ADSL2+ (802.11g) (VPN) Firewall Router
Chapter 1: Introduction
Introduction to your Router
Welcome to the ADSL2+ (802.11g) (VPN) Firewall Router. The router is an “all-in-one” ADSL router,
combining an ADSL modem, ADSL router and Ethernet network switch functionalities, providing
everything you need to get the machines on your network connected to the Internet over your ADSL
broadband connection. With features such as an ADSL Quick-Start wizard and DHCP Server, you can be
online in no time at all and with a minimum of fuss and configuration, catering for first-time users to the
guru requiring advanced features and control over their Internet connection and network.
Features
Express Internet Access
The router complies with ADSL worldwide standards. It supports downstream rate up to 12/24 Mbps
with ADSL2/2+, 8Mbps with ADSL. Users enjoy not only high-speed ADSL services but also
broadband multimedia applications such as interactive gaming, video streaming and real-time
audio much easier and faster than ever. It is compliant with Multi-Mode standard (ANSI T1.413,
Issue 2; G.dmt (ITU G.992.1); G.lite (ITU G.992.2); G.hs (ITU G994.1); G.dmt.bis (ITU G.992.3);
G.dmt.bis.plus (ITU G.992.5)).
Virtual Private Network (VPN) (VPN model only)
It allows user to make a tunnel with a remote site directly to secure the data transmission among
the connection. User can use embedded PPTP and L2TP client/server, IKE and IPSec which are
supported by this router to make a VPN connection or users can run the PPTP client in PC and the
router already provides IPSec and PPTP pass through function to establish a VPN connection if the
user likes to run the PPTP client in his local computer.
EWAN
Besides using ADSL to get connected to the Internet, the router offers its Ethernet port 1 as a WAN
port to be used to connect to Cable Modems and fiber optic lines. This alternative, yet faster
method to connect to the internet will provide users more flexibility to get online.
Dual WAN
Dual WAN is a new way of getting connected to the internet which is to use two of the ADSL/EWAN
to deal with the unexpected case. That is a way of improving greatly the robustness.
802.11g Wireless AP with WPA Support (Wireless Router only)
With integrated 802.11g Wireless Access Point in the router, the device offers a quick and easy
access among wired network, wireless network and broadband connection (ADSL) with single
device simplicity, and as a result, mobility to the users. In addition to 54 Mbps 802.11g data rate, it
also interoperates backward with existing 802.11b equipment. The Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA1
and WPA2) and Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) supported features enhance the security level of
data protection and access control via Wireless LAN.
Fast Ethernet Switch
A 4-port 10/100Mbps fast Ethernet switch is built in with automatic switching between MDI and
MDI-X for 10Base-T and 100Base-TX ports. An Ethernet straight or crossover cable can be used
directly for auto detection.
Multi-Protocol to Establish a Connection
It supports PPPoA (RFC 2364 - PPP over ATM Adaptation Layer 5), RFC 1483 encapsulation over
ATM (bridged or routed), PPP over Ethernet (RFC 2516), and IPoA (RFC1577) to establish a
Chapter 1: Introduction

