Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
Chapter 1: Introduction
Welcome
Thank you for choosing the Linksys Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband. The Wireless-G Router for
3G/UMTS Broadband will allow you to network wirelessly better than ever, sharing Internet access, files and fun,
easily and securely.
How does the Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband do all of this? A router is a device that allows access to
an Internet connection over a network. With the Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband, you can access the
Internet through either your HSDPA/3G/UMTS or GPRS service (requires a Vodafone Mobile Connect HSDPA/3G/
UMTS data card, available separately), or you can use a cable or DSL modem for broadband service. Plus, this
access can be shared over the four switched ports or via the wireless broadcast at up to 54Mbps for Wireless-G
or up to 11Mbps for Wireless-B.
Use the WPA or WPA2 standard to secure your wireless network while the whole network is protected through a
Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) technology. Run the Setup Wizard
and it will guide you through the steps. You can also access the Router’s features through the easy-to-use,
browser-based utility.
wpa (wi-fi protected access): a wireless security
protocol using TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol)
encryption, which can be used in conjunction with a
RADIUS server.
But what does all of this mean?
spi (stateful packet inspection) firewall: a technology
that inspects incoming packets of information before
allowing them to enter the network.
Networks are useful tools for sharing computer resources. You can access one printer from different computers
and access data located on another computer's hard drive. Networks are even used for playing multiplayer video
games. So, networks are not only useful in homes and offices, they can also be fun.
firewall: Security measures that protect the
resources of a local network from intruders.
PCs on a wired network create a LAN, or Local Area Network. They are connected with Ethernet cables, which is
why the network is called “wired”.
nat (network address translation): NAT technology
translates IP addresses of a local area network to a
different IP address for the Internet.
PCs equipped with wireless cards or adapters can communicate without cumbersome cables. By sharing the
same wireless settings, within their transmission radius, they form a wireless network. This is sometimes called
a WLAN, or Wireless Local Area Network. The Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband bridges wireless
networks of both 802.11b and 802.11g standards and wired networks, allowing them to communicate with each
other.
lan (local area network): The computers and
networking products that make up the network in
your home or office.
With your networks all connected, wired, wireless, and the Internet, you can now share files and Internet
access—and even play games. All the while, the Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband protects your
networks from unauthorised and unwelcome users.

Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
Chapter 2: Planning Your Wireless Network
Network Topology
A wireless local area network (WLAN) is exactly like a regular local area network (LAN), except that each
computer in the WLAN uses a wireless device to connect to the network. Computers in a WLAN share the same
frequency channel and SSID, which is an identification name shared by the wireless devices belonging to the
same wireless network.
ssid (service set identifier): your wireless network’s name.
Ad-Hoc versus Infrastructure Mode
Unlike wired networks, wireless networks have two different modes in which they may be set up: infrastructure
and ad-hoc. An infrastructure configuration is a WLAN and wired LAN communicating to each other through an
access point. An ad-hoc configuration is wireless-equipped computers communicating directly with each other.
Choosing between these two modes depends on whether or not the wireless network needs to share data or
peripherals with a wired network or not.
If the computers on the wireless network need to be accessible by a wired network or need to share a peripheral,
such as a printer, with the wired network computers, the wireless network should be set up in Infrastructure
mode. The basis of Infrastructure mode centers around a wireless router or an access point, such as the
Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband, which serves as the main point of communications in a wireless
network. The Router transmits data to PCs equipped with wireless network adapters, which can roam within a
certain radial range of the Router. You can arrange the Router and multiple access points to work in succession to
extend the roaming range, and you can set up your wireless network to communicate with your Ethernet
hardware as well.
infrastructure: a wireless network that is bridged
to a wired network via an access point.
ad-hoc: a group of wireless devices
communicating directly to each other (peer-topeer) without the use of an access point.
If the wireless network is relatively small and needs to share resources only with the other computers on the
wireless network, then the Ad-Hoc mode can be used. Ad-Hoc mode allows computers equipped with wireless
transmitters and receivers to communicate directly with each other, eliminating the need for a wireless router or
access point. The drawback of this mode is that in Ad-Hoc mode, wireless-equipped computers are not able to
communicate with computers on a wired network. And, of course, communication between the wirelessequipped computers is limited by the distance and interference directly between them.
Network Layout
The Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband has been specifically designed for use with both your 802.11b
and 802.11g products. It is compatible with all 802.11g and 802.11b adapters, such as the notebook adapters for

