(see chapter “Setting Up Your Computer”)
The LAN port on the Home Station ADSL auto-negotiates the connection speed and
the duplex mode with the connecting device.
Use twisted-pair cabling to connect the Home Station ADSL to an Ethernet adapter
on your PC. Otherwise, cascade any of the LAN ports on the Home Station ADSL to
an Ethernet hub or switch. When inserting an RJ-45 connector, be sure the tab on
the connector clicks into position to ensure that is properly seated.
Do not plug a phone jack into RJ-45. This may damage the Home Station ADSL. Instead, use only twisted-pair
cables with RJ-45 connectors that conform with FCC standards.
Use 100-ohm shielded or unshielded twisted-pair cable with RJ-45 connectors for all Ethernet ports. We recommend using Category 5 cable for connections with the device. Also, make sure the lenght of each twistedpair cable does not exceed 100 meters ( 328 feet ).

SECURITY
This page allows you to configure security features of the wireless LAN interface by
means of a manual configuration or through a Wi-Fi protected Setup (WPS).
In case the manual setup AP is the preferred choice, the network authentication
method, selecting data encryption, specifying whether a network key is required to
authenticate to this wireless network and specifying the encryption strength are to
be selected. This page allows you to select the network authentication method and
to enable or disable WEP encryption.
Depending on the network authentication that is selected, the screen will change
accordingly so additional fields can be configured for the specific authentication
method.
Allowed Network Authentication are:
1.
Open — anyone can access the network. The default is a disabled WEP encryption setting.
2.
Shared — WEP encryption is enabled and encryption key strength of 64-bit
or 128-bit needs to be selected. Click on Set Encryption Keys to manually

set the network encryption keys. Up to 4 different keys can be set and you
can come back to select which one to use at anytime.
3.
802.1X — requires mutual authentication between a client station and the
router by including a RADIUS-based authentication server. Information
about the RADIUS server such as its IP address, port and key must be entered. WEP encryption is also enabled and the encryption strength must also be selected.
4.
WPA — (WiFi Protected Access) — usually used for the larger Enterprise
environment, it uses a RADIUS server and TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity
Protocol) encryption (instead of WEP encryption which is disabled). TKIP
uses128-bit dynamic session keys (per user, per session, and per packet
keys).
5.
WPA-PSK (WiFi Protected Access – Pre-Shared Key)—WPA for home and
SOHO environments also using the same strong TKIP encryption, perpacket key construction, and key management that WPA provides in the
enterprise environment. The main difference is that the password is entered
manually. A group re-key interval time is also required.
6.
WPA2 (WiFi Protected Access 2) —second generation of WPA which uses
AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) instead of TKIP as its encryption
method. Network re-auth interval is the time in which another key needs to
be dynamically issued.
7.
WPA2-PSK (WiFi Protected Access 2 – Pre-Shared Key)—suitable for home
and SOHO environments, it also uses AES encryption and requires you to
enter a password and an re-key interval time.
8.
Mixed WPA2 / WPA —during transitional times for upgrades in the enterprise environment, this mixed authentication method allows “upgraded”
and users not yet “upgraded” to access the network via the router. RADIUS
server information must be entered for WPA and a as well as a group re-key
interval time. Both TKIP and AES are used.
9.
Mixed WPA2 / WPA-PSK —useful during transitional times for upgrades
in the home or SOHO environment, a pre-shared key must be entered along
with the group re-key interval time. Both TKIP and AES are also used.

IP Addressing
A
The Internet Protocol Suite
The Internet protocol suite consists of a well-defined set of communications protocols and several standard application protocols. Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is probably the most widely known and
is a combination of two of the protocols (IP and TCP) working together. TCP/IP is an internationally adopted and
supported networking standard that provides connectivity between equipment from many vendors over a wide variety of networking technologies.
