home network with convenient Internet access, rapid download speeds, improved network efficiency and enhanced security.
If you would like to set up the device quickly in order to verify that the ADSL connection to the WAN (wide area network) is working properly, please read the Quick Installation Guide included in the DSL-604+ package.
Some basic information about Ethernet and Wireless LAN, networking devices, gateway routers and the TCP/IP
suite of protocols is provided in the text of this guide. If you would like to learn more about home or small office networking D-Link has tutorials available at:
http://www.dlink.com/learnbasic/ and http://www.dlink.com/learnbasic/homenetwork/ Terminology
This document uses the terms â€śRouterâ€ť (first letter upper case) to refer specifically to the DSL-604+ Router, and
â€śrouterâ€ť (first letter lower case) to refer to all such devices including the DSL-604+. ADSL service is provided by different types of businesses including telephone service providers, Internet service providers and other businesses that provide computer network and telecommunications services. The term â€śservice providerâ€ť is used in this guide to refer to any service that sells or leases DSL services and equipment. Guide Overview Chapter 1 Introduction: A description of the Router and its features. A brief introduction to ADSL and Wireless LAN technologies and standards are listed. Chapter 2 Hardware Installation: Discusses how to connect the Router to an Ethernet LAN. Chapter 3 First Time Setup: Provides information on how to configure the Router and establish the ADSL connection using the web-based manager. Chapter 4 Web-based Management Guide: Describes how to use the web-based manager and the management options available. Appendix A Technical Specifications: Lists the technical specifications of the Router, including standards compliance. Before You Start
Please read and make sure you understand all the prerequisites for proper installation of your new Router. Have all the necessary information and equipment on hand before beginning the installation. Installation Overview
The procedure to install the Router can be described in general terms in the following steps:
1. Gather information and equipment needed to install the device. Before you begin the actual installation
make sure you have all the necessary information and equipment.
2. Install the hardware, that is, connect the cables (Ethernet and telephone) to the device and connect the
power adapter to the device and a power source.
3. Check the IP settings on your computer and change them if necessary so the computer can access the
web-based software built used to configure the Router
4. Use the web-based management software to configure the device to suit the requirements of your ADSL
account and to communicate with 802.11b wireless devices.
vii DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Requirements for Installation
To install and use the Router you need a computer equipped with an Ethernet port (such as an Ethernet NIC) and
a web browser. To establish the WAN connection to your ISPâ€™s network, it will be necessary for most users to make some changes to the WAN configuration of the Router. This change may only be to supply a user name and password for your ISP account (see below). Low Pass Filters
Since ADSL and telephone services share the same copper wiring to carry their respective signals, a filtering
mechanism may be necessary to avoid signal interference on the line. A low pass filter device may be required for each telephone that shares the line with the ADSL line. Alternatively, it may be necessary only to install such a device at or near the point where the Router connects to the telephone line. These filters are easy to install passive devices that connect to the ADSL device and/or telephone using standard telephone cable. Ask your service provider for more information about the use of low pass filters with your installation. Operating System
The Router uses an HTML-based web interface for setup and management. The web configuration manager may be accessed using any operating system capable of running web browser software. Web Browser
Any common web browser can be used to configure the Router using the web configuration management
Any computer that uses the Router must be able to connect to it through the Ethernet port on the Router. This connection is an Ethernet connection and therefore requires that your computer be equipped with an Ethernet port as well. Most notebook computers are now sold with an Ethernet port already installed. Likewise, most fully assembled desktop computers come with an Ethernet NIC adapter as standard equipment. If your computer does
not have an Ethernet port, you must install an Ethernet NIC adapter before you can use the Router. If you must install an adapter, follow the installation instructions that come with the Ethernet NIC adapter. Additional Software
It may be necessary to install software on your computer that enables the computer to access the Internet.
Additional software must be installed if you are using what is called a â€śbridgedâ€ť connection. For a bridged connection, the information needed to make and maintain the Internet connection is stored on your computer, not in the Router. Various terms are to describe a bridged ADSL connection including the terms â€śBridge LLVâ€ť and â€śBridge VC Muxâ€ť used in this guide.
If your ADSL service is delivered through a PPP (Point to Point Protocol) connection, the information needed to
establish and maintain the Internet connection is stored in the Router. In this case, it is not necessary to install software on your computer. Account Information (User Name and Password)
Most users will need to supply a user name and password used to access the service providerâ€™s network (and
ultimately, the Internet). This information is stored either in the Routerâ€™s memory or on your computer depending on the type of ADSL connection (encapsulation method) you have. ISP ACCOUNT INFORMATION User Name: Password:
viii DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide About IPoA Connections (RFC 1577)
IP over ATM connections may require global IP settings for the device. Your service provider will give you IP
settings information if needed. Some IPoA connections function like peer-to-peer connections and therefore do not require IP settings on the WAN interface. Additional PVC Settings
If you are using multiple virtual connections it will be necessary to provide additional VPI and VCI values for
the device. These numbers define a unique route used on the ATM backbone of the larger telecommunications network. Setting up these virtual connections must be coordinated with your ISP or telephone services provider. Typically multiple PVCs are used to form private connections to remote private networks or used for public web servers. Chapter 4 contains instruction on how to set up additional PVCs for accounts using more than one virtual connection. 802.11b Wireless LAN Configuration
All the 802.11b wireless LAN settings are configured on a single page using the web-based manager. For basic
wireless communication you need to decide what channel to use and what SSID to assign. These two settings must be the same for any wireless workstations or other wireless access point that communicate with the DSL- 604+ through the wireless interface.