ADSL2+ (802.11g) (VPN) Firewall Router
connection with the ISP. The product also supports VC-based and LLC-based multiplexing.
Quick Installation Wizard
It supports a WEB GUI page to install this device quickly. With this wizard, end users can enter the
information easily which they get from their ISP, then surf the Internet immediately.
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) and UPnP NAT Traversal
This protocol is used to enable simple and robust connectivity among stand-alone devices and PCs
from many different vendors. It makes network simple and affordable for users. UPnP architecture
leverages TCP/IP and the Web to enable seamless proximity networking in addition to control and
data transfer among networked devices. With this feature enabled, users can now connect to Net
meeting or MSN Messenger seamlessly.
Network Address Translation (NAT)
Allows multi-users to access outside resources such as the Internet simultaneously with one IP
address/one Internet access account. Many application layer gateway (ALG) are supported such as
web browser, ICQ, FTP, Telnet, E-mail, News, Net2phone, Ping, NetMeeting, IP phone and others.
SOHO Firewall Security with DoS and SPI
Along with the built-in NAT natural firewall feature, the router also provides advanced hacker
pattern-filtering protection. It can automatically detect and block Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.
The router is built with Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) to determine if a data packet is allowed
through the firewall to the private LAN.
Domain Name System (DNS) Relay
It provides an easy way to map the domain name (a friendly name for users such as
www.yahoo.com) and IP address. When a local machine sets its DNS server with this router’s IP
address, every DNS conversion request packet from the PC to this router will be forwarded to the
real DNS in the outside network.
Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS)
The Dynamic DNS service allows you to alias a dynamic IP address to a static hostname. This
dynamic IP address is the WAN IP address. For example, to use the service, you must first apply for
an account from a DDNS service like http://www.dyndns.org/. More than 5 DDNS servers are
supported.
Quality of Service (QoS)
QoS gives you full control over which types of outgoing data traffic should be given priority by the
router, ensuring important data like gaming packets, customer information, or management
information move through the router ay lightning speed, even under heavy load. The QoS features
are configurable by source IP address, destination IP address, protocol, and port. You can throttle
the speed at which different types of outgoing data pass through the router, to ensure P2P users
don’t saturate upload bandwidth, or office browsing doesn’t bring client web serving to a halt. In
addition, or alternatively, you can simply change the priority of different types of upload data and let
the router sort out the actual speeds.
Virtual Server (“port forwarding”)
Users can specify some services to be visible from outside users. The router can detect incoming
service requests and forward either a single port or a range of ports to the specific local computer to
handle it. For example, a user can assign a PC in the LAN acting as a WEB server inside and
expose it to the outside network. Outside users can browse inside web servers directly while it is
protected by NAT. A DMZ host setting is also provided to a local computer exposed to the outside
network, Internet.
Rich Packet Filtering
Chapter 1: Introduction
2
ADSL2+ (802.11g) (VPN) Firewall Router
Not only filters the packet based on IP address, but also based on Port numbers. It will filter packets
from and to the Internet, and also provides a higher level of security control.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Client and Server
In the WAN site, the DHCP client can get an IP address from the Internet Service Provider (ISP)
automatically. In the LAN site, the DHCP server can allocate a range of client IP addresses and
distribute them including IP address, subnet mask as well as DNS IP address to local computers. It
provides an easy way to manage the local IP network.
Static and RIP1/2 Routing
It has routing capability and supports easy static routing table or RIP1/2 routing protocol.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
It is an easy way to remotely manage the router via SNMP.
Web based GUI
It supports web based GUI for configuration and management. It is user-friendly and comes with
on-line help. It also supports remote management capability for remote users to configure and
manage this product.
Firmware Upgradeable
Device can be upgraded to the latest firmware through the WEB based GUI.
Rich Management Interfaces
It supports flexible management interfaces with local console port, LAN port, and WAN port. Users
can use terminal applications through the console port to configure and manage the device, or
Telnet, WEB GUI, and SNMP through LAN or WAN ports to configure and manage the device.

Cabling
One of the most common causes of problems is the bad cabling or ADSL line(s). Make sure that all
connected devices are turned on. On the front of the product is a bank of LEDs. Verify that the LAN Link
and ADSL line LEDs are lit. If they are not, verify that you are using the proper cables.
Ensure that all other devices connected to the same telephone line as your router (e.g. telephones, fax
machines, analogue modems) have a line filter connected between them and the wall socket (unless you
are using a Central Splitter or Central Filter installed by a qualified and licensed electrician), and ensure
that all line filters are correctly installed and the right way around. Missing line filters or line filters installed
the wrong way around can cause problems with your ADSL connection, including causing frequent
disconnections.

