The Gigaset SE366 WLAN
Your Gigaset SE366 WLAN is a powerful but easy-to-use device that connects your PC
(WLAN) or your local network (LAN) to the Internet without the need for wires (via a DSL
or cable modem).
You can connect your PC wirelessly to the Gigaset SE366 WLAN and create a wireless
local network (WLAN). For network security, wireless transmission can be encrypted
using the WPA standard or 64/128-bit WEP.
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN allows several users to access the Internet simultaneously. A
single user account can be shared, if your Internet Provider permits this. If you want to
surf the Internet at the lowest possible cost, then the Gigaset SE366 WLAN is a convenient and effective solution.
You can connect a DSL or cable modem to the WAN interface of your Gigaset SE366
WLAN.
Despite its extensive range of functions, the Gigaset SE366 WLAN is easy for both
experts and non experts to handle. It can be configured and made operational within a
few minutes.
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN provides the new WPS function for wireless connections of
PCs or notebooks. You can activate this function with the registration button. If the
other clients in your wireless network, such as the Gigaset PC Card 300, also support
WPS, you can connect with one click only.

Wired local area network (Ethernet)
In a wired local area network, PCs communicate with one another via an Ethernet cable.
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN establishes the connection between the PCs, which you can
connect to the four Ethernet LAN ports. The PCs must be equipped with a network
socket (Ethernet). New PCs frequently already have this socket. For older PCs you will
need to install an Ethernet network card. An Ethernet cable is used to connect the PC to
the Ethernet LAN socket on the Gigaset SE366 WLAN. One cable is supplied with the
device; you can obtain additional Ethernet cables from your retailer.
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN allows all PCs to access the Internet simultaneously.

Wireless local area network (WLAN)
In a wireless local area network (WLAN), PCs are linked without wires or cables. For this,
the PCs have to be equipped with a wireless network adapter (WLAN adapter) such as a
Gigaset PC Card 300 or a Gigaset USB Adapter 300.
We generally differentiate between two types of wireless network:
u Infrastructure mode
u Ad-hoc mode
Infrastructure mode
Infrastructure mode connects wireless and wired networks with one another. In addition to the mobile stations, infrastructure mode needs an access point such as the
Gigaset SE366 WLAN. In infrastructure mode, the stations in the network always communicate via this access point. Each station that wants to be part of a wireless network
must first be registered with the access point before it can exchange data.
The access point establishes the connection between the mobile stations of a wireless
network and a wired LAN (Ethernet) or the Internet. This is described as the device's
router functionality. The router sends data packets that are not addressed to stations
within the network "outside," and forwards data packets originating from "outside" to
the appropriate station within the network.
You can use the Gigaset SE366 WLAN to connect
u wirelessly networked PCs to the Internet and
u wirelessly networked PCs to an Ethernet network.
Infrastructure mode is the default configuration of the Gigaset SE366 WLAN. This configuration is described in the quick start guide that comes with the device.
Ad-hoc mode
An ad-hoc network is a wireless network that has been configured without an access
point or a router. The mobile network components communicate with each other
directly and wirelessly form the network on an "ad-hoc" basis, i.e. as and when required.
All the stations in the network have the same rights. Ad-hoc networks are used wherever communications networks have to be set up quickly and without any existing network infrastructure, and where participants are on the move.

Linking wireless networks with the Internet
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN has a WAN port that permits all stations within its local area
network to access the Internet simultaneously. To be able to use this functionality, you
need a DSL or cable connection and a suitable modem. You can usually obtain the line
and a modem from an Internet service provider.

This illustration shows the commonest method of application. One or more PCs communicate wirelessly with the Gigaset SE366 WLAN in infrastructure mode. The Gigaset
SE366 WLAN forwards the data to the Internet via a DSL or cable modem. Data from the
Internet flows back to the PC along the same route.

The Gigaset SE366 WLAN
Wireless local area networks can work easily together with existing Ethernet networks.
If you wish to connect mobile stations to an existing wired network, you must group all
the mobile stations into a wireless network in infrastructure mode.

Access point
Ethernet
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN has four Ethernet interfaces (LAN ports). Up to four PCs can
be connected directly to these LAN ports.
All PCs can access the Internet via the Gigaset SE366 WLAN.
Note:
You can also connect an Ethernet router to a LAN port to access a larger Ethernet. If
you want to link the Gigaset WLAN network to an existing network, a large number of
settings have to be applied. It is therefore not possible for us to provide a general
example for this use; configuration must be defined separately for each individual
case. We advise having such networks configured by a specialist.

You can use various encryption methods and authentication methods (WPA/WPA2PSK,WPA/WPA2, WEP, MAC access control) to prevent unauthorised access to your wireless LAN or to make data illegible to unauthorised parties. The security settings available
to you depend on the the components used in your local network. For detailed information, please consult the section "Setting security functions for the wireless network" on
page 38.
WPS
Wifi-Protected-Setup (WPS) makes it easier to establish and encrypt a wireless network (1 click only). You no longer need to configure and synchronise the individual
components of your wireless network manually.
A wireless network has a name (SSID) and requires the encryption of data traffic to protect against the risk of eavesdropping. The access point requires authentication with an
SSID and - if encryption is activated - a key to allow a WLAN adapter to access the services.
WPS uses the encryption method WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK. Devices with WPS automatically create an SSID and a WPA encryption key (pre-shared key) and synchronise each
other.
WPS is not possible in networks using WEP encryption or WPA2/WPA authentication.
WPS provides two possibilities for registration:
u Via registration button
The access point (e.g. the Gigaset SE366 WLAN) has a WPS button, while Gigaset
devices have a button on the device’s back panel labelled Registration. After pushing this button, the device is ready to register a WLAN client (repeater or wireless
network adapter) for two minutes.
The first time this button is pushed, the device automatically creates an SSID and a
pre-shared key. If a client activates its WPS registration within these two minutes,
the security data is interchanged and a connection is established. It is ensured that
only one client is allowed to synchronise within the two minutes.

