Introduction
Welcome to the AR100 Series Internet Router—the complete Small Office/
Home Office Internet solution. Your AR100 Series Internet Router has a Basic
Rate ISDN port with full support for two ISDN B channels, providing dual
high speed connections to the Internet, to a remote office, or both. You can
connect up to four PCs directly to the AR100, or connect a hub for even more
LAN connections. The AR140 as two telephone ports for connecting telephones
or facsimile machines.
Data and voice traffic share the one ISDN connection, saving you additional
connection costs. Advanced call management functionality can automatically
use a second ISDN B channel for bandwidth-on-demand applications, or
disconnect a lower priority data call to free a B channel for a voice call or a
higher priority data traffic.
Whether your ISDN service provider offers an ISDN dial-on-demand service to
make calls only when you need them, or an ISDN leased line service to stay
connected continuously, you can configure your router to suit the needs of your
office.
What can the AR100 do for you?
Connect you to the Internet
The AR100 Series Internet Router provides you with high speed, unrestricted
access to the Internet, with compression techniques that speed up your data
traffic. It can automatically disconnect the ISDN call if there is no data to be
sent or received, to minimise call charges. The AR100 makes it easy for your
Internet Service Provider to dynamically assign your Internet address every
time you surf the net. You can use your router in an existing LAN, or directly
connect four PCs to its four Ethernet ports
Connect you to a remote office
Many small offices and home offices require fast and efficient access to a central
office, to check email, access a database or download a file. Your AR100 can
automatically open another ISDN channel when extra capacity is required, and
close it when traffic levels reduce. If your office LAN uses private IP addresses
not registered on the Internet, the AR100 can translate these private addresses
1-6
AR100 Series Internet Router User Guide
to a single registered IP address for communication across the Internet, saving
you the time and expense of assigning registered IP addresses to each device
on your LAN.
Connect you to other trading partners
The AR100 allows small offices to communicate with other trading partners
using ISDN dial-on-demand or ISDN leased line. Information such as reports,
quotes and orders can be transferred between the two offices. The AR100 does
not place any limits on the number of network users, so it will continue to
support you as your business grows.
Make phone and facsimile calls
The AR140 model has two voice ports. Any combination of telephones,
facsimile machines, and answering machines can be connected to these two
ports. Once connected, they behave as if connected to a standard telephone
network. Local, national and international voice and facsimile calls can be sent
and received as normal. There is no need for a separate line for voice, facsimile
and data—one ISDN connection does it all. The two ISDN channels are shared
between data and voice as required. When both channels are being used for
data, the AR100 can be configured to bump one of these channels if a voice call
is required, for example when an emergency number is dialled.
The AR140 Internet Router supports ISDN supplemental services, including
call waiting, conference calling, implicit call transfer and call forwarding. These
services must be provisioned on your ISDN line before they can be used by the
AR140.
Protect your network from unauthorised access
When you connect to the Internet you have unrestricted access to the WorldWide Web. Likewise, it has access to you! This is not normally a problem as you
are just one of many millions of subscribers. However, the AR100 has a fully
featured stateful inspection firewall that prevents unauthorised users accessing
your local network.
The AR100 also supports ISDN callback to verify the caller using CLI,
disconnect the incoming call, then call the destination back to establish the link.
This allows a remote site to reverse the call charges to a central office, for
central billing of ISDN calls.
Make configuration simple
Your AR100 Series Internet Router has an easy to use web-based configuration
interface. A wizard leads you step by step through setting up an Internet
connection or an inter-office connection for the first time. If you want to add
another connection or change the configuration later on, you can do this easily
from your web browser.

