Chapter 1: Introduction
Introduction to your Router
Welcome to the VoIP/ 802.11g ADSL2+ Firewall Router. The router is an “all-in-one” VoIP ADSL
router, combining an ADSL modem, ADSL router, Ethernet network switch and 1 port for Voice
over IP functionalities, providing everything you need to get the machines on your network
connected to the Internet over your ADSL broadband connection. With features such as a QuickStart wizard and DHCP Server, you can be online in no time at all and with a minimum of fuss and
configuration, catering for first-time users to the guru requiring advanced features and control over
their Internet connection and network.
Features
Express Internet Access
The router complies with ADSL worldwide standards. It supports downstream rate up to 12/24
Mbps with ADSL2/2+, 8Mbps with ADSL. Users enjoy not only high-speed ADSL services but also
broadband multimedia applications such as interactive gaming, video streaming and real-time
audio much easier and faster than ever. It is compliant with Multi-Mode standard (ANSI T1.413,
Issue 2; G.dmt (ITU G.992.1); G.lite (ITU G.992.2); G.hs (ITU G994.1); G.dmt.bis (ITU G.992.3);
G.dmt.bis.plus (ITU G.992.5)).
Voice over IP compliance with SIP standard
The router supports cost-effective, toll-quality voice calls over the Internet. It complies with the most
popular industrial standard, SIP protocol, to ensure the interoperability with SIP devices and major
VoIP Gateways. The VoIP router supports call waiting, silence suppression, voice activity detection
(VAD), comfort noise generation (CNG), line echo cancellation, caller ID (Bell 202, V3) and so on.
802.11g Wireless AP with WPA Support (Wireless Router only)
With integrated 802.11g Wireless Access Point in the router, the device offers a quick and easy
access among wired network, wireless network and broadband connection with single device
simplicity, and as a result, mobility to the users. In addition to 54 Mbps 802.11g data rate, it also
interoperates backward with existing 802.11b equipment. The Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA-PSK
and WPA2-PSK) and Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) supported features enhance the security
level of data protection and access control via Wireless LAN.
Fast Ethernet Switch
A 4-port 10/100Mbps fast Ethernet switch is built in with automatic switching between MDI and
MDI-X for 10Base-T and 100Base-TX ports. An Ethernet straight or crossover cable can be used
directly for auto detection.
EWAN
Besides using ADSL to get connected to the Internet, the router offers its Ethernet port 1 as a WAN
port to be used to connect to Cable Modems, VDSL and fibre optic lines. This alternative, yet faster
method to connect to the internet will provide users more flexibility to get online.
1
Dual WAN
Dual WAN is a new way of getting connected to the internet which is to use two of the ADSL/EWAN
to deal with the unexpected case and balance traffic load. That is a way of improving greatly the
robustness.
Multi-Protocol to Establish a Connection
It supports PPPoA (RFC 2364 - PPP over ATM Adaptation Layer 5), RFC 1483 encapsulation
overATM (bridged or routed), PPP over Ethernet (RFC 2516), and IPoA (RFC1577) to establish a
connection with the ISP. The product also supports VC-based and LLC-based multiplexing.
Quick Installation Wizard
It supports a WEB GUI page to install this device quickly. With this wizard, end users can enter the
information easily which they get from their ISP, then surf the Internet immediately.
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and UPnP NAT Traversal
This protocol is used to enable simple and robust connectivity among stand-alone devices and PCs
from many different vendors. It makes network simple and affordable for users. UPnP architecture
leverages TCP/IP and the Web to enable seamless proximity networking in addition to control and
data transfer among networked devices. With this feature enabled, users can now connect to Net
meeting or MSN Messenger seamlessly.
Network Address Translation (NAT)
Allows multi-users to access outside resources such as the Internet simultaneously with one IP
address/one Internet access account. Many application layer gateway (ALG) are supported such
as web browser, ICQ, FTP, Telnet, E-mail, News, Net2phone, Ping, NetMeeting, IP phone and
others.
SOHO Firewall Security with DoS and SPI
Along with the built-in NAT natural firewall feature, the router also provides advanced hacker
pattern-filtering protection. It can automatically detect and block Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.
The router is built with Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) to determine if a data packet is allowed
through the firewall to the private LAN.
Domain Name System (DNS) Relay
It provides an easy way to map the domain name (a friendly name for users such as
www.yahoo.com) and IP address. When a local machine sets its DNS server with this router’s IP
address, every DNS conversion request packet from the PC to this router will be forwarded to the
real DNS in the outside network.
Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS)
The Dynamic DNS service allows you to alias a dynamic IP address to a static hostname. This
dynamic IP address is the WAN IP address. For example, to use the service, you must first apply
for an account from a DDNS service like http://www.dyndns.org/. More than 5 DDNS servers are
supported.
Quality of Service (QoS)
QoS gives you full control over which types of outgoing data traffic should be given priority by the
router, ensuring important data like gaming packets, customer information, or management
information move through the router ay lightning speed, even under heavy load. The QoS features
are configurable by source IP address, destination IP address, protocol, and port. You can throttle
the speed at which different types of outgoing data pass through the router, to ensure P2P users
don’t saturate upload bandwidth, or office browsing doesn’t bring client web serving to a halt. In
addition, or alternatively, you can simply change the priority of different types of upload data and let
the router sort out the actual speeds.
IPv6 supported
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is a version of the Internet Protocol that is designed to succeed
IPv4.
IPv6 has a vastly larger address space than IPv4. This results from the use of a 128-bit address,
whereas IPv4 uses only 32 bits. The new address space thus supports 2128 (about 3.4×1038)
addresses. This expansion provides flexibility in allocating addresses and routing traffic and
eliminates the primary need for network address translation (NAT), which gained widespread
deployment as an effort to alleviate IPv4 address exhaustion.
IPv6 also implements new features that simplify aspects of address assignment (stateless address
autoconfiguration) and network renumbering (prefix and router announcements) when changing
Internet connectivity providers. The IPv6 subnet size has been standardized by fixing the size of the
host identifier portion of an address to 64 bits to facilitate an automatic mechanism for forming the
host identifier from Link Layer media addressing information (MAC address).
Network security is integrated into the design of the IPv6 architecture. Internet Protocol Security
(IPsec) was originally developed for IPv6, but found widespread optional deployment first in IPv4
(into which it was back-engineered). The IPv6 specifications mandate IPsec implementation as a
fundamental interoperability requirement.
Virtual Server (“port forwarding”)
Users can specify some services to be visible from outside users. The router can detect incoming
service requests and forward either a single port or a range of ports to the specific local computer
to handle it. For example, a user can assign a PC in the LAN acting as a WEB server inside and
expose it to the outside network. Outside users can browse inside web servers directly while it is
protected by NAT. A DMZ host setting is also provided to a local computer exposed to the outside
network, Internet.
Rich Packet Filtering
Not only filters the packet based on IP address, but also based on Port numbers. It will filter
packets from and to the Internet, and also provides a higher level of security control.
3
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Client and Server
In the WAN site, the DHCP client can get an IP address from the Internet Service Provider (ISP)
automatically. In the LAN site, the DHCP server can allocate a range of client IP addresses and
distribute them including IP address, subnet mask as well as DNS IP address to local computers. It
provides an easy way to manage the local IP network.
Static and RIP1/2 Routing
It has routing capability and supports easy static routing table or RIP1/2 routing protocol.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
It is an easy way to remotely manage the router via SNMP.
Web based GUI
It supports web based GUI for configuration and management. It is user-friendly and comes with
on-line help. It also supports remote management capability for remote users to configure and
manage this product.
Firmware Upgradeable
Device can be upgraded to the latest firmware through the WEB based GUI.
Rich Management Interfaces
It supports flexible management interfaces with local console port, LAN port, and WAN port. Users
can use terminal applications through the console port to configure and manage the device, or
Telnet, WEB GUI, and SNMP through LAN or WAN ports to configure and manage the device.

