WEP encryption (Wired Equivalent Privacy) encodes data for sending using a key that you have defined. Once they reach the recipient, who uses the same key, the data are restored to the state before you sent them. Recipients who do not know this key cannot read the content of this data stream or only after a great deal of effort. There are two security levels for calculating the encryption key:
u 64-bit mode u 128-bit mode
WPA is a standard-conformant solution for greater security in wireless networks. WPA is meant to replace the existing WEP standard (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and offers more reliable encryption and authentication methods. With your Gigaset USB Adapter 108 you can use WPA encryption regardless of the operating system used. WPA encryption is particularly recommended where the highest security is required.
Range of wireless communication via a WLAN
Outdoors, the range is up to 300 m. Indoors, the maximum range is about 30 m. The operating environment, the nature of the rooms and building may reduce the range considerably. You can boost the range of your wireless network by placing a repeater, e.g. a Gigaset WLAN Repeater, at the limit of its range. The device also supports the XR functionality (eXtended Range). This can be used to increase the range. Die conversion to the XR mode is performed automatically at a respectively weak signal and when the partner station is also XR capable.

IP Address Shows the Internet Protocol address with which your PC is registered to the WLAN. As a rule the IP address is assigned to your PC by the DHCP server coordinating the PC's access to a network, in a WLAN for example the Access Point's DHCP server. Computer name entered for your PC during installation of the operating system. Shows the physical address of your network adapter. Shows the value of the subnet mask that defines address pools for the IP-address: For example, the value 255.255.255.0 shows that the network address is formed by the first three blocks of the IP address. The last block is for the PC address in this network. How many blocks of the IP address are used for PC addressing depends on the size of the network and hence the number of connected PCs. Shows the IP address of the system which provides the DHCP server for the automatic addressing and coordination of the connected PCs. Shows the IP address of the system that enables access to a superior network, for example a connection to the Internet.
Host Name MAC Address Subnet Mask
Gateway Renew IP Address
Click on Renew IP Address to connect your PC with a WLAN network.
The network adapter checks whether there is a DHCP server available within its radio range whose settings are compatible with those of the active configuration profile. If this is the case, the DHCP server responds to the query by assigning an IP address that your PC can use to exchange data over the new network.
Release IP Address
Click on Release IP Address to deregister your PC from the current WLAN.
Your PC is deregistered at the DHCP server and is no longer available to the WLAN connection partners. The DHCP server can assign the IP address allocated to your PC to a new connection partner.

Access Point An Access Point, such as the Gigaset SE 551 dsl/cable, is the centre of a wireless local network (WLAN). It handles the connection of the wireless linked network components and regulates the data traffic in the wireless network. The Access Point also serves as an interface to other networks, e.g. an already existing Ethernet LAN or via modem to the Internet. The operating mode of wireless networks with an Access Point is called Infrastructure mode. Ad-hoc mode Ad-hoc modus describes wireless local networks (WLAN) in which the network components set up a spontaneous network without an Access Point, e.g. several notebooks in a conference. All the network components are peers. They must have a wireless network adapter. Authentication Authentication checks the true identity of a PC against a particular property. Bridge A Bridge connects several network segments to form a joint network, e.g. to make a TCP/ IP network. The segments can have different physical characteristics, e.g. different linking such as Ethernet and wireless LANs. Linking individual segments via Bridges allows local networks of practically unlimited size. See also Gateway, Hub, Router, Switch Broadcast A Broadcast is a data packet not directed to a particular recipient but to all the network components on the network. The Gigaset SE 551 dsl/cable does not pass broadcast packets on; they always remain within the local network (LAN) it administers. DHCP Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol DHCP handles the automatic assignment of IP addresses to network components. It was developed because in large networks especially the Internet the defining of IP addresses is very complex as participants frequently move, drop out or new ones join. A DHCP Server automatically assigns the connected network components (DHCP clients) dynamic addresses from a defined IP pool range thus saving a great deal of configuration work. It also allows address pools to be used more effectively: Since not all participants are on the network at the same time, the same IP address can be assigned to different network components in succession as and when required. The Gigaset SE 551 dsl/cable includes a DHCP Server and so it can automatically assign IP addresses for the PCs on its local network. For certain PCs you can specify that their IP addresses are never changed.
