Page 31

MAC Address: MAC (Media Access Control) address is a unique identifier for your networking device... Some ISPs monitor the MAC address of networking devices that connect to their service and reject any unrecognized device that attempt to connect... To avoid connection issues due to an unregistered MAC address, you can:

Page 32

Clone or change the MAC address of the ASUS wireless router to match the MAC address of the previous networking device recognized by the ISP...

Page 33

To configure the Data Usage settings: 1... From the navigation panel, go to Advanced Settings > WAN >

Page 34

The LTE Router can detect your ISP based on the IMSI information of your SIM card... If the mobile network from your ISP is not found, connect to a roaming network of other ISPs...

Page 35

UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) allows several devices (such as routers, televisions, stereo systems, game consoles, and cellular phones), to be controlled via an IP-based network with or without a central control through a gateway... UPnP connects PCs of all form factors, providing a seamless network for remote configuration and data transfer... Using UPnP, a new network device is discovered automatically... Once connected to the network, devices can be remotely configured to support P2P applications, interactive gaming, video conferencing, and web or proxy servers... Unlike Port forwarding, which involves manually configuring port settings, UPnP automatically configures the router to accept incoming connections and direct requests to a specific PC on the local network...

Page 36

Virtual Server is a method to direct network traffic from the Internet to a specific port or a specific range of ports to a device or number of devices on your local network... If you configure the LTE Router as a virtual server, remote users accessing services such as web or FTP at your local site via public IP addresses can be automatically redirected to local servers configured with private IP addresses... In other words, depending on the requested service (TCP/UDP port number), the LTE Router redirects the external service request to the appropriate server (located at another internal IP address)...

Page 37

Virtual DMZ exposes one client to the Internet, allowing this client to receive all inbound packets directed to your Local Area Network... Inbound traffic from the Internet is usually discarded and routed to a specific client only if port forwarding or a port trigger has been configured on the network... In a DMZ configuration, one network client receives all inbound packets... Setting up DMZ on a network is useful when you need incoming ports open or you want to host a domain, web, or e-mail server...

Page 38

Enable DMZ: Key in the last digit of the clients LAN IP address that will provide the DMZ service and be exposed on the Internet... Ensure that the server client has a static IP address... Tick Enable...

Page 39

Setting up DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) allows you to access the router outside your network through the provided DDNS service... The DDNS service, which maps a domain name to a static or dynamic IP address, is powered by DynDNS... org... With a DDNS connection, you can host a website, an email server, an FTP site, and other Internet apps in your local area network even when using dynamic IP addresses for the domain names...

Page 40

The wireless router can serve as a hardware firewall for your network... Set up the firewall to protect your network from malicious attacks such as Denial of Service (DoS) attacks... DoS attacks disable a device or network to deny users access to network resources...

Page 41

Firewall > MAC Filter tab... 2... On the Enable MAC Filter field, select Enable... 3... Enter an MAC address and click the button... 4... Click Apply...

Page 42

SPI and Anti-DoS firewall protection: When this item is enabled, all the incoming packets from the WAN services are blocked except for those types selected in the Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) section... RIP defect: When this item is enabled, the router will not block RIP request packets from the WAN services, preventing the overflow of input queues due to packet accumulation...

Page 43

Access Control allows you to specify the clients or services that are allowed or blocked to the WAN port service... The access control rules are executed with the specified schedules...

Page 44

4... Enter a description of the clients... 5... Enter the clients IP range to block the specified clients... 6... Define a scheduling rule... You can select Always Blocking or

Page 45

NOTE: The URL Filter is based on a DNS query... If a network client has already accessed a website such as http://www... abcxxx... com, then the website will not be blocked (a DNS cache in the system stores previously visited websites)... To resolve this issue, clear the DNS cache before setting up the URL Filter...

Page 46

Each access control rule can be activated at a pre-defined scheduled time... You can define the schedule rule in the Schedule Rule page, and apply the rule in the Access Control page...

A ping test determines the latency (communication delay) between ASUS router and another server (such as www... google... com) on a network by sending multiple ICMP packets and listening for the replies... Enter a host name or IP address to perform a Ping... The test results display the shortest, the average and the maximum round-trip times and packet loss rate between hosts...

Page 51

The Traceroute test (also known as trace route or tracert) will trace the route that test packets take from one server destination to another... The test results provide a list of hosts or IP addresses showing the route taken by the test packets starting from the selected monitoring location to the destination Domain or IP (such as www... google... com) ... Common uses of the Traceroute test are network troubleshooting and to help identify routing problems or firewalls that may be blocking access to a web site...

Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things... To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights... These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it...

The Program, below, refers to any such program or work, and a work based on the Program means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language... (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term modification... ) Each licensee is addressed as you...

Page 62

You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Programs source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program...

Page 63

These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole... If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works... But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it...

Page 64

The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it... For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable... However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable...

7... If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License... If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all... For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program...

Page 66

8... If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded... In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License...