Cabling
One of the most common causes of problem is bad cabling or ADSL line(s). Make sure that all
connected devices are turned on. On the front panel of your router is a bank of LEDs. Verify that the
LAN Link and ADSL line LEDs are lit. If they are not, verify if you are using the proper cables.
Make sure that all devices (e.g. telephones, fax machines, analogue modems) connected to the same
telephone line as your router have a line filter connected between them and the wall outlet (unless
you are using a Central Splitter or Central Filter installed by a qualified and licensed electrician),
and that all line filters are correctly installed in a right way. If line filter is not installed and connected
properly, it may cause problem to your ADSL connection or may result in frequent disconnections.
Chapter 3: Basic Installation
The router can be configured through your web browser. A web browser is included as a standard
application
in
the
following
operating
systems:
Linux,
Mac
OS,
Windows
98/NT/2000/XP/Me/Vista/7, etc. The product provides an easy and user-friendly interface for
configuration.
Please check your PC network components. The TCP/IP protocol stack and Ethernet network
adapter must be installed. If not, please refer to your Windows-related or other operating system
manuals.
There are ways to connect the router, either through an external repeater hub or connect directly
to your PCs. However, make sure that your PCs have an Ethernet interface installed properly prior
to connecting the router device. You ought to configure your PCs to obtain an IP address through
a DHCP server or a fixed IP address that must be in the same subnet as the router. The default IP
address of the router is 192.168.1.254 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 (i.e. any attached PC
must be in the same subnet, and have an IP address in the range of 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.253).
The best and easiest way is to configure the PC to get an IP address automatically from the router
using DHCP. If you encounter any problem accessing the router web interface it is advisable to
uninstall your firewall program on your PCs, as they can cause problems accessing the IP address
of the router. Users should make their own decisions on what is best to protect their network.
Please follow the following steps to configure your PC network environment.

Ethernet
The router supports more than one Ethernet IP addresses in the LAN that supports multiple internet
access at the same time. Users usually only have one subnet in their LAN. The default IP address
for the router is 192.168.1.254.
Primary IP Address
IP Address: The default IP on this router.
Subnet Mask: The default subnet mask on this router.
RIP: RIP v1, RIP v2, and RIP v2 Multicast. Check to enable RIP function.
IP Alias
This function enables the creation of multiple virtual IP interfaces for this router. It helps to connect two
or more local networks to the ISP or remote node. In this case, an internal router is not required.
IP Address: Specify an IP address for this virtual interface.
Netmask: Specify a subnet mask for this virtual interface.
Security Interface: Specify the firewall setting for this virtual interface.
Internal: This mean the network is behind NAT. All traffic will do network address translation
when sending out data to the Internet if NAT is enabled.
External: This means there is no NAT on this IP interface and it is connected directly to the
Internet. This function is mostly used when you are provided with multiple public IP addresses
by the ISP. In this case, you can use the public IP address in the local network whose gateway
IP address points to the IP address on this interface.
DMZ: Specify this network to a DMZ area. There is no NAT on this interface.
37
IPv6 Autoconfig
The IPv6 address composes of two parts, thus, the prefix and the interface ID.
BiPAC 7401VGP R3 dynamically configure IPv6 address on host with Stateless auto-configuration
mode. Stateless auto-configuration requires no manual configuration of hosts, minimal (if any)
configuration of routers, and no additional servers. The stateless mechanism allows a host to
generate its own addresses using a combination of locally available information (MAC address) and
information(prefix) advertised by routers. Routers advertise prefixes that identify the subnet(s)
associated with a link, while hosts generate an "interface identifier" that uniquely identifies an
interface on a subnet. An address is formed by combining the two. When using stateless
configuration, you needn’t configure anything on the client.
Link Local Address: the Link local address for this device.
Dynamic IPv6 Address: this field displays the dynamic obtained IPv6 address if you haven’t set
static IPv6 address.
Interface Address/Prefix length: enter the static LAN IPv6 address.

Port Setting
This section allows you to configure the settings for the router’s Ethernet ports to solve some
of the compatibility problems that may be encountered while connecting to the Internet, as well
allowing users to tweak the performance of their network.
Port # Connection Type: There are Six options to choose from: Auto, disable, 10M half-duplex,
10M full-duplex, 100M half-duplex, 100M full-duplex and Disable. Sometimes, there are Ethernet
compatibility problems with legacy Ethernet devices, and you can configure different types to
solve compatibility issues. The default is Auto, which users should keep unless there are specific
problems with PCs not being able to access your LAN.
IPv4 TOS priority Control (Advanced users): TOS, Type of Services, is the 2nd octet of an IP
packet. Bits 6-7 of this octet are reserved and bit 0-5 are used to specify the priority of the packet.
This feature uses bits 0-5 to classify the packet’s priority. If the packet priority is set as high, its
transmission will be given the first priority it will not be constrained by the Rate Limit. Therefore,
when this feature is enabled, the router’s Ethernet switch will first check the 2nd octet of each IP
packet. If the value in the TOS field matches the values checked in the table (0 to 63), this packet
will be treated as high priority.
DHCP Server
You can disable or enable the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server or enable the
router’s DHCP relay functions. The DHCP protocol allows your router to dynamically assign IP
addresses to the PCs on your network if they are configured to obtain IP addresses automatically.
To disable the router DHCP Server, check Disabled and click Next, then click Apply. When the
DHCP Server is disabled you will need to manually assign a fixed IP address to each PC on your
network, and set the default gateway for each PC to the IP address of the router (by default this is
192.168.1.254).
To configure the router DHCP Server, check DHCP Server and click Next. You can then configure
parameters of the DHCP Server including the IP pool (starting IP address and ending IP address to
be allocated to PCs on your network), lease time for each assigned IP address (the period of time
the IP address assigned will be valid), DNS IP address and the gateway IP address. These details
are sent to the DHCP client (i.e. your PC) when it requests an IP address from the DHCP server.
Click Apply to enable this function. If you check Use Router as a DNS Server”, the Router will
perform the domain name lookup, find the IP address from the outside network automatically and
forward it back to the requesting PC in the LAN (your Local Area Network).
If you check DHCP Relay Agent and click Next, then you will have to enter the IP address of the
DHCP server which will assign an IP address back to the DHCP client in the LAN. Use this function
only if advised to do so by your network administrator or ISP.
Click Apply to enable this function.

