CHAPTER 1 Introduction 1.1 Overview This chapter introduces the main features and applications of the NBG6818, also called ARMOR G1. The NBG6818 extends the range of your existing wired network without additional wiring, providing easy network access to mobile users. You can set up a wireless network with other IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac compatible devices. The NBG6818 is able to function both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks at the same time. A range of services such as a firewall and content filtering are also available for secure Internet computing. There is an USB port on the side panel of your NBG6818. You can connect an USB memory stick, an USB hard drive, or an USB device for file sharing. The NBG6818 automatically detects the USB device. 1.2 Applications Your can have the following networks with the NBG6818: • Wired. You can connect network devices via the Ethernet ports of the NBG6818 so that they can communicate with each other and access the Internet. Figure 1 Internet Access Application: Wired Connection • Wireless. Wireless clients can connect to the NBG6818 to access network resources. You can use WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) to create an instant network connection with another WPS-compatible device. NBG6818 User’s Guide 11 Chapter 1 Introduction Figure 2 Internet Access Application: Wireless Connection • WAN. Connect to a broadband modem/router for Internet access. Figure 3 Internet Access Application: Ethernet WAN 1.3 Ways to Manage the NBG6818 Use the following method to manage the NBG6818. • Web Configurator. This is recommended for everyday management of the NBG6818 using a (supported) web browser. • Zyxel ARMOR. This is the app you can use to manage the NBG6818 on your cellphone. To install the app, scan the QR code on the QSG. 1.4 Good Habits for Managing the NBG6818 Do the following things regularly to make the NBG6818 more secure and to manage the NBG6818 more effectively. • Change the password. Use a password that’s not easy to guess and that consists of different types of characters, such as numbers and letters. • Write down the password and put it in a safe place. • Back up the configuration (and make sure you know how to restore it). Restoring an earlier working configuration may be useful if the device becomes unstable or even crashes. If you forget your password, you will have to reset the NBG6818 to its factory default settings. If you backed up an earlier configuration file, you would not have to totally re-configure the NBG6818. You could simply restore your last configuration. NBG6818 User’s Guide 12 Chapter 1 Introduction 1.5 Resetting the NBG6818 If you forget your password or IP address, or you cannot access the Web Configurator, insert a thin object into the Reset hole on the side of the NBG6818 to reload the factory-default configuration file. This means that you will lose all settings that you had previously saved. 1.5.1 How to Use the RESET Button 1 Make sure the power LED is on. 2 Locate the Reset hole. 3 Insert a thin object into the Reset hole for longer than eight seconds to reset the NBG6818 back to its factory-default configuration. 1.6 The WPS Button Your NBG6818 supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), which is an easy way to set up a secure wireless network. WPS is an industry standard specification, defined by the Wi-Fi Alliance. WPS allows you to quickly set up a wireless network with strong security, without having to configure security settings manually. Each WPS connection works between two devices. Both devices must support WPS (check each device’s documentation to make sure). Depending on the devices you have, you can either press a button (on the device itself, or in its configuration utility) or enter a PIN (a unique Personal Identification Number that allows one device to authenticate the other) in each of the two devices. When WPS is activated on a device, it has two minutes to find another device that also has WPS activated. Then, the two devices connect and set up a secure network by themselves. You can use the WPS button in the Web Configurator of the NBG6818 to activate WPS in order to quickly set up a wireless network with strong security. 1 Make sure the power LED is on (not blinking). 2 Open the Web Configurator. 3 Click Settings > WiFi > WPS, and the press the WPS button. 4 Press the WPS button on another WPS-enabled device within range of the NBG6818. Note: You must activate WPS in the NBG6818 and in another wireless device within two minutes of each other. For more information on using WPS, see Section 7.2 on page 42.

(Section 8.2 on page 57). • Use the OpenVPN Server screen to create or configure your NBG6818 when it functions as an OpenVPN Server (Section 8.3.1 on page 61). • Use the OpenVPN Client screen to add an OpenVPN Server Account you want your NBG6818 to connect to (Section 8.3.3 on page 65). • Use the USB Application screen to allow file sharing or to set up your NBG6818 to act as a media server (Section 8.4 on page 67). 8.1.2 What You Need To Know The following terms and concepts may help as you read through this chapter. DLNA The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a group of personal computer and electronics companies that works to make products compatible in a home network. DLNA clients play files stored on DLNA servers. The NBG6818 can function as a DLNA-compliant media server and stream files to DLNA compliant media clients without any configuration. Workgroup name This is the name given to a set of computers that are connected on a network and share resources such as a printer or files. Windows automatically assigns the workgroup name when you set up a network. File Systems A file system is a way of storing and organizing files on your hard drive and storage device. Often different operating systems such as Windows or Linux have different file systems. The file-sharing feature on your NBG6818 supports New Technology File System (NTFS), File Allocation Table (FAT) and FAT32 file systems. The NBG6818 uses Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol for its file sharing functions. CIFS compatible computers can access the USB file storage devices connected to the NBG6818. CIFS NBG6818 User’s Guide 56 Chapter 8 Applications protocol is supported on Microsoft Windows, Linux Samba and other operating systems (refer to your systems specifications for CIFS compatibility). Samba SMB is a client-server protocol used by Microsoft Windows systems for sharing files, printers, and so on. Samba is a free SMB server that runs on most Unix and Unix-like systems. It provides an implementation of an SMB client and server for use with non-Microsoft operating systems. File Transfer Protocol This is a method of transferring data from one computer to another over a network such as the Internet. VPN A virtual private network (VPN) provides secure communications between sites without the expense of leased site-to-site lines. A secure VPN is a combination of tunneling, encryption, authentication, access control and auditing. It is used to transport traffic over the Internet or any insecure network that uses TCP/IP for communication. 8.1.3 Before You Begin Make sure the NBG6818 is connected to your network and turned on. 1 Connect the USB device to one of the NBG6818’s USB ports. 2 The NBG6818 detects the USB device and makes its contents available for browsing. If you are connecting a USB hard drive that comes with an external power supply, make sure it is connected to an appropriate power source that is on. Note: If your USB device cannot be detected by the NBG6818, see the troubleshooting for suggestions. 8.2 Parental Control Parental Control allows you to block specific URLs.