Please note that a new SSID and pre-shared key will be generated when the registration button is pushed for the first time after each factory reset of the Gigaset SE366
WLAN. This means that the clients have to be registered again.
u Via Personal Identification Number (PIN)
The PIN offers higher security for registration. No other device (e.g. of the neighbour) can log in unnoticed. A PIN is generated on one WLAN device, usually the
access point, which has to be entered on the other devices for registration. If a client
logs in with this PIN, the security data is synchronised.
It is also possible to create the PIN on one of the clients.

Features and applications
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN's wide range of features make it ideal for a large number of
applications, e.g.:
u Internet access
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN gives several users access to the Internet when a DSL or
cable modem is connected.
– As many DSL providers set up Internet access via the PPPoE protocol, the Gigaset
SE366 WLAN contains an integrated PPPoE Client, which means you no longer
need to set up this service on your PC yourself.
– Shared Internet access
If your Internet provider permits this, the Gigaset SE366 WLAN supports Internet
access for up to 252 users. In practice, multiple users in your network can surf the
Internet simultaneously using just one Internet access.
u IP TV streaming
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN allows the wireless transmission of IP TV
(Internet television) to your IP TV receiver.
Note:
Please be aware, however, that video streaming may be disrupted depending on
the following factors:
– Removal of the wireless communication partner
– Building substance (walls, power supply lines and water pipes)
– Other sources of interference (other WLAN devices, Bluetooth,
microwave, ...).
u Setting up a local network
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN permits connections
– for four devices via Ethernet ports with a transmission speed of 10 or 100 Mbps
(with automatic recognition).
– for up to 32 mobile terminals via a radio interface with a transmission speed of
up to 300 Mbps. It complies with the IEEE 802.11n standard (draft, see note
below) and can work with all products that satisfy the IEEE 802.11 n, 802.11g or
802.11 b standard.
Note:
Transmission standard IEEE 802.11n is still pending approval, which is likely
to be granted in early 2008. Your Gigaset SE366 WLAN hardware is ready
to comply with the new transmission standard. You might have to update
the software for your device once standard compliant software is available
(see page 84).
Using a Gigaset SE366 WLAN makes it easy to set up a network at home or in small
offices. For example, users can exchange data or share resources in the network,
e.g. a file server or printer.

u Security functions
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN offers comprehensive security measures:
– Firewall protection against unauthorised access from the Internet
All PCs in the local area network use the Public IP address of the Gigaset SE366
WLAN for their Internet connections, which makes them 'invisible' on the Internet. The Gigaset SE366 WLAN only allows access from the Internet if this has
been requested from within the local area network.
With the firewall, the Gigaset SE366 WLAN also offers comprehensive protection
against hacker attacks.
– Service filtering and URL filtering
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN can filter Internet access. Here you determine which
PCs may access which Internet services.
In addition, you can deactivate access to certain Internet domains and sites (URL
filtering).
– Access control and encryption for the local wireless network
You can use various encryption methods and authentication methods (WEP, WPA/
WPA2-PSK,WPA/WPA2, MAC access control) to prevent unauthorised access to
your wireless LAN or to make data illegible to unauthorised parties. The WPS feature allows you to establish a secure WLAN connection quickly and easily.
– The sending power can be adjusted to suit local conditions. If you limit the reach
of your wireless network to the size you need, you also make electronic eavesdropping more difficult.
u Other options
– Exposed Host
You can set up a PC on your local network to be a virtual server and release it for
unrestricted access from the Internet.
– Port forwarding
You can release individual services on a PC that is integrated into the network.

Procedure for installation and configuration
1. First install an Ethernet network card or a wireless Network adapter such as
the Gigaset PC Card 300 or the Gigaset USB Adapter 300 in the PCs you want to connect to the Gigaset SE366 WLAN. The installation process is described in the user
guides for these products.
Note:
When installing wireless network adapters: The default SSID for the Gigaset SE366
WLAN is ConnectionPoint.
2. Make the necessary connections (PCs, modem) to the Gigaset SE366 WLAN and
switch the device on (see the section entitled "Connecting the Gigaset SE366 WLAN"
on page 22).
3. Before the PCs can communicate with the Gigaset SE366 WLAN and with each other
in a local network, you must change their network settings. This will normally be the
case if you are using the Windows default settings.
To find out how to do this, read the document entitled “Network configuration” on
the CD-ROM. First connect just one PC to the Gigaset SE366 WLAN. You can then
carry out the basic configuration. After that you can connect further PCs.
If your clients support WPS, you can establish the link from the PC's wireless network
adapter to the Gigaset SE366 WLAN very simply: Push the registration button on the
Gigaset SE366 WLAN and activate registration mode on the client. This is described
on page 68 and in the user guide for the network adapter. You can also establish
connections to other clients manually.
4. Configure the Gigaset SE366 WLAN to activate the device's Internet access (refer to
the section entitled "Basic Setup Wizard" on page 31). To do this you will require
access data from your Internet service provider.
If you want to use the Gigaset SE366 WLAN's other functions, e.g. the comprehensive
security features, use the router's Security Setup (see page 35) or the Advanced
Settings menu (see page 44).

Connecting wirelessly to a PC without WPS
A wireless connection is made using a wireless network adapter that must be installed
in your PC. For example, this can be a Gigaset PC Card 300 or another 802.11n, 802.11g
or 802.11b-compatible wireless network adapter.
You define a Radio network by assigning all the devices an identical SSID and setting the
same encryption.
Assign the SSID of the Gigaset SE366 WLAN to the network adapters. The factory set
SSID is ConnectionPoint. If the correct SSID has been entered in your PC's wireless
network adapter, the wireless link will be established automatically once you connect
your Gigaset SE366 WLAN to the mains power supply (see page 25). You should then
configure encryption on the Gigaset SE366 WLAN and the wireless network adapter.
Your Gigaset SE366 WLAN is now ready for use:
u The power LED on the front lights up.
u The WLAN LED lights up to indicate that the Gigaset SE366 WLAN is ready to open
wireless connections.
The radio link to a PC that is connected by means of a wireless network adapter is
established automatically if the network adapter has been configured with the same
SSID as the Gigaset SE366 WLAN (see page 25). It can take a few seconds for the
wireless connection to be established. The WLAN LED flashes when data is sent or
received via this connection.
u The LAN LEDs light up if a device is connected to the respective LAN port by means
of an Ethernet cable.
In order to communicate via the Gigaset SE366 WLAN, the network must be configured
on the connected PCs. This usually happens automatically. To find out more about this,
refer to the document “Configuring the local network” on the CD.

