Wired local area network (Ethernet)
In a wired local area network, PCs communicate with one another via an Ethernet cable.
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN establishes the connection between the PCs, which you can
connect to the four Ethernet LAN ports. The PCs must be equipped with a network
socket (Ethernet). New PCs frequently already have this socket. For older PCs you will
need to install an Ethernet network card. An Ethernet cable (CAT5) is used to connect
the PC to the Ethernet LAN socket on the Gigaset SE361 WLAN. One cable is supplied
with the device; you can obtain additional Ethernet cables from your retailer.
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN allows all PCs to access the Internet simultaneously.

Wireless local area network (WLAN)
In a wireless local area network (WLAN) PCs are linked without wires or cables. For this
the PCs have to be equipped with a wireless network adapter (WLAN adapter) such as a
Gigaset USB Stick 54 or you can use a PC with a wireless option built in.
We generally differentiate between two types of wireless network:
u Infrastructure mode
u Ad-hoc mode
Infrastructure mode
Infrastructure mode connects wireless and wired networks with one another. In addition to the mobile stations, the infrastructure mode needs an access point such as the
Gigaset SE361 WLAN. In infrastructure mode the stations in the network always communicate via this access point. Each station that wants to be part of a wireless network
must first be registered with the access point before it can exchange data.
The access point establishes the connection between the mobile stations of a wireless
network and a wired LAN (Ethernet) or the Internet. This is described as the device's
router functionality. The router sends data packets that are not addressed to stations
within the network "outside," and forwards data packets originating from "outside" to
the appropriate station within the network.
You can use the Gigaset SE361 WLAN to connect
u wirelessly networked PCs to the Internet and
u wirelessly networked PCs to an Ethernet network.
Infrastructure mode is the default configuration of the Gigaset SE361 WLAN. This configuration is described in the quick guide that comes with the device.
Ad-hoc mode
An ad-hoc network is a wireless network that has been configured without an access
point or a router. The mobile network components that communicate with each other
directly and wirelessly form the network on an "ad-hoc" basis, i.e. as and when required.
All the stations in the network have the same rights. Ad-hoc networks are used wherever communications networks have to be set up quickly and without any existing network infrastructure, and where participants are on the move.

Linking wireless networks with the Internet
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN has a WAN port that permits all stations within its local area
network to access the Internet simultaneously. To be able to use this functionality you
need a DSL or cable connection and a suitable modem. You can usually obtain the line
and a modem from an Internet service provider.

This illustration shows the commonest method of application. One or more PCs communicate wirelessly with the Gigaset SE361 WLAN in infrastructure mode. The Gigaset
SE361 WLAN forwards the data to the Internet via a DSL or cable modem. Data from the
Internet flows back to the PC along the same route.

Ethernet
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN has four Ethernet interfaces (LAN ports). Up to four PCs can
be connected directly to these LAN ports.
All PCs can access the Internet via the Gigaset SE361 WLAN.
Note:
You can also connect an Ethernet router or switch to a LAN port to access a larger Ethernet. If you want to link the Gigaset WLAN network to an existing network, a large
number of settings have to be applied. It is therefore not possible for us to provide a
general example for this use; configuration must be defined separately for each individual case. We advise having such networks configured by a specialist.

