Introduction to Broadband Router
Technology
A router is a device that forwards data packets from a source to a
destination. Routers forward data packets using IP addresses and not a
MAC address. A router will forward data from the Internet to a particular
computer on your LAN.
The information that makes up the Internet gets moved around using
routers. When you click on a link on a web page, you send a request to a
server to show you the next page. The information that is sent and received
from your computer is moved from your computer to the server using routers.
A router also determines the best route that your information should follow to
ensure that the information is delivered properly.
A router controls the amount of data that is sent through your network
by eliminating information that should not be there. This provides security for
the computers connected to your router, because computers from the
outside cannot access or send information directly to any computer on your
network. The router determines which computer the information should be
forwarded to and sends it. If the information is not intended for any computer
on your network, the data is discarded. This keeps any unwanted or harmful
information from accessing or damaging your network.
Introduction to Firewalls
A firewall is a device that sits between your computer and the Internet
that prevents unauthorized access to or from your network. A firewall can be
a computer using firewall software or a special piece of hardware built
specifically to act as a firewall. In most circumstances, a firewall is used to
prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks or
corporate LAN’s and Intranets.
A firewall watches all of the information moving to and from your
network and analyzes each piece of data. Each piece of data is checked
against a set of criteria that the administrator configures. If any data does not
meet the criteria, that data is blocked and discarded. If the data meets the
criteria, the data is passed through. This method is called packet filtering.
A firewall can also run specific security functions based on the type of
application or type of port that is being used. For example, a firewall can be
configured to work with an FTP or Telnet server. Or a firewall can be
configured to work with specific UDP or TCP ports to allow certain
applications or games to work properly over the Internet.
Introduction to Local Area Networking
Local Area Networking (LAN) is the term used when connecting
several computers together over a small area such as a building or group of
buildings. LAN’s can be connected over large areas. A collection of LAN’s
connected over a large area is called a Wide Area Network (WAN).
A LAN consists of multiple computers connected to each other. There
are many types of media that can connect computers together. The most
common media is CAT5 cable (UTP or STP twisted pair wire.) On the other
hand, wireless networks do not use wires; instead they communicate over
radio waves. Each computer must have a Network Interface Card (NIC),
which communicates the data between computers. A NIC is usually a
10Mbps network card, or 10/100Mbps network card, or a wireless network
card.
Most networks use hardware devices such as hubs or switches that
each cable can be connected to in order to continue the connection between
computers. A hub simply takes any data arriving through each port and
forwards the data to all other ports. A switch is more sophisticated, in that a
switch can determine the destination port for a specific piece of data. A
switch minimizes network traffic overhead and speeds up the communication
over a network.
Networks take some time in order to plan and implement correctly.
There are many ways to configure your network. You may want to take
some time to determine the best network set-up for your needs.
Introduction to Virtual Private Networking
6
Virtual Private Networking (VPN) uses a publicly wired network (the
Internet) to securely connect two different networks as if they were the same
network. For example, an employee can access the corporate network from
home using VPN, allowing the employee to access files and printers. Here
are several different implementations of VPN that can be used.
Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP)
PPTP uses proprietary means of connecting two private networks over the
Internet. PPTP is a way of securing the information that is communicated
between networks. PPTP secures information by encrypting the data inside
of a packet.
IP Security (IPSec)
IPSec provides a more secure network-to-network connection across the
Internet or a Wide Area Network (WAN). IPSec encrypts all communication
between the client and server whereas PPTP only encrypts the data packets.
Both of these VPN implementations are used because there is not a
standard for VPN server software. Because of this, each ISP or business
can implement its own VPN network making interoperability a challenge.

Service Provider) and have Internet access within minutes.
WAN
WAN is short for Wide Area Network. The WAN settings can be referred to
as the Public settings. All IP information in the WAN settings are public IP
addresses which are accessible on the Internet.
