LIMITED WARRANTY
Limited Warranty Statement: SMC Networks, Inc. (“SMC”) warrants its products to be free from
defects in workmanship and materials, under normal use and service, for the applicable warranty
term. All SMC products carry a standard 90-day limited warranty from the date of purchase from
SMC or its Authorized Reseller. SMC may, at its own discretion, repair or replace any product not
operating as warranted with a similar or functionally equivalent product, during the applicable
warranty term. SMC will endeavor to repair or replace any product returned under warranty within 30
days of receipt of the product. The standard limited warranty can be upgraded to a Limited Lifetime*
warranty by registering new products within 30 days of purchase from SMC or its Authorized
Reseller. Registration can be accomplished via the enclosed product registration card or online via
the SMC website. Failure to register will not affect the standard limited warranty. The Limited
Lifetime warranty covers a product during the Life of that Product, which is defined as the period of
time during which the product is an “Active” SMC product. A product is considered to be “Active”
while it is listed on the current SMC price list. As new technologies emerge, older technologies
become obsolete and SMC will, at its discretion, replace an older product in its product line with one
that incorporates these newer technologies. At that point, the obsolete product is discontinued and is
no longer an “Active” SMC product. A list of discontinued products with their respective dates of
discontinuance can be found at: http://www.smc.com/index.cfm?action=customer_service_warranty.
All products that are replaced become the property of SMC. Replacement products may be either
new or reconditioned. Any replaced or repaired product carries either a 30-day limited warranty or
the remainder of the initial warranty, whichever is longer. SMC is not responsible for any custom
software or firmware, configuration information, or memory data of Customer contained in, stored
on, or integrated with any products returned to SMC pursuant to any warranty. Products returned to
SMC should have any customer-installed accessory or add-on components, such as expansion
modules, removed prior to returning the product for replacement. SMC is not responsible for these
items if they are returned with the product. Customers must contact SMC for a Return Material
Authorization number prior to returning any product to SMC. Proof of purchase may be required.
Any product returned to SMC without a valid Return Material Authorization (RMA) number clearly
marked on the outside of the package will be returned to customer at customer’s expense. For
warranty claims within North America, please call our toll-free customer support number at (800)
762-4968. Customers are responsible for all shipping charges from their facility to SMC. SMC is
responsible for return shipping charges from SMC to customer.
WARRANTIES EXCLUSIVE: IF AN SMC PRODUCT DOES NOT OPERATE AS WARRANTED
ABOVE, CUSTOMER’S SOLE REMEDY SHALL BE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE
PRODUCT IN QUESTION, AT SMC’S OPTION. THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES AND
REMEDIES ARE EXCLUSIVE AND ARE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, EITHER IN FACT OR BY OPERATION OF LAW,
STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF

CUSTOMER’S OR ANY THIRD PERSON’S MISUSE, NEGLECT, IMPROPER INSTALLATION OR
TESTING, UNAUTHORIZED ATTEMPTS TO REPAIR, OR ANY OTHER CAUSE BEYOND THE
RANGE OF THE INTENDED USE, OR BY ACCIDENT, FIRE, LIGHTNING, OR OTHER HAZARD.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: IN NO EVENT, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT OR TORT
(INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), SHALL SMC BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL,

AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL
RIGHTS, WHICH MAY VARY FROM STATE TO STATE. NOTHING IN THIS WARRANTY SHALL

Wireless LAN Networking
This section provides background information on wireless LAN networking technology. Consult
the Glossary for definitions of the terminology used in this section.
THE INFORMATION IN THIS SECTION IS FOR YOUR REFERENCE. CHANGING
NETWORK SETTINGS AND PARTICULARLY SECURITY SETTTINGS SHOULD ONLY
BE DONE BY AN AUTHORIZED ADMINISTRATOR.
Transmission Rate (Transfer Rate)
The SMCWGBR14-N provides various transmission (data) rate options for you to select. In most
networking scenarios, the factory default Best (automatic) setting proves the most efficient. This
setting allows your SMCWGBR14-N to operate at the maximum transmission (data) rate. When
the communication quality drops below a certain level, the SMCWGBR14-N automatically
switches to a lower transmission (data) rate. Transmission at lower data speeds is usually more
reliable. However, when the communication quality improves again, the SMCWGBR14-N gradually
increases the transmission (data) rate again until it reaches the highest available transmission
rate.
Types of Wireless Networks
Wireless LAN networking works in either of the two modes: ad-hoc and infrastructure. In infrastructure mode, wireless devices communicate to a wired LAN via access points. Each access
point and its wireless devices are known as a Basic Service Set (BSS). An Extended Service Set
(ESS) is two or more BSSs in the same subnet. In ad hoc mode (also known as peer-to-peer
mode), wireless devices communicate with each other directly and do not use an access point.
This is an Independent BSS (IBSS).
To connect to a wired network within a coverage area using access points, set the operation mode
to Infrastructure (BSS). To set up an independent wireless workgroup without an access point, use
Ad-hoc (IBSS) mode.
A D -H OC (IBSS) N ETWORK
Ad-hoc mode does not require an access point or a wired network. Two or more wireless stations
communicate directly to each other. An ad-hoc network may sometimes be referred to as an
Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS).
To set up an ad-hoc network, configure all the stations in ad-hoc mode. Use the same SSID and
5
channel for each station.
6
When a number of wireless stations are connected using a single access point, you have a Basic
Service Set (BSS).
In the ESS diagram below, communication is done through the access points, which relay data
packets to other wireless stations or devices connected to the wired network. Wireless stations
can then access resources, such as a printer, on the wired network.
7
In an ESS environment, users are able to move from one access point to another without losing the
connection. In the diagram below, when the user moves from BSS (1) to BSS (2) the WLAN client
devices automatically switches to the channel used in BSS (2).

Introduction
The Barricade™ N Draft 11n Gigabit Broadband Router (SMCWGBR14-N) is the perfect all-in-one
networking solution for connecting and sharing your high speed cable/xDSL internet connection.
Designed for the home and office, this platform independent multi-functional router combines a 4-port
10/100/1000 LAN switch, high speed Wireless-N (draft 802.11n) access point, NAT firewall with
Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI), Intelligent stream handling technology, a Multi-function print server
and a User friendly web-based management interface in one convenient device.
The built-in wireless access point is 802.11n draft v2.0 compliant while maintaining full backwards
compatibility with the Wireless-G (802.11g) and Wireless-B (802.11b) standards. This next generation
wireless networking standard utilizes advanced MIMO (Multiple-In, Multiple-Out) technology to deliver
incredible speed and range. With wireless speeds up to 300Mbps and extended coverage, there is
enough bandwidth to simultaneously stream video and audio, play online games, transfer large files,
make VoIP calls and surf the Internet. With security being a key consideration, SMCWGBR14-N
supports the latest WPA and WPA2 wireless encryption standards, which prevent unauthorized
access to wireless networks and ensure data is secure. Wireless security can also be set up easily
using Wi-Fi Protected SetupTM (WPS) that enables push button or PIN configuration. The 4-port
10/100/1000 LAN switch is ideal for connecting Gigabit Ethernet devices, such as Network Attached
Storage (NAS), and transferring large files or streaming media content at up to gigabit speeds.
The integrated NAT firewall with SPI provides protection from hackers and Denial of Service attacks
by analyzing individual data packets, to ensure that only authorized packets are allowed access to the
network. Using the Access Control feature parents or network administrators can block certain
websites, limit web access based on time or dates, and/or block internet access for applications like
P2P utilities or games. Intelligent stream handling technology automatically manages and prioritizes
the flow of time-sensitive data in your local network and going to the Internet, without the need for end
user configuration. As a result time-sensitive applications like online gaming and video, run smoothly
without lag and breakup problems. We’ve also included a USB2.0 multi-function print server which
supports both printing and scanning*. The print server has been designed with ease-of-use at the
forefront and can be setup in minutes using the printer installation wizard. Scanning and saving of
documents is performed using a web-based interface so there is no need to install scanning software
on each computer. Finally, configuration of your internet connection and advanced router functions is
made simple and straightforward with the EZ™ Installation Wizard and intuitive web-based
management interface.