Features and applications
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN's wide range of features make it ideal for a large number of
applications, e.g.:
u Internet access
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN gives several users access to the Internet when a DSL or
cable modem is connected.
– As many DSL providers set up Internet access via the PPPoE protocol, the Gigaset
SE361 WLAN contains an integrated PPPoE Client, which means you no longer
need to set up this service on your PC yourself.
– Shared Internet access
If your Internet provider permits this, the Gigaset SE361 WLAN supports Internet
access for up to 252 users. In practice, multiple users in your network can surf the
Internet simultaneously using just one Internet access.
u Setting up a local network
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN permits connections
– for four devices via Ethernet ports with a transmission speed of 10 or 100 Mbps
(with automatic recognition).
– for up to 32 mobile terminals via a radio interface with a transmission speed of
up to 54 Mbps. It complies with the IEEE 802.11g standard and can work with all
products that satisfy the IEEE 802.11g or 802.11b standard.
Using a Gigaset SE361 WLAN makes it easy to set up a network at home or in small
offices. For example, users can exchange data or share resources in the network,
e.g. a file server or printer.
u Security functions
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN offers comprehensive security measures:
– Firewall protection against unauthorised access from the Internet
All PCs in the local area network use the Public IP address of the Gigaset SE361
WLAN for their Internet connections, which makes them 'invisible' on the Internet. The Gigaset SE361 WLAN only allows access from the Internet if this has
been requested from within the local area network.
With the firewall the Gigaset SE361 WLAN also offers comprehensive protection
against hacker attacks.
– Service filtering and URL filtering
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN can filter Internet access. Here you determine which
PCs may access which Internet services.
In addition, you can deactivate access to certain Internet domains and sites (URL
filtering).
– Access control and encryption for the local wireless network
You can use various encryption methods and authentication methods (WEP, WPA/
WPA2-PSK, MAC access control) to prevent unauthorised access to your wireless
LAN or make data illegible to unauthorised parties.

ì Click on Next > to proceed to the next step.
SSID
Before the wireless network components can communicate with each other, they must
all use the same SSID (Service Set Identifier).

reasons you should change this SSID and deactivate SSID broadcast.
If this option is enabled, the Gigaset SE361 WLAN will send the SSID in all data transmissions, and your Gigaset SE361 WLAN's SSID will be displayed on all PCs that have a wireless network adapter. In this case eavesdroppers could use the SSID to gain access to
your local network.
ì Enter a character string of your choice in the SSID field. The SSID is case sensitive. It
can be up to 32 alphanumerical characters long.
Make a note of the SSID. You will need it to log on your PC.

Setting security functions for the wireless network
In the next step you can set the encryption and authentication methods for your wireless network.
Wireless networks are even more strongly exposed to the risk of eavesdropping than
wired networks. With conventional network adapters an intruder only needs a device
with a WLAN adapter (e.g. a notebook or a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant)) with an
appropriately configured network card in order to eavesdrop on every communication
made via a nearby wireless LAN.
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN uses effective encryption methods to largely prevent eavesdropping.
You can use the following security mechanisms:
u WPA2-PSK or WPA2-PSK / WPA-PSK (see page 34)
u WEP encryption (Wired Equivalent Privacy, see page 35)
We recommend using WPA2-PSK if it is supported by all components in your wireless
network.
Note:
If WDS is enabled (see page 62) only WEP is available as encryption method.
You will find further options for setting data encryption in the Advanced Settings
menu (see page 58).
WPA2 / WPA with Pre-shared key (PSK)
WPA is a more advanced procedure than WEP for protecting wireless networks. Dynamic
keys based on TKIP (Temporal Key Integration Protocol) offer increased security. The
new WPA2 standard uses AES for encryption.
WPA-PSK is a special WPA mode for users at home and in small companies without a
company authentication server. Encryption keys are automatically generated with the
Pre-shared key, automatically changed ("rekeying") and authenticated between the
devices after a certain period of time (Rekey interval).
Note:
Every PC (network adapter) that requires access to a wireless network protected by
WPA must also support WPA. To find out whether and how you can use WPA on your
PC, read the user guide supplied with your network adapter.
ì Select the WPA2-PSK option if it is supported by all components in your wireless network.
or
ì Select WPA2-PSK / WPA-PSK if some or all components in your wireless network
support WPA with the TKIP protocol.

Security Setup Wizard
ì Enter a key of your choice in the Pre-shared key field (min. 8 to max. 63 characters)
and confirm it by repeating the entry.
Note:
u It is very important that you make a note of the Pre-shared key. You will need
this information to configure the wireless network adapters correctly.
u When you have completed the Security Setup Wizard you must also change
the encryption data on the wireless network adapters in the connected PCs
since, without the change, they will not be able to access the Gigaset SE361
WLAN's wireless network.
ì To go to the next step, click on Next >.
WEP encryption
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is an encryption procedure for radio signals in wireless
networks and complies with the IEEE 802.11 standard.
If you transmit data wirelessly and not all components in your wireless network support
the higher security standard WPA (see page 34), we recommend that you activate WEP
Encryption on these network components.
You can choose either the standard 64-bit keys or the more robust 128-bit keys for
encryption. The keys are generated in hexadecimal or in ASCII format. You must use the
same keys for encryption and decryption for the Gigaset SE361 WLAN and all your wireless networkadapters.

