Installation and configuration of the NF18ACV
Placement of your NF18ACV
The wireless connection between your NF18ACV and your WiFi devices will be strong when they are in close proximity and
have direct line of sight. As your client device moves further away from the NF18ACV or solid objects block direct line of sight
to the router, your wireless connection and performance may degrade. This may or may not be directly noticeable, and is
greatly affected by the individual installation environment.
If you have concerns about your network’s performance that might be related to range or obstruction factors, try moving the
computer to a position between three to five meters from the NF18ACV in order to see if distance is the problem.
Note – While some of the items listed below can affect network performance, they will not prohibit your wireless network from
functioning; if you are concerned that your network is not operating at its maximum effectiveness, this check list may help
If you experience difficulties connecting wirelessly between your WiFi Devices and your NF18ACV, please try the following
steps:
In multi-storey homes, place the NF18ACV on a floor that is as close to the centre of the home as possible. This may
mean placing the NF18ACV on an upper floor.
Try not to place the NF18ACV near a cordless telephone that operates at the same radio frequency as the NF18ACV
(2.4GHz/5GHz).
Avoiding obstacles and interference
Avoid placing your NF18ACV near devices that may emit radio “noise,” such as microwave ovens. Dense objects that can
inhibit wireless communication include:
Refrigerators
Washers and/or dryers
Metal cabinets
Large aquariums
Metallic-based, UV-tinted windows
If your wireless signal seems weak in some spots, make sure that objects such as those listed above are not blocking
the signal’s path (between your devices and the NF18ACV).
Cordless phones
If the performance of your wireless network is impaired after considering the above issues, and you have a cordless phone:
Try moving cordless phones away from your NF18ACV and your wireless-enabled computers.
Unplug and remove the battery from any cordless phone that operates on the 2.4GHz or 5GHz band (check
manufacturer’s information). If this fixes the problem, your phone may be interfering with the NF18ACV.

User Guide
If your phone supports channel selection, change the channel on the phone to the farthest channel from your wireless
network. For example, change the phone to channel 1 and move your NF18ACV to channel 11. See your phone’s user
manual for detailed instructions.
If necessary, consider switching to a 900MHz or 1800MHz cordless phone.
Choosing the “quietest” channel for your wireless network
In locations where homes or offices are close together, such as apartment buildings or office complexes, there may be
wireless networks nearby that can conflict with your wireless network. Your wireless adapter may include a utility to assist in
scanning for the least congested network, otherwise you may be able to find another piece of software that can be used.
These tools display a graphical representation of the wireless networks in range and the channels on which they are
operating. Try to find a channel which is not as busy and does not overlap with another one. Channels 1, 6 and 11 are the
only channels on 2.4GHz which do not overlap with one another and you should ideally choose one of these channels.
Experiment with more than one of the available channels, in order to find the clearest connection and avoid interference
from neighbouring cordless phones or other wireless devices.

Enable DHCPv6
The Router Advertisement Daemon (radvd) is an open-source software product
Server or RADVD
that implements link-local advertisements of IPv6 router addresses and IPv6
routing prefixes using the Neighbour Discovery Protocol (NDP) as specified in
RFC 2461. The Router Advertisement Daemon is used by system administrators
in stateless auto-configuration methods of network hosts on Internet Protocol
version 6 networks.
When IPv6 hosts configure their network interfaces, they broadcast router
solicitation (RS) requests onto the network to discover available routers. The
radvd software answers requests with router advertisement (RA) messages. In
addition, radvd periodically broadcasts RA packets to the attached link to
update network hosts. The router advertisement messages contain the routing
prefix used on the link, the link maximum transmission unit (MTU), and the
address of the responsible default router.
Stateless
IPv6 hosts can configure themselves automatically when connected to a routed
(for DHCPv6 Server)
IPv6 network using Internet Control Message Protocol version 6 (ICMPv6)
router discovery messages.
This type of configuration is suitable for small organizations and individuals. It
allows each host to determine its address from the contents of received user
advertisements. It makes use of the IEEE EUI-64 standard to define the network
ID portion of the address.
Stateful
This configuration requires some human intervention as it makes use of the
(for DHCPv6 Server)
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6) for installation and
administration of nodes over a network.
The DHCPv6 server maintains a list of nodes and the information about their
state to know the availability of each IP address from the range specified by the
network administrator.
Enable MLD Snooping Select whether to enable or disable MLD Snooping on the router. The Multicast
Listener Discovery (MLD) snooping function constrains the flooding of IPv6
multicast traffic on LANs on the router.
Enable Relay
When enabled, relays DHCP messages between DHCPv6 clients and DHCPv6
servers on different IPv6 networks.

