About This Guide:
This Guide takes you through the basic steps necessary to install and configure
your OfficeConnect Cable/DSL Secure Gateway, and establish a connection
from your computers to the Internet. Throughout, the OfficeConnect
Cable/DSL Secure Gateway is simply referred to as the Gateway.
Your package contains:
One OfficeConnect Cable/DSL Secure Gateway
One power adapter for use with the Gateway
Four rubber feet
One Ethernet cable
One CD-ROM containing the Gateway Discovery program and the User Guide
This Installation Guide
One Support and Safety Information Sheet
One Warranty Flyer
Before starting, you must ensure the following:
You already have a cable or DSL broadband connection to the Internet, with
a suitable modem, and that this connection works properly. The modem
must have an Ethernet port for connection to your Gateway.
You have a computer that has an Ethernet connection available and is
already correctly configured for communication with the Internet. Your
computer must be able to connect to the Internet via the modem, and must
have a Web browser installed.
There are no other DHCP server devices on your local network that are
responsible for allocating IP addresses to your computers and other network-
connected devices. Your Gateway will now perform this function by default.
