The Gigaset Router
Features and Application
The Gigaset Router's wide range of features makes it ideal for a large number of
applications, such as:
◆ setting up a local network
The Gigaset Router can accommodate
– four devices via Ethernet ports with a transmission speed of 10 or 100 Mbps.
– for up to 253 mobile end devices via a wireless interface with a transmission
speed of 11 Mbps. Here it complies with Standard IEEE 802.11b– i.e. the router
can be used together with products of several other manufacturers.
Using a Gigaset Router makes it easy to set up a network at home or small offices.
For example, users can exchange data or share resources on the network, such as a
file server or printer.
With the Gigaset devices for wireless networks you can operate a local network–as
envisaged in Standard IEEE 802.11 –in Ad-hoc mode and in Infrastructure mode.
The Gigaset Router supports DHCP for dynamic IP configuration of the local network
and DNS for Domain name mapping.
◆ Internet access
TheGigaset Router permits Internet access via a WAN socket with a transmission
speed of 10 or 100 Mbps. You can connect a DSL or cable modem to this socket.
– Since many DSL providers permit communication with end users via the PPPoE
protocol, the Gigaset Router has an integrated Client for this protocol, that means
you no longer have to install this service on your computer.
– Shared IP address
If your Internet Service Provider permits this, the Gigaset Router can use a single
IP address jointly for up to 253 users. Several users on your network can then surf
the Internet at the same time using only one Internet Service Provider account.
◆ Virtual Private Network (VPN)
The Gigaset Router supports three of the most common Protocols for setting up a
Virtual Private Network: PPTP, L2TP and IPSec. This allows you to connect devices at
different locations via the Internet securely, if your Internet Service Provider offers
this service.

The Gigaset Router
◆ Protection against unauthorised access from the Internet
The Gigaset Router offers comprehensive security measures such as:
– Firewall with prevention of hacker attacks (e. g. SPI, DoS attacks)
Emails will be sent to notify you about any attacks on your network.
– NAT firewall
If Network Address Translation (NAT) has been activated, all the PCs on the local
network connect to the Internet using the router's Public IP address and as such
are not visible on the Internet themselves. The router permits access from the
Internet only if it has been requested from the local network.
– If you want to offer your own services on the Internet, you can configure the
router as a virtual server without permitting further access to the local network.
– DMZ
This allows you to release a PC on your local network for unrestricted access from
the Internet without undermining the security of the other PCs.
◆ Protection for the users of the local network, e. g. parental control
You can configure the Gigaset Router so that Internet access is blocked or limited for
various users. You can set time-based rules or specify that certain services or
Internet pages cannot be requested.

The Gigaset Router
Procedure for installation and configuration
1. First install an Ethernet network card or a wireless Network adapter such as the
Gigaset USB Adapter 11 or Gigaset PC Card 11 in the PCs you want to connect with
the Gigaset Router. The installation procedure can be found in the product's User
Guide.
i
When installing wireless network adapters you should note the
following:
The factory-set SSID of the Gigaset SE105 dsl/cable is
ConnectionPoint.
2. Then install the router (see page 13).
3. Before the PCs can communicate with the router and with each other in a local
network, you have to change their network settings. Configure these network
settings on one PC first so that it can establish a connection to the router. You can
then use that PC to configure the router (see page 17).
4. In a wireless connection you establish the link from the PC's wireless network
adapter to the router. This is described in the network adapter's operating
instructions.
5. Configure the router so that the router's WAN socket can be used (see page 44).
This will require the access data from your Internet Service Provider.
6. If you want to connect more PCs to the router, configure their network settings and
set up the local network (see page 17).
7. If you want to use the router's other functions, , e. g. the comprehensive security
functions, use the router's Advanced Setup (see page 59).

not need any special wiring. However you should comply with the following guidelines:
◆ Operate the Gigaset Router only indoors within a temperature range of +5 to +40 °C.
Do not position the Gigaset Router near a heat source. Do not cover the ventilation
slots.
◆ A mains socket for 220/230V~ and a connection socket for the DSL modem, cable
modem or LAN must be available where you set up the Gigaset Router.
◆ Do not place the router in the immediate vicinity of stereo equipment, TV sets or
microwave ovens. Otherwise this may cause interference.
◆ Position the Gigaset Router so that it is in the centre of your wireless network. In
general: The higher you place the antenna, the better the performance. Make sure
that where you position the Gigaset Router has optimum reception in the whole
house or office.
◆ Position the Gigaset Router on a non-slip surface.
The router feet do not normally leave any traces on the surface they are on.
However, some furniture surfaces may contain substances that attack and soften
the router's plastic feet. Then the feet may well mark the furniture surface.
◆ Position the Gigaset Router so that it cannot fall down and damage the antenna.
◆ Lay the cables so that nobody can trip over them. You should not cover the cables
with anything.
◆ Protect the Gigaset Router from dampness.

compatible wireless network adapter.
You define a Wireless network by assigning all the devices an identical SSID. Assign the
network adapters the router's SSID. The factory setting for the router's SSID is
ConnectionPoint.
If the correct SSID has been entered in your PC's wireless network adapter, the wireless
link will be established automatically once you connect your router to the mains power
supply (see page 16).

