DMZ Host Support
DMZ Host Support allows a networked computer to be fully exposed to the
Internet. This function is used when NAT and firewall security prevent an
Internet application from functioning correctly.
NAT IP Address Sharing
Your Modem employs Network Address Translation (NAT) to share the single
IP address assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider while saving the
cost of adding additional IP addresses to your Internet service account.
SPI Firewall
Your Modem is equipped with a firewall that will protect your network from a
wide array of common hacker attacks including:
IP Spoofing, Land Attack, Ping of Death (PoD), Denial of Service (DoS), IP with
zero length, Smurf Attack, TCP Null Scan, SYN flood, UDP flooding, Tear Drop
Attack, ICMP defect, RIP defect, and fragment flooding.
Universal Plug-and-Play (UPnP) Compatibility
UPnP (Universal Plug-and-Play) is a technology that offers seamless operation
of voice messaging, video messaging, games, and other applications that are
QoS (Quality of Service) limits the traffic being sent from the modem (upstream)
when using VoIP at the same time.
If QoS is disabled, the quality of the VoIP
call can suffer due to excessive traffic from another source, such as a PC.
When QoS is enabled, it limits the upstream traffic and sets it aside for VoIP,
increasing the call quality.
Belkin Broadband Voice Modem/Router - 1 Port
Part # F1PI210ENau
Compatibility with both PC and
Mac® Computers
The Modem supports a variety of
networking environments including Mac
OS® 8.x, 9.x & v10.x, AppleTalk®, Linux®,
Windows® 98SE, ME, NT, 2000 and XP and others. You need an Internet
browser and a network adapter that supports TCP/IP (the standard language of
the Internet).
Internet Access
This device supports Internet access through an ADSL connection. Since many
ADSL providers use PPPoE or PPPoA to establish communications with end
users, the VoIP Router includes built-in clients for these protocols, eliminating
the need to install these services on your computer.
Front-Panel LED Display
Light LED’s on the front of the Modem indicate which functions are in operation.
You’ll know at-a-glance whether your Modem is connected to the Internet.
This feature eliminates the need for advanced software and status-monitoring
Web-Based Advanced User Interface
You can set up the Modem advanced functions easily through your web browser,
without having to install additional software onto the computer. There are no
disks to install or keep track of and, best of all, you can make changes and
perform setup functions from any computer on the network quickly and easily.
Built-in Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
Built-In Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on-board makes for
the easiest possible connection of a network. The DHCP server will assign IP
addresses to each computer automatically so there is no need for a complicated
networking setup.

Belkin Broadband Voice Modem
with Wireless Router - 4 port
Part # F1PI241EGau
Has all the features above but also has:
Wired & Wireless LAN
The VoIP Router provides access for up to 4 by 10/100 Mbps wired devices
and up to an additional 32 wireless devices, making it easy to create a network
in small offices or homes.
MAC Address Filtering
For added security, you can set up a list of MAC addresses (unique client
identifiers) that are allowed access to your network. Every computer has its
own MAC address. Simply enter these MAC addresses into a list using the
web-based user interface and you can control access to your network.
WEP, WPA and WPA 2 Encryption protocols
The Router features WPA2, which is the second generation of the WPA-based
802.11i standard. It offers a higher level of wireless security by combining
advanced network authentication and stronger Advanced Encryption Standard
(AES) encryption methods. It also supports the legacy security standard called
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) in order to allow you to activate security with
any legacy devices you may have in your network.
Product Overview
Belkin Broadband Voice Modem/Router - 4 Port
Part # F1PI241ENau
Has all the features above but also has:
Virtual Server
If you have a fixed IP address, you can set
the VoIP Router to act as a virtual host for network address translation. Remote
users access various services at your site using a constant IP address. Then,
depending on the requested service (or port number), the VoIP Router can
route the request to the appropriate server (at another internal IP address). This
secures your network from direct attack by hackers, and provides more flexible
management by allowing you to change internal IP addresses without affecting
outside access to your network.
