The next group of settings is necessary to establish a stable connection within the router’s local network and to the external network. It is called IP Config. The first page of the group is WAN&LAN. Here you specify the router’s internal and external IP-address and the type of connection to the external network. The WL-500W is claimed to support all popular VPN connection types, but I couldn’t find the L2TP protocol in the connections list.
The router’s integrated DHCP, DNS and WINS servers can be set up on the DHCP page.
The WL-500W’s routing table is edited on the Route page. The table of routes entered manually is displayed here as well. The WL-500W supports routing over its internal network as well as into the external network.
The last page of the group, Miscellaneous, contains settings that wouldn’t be appropriate in the previous pages yet are related to the group’s topic. For example, you can configure the router for working with DDNS services, enable the integrated UPnP server, and set up a correction of the router’s system time.