DHCP Server See DHCP DNS Domain Name System DNS permits the assignment of IP addresses to computer or domain names that are easier to remember. A DNS server has to administer this information for each LAN with an Internet connection. As soon as a page on the Internet is called up, the browser obtains the corresponding IP address from the DNS Server so that it can establish the connection. On the Internet the assignment of domain names to IP addresses follows a hierarchical system. A local PC only knows the address of the local DNS Server. This in turn knows all the addresses of the PCs in the local network and the next higher DNS Server, which again knows addresses in its network and that of the next Name Server. DNS Server See DNS Domain name The domain name is the reference to one or more web servers on the Internet (e.g. gigaset.com). The domain name is mapped via the DNS service to the corresponding IP address. DSL Digital Subscriber Line DSL is a data transmission technology in which a connection to the Internet can be run at up to 1.5 Mbps over normal telephone lines. A DSL connection is provided by an Internet provider. It requires a DSL modem. Dynamic IP address A dynamic IP address is assigned to a network component automatically via DHCP. This means that the IP address of a network component can change with every login or at certain intervals. See also Static IP address Encryption Encryption protects confidential information against unauthorised access. With an encryption system data packets can be sent securely over a network. Ethernet Ethernet is the most widely-distributed network technology for local networks (LAN). It was defined by IEEE as standard 802.3. Ethernet uses a base band cable for data transmission with a transmission rate of 10 or 100 Mbps.
Gateway A Gateway is the system component that connects networks with completely different architectures (addressing, protocols, application interfaces etc.). Although it is not totally correct, the term is also used as a synonym for router. See also Bridge, Hub, Router, Switch Hub A Hub connects several network components in a star-topology network by sending all the data it receives from one network component to all the other network components. See also Bridge, Gateway, Router, Switch IEEE Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers IEEE is an international body for defining network standards, especially for standardising LAN technologies, transmission protocols and speeds, and wiring. IEEE 802.11 IEEE 802.11 is a standard for wireless 2.4-GHz band LANs. In Infrastructure mode, end devices can be connected to a base station (Access Point) or connect with each other spontaneously (Ad-hoc mode). Infrastructure mode Infrastructure mode is a way of operating wireless local networks (WLAN), in which an Access Point handles the data traffic. Network components cannot establish a direct connection with each other as is the case in Ad-hoc mode. Internet The Internet is a so-called wide-area network (WAN) linking several million users around the world. A number of protocols have been defined for exchanging data known by the name TCP/IP. All participants on the Internet are identifiable by IP addresses. Servers are addressed by a domain name (e.g. gigaset.com). Domain Name Service (DNS) is used to assign domain names to IP addresses. Among the most important Internet services are:
Subnet A subnetwork divides a network into smaller units. Subnet mask The subnet mask determines how many parts of the IP addresses of a network represent the network address and how many parts represent the computer address. The subnet mask administered by the Gigaset SE 551 dsl/cable is always 255.255.255.0. That means the first three parts of the IP address form the network address and the final part is used for assigning computer addresses. The first three parts of the IP address of all network components are in this case always the same. Super G Super G is an extension of the IEEE 802.11g mode. Channel bundling can be used to double the maximum transmission rate to 108 Mbps. Switch A Switch, like a Hub, is an element for linking different network segments or components. Unlike a Hub however, the Switch has its own intelligence that enables it to forward packets to only that subnet or network component they are meant for. See also Bridge, Gateway, Hub, Router TKIP Temporal Key Integrity Protocol TKIP is a further development of WEP encryption. Like WEP, TKIP encryption is based on the RC4 encryption algorithm. TKIP however generates new keys after every 10-Kbyte packet, thus meeting higher security requirements. UDP User Datagram Protocol UDP is a protocol of the TCP/IP protocol family that handles data transport between two communication partners (applications). Unlike TCP, UDP is a non-session based protocol. It does not establish a fixed connection. The data packets, called datagrams, are sent as a broadcast. The recipient is responsible for making sure the data is received. The sender is not notified about whether it is received or not. WAN Wide Area Network A WAN is a network that is not restricted to one particular area, such as the LAN. The Internet is the most frequently used WAN. A WAN is run by one or more public providers to enable private access. You access the Internet via an Internet provider.
