The Giga762SX WLAN dsl
The Siemens Giga762SX WLAN dsl is a powerful but simple communications device for
connecting your PC or local area network (LAN) to the Internet (via DSL). It contains an
integrated ADSL modem (ADSL /ADSL2+) enabling you to access the Internet easily.
You can connect your PC wirelessly to the Giga762SX WLAN dsl and create a wireless
local area network (WLAN). For network security, wireless transmission can be
encrypted using the WPA/WPA2 standard or 64/128-bit WEP.
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl also offers the functions of a PABX for Internet telephony
(VoIP) and fixed network telephony. You can connect up to two traditional analogue terminals and then use these analogue phones both to make calls via the Internet or also
via an existing analogue telephone line. In addition, you can operate SIP clients (wireless SIP telephones and PCs with appropriate software) as PABX extensions and therefore also make calls via the Internet or fixed network.
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl allows several users to access the Internet simultaneously. A
single user account can be shared if your Internet service provider permits this. If you
want to surf the Internet and make calls using the Internet at the lowest possible cost,
the Giga762SX WLAN dsl is a convenient and simple solution.
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl provides the new WPS function for wireless
connection of PCs or notebooks. You can activate this function via
the user interface or – depending on the hardware type of your
device – with the registration (Scan) button on the back panel. If the
other clients in your wireless network such as the Gigaset PC Card
300 also support WPS, you can connect with a simple click.

Do your part for the environment (ECO)
Thanks to a switch-mode power supply unit, all of our broadband products offer significantly reduced power consumption - for more energyefficient use. Each device also lets you variably reduce WLAN transmission power based on the size of your home or office network via the
user interface, which helps make a cleaner environment for everyone. You can even
turn the WLAN off completely when you're not using it. Some of our broadband products also offer you the convenience of switching the WLAN on or off with a handy button directly on the device itself - or have a timer do it for you. It's our goal to ensure a
sustainable economic process by using an environmentally friendly production and
management system - which makes it easy for us to meet the strict ISO 14001 standards
for international environmental management.

When the Siemens Giga762SX WLAN dsl is used, it establishes the connection between
the PCs. For this it has four Ethernet LAN ports for connecting four PCs. The PCs have to
be equipped with a network port (Ethernet). New PCs frequently already have this port.
For older PCs you need to install an Ethernet network card. The PC and the Ethernet LAN
port on the Giga762SX WLAN dsl are connected using an Ethernet cable (CAT5). There
is one supplied. You can obtain additional Ethernet cables from your retailer.
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl allows all PCs to access the Internet simultaneously.

Wireless local area network (WLAN)
In a wireless local area network (WLAN), PCs are linked without wires or cables. The PCs
have to be equipped with a wireless local area network adapter (WLAN adapter), for
example a Gigaset USB Adapter 54.
We generally differentiate between two types of wireless network:
u Infrastructure mode
u Ad-hoc mode
Infrastructure mode
Infrastructure mode connects wireless and wired networks with one another. In addition to the mobile stations, infrastructure mode needs an access point such as the
Giga762SX WLAN dsl. In infrastructure mode, the stations in the network always communicate via this access point. The access point sets up the wireless network on a permanent basis. Each station that wants to be part of the wireless network must first register with the access point before it can exchange data.
The access point establishes the connection between the mobile stations of a wireless
network and a wired LAN (Ethernet) or the Internet. In this case this is described as the
device's router functionality. The router sends data packets that are not addressed to stations within the network "outside" and forwards data packets originating from "outside"
to the appropriate station within the network.
You can use the Giga762SX WLAN dsl to connect
u wirelessly networked PCs to the Internet and
u wirelessly networked PCs to an Ethernet network.
Infrastructure mode is the default configuration for the Giga762SX WLAN dsl.
Ad-hoc mode
An ad-hoc network is a wireless network that has been configured without an access
point or a router. The mobile network components that communicate with each other
directly and wirelessly form the network on an "ad-hoc" basis, i.e. as and when required.
All the stations in the network have the same rights. Ad-hoc networks are used wherever communications networks have to be set up quickly and there is no existing network infrastructure, and where the participants are on the move.

Linking wireless networks with the Internet
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl has an ADSL interface that permits all stations within its local
area network to access the Internet simultaneously. To be able to use this functionality,
you need a DSL connection obtainable from an Internet service provider. Find out
whether your service provider supports parallel access by several PCs.

All PCs can access the Internet via the Giga762SX WLAN dsl.
Please remember:
You can also connect an Ethernet router or switch to a LAN port to access a larger Ethernet. If you want to link the Gigaset WLAN network to an existing network, a large
number of settings have to be applied. Therefore we cannot provide a general example for this use; the configuration depends greatly on the networks in question. We
advise having the configuration of such a network carried out by a specialist.

Using the Gigaset WLAN Repeater, you can extend your wireless network's coverage. Set
it up within the range of your network. The repeater will now transmit data traffic into
its own wireless area. This technology allows you to set up wireless networks that cover
a much larger area than is possible with a single Giga762SX WLAN dsl.

Internet telephony and connecting analogue phones
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl allows a combination of analogue fixed network telephony
and Internet telephony (VoIP) over DSL for two analogue telephones and four other
wired or wireless VoIP telephones or SIP clients.
This provides you with the full benefits of both technologies. You can make use of the
low-cost call rates of Internet telephony without any additional equipment. In addition,
you have the option of using your analogue fixed network connection. The type of calls
that are cheaper for you will depend on what calls you make and when you make them,
and the rates offered by your service provider. The Giga762SX WLAN dsl gives you complete freedom of choice at any time.