First Steps
Activation
Plug the power unit cable into the 9V 1A socket on the router. Plug the other end of the
power unit cable into a power outlet.
This will activate the router. Check whether the LED display for the mains (PWR) on the
front panel is lit up. If this is not the case, please turn to "Fault tracing" on page 92.
The wireless link to the PCs connected via a wireless network adapter will be established
automatically if their network adapters have been configured with the same SSID as the
router (see page 14). It can take a few seconds for the wireless connection to be
established.

Configuring the local network
Configuring the local network
Once you have set up the hardware and connected all the devices, you have to configure
the network settings of all the PCs that will communicate with each other via the Gigaset
Router.
The local network is set up as a TCP/IP network. You will have to make various choices
during the configuration procedure. The most important decision is whether you want
to use the router's DHCP service or not. The router uses DHCP (Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol) to assign Dynamic IP addresses for the network components,
i.e. it automatically assigns a PC that logs in an IP address from a defined address block.
The next time the PC logs on it may well be assigned a different IP address. How to
configure the router's dynamic address assignment is described on page 68 of the
section "LAN Configuration".
In this chapter we assume that you will use the router's DHCP service. This is also the
router's default setting.
In some cases however it is better to assign Static IP addresses, e. g. when you want to
use certain firewall functions. How to assign fixed IP addresses is described in "Practical
Tips and Configuration Examples" on the supplied CD.
If your network has already been set up you can read on from page 44 in the chapter
"Gigaset Router User Interface".
Network configuration differs depending on the Windows operating system you are
using. Below you will find the procedure for Windows 98 from page 18, for Windows XP
from page 27 and for Windows 2000 from page 35.
Have your Windows Installation CD to hand. You may be prompted to insert it.

The Windows user interfaces depicted in this guide may differ from those
on your screen because of the settings you have made. The illustrations
always reflect the state after immediate installation.

◆ Open command prompt. This can be done by clicking on Start – Programs –
command prompt.
◆ Enter the command ping 192.168.2.1.
i
If the router's IP address was changed, enter the new IP address.
The ping command sends data packets to the router with the specified IP address and
checks whether the router responds. If this is the case, the command presents statistics
about the connection, e. g. how many data packets were sent, how many received, how
long the transfer took, etc. If you can see this information then the connection to the
router is functioning properly.
If the command does not return any statistics, but ends with a time-out, then this means
that the components cannot communicate with each other. Check the following points:
1. Has the Ethernet cable between the Gigaset Router and the PC been inserted
properly or is there a wireless connection via a wireless network adapter?
The LED display for the LAN connections on the Gigaset Router and link display for
the network card in your PC must be illuminated. For wireless connections the
Gigaset WLAN Adapter Monitor must display connection information.
2. Has TCP/IP been properly configured on your computer?
If the Gigaset Router has IP address 192.168.2.1, your PC's IP-address must be
between 192.168.2.2 and 192.168.2.254, the default gateway must have the
address 192.168.2.1.
If you can reach the Gigaset Router with the ping command, then the PC has been
configured properly.

LAN Configuration
You can use LAN configuration to
◆ define an IP address for the router and
◆ define whether the router should automatically assign the IP addresses for the PCs
in your local network or not.
The default IP address for the router is 192.186.2.1. This is the router's Private IP
address. This is the address under which the router can be reached on the local network.
It can be freely assigned from the block of available addresses. The IP address under
which the router can be reached from outside is assigned by the Internet Service
Provider.
The router has a DHCP Server, whose factory setting is active. Thus the PCs' IP addresses
are automatically assigned by the router. If you want to assign static IP addresses for the
PCs, you will have to deactivate the DHCP server.
◆ If the router's DHCP server is active, configure the PCs' network
i
settings so that the Obtain an IP address automatically option is
checked. To find out how to do this, please turn to page 17 in
"Configuring the local network".
◆ If you deactivate the router's DHCP server, you will have to assign a
static IP address for the PCs using the network settings. This is
described in Practical Tips and Configuration Examples on the
supplied CD.
◆ Select LAN in the menu bar.