ì Select the Key length: 64 or 128-bit.
ì Select the Input type, i.e. whether you wish to enter the key manually or have it
generated automatically by means of a Passphrase.
Manual key entry
ì Select the Key type, Hex or ASCII.
.
If you select Hex as the key type, you can use the characters 0 to 9 and A to F.
– With a 64-bit encryption depth the key is exactly 10 characters long.
Example of a valid key: 1234567ABC
– With a 128-bit encryption depth the key is exactly 26 characters long.
Example of a valid key: 234567ABC8912345DEF1234567
If you select ASCII as the key type, you can use the characters 0 to 9, A to Z, and a
to z plus the special characters in the ASCII character set.
– With a 64-bit encryption depth the key is exactly 5 characters long.
Example of a valid key: GIGA1
– With a 128-bit encryption depth the key is exactly 13 characters long.
Example of a valid key: GIGASET_SE361
ì Confirm the key by entering it again in the field
Confirm key.

Note:
u It is very important that you make a note of the key or passphrase. You will
need this information to configure the wireless network adapters correctly.

Setting up the NAT function
Your Gigaset SE361 WLAN comes provided with the NAT (Network Address Translation)
function. With address translation, several users on your local network can access the
Internet via one or more public IP addresses. In the default setting, all local IP addresses
are mapped to your router's public IP address.
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 e-mails, the request for data from the Internet
comes from a PC on the local network and the router allows the data through. The
router opens exactly one port for the application. A port is an internal PC address
through which the data is exchanged between a server on the Internet and a client on
a PC in the local network. Communicating via a port follows the rules of a specific protocol (TCP or UDP).
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 on the Internet, require several links, i.e. several ports
so that the players 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. Initially, these applications will not work if Network Address Translation (NAT) is activated.
Using port forwarding (the forwarding of requests to specific ports) you make the router
forward requests from the Internet for a certain service, e.g a game, to the appropriate
port or ports on the PC on which the game is running.
Port triggering is a specific variant of port forwarding. Unlike port forwarding, in this
case the Gigaset SE361 WLAN forwards data from the set port block to the PC which has
previously sent data to the Internet via a certain port (trigger port). This means that permission for data transfer is not tied to one specific PC in your network, but only to the
port numbers of the required Internet service.
Where configuration is concerned, this means:
u You have to define a so-called trigger port for the application and also the protocol
(TCP or UDP) that this port uses. To this trigger port you then assign the public ports
that have to be opened for the application.
u The router checks all outgoing data for port number and protocol. If it recognises a
match of port and protocol to 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 routes
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.

Note:
u An application that is configured for port triggering can only be run by one user in
the local network at a time.
u As long as the public ports are open, they can be used by unauthorised persons to
gain access to a PC in the local network.
When the Gigaset SE361 WLAN is delivered, the NAT function (Network Address Translation) is activated, i.e. all IP addresses of PCs in the local network are mapped to the
router's public IP address when accessing the Internet.
You can use the NAT settings for the Gigaset SE361 WLAN to
u set up port triggering for special applications (see page 49),
u set up the Gigaset SE361 WLAN as a virtual server by configuring Port Forwarding
(see page 50),
u open the firewall for selected PCs (see page 51).
Note:
For the functions described below you must make sure that the IP addresses of the
PCs do not change. If the IP addresses of the PCs are assigned via the DHCP server of
the Gigaset SE361 WLAN, you must select the option Never expires for the settings

