Basic Configuration
This chapter describes how to perform the basic configuration of your Model FVS318 Cable/DSL
ProSafe VPN Firewall using the Setup Wizard, which walks you through the configuration process
for your Internet connection.
Accessing the Web Configuration Manager
In order to use the browser-based Web Configuration Manager, your PC must have a web browser
program installed such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. Because the
Configuration Manager uses Java, your Web browser must be Java-enabled and support HTTP
uploads. NETGEAR recommends using Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator 4.0 or
above. Free browser programs are readily available for Windows, Macintosh, or UNIX/Linux.
To configure for Internet access using your browser:
1. Connect your PC and firewall as described in the previous chapter.
Make sure your PC has been rebooted since connecting with the firewall.
2. Launch your web browser.
Note: If you normally use a login program (such as Enternet or WinPOET) to access the
Internet, do not launch that program.
3. Click your browser’s Stop button.
4. In the Address (or Location) box of your browser, type and press ENTER.
