Setup Wizard
The Setup Wizard is a useful and easy utility to help setup the DI-808HV to quickly connect to your ISP (Internet Service Provider) with only a few steps required. It will guide you step by step to configure the password, time, and WAN settings of your DI-808HV. The Setup Wizard is a helpful guide for first time users to the DI-808HV.

WAN Settings
WAN (Wide Area Network) Settings are settings that are used to connect to your ISP (Internet Service Provider). The WAN settings are provided to you by your ISP and often times referred to as "public settings". Please select the appropriate option for your specific ISP.

WAN - Dynamic IP Address
Select this option if your ISP (Internet Service Provider) provides you an IP address automatically. Cable modem providers typically use dynamic assignment of IP Address.

    Host Name : (optional) The Host Name field is optional but may be required by some Internet Service Providers. The default host name is the model number of the device.
    MAC Address : (optional) The MAC (Media Access Control) Address field is required by some Internet Service Providers (ISP). The default MAC address is set to the MAC address of the WAN interface in the device. You can use the " Clone MAC Address" button to automatically copy the MAC address of the Ethernet Card installed in the computer used to configure the device. It is only necessary to fill the field if required by your ISP.
    Primary DNS address : (optional) Enter in a Domain Name Server to use. Leave blank to receive a DNS address from your ISP.
    Secondary DNS address : (optional)
    Auto-reconnect : Enable this feature to allow the DI-808HV to reconnect to the ISP automatically if the connection is disconnected.

WAN - Static IP Address
If required by your ISP, select this option to configure the device with the static IP Address information. Enter in the IP address, subnet mask, gateway address, and DNS (domain name server) address(es) provided to you by your ISP. Each IP address entered in the fields must be in the appropriate IP form, which are four IP octets separated by a dot (x.x. x.x). The Router will not accept the IP address if it is not in this format.

Example:192.168.0.100

WAN - PPPoE
Select this option if your ISP requires you to use a PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) connection. DSL providers typically use this option. Select Dynamic PPPoE to obtain an IP address automatically for your PPPoE connection (used by majority of PPPoE connections). Select Static PPPoE to use a static IP address for your PPPoE connection.

    User Name : Enter your PPPoE username.
    Password : Enter your PPPoE password.
    Service Name : (optional) If your ISP uses a service name for the PPPoE connection, enter the service name here.

    IP Address : (optional) This option is only available for Static PPPoE. Enter in the static IP address for the PPPoE connection.
    Primary DNS Address : (optional) Enter in a Domain Name Server to use. Leave blank to receive a DNS address from your ISP.
    Secondary DNS Address : (optional)
    Maximum Idle time : The amount of time of inactivity before the device will disconnect your PPPoE session. Enter a Maximum Idle Time (in minutes) to define a maximum period of time for which the Internet connection is maintained during inactivity. If the connection is inactive for longer than the defined Maximum Idle Time, then the connect ion will be dropped. Either set the value for idle time to zero or enable Auto-reconnect to disable this feature.
    Auto-reconnect : If enabled, the device will automatically connect to your ISP after your unit is restarted or when the connection is dropped.
    MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) : You may need to change the MTU setting to conform to your ISP. The default setting is 1492.

    PPTP Account and Password : The account and password your ISP assigned to you.
    Connection ID : (optional) Input the connection ID if your ISP requires it.
    Maximum Idle Time : The amount of time of inactivity to disconnect your PPTP session. Set it to zero or enable Auto-reconnect to disable this feature. If Auto-reconnect is enabled, this product will automatically connect to the ISP after the router is restarted or connection is dropped.

WAN - Others - L2TP