Chapter 4: Connecting the Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS
Broadband
Overview
Most users who are connecting the Router to the Internet for the first time can proceed to the appropriate chapter
about the Setup Wizard and use this chapter as reference on how to connect the hardware. There are three
chapters about the Setup Wizard available. If you want to configure the Router for HSDPA/3G/UMTS or GPRS
service only, go to “Chapter 5: Setting up the Wireless-G Router for HSDPA/3G/UMTS or GPRS Service.” If you
want to configure the Router for broadband WAN service only, go to “Chapter 6: Setting up the Wireless-G Router
for Broadband WAN Service Only.” If you want to configure the Router for broadband WAN and HSDPA/3G/UMTS or
GPRS service, go to “Chapter 7: Setting up the Wireless-G Router for Broadband WAN and HSDPA/3G/UMTS or
GPRS Service.”
This chapter includes three sets of instructions. If the Router will use the HSDPA/3G/UMTS or GPRS service only,
follow the instructions in “Hardware Installation for Use of the HSDPA/3G/UMTS or GPRS Service.” If the Router
will be the only router in your network and you have a broadband modem, follow the instructions in “Hardware
Installation for Connection to Your Broadband Modem.” If you want to install the Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS
Broadband behind another router in your network, then follow the instructions in “Hardware Installation for
Connection to Another Router.”
Hardware Installation for Use of the HSDPA/3G/UMTS or GPRS Service
1. Power down your network devices.
2. Locate an optimum location for the Router. The best place for the Router is usually at the center of your
wireless network, with line of sight to all of your mobile stations.
3. Attach the antenna and fix its direction. Try to place the Router in a position that will best cover your wireless
network. Normally, the higher you place the antenna, the better the performance will be.

NOTE: Steps 1-4 are instructions for a typical
Linksys router; however, if you are using a nonLinksys router, refer to the other router’s
documentation for instructions on how to change its
local IP address to 192.168.2.1.
Before you install the Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband, you must change the default IP address of the
other router. This is mandatory because both routers may be set to the same IP address by default. If you do not
change the other router’s default IP address, then you may not be able to set up the Router.
First, make sure the Router is NOT connected to your network. Then follow these instructions:
1. To access the other router’s web-based utility, launch Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator, and enter the
other router’s default IP address, 192.168.1.1, in the Address field. Then press Enter.

DHCP Server Settings
The Router can be used as a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server for your network. A DHCP server
automatically assigns an IP address to each computer on your network. Select the mode you want the Router to
use for its DHCP server function. If you are not sure which mode to select, keep the default, Mode 1 - Fixed
configuration (Default).
Figure 8-12: DHCP Server Settings
Mode 1 - Fixed configuration (Default). In this mode, the Router will advertise itself as the DNS server for the
clients (computers) to use. The clients will contact the Router for DNS, and its DNS caching server will resolve the
addresses for them. This mode is recommended for networks whose UMTS upstream DNS servers change on a
connection-by-connection basis, such as networks in the UK.
Mode 2- Network Supplied. Via DHCP, the Router will advertise the DNS and WINS servers it is using. This mode
may be suitable for networks whose DNS servers have static addresses.
Mode 3- Manual configuration. You can designate the settings advertised to the clients via DHCP. Complete the
Static DNS and WINS fields that will appear. You can specify up to three DNS servers and up to two WINS servers.
Make sure these values do not depend on the Router’s static settings.
Network Address Server Settings (DHCP)
The settings allow you to configure the Router’s DHCP server function. If you choose to enable the Router’s DHCP
server option, you must configure all of your network PCs to connect to a DHCP server (the Router), and make
sure there is no other DHCP server on your network.
DHCP Server. DHCP is enabled by factory default. If you already have a DHCP server on your network, or you
don’t want a DHCP server, then click the Disable radio button (no other DHCP features will be available).
Starting IP Address. Enter a value for the DHCP server to start with when issuing IP addresses. Because the
Router’s default IP address is 192.168.1.1, the Starting IP Address must be 192.168.1.2 or greater, but smaller
than 192.168.1.253. The default Starting IP Address is 192.168.1.100.
Figure 8-13: Network Address Server Settings
Maximum Number of DHCP Users. Enter the maximum number of PCs that you want the DHCP server to assign
IP addresses to. This number cannot be greater than 253. The default is 50.
Client Lease Time. The Client Lease Time is the amount of time a network user will be allowed connection to the
Router with their current dynamic IP address. Enter the amount of time, in minutes, that the user will be “leased”
this dynamic IP address. After the time is up, the user will be automatically assigned a new dynamic IP address.
The default is 0 minutes, which means one day.

Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
The Wireless Tab - Wireless Security
The Wireless Security settings configure the security of your wireless network. There are four wireless security
mode options supported by the Router: WPA Personal, WPA2 Personal, WPA Enterprise (also known as WPARADIUS), WPA2 Enterprise, RADIUS, and WEP. (WPA stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access, which is a security
standard stronger than WEP encryption. WEP stands for Wired Equivalent Privacy, while RADIUS stands for
Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service.) These four are briefly discussed here. For detailed instructions on
configuring wireless security for the Router, turn to “Appendix B: Wireless Security.”
IMPORTANT: Linksys strongly recommends that you enable wireless security on your
wireless network. Otherwise, unauthorised users may be able to access the Internet using
your service and incur additional charges. You are liable for any and all additional charges
from your service provider.

