Connect one end of an Ethernet network cable to one of the numbered ports on the back of the Router (see Figure B). Connect the other end to an Ethernet port on a network device, e.g., a PC, print server, hub, or switch. Repeat this step to connect more PCs or other network devices to the Router. C 2 Connect the Router B In Step 2, you will need the setup instructions provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). If you do not have this information, then contact your ISP before proceeding. Connect the included AC power cable to the Router’s Power port on the side of the Router, as shown in Figure E, and then plug the other end of the power cable into an electrical outlet. The System LED on the front panel will light up as soon as the power adapter is connected properly. E The instructions from your ISP tell you how to set up your PC for Internet access. Because you are now using the Router to share Internet access among several computers, you will use the setup information to configure the Router instead of your PC. NOTE:: Make sure your PC’s Ethernet adapter is set to obtain an IP address automatically. For more information, refer to Windows Help. A Connect your cable or DSL modem’s Ethernet cable to the Router’s Internet port. If using the DMZ/Internet port, connect a second cable to it, and the other end to the network device , e.g., modem or public server. See Figure C. Internet B Power on the cable or DSL modem and the other network device if using one. DMZ/Internet C Configure the Router C A Open your PC’s web browser. Enter http://192.168.1.1 (the Router’s default local IP address) in the web browser’s Address field. Then press the Enter key. A screen will appear and ask you for a User Name and Password.

If requested by your ISP (usually cable ISPs), complete these two fields. Choose the function of the DMZ/Internet (WAN2) port. If the port will be used as a second Internet port, select Dual WAN. If the port will be used as a DMZ port, select DMZ. D In the drop-down menus for WAN1 and WAN2, the WAN Connection Type setting features four Internet connection types: obtain an IP automatically, Static IP, PPPoE, and PPTP. Depending on which connection type you select, the features available on the Network page of the Setup screen will differ. Proceed to the instructions for the connection type you are using.

You need to enter at least one DNS address. d Click the Save Settings button, and go to Step G. a b If your ISP says that you are connecting through DHCP or a dynamic IP address from your ISP, then select Obtain an IP automatically as the WAN Connection Type. If you also select Use the Following DNS Server Addresses, enter a specific DNS Server IP Address. F2 b Enter the User Name and Password provided by your ISP. c If you select Connect on Demand, the PPPoE connection will be disconnected if it has been idle for a period longer than the Max Idle Time setting. d If you select Keep Alive, the Router will keep the connection alive by sending out a few data packets at the Redial Period, so your Internet service thinks that the connection is still active. Click the Save Settings button, and go to Step G. 2 Static IP a If your ISP says that you are connecting through a static or fixed IP address from your ISP, then select Static IP as the WAN Connection Type. Enter the WAN IP Address, Subnet Mask Default Gateway PPTP is a service used in Europe and Israel only. IF you are using a PPTP connection, check with your ISP for the necessary setup information. When you are finished, go to Step G. F3 e G If your ISP says that you are connecting through PPPoE or if you normally enter a user name and password to access the Internet, then select PPPoE as the WAN Connection Type. b Go to Step G. 4 PPTP 3 PPPoE 1 Obtain an IP Automatically a f Address, and DNS Server provided by your ISP.
