Updating firmware thomson speedtouch 530
Going across left to right you have a DC power input socket, four RJ-45 Ethernet ports and an RJ-11 socket.
The RJ-45 ports are all switched 10/100Mbps auto-sensing ports, and happily accommodate patch or cross-over cables.
The two LEDs on each Ethernet socket indicate the activity on the port and whether it is running in 10 or 100Mbps mode.
The big boast of the publicity for the 510 is that you are just five clicks away from the speed of ADSL.
The major advantage with the Thomson set-up software over other routers is that it reboots the router and looks after your computers network card properties as well.
This makes the set-up ideal for people who do not have the slightest clue what an IP address is.
The Inside IP is the IP address of the computer that is running the service you want visible from the Internet; for users with a single IP address service leave the Outside IP set to 0.0.0.0 and in the Inside Port and Outside Port fields enter the port numbers you want to use.
For those worried about how many NAPT entries the router will support, it looks like the router supports somewhere between 35 and 60 entries.so your mail or web server will be visible to the Internet.
