Technology Introduction Introduction to Broadband Router Technology A router is a device that forwards data packets from a source to a
destination. Routers forward data packets using IP addresses and not a
MAC address. A router will forward data from the Internet to a particular
computer on your LAN. The information that makes up the Internet gets moved around using
routers. When you click on a link on a web page, you send a request to a
-4- server to show you the next page. The information that is sent and
received from your computer is moved from your computer to the server
using routers. A router also determines the best route that your
information should follow to ensure that the information is delivered
properly. A router controls the amount of data that is sent through your network by
eliminating information that should not be there. This provides security for
the computers connected to your router, because computers from the
outside cannot access or send information directly to any computer on
your network. The router determines which computer the information
should be forwarded to and sends it. If the information is not intended for
any computer on your network, the data is discarded. This keeps any
unwanted or harmful information from accessing or damaging your
network. Introduction to Firewalls A firewall is a device that sits between your computer and the Internet that
prevents unauthorized access to or from your network. A firewall can be a
computer using firewall software or a special piece of hardware built
specifically to act as a firewall. In most circumstances, a firewall is used to
prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks or
corporate LANâ€™s and Intranets. A firewall watches all of the information moving to and from your network
and analyzes each piece of data. Each piece of data is checked against a
set of criteria that the administrator configures. If any data does not meet
the criteria, that data is blocked and discarded. If the data meets the
criteria, the data is passed through. This method is called packet filtering. A firewall can also run specific security functions based on the type of
application or type of port that is being used. For example, a firewall can
be configured to work with an FTP or Telnet server. Or a firewall can be
configured to work with specific UDP or TCP ports to allow certain
applications or games to work properly over the Internet. Introduction to Local Area Networking
Local Area Networking (LAN) is the term used when connecting several
computers together over a small area such as a building or group of
buildings. LANâ€™s can be connected over large areas. A collection of LANâ€™s
connected over a large area is called a Wide Area Network (WAN). A LAN consists of multiple computers connected to each other. There are
many types of media that can connect computers together. The most
common media is CAT5 cable (UTP or STP twisted pair wire.) On the
other hand, wireless networks do not use wires; instead they communicate
over radio waves. Each computer must have a Network Interface Card
(NIC), which communicates the data between computers. A NIC is usually
a 10Mbps network card, or 10/100Mbps network card, or a wireless
network card. Most networks use hardware devices such as hubs or switches that each
cable can be connected to in order to continue the connection between
computers. A hub simply takes any data arriving through each port and
forwards the data to all other ports. A switch is more sophisticated, in that
a switch can determine the destination port for a specific piece of data. A
switch minimizes network traffic overhead and speeds up the
communication over a network. Networks take some time in order to plan and implement correctly. There
are many ways to configure your network. You may want to take some
time to determine the best network set-up for your needs. Package Contents

1. Leave the device powered on, do not disconnect the power 2. Press the reset button and hold (use a paper-clip) 3. Keep the button pressed about 10 seconds 4. Release the button
The DI-604 will then automatically reboot itself.
-8- Getting Started Installation Location
The DI-604 can be positioned at any convenient place in your office or
house. No special wiring or cooling requirements are needed. However,
you should comply with the following guidelines:
Place the DI-604 on a flat horizontal plane. Keep away from any heating devices. Do not place in a dusty or wet environment.
The recommended operational specifications of the DI-604 are:
Temperature 32o F ~ 131o F
5 % ~ 90 %
In addition, remember to turn off the power, remove the power cord from the outlet, and keep your hands dry when you install the hardware. Network Settings
To use the DI-604 correctly, you have to properly configure the network
settings of your computers. The default IPaddress of the DI-604 is 192.168.0.1, and the default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. These
addresses can be changed as needed, but the default values are used in
this manual. If the TCP/IP environment of your computer has not yet been
configured, you can refer to Configuring Your PCs to Connect to the DI-604 to configure it. For example:
1. Configure your computer IP as 192.168.0.3, subnet mask as
255.255.255.0 and gateway as 192.168.0.1 Or more conveniently 2. Configure your computers to obtain TCP/IP settings automatically
from the DHCP server feature of the DI-604
Since the IP address of the DI-604 is 192.168.0.1, the IP address of your
computer must be 192.168.0.X (where â€śXâ€ť is a number between 2 and
254.) Each computer on your network must have a different IP address
within that range. The default gateway must be 192.168.0.1 (the IP
address of the DI-604).