Internet
Fixed network
You can choose whether to connect any two analogue phones, a fax machine or an
answering machine to the phone ports. You can configure these ports using the
Giga762SX WLAN dsl.
The PABX of the Giga762SX WLAN dsl allows you to connect wireless SIP phones (WLAN
handsets) and PCs with SIP clients (software for Internet telephony) as extensions. You
can use all functions of your PABX for Internet telephony also.
You will need the relevant access data for your VoIP provider to configure Internet
telephony.
Please remember:
You can only be reached via the Internet (VoIP) when an active Internet connection
is established. You can still be called any time via the fixed network, however.
WPS
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) makes it easier to establish and encrypt a wireless network (1 click only). You no longer need to configure and synchronise the individual
components of your wireless network manually.
A wireless network is assigned a name (SSID) and requires the encryption of data traffic
to protect against the risk of unauthorised access. The access point requires authentication with an SSID and - if encryption is activated - a key to allow a WLAN adapter to
access services.
WPS uses the encryption methods WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK. Devices
with WPS can automatically synchronise each other. The predefined
individual SSID and pre-shared key is used for encryption.
WPS is not possible in networks that use WEP encryption or WPA2/
WPA authentication. WPS may be used without encryption.
Clients without WPS can be connected manually.

WPS provides two possibilities for registration:
u Via registration button
The access point (e.g. the Giga762SX WLAN dsl) has a registration button. The registration button is available either:
– as hardware: a specific button (labelled Scan) is provided on the device’s back
panel.
– as software: registration can be started via the WPS Registration page of the
user interface.
In the description that follows, the term registration button refers to both the Scan
button and the corresponding function in the user interface.
Depending on your hardware version, WPS registration may only be possible via the
user interface.
Once the registration button has been activated, the device allows the registration
of a WLAN client (repeater or wireless network adapter) during a two-minute interval.

The first time this button is pressed, the device automatically creates a SSID and a
pre-shared key, if these had not been already set on delivery or has been configured
before manually. If a client activates WPS registration within the two-minute interval, the security data is exchanged and a connection is established. Only one client
may synchronise during the two-minute interval. After the successful synchronization the registration is closed.
The automatically or manually created security data is valid for all further WPS registration processes. If you change this security data again manually or after a factory
reset the clients have to be registered again.
u Via Personal Identification Number (PIN)
The PIN offers improved security for registration. No other device (e.g. in an adjacent
room) can log in unnoticed. A PIN is used for registration which must be identical on
both devices. If a client logs in with this PIN, the security data is synchronised. Usually the th PIN of the access point is used. For security reasons a new PIN can be created.
It is also possible to create the PIN on one of the clients.

server or printer. You can connect a USB hard disk or a printer to the USB interface
of the Giga762SX WLAN dsl and make them available to all users in your network.
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl supports DHCP for dynamic IP configuration of the local
area network, and DNS for domain name mapping.
u Connecting phones and Internet telephony
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl permits
– Internet telephony via the DSL port.
– Fixed network telephony via the analogue port.
– Connection of two analogue phones for Internet telephony and for fixed network
calls as well as connection of wireless SIP phones and PCs with SIP clients for
Internet telephony.
– Connection of an answering machine or fax.
Data transfer for VoIP is handled by the SIP protocol with high connection and voice
quality. If the Internet connection has been interrupted or you do not want to make
a call via VoIP, you can simply make a call via the fixed network (if a fixed network
phone is connected).
u Security functions
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl offers comprehensive security measures:
– Firewall protection against unauthorised access from the Internet
All PCs in the local area network use the Public IP address of the Giga762SX WLAN
dsl for their Internet connections, which makes them 'invisible' on the Internet.
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl only allows access from the Internet if this has been
requested from within the local area network.
With the firewall, the Giga762SX WLAN dsl also offers comprehensive protection
against hacker attacks.
– Service filtering
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl can filter Internet access. Here you determine which
PCs may access which Internet services.
– Access control and encryption for the local area network
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl is delivered with a predefined individual encryption
(WPA2-PSK/WPA-PSK with pre-shared key). You will find the corresponding information at the label on the devices bottom. So, your wirless network is protected
against unauthorised access.
If there are wireless network adapters of your PCs which do not support this
encryption method, you can use other encryption methods and authentication
methods (WEP, WPA/WPA2, 802.1x) to prevent unauthorised access to your wireless LAN or to make data illegible to unauthorised parties.
With MAC access control you can allow wireless access to selected PCs.

Connecting wireless to the PC
Wireless via WPS
If you are using WPS (see page 15), you can easily make a wireless connection to other
WLAN devices via the Scan (registration) button.
ì Press the registration button (Scan) for at least two seconds on the device’s back
panel or activate the corresponding function in the user interface to start WPS registration (see page 87).
ì During the two-minute interval, activate WPS registration of the wireless network
adapter on the PC. The client receives the security data for the Giga762SX WLAN dsl
(SSID and pre-shared key) and is thereby registered.
WLAN LED display during WPS registration:

Flashing quickly with interruption
More than one client tried to register.
Only one client may register during an individual registration phase. If the device indicates by means of the WLAN LED that more than one client has tried to register, there is
no client registerd. You can start WPS registration again after a short time.
If the LED indicates a successful WPS registration, the desired client, however, has no
connection the Giga762SX WLAN dsl and has not been registered successfully, an external device may have connected to your WLAN. In this case, you should modify the WPAPSK key as quickly as possible (see page 88) or perform a factory reset (see page 26) and
perform WPS registration for the clients using a PIN (see page 87).
For additional WPS registration options see chapter "WPS Registration" on page 48.
For the wireless connection of additional PCs without WPS function see page 36.
Wireless without WPS
A wireless connection is made using a wireless network adapter that must be installed
in your PC. This can be an 802.11g or 802.11b-compatible wireless network adapter.
Owing to the superior range and the high data throughput, we recommend that you use
the Gigaset PC Card 54 or the Gigaset USB Adapter 54.
A wireless network is defined by assigning an identical SSID to all the devices.
ì You should therefore enter the SSID for the Giga762SX WLAN dsl in your network
adapter configuration. The default SSID for the Giga762SX WLAN
dsl is shown at the label on the bottom of the device.
If you use a wireless network adapter from the Gigaset range,
enter the SSID using the Gigaset WLAN Adapter Monitor.
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl is delivered with preset individual encryption (WPA2-PSK/ WPA-PSK with pre-shared Key). You will find this key
at the label on the devices bottom.

