How to Configure WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK Security
A high performance client like the NETGEAR WN511B must connect using WPA2-PSK in order to achieve maximum performance. Wireless clients that connect to this router using WPA-PSK will run at no more than 802.11g speed. This option allows wireless clients to use either encryption method. Note: Not all wireless adapters support WPA. Furthermore, client software is required on the client. Windows XP and Windows 2000 with Service Pack 3 do include the client software that supports WPA. Nevertheless, the wireless adapter hardware and driver must also support WPA. Consult the product document for your wireless adapter and WPA client software for instructions on configuring WPA settings. To configure WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK, follow these steps: 1. Log in at the default LAN address of http://192.168.0.1, with the default user name of admin and default password of password, or using whatever LAN address and password you have set up. 2. Click Wireless Settings in the Setup section of the main menu of the DG834N.

3. Choose the WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] radio button. The WPA-PSK menu will open. 4. Enter the pre-shared key in the Passphrase field using between 8 and 63 characters. 5. Click Apply to save your settings. If the wireless network mode is set to g and b, you have the option of selecting WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK only.
Choosing Alternative Authentication and Encryption Methods
Note: Alternative authentication and encryption methods are only available if you select g and b as the wireless network mode in the Wireless Settings menu.
Understanding WEP Authentication and Security Encryption
Restricting wireless access prevents intruders from connecting to your network. However, the wireless data transmissions are still vulnerable to snooping. Using the WEP data encryption settings described below will prevent a determined intruder from eavesdropping on your wireless data communications. Also, if you are using the Internet for such activities as purchases or banking, those Internet sites use another level of highly secure encryption called SSL. You can tell if a web site is using SSL because the web address begins with HTTPS rather than HTTP. Authentication Type Selection. The DG834N RangeMaxTM NEXT Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router lets you select the following wireless authentication schemes.
2-12 v1.0, May 2006 Wireless Configuration
Automatic Open System
Please refer to Preparing a Computer for Network Access: in Appendix B for a full explanation of each of these options, as defined by the IEEE 802.11g wireless communication standard. Encryption Choices. Please refer to Preparing a Computer for Network Access: in Appendix B for a full explanation of each of the following choices, as defined by the IEEE 802.11g wireless communication standard. Choose the encryption strength from the drop-down list: 64 or 128 bit WEP. When 64 Bit WEP or 128 Bit WEP is selected, WEP encryption will be applied. If WEP is enabled, you can manually or automatically program the four data encryption keys. These values must be identical on all computers and access points in your network. There are two methods for creating WEP encryption keys: Passphrase. Enter a word or group of printable characters in the Passphrase box and click the Generate button. Manual. 64-bit WEP: Enter 10 hexadecimal digits (any combination of 0-9, a-f, or A-F). 128-bit WEP: Enter 26 hexadecimal digits (any combination of 0-9, a-f, or A-F).
Select the radio button for the key you want to make active. How to Configure WEP To configure WEP data encryption, follow these steps: 1.

9. Click Apply to save your settings. Note: When configuring the wireless modem router from a wireless computer, if you configure WEP settings, you will lose your wireless connection when you click Apply. You must then either configure your wireless adapter to match the wireless modem router WEP settings or access the wireless modem router from a wired computer to make any further changes.
How to Configure WPE-802.1x or WPE2-802.1x This version of WPA requires the use of a Radius server for authentication. Each user (Wireless Client) must have a "user" login on the Radius Server, and the wireless modem router must have a "client" login on the Radius server. Data transmissions are encrypted using a key that is automatically generated. 1. Log in to the wireless modem router at its default LAN address of http://192.168.0.1 with its default user name of admin and default password of password, or using whatever LAN address and password you have set up. 2. Click the Wireless Settings link in the main menu of the wireless modem router. 3. In the Security Options portion of the page, select WPE-802.1x or WPE2-802.1x.