Port forwarding
If you configure port forwarding, the Gigaset SE361 WLAN outwardly assumes the role
of the server. It receives requests from remote users under its public IP address and
automatically redirects them to local PCs. The private IP addresses of the servers on the
local network remain protected.
Internet services are addressed via defined port numbers. The Gigaset SE361 WLAN
needs a mapping table of the port numbers to redirect the service requests to the server
that actually provides the service. For this, Port Forwarding has to be configured.
ì To set up port forwarding for a service, select Port Forwarding in the Address
Translation (NAT) menu.
ì Select the required application from the Predefined applications list.
ì Click on the Add button. The data for the required service is entered on the screen.
ì Select the option in the Enabled column.
If the application you require is not in the list, you must enter the relevant data on the
screen manually:
ì Select the protocol for the service you are providing from the Protocol list.
ì Under Public port, enter the port number of the service you are providing.
ì In the Local port field, enter the internal port number to which service requests are
to be forwarded.
ì In the Local IP address field, enter the IP address of the PC which provides the service.
Example: The Web server has been configured to react to requests on port 8080.
However, requests from websites enter by port 80 (default setting). If you add the
PC to the forwarding table and define port 80 as the public port and port 8080 as an
internal port, all requests from the Internet are diverted to the service with port
number 80 on the Web server of the PC you have defined with port 8080.

Opening the firewall for a selected PC (Exposed Host)
You can set up a client as an exposed host in your local network. Your device will then
forward all incoming data traffic from the Internet to this client. This will enable you, for
example, to operate your own Web server on one of the clients in your local network
and make it accessible to Internet users.
As an exposed host, your local client is directly visible on the Internet and therefore particularly exposed to risk (e.g. from hacker attacks). You should only activate this function where it is absolutely necessary (e.g. to operate a Web server) and where other
functions (e.g. port forwarding) are not adequate. In this case you should take appropriate measures on the clients concerned.
Note:
Only one PC per public IP address can be set up as Exposed Host (see also the section

Dynamic DNS
Any service you provide on the Internet can be accessed 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 may change. The assignment to the domain name will no longer
be 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 constantly updated. This is handled by the dynamic DNS service (DynDNS). You can
use the DynDNS service to assign your Gigaset SE361 WLAN 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 who offer a free DynDNS service. The Gigaset SE361 WLAN uses the DynDNS service from DynDNS.org and from TZO.org. If you
use this DynDNS provider's service, then your service can be reached on the Internet as
a subdomain of one of this provider's domains.
If you have activated the device's DynDNS function, it will monitor its public IP address.
When this changes, it sets up a connection to the Internet site and updates its IP address
there.
Note:
You will have to open an account with the provider before you can use the Gigaset
SE361 WLAN's DynDNS function. Follow the instructions on the provider's web site.
Enter the user data during configuration of the router.
ì To use the router's DynDNS function, select

Configuring the DHCP server
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN has a DHCP server, which is enabled on delivery. As a result,
the IP addresses of the PCs are automatically assigned by the Gigaset SE361 WLAN.
Note:
u If the Gigaset SE361 WLAN's DHCP server is activated, you can configure the network setting on the PC so that the option Obtain an IP address automatically is
set. To find out how to do this, please read the section entitled

u If you deactivate the DHCP server, you will have to assign a static IP address for the
PCs via the network settings.
ì To activate the DHCP server, select On.
ì If the DHCP server is active, you can define a Lease time. The Lease time determines
the period for which the PCs keep the IP addresses assigned to them without any
change.

SSID
For the wireless network components to communicate with each other, they must have
the same SSID (Service Set Identifier).
On delivery, the Gigaset SE361 WLAN's default SSID is ConnectionPoint. For security
reasons you should change this SSID and deactivate SSID broadcast (see below).
Enter a character string of your choice. The SSID is case sensitive. It can be up to
32 alphanumerical characters long.
Note:
The connection to the wireless network adapters will be interrupted until you enter
the new SSID on them as well.
Channel
All the clients in your network use the set radio channel for wireless data transfer. In the
case of potential interferences caused by other 2.4 GHz devices in the neighbourhood,
you can choose between various channels.
ì Select the channel to be used for transmitting the data.
SSID broadcast
If this option is enabled (default setting), the Gigaset SE361 WLAN will send the SSID
will be sent with all data transmissions, and your Gigaset SE361 WLAN's SSID will be displayed on PCs that have a wireless network adapter. In this case, eavesdroppers could
use the SSID to gain access to your local network.
If you disable SSID broadcast, your Gigaset SE361 WLAN's SSID will not be displayed.
This increases protection against unauthorised access to your wireless network. However, you must make a note of the SSID. You will need it to log on your PC.
ì Select the Off option to deactivate SSID broadcast.