SSID
Before the wireless network components can communicate with each other, they must
all use the same SSID (Service Set Identifier).
On delivery, the Gigaset SE366 WLAN's default SSID is ConnectionPoint.
Note:
u If you already have performed WPS registration (see page 68), you will see the
generated SSID on this screen. Do not change the SSID in this case. Otherwise, you
will have to register all connected clients again. You may even have to perform a
factory reset of your Gigaset SE366 WLAN.
u If you are not using WPS, you should change the SSID for security reasons. You
have to make this change on all wireless network adapters.
ì Enter a character string of your choice in the SSID field. The SSID is case sensitive. It
can be up to 32 alphanumeric characters long.

SSID broadcast
If this option is enabled (default), the Gigaset SE366 WLAN will send the SSID in all data
transmissions and your Gigaset SE366 WLAN's SSID will be displayed on all PCs that have
a wireless network adapter. In this case, eavesdroppers could use the SSID to gain access
to your local network.
ì Select Off to deactivate SSID broadcast.
ì Click Next > to proceed to the next step.
Setting security functions for the wireless network
In the next step you can set the encryption and authentication methods for your wireless network.
Wireless networks are even more strongly exposed to the risk of eavesdropping than
wired networks. With conventional network adapters an intruder only needs a device
with a WLAN adapter (e.g. a notebook or a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant)) with an
appropriately configured network card in order to eavesdrop on every communication
made via a nearby wireless LAN.
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN uses effective encryption methods to largely prevent eavesdropping.
You can use the following security mechanisms:
u WPA2-PSK or WPA2-PSK / WPA-PSK (see below)
u WEP encryption (Wired Equivalent Privacy, see page 40)
We recommend using WPA2-PSK if it is supported by all components in your wireless
network.
WEP encryption is not supported if you are using WPS.
You will find further options for setting data encryption and authentication in the
Advanced Settings menu (see page 69).

WPA2 / WPA with pre-shared key (PSK)
WPA is a more advanced procedure than WEP for protecting wireless networks. Dynamic
keys based on TKIP (Temporal Key Integration Protocol) offer increased security. The
new WPA2 standard uses AES for encryption.
WPA-PSK is a special WPA mode for users at home and in small companies without a
company authentication server. Encryption keys are automatically generated with the
pre-shared key, automatically changed ("rekeying") and authenticated between the
devices after a certain period of time (Rekey interval).
Every PC (network adapter) that requires access to a wireless network protected by WPA
must also support WPA. To find out whether and how you can use WPA on your PC, refer
to the user guide supplied with your network adapter.
If a PC is already successfully registered via WPS, this screen shows the generated preshared key. The pre-shared key in the advanced settings can be viewed in plain text on
the Wireless Network – Encryption page.
ì Click Next > to reach the next step.
If you are not using WPS:
ì Select the WPA2-PSK option if it is supported by all components in your wireless
network.
or
ì Select WPA2-PSK / WPA-PSK if some or all components in your wireless network
support WPA with the TKIP protocol.
ì Enter a key of your choice in the Pre-shared key field (min. 8 to max. 63 characters)
and confirm it by repeating the entry.

Note:
u It is very important that you make a note of the Pre-shared key. You will need
this information to configure the wireless network adapters correctly.
u When you have completed the Security Setup Wizard you must also change
the encryption data of the wireless network adapters in the connected PCs
since, without the change, they will not be able to access the Gigaset SE366
WLAN's wireless network.
ì To go to the next step, click Next >.
WEP encryption
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is an encryption procedure for radio signals in wireless
networks and complies with the IEEE 802.11 standard.
If you transmit data wirelessly and not all components in your wireless network support
the higher security standard WPA (see page 39), we recommend that you activate WEP
Encryption on these network components.
You cannot user WEP together with registration via WPS.
You can choose either the standard 64-bit keys or the more robust 128-bit keys for
encryption. The keys are generated in hexadecimal or ASCII format. You must use the
same keys for the Gigaset SE366 WLAN and all your wireless network adapters.
ì Select the Key length: 64 or 128-bit.
ì Select the Input type, i.e. whether you wish to enter the key manually or have it
generated automatically by means of a Passphrase.

– With a 128-bit encryption depth the key is exactly 26 characters long
(Example of a valid key: 234567ABC8912345DEF1234567)
If you select ASCII as the key type, you can use the characters 0 to 9, A to Z, and a
to z plus the special characters in the ASCII character set.
– With a 64-bit encryption depth the key is exactly 5 characters long.
(Example of a valid key: GIGA1)
– With a 128-bit encryption depth the key is exactly 13 characters long.

Attack detection
If the firewall functions of your Gigaset SE366 WLAN are activated, the device monitors
and limits access by incoming data traffic via the Internet connection with a function
called Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI). This allows the Gigaset SE366 WLAN to identify
and block certain types of attack from the network, e.g. Denial of Service (DoS). DoS
attacks are aimed at devices and networks with Internet connections. The aim is not so
much to steal data but to paralyse the computer or network so that network resources
are no longer available. A typical hacker attack involves a remote computer claiming to
be the paralysed device in order to take its place and receive the data intended for it.
You can use the Attack Detection function to change the standard firewall settings and
arrange to be notified by email about any attempted hacker attacks.

