Helpful Hints...

When configuring the router to access the Internet, be sure to choose the correct Internet Connection Type from the drop down menu. If you are unsure of which option to choose, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

If you are having trouble accessing the Internet through the router, double check any settings you have entered on this page and verify them with your ISP if needed.

For added security, it is recommended that you disable the WAN Ping Respond option. Ping is often used by malicious Internet users to locate active networks or PCs.

If you are having trouble receiving multicast streams from the Internet, make sure the Multicast Streams option is enabled.
