Introduction

1.1 An Overview of the ADSL Modem/Router

The ADSL Modem/Router provides a high-speed Ethernet port and an USB port for high-speed Internet browsing. It can support downstream transmission rates of up to 8Mbps and upstream transmission rates of up to 1024Kbps.  It is compliant with Multi-Mode standard (ANSI T1.413, Issue 2; G.dmt (G.992.1); G.lite (G992.2); G.hs (G994.1)).

The product supports PPPoA (RFC 2364 - PPP over ATM Adaptation Layer 5), RFC 1483 encapsulation over ATM (bridged or routed), PPP over Ethernet (RFC 2516), and IPoA (RFC1577) to establish a connection with ISP. The product also supports VC-based and LLC-based multiplexing.

It is the perfect solution to connect a small group of PCs to a high-speed broadband Internet connection. Multi-users can have high-speed Internet access simultaneously.

This product also serves as an Internet firewall, protecting your network from being accessed by outside users. Not only provide the natural firewall function (Network Address Translation, NAT), it also provides rich firewall features to secure user's network. All incoming data packets are monitored and filtered.  Besides, it can also be configured to block internal users from accessing to the Internet.  

The product provides two levels of security support.  First, it masks LAN users' IP addresses which are invisible to outside users on the Internet, making it much more difficult for a hacker to target a machine on your network.  Secondly, it can block and redirect certain ports to limit the services that outside users can access.  For example, to ensure that games and other Internet applications will run properly, user can open some specific ports for outside users to access internal services in network.

Integrated DHCP services, client and server, allow multiple users to get their IP addresses automatically on boot up from the product.  Simply set local machines as a DHCP client to accept a dynamically assigned IP address from DHCP server and reboot.  Each time local machine is powered up; the router will recognize it and assign an IP address to instantly connect it to the LAN.  

For advanced users, Virtual Service function allows the product to provide limited visibility to local machines with specific services for outside users.  An ISP provided IP address can be set to the product and then specific services can be rerouted to specific computers on the local network.  For instance, a dedicated web server can be connected to the Internet via the product and then incoming requests for HTML that are received by the product can be rerouted to the dedicated local web server, even though the server now has a different IP address.  In this example, the product is on the Internet and vulnerable to attacks, but the server is protected.

Virtual Server can also be used to re-task services to multiple servers.  For instance, the product can be set to allow separated FTP, Web, and Multiplayer game servers to share the same Internet-visible IP address while still protecting the servers and LAN users from hackers.

1.3 The ADSL Modem/Router Features

The ADSL Modem/Router provides the following features:

ADSL Multi-Mode Standard: Supports downstream transmission rates of up to 8Mbps and upstream transmission rates of up to 1024Kbps.  It is compliant with Multi-Mode standard (ANSI T1.413, Issue 2; G.dmt (G.992.1); G.lite (G992.2); G.hs (G994.1)).

Multi-Protocol to Establish A Connection: Supports PPPoA (RFC 2364 - PPP over ATM Adaptation Layer 5), RFC 1483 encapsulation over ATM (bridged or routed), PPP over Ethernet (RFC 2516) and IPoA (RFC1577) to establish a connection with ISP. The product also supports VC-based and LLC-based multiplexing.

Network Address Translation (NAT): Allows multi-users to access outside resource such as Internet simultaneously with one IP address/one Internet access account. Besides, many application layer gateway (ALG) are supported such as web browser, ICQ, FTP, Telnet, E-mail, News, Ping and others.

Domain Name System (DNS) relay: Provides an easy way to map the domain name (a friendly name for user such as www.yahoo.com) and IP address. When local machine sets its DNS server with this router's IP address. Then every DNS conversion request packet from the PC to this router will be forwarded to the real DNS in outside network. After the router gets the reply, then forwards it back to the PC.

PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE): Provides embedded PPPoE client function to establish a connection. Users can get greater access speed without changing the operation concept, sharing the same ISP account and paying for one access account. No PPPoE client software is required for local computer. The Automatic Reconnect and Disconnect Timeout (Idle Timer) functions are provided, too.

Virtual Server: User can specify some services to be visible from outside users. The router can detect incoming service request and forward it to the specific local computer to handle it. For example, user can assign a PC in LAN acting as WEB server inside and expose it to the outside network. Outside user can browse inside web server directly while it is protected by NAT. A DMZ host setting is also provided to a local computer exposed to the outside network, Internet.

Bridge Filtering: Filters the packet based on MAC address. It will increase the performance in LAN and WAN, also provide a higher-level security control.

Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP) client and server: In the WAN site, the DHCP client can get an IP address from the Internet Server Provider (ISP) automatically. In the LAN site, the DHCP server can allocate multiple clients IP addresses and distribute them including IP address, subnet mask as well as DNS IP address to local computers. It provides an easy way to manage the local IP network.

Web based GUI: Supports user-friendly web based GUI for configuration and management.