The WAN settings consist of these options: Dynamic IP Address, Dynamic
IP (w/RoadRunner,) Static IP Address, PPPoE, and PPTP. Select the
appropriate option and fill in the information needed to connect to your ISP.
HOME > WAN > DYNAMIC IP ADDRESS
Choose Dynamic IP Address to obtain IP address information automatically
from your ISP. Select this option if your ISP does not give you any IP
numbers to use. This option is commonly used for Cable modem services.
Host Name: The Host Name field is optional but may be required by some
ISPs. The host name is the device name of the Broadband Router.
Click Apply if you have made changes.
14
HOME > WAN > STATIC IP ADDRESS
Choose Static IP Address if all WAN IP information is provided to you by
your ISP. You will need to enter in the IP address, subnet mask, gateway
address, and DNS address(es) provided to you by your ISP. Each IP
address entered in the fields must be in the appropriate IP form, which are
four IP octets separated by a dot (x.x.x.x). The Router will not accept the IP
address if it is not in this format.
WAN IP Address: Public IP address provided by your ISP.
WAN Subnet Mask: Subnet mask provided by your ISP.
WAN Gateway Address: Public IP address of your ISP that you are
connecting to.
Primary DNS Address: Primary DNS (Domain Name Server) IP provided
by your ISP
Secondary DNS Address: optional
Click Apply if you have made changes.
HOME > WAN > PPPOE
Choose PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet) if your ISP uses PPPoE
connection. Your ISP will provide you with a username and password. This option is
typically used for DSL services.
PPPoE Account: Your PPPoE account is provided by your ISP
PPPoE Password: Your PPPoE password is provided by your ISP
Primary DNS Address: Primary DNS IP Address is provided by your ISP
Secondary DNS Address: optional
Maximum Idle Time: The amount of time of inactivity before disconnecting
your PPPoE session. Enter a Maximum Idle Time (in minutes) to define a
maximum period of time for which the Internet connection is maintained
during inactivity. If the connection is inactive for longer than the defined
Maximum Idle Time, then the connection will be dropped. Either set this to
zero or enable Auto-reconnect to disable this feature.
PPPoE Service Name:
(optional)
Enter the Service Name provided by your ISP.
Assigned IP Address: This option is only available for Static PPPoE. Enter
in the Static IP Address for the PPPoE connection.
Click Apply if you have made changes.
16
HOME > LAN
LAN is short for Local Area Network. This is considered your internal
network. These are the IP settings of the LAN interface for the DI-604. These
settings may be referred to as Private settings. You may change the LAN IP
address if needed. The LAN IP address is private to your internal network
and cannot be seen on the Internet.
LAN IP Address: The IP address of the LAN interface. The default IP
address is 192.168.0.1.
DHCP Server: Choose Enable or Disable
The range of the IP Address Pool: Whenever there is a request, the DHCP
server will automatically allocate an unused IP Address from the IP Address
Pool to the requesting computer. You must specify the starting and ending
address of the IP Address pool.
Domain Name: This field is optional. Enter in the your local domain name.
Click Apply if you have made any changes.
DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DI-604 has a built-in DHCP server. The DHCP
Server will automatically assign an IP address to the computers on the LAN/private network. Be sure
to set your computers to be DHCP clients by setting their TCP/IP settings to “Obtain an IP Address
Automatically.” When you turn your computers on, they will automatically load the proper TCP/IP
settings provided by the DI-604. The DHCP Server will automatically allocate an unused IP address
from the IP address pool to the requesting computer. You must specify the starting and ending
address of the IP address pool.
ADVANCED > VIRTUAL SERVER
The firewall filters out unrecognized packets to protect your LAN (local area network);
so all computers networked with the DI-604 are invisible to the outside world. If you
wish, you can make some of them accessible by enabling the Virtual Server
Mapping.
A virtual server is defined as a Service Port, and all requests to this port will be
redirected to the computer specified by the Server IP.
