4.3 WAN

4.3.1 Internet Connection

The Internet Connection screen allows you to configure the settings of various WAN connection types.


To configure the WAN connection settings:

1. From the navigation panel, go to Advanced Settings > WAN

> Internet Connection tab.

2. Configure the following settings below. When done, click

Apply .

• WAN Connection Type : Choose your Internet Service Provider type. The choices are Automatic IP , PPPoE , PPTP , L2TP or fixed IP . Consult your ISP if the router is unable to obtain a valid IP address or if you are unsure the WAN connection type.

• Enable WAN : Select Yes to allow the router Internet access.

Select No to disable Internet access.

• Enable NAT : NAT (Network Address Translation) is a system where one public IP (WAN IP) is used to provide Internet access to network clients with a private IP address in a LAN.

The private IP address of each network client is saved in a NAT table and is used to route incoming data packets.

• Enable UPnP : UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) allows several devices (such as routers, televisions, stereo systems, game consoles, and cellular phone), to be controlled via an IP-based network with or without a central control through a gateway.

UPnP connects PCs of all form factors, providing a seamless network for remote configuration and data transfer. Using

UPnP, a new network device is discovered automatically.

Once connected to the network, devices can be remotely configured to support P2P applications, interactive gaming, video conferencing, and web or proxy servers. Unlike Port forwarding, which involves manually configuring port settings, UPnP automatically configures the router to accept incoming connections and direct requests to a specific PC on the local network.

• Connect to DNS Server : Allows this router to get the DNS

IP address from the ISP automatically. A DNS is a host on the Internet that translates Internet names to numeric IP addresses.

• Authentication : This item may be specified by some ISPs.

Check with your ISP and fill them in if required.

• Host Name : This field allows you to provide a host name for your router. It is usually a special requirement from your ISP.

If your ISP assigned a host name to your computer, enter the host name here.



• MAC Address : MAC (Media Access Control) address is a unique identifier for your networking device. Some ISPs monitor the MAC address of networking devices that connect to their service and reject any unrecognized device that attempt to connect. To avoid connection issues due to an unregistered MAC address, you can:

• Contact your ISP and update the MAC address associated with your ISP service.

• Clone or change the MAC address of the ASUS wireless router to match the MAC address of the previous networking device recognized by the ISP.