Port Triggering
Some applications require specific ports in the Router’s firewall to be open for access by remote parties. Port Triggering
opens up the ‘Open Ports’ in the firewall when an application on the LAN initiates a TCP/UDP connection to a remote party
using the ‘Triggering Ports’.
The Router allows the remote party from the WAN side to establish new connections back to the application on the LAN side
using the ‘Open Ports’. A maximum 32 entries can be configured.
This is a list of specific ports in the router’s firewall that are open for access by remote parties.

Quality of Service
Quality of Service offers a defined level of performance in a data communications system - for example the ability to
guarantee that video traffic is given priority over other network traffic to ensure that video streaming is not disrupted by
other network traffic. This means that if you are streaming video and someone else in the house starts downloading a large
file, the download won’t disrupt the flow of video traffic.

Click the Apply/Save button to save and activate the rule.
QoS Port Shaping
Port Shaping allows the limiting of continuous network speed without affecting burst traffic. For example, when your
browser loads a web page, this is a type burst traffic as the browser aims to fetch small amounts of data quickly and then
leaves the connection idle. Limiting port speed alone will affect the speed at which web pages are loaded, causing users to
feel that their overall internet connection speed is slow.
By configuring QoS Port Shaping with a Burst size, web pages are allowed to load using the burst speed, while continuous
traffic such as file downloads will be shaped at a lower rate.
To identify the best way to configure shaping rate and burst size, consider the equation below:
Time window = Burst size / rate
For example. if a 200 Mbps bandwidth limit is configured with a 5 ms burst window, the calculation becomes 200 Mbps x 5
ms = 125 Kbytes, which is approximately eighty-three (83) 1500-byte packets. If the 200 Mbps bandwidth limit is configured
on a Gigabit Ethernet interface, the burst duration is 125000 bytes / 1 Gbps = 1 ms at the Gigabit Ethernet line rate.
After 1ms of burst data at full gigabit speed, the speed is shaped to 200Mbps.

DNS
DNS Server Configuration
A DNS server is a server that contains a database of hostnames and their associated public IP addresses.
This server is used to resolve hostnames to a unique public IP address when requested.
When a user enters a URL e.g. www.netcommwireless.com into their browser, your router is contacting the DNS server and
requesting the webserver IP address.
Hostname URLs are easier for humans to understand and remember than IP address numbers. A host’s IP addresses can
change from time to time hence a DNS server is required to locate and translate a hostname.
DNS Servers can be used to block unwanted content, such as explicit material. By using a filtered DNS server, the hostname
of these materials will not be resolved, allowing parental control to accessible content.
Parental Control DNS are available as a free service or customizable paid service. For example: OpenDNS FamilyShield,
Norton ConnectSafe, Yandex.DNS, Comodo Secured, etc.

Multicast (IGMP Configuration)
The Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) is a communications protocol used by hosts and adjacent routers on IP
networks to establish multicast group memberships. IGMP is a protocol only used on the network between a host and the
router. It allows a host to inform the router whenever that host needs to join or leave a particular multicast group. IGMP
provides for more efficient allocation of resources when used with online gaming and video streaming.

