4-Port Broadband
VPN Router
Before You Begin
1 . If you purchased this router to share your high-speed Internet connection with other
computers, you must have either an Ethernet-based Cable or DSL modem with an
established Internet account from an Internet Service Provider (ISP).
2 . It’s best to use the same computer that is connected to your modem for configuring
the DI-804HV VPN Router. The DI-804HV acts as a DHCP server and will assign all
the necessary IP address information on your network. See Appendix at the end
of this Quick Installation Guide or the Manual on the CD-ROM for setting each
network adapter to automatically obtain an IP address.