ADSL2+ (802.11g) (VPN) Firewall Router
Chapter 3: Basic Installation
The router can be configured with your web browser. A web browser is included as a standard application
in the following operating systems: Linux, Mac OS, Windows 98/NT/2000/XP/7/Vista/Me, etc. The product
provides an easy and user-friendly interface for configuration.
Please check your PC’s network components. The TCP/IP protocol stack and Ethernet network adapter
must be installed. If not, please refer to your Windows-related or other operating system manuals.
There are ways to connect with the router, either through an external repeater hub to the router or directly
connecting with PCs. However, to be sure PCs have an Ethernet interface installed properly prior to
connecting to the router device. You ought to configure your PCs to obtain an IP address through a
DHCP server or a fixed IP address that must be in the same subnet as the router. The default IP address
of the router is 192.168.1.254 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0 (i.e. any attached PC must be in the
same subnet, and have an IP address in the range of 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.253). The best and
easiest way is to configure the PC to get an IP address automatically from the router using DHCP. If you
encounter any problem accessing the router’s web interface it may also be advisable to uninstall any
kind of software firewall on your PCs, as they can cause problems accessing the 192.168.1.254 IP
address of the router. Users should make their own decisions on how to best protect their network.
Please follow the steps below for your PC’s network environment installation.
Any TCP/IP capable workstation can be used to communicate with
or through the router. To configure other types of workstations,
please consult the manufacturer’s documentation.

Port Setting
This section allows you to configure the settings for the router’s Ethernet ports to solve some of the
compatibility problems that may be encountered while connecting to the Internet, as well allowing users to
tweak the performance of their network.
Port # Connection Type: There are Six options to choose from: Auto, disable, 10M half-duplex, 10M
full-duplex, 100M half-duplex, 100M full-duplex and Disable. Sometimes, there are Ethernet compatibility
problems with legacy Ethernet devices, and you can configure different types to solve compatibility issues.
The default is Auto, which users should keep unless there are specific problems with PCs not being able
to access your LAN.
IPv4 TOS priority Control (Advanced users): TOS, Type of Services, is the 2nd octet of an IP packet.
Bits 6-7 of this octet are reserved and bit 0-5 are used to specify the priority of the packet.
This feature uses bits 0-5 to classify the packet’s priority. If the packet is high priority, it will flow first and
will not be constrained by the Rate Limit. Therefore, when this feature is enabled, the router’s Ethernet
switch will check the 2nd octet of each IP packet. If the value in the TOS field matches the checked values
in the table (0 to 63), this packet will be treated as high priority.
DHCP Server
You can disable or enable the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server or enable the router’s
DHCP relay functions. The DHCP protocol allows your router to dynamically assign IP addresses to PCs
on your network if they are configured to obtain IP addresses automatically.
Chapter 4: Configuration
48
ADSL2+ (802.11g) (VPN) Firewall Router
To disable the router’s DHCP Server, check Disabled and click Next, then click Apply. When the DHCP
Server is disabled you will need to manually assign a fixed IP address to each PCs on your network, and
set the default gateway for each PCs to the IP address of the router (by default this is 192.168.1.254).
To configure the router’s DHCP Server, check DHCP Server and click Next. You can then configure
parameters of the DHCP Server including the IP pool (starting IP address and ending IP address to be
allocated to PCs on your network), lease time for each assigned IP address (the period of time the IP
address assigned will be valid), DNS IP address and the gateway IP address. These details are sent to
the DHCP client (i.e. your PC) when it requests an IP address from the DHCP server. Click Apply to
enable this function. If you check “Use Router as a DNS Server”, the ADSL Router will perform the
domain name lookup, find the IP address from the outside network automatically and forward it back to
the requesting PC in the LAN (your Local Area Network).
If you check DHCP Relay Agent and click Next, then you will have to enter the IP address of the DHCP
server which will assign an IP address back to the DHCP client in the LAN. Use this function only if
advised to do so by your network administrator or ISP.

determined by Probe Cycle duration multiplied by connection Decision amount (e.g. From the image
above it will be 60 seconds multiplied by 5 consecutive fails).
Failback Probe Cycle: Set the time duration for the Failback Probe Cycle to determine when the router
will switch back to the main connection (main port) from the backup connection (backup port) once the
main connection is communicating again.
Note: The time set is for each probe cycle, but the decision to change to the backup port is
determined by Probe Cycle duration multiplied by Connection Decision amount (e.g. From the image
above it will be 60 seconds multiplied by 5 consecutive fails).
Detect Rule:
Rule 1. ADSL Down
Rule 2. Ping Fail
No Ping: It will not send any ping packet to determine the connection. It means to disable the ping