The Wireless Tab - Advanced Wireless Settings
This tab is used to set up the Router’s advanced wireless functions. These settings should only be adjusted by an
expert administrator as incorrect settings can reduce wireless performance.
Advanced Wireless
Authentication Type. The default is set to Auto, which allows either Open System or Shared Key authentication
to be used. With Open System authentication, the sender and the recipient do NOT use a WEP key for
authentication. With Shared Key authentication, the sender and recipient use a WEP key for authentication.
Basic Rate. The Basic Rate setting is not actually one rate of transmission but a series of rates at which the
Router can transmit. The Router will advertise its Basic Rate to the other wireless devices in your network, so
they know which rates will be used. The Router will also advertise that it will automatically select the best rate
for transmission. The default setting is Default, when the Router can transmit at all standard wireless rates
(1-2Mbps, 5.5Mbps, 11Mbps, 18Mbps, and 24Mbps). Other options are 1-2Mbps, for use with older wireless
technology, and All, when the Router can transmit at all wireless rates. The Basic Rate is not the actual rate of
data transmission. If you want to specify the Router’s rate of data transmission, configure the Transmission Rate
setting.
Figure 8-36: Wireless Tab - Advanced Wireless Settings
Transmission Rate. The rate of data transmission should be set depending on the speed of your wireless
network. You can select from a range of transmission speeds, or you can select Auto to have the Router
automatically use the fastest possible data rate and enable the Auto-Fallback feature. Auto-Fallback will
negotiate the best possible connection speed between the Router and a wireless client. The default value is Auto.
CTS Protection Mode. CTS (Clear-To-Send) Protection Mode should remain disabled unless you are having
severe problems with your Wireless-G products not being able to transmit to the Router in an environment with
heavy 802.11b traffic. This function boosts the Router’s ability to catch all Wireless-G transmissions but will
severely decrease performance.
Frame Burst. Enabling this option should provide your network with greater performance, depending on the
manufacturer of your wireless products. If you are not sure how to use this option, keep the default, Disable.
Beacon Interval. The default value is 100. Enter a value between 1 and 65,535 milliseconds. The Beacon Interval
value indicates the frequency interval of the beacon. A beacon is a packet broadcast by the Router to synchronize
the wireless network.
DTIM Interval. This value, between 1 and 255, indicates the interval of the Delivery Traffic Indication Message
(DTIM). A DTIM field is a countdown field informing clients of the next window for listening to broadcast and
multicast messages. When the Router has buffered broadcast or multicast messages for associated clients, it
Chapter 8: Configuring the Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
The Wireless Tab - Advanced Wireless Settings
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
75
Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
sends the next DTIM with a DTIM Interval value. Its clients hear the beacons and awaken to receive the broadcast
and multicast messages. The default value is 1.
Fragmentation Threshold. This value specifies the maximum size for a packet before data is fragmented into
multiple packets. If you experience a high packet error rate, you may slightly increase the Fragmentation
Threshold. Setting the Fragmentation Threshold too low may result in poor network performance. Only minor
reduction of the default value is recommended. In most cases, it should remain at its default value of 2346.
RTS Threshold. Should you encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor reduction of the default value, 2347, is
recommended. If a network packet is smaller than the preset RTS threshold size, the RTS/CTS mechanism will
not be enabled. The Router sends Request to Send (RTS) frames to a particular receiving station and negotiates
the sending of a data frame. After receiving an RTS, the wireless station responds with a Clear to Send (CTS)
frame to acknowledge the right to begin transmission. The RTS Threshold value should remain at its default value
of 2347.
AP Isolation. This isolates all wireless clients and wireless devices on your network from each other. Wireless
devices will be able to communicate with the Router but not with each other. To use this function, select On. AP
Isolation is Off by default.

• Refer to “Problem #10: I am a PPPoE user, and I need to remove the proxy settings or the dial-up pop-up
window.”
6. I need to set up a server behind my Router and make it available to the public.
To use a server like a web, ftp, or mail server, you need to know the respective port numbers they are using.
For example, port 80 (HTTP) is used for web; port 21 (FTP) is used for FTP, and port 25 (SMTP outgoing) and
port 110 (POP3 incoming) are used for the mail server. You can get more information by viewing the
documentation provided with the server you installed.
Follow these steps to set up port forwarding through the Router’s web-based utility. We will be setting up
web, ftp, and mail servers.
1. Access the Router’s web-based utility by going to http://192.168.1.1 or the IP address of the Router.
Go to the Applications & Gaming => Port Range Forward tab.
2. Enter any name you want to use for the Application.
3. Enter the Start and End Port range of the service you are using. For example, if you have a web server,
you would enter the range 80 to 80.
4. Select the protocol(s) you will be using, TCP and/or UDP.
5. Enter the IP address of the PC or network device that you want the port server to go to. For example,
if the web server’s Ethernet adapter IP address is 192.168.1.100, you would enter 100 in the field
provided. Check “Appendix E: Finding the MAC Address and IP Address for Your Ethernet Adapter” for
details on getting an IP address.
6. Check the Enable option for the port services you want to use. Consider the example below:
Application

7. I need to set up online game hosting or use other Internet applications.
If you want to play online games or use Internet applications, most will work without doing any port
forwarding or DMZ hosting. There may be cases when you want to host an online game or Internet
application. This would require you to set up the Router to deliver incoming packets or data to a specific
computer. This also applies to the Internet applications you are using. The best way to get the information on
what port services to use is to go to the website of the online game or application you want to use. Follow
these steps to set up online game hosting or use a certain Internet application:
1. Access the Router’s web interface by going to http://192.168.1.1 or the IP address of the Router. Go to
the Applications & Gaming => Port Range Forward tab.
2. Enter any name you want to use for the Application.
3. Enter the Start and End Port range of the service you are using. For example, if you want to host
Unreal Tournament (UT), you would enter the range 7777 to 27900.
4. Select the protocol(s) you will be using, TCP and/or UDP.
5. Enter the IP address of the PC or network device that you want the port server to go to. For example,
if the web server’s Ethernet adapter IP address is 192.168.1.100, you would enter 100 in the field
provided. Check “Appendix E: Finding the MAC Address and IP Address for Your Ethernet Adapter” for
details on getting an IP address.
6. Check the Enable option for the port services you want to use. Consider the example below:
Application