We recommend using an address from the block that is reserved for
private use. This is the address block 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.254.
◆ If the DHCP server is active, you will have to specify a Lease time. Lease Time defines
the period of time in which the PCs retain the IP address assigned to them without
changing them. For small networks you can set Lease time to Forever. This means
that an IP address is assigned for an unlimited period of time.
IP address pool
In IP address pool enter the range of IP addresses that the router is to use for
automatically assigning IP addresses to the PCs.
◆ Enter the first and last addresses.
i
The first three fields of the beginning and end IP address always have
as their default setting the first three fields of the router's IP address
because the subnet mask is always 255.255.255.0. This means that
the first three address segments for all network components must be
identical.

Wireless devices can register with your router only if its wireless module has been
activated.
◆ Open the Wireless menu.
◆ Activate the wireless module on Wireless Settings.
◆ Click on APPLY.
Setting the Channel and SSID
Before wireless network components can communicate with each other, you have to
use a shared wireless channel and the same SSID (Service Set Identifier).
The Gigaset SE105 dsl/cable comes supplied with the SSID configured
asConnectionPoint. For security reasons, it is advisable to change this SSID and
deactivate the broadcast function (SSID visible).
◆ In the Wireless menu, select Channel and SSID.

default setting is determined by the country setting (see page 49).
You should not change this setting unless you have a good reason to
do so.
◆ SSID visible
If the option has been activated, the Gigaset Router includes the SSID in all data
transmissions. In this case eavesdroppers could use the SSID to gain access to your
network.
If the option is deactivated, wireless network components that want to connect to
the local network must know the SSID. This offers a certain degree of protection
against unauthorised access.

Setting the Encryption
If you are sending sensitive data over wireless channels, we recommend that you
activate WEP-Encryption on your wireless network components.
i
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) protects data transmitted between
wireless nodes. However WEP does not protect transmission on your
wired network or over the Internet.
To activate WEP encryption on your wireless network components:
1. Activate Web encryption on your Gigaset SE105 dsl/cable and generate a
64- or 128-bit key Make a note of the generated key.
2. Activate Web encryption on wireless network adapters and enter the generated
64- or 128-bit key.
You can choose either the standard 64-bit key or the more robust 128-bit key for
encryption. The keys are generated in hexadecimal format. You have to use the same
keys for encryption and decryption for the Gigaset Router and all your wireless network
adapters.
Keys can be generated automatically. You can also enter them manually. For automatic
64-bit encryption, you enter a passphrase that is used to generate four keys. For
automatic 128-bit encryption, a single key is generated from the passphrase.
i

NAT Configuration
Your Gigaset Router comes supplied with the NAT function (Network Address
Translation). The NAT function acts as a firewall against unauthorised access from the
Internet.
◆ All the local IP addresses of the PCs in the local network are mapped to the router's
Public IP address. This means that each PC on the local network communicates with
the Internet via the router's IP address. One advantage of this is that only one
Internet access has to be bought from the Internet Service Provider even if you use
several PCs. A further advantage is that the PCs' local IP addresses remain
anonymous thus preventing any direct external access to the PCs on the local
network. The router knows which PC has launched which Internet application and
ensures that each local user receives the right data.
◆ No data from the Internet is allowed into your local network unless it has been
explicitly requested by one of the PCs on that network.
◆ The router opens only one Port for each Internet application, e. g. for email, FTP or
HTTP.
You can use the router's NAT settings to
◆ configure address mapping.
If you have several public IP addresses, your PCs can use them as well as the router's
IP address to connect to the Internet. This can be done by configuring the address
mapping appropriately (see page 74).
◆ set up the router as a virtual server.
If you want to offer files or Web services that are on a PC in your local network to
other Internet users, you will have set the router up as a virtual server (see page 75).
◆ configure Special Applications
Some applications, such as games, network conferences and voice over Internet,
will not work if Network Address Translation (NAT) has been activated. If you want
to use such applications nevertheless, then you will have to configure them as
"Special Applications" (see page 76).

address. If you have a large number of users on your local network, it may be advisable
to order several IP addresses from your Internet Service Provider. Then use address
mapping to define which local IP addresses will connect to the Internet via which public
IP address.

Setting up the router as a virtual server
If you want to offer files or Web services that are on a PC in your local network to other
Internet users, set the PC up as a server (e. g. as FTP or HTTP server). However the
router's NAT function does not normally allow "external" access to PCs on the local
network. To make services available on the Internet from local PCs, you have to set up
the router as a virtual server.
Externally the router takes on the role of the server. It receives the requests of remote
users under its public IP address and automatically redirects them to the local PCs. The
private IP addresses of the servers on the local network remain protected.
Internet services are addressed via defined port numbers. The router needs a mapping
table of the port numbers to redirect the service requests to the server that actually
makes the service available.
You have to set up this mapping table.