Security for wireless communication can be accomplished using two methods. The DSL-604+ is supports WEP
encryption at the 64 bit (also called 40 bit) or 128 bit level. Wireless access can be controlled by selecting MAC addresses that are allowed to associate with the device. Please read the section on Wireless Configuration in the Web-based Management Guide (Chapter 4). Packing List

ix DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide 1 Introduction
This chapter describes the Router and it features and includes brief introduction to ADSL and 802.11b Wireless LAN. Front and rear panel diagrams are used to illustrate the LED indicators and cable connections. Router Description and Operation
The DSL-604+ ADSL Router is designed to provide a simple, cost-effective and secure ADSL Internet connection for wired (Ethernet) and wireless (802.11b) stations on your network. The DSL-604+ combines high- speed ADSL connection technology, TCP/IP routing and 802.11b wireless connectivity in one compact unit.
The Router is easy to install and use. The DSL-604+ connects to an Ethernet LAN via a standard Ethernet
10BASE-T interface using RJ-45 connectors. The ADSL connection is made using ordinary twisted-pair telephone line with standard RJ-11 connectors. This arrangement allows wired and wireless workstations to share network resources and connect to the Internet using a single WAN interface and IP address.
The Router supports transparent bridging or it can be used for IP packet routing over the Internet. Cost saving
features of the Router such as NAT (Network Address Translator) and DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) improve efficiency and security. The advanced security enhancements, packet filtering and port redirection, can help protect your network from potentially devastating intrusions by malicious agents from outside your network.
All the 802.11b wireless settings for the Router are entered on a single page in the web manager. Security for the wireless interface comes in two forms, WEP Encryption and MAC Address Control. Product Features
The DSL-604+ ADSL Router utilizes the latest ADSL enhancements and router technologies to provide a robust Internet gateway suitable for most small to medium sized offices. PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) Security The DSL-604+ ADSL Router supports PAP (Password Authentication Protocol) and CHAP (Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol) for PPP connections. DHCP Support (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) automatically and dynamically assigns al LAN IP settings to
each host on your network. This eliminates the need to reconfigure every host whenever changes in network topology occur. Network Address Translation (NAT) For small office environments, the DSL-604+ allows multiple users on the LAN to access the Internet
concurrently through a single Internet account. This provides Internet access to everyone in the office for the price of a single user. NAT improves network security in effect by hiding the private network behind one global and visible IP address. NAT address mapping can also be used to link two IP domains via a LAN-to-LAN connection. TCP/IP (Transfer Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) The DSL-604+ supports TCP/IP protocol, the language used for the Internet. It is compatible with access servers manufactured by major vendors. RIP-1/RIP-2 The DSL-604+ supports both RIP-1 and RIP-2 exchanges with other routers. Using both versions lets the Router to communicate with all RIP enabled devices.
1 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Static Routing This allows you to select a data path to a particular network destination that will remain in the routing table and
never â€śage outâ€ť. If you wish to define a specific route that will always be used for data traffic from your LAN to a specific destination within your LAN (for example to another router or a server) or outside your network (to a ISP defined default gateway for instance). Default Routing This allows you to choose a default path for incoming data packets for which the destination address is unknown. This is particularly useful when if the Router functions as the sole connection to the Internet. ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) The DSL-604+ supports Bridged Ethernet over ATM (RFC1483), IP over ATM (RFC1577) and PPP over ATM (RFC 2364). The Router can support up to eight Virtual Circuit Connections (VCCs). Precise ATM Traffic Shaping Traffic shaping is a method of controlling the flow rate of ATM data cells. This function helps to establish the Quality of Service for ATM data transfer. G.hs (Auto-handshake) This allows the Router to automatically choose either the G.lite or G.dmt ADSL connection standards. High Performance Very high rates of data transfer are possible with the Router. Up to 8 Mbps downstream bit rate using the G.dmt. Full Network Management The DSL-604+ incorporates SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) support for web-based management and text-based network management via an RS-232 or Telnet connection. Telnet Connection The Telnet enables a network manager to access the Routerâ€™s management software remotely. Easy Installation The DSL-604+ uses a web-based graphical user interface program for convenient management access and easy set up. Any common web browser software can be used to manage the Router.

4 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Introduction to 802.11b Wireless
The IEEE 802.11b standard is the most widely used standard for wireless LANs today. A wireless LAN (WLAN)
is a cellular computer network that transmits data using radio signals instead of cables. WLAN technology is commonly used on home, small office and large corporate networks. WLAN devices have a high degree of mobility and flexibility that allow network to be quickly set up or dismantled and allow them to roam freely throughout the network.
Wireless LAN users can use the same network applications used on an Ethernet LAN. 802.11b adapter cards
used on laptop and desktop computers support the same protocols as Ethernet adapter cards. For most users, there is no functional difference between a computer attached to a wired Ethernet LAN or a mobile 802.11b workstation except that hardware is not physically attached to the network. For most networks however, it may be desirable for mobile network devices to be able to link to the wired Ethernet LAN to use shared resources such as servers, printers or an Internet connection. The DSL-604+ unites Ethernet and 802.11b wireless private networks with an Internet connection. The DSL-604+ supports data rates of up to 22 Mbps for wireless operation when used in conjunction with other D-Link AirPlus devices.
