How to set up an Internet Connection on ASUS Wireless WAN

 

1. Enter the IP address of your device in the browser, followed by your username and password to login to your ASUS networking device.

ASUS Wireless Routers use a web-based user interface that allows you to configure the router by any web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, or Google Chrome.

 

 

2. Click [Quick Internet Setup]

The Quick Internet Setup function guides you to quickly set up your Internet connection.

The wireless router automatically detects if your ISP connection type is Automatic IP, Static IP, PPPoE, PPTP and L2TP. Key in the necessary information for your ISP connection type.

IMPORTANT: Obtain the necessary information from your ISP about the Internet connection type.

 

 

3. If you need detailed setup information, go to the WAN- Internet Connection.

 

4. There are 5 WAN connections to choose from : Automatic IP, Static IP. PPPoE, PPTP, L2TP.

Automatic IP

Enable WAN: Enable and disable WAN. Under some connection types, you can get a new IP address by using Enable and Disable WAN.

Enable NAT: NAT(Network Address Translation) is a process used in routers to replace the address information of network packets with new address information. Typical applications for NAT is for routers which connect to LAN with the WAN. In LAN, every network device had a private IP (LAN IP) but there’s only one public IP (WAN IP). To grant internet access to the network devices, the router replaces the private IP address of the sender with its own public IP address in all outgoing data packets. The router saves all necessary information in a table (NAT table) so that incoming data packets can then be assigned to the correct network device.

Enable UPnP: UPnP(Universal Plug and Play) allows several devices(routers, televisions, stereo systems, game consoles, cellular phone) to be controlled via an IP-based network with or without a central control through a gateway.

Connect to DNS Server automatically: Allows this router to get the DNS IP address from the ISP automatically.

Authentication: This item may be specified by some ISPs. Check with your ISP and fill them in if required.

Host Name: You can provide a host name for your router. It’s usually requested by your ISP.

MAC Address: MAC(Media Access Control) address is a unique identifier that identifies your computer or device in the network. ISPs monitor the MAC addresses of devices that connect to their services, and would disallow Internet Connection for new MAC addresses. To fix this issue, you can do either of the following:
* Contact your ISP and request to update the MAC address associated with your ISP subscription.
* Clone or change the MAC address of the new device to match the MAC address of the original device.

DHCP query frequency: Some Internet Service Providers block MAC addresses if the device makes DHCP queries too often. To prevent this, change the DHCP query frequency.
In the default Aggressive mode, if the router does not get a response from the ISP, it sends another query after 20 seconds and then makes three more attempts.
In Normal mode, if the router doesn’t get a response from the ISP, it makes a second query after 120 seconds and then makes two more attempts.

 

Static IP

Enable WAN: Enable and disable WAN. Under some connection type, you can get a new IP address by enable and disable WAN.

Enable NAT: NAT(Network Address Translation) is a process used in routers to replace the address information of network packet with new address information. Typical applications for NAT is router which connect to LAN with the WAN. In LAN, every network devices had a private IP(LAN IP) but there’s only one public IP(WAN IP).

Enable UPnP: UPnP(Universal Plug and Play) allows several devices(routers, televisions, stereo systems, game consoles, cellular phone) to be controlled via an IP-based network with or without a central control through a gateway.

IP Address: If your WAN connection requires a static IP address, key in the IP address in this field.

Subnet Mask: If your WAN connection requires a static IP address, key in the subnet mask in this field.

Default Gateway: If your WAN connection requires a static IP address, key in the gateway IP address in this field.

DNS Server: This field indicates the IP address of DNS that the router contacts to.

Authentication: Some Internet Service Providers block MAC addresses if the device makes DHCP queries too often. To prevent this, change the DHCP query frequency. In the default Aggressive mode, if router does not get a response from the ISP, it sends another query after 20 seconds and makes three more attempts. In Normal mode, if router doesn’t get a response from the ISP, it makes a second query after 120 seconds and makes two more attempts.