When you have completed the configuration, click the Save Settings button.
8. I can’t get the Internet game, server, or application to work.
If you are having difficulties getting any Internet game, server, or application to function properly, consider
exposing one PC to the Internet using DeMilitarized Zone (DMZ) hosting. This option is available when an
application requires too many ports or when you are not sure which port services to use. Make sure you
disable all the forwarding entries if you want to successfully use DMZ hosting, since forwarding has priority
over DMZ hosting. (In other words, data that enters the Router will be checked first by the forwarding
settings. If the port number that the data enters from does not have port forwarding, then the Router will send
the data to whichever PC or network device you set for DMZ hosting.)
Appendix A: Troubleshooting
Common Problems and Solutions
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
100
Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
Follow these steps to set DMZ hosting:
1. Access the Router’s web-based utility by going to http://192.168.1.1 or the IP address of the Router.
Go to the Applications & Gaming => Port Range Forward tab.
2. Disable or remove the entries you have entered for forwarding. Keep this information in case you
want to use it at a later time.
3. Go to the Applications & Gaming => DMZ tab.
4. Select Enable next to DMZ. In the Client PC IP Address field, enter the IP address of the computer you
want exposed to the Internet. This will bypass the NAT technology for that computer. Please refer to
“Appendix E: Finding the MAC Address and IP Address for Your Ethernet Adapter” for details on getting
an IP address.
5. Once completed with the configuration, click the Save Settings button.
9. I forgot my password, or the password prompt always appears when I am saving settings to the
Router.
Reset the Router to factory default by pressing the Reset button for 10 seconds and then releasing it. If you
are still getting prompted for a password when saving settings, then perform the following steps:
1. Access the Router’s web-based utility by going to http://192.168.1.1 or the IP address of the Router.
Enter the default password admin, and click the Administration => Management tab.
2. Enter a different password in the Router Password field, and enter the same password in the second
field to confirm the password.
3. Click the Save Settings button.
10. I am a PPPoE user, and I need to remove the proxy settings or the dial-up pop-up window.
If you have proxy settings, you need to disable these on your computer. Because the Router is the gateway for
the Internet connection, the computer does not need any proxy settings to gain access. Please follow these
directions to verify that you do not have any proxy settings and that the browser you use is set to connect
directly to the LAN.
• For Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher:
1. Click Start, Settings, and Control Panel. Double-click Internet Options.
2. Click the Connections tab.
3. Click the LAN settings button and remove anything that is checked.
4. Click the OK button to go back to the previous screen.
5. Click the option Never dial a connection. This will remove any dial-up pop-ups for PPPoE users.
• For Netscape 4.7 or higher:
1. Start Netscape Navigator, and click Edit, Preferences, Advanced, and Proxies.
2. Make sure you have Direct connection to the Internet selected on this screen.
3. Close all the windows to finish.

11. To start over, I need to set the Router to factory default.
Hold the Reset button for 10 seconds and then release it. This will return the password, forwarding, and other
settings on the Router to the factory default settings. In other words, the Router will revert to its original
factory configuration.
12. I need to upgrade the firmware.
In order to upgrade the firmware with the latest features, you need to go to the Linksys website and download
the latest firmware at www.linksys.com/international.
Follow these steps:
1. Go to the Linksys website at http://www.linksys.com/international and download the latest firmware.
2. To upgrade the firmware, follow the steps in “Appendix C: Upgrading Firmware.”
13. The firmware upgrade failed, and/or the Power LED is flashing.
If the Power LED flashes for longer than three minutes, and the web-based utility does not work, then refer to
“Problem #16: The Power LED keeps flashing”. If the web-based utility works, upgrade the firmware again
using the Administration tab of the Router’s web-based utility.
14. My DSL service’s PPPoE is always disconnecting.
PPPoE is not actually a dedicated or always-on connection. The DSL ISP can disconnect the service after a
period of inactivity, just like a normal phone dial-up connection to the Internet.
• There is a setup option to “keep alive” the connection. This may not always work, so you may need to reestablish connection periodically.
1. To connect to the Router, go to the web browser, and enter http://192.168.1.1 or the IP address of the
Router.
2. Enter the password, if asked. (The default password is admin.)
3. On the Setup screen, select the option Keep Alive, and set the Redial Period option at 20 (seconds).
4. Click the Save Settings button.
5. Click the Status tab, and click the Connect button.
6. You may see the login status display as Connecting. Press the F5 key to refresh the screen, until you
see the login status display as Connected.
• Click the Save Settings button to continue.
• If the connection is lost again, follow steps 1- 6 to re-establish connection.
15. I can’t access my e-mail, web or I am getting corrupted data from the Internet.
The Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) setting may need to be adjusted. By default, the MTU is set at 1500.
For most DSL users, it is strongly recommended to use MTU 1492.
• If you are having some difficulties, perform the following steps:
1. To connect to the Router, go to the web browser, and enter http://192.168.1.1 or the IP address of the
Router.
2. Enter the password, if asked. (The default password is admin.)

Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
3. Look for the MTU option, and select Manual. In the Size field, enter 1492.
4. Click the Save Settings button to continue.
• If your difficulties continue, change the Size to different values. Try this list of values, one value at a time,
in this order, until your problem is solved:
1462
1400
1362
1300
16. The Power LED keeps flashing.
The Power LED flashes when the device is first powered up. Meantime, the system will boot up itself and
check for proper operation. After finishing the checking procedure, the LED stays solid to show that the
system is working fine. If the LED keeps flashing after this time, the device is not working properly.
• If this occurs after attempting a firmware upgrade, use the TFTP program, which was downloaded along
with the firmware.
• Visit the Linksys support website, www.linksys.com/support, and download the Router’s firmware and
TFTP program. Open the pdf that was downloaded along with the firmware and TFTP program, and then
follow the pdf’s instructions.
• Set a static IP address on the computer; refer to “Problem #2: I need to set a static IP address on a PC”.
Use the following settings for the computer you are using:
IP Address: 192.168.1.50
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0.
Gateway: 192.168.1.1
• Upgrade the firmware using the TFTP program.
17. When I enter a URL or IP address, I get a time-out error or am prompted to retry.
• Check if other PCs work. If they do, ensure that your workstation’s IP settings are correct (IP Address,
Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and DNS). Restart the computer that is having a problem.
• If the PCs are configured correctly, but still not working, check the Router. Ensure that it is connected and

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the maximum number of IP addresses that the Router will support?
The Router will support up to 253 IP addresses.
Is IPSec Pass-Through supported by the Router?
Yes, it is a built-in feature that the Router automatically enables.
Where is the Router installed on the network?
In a typical environment, the Router is installed between the cable/DSL modem and the LAN. Plug the Router into
the cable/DSL modem’s Ethernet port.
Does the Router support IPX or AppleTalk?
No. TCP/IP is the only protocol standard for the Internet and has become the global standard for communications.
IPX, a NetWare communications protocol used only to route messages from one node to another, and AppleTalk,
a communications protocol used on Apple and Macintosh networks, can be used for LAN to LAN connections, but
those protocols cannot connect from the Internet to a LAN.
Does the Internet connection of the Router support 100Mbps Ethernet?
The Router’s current hardware design supports up to 100Mbps Ethernet on its Internet port; however, the Internet
connection speed will vary depending on the speed of your broadband connection. The Router also supports
100Mbps over the auto-sensing Fast Ethernet 10/100 switch on the LAN side of the Router.
What is Network Address Translation and what is it used for?
Network Address Translation (NAT) translates multiple IP addresses on the private LAN to one public address that
is sent out to the Internet. This adds a level of security since the address of a PC connected to the private LAN is
never transmitted on the Internet. Furthermore, NAT allows the Router to be used with low cost Internet
accounts, such as DSL or cable modems, when only one TCP/IP address is provided by the ISP. The user may
have many private addresses behind this single address provided by the ISP.
Does the Router support any operating system other than Windows 98SE, Windows Millennium,
Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Vista?
Yes, but Linksys does not, at this time, provide technical support for setup, configuration or troubleshooting of
any non-Windows operating systems.
Does the Router support ICQ send file?
Yes, with the following fix: click ICQ menu -> preference -> connections tab->, and check I am behind a firewall
or proxy. Then set the firewall time-out to 80 seconds in the firewall setting. The Internet user can then send a file
to a user behind the Router.

I set up an Unreal Tournament Server, but others on the LAN cannot join. What do I need to do?
If you have a dedicated Unreal Tournament server running, you need to create a static IP for each of the LAN
computers and forward ports 7777, 7778, 7779, 7780, 7781, and 27900 to the IP address of the server. You can
also use a port forwarding range of 7777 ~ 27900. If you want to use the UT Server Admin, forward another port.
(Port 8080 usually works well but is used for remote admin. You may have to disable this.) Then in the
[UWeb.WebServer] section of the server.ini file, set the ListenPort to 8080 (to match the mapped port above) and
ServerName to the IP assigned to the Router from your ISP.
Can multiple gamers on the LAN get on one game server and play simultaneously with just one public IP
address?
It depends on which network game or what kind of game server you are using. For example, Unreal Tournament
supports multi-login with one public IP.
How do I get Half-Life: Team Fortress to work with the Router?
The default client port for Half-Life is 27005. The computers on your LAN need to have “+clientport 2700x”
added to the HL shortcut command line; the x would be 6, 7, 8, and on up. This lets multiple computers connect
to the same server. One problem: Version 1.0.1.6 won’t let multiple computers with the same CD key connect at
the same time, even if on the same LAN (not a problem with 1.0.1.3). As far as hosting games, the HL server does
not need to be in the DMZ. Just forward port 27015 to the local IP address of the server computer.
How can I avoid corrupted FTP downloads?
If you are experiencing corrupted files when you download a file with your FTP client, try using another FTP
program.
The web page hangs; downloads are corrupt, or nothing but junk characters are being displayed on the
screen. What do I need to do?
Force your Ethernet adapter to 10Mbps or half duplex mode, and turn off the “Auto-negotiate” feature of your
Ethernet adapter as a temporary measure. (Please look at the Network Control Panel in your Ethernet adapter’s
Advanced Properties tab.) Make sure that your proxy setting is disabled in the browser. Check our website at
www.linksys.com/international for more information.
If all else fails in the installation, what can I do?
Reset the Router by holding down the reset button until the Power LED fully turns on and off. Reset your cable or
DSL modem by powering the unit off and then on. Obtain and flash the latest firmware release that is readily
available on the Linksys website, www.linksys.com/international.
How will I be notified of new Router firmware upgrades?
All Linksys firmware upgrades are posted on the Linksys website at www.linksys.com/international, where they
can be downloaded for free. To upgrade the Router’s firmware, use the Administration - Firmware Upgrade tab of
the Router’s web-based utility. If the Router’s Internet connection is working well, there is no need to download a