For example, if you have an FTP server (port 21) at 192.168.0.1, a Web server (port
80) at 192.168.0.2, and a VPN server at 192.168.0.6, then you need to specify the
following virtual server-mapping table:
Service Port
Server IP
Enable
21
192.168.0.1
V
80
192.168.0.2
V
1723
192.168.0.6
V
18
ADVANCED > APPLICATIONS
Some applications require multiple connections, like Internet games, Video
conferencing, Internet telephony and so on. Due to the firewall function,
these applications cannot work without some intervention. Special
Applications makes some of these applications work with the DI-604. If
Special Applications is still insufficient to allow an application to function
correctly, try the DMZ Host in the Miscellaneous Items options.
Trigger: the outbound port number the application issued first.
Incoming Ports: when the trigger packet is detected, the inbound packets to
the specified port numbers are allowed to pass the firewall.
The DI-604 provides some predefined settings in the gray pad on the bottom
of the web page. Select your application in the Popular applications pulldown menu and click Copy to in order to copy the predefined setting.
Note! At any time, only one PC can use each Special Application tunnel.
Click Apply if you have made any changes.
ADVANCED>FILTER
MAC Address Control allows you to assign different access rights for different
users and to assign a specific IP address to a certain MAC address.
MAC Address Control: Check Enable to enable the MAC Address Control. All of
the settings in this page will take effect only when Enable is checked.
Connection control: Check Connection control to control what wired and wireless
clients can connect to this device. If a client is denied connection to this device, it
means the client can't access the Internet either. Choose "allow" or "deny" to allow
or deny the clients, whose MAC addresses are not in the "Control table" (please see
below), to connect to this device.
MAC Address
MAC address indicates a specific client.
IP Address
Expected IP address of the corresponding
client. You may choose to leave this field
empty.
C
When "Connection control" is checked,
check "C" to allow the corresponding client
to connect to this device.
20
Near the bottom of the MAC Address Control window, the following pull-down
menu and button will help you to input the MAC address.
Select a specific client in the “DHCP clients” pull-down menu.
Click on the “Copy to” button to copy the MAC address of the DHCP client you
select to the ID selected in the “ID” pull-down menu.
Previous page and Next Page: At the bottom of the MAC Address Control
window you will find these two buttons. Use them to navigate between the several
pages of the MAC Address Control function.
ADVANCED > FIREWALL
The Firewall enables you to control what packets are allowed to pass the
router. Outbound filter applies on all outbound packets. However, Inbound
filter applies on packets that are destined for Virtual Servers or DMZ host
only. You can select one of the two filtering policies:
1. Allow all to pass except those that match the specified rules
2. Deny all to pass except those that match the specified rules
You can specify 8 rules for inbound or outbound. For each rule, you can
define the following:
•
Source IP address
•
Source port address
•
Destination IP address
22
•
Destination port address
For source or destination IP address, you can define a single IP address
(e.g., 4.3.2.1) or a range of IP addresses (e.g., 4.3.2.1-4.3.2.254). An empty
fields implies all IP addresses.
For source or destination port, you can define a single port (e.g., 80) or a
range of ports (e.g., 1000-1999).
Each rule can be enabled or disabled individually.
Inbound Filter:
To enable the Inbound Packet Filter, click the check box next to Enable in
the Inbound Packet Filter field.
Outbound Firewall: (to access the Outbound Filter, click Outbound
Firewall at the bottom of the window.)
To enable the Outbound Packet Filter click the check box next to Enable in
the Outbound Packet Filter field.
Follow the same procedure as for the Inbound Firewall. The IP addresses
that you input will be blocked from the port activity that you input (e.g.,
browsing the internet, receiving mail etc.)
After Outbound Packet Filter setting is configured, click the Apply button.
ADVANCED > SNMP
In brief, SNMP, the Simple Network Management Protocol, is a protocol
designed to give a user the capability to remotely manage a computer
network by polling and setting terminal values and monitoring network
events.
To enable SNMP click the check box next to Local or Remote in the Enable
SNMP field.