Installation Considerations
The SMCWGBR14-N lets you access your network, using a wireless connection, from virtually
anywhere within its operating range. Keep in mind, however, that the number, thickness and location
of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass through, may limit the range.
Typical ranges vary depending on the types of materials and background RF (radio frequency) noise
in your home or business. The key to maximizing wireless range is to follow these basic guidelines:
1
Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the SMCWGBR14-N and other network
devices to a minimum - each wall or ceiling can reduce your wireless product’s range from
3-90 feet (1-30 meters.) Position your devices so that the number of walls or ceilings is
minimized.
2
Be aware of the direct line between network devices. A wall that is 1.5 feet thick (.5 meters), at
a 45-degree angle appears to be almost 3 feet (1 meter) thick. At a 2-degree angle it looks
over 42 feet (14 meters) thick! Position devices so that the signal will travel straight through a
wall or ceiling (instead of at an angle) for better reception.
3
Building Materials can impede the wireless signal - a solid metal door or aluminum studs may
have a negative effect on range. Try to position wireless devices and computers with wireless
adapters so that the signal passes through drywall or open doorways and not other materials.
4
Keep your product away (at least 3-6 feet or 1-2 meters) from electrical devices or appliances
that generate extreme RF noise.
Getting Started
For a typical home setup, you will need a Broadband (Cable/xDSL) Internet service and Modem
with Ethernet connection. Consult with your Cable or xDSL provider for proper installation of the
modem. Please do the following:
1. Connect your Broadband modem (Cable/xDSL) to the blue WAN port on the Barricade™
2. Connect the network card of your PC to the yellow LAN port on the Barricade™ using the
yellow RJ-45 cable provided. Now connect the power adapter.
3. Reboot PC. Start web browser and enter address http://192.168.2.1. When prompted enter
password smcadmin then click [Log In]. Note: The User Name must be set to Admin.
4. Click [BASIC], then [Setup Wizard], then [Launch Internet Connection Setup Wizard]. Follow
the on screen instructions to complete the set-up and reboot the Barricade™. You are now
ready to enjoy your Internet connection.

16
Basic_Wireless
The wireless section is used to configure the wireless settings for your router. Note that changes made
in this section may also need to be duplicated on wireless clients that you want to connect to your
wireless network.
To protect your privacy, use the wireless security mode to configure the wireless security
features. This device supports three wireless security modes including: WEP, WPA-Personal,
and WPA-Enterprise. WEP is the original wireless encryption standard. WPA-Enterprise
provides a higher level of security. WPA-Personal does not require an authentication server.
The WPA-Enterprise option requires a RADIUS authentication server.
17
Enable Wireless
This option allows you to enable/disable the wireless AP function. The wireless can also be
turned ON/OFF by the slide switch on the back panel. When the wireless is enabled, the
following parameters are in effect.
Wireless Network Name
When you are browsing for available wireless networks, this is the name that will appear in the
list (unless Visibility Status is set to Invisible, see below). This name is also referred to as the
SSID. For security purposes, it is highly recommended to change from the pre-configured
network name.
Enable Auto Channel Scan
If you select this option, the router automatically finds the channel with least interference and
uses that channel for wireless networking. If you disable this option, the router uses the
channel that you specify with the following Wireless Channel option.
Wireless Channel
A wireless network uses specific channels in the wireless spectrum to handle communication
between clients. Some channels in your area may have interference from other electronic
devices. Choose the clearest channel to help optimize the performance and coverage of your
wireless network.
802.11 Mode
If all of the wireless devices you want to connect with this router can connect in the same
transmission mode, you can improve performance slightly by choosing the appropriate "Only"
mode. If you have some devices that use a different transmission mode, choose the
appropriate "Mixed" mode.
Channel Width
The "Auto 20/40 MHz" option is usually best. The other options are available for special
circumstances. Note that when 20/40MHz option is selected, an extended channel will be used
to extend the data rate.
Transmission Rate
By default the fastest possible transmission rate will be selected. You have the option of
selecting the speed if necessary.
Visibility Status
The Invisible option allows you to hide your wireless network. When this option is set to Visible,
your wireless network name is broadcast to anyone within the range of your signal. If you're not
using encryption then they could connect to your network. When Invisible mode is enabled,
you must enter the Wireless Network Name (SSID) on the client manually to connect to the
network.
Security Mode (NONE, WEP, WPA-Personal, WPA-Enterprise)
Unless one of these encryption modes is selected, wireless transmissions to and from your
wireless network can be easily intercepted and interpreted by unauthorized users.
18
WEP
A method of encrypting data for wireless communication intended to provide the same level of
privacy as a wired network. WEP is not as secure as WPA encryption. To gain access to a
WEP network, you must know the key. The key is a string of characters that you create. When
using WEP, you must determine the level of encryption. The type of encryption determines the
key length. 128-bit encryption requires a longer key than 64-bit encryption. Keys are defined by
entering in a string in HEX (hexadecimal - using characters 0-9, A-F) or ASCII (American
Standard Code for Information Interchange - alphanumeric characters) format. ASCII format is
provided so you can enter a string that is easier to remember. The ASCII string is converted to
HEX for use over the network. Four keys can be defined so that you can change keys easily. A
default key is selected for use on the network.
Example:
64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (12345678FA is a valid string
of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length.
(456FBCDF123400122225271730 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit
encryption.)
64-bit ASCII keys are up to 5 characters in length (DMODE is a valid string of 5
characters for 64-bit encryption.)
128-bit ASCII keys are up to 13 characters in length (2002HALOSWIN1 is a valid string of
13 characters for 128-bit encryption.)
Note that, if you enter fewer characters in the WEP key than required, the remainder of the key
is automatically padded with zeros.
WPA-Personal and WPA-Enterprise
Both of these options select some variant of Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) -- security
standards published by the Wi-Fi Alliance. The WPA Mode further refines the variant that the
router should employ.
WPA Mode: WPA is the older standard; select this option if the clients that will be used with
the router only support the older standard. WPA2 is the newer implementation of the stronger
IEEE 802.11i security standard. With the "WPA or WPA2" option, the router tries WPA2 first,
but falls back to WPA if the client only supports WPA. The strongest cipher that the client
supports will be used. With the "WPA2 Only" option, the router associates only with clients that
also support WPA2 security. If the clients support the AES cipher, it will be used across the
wireless network to ensure best security.
Group Key Update Interval: The amount of time before the group key used for broadcast and
multicast data is changed.
WPA-Personal
This option uses Wi-Fi Protected Access with a Pre-Shared Key (PSK).
Pre-Shared Key: The key is entered as a pass-phrase of up to 63 alphanumeric characters in
ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) format at both ends of the
wireless connection. It cannot be shorter than eight characters, although for proper security it
needs to be of ample length and should not be a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used
to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.
19
Example:
Wireless Networking technology enables ubiquitous communication
WPA-Enterprise
This option works with a RADIUS Server to authenticate wireless clients. Wireless clients
should have established the necessary credentials before attempting to authenticate to the
Server through this Gateway. Furthermore, it may be necessary to configure the RADIUS
Server to allow this Gateway to authenticate users.
Authentication Timeout: Amount of time before a client will be required to re-authenticate.
RADIUS Server IP Address: The IP address of the authentication server.
RADIUS Server Port: The port number used to connect to the authentication server.
RADIUS Server Shared Secret: A pass-phrase that must match with the authentication
server.
MAC Address Authentication: If this is selected, the user must connect from the same
computer whenever logging into the wireless network.
Advanced:
Optional Backup RADIUS Server
This option enables configuration of an optional second RADIUS server. A second
RADIUS server can be used as backup for the primary RADIUS server. The second
RADIUS server is consulted only when the primary server is not available or not
responding. The fields Second RADIUS Server IP Address, RADIUS Server Port,
Second RADIUS server Shared Secret, Second MAC Address Authentication provide
the corresponding parameters for the second RADIUS Server.
20
Basic_Network Settings
Use this section to configure the internal network settings of your router. The IP Address that is
configured here is the IP Address that you use to access the Web-based management interface. If you
change the IP Address here, you may need to adjust your PC’s network settings to access the
network again.
Router Settings
These are the settings of the LAN (Local Area Network) interface for the router. The router's
local network (LAN) settings are configured based on the IP Address and Subnet Mask
assigned in this section. The IP address is also used to access this Web-based management
interface. It is recommended that you use the default settings if you do not have an existing
network.
21
IP Address
The IP address of your router on the local area network. Your local area network settings
are based on the address assigned here. For example, 192.168.2.1.
Subnet Mask
The subnet mask of your router on the local area network.
Local Domain Name
This entry is optional. Enter a domain name for the local network. The router's DHCP
server will give this domain name to the computers on the wireless LAN. So, for example,
if you enter mynetwork.net here, and you have a wireless laptop with a name of chris,
that laptop will be known as chris.mynetwork.net. Note, however, if the router's settings
specify "DHCP (Dynamic)" Address, and the router's DHCP server assigns a domain
name to the AP, that domain name will override any name you enter here.
DNS Relay
When DNS Relay is enabled, the router plays the role of a DNS server. DNS requests
sent to the router are forwarded to the ISP's DNS server. This provides a constant DNS
address that LAN computers can use, even when the router obtains a different DNS
server address from the ISP upon re-establishing the WAN connection. You should
disable DNS relay if you implement a LAN-side DNS server as a virtual server.
RIP (Routing Information Protocol)
Used to broadcast routing information among routers.
Enable RIP
Enable RIP if required by the ISP, if the LAN has multiple routers, or if the LAN has
auto-IP devices.
RIP Operating mode
This router supports both version 2 and version 1 of the RIP specification.
V1. Use if none of the routers supports Version 2.
V2 Broadcast. Use if some routers are capable of Version 2, but some are only capable
of Version 1.
V2 Multicast. Use if this is the only router on the LAN or if all the routers support Version
2.
Router Metric
The additional cost of routing a packet through this router. The normal value for a simple
network is 1. This metric is added to routes learned from other routers; it is not added to
static or system routes.
Act as default router
Make this router the preferred destination for packets that are not otherwise destined.
Allow RIP updates from WAN
For security, disable this option unless required by the ISP.