ì Choose the encryption method WPA2-PSK/ WPA-PSK in the configuration settings of
your network adapter and enter the pre-shared key of you Giga762SX WLAN dsl.
If one of your network adapters do not provide this encryption method, you must
change the encryption method at the Giga762SX WLAN dsl (see page 88) and then
configure the encryption appropriatly for all network adapters. The settings at the
Giga762SX WLAN dsl should be performed only with a wired connected PC)
If the correct SSID and encryption has been entered in your PC's wireless network
adapter, the wireless link will be established automatically.

Checking the operating state
Your Giga762SX WLAN dsl is now ready for use. The LED displays on the front panel of
the Giga762SX WLAN dsl provide information about the operating state (see page 22).
When the device is ready for use, the LEDs light up as follows:
u The Power LED on the front lights up.
u The ADSL LED flashes to indicate that the DSL connection is being synchronised.
Once this process is complete, the ADSL LED lights up permanently.
u The WLAN LED lights up to indicate that the Giga762SX WLAN dsl is ready to establish wireless connections.
The radio link to a PC that is connected by means of a wireless network adapter is
opened automatically provided the network adapter has been configured with the
same SSID as the Giga762SX WLAN dsl. It can take a few seconds for the wireless
connection to be established. The WLAN LED flashes when data is sent or received
via this connection.
u The LAN LEDs light up if a device is connected to the corresponding LAN port.
If this is not the case, refer to the section entitled Troubleshooting on (page 157).

WPS Registration
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) makes it easier to establish a wireless network. Devices
equipped with WPS can create and synchronise an SSID and a WPA key (pre-shared key)
automatically. These security data can be created in different ways:
– They are generated automatically on initial WPS registration.
– They have been previously configured manually.
– The device has been delivered with preset security data.
All you need to do to establish a secure wireless connection is
u for devices with hardware button – to press the registration (or Scan) button on the
access point and on the client or
u for devices without hardware button – to activate the WPS registration in the user
interface of the access point and the client.
For further information, see "WPS" on page 15.

With conventional network adapters, an intruder only needs a device with a WLAN
adapter (e.g. a notebook or a PDA [Personal Digital Assistant]) with an appropriately
configured network card in order to eavesdrop on every communication made via a
nearby wireless LAN.
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl makes use of effective encryption methods to prevent unauthorised eavesdropping as far as possible.
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl is delivered with preset individual encryption (WPA2-PSK/
WPA-PSK with pre-shared Key). You will find this key at the label on the devices bottom.
If all components of your wireless network provide this encryption method there is no
need of any settings in this screen. If not, or if you want to change the preset key (e. g.
if unauthorised persons may have access to your device), you can configure the encryption for your wireless network in the next step.
You can use the following security mechanisms:
u WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK/WPA-PSK (page 54)
u WEP encryption (Wired Equivalent Privacy, see page 56)
You will find further options for setting up data encryption and authentication in the
Advanced Settings menu (page 87).
WPA2/WPA with pre-shared key (PSK)
WPA is a more advanced procedure than WEP for protecting wireless networks. Dynamic
keys, based on TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol), offer increased security. The new
standard WPA2 uses AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) for encryption.

Security Setup Wizard
WPA-PSK is a special WPA mode for private users and users in small companies without
their own authentication server. After a certain period of time (Rekey interval), encryption keys are automatically generated with the pre-shared key, automatically changed
("rekeying") and authenticated between the devices.
Note:
Every PC (network adapter) that requires access to a WPA-protected wireless network
must also support WPA. Information about this can be found in the operating manual
for your network adapter.
This page shows the preset encryption settings.
ì If you do not want to change the encryption settings, click on Next >.
If you yo want to change the pre-shared key:
ì Select WPA2-PSK if WPA2 is supported by all components in the wireless network.
ì Select WPA-PSK only if WPA is supported by all components in the wireless network.
ì Select WPA2-PSK / WPA-PSK if only some components in the wireless network support WPA.
ì Enter a key of your choice in the Pre-shared key field (min. 8 to max. 63 characters)
and confirm it by repeating the entry. You must set up the same pre-shared key for
all wirelessly connected PCs. Use a combination of letters, digits and special characters.
ì By clicking the Unmask button, a message showing the preshared key is output in readable characters.

WEP encryption
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is an encryption for radio signals in wireless networks
and meets the IEEE 802.11 standard.
If you transmit data wirelessly and not all components in your wireless network support
the higher security standard WPA (page 55), we recommend that you activate WEP
Encryption.
WEP encryption and WPS registration cannot be used together in a wireless network.
You can choose either the standard 64-bit key or the more robust 128-bit key. The keys
are generated in hexadecimal or in ASCII format. You must use the same keys for encryption and decryption for the Giga762SX WLAN dsl and all your wireless network adapters.
ì Select the Key length: 64 bits or 128 bits.
ì Select the Input type, i.e. whether the key is to be entered manually or generated
automatically by means of a Passphrase.
Manual key entry
ì Select the Key type, Hex or ASCII.
If you select Hex as the key type you can use the characters 0 to 9 and A to F.
– With a 64-bit encryption depth, the key is 10 characters long.
– With a 128-bit encryption depth, the key is 26 characters long.
If you select ASCII as the key type, you can use the characters 0 to 9, A to Z, a to z
plus the special characters in the ASCII character set.
– With a 64-bit encryption depth, the key is 5 characters long.
– With a 128-bit encryption depth, the key is 13 characters long.