3.5.7 Configuration - Virtual Server Configuration

Being a natural Internet firewall, the ADSL Router protects your network from being accessed by outside users. When it needs to allow outside users to access internal servers, e.g. Web server, FTP server, E-mail server or News server, this product can act as a virtual server. You can set up a local server with specific port number that stands for the service, e.g. Web (80), FTP (21), Telnet (23), SMTP (25), POP3 (110), DNS (53), ECHO (7), NNTP (119). When an incoming access request to the router for specified port is received, it will be forwarded to the corresponding internal server.

For example, if you set the Public Port number 21 (FTP) to be mapped to the IP Address 192.168.1.100, then all the ftp requests from outside users will be forwarded to the local server with IP address of 192.168.1.100.

Public Port: Enter the public port number you want to configure.

Private Port: Enter the private port number you want to configure.

Port Type: Select TCP if you want to scope for the connection-based application service on the remote server using the port number. Or select UDP if you want to scope for the connectionless application service on the remote server using the port number.

Host IP Address: Enter the IP address of certain internal server to which requests from the specified port is forwarded.

If the DHCP server option is enabled, you have to be very careful in assigning the IP addresses of the virtual servers in order to avoid conflicts. The easy way is that the IP address assigned to each virtual server should not fall into the range of IP addresses that are to be issued by the DHCP server. You configure the virtual server IP address manually, but it is still in the same subnet with the router.

3.5.8 Configuration - Bridge Filtering Configuration

Enable Bridge Filtering: Check Yes to enable this function or check No to disable.

3.5.9 Configuration - DNS Configuration

A Domain Name System (DNS) contains a mapping table for domain name and IP address. In the Internet, every host has a unique and friendly name such as www.yahoo.com and IP address. The IP address is so hard to remember that you may just enter the friendly name www.yahoo.com and then the DNS will convert it to its equivalent IP address.

You can obtain Domain Name System (DNS) IP address automatically if ISP provides it when you logon. Or your ISP may provide you with an IP address of DNS. If this is the case, you must enter the DNS IP address.

Test PPP Layer connection

This test returns PASS if your DSL modem has been assigned a valid IP address by your service provider through DHCP or your DSL modem is assigned a valid IP address statically.

If this test returns FAIL, run this test again a few minutes after this test is completed.  If this test returns FAIL consistently and DHCP client is turned on in your DSL modem, check with your service provider.  If this test returns FAIL consistently and your DSL modem is statically assigned an IP address, make sure the IP address is the correct one assigned by your service provider.

This test returns SKIPPED if 'Ethernet connect to AAL5' test does not return PASS.

Test IP connect to PPP

This test returns PASS if your DSL modem has been assigned a valid IP address by your service provider through DHCP or your DSL modem is assigned a valid IP address statically.

If this test returns FAIL, run this test again a few minutes after this test is completed.  If this test returns FAIL consistently and DHCP client is turned on in your DSL modem, check with your service provider.  If this test returns FAIL consistently and your DSL modem is statically assigned an IP address, make sure the IP address is the correct one assigned by your service provider.

This test returns SKIPPED if 'Ethernet connect to AAL5' test does not return PASS.

Test IP connect to Ethernet

This test returns PASS if the gateway can be reached through ping request. The gateway is assigned by your service provider, or obtained from your service provider by PPP negotiation or DHCP negotiation.

If this test returns FAIL, run this test again a few minutes after this test is completed. If this test returns FAIL consistently and your DSL modem seems not working, check to make sure your statically assigned IP address is configured correctly or DHCP client is turned on with the current VC.

This test returns SKIPPED if "IP connect to PPP" or "IP connect to Ethernet" test does not return PASS.

Troubleshooting

If the ADSL Router is not functioning properly, you can refer first to this chapter for simple troubleshooting before contacting your service provider. This could save your time and effort but if the symptoms persist, then consult your service provider.

Problems Starting Up the ADSL Router

Problem
Corrective Action

None of the LEDs are on when you turn on the ADSL Router.

Check the connection between the adapter and the ADSL Router. If the error persists, you may have a hardware problem. In this case, you should contact technical support.

Problems with the WAN Interface

Problem
Corrective Action

Initialization of the PVC connection failed.

Ensure that the cable is connected properly from the ADSL port to the wall jack. The ADSL SYN LED on the front panel of the ADSL Router should be on. Check that your VPI, VCI, type of encapsulation and type of multiplexing settings are the same as what you collected from your telephone company and ISP.

Reboot the ADSL Router. If you still have problems, you may need to verify these variables with the telephone company and/or ISP.

Problems with the LAN Interface

Problem
Corrective Action

Can't ping any station on the LAN.

Check the LAN LNK LED on the front panel. The LED should be on for a port that has a station connected. If it is off, check the cables between your ADSL Router and the station.

Verify that the IP address and the subnet mask are consistent between the ADSL Router and the workstations.

Problems Connecting to a Remote Node or ISP
