KEEBOX Wireless 11n Router
Before you Begin
Please read and make sure you understand all the prerequisites for proper installation of your new
Wireless Router. Have all the necessary information and equipment on hand before beginning the
installation.
Installation Notes
In order to establish a connection to the Internet it will be necessary to provide information to the Router
that will be stored in its memory. For some users, only their account information (Username and
Password) is required. For others, various parameters that control and define the Internet connection will
be required. You can print out the two pages below and use the tables to list this information. This way
you have a hard copy of all the information needed to setup the Router. If it is necessary to reconfigure
the device, all the necessary information can be easily accessed. Be sure to keep this information safe
and private.
Low Pass Filters
Since ADSL and telephone services share the same copper wiring to carry their respective signals, a
filtering mechanism may be necessary to avoid mutual interference. A low pass filter device can be
installed for each telephone that shares the line with the ADSL line. These filters are easy to install
passive devices that connect to the ADSL device and/or telephone using standard telephone cable. Ask
your service provider for more information about the use of low pass filters with your installation.
Operating Systems
The Router uses an HTML-based web interface for setup and management. The web configuration
manager may be accessed using any operating system capable of running web browser software,
including Windows 98 SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista.
Web Browser
Any common web browser can be used to configure the Router using the web configuration management
software. The program is designed to work best with more recently released browsers such as Opera,
Microsoft Internet Explorer® version 6.0, Netscape Navigator® version 6.2.3, or later versions. The web
browser must have JavaScript enabled. JavaScript is enabled by default on many browsers. Make sure
JavaScript has not been disabled by other software (such as virus protection or web user security
packages) that may be running on your computer.
Ethernet Port (NIC Adapter)
Any computer that uses the Router must be able to connect to it through the Ethernet port on the Router.
This connection is an Ethernet connection and therefore requires that your computer be equipped with an
Ethernet port as well. Most notebook computers are now sold with an Ethernet port already installed.
Likewise, most fully assembled desktop computers come with an Ethernet NIC adapter as standard
equipment. If your computer does not have an Ethernet port, you must install an Ethernet NIC adapter
before you can use the Router. If you must install an adapter, follow the installation instructions that come
with the Ethernet NIC adapter.
WLAN Ethernet Adapter
Any computer that uses the Wireless ADSL Router must be able to connect to it through the Wireless
Ethernet (WLAN) on the Wireless ADSL Router. This connection is a Wireless Ethernet (WLAN or WiFi)
connection and therefore requires that your computer be equipped with a Wireless Ethernet Adapter as
well. Many notebook computers are now sold with a Wireless Ethernet Adapter already installed. There is
also a Wired Ethernet port that is used to connect the WLAN adapter to your wired network. This port can
be used to configure the Wireless ADSL Router. Most fully assembled desktop computers come with an
Ethernet NIC adapter as standard equipment. If your computer does not have an Ethernet port, you must
install an Ethernet NIC adapter before you can configure the Wireless ADSL Router. If you must install an
adapter, follow the installation instructions that come with the Ethernet NIC adapter.

KEEBOX Wireless 11n Router
Additional Software
It may be necessary to install software on your computer that enables the computer to access the Internet.
Additional software must be installed if you are using the device a simple bridge. For a bridged
connection, the information needed to make and maintain the Internet connection is stored on another
computer or gateway device, not in the Router itself.
If your ADSL service is delivered through a PPPoE or PPPoA connection, the information needed to
establish and maintain the Internet connection can be stored in the Router. In this case, it is not
necessary to install software on your computer. It may however be necessary to change some settings in
the device, including account information used to identify and verify the connection.
All connections to the Internet require a unique global IP address. For bridged connections, the global IP
settings must reside in a TCP/IP enabled device on the LAN side of the bridge, such as a PC, a server, a
gateway device such as a router or similar firewall hardware. The IP address can be assigned in a
number of ways. Your network service provider will give you instructions about any additional connection
software or NIC configuration that may be required.
Information you will need from your ADSL service provider
Username
This is the Username used to log on to your ADSL service provider’s network. Your ADSL service
provider uses this to identify your account.
Password
This is the Password used, in conjunction with the Username above, to log on to your ADSL service
provider’s network. This is used to verify the identity of your account.
WAN Setting / Connection Type
These settings describe the method your ADSL service provider uses to transport data between the
Internet and your computer. Most users will use the default settings. You may need to specify one of the
following WAN Setting and Connection Type configurations (Connection Type settings listed in
parenthesis):
x PPPoE/PPoA (PPPoE LLC, PPPoA LLC or PPPoA VC-Mux)
x Bridge Mode (1483 Bridged IP LLC or 1483 Bridged IP VC Mux)
x IPoA/MER (Static IP Address) (Bridged IP LLC, 1483 Bridged IP VC Mux, 1483 Routed IP LLC,
1483 Routed IP VC-Mux or IPoA)
x MER (Dynamic IP Address) (1483 Bridged IP LLC or 1483 Bridged IP VC-Mux)
Modulation Type
ADSL uses various standardized modulation techniques to transmit data over the allotted signal
frequencies. Some users may need to change the type of modulation used for their service. The default
DSL modulation (ADSL2+ Multi-Mode) used for the Router automatically detects all types of ADSL,
ADSL2, and ADSL2+ modulation.