rate or unstable problems. You may need to change the profile setting to reach the best ADSL line
rate, it depends on the differences of DSLAM and location.
Activate Line: When set to false, the system will abort the ADSL line connection. When set to true,
the system will reconnect the ADSL line.
Coding Gain: It reduces router’s transmit power which will effect to router’s downstream
performance. Higher the gain will increase the downstream rate but it sometimes causes unstable
ADSL line. The configurable ADSL coding gain is from 0 dB to 7dB, or automatic.
Tx Attenuation: It is the amount of power that modem (upstream) or DSLAM (downstream) is using.
The lower the power the better the performance will be in modem upstream.
Elapsed Time: This is the ADSL connection uptime.
77
System
Here are the items within the System section: Time Zone, Remote Access, Firmware Upgrade,
Backup/Restore, Restart, User Management and Mail Alert.
Time Zone
The router does not have a real time clock on board; instead, it uses the Simple Network Time
Protocol (SNTP) to get the current time from an SNTP server outside your network. Choose your
local time zone, click Enable and click the Apply button. After a successful connection to the Internet,
the router will retrieve the correct local time from the SNTP server you have specified. If you prefer
to specify an SNTP server other than those in the list, simply enter its IP address as shown above.
Your ISP may provide an SNTP server for you to use.
Daylight Saving is also known as Summer Time Period. Many places in the world adapt it during
summer time to move one hour of daylight from morning to the evening in local standard time. Check
Enable checkbox to set your local time.
Resync Period (in minutes) is the periodic interval the router will wait before it re-synchronizes the
router’s time with that of the specified SNTP server. In order to avoid unnecessarily increasing the
load on your specified SNTP server you should keep the poll interval as high as possible – at the
absolute minimum every few hours or even days.
78
Remote Access
This feature enables system administrator to set the time interval where the router can be accessed
for administration purpose from a remote site (i.e. from outside your LAN).
If you wish to permanently enable remote access, set the time period to 0 minute.
Firmware Upgrade
Your router firmware is the software that enables it to operate and provides all its functionality. Think
of your router as a dedicated computer, and the firmware as the software it runs. Over time this
software may be improved and revised, and your router allows you to upgrade the software it runs
to take advantage of these changes.
Clicking on Browse will allow you to select the new firmware image file you have downloaded to
your PC. Once the correct file is selected, click Upgrade to update the firmware in your router.
79
Backup / Restore
This function allows you to save a backup of the current configuration of your router to a file on your
PC, or to restore a previously saved configuration. This is very useful if you wish to customize the
setting of the router, knowing in advance that you can always restore the setting if any mistakes do
occur. Therefore, It is advisable that you create a backup of the configuration of your router before
customizing its configuration.
Create a Router Configuration Backup
To create a backup of the setting, simply press the Backup button and specify the location on where
to save your configuration file. You may also change the name of the file if you wish to keep multiple
backups.
Restoring the Router Configuration
To restore the configuration of the router, press Browse to locate the configuration file from your PC.
Once the file has been located, click on the file then click on the Restore button to load the setting.
Note: You should only restore the setting with the files that have been created using the
Backup function with the most current firmware version. Settings files saved to your PC
should not be manually edited in any way.
80
Restart Router
Click Restart with option Current Settings to reboot your router (and restore your last saved
configuration).
If you wish to restart the router using the factory default settings (for example, after a firmware
upgrade or if you have saved an incorrect configuration), select Factory Default Settings to reset to
factory default settings.
You may also reset your router to factory settings by holding the small Reset pinhole button more
than 6 seconds on the back of your router.
Caution: After pressing the RESET button for more than 6 seconds, to be sure you power
cycle the device again.
81
User Management
In order to prevent unauthorized access to your router’s configuration interface, it requires that all
users are to login the GUI with a password. You can set up multiple user accounts, each with their
own password. You can Edit any existing user accounts and Add new user account to grant access
to the device configuration interface.
Edit Account Information
You can change the information of any account whether the account is active or valid.
1. To edit an account, select the Edit radio button of the account to be edited. Once selected, all
information of that account will be displayed.
2. Delete the information to be edited and replace it with the new one.
3. When it is done, simply click on the Edit/ Delete button to save your changes.
Note: It is recommended that you change the password immediately to prevent security
breach to your GUI.

no delete radio button available for this account.
83
Mail Alert
Mail alert is designed to keep system administrator or other relevant personnel alerted of any
unexpected events that might have occured to the network computers or server for monitoring
efficiency. With this alert system, appropriate solutions may be tackled to fix problems that may
have arisen so that the server can be properly maintained.
SMTP Server: Enter the SMTP server that you would like to use for sending emails.
Username: Enter the username of your email account to be used by the SMTP server.
Password: Enter the password of your email account.
Sender’s Email: Enter your email address.

message once a computer / network server failover occurs.
Recipient’s Email (WAN IP Change Alert): Enter the email address that will receive the
alert message once a WAN IP change has been detected.
84
Firewall and Access Control
Your router includes a full SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall for Internet access controlling
from your LAN. This feature also protects your system from being attacked by hackers. When using
NAT, the router acts as a “natural” Internet firewall, as all PCs on your LAN will have their own
private IP addresses which are not directly accessible from the Internet. The router provides three
levels of security support.
NAT natural firewall: This masks LAN users’ IP addresses which are invisible to users on the
Internet, thus making it more difficult for a hacker to target a machine on your network. This natural
firewall is turned on when NAT function is enabled.
Firewall Security and Policy (General Settings): Inbound direction of Packet Filter rules to prevent
unauthorized computers or applications to access your local network from the Internet.
Intrusion Detection: Enable Intrusion Detection to detect, prevent and log malicious attacks.
Access Control: Prevent access from PCs on your local network:
Firewall Security and Policy (General Settings): Outbound direction of Packet Filter rules to
prevent unauthorized computers or applications from accessing the Internet.
URL Filter: To block PCs on your local network from unwanted websites.
Listed are the items under the Firewall section: General Settings, Packet Filter, Intrusion Detection,
URL Filter, IM/P2P Blocking and Firewall Log.
85
General Settings
You can choose to disable Firewall and still be able to access the URL Filter, Intrusion Detection
and IM/P2P Blocking or enable the Firewall using the preset filter rules and modify the port filter
rules as required. The Packet Filter is used to filter packets based on Applications (Port) or IP
addresses.
There are four policy options to choose from:
All blocked/User-defined: no predefined port or address filter rules by default, meaning that
all inbound (Internet to LAN) and outbound (LAN to Internet) packets will be blocked. Users
have to add their own filter rules to access the Internet.
High/Medium/Low security level: the predefined port filter rules for High, Medium and Low
security are displayed in the Port Filters of the Packet Filter.
Select either High, Medium or Low security level to enable Firewall protection. The only difference
between these three is the preset port filter rules in the Packet Filter. Firewall function is the same
for all levels; it is only the list of preset port filters that changes between each setting. For more detail
on level of preset port filter information, please refer to Table 1: Predefined Port Filter.
If you choose the preset security levels and add custom filters, the level of filter rules will be saved
and you do not need to re-configure the rules again if you disable or switch to the other security
level.
The “Block WAN Request” is a standalone function that is not affected by whether the security is
enabled or disabled. This is used to prevent any scan tools that might be from hackers.
86
87
Packet Filter
This function is only available when Firewall is enabled with one of the four security levels selected
(All blocked, High, Medium and Low). The preset port filter rules in the Packet Filter must be
modified accordingly to the level of security selected. See Table1: Predefined Port Filter for more
detail information.
88
Example: Predefined Port Filters Rules
The predefined port filter rules for High, Medium and Low security levels are listed. See Table 1.
Note: Firewall – All Blocked/User-defined, you must define and create the port filter rules
yourself. No predefined rule is being preconfigured.