RIP Version 2 supports the use of a password to limit access to routers through the RIP
protocol. If the ISP or other LAN router requires a RIP password, enter the password here.
DHCP Server Settings
DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. The DHCP section is where you
configure the built-in DHCP Server to assign IP addresses to the computers and other devices
on your local area network (LAN).
Enable DHCP Server
Once your router is properly configured and this option is enabled, the DHCP Server will
manage the IP addresses and other network configuration information for computers and
other devices connected to your Local Area Network. There is no need for you to do this
yourself.
The computers (and other devices) connected to your LAN also need to have their TCP/IP
configuration set to "DHCP" or "Obtain an IP address automatically".
When you set Enable DHCP Server, the following options are displayed.
DHCP IP Address Range
These two IP values (from and to) define a range of IP addresses that the DHCP Server
uses when assigning addresses to computers and devices on your Local Area Network.
Any addresses that are outside of this range are not managed by the DHCP Server; these
could, therefore, be used for manually configured devices or devices that cannot use
DHCP to obtain network address details automatically.
It is possible for a computer or device that is manually configured to have an address that
does reside within this range. In this case the address should be reserved (see Static
DHCP Client below), so that the DHCP Server knows that this specific address can only
be used by a specific computer or device.
Your router, by default, has a static IP address of 192.168.2.1. This means that addresses
192.168.2.2 to 192.168.2.254 can be made available for allocation by the DHCP Server.
Example:
Your router uses 192.168.2.1 for the IP address. You've assigned a computer that you
want to designate as a Web server with a static IP address of 192.168.2.3. You've
assigned another computer that you want to designate as an FTP server with a static IP
address of 192.168.2.4. Therefore the starting IP address for your DHCP IP address
range needs to be 192.168.2.5 or greater.
Example:
Suppose you configure the DHCP Server to manage addresses From: 192.168.2.100
To: 192.168.2.199. This means that 192.168.2.3 to 192.168.2.99 and 192.168.2.200 to
192.168.2.254 are NOT managed by the DHCP Server. Computers or devices that use
addresses from these ranges are to be manually configured. Suppose you have a web
server computer that has a manually configured address of 192.168.2.100. Because
this falls within the "managed range" be sure to create a reservation for this address
and match it to the relevant computer (see Static DHCP Client below).
23
DHCP Lease Time
The amount of time that a computer may have an IP address before it is required to renew
the lease. The lease functions just as a lease on an apartment would. The initial lease
designates the amount of time before the lease expires. If the tenant wishes to retain the
address when the lease is expired then a new lease is established. If the lease expires
and the address is no longer needed than another tenant may use the address.
Always Broadcast
If all the computers on the LAN successfully obtain their IP addresses from the router's
DHCP server as expected, this option can remain disabled. However, if one of the
computers on the LAN fails to obtain an IP address from the router's DHCP server, it may
have an old DHCP client that incorrectly turns off the broadcast flag of DHCP packets.
Enabling this option will cause the router to always broadcast its responses to all clients,
thereby working around the problem, at the cost of increased broadcast traffic on the LAN.
Add/Edit DHCP Reservation
This option lets you reserve IP addresses, and assign the same IP address to the network
device with the specified MAC address any time it requests an IP address. This is almost the
same as when a device has a static IP address except that the device must still request an IP
address from the router. The router will provide the device the same IP address every time.
DHCP Reservations are helpful for server computers on the local network that are hosting
applications such as Web and FTP. Servers on your network should either use a static IP
address or use this option.
Computer Name
You can assign a name for each computer that is given a reserved IP address. This may
help you keep track of which computers are assigned this way. Example: Game Server.
IP Address:
The LAN address that you want to reserve.
MAC Address
To input the MAC address of your system, enter it in manually or connect to the router's
Web-Management interface from the system and click the Copy Your PC’s MAC
Address button.
A MAC address is usually located on a sticker on the bottom of a network device. The
MAC address is comprised of twelve digits. Each pair of hexadecimal digits are usually
separated by dashes or colons such as 00-0D-88-11-22-33 or 00:0D:88:11:22:33. If your
network device is a computer and the network card is already located inside the computer,
you can connect to the router from the computer and click the Copy Your PC’s MAC
Address button to enter the MAC address.
As an alternative, you can locate a MAC address in a specific operating system by
following the steps below:
24
Windows 98
Windows Me
Windows 2000
Windows XP
Mac OS X
Go to the Start menu, select Run, type in winipcfg, and hit Enter. A
popup window will be displayed. Select the appropriate adapter from the
pull-down menu and you will see the Adapter Address. This is the MAC
address of the device.
Go to your Start menu, select Programs, select Accessories, and select
Command Prompt. At the command prompt type ipconfig /all and hit
Enter. The physical address displayed for the adapter connecting to the
router is the MAC address.
Go to the Apple Menu, select System Preferences, select Network, and
select the Ethernet Adapter connecting to the router. Select the Ethernet
button and the Ethernet ID will be listed. This is the same as the MAC
address.
DHCP Reservations List
This shows clients that you have specified to have reserved DHCP addresses. An entry can be
changed by clicking the Edit icon, or deleted by clicking the Delete icon. When you click the
Edit icon, the item is highlighted, and the "Edit DHCP Reservation" section is activated for
editing.
Number of Dynamic DHCP Clients
In this section you can see what LAN devices are currently leasing IP addresses.
Revoke
The Revoke option is available for the situation in which the lease table becomes full or
nearly full, you need to recover space in the table for new entries, and you know that
some of the currently allocated leases are no longer needed. Clicking Revoke cancels the
lease for a specific LAN device and frees an entry in the lease table. Do this only if the
device no longer needs the leased IP address, because, for example, it has been
removed from the network.
Reserve
The Reserve option converts this dynamic IP allocation into a DHCP Reservation and
adds the corresponding entry to the DHCP Reservations List.
25
Advanced
The Advanced tab provides the following configuration options: Virtual Server, Special
Applications, Gaming, StreamEngine, Routing, Access Control, WEB Filter, MAC
Address Filter, Firewall, Inbound Filter, Advanced Wireless and Advanced Network.
Advanced_Virtual Server
The Virtual Server option gives Internet users access to services on your LAN. This feature
is useful for hosting online services such as FTP, Web, or game servers. For each Virtual
Server, you define a public port on your router for redirection to an internal LAN IP Address
and LAN port.
27
Example:
You are hosting a Web Server on a PC that has LAN IP Address of 192.168.2.50 and
your ISP is blocking Port 80.
1. Name the Virtual Server (for example: Web Server)
2. Enter the IP Address of the machine on your LAN (for example: 192.168.2.50
3. Enter the Private Port as [80]
4. Enter the Public Port as [8888]
28
5. Select the Protocol (for example TCP).
6. Ensure the schedule is set to Always
7. Click Save to add the settings to the Virtual Servers List
8. Repeat these steps for each Virtual Server Rule you wish to add. After the list
is complete, click Save Settings at the top of the page.
With this Virtual Server entry, all Internet traffic on Port 8888 will be redirected to your
internal web server on port 80 at IP Address 192.168.2.50.
Virtual Server Parameters
Name
Assign a meaningful name to the virtual server, for example Web Server.
Several well-known types of virtual server are available from the "Application
Name" drop-down list. Selecting one of these entries fills some of the remaining
parameters with standard values for that type of server.
IP Address
The IP address of the system on your internal network that will provide the
virtual service, for example 192.168.2.50. You can select a computer from the
list of DHCP clients in the "Computer Name" drop-down menu, or you can
manually enter the IP address of the server computer.
Protocol
Select the protocol used by the service. The common choices -- UDP, TCP, and
both UDP and TCP -- can be selected from the drop-down menu. To specify any
other protocol, select "Other" from the list, then enter the corresponding protocol
number ( as assigned by the IANA) in the Protocol box.
Private Port
The port that will be used on your internal network.
Public Port
The port that will be accessed from the Internet.
Inbound Filter
Select a filter that controls access as needed for this virtual server. If you do not
see the filter you need in the list of filters, go to the Advanced → Inbound Filter
screen and create a new filter.
Schedule
Select a schedule for when the service will be enabled. If you do not see the
schedule you need in the list of schedules, go to the Tools → Schedules screen
and create a new schedule.
29
Add/Edit Virtual Server
In this section you can add an entry to the Virtual Servers List below or edit an
existing entry.
Enable
Entries in the list can be either active (enabled) or inactive (disabled).
Save
Saves the new or edited virtual server entry in the following list. When finished
updating the virtual server entries, you must still click the Save Settings button
at the top of the page to make the changes effective and permanent.
Virtual Servers List
The section shows the currently defined virtual servers. A Virtual Server can be
changed by clicking the Edit icon, or deleted by clicking the Delete icon. When you
click the Edit icon, the item is highlighted, and the "Edit Virtual Server" section is
activated for editing.
You might have trouble accessing a virtual server using its public identity
(WAN-side IP-address of the gateway or its dynamic DNS name) from a
machine on the LAN. Your requests may not be looped back or you may be
redirected to the "Forbidden" page.
This will happen if you have an Access Control Rule configured for this LAN machine.
The requests from the LAN machine will not be looped back if Internet access is blocked at
the time of access. To work around this problem, access the LAN machine using its
LAN-side identity.
Requests may be redirected to the "Forbidden" page if web access for the LAN machine is
restricted by an Access Control Rule. Add the WAN-side identity (WAN-side IP-address of
the router or its dynamic DNS name) on the Advanced → Web Filter screen to work around
this problem.
30
Advanced_Special Applications
An application rule is used to open single or multiple ports on your router when the router
senses data sent to the Internet on a "trigger" port or port range. An application rule applies
to all computers on your internal network.
Parameters for an Application Rule
Example:
You need to configure your router to allow a software application running on any
computer on your network to connect to a web-based server or another user on
the Internet.
Name
Enter a name for the Special Application Rule, for example Game App, which
will help you identify the rule in the future. Alternatively, you can select from the
Application list of common applications.
31
Application
Instead of entering a name for the Special Application rule, you can select from
this list of common applications, and the remaining configuration values will be
filled in accordingly.
Trigger Port Range
Enter the outgoing port range used by your application (for example
6500-6700).
Trigger Protocol
Select the outbound protocol used by your application (for example Both).
Input Port Range
Enter the port range that you want to open up to Internet traffic (for example
6000-6200).
Input Protocol
Select the protocol used by the Internet traffic coming back into the router
through the opened port range (for example Both).
Schedule
Select a schedule for when this rule is in effect. If you do not see the schedule
you need in the list of schedules, go to the Tools → Schedules screen and
create a new schedule.
With the above example application rule enabled, the router will open up a range of
ports from 6000-6200 for incoming traffic from the Internet, whenever any computer
on the internal network opens up an application that sends data to the Internet using
a port in the range of 6500-6700.
Add/Edit Special Applications Rule
This section is where you define and edit Special Applications Rules.
Save
Saves the new or edited Special Applications Rule in the following list. When
finished updating the special applications rules, you must still click the Save
Settings button at the top of the page to make the changes effective and
permanent.
Special Applications Rules List
The section shows the currently defined special applications rules. A special
applications rule can be changed by clicking the Edit icon, or deleted by clicking the
Delete icon. When you click the Edit icon, the item is highlighted, and the "Edit
Special Applications Rule" section is activated for editing.
32
Advanced_Gaming
Multiple connections are required by some applications, such as internet games, video
conferencing, Internet telephony, and others. These applications have difficulties working
through NAT (Network Address Translation). This section is used to open multiple ports or a
range of ports in your router and redirect data through those ports to a single PC on your
network. You can enter ports in various formats:
Range (50-100)
Individual (80, 68, 888)
Mixed (1020-5000, 689)
33
Example:
Suppose you are hosting an online game server that is running on a PC with a
private IP Address of 192.168.2.50. This game requires that you open multiple ports
(6159-6180, 99) on the router so Internet users can connect.
Port Forwarding Fields
Name
Give the rule a name that is meaningful to you, for example Game Server. You can
also select from a list of popular games, and many of the remaining configuration
values will be filled in accordingly. However, you should check whether the port
values have changed since this list was created, and you must fill in the IP address
field.
IP Address
Enter the local network IP address of the system hosting the server, for example
192.168.2.50.
TCP Ports To Open
Enter the TCP ports to open (for example 6159-6180, 99).
UDP Ports To Open
Enter the UDP ports to open (for example 6159-6180, 99).
Inbound Filter
Select a filter that controls access as needed for this rule. If you do not see the filter
you need in the list of filters, go to the Advanced → Inbound Filter screen and create
a new filter.
Schedule
Select a schedule for the times when this rule is in effect. If you do not see the
schedule you need in the list of schedules, go to the Tools → Schedules screen and
create a new schedule.
With the above example values filled in and this Gaming Rule enabled, all TCP and
UDP traffic on ports 6159 through 6180 and port 99 is passed through the router and
redirected to the Internal Private IP Address of your Game Server at 192.168.2.50.
Edit/Add Game Rule
Here you can add entries to the Game Rules List below, or edit existing entries.
Enable
Each entry in Game Rules List can be active (enabled) or inactive (disabled)
Save

