The Setup Wizard is a useful and easy utility to help setup the DI-604 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-604. The Setup Wizard is a helpful guide for first time users to the DI-604.
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
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.
WAN - Static IP Address
WAN - PPPoE
- Enter your PPPoE username.
These are the IP settings of the LAN (Local Area Network) interface for the device. These settings may be referred to as "private settings". You may change the LAN IP address if needed. The LAN IP address is private to your internal network and cannot be seen on the Internet. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
IP Address: IP address of the DI-604, default is 192.168.0.1.
Subnet Mask: Subnet Mask of DI-604, default is 255.255.255.0.
Local Domain Name: (optional) Enter in the local domain name for the network.
DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DHCP server gives out IP addresses when a device is starting up and request an IP address to be logged on to the network. The device must be set as a DHCP client to "Obtain the IP address automatically". By default, the DHCP Server is enabled in the unit. The DHCP address pool contains the range of the IP address that will automatically be assigned to the clients on the network.
Starting IP address - The starting IP address for the DHCP server's IP assignment.
Ending IP address - The ending IP address for the DHCP server's IP assignment.
Lease Time - The length of time for the IP lease.
DHCP client computers connected to the unit will have their information displayed in the DHCP Client Table. The table will show the Host Name, IP Address, MAC Address, and Expired Time of the DHCP lease for each client computer.
