ABOUT THEWIRELESS

BARRICADEROUTER

Congratulations on your purchase of the Wireless Barricade™ Broadband Router. SMC is proud to provide you with a powerful yet simple communication device for connecting your local area network (LAN) to the Internet.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION !

For DSL-Userwithout a flat rate contract.

With your DSL-routeryou have received a device of high quality, which allows you fast and easy access to the Internet.

The factory default settings of this router have been done in a way to provide you with uninterrupted access and use of the Internet. With this background for cost reasons we recommend that you enter into a "flat rate" - contract with your DSL-lineprovider.

Why should you do that?

Please consider that a router, an entirely independent working device, does not switch off automatically when shutting off your PC!

You may trigger such an automatic shut-offby setting a so called"idle-time"(for details consult your manual at PPPoE or PPTP WAN access configuration). Depending at the set time (1 to 5 min) the router cuts theDSL-linkwhen idle, indeed. But this still does not provide for 100% security.

About the Wireless Barricade Router

This disconnect only happens if there are no more open requests received from either the LAN or the WAN side (here this can be requests from the internet, i.e. initiated through the use of so called file sharing programs like eMule, eDonkey, etc.) that keep the router active.

In order to counter such incalculable activity and protect yourself from higher than expected on-linecosts we therefore recommend again aflat-ratecontract for yourDSL-connection.

The only safe alternative: Pull the plug!

That is to disconnect your router from the mains.

Please feel free to contact our SMC-hotlineif you have further questions.

** flat-rateis an offer of yourDSL-lineprovider, which gives you timely unlimited access to the Internet at a defined(flat-)rate.

Installing the Wireless Barricade Router

Immediately inform your dealer in the event of any incorrect, missing or damaged parts. If possible, please retain the carton and original packing materials in case there is a need to return the product.

Hardware Description

The Wireless Barricade can be connected to the Internet using its RJ-45WAN port . It can be connected directly to your PC or to a local area network using any of the Fast Ethernet LAN ports.

Access speed to the Internet depends on your service type. Full-rateADSL can provide up to 8 Mbps downstream and 640 Kbps upstream. G.lite (or splitterless) ADSL provides up to

1.5 Mbps downstream and 512 Kbps upstream. Cable modems can provide up to 36 Mbps downstream and 2 Mbps upstream. ISDN can provide up to 128 Kbps when using two bearer channels. PSTN analog connections can now run up to 56 Kbps. However, you should note that the actual rate provided by specific service providers may vary dramatically from these upper limits.

Although access speed to the Internet is determined by the modem type connected to your Router, data passing between devices connected to your local area network can run up to 100 Mbps over the Fast Ethernet ports.

The Wireless Barricade includes an LED display on the front panel for system power and port indications that simplifies installation and network troubleshooting. It also provides 4 RJ-45LAN ports on the front panel, as well as oneRJ-45WAN port.Full-duplexcommunications allow data to be sent and received simultaneously, doubling the effective throughput.