Time Zone
The router does not have a real time clock on board; instead, it uses the Simple Network Time Protocol
(SNTP) to get the current time from an SNTP server outside your network. Choose your local time zone,
click Enable and click the Apply button. After a successful connection to the Internet, the router will
retrieve the correct local time from the SNTP server you have specified. If you prefer to specify an SNTP
server other than those in the list, simply enter its IP address as shown above. Your ISP may provide an
SNTP server for you to use.
Daylight Saving is also known as Summer Time Period. Many places in the world adapt it during
summer time to move one hour of daylight from morning to the evening in local standard time. Check
Automatic box to auto set your local time.
Resync Period (in minutes) is the periodic interval the router will wait before it re-synchronizes the
router’s time with that of the specified SNTP server. In order to avoid unnecessarily increasing the load
on your specified SNTP server you should keep the poll interval as high as possible – at the absolute
minimum every few hours or even days.

Firewall and Access Control
Your router includes a full SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) firewall for controlling Internet access from
your LAN, as well as helping to prevent attacks from hackers. Besides, when using NAT, the router acts
as a “natural” Internet firewall, as all PCs on your LAN will use private IP addresses that cannot be
directly accessed from the Internet.
Firewall: Prevents access from outside your network. The router provides three levels of security
support:
NAT natural firewall: This masks LAN users’ IP addresses which is invisible to outside users on the
Internet, making it much more difficult for a hacker to target a machine on your network. This natural
firewall is on when NAT function is enabled.
When using Virtual Servers your PCs will be exposed to the degree
specified in your Virtual Server settings provided the ports specified are
opened in your firewall packet filter settings.
Firewall Security and Policy (General Settings): Inbound direction of Packet Filter rules to prevent
unauthorized computers or applications accessing your local network from the Internet.
Intrusion Detection: Enable Intrusion Detection to detect, prevent and log malicious attacks.
Access Control: Prevents access from PCs on your local network:
Firewall Security and Policy (General Settings): Outbound direction of Packet Filter rules to prevent
unauthorized computers or applications accessing the Internet.
URL Filter: To block PCs on your local network from unwanted websites.

General Settings
You can choose not to enable Firewall and still able to access to URL Filter, Intrusion Detection and
IM/P2P Blocking or enable the Firewall using preset filter rules and modify the port filter rules as required.
The Packet Filter is used to filter packets based-on Applications (Port) or IP addresses.
There are four options when you enable the Firewall, they are:
All blocked/User-defined: no pre-defined port or address filter rules by default, meaning that
all inbound (Internet to LAN) and outbound (LAN to Internet) packets will be blocked. Users have to
add their own filter rules for further access to the Internet.
High/Medium/Low security level: the predefined port filter rules for High, Medium and Low
security are displayed in Port Filters of Packet Filter.
Select either High, Medium or Low security level to enable the Firewall. The only difference between
these three security levels is the preset port filter rules in the Packet Filter. Firewall functionality is the
same for all levels; it is only the list of preset port filters that changes between each setting. For more
detailed on level of preset port filter information, refer to Table 1: Predefined Port Filter.
If you choose of the preset security levels and add custom filters, this level of filter rules will be saved
even and do not need to re-configure the rules again if you disable or switch to other firewall level.
The “Block WAN Request” is a stand-alone function and not relate to whether security enable or disable.
Mostly it is for preventing any scan tools from WAN site by hacker.

Any remote user who is attempting to perform this action may result in
blocking all the accesses to configure and manage of the device from the

Intrusion Detection
The router’s Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is used to detect hacker attacks and intrusion attempts
from the Internet. If the IDS function of the firewall is enabled, inbound packets are filtered and blocked
depending on whether they are detected as possible hacker attacks, intrusion attempts or other
connections that the router determines to be suspicious.
Blacklist: If the router detects a possible attack, the source IP or destination IP address will be added to
the Blacklist. Any further attempts using this IP address will be blocked for the time period specified as the
Block Duration. The default setting for this function is false (disabled). Some attack types are denied
immediately without using the Blacklist function, such as Land attack and Echo/CharGen scan.
Intrusion Detection: If enabled, IDS will block Smurf attack attempts. Default is false.
Block Duration:
Victim Protection Block Duration: This is the duration for blocking Smurf attacks. Default
value is 600 seconds.
Scan Attack Block Duration: This is the duration for blocking hosts that attempt a possible
Scan attack. Scan attack types include X’mas scan, IMAP SYN/FIN scan and similar attempts.