Example: Configuring your firewall to allow a publicly accessible web server on your LAN
The predefined port filter rule for HTTP (TCP port 80) is the same whether the firewall is set to a
high, medium or low security level. To setup a web server located on the local network when the
firewall is enabled, you have to configure the Port Filters setting for HTTP.
As you can see from the diagram below, when the firewall is enabled with one of the three presets
(Low/Medium/High) security level selected, an inbound HTTP access is not allowed which means
remote access through HTTP to your router is not allowed.
Note: Inbound indicates accessing from the Internet to LAN and Outbound is from LAN to
the Internet.
Configuring Packet Filter:
1. Click Packet Filters. You will then be presented with the predefined port filter rules screen (in
this case for the low security level), shown below:
Note: You may click Edit the predefined rule instead of Delete it. This is an example to show
to how you add a filter on your own.
92
2. If you want to delete a filter rule, select the delete radio button of the HTTP rule you want to
delete. Then click the Edit/Delete button to delete the rule.
3. To add a new rule, Input the Rule Name, Time Schedule, Source/Destination IP, Type, Source/
Destination Port, Inbound and Outbound. Then click the Add button.
93
Intrusion Detection
The router Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is used to detect hacker’s attack and intrusion attempts
from the Internet. If the IDS function of the firewall is enabled, inbound packets are filtered and
blocked depending on whether they are detected as possible hacker attacks, intrusion attempts or
other connections that the router determines to be suspicious.
Blacklist: If the router detects a possible attack, the source IP or destination IP address will be
added to the Blacklist. Any further attempts using this IP address will be blocked for the time period
specified in the Block Duration. The default setting for this function is false (disabled). Some types of
attack are denied immediately without using the Blacklist function, such as Land attack
and Echo/CharGen scan.
Intrusion Detection: If enabled, IDS will block Smurf attack attempts. Default is false.
Block Duration:
Victim Protection Block Duration: This is the duration for blocking Smurf attacks. Default
value is 600 seconds.
Scan Attack Block Duration: This is the duration for blocking hosts that attempt a possible
Scan attack. Scan attack types include X’mas scan, IMAP SYN/FIN scan and similar
attempts. Default value is 86400 seconds.
DoS Attack Block Duration: This is the duration for blocking hosts that attempt a possible
Denial of Service (DoS) attack. Possible DoS attacks this attempts to block include Ascend
Kill and WinNuke. Default value is 1800 seconds.
Max TCP Open Handshaking Count: This is a threshold value to decide whether a SYN Flood
attempt is occurring or not. Default value is 100 TCP SYN per seconds.
Max PING Count: This is a threshold value to decide whether an ICMP Echo Storm is occurring or
not. Default value is 15 ICMP Echo Requests (PING) per second.
Max ICMP Count: This is a threshold to decide whether an ICMP flood is occurring or not. Default
value is 100 ICMP packets per seconds except ICMP Echo Requests (PING).
Clear Blacklist: Clear the current blacklist.
94
Blacklist: Show the blacklist information.
For SYN Flood, ICMP Echo Storm and ICMP flood, IDS will just warn the user in the Event Log. It
cannot protect against such attacks.

URL Filter
URL (Uniform Resource Locator) (e.g. an address in the form of http://www.abcde.com or http://
www.example.com) filter rule allows you to prevent users on your network from accessing specific
websites defined by their URL. There are no predefined URL filter rules, therefore you can add filter
rules to meet your requirements.
Enable/Disable: To enable or disable URL Filter feature.
Block Mode: It can support up to 4 timeslots.
Disabled: No action will be performed by the Block Mode.
Always On: Action is enabled. URL filter rules will be monitoring and checking all hours of
the day.
TimeSlot1 ~ TimeSlot16: It is self-defined time period. You may specify the time period
to check the URL filter rules, i.e. during working hours. For setup and detail, refer to Time
Schedule section.
Keywords Filtering: Allow blocking against specific keywords within a particular URL rather than
having to specify a complete URL (e.g. to block any image called “advertisement.gif”). When enabled,
your specified keywords list will be checked to see if any keywords are present in URLs accessed
to determine if the connection attempt should be blocked. Please note that the URL filter blocks web
browser (HTTP) connection attempts using port 80 only.
96
For example, if the URL is http://www.abc.com/abcde.html, the connection will be dropped if
the keyword “abcde” occurs in the URL.
Domains Filtering: This function checks the whole URL address but not the IP address against
your list of domains to block or allow. If it is matched, the URL request will either be sent (Trusted)
or dropped (Forbidden). For this function to be activated, both enable and disable checkboxes of
Domain Filtering must be checked. Here is the checking procedure:
1. Check the domain in the URL to determine if it is in the trusted list. If yes, the connection attempt
is sent to the remote web server.
2. If not, check if it is listed in the forbidden list. If yes, then the connection attempt will be
dropped.
3. If the packet does not match either of the above two conditions, it is sent to the remote web
server.
4. Please be noted that the completed URL, “www” + domain name should be specific. e.g.: In
order to block traffic to www.google.com.au, enter “www.google” or “www.google.com”
In the example below, the URL request for www.abc.com will be sent to the remote web server
because it is listed in the trusted list, whilst the URL request for www.google or www.google.com
will be dropped, because www.google is in the forbidden list.
97
Example:
Andy wishes to disable all WEB traffic except for the ones listed in the trusted domain, which would
prevent Bobby from accessing other websites. Andy selects both conditions in the Domain Filtering
thinking that this will stop Bobby. But Bobby knows this function, Domain Filtering, ONLY disables
all WEB traffic except for Trusted Domain, BUT not its IP address. If this is the situation, Block
surfing by IP address function can become helpful. Now, Andy can successfully prevent Bobby from
accessing other websites.
Restrict URL Features: This function enhances the restriction to your URL rules.
Block Java Applet: This function can block Web content that includes Java Applets. It is to
prevent someone who wants to damage your system via standard HTTP protocol.
Block surfing by IP address: A further restriction against someone who uses IP address
as URL to cheat around the Domains Filtering rule. Activates only if Domain Filtering is
enabled.
98
IM / P2P Blocking
IM, short for Instant Message, is a client software that allows users to communicate & exchange
text messages with other IM users in real time over the Internet. A P2P application, known as Peerto-peer, is group of users who share their files with each other within the network over the Internet
across the globe. Both Instant Message and Peer-to-peer applications make communication faster
and easier but your network can become increasingly insecure at the same time. Billion’s IM and
P2P blocking helps users to restrict LAN PCs to access the commonly used IM, Yahoo and MSN,
and P2P, BitTorrent and eDonkey, applications over the Internet.
Instant Message Blocking: The default is set to Disabled.
Disabled: Instant Message blocking is not triggered. No action will be performed.
Always On: Action is enabled.
TimeSlot1 ~ TimeSlot16: This is the self defined time period. You may specify the time
period to trigger the blocking, i.e. during working hours. For setup and detail, refer to Time
Schedule section.
Yahoo/MSN Messenger: Check the checkbox to block either or both Yahoo or/and MSN Messenger.
To be sure you enabled the Instant Message Blocking first.
Peer to Peer Blocking: The default is set to Disabled.
Disabled: Instant Message blocking is not triggered. No action will be performed.
Always On: Action is enabled.
TimeSlot1 ~ TimeSlot16: This is the self defined time period. You may specify the time period to
trigger the blocking, i.e. during working hours. For setup and detail, refer to Time Schedule section.
BitTorrent / eDonkey: Check the checkbox to block either or both Bit Torrent or/and eDonkey. To
be sure you enabled the Peer to Peer Blocking first.
99
Firewall Log
Firewall Log displays a log that contains information of any unexpected actions that occur to your
firewall settings.
Check the Enable checkbox to activate event logging.
Log information can be seen in the Status – Event Log after the feature is enabled