Setting up the NAT function
Your Gigaset SE366 WLAN comes provided with the NAT (Network Address Translation)
function. With address translation, several users on your local network can access the
Internet via one or more public IP addresses. In the default setting, all local IP addresses
are mapped to your router's public IP address.
One property of NAT is that data from the Internet is not allowed into your local network
unless it has been explicitly requested by one of the PCs on that network. Most Internet
applications run behind the NAT firewall without any problems. If you request Internet
pages, for example, or send and receive e-mails, the request for data from the Internet
comes from a PC on the local network and the router allows the data through. The
router opens exactly one port for the application. A port is an internal PC address
through which the data is exchanged between a server on the Internet and a client on a
PC in the local network. Communicating via a port follows the rules of a specific protocol
(TCP or UDP).
If an external application tries to send a call to a PC within the local network, the router
will block it. There is no open port via which the data could enter the local network.
Some applications, such as games on the Internet, require several links, i.e. several ports
so that the players can communicate with each other. In addition, these applications
must also be permitted to send requests from other users on the Internet to the user on
the local network. Initially, these applications will not work if Network Address Translation (NAT) is activated.

Configuring the Advanced Settings
Using port forwarding (the forwarding of requests to specific ports) you make the router
forward requests from the Internet for a certain service, e.g a game, to the appropriate
port or ports on the PC on which the game is running.
Port triggering is a specific variant of port forwarding. Unlike port forwarding, in this
case the Gigaset SE366 WLAN forwards data from the set port block to the PC which has
previously sent data to the Internet via a certain port (trigger port). This means that permission for data transfer is not tied to one specific PC in your network, but only to the
port numbers of the required Internet service.
Where configuration is concerned, this means:
u You have to define a so-called trigger port for the application and also the protocol
(TCP or UDP) that this port uses. To this trigger port you then assign the public ports
that have to be opened for the application.
u The router checks all outgoing data for port number and protocol. If it recognises a
match of port and protocol to a defined trigger port, then it will open the assigned
public ports and notes the IP address of the PC that sent the data. If data comes back
from the Internet via one of these public ports, it allows the data through and routes
it to the right PC. A trigger event always comes from a PC within the local network.
If a trigger port is addressed from outside, it is simply ignored by the router.
Note:
u An application that is configured for port triggering can only be run by one user in
the local network at a time.
u As long as the public ports are open, they can be used by unauthorised persons to
gain access to a PC in the local network.
When the Gigaset SE366 WLAN is delivered, the NAT function (Network Address Translation) is activated, i.e. all IP addresses of PCs in the local network are mapped to the
router's public IP address when accessing the Internet.
You can use the NAT settings for the Gigaset SE366 WLAN to
u set up port triggering for special applications (see page 58),
u set up the Gigaset SE366 WLAN as a virtual server by configuring Port Forwarding
(see page 59),
u open the firewall for selected PCs (see page 60).
Note:
For the functions described below you must make sure that the IP addresses of the PCs
do not change. If the IP addresses of the PCs are assigned via the DHCP server of the
Gigaset SE366 WLAN, you must select the option Never expires for the settings on
the Local Network screen for Lease time (see page 64) or assign static IP addresses
for the PCs.

Port Forwarding
If you configure Port Forwarding, the Gigaset SE366 WLAN outwardly assumes the role
of the server. It receives requests from remote users under its public IP address and automatically redirects them to local PCs. The private IP addresses of the servers on the local
network remain protected.
Internet services are addressed via defined port numbers. The Gigaset SE366 WLAN
needs a mapping table of the port numbers to redirect the service requests to the server
that actually provides the service. For this, Port Forwarding has to be configured.
ì To set up port forwarding for a service, select Port Forwarding in the Address

Opening the firewall for selected PCs (Exposed Host)
You can set up a client as an exposed host in your local network. Your device will then
forward all incoming data traffic from the Internet to this client. This will enable you, for
example, to operate your own Web server on one of the clients in your local network
and make it accessible to Internet users.
As an exposed host, your local client is directly visible on the Internet and therefore
particularly exposed to risk (e.g. from hacker attacks). You should only activate this
function where it is absolutely necessary (e.g. to operate a Web server) and where
other functions (e.g. port forwarding) are not adequate. In this case you should take
appropriate measures on the clients concerned.
Note:
Only one PC per public IP address can be set up as Exposed Host (see also the section
entitled "Port Forwarding" on page 59.

Dynamic DNS
Any service you provide on the Internet can be accessed via a Domain name. Your
router's Public IP address is assigned to this domain name. If your Internet Service Provider for your local network's WAN connection assigns the IP address dynamically, the IP
address of the router may change. The assignment to the domain name will no longer
be valid and your service will no longer be available.
In this case you must ensure that the assignment of the IP address to the domain name
is constantly updated. This is handled by the dynamic DNS service (DynDNS). You can
use the DynDNS service to assign your Gigaset SE366 WLAN an individual static domain
name on the Internet even if it does not have a static IP address.
There are various providers on the Internet who offer a free DynDNS service. The
Gigaset SE366 WLAN uses the DynDNS service from DynDNS.org and from TZO.org. If
you use this DynDNS provider's service, then your service can be reached on the Internet
as a subdomain of one of this provider's domains.
If you have activated the device's DynDNS function, it will monitor its public IP address.
When this changes, it sets up a connection to the Internet site and updates its IP address
there.
Note:
You will have to open an account with the provider before you can use the Gigaset
SE366 WLAN's DynDNS function. Follow the instructions on the provider's web site.
Enter the user data during configuration of the router.

QoS (Quality of Service)
Many communication and multimedia applications require high speed and large bandwidths to transfer data between the local area network and the Internet. However, for
many applications there is often only one Internet connection with limited capacity
available. QoS (Quality of Service) divides this capacity between the different applications and provides undelayed, continuous data transfer where data packets with higher
priority are given transmission preference.
ì In the Advanced Settings – Internet menu, select the entry QoS.