Attack Detection
If the firewall functions of the Giga762SX WLAN dsl are activated, the device monitors
and limits access to incoming data traffic via the DSL connection with a function called
"Stateful Packet Inspection" (SPI). This allows the Giga762SX WLAN dsl to detect and prevent certain types of attack from the Internet, such as Denial-of-Service (DoS). DoS
attacks are aimed at devices and networks with Internet connections. The aim is not so
much to steal data as to paralyse the computer or network to such an extent that the
network resources are no longer available. A typical hacker attack involves, for example,
a remote computer acting in place of the paralysed device and receiving the data
intended for the device.
You can use the Attack Detection function to change the standard firewall settings.

Setting up the NAT function
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl comes equipped with the NAT (Network Address Translation)
function. With address mapping, several users in the local network can access the Internet via one or more public IP addresses. All the local IP addresses are assigned to the
router's public IP address by default.
One of the characteristics of NAT is that data from the Internet is not allowed into the
local network unless it has been explicitly requested by one of the PCs in the network.
Most Internet applications can run behind the NAT firewall without any problems. For
example, if you request Internet pages or send and receive e-mails, the request for data
from the Internet comes from a PC in the local network, and so the router allows the
data through. The router opens precisely one port for the application. A port in this context is an internal PC address, via which the data is exchanged between the Internet and
a client on a PC in the local network. Communicating via a port is subject to the rules of
a particular protocol (TCP or UDP).
If an external application tries to send a call to a PC in the local network, the router will
block it. There is no open port via which the data could enter the local network.
Some applications, such as games on the Internet, require several links, i.e. several ports
so that the players can communicate with each other. In addition, these applications
must also be permitted to send requests from other users on the Internet to users in the
local network. These applications cannot be run if Network Address Translation (NAT)
has been activated.
Using port forwarding (the forwarding of requests to particular ports) the router is
forced to send requests from the Internet for a certain service, for example a game, to
the appropriate port(s) on the PC on which the game is running.
Port triggering is a special variant of port forwarding. Unlike port forwarding, the
Giga762SX WLAN dsl forwards the data from the port block to the PC which has previously sent data to the Internet via a certain port (trigger port). This means that approval
for the data transfer is not tied to one specific PC in the network, rather to the port numbers of the required Internet service.
Where configuration is concerned, this means:
u You have to define a so-called trigger port for the application and also the protocol
(TCP or UDP) that this port uses. You then assign the public ports that are to be
opened for the application to this trigger port.
u The router checks all outgoing data for the port number and protocol. If it identifies
a match of port and protocol for a defined trigger port, then it will open the assigned
public ports and notes the IP address of the PC that sent the data. If data comes back
from the Internet via one of these public ports, the router allows
it through and directs it to the appropriate PC. A trigger event
always comes from a PC within the local network. If a trigger port
is addressed from outside, the router simply ignores it.

Configuring Advanced Settings
Note:
u An application that is configured for port triggering can only be run by one user in
the local network at a time.
u As long as the public ports are open, they can be used by unauthorised persons to
gain access to a PC in the local network.
When the Giga762SX WLAN dsl is supplied, the NAT function (Network Address Translation) is activated, i.e. all IP addresses of PCs in the local network are converted to the

Opening the firewall for a selected PC (Exposed Host)
You can set up a client in your local network to be a so-called "exposed host" (DMZ). Your
device will then forward all incoming data traffic from the Internet to this client. You can
then, for example, operate your own Web server on one of the clients in your local network and make it accessible to Internet users.
As the exposed host, the local client is directly visible to the Internet and therefore particularly vulnerable to attacks (e.g. hacker attacks). Only activate this function if it is
absolutely necessary (e.g. to operate a Web server) and other functions (e.g. port forwarding) are not adequate. In this case you should take appropriate measures for the
clients concerned.
Note:
Only one PC per public IP address can be set up as an Exposed Host (see also Port Forwarding on page 76).

Dynamic DNS
Any service you provide on the Internet can be accessed via a Domain name. Your
router's Public IP address is assigned to this domain name. If your Internet service provider assigns the IP address for your local network's WAN connection dynamically, the IP
address of the router can change. The assignment to the domain name will no longer
be valid and your service will no longer be available.
In this case you must ensure that the assignment of the IP address to the domain name
is updated regularly. This task is performed by the dynamic DNS service (DynDNS). You
can use the DynDNS service to assign the Giga762SX WLAN dsl an
individual fixed domain name on the Internet even if it does not have
a static IP address.
Various Internet service providers offer a free DynDNS service.
If you use the service of a DynDNS provider, your service can be
reached on the Internet as a subdomain of one of the DynDNS service domains.

Defining the private IP address for the Giga762SX WLAN dsl
On this screen you can change the device's IP address. The preset IP address is 10.0.0.2.
This is the Private IP address of the Giga762SX WLAN dsl. This is the address under which
the device can be reached in the local network. It can be freely assigned from the block
of available addresses. The IP address under which the Giga762SX WLAN dsl can be
reached from outside is assigned by the Internet service provider. The default Subnet
mask for the local network administered by the Giga762SX WLAN dsl is 255.255.255.0.
ì If you want to assign a different IP address to the Giga762SX WLAN dsl, enter your
chosen IP address in the boxes next to IP address.
Please make sure to note which subnet mask is set when assigning the IP address.
The preset subnet mask defines that the first three parts of the IP address must be
identical for all network components (including routers).