In the Radius Server Name/IP Address text box, enter the name or IP address of the Radius Server on your LAN. This is a required field. 5. In the Radius Port field, enter the port number used for connections to the Radius server. 6. In the Radius Shared Key field, enter the desired value for the Radius shared key. This key enables the wireless modem router to log in to the Radius server and must match the client login value used on the Radius server.
For security, the administrator's login to the wireless modem router configuration will timeout after a period of inactivity. To change the login timeout period: 1. In the Set Password menu, type a number in Administrator login times out field. The suggested default value is 5 minutes. 2. Click Apply to save your changes or click Cancel to keep the current period.
Configuring Basic Firewall Services
Basic firewall services you can configure include access blocking and scheduling of firewall security. These topics are presented below.
3-2 v1.0, May 2006
Protecting Your Network
Blocking Keywords, Sites, and Services
The wireless modem router provides a variety of options for blocking Internet based content and communications services. With its content filtering feature, the RangeMax NEXT Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router prevents objectionable content from reaching your PCs. The wireless modem router allows you to control access to Internet content by screening for keywords within Web addresses. Key content filtering options include: Keyword blocking of HTTP traffic. Outbound Service Blocking limits access from your LAN to Internet locations or services that you specify as off-limits. Denial of Service (DoS) protection. Automatically detects and thwarts Denial of Service (DoS) attacks such as Ping of Death, SYN Flood, LAND Attack and IP Spoofing. Blocking unwanted traffic from the Internet to your LAN.
The section below explains how to configure your wireless modem router to perform these
How to Block Keywords and Sites
The RangeMax NEXT Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router allows you to restrict access to Internet content based on functions such as Web addresses and Web address keywords. 1. Log in to the wireless modem router at its default LAN address of http://192.168.0.1 with its default User Name of admin, default password of password, or using whatever Password and LAN address you may have previously set for the wireless modem router.
2. Select the Block Sites link of the Security menu.
3. To enable keyword blocking, select one of the following: Per Scheduleto turn on keyword blocking according to the settings on the Schedule page. Alwaysto turn on keyword blocking all of the time, independent of the Schedule page.
4. Enter a keyword or domain in the Keyword box, click Add Keyword, then click Apply. Some examples of Keyword application follow: If the keyword XXX is specified, the URL <http://www.badstuff.com/xxx.html> is blocked. If the keyword.com is specified, only Web sites with other domain suffixes (such as.edu or.gov) can be viewed. Enter the keyword. to block all Internet browsing access.
Up to 32 entries are supported in the Keyword list. 5. To delete a keyword or domain, select it from the list, click Delete Keyword, then click Apply. 6. To specify a trusted user, enter that computers IP address in the Trusted IP Address box and click Apply.
3-6 v1.0, May 2006
Remember that allowing inbound services opens holes in your firewall. Only enable those ports that are necessary for your network. Following are two application examples of inbound rules: Inbound Rule Example: A Local Public Web Server If you host a public Web server on your local network, you can define a rule to allow inbound Web (HTTP) requests from any outside IP address to the IP address of your Web server at any time of day. This rule is shown in Figure 3-5:
The parameters are: Service: From this list, select the application or service to be allowed or blocked. The list already displays many common services, but you are not limited to these choices. Use the Services menu, see How to Define Services on page 3-12, to add any additional services or applications that do not already appear. Action: Choose how you want this type of traffic to be handled. You can block or allow always, or you can choose to block or allow according to the schedule you have defined in the Schedule menu. Send to LAN Server: Enter the IP address of the computer or server on your LAN which will receive the inbound traffic covered by this rule. WAN Users: These settings determine which packets are covered by the rule, based on their source (WAN) IP address. Select the desired option: Any: All IP addresses are covered by this rule. Address range: If this option is selected, you must enter the Start and Finish fields.
3-7 v1.0, May 2006
Single address: Enter the required address in the Start field.
Log: You can select whether the traffic will be logged. The choices are: Never: No log entries will be made for this service. Always: Any traffic for this service type will be logged. Match: Traffic of this type that matches the parameters and action will be logged. Not match: Traffic of this type that does not match the parameters and action will be logged.
Inbound Rule Example: Allowing Video conferencing If you want to allow incoming video conferencing to be initiated from a restricted range of outside IP addresses, such as from a branch office, you can create an inbound rule. In the example shown in Figure 3-6, CU-SeeMe connections are allowed only from a specified range of external IP addresses. In this case, we have also specified logging of any incoming CU-SeeMe requests that do not match the allowed parameters.
Considerations for Inbound Rules If your external IP address is assigned dynamically by your ISP, the IP address may change periodically as the DHCP lease expires. Consider using the Dynamic DNS feature in the Advanced menu so that external users can always find your network. If the IP address of the local server computer is assigned by DHCP, it may change when the computer is rebooted. To avoid this, use the Reserved IP address feature in the LAN IP menu to keep the computers IP address constant.
The LAN TCP/IP Setup parameters are: IP Address: This is the LAN IP address of the wireless modem router. IP Subnet Mask: This is the LAN Subnet Mask of the wireless modem router. Combined with the IP address, the IP Subnet Mask allows a device to know which other addresses are local to it, and which must be reached through a gateway or wireless modem router. RIP Direction: RIP (Router Information Protocol) allows a wireless modem router to exchange routing information with other routers. The RIP Direction selection controls how the Wireless Modem Router sends and receives RIP packets. Both is the default. When set to Both or Out Only, the wireless modem router will broadcast its routing table periodically. When set to Both or In Only, it will incorporate the RIP information that it receives. When set to None, it will not send any RIP packets and will ignore any RIP packets received. RIP Version: This controls the format and the broadcasting method of the RIP packets that the wireless modem router sends. It recognizes both formats when receiving. By default, this is set for RIP-1. RIP-1 is universally supported. RIP-1 is probably adequate for most networks, unless you have an unusual network setup.
RIP-2 carries more information. Both RIP-2B and RIP-2M send the routing data in RIP-2 format. RIP-2B uses subnet broadcasting. RIP-2M uses multicasting. Note: If you change the LAN IP address of the wireless modem router while connected through the browser, you will be disconnected. You must then open a new connection to the new IP address and log in again.
By default, the wireless modem router will function 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 wireless modem router's LAN. The assigned default gateway address is the LAN address of the router. IP addresses will be assigned to the attached PCs 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 Internet Networking and TCP/IP Addressing: in Appendix B for an explanation of DHCP and information about how to assign IP addresses for your network. Use Router as DHCP server If another device on your network will be the DHCP server, or if you will manually configure the network settings of all of your computers, clear the Use router as DHCP server check box. Otherwise, leave it selected. 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 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.254, although you may want to save part of the range for devices with fixed addresses. The router will deliver the following parameters to any LAN device that requests DHCP: An IP Address from the range you have defined Subnet Mask Gateway IP Address is 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
5-5 v1.0, May 2006
Secondary DNS Server, if you entered a Secondary DNS address in the Basic Settings menu WINS Server, short for Windows Internet Naming Service Server, determines the IP address associated with a particular Windows computer. A WINS server records and reports a list of names and IP address of Windows PCs on its local network. If you connect to a remote network that contains a WINS server, enter the servers IP address here. This allows your PCs to browse the network using the Network Neighborhood feature of Windows.
Reserved IP addresses 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 access the routers DHCP server. Reserved IP addresses should be assigned to 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 192.168.0.x. 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 will not be 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.