Managing the Router over the Network
To manage a device over the network, the Router must be correctly configured with the following IP information:
• An IP address
• A Subnet Mask
IP Addresses and Subnet Masks
Each device on your network must have a unique IP address to operate correctly. An IP address identifies the address of the device to which data is being sent and the address of the destination network. IP addresses have the
format n.n.n.x where n is a decimal number between 0 and 255 and x is a number between 1 and 254 inclusive.
However, an IP Address alone is not enough to make your device operate. In addition to the IP address, you need to
set a subnet mask. All networks are divided into smaller sub-networks and a subnet mask is a number that enables
a device to identify the sub-network to which it is connected.
For your network to work correctly, all devices on the network must have:
• The same sub-network address.
• The same subnet mask.
The only value that will be different is the specific host device number. This value must always be unique.
An example IP address is ‘192.168.1.8’. However, the size of the network determines the structure of this IP Address. In using the Router, you will probably only encounter two types of IP Address and subnet mask structures.
Type One
In a small network, the IP address of ‘192.168.1.8’ is split into two parts:
• Part one (‘192.168.1’) identifies the network on which the device resides.
• Part two (‘.8’) identifies the device within the network.
This type of IP Address operates on a subnet mask of ‘255.255.255.0’.
Home Station ADSL ADB P.DG A4001N
89
Type Two
In larger networks, where there are more devices, the IP address of ‘192.168.1.8’ is, again, split into two parts but is
structured differently:
• Part one (‘192.168’) identifies the network on which the device resides.
• Part two (‘.1.8’) identifies the device within the network.
This type of IP Address operates on a subnet mask of ‘255.255.0.0’.
How does a Device Obtain an IP Address and Subnet Mask?
There are three different ways to obtain an IP address and the subnet mask. These are:
• Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Addressing
• Static Addressing
• Automatic Addressing (Auto-IP Addressing)
DHCP Addressing
The Router contains a DHCP server, which allows computers on your network to obtain an IP address and subnet
mask automatically. DHCP assigns a temporary IP address and subnet mask which gets reallocated once you disconnect from the network.
DHCP will work on any client Operating System. Also, using DHCP means that the same IP address and subnet
mask will never be duplicated for devices on the network. DHCP is particularly useful for networks with large numbers of users on them.
Static Addressing
You must enter an IP Address and the subnet mask manually on every device. Using a static IP and subnet mask
means the address is permanently fixed.
Auto-IP Addressing
Network devices use automatic IP addressing if they are configured to acquire an address using DHCP but are unable to contact a DHCP server. Automatic IP addressing is a scheme where devices allocate themselves an IP address
at random from the industry standard subnet of 169.254.x.x (with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0). If two devices
allocate themselves the same address, the conflict is detected and one of the devices allocates itself a new address. Automatic IP addressing support was introduced by Microsoft in the Windows 98 operating system and is
also supported in Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Glossary
802.11b
The IEEE specification for wireless Ethernet which allows speeds of up to 11 Mbps. The standard provides for 1, 2,
5.5 and 11 Mbps data rates. The rates will switch automatically depending on range and environment.
802.11g
The IEEE specification for wireless Ethernet which allows speeds of up to 54 Mbps. The standard provides for 6, 9,
12, 18, 24, 36, 48 and 54 Mbps data rates. The rates will switch automatically depending on range and environment.
802.11n
The IEEE specification for wireless Ethernet which allows speeds of up to 300 Mbps. The standard provides for 7,2
up to 300 Mbps data rates. The rates will switch automatically depending on range and environment.
10BASE-T
The IEEE specification for 10 Mbps Ethernet over Category 3, 4 or 5 twisted pair cable.
100BASE-TX
The IEEE specification for 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet over Category 5 twisted-pair cable.
Access Point
An Access Point is a device through which wireless clients connect to other wireless clients and which acts as a
bridge between wireless clients and a wired network, such as Ethernet. Wireless clients can be moved anywhere
within the coverage area of the access point and still connect with each other. If connected to an Ethernet network,
the access point monitors Ethernet traffic and forwards appropriate Ethernet messages to the wireless network,
while also monitoring wireless client radio traffic and forwarding wireless client messages to the Ethernet LAN.
