A: About Static and Dynamic IP Address

A static IP address is an IP address that is assigned to a computer by an Internet service provider to be
its permanent address on the Internet. It is normally used in the computer networks, where computers
are connected all the times. As the Internet gets more crowded, there are not enough IP numbers to go
around. For this reason, more and more ISPs are offering dynamic IP address instead. Check with your
ISP if they provide you a Static IP address. A dynamic IP address is a temperately IP address assigned by
a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server from a pool of IP addresses. A dynamic IP address
may change every time when you log in the network.

THE SETUP WIZARD

The Gateway's Setup Wizard will guide you step by step to configure network. Please follow the
instructions as the wizard's pages request and change the settings in accordance to the information
provided by your ISP. 

If you use a DSL modem for broadband access, please go to the sectioned titled "PPPoE Connection
for WAN". If a fixed IP is used, please read the section titled "Fixed IP for WAN". If you're using a calbe
modem, please refer to 3.2.4 Dynamic IP for WAN.

PPPoE Connection for WAN

If your ISP uses PPPoE (Point-to-Point Over Ethernet) to communicate with end-users, you will need
information such as User Name and Password from your ISP. To set up a PPPoE connection for WAN,
configure your computer.

Create a Static route entry as follows:

1.

Select “Static Routing” from the drop down list.

2..

Enter the following data to set the Static Routing:

Destination LAN IP

You can create a static route by entering the IP address of the remote host or network. If you wish to build
a route to the entire network, be sure to set the network portion of the IP address to zero (0).

Subnet Mask

The Subnet Mask determines which portion of an IP address is the network portion, and which portion is
the host portion.

Gateway IP

This is the address of the Gateway device that allows for a contact between the Router and the remote
network or host.

Dynamic Routing:

Dynamic Routing can be used to cache routes learned by routing protocols, thus allowing the automation
of static routing maintenance. The Gateway, using the RIP protocol, determines the network packet’s route
based on the fewest number of hops between the source and the destination. In this case, you could
automatically adjust to physical changes in the network’s layout. Complete the following steps to set up
dynamic Routing:

1.

Choose the Working Mode.

Gateway Mode means the Gateway hosts your network’s connection to the Internet.

Router Mode means there is more than one Gateway on your network. 

2. 

Select Dynamic Routing from the drop down list and choose the protocol you wish to use on your
network.

maximum port number is 65535.

ROUTING

Static Routing: (Figure 30)

You may set up a static route if your want to connect your Gateway to more than one network. A static
route is a pre-determined pathway that network information must travel to reach a specific host or
network.

Field Definitions: 

The Max Idle time is the amount of time you would like to pass before the Gateway disconnects from the
Ineternet due to inactivity. Enter zero (0) in the field to remain connected despite idle time. The idle time
ranges from 0 to 60 minutes.

The Maximum Transmit Unit (MTU) is a feature which determines the maximum number of bytes
transmitted per packet. This should not be changed unless directed by your ISP.

Fixed IP for WAN

If your ISP has assigned a static IP address, you may connect to the Internet using a fixed, or static
address. To set up a Fixed IP for WAN, follow these steps.