You will find a detailed example of how to set up the router as a virtual

Configuring Special Applications
One property of NAT is that data from the Internet is not allowed into your local network
unless it has been explicitly requested by one of the PCs on that network. Most Internet
applications run behind the NAT Firewall without any problems. If you request Internet
pages, for example, or send and receive emails, the request for data from the Internet
comes from a PC on the local network and so the router allows the data through. The
router opens exactly one Port for the application. If an external application tries to send
a call to a PC within the local network, the router will block it. There is no open port via
which the data could enter the local network.
Some applications, such as games, network conferences and voice over the Internet,
require several links, i.e. several ports, so that the users can communicate with each
other. In addition, these applications must also be permitted to send requests from
other users on the Internet to the user on the local network. These applications cannot
work if Network Address Translation (NAT) has been activated. If you want to use such
applications nevertheless, then you will have to configure them as Special
Applications. This means:
◆ You define a so-called trigger port for the application and assign it the public ports
that have to be opened for the application.
◆ The router checks all outgoing data for the port number. If it recognises a match
with a defined Trigger Port, then it will open the assigned public ports and notes the
IP address of the PC that sent the data. If data comes back from the Internet via one
of these public ports, it allows the data through and directs it to the right PC. A
trigger event always comes from a PC within the local network. If a Trigger Port is
addressed from outside, it is simply ignored by the router.

You will find a detailed example of how to configure special applications

Firewall Configuration
The router's Firewall functions include various security functions for the local network.
You can
◆ protect your network against hacker attacks (see page 78),
◆ enable only selected PCs to access your network (see page 80),
◆ restrict or totally block local users' access to the Internet (see page 81),
◆ exclude certain PCs from the firewall (see page 82).
i
Since the firewall has little impact on system performance, we
recommend that you activate it.
Activating the firewall
◆ Select the Firewall menu.
◆ Activate the firewall functions in the working area.
◆ Click on APPLY.
The firewall functions are now activated.

Configuration with Advanced Setup
Protection against hacker attacks
If you have activated your router's firewall functions, it will monitor and restrict the
access of data arriving via the WAN connection with a function called Stateful Packet
Inspection (SPI). This allows the router to identify and prevent certain types of attacks
from the Internet, such as Denial-of-Service (DoS). DoS attacks are aimed at devices and
networks with Internet connections. The aim is not so much to steal data but to paralyse
the computer or network to such an extent that the network resources are no longer
available. A typical hacker attack involves making a remote computer announce that it
is acting for the paralysed machine for example and receive the data meant for you.
i
The router prevents the following DoS attacks: Ping of Death (Ping Flood),
SYN Flood, IP Fragment (Teardrop), Brute-Force, Land, IP Spoofing, IP
with Zero Length, TCP Null Scan (Port Scan), UDP Port Loopback, Snork
etc.
You can use the Intrusion detection page to change the standard firewall settings and
arrange to be notified by email about any attempted hacker attacks.
◆ In the Firewall menu, select Intrusion detection.

Gigaset Router / de / A31008-E105-B100-2-19 / configure_router.fm / 05.06.2003
Configuration with Advanced Setup
Changing the standard firewall settings
You can activate or deactivate the following functions:
◆ SPI and anti-DoS firewall protection
The router monitors incoming data traffic. If this option has been activated, the
router will only let those data packets through that have requested by applications
run by users on your local network. All other data packets will be rejected.
You can release applications for incoming traffic using Stateful Packet Inspection.
If for example you activate only FTP service, all incoming traffic will be blocked
apart from the data for FTP connections that have been initiated on the local
network.
◆ RIP error
RIP is a protocol used by routers to exchange information about their networks.
Faulty RIP packets slow down the data flow and can be provoked to paralyse a
network. If this option has been activated, the firewall will identify and reject RIP
errors.
◆ Reject Ping from WAN side
A ping command can be used to tell whether a PC can be reached via the network.
If you activate this option, all attempts to contact a computer on the local network
with a ping will be blocked.
Notification of attempted hacker attacks
You can choose to be informed by email about a possible hacker attack.
◆ Enter in the dialog boxes in When hackers attempt to enter your network, we can
alert you by e-mail.
– the email address to be used for notification about hacker attacks.
– the address of the SMTP server (email server) of your Internet Service Provider,
e. g. mailto.t-online.de.