URL Filter
URL (Uniform Resource Locator – e.g. an address in the form of http://www.abcde.com or
http://www.example.com) filter rules allow you to prevent users on your network from accessing particular
websites by their URL. There are no pre-defined URL filter rules; you can add filter rules to meet your
requirements.
Enable/Disable: To enable or disable URL Filter feature.
Block Mode: It can support up to 4 timeslots.
Disabled: No action will be performed by the Block Mode.
Always On: Action is enabled. URL filter rules will be monitoring and checking all hours of the
day.
TimeSlot1 ~ TimeSlot16: It is self-defined time period. You may specify the time period to
check the URL filter rules, i.e. during working hours. For setup and detail, refer to Time
Schedule section.
Keywords Filtering: Allows blocking by specific keywords within a particular URL rather than having to
specify a complete URL (e.g. to block any image called “advertisement.gif”). When enabled, your
specified keywords list will be checked to see if any keywords are present in URLs accessed to determine
if the connection attempt should be blocked. Please note that the URL filter blocks web browser (HTTP)
connection attempts using port 80 only.
For example, if the URL is http://www.abc.com/abcde.html, it will be dropped as the keyword “abcde”
occurs in the URL.

ADSL2+ (802.11g) (VPN) Firewall Router
Domains Filtering: This function checks the whole URL not the IP address, in URLs accessed against
your list of domains to block or allow. If it is matched, the URL request will be sent (Trusted) or dropped
(Forbidden). For this function to be activated, both check-boxes must be checked. Here is the checking
procedure:
1. Check the domain in the URL to determine if it is in the trusted list. If yes, the connection attempt
is sent to the remote web server.
2. If not, check if it is listed in the forbidden list. If yes, then the connection attempt will be dropped.
3. If the packet does not match either of the above two items, it is sent to the remote web server.
4. Please be note that the completed URL, “www” + domain name shall be specified. For example
to block traffic to www.google.com.au, enter “www.google” or “www.google.com”
In the example below, the URL request for www.abc.com will be sent to the remote web server because it
is listed in the trusted list, whilst the URL request for www.google or www.google.com will be dropped,
because www.google is in the forbidden list.
Example: Andy wishes to disable all WEB traffic except for ones listed in the trusted domain, which
would prevent Bobby from accessing other web sites. Andy selects both functions in the Domain Filtering
and thinks that it will stop Bobby. But Bobby knows this function, Domain Filtering, ONLY disables all
WEB traffic except for Trusted Domain, BUT not its IP address. If this is the situation, Block surfing by
IP address function can be handy and helpful to Andy. Now, Andy can prevent Bobby from accessing
other sites.
Restrict URL Features: This function enhances the restriction to your URL rules.
Block Java Applet: This function can block Web content that includes the Java Applet. It is to
prevent someone who wants to damage your system via standard HTTP protocol.
Block surfing by IP address: Preventing someone who uses the IP address as URL for
skipping Domains Filtering function. Activates only and if Domain Filtering enabled.

Virtual Server (known as Port Forwarding)
In TCP/IP and UDP networks a port is a 16-bit number used to identify which application program (usually
a server) incoming connections should be delivered to. Some ports have numbers that are pre-assigned
to them by the IANA (the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority), and these are referred to as “well-known
ports”. Servers follow the well-known port assignments so clients can locate them.
If you wish to run a server on your network that can be accessed from the WAN (i.e. from other machines
on the Internet that are outside your local network), or any application that can accept incoming
connections (e.g. Peer-to-peer/P2P software such as instant messaging applications and P2P file-sharing
applications) and are using NAT (Network Address Translation), then you will usually need to configure
your router to forward these incoming connection attempts using specific ports to the PC on your network
running the application. You will also need to use port forwarding if you want to host an online game
server.
The reason for this is that when using NAT, your publicly accessible IP address will be used by and point
to your router, which then needs to deliver all traffic to the private IP addresses used by your PCs. Please
see the WAN configuration section of this manual for more information on NAT.
The device can be configured as a virtual server so that remote users accessing services such as Web or
FTP services via the public (WAN) IP address can be automatically redirected to local servers in the LAN
network. Depending on the requested service (TCP/UDP port number), the device redirects the external
service request to the appropriate server within the LAN network

