 Network Setup Options


A Local Area Network (LAN) can look very different from place to place. To make it smooth and simple for you to get an idea of how to connect your B3 into your home LAN, take a look at the following scenario pictures. You might not have the exact same setup as in the scenarios below but feel free to combine and configure to make it fit your needs and requirements.

Scenario 1

B3 serves as router, firewall and server. Only one computer in your LAN, connected via cable.

Scenario 2

B3 serves as router, firewall and server. One or more computers in your LAN, connected wireless via WiFi. This scenario requires you to have the wireless B3.

Scenario 3

You prefer using your old firewall and router. B3 serves only as server. Connect B3’s LAN port to one of your router LAN ports. Leave B3’s WAN port unconnected.

Scenario 4

B3 serves as router, firewall and server. You want to connect more than one network device in your LAN via cable. Use a switch to split up your LAN connection.

Scenario 5

B3 serves as router, firewall and server. You want to connect more than one network device in your LAN via cable or WiFi and you have an old router with wireless access point. Connect B3’s LAN port to one of your router LAN ports. You may also use your old router as an switch, connecting network devices (such as computers or media players) to its other LAN ports. Remember to disable an existing DHCP server in your OLD router.

Scenario 6

B3 serves as router, firewall and server. Almost same configuration as in scenario 5 but using a switch for your network devices with cable. Remember to disable an existing DHCP server in your OLD router.

Scenario 7

B3 serves as router, firewall and server. You have only one computer using a cable in your LAN and several wireless devices. This scenario requires you to have the wireless B3.
