INTRODUCTION
With the explosive growth of the Internet, accessing information and
services at any time, day or night, has become standard fare for most
people. The era of the standalone PC is waning. Networking technology is
moving out of the exclusive domain of corporations and into homes with
at least two computers.
Broadband network access is also gaining ground. Allowing more than
two computers to access the Internet at the same time, however, has
typically entailed significantly higher costs. Thus, there is a great demand
for technology that enables users to share a single Internet connection.
Employing a router to share an Internet connection solves the problem of
high network access costs. Using such a device, each networked computer
is able to make full use of broadband capabilities.
This device not only comes equipped with a wide range of features but
also can be installed and configured right out of the box. This device
supports a simple local area network and Internet access sharing.

2-3-2 DHCP Client List
The DHCP client list allows you to see which clients are connected to the
router via IP address, host name, and MAC address.
27
2-4 NAT
Network Address Translation (NAT) allows multiple users at the local site
to access the Internet through a single public IP address. NAT can also
prevent hacker attacks by mapping local addresses to public addresses for
key services such as the Web or FTP.
2-4-1 Special Application
Some applications require multiple connections, such as Internet gaming,
video conferencing, and Internet telephony. These applications cannot
work when Network Address Translation (NAT) is enabled. When users
send this type of request to your network via the Internet, the Router will
forward those requests to the appropriate PC. If you need to run
applications that require multiple connections, specify the port normally
associated with an application in the "Trigger Port" field, select the
protocol type as TCP or UDP, then enter the public ports associated with
the
trigger
port
to
open
them
for
inbound
traffic.
•
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) - A method (protocol) used
along with the Internet Protocol (Internet Protocol) to send data in the
form of message units between computers over the Internet. While IP
takes care of handling the actual delivery of the data, TCP takes care
of keeping track of the individual units of data (called packets) that a
message is divided into for efficient routing through the Internet.
•
UDP (User Datagram Protocol) - A communications method
(protocol) that offers a limited amount of service when messages are
exchanged between computers in a network that use the Internet
Protocol (IP). UDP is an alternative to the TCP and, together with IP,
is sometimes referred to as UDP/IP. Like the Transmission Control
Protocol, UDP uses the Internet Protocol to actually get a data unit
(called a datagram) from one computer to another. Unlike TCP,
however, UDP does not provide the service of dividing a message
into packets (datagrams) and reassembling it at the other end.
28
Specifically, UDP doesn't provide sequencing of the packets that the
data arrives in. This means that the application program that uses
UDP must be able to make sure that the entire message has arrived
and is in the right order. Network applications that want to save
processing time because they have very small data units to exchange
(and therefore very little message reassembling to do) may prefer
UDP to TCP.

2-4-2 Virtual Server
The virtual server option allows you to define port number on your router
for redirection to an internal LAN IP address. This feature is useful for
hosting online services such as FTP or Web servers.

2-5-2 Client Filtering
To block certain client PCs from accessing the Internet:
You can filter Internet access for local clients based on IP addresses,
application types, (i.e., HTTP port), and time of day.
For example, this screen shows that clients in the address range
192.168.0.50-99 are permanently restricted from using FTP (Port 21),
while clients in the address range 192.168.0.110-119 are blocked from
browsing the Internet (port 80) from Monday to Friday and from 0:00AM
to 11:00 PM.
Example:
2-5 Firewall
The Broadband Router provides extensive firewall protection by
restricting connection parameters to limit the risk of hacker attacks and by
defending against a wide array of common hacker attacks.
The Broadband Router provides packet filtering rules by restricting
service ports, IP address or MAC address. However, for applications that
require unrestricted access to the Internet, you may configure a specific
client/server as a demilitarized zone (DMZ).
2-5-3 MAC Address Control
MAC Address Control allows you to block certain client PCs from
accessing the Internet based on MAC addresses.
2-5-1 Discard PING from WAN side
When "Discard Ping from WAN side" is checked, it is causes the public
WAN IP address on the Broadband Router to ignore ping commands.
Pinging public WAN IP addresses is a common method used by hackers
to test whether the WAN IP address is valid.
31
32
2-5-4 DMZ (Demilitarized Zone)
If a local client PC cannot run an Internet application properly from
behind the NAT firewall, open the client up to unrestricted two-way
Internet access by defining a PC as a virtual DMZ Host.
