Position Your Wireless Router
The wireless modem router lets you access your network from virtually anywhere within the
operating range of your wireless network. However, the operating distance or range of your
wireless connection can vary significantly depending on the physical placement of your
router. For example, the thickness and number of walls the wireless signal passes through
can limit the range. For best results, place your router:
•
Near the center of the area where your computers and other devices operate, and
preferably within line of sight to your wireless devices.
•
So it is accessible to an AC power outlet and near Ethernet cables for wired computers.
•
In an elevated location such as a high shelf, keeping the number of walls and ceilings
between the wireless modem router and your other devices to a minimum.
•
Away from electrical devices that are potential sources of interference, such as ceiling
fans, home security systems, microwaves, computers, or the base of a cordless phone or
2.4 GHz cordless phone.
•
Away from any large metal surfaces, such as a solid metal door or aluminum studs. Large
expanses of other materials such as glass, insulated walls, fish tanks, mirrors, brick, and
concrete can also affect your wireless signal.
Note: The DGND3700 should be put in a vertical position only.
Hardware Setup
16
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
Also be aware that when you use multiple access points, it is better if adjacent access points
use different radio frequency channels to reduce interference. The recommended channel
spacing between adjacent access points is five channels (for example, use Channels 1 and
6, or 6 and 11).
ADSL Microfilters
If this is the first time you have cabled a wireless router between an ADSL phone line and
your computer or laptop, you might not be familiar with ADSL microfilters. If you are, you can
skip this section and proceed to Cable Your N600 Wireless Modem Router on page 19.
An ADSL microfilter is a small in-line device that filters ADSL interference out of standard
phone equipment that shares the same line with your ADSL service. Every telephone device
that connects to a telephone line that provides ADSL service needs an ADSL microfilter to
filter out the ADSL interference. Example devices are telephones, fax machines, answering
machines, and caller ID displays. Note that not every phone line in your home necessarily
carries ADSL service. That depends on the ADSL service setup in your home.
Note: Often the ADSL microfilter is included in the box with the wireless
modem router. If you purchased the wireless modem router in a
country where a microfilter is not included, you have to acquire the
ADSL microfilter separately.
One-Line ADSL Microfilter (Not Included)
Plug the ADSL microfilter into the wall outlet and plug your phone equipment into the jack
labeled Phone. The wireless modem router plugs directly into a separate ADSL line. Plugging
the wireless modem router into the phone jack blocks the Internet connection. If you do not
have a separate ADSL line for the router, the best thing to do is to use an ADSL microfilter
with a built-in splitter.
Plugs into ADSL line
Figure 5. One-line ADSL microfilter
Second best when you do not have a separate ADSL line for the router is to get a separate
splitter. To use a one-line filter with a separate splitter, insert the splitter into the phone outlet,
connect the one-line filter to the splitter, and connect the phone to the filter.
Hardware Setup
17
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
Two-Line ADSL Microfilter (Included)
Use an ADSL microfilter with a built-in splitter when there is a single wall outlet that provides
connectivity for both the wireless modem router and your telephone equipment. Plug the
ADSL microfilter into the wall outlet, plug your phone equipment into the jack labeled Phone,
and plug the wireless modem router into the jack labeled ADSL.
Plugs into the ADSL line
Figure 6. Two-line ADSL microfilter with built-in splitter

Allow guest to access My Local Network. If this check box is selected, any user who
connects to this SSID has access to your local network, not just Internet access.
Enable Wireless Isolation. If this check box is selected, then wireless clients (computers
or wireless devices) that join the network can use the Internet, but cannot access each
other or access Ethernet devices on the network.
3. Give the guest network a name.
The guest network name is case-sensitive and can be up to 32 characters. You then
manually configure the wireless devices in your network to use the guest network name
in addition to the main nonguest SSID.
4. Select a security option from the list. The security options are described in Guest Network
Wireless Security Options on page 39.
5. Click Apply to save your selections.
Guest Network Wireless Security Options
A security option is the type of security protocol applied to your wireless network. The
security protocol in force encrypts data transmissions and ensures that only trusted devices
receive authorization to connect to your network.
This section presents an overview of the security options and provides guidance on when to
use which option. Note that it is also possible to set up a guest network without wireless
security. NETGEAR does not recommend this.
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) encryption is built into all hardware that has the Wi-Fi-certified
seal. This seal means the product is authorized by the Wi-Fi Alliance (http://www.wi-fi.org/)
because it complies with the worldwide single standard for high-speed wireless local area
networking.
WPA-PSK uses a passphrase to perform authentication and generate the initial data
encryption keys. Then it dynamically varies the encryption key. WPA-PSK uses Temporal Key
Integrity Protocol (TKIP) data encryption, implements most of the IEEE 802.11i standard, and
is designed to work with all wireless network interface cards, but not all wireless access
points. It is superseded by WPA2-PSK.
WPA2-PSK is stronger than WPA. It is advertised to be indecipherable due to the greater
degree of randomness in encryption keys that it generates. WPA2-PSK gets higher speed
Genie Basic Settings
39
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
because it is usually implemented through hardware, while WPA-PSK is usually implemented
through software. WPA2-PSK uses a passphrase to authenticate and generate the initial data
encryption keys. Then it dynamically varies the encryption key.
WPS-PSK + WPA2-PSK Mixed Mode can provide broader support for all wireless clients.
WPA2-PSK clients get higher speed and security, and WPA-PSK clients get decent speed
and security. The product documentation for your wireless adapter and WPA client software
should have instructions about configuring their WPA settings.

WAN Setup
The WAN Setup screen lets you configure a DMZ (demilitarized zone) server, change the
maximum transmit unit (MTU) size, and enable the wireless modem router to respond to a
ping on the WAN (Internet) port. Select Advanced > Setup > WAN Setup to view the
following screen:
•
Disable Port Scan and DoS Protection. DoS protection protects your LAN against
denial of service attacks such as Syn flood, Smurf Attack, Ping of Death, Teardrop Attack,
UDP Flood, ARP Attack, Spoofing ICMP, Null Scan, and many others. This should be
disabled only in special circumstances.
•
Default DMZ Server. This feature is sometimes helpful when you are playing online
games and/or videoconferencing. Be careful when using this feature because it makes
the firewall security less effective. See the following section, Default DMZ Server, for
more details.
•
Respond to Ping on Internet Port. If you want the wireless modem router to respond to
a ping from the Internet, select this check box. Use this only as a diagnostic tool because
it allows your wireless modem router to be discovered. Do not select this check box
unless you have a specific reason.
•
MTU Size (in bytes). The normal MTU (maximum transmit unit) value for most Ethernet
networks is 1500 bytes, or 1492 bytes for PPPoE connections. For some ISPs you might
need to reduce the MTU. This is rarely required, and should not be done unless you are
sure it is necessary for your ISP connection. See Change the MTU Size on page 48.
•
NAT Filtering. Network Address Translation (NAT) determines how the wireless modem
router processes inbound traffic. Secured NAT provides a secured firewall to protect the
computers on the LAN from attacks from the Internet, but might prevent some Internet
games, point-to-point applications, or multimedia applications from functioning. Open
NAT provides a much less secured firewall, but allows almost all Internet applications to
function.

