Choose menu “Network → WAN”, and then you can configure the IP parameters of the WAN on the screen below.

This page displays the WAN IP parameters assigned dynamically by your ISP, including IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, etc. Click the Renew button to renew the IP parameters from your ISP.
Click the Release button to release the IP parameters.

MTU Size – The normal MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) value for most Ethernet networks is 1500 Bytes.
It is not recommended that you change the default MTU Size unless required by your ISP.

Use These DNS Servers – If your ISP gives you one or two DNS addresses, select Use These DNS Servers and enter the primary and secondary addresses into the correct fields. Otherwise, the DNS servers will be assigned dynamically from your ISP.

Note:
If you find error when you go to a website after entering the DNS addresses, it is likely that your DNS servers are set up improperly.

You should contact your ISP to get DNS server addresses.

Host Name – This option specifies the Host Name of the Router.

Get IP with Unicast DHCP – A few ISPs’ DHCP servers do not support the broadcast applications.
If you cannot get the IP Address normally, you can choose this option. (It is rarely required.)