D-Link Wireless LAN devices have earned a reputation for reliability, flexibility and value.D-Link offers a full range of IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.1a WLAN products including:
u 802.11b and 802.11a Wireless Adapter cards for notebook computers
u 802.11b and 802.11a Wireless PCI cards for desktop computers u 802.11b and 802.11a Wireless Access Points u Dual-band (802.11b plus 802.11a) Wireless Access Points
u 802.11b and 802.11a Wireless Home Gateways u 802.11b and 802.11a Wireless ADSL Routers Wireless LAN Basics
Some basic understanding of 802.11b wireless technology and terminology when is useful when you are setting
up the Router or any wireless access point. If you are not familiar with wireless networks please take a few minutes to learn the basics. Radio Transmission
WLAN devices use electromagnetic waves within a broad, unlicensed range of the radio spectrum to transmit
and receive radio signals. When a wireless access point is present, it becomes a base station for the WLAN nodes in its broadcast range. WLAN nodes transmit digital data using FM (frequency modulation) radio signals. WLAN devices generate a carrier wave and modulate this signal using various techniques. In this way, digital data can then be superimposed onto the carrier signal. This radio signal carries data to WLAN devices within range of the transmitting device. The antennae of WLAN devices listen for and receive the signal. The signal is demodulated and the transmitted data extracted. The transmission method used by the access point is called Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and operates in a range of the radio spectrum between 2.4GHz and 2.5GHz for transmission. DSSS is preferred method used on many 802.11b devices. Range
Range should not be a problem in most homes or small offices. If you experience low or no signal strength in
some areas, consider positioning the device in a location between the WLAN devices maintaining a roughly equal straight-line distance to all devices that need to access the Router through the wireless interface. Adding more 802.11b access points to rooms where the signal is weak can improve signal strength. Read the section about placement of the Router titled Location in the next chapter, Hardware Installation, for more information. SSID
Wireless networks use an SSID (Service Set Identifier) to allow wireless devices to roam within the range of the network. Wireless devices that wish to communicate with each other must use the same SSID. Several access
5 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide
points can be set up using the same SSID so that wireless stations can move from one location to another without losing connection to the wireless network.
The DSL-604+ operates in Infrastructure mode. It controls network access on the wireless interface in its broadcast area. It will allow access to the wireless network to devices using the correct SSID after a negotiation process takes place. The DSL-604+ broadcasts its SSID so that any wireless station in range can learn the SSID
and ask permission to associate with it. Many wireless adapters are able to survey or scan the wireless environment for access points. An access point in Infrastructure mode allows wireless devices to survey that network and select an access point with which to associate.
It is important to understand the difference between the SSID and a BSSID (Basic Service Set Identifier) or
Preferred BSSID. The Preferred BSSID is defined by wireless stations to designate an access point used for access to the wireless network. The Preferred BSSID is the MAC address of the access point. Therefore any wireless stations (wireless clients) that use the DSL-604+ through the wireless interface must use its MAC address for the Preferred BSSID. A wireless stations that scans the network for available access points may present the user with a choice of access point identified by their BSSID. ADSL Technology
Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) is a broadband technology that utilizes ordinary copper telephone
lines to enable high-speed digital data transmission and interactive multimedia applications for business and residential customers.
ADSL greatly increases the signal carrying capacity of copper telephone lines without interfering with regular telephone services for faster downloads and more reliable connectivity. ADSL devices make it possible to enjoy benefits such as high-speed Internet access without experiencing any loss of quality or disruption of voice/fax telephone capabilities.
ADSL provides a dedicated service over a single telephone line operating at speeds of up to 8 Mbps downstream
and up to 640 Kbps upstream, depending on local telephone line conditions. A secure point-to-point connection is established between the user and the central office of the service provider.
D-Link ADSL devices incorporate the recommendations of the ADSL Forum regarding framing, data format, and upper layer protocols.
6 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide 2 Hardware Installation
The DSL-604+ functions on three separate networks, a wired Ethernet LAN, a wireless LAN and a wired ADSL
WAN. Placement of the Router must take into account the fact that it is connected to these three networks with three types of media. Ethernet cables connect the Router to computers and network devices and the ADSL line connects it to a wall socket. In addition, the device must be near an AC wall outlet for power. How to accommodate these wired connections is often not a complicated matter. However, the added dimension of wireless communication does complicate the decision of Router placement. Location
Many environmental factors can affect the effective wireless function of the DSL-604+. If this is your first time setting up a wireless network device, read and consider the points listed below. The access point can be placed on a shelf or desktop, ideally you should be able to see the LED indicators on the front if you need to view them for troubleshooting.
Designed to go up to 100 meters indoors and up to 300 meters outdoors, Wireless LAN lets you access your
network from anywhere you want. However, the number of walls, ceilings, or other objects that the wireless signals must pass through can limit signal range. Typical ranges vary depending on the types of materials and background RF noise in your home or business. To range and signal strength, use these basic guidelines:
1. Keep the number of walls and ceilings to a minimum:
The signal emitted from Wireless LAN devices can penetrate through ceilings and walls. However, each wall or ceiling can reduce the range Wireless LAN devices from 1 to 30M. Position your wireless devices so that the number of walls or ceilings obstructing the signal path is minimized.
