To add a new entry, please follow the steps below.
1. Click the Add New… button and the next screen will pop-up
Choose menu “Security → Remote Management”, and then you can configure the Remote Management function in the screen .
This feature allows you to manage your router from a remote location via the Internet
Web Management Port – Web browser access normally uses the standard HTTP service port 80.
This router’s default remote management web port number is 80. For greater security, you can change the remote management web port to a custom port by entering that number in the box provided.
Choose a number between 1 and 65534 but do not use the number of any common service port.
Remote Management IP Address – This is the current address you will use when accessing
your router from the Internet.
This function is disabled when the IP address is set to the default value of 0.0.0.0.
To enable this function change 0.0.0.0 to a valid IP address.
If set to 255.255.255.255, then all the hosts can access the router from internet.
1. To access the router, you should type your router’s WAN IP address into your browser’s address (in IE) or Location (in Navigator) box, followed by a colon and the custom port number.
For example, if your router’s WAN address is 18.104.22.168, and the port number used is 8080, please enter http://22.214.171.124:8080 in your browser. Later, you may be asked for the router’s password.
After successfully entering the username and password, you will
be able to access the router’s web-based utility.
2. Be sure to change the router’s default password to a very secure password.
Choose menu “Security → Local Management”, and then you can configure the management rule in the screen .
The management feature allows you to deny computers in LAN from accessing the router.
By default, the radio button “All the PCs on the LAN are allowed to access the router’s Web-Based Utility” is checked.
If you want to allow PCs with specific MAC Addresses to access the Setup page of the router’s Web-Based Utility locally from inside the network, check the radio button “Only the PCs listed can browse the built-in web pages to perform Administrator tasks”, and then enter each MAC Address in a separate field.
The format for the MAC Address is XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX (X is any hexadecimal digit).
Only the PCs with MAC address listed can use the password to browse the built-in web pages to perform Administrator tasks while all the others will be blocked.
After click the Add button, your PC’s MAC Address will be placed in the list above.
Click the Save button to save your settings.
If your PC is blocked but you want to access the router again, use a pin to press and hold the WPS/Reset button (hole) on the back panel for about 5 seconds to reset the router’s factory defaults on the router’s Web-Based Utility.
Choose menu “Wireless → Wireless Statistics”, you can see the MAC Address, Current Status, Received Packets and Sent Packets for each connected wireless station.
MAC Address – The connected wireless station’s MAC address
Current Status – The connected wireless station’s running status, one of STA-AUTH/STA-ASSOC/ STA-JOINED/ WPA/ WPA-PSK/ WPA2/ WPA2-PSK/ AP-UP/ AP-DOWN/ Disconnected
Received Packets – Packets received by the station
Sent Packets – Packets sent by the station
You cannot change any of the values on this page.
To update this page and to show the current connected wireless stations, click on the Refresh button.
If the numbers of connected wireless stations go beyond one page, click the Next button to go to
the next page and click the Previous button to return the previous page.
This page will be refreshed automatically every 5 seconds
Choose menu “Security → Advanced Security”, and then you can protect the router from being attacked by TCP-SYN Flood, UDP Flood and ICMP-Flood in the screen
Packets Statistics Interval (5~60) – The default value is 10. Select a value between 5 and 60 seconds from the drop-down list.
The Packets Statistics Interval value indicates the time section of the packets statistics.
The result of the statistics is used for analysis by SYN Flood, UDP Flood and ICMP-Flood.
DoS Protection – Denial of Service protection. Check the Enable or Disable button to enable or disable the DoS protection function.
Only when it is enabled, will the flood filters be enabled.
Choose menu “Security → Basic Security”, and then you can configure the basic security in the screen
Firewall – A firewall protects your network from the outside world. Here you can enable or
disable the router’s firewall.
SPI Firewall – SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection, also known as dynamic packet filtering) helps to prevent cyber attacks by tracking more state per session.
It validates that the traffic passing through the session conforms to the protocol. SPI Firewall is enabled by
factory default. If you want all the computers on the LAN exposed to the outside world, you can disable it.
VPN – VPN Passthrough must be enabled if you want to allow VPN tunnels using VPN
protocols to pass through the router.
Choose menu “Forwarding→UPnP”, and then you can view the information about UPnP in the screen . The Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) feature allows the devices,such as Internet computers, to access the local host resources or devices as needed.
UPnP devices can be automatically discovered by the UPnP service application on the LAN.
Current UPnP Status – UPnP can be enabled or disabled by clicking the Enable or Disable button.
This feature is enabled by default
Current UPnP Settings List – This table displays the current UPnP information.
App Description – The description about the application which initiates the UPnP
External Port – The port which the router opened for the application.
Protocol – The type of protocol which is opened.
Internal Port – The port which the router opened for local host.
IP Address – The IP address of the local host which initiates the UPnP request.
Status – Either Enabled or Disabled. “Enabled” means that the port is still active;
otherwise, the port is inactive.
Click the Enable button to enable UPnP.
Click the Disable button to disable UPnP.
Click the Refresh button to update the Current UPnP Settings List.
Choose menu “Forwarding→DMZ”, and then you can view and configure DMZ host in the screen .
The DMZ host feature allows one local host to be exposed to the Internet for a special-purpose service such as Internet gaming or videoconferencing.
The router forwards packets of all services to the DMZ host.
Any PC whose port is being forwarded must have its DHCP client function disabled and should have a new static IP Address assigned to it because its IP Address may be changed when using the DHCP function.
To assign a computer or server to be a DMZ server:
1. Click the Enable button.
2. Enter the IP address of a local PC that is set to be DMZ host in the DMZ Host IP Address
3. Click the Save button
