WAN Configuration   2-9
Creating a New Connection Profile
Connection profiles are useful for configuring the connection and authentication settings for negotiating a PPP 
connection. If you are using the PPP data link encapsulation method, you can store your authentication 
information in the connection profile so that your user name and password (or host name and secret) are 
transmitted when you attempt to connect.
Connection profiles define the networking protocols necessar y for the Router to make a remote connection. A 
connection profile is like an address book entr y describing how the Router is to get to a remote site, or how to 
recognize and authenticate a connection. To create a new connection profile, you navigate to the WAN 
Configuration screen from the Main Menu, and select Add Connection Profile.
The Add Connection Profile screen appears.
Select Profile Name and enter a name for this connection profile. It can be any name you wish. For 
example: the name of your ISP.
Toggle Profile Enabled to Yes or No. The default is Yes. You can toggle it to No, if you want to disable it 
Select Encapsulation Type and press Return. The pop-up menu offers the possible data link encapsulation 
methods for connection profiles used for a variety of purposes: PPP, RFC1483, ATMP, PPTP, IPsec, L2TP.
