Paper Abstract

An experiment has been conducted with emphases on the home network transmission layer and the Internet gateway device. The IEEE 1394 is chosen as the transmission mechanism for its capability of handling both isochronous and asynchronous transmissions. To cover the reach of a conventional home, a 1394/100BaseTX converter has been developed to carry the 1394 signaling protocol over a Category 5 unshielded twisted pair cable with a maximum point to point distance of 100 meters. A gateway device to the Internet is designed and configured based on a PC. The gateway consists of a 1394 transceiver with PCI interface, a digital subscriber line transceiver, and Windows based networking software. This paper focuses on the general long distance 1394 transceiver hardware, gateway system configuration and software architecture. Issues such as DHCP, private IP address, and DNS are also discussed.
