The WPNT834 router is equipped with several features designed to maintain security, as described in this section. Computers Hidden by NAT. NAT opens a temporary path to the Internet for requests originating from the local network. Requests originating from outside the LAN are discarded, preventing users outside the LAN from finding and directly accessing the computers on the LAN.
Port Forwarding with NAT. Although NAT prevents Internet locations from directly accessing the computers on the LAN, the router allows you to direct incoming traffic to specific computers based on the service port number of the incoming request, or to one designated DMZ host computer. You can specify forwarding of single ports or ranges of ports.
Autosensing Ethernet Connections with Auto Uplink
With its internal 4-port 10/100 switch, the WPNT834 can connect to either a 10 Mbps standard Ethernet network or a 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet network. Both the LAN and WAN interfaces are autosensing and capable of full-duplex or half-duplex operation. The router incorporates Auto UplinkTM technology. Each Ethernet port will automatically sense whether the Ethernet cable plugged into the port should have a normal connection such as to a computer or an uplink connection such as to a switch or hub. That port will then configure itself to the correct configuration. This feature also eliminates the need to worry about crossover cables, as Auto Uplink will accommodate either type of cable to make the right connection.
Extensive Protocol Support
The WPNT834 router supports the Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and Routing Information Protocol (RIP). For further information about TCP/IP, see Wireless Communications in Appendix B. IP Address Sharing by NAT. The WPNT834 router allows several networked computers to share an Internet account using only a single IP address, which your Internet service provider (ISP) may statically or dynamically assign. This technique, known as NAT, allows the use of an inexpensive singleuser ISP account. Automatic Configuration of Attached Computers by DHCP. The WPNT834 router dynamically assigns network configuration information, including IP, gateway, and domain name server (DNS) addresses, to attached computers on the LAN using the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). This feature greatly simplifies configuration of computers on your local network. DNS Proxy. When DHCP is enabled and no DNS addresses are specified, the router provides its own address as a DNS server to the attached computers. The router obtains actual DNS addresses from the ISP during connection setup and forwards DNS requests from the LAN.

Chapter 3 Connecting the Router to the Internet
This chapter describes how to set up the router on your local area network (LAN) and connect to the Internet. You will find out how to configure your RangeMax 240 Wireless Router WPNT834 for Internet access using the Setup Wizard, or how to manually configure your Internet connection. Follow these instructions to set up your router.
Prepare to Install Your Wireless Router
Observe the wireless placement and range guidelines in Observing Performance, Placement, and Range Guidelines on page 4-1. For Cable Modem Service: When you perform the wireless router setup steps, be sure to use the computer you first registered with your cable ISP. For DSL Service: You may need information such as the DSL login name/e-mail address and password in order to complete the wireless router setup.
Before proceeding with the wireless router installation, familiarize yourself with the contents of the NETGEAR RangeMax 240 Wireless Router WPNT834 Resource CD, especially this manual and the animated tutorials for configuring networking on PCs.

Connecting the Router to the Internet
Now, Set Up a Computer for Wireless Connectivity
You are now connected to the Internet and the wireless feature of the wireless router is enabled! Next, configure your wireless computer. 1. Configure the computers Wireless Adapter settings.
NETGEAR, Inc. wireless adapters display a list of available wireless networks and, when wireless security is disabled, you simply choose yours from the list and connect. For a non-NETGEAR wireless adapter, configure it to match your settings exactly. If you changed the default Network Name (SSID), be sure to use the correct Network Name (SSID) you set in the wireless router.
WIRELESS FEATURE Network Name (SSID) WEP Security DEFAULT SETTING NETGEAR Disabled
Observing Performance, Placement, and Range Guidelines
The operating distance or range of your wireless connection can vary significantly based on the physical placement of the wireless firewall. The latency, data throughput performance, and notebook power consumption of wireless adapters also vary depending on your configuration choices. Note: Failure to follow these guidelines can result in significant performance degradation or inability to wirelessly connect to the router. For complete range and performance specifications, please see Appendix A, Technical Specifications. For best results, place your firewall: Near the center of the area in which your computers will operate. In an elevated location such as a high shelf where the wirelessly connected computers have line-of-sight access (even if through walls). Away from sources of interference, such as computers, microwaves, and 2.4 GHz cordless phones. Away from large metal surfaces. The time it takes to establish a wireless connection can vary depending on both your security settings and placement. WEP connections can take slightly longer to establish. Also, WEP and WPA-PSK encryption can consume more battery power on a notebook computer.
