Operation Range
The operation range of the PLC wireless router depends on the actual
environment. The path and effect of signal transmission may vary with the
deployment in a house or an office. In theory, the maximum PLC transmission
distance can reach 300 meters. But for the practical application, the PLC
transmission distance may vary due to the number of PLC devices connected to
the power line network. For wireless transmission, straight transmission distance
in the open air for some devices can reach 300 meters and indoor transmission
distance can reach 100 meters.

network can reduce the routing problems, improve the overload of routing traffic,
and increase the forwarding speed of data packets. You can set the destination IP
address, subnet mask, and gateway to specify a routing rule. The destination IP
address and subnet mask are used to determine a destination network or a host.

UPnP
By using the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) protocol, a host on the LAN side can
require the router to realize the conversion of specific port, so that an external host
can access resources on the internal host when necessary. For example, if MSN
Messenger is installed on Windows ME and Windows XP operating systems,
UPnP can be used for audio and video conversations. In this way, functions
restricted by NAT can work properly.
Choose Advanced Network > UPnP on the left pane or click UPnP in the
ADVANCED NETWORK page to display the following page.
In this page, you can enable the UPnP function and select a WAN connection.

TR-069, one of the technology specifications, comes from the Digital Subscriber
Line (DSL) Forum, whose full name is "CPE WAN Management Protocol
(CWMP)". TR069 defines the general frame and protocol for next-generation
home network devices. By using the TR069, the PLC router can realize the remote
centralized management to the home network devices such as gateway, router,
and set top box from the LAN side.
The basic features of the TR-069 are as follows:

Automatic configuration and dynamic service

IGMP
IGMP Snooping is used for multicast management and control. When the Ethernet
switch of the second layer receives the IGMP packets transmitted between the
host and router, IGMP Snooping will analyze the packets to establish and maintain
the address table of the MAC multicast, and then the routing multicast packets will
be transmitted according to the address table of MAC multicast. In this way, it
dramatically reduces the service flood on the receiving interface of unregistered
multicast group.
The IGMP proxy can make the PLC wireless router intercept the IGMP message
of host via the LAN interface, and then the IGMP message of host is transmitted
via the WAN interface. After IGMP proxy is enabled, the PLC wireless router works
as the agent server of host.
Choose Advanced Network > IGMP on the left pane or click IGMP in the
ADVANCED NETWORK page to display the following page.
86
NHP5010 User Manual
In this page, you can enable or disable the IGMP Snooping and IGMP proxy.
After IGMP Snooping is enabled, only the host that has joined the multicast group
can receive the multicast packets. Once the host leaves the multicast group, it
cannot receive the multicast packets any more.
After IGMP Proxy is enabled, you can enable or disable the IGMP Proxy function
of the selected WAN connections
After setting the parameter, click Apply to save the settings.
5.3.4.10
Dynamic DNS
Dynamic DNS can map a dynamic IP address to a fixed host name, and all users
on the Internet can access the host by this host name. ISP assigns the IP
addresses by DHCP, so it is difficult for the users to search the host by DNS. For
example, if the IP address of a public Web server or VPN server is changed on the
LAN, you can still find the corresponding host by the DDNS service.
Choose Advanced Network > Dynamic DNS on the left pane or click DDNS in
the ADVANCED NETWORK page to display the following page.

Using the Security Pushbutton
This chapter describes how to add new devices to, or remove old devices from a
HomePlug AV logical network (AVLN). Both can be accomplished by using a
Security (NMK) pushbutton.
Operation progress and outcome can be monitored by observing the behaviors of
the Power and Data LED indicators.
6.1
Forming a HomePlug AV Logical Network
When two devices (A and B) with different NMK values are connected to the same
power line, you want them to form a logical network. Do as follows:
Step1
Press the Security pushbutton on A or B for at least 10 seconds. The
device will reset and restart with a random NMK.
Step2
Press the Security pushbutton on the first device A for less than 3 seconds.
Step3
Press the Security pushbutton on the second device B for less than 3
seconds. Press the pushbutton on B within 2 minutes
Step4
Wait for the connection to complete.
The Power LED indicators on both devices will flash evenly at 1-second interval
until the operation succeeds or fails. If the connection is successful, the Power and
Data LED indicators on both devices illuminate steadily. If the connection is failed,
the Power LED indicators on both devices still illuminate steadily, but the Data LED
indicators on both devices go out. In that case, please repeat Step1 to Step4.

NHP5010 User Manual
6.2
Joining an AVLN Network
Assume that a network exists, a new device, the ‘joiner’, wants to join the network.
Any device on the existing network can become the ‘adder’.
Step1
Press the Security pushbutton on the ‘joiner’ for at least 10 seconds. The
device will reset and restart with a random NMK.
Step2
Press the Security pushbutton on the ‘joiner’ for less than 3 seconds.
Step3
Press the Security pushbutton on any network device for less than 3
seconds, making it the ‘adder’. Please press this pushbutton within 1
minute.
Step4
Wait for the connection to complete.
The Power LED indicators on both devices will flash at 1-second interval until the
process succeeds or fails. If the connection is successful, the Power and Data LED
indicators on both devices illuminate steadily. If the connection is failed, the Power
LED indicators on both devices still illuminate steadily, but the Data LED indicators
on both devices go out. In that case please repeat Step1 to Step4.

6.3
Leaving an AVLN Network
Assume that a network exists. If you want to remove one device, the ‘leaver’ from
an AVLN network, or remove the device from the existing network and have it join
another logical network, do as follows:
Step1
Press the Security pushbutton on the ‘leaver’ for more than 10 seconds.
The device will reset and restart with a random NMK.
Step2
Wait for reset to complete.
The Power LED indicator on the ‘leaver’ will momentarily extinguish during reset
and flash during restart, then illuminate steadily. The ‘leaver’ is removed from the
existing network successfully.
Once the process completes, you may disconnect the device from the medium or
join it to another logical network on the same medium.
