Configuring Your Computer
This Quick Installation Guide provides configuration instructions for Windows 95, 98, ME, NT
4.0, and 2000 and for Macintosh OS 7.x. Please be sure that you are following the proper
instruction set for your operating system.
• Configuring Your Computer with Windows 95/98/ME begins on this page.
• Configuring Your Computer with Windows 2000 begins on page 8.
• Configuring Your Computer with Windows NT 4.0 begins on page 12.
• Configuring Your Macintosh Computer begins on page 17.
Configuring Your Computer with Windows 95/98/ME
You may find that the instructions here do not exactly match your version of Windows. This is
because these steps and screenshots were created from Windows 98. Windows 95 and Windows
Millennium Edition are very similar, but not identical, to Windows 98.
Step 1. Configure TCP/IP Settings
After you have completed the hardware setup by connecting your devices, you need to configure
your computer to connect to your Barricade. You need to determine how your ISP issues your IP
address. Many ISPs issue these numbers automatically using a networking technology known as
Dynamic Host Control Protocol, or DHCP. Other ISPs will specify your IP address and
associated numbers, which you must enter manually. This is also known as a static IP address.
How your ISP assigns your IP address determines how you will configure your computer.

Page 20
Configuring Your Barricade
Now that you have successfully configured your computer and retrieved your new network
settings from your Barricade, you are ready to configure the Barricade’s settings for your LAN.
1. Open your Web browser (i.e., Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) and click the stop
button.
2. In the “Address” field type “http://192.168.2.1” and press
<ENTER>.
3. The Barricade login screen will appear. Leave the Password field
empty and click on “login”. There is no password by default. For
security reasons, you should assign a password as soon as possible.
Note that the password login in case sensitive.
4. On the main page of the Barricade Web
console, click “Setup.”
5. The Barricade’s automated setup
process will take you through each step
for setting up your Barricade. Click
“Enter” to start the process.
Page 21
Using a password can protect your Barricade from unauthorized changes. Not using a password
can easily leave your Barricade—and your network—open to security risks. We recommend
using a password for the security of your network. If you use a password, write it down and keep
it in a safe place, or make sure you can remember it.
6. In the “Change Password” screen, enter
your current password in the “Current
Password” field. If you have not yet set a
password, leave it blank. Choose a
password for your Barricade and enter it
in the next two fields, “New Password”
and “Re-Enter Password for
Verification.”
7. Click “ENTER” when finished.
8. Select your time zone from the list and
click “ENTER.”
The LAN screen is where you configure the
LAN (Local Area Network) settings of
your Barricade. These settings will only be
visible to your local network and not to the
Internet.
9. In most applications, you should not
change the “IP address” from the
default (192.168.2.1). However, if you
are implementing your Barricade into
an existing network, you may need to
Page 22
change it to match your current addressing scheme.
By using the Barricade’s built-in DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol) server you are
allowing the Barricade to handle all the IP addressing on your Local Area Network (LAN). This
can save you much of the time and hassle of administrating your network. If you have a server
on your network that requires a static IP address, you may still use the DHCP server and
manually assign a static IP address to your server. We recommend leaving the DHCP Server
“Enabled.”
10. In most applications, you should leave
the DHCP Server “Enabled.” If you
prefer to handle all the IP addressing on
your network yourself, click disable.
11. There is usually no need to change the
IP address pool. If you change the pool
range, make sure the first three octets
match the Barricade’s IP address, i.e.,
192.168.2.xxx thru 192.168.2.yyy
A Domain Name Server (DNS) is like an
index of names and Web addresses. If you
type a Web address into your browser, such
as www.whitehouse.gov, a DNS server will find that name in its index and find the matching IP
address: 198.137.240.92. Most ISPs provide a DNS server for speed and convenience. Since you
are connecting to the Internet with dynamic IP settings, it is likely that your DNS servers are also
provided dynamically.
12. Click “ENTER” when finished.
At this point, the LAN side of your Barricade is now configured. But you must still configure it
to connect to the Internet. There are three different general configurations for high-speed Internet
connections. You need to know about your Internet connection to determine which configuration
to use. You found out most of what you need to know when you recorded your IP settings in
earlier steps. Here are some guidelines to determine which configuration you should use:
•
If you connect to the Internet using a Cable Modem, your ISP probably uses DHCP to
issue an IP address to you. If you use a Cable Modem or you know you use a
dynamic IP address, please go to “Configuring Your Barricade for a Dynamic IP
Address” on the next page.
•
If you connect to the Internet using a DSL Modem, your ISP probably requires you to
manually enter your TCP/IP settings. If you have a DSL connection or if you know
you use a static IP address, please go to “Configuring Your Barricade for a Static
IP Address” on page 26.
•
If you connect to the Internet using a DSL Modem and you use a login name and
password, your ISP uses PPPoE. If your ISP requires a login name and a password or
you know your ISP uses PPPoE, please go to “Configuring Your Barricade for
PPPoE” on page 28.
Page 23
Configuring Your Barricade for a Dynamic IP Address
1. Select “Dynamic IP address,” and click
“More Configuration.”
Both options on this page for further configuring your dynamic IP address are optional,
depending upon how your ISP works. If your ISP does not require you to change either of these,
you may skip these settings.
The @Home network usually requires your computer to have a “Host Name” to obtain an IP
address from their network.
2. If you have a host name provided by
your ISP (i.e., CX-1234-56789) enter it
in the “Host Name” field.
Some ISPs register the MAC Address of your network card. A MAC (Media Access Control)
Address is a unique identification number (in hexadecimal digits) given to each networking
device. Once registered, the ISP’s server will check to make sure that the MAC address they
have registered matches the one connecting to their servers. If it does not match, you cannot
connect. The Barricade’s MAC Address will not be the same as your network card’s address so
you may need the Barricade to “Clone” the address from your network card. Then the ISP will
find a MAC Address that matches the one they have recorded.
Page 24
3. If you need to “Clone” the MAC
Address from your network card, click
“Clone MAC Address.” The MAC
Address field will display the new
address.
4. Click “ENTER” when finished.
A Domain Name Server (DNS) is like an
index of names and Web addresses. If you
type a Web address into your browser, such as www.whitehouse.gov, a DNS server will find that
name in its index and find the matching IP address: 198.137.240.92. Most ISPs provide a DNS
server for speed and convenience. Since you are connecting to the Internet with dynamic IP
settings, it is likely that your DNS servers are also provided dynamically.
5. If you are connecting to the Internet
with a dynamic IP address, you
probably do not need to enter anything
here. However, if there is a DNS server
that you would rather use, enter the
DNS server addresses in the spaces
provided.
6. Click “ENTER” when finished.
Many ISPs use modems that automatically configure themselves. Sometimes connection
information is stored on the modem and needs to be updated. You may need to shut down and
restart your modem after you have configured your Barricade.
7. Restart your cable modem by removing the power, waiting a few seconds, and then
reconnecting it.
Congratulations! Configuration is complete and your Barricade is now connected to the Internet.
There are also some advanced configuration options that may be configured, but we do not
recommend making any changes to these options unless you need to. You can consult the User
Guide for information on these advanced settings.
For instructions for the advanced configuration options, please refer to Chapter 4 of the User
Guide found on the CD.

