Chapter 3: Routine Router Settings and Status
Using router settings and features
The router comes with pre-set settings that let it operate in most situations.
You can make changes to these settings if you want to turn on additional
features on your router or to make your router conform to your ISP’s
requirements for Internet access.
The Gateway Wireless Router Setup utility lets you turn many of the router’s
features on and off to customize your network.
Configuring LAN settings
These settings configure the router for operation within your local area network.
The LAN IP address is the address your computers see and the address they use
to contact the router.
We recommend that you use the default values for IP address and subnet mask,
unless the address is already being used in your LAN or your LAN is using a
different address range.
To configure the LAN settings:
1
22
After accessing the Setup page (see “Contacting the router” on page 14),
click LAN in the left column. The LAN window opens.
www.gateway.com
Using router settings and features
2
If the IP address and subnet mask must be changed, type the new IP address
and subnet mask in the boxes provided, otherwise leave the default
settings.
3
In the DHCP Server box, make sure that the check box is selected (default)
if you want the router to provide DHCP service to your network (by
assigning an IP address automatically to each computer on your network
when they sign on). Click the box to remove the check only if you have
another router or DHCP server on your network providing this service.
The Start IP Address is the first IP address assigned by the router. Subsequent
IP addresses will increment by one until all addresses are assigned (up to
the Finish IP Address). The first three fields are assigned by the router to
match the router’s IP address and function correctly in the LAN.
The Finish IP Address is the last IP address assigned by the router. It
determines the maximum number of IP addresses that can be assigned by
the router. The first three fields are assigned by the router to match the
router’s IP address and function correctly in the LAN.

Ping utility
You can use the ping utility to help determine whether a connection has been
established on a network or to determine a numerical IP address
(xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) based on an alphanumeric Internet or Web address such as
www.gateway.com.
Also, your router may have difficulty sending and receiving e-mail or
connecting to the Internet if your ISP’s mail and server addresses are configured
with single words, such as “mail,” “home,” or “pop3”. The router has no way
to resolve these abbreviated addresses to the actual IP and Web addresses
required for connection. The ping utility can help you find out the required
addresses.
To use the ping utility to obtain an IP address:
1
2
3
4
Turn on your computer, the router, and the DSL or cable modem.
Click Start, then click Run. Type command in the Open box, then click OK.
At the command prompt, type ping followed by the single word or verbal
address you want resolved (for example “ping mail”), then press ENTER.
The ping utility returns the actual IP address of the “mail” server (in this
case 64.8.50.100). Write down this number.
This number works as the IP address of your ISP’s e-mail server.
Unfortunately, this number may change at some point, so it may be
necessary to further resolve the number to determine the actual web
address of the server. The web address probably will not change.
58
www.gateway.com
Ping utility
In the above example, note the line that states “Pinging mail.adelphia.net
[64.8.50.100] with 32 bytes of data.” In this case “mail.adelphia.net” is the
actual Web address of the mail server and does not need to be resolved.
Write down this Web address and use it to replace your ISP’s one word mail
server address (in your Web browser or e-mail program).
However, if the ping utility returned only the IP address, you will need to
determine the Web address.
To resolve an IP address:
1
With the ping utility still active, type ping -a 64.8.50.100, (64.8.50.100
is the IP address returned from pinging “mail”), then press ENTER.
2
The ping utility returns several lines of information, including one that

Setting a static IP address
Typically, the computers on your network are set to obtain an IP address
dynamically (using the DHCP server function of the router) whenever they
contact your local network. However, in certain cases, such as DMZ hosting or