Enabling only selected PCs to access your local network
In the MAC filtering table you can enter up to 32 PCs that are allowed to access your
local network. All other computers will be denied access. Access control is based on the
PCs' MAC address.
◆ In the Firewall menu, select MAC filtering table.
◆ Activate the Yes option next to MAC Address Control so that the MAC addresses of
accessing PCs are checked.
There are two ways of making entries in the MAC filtering table:
◆ Enter the MAC addresses of those PCs you want to have access manually in Client
PC MAC address.
◆ If you have activated DHCP, all the PCs that are currently logged in will appear in the
DHCP Client list at the bottom of the page. Select a PC, decide in which row of the
table the entry is to appear and click on Copy to. The MAC address of the selected
PC will be transferred to the table.
◆ Once you have entered all the PCs you want, click on APPLY.
!
80
If you have activated the MAC address filter, you should enter at least one
PC from which you can configure the router. Otherwise you will not have
any access to the router's user interface. If you have accidentally denied
router access for all the PCs, you will have to completely reset the router.
To do this, hold down the reset button on the back of the router for at
least five seconds.

Restricting access of local PCs to the Internet
Under the general heading Firewall the Gigaset Router offers the following protection
functions:
◆ Complete isolation of a PC
This allows you to prevent any access at all to Web pages from a given PC. To do this
use the functions on the Firewall – Access control page.
◆ Blocking certain URLs
– Keyword filtering
This allows you to prevent the opening of Web pages whose URL contains certain
keywords that you have defined.
Example: Keyword abcd
This would block a website with the URL http://www.abcd.com
– URL filtering
This allows you to prevent the displaying of a website with a particular URL
address.
Example: URL http://www.abcd.com/products
This would block precisely the Web page http://www.abcd.com/products.
– Domain blocking
This allows you to block a particular URL address and all the subsequent addresses
that begin with the same sequence of characters.
Example: Domain http://www.abcd.com
All Web pages beginning with http://www.abcd.com would be blocked, e.g.
http://www.abcd.com and also http://www.abcd.com/products,
http://www.abcd.com/service, http://www.abcd.com/products/
product_graphics1.htm etc.
To do this use the functions on the Firewall – URL blocking page.
◆ Time limits for blocks
You can define a particular block period or a schedule during which certain blocks
become active. You can include the four block strategies described above in this
schedule.
To do this use the functions on the Firewall – Schedule Rule page.

Opening the firewall for particular PCs (DMZ)
Some applications do not work properly behind a firewall because they require
unrestricted data flow in both directions. In this case you can define a so-called
demilitarised zone (DMZ) for PCs running such applications.
When setting up DMZ PCs make sure that the PCs always have the same
IP address. This means:
◆ the IP addresses must be static (see "Practical Tips and Configuration
Examples") or
◆ the Lease time for dynamic address assignment must be set to
Forever (see page 69).
i
◆ In the Firewall menu, select DMZ.
◆ The Public IP address has as the first entry the router's Public IP address. If you have
other public IP addresses, enter them under the router address.
◆ In Client PC IP address enter the IP addresses of the PCs you want to exclude from
the firewall functions.
!
Please bear in mind that these PCs are no longer protected against
unauthorised access from the Internet and as such could be a security
risk for your network. You should use this option only in emergency
situations.

Activating dynamic DNS
A service you want to make available on the Internet is accessible via a Domain name.
Your router's Public IP address is assigned to this Domain name. If your Internet Service
Provider for your local network's WAN connection assigns the IP address dynamically,
the IP address of the router can change. Then the assignment to the Domain name is no
longer valid and your service will no longer be available.
In this case you must ensure that the assignment of the IP address to the Domain name
is regularly updated. This is handled by the dynamic DNS Service (DynDNS). You can use
the DynDNS service to assign your Gigaset Router an individual static Domain name on
the Internet even if it does not have a static IP address.
There are various providers on the Internet offering free DynDNS Service. The Gigaset
Router uses the DynDNS Service from DynDNS.org
(http://www.DynDNS.org). If you use the service of this DynDNS provider, then your
service can be reached on the Internet as a subdomain of one of the DynDNS.org
domains.
If you have activated the router's DynDNS function, it will monitor its public IP address.
When this changes, it will open a connection to DynDNS.org and update its IP address
there.
You have to open an account with DynDNS.org before you can use the router's DynDNS
function. Follow the instructions on the DynDNS.org website. Then enter the account
user data when configuring the router.