98
ADSL2+ (802.11g) (VPN) Firewall Router
Add Virtual Server
Because NAT can act as a “natural” Internet firewall, your router protects your network from being
accessed by outside users when using NAT, as all incoming connection attempts will point to your router
unless you specifically create Virtual Server entries to forward those ports to a PC on your network.
When your router needs to allow outside users to access internal servers, e.g. a web server, FTP server,
Email server or game server, the router can act as a “virtual server”. You can set up a local server with a
specific port number for the service to use, e.g. web/HTTP (port 80), FTP (port 21), Telnet (port 23),
SMTP (port 25), or POP3 (port 110), When an incoming access request to the router for a specified port is
received, it will be forwarded to the corresponding internal server.

Using port forwarding does have security implications, as outside users will be
able to connect to PCs on your network. For this reason you are advised to use
specific Virtual Server entries just for the ports your application requires,
instead of using DMZ. As doing so will result in all connections from the WAN
attempt to access to your public IP of the DMZ PC specified.
If you have disabled the NAT option in the WAN-ISP section, the Virtual Server
function will hence be invalid.
Attention
If the DHCP server option is enabled, you have to be very careful in assigning
the IP addresses of the virtual servers in order to avoid conflicts. The easiest
way of configuring Virtual Servers is to manually assign static IP address to
each virtual server PC, with an address that does not fall into the range of IP
addresses that are to be issued by the DHCP server. You can configure the
virtual server IP address manually, but it must still be in the same subnet as the

ADSL2+ (802.11g) (VPN) Firewall Router
Dynamic DNS
The Dynamic DNS function allows you to alias a dynamic IP address to a static hostname, allowing users
whose ISP does not assign them a static IP address to use a domain name. This is especially useful for
hosting servers via your ADSL connection, so that anyone wishing to connect to you may use your
domain name, rather than having to use your dynamic IP address, which changes from time to time. This
dynamic IP address is the WAN IP address of the router, which is assigned to you by your ISP.
You will first need to register and establish an account with the Dynamic DNS provider using their website,
for example http://www.dyndns.org/
There are more than 5 DDNS services supported.
Dynamic DNS:
Disable: Check to disable the Dynamic DNS function.
Enable: Check to enable the Dynamic DNS function. The following fields will be activated and
required:
Dynamic DNS Server: Select the DDNS service you have established an account with.
Domain Name, Username and Password: Enter your registered domain name and your username and
password for this service.
Period: Set the time period between updates, for the Router to exchange information with the DDNS
server. In addition to updating periodically as per your settings, the router will perform an update when
your dynamic IP address changes.

Check Email
This function allows you to have the router check your POP3 mailbox for new Email messages. The Mail
LED on your router will light when it detects new messages waiting for download. You may also view the
status of this function using the Status – Email Checking section of the web interface, which also provides
details on the number of new messages waiting. See the Status section of this manual for more
information.
Check Email:
Disable: Check to disable the router’s Email checking function.
Enable: Check to enable the routers Email checking function. The following fields will be
activated and required:
Account Name: Enter the name (login) of the POP3 account you wish to check. Normally, it is the text in
your email address before the "@" symbol. If you have trouble with it, please contact your ISP.
Password: Enter the account’s password.
POP3 Mail Server: Enter your (POP) mail server name. You Internet Service Provider (ISP) or network
administrator will be able to supply you with this.
Period: Enter the value in minutes between periodic mail checks.
Dial-out for checking emails: When the function is enabled, your ADSL router will connect to your ISP
automatically to check emails if your Internet connection dropped. Please be careful when using this
feature if your ADSL service is charged by time online.