We recommend that you use an address from a block that is reserved for private use.
This address block is 10.0.0.1 to 10.255.255.254.
ì Adjust the Subnet mask if necessary.
The Subnet mask specifies how many address parts of the IP address must be identical for all network components (including routers).
Notes:
New settings can only be made after the Giga762SX WLAN dsl has been rebooted. If
necessary, reconfigure the IP address on your PC (including one that is statically
assigned) so that it matches the new configuration.
Configuring the DHCP server
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl has a DHCP server for which the factory setting is active. Consequently, the IP addresses of the PCs are automatically assigned by the Giga762SX
WLAN dsl.
Note:
u If the DHCP server for the Giga762SX WLAN dsl is activated, you can configure the
network setting on the PC so that the option Obtain an IP address automatically
is set up. For further information, refer to the section entitled "Configuring the
local area network" on the CD-ROM.
u If you deactivate the DHCP server, you will have to assign a static IP address for the
PCs that use the network settings.
ì To activate the DHCP server, select On.
ì If the DHCP server is active, you can define a Lease time. The least time indicates
how long the client may use the allocated IP configuration.
Note:
If you select Never expires, the IP addresses are never changed. Activate this
option if you want to make NAT or firewall settings using the IP addresses of the
PCs; otherwise you have to assign static IP addresses to these PCs.
ì Define the range of IP addresses the Giga762SX WLAN dsl should use to automati-
cally assign IP addresses to the PCs. Define the First issued IP address and the Last
issued IP address.
ì If you want to define a different Default gateway in your local area network instead
of the Giga762SX WLAN dsl, enter the IP address of this default gateways in the relevant boxes.
Entering the DNS server

Channel
All clients in the network use the set radio channel for wireless data transfer. You can
choose between various channels, depending on your current location.
ì Select Automatic so that the best channel for transmitting the data is used automatically.
SSID
For the wireless network components to be able to communicate with one another, you
must use the same SSID (Service Set Identifier).
The default SSID for the Giga762SX WLAN dsl is shown at the label on the bottom of the
device. For security reasons you can change this SSID and deactivate SSID broadcast (for
information see below).
Note:
If a WPS registration (see page 48) was performed before manual configuration, you
should not change this SSID here manually. Otherwise, the registered clients will no
longer have access to your wireless network.
Enter a character string of your choice. The SSID is case-sensitive. It can contain up to
32 characters. Use a combination of letters, digits and special characters.
Note:
The connection to the wireless network adapters will be interrupted until you have
entered the new SSID in them as well.
SSID broadcast
If this option is enabled (default setting), the Giga762SX WLAN dsl will send the SSID in
all data transfers and the SSID of the Giga762SX WLAN dsl will be displayed on PCs that
have a wireless network adapter. In this case, hackers could use the SSID to detect your
network.
If you deactivate SSID broadcast, the SSID of the Giga762SX WLAN dsl will not be displayed. This increases protection against unauthorised access to your wireless network.
Make a note of the SSID. You will need it to log on to the PC.
To protect your wireless network, you should also enable encryption of data transmissions (page 87).
ì Select Off to deactivate SSID broadcast.
Transmission mode
The IEEE 802.11g standard permits data transfer up to 54 Mbit/s, and the IEEE 802.11b
standard up to 11 Mbit/s. Choose IEEE 802.11g only to ensure the best possible data
transfer rates in your network. To operate clients with older wireless network adapters
in your network, select IEEE 802.11b/g (mixed).
ì Select the required transmission mode for your wireless network.

The registration progress is shown in the window.
You can also follow the registration process via the LED display (see page 33).
If more than one client tries to register within the two minutes, an error message

If an external client succeeds in registering, the LED (see page 33) displays a successful WPS registration. The desired client in you network, however, has no connection to the Giga762SX WLAN dsl and displays a registration failure. In this case
you should change the pre-shared key (WPA2-PSK/WPA-PSK) as soon as possible
and then perform WPS registration via PIN (see below).
– Send own PIN
An automatically generated PIN is shown.
If you want to create a new PIN, click Generate PIN.
Click OK to activate your settings.
Enter the generated PIN on all WLAN partner devices that are to establish a

– Enter partner device PIN
You would use this option if you have created a PIN at the desired client. Enter the
PIN of the WLAN partner device and click OK to activate your settings.
Note:
If you have activated access control via the MAC address filter, you have to include the
clients in the MAC address list before registering via WPS (see page 95).
Setting encryption
Note:
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl is delivered with preset individual encryption (WPA2-PSK/
WPA-PSK with pre-shared key). You should change this settings only, if not all components of your wireless network provide this encryption method, or if you want to
change the preset key for security reasons, or if you want to use the WDS repeater
function.
If you change the preset key after having registered PCs at the Giga762SX WLAN dsl
via WPS or manually, you must register all PCs again manually or via WPS.
If you are sending data over radio channels, we recommend that you activate encryption (WEP or WPA) on the components in the wireless network. WPA offers greater security than WEP. You should therefore select WPA encryption if it is supported by all components in your wireless network.
WPA also supports the use of an authentication server.

WPA with a pre-shared key (WPA-PSK)
WPA-PSK is a special WPA mode for private users and users in small companies without
their own authentication server. After a certain period of time (Rekey interval), encryption keys are automatically generated with the pre-shared key, automatically changed
("rekeying") and authenticated between the devices.
The standard of encryption available to you depends on the components in the wireless
network. Every PC (network adapter) that requires access to a WPA-protected wireless
network must also support WPA. To find out whether and how you can use WPA on your
PC, read your network adapter's user guide. If all components support WPA2, select
WPA2-PSK. If you are using network adapters that only support WPA, select WPA-PSK.
Select WPA2-PSK / WPA-PSK if both methods are used in your network. Your device
then automatically defines the best possible way to protect your data for each client.
The entries described below are identical for both options.
ì Select the required option in the Security field.
ì Enter a key in the Pre-shared key field (up to 32 characters) and confirm it by entering it again. Use a combination of letters, digits and special characters.

ì Apply the settings by clicking OK.
WPA and WPA2 with authentication server
In large networks (e.g. in companies) WPA enables the use of an additional authentication service. In this case, user access is controlled by user accounts and passwords, in
addition to WPA encryption. A RADIUS server acts as an authentication server. You can
select the new WPA2 standard if it is supported by all components in your wireless network. Select WPA2 / WPA if you are using devices that only support WPA.