Field
Definition
Default Version

Query Interval
The hosts on the segment report their group membership in response to the
router’s queries. The query interval timer is also used to define the amount of time
a router will store particular IGMP state if it does not hear any reports on the
group. The query interval is the time in seconds between queries sent from the
router to IGMP hosts.
Query Response
When a host receives the query packet, it starts counting to a random value, less
Interval
the maximum response time. When this time expires, the host replies with a report,
provided that no other host has responded yet. This accomplishes two purposes:

a) Allows controlling the amount of IGMP reports sent during a time window.
b) Engages the report suppression feature, which permits a host to suppress its own
report and conserve bandwidth.
Last Member
IGMP uses this value when router hears IGMP Leave report. This means that at
Query Interval
least one host wants to leave the group. After router receives the Leave report, it
checks that the interface is not configured for IGMP Immediate Leave (single-host
on the segment) and if not, it sends out an out-of-sequence query.
Robustness Value The robustness variable is a way of indicating how susceptible the subnet is to lost
packets. IGMP can recover from robustness variable minus 1 lost IGMP packets.

Table 33: VoIP – Advanced – Service Provider settings
Configuring a VoIP dial plan
The router comes with a default dial plan suitable for use in Australia. The dial plan tells the router to dial a number
immediately when a string of numbers entered on a connected handset matches a string in the dial plan. For example, the
string 13[1-9]XXX allows the router to recognize six digit “13 numbers” allowing customers to call a business for the price
of a local call anywhere in Australia. The reason it is configured as 13[1-9]XXX is because 13 numbers cannot begin with a 0
after the 13 while the last 3 digits may be any numeric digit.
You can configure the dial plan to match any string you like. Below are some rules for configuring a dial plan:
Separate strings with a | (pipe) character.
Use the letter X to define any single numeric digit.
Use square brackets to specify ranges or subsets, for example:
[1-9] allows any digit from 1 to 9.
[247] allows either 2 or 4 or 7.
Combine ranges with other keys, for example, [247-9*#] means 2 or 4 or 7 or 8 or 9 or * or #.

VoIP Functionality
This section describes how to use the VoIP function of the DSL router in more detail. Some features involve 2 or 3 parties. In
that case, note that all 3 parties have to be successfully registered.
Registering
Before using any VoIP functions, the DSL router has to register itself to a registrar. The DSL router also has to be configured
with a proxy, which relays VoIP signalling to the next hop. In fact, many implementations integrate these two into one server,
so in many case registrar and proxy refer to the same IP.
1
Select the right interface to use for registering, depending on where proxy/registrar resides. If use WAN link, ensure
that it is already up.
2
Select the checkbox of Use SIP Registrar, and fill in the IP address and port with the right value.

Management – SNMP Agent
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) allows a network administrator to monitor a network by retrieving
settings on remote network devices. To do this, the administrator typically runs an SNMP management station program such
as MIB browser on a local host to obtain information from the SNMP agent, in this case the NF18ACV (if SNMP is enabled). An
SNMP ‘community’ performs the function of authenticating SNMP traffic. A ‘community name’ acts as a password that is
typically shared among SNMP agents and managers.

Appendix: Quality of Service setup example
The following Quality of Service (QoS) settings offer a basic setup example, setting up 2 devices connecting to an NF18ACV
router, one with the highest priority for data and the other with the lowest priority for data. All other data packet traffic
through the router assumes a default best effort setting.
Quality of Service refers to the reservation of bandwidth resources on the NF18ACV router to provide different priorities to
different applications, users or data flows or to guarantee a certain level of performance to a data flow.
In this implementation, QoS employs DSCP (Differentiated Services Code Point), a computer networking architecture that
specifies a simple, scalable and course-grained mechanism for classifying and managing network traffic.
This example guide sets up QoS with two devices (PC and laptop) connecting via Ethernet cable to an NF18ACV router. One
device (PC) is assigned high priority traffic while the other device (laptop) is assigned a low priority. Before Quality of Service
can be implemented, the first step involves reserving an IP address for each device, identified by their unique MAC
addresses.
Reserving IP addresses
So that QoS settings, custom NAT settings, and parental control settings can be managed for each device, it is necessary to
reserve an IP address for each of the devices connecting to the NF18ACV.
Reserved IP addresses are not required to be within the DHCP server range, however they are required to be with-in the LAN
subnet range:
1
Navigate to http://192.168.20.1 in a web browser.
2
When prompted, enter admin as both the username and password.