services, you can use Capability Package S.
■
If you have an AR140 router with voice ports and will use supplementary
voice services, you can use Capability Package U, IOC U or EZ ISDN 1.
Telephony on the AR140
If you have an AR140 Internet Router, you can use the supplemental telephony
services supported by the router if the corresponding services are provided on
your ISDN line. Check with your ISDN service provider to confirm whether
these services are available to you and if so, if there are any additional charges
for them. The AR100 supports the following supplementary services:
■
Call Waiting—Additional Call Offering (ACO) is required on your ISDN
line.
■
Conference (3-way) Calling—requires Flexible Calling on your ISDN line.
■
Implicit Call Transfer—requires Flexible Calling on your ISDN line.
■

Chapter 4
About web access to the AR100
The AR100’s web-based configuration tool makes configuring your router easy,
whether you want to configure it for the first time, view or change an existing
configuration, or want to monitor, test, troubleshoot or upgrade the software
for your router.
Web pages and your browser
You will configure the router by using HTML pages in an HTML/web browser.
If you do not have a browser installed on your computer already, install the
Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer software from the AR100
Series Internet Router CD, as described in “Installing Support Software” on
page 14.
Because the configuration information needed differs for the ISDN services
available in different countries, some of the wizard pages may differ from those
shown in this User Guide. There may also be small differences in these pages
depending on the web browser and the version of the router software you are
using.
AR100 Series Configuration Wizard
When you configure the router for the first time, AR100 Series Configuration
Wizard asks for the configuration information specific to your router setup.
The wizard gives the router a standard configuration that will suit most users.
Once the wizard is finished, it saves your configuration in a script that it will
keep using, even when you update to a new version of the software.
AR 100 Series Router Management Wizard
Once the router has been configured, you have access to the “AR100 Series
Menu page” on page 25 with links to the router’s utilities to update the router
configuration, monitor the router’s operation, and download software
updates.
One at a time
Only one user at a time can access the HTML pages to configure the router. If
you leave the wizard for more than thirty minutes while you are configuring it,
another user can log into it. This will restart the configuration wizard without
saving any of the configuration. The second user can then configure the router
from scratch.
If you are using the Menu pages for the AR100 and you become inactive for
more than five minutes, a second user can access the GUI. If they do, then you
(the first user) will lose access to the Menu pages. Otherwise you will get
another five minutes exclusive access to the Menu pages.
Security
When you have completed the wizard and come to the menu page, we
recommend that you change the management password. This is the password
you use to log in to the router. Note that other passwords entered on the
configuration wizard HTML pages can be seen by anyone backing through the
web browser pages on the PC.
Access the router with your web browser
1.
Insert the Installer and Documentation CD-ROM in the CD ROM drive, and
click Configure Router. The “AR100 Series Access Wizard Welcome dialog”
on page 16 opens.
2.
Click Start. The “Select a Router dialog” on page 16 opens.
3.
Select the router you want access to, and click Next.
If you select an uninitialised router, the AR100 Series Access Wizard leads
you through the configuration process. See “Getting your PC
communicating with the router” on page 15.
If you select an initialised router, your PC is connected to the router, and the
“Enter Network Password dialog” on page 24 opens.
Figure 4-1: Enter Network Password dialog

Changing your Ethernet IP address
When the router was connected and configured for the first time, the AR100
Router Finder program on the AR100 CD-ROM created a default Ethernet IP
address configuration that allowed for successful communication between the
PC and the router. Changing this configuration unawarely could cause your
connections to fail. Read this section carefully before changing the DHCP
server status or the router’s Ethernet IP address. If you are unsure, contact your
network administrator.
There is a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server in the AR100
that you can enable or disable. The DHCP server allows IP addresses to be
reused once they are no longer needed for a particular connection.
If the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server in the router is
enabled, then it allocates dynamic Ethernet IP addresses to devices on the LAN
including the router itself, and you cannot change these IP addresses unless
you disable the DHCP server.
Caution: If you disable the DHCP server, you will need to reconfigure all the
other devices on the LAN that were that are receiving dynamic Ethernet IP
addresses from the router.
If the router’s DHCP server is disabled, then the router’s Ethernet IP address is
determined by the IP address and mask you enter in the configuration.
Communication between the router and the PC you are using to configure it
depends on them having Ethernet IP addresses in the same IP subnetwork.
6-104
AR100 Series Internet Router User Guide
Caution: If you change the router’s IP address to an address that is not in the
same IP subnetwork as the PC, then they will no longer be able to communicate
with each other. Not only will the router not be able to route data to and from
the subnetwork that the PC is in, the PC will no longer be able to use the web
configuration tool on the router to change its configuration. Should this
happen, the only way to for the PC to get access to the router’s configuration is
to change its own Ethernet IP address so that it is in the same IP subnetwork
as the router, and then reboot.

