Terminology list
This manual will contain a number of technical terms. It is important to know what they mean
before you begin installing and configuring the router.
This is the product you have just bought. A router acts as a boundary between two
networks, WAN and LAN.
UTP network cable RJ-45:
From here on: network cable. A network cable is used for connecting
network devices such as computers, modems and routers. You may
already have such a cable, the cable in the package contents is intended
to connect the router to your modem.
Internet Service Provider, this is the company that supplies you your Internet connection.

Broadband modem:
From here on: modem. Your modem is the device you already have or that has been
supplied to you by your ISP that currently provides your internet connection. The two
most common modem types are cable modems and ADSL modems, but other kinds
of modems also exist.
LAN stands for “Local Area Network”, in the case of this router, the LAN consists of
the four yellow ports and the wireless network. With the router, all your computers
will form a single LAN.
WAN stands for “Wide Area Network”, in most cases this means the Internet.
Wireless security:
By default, the router’s wireless network is not secured. This means that anyone in
range (including your neighbours) can connect to the network and use your internet
connection. Wireless security protects your network so that only authorised devices
can gain access. Sweex recommends all users to secure their wireless network after
installation using either the WPA or WPS methods explained further on in this manual.