How to Configure LAN TCP/IP Settings
1. Log in to the router at its default LAN address of http://192.168.0.1 with its default User Name of admin, default password of password, or using whatever User Name, Password and LAN address you have chosen for the router. 2. From the Main Menu, under Advanced, click the LAN IP Setup link to view the menu, shown in Figure 5-3:
3. Enter the TCP/IP, DHCP, or Reserved IP parameters. 4. Click Apply to save your changes.
Configuring Dynamic DNS
If your network has a permanently assigned IP address, you can register a domain name and have that name linked with your IP address by public Domain Name Servers (DNS). However, if your Internet account uses a dynamically assigned IP address, you will not know in advance what your IP address will be, and the address can change frequently. In this case, you can use a commercial dynamic DNS service that will allow you to register your domain to their IP address, and will forward traffic directed at your domain to your frequently-changing IP address.
The router contains a client that can connect to a dynamic DNS service provider. To use this feature, you must select a service provider and obtain an account with them. After you have configured your account information in the router, whenever your ISP-assigned IP address changes, your router will automatically contact your dynamic DNS service provider, log in to your account, and register your new IP address.
When you first configured your router, two implicit static routes were created. A default route was created with your ISP as the wireless modem router, and a second static route was created to your local network for all 192.168.0.x addresses. With this configuration, if you attempt to access a device on the 188.8.131.52 network, your router will forward your request to the ISP. The ISP forwards your request to the company where you are employed, and the request will likely be denied by the companys firewall. In this case you must define a static route, telling your router that 184.108.40.206 should be accessed through the ISDN router at 192.168.0.100. The static route setup would look like Figure 5-6.
In this example: The Destination IP Address and IP Subnet Mask fields specify that this static route applies to all 134.177.x.x addresses. The Wireless Modem Router IP Address fields specifies that all traffic for these addresses should be forwarded to the ISDN router at 192.168.0.100. The metric value represents the number of routers between your network and the destination. This is a direct connection so it can be set to the minimum value of 2. Private is selected only as a precautionary security measure in case RIP is activated.