NBG6818 User’s Guide 76 CHAPTER 9 WAN 9.1 Overview This chapter discusses the NBG6818’s WAN screens. Use these screens to configure your NBG6818 for Internet access. A WAN (Wide Area Network) connection is an outside connection to another network or the Internet. It connects your private networks such as a LAN (Local Area Network) and other networks, so that a computer in one location can communicate with computers in other locations. Figure 40 LAN and WAN Note: Features in this chapter are not available if you are using bridge mode. 9.2 What You Can Do • Use the Internet Connection screen to enter your ISP information and set how the computer acquires its IP, DNS and WAN MAC addresses (Section 9.4 on page 79). • Use the NAT & Port Forwarding screen to enable NAT, set a default server and change your NBG6818’s port forwarding settings (Section 9.5 on page 87). • Use the Passthrough screen to configure your NBG6818’s ALGs and VPN pass-through settings (Section 9.6 on page 91) • Use the Port Trigger screen to configure your NBG6818’s trigger port settings (Section 9.7 on page 92). • Use the Dynamic DNS screen to change your NBG6818’s DDNS settings (Section 9.8 on page 95). • Use the UPnP screen to enable UPnP on your NBG6818 (Section 9.9 on page 96). NBG6818 User’s Guide 77 Chapter 9 WAN 9.3 What You Need To Know The information in this section can help you configure the screens for your WAN connection, as well as enable/disable some advanced features of your NBG6818. 9.3.1 Configuring Your Internet Connection Encapsulation Method Encapsulation is used to include data from an upper layer protocol into a lower layer protocol. To set up a WAN connection to the Internet, you need to use the same encapsulation method used by your ISP (Internet Service Provider). If your ISP offers a dial-up Internet connection using PPPoE (PPP over Ethernet) or PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol), they should also provide a username and password (and service name) for user authentication. WAN IP Address The WAN IP address is an IP address for the NBG6818, which makes it accessible from an outside network. It is used by the NBG6818 to communicate with other devices in other networks. It can be static (fixed) or dynamically assigned by the ISP each time the NBG6818 tries to access the Internet. If your ISP assigns you a static WAN IP address, they should also assign you the subnet mask and DNS server IP address(es) (and a gateway IP address if you use the Ethernet or ENET ENCAP encapsulation method). DNS Server Address Assignment Use Domain Name System (DNS) to map a domain name to its corresponding IP address and vice versa, for instance, the IP address of zyxel.com is 204.217.0.2. The DNS server is extremely important because without it, you must know the IP address of a computer before you can access it. The NBG6818 can get the DNS server addresses in the following ways. 1 The ISP tells you the DNS server addresses, usually in the form of an information sheet, when you sign up. If your ISP gives you DNS server addresses, manually enter them in the DNS server fields. 2 If your ISP dynamically assigns the DNS server IP addresses (along with the NBG6818’s WAN IP address), set the DNS server fields to get the DNS server address from the ISP. WAN MAC Address The MAC address screen allows users to configure the WAN port's MAC address by either using the factory default or cloning the MAC address from a computer on your LAN. Choose Factory Default to select the factory assigned default MAC Address. Otherwise, click Clone the computer's MAC address - IP Address and enter the IP address of the computer on the LAN whose MAC you are cloning. Once it is successfully configured, the address will be copied to configuration file. It is recommended that you clone the MAC address prior to hooking up the WAN Port. NBG6818 User’s Guide 78 Chapter 9 WAN Auto-IP Change When the NBG6818 gets a WAN IP address or a DNS server IP address which is in the same subnet as the LAN IP address 192.168.123.1, Auto-IP-Change allows the NBG6818 to change its LAN IP address to 10.0.0.1 automatically. If the NBG6818’s original LAN IP address is 10.0.0.1 and the WAN IP address is in the same subnet, such as 10.0.0.3, the NBG6818 switches to use 192.168.123.1 as its LAN IP address. Figure 41 Auto-IP-Change Example Auto-IP-Change only works under the following conditions: • The NBG6818 must be in Standard Mode (see Section 13.7 on page 137 for more information) for Auto IP-Change to become active. • The NBG6818 is set to receive a dynamic WAN IP address. 9.4 Internet Connection Screen Use this screen to change your NBG6818’s Internet access settings. The screen varies depending on the encapsulation method you select. Click Settings > Internet > Internet Connection. 9.4.1 IPoE Encapsulation This screen displays when you select IPoE encapsulation. NBG6818 User’s Guide 79 Chapter 9 WAN Figure 42 Settings > Internet > Internet Connection: IPoE (IPv4 Only) The following table describes the labels in this screen. Table 22 Network > WAN > Internet Connection: IPoE Encapsulation LABEL DESCRIPTION Internet Connection

Internet Service Provider Type You must choose the IPoE option when the WAN port is used as a regular Ethernet.