VoIP - Voice over Internet Protocol
VoIP enables telephone calls through existing Internet connection instead of going through the
PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network). It is not only cost-effective, especially for a long
distance telephone charges, but also toll-quality voice calls over the Internet.
Here are the items within the VoIP section: SIP Device Parameters, SIP Accounts, Phone Port,
PSTN Dial Plan, VoIP Dial Plan, Call Features, Speed Dial and Ring &Tone.
101
SIP Device Parameters
This section provides easy setup for your VoIP service. Phone port 1 can be registered to
different SIP Service Provider.
SIP Device Parameters
SIP: To use VoIP SIP as VoIP call signaling protocol. Default is set to Disable.
Silence Suppression (VAD): Voice Activation Detection (VAD) prevents transmitting the nature
silence to consume the bandwidth. It is also known as Silence Suppression which is a software
application that ensures the bandwidth is reserved only when voice activity is activated. Default is
set to Enable.
Echo Cancellation: G.168 echo canceller is an ITU-T standard. It is used for isolating the echo
while you are on the phone. This helps you not to hear much of your own voice reflecting on the
phone while you talk. Default is set to Enable.
RTP Port: Provide the based value from the media (RTP) ports that are assigned for various
endpoints and the different call sessions that may exist within an end-point. (Range from 5100 to
65535, default value is 5100)
Region: This selection is a drop-down box, which allows user to select the country for which the
VoIP device must work. When a country is selected, the country parameters are automatically
loaded.
102
Voice QoS, DSCP Marking: Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP), it is the first 6 bits in the
ToS byte. DSCP Marking allows users to assign specific application traffic to be executed in priority
by the next Router based on the DSCP value. See Table 4. The DSCP Mapping Table:
Note: To be sure the router(s) in the backbones network have the capability in executing and
checking the DSCP through-out the QoS network.
Advanced – Parameters
VoIP through IP Interface: IP Interface decides where to send/receive the voip traffic; it includes:
ipwan and iplan. Easy way to select the interface is to check the location of the SIP server. If it
locates some where in the Internet then select ipwan. If the VoIP SIP server is on the local Network
then select iplan.
Voice Frame Size: Frame size is available from 10ms to 60ms. Frame size meaning how many
milliseconds the Voice packets will be queued and sent out. It is ideal to have the same frame size in
both of Caller and Receiver.
Dial Plan Priority: Define the priority between VoIP and PSTN dial plan.
PSTN Auto-fallback: Whenever VoIP SIP responses error and error code matching with the codes
in the Edit section, the VoiP calls will automatically fallback to PSTN. In the other word, the call will
be called via the PSTN when VoIP SIP returns an error code.
Click the Edit to add or remove the responses code. To be sure the code is separated by a comma
(,).
For more information about SIP responses codes, please check
to link to http://voip-info.
org/wiki/view/sip+response+codes where you can get to know the meaning of each error code.
T.38 Fax Relay: It allows the transfer of facsimile documents in real-time between two standard
Group 3 facsimile terminals over the Internet or other networks using IP protocols. It will only
function when both sites are support this feature and enabled.
103
Advanced – PSTN Environment Adjustment
PSTN Environment Adjustment options will help you to adjust the onhook and offhook voltage
detection values for your environment. You should use these if the default values are incorrect and
result in PSTN calls not being detected properly, e.g. calls being terminated within 5 seconds of
being answered. The actual levels are determined by your environment including the number and
type of telephones used.
Note: ONHOOK means hung up.
To take your phone OFFHOOK, lift the receiver then press Hook/Flash until you hear your normal
PSTN dialtone, not your VoIP dialtone. Wait several seconds and then press Check Level.
You should check the OFFHOOK value for each telephone you have connected to this device. Set
the OFFHOOK voltage to the lowest setting registered for all your telephones, e.g. if your telephones
return values of 4, 5 and 7 then you should set your OFFHOOK voltage to 4.
Note: The detected values will not automatically be set by the Check Level function; you
must enter the lowest level detected after testing all your telephones.
104

Phone Number + #: This is the fast dial which you can dial out a phone number immediately
without waiting.
Note: Refer to the Special Dial Code section in this Manual for more details.
106
Codec Preference
Codec is known as Coder-Decoder, it is used for data signal conversion. Set the priority of voice
compression with Priority 1 represents the top priority.
G.729: It is used to encode and decode voice information into a single packet to reduce bandwidth
consumption.
G.711μ-LAW: It is a basic non-compressed encoder and decoder technique. μ-LAW uses pulse
code modulation (PCM) encoder and decoder to convert a 14-bit linear sample.
G.711A-LAW: It is a basic non-compressed encoder and decoder technique. A-LAW uses pulse
code modulation (PCM) encoder and decoder to convert a 13-bit linear sample.
G.726-32: It is used to encode and decode voice information into a single packet to reduce
bandwidth consumption. Currently only support bit rate with 32Kbps.