Wireless Configuration v1.0, November 2005
Implementing Appropriate Wireless Security
Note: Indoors, computers can connect over 802.11b/g wireless networks at ranges of up to 300 feet. Such distances can allow for others outside of your immediate area to access your network. Unlike wired network data, your wireless data transmissions can be received well beyond your walls by anyone with a compatible adapter. For this reason, use the security features of your wireless equipment. The WPNT834 router provides highly effective security features which are covered in detail in this chapter. Deploy the security features appropriate to your needs.
There are several ways you can enhance the security of your wireless network. Restrict Access Based on MAC address. You can restrict access to only trusted computers so that unknown computers cannot wirelessly connect to the WPNT834. MAC address filtering adds an obstacle against unwanted access to your network, but the data broadcast over the wireless link is fully exposed. Turn Off the Broadcast of the Wireless Network Name SSID. If you disable broadcast of the SSID, only devices that have the correct SSID can connect. This nullifies the wireless network discovery feature of some products such as Windows XP, but the data is still fully exposed to a determined snoop using specialized test equipment like wireless sniffers. WEP. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) data encryption provides data security. WEP Shared Key authentication and WEP data encryption block all but the most determined eavesdropper.
If WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK Authentication is Used: Passphrase: ______________________________ These characters are case sensitive. Enter a word or group of printable characters. When you use WPA-PSK, the other devices in the network will not connect unless they are set to WPA-PSK as well and are configured with the correct Passphrase. Similarly, when you use WPA2-PSK, the other devices in the network will not connect unless they are aslo set to WPA2-PSK and are configured with the correct Passphrase.
Use the procedures described in the following sections to configure the WPNT834. Store this information in a safe place.
Default Factory Settings
When you first receive your WPNT834, the default factory settings are in effect, as shown below. You can restore these defaults with the Factory Default Restore button on the rear panel. After you install the WPNT834 router, use the procedures below to customize any of the settings to better meet your networking needs.

DEFAULT FACTORY SETTINGS Enabled All wireless stations allowed Enabled NETGEAR 11 Auto 108 Automatic Disabled Enabled 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.254
How to Set Up and Test Basic Wireless Connectivity
Note: If you use a wireless computer to configure WPA settings, you will be disconnected when you click Apply. Reconfigure your wireless adapter to match the new settings or access the wireless router from a wired computer to make any further changes. Follow the instructions below to set up and test basic wireless connectivity. Once you have established basic wireless connectivity, you can enable security settings appropriate to your needs. 1. Log in to the WPNT834 firewall at its default LAN address of http://www.routerlogin.net (or http://192.168.1.1) with its default user name of admin and default password of password, or using whatever LAN address and password you have set up.
4-8 v1.0, November 2005
2. Click Wireless Settings in the main menu of the WPNT834 firewall.
3. Choose a suitable descriptive name for the wireless network name (SSID). In the SSID box, enter a value of up to 32 alphanumeric characters. The default SSID is NETGEAR. Note: The SSID is case sensitive; NETGEAR is not the same as nETgear. Also, the SSID of any wireless access adapters must match the SSID you configure in the RangeMax 240 Wireless Router WPNT834. If they do not match, you will not get a wireless connection to the WPNT834. 4. Set the Region. Select the region in which the wireless interface will operate. 5. Set the Channel. The default channel is 11. This field determines which operating frequency is used. It should not be necessary to change the wireless channel unless you notice interference problems with another nearby wireless router or access point. Select a channel that is not being used by any other wireless networks within several hundred feet of your firewall. For more information on the wireless channel frequencies, see Wireless Communications in Appendix B.
How to Configure WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK Wireless Security
Note: Not all wireless adapters support WPA. Furthermore, client software is also required. Windows XP and Windows 2000 with Service Pack 3 do include WPA support. Nevertheless, the wireless adapter hardware and driver must also support WPA. For instructions on configuring wireless computers or PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) for WPA-PSK security, consult the documentation for the product you are using. To configure WPA-PSK, follow these steps: 1. Click Wireless Settings in the Setup section of the main menu and select one of the WPAPSK or WPA2-PSK options for the Security Type. The third option (WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WP2-PSK [AES]) is the most flexible, since it allows clients using either WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK.
2. Enter a word or group of 8-63 printable characters in the Passphrase box. 3. Click Apply to save your settings.

Chapter 7 Troubleshooting
This chapter gives information about troubleshooting your RangeMax 240 Wireless Router WPNT834. After each problem description, instructions are provided to help you diagnose and solve the problem.