2. Consider the direct line between access points and workstations: A wall that is 0.5 meters thick, at a
45-degree angle appears to be almost 1 meter thick. At a 2-degree angle, it is over 14 meters thick. Be careful to position access points and client adapters so the signal can travel straight through (90Âş angle) a wall or ceiling for better reception.
3. Building Materials make a difference: Buildings constructed using metal framing or doors can reduce
effective range of the device. If possible, position wireless devices so that their signal can pass through drywall or open doorways, avoid positioning them so that their signal must pass through metallic materials. Poured concrete walls are reinforced with steel while cinderblock walls generally have little or no structural steel.
4. Position the antennas for best reception. Play around with the antenna position to see if signal
strength improves. Some adapters or access points allow the user to judge the strength of the signal.
5. Keep your product away (at least 1-2 meters) from electrical devices:
Position wireless devices away from electrical devices that generate RF noise such as microwave ovens, monitors, electric motors, etc.
7 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Network Connection
Complete the connection to the wired networks through the ADSL port and the Ethernet port on the back of the Router. See the diagram on page 4. Connect ADSL Line
Use the ADSL cable included with the Router to connect it to a telephone wall socket. Plug one end of the cable into the ADSL port (RJ-11 receptacle) on the rear panel of the Router and insert the other end into the RJ-11 wall socket. If you are using a low pass filter device, follow the instructions included with the device or given to you by your service provider. The ADSL connection represents the WAN interface. It is the physical link to the ISPâ€™s network backbone and ultimately to the Internet. Connect Router to Ethernet
The Router connects to directly to Ethernet workstation or to an Ethernet LAN. The RJ-45 ports on the Router
are crossed ports (MDI-X) and can be connected to an Ethernet adapter with a straight-through (MDI-II) port using normal straight-through Ethernet cable. Use crossed cable when connecting the Router to a crossed port (MDI-X) on a switch or hub. Use straight-through cable when connecting it to an uplink (MDI-II) port on a hub or switch. A valid connection is indicated if the Ethernet Link LED indicator(s) on the front panel shine steady green.
The rules governing Ethernet cable lengths apply to the four Ethernet ports. Be sure that the cable connecting the Router to other Ethernet devices does not exceed 100 meters. Connect the Power
Insert the AC Power Adapter cord into the power receptacle located on the rear panel of the Router and plug the adapter into a nearby power source. You should see the Power LED indicator light up and remain lit. Factory Reset Button
The Router may be reset to the original factory default settings by depressing the reset button for a few seconds
while the device is powered on. Use a ballpoint or paperclip to push down the reset button. Remember that this will wipe out any settings stored in flash memory including IP settings. The factory default IP address of the Router is 192.168.0.1 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.
8 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide 3 Configuring the Router for the First Time
The first time you setup the Router it is recommended that you configure the WAN connection using a single
computer making sure that both the computer and the Router are not connected to the LAN. Once the WAN connection is functioning properly you may continue change settings to suit your network. This chapter is only concerned with settings up the WAN connection. The following chapter, Web-based Management Guide, describes the various menus used to configure and monitor the Router including how to change IP settings, DHCP server setup and 802.11b wireless configuration. Wan Configuration Summary
1. Connect to the Router To configure the WAN connection used by the Router it is first necessary to
communicate with the Router through its management interface, which is HTML-based and can be accessed using a web browser. To access the management software your computer must be able to â€śseeâ€ť the Router. Your computer can see the Router if it is in the same â€śneighborhoodâ€ť or subnet as the Router. This is accomplished by making sure your computer has IP settings that place it in the same subnet as the Router. The easiest way to make sure your computer has the correct IP settings is to configure it to use the DHCP server in the Router. The next section describes how to change the IP configuration for a computer running a Windows operating system to be a DHCP client.
2. Configure the WAN Connection Once your are able to access the configuration software you can
proceed to change the settings required to establish the ADSL connection and connect to the service providerâ€™s network. There are different methods used to establish the connection to the service providerâ€™s network and ultimately to the Internet. You should know what Encapsulation and connection type you are required to use for your ADSL service. It is also possible that you must change the PVC settings used for the ADSL connection. Your service provider should provide all the information you need to configure the WAN connection. Configuring IP Settings on Your Computer
In order to configure your system to receive IP settings from the Router it must first have the TCP/IP protocol
installed. If you have an Ethernet port on your computer, it probably already has TCP/IP protocol installed. If you are using Windows XP the TCP/IP is enabled by default for standard installations. Below is an illustrated example of how to configure a Windows XP system to automatically obtain IP settings from the Router. Following this example is a step-by-step description of the procedures used on the other Windows operating
systems to first check if the TCP/IP protocol has been installed, if it is not instruction are provided for installing it. Once the protocol has been installed you can configure the system to receive IP settings from the Router.
For computers running non-Windows operating systems, follow the instructions for your OS that configure the system to receive an IP address from the Router, that is, configure the system to be a DHCP client.