Note:
If you activate MAC access control, you must at least add the PC on which you are configuring the Giga762SX WLAN dsl to the list. Otherwise, you will have no access to the
user interface and will receive an appropriate error message.
If you have inadvertently denied all PCs access to the Giga762SX WLAN dsl, you have
two options:
u You can completely reset the Giga762SX WLAN dsl (page 26).
u You can connect a PC to the Giga762SX WLAN dsl using one of the LAN connec-
tions. As MAC access control only affects PCs that are connected wirelessly, you
can use this PC to change the configuration.
Repeater function (WDS)
WDS (Wireless Distribution System) allows you to extend the range of your wireless network using a repeater. A repeater located at the outer range of a wireless network
ensures that data is forwarded between WLAN clients in this wireless network and clients within its own wireless range. Repeaters and access points thereby form a common
wireless network within which all clients can be moved about freely. Clients automatically set up a connection to the next access point / repeater (roaming). For security purposes you must determine which access points / repeaters are to form a common wireless network.
If you want to use a repeater in your wireless network you must activate the Wireless
Distribution System (WDS) function.
Note:
WDS can only be used with WEP encryption or without encryption. If you use WPA-PSK
encryption (default) you have to change the encryption of your wireless network. For
inforamation refer to the section "Setting encryption" on page 88.
ì In the Advanced Settings menu, select: Wireless Network – Repeater (WDS)
ì To activate WDS select the On option next to Wireless distribution system.
The environment is scanned for wireless networks in range. If the search has been completed successfully the networks are displayed.

Setting up Internet telephony (VoIP)
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl allows you to make telephone calls via the Internet using an
analogue telephone and also via the fixed network as usual. For Internet telephony
(VoIP), you require access authorisation from your service provider and the relevant
access data. To make calls, you have to enter this data along with other configuration
settings under Advanced Settings in the Telephony - VoIP menu.
You can connect a base station for handsets or fax machines to the two telephone ports
of the Giga762SX WLAN dsl analogue phone. In addition, you can set up additional
extensions for Internet and fixed network calls using SIP clients (as WLAN handsets or in
wired or wireless mode on PCs).
The menu comprises the following functions:
VoIP
Enter the basic data from your service provider here (page 99).
Extensions
Set up the functions for internal extensions here (page 102).
Dialing Plans
Specify numbers here that are to be dialled only via the fixed network
or only via the Internet. You can also enter a call-by-call provider for the
fixed network (page 106).
Define an area code (page 106).
Quick Dial
Specify speed dial numbers or names here for phone numbers you use
frequently (see page 107)
Note:
If you do not specify any of your own dialling plans, then the default settings will be
used as entered in the Telephony menu under Dialing Plans. Emergency numbers
are directed via the fixed network, while all other calls are made via the Internet.
Important information:
u You cannot make calls if there is a power failure, even the emergency numbers are
not accessible then.
u If VoIP is not set up, you will always make calls via the fixed network. The dialling
plans will not apply in this case (page 106).
u Check these dialling plans (page 106) and change them if you have agreed special
phone tariffs with another provider.
u Do not change the default setting for the Internet connection mode (= "permanent
connection") if you are using VoIP (page 44). You can only be called via VoIP if this
setting is used. Remember, though, that this setting can result in high connection
costs if you have agreed a time-based tariff with your Internet service provider.

Extensions
Your Giga762SX WLAN dsl allows you to configure up to six internal extensions that you
can use for making calls via the fixed network or via VoIP. Two of these extensions are
connected to your Giga762SX WLAN dsl via the Phone 1 and Phone 2 ports, while the
remaining extensions are connections for SIP clients. You can assign each extension the
relevant line (fixed network or VoIP account) for incoming and outgoing calls and make
other settings for each extension (e.g. call waiting, call forwarding, caller display).
The process for configuring extensions, which use the two telephone ports of the
Giga762SX WLAN dsl, is somewhat different to that for the SIP extensions. The latter
must be VoIP telephones, which are connected in wired or wireless mode to the
Giga762SX WLAN dsl, or PCs with a SIP client, which are connected to the Giga762SX
WLAN dsl.

Using the USB port
Schablone 2005_07_27
Using the USB port
Your Giga762SX WLAN dsl is equipped with a USB port that can be used, for example,
to connect a printer for use as a network printer or a USB mass storage device for use as
a file server. This chapter describes which settings you have to define on your computer
to use these functions.
Installing the printer port for network printers
The Windows Vista, Windows XP or Windows 2000 operating system is a prerequisite
for connecting a printer under Windows.
Introduction
A network printer is a printer on which you can print your documents without it being
connected to your PC, for example to LPT1, the parallel interface. The advantage of this
is that you only need this printer once in your network. All PCs for which it is released
can access it and work with it.
Note:
For multi-function devices (combination of printer, copier or fax) only the printer
functionality is supported.
In most cases, a printer of this type is connected to another PC in the network. While this
offers the advantage referred to above, it has serious disadvantages:
u The printer can only be used by others if the PC to which it is connected is switched
on.
u The print job you send to the PC to which the printer is connected reduces the performance (resources) of this PC.
If you use the USB port on the Giga762SX WLAN dsl for your printer, you have all the
advantages of a network printer without the disadvantages referred to above:
u The network, and consequently also the printer, is always ready (the Giga762SX
WLAN dsl and the printer itself must be switched on, of course).
u As it is connected to the USB printer port on your Giga762SX WLAN dsl, it does not
detract from the performance of any other PC in the network.
To facilitate this option you must first set up a printer port on each PC that is to use the
network printer. A printer port is an interface on the PC that forwards the print job to an
IP address within the network.
Once you have set up this port you must install the printer driver.