Using Telephony Services
If you have an AR140 Internet Router with voice ports, you can connect up to
two telephones, facsimile machines, answering machines or modems. You can
use them in the same way that you use them on a regular telephone line, and
can use them at the same time as the ISDN line is being used for data. The
router supports ISDN supplementary services. These services must be
provided on your ISDN line before you can use them on your AR140. Check
with your telephone company to confirm whether these services are available
to you and if so, if there are any additional charges for them. Typically these
features are only supported on your first directory number, in which case you
may want to request that they be supported on your second directory number
as well. This usually costs more.
The supplementary services supported are:
■
Call Waiting - requires Additional Call Offering (ACO)on your ISDN line.
■
Conference (3-way) Calling - requires Flexible Calling on your ISDN line
■
Implicit Call Transfer - requires Flexible Calling on your ISDN line
■
Call Forwarding
■
Reminder Ring
Call Waiting
ISDN Call Waiting allows you to place a call on hold while you answer another
incoming call on the same directory number. By default call waiting is disabled
on both phone ports, but can be enabled on either port from the “Phone and
ISDN Information page” on page 96 or by the terminal command: “SET PBX
EXTEN=[0|1] CALLWAITING=ON”.
The Call Waiting feature on your ISDN line works the same way it does on a
regular analog line.
■
After hearing a call waiting indicator tone, press and release the flash hook
button on your telephone. This will put your current call on hold, and
answer the incoming call.
■
To switch back to the first call, press and release the flash hook button on
your telephone.
7-106
AR100 Series Internet Router User Guide
■
To toggle between the two calls, press and release the flash hook button.
■
To end your current call when you hear the call waiting tone and answer
the waiting call, simply hang-up the phone and wait for the phone to ring.
When you answer the call you will be connected.
■
If you have a call on hold, and want to end your current call, hang up the
phone and wait for the phone to ring. Pick up the phone to reconnect you.
■
If you have a call on hold and want to end it, reconnect to the held call by
pressing and releasing the flash hook button. Then hang up and wait for
the phone to ring to connect you to the other caller.
■
If you have a call on hold and the held caller hangs up, you will not know.
If you try to reconnect to the held caller by pressing and releasing the hook
flash button either you will put the current call on hold (if you don’t have
Flexible Calling) and you will need to hook flash to go back to them, or you
will get dial tone (if you have Flexible Calling).
■
If you have a call on hold and the current caller hangs up, you can retrieve
the held call by hook flashing or by hanging the phone up and waiting for
it to ring.
■
If a call is alerting and another call is received, the call waiting tone will be
generated as soon as the first alerting call is answered.
Conference Calling
The Conference Call feature allows you to add a third party to an existing call.
You will need Flexible Calling enabled on your ISDN line. A conference call
can be initiated by you regardless of whether you initiated the call or received
it.
How To Use Conference Calling
■
If you wish to call someone and include them in an existing call, then press
the flash hook button and release it to put the existing call on hold and
receive a dial tone. Dial the third party’s phone number. When you are
ready to conference the calls together, press the flash hook button and
release it to establish a Three Way Conference Call. You can conference the
third party into the call before the third party has answered the call. You
can not dial a third party to add them to a conference call until the first call
is answered.
■
To drop the last call added to the conference call, simply press the flash
hook button. The last call that was added to the conference will be
dropped.
■
To drop yourself from the conference call, hang-up your phone. The two
other callers will remain connected and the ISDN network will do an
implicit transfer to directly connect the two remaining callers together.
■
If the third party’s line is busy, hook flash once to return to your original
caller.
If the third party doesn’t answer, you haven’t hook flashed to invoke the
conference, and you wish to return to your original caller, hookflash twice.
If you have already hook flashed to invoke the conference, hook flash once
to return to your caller.
Using Telephony Services
7-107
■
If you dial a number which is unallocated or realise you have dialled a
wrong digit, wait until you hear the router’s unavailable tone in the
earpiece of the phone and then hookflash once to return to the original
caller. If you dial a wrong number, hookflash once to drop the call and
again to return to the original call.
Call Transfer
Call Transfer allows you to implicity transfer an active call to a third party. You
need Flexible Calling enabled on your ISDN line.
■
To transfer an active call to a third party, and announce the call, press and
release the flash hook button on your telephone to put the active call on
hold and receive a dial tone. Then dial the third party’s phone number.
Announce the call and press and release the flash hook button to establish
a conference call. Hang-up the phone. The ISDN network will do an
implicit transfer to directly connect the two callers.
■
To transfer an active call to a third party, without announcing the call
(known as a blind transfer), press and release the flash hook button on
your telephone to put the active call on hold and receive a dial tone. Then
dial the third party’s phone number. Before the third party answers the
call, hang-up the phone. The ISDN network will do an implicit transfer to
directly connect the two callers.
Call Forwarding
The AR140 supports Call Forwarding. To use this feature, use the telephone
keypad to enter the appropriate dial access codes. Your telephone company
will provide you with the access code. In most cases the call forwarding
activation code is “*72” and the deactivation code is “*73”. While the Call
Forwarding feature is active, the forwarded call is announced by a single ring
on the telephone from which you entered the access codes. This feature
reminds you that your calls are being forwarded.
■
To activate call forwarding, dial the activate access code (for instance “*72”)
and then the number you want incoming calls to be forwarded to.
■
To deactivate call forwarding, dial the deactivate access code (for instance
“*72”).