Setting wireless security
If you send data over wireless channels, we recommend that you activate encryption
(WEP or WPA) on your wireless network components.
WPA is a more advanced procedure than WEP for protecting wireless networks. Dynamic
keys based on TKIP (Temporal Key Integration Protocol) offer increased security. The
new WPA2 standard is based on AES. We therefore recommend that you choose WPA2
or WPA encryption if it is supported by all components in your wireless network.
Note:
If WDS is enabled (see page 62) only WEP is available as encryption method.
ì In the Wireless Network menu, select Encryption.
The following security mechanisms are currently available:
u WPA2-PSK and WPA2-PSK / WPA-PSK (see page 58)
u WEP encryption (Wired Equivalent Privacy), (see page 59)
WPA2-PSK and WPA2-PSK / WPA-PSK
WPA with Pre-shared Key (WPA-PSK)
WPA-PSK is a special WPA mode that provides encryption protection for users at home
and in small companies without a company authentication server. Encryption keys are
automatically generated with the Pre-shared Key, and automatically changed (rekeying)
and authenticated between the devices after a certain period of time (Rekey interval).
Which standard of encryption you can choose depends on the components in your wireless network. Every PC (network adapter) that requires access to a wireless network protected by WPA must also support WPA. To find out whether and how you can use WPA
on your PC, read your network adapter's operating instructions. If all components support WPA2, select the WPA2-PSK option. If you are using network adapters that only
support WPA, select the WPA2-PSK / WPA-PSK option. The entries described below are
the same for both options.
ì Select the required option in the Security field.

access points’ wireless network and clients in its own radio coverage area. Repeaters and
access points form a common wireless network in which all clients can move about
freely. Clients automatically set up a connection to the next access point / repeater
(Roaming). You must determine for security purposes which access points / repeaters
are to form a common wireless network.

Security
On the Security screen in the Status menu you will see information about possible
security risks for your device and your network.
u System password not changed
Your device's configuration program is not effectively protected against unauthorised access as you have not changed the password since setup. The section entitled
"System Password" on page 66 describes how to avoid this security risk.
u Identification of your wireless network visible or not changed
Unauthorised users can also find your wireless network easily as you have not
changed the ID for your wireless network (SSID) since setup and have not deactivated SSID broadcast. The section entitled "Configuration for wireless connections"
on page 56 describes how to avoid this security risk.
u Encryption for your wireless network not activated
None of the data in your wireless network is encrypted when transmitted and can
therefore easily be intercepted. Unauthorised users can also easily access your network, your PCs and your Internet connection by this means. The section entitled
"Setting wireless security" on page 58 describes how to avoid this security risk.
u Firewall for your Internet connection turned off
Your network is not protected against hackers who gain unauthorised access via the
Internet. The section entitled "Firewall" on page 45 describes how to avoid this security risk.

Internet. The section entitled "Setting up the NAT function" on page 47 describes
how to avoid this security risk.
u One or more of your local clients directly exposed to the Internet
One or more clients in your network are directly visible to the Internet as exposed
hosts and therefore particularly exposed to risk (e.g. hacker attacks). You should
only activate this function where it is absolutely necessary (e.g. to operate a Web
server) and where other functions (e.g. port forwarding) are not adequate. In this
case you should take appropriate measures on the clients concerned. The section
entitled "Opening the firewall for a selected PC (Exposed Host)" on page 51
describes how to avoid this security risk.

In this section we assume that you will use the Gigaset SE361 WLAN's DHCP service. This
means that IP addresses are automatically assigned to the PCs (Dynamic IP addresses).
This is also the device's default setting.
In many cases, however, it is advisable to assign Static IP addresses, for example if you
wish to run a wireless network in Ad-hoc mode. How you configure dynamic address
assignment on the Gigaset SE361 WLAN is described in the section entitled "LAN configuration" on page 54.
If your network is already set up you can read on from "The user interface" on page 24.
The network configuration varies depending on the Windows operating system you are
using. You will find the description for Windows XP on and after page 76, and for Windows 2000 on and after page 84.
Have your Windows Installation CD to hand. You may be prompted to insert it.

