Keep Alive - Enables the PPPoE client to send a Link Control Protocol (LCP) echo request to the PPPoE server

once per minute. If there is no reply within six minutes, the client disconnects. Set to Disable if frequent disconnection occurs.

WAN side (Internet) parameters. These settings are generally not required if your ISP is providing DHCP services. In this case these fi elds can be left blank if desired.

Host Name - Enter the host name as desired.

Default Gateway - A default gateway IP should be assigned to the AirStation. If unknown, leave blank. If Auto IP

assignment from DHCP Server is selected in theWAN Port section, a gateway IP is assigned automatically, provided the DHCP server is set to provide one.

DNS Server Address - Enter the primary and secondary DNS address(es) of the server to be used by the AirStation for DNS resolution.

If DNS was set to Do not use, leave blank. If Auto IP assignment from DHCP Serverwas selected, DNS addresses are assigned automatically, provided the DHCP server is set to provide them.


Advanced Settings

Port Number for WEB Settings - Set a specific port number when remote setup of the AirStation is planned. Using port 80 allows the AirStation to be accessed from the internet by connecting to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is your WAN IP address). You will need to configure the NAT (Adress Translation Settings) to forward PORT 80 back to the AirStation.

Block Ping from WAN - Allows a PING test from the WAN/Internet. SelectDisable orEnable.

Address Translation

Address Translation - Select

Use or Do not Use. Address Translation must be enabled for client computers to connect to the Internet. Selecting Useenables the following functions:

IP Masquerade- When the LAN computer connects to the WAN side, the IP address of LAN computer is dynamically translated to become the WAN IP address of the AirStation. Multiple LAN computers can share one WAN IP address to access the Internet.

Static IP address translation -Whenthe WAN requests connection to the LAN, the WAN IP address of the AirStation is translated into the IP address of the LAN computer.

Log Output - Set ‘Log Output’ to log discarded packets. Otherwise, a dropped packed is not logged.


Advanced Settings

IP address of DMZ - Allows administrator to set the DMZ(De-MilitarizedZone) address. Incoming packets containing no recognizable destination port information will be redirected to the DMZ’s IP address.

Display/Delete NAT Table - Allows administrator to delete NAT tables.

Add NAT Table

Group - Specify a group (up to 16 characters) that the NAT rule belongs. Groups are simply used


to visually organize the NAT


table for the administrator. It


is recommended to name the



group after the protocol that is


being setup (e.g. Group Name


FTP when setting up address


translation for FTP)


Click New Group to create


new group or select an existing


group to add a NAT rule to it.

IP address of WAN - Select AirStation’s IP address of WANor Manual setting. For Manual setting, enter the IP address used by the WAN computer to connect to the local computer.

AirStation’s IP address of WAN should be used unless you have multiple WAN side IP addresses.


Advanced Settings

Some network applications (online games or streaming software) require adding Address Translation tables; consult the software’s documentation for port information).

Protocol (WAN):

All - Selects all IP protocols.

ICMP - Network Diagnostic Protocol (1).

Manual - Specify the protocol number(0-65535).

TCP/UDP - Enter port number for TCP or UDP protocols. If both TCP and UDP are required, then separate entries are required.

IP address of LAN - SelectManual and enter the destination IP address of the LAN computer; or selectAirStation’s IP address of LAN.AirStation’s IP address of LAN should be used when setting up the port for web setting (Section 4.2.2). For the web setting, forward a TCP port (typically port 80) from AirStation’s IP address of WAN to the same TCP port for AirStation’s IP address of LAN.

Protocol (LAN) - Enter destination port number. If left blank, the packets are transferred to the same port number as the source port number. Typically the destination port should be left the same as the source port.

• Click Add to NAT table. This will add the information to the NAT table. Once you have gone through this process for every desired translation, you will need to press theApply button on the top of the screen to start the translating.

Packet Filter

Log Output - Select Outputto activate the packet fi lter log.

Packet Filter Information Basic Rule - Click add/delete basic rules. Place a check mark next to the basic rule to enable:

Prohibit setup from wireless LAN - Prohibits administration from a wireless computer.

Prohibit setup from wired LAN - Prohibits administration from a wired computer.

Prohibit setup via wireless bridge access point - Prohibits a personal computer connected to another AirStation in a wireless bridge.

Prohibit NBT and Microsoft-DS routing - Prevent unexpected external access via Microsoft network sharing. This prohibits computers on the internet from accessing shared resources on Windows machines. It is recommended to leave this fi lter activated.

Reject the IDENT request - The AirStation sends reject packets if it receives an IDENT request.
