Internet access sharing
A PC can dial up and
connect to most
providers (ISPs) using
A NAT firewall
converts all the IP
addresses on your
local network into a
single IP address for
use on the Internet.
You can use your Nokia A032 with a modem to
connect a wireless station to the Internet.
Getting started explains how to configure your
Nokia A032 to connect automatically. All you
need is the phone number of your Internet
Service Provider (ISP) and your log-on
information, and you're all set. The Nokia A032
connects automatically and invisibly when a
station requests access to the Internet.
This means that you don't need to connect the
modem to your PC, and you only need one
modem even if there are several users accessing
the Internet. This can result in significant
savings compared to using a phone line and an
ISP account for each user. Furthermore, when
you add another computer to the network it can
immediately share the connection as soon as it
joins the LAN.
The Nokia A032 can also provide firewall
security, preventing unwanted access to your
network from external Internet users. See NAT
setup in the Advanced User Guide for details.
