Does the Be Box modem have any security?
The Be Box has a built-in basic security feature called NAT (Network Address Translation) NAT converts your computer’s private IP addresses or LAN into a public IP address (hiding your computer behind a private IP network). You’ll need a NAT if you want to connect many computers in private IP addresses to a single subscription or public IP number. When you connect a single computer to the internet, your ISP allocates an IP address to you (this is a single, unique address which identifies your address on the internet for the duration of your connection). This configuration doesn’t require you to do anything. Simply plug your Be Box in. For additional security, we recommend that you change the Be Box’s administrative password (it is delivered with a default password) and if you are using a wireless LAN, configure it with additional security encryption (WEP and WPA). More information can be found in your Be Box technical info CD which comes with your welcome pack.
