Before You Begin

1. If you purchased this router to share your high-speed Internet connection with other
computers, you must have either an Ethernet-based Cable or DSL modem with an
established Internet account from an Internet Service Provider (ISP).
2. It's best to use the same computer that is connected to your modem for configuring
the DI-704P Broadband Router. The DI-704P acts as a DHCP server and will assign
all the necessary IP address information on your network. See Appendix at the
end of this Quick Installation Guide or the Manual on the CD-ROM for setting
each network adapter to automatically obtain an IP address.
