Connecting your Router
Positioning your Router
Your wireless connection will be stronger the closer your computer
is to your Router. Typical indoor operating range for your wireless
devices is between 100 and 200 feet. In the same way, your wireless
connection and performance will degrade somewhat as the distance
between your Router connected devices increases. This may or may
not be noticeable to you. As you move farther from your Router,
connection speed may decrease. Factors that can weaken signals
simply by getting in the way of your network’s radio waves are metal
appliances, or obstructions, and walls. Please see “Appendix B:
Important Factors for Placement and Setup” in this User Manual for
more guidelines.
If you have concerns about your network’s performance that might be
related to range or obstruction factors, try moving the computer to
a position between five and 10 feet from the Router, in order to see
if distance is the problem. If difficulties persist even at close range,
please see the Troubleshooting section for solutions.

Connecting your Router
Connecting your ADSL Line
Connection for the Router to the ADSL line varies by country and
region. Typically it involves a microfilter or a microfilter with builtin splitter to allow simultaneous use of ADSL service and telephone
service on the same telephone line. Please read the following steps
carefully and select appropriate method.
1.
If your telephone service and ADSL service are on the same
telephone line, ADSL microfilters are needed for each telephone
and device, such as answering machine, fax machine, and caller
ID display. Additional splitters may be used to separate telephone
lines for telephone and the Router.
Note: Do not connect the ADSL microfilter between the wall jack
and the Router—this will prevent ADSL service from reaching
the modem.
2.
If your telephone service and ADSL service are on the same
telephone line and you are using an ADSL microfilter with built-in
splitter, connect the splitter to the telephone wall jack providing
ADSL service. Then, connect the telephone cord from the ADSL
microfilter RJ11 port generally labeled “DSL” to the gray RJ11
port labeled “DSL line” on the back of your Router. Connect
telephony device to the other port on the ADSL splitter commonly
labeled “Phone”. An additional ADSL microfilter is needed for
another telephone and device on the same line.

RJ11 port labeled “DSL line” on the back of your Router.
Note: ADSL microfilter may or may not be provided depending on
your country.

After connecting the power adapter and the power source is turned on,
the Router’s power icon.
on the front panel should be on. It might
take a few minutes for the Router to fully start up.
3.
Turn on your computers. After your computers boot up, the LAN
status LED
on the front of the Router will be on for each port
to which a wired computer is connected. These lights show
you the connection and activity status. Now you are ready to
configure the Router for ADSL connection.

IP. Examples of a non-routable IP are:
192.168.x.x (where x is anything between 0 and 255)
10.x.x.x (where x is anything between 0 and 255)
2.
Subnet Mask
There is no need to change the subnet mask as the router will
automatically adjust the length based on the IP address type.
3.
DHCP Server
The DHCP server function makes setting up a network very easy
by assigning IP addresses to each computer on the network
automatically. The default setting is “On”. The DHCP server can
be turned OFF if necessary, however, in order to do so you must
manually set a static IP address for each computer on your network.
To turn off the DHCP server, select “Off” and click “Apply Changes”.
4.
IP Pool
The IP Pool is the range of IP addresses set aside for dynamic
assignment to the computers on your network. The default is
26
Manually Configuring your Router
2–100 (99 computers). If you want to change this number, you
can do so by entering a new starting and ending IP address and
clicking on “Apply Changes”. The DHCP server can assign 100 IP
addresses automatically. This means that you cannot specify an
IP address pool larger than 100 computers. For example, starting
at 50 means you have to end at 150 or lower so as not to exceed
the 100-client limit. The starting IP address must be lower in
number than the ending IP address.

Local Domain Name
The default setting is “Belkin”. You can set a local domain name

Lease time is the length of time the DHCP server will reserve
the IP address for each computer. We recommend that you
leave the lease time set to “Forever”. The default setting is
“Forever”, meaning that any time a computer is assigned an IP
address by the DHCP server, the IP address will not change
for that particular computer. Setting lease times for shorter
intervals, such as one day or one hour, frees IP addresses after
the specified period of time. This also means that a particular
computer’s IP address may change over time. If you have set any
of the other advanced features of the Router, such as DMZ or
client IP filters, these are dependent on the IP address. For this
reason, you will not want the IP address to change.