-
Disable SIP ALG. Some VoIP applications do not work well with the SIP ALG.
Enabling this option to turn off the SIP ALG might help your VoIP devices to
create/accept a call through the router.
-
Disable IGMP Proxying. The Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) is an
Internet protocol that provides a way for an Internet computer to report its multicast
group membership to adjacent routers. The hosts interact with the system through the
exchange of IGMP messages. When you configure IGMP proxy, the router interacts
with other routers through the exchange of IGMP messages. However, when acting
as the proxy, the router performs the host portion of the IGMP task as follows:
•
When queried, the router sends membership reports to the group.
•
When one of the hosts joins a multicast address group that none of other hosts
belongs to, the router sends unsolicited membership reports to that group.
•
When the last host in a particular multicast group leaves the group, the router
sends a leave group membership report to that router's group.
Default DMZ Server
The default DMZ server feature is helpful when you are using some online games and
videoconferencing applications that are incompatible with Network Address Translation
(NAT). The wireless modem router is programmed to recognize some of these applications
and to work correctly with them, but there are other applications that might not function well.
In some cases, one local computer can run the application correctly if that computer’s IP
address is entered as the default DMZ server.
WARNING!
DMZ servers pose a security risk. A computer designated as the
default DMZ server loses much of the protection of the firewall
and is exposed to exploits from the Internet. If compromised, the
DMZ server computer can be used to attack other computers on
your network.
Incoming traffic from the Internet is usually discarded by the wireless modem router unless
the traffic is a response to one of your local computers or a service that you have configured
in the Port Forwarding/Port Triggering screen. Instead of discarding this traffic, you can have
it forwarded to one computer on your network. This computer is called the default DMZ
server.

To set up a default DMZ server:
1. On the WAN Setup screen, select the Default DMZ Server check box.
2. Type the IP address.
3. Click Apply.

Change the MTU Size
The maximum transmission unit (MTU) is the largest data packet a network device transmits.
When one network device communicates across the Internet with another, the data packets
travel through many devices along the way. If any device in the data path has a lower MTU
setting than the other devices, the data packets have to be split or “fragmented” to
accommodate the device with the smallest MTU.
The best MTU setting for NETGEAR equipment is often just the default value, and changing
the value might fix one problem but cause another. Leave MTU unchanged unless one of
these situations occurs:
•
You have problems connecting to your ISP or other Internet service, and the technical
support of either the ISP or NETGEAR recommends changing the MTU setting. These
web-based applications might require an MTU change:
-
A secure website that will not open, or displays only part of a web page
-
Yahoo email
-
MSN portal
-
America Online’s DSL service
•
You use VPN and have severe performance problems.
•
You used a program to optimize MTU for performance reasons, and now you have
connectivity or performance problems.
Note: An incorrect MTU setting can cause Internet communication
problems such as the inability to access certain websites, frames
within websites, secure login pages, or FTP or POP servers.
If you suspect an MTU problem, a common solution is to change the MTU to 1400. If you are
willing to experiment, you can gradually reduce the MTU from the maximum value of 1500
until the problem goes away. The following table describes common MTU sizes and
applications.

LAN Setup
The LAN Setup screen allows configuration of LAN IP services such as Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Routing Information Protocol (RIP).
The wireless modem router is shipped preconfigured to use private IP addresses on the LAN
side and to act as a DHCP server. The wireless modem router’s default LAN IP configuration
is:
•
LAN IP address. 192.168.1.1
•
Subnet mask. 255.255.255.0
These addresses are part of the designated private address range for use in private networks
and should be suitable for most applications. If your network has a requirement to use a
different IP addressing scheme, you can make those changes in the LAN Setup screen.

To change the LAN settings:
Note: If you change the LAN IP address of the wireless modem router
while connected through the browser, you will be disconnected. You
will have to open a new connection to the new IP address and log in
again.

LAN TCP/IP Setup
•
IP Address. The LAN IP address of the wireless modem router.
•
IP Subnet Mask. The LAN subnet mask of the wireless modem router. Combined with
the IP address, the IP subnet mask allows a device to know which other addresses are
local to it, and which have to be reached through a gateway or wireless modem router.
•
RIP Direction. Router Information Protocol (RIP) allows a router to exchange routing
information with other routers. This setting controls how the router sends and receives
RIP packets. Both is the default setting. With the Both or Out Only setting, the router
broadcasts its routing table periodically. With the Both or In Only setting, the router
incorporates the RIP information that it receives.
•
RIP Version. This controls the format and the broadcasting method of the RIP packets
that the wireless modem router sends. It recognizes both formats when receiving. By
default, the RIP function is disabled.
-
RIP-1 is universally supported. It is adequate for most networks, unless you have an
unusual network setup.
-
RIP-2 carries more information. Both RIP-2B and RIP-2M send the routing data in
RIP-2 format. RIP-2B uses subnet broadcasting. RIP-2M uses multicasting.
Use Router as a DHCP Server
This check box is usually selected so that the wireless modem router functions as a Dynamic
Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server.
•
Starting IP Address. Specify the start of the range for the pool of IP addresses in the
same subnet as the wireless modem router.
•
Ending IP Address. Specify the end of the range for the pool of IP addresses in the
same subnet as the wireless modem router.
Address Reservation
When you specify a reserved IP address for a computer on the LAN, that computer receives
the same IP address each time it accesses the wireless modem router’s DHCP server.
Assign reserved IP addresses to servers that require permanent IP settings.
Use the Wireless Modem Router as a DHCP Server
By default, the wireless modem router functions as a DHCP server, allowing it to assign IP,
DNS server, and default gateway addresses to all computers connected to the wireless
modem router’s LAN. The assigned default gateway address is the LAN address of the
wireless modem router. The wireless modem router assigns IP addresses to the attached
computers from a pool of addresses specified in this screen. Each pool address is tested
before it is assigned to avoid duplicate addresses on the LAN. For most applications, the
default DHCP and TCP/IP settings of the wireless modem router are satisfactory.
Genie Advanced Home
51
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
You can specify the pool of IP addresses to be assigned by setting the starting IP address
and ending IP address. These addresses should be part of the same IP address subnet as
the wireless modem router’s LAN IP address. Using the default addressing scheme, you
should define a range between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.254, although you might want to
save part of the range for devices with fixed addresses.
The wireless modem router delivers the following parameters to any LAN device that
requests DHCP:
•
An IP address from the range you have defined
•
Subnet mask
•
Gateway IP address (the wireless modem router’s LAN IP address)
•
Primary DNS server (if you entered a primary DNS address in the Internet Basic Settings
screen; otherwise, the wireless modem router’s LAN IP address)
•
Secondary DNS server (if you entered a secondary DNS address in the Internet Basic
Settings screen)
To use another device on your network as the DHCP server, or to manually configure the
network settings of all of your computers, clear the Use Router as DHCP Server check box
and click Apply. Otherwise, leave this check box selected. If this service is not enabled and
no other DHCP server is available on your network, you need to set your computers’ IP
addresses manually or they will not be able to access the wireless modem router.
Address Reservation
When you specify a reserved IP address for a computer on the LAN, that computer always
receives the same IP address each time it accesses the wireless modem router’s DHCP
server. Reserved IP addresses should be assigned to computers or servers that require
permanent IP settings.

