This chapter offers an overview of the HomePortal 3801HGV gateway, and describes its key features.

Overview

The 2Wire HomePortal 3801HGV gateway is an advanced gateway that either the service provider or the subscriber can install.

It is a home networking device that provides an 802.11b/g Wi-Fi access point and switching functions for connecting personal computers and other home-networked devices to the service provider network. The gateway has 4 10/100 Ethernet ports to connect to computers or devices in the home. It comes loaded with hardware capabilities that enable you to use VoIP and Video Streaming technologies.

What the HomePortal 3801HGV Gateway Does for You

The HomePortal 3801HGV gateway gives you a seamless, high speed Internet access, amongst a host of other features:

Seamless Wireless Connectivity: The gateway includes an integrated wireless access point that allows you to roam wirelessly throughout the home or office. 2Wire high-powered wireless technology helps to reduce wireless “cold spots” in the home. The high-power 400mW transmitter of the gateway increases wireless bandwidth throughout the coverage area

Home Networking: Share files, printers, and a broadband connection with every computer and other network-ready device in the home or small office through the advanced LAN technology. There are 4 Ethernet ports you can use to connect to multiple devices in your network

Introducing the HomePortal 3801HGV Gateway

Parental Controls (Internet Access Controls and Content Screening): Parental controls offer easy-to-use tools to limit access to specific Websites, monitor browsing history and usage, and enforce time restrictions on common applications. Parental control settings are straightforward and easily managed by users. Because this service resides at the gateway, every Internet device on the network can be protected—even visiting devices

Advanced Firewall Monitoring: This feature watches for suspicious activity, helping to eliminate security issues before they have a chance to proliferate. It automatically keeps itself current with software updates. You can decide when and how to receive notification of attacks and view detailed logs through the gateway’s user interface

Web Remote Access: You can gain fast, easy access to your local network remotely using an Internet browser. Download files securely from anywhere using an Internet connection and network password. You can also view and manage all gateway settings, including those for other applications like Parental Controls and Firewall Monitoring

Voice Over IP (VoIP): Two FXS lines through an RJ-14 jack provide prioritized VoIP services, lowering your communication costs. This gateway also supports wireless-wireline convergence

HomePNA (HPNA): HPNA features for distributing entertainment and triple play data over existing coax cables

Network Address Translation (NAT): NAT and Network Address and Port Translation (NAPT) technology for enabling multiple hosts on private network using a common IP address

Internet Protocol Security (IPsec): IPsec for protecting data flows between a pair of hosts, between a pair of security gateways, or between a security gateway and a host

Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP): IGMP and IGMP Proxying for NAT and firewall traversal

Domain Name Server (DNS): Acts as a DNS name server to LAN devices, letting you set a simple domain name for devices instead of keeping track of their respective IP addresses

QoS (Quality of Service): QoS features such as policies, priority queuing, shaping, and management allows you effectively manage the available Internet bandwidth

Logs: The gateway maintains an internal log of broadband status and WAN-side connection flows, letting you or the ISP’s technician effectively diagnose issues

PING Client: To ping LAN and WAN side IP addresses within your network. This lets you know whether a device is responding or not

The HomePortal 3801HGV gateway comes loaded with a user-friendly Web interface that allows you to configure your gateway settings as per your requirements

Components

Before installing your gateway, review the package content and ensure that you have items available as shown below.

CHAPTER 2

Installing the HomePortal

3801HGV Gateway

Installing your HomePortal 3801HGV gateway consists of the following tasks:

Determining HomePortal 3801HGV Gateway Location on page 4

Connecting the Power Adapter on page 5

Connecting Your Computer to the Gateway on page 5

Connecting the Broadband Interface on page 7

Connecting VoIP Interface on page 8

Connecting HPNA Interface to IPTV set top Box on page 9

Determining HomePortal 3801HGV Gateway Location

If you have subscribed for IPTV and High Speed Internet, then the preferred location for installing the HomePortal 3801HGV gateway is near the first video set top box. If you have subscribed only for High Speed Internet access, then the HomePortal 3801HGV gateway should be installed near the first computer.

Also, you must determine a Wireless Access Point (WAP) location to deploy the HomePortal 3801HGV gateway. Wireless signals are affected by many items in homes and offices. Reliability and performance are the major considerations when planning your wireless network location. Consider the following points before determining the WAP to deploy the gateway:

Place your gateway at least 5 feet (1.52 meters) from cordless phones, microwave ovens, or other electronic devices to avoid potential interference, and more than 6 inches (15.24 centimeters) away from your television to avoid audio hissing or static

Place the gateway in an open area where the wireless range will not be directly affected by the surroundings. Wireless signal strength will be much stronger in an open area as opposed to an area with obstructions. In a single-story building, place the gateway as high and as close to each wireless computer as possible

Keep the gateway away from any large metal objects. Wireless signal quality may be adversely affected as metal objects can reflect or obstruct signals

Note Whenever possible, use the stand provided with the gateway, and install it in the vertical position. Make sure that it is installed in a manner that nothing can be stacked on the top of it. Vertical orientation is the preferred method for mounting the HomePortal 3801HGV gatewaygateway.

Connecting through Wireless

The HomePortal 3801HGV gateway has an integrated wireless access point (AP) that enables you to connect your wireless-enabled computers to your gateway. By default, the HomePortal 3801HGV gateway is shipped with WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK enabled and a preconfigured network name.

Most laptops are equipped with an internal 802.11b/g card. If your computer is not equipped with an internal card, you can install an external wireless adapter for wireless networking.

Note The default network name (SSID) is the encryption key, a 64-bit hex value located beneath the bar code on the side of the 2Wire gateway (for example, 1234567891). For Mac OS X users, you may need to enter the “$” character at the beginning of the encryption key (for example, $1234567891).

Follow these steps to connect the computer to the gateway using Wireless:

1.Push the wireless button at the bottom of the gateway front panel. Verify that the WIRELESS light on the front of the HomePortal 3801HGV gateway is solid green.

2.Install and configure your wireless adapter, if required.