newer firmware version, unless that version contains new features that you would like to use. Downloading a
more current version of Router firmware will not enhance the quality or speed of your Internet connection, and
may disrupt your current connection stability.
Will the Router function in a Macintosh environment?
Yes, but the Router’s setup pages are accessible only through Internet Explorer 4.0 or Netscape Navigator 4.0 or
higher for Macintosh.
I am not able to get the web configuration screen for the Router. What can I do?
You may have to remove the proxy settings on your Internet browser, e.g., Netscape Navigator or Internet
Explorer. Or remove the dial-up settings on your browser. Check with your browser documentation, and make
sure that your browser is set to connect directly and that any dial-up is disabled. Make sure that your browser is
set to connect directly and that any dial-up is disabled. For Internet Explorer, click Tools, Internet Options, and
then the Connection tab. Make sure that Internet Explorer is set to Never dial a connection. For Netscape
Navigator, click Edit, Preferences, Advanced, and Proxy. Make sure that Netscape Navigator is set to Direct
connection to the Internet.
What is DMZ Hosting?
Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) allows one IP address (computer) to be exposed to the Internet. Some applications
require multiple TCP/IP ports to be open. It is recommended that you set your computer with a static IP if you
want to use DMZ Hosting. To get the LAN IP address, see “Appendix E: Finding the MAC Address and IP Address
for Your Ethernet Adapter.”
If DMZ Hosting is used, does the exposed user share the public IP with the Router?
No.
Does the Router pass PPTP packets or actively route PPTP sessions?
The Router allows PPTP packets to pass through.
Is the Router cross-platform compatible?
Any platform that supports Ethernet and TCP/IP is compatible with the Router.
How many ports can be simultaneously forwarded?
Theoretically, the Router can establish 520 sessions at the same time, but you can only forward 10 ranges of
ports.
What are the advanced features of the Router?
The Router’s advanced features include advanced wireless settings, filters, access restriction policies, port
forwarding, advanced routing, and DDNS.