After you turn on power to the router, the following sequence of events should occur: 1. When power is first applied, verify that the Power light 2. After approximately 10 seconds, verify that: a. The power light is solid green. b. The LAN port lights are lit for any local ports that are connected. c. The Internet port light is lit. d. A port light is lit, to indicate a link has been established to the connected device. If a LAN port is connected to a 100 Mbps device, verify that the ports light is green. If the port is connected to a 10 Mbps device, the light is amber. If any of the above conditions does not occur, see the appropriate following section. is on.
Power Light Not On
If the Power and other lights are off when your router is turned on: Make sure that the power cord is properly connected to your router and that the power supply adapter is properly connected to a functioning power outlet. Check that you are using the 12V DC 1A power adapter that NETGEAR supplies for this product.
If the error persists, you have a hardware problem and should contact technical support.
Troubleshooting v1.0, November 2005
Lights Never Turn Off
When the router is turned on, the lights turns on for about 10 seconds and then turn off. If all the lights stay on, there is a fault within the router. If all lights are still on one minute after power up: Cycle the power to see if the router recovers. Clear the routers configuration to factory defaults. This sets the routers IP address to 192.168.1.1. The procedure is explained in Restoring the Default Configuration and Password on page 7-7.
If the error persists, you might have a hardware problem and should contact technical support.
LAN or WAN Port Lights Not On
If either the LAN lights or Internet light do not light when the Ethernet connection is made, check the following: Make sure that the Ethernet cable connections are secure at the router and at the hub or workstation. Make sure that power is turned on to the connected hub or workstation. Be sure you are using the correct cable: When connecting the routers Internet port to a cable or DSL modem, use the cable that was supplied with the cable or DSL modem. This cable could be a standard straightthrough Ethernet cable or an Ethernet crossover cable.
7-4 v1.0, November 2005
Inform your ISP that you have bought a new network device, and ask them to use the routers MAC address. OR Configure your router to spoof your computers MAC address. This can be done in the Basic Settings menu. For more information, see How to Bypass the Configuration Assistant on page 3-8. If your router can obtain an IP address, but your computer is unable to load any Web pages from the Internet: Your computer may not recognize any DNS server addresses. A DNS server is a host on the Internet that translates Internet names (such as www addresses) to numeric IP addresses. Typically your ISP will provide the addresses of one or two DNS servers for your use. If you entered a DNS address during the routers configuration, reboot your computer and verify the DNS address as described in Preparing a Computer for Network Access in Appendix B. Alternatively, you may configure your computer manually with DNS addresses, as explained in your operating system documentation. Your computer may not have the router configured as its TCP/IP gateway. If your computer obtains its information from the router by DHCP, reboot the computer and verify the gateway address as described in Preparing a Computer for Network Access in Appendix B.
Troubleshooting a TCP/IP Network Using a Ping Utility
Most TCP/IP terminal devices and routers contain a ping utility that sends an echo request packet to the designated device. The device then responds with an echo reply. Troubleshooting a TCP/IP network is made very easy by using the ping utility in your computer or workstation.
Testing the LAN Path to Your Router
You can ping the router from your computer to verify that the LAN path to your router is set up correctly. To ping the router from a running Windows 95 or later: 1. From the Windows toolbar, click on the Start button and select Run. 2. In the field provided, type Ping followed by the IP address of the router, as in this example:
3. Click OK. You should see a message like this one:
Pinging <IP address> with 32 bytes of data
If the path is working, you see this message:
Reply from < IP address >: bytes=32 time=NN ms TTL=xxx

Note: The MAC address is a twelve character key containing the characters 0-9, A-F only and separated by colons (for example., 00:09:AB:CD:EF:01) that can usually be found on the bottom of the wireless device.
Configuring Port Triggering and Port Forwarding
Port Triggering is an advanced feature that can be used to easily enable gaming and other Internet applications. Port Forwarding is typically used to enable similar functionality, but it is static and has some limitations. Note: If you use applications such as multi-player gaming, peer-to-peer connections, real time communications such as instant messaging, or remote assistance (a feature in Windows XP), you should also enable UPnP according to the instructions at Using Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) on page 8-22. Port Triggering opens an incoming port temporarily and does not require the server on the Internet to track your IP address if it is changed by DHCP, for example. Port Triggering monitors outbound traffic. When the router detects traffic on the specified outbound port, it remembers the IP address of the computer that sent the data and triggers the incoming port. Incoming traffic on the triggered port is then forwarded to the triggering computer. Using the Port Triggering page, you can make local computers or servers available to the Internet for different services (for example, FTP or HTTP), to play Internet games (like Quake III), or to use Internet applications (like CUseeMe). Port forwarding is designed for FTP, Web Server or other server-based services. Once port forwarding is set up, requests from the Internet will be forwarded to the proper server. Port triggering will only allow requests from the Internet after a designated port is 'triggered'. Port triggering applies to chat and Internet games.
