This is a D-Link 604 and the "web page" I can get to from the iMac has
the following tab pages:
Home, Advanced, Tools, Status, and Help.
On each tab page are several buttons:
Home has Wizard, WAN, LAN, DHCP
Advanced has Virtual Server, Applications, Filters, Firewall, and DMZ
Tools has Admin, Time, System, Firmware and Misc.
Status has Device Info, Log and Stats
Help has only a menu:
Log, and Traffic statistics
There is also an faq