WEP Wired Equivalent Privacy WEP is a security protocol defined in the IEEE 802.11 standard. In a WLAN, WEP encryption protects data against unauthorised access. WEP encryption uses the RC4 encryption algorithm. Wireless network See WLAN WLAN Wireless LAN Wireless LANs enable network components to communicate with a network using radio waves as the transport medium. A wireless LAN can be connected as an extension to a wired LAN or it can form the basis for a new network. The basic element of a wireless network is the cell. This is the area where the wireless communication takes place. A WLAN can be operated in Ad-hoc mode or Infrastructure mode. WLAN is currently specified in Standard IEEE 802.11. The Gigaset USB Adapter 108 complies with Standard 802.11g. WPA WPA is a standard-conformant solution for greater security in wireless networks. Intended to supersede the current WEP Standard (Wired Equivalent Privacy), WPA offers more reliable encryption and authentication methods. WPA-PSK WPA Pre-shared key WPA-PSK is a form of authentication in wireless network that allows users to define their own key. This key must then be used by all connection partners for WPA authentication. XR technology eXtended Range XR technology increases the range in a WLAN and thus enables better coverage of the desired range in home or office networks. When activated at the Access Point, this function can double or triple the range to the network adapters.

Please remember: The values recorded by your device for online time and transmitted data volume are only intended for your guidance and may differ from the exact values determined by your Internet provider.
The firewall functions of the Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable include various security functions for your local network. You can:
u protect your network against hacker attacks (see below), u block individual PCs' access to selected services or Internet sites (see page 56) or
restrict them by means of a schedule rule (see page 59). The firewall functions for Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable are activated and configured in the factory. If you wish to deactivate the firewall, carry out the following steps:
In the Advanced Settings Internet menu, select Firewall.
Select the required option. Click OK to apply the settings.
Configuring the Advanced Settings Attack detection
If the firewall functions of your Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable are activated, the device monitors and limits the access of incoming traffic via the DSL connection with a function called Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI). This allows the Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/ cable to identify and prevent certain types of attack from the Internet, such as Denialof-Service (DoS). DoS attacks are aimed at devices and networks with Internet connections. The aim is not so much to steal data but to paralyse the computer or network to such an extent that the network resources are no longer available. A typical hacker attack involves making a remote computer announce that it is acting for the paralysed device, for example, and receive the data meant for it. You can use the Attack Detection function to change the standard firewall settings and arrange to be notified by email about any attempted hacker attacks.
Schedule Rules If you have set up an access rule (see page 57) for certain services in the Internet. you can control it by means of a schedule rule. A schedule rule determines the period for which a defined access control is active. You can define several rules. A rule takes effect when you select Access Rules in the menu and activate it.
In the Access Control field under Schedule Rules, click on Edit.
Assign a name to the new rule under Comment. This name will then appear in the
selection list on the screen for the menu entry Access Rules. Click on Add to define a new rule. Select the day of the week from the list or else the option Every day. Enter the time for the rule to Begin and End. Click OK to apply the settings.
URL filter The URL filter allows you to block access to certain Internet sites or Internet domains or to limit access to certain Internet sites. Once you have entered the relevant URLs you can then create access rules that apply the URL filter for the selected clients in your network.
In the Advanced Settings Internet Firewall menu, select Access Control.
