Network Security
This chapter guides you on how to protect your home network from cyber attacks
and unauthorized users by implementing these three network security functions. You
can protect your home network against DoS (Denial of Service) attacks from flooding
your network with server requests using DoS Protection, block or allow specific client
devices to access your network using Access Control, or you can prevent ARP spoofing
and ARP attacks using IP & MAC Binding function.
This chapter contains the following sections:
• Protect the Network from Cyber Attacks
• Access Control
• IP & MAC Binding
Chapter 9
9. 1.
Network Security
Protect the Network from Cyber Attacks
The SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection) Firewall and DoS (Denial of Service) Protection
protect the router from cyber attacks.
The SPI Firewall can prevent cyber attacks and validate the traffic that is passing
through the router based on the protocol. This function is enabled by default, and it’s
recommended to keep the default setting.
DoS Protection can protect your home network against DoS attacks from flooding your
network with server requests. Follow the steps below to configure DoS Protection.
1. Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with the username and password you set for
the router.
2. Go to Advanced > Security > Settings.
Note:
DoS protection and Traffic Statistics must be enabled at the same time, please refer to 12. 10. Monitor the
Internet Traffic Statistics to enable Traffic Statistics first.
3. Enable DoS Protection.
4. Set the level (Off, Low, Middle or High) of protection for ICMP-FLOOD Attack
Filtering, UDP-FlOOD Attack Filtering and TCP-SYN-FLOOD Attack Filtering.
•
ICMP-FLOOD Attack Filtering - Enable to prevent the Internet Control Message
Protocol (ICMP) flood attack.
•
UDP-FlOOD Attack Filtering - Enable to prevent the User Datagram Protocol
(UDP) flood attack.