game rules, you must still click the Save Settings button at the top of the page to
make the changes effective and permanent.
34
Game Rules List
The section shows the currently defined game rules. A game rule can be changed by
clicking the Edit icon, or deleted by clicking the Delete icon. When you click the Edit

35
Advanced_StreamEngine
The StreamEngine feature helps improve your network gaming performance by prioritizing
the data flows of network applications.
36
37
StreamEngine Setup
Enable StreamEngine
Enable this option for better performance and experience with online games
and other interactive applications, such as VoIP.
Automatic Classification
This option is enabled by default so that your router will automatically determine
which programs should have network priority.
Dynamic Fragmentation
This option should be enabled when you have a slow Internet uplink. It helps to
reduce the impact that large low priority network packets can have on more
urgent ones by breaking the large packets into several smaller packets.
Automatic Uplink Speed
When enabled, this option causes the router to automatically measure the
useful uplink bandwidth each time the WAN interface is re-established (after a
reboot, for example).
Measured Uplink Speed
This is the uplink speed measured when the WAN interface was last
re-established. The value may be lower than that reported by your ISP as it
does not include all of the network protocol overheads associated with your
ISP's network. Typically, this figure will be between 87% and 91% of the stated
uplink speed for xDSL connections and around 5 kbps lower for cable network
connections.
Manual Uplink Speed
If Automatic Uplink Speed is disabled, this options allows you to set the uplink
speed manually. Uplink speed is the speed at which data can be transferred
from the router to your ISP. This is determined by your ISP. ISPs often specify
speed as a downlink/uplink pair; for example, 1.5Mbps/284kbps. For this
example, you would enter "284". Alternatively you can test your uplink speed
with a service such as www.dslreports.com. Note however that sites such as
DSL Reports, because they do not consider as many network protocol
overheads, will generally note speeds slightly lower than the Measured Uplink
Speed or the ISP rated speed.
Connection Type
By default, the router automatically determines whether the underlying
connection is an xDSL/Frame-relay network or some other connection type
(such as cable modem or Ethernet), and it displays the result as Detected
xDSL or Frame Relay Network. If you have an unusual network connection in
which you are actually connected via xDSL but for which you configure either
"Static" or "DHCP" in the WAN settings, setting this option to xDSL or Other
Frame Relay Network ensures that the router will recognize that it needs to
shape traffic slightly differently in order to give the best performance. Choosing
xDSL or Other Frame Relay Network causes the measured uplink speed to be
38
reported slightly lower than before on such connections, but gives much better
results.
Detected xDSL or Frame Relay Network
When Connection Type is set to Auto-detect, the automatically detected
connection type is displayed here.
StreamEngine Rules
A StreamEngine Rule identifies a specific message flow and assigns a priority to that
flow. For most applications, automatic classification will be adequate, and specific
StreamEngine Rules will not be required.
Conflicting rules are not permitted. Conflicting rules are those that share any
combination of source address/port, destination address/port, and protocol. Rejecting
conflicting rules ensures that every flow defined in a rule receives the expected
priority and avoids indeterminate prioritization that could reduce QoS effectiveness.
Name
Create a name for the rule that is meaningful to you.
Priority
The priority of the message flow is entered here -- 1 receives the highest priority
(most urgent) and 255 receives the lowest priority (least urgent). Priority 0 is
reserved. Flows that are not prioritized by any rule receive lowest priority.
Protocol
The protocol used by the messages. The common choices can be selected from
the drop-down menu. To specify any other protocol, enter its protocol number
(as assigned by the IANA) in the Protocol box.
Source IP Range
The rule applies to a flow of messages whose LAN-side IP address falls within
the range set here.
Source Port Range
The rule applies to a flow of messages whose LAN-side port number is within
the range set here.
Destination IP Range
The rule applies to a flow of messages whose WAN-side IP address falls within
the range set here.
Destination Port Range
The rule applies to a flow of messages whose WAN-side port number is within
the range set here.