Note:
Before starting to set up the printer please make sure that a printer is connected to the
USB port of the Giga762SX WLAN dsl and that the printer has been identified. You can
check this in the user interface via Advanced Settings – USB – Print Server.
Installing a standard TCP/IP printer port under Windows Vista
You can use the standard TCP/IP port driver available with this operating system. Make
sure that the Giga762SX WLAN dsl is connected and is available in the network. A printer
does not have to be connected to the USB port on your Giga762SX WLAN dsl at this
point.

of printer ports.
ì To change the name, click in the Port Name field and enter a name. Name this port,
for example, Gigaset_Port.

Instructions for setting up a printer on the PC
Once you have installed the printer port you still cannot start printing. The printer port
is nothing more than an additional interface on your PC, comparable with the USB port.
It means that any printer you install on this port is also regarded as a local printer even
though it is located in the network and possibly not directly near you.
You still need to connect the printer to this port and configure it.
ì Connect the printer to the USB port on your Giga762SX WLAN dsl.
The printer is installed in the same way as any other printer:
ì Go through Start – Settings – Printers and click Add Printer.
ì In the window that opens click Next.
ì Proceed as instructed by the Add Printer Wizard. Please note:
In the window in which you are prompted to specify the location of the printer you
should select Local printer (usually the default setting).
ì Then click Next.
ì Continue to install the printer. Select your printer and click Next.
ì When the window in which you are prompted to enter the type of connection
appears, double-click the port name Gigaset_port.
ì Then continue to install the printer and finish the installation.
Note:
The printer server of the Giga762SX WLAN dsl does not work bi-directionally. It does
not evaluate any of the printer's response messages. For this reason please make sure
that your printer is also only configured uni-directionally.

Symptom
Possible cause and solutions
After a WPS registration
attempt, the WLAN LED
continues to flash for some
time and the required client
was not registered.
u More than one client has tried to register.
ì Repeat registration after a short interval.
u MAC access control is activated, but the desired cli-
ent is not in the MAC address list.
ì Add the client to the MAC address list (see
page 58).
After a WPS registration the
WLAN LED shows successful
registration but the desired
client was not registered.
You cannot open a connection to the Giga762SX
WLAN dsl from a wireless
device.
If the MAC address filter is enabled a WPS registration
attempt can not be detected by the device. In this case
LED signalling is not possible.
Maybe an external device has registered with your network.
ì Change the WPA PSK key manually as soon as

Symptom
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl or
other PCs cannot be reached
by a PC in the connected
LAN using a ping command.
Possible cause and solutions
ì Make sure that TCP/IP has been installed and configured on all the PCs in the local network.
ì Check that the IP addresses have been correctly
configured. In most cases you can use the DHCP
function of the Giga762SX WLAN dsl to assign
dynamic addresses to the PCs in the LAN. In this
case, you have to configure the TCP/IP settings of all
the PCs so that they obtain the IP address automatically.
If you configure IP addresses in the LAN manually,
remember to use the same subnet mask for all PCs
in the LAN. This means that the masked part of the
IP address on each PC and on the Giga762SX WLAN
dsl has to be identical.
No connection to the configuration environment of the
Giga762SX WLAN dsl.
ì
Check whether Ethernet is specified as the Internet
connection type if the PC is connected to the LAN4/
WAN port (page 62). If this type of connection is
specified, only an external modem can be connected to the LAN4/WAN port. Change the connection type or select a new LAN connection for the PC.
Use the ping command to check whether you can
establish a network connection to the Giga762SX
WLAN dsl.
ì Check the network cable between the PC you want
to use to administer the device and the Giga762SX
WLAN dsl.
ì If the PC you want to use for administering the
device is in the router's local network, make sure
that you are using the correct IP address range
(see above).
ì If the PC you want to use for administering the
device is not in the router's local area network, this
PC must be authorised for remote management.

ì Your VoIP configuration is not set up with the cor-
rect Codecs. Contact your VoIP provider and assign
the correct Codecs (see page 100).
Reset the Giga762SX WLAN dsl (page 26).
Password forgotten or lost.
ì
You cannot access a
resource (drive or printer)
on a different PC.
Warning: Please bear in mind that this will return all
the configuration settings to the factory settings.
ì Make sure that TCP/IP has been installed and configured on all the PCs in the local network and that
the PCs all belong to the same workgroup.
ì Check whether the resource has been released on
the PC in question and whether you have the necessary access rights.
ì Printing: Check whether the printer has been set up
as a network printer.

Access point
An access point, such as the Giga762SX WLAN dsl, is the centre of a wireless local network (WLAN). It handles the connection of the wireless linked network components and
regulates the data traffic in the wireless network. The access point also serves as an
interface to other networks, for example an existing Ethernet LAN or via a modem to the
Internet. The operating mode of wireless networks with an access point is called
Infrastructure mode.
Ad-hoc mode
Ad-hoc mode describes wireless local networks (WLANs), in which the network components set up a spontaneous network without an Access point, for example several Notebooks in a conference. All the network components are peers. They must have a wireless Network adapter.
ADSL /ADSL2+
Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) and ADSL 2+ are special types of DSL data
transfer technology.
AES
Advanced Encryption Standard
AES is an encryption system, which was published as a standard in October 2000 by the
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). It is used for WPA encryption. A
distinction is made between the three AES variants AES-128, AES-192 and AES-256 on
the basis of the key length.
Auto connect
Auto connect means that applications such as Web browser, Messenger and E-mail
automatically open an Internet connection when they are launched. This can lead to
high charges if you are not using Flat rate. To avoid this, you can select the manual connect option on the Giga762SX WLAN dsl.
Bridge
A bridge connects several network segments to form a joint network, for example to
make a TCP/IP network. The segments can have different physical characteristics, for
example different cabling as with Ethernet and wireless LANs. Linking individual segments via bridges allows local networks of practically unlimited size.

Broadcast
A broadcast is a data packet not directed to a particular recipient but to all the network
components in the network. The Giga762SX WLAN dsl does not pass on broadcast packets; they always remain within the local network (LAN) it administers.