Access point
An Access Point, such as the Gigaset SE105 dsl/cable, is the centre of a wireless local
network (WEP). It handles the connection of the wireless linked network components
and regulates the data traffic in the wireless network. The Access Point also serves as an
interface to other networks, e. g. an already existing Ethernet LAN or via a modem to
the Internet. The operating mode of wireless networks with an Access Point is called
Infrastructure mode.
Ad-hoc mode
Ad-hoc modus describes wireless local networks (WEP) in which the network
components set up a spontaneous network without an Access point, e. g. several
Notebooks in a conference. All the network components are peers. They must have a
wireless Network adapter.
Auto-reconnect
Auto-reconnect means that applications such as Web browser, Messenger and Email can
automatically open an Internet connection when they are launched. This can lead to
high charges if you are not using Flat rate. Auto-reconnect can be deactivated at the
Gigaset Router to save call charges.
Bridge
A Bridge connects several network segments to form a joint network, e. g. to make a
TCP/IP network. The segments can have different physical characteristics, e. g. different
connections such as Ethernet and wireless LANs. Linking individual segments via
Bridges allows local networks of practically unlimited size.
See also: Switch, Hub, Router, Gateway
Broadcast
A Broadcast is a data packet not directed to a particular recipient but to all the network
components on the network. The Gigaset Router does not pass broadcast packets on;
they always remain within the local network (LAN) it administers.
BSSID
Basic Service Set ID
BSSID permits unique differentiation of one wireless network (WEP) from another. In
Infrastructure mode the BSSID is the MAC address of the Access point. In wireless
networks in Ad-hoc mode the BSSID is the MAC address of any one of the participants.
Client
A Client is an application that requests a service from a Server. For example, an http
Client on a PC in a local network requests data, i.e. Web pages from an HTTP Server on
the Internet. Frequently the network component (e. g. the PC) on which the Client
application is running is also called a Client.
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
DHCP handles the automatic assignment of IP addresses to network components. It was
developed because in large networks – especially the Internet – the defining of IP
addresses is very complex as participants frequently move, drop out or new ones join.
100
Gigaset Router / de / A31008-E105-B100-2-19 / glossary.fm / 05.06.2003
Glossary
A DHCP Server automatically assigns the connected network components (DHCP
Clients) Dynamic IP addresses from a defined IP address pool thus saving a great deal of
configuration work. It also allows address pools to be used more effectively: Since not
all participants are on the network at the same time, the same IP address can be
assigned to different network components in succession as and when required.
The Gigaset Router includes a DHCP Server and so it can automatically assign IP
addresses for the PCs on its local network. You can configure the Lease time so that once
an IP address has been assigned it will never change.
DHCP Server
See DHCP
DMZ
Demilitarised Zone
DMZ describes a part of a network that is outside the Firewall. A DMZ is so to speak set
up between a network you want to protect (e. g. a LAN) and an insecure network (e. g.
the Internet). A DMZ is useful if you want to offer Server services on the Internet which
for security reasons are not to be run from behind the firewall or if Internet applications
do not work properly behind a firewall. A DMZ permits unrestricted access from the
Internet to only one or a few network components, while the other network
components remain secure behind the firewall.
DNS
Domain Name System
DNS permits the assignment of IP addresses to computer or Domain names that are
easier to remember. A DNS Server has to administer this information for each LAN with
an Internet connection. As soon as a page on the Internet is called up, the browser
obtains the corresponding IP address from the DNS Server so that it can establish the
connection.
On the Internet the assignment of Domain names to IP addresses follows a hierarchical
system. A local PC only knows the address of the local Name Server. This in turn knows
all the addresses of the computers in the local network and the next higher Name
Server, which again knows addresses in its network and that of the next Name Server.
DNS Server
See DNS
Domain name
The Domain name is the reference to one or more Web Servers on the Internet. The
Domain name is mapped via the DNS service to the corresponding IP address.
DoS attack
Denial of Service
A DoS attack is a particular form of hacker attack directed at computers and networks
with a connection to the Internet. The aim is not so much to steal data but to paralyse
the computer or network to such an extent that the network resources are no longer
available. A typical hacker attack involves making a remote computer announce that it
is acting for the paralysed machine for example and receive the data meant for you.
DSL
Digital Subscriber Line

Glossary
DSL is a data transmission technique in which a connection to the Internet can be run
at 1.5 Mbps over normal telephone lines. A DSL connection is provided by an Internet
Service Provider. It requires a DSL modem.
Dynamic IP address
A dynamic IP address is assigned to a network component automatically via DHCP.
Depending on the setting for the Lease time the IP address of a network component can
change every time it logs on or in certain time intervals.
See also: Static IP address
DynDNS
Dynamic DNS
Domain Name Service (DNS) is used to assign Domain names and IP addresses. For
Dynamic IP addresses this service is now enhanced with so-called Dynamic DNS
(DynDNS). This permits the use of a PC with a changing IP address as a Server on the
Internet. DynDNS ensures that a service can always be addressed on the Internet under
the same Domain name regardless of the current IP address.
Encryption
Encryption protects confidential information against unauthorised access. With an
encryption system data packets can be sent securely over a network. The Gigaset Router
WEP encryption for secure data transmission over wireless networks.
Ethernet
Ethernet is a network technology for local networks (LAN) defined by IEEE as Standard
IEEE 802.3. Ethernet uses a base band cable with a transmission rate of 10 or 100 Mbps.
Firewall
Firewalls are used by network operators as protection against unauthorised external
access. This involves a whole bundle of hardware and software actions and technologies
that monitor and control the data flow between the private network to be protected and
an unprotected network such as the Internet.