Checking the connection to the Gigaset SE361 WLAN
Once the network has been set up on your PC, you can check whether the PC is correctly
connected to the Gigaset SE361 WLAN. This can be done as follows:
ì Open Command prompt. To do this, click on Start – Programs – Command
prompt.
ì Enter the command ping 192.168.2.1.
Note:
192.168.2.1 is the default IP address for the Gigaset SE361 WLAN. If the IP
address has been changed, enter the new IP address.
The ping command sends data packets to the Gigaset SE361 WLAN 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 correctly.
If the command does not return any statistics but ends with a time-out, this means that
the components cannot communicate with each other. Check the following points:
1. Is the Ethernet cable between the Gigaset SE361 WLAN and the PC correctly connected or is there a wireless connection via a wireless network adapter?
The LED for the LAN connections on the Gigaset SE361 WLAN and the link display
for the network card in your PC must light up. For wireless connections the Gigaset
WLAN Adapter Monitor must display connection information.
2. Is TCP/IP configured correctly on your PC?
If the Gigaset SE361 WLAN has the IP address 192.168.2.1, your PC's IP address must
be between 192.168.2.2 and 192.168.2.255. The default gateway must have the
address 192.168.2.1.
3. Does the IP address match the defined subnet mask?
As the Subnet mask for the Gigaset SE361 WLAN is set to 255.255.255.0 the PC’s IP
address may differ from the routers’ IP address only in the last address field.
If you can successfully address the Gigaset SE361 WLAN with the ping command, then
the PC has been configured correctly.

Access point
An access point such as the Gigaset SE361 WLAN is the central element in a wireless
local area network (WLAN). It handles connection of the wireless-linked network components and regulates data traffic in the wireless network. The access point also serves
as an interface to other networks, e.g. an existing Ethernet LAN or via a modem to the
Internet. The network mode for wireless networks with an access point is called
Infrastructure mode.
Ad-hoc mode
Ad-hoc mode describes wireless local networks (WLANs) 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 be equipped with a
wireless Network adapter.
Beacon
Beacons are data packets that are sent by devices in a wireless network to all other
devices to indicate that they are available and ready to receive. Beacons are also used to
synchronise the wireless network. A beacon interval is the period between two beacons
in milliseconds.
Bridge
A bridge connects several network segments to form a joint network, e.g. to build 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
makes it possible to build local networks of practically unlimited size.
See also: Switch, Hub, Router, Gateway
Broadcast
A broadcast is a data packet that is not directed to a particular recipient but to all the
components in a network. The Gigaset SE361 WLAN does not pass broadcast packets on
to the Internet; they always remain within the local area network (LAN) administered
by the Gigaset SE361 WLAN.
BSSID
Basic Service Set ID
The BSSID is used for unique differentiation between one wireless network (WLAN) and
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.
Connect on demand
Connect on demand means that applications such as a Web browser, Messenger and
E-mail automatically open an Internet connection when they are launched. This can
lead to high charges if you are not using a Flat rate. This function can be deactivated at
the Gigaset SE361 WLAN to save call charges.
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
DHCP handles the automatic assignment of IP addresses to network components. It was
developed due to the fact that in large networks – especially the Internet – defining IP
addresses is very complex as participants frequently move, drop out or new ones join.
A DHCP server automatically assigns the connected network components (DHCP Clients) Dynamic IP addresses from a defined IP pool range, thus saving a great deal of configuration work. In addition, it also allows address blocks 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 SE361 WLAN includes a DHCP server and can automatically assign IP
addresses to PCs in the local network. You can specify that the IP addresses for certain
PCs are never changed.
DHCP server
See DHCP
DMZ
Demilitarized Zone, see also Exposed Host
DMZ describes a part of a network that is outside the Firewall. A DMZ is set up, as it
were, between a network you want to protect (e.g. a LAN) and a non-secure network
(e.g. the Internet). A DMZ is useful if you want to offer Serverservices on the Internet
which, for security reasons, will not run behind the firewall, or if Internet applications
do not function correctly 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 computers or Domain names, which are
easier to remember. A DNS server must 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 is based on a hierarchical system. A local PC only knows the address of the local name server. This in turn
knows all the addresses of the PCs in the local network and the next higher name servers, which again know addresses and the next higher name servers.
DNS server
See DNS
Domain name
The domain name is the reference to one or more Web servers on the Internet, e.g.
siemens.com. The domain name is mapped to the respective IP address via the DNS
service.
DSL
Digital Subscriber Line
DSL is a data transmission technology in which a connection to the Internet can be run
over normal telephone lines. A DSL connection is supplied by an Internet Provider. It
requires a DSL modem.
Dynamic IP address
A dynamic IP address is assigned to a network component automatically by DHCP. This
means that the IP address of a network component can change with every login or at
certain intervals.
See also Static IP address
DTIM
Delivery Traffic Indication Message
A DTIM is a signal that is sent by an access point as part of a Beacon to a client device in
power-saving mode to indicate that a data packet is ready for delivery. The DTIM interval
defines the frequency with which a DTIM appears in a series of beacon packets.