To reserve an IP address:
1. In the Address Reservation section of the screen, click the Add button.
2. In the IP Address field, type the IP address to assign to the computer or server. (Choose an
IP address from the wireless modem router’s LAN subnet, such as 192.168.1.x.)
3. Type the MAC address of the computer or server.
Tip: If the computer is already on your network, you can copy its MAC
address from the Attached Devices screen and paste it here.
4. Click Apply to enter the reserved address into the table.
The reserved address is not assigned until the next time the computer contacts the
wireless modem router’s DHCP server. Reboot the computer or access its IP
configuration and force a DHCP release and renew.
To edit or delete a reserved address entry, select the radio button next to the reserved
address you want to edit or delete. Then click Edit or Delete.

Quality of Service (QoS) Setup
QoS is an advanced feature that can be used to prioritize some types of traffic ahead of
others. The N600 Modem Router can provide QoS prioritization over the wireless link and on
the Internet connection. To configure QoS, use the QoS Setup screen.
Select Advanced > Setup > QoS Setup to display the following screen:
Enable WMM QoS for Wireless Multimedia Applications
The N600 Modem Router supports Wi-Fi Multimedia Quality of Service (WMM QoS) to
prioritize wireless voice and video traffic over the wireless link. WMM QoS provides
prioritization of wireless data packets from different applications based on four access
categories: voice, video, best effort, and background. For an application to receive the
benefits of WMM QoS, both it and the client running that application have to have WMM
enabled. Legacy applications that do not support WMM and applications that do not require
QoS are assigned to the best effort category, which receives a lower priority than voice and
video.
WMM QoS is enabled by default. You can disable it in the QoS Setup screen by clearing the
Enable WMM check box and clicking Apply.
Set Up QoS for Internet Access
You can give prioritized Internet access to the following types of traffic:
•

File-Sharing Scenarios
You can share files on the USB drive for a wide variety of business and recreational
purposes. The files can be any Windows, Mac, or Linux file type including text files, Word,
PowerPoint, Excel, MP3, pictures, and multimedia. USB drive applications include:
•
Sharing multimedia such as MP3 files, pictures, and other multimedia with local and
remote users.
•
Sharing resources on your network. You might want to store files in a central location so
that you do not have to power up a computer to perform local sharing. In addition, you
can share files between Macintosh, Linux, and Windows computers by using the USB
drive as a go-between across the systems.
•
Sharing files such as Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and text files with
remote users.
A few common uses are described in the following sections.
Share Photos
You can create your own central storage location for photos and multimedia. This eliminates
the need to log in to (and pay for) an external photo-sharing site.

To share files with your friends and family:
1. Insert your USB drive into the USB port on the wireless modem router either directly or
with a USB cable.
Computers on your local area network (LAN) can automatically access this USB drive
using a web browser or Microsoft Networking.
2. If you want to specify read-only access or to allow access from the Internet, see USB
Storage Advanced Settings on page 63.
Store Files in a Central Location for Printing
This scenario is for a family that has one high-quality color printer directly attached to a
computer, but not shared on the local area network (LAN). This family does not have a print
server.

•
One family member has photos on a Macintosh computer that she wants to print.
•
The photo-capable color printer is directly attached to a computer, but not shared on the
network.
•
The Mac and PC are not visible to each other on the network.
To print photos from a Mac on the printer attached to a PC:
1. On the Mac, access the USB drive by typing \\readyshare in the address field of a web
browser. Then copy the photos to the USB drive.
2. On the PC, use a web browser or Microsoft Networking to copy the files from the USB drive
to the PC. Then print the files.

Firewall Rules
Services are functions performed by server computers at the request of client computers. For
example, web servers serve web pages, time servers serve time and date information, and
game hosts serve data about other players’ moves. When a computer on the Internet sends a
request for service to a server computer, the requested service is identified by a service or
port number. This number appears as the destination port number in the transmitted IP
packets. For example, a packet that is sent with the destination port number 80 is an HTTP
(web server) request.
The service numbers for many common protocols are defined by the Internet Engineering
Task Force (IETF at http://www.ietf.org/) and published in RFC1700, “Assigned Numbers.”
Service numbers for other applications are typically chosen from the range 1024 to 65535 by
the authors of the application. Although the wireless modem router already holds a list of
many service port numbers, you are not limited to these choices. You can often determine
port number information by contacting the publisher of the application, by asking user groups
or newsgroups, or by searching.
The Firewall Rules screen lets you to block or allow specific Internet traffic services by
computers on your network. This is called service blocking or port filtering.
Note: This feature is for Advanced Administrators only. Incorrect
configuration can cause serious problems.

Wireless Repeating Function (WDS)
You can set the N600 Modem Router up to be used as a wireless access point (AP). Doing
this enables the wireless modem router to act as a wireless repeater. A wireless repeater
connects to another wireless wireless modem router as a client where the network to which it
connects becomes the ISP service.
Wireless repeating is a type of Wireless Distribution System (WDS). A WDS allows a wireless
network to be expanded through multiple access points instead of using a wired backbone to
link them. The following figure shows a wireless repeating scenario.