Device Management
The Device Management advanced configuration settings allow you to control your router’s security
options and device monitoring features.
Device Host Name
Host Name: Give a name for it.
(The Host Name cannot be used with one word only. There are two words should be connected with a '.'
at least.
Example:
Host Name: homegateway ==> Incorrect
Host Name: home.gateway or my.home.gateway ==> Correct)
Embedded Web Server ( 2 Management IP Accounts)
HTTP Port: This is the port number the router’s embedded web server (for web-based configuration) will
use. The default value is the standard HTTP port, 80. Users may specify an alternative if, for example,
they are running a web server on a PC within their LAN.
Management IP Address: You may specify an IP address allowed to logon and access the router’s web
server. Setting the IP address to 0.0.0.0 will disable IP address restrictions, allowing users to login from
any IP address.
Chapter 4: Configuration
111
ADSL2+ (802.11g) (VPN) Firewall Router
Expire to auto-logout: Specify a time frame for the system to auto-logout the user’s configuration
session.
For Example: User A changes HTTP port number to 100, specifies their own IP address of 192.168.1.55,
and sets the logout time to be 100 seconds. The router will only allow User A access from the IP
address 192.168.1.55 to logon to the Web GUI by typing: http://192.168.1.254:100 in their web browser.
After 100 seconds, the device will automatically logout User A.
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)
UPnP offers peer-to-peer network connectivity for PCs and other network devices, along with control and
data transfer between devices. UPnP offers many advantages for users running NAT routers through
UPnP NAT Traversal, and on supported systems makes tasks such as port forwarding much easier by
letting the application control the required settings, removing the need for the user to control advanced
configuration of their device.
Both the user’s Operating System and the relevant application must support UPnP in addition to the
router. Windows XP and Windows Me natively support UPnP (when the component is installed), and
Windows 98 users may install the Internet Connection Sharing client from Windows XP in order to
support UPnP. Windows 2000 does not support UPnP.
Disable: Check to disable the router’s UPnP functionality.
Enable: Check to enable the router’s UPnP functionality.
UPnP Port: Its default setting is 2800. It is highly recommended for users to use this port value. If this
value conflicts with other ports already being used you may wish to change the port.
SNMP Access Control (Software on a PC within the LAN is required in order to utilize this function) –
Simple Network Management Protocol.
Disable: Check to disable the router’s SNMP functionality.
Enable: Check to enable the router’s SNMP functionality.
SNMP V1 and V2:
Read Community: Specify a name to be identified as the Read Community, and an IP address. This
community string will be checked against the string entered in the configuration file. Once the string name
is matched, user obtains this IP address will be able to view the data.
Write Community: Specify a name to be identified as the Write Community, and an IP address. This
community string will be checked against the string entered in the configuration file. Once the string name
is matched, users from this IP address will be able to view and modify the data.
Trap Community: Specify a name to be identified as the Trap Community, and an IP address. This
community string will be checked against the string entered in the configuration file. Once the string name
is matched, users from this IP address will be sent SNMP Traps.
SNMP V3:
Specify a name and password for authentication. And define the access right from identified IP address.
Once the authentication has succeeded, users from this IP address will be able to view and modify the
data.
SNMP Version: SNMPv2c and SNMPv3
SNMPv2c is the combination of the enhanced protocol features of SNMPv2 without the SNMPv2 security.
The "c" comes from the fact that SNMPv2c uses the SNMPv1 community string paradigm for "security",
but is widely accepted as the SNMPv2 standard.
SNMPv3 is a strong authentication mechanism, authorization with fine granularity for remote monitoring.

To exit the router’s web interface, choose Logout. Please ensure that you have saved the configuration
settings before you logout.
Be aware that the router is restricted to only one PC accessing the configuration web pages at a time.
Once a PC has logged into the web interface, other PCs cannot get access until the current PC has
logged out of the web interface. If the previous PC forgets to logout, the second PC can access the page
after a user-defined period, by default 3 minutes. You can modify this value using the Advanced –
Device Management section of the web interface. Please see the Advanced section of this manual for