Ive configured the router but I cant access the Internet. Go to Troubleshooting the ISP Connection on page 6-4. I cant remember the routers configuration password. I want to clear the configuration and start over again. Go to Restoring the Default Configuration and Password on page 6-9.
Troubleshooting the ISP Connection
If your router is unable to access the Internet, you should check the ADSL connection, then the WAN TCP/IP connection.
If your router is unable to access the Internet, you should first determine whether you have an ADSL link with the service provider. The state of this connection is indicated with the Internet LED. Internet LED Green or Blinking Green If your Internet LED is green or blinking green, then you have a good ADSL connection. You can be confident that the service provider has connected your line correctly and that your wiring is correct. Internet LED Blinking Amber If your Internet LED is blinking amber, then your wireless modem router is attempting to make an ADSL connection with the service provider. The LED should turn green within several minutes. If the Internet LED does not turn green, disconnect all telephones on the line. If this solves the problem, reconnect the telephones one at a time, being careful to use a microfilter on each telephone. If the microfilters are connected correctly, you should be able to connect all your telephones. If disconnecting telephones does not result in a green Internet LED, there may be a problem with your wiring. If the telephone company has tested the ADSL signal at your Network Interface Device (NID), then you may have poor quality wiring in your house.

Internet LED Off If the Internet LED is off, disconnect all telephones on the line. If this solves the problem, reconnect the telephones one at a time, being careful to use a microfilter on each telephone. If the microfilters are connected correctly, you should be able to connect all your telephones. If disconnecting telephones does not result in a green Internet LED the problem may be one of the following: Check that the telephone company has made the connection to your line and tested it. Verify that you are connected to the correct telephone line. If you have more than one phone line, be sure that you are connected to the line with the ADSL service. It may be necessary to use a swapper if your ADSL signal is on pins 1 and 4 or the RJ-11 jack. The RangeMax NEXT Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router uses pins 2 and 3.
Obtaining an Internet IP Address
If your wireless modem router is unable to access the internet, and your Internet LED is green or blinking green, you should determine whether the wireless modem router is able to obtain an Internet IP address from the ISP. Unless you have been assigned a static IP address, your wireless modem router must request an IP address from the ISP. You can determine whether the request was successful using the browser interface. To check the Internet IP address from the browser interface: 1. Launch your browser and select an external site such as www.netgear.com. 2. Access the Main Menu of the wireless modem routers configuration at http://192.168.0.1. 3. Under the Maintenance heading check that an IP address is shown for the WAN Port. If 0.0.0.0 is shown, your wireless modem router has not obtained an IP address from your ISP. If your router is unable to obtain an IP address from the ISP, the problem may be one of the following: If you have selected a login program, you may have incorrectly set the Service Name, User Name and Password. See Troubleshooting PPPoE or PPPoA, below. Your ISP may check for your computer's host name. Assign the computer Host Name of your ISP account to the wireless modem router in the browser-based Setup Wizard. Your ISP only allows one Ethernet MAC address to connect to Internet, and may check for your computers MAC address. In this case:

Restoring the Default Configuration and Password
This section explains how to restore the factory default configuration settings, changing the routers administration password to password and the IP address to 192.168.0.1. You can erase the current configuration and restore factory defaults in two ways: Use the Erase function of the Web Configuration Manager (see Backing Up, Restoring, or Erasing Your Settings on page 4-1). Use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router. Use this method for cases when the administration password or IP address is not known.
Using the Reset button
To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the administration password or IP address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router. 1. Press and hold the Default Reset button until the Test LED turns on (about 10 seconds). 2. Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot.
Problems with Date and Time
The E-mail menu in the Content Filtering section displays the current date and time of day. The RangeMax NEXT Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router uses the Network Time Protocol (NTP) to obtain the current time from one of several Network Time Servers on the Internet. Each entry in the log is stamped with the date and time of day. Problems with the date and time function can include: Date shown is January 1, 2000 Cause: The router has not yet successfully reached a Network Time Server. Check that your Internet access settings are configured correctly. If you have just completed configuring the router, wait at least five minutes and check the date and time again. Time is off by one hour Cause: The router does not automatically sense Daylight Savings Time. In the E-mail menu, check or uncheck the box marked Adjust for Daylight Savings Time.
