Introduction

The NexIP Internet Sharing Station is the most cost-effective Internet access solution available today for users. With only a single Internet account and a low cost dial-up line, it lets a small network of more than 2 desktop computers to share the vast resource available on the Internet simultaneously. Compare to traditional leased-line router configuration, the Internet Sharing Station is not only easier to use, it reduces ownership and maintenance cost dramatically with its innovative architecture. In dial-up configuration, it connects to remote Internet Service Provider (ISP) network automatically only when local users tried to access remote hosts on the Internet. To further improve performance when multiple users access the Internet at the same time, the Internet Sharing Station provides additional asynchronous ports with dial-on-demand functions. The Internet Sharing Station will dial up additional connections if the primary line is congested, so the Internet access performance can be improved instantly.

Install the unit

This unit can be placed on a flat surface or mounted on a metallic surface or partition. Please comply with the following steps for proper installation.

Desktop Installation

yCarefully take out the unit from its packaging

yYou will find four self-adhesive rubber feet attached on the bottom of the unit, which provide space for ventilation and cushion the unit needed against vibrations. Place the unit directly on your desk.

Magnetic Mounting Installation

yInside each of the four rubber feet, you will find a magnetic ring. Adhere this unit to steel flat surface using the magnets on the bottom of the unit.

Wall Mounting Installation

yThere is a trough on the bottom of the unit, which is used for wall mounting.

yUse two screws to mount the mounting track plate onto the wall.

yPut the unit over the mounting track plate, and slide it to the suitable position.

1. Connecting the Ethernet cable.

Connect a network cable to the Internet Sharing Station’s RJ-45 or BNC port. This unit supports two types of Ethernet cables: Thin Ethernet (10BASE2, BNC connector) and Twisted Pair Ethernet (10BASE-T, RJ-45 connector). During power up, the unit automatically detects the type of network cable and adjusts to that environment.

Note: Please do NOT use both of BNC and RJ-45 connections simultaneously.

2.Connect your modem.

Connect an external modem or ISDN TA, using a standard serial cable, to the WAN port on the back of the unit and to a phone line

Notes:

z Turn off the power before connecting or disconnecting modems. z You can connect up to two modems to the Internet Sharing Station

3.Connect the power adapter.

Connect the power adapter to the units. The Power LED should light.

4.Connect the Internet Sharing Station and all of your PCs to hub

Before proceeding this step, make sure each of your PCs has a network interface card installed.

Configuring the Internet Sharing Station

The easiest way to configure the Internet Sharing Station is to use your existing Web browser. Once you have set up your PC and installed web browser, you can launch your browser and view web pages from the Internet Sharing Station.

Setting up PC to configure the web

Before using browser to find the web pages from Internet Sharing Station, you have to manually configure your PC for TCP/IP networking. The DHCP server function of Internet Sharing Station is enabled defaultly, your PCs should be set to obtain an IP address automatically. This procedure is described in the following section.

To configure a Windows NT 3.51 system

1.Open the Main group in Program Manager.

2.Open the Control Panel and open the Network icon.

3.Select TCP/IP Protocol within the Installed Network Software Window or install it if necessary. See your Windows documentation.

4.Click the Configure button and select the Adapter Type.

5.Check the Enable Automatic DHCP Configuration checkbox.

6.Type your computer name in the Host name box. Click OK to close the TCP/IP configuration window.

7.Click OK to close and restart your computer.

To configure a Windows NT 4.0 system

1.Right-click Network Neighborhood and click Properties.

2.Click the Protocols tab and select the TCP/IP Protocol in the list. If TCP/IP does not appear, install it. See your Windows documentation.

3.Click the Properties button and select the adapter type.

4.Make sure “Obtain an IP Address from A DHCP Server” is selected.

5.Type your computer name in the Host name box.

6.Click OK on the bottom of the TCP/IP window.

7.Click OK to close and restart your computer.

To configure a Windows 95/98 system

1.Right-click Network Neighborhood.

2.Click Properties on the pop-up menu.

3.Click the Configuration tab and select the TCP/IP networking component and click Properties.

4.Make sure “Obtain an IP Address Automatically” is selected.

5.Select the DNS Configuration tab, and select Disable DNS.

6.Select the Gateway tab and remove any addresses. Click OK.

7.Click OK to close the Network Control window.

8.Click OK to close and restart your computer.

To configure other systems

See the documentation for your operating system and set the system up for TCP/IP. Configure the system to be a DHCP client. If the system doesn’t support DHCP, set an IP address that is not conflicted to that system and in the range from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.252.

Configuring the Internet Sharing Station

After you finish setting up and restart your computer, you can open web browser, type the following in the Location (or Address) window, and press Enter.

http://192.168.0.254

You should then see the first screen, which will prompt you for a password. Default password is “admin”, just type admin, then click OK to continue to the configure screen.

Quick Configuration

Simply connect modem to the WAN 1 port of the Internet Sharing Station, and complete all settings on this first page, then restart the Internet Sharing Station, and then restart all of the PCs, you are ready to access Internet.