Figure 3- 2. Login to Router Do not confuse the user name and password used to access the web-based manager with the ADSL account user name and password needed for PPP Note connections to access the service providerâ€™s network. Configure the Router
The first page that appears after you successfully login displays the menu you need to configure the Router so it
can connect to the Internet. The Multiple PVC menu is used to configure the Routerâ€™s WAN connection and also used to add other virtual connections (PVCs). Our purpose now is to merely establish the primary connection. The remainder of this chapter describes what is how to establish this WAN connection. For a complete description of the user changeable variables in the Multiple PVC menu see WAN Connection Configuration in the next chapter. Figure 3- 3. Configuring the WAN Connection (First Time Setup)
17 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide
When the Router is used to provide Internet access it actually must first access your service providerâ€™s network,
that is, it must communicate with computers and other routers owned by your service provider. These computers and routers then provide access to the Internet. The Router must be configured to communicate with the systems that give it access to the larger network. There are different methods or protocols used to make this communication possible, and both ends of the communication must agree on what method to use and how to set up the connection. This is what you will configure the Router to do, to agree with the service providerâ€™s equipment and negotiate the terms of the connection using a language or protocol that both sides understand.
Sometimes it is also necessary to configure settings that control the actual ADSL connection. The ADSL
connection is what actually carries the data from one point to the other. So in addition to telling the Router what method it must use, you may also be asked change the PVC (Permanent Virtual Channel) settings. These settings are defined by two number the VPI (Virtual Path Indicator) and the VCI (Virtual Channel Indicator).
All the information you need to make the changes needed for a functioning WAN connection should have been provided to you by your ISP or network service provider.
To configure the WAN connection, open the Multiple PVC menu and perform the steps listed below. Some of the settings do not need to be changed when you first set up the device but can be changed later if you choose.
Leave Select Index to set at 1.
Type in an Item Name in the space provided. Or just use the default name ISP1.
Do not change the VPI or VCI values unless you are required to do so. If these settings are incorrect, the ADSL connection will not function. Many users will be able to use the default settings. If you are told to change these, type in the values given to you by your service provider.
Select the Encapsulation method used for your connection. The options available are PPPoA VC mux, PPPoA LLC, PPPoE LLC, IPoA VC mux, IPoA LLC, Bridge VC mux or Bridge LLC. The default Encapsulation is PPPoA LLC. If you select an IPoA or Bridge Encapsulation, the user changeable variables displayed in the browser will change. These different variables are described in step 5.1 â€“ 5.3.
The remaining settings that must be configured are different for the different Encapsulations.
5.1 If you have selected a PPPoE or PPPoA Encapsulation you must supply a User Name and Password
used to verify the identity of your account. Type in the User Name and Password used for your PPP connection. Also select the Authentication method used, pap or chap, choose Enabled for Connect On Demand and leave the Idle Time setting at 0.
5.2 If you have selected a IPoA Encapsulation, you must choose whether to enable or disable the IP Unnumbered option. The option is enabled by default. If you are instructed to leave this enabled, go to step 6. If you are told to disable the IP Unnumbered option, you must supply the global IP settings used for your account. In this case type in the IP Address and select the Subnet Mask from the drop down menu and go to step 6.
5.3 If you have selected a Bridge Encapsulation, there are no more change needed to establish the WAN
connection for the Router. However, you will probably have to install some sort of connection software on your computer. Go to step 6 and finalize the Router configuration, then install any additional software. Follow the instructions given to you by your ISP or network service provider.
Click the Add button when you have entered all the information. The web browser will briefly go blank.
After a few seconds the PVC profile listed in the Existing Entry Table at the top of the web page will show the changes you just configured.
Click the Apply button located to the right of the Existing Entry Table. After a few second you will be prompted
to save the changes and restart or continue to make other changes to the Routerâ€™s configuration. Leave the Save and Restart option selected and click the OK button. The Router will save the WAN configuration settings and restart. After restarting it will begin to negotiate the connection. You can login to the web manager again and you should see the Routerâ€™s Connection Status at the bottom of the web page. When this indicates the Router is Connected you can access the Internet or continue to configure the Router.
DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide 4 Web-based Management Guide The DSL-604+ offers a web-based (HTML) graphical user interface allowing users to manage the Router from
anywhere on the LAN using a standard browser, software such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer. The web browser is used for direct communication with the Router using HTTP protocol. Accessing the Web Manager
In order to use the web-based management software it will be necessary to use a computer that occupies the
same subnet as the Router. The simplest way to do this for many users will be to use DHCP server that is enabled by default on the Router. Chapter 3 provides instructions on how to configure a system running Windows operating systems to be DHCP client. You may also specify IP settings for your computer. The Router has a default IP address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. Once you have accessed the configuration software you can configure the Routerâ€™s IP settings and DHCP server configuration to suit your preferences.
To use the web-based management software run the browser you have installed on your computer and direct it to
the Routerâ€™s HTML interface using its LAN IP address. If this is the first time you are accessing the web-based manager you must type its default IP address, 192.168.0.1 in the addressbar of the browser. The URL in the address bar should read: http://192.168.0.1. If you change the IP address you will use the new IP address to access the web-based manager.
In the page that opens, click on the Login to web-based management module button.