-9- Configuring the DI-604 The DI-604 provides an embedded Web-based management utility
making it operating system independent. You can configure your DI-604
through the Netscape Communicator or Internet Explorer browser in MS
Windows, Macintosh, Linux or UNIX based platforms. All that is needed is
a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator version 4
and higher with Java Script enabled. Start-up and Log in Activate your web browser and type in the IP address of the DI-604 into
the Location (for Netscape) or Address (for IE) field and press â€śEnter.â€ť The
default IP address of the DI-604 is 192.168.0.1
For example: http://192.168.0.1
After the connection is established, the logon screen will pop up.
To log in as an administrator, enter the username of â€śadminâ€ť and the
password (there are no default password, leave it blank). Click the OK

Using the Configuration Menu Setup Wizard
The Setup Wizard page is the first page that appears when logging into
the web-based management interface. The Setup Wizard is a utility used
to quickly configure the DI-604. It will guide you through four quick and
basic steps to help you connect to your ISP. You will be connected to your
ISP (Internet Service Provider) and have Internet access within minutes.
WAN WAN is short for Wide Area Network. The WAN settings can be referred to as the Public settings. All IP information in the WAN settings are public IP addresses which are accessible on the Internet. The WAN settings consist of three options: Dynamic IP Address, Static IP Address, and PPPoE. Select the appropriate option and fill in the information needed to connect to your ISP.
-15- HOME > WAN > DYNAMIC IP Address
Choose Dynamic IP Address to obtain IP address information
automatically from your ISP. Select this option if your ISP does not give
you any IP numbers to use. This option is commonly used for Cable
modem services. Host Name:The Host Name field is optional but may be required by some
ISPs. The host name is the device name of the Broadband Router. MAC Address: The default MAC address is set to the WAN's physical
interface MAC address on the Broadband Router. You can use the "Clone
MAC Address" button to copy the MAC address of the Ethernet Card
installed by your ISP and replace the WAN MAC address with this MAC
address. It is not recommended that you change the default MAC address
unless required by your ISP.
-16- HOME > WAN > Static IP Address
Choose Static IP Address if all WAN IP information is provided to you by
your ISP. You will need to enter in the IP address, subnet mask, gateway
address, and DNS address(es) provided to you by your ISP. Each IP
address entered in the fields must be in the appropriate IP form, which are
four IP octets separated by a dot (x.x.x.x). The Router will not accept the
IP address if it is not in this format. IP Address: Public IP address provided by your ISP. Subnet Mask: Subnet mask provided by your ISP. ISP Gateway Address: Public IP address of your ISP that you are connecting to. Primary DNS Address: Primary DNS (Domain Name Server) IP provided by your ISP Secondary DNS Address: optional
-17- HOME > WAN > PPPOE
sure sure to
Choose PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet) if youâ€™re ISP uses PPPoE
connection. Your ISP will provide you with a username and password. This option
is typically used for DSL services. Select Dynamic PPPoE to obtain an IP address
automatically for your PPPoE connection. Select Static PPPoE to use a static IP
address for your PPPoE connection.
Dynamic PPPoE: PPPoE connection where you will receive an IP
address automatically from your ISP Static PPPoE: PPPoE connection where you have an assigned (static) IP
address User Name: Your PPPoE username provided by your ISP Password: Your PPPoE password provided by your ISP Retype Password: Re-enter PPPoE password Service Name: Enter the service name provided by your ISP. (optional) IP Address: This option is only available for Static PPPoE. Enter in the
static IP address for the PPPoE connection. Primary DNS Address: Primary DNS IP provided by your ISP Secondary DNS Address: optional
-18- Maximum Idle Time: The amount of time of inactivity before
disconnecting your PPPoE session. Enter a Maximum Idle Time (in
minutes) to define a maximum period of time for which the Internet
connection is maintained during inactivity. If the connection is inactive for
longer than the defined Maximum Idle Time, then the connection will be
dropped. Either set this to zero or enable Auto-reconnect to disable this
feature. MTU: MTU stands for Maximum Transmission Unit. For PPPoE
connections, you may need to change the MTU settings in order to work
correctly with your ISP. Auto-Reconnect: If enabled, the Broadband Router will automatically
connect to your ISP after your system is restarted or if the connection is
dropped. HOME > LAN
LAN is short for Local Area Network. This is considered your internal
network. These are the IP settings of the LAN interface for the DI-604.