Configuring Your Barricade for a Static IP Address
1. Select “Static IP address,” and click
“More Configuration.”
2. Enter the IP address, subnet mask, and
gateway provided to you by your ISP in
the appropriate fields. You recorded
these numbers earlier when you
configured your computer to connect to
the Barricade.
3. Click “ENTER” when finished.
A Domain Name Server (DNS) is like an index of names and Web addresses. If you type a Web
address into your browser, such as www.whitehouse.gov, a DNS server will find that name in its
index and find the matching IP address: 198.137.240.92. Most ISPs provide a DNS server for
speed and convenience. Since you are connecting to the Internet with static IP settings, it is likely
that your ISP also provided DNS server addresses.
Page 26
4. Enter the DNS server address(es) in the
spaces provided.
5. Click “ENTER” when finished.
Many ISPs use modems that provide auto-configuration. Sometimes connection information is
stored on the modem and needs to be updated. You may need to shut down and restart your
modem after you have configured your Barricade.
6. Restart your DSL modem by removing the power, waiting a few seconds, and then
reconnecting it.
Congratulations! Configuration is complete and your Barricade is now connected to the Internet.

Name” field, otherwise, leave it blank.
4. Click “ENTER” when finished.
A Domain Name Server (DNS) is like an index of names and Web addresses. If you type a Web
address into your browser, such as www.whitehouse.gov, a DNS server will find that name in its
index and find the matching IP address: 198.137.240.92. Most ISPs provide a DNS server for
speed and convenience. Since you are connecting to the Internet with dynamic IP settings, it is
likely that your DNS servers are also provided dynamically.

5. If you are connecting to the Internet
through PPPoE, you probably do not
need to enter anything here. However,
if there is another DNS server that you
would rather use, enter the DNS server
addresses in the spaces provided.
6. Click “ENTER” when finished.
Many ISPs use modems that provide autoconfiguration. Sometimes connection
information is stored on the modem and needs to be updated. You may need to shut down and
restart your modem after you have configured your Barricade.
7. Restart your DSL modem by removing the power, waiting a few seconds, and then
reconnecting it.
Congratulations! Configuration is complete and your Barricade is now connected to the Internet.
There are also some advanced configuration options that may be configured, but we do not
recommend making any changes to these options unless you need to.
For instructions for the advanced configuration options, please refer to Chapter 4 of the User
Guide found on the CD.

Configuring Your Barricade for Dialup on Demand
1. Select “Dialup on Demand,” and click
“More Configuration.”
2. If the serial port is used for primary
Internet access, then mark the item
“Check if you only use a dial-up
modem to connect to the Internet.” If
not marked, then this connection will
only be used for backup access if the
primary WAN link fails.
3. Enter your ISP account user name
and password in the “Dial-Up
Account Information.”
4. Enter the “ Modem Initialization
String” provided by your modem manufacturer. The following is a sample initialization
string: “ATQ1SO=1&D0&K0&W” as defined below:
Q1 : Inhibit result codes to DTE
S0=1 : Auto answer on first ring
D0 : Don’t care DTR
K0 : Disables DTE/DCE flow control
W : Write command to modem memory
5. In the “Maximum Idle time” field, enter the maximum idle time for the Barricade (in
second).
6. If you are assigned a dynamic IP address every time you dial up, mark “No” for “Has your
Internet Service Provider given you an IP address?” However, if your ISP has assigned a
fixed IP address for you to use, mark “Yes” for this item and enter the IP address and subnet
mask.
7. If your ISP has given you a secondary phone number, or if you have a secondary Internet
service account, then fill in the relevant fields under “Secondary Dial-up.”

Configuring Your Computer for the Barricade Print Server
If you are not connecting your printer to your Barricade, skip this section.
With the Barricade’s built-in print server, you can connect your printer to the Barricade and print
from any computer on your network. Each computer needs to have a “client” installed that will
communicate with the Barricade’s print server. Windows 2000 and UNIX and Linux operating
systems have a print client already installed. If you are running Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000 or
NT, you must use the SMC Barricade Print Server Monitor as your print client.