A new window will appear and you will be prompted for a user name and password. Use default user name admin and password admin for first time set up. Be sure that the web browser on your computer is not configured to use a proxy server in the Internet settings. In Windows Internet Explorer, you can check if a proxy server is enabled using the following procedure:
1. In Windows, click on the START button, go to Settings and choose Control Panel.
2. In the Control Panel window, double-click on the Internet Options icon. Note
3. Click the Connections tab and click on the LAN Settings button. 4. Verify that the â€śUse proxy serverâ€ť option is NOT checked. If it is checked, click in the checked box to deselect the option and click OK. Alternatively you can access this Internet Options menu using the Tools pull down menu in Internet Explorer. Folders and Menus
The web manager interface (GUI) displays two fields that can scrolled with your mouse to view areas of the field
that may be hidden from view. The field located on the left side of the GUI contains three folders that can be opened with a double left click of the mouse. Open the Configuration folder, the Maintenance folder and the Summary folder and you will see that they each contain a number of labeled buttons. You can click the button or the hyperlinked title of these buttons to view the menu associated with it. These are the menus you will use to configure, manage and monitor the Router. Router Configuration
All the settings that define Router operations on both the LAN and WAN can be configured with the menus
located in the Configuration folder. These menus are described in the first part of this chapter presented in the same order that they appear in your browser.
19 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide
The Maintenance folder and Summary folder contain menus useful for system upkeep and analysis. These menus are described later in this chapter. Configuring the WAN Connection
Use the Multiple PVC menu to configure the WAN interface for PVC settings and other settings used to
configure the ADSL connection and the connection to the service providerâ€™s network. Use this menu to add, change or delete PVC connection profiles if you have a multiple PVC account. The following section, Additional Virtual Connections (PVCs), describes how to set up additional PVC connection profiles. Figure 4- 1. WAN Configuration
The Router may be configured to use common Encapsulation and connection methods commonly used for
ADSL service. The information that is needed for the different method varies according to connection type. Therefore the menu will change to offer different settings depending on whether the connection is a PPP, IPoA or Bridged connection type.
To configure a single PVC profile, select the Encapsulation setting first. This may change the user configurable
variables that are offered. The default Encapsulation used for the Index 1 profile is PPPoA LLC. WAN Connection Configuration on the next page lists the configuration settings for the different Encapsulation types.

connect any workstation on your LAN to the Internet upon request. If this Connect on Demand
function is disabled, it will be necessary to access this menu and hit the Connect button each time you want to establish a connection to the WAN or the Internet. A value of 0 means that the PPP connection will remain connected. If
your network account is billed according to the amount of time the Router is actually connected to the Internet, enter an appropriate Idle Idle Time
Time value (in seconds). This will disconnect the Router after the WAN connection has been idle for the amount of time specified. The default value = 0. IPoA Connections must configure:
This is enabled by default and therefore no IP settings need to be IP Unnumbered
entered for the account. If this is disabled, (global) IP settings must be configured for the WAN interface. If IP Unnumbered is disabled, type in the WAN IP address for the IP Address
account. If IP Unnumbered is disabled, type in the subnet mask for the WAN Subnet Mask
interface. WAN Connection Configuration Connect / Disconnect
If you have enabled the Connect on Demand feature, the Router will begin to negotiate the WAN connection
upon restarting. If the Connect on Demand feature has been disabled, click the Connect button to initiate the connection via the ADSL WAN interface. The process will take a few seconds. To end the WAN connection, click on the Disconnectbutton.
21 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Additional Virtual Connections (PVCs)
The Router can use up to eight simultaneous PVC connections. These additional connections occupy the same bandwidth used for ADSL service. Additional PVC connections can be added to establish a private connection to remote offices or maintain a server accessible through the WAN port. Provision for additional PVC profiles must
be done through the telephone company or telecommunications services company. The remote user must have suitable ADSL equipment for a successful connection.
Use the Multiple PVC menu to add, delete or modify additional PVCs as described below.
Figure 4- 2. Multiple PVC Menu
In order to use additional PVCs each profile must have a unique (to the Router) Item Name and a unique

Identifier) is used to identify a group of wireless LAN components. The basic wireless settings displayed at the top of the menu are described as follows: SSID: The SSID identifies members of Service Set. All WLAN devices operating on a Service Set (or
Extended Service Set) must use the same SSID. This can be any alphanumeric value of up to 32 characters long. Use this to prevent cross communication between two or more WLANs in one area. Type in the common SSID used for your wireless network or network segment. Channel: What channels are available for use by the access point depends on the local regulatory environment.
Remember that all devices communicating with the device must use the same channel (and use the same SSID). Use the drop down menu to select the channel used for your 802.11b wireless LAN. Trans Rate: This is automatically determined and not user defined. The current data transfer rate used for this access point is displayed. If you are accessing the DSL-604+ Web Manager via the wireless interface and change the Channel or SSID, contact with the device will end once the changes to Note the wireless settings are in effect. You will need to change the same settings for the wireless host you are using to regain access to the device. WEP Encryption
WEP (Wireless Encryption Protocol or Wired Equivalent Privacy) encryption can be enabled for security and
privacy. WEP encrypts the data portion of each frame transmitted from the wireless adapter using one of the predefined keys. WEP keys used for the DSL-604+ are shared keys which means that it will allow only wireless devices that have the shared key to associate with it. Decryption of the data contained in each packet can only be done if the both the receiver and transmitter have the correct shared key. If you are configuring the wireless settings for the first time, disable WEP on at least a few stations and use them to test for connectivity and signal strength before you Note configure WEP. It is important to first determine that basic wireless operation is possible before enabling WEP.
Configure the following parameters for WEP: WEP State: Use the drop down menu to select the type of WEP encryption or disable it (Disabled by default).