Using Dynamic DNS
The Dynamic DNS service allows you to alias a dynamic IP address
to a static host name in any of the many domains DynDNS.org offers,
allowing your network computers to be more easily accessed from
various locations on the Internet. DynDNS.org provides this service,
for up to five host names, free to the Internet community.
The Dynamic DNSSM service is ideal for a home website, file
server, or to make it easy to access your home PC and stored files
while you’re at work. Using the service can ensure that your host
name always points to your IP address, no matter how often your
ISP changes it. When your IP address changes, your friends and
associates can always locate you by visiting yourname.dyndns.org
instead!
To register free for your Dynamic DNS host name, please visit
http://www.dyndns.org.

1. Changing the Wireless Channel
There are a number of operating channels you can choose from. In the United
States, there are 11 channels. In the United Kingdom and most of Europe, there
are 13 channels. In a small number of other countries, there are other channel
requirements. Your Router is configured to operate on the proper channels for
the country you reside in. The default channel is 11 (unless you are in a country
that does not allow channel 11). The channel can be changed if needed. If there
are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network should be set to
operate on a channel that is different than the other wireless networks. For best
performance, use a channel that is at least five channels away from the other
wireless networks. For instance, if another network is operating on channel 11, then
set your network to channel 6 or below. To change the channel, select the channel
from the drop-down list. Click “Apply Changes”. The change is immediate.
2. Changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID)
To identify your wireless network, a name called the SSID (Service Set Identifier)
is used. The default SSID of the Router is “belkin54g”. You can change this to
anything you want to or you can leave it unchanged. If there are other wireless
networks operating in your area, you will want to make sure that your SSID is
unique (does not match that of another wireless network in the area). To change
the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the SSID field (1) and click
“Apply Changes” (2). The change is immediate. If you make a change to the
SSID, your wireless-equipped computers may also need to be reconfigured to
connect to your new network name. Refer to the documentation of your wireless
network adapter for information on making this change.

For security purposes, you can choose not to broadcast your network’s SSID.
Doing so will keep your network name hidden from computers that are scanning
for the presence of wireless networks. To turn off the broadcast of the SSID,
remove the tick from the tick box next to the option, Broadcast SSID. The change
is immediate. Each computer now needs to be set to connect to your specific
SSID; an SSID of “ANY” will no longer be accepted. Refer to the documentation
of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change.
Note: This advanced feature should be employed by advanced users only.
4. Using the Wireless Mode Switch
Your router can operate in either two different wireless modes:
• 802.11b & 802.11g- Choose this option if you plan to have wireless clients
of both 802.11b and 802.11g connect to your network.
• 802.11g - Use this mode if there are no 802.11b clients in the network.
This option gives the best performance but will not allow 802.11b clients to
connect.
5. Protected Mode Switch
As part of the 802.11g specification, Protected mode ensures proper
operation of 802.11g clients and access points when there is heavy
802.11b traffic in the operating environment. When Protected mode
is ON, 802.11g scans for other wireless network traffic before it
transmits data. Therefore, using this mode in environments with
HEAVY 802.11b traffic or interference achieves best performance
results. If you are in an environment with very little—or no—wireless
network traffic, your best performance will be achieved with Protected
mode OFF.

WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
WEP is a common protocol that adds security to all Wi-Fi-compliant
wireless products. WEP was designed to give wireless networks the
equivalent level of privacy protection as a comparable wired network.
64-Bit WEP
64-bit WEP was first introduced with 64-bit encryption, which
includes a key length of 40 bits plus 24 additional bits of systemgenerated data (64 bits total). Some hardware manufacturers refer
to 64-bit as 40-bit encryption. Shortly after the technology was
introduced, researchers found that 64-bit encryption was too easy to
decode.
37
section
9
Manually Configuring your Router
128-Bit WEP
As a result of 64-bit WEP’s potential security weaknesses, 128Bit
WEP was developed as a more secure method of encryption. 128-bit
encryption includes a key length of 104 bits plus 24 additional bits of
system-generated data (128 bits total). Some hardware manufacturers
refer to 128-bit as 104-bit encryption.
Most of the new wireless equipment in the market today supports
both 64-bit and 128-bit WEP encryption, but you might have older
equipment that only supports 64-bit WEP. All Belkin wireless products
will support both 64-bit and 128-bit WEP.
Encryption Keys
After selecting either the “64-bit” or “128-bit WEP” encryption mode,
it is critical that you generate an encryption key. If the encryption key
is not consistent throughout the entire wireless network, your wireless
networking devices will be unable to communicate with one another
on your network and you will not be able to successfully communicate
within your network.
You can enter your key by typing in the hex key manually, or you can
type in a passphrase in the “Passphrase” field and click “Generate”
to create a key. A hex (hexadecimal) key is a mixture of numbers and
letters from A–F and 0–9. For 64-bit WEP, you need to enter 10 hex
characters. For 128-bit WEP, you need to enter 26 hex characters.
The WEP passphrase is NOT the same as a WEP key. Your wireless
card uses this passphrase to generate your WEP keys, but different
hardware manufacturers might have different methods for generating
the keys. If you have equipment from multiple vendors in your
network, you can use the hex WEP key from your Router or access
point and enter it manually into the hex WEP key table in your
wireless card’s configuration screen.
Using a Hexadecimal Key
A hexadecimal key is a mixture of numbers and letters from A–F and
0–9. 64-bit keys are five two-digit numbers. 128-bit keys are 13 twodigit Characters.
For instance:
AF 0F 4B C3 D4 = 64-bit key
C3 03 0F AF 0F 4B B2 C3 D4 4B C3 D4 E7 = 128-bit key
In the boxes below, make up your key by writing in two characters
38
Manually Configuring your Router
between A–F and 0–9 in each box. You will use this key to program the
encryption settings on your Router and your wireless computers.
Note to Mac users: Original Apple AirPort® products support 64-bit
encryption only. Apple AirPort 2 products can support 64-bit or 128bit encryption. Please check your product to see which version you are
using. If you cannot configure your network with 128-bit encryption, try
64-bit encryption.
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access)
WPA-Personal (PSK)
This method uses what is known as a Pre-Shared key as the Network
key. A Network key is basically a password that is between eight and
63 characters long. It can be a combination of letters, numbers, or
characters. Each client uses the same Network key to access the network.
Typically, this is the mode that will be used in a home environment.
WPA-Enterprise (RADIUS)
With this system, a radius server distributes the Network key to the clients
automatically. This is typically found in a business environment. For a list
of Belkin wireless products that support WPA, please visit our website at
www.belkin.com/networking.
WPA2 (WiFi Protected Access)
WPA2 is the second generation of WPA based 802.11i standard. It
offers higher level of wireless security by combining advanced network
authentication and stronger AES encryption method. Like WPA security,
WPA2 is available in both WPA2-Personal (PSK) mode and WPA2Enterprise (RADIUS) mode. Typically, WPA2-Personal (PSK) is the mode
that will be used in a home environment, while WPA-Enterprise (RADIUS)
is implemented in a business environment where an external radius server
distributes the network key to the clients automatically.

WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is a new Wi-Fi standard that was designed
to improve upon the security features of WEP. To use WPA security,
the drivers and software of your wireless equipment must be upgraded

websites. There are two types of WPA security: WPA-Personal (PSK) and
WPA-Enterprise (RADIUS).

WARNING: If you are configuring the Wireless Router or access point
from a computer with a wireless client, you will lose your connection
until you enable security on your wireless client. Please be sure to
write down your key before applying changes.
WPA Setup
Note: To use WPA security, all your clients must be upgraded to drivers
and software that support it. At the time of this User Manual’s publication,
a security patch download is available free from Microsoft. This patch
works only with the Windows XP operating system. You also need to
download the latest driver for your Belkin Wireless G Desktop or Notebook
Network Card from the Belkin support site. Other operating systems are
not supported at this time. Microsoft’s patch only supports devices with
WPA-enabled drivers such as Belkin 802.11g products.

Manually Configuring your Router
There are two types of WPA security: WPA-Personal (PSK) and WPAEnterprise (RADIUS). WPA-Personal (PSK) uses a so-called Pre-Shared key
as the security key. A Pre-Shared key is a password that is between eight
and 63 characters long. It can be a combination of letters, numbers, and
other characters. Each client uses the same key to access the network.
Typically, this mode will be used in a home environment.
WPA-Enterprise (RADIUS) is a configuration wherein a radius server
distributes the keys to the clients automatically. This is typically used
in a business environment.
Setting WPA-Personal (PSK)
1. From the “Security Mode” drop-down menu, select “WPA/WPA2-PSK.
3. For Encryption Technique, select “TKIP”. This setting will have to be
identical on the clients that you set up.
4. Enter your Pre-Shared key. This can be from eight to 63 characters
and can be letters, numbers, or symbols. This same key must be used
on all of the clients that you set up. For example, your PSK might be
something like: “Smith family network key”.

