The Admin option is used to set a password for access to the
Web-based management. By default there is no password configured. It
is highly recommended that you create a password to keep your new
The Time Configuration option allows you to configure, update,
and maintain the correct time on the router's internal system clock.
From this section you can set the time zone that you are in and set
the Time Server. Daylight saving can also be configured to
automatically adjust the time when needed.
Note: If the router loses power for any reason, it cannot
keep its clock running, and will not have the correct time when it
is started again. To maintain correct time for schedules and logs,
either you must enter the correct time after you restart the router,
or you must enable the NTP Server option.
This section allows you to archive your log files to a Syslog
The Email feature can be used to send the system log files,

This section allows you to reboot the device, and restore the
router to the factory default settings. Restoring the unit to the
factory default settings will erase all settings, including any
rules that you've created.
The Firmware Upgrade section can be used to update your router to
the latest firmware code to improve functionality and performance.
To upgrade the firmware, follow these steps:
Here are displayed the version numbers of the firmware
currently installed in your router and the most recent upgrade
that is available.
Note: Firmware upgrade cannot be performed from a
wireless device. To perform an upgrade, ensure that you are using
a PC that is connected to the router by wire.
Note: Some firmware upgrades reset the router's
configuration options to the factory defaults. Before performing
an upgrade, be sure to save the current configuration from the Tools -> Admin
The Dynamic DNS feature allows you to host a server (Web, FTP,
Game Server, etc.) using a domain name that you have purchased
(www.whateveryournameis.com) with your dynamically assigned IP
address. Most broadband Internet Service Providers assign dynamic
(changing) IP addresses. When you use a Dynamic DNS service
provider, your friends can enter your domain name to connect to your
server, no matter what your IP address is.
Note: After configuring the router for dynamic DNS, you
can open a browser and navigate to the URL for your domain (for
example http://www.mydomain.info) and the router will
attempt to forward the request to port 80 on your LAN. If, however,
you do this from a LAN-side computer and there is no virtual server
defined for port 80, the router will return the router's
configuration home page. Refer to the Advanced -> Virtual Server
configuration page to set up a a virtual server.
