Trend Micro Home Network Security has four modes to support different router brands and models. Choosing the correct network mode for your router is recommended to avoid any compatibility or network issues.

Mode 1

Mode 1 uses the Address Resolution Protocol in order to route network traffic from all connected devices and the gateway through the Trend Micro Home Network Security Station. Mode 1 works with most routers. Set up Mode 1.

Mode 2

Mode 2 uses the Address Resolution Protocol to route traffic from connected devices to the Trend Micro Home Network Security Station. In this mode, HNS uses Network Address Translation to assign IP addresses to client devices. Mode 2 does not support port forwarding. Set up Mode 2.

Mode 3

Mode 3 uses the Address Resolution Protocol to route traffic from connected devices to the Trend Micro Home Network Security Station. In this mode, HNS uses Network Address Translation to assign IP addresses to client devices. Mode 3 may improve video streaming and online games. Mode 3 also offers port forwarding and Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) support. Set up Mode 3.

DHCP Mode

DHCP Mode (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) allows the Trend Micro Home Network Security to host its own DHCP server to manage device IP addresses. This mode is compatible with most routers but requires changing the configuration of the router. DHCP Mode cannot be used with routers that do not allow the DHCP server to be disabled. Set up DHCP Mode.
