introduction

Thank you for purchasing the INTELLINET NETWORK SOLUTIONS4-Port Broadband Router, Model 524537.

Combining a router, firewall and four-port Fast Ethernet switch, this handy device lets you experience fast speeds as you surf the Web, download music or photos, and play online games. A DHCP server that automatically assigns IP addresses to users on the LAN — plus UPnP that supports gaming — makes this the perfect router for the home network.

Of course, keeping intruders out of your network can be a challenge, but this feature-rich router is designed to make that seemingly daunting task easier. It includes a true firewall that secures your network against hackers. With NetworkAddress Translation (NAT) to shield your networked devices from intruders plus content control using URL and MAC filtering, you can rest assured that you have taken the necessary precautions to protect the data on your network.

The easy-to-follow instructions in this user manual help make setup and operation quick and simple, so you’ll also soon be enjoying the benefits of these additional features:

Integrated 10/100 Mbps LAN switch with Auto MDI/MDI-X support

Supports virtual server and DMZ (demilitarized zone)
