Introduction to Broadband
Router Technology
A router is a device that forwards data packets from a source to a destination.
Routers can work on Open System Interconnection (OSI) layer 3, which forwards data packets using an IP address and not a MAC address. A router will
forward data from the Internet to a particular computer on your LAN.
The information that makes up the Internet gets moved around using routers.
When you click on a link on a web page, you send a request to a server to show
you the next page. The request sent and the information received by your computer is moved from your computer to the server using routers. A router also
determines the best route that your information should follow to ensure that the
information is delivered properly.
A router controls the amount of data that is sent through your network by eliminating information that should not be there. This provides security for the computers behind your router because computers from the outside cannot access
or send information directly to any computer on your network. The router determines which computer the information should be forwarded to and sends it. If
the information is not intended for any computer on your network, the data is
discarded. This keeps any unwanted or harmful information from accessing or
damaging your network.
Introduction to Firewalls
A firewall is a device that sits between your computer and the Internet that prevents unauthorized access to or from your network. A firewall can be a computer using firewall software or a special piece of hardware built specifically to
act as a firewall. In most circumstances, a firewall is used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks such as corporate LANs
and Intranets.
A firewall watches all of the information moving to and from your network and
analyzes each piece of data. Each piece of data is checked against a set of
criteria that the administrator configures. If any data does not meet the criteria,
that data is blocked and discarded. If the data meets the criteria, the data is
passed through.. This method is called packet filtering.
A firewall can also run specific security functions based on the type of application or type of port that is being used. For example, a firewall can be configured
to work with an FTP or Telnet server. Or a firewall can be configured to work
with specific UDP or TCP ports to allow certain applications or games to work
properly over the Internet.

Introduction to Local Area Networking
A Local Area Network (LAN) is typically an Ethernet-based network that connects several computers together over a small area such as a building or group
of buildings. LAN’s can also be connected over large areas. A collection of LANs
connected over a large area is called a Wide Area Network (WAN).
There are many types of media that can connect computers together. The most
common media is CAT5 cable; UTP or STP twisted pair wire. Each computer
must have a Network Interface Card (NIC), which transfers the data between
computers. A NIC is usually a 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet adapter.
Most networks use hardware devices such as hubs or switches to transfer
data between computers. A hub receives data arriving through each port and
forwards the data to all other ports. A switch is more sophisticated, in that a
switch can determine the port (or corresponding computer) that each packet of
data is supposed to be delivered to. A switch minimizes network traffic and
speeds up communication over a network.
There are many types of scenarios to consider which could affect the operability of a network. Some of these issues are discussed in the manual under the
Networking Basics section.

The DI-704UP can be configured as a virtual server so that remote users accessing Web
or FTP services via the public IP address can be automatically redirected to local servers
in the LAN (Local Area Network). The DI-704UP firewall feature filters out unrecognized
packets to protect your LAN network so all computers networked with the DI-704UP are
invisible to the outside world. If public access is desired, you can make some of the LAN
computers accessible from the Internet by enabling Virtual Server. Depending on the
requested service, the DI-704UP redirects the external service request to the appropriate
server within the LAN network.
30
Using the Configuration Menu (continued)
Advanced > Virtual Server
The DI-704UP is also capable of port-redirection meaning incoming traffic to a particular
port can be redirected to a different port on the server computer. Each of the virtual
services that are created will be listed at the bottom of the screen in the Virtual Servers
List. There are already pre-defined virtual services already in the table. You may use
them by enabling them and assigning the server IP to use that particular virtual service.
Name:
The name referencing the virtual service.
Private IP:
The server computer in the LAN (Local Area Network) that will be providing the virtual
services.
Private Port:
The port number of the service used by the Private IP computer.
Protocol Type:

Frequently Asked Questions
Why can´t I access the web based configuration?
When entering the IP Address of the DI-704UP (192.168.0.1), you are not connecting
to the Internet or have to be connected to the Internet. The device has the utility builtin to a ROM chip in the device itself. Your computer must be on the same IP subnet
to connect to the web-based utility.
To resolve difficulties accessing a web utility, please follow the steps below.
Step 1 Verify physical connectivity by checking for solid link lights on the device. If
you do not get a solid link light, try using a different cable or connect to a different
port on the device if possible. If the computer is turned off, the link light will not be
on.
What type of cable should I be using?
The following connections require a Crossover Cable:
Computer to Computer
Computer to Uplink Port
Computer to Access Point
Computer to Print Server
Computer/XBOX/PS2 to DWL-810
Computer/XBOX/PS2 to DWL-900AP+
Uplink Port to Uplink Port (hub/switch)
Normal Port to Normal Port (hub/switch)
The following connections require a Straight-through Cable:
Computer to Residential Gateway/Router
Computer to Normal Port (hub/switch)
Access Point to Normal Port (hub/switch)
Print Server to Normal Port (hub/switch)
Uplink Port to Normal Port (hub/switch)
Rule of Thumb:
”If there is a link light, the cable is right.”

Frequently Asked Questions (continued)
Why can´t I access the web based configuration? (continued)
What type of cable should I be using? (continued)
What´s the difference between a crossover cable and a straight-through
cable?
The wiring in crossover and straight-through cables are different. The two types
of cable have different purposes for different
LAN configurations. EIA/TIA 568A/568B
define the wiring standards and allow for
two different wiring color codes as
illustrated in the following diagram.
*The wires with colored backgrounds may
have white stripes and may be denoted
that way in diagrams found elsewhere.
How to tell straight-through cable from
a crossover cable:
The main way to tell the difference
between the two cable types is to compare
the wiring order on the ends of the cable. If
the wiring is the same on both sides, it is
straight-through cable. If one side has opposite wiring, it is a crossover cable.
All you need to remember to properly configure the cables is the pinout order of
the two cable ends and the following rules:
A straight-through cable has identical ends
A crossover cable has different ends
It makes no functional difference which standard you follow for straight-through
cable ends, as long as both ends are the same. You can start a crossover cable
with either standard as long as the other end is the other standard. It makes no
functional difference which end is which. The order in which you pin the cable is
important. Using a pattern other than what is specified in the above diagram
could cause connection problems.
When to use a crossover cable and when to use a straight-through cable:
Computer to Computer – Crossover
Computer to an normal port on a Hub/Switch – Straight-through
Computer to an uplink port on a Hub/Switch - Crossover
Hub/Switch uplink port to another Hub/Switch uplink port – Crossover
Hub/Switch uplink port to another Hub/Switch normal port - Straight-through

How can I setup my router to work with Earthlink DSL or any PPPoE
connection?
Make sure you disable or uninstall any PPPoE software such as WinPoet or Enternet
300 from your computer or you will not be able to connect to the Internet.
Step 1 Upgrade Firmware if needed.
(Please visit the D-Link tech support website at: http://support.dlink.com for the latest
firmware upgrade information.)
Step 2 Take a paperclip and perform a hard reset. With the unit on, use a paperclip
and hold down the reset button on the back of the unit for 10 seconds. Release it and
the router will recycle, the lights will blink, and then stabilize.
Step 3 After the router stabilizes, open your browser and enter 192.168.0.1 into the
address window and hit the Enter key. When the password dialog box appears, enter
the username admin and leave the password blank. Click OK.
If the password dialog box does not come up repeat Step 2.
Note: Do not run Wizard.

Step 8 Click Apply. When prompted, click Continue. Once the screen refreshes,
unplug the power to the D-Link router.
Step 9 Turn off your DSL modem for 2-3 minutes. Turn back on. Once the modem
has established a link to your ISP, plug the power back into the D-Link router. Wait
about 30 seconds and log back into the router.
Step 10 Click on the Status tab in the web configuration where you can view the
device info. Under WAN, click Connect. Click Continue when prompted. You should
now see that the device info will show an IP Address, verifying that the device has
connected to a server and has been assigned an IP Address.
Can I use my D-Link Broadband Router to share my Internet
connection provided by AOL DSL Plus?
In most cases yes. AOL DSL Plus may use PPPoE for authentication bypassing the
client software. If this is the case, then our routers will work with this service. Please
contact AOL if you are not sure.
To set up your router:
Step 1Log into the web based configuration by typing in the IP Address of the router
(default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The username is admin (all lowercase) and
the password is blank (empty).
Step 2 Enter your screen name followed by @aol.com for the user name. Enter your
AOL password in the password box.
Step 3 You will have to set the MTU to 1400. AOL DSL Plus does not allow for
anything higher than 1400.
Step 4 Click Apply.
Step 5 Recycle the power to the modem for 1 minute and then recycle power to the
router. Allow 1 to 2 minutes to connect.
If you connect to the Internet with a different ISP and want to use the AOL software,
you can do that without configuring the router’s firewall settings. You need to
configure the AOL software to connect using TCP/IP.
Go to http://www.aol.com for more specific configuration information of their software.