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting installation
If you are having problems installing the router, try one or more of the
following:
No LEDs light
If none of the LEDs on the front panel of the router light up the most likely
reason is that the router is not receiving mains power. Check the following.
■
The mains power outlet is not functioning. Test the mains power outlet
with some other equipment you know works.
■
The power switch on the mains supply outlet is not switched on. Check
that the switch is in the ON position.
■
If the problem persists, please contact your distributor or reseller
immediately.
LEDs light incorrectly
If the Run LED goes out after a few seconds, or the System LED stays on
contact your distributor or reseller immediately.

Dynamic IP Address Assignment Failed
Your PC needs to have an IP address assigned to it so that it can communicate
with the router. This can either be an IP address dynamically assigned to your
PC by a DHCP server, or it can be a fixed IP address. The AR100 series router
has a DHCP server that can be used to assign IP addresses to your PC. If this
dialog appears, your PC expects the AR100 series router to assign it an IP
address, but it hasn’t received one.

No gateway address
Your PC needs the IP address of a valid gateway to access remote networks like
the Internet or your remote office. It is configured to get IP addresses
dynamically assigned to it by a DHCP server. The AR100 series router may be
running as a DHCP server. If this dialog appears, then your PC has been
assigned its own IP address, but has not been given a valid gateway address.
This mean that there is another DHCP server on your LAN in addition to the
router you are configuring, and that it does not supply a valid gateway
address.

Gateway address already used
Your PC needs the IP address of a valid gateway to access remote networks like
the Internet or your remote office. This PC uses the router as its gateway. The
PC is configured to get its own IP address and the gateway IP address
dynamically assigned by a DHCP server. The AR100 series router may be
running as a DHCH server. When the PC gets a gateway address from the
DHCP server, it assigns it to the AR100 series router.
If this dialog box appears, the DHCP server has allocated a gateway IP address
to the PC that is already being used by another device, so that it cannot be used
for the AR100 series router.