Advanced_Routing
Add/Edit Route
Adds a new route to the IP routing table or edits an existing route.
Enable: Specifies whether the entry will be enabled or disabled.
Destination IP: The IP address of packets that will take this route.
Netmask: One bits in the mask specify which bits of the IP address must match.
41
Gateway: Specifies the next hop to be taken if this route is used. A gateway of
0.0.0.0 implies there is no next hop, and the IP address matched is directly
connected to the router on the interface specified: LAN or WAN.
Interface: Specifies the interface -- LAN or WAN -- that the IP packet must use to
transit out of the router, when this route is used.
Metric: The route metric is a value from 1 to 16 that indicates the cost of using this
route. A value of 1 is the lowest cost, and 15 is the highest cost. A value of 16
indicates that the route is not reachable from this router. When trying to reach a
particular destination, computers on your network will select the best route, ignoring
unreachable routes.
Save: Saves the new or edited route in the following list. When finished updating the
routing table, you must still click the Save Settings button at the top of the page to
make the changes effective and permanent.
Routes List
The section shows the current routing table entries. Certain required routes are
predefined and cannot be changed. Routes that you add can be changed by clicking
the Edit icon, or deleted by clicking the Delete icon. When you click the Edit icon, the
item is highlighted, and the "Edit Route" section is activated for editing.
42
Advanced_Access Control
The Access Control section allows you to control access in and out of devices on your
network. Use this feature as Parental Controls to only grant access to approved sites, limit
web access based on time or dates, and/or block access from applications such as
peer-to-peer utilities or games.
Enable
By default, the Access Control feature is disabled. If you need Access Control, check
this option.
When Access Control is disabled, every device on the LAN has
unrestricted access to the Internet. However, if you enable Access Control,
Internet access is restricted for those devices that have an Access Control
Policy configured for them. All other devices have unrestricted access to
the Internet.
Policy Wizard
The Policy Wizard guides you through the steps of defining each access control
policy. A policy is the "Who, What, When, and How" of access control -- whose
computer will be affected by the control, what internet addresses are controlled,
43
when will the control be in effect, and how is the control implemented. You can
define multiple policies. The Policy Wizard starts when you click the button below
and also when you edit an existing policy.
Add Policy
Click this button to start creating a new access control policy.
Policy Table
This section shows the currently defined access control policies. A policy can be
changed by clicking the Edit icon, or deleted by clicking the Delete icon. When you

the "Enable" checkbox.
44
Advanced_WEB Filter
This section is where you add the Web sites to be used for Access Control. The Web sites
listed here are used when the Web Filter option is enabled in Access Control.
The Web Filter section is one of two means by which you can specify the web sites you want
to allow. You also have the alternative of using the Sentinel Parental Controls Service, which
allows you to specify broad categories of web sites and saves you the trouble of entering
specific web site URLs. For more information about the Sentinel service, refer to
Tools → Sentinel.
Web Filter Parameters
Web Site
Enter the address of the web site that you want to allow; for example:
google.com. Do not enter the http:// preceding the address. Enter the most
inclusive domain; for example, enter u-media.com and access will be permitted
to both www.u-media.com and support.u-media.com.
Many web sites construct pages with images and content from other
web sites. Access will be forbidden if you do not enable all the web
sites used to construct a page. For example, to access
45
my.yahoo.com, you need to enable access to yahoo.com, yimg.com, and
doubleclick.net.
Add/Edit Web Site
This is where you can add Web sites to the Allowed Web Site List or change entries
in the Allowed Web Site List.
Enable
Entries in the Allowed Web Site List can be activated or deactivated with this

46
Advanced_MAC Address Filter
The MAC address filter section can be used to filter network access by machines based on
the unique MAC addresses of their network adapter(s). It is most useful to prevent
unauthorized wireless devices from connecting to your network. A MAC address is a unique
ID assigned by the manufacturer of the network adapter.
Enable MAC Address Filter
When this is enabled, computers are granted or denied network access depending
on the mode of the filter.
Misconfiguration of this feature can prevent any machine from accessing
the network. In such a situation, you can regain access by activating the
factory defaults button on the router itself.
Filter Settings
Mode
When "only allow listed machines" is selected, only computers with MAC
addresses listed in the MAC Address List are granted network access. When
47
"only deny listed machines" is selected, any computer with a MAC address
listed in the MAC Address List is refused access to the network.
Filter Wireless Clients
When this is selected, the MAC address filters will be applied to wireless
network clients.
Filter Wired Clients
When this is selected, the MAC address filters will be applied to wired network
clients.
Add/Edit MAC Address
In this section, you can add entries to the MAC Address List below, or edit existing
entries.