IEEE
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
IEEE is an international body for defining network standards, especially for
standardizing LAN technologies, transmission protocols and speeds, and wiring.
IEEE 802.11
IEEE 802.11 is a standard for wireless 2.4-GHz band LANs. In so-called Infrastructure
mode end devices can be connected to a base station (Access point) or connect with
each other spontaneously (Ad-hoc mode).
Infrastructure mode
Infrastructure mode is a way of operating wireless local networks (WEP), in which an
Access point handles the data traffic. Network components cannot establish a direct
connection with each other as is the case in Ad-hoc mode.
Internet
The Internet is a wide-area network (WAN) linking several million users around the
world. A number of Protocols have been defined for exchanging data known by the
name TCP/IP. All participants in the Internet are identifiable by an IP address. Servers are
addressed by a Domain name (e. g. siemens.com). Domain Name Service (DNS) is used
to assign Domain names to IP addresses.
Among the most important Internet services are:
◆ electronic mail (email)
◆ the World Wide Web (WWW)
◆ file transfer (FTP)
◆ discussion forums (Usenet / Newsgroups)
Internet Service Provider
An Internet Service Provider offers access to the Internet for a fee.
IP
Internet Protocol
The IP Protocol is one of the TCP/IP protocols. It is responsible for the addressing of
participants in a network using IP addresses and routes data from the sender to the
recipient. It decides the paths along which the data packets travel from the sender to
the recipient in a complex network (routing).
IP address
An IP address is a network-wide unique address of a network component in a network
based on the TCP/IP protocol (e. g. in a local network (LAN) or on the Internet). The IP
address has four parts (decimal numbers) separated by periods (e. g. 192.168.2.1). The
IP address comprises the network number and the computer number. Depending on the

Subnet mask one, two or three parts form the network number, the remainder the
computer number. You can find out the IP address of your PC using the ipconfig
command.
IP addresses can be assigned manually (see Static IP address) or automatically (see
Dynamic IP address).
On the Internet Domain names are normally used instead of the IP addresses. DNS is
used to assign Domain names to IP addresses.
The Gigaset Router has a Private IP address and a Public IP address.
IP address pool
The Gigaset Router's IP address pool defines a range of IP addresses that the router's
DHCP Server can use to assign Dynamic IP addresses.
IPSec
Internet Protocol Security
The term IPSec covers a number of Protocols used for encrypted transmission of data
packets over the Internet. IPSec uses digital certificates for device authentication. IPSec
is offered by Internet Service Providers for implementing Virtual Private Networks (VPN).

L2TP
Layer Two Tunneling Protocol
L2TP is an extension of PPTP and is offered by Internet Service Providers for
implementing Virtual Private Networks (VPN). It covers most of the features of PPTP but
with less overhead and is better for managed networks.
LAN
A local network links network components so that they can exchange data and share
resources. The physical range is restricted to a particular area (a site). As a rule the users
and operators are identical. A local network can be connected to other local networks
or a wide-area network (WAN) such as the Internet.
With the Gigaset SE105 dsl/cable you can set up both a wired local Ethernet network and
a wireless IEEE 802.11b-standard network.
Lease time
Lease Time defines the period of time in which the PCs retain the Dynamic IP address
assigned to them by the DHCP server without changing them.
Local IP address
See Private IP address
MAC address
Media Access Control
The MAC address is used for the globally unique identification of a Network adapter. It
comprises six parts (hexadecimal numbers), e. g. 00-90-96-34-00-1A. The MAC address
is assigned by the network adapter manufacturer and cannot be changed.

MTU
Maximum Transmission Unit
The MTU defines the maximum length of a data packet that can transported over the
network at a time.
NAT
Network Address Translation
NAT is a method for implementing IP addresses (mostly Private IP addresses) in a
network on one or more Public IP addresses on the Internet. With NAT several network
components in a LAN can share the router's public IP address to connect to the Internet.
The network components of the local network are hidden behind the router's IP address
registered on the Internet. As a result of this security function NAT is frequently used as
part of the network Firewall. If you want to make services on a PC in the local network
available on the Internet despite NAT, you can configure the Gigaset Router as a Virtual
server.
Network
A network is a group of devices connected in wired or wireless mode so that they can
share resources such as files and peripherals. A general distinction is made between
local networks (LAN) and wide-area networks (WAN).
Network adapter
The network adapter is the hardware device that realises the connection of a network
component to a local network. The connection can be wired or wireless. A wired
network adapter is for example an Ethernet network card. Wireless network adapters are
for example the Gigaset USB Adapter 11 and the Gigaset PC Card 11.
A network adapter has a unique address, the MAC address.
Port
Data is exchanged between two applications in a network via a Port. The port number
addresses an application within a network component. The combination IP address/port
number uniquely identifies the recipient or sender of a data packet within a network.
Some applications (e. g. Internet services such as HTTP or FTP) work with fixed port
numbers, others are allocated a free port number every time they need one.
Port Forwarding
In Port Forwarding the Gigaset Router directs data packets from the Internet that are
addressed to a particular Port to the corresponding port of the appropriate network
component. This enables servers on the local network to offer services on the Internet
without them needing a Public IP address.