NAT Forwarding
Router’s NAT (Network Address Translation) feature makes the devices in the LAN use
the same public IP address to communicate in the Internet, which protect the local
network by hiding IP addresses of the devices. However, it also brings about the
problem that external host cannot initiatively communicate with the specified device
in the local network.
With forwarding feature the router can penetrate the isolation of NAT and allows the
external hosts in the Internet to initiatively communicate with the devices in the local
network, thus to realize some special functions.
TP-LINK router includes four forwarding rules. If two or more rules are set, the priority
of implementation from high to low is Virtual Servers, Port Triggering, UPNP and DMZ.
This chapter contains the following sections:
• Share Local Resources in the Internet by Virtual Server
• Open Ports Dynamically by Port Triggering
• Make Applications Free from Port Restriction by DMZ
• Make Xbox Online Games Run Smoothly by UPnP
Chapter 10
NAT Forwarding
10. 1. Share Local Resources in the Internet by Virtual
Server
When you build up a server in the local network and want to share it on the Internet,
Virtual Server can realize the service and provide it to the Internet users. At the same
time virtual server can keep the local network safe as other services are still invisible
from the Internet.
Virtual server can be used for setting up public services in your local network, such as
HTTP, FTP, DNS, POP3/SMTP and Telnet. Different service uses different service port.
Port 80 is used in HTTP service, port 21 in FTP service, port 25 in SMTP service and port
110 in POP3 service. Please verify the service port number before the configuration.
I want to:
Share my personal website I’ve built in local network with my
friends through the Internet.
For example, the personal website has been built in my home
PC (192.168.0.100). I hope that my friends in the Internet can
visit my website in some way. The PC is connected to the router
with the WAN IP address 218.18.232.154.
Personal Website
Router
LAN
WAN: 218.18.232.154
Home
How can I
do that?
1. Assign a static IP address to your PC, for example
192.168.0.100.
2. Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with the username and
password you set for the router.
3. Go to Advanced > NAT Forwarding > Virtual Servers, click Add.
4. Click View Existing Services, and select HTTP. The external
port, internal port and protocol will be automatically filled
with contents. Enter the PC’s IP address 192.168.0.100 in the
Internal IP field.
5. Click OK to save the settings.
61
Chapter 10
NAT Forwarding
Tips:
1. It is recommended to keep the default settings of Internal Port and Protocol if you
are not clear about which port and protocol to use.
2. If the service you want to use is not in the Service Type, you can enter the
corresponding parameters manually. You should verify the port number that the
service need.
3. You can add multiple virtual server rules if you want to provide several services in
a router. Please note that the External Port should not be overlapped.
Done!
Users in the Internet can enter http:// WAN IP (in this example:
http:// 218.18.232.154) to visit your personal website.
Note:
Your configurations will not take effect if NAT function is disabled. Then you should
go to Advanced > System Tools > System Parameters page to enable NAT.
Tips:
1. WAN IP should be a public IP address. For the WAN IP is assigned dynamically by
ISP, it is recommended to apply and register a domain name for the WAN refer to
11. 4. Set Up a Dynamic DNS Service Account. Then you can use http:// domain name
to visit the website.
2. If you have changed the default External Port, you should use http:// WAN IP:
External Port or http:// domain name: External Port to visit the website.
10. 2. Open Ports Dynamically by Port Triggering
Port triggering can specify a triggering port and its corresponding external ports.
When a host in the local network initiates a connection to the triggering port, all the
external ports will be opened for subsequent connections. The router can record the IP
address of the host. When the data from the Internet return to the external ports, the
router can forward them to the corresponding host. Port triggering is mainly applied
to online games, VoIPs and video players. Common applications include MSN Gaming
Zone, Dialpad and Quick Time 4 players, etc.
62
Chapter 10
NAT Forwarding
Follow the steps below to configure the port triggering rules:
1.Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with the username and password you set for the
router.
2.Go to Advanced > NAT Forwarding > Port Triggering and click Add.
3.Click View Existing Applications, and select the desired application. The external port,
internal port and protocol will be automatically filled with contents. The following
picture takes application MSN Gaming Zone as an example.
4.Click OK to save the settings.
Note:
Your configurations will not take effect if NAT function is disabled. Then you should go to Advanced > System Tools >
System Parameters page to enable NAT.
Tips:
1. You can add multiple port triggering rules according to your network need.
2. The triggering ports can not be overlapped.
3. If the application you need is not listed in the Existing Applications list, please enter the parameters manually.
You should verify the external ports the application uses first and enter them into External Port field according
to the format the page displays.
10. 3. Make Applications Free from Port Restriction by
DMZ
When a PC is set to be a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) host in the local network, it is totally
exposed to the Internet, which can realize the unlimited bidirectional communication
between internal hosts and external hosts. The DMZ host becomes a virtual server with
all ports opened. When you are not clear about which ports to open in some special
63
Chapter 10
NAT Forwarding
applications, such as IP camera and database software, you can set the PC to be a DMZ
host.
Note:
DMZ is more applicable in the situation that users are not clear about which ports to open. When it is enabled, the
DMZ host is totally exposed to the Internet, which may bring some potential safety hazard. If DMZ is not in use,
please disable it in time.
I want to:
Make the home PC join the Internet online game without port
restriction.
For example, due to some port restriction, when playing the
online games, you can login normally but cannot join a team
with other players. To solve this problem, set your PC as a DMZ
with all ports opened.
How can I
do that?
1. Assign a static IP address to your PC, for example
192.168.0.100.
2. Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with the username and
password you set for the router.
3. Go to Advanced > NAT Forwarding > DMZ and select the
checkbox to enable DMZ.
4. Enter the IP address 192.168.0.100 in the DMZ Host IP
Address filed.
5. Click Save to save the settings.
Done!
The configuration is completed. You’ve set your PC to a DMZ
host and now you can make a team to game with other players.
Note:
Your configurations will not take effect if NAT function is disabled. Then you should
go to Advanced > System Tools > System Parameters page to enable NAT.
10. 4. Make Xbox Online Games Run Smoothly by UPnP
UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) protocol allows the applications or host devices
to automatically find the front-end NAT device and send request to it to open the
corresponding ports. With UPnP enabled, the applications or host devices in the
both sides of NAT device can freely communicate with each other realizing the
64
Chapter 10
NAT Forwarding
seamless connection of the network. You may need to enable the UPnP if you want
to use applications for multiplayer gaming, peer-to-peer connections, real-time
communication (such as VoIP or telephone conference) or remote assistance, etc.
Tips:
1. UPnP is enabled by default in this router.
2. Only the application supporting UPnP protocol can use this feature.
3. UPnP feature needs the support of operating system (e.g. Windows Vista/ Windows 7/ Windows 8, etc. Some of
operating system need to install the UPnP components).
For example, when you connect your Xbox to the router which has connected to
the Internet to play online games, UPnP will send request to the router to open the
corresponding ports allowing the following data penetrating the NAT to transmit.
Therefore, you can play Xbox online games without a hitch.
LAN
Xbox
WAN
Router
If necessary, you can follow the steps to change the status of UPnP.
1.Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with the username and password you set for the
router;
2.Go to Advanced > NAT Forwarding > UPnP and toggle on or off according to your
needs.
Note:
Your configurations will not take effect if NAT function is disabled. Then you should go to Advanced > System Tools >

router.
2.Go to Advanced > Network > LAN page.
3.Type in a new IP Address appropriate to your needs.
4.Leave the Subnet Mask as the default settings.
5.Click Save.
Note:
If you have set the Virtual Server, DMZ or DHCP address reservation, and the new LAN IP address is not in the same
subnet with the old one, then you should reconfigure them.
11. 2. Configure to Support IPTV Service
I want to:
Configure IPTV setup to enable Internet /IPTV /Phone service
provided by my Internet Service Provider (ISP).
How can
I do that?
1. Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with the username and
password you set for the router.