107
Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
What is ad-hoc mode?
When a wireless network is set to ad-hoc mode, the wireless-equipped computers are configured to
communicate directly with each other. The ad-hoc wireless network will not communicate with any wired
network.
What is infrastructure mode?
When a wireless network is set to infrastructure mode, the wireless network is configured to communicate with
a wired network through a wireless access point.
What is roaming?
Roaming is the ability of a portable computer to communicate continuously while the user is moving freely
throughout an area greater than that covered by a single access point. Before using the roaming function, the
workstation must make sure that it is the same channel number with the access point of dedicated coverage
area.
To achieve true seamless connectivity, the wireless LAN must incorporate a number of different functions. Each
node and access point, for example, must always acknowledge receipt of each message. Each node must
maintain contact with the wireless network even when not actually transmitting data. Achieving these functions
simultaneously requires a dynamic RF networking technology that links access points and nodes. In such a
system, the user’s end node undertakes a search for the best possible access to the system. First, it evaluates
such factors as signal strength and quality, as well as the message load currently being carried by each access
point and the distance of each access point to the wired backbone. Based on that information, the node next
selects the right access point and registers its address. Communications between end node and host computer
can then be transmitted up and down the backbone.
As the user moves on, the end node’s RF transmitter regularly checks the system to determine whether it is in
touch with the original access point or whether it should seek a new one. When a node no longer receives
acknowledgment from its original access point, it undertakes a new search. Upon finding a new access point, it
then re-registers, and the communication process continues.
What is ISM band?
The FCC and their counterparts outside of the U.S. have set aside bandwidth for unlicensed use in the ISM
(Industrial, Scientific and Medical) band. Spectrum in the vicinity of 2.4 GHz, in particular, is being made available
worldwide. This presents a truly revolutionary opportunity to place convenient high-speed wireless capabilities in
the hands of users around the globe.
What is Spread Spectrum?
Spread Spectrum technology is a wideband radio frequency technique developed by the military for use in
reliable, secure, mission-critical communications systems. It is designed to trade off bandwidth efficiency for
reliability, integrity, and security. In other words, more bandwidth is consumed than in the case of narrowband
Appendix A: Troubleshooting
Frequently Asked Questions
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
108
Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
transmission, but the trade-off produces a signal that is, in effect, louder and thus easier to detect, provided that
the receiver knows the parameters of the spread-spectrum signal being broadcast. If a receiver is not tuned to
the right frequency, a spread-spectrum signal looks like background noise. There are two main alternatives,
Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS).
What is DSSS? What is FHSS? And what are their differences?
Frequency-Hopping Spread-Spectrum (FHSS) uses a narrowband carrier that changes frequency in a pattern that
is known to both transmitter and receiver. Properly synchronized, the net effect is to maintain a single logical
channel. To an unintended receiver, FHSS appears to be short-duration impulse noise. Direct-Sequence SpreadSpectrum (DSSS) generates a redundant bit pattern for each bit to be transmitted. This bit pattern is called a chip
(or chipping code). The longer the chip, the greater the probability that the original data can be recovered. Even if
one or more bits in the chip are damaged during transmission, statistical techniques embedded in the radio can
recover the original data without the need for retransmission. To an unintended receiver, DSSS appears as low
power wideband noise and is rejected (ignored) by most narrowband receivers.
What is WEP?
WEP is Wired Equivalent Privacy, a data privacy mechanism based on a 64-bit or 128-bit shared key algorithm, as
described in the IEEE 802.11 standard.
What is a MAC Address?
The Media Access Control (MAC) address is a unique number assigned by the manufacturer to any Ethernet
networking device, such as a network adapter, that allows the network to identify it at the hardware level. For all
practical purposes, this number is usually permanent. Unlike IP addresses, which can change every time a
computer logs onto the network, the MAC address of a device stays the same, making it a valuable identifier for
the network.
How do I reset the Router?
Press the Reset button on the back panel for about five seconds. This will reset the Router to its default settings.
How do I resolve issues with signal loss?
There is no way to know the exact range of your wireless network without testing. Every obstacle placed between
the Router and a wireless PC will create signal loss. Lead glass, metal, concrete floors, water and walls will
inhibit the signal and reduce range. Start with the Router and your wireless PC in the same room and move it
away in small increments to determine the maximum range in your environment.
You may also try using different channels, as this may eliminate interference affecting only one channel.
I have excellent signal strength, but I cannot see my network.
Wireless security is probably enabled on the Router, but not on your wireless adapter (or vice versa). Verify that
the same wireless security method and passphrase/keys are being used on all devices of your wireless network.

appropriate for your location and preferences.
HSPDA/3G/UMTS
Preferred
(recommended) The Vodafone Mobile Connect Card will use the HSDPA/3G/UMTS mobile network when it is
available. When the signal strength from the GPRS network is significantly stronger than the
HSDPA/3G/UMTS signal, the Vodafone Mobile Connect Card will use the GPRS network. This
could result in a card changing networks frequently in areas of mixed coverage.
HSPDA/3G/UMTS
Only
The Vodafone Mobile Connect Card will only use the HSDPA/3G/UMTS mobile network. It will
not connect to the GPRS network. You should use this option if you want to prevent the card
from frequently changing networks. However, if there is no HSDPA/3G/UMTS mobile network
coverage, then the card will not be able to connect to the network.
GPRS Only
The Vodafone Mobile Connect Card will use the GPRS mobile network. It will not connect to the
HSDPA/3G/UMTS network. You should use this option if you want to prevent the card from
frequently changing networks. However, if there is no GPRS mobile network coverage, the card
will not be able to connect to the network.
Whom should I call if there is a question or problem?