Frequently Asked Questions (continued)
How do I open ports on my router?
To allow traffic from the Internet to enter
your local network, you will need to open
up ports or the router will block the
request.
Step 1 Log into the web based
configuration by typing in the IP Address
of the router (default:192.168.0.1) in your
web browser. The username is admin (all
lowercase) and the password is blank
(empty).
Step 2 Click on Advanced on top and
then click Virtual Server on the left
Step 3 Check Enabled to activate
entry.
Step 4 Enter a name for your virtual
server entry.
Step 5 Next to Private IP, enter the IP
Address of the computer on your local
network that you want to allow the
incoming service to.
Step 6 Choose Protocol Type - either TCP, UDP, or both. If you are not sure, select
both.
Step 7 Enter the port information next to Private Port and Public Port. The private
and public ports are usually the same. The public port is the port seen from the WAN
side, and the private port is the port being used by the application on the computer
within your local network.
Step 8 Set the Schedule information.
Step 9 Click Apply and then click Continue.
Note: Make sure DMZ host is disabled. If DMZ is enabled, it will disable all Virtual
Server entries.
Because our routers use NAT (Network Address Translation), you can only open a specific
port to one computer at a time. For example: If you have 2 web servers on your network,
you cannot open port 80 to both computers. You will need to configure one of the web
servers to use port 81. Now you can open port 80 to the first computer.
89
Frequently Asked Questions (continued)
What is DMZ?
Demilitarized Zone:
In computer networks, a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) is a computer host or small
network inserted as a neutral zone between a company´s private network and the
outside public network. It prevents outside users from getting direct access to a
server that has company data. (The term comes from the geographic buffer zone that
was set up between North Korea and South Korea following the UN police action in
the early 1950s.) A DMZ is an optional and more secure approach to a firewall and
effectively acts as a proxy server as well.
In a typical DMZ configuration for a small company, a separate computer (or host in
network terms) receives requests from users within the private network for access to
Web sites or other companies accessible on the public network. The DMZ host then
initiates sessions for these requests on the public network. However, the DMZ host is
not able to initiate a session back into the private network. It can only forward packets
that have already been requested.
Users of the public network outside the company can access only the DMZ host. The
DMZ may typically also have the company´s Web pages so these could be served to
the outside world. However, the DMZ provides access to no other company data. In
the event that an outside user penetrated the DMZ hosts security, the Web pages
might be corrupted but no other company information would be exposed. D-Link, a
leading maker of routers, is one company that sells products designed for setting up
a DMZ
How do I configure the DMZ Host?
The DMZ feature allows you to forward all incoming ports to one computer on the local
network. The DMZ, or Demilitarized Zone, will allow the specified computer to be
exposed to the Internet. DMZ is useful when a certain application or game does not
work through the firewall. The computer that is configured for DMZ will be completely
vulnerable on the Internet, so it is suggested that you try opening ports from the
Virtual Server or Firewall settings before using DMZ.
Step 1 Find the IP address of the computer you want to use as the DMZ host.
To find out how to locate the IP Address of the computer in Windows XP/2000/ME/9x
or Macintosh operating systems please refer to Step 4 of the first question in this
section (Frequently Asked Questions).

Step 3 Click the Advanced tab and then click on the DMZ button. Select Enable
and type in the IP Address from Step 1.
Step 4 Click Apply
and then Continue to
save the changes.
Note: When DMZ is
enabled, Virtual Server
settings will still be
effective. Remember,
you cannot forward the
same port to multiple
IP Addresses, so the
Virtual Server settings
will take priority over
DMZ settings.