Built in 4 Port Wired LAN compatibility
The VoIP Router provides access for up to 4 by 10/100 Mbps wired devices
making it easy to create a network in small offices or homes.
Support for VPN Pass-Through
If you connect to your office network from home using a VPN connection, your
Modem will allow your VPN-equipped computer to pass through the Modem
and to your office network.
This VoIP Router supports three of the most commonly used VPN protocols
– PPTP, L2TP, and IPSec. The VPN protocols supported by the VoIP Router are
briefly described below.
Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol – Provides a secure tunnel for remote
client access to a PPTP security gateway. PPTP includes provisions for
call origination and flow control required by ISPs.
L2TP merges the best features of PPTP and L2F – Like PPTP, L2TP
requires that the ISP’s routers support the protocol.
IP Security – Provides IP network-layer encryption. IPSec can support
large encryption networks (such as the Internet) by using digital
certificates for device authentication.
VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) adds the ability to manage multiple networks
with the one modem.

Recent Developments
Even as streaming audio and video over the Internet became common, VoIP
quality was still sub-par. What, you may ask, is the reason for this? While
it’s relatively easy to convert a song or even a video into IP-based packets
and have it arrive in decent shape, the Internet was not designed as a two-
way street, i.e., to support two-way communications as in your typical
conversation. Early VoIP calls were much like walkie-talkie speech, halting and
unsynchronized. A common trick was to let the other speaker know you had
finished talking by ending your statement with the word “Over.” For example,
“How are you today? Over.” “Not too good, I think I’ve the flu. Are you busy?
This method was effective, but hardly conducive to a comfortable conversation!
Therefore, substantial cost savings, although attractive, were not enough to
make up for unacceptably poor call quality. Now, however, thanks to dedicated
hardware processing and protocols like Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), VoIP
can be as smooth as a session that uses the regular telephone network, greatly
increasing its appeal.
Equally as important to VoIP’s recent surge has been the widespread adoption
of broadband in both homes and businesses, which delivers the bandwidth
required to come close to PSTN quality.
Features and Benefits
NAT also enables multi-user Internet access via a single user account, and
virtual server functionality (providing protected access to Internet services such
as Web, FTP, email, and Telnet) VPN pass-through (IPSec-ESP Tunnel mode,
L2TP, PPTP) User-definable application sensing tunnel supports applications
requiring multiple connections easy setup through a web browser on any
operating system that supports TCP/IP compatible with all popular Internet
VoIP Features and Benefits
Full Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) support
Voice Activity Detection (VAD) conserves bandwidth
Quality of Service (QoS) provides superior voice quality
Voice over IP (VoIP)
An Introduction
Using Voice over IP (VoIP), instead of making calls over the regular telephone
network, calls are made over computer (IP) networks, either through your
Internet Service Provider’s connection or through your local network. Calls
made are generally cheaper than traditional calls.
The basic steps involved in VoIP include the conversion of an analog voice
signal to digital, the encoding and then compression of the signal into Internet
Protocol (IP) packets. The VoIP Router is equipped with a digital signal
processor (DSP), which segments the voice signal into frames and stores them
in voice packets. Using the industry standard codecs, G.711, G.723.3 and
G.729, these packets are encoded. These IP packets are then transmitted in
accordance with International Telecommunications Union specification SIP over
the Internet to their destination where the process is reversed.
Advantages of Using VoIP
The main advantage of VoIP over the traditional Public Switched Telephone
Network (PSTN) is the ability to make low-cost calls over the IP network. One
of the greatest benefits is cheaper long distance calls.
Past Problems
Internet-based telephony has been around for years but, until now, has not
reached the mainstream market.
Products with a true cost-saving advantage over standard telephones do not
have comparable call quality. Users experience a prolonged delay making
conversation difficult.
Call-completion rates are very low due to firewalls and the use of Network
Address Translation (NAT), which renders over 50% of residential computers
unable to communicate with traditional VoIP software.
The user interface is complicated, and requires substantial configuration and
technical skills.