Security Protocol
This is the method your ADSL service provider will use to verify your Username and Password when you
log on to their network. Your Router supports the PAP and CHAP protocols.
VPI
Most users will not be required to change this setting. The Virtual Path Identifier (VPI) is used in
conjunction with the Virtual Channel Identifier (VCI) to identify the data path between your ADSL service
provider’s network and your computer. If you are setting up the Router for multiple virtual connections,
you will need to configure the VPI and VCI as instructed by your ADSL service provider for the additional
connections. This setting can be changed in the WAN Settings window of the web management interface.
2
KEEBOX Wireless 11n Router
VCI
Most users will not be required to change this setting. The Virtual Channel Identifier (VCI) used in
conjunction with the VPI to identify the data path between your ADSL service provider’s network and your
computer. If you are setting up the Router for multiple virtual connections, you will need to configure the
VPI and VCI as instructed by your ADSL service provider for the additional connections. This setting can
be changed in the WAN Settings window of the web management interface.
VCI
Most users will not be required to change this setting. The Virtual Channel Identifier (VCI) used in
conjunction with the VPI to identify the data path between your ADSL service provider’s network and your
computer. If you are setting up the Router for multiple virtual connections, you will need to configure the
VPI and VCI as instructed by your ADSL service provider for the additional connections. This setting can
be changed in the WAN Settings window of the web management interface.
Information you will need about the Router
Username
This is the Username needed access the Router’s management interface. When you attempt to connect
to the device through a web browser you will be prompted to enter this Username. The default Username
for the Router is “admin.” The user cannot change this.
Password
This is the Password you will be prompted to enter when you access the Router’s management interface.
The default Password is blank The user may change this.
LAN IP addresses for the Router
This is the IP address you will enter into the Address field of your web browser to access the Router’s
configuration graphical user interface (GUI) using a web browser. The default IP address is 192.168.10.1.
This may be changed to suit any IP address scheme the user desires. This address will be the base IP
address used for DHCP service on the LAN when DHCP is enabled.
LAN Subnet Mask for the Router
This is the subnet mask used by the Router, and will be used throughout your LAN. The default subnet
mask is 255.255.255.0. This can be changed later.
Information you will need about your LAN or computer
Ethernet NIC
If your computer has an Ethernet NIC, you can connect the Router to this Ethernet port using an Ethernet
cable. You can also use the Ethernet ports on the Router to connect to other computer or Ethernet
devices.
DHCP Client status
The ADSL Router is configured, by default, to be a DHCP server. This means that it can assign an IP
address, subnet mask, and a default gateway address to computers on your LAN. The default range of IP
addresses the Router will assign are from 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254. Your computer (or computers)
needs to be configured to obtain an IP address automatically (that is, they need to be configured as
DHCP clients.)
It is recommended that your collect and record this information here, or in some other secure place, in
case you have to re-configure your ADSL connection in the future.
Once you have the above information, you are ready to setup and configure the Router.

Wireless Tips
The following are some general wireless tips to help minimize the impact of interference within an
environment.
Assign your network a unique SSID. Do not use anything that would be identifying like “Smith Family
Network”. Choose something that you would easily identify when searching for available wireless
networks.
Do not turn off the SSID broadcast. The SSID broadcast is intended to be on and turning it off can cause
connectivity issues. The preferred method of securing a wireless network is to choose a strong form of
encryption with a strong and varied encryption key.
Note: after setting up the SSID, encryption type and encryption key/passphrase, please make a note of
them for future reference. You will need this information to connect your wireless computers to the
wireless router/access point.
Change the channel. Most wireless access points and routers are defaulted to channel 6. If you have a
site survey tool that will display the channels you can plan your channel selection around neighboring
access points to minimize interference from them. If your site survey tool does not display the channel try
using channels 1 or 11.
If using 802.11n you should be securing the network with WPA2 security.
Note: Due to Wi-Fi certification considerations if you choose WEP, WPA or WPA2-TKIP encryption this
device may operate in legacy wireless mode (802.11b/g). You may not get 802.11n performance as
these forms of encryption are not supported by the 802.11n specification.
Please also make sure that the wireless hardware is not placed in any type of shelving or enclosures.
Avoid stacking hardware on top of each other to prevent overheating issues. Maintain enough free space
around the hardware for good ventilation and airflow. There should also be plenty of free space around
the antennas to allow the wireless signal to propagate.
There are a number of other environmental factors that can impact the range of wireless devices.
1. Adjust your wireless devices so that the signal is traveling in a straight path, rather than at an
angle. The more material the signal has to pass through the more signal you will lose.
2. Keep the number of obstructions to a minimum. Each obstruction can reduce the range of a
wireless device. Position the wireless devices in a manner that will minimize the amount of
obstructions between them.