Note: If you use the wireless repeating function, you need to select either
WEP or None as a security option in the Wireless Settings screen.
The WEP option displays only if you select the wireless mode Up to
54 Mbps in the Wireless Settings screen.
Wireless Base Station. The wireless modem router acts as the parent access point, bridging
traffic to and from the child repeater access point, as well as handling wireless and wired

96
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
local computers. To configure this mode, you have to know the MAC addresses of the child
repeater access point.
Wireless Repeater. The wireless modem router sends all traffic from its local wireless or
wired computers to a remote access point. To configure this mode, you have to know the
MAC address of the remote parent access point.
The DGND3700v2 wireless modem router is always in dual-band concurrent mode, unless
you turn off one radio. Be aware that if you enable the wireless repeater in either radio band,
the wireless base station or wireless repeater cannot be enabled in the other radio band.
However, if you enable the wireless base station in either radio band and use the other radio
band as a wireless wireless modem router or wireless base station, dual-band concurrent
mode is not affected.
For you to set up a wireless network with WDS, the following conditions have to be met for
both access points:
•
Both access points have to use the same SSID, wireless channel, and encryption mode.
•
Both access points have to be on the same LAN IP subnet. That is, all the access point
LAN IP addresses are in the same network.
•
All LAN devices (wired and wireless computers) have to be configured to operate in the
same LAN network address range as the access points.

Port Forwarding and Triggering
By default, the wireless modem router blocks inbound traffic from the Internet to your
computers except replies to your outbound traffic. You might need to create exceptions to this
rule for these purposes:
•
To allow remote computers on the Internet to access a server on your local network.
•
To allow certain applications and games to work correctly when their replies are not
recognized by your wireless modem router.
Your wireless modem router provides two features for creating these exceptions: port
forwarding and port triggering. The next sections provide background information to help you
understand how port forwarding and port triggering work, and the differences between the
two.
Remote Computer Access Basics
When a computer on your network needs to access a computer on the Internet, your
computer sends your wireless modem router a message containing the source and
destination address and process information. Before forwarding your message to the remote
computer, your wireless modem router has to modify the source information and create and
track the communication session so that replies can be routed back to your computer.
Here is an example of normal outbound traffic and the resulting inbound responses:
1. You open a browser, and your operating system assigns port number 5678 to this
browser session.
2. You type http://www.example.com into the URL field, and your computer creates a web page
request message with the following address and port information. The request message is
sent to your wireless modem router.
Source address. Your computer’s IP address.
Source port number. 5678, which is the browser session.
Destination address. The IP address of www.example.com, which your computer finds
by asking a DNS server.
Destination port number. 80, which is the standard port number for a web server
process.
Advanced Settings
100
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
3. Your wireless modem router creates an entry in its internal session table describing this
communication session between your computer and the web server at www.example.com.
Before sending the web page request message to www.example.com, your wireless
modem router stores the original information and then modifies the source information in the
request message, performing Network Address Translation (NAT):
• The source address is replaced with your wireless modem router’s public IP address.
This is necessary because your computer uses a private IP address that is not
globally unique and cannot be used on the Internet.
•
The source port number is changed to a number chosen by the wireless modem
router, such as 33333. This is necessary because two computers could
independently be using the same session number.
Your wireless modem router then sends this request message through the Internet to the
web server at www.example.com.
4. The web server at www.example.com composes a return message with the requested web
page data. The return message contains the following address and port information. The
web server then sends this reply message to your wireless modem router.
Source address. The IP address of www.example.com.
Source port number. 80, which is the standard port number for a web server process.
Destination address. The public IP address of your wireless modem router.
Destination port number. 33333.
5. Upon receiving the incoming message, your wireless modem router checks its session
table to determine whether there is an active session for port number 33333. Finding an
active session, the wireless modem router then modifies the message to restore the
original address information replaced by NAT. Your wireless modem router sends this reply
message to your computer, which displays the web page from www.example.com. The
message now contains the following address and port information.
Source address. The IP address of www.example.com.
Source port number. 80, which is the standard port number for a web server process.
Destination address. Your computer’s IP address.
Destination port number. 5678, which is the browser session that made the initial
request.
6. When you finish your browser session, your wireless modem router eventually detects a
period of inactivity in the communications. Your wireless modem router then removes the
session information from its session table, and incoming traffic is no longer accepted on port
number 33333.
Port Triggering to Open Incoming Ports
In the preceding example, requests are sent to a remote computer by your wireless modem
router from a particular service port number, and replies from the remote computer to your
wireless modem router are directed to that port number. If the remote server sends a reply
back to a different port number, your wireless modem router does not recognize it and
Advanced Settings
101
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
discards it. However, some application servers (such as FTP and IRC servers) send replies
back to multiple port numbers. Using the port triggering function of your wireless modem
router, you can tell the wireless modem router to open additional incoming ports when a
particular outgoing port originates a session.
An example is Internet Relay Chat (IRC). Your computer connects to an IRC server at
destination port 6667. The IRC server not only responds to your originating source port, but
also sends an “identify” message to your computer on port 113. Using port triggering, you can
tell the wireless modem router, “When you initiate a session with destination port 6667, you
have to also allow incoming traffic on port 113 to reach the originating computer.” Using steps
similar to the preceding example, the following sequence shows the effects of the port
triggering rule you have defined:
1. You open an IRC client program to start a chat session on your computer.
2. Your IRC client composes a request message to an IRC server using a destination port
number of 6667, the standard port number for an IRC server process. Your computer then
sends this request message to your wireless modem router.
3. Your wireless modem router creates an entry in its internal session table describing this
communication session between your computer and the IRC server. Your wireless modem
router stores the original information, performs Network Address Translation (NAT) on the
source address and port, and sends this request message through the Internet to the IRC
server.
4. Noting your port triggering rule and having observed the destination port number of 6667,
your wireless modem router creates an additional session entry to send any incoming port
113 traffic to your computer.
5. The IRC server sends a return message to your wireless modem router using the
NAT-assigned source port (as in the previous example, say port 33333) as the destination
port. The IRC server also sends an identify message to your wireless modem router with
destination port 113.
6. Upon receiving the incoming message to destination port 33333, your wireless modem
router checks its session table to determine whether there is an active session for port
number 33333. Finding an active session, the wireless modem router restores the original
address information replaced by NAT and sends this reply message to your computer.
7. Upon receiving the incoming message to destination port 113, your wireless modem router
checks its session table and learns that there is an active session for port 113, associated
with your computer. The wireless modem router replaces the message’s destination IP
address with your computer’s IP address and forwards the message to your computer.
8. When you finish your chat session, your wireless modem router eventually senses a period
of inactivity in the communications. The wireless modem router then removes the session
information from its session table, and incoming traffic is no longer accepted on port
numbers 33333 or 113.
To configure port triggering, you need to know which inbound ports the application needs.
Also, you need to know the number of the outbound port that will trigger the opening of the
inbound ports. You can usually determine this information by contacting the publisher of the
application or user groups or newsgroups.
Advanced Settings
102
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
Note: Only one computer at a time can use the triggered application.
Port Forwarding to Permit External Host Communications
In both of the preceding examples, your computer initiates an application session with a
server computer on the Internet. However, you might need to allow a client computer on the
Internet to initiate a connection to a server computer on your network. Normally, your wireless
modem router ignores any inbound traffic that is not a response to your own outbound traffic.
You can configure exceptions to this default rule by using the port forwarding feature.
A typical application of port forwarding can be shown by reversing the client-server
relationship from the previous web server example. In this case, a remote computer’s
browser needs to access a web server running on a computer in your local network. Using
port forwarding, you can tell the wireless modem router, “When you receive incoming traffic
on port 80 (the standard port number for a web server process), forward it to the local
computer at 192.168.1.123.” The following sequence shows the effects of the port forwarding
rule you have defined:
1. The user of a remote computer opens a browser and requests a web page from
www.example.com, which resolves to the public IP address of your wireless modem
router. The remote computer composes a web page request message with the following
destination information:
Destination address. The IP address of www.example.com, which is the address of your
wireless modem router.
Destination port number. 80, which is the standard port number for a web server
process.
The remote computer then sends this request message through the Internet to your
wireless modem router.
2. Your wireless modem router receives the request message and looks in its rules table for
any rules covering the disposition of incoming port 80 traffic. Your port forwarding rule
specifies that incoming port 80 traffic should be forwarded to local IP address
192.168.1.123. Therefore, your wireless modem router modifies the destination information
in the request message:
The destination address is replaced with 192.168.1.123.
Your wireless modem router then sends this request message to your local network.
3. Your web server at 192.168.1.123 receives the request and composes a return message
with the requested web page data. Your web server then sends this reply message to your
wireless modem router.
4. Your wireless modem router performs Network Address Translation (NAT) on the source IP
address, and sends this request message through the Internet to the remote computer,
which displays the web page from www.example.com.
Advanced Settings
103
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
To configure port forwarding, you need to know which inbound ports the application needs.
You usually can determine this information by contacting the publisher of the application or
the relevant user groups and newsgroups.
How Port Forwarding Differs from Port Triggering
The following points summarize the differences between port forwarding and port triggering:
•
Port triggering can be used by any computer on your network, although only one
computer can use it at a time.
•
Port forwarding is configured for a single computer on your network.
•
Port triggering requires that you know the computer’s IP address in advance. The IP
address is captured automatically.
•
Port forwarding requires that you specify the computer’s IP address during configuration,
and the IP address can never change.
•
Port triggering requires specific outbound traffic to open the inbound ports, and the
triggered ports are closed after a period of no activity.
•
Port forwarding is always active and does not need to be triggered.
Set Up Port Forwarding to Local Servers
Using the port forwarding feature, you can allow certain types of incoming traffic to reach
servers on your local network. For example, you might want to make a local web server, FTP
server, or game server visible and available to the Internet.
Use the Port Forwarding/Port Triggering screen to configure the wireless modem router to
forward specific incoming protocols to computers on your local network. In addition to servers
for specific applications, you can also specify a default DMZ server to which all other
incoming protocols are forwarded.
Before starting, you need to determine which type of service, application, or game you want
to provide, and the local IP address of the computer that will provide the service. The server
computer has to always have the same IP address.