Local: allow manager to access this device through LAN port
Remote: allow manager to access this device through WAN port
You can define:
Get Community: The Get community field is the name of your network.
Your SNMP manager must have the same name in their Get community
setting to get SNMP values from this device.
Set Community: The Set community field is the name of your network.
Your SNMP manager must have the same name in their Set community
setting to set this device’s SNMP values.
Click Apply if you have made any changes.
24
ADVANCED > DDNS
Dynamic DNS
To host your server on a changing IP address, you have to use dynamic domain
name service (DDNS).
Anyone wishing to reach your host only needs to know the name of it. Dynamic DNS
will map the name of your host to your current IP address, which changes each time
you connect to your Internet service provider.
Before you enable Dynamic DNS, you need to register an account on one of these
Dynamic DNS servers that we list in the provider field.
To enable Dynamic DNS click the check box next to Enable in the DDNS field.
Next you can enter the appropriate information about your Dynamic DNS Server.
You have to define:
Provider
Host Name
Username/E-mail
Password/Key
You will get this information when you register an account on a Dynamic DNS server.
Click Apply if you have made any changes.
ADVANCED > ROUTING
Routing allows you to determine which physical interface address to use for
outgoing IP data grams. If you have more than one router and subnet, you will need
to enable the routing table to allow packets to find the proper routing path and allow
different subnets to communicate with each other.
To enable the Routing Table, click the check box next to Enable in the related field.
You have to define:
Destination
Subnet Mask
Gateway
Hop: router’s position compared to this Device; if it is under this device, then input 2.
For example, if the host wanted to send an IP data gram to 192.168.3.88
(destination), it would use the above table to determine that it had to go via
192.168.1.33 (a gateway),
Each rule can be enabled or disabled individually.
After the routing table setting is configured, click Apply.
26
Troubleshooting
If you do not wish to set the static IP address on your PC, you will need to
configure your PC to request an IP address from the gateway.
Click the Start button, select Settings, and select Control Panel.
Double-click the Network icon.
In the configuration tab, select the TCP/IP protocol line that has been
associated with your network card/adapter. If there is no TCP/IP line listed,
you will need to install TCP/IP now.
Click the Properties button.
Choose the IP ADDRESS tab. Select Obtain an IP automatically.
After clicking OK, windows might ask you to restart the PC. Click Yes.
CONFIRM YOUR PC’S IP CONFIGURATION
There are two tools which are great for finding out a computer’s IP
configuration: MAC address and default gateway.
WINIPCFG (for Windows 95/98)
Inside the windows 95/98 Start button, select Run and type winipcfg. In the
example below this computer has an IP address of 192.168.0.100 and the
default gateway is 192.168.0.1. The default gateway should be the network
device IP address. The MAC address in windows 95/98 is called the Adapter
Address.
NOTE: You can also type winipcfg in the DOS command prompt.
28
IPCONFIG (for Windows 2000/NT/XP)
At the command prompt type IPCONFIG and press Enter. Your PC IP
information will be displayed as shown below.
Assigning a Static IP Address
Note: Residential Gateways/Broadband Routers will automatically assign IP
Addresses to the computers on the network, using DHCP (Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol) technology. If you are using a DHCP-capable
Gateway/Router you will not need to assign Static IP Addresses.

discretion replace the defective Hardware (or any part thereof) with any reconditioned product that D-Link
reasonably determines is substantially equivalent (or superior) in all material respects to the defective
Hardware. The Warranty Period shall extend for an additional ninety (90) days after any repaired or
replaced Hardware is delivered. If a material defect is incapable of correction, or if D-Link determines in
its sole discretion that it is not practical to repair or replace the defective Hardware, the price paid by the
original purchaser for the defective Hardware will be refunded by D-Link upon return to D-Link of the
defective Hardware. All Hardware (or part thereof) that is replaced by D-Link, or for which the purchase
price is refunded, shall become the property of D-Link upon replacement or refund.

refunded by D-Link; provided that the non-conforming Software (and all copies thereof) is first returned to
