For most home users Wide Area Network is everything outside your local network (home). Think of it as the internet. You can't really manage it, only access to is managed.
Multiple LAN (Local Area Networks) connected can be defined as a WAN, but again the access to and from is managed. This type is used within companies with multiple sites like a bank and so on.

I can get a computer on the LAN but not the WAN. All the other computers work fine but I just got a new one and am having this problem.


The WAN (Wide Area Network) port is used for access to the internet through the use of a DSL or Cable modem.

You can't connect a pc to the WAN port it must be connected to one of the LAN ports.

SonyVaio VGN-TZ398U/XC - Wireless WAN: Integrated Mobile Broadb?


You are not obligated to use Sprint. If you look at the first sentence it says "Optional Sprint....'

Yes you can use any carrier you want. Most new computers today come preload with AOL, Sprint, AT&T. In hopes you will choose one of them since it is already loaded, but not activated.

How to enable WAN IP in a DI-604 Router for 3 computers


"I wanna make the 2nd pc a server but it isn't accessible through the WAN ip. "

Well that explains everything. If you want to get to 192.168.0.102 from the internet, you need to tell the router where to send packets. You do this by going to the ADVANCED section and configuring Virtual Servers. For example: If you are setting up the computer at 102 as a ftp server, ftp uses port 21. The name would be FTP, private IP would be 192.168.0.102, Protocol is TCP, and the Private and Public ports would normally both be 21. Don't forget to Enable the rule.

What this does is tell the router that when ever a request comes in on port 21, it should forward it to 192.168.0.102. To access the external side of the router you need to go to 70.55.84.233 (according to the image you posted)

Difrence of lan wan


The Lan limit on unshielded twisted pair cable (UTP) is 300 ft for a local area network (lan). The cable uses the 802.3 Of course if fiber is used in a LAN then this # can be extended substantially.

Now the main difference between the LAN and Wide Area Network (WAN) is that LANs typically have 1 brodacast domain and froward packets at data link (layer 2 of the OSI) level using MAC addresses.

The WAN operates at the network level (layer 3 of the OSI). WANs are and reads IP addresses. Routers can extend far distances (as you said 40-60km) and band with depends on distance. the further away, the more attenuation on the line.

I hope this helps.

Using just the VOIP part of a Belkin all in one router??


You will probably need to set it up differently, I do not know the belking router, but normally the VOIP functions only work on the wan port of these routers so you should make the connections as follows:

INET ---> (wan) DLINK (lan) -----> (wan) BELKIN (voip) --> Phone
|--------> Wired Computers
|--- ) ) ) Wi Fi computers

On the DLINK enable DHCP and set a fixed IP for the Belkin router, either by setting the belkin in an IP outside the DHCP pool or setting it from the DHCP server.

This configuration workd well with a DLINK and a Motorola (vonage) router I have.