DynDNS
Dynamic DNS
The assignment of Domain names and IP addresses is handled by the Domain Name
Service (DNS). This service is now enhanced with so-called Dynamic DNS (DynDNS) for
Dynamic IP addresses. This enables the use of a network component with a dynamic
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
SE361 WLAN offers WEP encryption and WPA encryption for secure data transmission
over wireless networks.

point) or they can connect with each other spontaneously (Ad-hoc mode).
IGMP
Internet Group Management Protocol
IGMP is an Internet Protocol that enables an Internet computer to inform neighbouring
routers that it is a member of a multicast group. With multicasting, a computer can send
content on the Internet to several other computers that have registered an interest in
the first computer's content. Multicasting can, for example, be used for multimedia programs for media streaming to recipients that have set up multicast group membership.
Infrastructure mode
Infrastructure mode is a way of operating wireless local networks (WLANs) 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 created for exchanging data, and these are
known collectively as TCP/IP stack. All participants on the Internet can be identified by
an IP address. Servers are addressed by Domain names (e.g. siemens.com). Domain
names are assigned to IP addresses by the Domain Name Service (DNS).
Among the most important Internet services are:
u electronic mail (email)
u the World Wide Web (WWW)
u file transfer (FTP)
u discussion forums (Usenet / Newsgroups)
Internet Provider
An Internet provider (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 addressing parties 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 for a network component in a network
based on the TCP/IP protocol (e.g. in a local area network (LAN) or on the Internet). The
IP address has four parts (values from 0 to 255) separated by periods (e.g. 192.168.1.1).
The IP address consists of the network address and the PC address. Depending on the
Subnet mask, one part of the IP address (mostly one, two or three parts) form the network address, the remainder the PC address. You can find out the IP address of your PC
by entering ipconfig in the command prompt.
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 IP addresses. DNS is
responsible for assigning domain names to IP addresses.
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN has a Private IP address and a Public IP address.
IP pool range
The Gigaset SE361 WLAN's IP address pool defines a range of IP addresses that the
router's DHCP server can use to assign Dynamic IP addresses.

LAN
Local Area Network
A local area network (or 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 SE361 WLAN you can set up a wired local Ethernet network and a wireless IEEE 802.11g standard network (WLAN).
Lease time
The lease time defines the period for which PCs keep the Dynamic IP address assigned
to them by the DHCP server without changing it.
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's manufacturer and should not be changed.

NAT
Network Address Translation
NAT is a method for converting IP addresses (Private IP addresses) within a network into
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 on the local network are hidden behind the router's IP address, which is
registered on the Internet. Because of this security function, NAT is frequently used as
part of a 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 SE361 WLAN 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 data and peripherals. A general distinction is made between
local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs).
Network adapter
A network adapter is the hardware device that creates the connection between a network component and a local network. The connection can be wired or wireless. An Ethernet network card is an example of a wired network adapter. The Gigaset PC Card 300
and the Gigaset USB Adapter 300 are examples of wireless network adapters.
A network adapter has a unique address, the MAC address.
Port
Data is exchanged between two applications in a network across a port. The port
number addresses an application within a network component. The combination of 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 whenever they need one.
Port Forwarding
In port forwarding the Gigaset SE361 WLAN 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 within the local area network to offer services on the
Internet without them needing a Public IP address.

