executable form with such an
offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form
of the work for making modifications to it. For an
executable work, complete source code means all
the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts
used to control compilation and installation of the
executable. However, as a special exception, the source
code distributed need not include anything that is
normally distributed (in either source or binary form)
with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so
on) of the operating system on which the executable
runs, unless that component itself accompanies the
executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made
by offering access to copy from a designated place,
then offering equivalent access to copy the source
code from the same place counts as distribution of
the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object
code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute
the Program except as expressly provided under
this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify,
sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will
automatically terminate your rights under this License.
However, parties who have received copies, or rights,
from you under this License will not have their licenses
terminated so long as such parties remain in full
compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you
have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you
permission to modify or distribute the Program or its
derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if
you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying
or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License
to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying,
distributing or modifying the Program or works based
on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work
based on the Program), the recipient automatically
receives a license from the original licensor to copy,
distribute or modify the Program subject to these
terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights
granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing
compliance by third parties to this License.
36
Software License Agreement
Appendix E
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation
of patent infringement or for any other reason (not
limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on
you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise)
that contradict the conditions of this License, they do
not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If
you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously
your obligations under this License and any other
pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Program at all. For example,
if a patent license would not permit royalty-free
redistribution of the Program by all those who receive
copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only
way you could satisfy both it and this License would be
to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or
unenforceable under any particular circumstance,
the balance of the section is intended to apply and
the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to
infringe any patents or other property right claims or
to contest validity of any such claims; this section has
the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free
software distribution system, which is implemented
by public license practices. Many people have
made generous contributions to the wide range of
software distributed through that system in reliance
on consistent application of that system; it is up to
the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to
distribute software through any other system and a
licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear
what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this
License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is
restricted in certain countries either by patents or by
copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder
who places the Program under this License may add an
explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only
in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case,
this License incorporates the limitation as if written in
the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised
and/or new versions of the General Public License
from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in
spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number.
If the Program specifies a version number of this
License which applies to it and “any later version”, you
have the option of following the terms and conditions
either of that version or of any later version published
by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does
Wireless-G Broadband Router
not specify a version number of this License, you
may choose any version ever published by the Free
Software Foundation.
10.If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into
other free programs whose distribution conditions are
different, write to the author to ask for permission. For
software which is copyrighted by the Free Software
Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we
sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will
be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status
of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting
the sharing and reuse of software generally.
NO WARRANTY
11.BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE,
THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE
EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT
WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE
PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY
KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING,
BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND
PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.
SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU
ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12.IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR
AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER,
OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE,
BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO
USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO
LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE
OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR
A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY
OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER
PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
SUCH DAMAGES.
