DTIM Interval
This value determines the interval of the Delivery Traffic Indication
Message (DTIM). A DTIM field is a countdown field informing clients of
the next window for listening to broadcast and multicast messages.
When the Router has buffered broadcast or multicast messages for
associated clients, it sends the next DTIM with a DTIM Interval value.
-66-
User’s Manual of WNRT-617G
You can specify the value between 1-255 Beacon Intervals. The
default value is 1, which indicates the DTIM Interval is the same as

Appendix D: Glossary

802.11n - 802.11n builds upon previous 802.11 standards by adding MIMO (multiple-input
multiple-output). MIMO uses multiple transmitter and receiver antennas to allow for increased
data throughput via spatial multiplexing and increased range by exploiting the spatial
diversity, perhaps through coding schemes like Alamouti coding. The Enhanced Wireless
Consortium (EWC) [3] was formed to help accelerate the IEEE 802.11n development
process and promote a technology specification for interoperability of next-generation
wireless local area networking (WLAN) products.

802.11b - The 802.11b standard specifies a wireless networking at 11 Mbps using
direct-sequence spread-spectrum (DSSS) technology and operating in the unlicensed radio
spectrum at 2.4GHz, and WEP encryption for security. 802.11b networks are also referred to
as Wi-Fi networks.

802.11g - specification for wireless networking at 54 Mbps using direct-sequence
spread-spectrum (DSSS) technology, using OFDM modulation and operating in the
unlicensed radio spectrum at 2.4GHz, and backward compatibility with IEEE 802.11b devices,
and WEP encryption for security.

DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) - The capability of assigning a fixed host and
domain name to a dynamic Internet IP Address.

DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) - A protocol that automatically configure the
TCP/IP parameters for the all the PC(s) that are connected to a DHCP server.

DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) - A Demilitarized Zone allows one local host to be exposed to the
Internet for a special-purpose service such as Internet gaming or videoconferencing.

DNS (Domain Name System) - An Internet Service that translates the names of websites into
IP addresses.

Domain Name - A descriptive name for an address or group of addresses on the Internet.