6.Click OK.
The IP address reservation is configured successfully, and you can see the rule shown
as below.
11. 4. Set Up a Dynamic DNS Service Account
Most ISPs (Internet service provieders) assign a dynamic IP address to the router and
you can use this IP address to access your router remotely. However, the IP address can
change any time and you don’t know when it changes. In this case, you might need
the DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Server) feature on the router to allow you and your
friends to access your router and local servers (FTP, HTTP, etc.) using domain name, in
no need of checking and remembering the IP address.
Note:
DDNS does not work if the ISP assigns a private WAN IP address (such as 192.168.1.x) to the router.
70
Chapter 11
Customize Your Network Settings
To set up DDNS, please follow the instructions below:
1.Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with the username and password you set for the
router.

3.Select the DDNS service provider (NO-IP or Dyndns). If you don’t have a DDNS
account, select a service provider and click Go to register.
4.Enter the username, password and domain name of the account (such as lisadns.
ddns.net).
5.Click Login and Save.
Tips:
If you want to use a new DDNS account, please Logout first, then login with the new account.
11. 5. Create Static Routes
Static routing is a form of routing that is configured manually by a network administrator
or a user by adding entries into a routing table. The manually-configured routing
information guides the router in forwarding data packets to the specific destination.
I want to:
Visit multiple networks and multiple servers at the same time.
For example, in a small office, my PC can surf the Internet, but I
also want to visit my company’s network. Now I have a switch and
another router. I connect the devices as shown in the following
figure so that the physical connection between my PC and my
company’s server is achieved. To surf the Internet and visit my
company’s network at the same time, I need to configure the
static routing.

address, so here enters 172.30.30.1.
Subnet Mask: Determines the destination network with the
destination IP address. If the destination is a single IP address,
enter 255.255.255.255; otherwise, enter the subnet mask of
the corresponding network IP. In the example, the destination
network is a single IP, so here enters 255.255.255.255.
Default Gateway: The IP address of the gateway device to which
the data packets will be sent. This IP address must be on the
same subnet with the router’s IP which sends out the data. In
the example, the data packets will be sent to the LAN port of
Router 2 and then to the Server, so the default gateway should
be 192.168.0.2.
Interface: Determined by the port (WAN/LAN) that sends out
the data packets. In the example, the data is sent to the gateway
through the LAN port, so LAN should be selected.

network?
For example, my house covers a large area. The wireless network coverage of the router
I’m using (the root router) is limited. I want to use an extended router to extend the
wireless network of the root router.
Note:
•
WDS bridging only requires configuration on the extended router;
•
WDS bridging function can be enabled either in 2.4GHz frequency or 5GHz frequency for a dual-band router. We
use the WDS bridging function in 2.4GHz frequency as an example.
1.Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with the username and password you set for the
router.
2.Configure the IP address of the router:
1 ) Go to Advanced >Network > LAN, configure the IP address of the extended
router to be in the same subnet with the root router; (For example, the IP
address of the root router is 192.168.0.1, the IP address of the extended router
can be 192.168.0.2~192.168.0.254. We take 192.168.0.2 as example.)
2 ) Click Save.
Note: Login to the web management page again if the IP address of the router is altered.
3.Survey the SSID to be bridged:
1 ) Go to Advanced >System Tools > System Parameters to load the 2.4GHz WDS ,
click Enable WDS Bridging;
2 ) Click Survey, locate the root router’s SSID and click Choose (Here we take TPLINK_2512 as example);
3 ) If the root router has wireless password, you should enter the wireless password
of the root router;
4 ) Click Save.
94
4.Disable DHCP:
1 ) Go to Network > DHCP Server;
2 ) Deselect Enable DHCP Server;
3 ) Click Save.
Now you can login to the web management page, click Advanced > Status > Wireless
to check the WDS status. When the WDS status is Run, it means WDS bridging is
successfully built.

Tips:
•
Some ISP will register the MAC address of your computer when you access the Internet for the first time
through their Cable modem, if you add a router into your network to share your Internet connection, the
ISP will not accept it as the MAC address is changed, so we need to clone your computer’s MAC address to
the router.
•
The MAC addresses of a computer in wired connection and wireless connection are different.
3.Modify the LAN IP address of the router.
Note:
Most TP-LINK routers use 192.168.0.1/192.168.1.1 as their default LAN IP address, it may be conflicting with the
IP range of your existent ADSL modem/router. If so, the router is not able to communicate with your modem
and cause you can’t access the Internet. To resolve the problem, we need to change the LAN IP address of the
router to avoid such conflict, for example, 192.168.2.1.
1 ) Visit http://tplinkwifi.net, and log in with the username and password you set
for the router;
2 ) Go to Advanced > Network > LAN;