PPPoE
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet
PPPoE is a Protocol that connects network components in a local Ethernet network to
the Internet via a modem.
Private IP address
The private IP address (also known as the local IP address) is a network component's
address within 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
SE361 WLAN, have a private and a Public IP address.
Protocol
A protocol describes the agreements for communicating in a network. It contains rules
for opening, managing and closing a connection, as well as about data formats, time
frames and how to handle potential errors. Communication between two applications
requires different protocols at different levels, e.g. the TCP/IP protocols on the Internet.
Public IP address
The public IP address (also known as global IP address) is a network component's
address on the Internet. It is assigned by the Internet Provider. Devices that create a link
from a LAN to the Internet, such as the Gigaset SE361 WLAN, have a public and a Private
IP address.
Radio network
See WLAN
Rekey interval
The rekey interval is the period after which new keys are automatically generated for
data encryption with WPA-PSK.
Remote management
Remote management refers to the ability to manage a network from a network component that is actually outside the local area network (LAN).
Repeater
A repeater extends the range of a wireless local area network by relaying data from the
Access point to additional PCs or Network adapter.
Roaming
Roaming extends the range of a wireless LAN by using several Access points with the
same SSID and the same radio channel and linked via Ethernet. The PCs in the network
can switch dynamically between several access points without losing the existing network connection.

Server
A server makes a service available to other network components (Clients). The term
"server" is often used to refer to a computer or PC. However, it can also mean an application that provides a particular service such as DNS or a 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 Provider gives you access to an SMTP server.
SNMP
Simple Network Management Protocol
The SNMP Protocol is part of the TCP/IP protocol family. It provides a simple procedure
for network administration based on a system of shared information for management
data and network management messages (known as traps), and reports the occurrence
of events within the monitored network (e.g. an alarm message or notification of configuration changes).
SSID
Service Set Identifier
The SSID is used to identify the stations in a wireless network (WLAN). All wireless network components 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
A subnet divides a network into smaller units.
Subnet mask
The subnet mask determines how many parts of a network's IP address represent the
network address and how many parts represent the PC address.
The subnet mask in a network administered by the Gigaset SE361 WLAN is always
255.255.255.0. This means that the first three parts of the IP address form the network
address and only the final part is used for the PC address. In this case, the first three
parts of the IP address of all network components are therefore always the same.

TKIP
The Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) is part of the IEEE 802.11i standard and is
used to encrypt data in wireless networks.
UDP
User Datagram Protocol
UDP is a Protocol from the TCP/IP protocol family, which handles data transport between
two communication partners (applications). Unlike TCP, UDP is a non-session based protocol. It does not establish a static connection. The data packets, so-called datagrams,
are sent as a Broadcast. The recipient alone is responsible for making sure the data is
received. The sender is not notified about whether or not it is received.
UPnP
Universal Plug & Play
UPnP technology is used to spontaneously link home or small office networks. Devices
that support UPnP carry out their network configuration automatically once they are
connected to a network. They also provide their own services or use services of other
devices on the network automatically.

WLAN
Wireless LAN
Wireless LANs enable network components to communicate with a network using radio
waves as the transport medium. A wireless LAN can be connected as an extension to an
existing wired LAN or it can form the basis for a new network. The basic element of a
wireless network is the radio cell. This is the area in which wireless communication takes
place. A WLAN can be operated in Ad-hoc mode or Infrastructure mode.
WLAN is currently specified in the IEEE 802.11 standard. The Gigaset SE361 WLAN complies with standard 802.11g.
WPA
WPA was developed to improve the security provided by WEP. WPA uses more complex
procedures to generate keys, e.g. TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol). In addition,
WPA can use an authentication server (e.g. a RADIUS server) to improve security.
WPA-PSK
WPA Pre-shared Key
Variant of WPA data encryption in which new keys are generated automatically at regular intervals by means of a keyword (Pre-shared Key). The key is updated at defined
intervals (Rekey interval).
