The NAT setting administration panel enables the user to set up port triggers, port forwarding, and DMZ. Interestingly, the DMZ panel has a special option which should be enabled if the DMZ’d computer will be running StarCraft on Battle.net at any time.
The Firewall section permits the user to block nasty things emanating from the Internet.
The bandwidth management section is newer, especially with the Bandwidth on Demand section. By clicking on the Gaming Blaster, Internet Application, or VOIP/Video Streaming buttons, the user can allocate more latency and bandwidth to the desired category.
The system setup panel enables the user to move the router into Router or Access Point modes from its default Gateway mode. The user can also change the administration panel’s password and upgrade the firmware.
The Status and Log section enables monitoring of the device.