Firewall
Your Router is equipped with a firewall that will protect your network
from a wide array of common hacker attacks including:
•
IP Spoofing
•
SYN flood
•
Land Attack
•
UDP flooding
•
Ping of Death (PoD)
•
Tear Drop Attack
•
Denial of Service (DoS)
•
ICMP defect
•
IP with zero length
•
RIP defect
•
Smurf Attack
•
Fragment flooding
•
TCP Null Scan
The firewall also masks common ports that are frequently used to
attack networks. These ports appear to be “Stealth”, meaning that
essentially they do not exist to a would-be hacker. You can turn the
firewall function off if needed; however, it is recommended that you
leave the firewall enabled. Disabling the firewall protection will not
leave your network completely vulnerable to hacker attacks, but it is
recommended that you leave the firewall enabled.

Virtual Servers
Virtual servers allow you to route external (Internet) calls for services such
as a web server (port 80), FTP server (Port 21), or other applications,
through your Router to your internal network. Since your internal
computers are protected by a firewall, machines from the Internet cannot
get to them because they cannot be “seen”. If you need to configure the
virtual server function for a specific application, you will need to contact
the application vendor to find out which port settings you need. You can
manually input this port information into the Router.

drop-down box (4). Click “Apply Changes”. The computer at the IP
address you specified will now be blocked from Internet access.
MAC Address Filtering
The MAC address filter is a powerful security feature that allows you
to specify which computers are allowed on the network. Any computer
attempting to access the network that is not specified in the filter list
will be denied access. When you enable this feature, you must enter a
name for the user and the MAC address of each client on your network
to allow network access. Next, click “Add” to save the settings.

Computer hackers use what is known as “pinging” to find potential
victims on the Internet. By pinging a specific IP address and
receiving a response from the IP address, a hacker can determine
that something of interest might be there. The Router can be set
up so it will not respond to an ICMP ping from the outside. This
heightens the level of security of your Router.
To turn off the ping response, select “Block ICMP Ping” (1) and click

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SET THE ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD.
Remote management allows you to make changes to your Router’s
settings from anywhere on the Internet.
Click on the “Change Settings” button to bring up the “Remote
Management” page.
There are two methods of remotely managing the Router. The first
is to allow access to the Router from anywhere on the Internet by
selecting “Any IP address can remotely manage the Router”. By
typing in your WAN IP address from any computer on the Internet,
you will be presented with a login screen where you need to type in
the password of your Router.
The second method is to allow a specific IP address only to remotely
manage the Router. This is more secure, but less convenient. To use
this method, enter the IP address you know you will be accessing the
Router from in the space provided and select “Only this IP address
can remotely manage the Router”. Before you enable this function,
it is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you set your administrator
password. Leaving the password empty will potentially open your

UPnP (Universal Plug-and-Play) is yet another advanced feature
offered by your Belkin Router. It is a technology that offers seamless
operation of voice messaging, video messaging, games, and other
applications that are UPnP-compliant. Some applications require
the Router’s firewall to be configured in a specific way to operate
properly. This usually requires opening TCP and UDP ports, and in
some instances, setting trigger ports. An application that is UPnPcompliant has the ability to communicate with the Router, basically
“telling” the Router which way it needs the firewall configured. The
Router ships with the UPnP feature disabled. If you are using any
applications that are UPnP-compliant, and wish to take advantage of
the UPnP features, you can enable the UPnP feature.

Problem:
My wireless network performance is inconsistent.
Signal strength is poor.
Difficulty establishing and/or maintaining a Virtual Private Network
(VPN) connection.
Solution:
Wireless technology is radio-based, which means connectivity and
the throughput performance between devices decreases when
the distance between devices increases. Other factors that will
cause signal degradation (metal is generally the worst culprit) are
obstructions such as walls and metal appliances. As a result, the
typical indoor range of your wireless devices will be between 100
to 200 feet. Note also that connection speed may decrease as you
move farther from the Router or access point.
In order to determine if wireless issues are related to range, we
suggest temporarily moving the computer, if possible, five to 10 feet
from the Router.
Changing the wireless channel - Depending on local wireless
traffic and interference, switching the wireless channel of your
network can improve performance and reliability. The default
channel the Router is shipped with is channel 11, you may choose
from several other channels depending on your region; see the
section entitled “Changing the Wireless Channel” on page 37 for
instructions on how to choose other channels.