An Internet connection using PPTP Protocol that creates a "tunnel" within an Internet
connection for secure private connection in which the data are sent in encrypted form.
The PPTP protocol is used in a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
Private IP address
The private IP address is is a network component's address on the local network (LAN).
The network operator can assign any address he or she wants. Devices that act as a link
from a local network, such as the Gigaset Router, have a private and a Public IP address.
Protocol
A protocol describes the agreements for communicating on a network. A protocol
contains rules for opening, administering and closing a connection, about data formats,
time frames and error handling. Communications between two applications require
different protocols at various levels, e. g the TCP/IP protocols for the Internet.
Public IP address
The public IP address is a network component's address on the Internet. It is assigned by
the Internet Service Provider. Devices that act as a link from a local network, such as the
Gigaset Router have a public and a private Private IP address.
Remote Management
Remote Management describes the possibility of administering a network from a
network component that is not on the local network (LAN) itself.
Router
A router directs data packets from one local network (LAN) to another via the fastest
route. A router permits the connecting of network with different network technologies.
For example, it can link a local network with Ethernet or WEP technology to the Internet.
See also: Bridge, Switch, Hub, Gateway
Server
A Server makes a service available to other network components (Clients). Frequently
the term Server is used for a computer or PC. But it can also mean an application that
provides a particular services such as DNS or Web service.
SMTP
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol
The SMTP Protocol is part of the TCP/IP protocol family. It governs the exchange of
electronic mail on the Internet. Your Internet Service Provider provides you with access
to an SMTP server.
SPI
Stateful Packet Inspection
SPI is a packet filter used in a Firewall as protection against hacker attacks. If SPI has been
activated, the router applies particular security rules to inspect all data packets arriving
from the Internet . This will identify DoS attacks (Denial of Service) for example.
SSID
Service Set Identifier
The SSID is used to identify the stations of a wireless network (WEP). All wireless
network component with the same SSID form a common network. The SSID can be
assigned by the network operator.

Static IP address
A static IP address is assigned to a network component manually during network
configuration. Unlike a Dynamic IP address, a static IP address never changes.
Subnet mask
The subnet mask determines how many parts of the IP addresses of a network represent
the network number and how many the computer number.
The subnet mask administered by the Gigaset Router is always 255.255.255.0. That
means the first three parts of the IP address form the network number and the final part
is used for assigning computer numbers. The first three parts of the IP address of all
network components are in this case always the same.
Subnetwork
A subnetwork divides a network into smaller units.
Switch
A Switch, like a Hub, is an element for linking different network segments or
components. Unlike a hub, the switch has its own intelligence that enables it to further
packets to only that subnetwork or network component they are meant for.

TCP
Transmission Control Protocol
The TCP Protocol is part of the TCP/IP protocol family. TCP handles data transport
between communication partners (applications). TCP is a session-based transmission
protocol, i.e. it sets up, monitors and terminates a connection for transporting data.
See also: UDP
TCP/IP
Protocol family on which the Internet is based. IP forms the foundation for each
computer-to-computer connection. TCP provides applications with a reliable
transmission link in the form of a continuous data stream. TCP/IP is the basis on which
services such as WWW, Mail and News are built. There are other protocols as well.
Tunneling
Tunneling is a procedure in which the data traffic of the one Protocol is transmitted with
the help of a different protocol. For example, data packets of a private network can be
packed in IP packets and transported over the Internet as if in a tunnel. Tunneling
procedures are used nowadays for the secure transmission of data in a Virtual Private
Network (VPN). The IP packets from the local network are encrypted using a tunneling
protocol (e. g. PPTP) before being sent over the Internet.
UDP
User Datagram Protocol
UDP is a Protocol of the TCP/IP protocol family that handles data transport between
communication partners (applications). Unlike TCP UDP is a non-session based protocol.
It does not establish a fixed connection. The data packets, so-called datagrams, are sent
as a Broadcast. The recipient is responsible for making sure the data is received. The
sender is not notified about whether it is received or not.