Note:
New settings only take effect after rebooting the Gigaset SE366 WLAN. If necessary, reconfigure the IP address on your PC (including one that is statically
assigned) so that it matches the new configuration.
Configuring the DHCP server
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN has a DHCP server, which is enabled on delivery. As a result,
the IP addresses of the PCs are automatically assigned by the Gigaset SE366 WLAN.
Note:
u If the Gigaset SE366 WLAN's DHCP server is activated, you can configure the net-
work setting on the PC so that the option Obtain an IP address automatically is
set. To find out how to do this, please refer to the document “Configuring the local
network” on the CD.
u If you deactivate the DHCP server, you will have to assign a static IP address for the
PCs via the network settings.
ì To activate the DHCP server, select On.
ì If the DHCP server is active, you can define a Lease time. The Lease time determines
the period for which the PCs keep the IP addresses assigned to them without any
change.
Note:
If you select the Never expires option, the IP addresses are never changed. You
must select this option if you want to make NAT or firewall settings using the IP
addresses of the PCs, or else you must assign these PCs static IP addresses.
ì Define the range of IP addresses which the Gigaset SE366 WLAN should use to automatically assign IP addresses to PCs. Define the First issued IP address and the Last

Transmission mode
The transmission mode defines which IEEE standard you use to transmit data in
your network. IEEE 802.11g permits data transfer up to 54 Mbps, IEEE 802.11b up
to 11 Mbps. In contrast, IEEE 802.11n (draft, see page 15) reaches a transmission rate
of up to 300 Mbps.
ì For the best possible data transfer rates in your network select IEEE 802.11b/g/n
(mixed).
SSID
For the wireless network components to communicate with each other, they must have
the same SSID (Service Set Identifier).
Note:
If you have already activated WPS (see page 68), the generated SSID is displayed on
this screen. You should not change this SSID here manually. Otherwise, the registered
clients will no longer have access to your wireless network.
On delivery, the Gigaset SE366 WLAN's default SSID is ConnectionPoint. If you are not
using WPS, you should change this SSID for security reasons.
For security reasons you should deactivate SSID broadcast (see page 67).
To change the SSID manually, enter a character string of your choice. The SSID is case
sensitive. It can be up to 32 alphanumeric characters long.
Note:
The connection to the wireless network adapters will be interrupted until you enter

If you send data over wireless channels, we recommend that you activate encryption
(WEP or WPA) on your wireless network components.
Note:
If you have already performed WPS registration, WPA2-PSK/WPA-PSK encryption is
activated. The following description is only valid if you are not using WPS.
ì In the Wireless Network menu, select Encryption.
The following security mechanisms are currently available:
u WPA2-PSK and WPA2-PSK / WPA-PSK (see page 70)
u WPA2 and WPA2 / WPA with authentication server (see page 70)

WPA with pre-shared key (WPA-PSK)
WPA-PSK is a special WPA mode that provides encryption protection for users at home
and in small companies without a company authentication server. Encryption keys are
automatically generated with the pre-shared key and automatically changed (rekeying)
and authenticated between the devices after a certain period of time (Rekey interval).
Which standard of encryption you can choose depends on the components in your
wireless network. Every PC (network adapter) that requires access to a wireless network
protected by WPA must also support WPA. To find out whether and how you can use
WPA on your PC, read your network adapter's operating instructions. If all components
support WPA2, select the WPA2-PSK option. If you are using network adapters that only
support WPA, select the WPA2-PSK / WPA-PSK option. The entries described below are
the same for both options.
ì Select the required option in the Security field.
ì Enter a key in the Pre-shared key field (up to 63 alphanumeric characters) and

ì Apply the settings by clicking OK.
WPA2 and WPA with authentication server
In large networks (e.g. in business enterprises) WPA enables the use of an additional
authentication service. In this case, user access is controlled by user accounts and passwords, in addition to WPA encryption. A RADIUS server acts as an authentication server.
You can select the new standard WPA2 if this is supported by all components in your
wireless network, or select WPA2 / WPA if you are using devices that only support WPA.
You cannot use WPA2 / WPA together with WPS.

Your device's configuration program is not effectively protected against unauthorised access as you have not changed the password since setup. The section entitled
"System Password" on page 79 describes how to avoid this security risk.
u Identification of your wireless network visible or not changed
Unauthorised users can also find your wireless network easily as you have not
changed the ID for your wireless network (SSID) since setup and have not deactivated SSID broadcast. The section entitled "Configuration for wireless connections"
on page 65 describes how to avoid this security risk.
u Encryption for your wireless network not activated
None of the data in your wireless network is encrypted when transmitted and can
therefore easily be intercepted. Unauthorised users can also easily access your network, your PCs and your Internet connection by this means. The section entitled
"Setting encryption" on page 69 describes how to avoid this security risk.

Internet. The section entitled "Setting up the NAT function" on page 56 describes
how to avoid this security risk.
u One or more of your local clients directly exposed to the Internet
One or more clients in your network are directly visible to the Internet as exposed
hosts and therefore particularly exposed to risk (e.g. hacker attacks). You should
only activate this function where it is absolutely necessary (e.g. to operate a Web
server) and where other functions (e.g. port forwarding) are not adequate. In this
case you should take appropriate measures on the clients concerned. The section
entitled "Opening the firewall for selected PCs (Exposed Host)" on page 60 describes
how to avoid this security risk.

Symptom
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN or
other PCs cannot be reached
by a PC in the connected
LAN with a ping command.
No connection to the
Gigaset SE366 WLAN's
configuration interface.
Possible cause and remedial actions
ì Make sure that TCP/IP has been installed and configured on all the PCs on the local network.
ì Check that the IP addresses have been correctly
configured. In most cases you can use the DHCP
function of the Gigaset SE366 WLAN to assign
dynamic addresses to the PCs in the LAN. In this
case, you must configure the TCP/IP settings of
all the PCs so that they obtain their IP address
automatically.
ì
If you configure the IP addresses in the LAN manually, remember to use subnet mask 255.255.255.x.
This means that the first three parts of the IP
address on each PC and the Gigaset SE366 WLAN
must be identical. The device must also be configured as DNS server.
Use the ping command to check whether you can
establish a network connection to the Gigaset
SE366 WLAN.
ì Check the network cable between the PC you want
to use to manage the device and the Gigaset SE366
WLAN.
ì If the PC you want to use is in the router's local network, make sure that you are using the correct
IP address administration (see above).
ì If the PC you want to use is not in the router's local
network, it must be authorised via Remote Management.
Reset the Gigaset SE366 WLAN (see page 21).
Password forgotten or lost
ì
You cannot access a
resource (drive or printer)
on another PC.
Warning: Please bear in mind that this will return all
the configuration settings to the factory settings.
ì Make sure that TCP/IP has been installed and configured on all the PCs on the local network and that
the PCs all belong to the same workgroup.
ì Check whether the resource has been released on
the PC in question and whether you have the necessary access rights.
ì Printing: Check whether the printer has been set up
as a network printer.