Select 64 Bit to enabled 64 bit Hexadecimal encryption, or select 128 Bit to enable 128 bit Hexadecimal encryption. Up to four separate 64 bit keys can be listed, but only one may be active. A key becomes the active key by selecting it. If you have opted not to use a Passphrase, you can define the keys here by typing in 10 hexadecimal digits. Hexadecimal digits are defined as the numerical digits 0 â€“ 9 and the letters A â€“ F (upper and lower case are recognized as the same digit). WEP Key: There are two options, select one: Pass phrase: Choose the Passphrase option and type a passphrase used for conversion to a hexadecimal key.
For 64 bit encryption, the (ASCII) characters are converted automatically and listed as 5-digit hexadecimal keys. 64 bit encryption allows you to select one of four active keys. For 128 bit encryption, the characters are converted and listed as a 13 digit hexadecimal key. 128 bit encryption allows you to select one of four active keys. 64 Bit Hex Key: Choose the 64 Bit Hex Key option and select an active 64 bit key used to encrypt data frames.
Up to four separate 64 bit keys can be listed, but only one may be active. A key becomes the active key by selecting it. If you have opted not to use a Passphrase, you can define the keys here by typing in 10 hexadecimal digits. Hexadecimal digits are defined as the numerical digits 0 â€“ 9 and the letters A â€“ F (upper and lower case are recognized as the same digit).
DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide 128 Bit Hex Key: Choose the 128 Bit Hex Key option and define the 128 bit key. Enable the 128 bit key by
selecting it and typing the key characters in the allotted spaces. If you have opted not to use a Passphrase, you can define the keys here by typing in 26 hexadecimal digits. Hexadecimal digits are defined as the numerical digits 0 â€“ 9 and the letters A - F (upper and lower case are recognized as the same digit).
Figure 4- 4. WAN Configuration 64 bit WEP = 40 bit WEP The lower level of WEP encryption uses a 40 bit (10 Hex character) â€śsecret keyâ€ť (set by the user), and a 24 bit Note â€śInitialization Vectorâ€ť (not under user control). Some vendors refer to this as 40 bit WEP, it is the same as 64 bit WEP only the name is different.
26 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide MAC Access Control
For added security you can opt to use Access Control based on MAC address. This feature lets you create a list of MAC addresses that are allowed or denied association with the Router through the wireless interface. When it is enabled, the access point is instructed to forward packets only from wireless devices only if the MAC address
of the device is granted association. Packets received through the wireless interface from non-authorized devices, including other access points, will be dropped. Packets received on the Ethernet port continue to be forwarded to authorized MAC addresses and broadcast packets from the Ethernet are broadcast to all stations, authorized and non-authorized, unless the destination MAC address has been explicitly denied association (see next paragraph).
You may also enter MAC addresses that are explicitly denied permission to associate. In this case, all packets
with a destination MAC address that has been denied permission will be dropped. Broadcast and unicast packets are NOT forwarded to devices that are denied permission through the wireless interface.
Keep in mind that there are drawbacks to using Access Control. Any wireless device that is added to the network
must be granted explicit permission to join by adding it to the Authorized MAC Table. Be sure to include the MAC address of other access points that you want to associate with the Router. As with other security measures, throughput can be affected since each packet header is examined before the packet is forwarded or dropped.
When you have completed making changes to the list of qualified MAC addresses, click the OK button. You can save and restart or continue to change Router settings. To Grant Access
To grant permission to associate with the Router follow these steps:
1. Type in the MAC address with no spaces or dashes in the MAC address entry field. The entry field

30 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide NAT Configuration
Network Address Translation (NAT) is a routing protocol that allows your network to become a private network
that is isolated from, yet connected to the Internet. It does this by changing the IP address of packets from a global IP address usable on the Internet to a local IP address usable on your private network (but not on the Internet) and vice-versa. The Router allows up to 128 host IP addresses.
NAT has two major benefits. First, NAT allows many users to access the Internet using a single global IP
address. This can greatly reduce the costs associated with Internet access and helps alleviate the current shortage of Internet IP addresses. Secondly, the NAT process creates an added degree of security by hiding your private network behind one IP address. The NAT function will normally only allow incoming packets that are generated in response to a request from a host within the LAN.
If your network uses web servers, FTP servers or other proxies used for data requests from outside the private
network, you can use NAT in conjunction with Port Redirection to allow appropriate use of your servers by outside users. See the section on Port Redirection for more information.
For the purposes of network administration, NAT is almost indispensable. Hosts and servers on the internal
network can be moved easily. Using NAT together with DHCP can greatly reduce the workload of a network manager while allowing tremendous flexibility.
To view the NAT Configuration menu, click on the NAT Configuration button:
Figure 4- 8. NAT Configuration Menu
The following parameters can be configured using the NAT Configuration menu:
Default = enabled. Select enabled or disabled to enable or disable the NAT NAT Function
Default = disabled. Select enabled or disabled to enable or disable the DMZ DMZ State
With the DMZ State enabled, type in the LAN IP address of a designated DMZ IP Address
DMZ device (see explanation below).
For users with multiple PVC accounts, you can configure NAT for each Interface
profile. NAT is enabled by default for any additional profiles.
31 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide DMZ IP Address
NAT may conflict with certain interactive applications such as video conferencing or playing Internet video
games. For these applications, a NAT bypass can be set up using a DMZ IP address. The DMZ IP address is a â€śvisibleâ€ť address and does not benefit from the full protection of the NAT function. Therefore it is advisable that other security precautions be enabled to protect the other computers and devices on the LAN. It may be wise to use isolate the device with the DMZ IP address from the rest of the LAN.