Appendix B: Wireless Security
Linksys wants to make wireless networking as safe and easy for you as possible. The current generation of
Linksys products provide several network security features, but they require specific action on your part for
implementation. So, keep the following in mind whenever you are setting up or using your wireless network.
IMPORTANT: Linksys strongly recommends that you enable wireless security on your wireless
network. Otherwise, unauthorised users may be able to access the Internet using your service and
incur additional charges. You are liable for any and all additional charges from your service provider.
Security Precautions
The following is a complete list of security precautions to take (at least steps 1 through 5 should be followed):
1. Change the default SSID.
2. Disable SSID Broadcast.
3. Change the default password for the Administrator account.
4. Enable MAC Address Filtering.
5. Change the SSID periodically.
6. Use the highest encryption algorithm possible. Use WPA if it is available. Please note that this may reduce
your network performance.
7. Change the WEP encryption keys periodically.
For information on implementing these security features, refer to “Chapter 8: Configuring the Wireless-G Router
for 3G/UMTS Broadband.”
Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks
Wireless networks are easy to find. Hackers know that in order to join a wireless network, wireless networking
products first listen for “beacon messages”. These messages can be easily decrypted and contain much of the
network’s information, such as the network’s SSID (Service Set Identifier). Here are the steps you can take:
Change the administrator’s password regularly. With every wireless networking device you use, keep in mind
that network settings (SSID, WEP keys, etc.) are stored in its firmware. Your network administrator is the only
Appendix B: Wireless Security
Security Precautions
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
113
Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
person who can change network settings. If a hacker gets a hold of the administrator’s password, he, too, can
change those settings. So, make it harder for a hacker to get that information. Change the administrator’s
password regularly.
SSID. There are several things to keep in mind about the SSID:
1. Disable Broadcast
2. Make it unique
3. Change it often
Most wireless networking devices will give you the option of broadcasting the SSID. While this option may be
more convenient, it allows anyone to log into your wireless network. This includes hackers. So, don’t broadcast
the SSID.
Wireless networking products come with a default SSID set by the factory. (The Linksys default SSID is “linksys”.)
Hackers know these defaults and can check these against your network. Change your SSID to something unique
and not something related to your company or the networking products you use.
Change your SSID regularly so that any hackers who have gained access to your wireless network will have to
start from the beginning in trying to break in.
MAC Addresses. Enable MAC Address filtering. MAC Address filtering will allow you to provide access to only
those wireless nodes with certain MAC Addresses. This makes it harder for a hacker to access your network with
a random MAC Address.
WEP Encryption. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is often looked upon as a cure-all for wireless security
concerns. This is overstating WEP’s ability. Again, this can only provide enough security to make a hacker’s job
more difficult.
There are several ways that WEP can be maximized:
IMPORTANT: Always remember that each
device in your wireless network MUST use
the same security method and passphrase or
key; otherwise, your wireless network will
not function properly.
1. Use the highest level of encryption possible
2. Use “Shared Key” authentication
3. Change your WEP key regularly
WPA. Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is the newest and best available standard in Wi-Fi security. WPA2 is the
newer version of Wi-Fi Protected Access with stronger encryption than WPA. WPA gives you a choice of two
encryption methods: TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol), which incorporates Message Integrity Code (MIC) to
Appendix B: Wireless Security
Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
114
Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
provide protection against hackers, and AES (Advanced Encryption System), which utilizes a symmetric 128-Bit
block data encryption. (AES is stronger than TKIP.) WPA2 uses TKIP + AES for encryption.
WPA Enterprise and WPA2 Enterprise use a RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) server for
authentication. RADIUS uses a RADIUS server and WEP encryption.
WPA Personal. Select the type of algorithm, TKIP or AES, and enter a password in the Passphrase field of
8-63 characters. Enter a Group Key Renewal period time between 0 and 99,999 seconds, which instructs the
Router or other device how often it should change the encryption keys.
WPA2 Personal. WPA2 uses TKIP + AES, with dynamic encryption keys. Enter a Passphrase of 8-63
characters. Then enter a Group Key Renewal period, which instructs the Router or other device how often it
should change the encryption keys.
WPA Enterprise. This method is WPA used in coordination with a RADIUS server. Enter the IP address and
port number of the RADIUS server. Then enter the key shared between the Router and its RADIUS server. Then
enter a Key Renewal Timeout period, which instructs the Router or other device how often it should change
the encryption keys.
WPA2 Enterprise. This method is WPA2 used in coordination with a RADIUS server. Enter the IP address and
port number of the RADIUS server. Then enter the key shared between the Router and its RADIUS server. Then
enter a Key Renewal Timeout period, which instructs the Router or other device how often it should change
the encryption keys.
RADIUS. This method is WEP used in coordination with a RADIUS server. Enter the IP address and port
number of the RADIUS server. Then enter the key shared between the Gateway and its RADIUS server. Enter
the WEP settings.
Implementing encryption may have a negative impact on your network’s performance, but if you are transmitting
sensitive data over your network, encryption should be used.
These security recommendations should help keep your mind at ease while you are enjoying the most flexible
and convenient technology Linksys has to offer.

Schedule 2
If this Linksys product contains open source software licensed under Version 2 of the “GNU General Public License” then
the license terms below in this Schedule 2 will apply to that open source software. The license terms below in this
Schedule 2 are from the public web site at http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright © 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU
General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software–to make sure the
software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation’s software
and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
the GNU Lesser General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make
sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you
receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs;
and that you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender
the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you
modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the
rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these
terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Appendix J: Software License Agreement

Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty
for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what
they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors’ reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a
free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have
made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone’s free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may
be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The “Program”, below, refers to any such program or
work, and a “work based on the Program” means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that
is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into
another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term “modification”.) Each licensee is
addressed as “you”.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope.
The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents
constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is
true depends on what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided
that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of
warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other
recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and
copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of
these conditions:
a You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any
change.
Appendix J: Software License Agreement
Software Licenses
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
148
Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
b You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program
or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
c If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for
such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright
notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may
redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if
the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is
not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its
terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same
sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless
of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the
intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the
Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form
under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source
code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software
interchange; or,
c Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This
alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or
executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work,
complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files,
Appendix J: Software License Agreement
Software Licenses
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
149
Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source
code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering
equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though
third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any
attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your
rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not
have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission
to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this
License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your
acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program
or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a
license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You
may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible
for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to
patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the
conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to
satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence
you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution
of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy
both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the
section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest
validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution
system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide
Appendix J: Software License Agreement
Software Licenses
Downloaded from www.Manualslib.com manuals search engine
150
Wireless-G Router for 3G/UMTS Broadband
range of software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the
author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted
interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical
distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to
time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems
or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which
applies to it and “any later version”, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or
of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different,
write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to
the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of
preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software
generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR
ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU
FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED
INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH
