The PLANET 802.11n Wireless VDSL2 Router, VC-230N, applies 2T2R MIMO
antenna technology and provides office and residential users the ideal
solution for sharing a high-speed VDSL2 broadband connection and
four-10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet backbone. The VC-230N is developed with
three core networking technologies: IEEE 802.11b/g/n, Ethernet and VDSL2
(Very High Speed Digital Subscriber Line 2). Via VDSL 2 technology, the
VC-230N offers very high performance access to Internet, up to 100Mbps
for both downstream and upstream data transmission. VDSL2 offers the
absolute fastest data transmission speed over existing copper telephone
lines without the need for rewiring.
The VC-230N complies with ITU-T G993.2 standard and provides two modes for
network applications – Bridge and Router. With built-in IEEE
802.11b/g and 802.11n wireless network capability, the VC-230N allows any
computer and wireless-enabled network device connect to it without
additional cabling. 802.11n Draft 2.0 wireless capability brings users the
highest speed of wireless experience ever; the data transmission rate can be
as high as 300Mbps. The radio coverage is also doubled to offer high
speed wireless connection even in wide space at your office or house.
To secure wireless communication, the VC-230N supports most up-to-date
encryption, WEP, WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK. Moreover, the VC-230N supports WPS
configuration with PBC/PIN type for users easily connect to a secured
There are two selectable VDSL2 operating modes of VC-230N: CO and
CPE, which can be adjusted by Web UI. Users can setup Point-to-Point
application by connecting two VC-230N, in which one in CO mode and
another one in CPE mode, to transmit data in high speed between two networks
over existing copper telephone lines.
The VC-230N provides user-friendly management interface to be managed easily
through standard web browsers. For networking management features, the
VC-230N not only provides basic router functions such as DHCP server,
Virtual Server, DMZ, QoS, and UPnP, but also provides full firewall
functions including Network Address Translation (NAT), IP/Port/MAC Filtering
and Content Filtering. Furthermore, the VC-230N serves as an Internet
firewall to protect your network from being accessed by unauthorized users.
A pair of two VC-230N (or VC-230) can act as
a standalone pair for Ethernet distance
extension over existing telephone wires.
With just one pair of AWG-24 copper wire,
you can easily connect two Ethernet networks
together with the data rate of maximum
100/100Mbps. Meanwhile, telephone service
can still be used while the modems are in
Internet Connection with Wired / Wireless
The VC-230N is the perfect solution for a
small group of PCs accessing very high-speed
broadband Internet connection
simultaneously. With VDSL 2 standard network
deployment, it supports downstream and
upstream rates both up to 100 Mbps.
Compliant with IEEE 802.11n technology, the
VC-230N provides better wireless signal,
higher data rate and performance than
802.11g compliant routers. Furthermore, the
VC-230N features the latest security and
firewall functions to prevent unauthorized
access or invasion. By just clicking the
Wizard and setup step by step, then you can
easily get in the wireless network and enjoy
high speed Internet transmission in your
home or office.
The VC-230N also incorporates a 4-Port
10/100Base-TX switching hub made to easily
create or extend your LAN and prevent the
attacks from the internet.
Internet Access Features
• Shared Internet Access
All users on the LAN can access the Internet through the VC-230N using
only one single external IP Address. The local (invalid) IP Addresses
are hidden from external sources. This process is called NAT (Network
• Built-in VDSL2 Modem
The VC-230N provides VDSL2 modem and supports all common VDSL2
• Multiple WAN Connection
On the Internet (WAN port) connection, the VC-230N supports Dynamic IP
Address (IP Address is allocated on connection), Fixed IP Address,
PPPoE, PPTP and L2TP.
• CO and CPE Support
The VC-230N provides the Peer-to-Peer connection. Users can select the
CO and CPE mode manually.
• Bridge and Router Application
The VC-230N supports two application modes: bridging and routing modes.
Currently, the default mode is routing mode. Note: routing mode and
bridging mode cannot be used simultaneously.
Advanced Internet Functions
• Virtual Servers
This feature allows Internet users to access Internet servers on your
LAN. The setup is quick and easy.
The VC-230N supports simple firewall with NAT technology.
• Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)
UPnP allows automatic discovery and configuration of the Broadband
Router. UPnP is supported by Windows ME, XP, or later.
• Selectable VDSL2 Profiles
The VC-230N supports common VDSL2 profiles (30a, 17a, 12a, 12b, 8a, 8b,
8c, 8d) for users choice. Users can select different VDSL2 profiles
based on their needs.
• User Friendly Interface
The VC-230N can be managed and controlled through Web UI.
• DMZ Support
The VC-230N can translate public IP addresses to private IP address to
allow unlimited 2-Way communication with the servers or individual users
on the Internet. It provides the most flexibility to run programs
smoothly for programs that might be restricted in NAT environment.
• RIP1/2 Routing
It supports RIPv1/2 routing protocol for routing capability.
• VPN Pass-through Support
PCs with VPN (Virtual Private Networking) software are transparently
supported - no configuration is required.
• 4-Port Switch
The VC-230N incorporates a 4-Port 10/100Base-TX switching hub, making
it easy to create or extend your LAN.
• DHCP Server Support
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
provides a dynamic IP address to PCs and other devices upon
request. The VC-230N can act as a DHCP Server for devices on your local
• Support IEEE 802.11b, g and 802.11n Wireless Stations
The 802.11n standard provides backward compatibility with the 802.11b
and 802.11g standard, so 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n Draft 2.0 can be
used simultaneously. IEEE 802.11n wireless technology is capable
of up to 300Mbps data rate.
• Two External Antennas with MIMO Technology
The VC-230N provides farther coverage, less dead spaces and higher
throughput with 2T2R MIMO technology.
• WPS Push Button Control
The VC-230N supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) for users to easily
connect to wireless network without configuring the security.
• WEP Support
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is included. Key sizes of 64 Bit and 128
Bit are supported.
• WPA-PSK Support
WPA-PSK_TKIP and WAP-PSK_AES encryption are supported.
• Wireless MAC Access Control
The Wireless Access Control feature can check the MAC address (hardware
address) of Wireless stations to ensure that only trusted Wireless
Stations can access your LAN.
