• Network cable. A network cable is used for connecting network devices such as computers, modems and routers. You may already have such

• ISP: Internet Service Provider, this is the company that supplies you your Internet connection.
• Broadband modem: From here on: modem. Your modem is the device you already have or that has been supplied to you by your ISP that
currently provides your internet connection. The two most common modem types are cable modems and ADSL modems, but other kinds of
modems also exist.
• LAN: LAN stands for “Local Area Network”, in the case of this router, the LAN consists of the four yellow ports and the wireless network. With
the router, all your computers will form a single LAN.
• WAN: WAN stands for “Wide Area Network”, in most cases this means the Internet.
• Wireless security: By default, the router’s wireless network is not secured. This means that anyone in range (including your neighbours) can
connect to the network and use your internet connection. Wireless security protects your network so that only authorised devices can gain
access. Sweex recommends all users to secure their wireless network after installation using either the WPA or WPS methods explained
further on in the “securing your wireless network” chapter of this manual.