Troubleshooting
Limiting the wireless transmit rate - Limiting the wireless transmit
rate can help improve the maximum wireless range, and connection
stability. Most wireless cards have the ability to limit the transmission
rate. To change this property, go to the Windows Control Panel,
open “Network Connections” and double-click on your wireless
card’s connection. In the “Properties” dialog, select the “Configure”
button on the “General” tab (Windows 98 users will have to select the
wireless card in the list box and then click “Properties”), then choose
the “Advanced” tab and select the rate property. Wireless client cards
are usually set to automatically adjust the wireless transmit rate for
you, but doing so can cause periodic disconnects when the wireless
signal is too weak; as a rule, slower transmission rates are more
stable. Experiment with different connection rates until you find the
best one for your environment; note that all available transmission
rates should be acceptable for browsing the Internet. For more
assistance, see your wireless card’s user manual.

What is the difference between 802.11b, 802.11g, G+
MIMO, and Pre-N?
Currently there are four levels of wireless networking standards, which
transmit data at very different maximum speeds. Each is based on
the designation 802.11(x), so named by the IEEE, the board that is
responsible for certifying networking standards. The most common
wireless networking standard, 802.11b, transmits information at 11Mbps;
802.11a and 802.11g work at 54Mbps; G+ MIMO works at 54Mbps; and
Pre-N works at 108Mbps.

IP Address
The “IP address” is the internal IP address of the Router. To access
the advanced setup interface, type this IP address into the address
bar of your browser. This address can be changed if needed. To
change the IP address, type in the new IP address and click “Apply
Changes”. The IP address you choose should be a non-routable IP.
Examples of a non-routable IP are:
192.168.x.x (where x is anything between 0 and 255)
10.x.x.x (where x is anything between 0 and 255)
Subnet Mask
Some networks are far too large to allow all traffic to flood all its parts.
These networks must be broken down into smaller, more manageable
sections, called subnets. The subnet mask is the network address plus
the information reserved for identifying the “subnetwork”.

DNS is an acronym for Domain Name Server. A Domain Name Server
is a server located on the Internet that translates URLs (Universal
Resource Links) like www.belkin.com to IP addresses. Many ISPs
do not require you to enter this information into the Router. If you
are using a static IP connection type, then you may need to enter
a specific DNS address and secondary DNS address for your
connection to work properly. If your connection type is Dynamic or
PPPoE, it is likely that you do not have to enter a DNS address.
PPPoE
Most ADSL providers use PPPoE as the connection type. If you use
an ADSL modem to connect to the Internet, your ISP may use PPPoE
to log you into the service.
Your connection type is PPPoE if:
1.
Your ISP gave you a user name and password which is required
to connect to the Internet.
2.
Your ISP gave you software such as WinPoET or Enternet300 that
you use to connect to the Internet.

Disconnect after X...
This feature is used to automatically disconnect the Router from
your ISP when there is no activity for a specified period of time. For
instance, placing a check mark next to this option and entering “5”
into the minute field will cause the Router to disconnect from the
Internet after five minutes of no Internet activity. This option should
be used if you pay for your Internet service by the minute.
Channel and SSID
To change the channel of operation of the Router, select the desired
channel from the drop-down menu and select your channel. Click
“Apply Changes” to save the setting. You can also change the SSID.
The SSID is the equivalent to the wireless network’s name. You
can make the SSID anything you want to. If there are other wireless
networks in your area, you should give your wireless network a unique
name. Click inside of the SSID box and type in a new name. Click
“Apply Changes” to make the change.

ESSID Broadcast
Many wireless network adapters currently on the market possess a feature
known as site survey. It scans the air for any available network and
allows each computer to automatically select a network from the survey.
This occurs if the computer’s SSID is set to “ANY”. Your Belkin Router
can block this random search for a network. If you disable the “ESSID
Broadcast” feature, the only way a computer can join your network is by
its SSID being set to the specific name of the network (like WLAN). Be sure
that you know your SSID (network name) before enabling this feature. It
is possible to make your wireless network nearly invisible. By turning off
the broadcast of the SSID, your network will not appear in a site survey.
Obviously, turning off the broadcast feature of the SSID helps increase
security.

