INTRODUCTION

Thank you for purchasing the INTELLINET NETWORK SOLUTIONS4-Port Broadband Router, Model 524957.

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.

Keeping intruders out of your network can be a challenge, but this feature-rich router is designed to make that task easier. It includes a true firewall that secures your network against hackers. With Network Address 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)

1 HARDWARE INSTALLATION

Using the included RJ45 Ethernet cable (and more, as needed), make your 4-Port Broadband Router network connections by following the steps below and referring to the Port and LED descriptions (presented from left to right).

1.Turn off all devices to be incorporated into the network, including any PCs, switches/hubs, the modem and the router.

2.Connect the LAN or Ethernet network port of the cable/DSL modem to the router’s WAN port.

3.Connect PCs (and any switch/hub used to expand the network) to the router’s LAN ports.

4.Turn on the cable/DSL modem.

5.Use the included power adapter to connect the router to an AC outlet.

6.Turn on the PC you’ll be using to configure the router.

WAN — This 10/100Mbps port connects the cable/DSL modem. PC1-4 — These four LAN ports connect networked devices, such as

PCs, print servers and remote hard drives. If you connect a LAN port to a switch or hub, check that both the device’s Power LED and the router’s corresponding PC/LAN LED (see below) light to confirm the connection.

Reset — Push this recessed button to clear all established router configuration settings and reset to the factory default settings. See Section 3: Restore Defaults.

PWR — This jack is for the included external 9 V DC, 500 mA power adapter.

1.2 Front Panel LEDs

PWR — This lights when the router is turned on.

4-1 — These correspond to the four LAN ports on the router’s rear panel. Lighted indicates a successful connection; blinking means data is being transmitted or received through that port.

WAN — Lighted indicates a successful Internet connection; blinking indicates data is being transmitted or received through that port.

2 NETWORK SETTINGS

To configure the router using a Web browser-based configuration utility, at least one properly configured computer needs to be connected to the router via the Ethernet. This 4-Port Broadband Router is configured with the default IP address of 192.168.2.1 and subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, and its DHCP server is enabled by default.

At this point, you can proceed to Section 2.3: Logging In to the Web Browser. If you encounter problems from there, return here and follow the steps in Sections 2.1: IP Address Setup and 2.2: Confirming the

Connection.

For Windows 2000 / XP / Vista / 7: Click “Start,” then “Run”; enter

“cmd” and click “OK.”

If the Command window returns something similar to the lines below, the connection between the router and your computer has been successfully established.