Glossary
Access point
An access point such as the Gigaset SE366 WLAN is the central element in a wireless
local area network (WLAN). It handles connection of the wireless-linked network components and regulates data traffic in the wireless network. The access point also serves
as an interface to other networks, e.g. an existing Ethernet LAN or via a modem to the
Internet. The network mode for wireless networks with an access point is called
Infrastructure mode.
Ad-hoc mode
Ad-hoc mode describes wireless local networks (WLANs) in which the network components set up a spontaneous network without an Access point, e.g. several notebooks in
a conference. All the network components are peers. They must be equipped with a
wireless Network adapter.
Beacon
Beacons are data packets that are sent by devices in a wireless network to all other
devices to indicate that they are available and ready to receive. Beacons are also used to
synchronise the wireless network. A beacon interval is the period between two beacons
in milliseconds.
Bridge
A bridge connects several network segments to form a joint network, e.g. to build a TCP/
IP network. The segments can have different physical characteristics, e.g. different connections such as Ethernet and wireless LANs. Linking individual segments via bridges
makes it possible to build local networks of practically unlimited size.
See also: Switch, Hub, Router, Gateway
Broadcast
A broadcast is a data packet that is not directed to a particular recipient but to all the
components in a network. The Gigaset SE366 WLAN does not pass broadcast packets on
to the Internet; they always remain within the local area network (LAN) administered by
the Gigaset SE366 WLAN.
BSSID
Basic Service Set ID
The BSSID is used for unique differentiation between one wireless network (WLAN) and
another. In Infrastructure mode the BSSID is the MAC address of the Access point. In
wireless networks in Ad-hoc mode the BSSID is the MAC address of any one of the participants.

Client
A client is an application that requests a service from a server. For example, an HTTP
client on a PC in a local network requests data, i.e. Web pages, from an HTTP server
on the Internet. Frequently the network component (e.g. the PC) on which the client
application is running is also called a client.
Connect on demand
Connect on demand means that applications such as a Web browser, Messenger and Email automatically open an Internet connection when they are launched. This can lead
to high charges if you are not using a Flat rate. This function can be deactivated at the
Gigaset SE366 WLAN to save call charges.
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
DHCP handles the automatic assignment of IP addresses to network components. It was
developed due to the fact that in large networks – especially the Internet – defining
IP addresses is very complex as participants frequently move, drop out or new ones join.
A DHCP server automatically assigns the connected network components
(DHCP Clients) Dynamic IP addresses from a defined IP pool range, thus saving a great
deal of configuration work. In addition, it also allows address blocks to be used more
effectively: Since not all participants are in the network at the same time, the same
IP address can be assigned to different network components in succession as and when
required.
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN includes a DHCP server and can automatically assign
IP addresses to PCs in the local network. You can specify that the IP addresses for certain
PCs are never changed.
DHCP server
See DHCP
DMZ
Demilitarized Zone, see also Exposed Host
DMZ describes a part of a network that is outside the Firewall. A DMZ is set up, as it
were, between a network you want to protect (e.g. a LAN) and a non-secure network
(e.g. the Internet). A DMZ is useful if you want to offer Server services on the Internet
which, for security reasons, will not run behind the firewall, or if Internet applications
do not function correctly behind a firewall. A DMZ permits unrestricted access from the
Internet to only one or a few network components, while the other network components remain secure behind the firewall.

DNS
Domain Name System
DNS permits the assignment of IP addresses to computers or Domain names, which are
easier to remember. A DNS server must administer this information for each LAN with
an Internet connection. As soon as a page on the Internet is called up, the browser
obtains the corresponding IP address from the DNS server so that it can establish the
connection.
On the Internet. the assignment of domain names to IP addresses is based on a hierarchical system. A local PC only knows the address of the local name server. This in turn
knows all the addresses of the PCs in the local network and the next higher name
servers, which again know addresses and the next higher name servers.
DNS server
See DNS
Domain name
The domain name is the reference to one or more Web servers on the Internet, e.g.
gigaset.com. The domain name is mapped to the respective IP address via the DNS service.
DoS attack
Denial of Service
A DoS attack is a particular form of hacker attack directed at computers and networks
with a connection to the Internet. The aim is not so much to steal data but to paralyse
the computer or network so severely that the network resources are no longer available.
A typical hacker attack involves a remote computer claiming that it is acting on behalf
of a paralysed computer, for example, and receiving the data intended for you.
DSL
Digital Subscriber Line
DSL is a data transmission technology in which a connection to the Internet can be run
over normal telephone lines. A DSL connection is supplied by an Internet Provider. It
requires a DSL modem.
DTIM
Delivery Traffic Indication Message
A DTIM is a signal that is sent by an access point as part of a Beacon to a client device in
power-saving mode to indicate that a data packet is ready for delivery. The DTIM interval
defines the frequency with which a DTIM appears in a series of beacon packets.

DynDNS
Dynamic DNS
The assignment of Domain names and IP addresses is handled by the Domain Name
Service (DNS). This service is now enhanced with so-called Dynamic DNS (DynDNS) for
Dynamic IP addresses. This enables the use of a network component with a dynamic
IP address as a Server on the Internet. DynDNS ensures that a service can always be
addressed on the Internet under the same domain name regardless of the current
IP address.
Dynamic IP address
A dynamic IP address is assigned to a network component automatically by DHCP. This
means that the IP address of a network component can change with every login or at
certain intervals.

