Internet Connection Settings

  1. Select your Internet connection type and then enter the appropriate information for the connection:

    Note: If you do not know what type of Internet connection you have, contact your Internet Service Provider.

  1. If your ISP uses Point-to-Point Tunneling (PPTP), after you have configured your Internet Connection in Step 1, select My ISP uses a PPTP connection and enter the Domain or IP address of your PPTP server in the Server field, and the User name and Password from your ISP. If your ISP uses a specific authentication method, either select or deselect the appropriate checkboxes.

  2. If your ISP requires you to use a host name, enter it in Host Name.

  3. If your ISP requires a specific MAC address for the Internet connection, you will need to change the MAC address of the router. Either select the MAC address from the list or enter it manually in the Router field.

  4. Remote Access allows any host on the entire WAN network to connect to the router's configuration pages. By default, only devices that are connected to the router via an Ethernet cable at a LAN port can access the router's configuration pages. To enable Remote Access, select Allow access to this router from the Internet. By default, the port "8080" is assigned. If you wish to use another port, enter the port number.

  5. To enable remote access to the printer attached to the router from outside the LAN, select Allow access to the print server from the Internet.

Note: You need to click Save to save all your new settings and reboot the router after you have completed all your changes.


Static Routes

If you make a physical connection from the router's WAN port to an existing network or networks, you may need to establish Static Routes. This will allow the router to use its own network address, which is different from the network to which it is connected. This will also allow the router to connect to specific networks that already exist on the WAN side.

For Static Routes on your WAN, you must use values within the same subnets as your Internet connection.

Note: The default LAN IP address of the router is and default Subnet Mask is

  1. Enter the IP address of the network for this specific router in the IP address field.

  2. Enter the Subnet mask of the network for this specific router in the Subnet mask field.

  3. Enter the Gateway of the network for this specific router in the Gateway field.

  4. Enter the number of routers that this router must connect through in order to connect to the other network in the Hops field.

    The number of hops is determined by how many routers are between your router and the respective network.

    : If there is another router connected to the router 's WAN port, you would enter 1 for the number of hops between the router's WAN port and any client connected to the second router.

  5. Click Add.


Dynamic DNS

A DNS (Domain Name Service) resolves an Internet address such as into an IP address. A dynamic DNS service allows you to assign a Web name like to your gateway, making it accessible from the Internet without having to know the gateway's IP address assigned by the service provider.

In this page, you can set parameters that will allow the domain name services to find your gateway. You would use this to bypass the dynamic nature of WAN IP addressing, to have a consistent host name accessible from the Internet.

Note: You will need dynamic DNS service provided by a third party to use this feature.

To configure Dynamic DNS on your router:

  1. Select your DNS provider. You can register at,,, and for no charge.

  2. Enter your dynamic DNS settings, including Host name, User name and Password, given to you by the DNS provider. Click Add when you're done.

To remove a dynamic DNS assignment, click the Delete button next to the DNS assignment.


Note: You need to click Save to save all your new settings and reboot the router after you have completed all your changes.
