WPA-PSK versions The Thomson Gateway supports the following WPA-PSK versions: WPA2 (also referred to as WPA2-PSK): WPA2 is the most secure version. You can find the WPS IE update on http://support. Like WPA-PSK it uses a user-defined key. Wireless clients that support WPA2 will use WPA2. E-DOC-CTC-20080421-0002 v1. we recommend you to choose WPA+WPA2. but WEP has been proven to have some security issues. We strongly recommend you to use WPA-PSK instead. The list below gives you an overview of the supported encryption types ordered by security level. Encryption methods During the years a number of encryption types have been developed. Configuring the wireless encryption Proceed as follows: 1 2 Open the Thomson Gateway Web Interface. Which encryption method should I use?

Telephony

Voice over IP (VoIP)
VoIP is a technology in which telephone calls are made over the Internet. This allows you to save on communication costs, especially for long-distance calls.

The old solution
To be able to make your phone calls over the Internet you could: Buy an IP phone. These IP phones are special phones that you can connect to your Internet Gateway. Install VoIP software on your computer and make your phones calls via your computer.

The Thomson solution
With the Thomson Gateway you can make both Internet and regular telephone calls using: A traditional analogue phone. A DECT phone, if your package contains a Thomson DECT USB Adapter. If the device is not powered, the Thomson Gateway will automatically select the analogue signal (if connected). This way you are still able to make emergency calls.

Connecting a Regular Phone to Your Thomson Gateway

Procedure
Use a phone cable with RJ-11 connectors to: 1 2 Wire the green Thomson Gateway Phone port(s) to your phone(s) or fax. If your Thomson Gateway has a black port labelled PSTN, you must connect this port to the telephone output of your DSL filter or splitter to allow analogue phone calls with the same telephone set that you use for VoIP calls. This is only required if you still want to make phone calls using the analogue telephone line. Be aware that, if the PSTN port (if provided) is not wired to your telephone wall outlet, distributed filter or splitter, emergency calls are not always possible! As distributed filters are country-specific, you cannot use the device everywhere. If this is not the case, no additional connections are needed. 3 If you configured your Thomson Gateway using the Guided Installation, the telephony service will already be configured by the Setup wizard. Your phone is now ready for use. If you choose to configure your Thomson Gateway manually or you still need to configure the telephony service, continue with “5.4 Configuring the Telephony Service” on page 33.
