Device Name This is a user-friendly name of the router. You can see this name for
the router in Network Explorer on Windows systems.
IP Address This is the LAN IP address of the wireless modem router.
IP Subnet Mask This is the LAN subnet mask of the wireless modem router.
Combined with the IP address, the IP subnet mask allows a device to
know which other addresses are local to it, and which need to be
reached through a gateway or wireless modem router.
Use Router as DHCP Server See the following section, Configure DHCP.
Address Reservation See Configure Reserved IP Addresses on page 81.
By default, the wireless modem router functions as a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
(DHCP) server, allowing it to assign IP, DNS server, and default gateway addresses to all
computers connected to the wireless modem router’s LAN. The assigned default gateway
address is the LAN address of the router. IP addresses are assigned to the attached
computers from a pool of addresses specified in this screen. Each pool address is tested
before it is assigned to avoid duplicate addresses on the LAN.
For most applications, the default DHCP and TCP/IP settings of the router are satisfactory.