Ad Hoc mode
Ad Hoc mode is a configuration supported by most wireless clients. It is used to connect a peer to peer network together without the use of an access point. It offers lower performance than infrastructure mode, which is the mode
the router uses. (see also Infrastructure mode.
Home Station ADSL ADB P.DG A4001N
95
Auto-negotiation
Some devices in the range support auto-negotiation. Auto-negotiation is where two devices sharing a link, automatically configure to use the best common speed. The order of preference (best first) is: 100BASE-TX full duplex,
100BASE-TX half duplex, 10BASE-T full duplex, and 10BASE-T half duplex. Auto-negotiation is defined in the IEEE
802.3 standard for Ethernet and is an operation that takes place in a few milliseconds.
Bandwidth
The information capacity, measured in bits per second, that a channel can transmit. The bandwidth of Ethernet is
10 Mbps, the bandwidth of Fast Ethernet is 100 Mbps. The bandwidth for 802.11b wireless is 11Mbps.
Category 5 Cables
One of five grades of Twisted Pair (TP) cabling defined by the EIA/TIA-586 standard. Category 5 can be used in
Ethernet (10BASE-T) and Fast Ethernet networks (100BASE-TX) and can transmit data up to speeds of 100 Mbps.
Category 5 cabling is better to use for network cabling than Category 3, because it supports both Ethernet (10
Mbps) and Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps) speeds.
Channel
Similar to any radio device, the Wireless Cable/DSL router allows you to choose different radio channels in the
wireless spectrum. A channel is a particular frequency within the 2.4GHz spectrum within which the Router operates.
Client
The term used to described the desktop PC that is connected to your network.
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. This protocol automatically assigns an IP address for every computer on
your network. Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows NT 4.0 contain software that assigns IP addresses to workstations on a network. These assignments are made by the DHCP server software that runs on Windows NT Server,
and Windows 95 and Windows 98 will call the server to obtain the address. Windows 98 will allocate itself an address if no DHCP server can be found.
DMZ
DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) is an area outside the firewall, to let remote users to have access to items on your network (Web site, FTP download and upload area, etc.).
96
Home Station ADSL ADB P.DG A4001N
DNS Server Address
DNS stands for Domain Name System, which allows Internet host computers to have a domain name (such as
adbglobal.com) and one or more IP addresses (such as 192.168.10.8). A DNS server keeps a database of host computers and their respective domain names and IP addresses, so that when a domain name is requested (as in typing “adbglobal.com” into your Internet browser), the user is sent to the proper IP address. The DNS server address
used by the computers on your home network is the location of the DNS server your ISP has assigned.
DSL
Short for digital subscriber line, but is commonly used in reference to the asymmetric version of this technology
(ADSL) that allows data to be sent over existing copper telephone lines at data rates of from 1.5 to 9 Mbps when
receiving data (known as the downstream rate) and from 16 to 640 Kbps when sending data (known as the upstream rate). ADSL requires a special ADSL modem. ADSL is growing in popularity as more areas around the world
gain access.
DSL modem
DSL stands for digital subscriber line. A DSL modem uses your existing phone lines to send and receive data at high
speeds.
Encryption
A method for providing a level of security to wireless data transmissions. The Router uses two levels of encryption;
40/64 bit and 128 bit. 128 bit is a more powerful level of encryption than 40/64 bit.
Ethernet
A LAN specification developed jointly by Xerox, Intel and Digital Equipment Corporation. Ethernet networks use
CSMA/CD to transmit packets at a rate of 10 Mbps over a variety of cables.
Ethernet Address
See MAC address.
Fast Ethernet
An Ethernet system that is designed to operate at 100 Mbps.
