On this page, you
will find the network settings of your PC for use with a router
solution (either hardware or software solution). This information
is published on a seperate page, as it's being used for several
other pages as well. The settings work for TCP/IP networks, either
UTP or BNC (coax)
based, using a router. This router can be a separate
device, a (A)DSL/Cable modem or
a server with for example WinRoute,
all of them with DHCP activated.