These settings may be referred to as Private settings. You may change
the LAN IP address if needed. The LAN IP address is private to your
internal network and cannot be seen on the Internet. IP Address: The IP address of the LAN interface. The default IP address
is 192.168.0.1. Subnet Mask: The subnet mask of the LAN interface. The default subnet
mask is 255.255.255.0. Local Domain Name: This field is optional. Enter in the your local domain
-19- HOME > DHCP
DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DI-604 has a built-in
DHCP server. The DHCP Server will automatically assign an IP address to
the computers on the LAN/private network. Be sure to set your computers
to be DHCP clients by setting their TCP/IP settings to â€śObtain an IP
Address Automatically.â€ť When you turn your computers on, they will
automatically load the proper TCP/IP settings provided by the DI-604. The
DHCP Server will automatically allocate an unused IP address from the IP
address pool to the requesting computer. You must specify the starting
and ending address of the IP address pool.
Starting IP Address: The starting IP address for the DHCP serverâ€™s IP assignment. Ending IP Address: The ending IP address for the DHCP serverâ€™s IP assignment. Lease Time: The length of time for the IP lease.
-20- ADVANCED > VIRTUAL SERVER
The DI-604 can be configured as a virtual server so that remote users
accessing Web or FTP services via the public IP address can be
automatically redirected to local servers in the LAN network. The DI-604 firewall feature filters out unrecognized packets to protect your
LAN network so all computers networked with the DI-604 are invisible to
the outside world. If you wish, you can make some of the LAN computers
accessible from the Internet by enabling Virtual Server. Depending on the
requested service, the DI-604 redirects the external service request to the
appropriate server within the LAN network.
The DI-604 is also capable of port-redirection meaning incoming traffic to
a particular port may be redirected to a different port on the server
Each virtual service that is created will be listed at the bottom of the
screen in the Virtual Servers List. There are already pre-defined virtual
services already in the table. You may use them by enabling them and
assigning the server IP to use that particular virtual service.
Name: The name referencing the virtual service. Private IP: The server computer in the LAN network that will be providing the virtual services. Private Port: The port number of the service used by the Private IP computer. Protocol Type: The protocol used for the virtual service. Public Port: The port number on the WAN side that will be used to access the virtual service. Schedule: The schedule of time when the virtual service will be enabled. The schedule may be set to Always, which will allow the particular service to always be enabled. If it is set to Time, select the time frame for the service to be enabled. If the system time is outside of the scheduled time, the service will we disabled.
Example #1: If you have a Web server that you wanted Internet users to access at all times, you would need to enable it. Web (HTTP) server is on LAN computer 192.168.0.25. HTTP uses port 80, TCP.
Name: Web Server Private IP: 192.168.0.25 Protocol Type: TCP Private Port: 80 Public Port: 80 Schedule: always
Click on this icon to edit the virtual service.
Click on this icon to delete the virtual service.
If you have an FTP server that you wanted Internet users to access by
WAN port 2100 and only during the weekends, you would need to enable
it as such. FTP server is on LAN computer 192.168.0.30. FTP uses port
Name: FTP Server Private IP: 192.168.0.30 Protocol Type: TCP Private Port: 21 Public Port: 2100 Schedule: From: 01:00AM to 01:00AM, Sat to Sun
All Internet users who want to access this FTP Server must connect to it from port
2100. This is an example of port redirection and can be useful in cases where
there are many of the same servers on the LAN network.