Select Filtering mode, i.e. whether you wish to allow or block access to the URLs in
Enter the required URL in the field. Click on Delete to delete an entry. Click on Add to create a new entry. Click OK to apply the settings.
Setting up the NAT function
Your Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable comes provided with the NAT (Network Address Translation) function. With Address Mapping, several users on your local network can access the Internet via one or more public IP addresses. In the default setting, all the local IP address are mapped to your router's public IP address. One feature of NAT is that data from the Internet is not allowed into your local network unless it has been explicitly requested by one of the PCs on that network. Most Internet applications run behind the NAT firewall without any problems. If you request Internet pages, for example, or send and receive e-mails, the request for data from the Internet comes from a PC on the local network and so the router allows the data through. The router opens exactly one port for the application. A port is an internal PC address through which the data is exchanged between a server on the Internet and a client on a PC in the local network. Communicating via a port follows the rules of a particular protocol (TCP or UDP). If an external application tries to send a call to a PC within the local network, the router will block it. There is no open port via which the data could enter the local network. Some applications, such as games on the Internet, require several links, i.e. several ports so that the players can communicate with each other. In addition, these applications must also be permitted to send requests from other users on the Internet to the user on the local network. These applications cannot work if Network Address Translation (NAT) has been activated. Using port forwarding (the forwarding of requests to particular ports) you make the router forward requests from the Internet for a certain service, e.g a game, to the appropriate port or ports on the PC on which the game is running. Port triggering is a specific variant of port forwarding. Unlike port forwarding, in this case the Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable forwards data from the set port block to the PC which has previously sent data to the Internet via a certain port (trigger port). This means that approval for the data transfer is not tied to one specific PC in your network, but only to the port numbers of the required Internet service. Where configuration is concerned, this means:
Select the Off option to deactivate SSID broadcast.
Transmission mode This function is only shown in the window if the Super G transmission mode is deactivated (see page 73). The standard IEEE 802.11g permits data transfer up to 54 Mbit/s, IEEE 802.11b up to 11 Mbit/s. For the best possible data transfer rates in your network select IEEE 802.11g only. To operate clients with older wireless network adapters in your network, select IEEE 802.11b/g (mixed).
Select the required transmission mode for your wireless network. Select the required sending power for your device.
We recommend that you select a sending power with a range to suit the spatial environment of your local network. A much greater range makes it easier to eavesdrop on your wireless data transmission.
Super G (108 Mbit/s) With the aid of channel bundling, the Super G transmission mode enables wireless data transfer up to 108 Mbps. The channel for wireless data transfer cannot be changed. You can only use Super G if this function is supported by at least one client in your wireless network. For the best possible data transfer rates, all clients in your LAN should support Super G. Please remember: If you activate Super G as the transmission mode, but it is not supported by all components in your wireless network, then for technical reasons the transfer rate in the network may be significantly lower than the possible maximum of 108 Mbit/s.
Select the mode for using Super G (108 Mbit/s) for your wireless network to increase the data transmission speed. You have a choice of two modes. Static: Wireless transmission is at a rate of just 108 Mbps. Clients that do not support this speed cannot connect to Access Point. Dynamic: If you select this transmission mode, the router accepts subscribers that communicate at different transfer rates and adjusts to the slowest client in the network. menu.
If you do not wish to use Super G (108 Mbit/s), select Disabled in the selection
XR (extended range) Activating XR enables data transfer even in the peripheral areas of your wireless network, albeit at very low data transfer rates. Conversion to XR mode occurs automatically when the signal is weak enough and if the partner station is also XR capable.
Activate or deactivate XR for your wireless network to increase the range. Click on OK to apply the settings.
In the Administration menu, select System Log to make the settings for the log.
Log level: Select how much information is to be contained in the system log. You
can choose between four levels: Critical: logs the most important information concerning possible problems in the functioning of your device Debugging:complete and detailed information about all your device's functions Warning and Informational are intermediate levels. Activate this function if you require automatic transmission of your device's system log to a system log server in your local network. Server address: Enter the IP address for the system log server. Server port: Enter the port of the system log server that is to be used to transmit the system log.

Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable / ENG / A31008-M1029-B101-2x-7619 / printer.fm / 03.11.2008
Installing the printer port for network printers
Your Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable is equipped with a USB port that you can use, for example, to connect a printer for use as the network printer.
A network printer is a printer on which you can print your documents without it being connected to your PC, e.g. to LPT1, the parallel interface. This has the advantage that you only need this printer once in your network. All PCs for which it is released can access it and work with it. Note: For multifunction devices (combination of printer, copier or fax) only the printer functionality is supported. At present the printer server can only be used with selected printers that support USB V2.0. You can obtain further information by contacting the hotline or else on the Internet (see page 127). In most cases a printer of this type is connected to another PC in the network. This does indeed offer the advantage referred to above, but it has serious disadvantages:
u The printer can only be used by others if the PC to which it is connected is switched
u The print job you send to the PC on which the printer depends reduces the perform-
ance (resources) of this PC. If you use the USB port on the Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable for your printer you have all the advantages of a network printer without the disadvantages referred to above: WLAN dsl/cable and the printer itself must be switched on, of course).
u The network, and consequently also the printer, are always ready (the Gigaset SE551 u As it is connected to the USB printer port on your Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable it
does not detract from the performance of any other PC in the network. To facilitate this option you must first set up a printer port on each PC wanting to use the network printer. A printer port is an interface on the PCs which forwards the print job to an IP address within the network. Once you have set up this port you must install the printer driver.
Installing a standard TCP/IP printer port under Windows XP/ 2000
You can use the standard TCP/IP port driver present in this operating system. Make sure that the Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable is connected and can be reached in the network. A printer need not be connected to the USB port on your Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable at this point. The following illustrations show installation on Windows XP. Installation on Windows 2000 is essentially the same.
Click on Start and in the window that opens click on Printers and Faxes.
Double click in the window that has opened on Add printer.
The wizard for installing a printer is opened.
In the Add Printer wizard, click on Next.
The printer port you are installing will behave like an additional parallel connection to the PC. For this reason you must click on the option button next to Local printer in this window. There must not be a tick in the square Plug and Play printer check box below. If there is a tick present, click on the box to remove it.
The welcome window for installing the port driver is opened.
Read the information it contains carefully. Click on Next.
The necessary files are copied to your PC and executed. Once all the data has been transferred to your PC you are prompted to complete the installation of the port driver.
Click on Finish. Reboot your PC.
You have now installed the printer port and effectively installed an extra printer interface in your PC. You must carry out this installation on every PC with Windows 98 or ME that is to use this printer in the network. You might possibly still have to correct the IP address for the printer.
Select Start Settings Printer, select the printer and right-click on the mouse to
open the pop-up menu.
Select Properties and open the Details tab. Select the port and click on Connection Settings. Change the IP address if necessary. It must be the same as that for the Gigaset SE551
Instructions for setting up a printer on the PC
Once you have installed the printer port you still cannot start printing. The printer port is nothing more than an additional interface on your PC, comparable with the USB port. It means that any printer you install on this port is also regarded as a local printer even though it is located in the network and possibly remote from you. You still need to connect and configure the printer to this port.
Connect the printer to the USB interface on your Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable.
The printer is installed in the same way as any other printer:
Go through Start Settings Printer and click on New Printer. In the window that opens, click on Next. Proceed as instructed by the printer installation wizard. Please note:
In the window in which you are prompted to specify the location of the printer you should select Local Printer (usually the default setting).
Then click on Next. Continue to install the printer. Select your printer and click on Next. When the window appears in which you are prompted to enter the type of connection, double click on the port name Gigaset_Druckerport.
Then continue to install the printer and finish the installation.
Note: The Gigaset SE551 WLAN dsl/cable's printer server does not work bidirectionally. It does not evaluate any of the printer's response messages. For this reason please make sure that your printer is also configured unidirectionally.