107
PSTN Dial Plan (Router with LINE port only)
This section enables you to configure the “VoIP with PSTN switching” on your system. You can
define a range of dial plans that will make regular call to switch from VoIP to PSTN line. Prefix
number is an essential key to make a difference between VoIP and Regular phone call. If the
actual numbers dialed match with the prefix number defined in this dial plan, the dialed number
will be rerouted to the PSTN to make a regular call. Otherwise, the number will be rerouted to the
VoIP networks.
Note: In order to utilize this feature, you must have registered and connected to your SIP
Server first.
Prefix: Specify the number(s) that will be used to switch from VoIP to PSTN when making a call.
Number of Digits: Specify the total number of digits you wish to dial out. The maximum number
of digit is 15.
Action: Specify a dialing method that you wish to use when making PSTN call(s).
Dial with Prefix: With this selected, the prefix which is dialed together with the phone number
will be dialed out as well via FXO when making a regular call.
Note: The prefix number dialed has to match the number of digit specified.
Dial without Prefix: With this selected, the prefix which is dialed together with the phone
number will not be dialed out with the phone number via FXO when making a regular call.
Note: The length of the number of digit dialed should match the number of digit specified.
Dial at Timeout: The number & the prefix entered will be dialed out via the FXO port after a
defined timeout interval although the number of digits of the phone number entered does not
match the number of digits specified.
Note: The length of the number of digit dialed must not exceed the number of digit defined
otherwise dialing will be invalid.
Dial at Timeout no Prefix: The phone number & the prefix entered will be dialed out via the
FXO port excluding the prefix after a defined timeout interval although the number of digit of
the phone number entered does not match the number of digit specified.
108
Note: The length of the number of digit dialed must not exceed the number of digit defined
otherwise dialing will be invalid.
PSTN Dial Plan Examples:
1. Dial with Prefix
If you dial 01223 707070, the number 01223707070 will be dialed out via FXO for making a regular
phone call.
109
2. Dial without Prefix
If you dial 9102, only 102 will be dialed out via FXO port for making a regular phone call.
3. Dial at Timeout
If you only dial 01223 7070, the number 012237070 will be dialed to make a regular call via FXO
port after a defined timeout interval even though the number of digit entered does not match the
number of digit defined. Number 7070 will still be a valid number for the device to complete the
dialing because it does not exceed the number of digit defined.
4. Dial at Timeout no Prefix
110
If you only dial 97070, the number that is dialed out via FXO port for making a regular call will not
have its prefix. Even though 7070 (only 4 digits) does not match the number of digit defined in the
field, 7070 is still a valid phone number since it has not exceeded the number of digit defined.
111
VoIP Dial Plan
This feature makes dialing phone number a lot more convenient and easy. Instead of having to
memorize long digits of every single contact, VoIP Dial Plan provides you the ease to create dial
plans that will enable you to make your phone calls without the need to memorize the phone
number. To access this feature, go to Configuration > VoIP > VoIP Dial Plan.
Dial Plan Rules
Click the Add button to create and define a VoIP dial plan rule.
Prefix Processing:
Prepend xxx unconditionally: xxx number is appended unconditionally to the front of the dialing
number when making a call. Prefix can also be included with any number and/or character such as
+, *, #.
Note: For special service with +, *, #, you may need to check with your VoIP or Local Telephone
Service Provider for information.
If Prefix is xxx, delete it: Prefix xxx is removed from the dialing numbers before making a call.
If Prefix is xxx, replace with: Prefix xxx is appended to the front of the dialing numbers when
making a call.
112
No prefix: No prefix is appended to the front of the numbers dialed. This is the default setting for
Prefix Processing section.
Main Digit Sequence: The call(s) can be called out via SIP, PSTN or ENUM. x: Any numeric
number between 0 and 9.
. ( period ): Repeat numeric number(s) between 0 and 9.
* (asterisk sign): It is a normal character ‘*’ on the phone key pad. Please check if any special
service is provided by your VoIP Service Provider or your Local Telephone Service Provider.
# (pound sign): It is a normal character ‘#’ on the phone key pad. Please check if any special
service is provided by your VoIP Service Provider or the Local Telephone Service Provider.
<@ Current Profile>: Refer to the VoIP account registered on the VoIP Wizard for Port 1.
<@ PSTN>: Making a telephone call via the PSTN line.
<@ENUM>: Making a VoIP SIP direct call via an Electronic number (ENUM) 164 to an ENUM

QoS - Quality of Service
QoS function helps you to control the network traffic of each application from LAN (Ethernet and/
or Wireless) to WAN (Internet). It facilitates you the features to control the quality and speed of
throughput for each application when the system is running with full upstream load.
These are the items within the QoS section: Prioritization, Outbound IP Throttling & Inbound
IP Throttling (bandwidth management).
Prioritization
There are three priority settings to be provided in the Router:
High
Normal (The default is normal priority for all of traffic without setting)
Low
The utilization percentage of each priority settings are High (60%), Normal (30%) and Low (10%).
To delete an application, you can click on the Delete radio button of the application and then click
the Edit/Delete button.
Name: User defined description to identify the new policy/application created.
Time Schedule: Schedule your prioritization policy.

Mission-critical application
Mostly the VPN connection is mission-critical application for doing data exchange between head
and branch office.
The mission-critical application must be sent out smoothly without any drop out. Set the level of
priority as high to prevent other applications from saturating the bandwidth.
Voice application
Voice is latency-sensitive application. Most VoIP devices are use SIP protocol and the port
number will be assigned by SIP module automatically. Better to use fixed IP address for catching
VoIP packets as high priority.
The setting above will help to improve the quality of your VoIP service when the traffic is fully
loaded.
125
Restricted Application
Some companies will setup their FTP servers for data download while others may use FTP for file
sharing.
The setting above helps to limit the utilization of the FTP upstream rate. Time schedule also helps
to limit its utilization only during daytime.
126
Advanced setting by using IP throttling
IP throttling enables you to set parameters for bandwidth allocation, although the applications
maybe located on the same level.
Upstream: 928kbps (29*32kbps)
Mission-critical Application: 192kbps (6*32kbps)
Voice Application: 128kbps (4*32kbps)
Restricted Application: 160kbps (5*32kbps)
Other Applications: 448kbps (14*32kbps)
6+4+14+5=29, 29*32kbps=928kbps
Sometime your customers or friends may upload their files to your FTP server and that will
saturate your downstream bandwidth. The settings below help you to limit bandwidth for the
restricted application.
127
Virtual Server (known as Port Forwarding)
In TCP/IP and UDP networks, a port is a 16-bit number used to identify which application program
(usually a server) incoming connections should be delivered to. Some ports have numbers that are
pre-assigned to them by the IANA (the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority), and these are
referred to as “well-known ports”. Servers follow the well-known port assignments so clients can
locate them.
If you wish to run a server on your network that can be accessed from the WAN (i.e. from other
machines on the Internet that are outside your local network), or any application that can accept
incoming connections (e.g. Peer-to-peer/P2P software such as instant messaging applications
and P2P file-sharing applications) and are using NAT (Network Address Translation), then you will
usually need to configure your router to forward these incoming connection attempts using specific
ports to the PC on your network running the application. You will also need to use port forwarding
if you want to host an online game server.
The reason for this is that when using NAT, your publicly accessible IP address will be used by and
point to your router, which then needs to deliver all traffic to the private IP addresses used by your
PCs. Please see the WAN configuration section of this manual for more information on NAT.
The device can be configured as a virtual server so that remote users accessing services such
as Web or FTP services via the public (WAN) IP address can be automatically redirected to local
servers in the LAN network. Depending on the requested service (TCP/UDP port number), the
device redirects the external service request to the appropriate server within the LAN network.
128
Add Virtual Server
Because NAT can act as a “natural” Internet firewall, your router protects your network from being
accessed by outside users when using NAT, as all incoming connection attempts will point to your
router unless you specifically create Virtual Server entries to forward those ports to a PC on your
network.
When your router needs to allow an outside user to access the internal server, e.g. a web server,
FTP server, Email server or game server, the router can act as a virtual server. You can set up a
local server with a specific port number for this service, e.g. web/HTTP (port 80), FTP (port 21),
Telnet (port 23), SMTP (port 25), or POP3 (port 110). When an incoming access request to the
router for a specified port is received, it will be forwarded to the corresponding internal server.

