Model FR114P ProSafe Firewall with Print Server
Thank you for purchasing a NETGEAR FR114P Cable/DSL ProSafe Firewall with Print Server.
A firewall is a special type of router that incorporates features for network security. With this
firewall you can have secure Internet access through a high-speed DSL or cable modem and share
the single modem with several computers. The FR114P also incorporates a built-in print server.
This installation guide shows you how to connect the firewall and configure it and your computers for secure Internet access. Setup is easy—follow the instructions in this guide and your system will be up and running quickly.
If you have problems, there is a troubleshooting section on page 13 to help you—or you can get more detailed troubleshooting information from the Reference Manual on the CD, online from www.NETGEAR.com or by phone.
Installation Overview Estimated time: 15 to 30 minutes
1. Gather the configuration information you have for your working DSL or cable modem connection to the Internet.
2. Install the firewall between the DSL or cable modem and one computer.
3. Configure that computer to work with the firewall and restart the computer and modem.
4. Configure the firewall and go online to test the connection.
5. Connect other computers, configure them and restart each. (optional)
6. Configure for using the print server. (optional) On the FR114P Resource CD, you’ll find the FR114P Installation Assistant, which supplements the instructions in this installation guide by animating the step-by-step procedures given here.
For more detailed information about installation, troubleshooting and configuration procedures, see the Reference Manual on the CD.

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:
• Open the Network control panel, select the TCP/IP entry, and click Properties.
• Open Local Area Network Connection and click Properties. (Windows 2000/XP)
• Open the TCP/IP (or Network) control panel. (Macintosh®) 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.
Host and Domain Names Some ISPs use a specific host or domain name—like jsmith or earthlink.net. If you haven’t been given specific information about host or domain names then use the following examples
as a guide:
• If your main e-mail account with your ISP is email@example.com, then use aaa as your host name. (Your ISP might call this your account name, user name, or system name.)
• If your ISP’s mail server is mail.xxx.yyy.com, then use xxx.yyy.com as the domain name.
Domain name: __________________________________
Login Name If your ISP requires a login name and password (possibly because you have a PPPoE account),
fill in the following:
(may be your full e-mail address) Password:______________________________________
Note: The login name could be called a user name or account name by your ISP.
The login name is case sensitive. You must type it exactly as given by your ISP. For example, c_jones is a different login name than C_Jones or cjones.
Fixed (or static) IP address
If you have a static IP address through your ISP, fill in the following information:
IP address: _____._____._____._____ Subnet mask: _____._____._____._____ Gateway IP address:_____._____._____._____ DNS server address information
If you were given specific Domain Name System (DNS) server addresses, fill in the following:
DNS Server IP address(es): _____._____._____._____ _____._____._____._____ Install the Firewall After unpacking the box and locating the configuration information, you’re ready to install the firewall.
Note: You do not have to power down any equipment to do this, but if you need to move your computers (perhaps to get to ports in the back), you may want to shut down the computers before moving them around.
DSL or cable modem to your firewall since this may be a special cable even though it Model FR114P ProSafe Firewall with Print Server looks like other LAN cables.
2. Remove this cable from the computer and insert that end into the Internet port on the rear panel of the firewall.
3. Use the Ethernet patch cable that came with the firewall to connect the computer to one of the four numbered local Ethernet ports on the rear panel of the firewall.
4. Connect the power adapter’s cord into the back of the firewall and then plug the adapter into a power source (such as a wall socket or power strip).
Note: If you want to connect other computers to the firewall, don’t connect them now. Do that after you know that the modem/firewall setup works with one computer.
Check the setup
• The Test light turns on for a few seconds and then goes off.
Note: If the Test light remains on for more than one minute, go to Troubleshooting on page 13.