48
Advanced_Firewall
The router provides a tight firewall by virtue of the way NAT works. Unless you configure the
router to the contrary, the NAT does not respond to unsolicited incoming requests on any
port, thereby making your LAN invisible to Internet cyber attackers. However, some network
applications cannot run with a tight firewall. Those applications need to selectively open
ports in the firewall to function correctly. The options on this page control several ways of
opening the firewall to address the needs of specific types of applications. See also Virtual
Server, Port Forwarding, Application Rules, and UPnP for related options.
49
Firewall Settings
Enable SPI
SPI ("stateful packet inspection" also known as "dynamic packet filtering") helps
to prevent cyber attacks by tracking more state per session. It validates that the
50
traffic passing through that session conforms to the protocol. When the protocol
is TCP, SPI checks that packet sequence numbers are within the valid range for
the session, discarding those packets that do not have valid sequence numbers.
Whether SPI is enabled or not, the router always tracks TCP connection states
and ensures that each TCP packet's flags are valid for the current state.
NAT Endpoint Filtering
The NAT Endpoint Filtering options control how the router's NAT manages incoming
connection requests to ports that are already being used.
Endpoint Independent
Once a LAN-side application has created a connection through a specific port,
the NAT will forward any incoming connection requests with the same port to
the LAN-side application regardless of their origin. This is the least restrictive
option, giving the best connectivity and allowing some applications (P2P
applications in particular) to behave almost as if they are directly connected to
the Internet.
Address Restricted
The NAT forwards incoming connection requests to a LAN-side host only when
they come from the same IP address with which a connection was established.
This allows the remote application to send data back through a port different
from the one used when the outgoing session was created.
Port And Address Restricted
The NAT does not forward any incoming connection requests with the same
port address as an already establish connection.
Note that some of these options can interact with other port restrictions. Endpoint
Independent Filtering takes priority over inbound filters or schedules, so it is possible
for an incoming session request related to an outgoing session to enter through a
port in spite of an active inbound filter on that port. However, packets will be rejected
as expected when sent to blocked ports (whether blocked by schedule or by inbound
filter) for which there are no active sessions. Port and Address Restricted Filtering
ensures that inbound filters and schedules work precisely, but prevents some level of
connectivity, and therefore might require the use of port triggers, virtual servers, or
port forwarding to open the ports needed by the application. Address Restricted
Filtering gives a compromise position, which avoids problems when communicating
with certain other types of NAT router (symmetric NATs in particular) but leaves
inbound filters and scheduled access working as expected.
UDP Endpoint Filtering
Controls endpoint filtering for packets of the UDP protocol.
TCP Endpoint Filtering
Controls endpoint filtering for packets of the TCP protocol.
DMZ Host
DMZ means "Demilitarized Zone." If an application has trouble working from behind
51
the router, you can expose one computer to the Internet and run the application on
that computer.
When a LAN host is configured as a DMZ host, it becomes the destination for all
incoming packets that do not match some other incoming session or rule. If any other
ingress rule is in place, that will be used instead of sending packets to the DMZ host;
so, an active session, virtual server, active port trigger, or port forwarding rule will
take priority over sending a packet to the DMZ host. (The DMZ policy resembles a
default port forwarding rule that forwards every port that is not specifically sent
anywhere else.)
The router provides only limited firewall protection for the DMZ host. The router does
not forward a TCP packet that does not match an active DMZ session, unless it is a
connection establishment packet (SYN). Except for this limited protection, the DMZ
host is effectively "outside the firewall". Anyone considering using a DMZ host should
also consider running a firewall on that DMZ host system to provide additional
protection.
Packets received by the DMZ host have their IP addresses translated from the
WAN-side IP address of the router to the LAN-side IP address of the DMZ host.
However, port numbers are not translated; so applications on the DMZ host can
depend on specific port numbers.
The DMZ capability is just one of several means for allowing incoming requests that
might appear unsolicited to the NAT. In general, the DMZ host should be used only if
there are no other alternatives, because it is much more exposed to cyber attacks
than any other system on the LAN. Thought should be given to using other
configurations instead: a virtual server, a port forwarding rule, or a port trigger. Virtual
servers open one port for incoming sessions bound for a specific application (and
also allow port redirection and the use of ALGs). Port forwarding is rather like a
selective DMZ, where incoming traffic targeted at one or more ports is forwarded to a
specific LAN host (thereby not exposing as many ports as a DMZ host). Port
triggering is a special form of port forwarding, which is activated by outgoing traffic,
and for which ports are only forwarded while the trigger is active.
Few applications truly require the use of the DMZ host. Following are examples of
when a DMZ host might be required:
•
A host needs to support several applications that might use overlapping
ingress ports such that two port forwarding rules cannot be used because
they would potentially be in conflict.
•
To handle incoming connections that use a protocol other than ICMP, TCP,
UDP, and IGMP (also GRE and ESP, when these protocols are enabled by
the PPTP and IPSec ALGs ).
Enable DMZ
Putting a computer in the DMZ may expose that computer to a
variety of security risks. Use of this option is only recommended as
a last resort.
52
DMZ IP Address
Specify the LAN IP address of the LAN computer that you want to have
unrestricted Internet communication. If this computer obtains its address
Automatically using DHCP, then you may want to make a static reservation on
the Basic → Network Settings page so that the IP address of the DMZ computer
does not change.
Non-UDP/TCP/ICMP LAN Sessions
When a LAN application that uses a protocol other than UDP, TCP, or ICMP initiates
a session to the Internet, the router's NAT can track such a session, even though it
does not recognize the protocol. This feature is useful because it enables certain
applications (most importantly a single VPN connection to a remote host) without the
need for an ALG.
Note that this feature does not apply to the DMZ host (if one is enabled). The DMZ
host always handles these kinds of sessions.
Enable
Enabling this option (the default setting) enables single VPN connections to a
remote host. (But, for multiple VPN connections, the appropriate VPN ALG must
be used.) Disabling this option, however, only disables VPN if the appropriate
VPN ALG is also disabled.
Application Level Gateway (ALG) Configuration
Here you can enable or disable ALGs. Some protocols and applications require
special handling of the IP payload to make them work with network address
translation (NAT). Each ALG provides special handling for a specific protocol or
application. A number of ALGs for common applications are enabled by default.
PPTP
Allows multiple machines on the LAN to connect to their corporate networks
using PPTP protocol. When the PPTP ALG is enabled, LAN computers can
establish PPTP VPN connections either with the same or with different VPN
servers. When the PPTP ALG is disabled, the router allows VPN operation in a
restricted way -- LAN computers are typically able to establish VPN tunnels to
different VPN Internet servers but not to the same server. The advantage of
disabling the PPTP ALG is to increase VPN performance. Enabling the PPTP
ALG also allows incoming VPN connections to a LAN side VPN server (refer to
Virtual Server).
IPSec (VPN)
Allows multiple VPN clients to connect to their corporate networks using IPSec.
Some VPN clients support traversal of IPSec through NAT. This option may
interfere with the operation of such VPN clients. If you are having trouble
connecting with your corporate network, try disabling this option.
Check with the system administrator of your corporate network whether your
VPN client supports NAT traversal.
Note that L2TP VPN connections typically use IPSec to secure the connection.
53
To achieve multiple VPN pass-through in this case, the IPSec ALG must be
enabled.
RTSP
Allows applications that use Real Time Streaming Protocol to receive streaming
media from the internet. QuickTime and Real Player are some of the common
applications using this protocol.
Windows/MSN Messenger
Supports use on LAN computers of Microsoft Windows Messenger (the Internet
messaging client that ships with Microsoft Windows) and MSN Messenger. The
SIP ALG must also be enabled when the Windows Messenger ALG is enabled.
FTP
Allows FTP clients and servers to transfer data across NAT. Refer to the
Advanced → Virtual Server page if you want to host an FTP server.
H.323 (Netmeeting)
Allows H.323 (specifically Microsoft Netmeeting) clients to communicate across
NAT. Note that if you want your buddies to call you, you should also set up a
virtual server for NetMeeting. Refer to the Advanced → Virtual Server page for
information on how to set up a virtual server.
SIP
Allows devices and applications using VoIP (Voice over IP) to communicate
across NAT. Some VoIP applications and devices have the ability to discover
NAT devices and work around them. This ALG may interfere with the operation
of such devices. If you are having trouble making VoIP calls, try turning this ALG
off.
Wake-On-LAN
This feature enables forwarding of "magic packets" (that is, specially formatted
wake-up packets) from the WAN to a LAN computer or other device that is
"Wake on LAN" (WOL) capable. The WOL device must be defined as such on
the Advanced → Virtual Server page. The LAN IP address for the virtual server
is typically set to the broadcast address 192.168.2.255. The computer on the
LAN whose MAC address is contained in the magic packet will be awakened.
MMS
Allows Windows Media Player, using MMS protocol, to receive streaming media
from the internet.
54
Advanced_Inbound Filter
When you use the Virtual Server, Gaming, or Remote Administration features to open
specific ports to traffic from the Internet, you could be increasing the exposure of your LAN
to cyber attacks from the Internet. In these cases, you can use Inbound Filters to limit that
exposure by specifying the IP addresses of internet hosts that you trust to access your LAN
through the ports that you have opened. You might, for example, only allow access to a
game server on your home LAN from the computers of friends whom you have invited to
play the games on that server.
Inbound Filters can be used for limiting access to a server on your network to a system or
group of systems. Filter rules can be used with Virtual Server, Gaming, or Remote
Administration features. Each filter can be used for several functions; for example a "Game
Clan" filter might allow all of the members of a particular gaming group to play several
different games for which gaming entries have been created. At the same time an "Admin"
filter might only allows systems from your office network to access the WAN admin pages
and an FTP server you use at home. If you add an IP address to a filter, the change is
effected in all of the places where the filter is used.
55
Add/Edit Inbound Filter Rule
Here you can add entries to the Inbound Filter Rules List below, or edit existing
entries.
Name
Enter a name for the rule that is meaningful to you.
Action
The rule can either Allow or Deny messages.
Source IP Range
Define the ranges of Internet addresses this rule applies to. For a single IP
address, enter the same address in both the Start and End boxes. Up to eight
56
ranges can be entered. The Enable checkbox allows you to turn on or off
specific entries in the list of ranges.
Save
Saves the new or edited Inbound Filter Rule in the following list. When finished
updating the Inbound Filter Rules List, you must still click the Save Settings
button at the top of the page to make the changes effective and permanent.
Inbound Filter Rules List
The section lists the current Inbound Filter Rules. An Inbound Filter Rule can be
changed by clicking the Edit icon, or deleted by clicking the Delete icon. When you
click the Edit icon, the item is highlighted, and the "Edit Inbound Filter Rule" section
is activated for editing.
In addition to the filters listed here, two predefined filters are available wherever
inbound filters can be applied:
Allow All
Permit any WAN user to access the related capability.
Deny All
Prevent all WAN users from accessing the related capability. (LAN users are
not affected by Inbound Filter Rules.)
57
Advanced_Advanced Wireless
Transmit Power
Normally the wireless transmitter operates at 100% power. In some circumstances,
however, there might be a need to isolate specific frequencies to a smaller area. By
reducing the power of the radio, you can prevent transmissions from reaching
beyond your corporate/home office or designated wireless area.
Beacon Period
Beacons are packets sent by a wireless router to synchronize wireless devices.
Specify a Beacon Period value between 20 and 1000. The default value is set to 100
milliseconds.
RTS Threshold
This setting should remain at its default value of 2346. If you encounter inconsistent
data flow, only minor modifications to the value are recommended.
58
Fragmentation Threshold
This setting should remain at its default value of 2346. Setting the Fragmentation
value too low may result in poor performance.
DTIM Interval
A DTIM is a countdown informing clients of the next window for listening to broadcast
and multicast messages. When the wireless router has buffered broadcast or
multicast messages for associated clients, it sends the next DTIM with a DTIM
Interval value. Wireless clients detect the beacons and awaken to receive the
broadcast and multicast messages. The default value is 1. Valid settings are
between 1 and 255.
Short GI
Using a short (400ns) guard interval can increase throughput. However, it can also
increase error rate in some installations, due to increased sensitivity to
radio-frequency reflections. Select the option that works best for your installation.
Extra Wireless Protection
Extra protection for neighboring 11b wireless networks. Turn this option off to reduce
the adverse effect of legacy wireless networks on 802.11ng performance.
WDS Enable
When WDS is enabled, this access point functions as a wireless repeater and is able
to wirelessly communicate with other APs via WDS links. Note that WDS is
incompatible with WPA -- both features cannot be used at the same time. A WDS
link is bidirectional; so this AP must know the MAC Address (creates the WDS link)
of the other AP, and the other AP must have a WDS link back to this AP. Make sure
the APs are configured with same channel number.
WDS AP MAC Address
Specifies one-half of the WDS link. The other AP must also have the MAC address
of this AP to create the WDS link back to this AP. Enter a MAC address for each of
the other APs that you want to connect with WDS.
59
Advanced_Network
UPnP
UPnP is short for Universal Plug and Play, which is a networking architecture that
provides compatibility among networking equipment, software, and peripherals. This
router has optional UPnP capability, and can work with other UPnP devices and
software.
Enable UPnP
If you need to use the UPnP functionality, you can enable it here.
WAN Ping
Pinging public WAN IP addresses is a common method used by hackers to test
whether your WAN IP address is valid.
Enable WAN Ping Respond
60
If you leave this option unchecked, you are causing the router to ignore ping
commands for the public WAN IP address of the router.
WAN Port Speed
Normally, this is set to "auto". If you have trouble connecting to the WAN, try the
other settings.
Multicast Streams
The router uses the IGMP protocol to support efficient multicasting -- transmission of
identical content, such as multimedia, from a source to a number of recipients.
Enable Multicast Streams
This option must be enabled if any applications on the LAN participate in a
multicast group. If you have a multimedia LAN application that is not receiving
content as expected, try enabling this option.
Advanced_WISH
WISH is short for Wireless Intelligent Stream Handling, a technology developed to enhance
your experience of using a wireless network by prioritizing the traffic of different applications.
61
WISH
Enable WISH
Enable this option if you want to allow WISH to prioritize your traffic.
Priority Classifiers
HTTP
Allows the router to recognize HTTP transfers for many common audio and
video streams and prioritize them above other traffic. Such streams are
frequently used by digital media players.
62
Windows Media Center
Enables the router to recognize certain audio and video streams generated
by a Windows Media Center PC and to prioritize these above other traffic.
Such streams are used by systems known as Windows Media Extenders,
such as the Xbox 360.
Automatic
When enabled, this option causes the router to automatically attempt to
prioritize traffic streams that it doesn't otherwise recognize, based on the
behaviour that the streams exhibit. This acts to deprioritize streams that
exhibit bulk transfer characteristics, such as file transfers, while leaving
interactive traffic, such as gaming or VoIP, running at a normal priority.
Add/Edit WISH Rule
A WISH Rule identifies a specific message flow and assigns a priority to that flow.
For most applications, the priority classifiers ensure the right priorities and specific
WISH Rules are not required.
WISH supports overlaps between rules. If more than one rule matches for a specific
message flow, the rule with the highest priority will be used.
Enable
Specifies whether the entry will be active or inactive.
Name
Create a name for the rule that is meaningful to you.
Priority
The priority of the message flow is entered here. Four priorities are defined:
•
BK: Background (least urgent).
•
BE: Best Effort.
•
VI: Video.
•
VO: Voice (most urgent).
Protocol
The protocol used by the messages.
63
Host 1 IP Range
The rule applies to a flow of messages for which one computer's IP address
falls within the range set here.
Host 1 Port Range
The rule applies to a flow of messages for which host 1's port number is
within the range set here.
Host 2 IP Range
The rule applies to a flow of messages for which the other computer's IP
address falls within the range set here.
Host 2 Port Range
The rule applies to a flow of messages for which host 2's port number is
within the range set here.
Save/Update
Record the changes you have made into the following list.
Clear
Re-initialize this area of the screen, discarding any changes you have made.
WISH Rules
This section lists the defined WISH Rules. Click the Enable checkbox at the left to
directly activate or de-activate the entry. An entry can be changed by clicking the Edit
icon or can be deleted by clicking the Delete icon. When you click the Edit icon, the
item is highlighted, and the "Edit WISH Rule" section is activated for editing.
64
Advanced_Wi-Fi PROTECTED SETUP
Wi-Fi Protected Setup
Enable
Enable the Wi-Fi Protected Setup feature.
Lock Wireless Security Settings
Locking the wireless security settings prevents the settings from being
changed by any new external registrar using its PIN. Devices can still be
added to the wireless network using Wi-Fi Protected Setup. It is still possible
to change wireless network settings with Manual Wireless Network Setup, or
Wireless Network Setup Wizard, or an existing external WLAN Manager
Registrar.
65
PIN Settings
A PIN is a unique number that can be used to add the router to an existing network
or to create a new network. The default PIN is printed on the bottom of the router.
For extra security, a new PIN can be generated. You can restore the default PIN at
any time. Only the Administrator ("admin" account) can change or reset the PIN.
Current PIN
Shows the current value of the router's PIN.
Reset PIN to Default
Restore the default PIN of the router.
Generate New PIN
Create a random number that is a valid PIN. This becomes the router's PIN.
You can then copy this PIN to the user interface of the registrar.
Add Wireless Station
This Wizard helps you add wireless devices to the wireless network.
The wizard will either display the wireless network settings to guide you through
manual configuration, prompt you to enter the PIN for the device, or ask you to press
the configuration button on the device. If the device supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup
and has a configuration button, you can add it to the network by pressing the
configuration button on the device and then on the router within 60 seconds. The
WPS status LED on the router will become solid if the device has been successfully
added to the network.
There are several ways to add a wireless device to your network. Access to the
wireless network is controlled by a “registrar”. A registrar only allows devices onto
the wireless network if you have entered the PIN, or pressed a special Wi-Fi
Protected Setup button on the device. The router acts as a registrar for the network,
although other devices may act as a registrar as well.
Add Wireless Device Wizard
Start the wizard.
66
Tools
The Tools tab provides the following configuration options: Admin, Time, Syslog, Email
Settings, System, Firmware, Dynamic DNS, Windows Connect Now, System Check &
Schedules.
Tools_Admin
The Admin option is used to set a password for access to the Web-based management. By
default there is no password configured. It is highly recommended that you create a
password to keep your new router secure.
67
Admin Password
Enter a password for the user "admin", who will have full access to the Web-based
management interface.
User Password
Enter a password for the user "user", who will have read-only access to the
Web-based management interface.
Gateway Name
The name of the router can be changed here.
68
Enable Remote Management
Enabling Remote Management allows you to manage the router from anywhere on
the Internet. Disabling Remote Management allows you to manage the router only
from computers on your LAN.
Remote Admin Port
The port that you will use to address the management interface from the Internet. For
example, if you specify port 1080 here, then, to access the router from the Internet,
you would use a URL of the form: http://my.domain.com:1080/.
Remote Admin Inbound Filter
Select a filter that controls access as needed for this admin port. If you do not see
the filter you need in the list of filters, go to the Advanced → Inbound Filter screen
and create a new filter.
69
Tools_Time
The Time Configuration option allows you to configure, update, and maintain the correct
time on the router's internal system clock. From this section you can set the time zone that
you are in and set the Time Server. Daylight saving can also be configured to automatically
adjust the time when needed.
Time Configuration
Current Router Time
Displays the time currently maintained by the router. If this is not correct, use
the following options to configure the time correctly.
70
Time Zone
Select your local time zone from pull down menu.
Enable Daylight Saving
Check this option if your location observes daylight saving time.
Daylight Saving Offset
Select the time offset, if your location observes daylight saving time.
DST Start and DST End
Select the starting and ending times for the change to and from daylight saving
time. For example, suppose for DST Start you select Month="Oct", Week="3rd",
Day="Sun" and Time="2am". This is the same as saying: "Daylight saving starts
on the third Sunday of October at 2:00 AM."
Automatic Time Configuration
Enable NTP Server
Select this option if you want to synchronize the router's clock to a Network
Time Server over the Internet. If you are using schedules or logs, this is the best
way to ensure that the schedules and logs are kept accurate.
NTP Server Used
Select a Network Time Server for synchronization. You can type in the address
of a time server or select one from the list. If you have trouble using one server,
select another.
Set the Date and Time Manually
If you do not have the NTP Server option in effect, you can either manually set the
time for your router here, or you can click the Copy Your Computer’s Time
Settings button to copy the time from the computer you are using. (Make sure that
computer's time is set correctly.)
If the router loses power for any reason, it cannot keep its clock running, and will
not have the correct time when it is started again. To maintain correct time for
schedules and logs, either you must enter the correct time after you restart the
router, or you must enable the NTP Server option.
71
Tools_Syslog
This section allows you to archive your log files to a Syslog Server.
Enable Logging to Syslog Server
Enable this option if you have a syslog server currently running on the LAN and wish
to send log messages to it.