Glossary
A
This appendix provides information on terms that relate to
routers and networking.
71
Appendix A: Glossary
Terms you should know
adapter (network) - A circuit board that plugs into a computer to let the
computer connect to a network.
beacon interval - A beacon is a periodic broadcast by the router to keep the
network synchronized. The interval indicates how often the router broadcasts
the beacon.
broadband - When multiple signals or channels (such as voice, data, and video)
share the bandwidth of a single medium.
browser - A program running on a computer which makes it possible to view
and interact with the Internet.
cable modem - A broadband device that uses a coaxial cable to connect to an
ISP to access the Internet.
CAT 5 - The minimum standard of twisted-pair cable suitable for data
transmission over a computer network.
data packet - A unit of transmitted data. For more information, see “packet.”
default gateway - A routing device that forwards data over a local network.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) - DHCP lets a router or access
point router temporarily assign an IP address to a computer on the network.
DMZ (demilitarized zone) - DMZ hosting lets a single computer on your LAN
expose all of its ports to the Internet. When you set up DMZ hosting on a
computer, you bypass the security provided by a router. Consider port forwarding
as an alternative to DMZ hosting.
DNS - A database that translates and stores domain and host names as IP
addresses.
domain - A set of IP addresses usually “owned” by a company. For example,
in an e-mail address the name of the domain comes after the @ symbol.
DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) - A broadband Internet connection that uses an
ordinary telephone line to provide a fast, “always on” connection to the
Internet.
72
www.gateway.com
Terms you should know
DTIM (Delivery Traffic Indication Message) - A message sent by the router
to a wireless network device to indicate when the next broadcast or multicast
message will be sent. This parameter is necessary to accommodate devices using
power save mode.
dynamic IP address - An IP address that is temporarily assigned by a DHCP
server. Many ISPs use dynamic IP addresses. When a computer connects the
Internet, an ISP provides an IP address. When the computer disconnects from
the Internet, the ISP reassigns the dynamic IP address to another computer
requesting Internet access.
dynamic routing - In dynamic routing, a router is configured to automatically
generate routing information and share the information with neighboring
routers.
encryption - The translation of data into a secret code. Encryption is the most
effective way to achieve data security. To read an encrypted file, you must have
the encryption key (code) associated with the encrypted data. Encryption is
especially useful when you are using a wireless network because it prevents
outsiders from accessing data. Each computer on a wireless network must use
the same encryption code.
Ethernet - Ethernet is a common technology used to create computer networks.
Wired Ethernet uses cables to link computers, hubs, switches, routers. Wireless
Ethernet uses radio waves to create links.
firmware - Firmware is programming that is inserted into programmable
read-only memory (programmable ROM), thus becoming a permanent part of
a computing device. Firmware cannot be modified by a user. Updating firmware
requires a special program usually provided by the hardware manufacturer.
fragmentation - The process of breaking data into small segments for
transmitting. When the segments are received, the data is defragmented and
returned to its original format.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) - A simple method of transferring files from one
computer to another.
Gateway - A system that joins two networks together.
hardware - Physical equipment as opposed to software. A router is a hardware
device.
HTTP (HyperText Transport Protocol) - A system that lets Web browsers and
Web servers communicate.
hub - A hardware device that joins multiple computers to create a network.
www.gateway.com
73
Appendix A: Glossary
IP address - A a number that uniquely identifies a computer on the network.
IPSec (Internet Protocol Security) - A standard method for providing data
confidentiality, integrity, and the authentication between participating hosts.
ISP (Internet service provider) - A company that provides access to the
Internet. Most ISPs also provide e-mail addresses.
LAN (local area network) - A LAN uses network hardware, such as network
adapters, hubs, cables, and wireless devices, to link multiple computers for
sharing resources, such files, printers, and an Internet connection.
MAC (Media Access Control) Address - A unique number assigned to
networking hardware, such as routers, hubs, and network interface cards by the
manufacturer.
Mbps (MegaBits Per Second) - Transfer speed of 1 million bits per second.
network - Two or more computers linked together for the purpose of sharing
resources, such as files, printers, or a Internet connection. Routers are often used
to link the device, especially if the network includes more than two computers.
packet - A unit of transmitted data. When a server sends information, such as
e-mail messages and files, through the Internet, the server divides the
information into packets that contains identifying information called headers
and footers. The system receiving the information uses the headers and footers
to reassemble the information.
passphrase - Similar to a password, a passphrase is a sequence of characters
used by the router to create encryption keys.
ping (Packet INternet Groper) - A network utility that determines if a remote
device, such as a server, can be reached on the network. For more information,
see “Ping utility” on page 58.
plug-and-play - If a device is a plug-and-play device, a computer can
automatically detect and configure the device and install the appropriate
software called a device driver.
port - A computer program using TCP/IP sends information to another
computer through a port. Ports are assigned numbers that come after a standard
IP address. Many programs hide these port numbers to reduce the complexity
of TCP/IP.
port forwarding - Port forwarding, unlike DMZ hosting, lets a single computer
on your LAN expose only one of its ports to the Internet. This type of port
exposure has more security than DMZ hosting.
74
www.gateway.com
Terms you should know
PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet) - A communications protocol
that combines the Ethernet and Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) standards. PPPoE
is sometimes used with broadband modems.
PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) - A protocol that lets a private
network connect securely to another private network through private "tunnels"
over the public Internet. This kind of interconnection is known as a virtual
private network (VPN).
protocol - A set of communication rules. When two computers or networks
use the same protocol, they can communicate with each other.
RIP (Routing Information Protocol) - A protocol used by a router to maintain
routing tables of configuration information to filter incoming and outgoing
traffic based on the IP addresses of the senders and receivers.
RJ-45 - RJ-45 jacks connect a computer to a router. In a wired network, one
end of a network cable is plugged into the RJ45 jack on a computer. The other
end of the cable is plugged into an RJ45 jack on a router. Data is passed to and
from the computer and router through the RJ45 jacks.
router - A hardware device that connects devices in a network. A router can
also provide Internet access to the networked devices.
RTS (Request To Send) - A signal sent by a receiving device, like a router, that
tells the sending device to begin transmission.
server - A computer that provides shared network service to a network. For
example, a server can provide file and printer sharing between networked
computers.
SSID (Service Set IDentifier) - In a wireless network, the SSID identifies a
network. All computer in the network must use the same SSID.
static IP address - An IP address that is permanently assigned to a device.
static routing - The routing of network information through a single, set path.
subnet mask - This number identifies what subnetwork the computer is located
on. This number is the same on all computers on a home network.
switch - Like a hub, a switch is a hardware device that links computers to create
a network. A switch provides better data routing than a hub.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) - A protocol used in connection with
Internet Protocol (IP) to let computers communicate over the Internet.
www.gateway.com
75
Appendix A: Glossary
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) - A combination of
two protocols (TCP and IP) that lets computers communicate with Web servers.
UDP (User Datagram Protocol) - UDP is a simpler, faster protocol than TCP.
UDP is used with IP. Unlike TCP, UDP drops packets without retries and packets
are received in a different order than they were sent. UDP is often used in
videoconferencing applications or games where speed is preferred over
guaranteed message delivery.
upgrade - An addition or update to a program that provides additional features
or “fixes.”
URL (Uniform Resource Locator) - A standard method of specifying a Web
location, for example the URL for Gateway is www.gateway.com. Also called a
Web address.
VPN (Virtual Private Network) - A private network link that lets a computer
communicate with another network over the Internet. VPNs usually use
encryption to provide secure communication.
WAN (Wide Area Network) - A network that provides data communications
to a large number of independent users spread over a large geographic area. A
WAN often links several networks. The Internet is a WAN.
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) - A protocol that adds security to wireless
local area networks (WLANs). WEP uses encryption to provide security.
