Product features
In minutes you will be able to share your Internet connection and network your computers.
The following is a list of features that make your new Dynex Wireless G Router an ideal
solution for your home or small office network.
Works with Both PCs and Mac® Computers
—The router supports a variety of
networking environments including Mac OS®, X v10.x, Linux®, Windows® 2000, XP, Vista™,
and others. All that is needed is an Internet browser and a network adapter that supports
TCP/IP (the standard language of the Internet).
Front-Panel LED Display
—Lighted LEDs on the front of the router indicate which
functions are in operation. You'll know at-a-glance whether your router is connected to the
Internet. This feature eliminates the need for advanced software and status-monitoring
procedures.
Web-Based Advanced User Interface
—You can set up the router's advanced functions
easily through your web browser, without having to install additional software onto the
computer. There are no disks to install or keep track of and you can make changes and
perform setup functions from any computer on the network quickly and easily.
NAT IP Address Sharing
—Your router employs Network Address Translation (NAT) to share
the single IP address assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider while saving the cost
of adding IP addresses to your Internet service account.
SPI Firewall
—Your router is equipped with a firewall that will protect your network from a
wide array of common hacker attacks including IP Spoofing, Land Attack, Ping of Death
(PoD), Denial of Service (DoS), IP with zero length, Smurf Attack, TCP Null Scan, SYN flood,
UDP flooding, Tear Drop Attack, ICMP defect, RIP defect, and fragment flooding.
Integrated 10/100 4-Port Switch
—The router has a built-in, 4-port network switch to
allow your wired computers to share printers, data and MP3 files, digital photos, and much
more. The switch features automatic detection so it will adjust to the speed of connected
devices. The switch will transfer data between computers and the Internet simultaneously
without interrupting or consuming resources.
Universal Plug-and-Play (UPnP) Compatibility
—UPnP (Universal Plug-and-Play) is a
technology that offers seamless operation of voice messaging, video messaging, games, and
other applications that are UPnP-compliant.
Support for VPN Pass-Through
—If you connect to your office network from home using
a VPN connection, your router will allow your VPN-equipped computer to pass through the
Router and to your office network.

Product features
Built-In Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
—Built-In Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on-board makes for the easiest possible connection of a
network. The DHCP server will assign IP addresses to each computer automatically so there is
no need for a complicated networking setup.
Easy Install Wizard
—The Easy Install Wizard takes the guesswork out of setting up your
Router. This automatic software determines your network settings for you and sets up the
Router for connection to your Internet Service Provider (ISP). In a matter of minutes, your
wireless router will be up and running on the Internet.
Note
: Easy Install Wizard software is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and Mac OS
Mac OSx 10.4.x. If you are using another operating system, the Wireless Router can be set
up using the Alternate Setup Method described in this User Guide (see Alternate setup
method on page 14.
Integrated 802.11g Wireless Access Point
—802.11g is an exciting new wireless
technology that achieves data rates up to 54 Mbps, nearly five times faster than 802.11b.
MAC Address Filtering
—For added security, you can set up a list of MAC addresses (unique
client identifiers) that are allowed access to your network. Every computer has its own MAC
address. Simply enter these MAC addresses into a list using the Web-Based Advanced User
Interface and you can control access to your network.