router and the most recent upgrade that is available.
Check Online
This option will check support site to see if you have the latest version of the
firmware available. If a newer version is available, download instructions will be
displayed.
76
Firmware Upgrade
Firmware upgrade cannot be performed from a wireless device. To
perform an upgrade, ensure that you are using a PC that is connected
the router by wire.
to
Some firmware upgrades reset the configuration options to the factory
defaults. Before performing an upgrade, be sure to save the current
configuration from the Tools -> Admin screen.
Upload
Once you have a firmware update on your computer, use this option to browse
for the file and then upload the information into the router.
77
Tools_Dynamic DNS
The Dynamic DNS feature allows you to host a server (Web, FTP, Game Server, etc.) using
a domain name that you have purchased (www.whateveryournameis.com) with your
dynamically assigned IP address. Most broadband Internet Service Providers assign
dynamic (changing) IP addresses. When you use a Dynamic DNS service provider, your
friends can enter your host name to connect to your server, no matter what your IP address
is.
Enable Dynamic DNS
Enable this option only if you have purchased your own domain name and registered
with a dynamic DNS service provider. The following paramters are displayed when
the option is enabled.
Server Address
Select a dynamic DNS service provider from the pull-down list.
Host Name
Enter your host name, fully qualified; for example: myhost.mydomain.net.
Username or Key
Enter the username or key provided by your service provider. If the Dynamic DNS
provider supplies only a key, enter that key in all three fields.
78
Password or Key
Enter the password or key provided by your service provider. If the Dynamic DNS
provider supplies only a key, enter that key in all three fields.
Verify Password or Key
Re-type the password or key provided by your service provider. If the Dynamic DNS
provider supplies only a key, enter that key in all three fields.
Timeout
The time between periodic updates to the Dynamic DNS, if your dynamic IP address
has not changed. The timeout period is entered in hours.
If a dynamic DNS update fails for any reason (for example, when incorrect
parameters are entered), the router automatically disables the Dynamic DNS
feature and records the failure in the log.
After configuring the router for dynamic DNS, you can open a browser and
navigate to the URL for your domain (for example http://www.mydomain.info)
and the router will attempt to forward the request to port 80 on your LAN. If,
however, you do this from a LAN-side computer and there is no virtual server
defined for port 80, the router will return the router's configuration home page.
Refer to the Advanced -> Virtual Server configuration page to set up a virtual
server.
79
Tools_System Check
Ping Test
"Ping" is an Internet utility function that sends a series of short messages to a target
computer and reports the results. You can use it to test whether a computer is
running, and to get an idea of the quality of the connection to that computer, based
on the speed of the responses.
Host Name or IP Address
Enter either the IP address of the target computer or enter its fully qualified
domain name.

