My P310 can not get an IP address from the ISP to connect to the Internet, what can I do?

Currently, there are various ways that ISPs control their users. That is, the WAN IP is provided only when the user is checked as an authorized user. The ISPs currently use three ways: 1. Check if the 'MAC address' is valid 2. Check if the 'Host Name' is valid, e.g., @home 3. Check if the 'User ID' is valid, e.g., RR-Toshiba Authentication Service, RR-Manager Authentication Service, RR Telstra If you are not able to get the Internet IP from the ISP, check which authentication method your ISP uses and troubleshoot the problem as described below.

How fast can the data go?

The speed of the cable modem is only one part of the equation. There are a combination of factors starting with how fast your PC can handle IP traffic, then how fast your PC to cable modem interface is, then how fast the cable modem system runs and how much congestion there is on the cable network, then how big a pipe there is at the head end to the rest of the Internet. Different models of PCs and Macs are able to handle IP traffic at varying speeds. Very few can handle it at 30 Mbps. Ethernet (10baseT) is the most popular cable modem interface standard for the PC. This automatically limits the speed of the connection to under 10 Mbps even if the cable modem can receive at 30 Mbps. Most Local Area Networks use 10baseT Ethernet, and although they are 10 Mbps networks, it takes a LOT longer than one second to transmit 10 megabits (or 1.25 megabytes) of data from one terminal to another. Cable modems on the same node share bandwidth, which means that congestion is created when too many people are on simultaneously. One user downloading large graphic or video files can use a significant portion of shared bandwidth, slowing down access for other users in the same neighborhood. Most independent Internet Service Providers today connect to the Internet using a single 1.5 Mbps "T1" telephone line. All of their subscribers share that 1.5 Mbps pipeline. Cable head-ends connecting to the Internet backbone using a T1 limit their subscribers to an absolute maximum of 1.5 Mbps. To create the appearance of faster network access, service companies plan to store or "cache" frequently requested web sites and Usenet newsgroups on a server at their head-end. Storing data locally will remove some of the bottleneck at the backbone connection. How fast can they go? In a perfect world (or lab) they can receive data at speeds up to 30 Mbps. In the real world, with cost conscious cable companies running the systems, the speed will probably fall to about 1.5 Mbps.

What is the main difference between WinGate and the Prestige 310 ?

# WinGate is a software only solution that needs to be installed in a dedicated Windows 95 PC based server. The total cost and complexity are many times over ATI?s product. The Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router is a plug-n-play internet appliance. # WinGate requires all TCP/IP applications such as Netscape Navigator to be reconfigured to have the dedicated server as a proxy. The Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router does not require users to reconfigure any software at all. # The Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router uses Network Address Translation (NAT) scheme, which supports all TCP/UDP ports. WinGate only supports limited number of ports, such as http(80), ftp(21), telnet(23), and pop3(110). # WinGate works as a proxy, while the Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router works as a gateway. The gateway approach is more efficient than the proxy during the processing of TCP/IP commands. As a result, the Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router achieves 10% to 20% higher performance than that of software solutions such as WinGate. # The Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router uses Solid State Disk technology. There are no moving parts in the product. It is much more reliable than any hard disk based system, such as the one for WinGate.

How does e-mail work through the Prestige 310 ?

It depends on what kind of IP you have: Static or Dynamic. If your company has a domain name, it means that you have a static IP address. Suppose your company's e-mail address is [email protected] Joe and Debbie will be able to send e-mail through Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router using [email protected] and [email protected] respectively as their e-mail addresses. They will be able to retrieve their individual private and secure e-mail, if they have been assigned the proper access right. If your company does not have a domain name, it means that your ISP provides you with a dynamic IP address. Suppose your company's e-mail address is [email protected] Jane and John will be able to send e-mail through Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router using "jane" and "john" respectively as their e-mail addresses. Again, they will be able to retrieve their individual private and secured e-mail, if they have been assigned the proper access right.

What is the difference between the internal IP and the real IP from my ISP?

Internal IPs are sometimes referred to as virtual IPs. They are a group of up to 255 IPs that are used and recognized internally on the local area network. They are not intended to be recognized on the Internet. The real IP from ISP, instead, can be recognized or pinged by another real IP. The Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router works like an intelligent router that routes between the virtual IP and the real IP.

What is BOOTP/DHCP?

BOOTP stands for Bootstrap Protocol. DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. Both are mechanisms to dynamically assign an IP address for a TCP/IP client by the server. In this case, the Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router is a BOOTP/DHCP server. Win95 and WinNT clients use DHCP to request an internal IP address, while WFW and WinSock clients use BOOTP. TCP/IP clients may specify their own IP or utilize BOOTP/DHCP to request an IP address.

What is PPPoE?

PPPoE stands for Point-to-Point Protocol Over Ethernet that is an IETF draft standard specifying how a computer interacts with a broadband modem (i.e. xDSL, cable, wireless, etc.) to achieve access to the high-speed data networks via a familiar PPP dialer such as 'Dial-Up Networking' user interface. PPPoE supports a broad range of existing applications and service including authentication, accounting, secure access and configuration management. There are some service providers running of PPPoE today. Before configuring PPPoE in the Prestige, please make sure your ISP supports PPPoE.

What do I need to use the P310?

You need a ADSL modem or cable modem with an Ethernet port to use the P310. The P310 has two Ethernet ports: LAN port and WAN port. You should connect the computer to the LAN port and connect the external modem to the WAN port. If the ISP uses PPPoE or RoadRunner Authentication you need the user account to enter in the P310.

Advent 9315 wifi

How are you connecting to the internet? 1. Wireless 2. Wired This can have an effect on the speed. A wired connection is not subsceptable to any interference and wont slow down from it. A wireless connection can be slow because of the router, other things that broadcast radio signals, other things that broadcast non radio signals (like flourescent lights.) How are you testing the speed? Unless you go to a website that has a speed test program or you are running a speed test application, there is no way to know for certain that your speed is what you believe it is. Your speed can also change due to the amount of people on the internet and other things like equipment failure outside your house.