Virtual Servers
This function will allow you to route external (Internet) calls for services
such as a web server (port 80), FTP server (Port 21), or other applications
through your Router to your internal network. Since your internal computers
are protected by a firewall, machines from the Internet cannot get to them
because they cannot be “seen”. If you need to configure the virtual server
function for a specific application, you will need to contact the application
vendor to find out which port settings you need.
To manually enter settings, enter the IP address in the space provided for
the internal machine, the port type (TCP or UDP), and the LAN and public
port(s) required to pass. Then select “Enable” and click “Set”. You can
only pass one port per internal IP address. Opening ports in your firewall
can pose a security risk. You can enable and disable settings very quickly.
It is recommended that you disable the settings when you are not using a
specific application.

Setting encryption can help keep your network secure. The Router
uses Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and WIFI protested Access
(WPA) encrytion to protect to protect your data and features two
rates of encryption: 64-bit and 128-bit. Encryption works on a system
of keys. The key on the computer must match the key on the Router,
and there are two ways to make a key. The easiest is to let the
Router’s software convert a passphrase you’ve created into a key.
The advanced method is to enter the keys manually.
Appendixes
Client IP Filters
The Router can be configured to restrict access to the Internet,
email, or other network services at specific days and times.
Restriction can be set for a single computer, a range of computers,
or multiple computers.
MAC Address Filtering
The MAC address filter is a powerful security feature that allows
you to specify which computers are allowed on the network. Any
computer attempting to access the network that is not specified in
the filter list will be denied access. When you enable this feature,
you must enter the MAC address of each client on your network to
allow network access to each or copy the MAC address by selecting
the name of the computer from the “DHCP Client List”. To enable
this feature, select “Enable”. Next, click “Apply Changes” to save the
settings.
DMZ
If you have a client PC that cannot run an Internet application
properly from behind the firewall, you can open the client up to
unrestricted two-way Internet access. This may be necessary if the
NAT feature is causing problems with an application such as a game
or video conferencing application. Use this feature on a temporary
basis. The computer in the DMZ is not protected from hacker
attacks. To put a computer in the DMZ, enter the last digits of its
LAN IP address in the “Static IP” field and click “Apply Changes” for
the change to take effect.
If you have only one public (WAN) IP address, then you can leave
the public IP to “0.0.0.0”. If you are using multiple public (WAN) IP
addresses, it is possible to select which public (WAN) IP address the
DMZ host will be directed to. Type in the public (WAN) IP address
you wish the DMZ host to direct to, enter the last two digits of the IP
address of the DMZ host computer, and click “Apply Changes”.

Administrator Password
The Router ships with NO password entered. If you wish to add
a password for more security, you can set a password from your
Router’s web-based user interface. Keep your password in a safe
place as you will need this password if you need to log into the
Router in the future. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you set
a password if you plan to use the remote management feature. The
login time-out option allows you to set the period of time that you can
be logged into the Router’s advanced setup interface. The timer starts
when there has been no activity. For example, you have made some
changes in the advanced setup interface, then left your computer
alone without clicking “Logout”.
Assuming the time-out is set to 10 minutes, then 10 minutes after
you leave, the login session will expire. You will have to log into the
Router again to make any more changes. The login time-out option
is for security purposes and the default is set to 10 minutes. Note,
only one computer can be logged into the Router’s advanced setup
interface at a time.

UPnP
UPnP (Universal Plug-and-Play) is a technology that offers seamless
operation of voice messaging, video messaging, games, and other
applications that are UPnP-compliant. Some applications require
the Router’s firewall to be configured in a specific way to operate
properly. This usually requires opening TCP and UDP ports and in
some instances setting trigger ports. An application that is
UPnP-compliant has the ability to communicate with the Router,
basically “telling” the Router which way it needs the firewall
configured. The Router ships with the UPnP feature disabled. If
you are using any applications that are UPnP-compliant, and wish
to take advantage of the UPnP features, you can enable the UPnP
feature. Simply select “Enable” in the “UPnP Enabling” section of the