To set up port forwarding:
Tip: To ensure that your server computer always has the same IP address,
use the reserved IP address feature of your N600 Modem Router.

Application Example: Making a Local Web Server Public
If you host a web server on your local network, you can use port forwarding to allow web
requests from anyone on the Internet to reach your web server.

To make a local web server public:
1. Assign your web server either a fixed IP address or a dynamic IP address using DHCP
address reservation. In this example, your wireless modem router will always give your
web server an IP address of 192.168.1.33.
2. In the Port Forwarding/Port Triggering screen, configure the wireless modem router to
forward the HTTP service to the local address of your web server at 192.168.1.33. HTTP
(port 80) is the standard protocol for web servers.
3. (Optional) Register a host name with a Dynamic DNS service, and configure your wireless
modem router to use the name as described in Dynamic DNS on page 109. To access your
web server from the Internet, a remote user has to know the IP address that has been
assigned by your ISP. However, if you use a Dynamic DNS service, the remote user can
reach your server by a user-friendly Internet name, such as mynetgear.dyndns.org.
Set Up Port Triggering
Port triggering is a dynamic extension of port forwarding that is useful in these cases:
•
More than one local computer needs port forwarding for the same application (but not
simultaneously).
•
An application needs to open incoming ports that are different from the outgoing port.
When port triggering is enabled, the wireless modem router monitors outbound traffic looking
for a specified outbound “trigger” port. When the wireless modem router detects outbound
traffic on that port, it remembers the IP address of the local computer that sent the data. The
wireless modem router then temporarily opens the specified incoming port or ports, and
forwards incoming traffic on the triggered ports to the triggering computer.
While port forwarding creates a static mapping of a port number or range to a single local
computer, port triggering can dynamically open ports to any computer that needs them and
can close the ports when they are no longer needed.
Note: If you use applications such as multiplayer gaming, peer-to-peer
connections, real-time communications such as instant messaging,
or remote assistance (a feature in Windows XP), you should also
enable Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) according to the instructions
in Universal Plug and Play on page 114.
Advanced Settings
107
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
To set up port triggering, you need to know which inbound ports the application needs. Also,
you need to know the number of the outbound port that will trigger the opening of the inbound
ports. You can usually determine this information by contacting the publisher of the
application or user groups or newsgroups.

