Set Up a Default DMZ Server
The default DMZ server feature is helpful when you are using some online games and videoconferencing applications
that are incompatible with Network Address Translation (NAT). The modem router is programmed to recognize some
of these applications and to work correctly with them, but other applications might not function well. In some cases,
one local computer can run the application correctly if the IP address for that computer is entered as the default
DMZ server.
DMZ servers pose a security risk. A computer designated as the default DMZ server
loses much of the protection of the firewall and is exposed to exploits from the
Internet. If compromised, the DMZ server computer can be used to attack other
computers on your network.
The modem router usually detects and discards incoming traffic from the Internet that is not a response to one of
your local computers or a service or application for which you set up a port forwarding or port triggering rule. Instead
of discarding this traffic, you can direct the modem router to forward the traffic to one computer on your network.
This computer is called the default DMZ server.
To set up a default DMZ server:
1. Launch a web browser from a computer or WiFi device that is connected to the network.
2. Enter http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.
3. Enter the modem router user name and password.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
The BASIC Home page displays.
4. Select ADVANCED > Setup > WAN Setup.
The WAN Setup page displays.
5. Select the Default DMZ Server check box.