ADVANCED > APPLICATIONS
-23- Some applications require multiple connections, such as Internet gaming,
video conferencing, Internet telephony and others. These applications
have difficulties working through NAT (Network Address Translation).
Special Applications makes some of these applications work with the
DI-604. If you need to run applications that require multiple connections,
specify the port normally associated with an application in the "Trigger
Port" field, select the protocol type as TCP or UDP, then enter the public
ports associated with the trigger port to open them for inbound traffic.
The DI-604 provides some predefined applications in the table on the
bottom of the web page. Select the application you want to use and
enable it. Note! Only one PC can use each Special Application tunnel. Trigger Name: This is the name referencing the special application. Trigger Port: This is the port used to trigger the application. It can be
either a single port or a range of ports. Trigger Type: This is the protocol used to trigger the special application. Public Port: This is the port number on the WAN side that will be used to
access the application. You may define a single port or a range of ports.
You can use a comma to add multiple ports or port ranges. Public Type: This is the protocol used for the special application.
-24- ADVANCED > FILTERS > IP FILTERS Filters
Filters are used to deny or allow LAN computers from accessing the Internet. The
DI-604 can be setup to deny internal computers by their IP or MAC addresses.
The DI-604 can also block users from accessing restricted web sites. IP Filters Use IP Filters to deny LAN IP addresses from accessing the Internet. You can
deny specific port numbers or all ports for the specific IP address. IP: The IP address of the LAN computer that will be denied access to the Internet. Port: The single port or port range that will be denied access to the Internet. Schedule: This is the schedule of time when the IP Filter will be enabled.
-25- ADVANCED > FILTERS > MAC FILTERS Use MAC Filters to allow or deny LAN computers by their MAC
addresses from accessing the Internet. You can either manually add a
MAC address or select the MAC address from the list of clients that are
currently connected to the Broadband Router.
-26- ADVANCED > FILTERS > URL BLOCKING URL Blocking is used to deny LAN computers from accessing specific
web sites by its URL. A URL is a specially formatted text string that
defines a location on the Internet. If any part of the URL contains the
blocked word, the site will not be accessible and the web page will not
-27- ADVANCED > FILTERS > DOMAIN BLOCKING Domain Blocking is used to allow or deny LAN computers from
accessing specific domains on the Internet. Domain blocking will deny all
requests to a specific domain such as http and ftp. It can also allow
computers to access specific sites and deny all other sites.
-28- ADVANCED > FILTERS > FIREWALL
Firewall Rules is an advance feature used to deny or allow traffic from
passing through the Broadband Router. It works in the same way as IP
Filters with additional settings. You can create more detailed access rules
for the DI-604. When virtual services are created and enabled, it will also
display in Firewall Rules. Firewall Rules contains all network firewall rules
pertaining to IP (Internet Protocol).
In the Firewall Rules List at the bottom of the screen, the priorities of the
rules are from top (the highest priority) to the bottom (the lowest priority.)
Note:The DI-604 MAC Address filtering rules have precedence over the Firewall Rules.
-29- ADVANCED > DMZ
If you have a client PC that cannot run Internet applications properly from behind the DI-604, then you can set the client up to unrestricted Internet access. It allows a computer to be exposed to the Internet. This feature is useful for gaming purposes. Enter the IP address of the internal computer that will be the DMZ host. Adding a client to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) may expose your local network to a variety of security risks, so only use this option as a last resort.
-30- TOOLS > ADMIN
At this page, the DI-604 administrator can change the system password.
There are two accounts that can access the Broadband Routerâ€™s
Web-Management interface. They are admin and user. Admin has
read/write access while user has read-only access. User can only view
the settings but cannot make any changes.
Remote Management allows the DI-604 to be configured from the Internet
by a web browser. A username and password is still required to access
the Web-Management interface. In general, only a member of your
network can browse the built-in web pages to perform â€śAdministratorâ€ť
tasks. This feature enables you to perform â€śAdministratorâ€ť tasks from the
remote (Internet) host.
IP Address: Internet IP address of the computer that has access to the Broadband Router. If the IP address is set to * (star). This allows any Internet IP address to access the Broadband Router. It is not
-31- recommended that you set the IP address to * (star), because this allows any Internet IP address to access the Broadband Router, which could result in a loss of security for your network.If you elect to enable Remote Management, enter the IP Address of your remote location.