Example:
If you like to remotely access your Router through the Web/HTTP all the time, you will need to
enable port number 80 (Web/HTTP) and map to the Router’s IP Address. Then all incoming HTTP
requests from you (Remote side) will be forwarded to the Router with an IP address of
192.168.1.254. Since port number 80 has already been predefined, next to the Application click
Helper. A window with a list of predefined rules will pop, you can then select HTTP_Sever.
Application: HTTP_Sever Time Schedule: Always On Protocol: tcp
External Port: 80-80

Edit DMZ Host
DMZ Host is a local computer that is exposed to the Internet. When setting a particular internal IP
address as the DMZ Host, all incoming packets especially those that do not use the port number
that is being used by any other Virtual Server entries will be checked by the Firewall and NAT
algorithms before being passed to the DMZ host.
Cautious: The local computer that is exposed to the Internet may face various security
risks.
Go to Configuration > Virtual Server > Edit DMZ Host
Enabled: It activates your DMZ function.
Disabled: As set in default setting, it disables the DMZ function.
Internal IP Address: Give a static IP address to the DMZ Host when Enabled radio button is

Example: List of some well-known and registered port numbers.
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) is the central coordinator for the assignment
of unique parameter values for Internet protocols. Port numbers range from 0 to 65535, but only
ports numbers 0 to 1023 are reserved for privileged services and are designated as “well-known
ports” (Please refer to Table 5). The registered ports are numbered from 1024 through 49151. The
remaining ports, referred to as dynamic or private ports, are numbered from 49152 through 65535.
For further information, please see IANA’s website at http://www.iana.org/assignments/portnumbers

Time Schedule
The Time Schedule supports up to 16 time slots which helps you to manage your Internet
connection. In each time profile, you may schedule specific day(s) i.e. Monday through Sunday to
restrict or allow the use of the Internet by users or applications.
Time Schedule correlates closely with router time. Since router does not have a real time clock
on board, it uses the Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) to get the current time from an SNTP
server. Refer to Time Zone for details. Your router time should correspond with your local time. If
the time is not set correctly, your Time Schedule will not function properly.
136
Configuration of Time Schedule
Edit a Time Slot
1. Choose any Time Slot (ID 1 to ID 16) to edit, click Edit radio button.
Note: Watch it carefully, the days you have selected will present in capital letter. Lower case
letter shows the day(s) is not selected, and no rule will apply on this day(s).
2. A detailed setting of this Time Slot will be shown.
ID: This is the index of the time slot.
Name: A user defined description to identify this time portfolio.
Day in a week: The default is set from Monday through Friday. You may also specify the days for
the schedule to be applied to.
Start Time: The default is set at 8:00 AM. You may specify the start time of the schedule.
End Time: The default is set at 18:00 (6:00PM). You may specify the end time of the schedule.
Choose Edit radio button and click Edit/Delete button to apply your changes.
137
Delete a Time Slot
Click on the Delete radio button of the Time Slot you wish to delete under the Time Slot section, and
then click the Edit/Delete button to confirm the deletion of the selected Time profile, i.e. erase the
Day and back to default setting of Start Time / End Time.
138
Advanced
Configuration options within the Advanced section are for users who wish to take advantage of
the more advanced features of the router. Users who do not understand the features should not
attempt to reconfigure their router, unless advised to do so by support staff.
These are the items within the Advanced section: Static Route, Static ARP, Dynamic DNS,
Device Management, IGMP and VLAN Bridge.
Static Route
Go to Configuration > Advanced > Static Route.
Destination: This is the destination subnet IP address.
Netmask: Subnet mask of the destination IP addresses based on the above destination subnet IP.
Gateway: This is the gateway IP address to which packets are to be forwarded.
Interface: Select the interface through which packets are to be forwarded.
Cost: This is the same meaning as Hop. This should usually be left at 1.
Static ARP
IP Address: Fill in the IP address of the host computer that is sending the data packet.
MAC Address: Fill in the MAC address of the computer that the incoming data packets are to be
forwarded.
139
Dynamic DNS
The Dynamic DNS function allows you to alias a dynamic IP address to a static hostname,
allowing users whose ISP does not assign them a static IP address to use a domain name. This is
especially useful for hosting servers via your connection, so that anyone wishing to connect to you
may use your domain name, rather than having to use your dynamic IP address, which changes
from time to time. This dynamic IP address is the WAN IP address of the router, which is assigned
to you by your ISP.
You will first need to register and establish an account with the Dynamic DNS provider using their
website, for example http://www.dyndns.org/
There are more than 5 DDNS services supported.
Dynamic DNS:
Disable: Check to disable the Dynamic DNS function.
Enable: Check to enable the Dynamic DNS function. The following fields will be activated and
required.
Dynamic DNS Server: Select the DDNS service you have established an account with.
Domain Name, Username and Password: Enter your registered domain name and your username
and password for this service.
Period: Set the time period between updates, for the Router to exchange information with the DDNS
server. In addition to updating periodically as per your settings, the router will perform an update
when your dynamic IP address changes.
140
Device Management
The Device Management advanced configuration setting allows you to control your router security
option and device monitoring features.
Device Host Name
Host Name: Assign it a name.
Note: The Host Name must have more than a word. These two words should be connected
with a ‘.’ period inbetween.
Example:
Host Name: homegateway ==> Incorrect
Host Name: home.gateway or my.home.gateway ==> Correct)
141
Embedded Web Server ( 2 Management IP Accounts)
HTTP Port: This is the port number that the router embedded web server (for web-based
configuration) will use. The default value is the standard HTTP port 80. Users may specify an
alternative if, for example, they are running a web server on a PC within their LAN.
Management IP Address: You may specify an IP address for logon and access the router web
server. Setting the IP address to 0.0.0.0 will disable IP address restrictions, allowing users to login
from any IP address.
Expire to auto-logout: Specify a duration for the system to log the user out of the configuration
session automatically.
For Example:
User A changes the HTTP port number to 100, specifies their own IP address as 192.168.1.55 and
sets the logout time as 100 seconds. The router will only allow User A to access the Web GUI from
the IP address 192.168.1.55 by typing http://192.168.1.254:100 in their web browser.
Nevertheless, after 100 seconds the device will automatically log User A out of the system.
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)
UPnP offers peer-to-peer network connectivity for PCs and other network devices, along with
control and data transfer featuers between devices. UPnP offers many advantages for users that
run NAT routers through UPnP NAT Traversal and on supported systems. This makes tasks such
as port forwarding become easier by letting the application control the required settings & remove
the need for the user to control the advanced configuration of their device.
Both operating system and the relevant application must support UPnP in addition to the router.
Windows XP and Windows ME natively support UPnP (when the component is installed) while
Windows 98 users may install the Internet Connection Sharing client from Windows XP in order to
gain support for UPnP. Nevertheless Windows 2000 does not support UPnP.
Disable: Check to disable the router’s UPnP functionality.
Enable: Check to enable the router’s UPnP functionality.
UPnP Port: Its default setting is 2800. It is highly recommended for users to use this port value. If
this value conflicts with other ports already being used, you may wish to change the port.
SNMP Access Control (Software on a PC within the LAN is required in order to utilize this
function) – Simple Network Management Protocol.
 Disable: Check to disable the router’s SNMP functionality.
 Enable: Check to enable the router’s SNMP functionality.
SNMP Access Control (Software on a PC within the LAN is required in order to utilize this
function) – Simple Network Management Protocol.
SNMP V1 and V2:
Read Community: Specify a name to be identified as the Read Community and an IP address.
This community string will be checked against the string entered in the configuration file. Once the
string name is matched, user with this IP address will be able to view the data.
Write Community: Specify a name to be identified as the Write Community and an IP address.
This community string will be checked against the string entered in the configuration file. Once the
string name is matched, users with this IP address will be able to view and modify the data.
Trap Community: Specify a name to be identified as the Trap Community and an IP address.
This community string will be checked against the string entered in the configuration file. Once the
142
string name is matched, users with this IP address will be sent SNMP Traps.
SNMP V3:
Specify a name and password for authentication and define the access right from an identified IP
address. Once the authentication has succeeded, users with this IP address will be able to view
and modify the data.
143
SNMP Version: SNMPv2c and SNMPv3
SNMPv2c is the combination of the enhanced protocol features of SNMPv2 without the SNMPv2
security. The “c” comes from the fact that SNMPv2c uses the SNMPv1 community string paradigm
for “security”, but is widely accepted as the SNMPv2 standard.
SNMPv3 is a strong authentication mechanism, authorization with fine granularity for remote
monitoring.
Traps supported: Cold Start, Authentication Failure.

