easier than a software Multi-Homing. First the user has to prepare three
network cables, and connect them to the LAN, WAN 1 and WAN 2
connectors respectively. The LAN interface has to connect to the office’s
LAN network on the same HUB/Switch. The WAN 1 interface has to
connect with a WAN 1 router, DSL modem, or Cable modem. The WAN 2
interface has to connect with a WAN 2 router, DSL modem, or Cable
modem.

Quick Setup
WebUI Configuration example
STEP 1:
Connect both the Administrator’s PC and the LAN port of the Multi-Homing
Dual WAN Firewall Router to a hub or switch. Make sure there is a link light
on the hub/switch for both connections. The Multi-Homing Dual WAN Firewall
Router has an embedded web server used for management and
configuration. Use a web browser to display the configurations of the
Multi-Homing (such as Internet Explorer 4(or above) or Netscape 4.0(or
above) with full java script support). The default IP address of the
Multi-Homing is 192.168.1.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. Therefore,
the IP address of the Administrator PC must be in the range between
192.168.1.2 /24– 192.168.1.254/24.
If the company’s LAN IP Address is not subnet of 192.168.1.0, (i.e. LAN IP
Address is 172.16.0.1) the Administrator must change his/her PC IP address
to be within the same range of the LAN subnet (i.e. 192.168.0.0). Reboot
the PC if necessary.
By default, the Multi-Homing Dual WAN Firewall Router Multi-Homing is
shipped with its DHCP Server function enabled. This means the client
computers on the LAN network including the Administrator PC can set their
TCP/IP settings to automatically obtain an IP address from the Multi-Homing
Dual WAN Firewall Router.
The following table is a list of private IP addresses. These addresses may
not be used as a WAN 1 IP address.
10.0.0.0 ~ 10.255.255.255
172.16.0.0 ~ 172.31.255.255
192.168.0.0 ~ 192.168.255.255

STEP 2:
Once the Administrator PC has an IP address on the same network as the
Multi-Homing Dual WAN Firewall Router, open up an Internet web browser
and type in http://92.168.1.1 in the address bar.
A pop-up screen will appear and prompt for a username and password. A
username and password is required in order connect to the Multi-Homing.
Enter the default login username and password of Administrator (see below).
Username:
admin
Password:
admin
Click OK

STEP 3:
After entering the username and password, the Multi-Homing Dual WAN
Firewall Router WEBUI screen will display.
Select the Interface tab on the left menu and a sub-function list will be
displayed.
Click on LAN from the sub-function list, and enter proper Layer 3 network
setup information. (for example)

STEP 4:
Click on the Policy tab from the main function menu, and then click on
Outgoing from the sub-function list.
Click on New Entry button.
When the New Entry option appears, then enter the following configuration:
Source Address – select “Inside_Any”
Destination Address – select “Outside_Any”
Service - select “ANY”
Action - select
“Permit”
Click on OK to apply the changes.
- 9-
STEP 5:
The configuration is successful if you see the screen below. Make sure that
all the computers that are connected to the LAN port have their Default
Gateway IP Address set to the Multi-Homing’s LAN IP Address (i.e.
192.168.1.1). At this point, all the computers on the LAN network should gain
access to Internet immediately. If a Multi-Homing filter function is required,
please refer to the Policy section.