Encryption
Encryption protects confidential information against unauthorised access. With an
encryption system, data packets can be sent securely over a network. The Gigaset SE366
WLAN offers WEP encryption and WPA encryption for secure data transmission over
wireless networks.
Ethernet
Ethernet is a network technology for local networks (LANs) defined by the IEEE as standard IEEE 802.3. Ethernet uses a baseband cable with a data transmission rate of 10 or

IEEE 802.11
IEEE 802.11 is a standard for wireless LANs operating in the 2.4 GHz band. In so-called
Infrastructure mode terminals can be connected to a base station (Access point) or they
can connect with each other spontaneously (Ad-hoc mode).
IGMP
Internet Group Management Protocol
IGMP is an Internet Protocol that enables an Internet computer to inform neighbouring
routers that it is a member of a multicast group. With multicasting, a computer can send
content on the Internet to several other computers that have registered an interest in
the first computer's content. Multicasting can, for example, be used for multimedia programs for media streaming to recipients that have set up multicast group membership.
Infrastructure mode
Infrastructure mode is a way of operating wireless local networks (WLANs) in which an
Access point handles the data traffic. Network components cannot establish a direct
connection with each other as is the case in Ad-hoc mode.

Internet
The Internet is a wide-area network (WAN) linking several million users around the
world. A number of Protocols have been created for exchanging data, and these are
known collectively under the name TCP/IP. All participants on the Internet can be identified by an IP address. Servers are addressed by Domain names (e.g. gigaset.com).
Domain names are assigned to IP addresses by the Domain Name Service (DNS).
Among the most important Internet services are:
u electronic mail (email)
u the World Wide Web (WWW)
u file transfer (FTP)
u discussion forums (Usenet / Newsgroups)
Internet Provider
An Internet provider (Internet Service Provider) offers access to the Internet for a fee.
IP
Internet protocol
The IP Protocol is one of the TCP/IP protocols. It is responsible for addressing parties in a
network using IP addresses, and routes data from the sender to the recipient. It decides
the paths along which the data packets travel from the sender to the recipient in a complex network (routing).
IP address
An IP address is a network-wide unique address for a network component in a network
based on the TCP/IP protocol (e.g. in a local area network (LAN) or on the Internet). The
IP address has four parts (values from 0 to 255) separated by periods (e.g. 192.168.1.1).
The IP address consists of the network address and the PC address. Depending on the
Subnet mask, one, two or three parts form the network address, the remainder the PC
address. You can find out the IP address of your PC by entering ipconfig in the command prompt.
IP addresses can be assigned manually (see Static IP address) or automatically (see
Dynamic IP address).
On the Internet, Domain names are normally used instead of IP addresses. DNS is
responsible for assigning domain names to IP addresses.
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN has a Private IP address and a Public IP address.
IP pool range
The Gigaset SE366 WLAN's IP address pool defines a range of IP addresses that the
router's DHCP server can use to assign Dynamic IP addresses.

LAN
Local Area Network
A local area network (or local network) links network components so that they can
exchange data and share resources. The physical range is restricted to a particular area
(a site). As a rule, the users and operators are identical. A local network can be connected to other local networks or a wide area network (WAN) such as the Internet.
With the Gigaset SE366 WLAN you can set up a wired local Ethernet network and a wireless IEEE 802.11g standard network (WLAN).
Lease time
The lease time defines the period for which PCs keep the Dynamic IP address assigned
to them by the DHCP server without changing it.
Local IP address
See Private IP address
MAC address
Media Access Control
The MAC address is used for the globally unique identification of a Network adapter. It
comprises six parts (hexadecimal numbers), e.g. 00-90-96-34-00-1A. The MAC address
is assigned by the network adapter's manufacturer.
Mbps
Million bits per second
Specification of the transfer speed in a network.
MER
MAC Encapsulated Routing
Special form of transmission protocol for the Internet.
MRU
Maximum Receive Unit
The MRU defines the maximum user data volume within a data packet.
MTU
Maximum Transmission Unit
The MTU defines the maximum length of a data packet that can be carried over the network at any one time.

NAT
Network Address Translation
NAT is a method for converting IP addresses (Private IP addresses) within a network into
one or more Public IP addresses on the Internet. With NAT several network components
in a LAN can share the router's public IP address to connect to the Internet. The network
components on the local network are hidden behind the router's IP address, which is
registered on the Internet. Because of this security function, NAT is frequently used as
part of a network Firewall. If you want to make services on a PC in the local network
available on the Internet despite NAT, you can configure the Gigaset SE366 WLAN as a
Virtual server.
Network
A network is a group of devices connected in wired or wireless mode so that they can
share resources such as data and peripherals. A general distinction is made between
local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs).
Network adapter
A network adapter is the hardware device that creates the connection between a network component and a local network. The connection can be wired or wireless. An Ethernet network card is an example of a wired network adapter. The Gigaset PC Card 300
and the Gigaset USB Adapter 300 are examples of wireless network adapters.
A network adapter has a unique address, the MAC address.
Public IP address
The public IP address (also known as global IP address) is a network component's
address on the Internet. It is assigned by the Internet Provider. Devices that create a link
from a LAN to the Internet, such as the Gigaset SE366 WLAN, have a public and a Private
IP address.
Port
Data is exchanged between two applications in a network across a port. The port
number addresses an application within a network component. The combination of IP
address/port number uniquely identifies the recipient or sender of a data packet within
a network. Some applications (e.g. Internet services such as HTTP or FTP) work with
fixed port numbers; others are allocated a free port number whenever they need one.
Port Forwarding
In port forwarding the Gigaset SE366 WLAN directs data packets from the Internet that
are addressed to a particular Port to the corresponding port of the appropriate network
component. This enables servers within the local area network to offer services on the
Internet without them needing a Public IP address.

PPPoA
Point-to-Point Protocol over ATM
PPPoA is a Protocol that connects network components in a local Ethernet network to
the Internet via an ATM network.
PPPoE
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet
PPPoE is a Protocol that connects network components in a local Ethernet network to
the Internet via a modem.
Private IP address
The private IP address (also known as the local IP address) is a network component's
address within the local network (LAN). The network operator can assign any address
he or she wants. Devices that act as a link from a local network, such as the Gigaset
SE366 WLAN, have a private and a Public IP address.
Protocol
A protocol describes the agreements for communicating in a network. It contains rules
for opening, managing and closing a connection, as well as about data formats, time
frames and how to handle potential errors. Communication between two applications
requires different protocols at different levels, e.g. the TCP/IP protocols on the Internet.
Radio network
See WLAN
RADIUS server
A RADIUS server acts as a central authentication server. In doing so, the RADIUS server
handles authentication processes (user/password verification). It also provides parameters for the connection to the Client. The RADIUS server obtains the data for this function from its own configuration files, its own configuration databases or requests them
from other databases or directory services that store access data (e.g. user name and
password).
Rekey interval
The rekey interval is the period after which new keys are automatically generated for
data encryption with WPA-PSK.
Remote management
Remote management refers to the ability to manage a network from a network component that is actually outside the local area network (LAN).
Repeater
A repeater extends the range of a wireless local area network by relaying data from the
Access point to additional PCs or Network adapter.