For example, if you want to use video conferencing and still use NAT, you can use the DMZ IP address function.
In this case, you must have a PC or server through which video conferencing will take place. The IP address of this PC or server will then be the DMZ IP address. You can designate the serverâ€™s IP address as the DMZ by typing in the IP address in the DMZ IP Address space provided and clicking the OK button.
For the system that uses the DMZ IP address, you may want to manually assign an IP address to it and adjust
your DHCP server addresses so that the DMZ IP address is not included in the DHCP server range. This way you avoid possible IP address problems if you reboot the DMZ system.
IP Masquerade Pass Through
Since certain protocols have difficulty operating in conjunction with NAT, the Router can forward these packets without subjecting them to NAT address mapping. In particular, IPsec (a special network security protocol) and
PPTP (a tunneling protocol used for virtual private networks) are not compatible with NAT. For this reason, the Router is configured to allow them to pass by default. You may disable this using the IP Masquerade Pass Through menu. To block in effect either packet type while NAT is running you must deselect the type here and click the OK button.
Figure 4- 9. IP Masquerade Pass Through
32 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide IP Masquerade Timer
The IP Masquerade Timer is used to control how frequently the IP Masquerade table is updated. The IP
Masquerade table is used to map the internal LAN IP addresses to the external WAN global IP address used for your account. If you are familiar with Ethernet switching, you can think of the IP Masquerade Timer as being similar to a MAC address table timeout in a switch.
Figure 4- 10. IP Masquerade Timer
To change the IP Masquerade for the default settings, select the time for TCP or UDP packets from their respective drop-down menus and click the OK button.
33 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Port Redirection
Figure 4- 11. Port Redirection Menu
The Port Redirection feature of the Router is used in conjunction with NAT or IP Masquerading to improve
security and efficiency. Port redirection can be used to direct potentially hazardous packets to a proxy server outside your firewall. For example, you can configure the Router to direct HTTP packets to a designated HTTP server in the DMZ. Other common applications might include directing incoming SMTP packets to an Email server for data scrutiny and improved network efficiency.
Port Redirection can be used to redirect TCP or UDP packets to a specified port and a specified IP address on your local network. You can define a set of instructions for a specific incoming port or for a range of incoming ports. Each instruction set or rule is indexed and can be modified or deleted later as needed.
The user changeable variables available for Port Redirection are listed in the table below.
34 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide
Port redirection is universally enabled or disabled for the Router with the Port Redirection State drop-down

36 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide Advanced Filter & Firewall
One of the most important elements of any network security implementation is the firewall. Packet filtering is a
basic firewall security measure and should be used on any network that is exposed to security risk. A packet filter system examines data packets and scrutinizes them in order to control network access. Filtering rules determine whether packets are passed through the Router from either side of the gateway. The rules are created and controlled by the network administrator and can be precisely defined. These rules are used to block access to the LAN from outside the network and/or to deny access to the WAN from within the network. The Router uses filtering rules to examine data packet headers for specific information. Packets passing through the Router that do not meet the criteria specified by the rule set are dropped.
In order to improve network security without severely limiting network efficiency, it is important to carefully plan the sets of access rules. Effective implementation of packet filtering requires detailed knowledge of network
services and communication protocols. An overly complicated filtering scheme can adversely affect Router performance, while an inadequate set of rules may needlessly compromise security.
Filtering rules can be precisely defined based upon source and destination IP address, as well as port and protocol information.
Figure 4- 13. Filter & Firewall Main Menu
The Existing Entry number tells you how many routes are currently configured. The Valid Entry number tells
you the number of routes that are enabled. Filtering can be universally enabled or disabled with the drop-down IP Filter State drop-down menu.

41 DSL-604+ ADSL Ethernet Router Userâ€™s Guide System Maintenance
The Mainatenance folder in the web mananger contains links to menus used for sytem maintenance functions including firmware upgarde and username/password configuration. ATM Loopback Test
ATM loopback tests are used to verify connectivity and path integrity along a specified ATM circuit. In the test,
a cell is sent to an endpoint or to the end of the first segment of the ATM path. If the path is available and the connections are functioning, an test cell will be returned along the same ATM path and be detected by the device. This is very similar to a Ping test. The test can help to determine if connectivity problems originate from outside the LAN.
Figure 4- 17. ATM Loopback Screen
To perform the test, define the following parameters: VPI
Type in the VPI setting used for the network connection. VCI
Type in the VCI setting used for the network connection.
Choose F4 (Virtual Path) or F5 (Virtual Connection) from the pull-down menu to
define the flow type. An F4 flow test is used to verify that ATM network information (ATM cells) can be shared between network elements. This information is used within virtual paths to report an unavailable path or a virtual path that cannot be F4/F5
guaranteed. An F5 flow test is also used to verify that ATM network information can be shared between network elements. This information is used within virtual connections to report degraded virtual channel performance such as late arriving cells, lost cells, and cell insertion problems.
Select the test type from the remaining pull-down menu. Choose End-to-End to test etoe/segment the entire path from the Router to the ATM connection endpoint. Choose segment
to test the path from the Router to the end of the first ATM connection segment.
A success or fail message appears here after the test is completed. If the reply cell Status
is received within the standard-defined time, the Status will read OK. This indicates that the specified test path is functioning normally and all connections were successful. If the Status reads Fail, there is a fault in the segment or path tested.