Appendix B: Important Factors for Placement and Setup
Note: While some of the items listed below can affect network
performance, they will not prohibit your wireless network from
functioning; if you are concerned that your network is not operating
at its maximum effectiveness, this checklist may help.
1.
Wireless Router (or Access Point) Placement
Place your Wireless Router (or access point), the central
connection point of your network, as close as possible to the
center of your wireless network devices.
To achieve the best wireless network coverage for your “wireless
clients” (i.e., computers enabled by Belkin Wireless Notebook
Network Cards, Wireless Desktop Network Cards, and Wireless
USB Adapters):
• Ensure that your Wireless Router’s (or access point’s)
networking antennas are parallel to each other, and are
positioned vertically (toward the ceiling). If your Wireless
Router (or access point) itself is positioned vertically, point the
antennas a much as possible in an upward direction.
• Try not to place the Wireless Router (or access point) near a
cordless 2.4GHz phone.
2.
Avoid Obstacles and Interference
Avoid placing your Wireless Router (or access point) near devices
that may emit radio “noise,” such as microwave ovens. Dense
objects that can inhibit wireless communication include:
• Refrigerators
• Washers and/or dryers
• Metal cabinets
• Large aquariums
• Metallic-based UV tinted windows

• In multistory homes, place the Wireless Router (or access
point) on a floor that is as close to the center of the home
as possible. This may mean placing the Wireless Router (or
access point) on an upper floor.
1
Appendixes
If your wireless signal seems weak in some spots, make sure that
objects such as these are not blocking the signal’s path (between
your computers and Wireless Router or access point).
3.
Cordless Phones
If the performance of your wireless network is impaired after
attending to the above issues, and you have a cordless phone:
• Try moving cordless phones away from Wireless Routers (or
access points) and your wireless-enabled computers.
• Unplug and remove the battery from any cordless phone
that operates on the 2.4GHz band (check manufacturer’s
information). If this fixes the problem, your phone may be
interfering.
• If your phone supports channel selection, change the channel
on the phone to the farthest channel from your wireless
network. For example, change the phone to channel 1 and
move your Wireless Router (or access point) to channel 11.
See your phone’s user manual for detailed instructions.
• If necessary, consider switching to a 900MHz or 5GHz
cordless phone.

Choose the “Quietest” Channel for your Wireless Network
In locations where homes or offices are close together, such as
apartment buildings or office complexes, there may be wireless
networks nearby that can conflict with yours.
Use the Site Survey capabilities found in the Wireless LAN Utility
of your wireless adapter to locate any other wireless networks
that are available (see your wireless adapter’s manual), and
move your Wireless Router (or access point) and computers to a
channel as far away from other networks as possible.
Experiment with more than one of the available channels, in
order to find the clearest connection and avoid interference from
neighboring cordless phones or other wireless devices.
For Belkin wireless networking products, use the detailed Site
Survey and wireless channel information included in your User
Manual.

These guidelines should allow you to cover the maximum
possible area with your Wireless Router (or access point). Should
you need to cover an even wider area, we suggest the Belkin
Wireless Range Extender/Access Point.
5. Secure Connections, VPNs, and AOL
1
2
3
Secure connections typically require a user name and password, and
are used where security is important. Secure connections include:
4
• Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections, often used to
connect remotely to an office network
5
• The “Bring Your Own Access” program from America Online
(AOL), which lets you use AOL through broadband provided by
another cable or DSL service
6
• Most online banking websites
• Many commercial websites that require a user name and
password to access your account
A second alternative is to change your computer’s power
management settings so it does not go to sleep; however, this
may not be appropriate for portable computers. To change your
power management setting under Windows, see the “Power
Options” item in the Control Panel.
If you continue to have difficulty with Secure Connections, VPNs,
and AOL, please review the steps in the previous pages to be
sure you have addressed these issues.
Appendix C: Internet Connection Setting Table
The table on the next page provides references to select and configure
Internet connection in setting up your ADSL connection. Many ISPs
use different settings depending on the region and equipment they use.
You may try the setting for the ISPs in your region. If it does not work,
please contact your ISP for your specific setting.

section
Secure connections can be interrupted by a computer’s power
management setting, which causes it to “go to sleep.” The
simplest solution to avoid this is to simply reconnect by rerunning
the VPN or AOL software, or by re-logging into the secure website.