Port: The port number used to access the Broadband Router. (Select from the pull-down menu.) Example: http://x.x.x.x:8080 where x.x.x.x is the WAN IP address of the Broadband Router and 8080 is the port used for the Web-Management interface. TOOLS > TIME Time
The system time is the time used by the DI-604 for scheduling services.
You can manually set the time or connect to a NTP (Network Time
Protocol) server. If an NTP server is set, you will only need to set the time
zone. If you manually set the time, you may also set Daylight Saving dates
and the system time will automatically adjust on those dates.
TOOLS > SYSTEM
The current system settings can be saved as a file onto the local hard
drive. The saved file or any other saved setting file can be loaded back on
the Broadband Router. To reload a system settings file, click on Browse to
browse the local hard drive and locate the system file to be used. You may
also reset the Broadband Router back to factory settings by clicking on
-33- TOOLS > FIRMWARE Firmware Upgrade
You can upgrade the firmware of the Broadband Router at this page. Make
sure the firmware you want to use is on the local hard drive of the
computer. Click on Browse to browse the local hard drive and locate the
firmware to be used for the update. Please check the D-Link support site
for firmware updates at http://support.dlink.com.
-34- TOOLS > MISC.
These are additional tools and features of the Broadband Router. Ping Test
This useful diagnostic utility can be used to check if a computer is on the
Internet. It sends ping packets and listens for replies from the specific
host. Restart Device
If for any reason the Broadband Router is not responding correctly, you
may want to restart the Broadband Router. Block WAN Ping
When you â€śBlock WAN Pingâ€ť, you are causing the public WAN IP address
-35- on the Broadband Router to not respond to ping commands. Pinging
public WAN IP addresses is a common method used by hackers to test
whether your WAN IP address is valid. Discard PING from WAN side: By enabling this option, the DI-604 will not reply to ping (ICMP) request packets from the Internet. VPN Pass-Through
The Broadband Router supports VPN (Virtual Private Network)
pass-through for both PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) and IPSec
(IP Security). Once VPN pass-through is enabled, there is no need to
open up virtual services. Multiple VPN connections can be made through
the Broadband Router. This is useful when you have many VPN clients on
the LAN network.
STATUS > DEVICE INFORMATION This page displays the current information for the Broadband Router. It will
-36- display the WAN, LAN, and MAC address information. If your WAN connection is set up for Dynamic IP address, there will be a Release button and Renew button. Use Release to disconnect from your ISP and use Renew to connect to your ISP. If your WAN connection is set up for PPPoE, there will be a Connect button and Disconnect button. Use Disconnect to drop the PPPoE connection and use Connect to establish the PPPoE connection.

After clicking OK, windows might ask you to restart the PC. Click Yes.
CONFIRM YOUR PCâ€™S IP CONFIGURATION
There are two tools which are great for finding out a computerâ€™s IP configuration: MAC address and default gateway. WINIPCFG (for Windows 95/98)
Inside the windows 95/98 Start button, select Run and type winipcfg. In the example below this computer has an IP address of 192.168.0.100 and the default gateway is 192.168.0.1. The default gateway should be the network device IP address. The MAC address in windows 95/98 is called the Adapter Address.
NOTE: You can also type winipcfg in the DOS command prompt.
IPCONFIG (for Windows 2000/NT/XP)
At the command prompt type IPCONFIG and press Enter. Your PC IP information will be displayed as shown below.
-42- Assigning a Static IP Address Note: Residential Gateways/Broadband Routers will automatically assign
IP Addresses to the computers on the network, using DHCP (Dynamic
Host Configuration Protocol) technology. If you are using a DHCP-capable
Gateway/Router you will not need to assign Static IP Addresses.
If you are not using a DHCP capable Gateway/Router, or you need to
assign a Static IP Address, please follow these instructions:
Go to START Double-click on Control Panel
Double-click on Network Connections
-43- Right-click on Local Area Connections.
Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
-44- Select Use the following IP address in the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
