In order to access the Internet through your Safe@Office appliance, you must configure one of the following connection types:
You can configure an Ethernet-based connection in all models. An Ethernet-based connection can be connected to another network by means of a switch, a router, a bridge, or an Ethernet-enabled broadband modem.
In ADSL models, the Ethernet-based connection is configured on the DMZ/WAN2 port. In non-ADSL models, you can use the WAN port, the DMZ/WAN2 port, or both ports for an Ethernet-based Internet connection.
You can configure a direct ADSL connection in Safe@Office ADSL models only. These models include an integrated ADSL modem, which enables you to connect the appliance directly to your ADSL line without using an additional modem or router.
You can configure your Internet connection using any of the following setup tools:
For information, see Configuring a Backup Internet Connection.
For information on Traffic Shaper, see Using Traffic Shaper.
Before configuring the connection, you must first set up the modem. For information, see Setting Up Modems.