8-8 v1.0, November 2005
2. From the Service Name box, select the service or game that you will host on your network. If the service does not appear in the list, see the following section, Adding a Custom Service. 3. Enter the IP address of the local server in the corresponding Server IP Address box. 4. Click the Add button.
Adding a Custom Service
To define a service, game or application that does not appear in the Service Name list, you must determine what port numbers the service will use. For this information, you may need to contact the manufacturer of the program that you wish to use. When you have the port number information, follow these steps: 1. Select Port Forwarding / Port Triggering from the Advanced Section of the main menu, as described in the preceding section. 2. Click the Add Custom Service button.
3. Type the service name in the Service Name box. 4. Type the beginning port number in the Starting Port box. If the application uses only a single port; type the same port number in the Ending Port box. If the application uses a range of ports; type the ending port number of the range in the Ending Port box.
5. Type the IP address of the computer in the Server IP Address box. 6. Click Apply to save your changes.
Editing or Deleting a Port Forwarding Entry
To edit or delete a Port Forwarding entry, follow these steps. 1. In the table, select the button next to the service name. 2. Click the Edit Service or Delete Service button.
Local Web and FTP Server Example
If a local computer with a private IP address of 192.168.1.33 acts as a Web and FTP server, configure the Ports menu to forward HTTP (port 80) and FTP (port 21) to local address 192.168.1.33 In order for a remote user to access this server from the Internet, the remote user must know the IP address that has been assigned by your ISP. If this address is 172.16.1.23, for example, an Internet user can access your Web server by directing the browser to http://172.16.1.23. The assigned IP address can be found in the Router Status Menu, where it is shown as the WAN IP Address. Some considerations for this application are: If your accounts IP address is assigned dynamically by your ISP, the IP address may change periodically as the DHCP lease expires. If the IP address of the local computer is assigned by DHCP, it may change when the computer is rebooted. To avoid this, you can manually configure the computer to use a fixed address. Local computers must access the local server using the computers local LAN address (192.168.1.33 in this example). Attempts by local computers to access the server using the external IP address (172.16.1.23 in this example) will fail.
8-14 v1.0, November 2005 Advanced Configuration of the Router
Using the Router as a DHCP server
By default, the router functions as a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server, allowing it to assign IP, DNS server, and default gateway addresses to all computers connected to the router's LAN. The assigned default gateway address is the LAN address of the router. The router assigns IP addresses to the attached computers from a pool of addresses specified in this menu. Each pool address is tested before it is assigned to avoid duplicate addresses on the LAN. For most applications, the default DHCP and TCP/IP settings of the router are satisfactory. See Wireless Communications in Appendix B for an explanation of DHCP and information about how to assign IP addresses for your network. Specify the pool of IP addresses to be assigned by setting the Starting IP Address and Ending IP Address. These addresses should be part of the same IP address subnet as the routers LAN IP address. Using the default addressing scheme, you should define a range between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.254, although you may wish to save part of the range for devices with fixed addresses. The router delivers the following parameters to any LAN device that requests DHCP: An IP Address from the range you have defined Subnet Mask Gateway IP Address (the routers LAN IP address) Primary DNS Server (if you entered a Primary DNS address in the Basic Settings menu; otherwise, the routers LAN IP address) Secondary DNS Server (if you entered a Secondary DNS address in the Basic Settings menu)
To select another device on your network as the DHCP server, or to manually configure the network settings of all of your computers, clear the Use Router as DHCP Server check box. Otherwise, leave it checked.
Using Address Reservation
When you specify a reserved IP address for a computer on the LAN, that computer will always receive the same IP address each time it accesses the routers DHCP server. Reserved IP addresses should be assigned to computers or servers that require permanent IP settings. To reserve an IP address: 1. Click the Add button. 2. In the IP Address box, type the IP address to assign to the computer or server. (choose an IP address from the routers LAN subnet, such as 192.168.1.x)
Advanced Configuration of the Router v1.0, November 2005 8-15
3. Type the MAC Address of the computer or server. Tip: If the computer is already present on your network, you can copy its MAC address from the Attached Devices menu and paste it here. 4. Click Apply to enter the reserved address into the table. Note: The reserved address is not assigned until the next time the computer contacts the router's DHCP server. Reboot the computer or access its IP configuration and force a DHCP release and renew. To edit or delete a reserved address entry: 1. Click the button next to the reserved address you want to edit or delete. 2. Click Edit or Delete.