Roaming
Roaming extends the range of a wireless LAN by using several Access points with the
same SSID and the same radio channel and linked via Ethernet. The PCs in the network
can switch dynamically between several access points without losing the existing network connection.
Router
A router directs data packets from one local network (LAN) to another via the fastest
route. A router makes it possible to connect networks that have different network technologies. For example, it can link a local network via Ethernet or WLAN technology to
the Internet.
See also Bridge, Switch, Hub, Gateway
Server
A server makes a service available to other network components (Clients). The term
"server" is often used to refer to a computer or PC. However, it can also mean an application that provides a particular service such as DNS or a Web service.
SMTP
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol
The SMTP Protocol is part of the TCP/IP protocol family. It governs the exchange of electronic mail on the Internet. Your Internet Provider gives you access to an SMTP server.
SNMP
Simple Network Management Protocol
The SNMP Protocol is part of the TCP/IP protocol family. It provides a simple procedure
for network administration based on a system of shared information for management
data and network management messages (known as traps), and reports the occurrence
of events within the monitored network (e.g. an alarm message or notification of
configuration changes).
SPI
Stateful Packet Inspection
Your device uses SPI to monitor and limit access by traffic incoming from the Internet.
This allows it to identify and block certain types of attack such as Denial of Service (DoS).
A typical DoS attack may involve a remote computer paralysing a system and then
claiming to be the paralysed device in order to receive data intended for it.
SSID
Service Set Identifier
The SSID is used to identify the stations in a wireless network (WLAN). All wireless network components with the same SSID form a common network. The SSID can be
assigned by the network operator.

Static IP address
A static IP address is assigned to a network component manually during network
configuration. Unlike a Dynamic IP address, a static IP address never changes.
Subnet
A subnet divides a network into smaller units.
Subnet mask
The subnet mask determines how many parts of a network's IP address represent the
network address and how many parts represent the PC address.
The subnet mask in a network administered by the Gigaset SE366 WLAN is always
255.255.255.0. This means that the first three parts of the IP address form the network
address and only the final part is used for the PC address. In this case, the first three
parts of the IP address of all network components are therefore always the same.
Switch
Like a Hub, a switch is an element used to link different network segments or components. Unlike a hub, however, a switch has its own intelligence, which enables it to forward packets only to the subnet or network component for which they are intended.

TCP
Transmission Control Protocol
The TCP Protocol is part of the TCP/IP protocol family. TCP handles data transport
between communication partners (applications). TCP is a session-based transmission
protocol, i.e. it sets up, monitors and terminates a connection for transporting data.
See also UDP
TCP/IP
Protocol family on which the Internet is based. IP forms the basis for every computer-tocomputer connection. TCP provides applications with a reliable transmission link in the
form of a continuous data stream. TCP/IP is the basis on which services such as WWW,
Mail and News are built. There are other protocols as well.
TKIP
The Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) is part of the IEEE 802.11i standard and is
used to encrypt data in wireless networks.
UDP
User Datagram Protocol
UDP is a Protocol from the TCP/IP protocol family, which handles data transport between
two communication partners (applications). Unlike TCP, UDP is a non-session based protocol. It does not establish a static connection. The data packets, so-called datagrams,
are sent as a Broadcast. The recipient alone is responsible for making sure the data is
received. The sender is not notified about whether or not it is received.

UPnP
Universal Plug & Play
UPnP technology is used to spontaneously link home or small office networks. Devices
that support UPnP carry out their network configuration automatically once they are
connected to a network. They also provide their own services or use services of other
devices on the network automatically.
URL
Universal Resource Locator
Globally unique address of a domain on the Internet.
Virtual server
A virtual Server provides a service on the Internet that runs on another network component, not on the server itself. The Gigaset SE366 WLAN can be configured as a virtual
server. It will then direct incoming calls for a service via Port Forwarding directly to the
appropriate Port of the network component in the local network.
WAN
Wide Area Network
A WAN is a wide area network, which is not restricted to one particular area. The Internet
is the most frequently used WAN. A WAN is run by one or more public providers to enable private access. You access the Internet via an Internet Provider.
WEP
Wired Equivalent Privacy
WEP is a security protocol defined in the IEEE 802.11 standard. It is used to protect wireless transmissions in a WLAN against unauthorised access with Encryption of the data
transmitted.
WLAN
Wireless LAN
Wireless LANs enable network components to communicate with a network using radio
waves as the transport medium. A wireless LAN can be connected as an extension to an
existing wired LAN or it can form the basis for a new network. The basic element of a
wireless network is the radio cell. This is the area in which wireless communication takes
place. A WLAN can be operated in Ad-hoc mode or Infrastructure mode.
WLAN is currently specified in the IEEE 802.11 standard. The Gigaset SE366 WLAN hardware complies with standard 802.11n (draft). A software update will be provided when
the standard is passed.
WPA
WPA was developed to improve the security provided by WEP. WPA uses more complex
procedures to generate keys, e.g. TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol). In addition,
WPA can use an authentication server (e.g. a RADIUS server) to improve security.

WPA-PSK
WPA Pre-shared Key
Variant of WPA data encryption in which new keys are generated automatically at regular intervals by means of a keyword (pre-shared key). The key is updated at defined intervals (Rekey interval).
WPS
WiFi Protected Setup
WPS simplifies the setting up of wireless networks.
WPS automatically sets up secure wireless network. Access points automatically generate a network ID (SSID) and WPA-PSK Encryption automatically. Clients can be connected either by entering a PIN or using special registration buttons on the access point
and client.