To set up port triggering:
1. Select Advanced > Advanced Setup > Port Forwarding/Port Triggering.
2. Select the Port Triggering radio button to display the port triggering information.
3. Clear the Disable Port Triggering check box if it is selected.
Note: If the Disable Port Triggering check box is selected after you configure
port triggering, port triggering is disabled. However, any port triggering
configuration information you added to the wireless modem router is retained
even though it is not used.
4. In the Port Triggering Timeout field, enter a value up to 9999 minutes.
This value controls the inactivity timer for the designated inbound ports. The inbound
ports close when the inactivity time expires. This is required because the wireless modem
router cannot be sure when the application has terminated.

11. Click Apply. The service appears in the Port Triggering Portmap table.
Dynamic DNS
If your Internet service provider (ISP) gave you a permanently assigned IP address, you can
register a domain name and have that name linked with your IP address by public Domain
Name Servers (DNS). However, if your Internet account uses a dynamically assigned IP
address, you do not know in advance what your IP address will be, and the address can
change frequently. In this case, you can use a commercial Dynamic DNS service. This type
of service lets you register your domain to their IP address and forwards traffic directed at
your domain to your frequently changing IP address.
If your ISP assigns a private WAN IP address (such as 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x), the Dynamic
DNS service will not work because private addresses are not routed on the Internet.
Advanced Settings
109
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
Your wireless modem router contains a client that can connect to the Dynamic DNS service
provided by DynDNS.org. First visit their website at http://www.dyndns.org and obtain an
account and host name that you configure in the wireless modem router. Then, whenever
your ISP-assigned IP address changes, your wireless modem router automatically contacts
the Dynamic DNS service provider, logs in to your account, and registers your new IP
address. If your host name is hostname, for example, you can reach your wireless modem
router at http://hostname.dyndns.org.
On the Advanced tab, select Advanced Setup > Dynamic DNS to display the following
screen:

N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
Static Routes
Static routes provide additional routing information to your wireless modem router. Under
usual circumstances, the wireless modem router has adequate routing information after it has
been configured for Internet access, and you do not need to configure additional static
routes. You have to configure static routes only for unusual cases such as multiple wireless
modem routers or multiple IP subnets located on your network.
As an example of when a static route is needed, consider the following case:
•
Your primary Internet access is through a cable modem to an ISP.
•
You have an ISDN wireless modem router on your home network for connecting to the
company where you are employed. This wireless modem router’s address on your LAN is
192.168.1.100.
•
Your company’s network address is 134.177.0.0.
When you first configured your wireless modem router, two implicit static routes were
created. A default route was created with your ISP as the gateway, and a second static route
was created to your local network for all 192.168.1.x addresses. With this configuration, if
you attempt to access a device on the 134.177.0.0 network, your wireless modem router
forwards your request to the ISP. The ISP forwards your request to the company where you
are employed, and the request is likely to be denied by the company’s firewall.
In this case you have to define a static route, telling your wireless modem router that
134.177.0.0 should be accessed through the ISDN wireless modem router at 192.168.1.100.
In this example:
•
The Destination IP Address and IP Subnet Mask fields specify that this static route
applies to all 134.177.x.x addresses.
•
The Gateway IP Address field specifies that all traffic for these addresses should be
forwarded to the ISDN wireless modem router at 192.168.1.100.
•
A metric value of 1 will work since the ISDN wireless modem router is on the LAN.
•
Private is selected only as a precautionary security measure in case RIP is activated.

To set up a static route:
1. Select Advanced > Advanced Setup > Static Routes, and click Add to display the
following screen:
2. In the Route Name field, type a name for this static route (for identification purposes only.
3. Select the Private check box if you want to limit access to the LAN only. If Private is
selected, the static route is not reported in RIP.
4. Select the Active check box to make this route effective.
5. Type the IP address of the final destination.
6. Type the IP subnet mask for this destination. If the destination is a single host, type
255.255.255.255.
7. Type the gateway IP address, which has to be a wireless modem router on the same LAN
segment as the N600 Modem Router.
8. Type a number between 1 and 15 as the metric value.
This value represents the number of wireless modem routers between your network and
the destination. Usually, a setting of 2 or 3 works, but if this is a direct connection, set it to
1.

you use port number 8080, enter http://134.177.0.123:8080 in your browser.
USB Settings
For added security, the wireless modem router can be set up to share only approved USB
devices. See Specify Approved USB Devices on page 66 for the procedure.
Universal Plug and Play
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) helps devices, such as Internet appliances and computers,
to access the network and connect to other devices as needed. UPnP devices can
automatically discover the services from other registered UPnP devices on the network.
Note: If you use applications such as multiplayer gaming, peer-to-peer
connections, or real-time communications such as instant
messaging or remote assistance (a feature in Windows XP), you
should enable UPnP.

To turn on Universal Plug and Play:
1. Select Advanced > Advanced Setup > UPnP. The UPnP screen displays.
2. The available settings and information in this screen are:
Turn UPnP On. UPnP can be enabled or disabled for automatic device configuration.
The default setting for UPnP is disabled. If this check box is not selected, the wireless
modem router does not allow any device to automatically control the resources, such as
port forwarding (mapping) of the wireless modem router.
Advertisement Period. The advertisement period is how often the wireless modem
router broadcasts its UPnP information. This value can range from 1 to 1440 minutes.
The default period is 30 minutes. Shorter durations ensure that control points have
current device status at the expense of additional network traffic. Longer durations can
compromise the freshness of the device status, but can significantly reduce network
traffic.
Advertisement Time to Live. The time to live for the advertisement is measured in hops
(steps) for each UPnP packet sent. The time to live hop count is the number of steps a
broadcast packet is allowed to propagate for each UPnP advertisement before it
disappears. The number of hops can range from 1 to 255. The default value for the
advertisement time to live is 4 hops, which should be fine for most home networks. If you
notice that some devices are not being updated or reached correctly, then it might be
necessary to increase this value.
UPnP Portmap Table. The UPnP Portmap Table displays the IP address of each UPnP
device that is currently accessing the wireless modem router and which ports (internal
and external) that device has opened. The UPnP Portmap Table also displays what type
of port is open and whether that port is still active for each IP address.

Sequence to Restart Your Network
Be sure to restart your network in this sequence:
1. Turn off and unplug the modem.
2. Turn off the wireless modem router and computers.
3. Plug in the modem and turn it on. Wait two minutes.
4. Turn on the wireless modem router and wait two minutes.
5. Turn on the computers.
Check Ethernet Cable Connections
Make sure that the Ethernet cables are securely plugged in.
•
The Internet status LED on the wireless modem router is on if the Ethernet cable
connecting the wireless modem router and the modem is plugged in securely and the
modem and wireless modem router are turned on.
•
For each powered-on computer connected to the wireless modem router by an Ethernet
cable, the corresponding numbered router LAN port LED is on.
Wireless Settings
Make sure that the wireless settings in the computer and wireless modem router match
exactly.
•
For a wirelessly connected computer, the wireless network name (SSID) and wireless
security settings of the wireless modem router and wireless computer need to match
exactly.
•
If you set up an access list in the Advanced Wireless Settings screen, you have to add
each wireless computer’s MAC address to the wireless modem router’s access list.
Network Settings
Make sure that the network settings of the computer are correct.
•
Wired and wirelessly connected computers need to have network (IP) addresses on the
same network as the wireless modem router. The simplest way to do this is to configure
each computer to obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP.
•
Some cable modem service providers require you to use the MAC address of the
computer initially registered on the account. You can view the MAC address in the
Attached Devices screen.

N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
Cannot Log In to the Router
If you are unable to log in to the wireless modem router from a computer on your local
network, check the following:
•
If you are using an Ethernet-connected computer, check the Ethernet connection
between the computer and the wireless modem router as described in the previous
section.
•
Make sure that your computer’s IP address is on the same subnet as the wireless modem
router. If you are using the recommended addressing scheme, your computer’s address
should be in the range of 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254.
•
If your computer’s IP address is shown as 169.254.x.x, recent versions of Windows and
MacOS generate and assign an IP address if the computer cannot reach a DHCP server.
These autogenerated addresses are in the range of 169.254.x.x. If your IP address is in
this range, check the connection from the computer to the wireless modem router, and
reboot your computer.
•
If your wireless modem router’s IP address was changed and you do not know the current
IP address, clear the wireless modem router’s configuration to factory defaults. This sets
the wireless modem router’s IP address to 192.168.1.1. This procedure is explained in
Factory Settings on page 130.
•
Make sure that your browser has Java, JavaScript, or ActiveX enabled. If you are using
Internet Explorer, click Refresh to be sure that the Java applet is loaded.
•
Try quitting the browser and launching it again.
•
Make sure that you are using the correct login information. The factory default login name
is admin, and the password is password. Make sure that Caps Lock is off when you
enter this information.
•
If you are attempting to set up your NETGEAR wireless modem router as an additional
router behind an existing router in your network, consider replacing the existing router
instead. NETGEAR does not support such a configuration.
•
If you are attempting to set up your NETGEAR wireless modem router as a replacement
for an ADSL gateway in your network, the wireless modem router cannot perform many
gateway services, for example, converting ADSL or cable data into Ethernet networking
information. NETGEAR does not support such a configuration.
Cannot Access the Internet
If you can access your router but you are unable to access the Internet, first determine
whether the wireless modem router can obtain an IP address from your Internet service
provider (ISP). Unless your ISP provides a fixed IP address, your wireless modem router
requests an IP address from the ISP. You can determine whether the request was successful
using the Router Status screen.

To check the WAN IP address:
1. Start your browser, and select an external site such as http://www.netgear.com.
Troubleshooting
123
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
2. Access the wireless modem router interface at http://www.routerlogin.net.
3. Select Administration > Router Status.
4. Check that an IP address is shown for the Internet port. If 0.0.0.0 is shown, your wireless
modem router has not obtained an IP address from your ISP.
If your wireless modem router cannot obtain an IP address from the ISP, you might need to
force your cable or DSL modem to recognize your new wireless modem router by restarting
your network, as described in Sequence to Restart Your Network on page 120.
If your wireless modem router is still unable to obtain an IP address from the ISP, the problem
might be one of the following:
•
Your Internet service provider (ISP) might require a login program.
Ask your ISP whether they require PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE) or some other type of
login.
•
If your ISP requires a login, the login name and password might be set incorrectly.
•
Your ISP might check for your computer’s host name.
Assign the computer host name of your ISP account as the account name in the Internet
Basic Settings screen.
•
Your ISP allows only one Ethernet MAC address to connect to Internet and might check
for your computer’s MAC address. In this case, do one of the following:
-
Inform your ISP that you have bought a new network device, and ask them to use the
wireless modem router’s MAC address.
-
Configure your wireless modem router to clone your computer’s MAC address.
If your wireless modem router can obtain an IP address, but your computer is unable to load
any web pages from the Internet:
•
Your computer might not recognize any DNS server addresses.
A DNS server is a host on the Internet that translates Internet names (such as www
addresses) to numeric IP addresses. Typically, your ISP provides the addresses of one or
two DNS servers for your use. If you entered a DNS address during the wireless modem
router’s configuration, reboot your computer, and verify the DNS address.You can
configure your computer manually with DNS addresses, as explained in your operating
system documentation.
•
Your computer might not have the wireless modem router configured as its TCP/IP
gateway.
If your computer obtains its information from the wireless modem router by DHCP, reboot
the computer, and verify the gateway address.
•
You might be running login software that is no longer needed.
If your ISP provided a program to log you in to the Internet (such as WinPoET), you no
longer need to run that software after installing your wireless modem router. You might
need to go to Internet Explorer and select Tools > Internet Options, click the
Connections tab, and select Never dial a connection.

To troubleshoot a PPPoE connection:
1. Log in to the wireless modem router.
2. Select Administration > Router Status.
3. Click Connection Status. If all of the steps indicate OK, then your PPPoE connection is
up and working.
If any of the steps indicate Failed, you can attempt to reconnect by clicking Connect. The
wireless modem router continues to attempt to connect indefinitely.
If you cannot connect after several minutes, you might be using an incorrect service name,
user name, or password. There also might be a provisioning problem with your ISP.
Note: Unless you connect manually, the wireless modem router does not
authenticate using PPPoE until data is transmitted to the network.
Troubleshoot Internet Browsing
If your wireless modem router can obtain an IP address but your computer is unable to load
any web pages from the Internet, check the following:
•
Your computer might not recognize any DNS server addresses. A DNS server is a host
on the Internet that translates Internet names (such as www addresses) to numeric IP
addresses.
Typically, your ISP provides the addresses of one or two DNS servers for your use. If you
entered a DNS address during the wireless modem router’s configuration, restart your
computer.
Alternatively, you can configure your computer manually with a DNS address, as
explained in the documentation for your computer.
•
Your computer might not have the wireless modem router configured as its default
gateway.
Reboot the computer, and verify that the wireless modem router address
(www.routerlogin.net) is listed by your computer as the default gateway address.
•
You might be running login software that is no longer needed. If your ISP provided a
program to log you in to the Internet (such as WinPoET), you no longer need to run that
software after installing your wireless modem router. You might need to go to Internet
Explorer and select Tools > Internet Options, click the Connections tab, and select
Never dial a connection.
If the wireless modem router does not save changes you have made in the browser
interface, check the following:
Troubleshooting

