The purpose of the following is to show how to get IP Address Information from your PC and to
correlate LAN address information from a router.
------------------------------------------------
To get the following IP information;
1. Bring up a command prompt(DOS Window).
2. Enter ipconfig /all > saveip.txt (hit return!)
3. Print out file saveip.txt

This information was copied fromthe Routerto help understand WAN to LAN releationship
Located in the LinkSys Router- LAN SIDE OF THINGS.
LAN: IP Address: 192.168.1.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
DHCP Server: Enabled (DHCP server in the router)

What you see in ZAP->Firewall->Zones
Some name- SubNetAdr/Subnet Mask
LinkSysNetwork 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 Network Trusted

When ZAP seen the new network IP from the router a wizard guided the process of filling in the above information, you don't have to hand enter anything when using the wizard. The numbers following the IP Device address are the subnet Mask. The outside world talks to the router. The router assigns the IP address to the PC, if you have 2 PC's on the router they can be assigned a different IP address each time the are powered on.
---------------------------------------------------
About adding a router to your home netnet-Once the SysLink router is plugged in and connected to the WAN side a Router setup program is run from CD. During my install I allowed ZAP to be enabled, I believe Syslink would like ZAP disabled. If you have ZAP enabled don't worry, the ZAP wizard will popup and help out. I actually had the ZAP wizard, the router configuration program and a bad cable on the WAN during the install. Once the corrrect cable was plugged in the system took off and ran. A normal install will go just fine.

The Operating System is XP-Pro, Dhcp and Autoconfiguration are enabled, these are TCP/IP values from the OS network panel.
