Home network

Home and Guest network settings are shown on 'My network and Wi-Fi' section. By default Home Network (Home segment) combines LAN ports of the built-in switch with main Wi-Fi access point (here wired and wireless hosts are implied). And for the Guest network (Guest segment) a separate Wi-Fi network is considered. This network is isolated from home network. Segmenting the network allows to improve it's security and optimize network's performance. A segment is a logical interface that can include one or more physical interfaces. Within a single segment, all interfaces are combined into a network bridge. The segment settings include the following parameters — network identifier (VLAN ID), IP parameters (IP address, subnet mask, DHCP server, IP address lease time), access profile for unregistered devices, IGMP Proxy And PPPoE transit connections (PPPoE Pass Through).

1. Using network segments, you can create an additional local network in the router. To add a new segment press '+' while you are on 'Home segment' page and then configure the new segment (select network ports and specify other necessary parameters).

2. On the same page you can configure the main Wi-Fi and guest Wi-Fi network. For additional info please refer to following articles:

3. To bind segments to LAN ports of the built-in switch please use 'Ports ans VLANs settings' section. In our case port 2 is included in the Guest segment, and remaining ports belong to Home segment.

If you use VLAN, you can specify VLAN ID and bind the required ports to the segment.

4. In 'IP settings' section you can change the local IP-address and DHCP settings. Additional information you can find in 'Changing IP and DHCP settings in the Home segment' article.

5. In 'Connection policy for unregistered devices' section you can choose profile, which will be applied to all unregistered devices within the segment. For example, in the Home segment, set the profile 'Without Internet access' for all unregistered devices. In this case only registered devices will have Internet access.

NOTE: Important! Firewall rules take precedence over this setting.

6. In 'IGMP Proxy' section you can enable the IGMP Proxy option (by default it's disabled), which allows devices to receive IPTV. IGMP proxy relays IGMP protocol between interfaces. IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) - network protocol which designed to manage group data communication (multicast) in IP networks.