N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
•
When entering configuration settings, be sure to click Apply before moving to another
screen or tab, or your changes could be lost.
•
Click Refresh or Reload in the web browser. The changes might have occurred, but the
web browser might be caching the old configuration.
Changes Not Saved
If the wireless modem router does not save the changes you make in the wireless modem
router interface, check the following:
•
When entering configuration settings, always click the Apply button before moving to
another screen or tab, or your changes are lost.
•
Click the Refresh or Reload button in the web browser. The changes might have
occurred, but the old settings might be in the web browser’s cache.
Incorrect Date or Time
Select Advanced > Security > Schedule to display the current date and time. The wireless
modem router uses the Network Time Protocol (NTP) to obtain the current time from one of
several network time servers on the Internet. Each entry in the log is stamped with the date
and time of day. Problems with the date and time function can include the following:
•
Date shown is January 1, 2000. This means the wireless modem router has not yet
successfully reached a network time server. Check that your Internet access is configured
correctly. If you have just finished setting up the wireless modem router, wait at least five
minutes, and check the date and time again.
•
Time is off by one hour. The wireless modem router does not automatically sense daylight
saving time. In the Schedule screen, select the Automatically adjust for daylight savings
time check box.
Wireless Connectivity
If you are having trouble connecting wirelessly to the wireless modem router, try to isolate the
problem.
•
Does the wireless device or computer that you are using find your wireless network?
If not, check the Wireless LEDs on the front of the wireless modem router. They should
be lit. If they are not, you can press the WiFi On/Off button on the back of the wireless
modem router to turn the wireless modem router’s wireless radio back on.
If you disabled the wireless modem router’s SSID broadcast, then your wireless network
is hidden and does not show up in your wireless client’s scanning list. (By default, SSID
broadcast is enabled.)
Troubleshooting
126
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
•
Does your wireless device support the security that you are using for your wireless
network (WPA or WPA2)?
•
If you want to view the wireless settings for the wireless modem router, use an Ethernet
cable to connect a computer to a LAN port on the wireless modem router. Then log in to
the wireless modem router and select Setup > Wireless Settings see (Basic Wireless
Settings on page 34).
Note: Be sure to click Apply if you make changes.
Wireless Signal Strength
If your wireless device finds your network, but the signal strength is weak, check these
conditions:
•
Is your wireless modem router too far from your computer, or too close? Place your
computer near the wireless modem router, but at least 6 feet away, and see whether the
signal strength improves.
•
Is your wireless signal blocked by objects between the wireless modem router and your
computer?
Restore the Factory Settings and Password
This section explains how to restore the factory settings, changing the wireless modem
router’s administration password back to password. You can erase the current configuration
and restore factory defaults in two ways:
•
Use the Erase function of the wireless modem router (see Erase on page 88).
•
Use the Restore Factory Settings button on the back of the wireless modem router. See
Factory Settings on page 130. If you restore the factory settings and the wireless modem
router fails to restart, or the green Power LED continues to blink, the unit might be
defective. If the error persists, you might have a hardware problem and should contact
technical support at http://www.netgear.com/support.
Troubleshoot Your Network Using the Ping Utility
Most network devices and routers contain a ping utility that sends an echo request packet to
the designated device. The device then responds with an echo reply. You can easily
troubleshoot a network by using the ping utility in your computer or workstation.
Test the LAN Path to Your Router
You can ping the wireless modem router from your computer to verify that the LAN path to
your wireless modem router is set up correctly.
Troubleshooting
127
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2

To ping the wireless modem router from a computer running Windows:
1. From the Windows toolbar, click Start, and then select Run.
2. In the field provided, type ping followed by the IP address of the wireless modem router, as
in this example:
ping www.routerlogin.net
3. Click OK.
You should see a message like this one:
Pinging <IP address > with 32 bytes of data
If the path is working, you see this message:
Reply from < IP address >: bytes=32 time=NN ms TTL=xxx
If the path is not working, you see this message:
Request timed out
If the path is not functioning correctly, you could have one of the following problems:
•
Wrong physical connections
For a wired connection, make sure that the numbered LAN port LED is on for the port to
which you are connected.
Check that the appropriate LEDs are on for your network devices. If your wireless modem
router and computer are connected to a separate Ethernet switch, make sure that the
Ethernet LEDs are on for the switch ports that are connected to your computer and
wireless modem router.
•
Wrong network configuration
Verify that the Ethernet card driver software and TCP/IP software are both installed and
configured on your computer.
Verify that the IP address for your wireless modem router and your computer are correct
and that the addresses are on the same subnet.
Test the Path from Your Computer to a Remote Device
After verifying that the LAN path works correctly, test the path from your computer to a remote
device.
1. From the Windows toolbar, click the Start button, and then select Run.
2. In the Windows Run window, type:
ping -n 10 <IP address>
where <IP address> is the IP address of a remote device such as your ISP’s DNS server.
If the path is functioning correctly, replies like those shown in the previous section are
displayed.
Troubleshooting
128
N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit ADSL2+ Modem Router DGND3700v2
If you do not receive replies:
•
Check that your computer has the IP address of your wireless modem router listed as the
default gateway. If the IP configuration of your computer is assigned by DHCP, this
information is not be visible in your computer’s Network Control Panel. Verify that the IP
address of the wireless modem router is listed as the default gateway.
•
Check to see that the network address of your computer (the portion of the IP address
specified by the subnet mask) is different from the network address of the remote device.
•
Check that your cable or DSL modem is connected and functioning.
•
If your ISP assigned a host name to your computer, enter that host name as the account
name in the Internet Basic Settings screen.
•
Your ISP could be rejecting the Ethernet MAC addresses of all but one of your computers.
Many broadband ISPs restrict access by allowing traffic only from the MAC address of your
broadband modem, but some ISPs additionally restrict access to the MAC address of a
single computer connected to that modem. If this is the case, configure your wireless modem
router to “clone” or “spoof” the MAC address from the authorized computer.