IGMP
IGMP, known as Internet Group Management Protocol, is used to manage hosts from multicast
group.
IGMP Proxy: Enables or disables the router’s IGMP Proxy.
Upstream Interface: When IGMP Proxy enabled, sets one of the router’s existing IP interfaces as
the upstream interface; all other router interfaces are designated downstream interfaces.
IGMP Forward All: Enables/Disables your router’s ability to forward multicast traffic to ALL
interfaces.
IGMP Snooping: Enables/Disables the IGMP Snoop functionality in the bridge. When the IGMP
snoop functionality is enabled, all the attached bridge interfaces are designated as downstream
interfaces.
MLD
MLD, short for Multicast Listener Discovery protocol, is a component if the Internet Protocol
version 6(IPv6) suite. MLD is used by IPv6 to discover multicast listeners on a directly attached link,
much as IGMP used in IPv4. The protocol is embedded in ICMPv6 instead of using a separate
protocol. MLDv1 is similar to IGMPv2 and MLDv2 is similar to IGMPv3.
MLD Proxy: check whether to enable this function. MLD (Multicast Listener Discovery Protocol)
Proxy intercepts the MLD request from Clients and forwards it to the router after some dealings.
Support MLDv1 and MLDv2.
Upstream Interface: When MLD Proxy enabled, sets one of the router’s existing IP interfaces as the
upstream interface; all other router interfaces are designated downstream interfaces.
145
MLD Forward All: select enable to forward the multicast packets to all ports. If select disable, the
multicast packets will be forwarded to ports set according to the MLD Snooping below.
MLD Snooping: similar to IGMP snooping, listens in on the MLD conversation between hosts and
routers by processing MLD packets sent in a multicast network, and it analyzes all MLD packets
between hosts and the connected multicast routers in the network. Without MLD snooping, multicast
traffic is treated in the same manner as broadcast traffic - that is, it is forwarded to all ports. With
MLD snooping, multicast traffic of a group is only forwarded to ports that have members of that
group.
VLAN Bridge
VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) is a group of devices on different physical LAN segments that
can communicate with each other as if they were all on the same physical LAN segment.
Edit: Edit your member ports in selected VLAN group.
Create VLAN: To create another VLAN group.
146
Logout
To exit the router web interface, choose Logout. Please save your configuration setting before
logging out of the system.
Be aware that the router configuration interface can only be accessed by one PC at a time.
Therefore when a PC has logged into the system interface, the other users cannot access the
system interface until the current user has logged out of the system. If the previous user forgets to
logout, the second PC can only access the router web interface after a user-defined auto logout
period which is by default 3 minutes. You can however modify the value of the auto logout period
using the Advanced > Device Management section of the router web interface. Please see the
Advanced section of this manual for more information.

Chapter 5: Troubleshooting
If your router is not functioning properly, please refer to the suggested solutions provided in this
chapter. If your problems persist or the suggested solutions do not meet your needs, please kindly
contact your service provider or Billion for support.
Problems with the router
Problem
Suggested Action
Check the connection between the router and the
adapter. If the problem persists, most likely it is due
to the malfunction of your hardware. Please contact
your service provider or Billion for technical support.
Try the default username "admin" and password
You have forgotten your login username "admin". If this fails, you can restore your router to its
factory settings by holding the Reset button on the
or password
back of your router more than 6 seconds.
None of the LEDs lit when the router is
turned on.
Problems with WAN interface
Problem
Initialization of ADSL connection
(line- sync) fail
Frequent loss of ADSL linesync
(disconnection)
Suggested Action
Make sure that the telephone cable is properly
connected between the ADSL port and the wall jack.
The ADSL LED on the front panel should lit. Check
that your VPI, VCI, encapsulation type and type of
multiplexing settings are the same as those provided
by your ISP. Reboot the router GE. If you still have
problem, you may need to verify these settings with
your ISP.
Make sure that all devices (e.g telephone, fax machine,
analogue modems) that are connected to the telephone
line as your router have a line filter connected between
them and the wall outlet (unless your are using a
Central Splitter or Central Filter installed by a qualified
and licensed electrician). Make sure that all line filters
are correctly installed as missing line filters or incorrect
installation of line filters can cause ADSL connection
problem, including frequent disconnections.
148
Problem with LAN interface
Problem
Cannot PING any PC on LAN
Suggested Action
Check the Ethernet LEDs on the front panel. The LED
should be on for the port that has a PC connected. If it does
not lit, and check to see if the cable between your router and
the PC is properly connected. Make sure you have first
uninstalled your firewall program before troubleshooting.
Verify that the IP address and the subnet mask are
consistent for both the router and the workstations.