3. Building materials can have a large impact on your wireless signal. In an indoor environment, try
to position the wireless devices so that the signal passes through less dense material such as
dry wall. Dense materials like metal, solid wood, glass or even furniture may block or
degrade the signal.
4. Antenna orientation can also have a large impact on your wireless signal. Use the wireless
adapter’s site survey tool to determine the best antenna orientation for your wireless devices.
4
KEEBOX Wireless 11n Router
5. Interference from devices that produce RF (radio frequency) noise can also impact your signal.
Position your wireless devices away from anything that generates RF noise, such as
microwaves, HAM radios, Walkie-Talkies and baby monitors.
6. Any device operating on the 2.4GHz frequency will cause interference. Devices such as 2.4GHz
cordless phones or other wireless remotes operating on the 2.4GHz frequency can potentially
drop the wireless signal. Although the phone may not be in use, the base can still transmit
wireless signal. Move the phone’s base station as far away as possible from your wireless
devices.
If you are still experiencing low or no signal consider repositioning the wireless devices or
installing additional access points. The use of higher gain antennas may also provide the
necessary coverage depending on the environment.
Device Installation
The Router connects two separate physical interfaces, an ADSL (WAN) and an Ethernet (LAN) interface.
Place the Router in a location where it can be connected to the various devices as well as to a power
source. The Router should not be located where it will be exposed to moisture or excessive heat. Make
sure the cables and power cord are placed safely out of the way so they do not create a tripping hazard.
As with any electrical appliance, observe common sense safety procedures.
The Router can be placed on a shelf or desktop, ideally you should be able to see the LED indicators on
the front if you need to view them for troubleshooting.
Power on Router
The Router must be used with the power adapter included with the device.
1. Insert the AC Power Adapter cord into the power receptacle located on the rear panel of the Router
and plug the adapter into a suitable nearby power source.
2. You should see the Power LED indicator light up green.
3. If the Ethernet port is connected to a working device, check the LAN LED indicators to make sure the
connection is valid. The Router will attempt to establish the ADSL connection, if the ADSL line is
connected and the Router is properly configured this should light up after several seconds. If this is
the first time installing the device, some settings may need to be changed before the Router can
establish a connection.
Factory Reset Button
The Router may be reset to the original factory default settings by using a ballpoint or paperclip to gently
push down the reset button in the following sequence:
1. Ensure the Router is powered on.
2. Press and hold the reset button on the back of the device for approximately 5 to 8 seconds.
3. This process should take around 1 to 2 minutes.
Remember that this will wipe out any settings stored in flash memory including user account information
and LAN IP settings. The device settings will be restored to the factory default IP address 192.168.10.1
and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, the default management Username is “admin” and the default
Password is “admin.”

KEEBOX Wireless 11n Router
Network Connections
Connect ADSL Line
Use the ADSL cable included with the Router to connect it to a telephone wall socket or receptacle. Plug
one end of the cable into the ADSL port (RJ-11 receptacle) on the rear panel of the Router and insert the
other end into the RJ-11 wall socket. If you are using a low pass filter device, follow the instructions
included with the device or given to you by your service provider. The ADSL connection represents the
WAN interface, the connection to the Internet. It is the physical link to the service provider’s network
backbone and ultimately to the Internet.
Connect Router to Ethernet
The Router may be connected to a single computer or Ethernet device through the 10BASE-TX Ethernet
port on the rear panel. Any connection to an Ethernet concentrating device such as a switch or hub must
operate at a speed of 10/100 Mbps only. When connecting the Router to any Ethernet device that is
capable of operating at speeds higher than 10Mbps, be sure that the device has auto-negotiation (NWay)
enabled for the connecting port. Use standard twisted-pair cable with RJ-45 connectors. The RJ-45 port
on the Router is a crossed port (MDI-X). Follow standard Ethernet guidelines when deciding what type of
cable to use to make this connection. When connecting the Router directly to a PC or server use a normal
straight-through cable. You should use a crossed cable when connecting the Router to a normal (MDI-X)
port on a switch or hub. Use a normal straight-through cable when connecting it to an uplink (MDI-II) port
on a hub or switch. The rules governing Ethernet cable lengths apply to the LAN to Router connection. Be
sure that the cable connecting the LAN to the Router does not exceed 100 meters.
Hub or Switch to Router Connection
Connect the Router to an uplink port (MDI-II) on an Ethernet hub or switch with a straight-through cable. If
you wish to reserve the uplink port on the switch or hub for another device, connect to any on the other
MDI-X ports (1x, 2x, etc.) with a crossed cable.
Computer to Router Connection
You can connect the Router directly to a 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet adapter card (NIC) installed on a PC
using the Ethernet cable provided.

access to a specified host from various locations on the Internet. This is enabled to allow remote access
to a host by clicking a hyperlinked URL in the form hostname.dyndns.org, Many ISPs assign public IP
addresses using DHCP, this can make it difficult to locate a specific host on the LAN using standard DNS.
If for example you are running a public web server or VPN server on your LAN, this ensures that the host
can be located from the Internet if the public IP address changes. DDNS requires that an account be
setup with one of the supported DDNS providers.