Frequently Asked Questions (continued)
How does NetMeeting work with my D-Link Router?
Unlike most TCP/IP applications, NetMeeting uses DYNAMIC PORTS instead of
STATIC PORTS. That means that each NetMeeting connection is somewhat different
than the last. For instance, the HTTP web site application uses port 80. NetMeeting
can use any of over 60,000 different ports.
All broadband routers using only standard NAT and all internet sharing programs like
Microsoft ICS that use only standard NAT will NOT work with NetMeeting or other
h.323 software packages.
In order to use NetMeeting with your D-LInk router, you need to put the router in DMZ.
Note: A few hardware manufacturers have taken it on themselves to actually provide
H.323 compatibility. This is not an easy task since the router must search each
incoming packet for signs that it might be a netmeeting packet. This is a whole lot
more work than a router normally does and may actually be a weak point in the
firewall. D-Link is not one of the manufacturers.

How do I send or receive a file via iChat when the Mac OSX firewall
is active? -for Macintosh users- Mac OS X 10.2 and later
The following information is from the online Macintosh AppleCare knowledge base:
“iChat cannot send or receive a file when the Mac OS X firewall is active in its default
state. If you have opened the AIM port, you may be able to receive a file but not send
them.
In its default state, the Mac OS X firewall blocks file transfers using iChat or America
Online AIM software. If either the sender or receiver has turned on the Mac OS X firewall,
the transfer may be blocked.
The simplest workaround is to temporarily turn off the firewall in the Sharing preference
pane on both computers. This is required for the sender. However, the receiver may keep
the firewall on if the AIM port is open. To open the AIM port:
Step 1 Choose Apple menu > System Preferences.
Step 2 Choose View > Sharing.
Step 3 Click the Firewall tab.
Step 4 Click New.
Step 5 Choose AOL IM from the Port Name pop-up menu. The number 5190
should already be filled in for you.
Step 6 Click OK.
If you do not want to turn off the firewall at the sending computer, a different file sharing
service may be used instead of iChat. The types of file sharing available in Mac OS X are
outlined in technical document 106461, "Mac OS X: File Sharing" in the AppleCare Knowledge base online.
Note: If you use a file sharing service when the firewall is turned on, be sure to click the
Firewall tab and select the service you have chosen in the "Allow" list. If you do not do
this, the firewall will also block the file sharing service. “

Frequently Asked Questions (continued)
What is NAT?
NAT stands for Network Address Translator. It is proposed and described in RFC1631 and is used for solving the IP Address depletion problem. Each NAT box has a
table consisting of pairs of local IP Addresses and globally unique addresses, by
which the box can “translate” the local IP Addresses to global address and vice versa.
Simply put, NAT is a method of connecting multiple computers to the Internet (or any
other IP network) using one IP Address.
D-Link´s broadband routers (ie: DI-704UP) support NAT. With proper configuration,
multiple users can access the Internet using a single account via the NAT device.

Hardware. All Hardware (or part thereof) that is replaced by D-Link, or for which the purchase price is
refunded, shall become the property of D-Link upon replacement or refund.
Limited Software Warranty: D-Link warrants that the software portion of the product (“Software”)
will substantially conform to D-Link’s then current functional specifications for the Software, as set forth
in the applicable documentation, from the date of original retail purchase of the Software for a period of
ninety (90) days (“Warranty Period”), provided that the Software is properly installed on approved
hardware and operated as contemplated in its documentation. D-Link further warrants that, during the
Warranty Period, the magnetic media on which D-Link delivers the Software will be free of physical
defects. D-Link’s sole obligation shall be to replace the non-conforming Software (or defective media)
with software that substantially conforms to D-Link’s functional specifications for the Software or to
refund at D-Link’s sole discretion. Except as otherwise agreed by D-Link in writing, the replacement
Software is provided only to the original licensee, and is subject to the terms and conditions of the
license granted by D-Link for the Software. Software will be warranted for the remainder of the original
Warranty Period from the date or original retail purchase. If a material non-conformance is incapable of
correction, or if D-Link determines in its sole discretion that it is not practical to replace the nonconforming Software, the price paid by the original licensee for the non-conforming Software will be
refunded by D-Link; provided that the non-conforming Software (and all copies thereof) is first returned
to D-Link. The license granted respecting any Software for which a refund is given automatically
terminates.

of D-Link’s products will not be applied to and does not cover any refurbished product and any product
purchased through the inventory clearance or liquidation sale or other sales in which D-Link, the sellers,

the product is being sold “As-Is” without any warranty whatsoever including, without limitation, the
Limited Warranty as described herein, notwithstanding anything stated herein to the contrary.