Firewall
Electronic protection that prevents anyone outside of your network from seeing your files or damaging your computers.
Home Station ADSL ADB P.DG A4001N
97
Full Duplex
A system that allows packets to be transmitted and received at the same time and, in effect, doubles the potential
throughput of a link.
IEEE
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. This American organization was founded in 1963 and sets standards for computers and communications.
IETF
Internet Engineering Task Force. An organization responsible for providing engineering solutions for TCP/IP networks. In the network management area, this group is responsible for the development of the SNMP protocol.
IGMP
The Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) is an Internet protocol that provides a way for an Internet computer to report its multicast group membership to adjacent routers. Multicasting allows one computer on the Internet to send content to multiple other computers that have identified themselves as interested in receiving the
originating computer's content. Multicasting can be used for such applications as updating the address books of
mobile computer users in the field, sending out company newsletters to a distribution list, and
"broadcasting" high-bandwidth programs of streaming media to an audience that has "tuned in" by setting up a
multicast group membership.
Infrastructure mode
Infrastructure mode is the wireless configuration supported by the Router. You will need to ensure all of your clients are set up to use infrastructure mode in order for them to communicate with the Access Point built into your
Router. (see also Ad Hoc mode)
IP
Internet Protocol. IP is a layer 3 network protocol that is the standard for sending data through a network. IP is part
of the TCP/IP set of protocols that describe the routing of packets to addressed devices. An IP address consists of
32 bits divided into two or three fields: a network number and a host number or a network number, a subnet number, and a host number.
IP Address
Internet Protocol Address. A unique identifier for a device attached to a network using TCP/IP. The address is written as four octets separated with periods (full-stops), and is made up of a network section, an optional subnet section and a host section.
ISP
Internet Service Provider. An ISP is a business that provides connectivity to the Internet for individuals and other
businesses or organizations.

LAN
Local Area Network. A network of end stations (such as PCs, printers, servers) and network devices (hubs and
switches) that cover a relatively small geographic area (usually not larger than a floor or building). LANs are characterized by high transmission speeds over short distances (up to 1000 metres).
MAC
Media Access Control. A protocol specified by the IEEE for determining which devices have access to a network at
any one time.
MAC Address
Media Access Control Address. Also called the hardware or physical address. A layer 2 address associated with a
particular network device. Most devices that connect to a LAN have a MAC address assigned to them as they are
used to identify other devices in a network. MAC addresses are 6 bytes long.
Mbps
Megabits per second.
MDI/MDIX
In cable wiring, the concept of transmit and receive are from the perspective of the PC, which is wired as a Media
Dependant Interface (MDI). In MDI wiring, a PC transmits on pins 1 and 2. At the hub, switch, router, or access
point, the perspective is reversed, and the hub receives on pins 1 and 2. This wiring is referred to as Media Dependant Interface - Crossover (MDI-X).
NAT
Network Address Translation. NAT enables all the computers on your network to share one IP address. The NAT
capability of the Router allows you to access the Internet from any computer on your home network without having to purchase more IP addresses from your ISP.
Network
A Network is a collection of computers and other computer equipment that are connected for the purpose of exchanging information or sharing resources. Networks vary in size, some are within a single room, others span continents.
Network Interface Card (NIC)

Switch
A device that interconnects several LANs to form a single logical LAN that comprises of several LAN segments.
Switches are similar to bridges, in that they connect LANs of a different type; however they connect more LANs
than a bridge and are generally more sophisticated.
TCP/IP
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. This is the name for two of the most well-known protocols developed for the interconnection of networks. Originally a UNIX standard, TCP/IP is now supported on almost all platforms, and is the protocol of the Internet.
TCP
It relates to the content of the data travelling through a network — ensuring that the information sent arrives in
one piece when it reaches its destination. IP relates to the address of the end station to which data is being sent, as
well as the address of the destination network.
Traffic
The movement of data packets on a network.
Universal plug and play
