Gather Configuration Information for
Your Working Connection to the Internet
Before installing the FM114P firewall, you
should have an external DSL or cable
modem with an Ethernet port set up and
working with one computer. You’ll be
installing the firewall between the modem
and the computer.
For each computer that you want to con-
nect to the firewall, you must have
An available RJ-45 Ethernet port (or
adapter) — either built-in or from a
network interface card (NIC) installed
in the computer
an 802.11b-compliant wireless adapter.
TCP/IP installed.
If your computer is a Windows
computer, it must have the Client for Microsoft
Networks software installed.
Note: Please see the Reference Manual on the CD if you need help installing
TCP/IP software or the Client for Microsoft Networks software on any Windows
computer that hasn’t been networked previously.
A Category 5 (Cat 5) Ethernet patch cable
Note: There is one cable in the box with the firewall.

modem, you will have a cable
connection between the
modem and your cable outlet.

Connection information
Later in the setup process you’ll need to configure the firewall to work with your network. A
Setup Wizard is available to help you through this procedure. You can configure the firewall
yourself using information that you can get from your computer or your ISP about your
current Internet connection.
The next page includes blanks for you to fill in and refer to later. To get the needed
information from your computer:
(Windows 98/Me) Open the Network control panel, select the TCP/IP entry, and
click Properties.
(Windows 2000/XP) Open Local Area Network Connection and click Properties.
) Open the TCP/IP (or Network) control panel.
Your ISP should have provided you with a summary sheet of all the information needed to connect
your computer to the Internet. If you cannot locate the information, you’ll have to contact your ISP.
An ISP Guide is included with your firewall’s documentation, either as a printed card or on the
Resource CD.
The ISP Guide contains specific configuration guidelines for connecting to
many popular ISPs.