Using the USB2.0 Multi-function Print
Server
Introduction
The SMCWGBR14-N Multi-Functional (MFP) Print Server allows networked PCs to access
and share the networked printer or All-In-One printer using the USB port on your
SMCWGBR14-N.
For supported MFP devices, both printing and scanning features can be accessed from any
PC on the network.
This MFP Print Server was designed to use a web based Printer Setup Wizard that makes
network printer installation easy.
System Setup
To use the MFP print server, first use the SMCWGBR14-N instructions for the basic setup of
your network.
Next, run the Printer Setup Wizard to install the correct printer driver onto your PC(s) and
configure for network printing.
100
Printer Wizard
The Print Server provides a Printer Setup Wizard that makes this process
extremely simple to set up the PC for network printing.
From the SMCWGBR14-N home page (LOGIN page), select the Printer Icon to
start the installation of your printer. Review the 3 simple steps, and press Next.
101
Step 1 of the Printer Setup Wizard requires you to verify the printer to
install. Press Next to install this printer.
Note: the printer must be powered on to be visible in this setup page.
Step 2 is to launch the Printer Setup Wizard application. This
application executes on your PC, finds and loads the correct print driver
and then configures the driver for network printing.
If the printer driver has been loaded onto the PC before, the wizard will
find it. If this printer is new to this PC, you may be asked to place the
printer CD that came with the printer into the CD drive of the PC.
Alternatively, one can download the printer driver from the printer
manufacturer’s web site prior to running the wizard. Press Next to
launch the install Printer Setup Wizard application.
102
Since the Print Setup Wizard application runs on the PC, the Security
Warning popup boxes shown below will be displayed. Select RUN in
both instances.
The Wizard will execute showing progress with the following popup.
Once the printer driver is installed, the Printer Setup Wizard will ask if
you would like to make this printer the default printer. The default printer
can be changed at anytime through the Windows Control Panel for
Printers and Faxes.
103
The Printer Setup Wizard application also creates a shortcut to the
SMCWGBR14-N web page on your PC desktop. This shortcut can be
used to quickly access the SMCWGBR14-N web page in the future,
especially to use the scan function on the MFP.
Finally, the Printer Setup Wizard application will ask if you would like to
print a test page. This is helpful to ensure everything is set up and
working properly.
Press the Finish button to conclude the Printer Setup Wizard.
104
Scanning Webpage
If you have connected a supported Multifunctional (MFP) device to the Print
Server, you can access the scan feature now without loading any driver
software.
From the SMCWGBR14-N home page (LOGIN), select the Scan Icon. The
following Scan page will be displayed. Follow the numbered steps to quickly
obtain a scan image.
105
Step 1 Press Preview Scan to initiate a quick scan to check the position and
alignment of the scan document.
Note: Preview Scan is unavailable when using Automatic Document Feeder.
106
Step 2 is to select your final scan parameters.
Size:
Select Full Bed, Letter, Executive, A4, or use the mouse to
select a custom scan area.
Resolution:
Select a desired resolution from Low to Highest.
Color:
Select either Color or Black & White.
File Format:
Select the desired file format.
Now press the Scan button.
Step 3 is the process of scanning the final image. This image is displayed on a
new page as shown below. Use the Back button if you would like to resize or
change scan parameters and rescan.
☺Hint: The do not use the Browser’s Back button, use the Back button under
Step4 to go back to the initial scan page.
107
Step 4 is saving the image. To save the image, move the mouse over the image
area and right click to bring up options for saving the image to your PC. The
image will be saved in the file format selected in Step 2.
