    Arrow Configuration of a gateaway

    Please i'm trying to figure out what to select on the configuration of my box: under dhcp server>used domain option i can select wan or wlan/lan.
    What can you tell me about the difference of having a wan or wlan/lan domain?
    I have also an option for macupd.
    I couldnt find much about these two, what are they aplication in a network?
    Thanks

    Well, it would be very helpful to know the router type/fw/fw-version and which howto aso was used.

    Anyhow: WAN=wide area network=internet
    LAN=local area network=your network
    WLAN=wireless........
    read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wide_area_network
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_area_network
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WLAN

    And what is a domain?
    It is just the name of the network. A network address is for instance 192.168.1.2, but as you know there are billions of internet addresses.
    Nobody would be able to know the addresses - hence, names are used
    instead (like www.google.com), but your browser is asking the DNS (domain name system) server for the network address when you want see a web-site.
    see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_name_system


    For macupd: maybe you use DD-WRT, then it would be better to use the ddwrt forum.
    Just a hint for what macupd is used: http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/rflow.php