BSSID
Basic Service Set ID
BSSID permits unique differentiation of one wireless network (WLAN) from another. In
Infrastructure mode, the BSSID is the MAC address of the Access point. In wireless networks in Ad-hoc mode, the BSSID is the MAC address of any one of the participants.
Client
A client is an application that requests a service from a server. For example, an HTTP client on a PC in a local network requests data, i.e. Web pages from an HTTP server on the
Internet. Frequently the network component (e.g. the PC) on which the client application is running is also called a client.
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
DHCP handles the automatic assignment of IP addresses to network components. It was
developed because of the complexity involved in defining IP addresses in large networks
– especially the Internet – as participants frequently move, drop out or new ones join.
A DHCP server automatically assigns the connected network components (DHCP Clients) Dynamic IP addresses from a defined IP pool range thus saving a great deal of configuration work. In addition, the address blocks can be used more effectively: Since not
all participants are on the network at the same time, the same IP address can be
assigned to different network components in succession as and when required.
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl includes a DHCP server and uses it to assign automatic IP
addresses to PCs in the local network. You can specify that the IP addresses for certain
PCs are never changed.
DHCP server
See DHCP
DMZ
Demilitarised Zone
DMZ describes a part of a network that is outside the Firewall. A DMZ is set up, as it
were, between a network you want to protect (e.g. a LAN) and a non-secure network
(e.g. the Internet). A DMZ is useful if you want to offer Server services on the Internet
that are not to be run from behind the firewall for security reasons or if Internet applications do not work properly behind a firewall. A DMZ permits unrestricted access from
the Internet to only one or a few network components, while the other network components remain secure behind the firewall.

DNS
Domain Name System
DNS permits the assignment of IP addresses to computers or Domain names that are
easier to remember. A DNS server must administer this information for each LAN with
an Internet connection. As soon as a page on the Internet is called up, the browser
obtains the corresponding IP address from the DNS server so that it can establish the
connection.
On the Internet, the assignment of domain names to IP addresses follows a hierarchical
system. A local PC only knows the address of the local name server. This in turn knows
all the addresses of the PCs in the local network and the superordinate name servers,
which again know addresses or the next superordinate name servers.
DNS server
See DNS
Domain name
The domain name is the reference to one or more Web servers on the Internet. The
domain name is mapped via the DNS service to the corresponding IP address.
DoS attack
Denial of Service
A DoS attack is a particular form of hacker attack directed at computers and networks
with a connection to the Internet. The aim is not so much to steal data but to paralyse
the computer or network so severely that the network resources are no longer available.
A typical hacker attack involves making a remote computer announce that it is acting for
the paralysed computer, for example, and receive the data intended for you.
DSL
Digital Subscriber Line
DSL is a data transfer technique in which a connection to the Internet can be run at high
speed over normal telephone lines. A DSL connection is provided by an Internet service
provider. It requires a DSL modem.
Dynamic IP address
A dynamic IP address is assigned to a network component automatically by DHCP. This
means that the IP address of a network component can change with every login or at
certain intervals.

DynDNS
Dynamic DNS
The assignment of Domain names and IP addresses is handled by the Domain Name
Service (DNS). This service is now enhanced with so-called Dynamic DNS (DynDNS) for
Dynamic IP addresses. This enables the use of a network component with a dynamic IP
address as a Server on the Internet. DynDNS ensures that a service can always be
addressed on the Internet under the same domain name regardless of the current IP
address.
Encryption
Encryption protects confidential information against unauthorised access. With an
encryption system, data packets can be sent securely over a network. The Giga762SX
WLAN dsl offers WEP encryption and WPA for secure data transfer over wireless networks.
Ethernet
Ethernet is a network technology for local networks (LANs) defined by the IEEE as standard IEEE 802.3. Ethernet uses a base-band cable with a transfer rate of 10 or 100 Mbps
or 1 Gbps.
File Server

IEEE 802.11
IEEE 802.11 is a standard for wireless LANs operating in the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band. In
so-called Infrastructure mode, terminals can be connected to a base station (Access
point) or they can connect with each other spontaneously (Ad-hoc mode).
IGMP
Internet Group Management Protocol
IGMP is an Internet Protocol that enables an Internet computer to inform neighbouring
routers that it is a member of a multicast group. With multicasting, a computer can send
content on the Internet to several other computers that have registered an interest in
the first computer's content. Multicasting can, for example, be used for multimedia programs for media streaming to recipients that have set up multicast group membership.
Infrastructure mode
Infrastructure mode is a way of operating wireless local networks (WLANs) in which an
Access point handles the data traffic. Network components cannot establish a direct
connection with each other as is the case in Ad-hoc mode.

Internet
The Internet is a wide-area network (WAN) linking several million users around the
world. A number of Protocols have been created for exchanging data, and these are
known collectively as TCP/IP protocol stack. All participants on the Internet can be identified by an IP address. Servers are addressed by Domain names (e.g. siemens.com).
Domain names are assigned to IP addresses by the Domain Name Service (DNS).
These are some of the main Internet services:
u Electronic mail (e-mail)
u The World Wide Web (WWW)
u File transfer (FTP)
u Discussion forums (Usenet / Newsgroups)
Internet service provider
An Internet service provider offers access to the Internet for a fee.
Internet telephony
Transmission of voice via the Internet (Voice over IP).
IP
Internet protocol
The IP Protocol is one of the TCP/IP protocols. It is responsible for addressing parties in a
network using IP addresses and routes data from the sender to the recipient. It decides
the paths along which the data packets travel from the sender to the recipient in a complex network (routing).
IP address
The IP address is the unique network-wide address of a network component in a network based on the TCP/IP protocols (e.g. in a local area network (LAN) or on the Internet). The IP address has four parts (each with up to three-position digit sequences) separated by full stops (e.g. 10.0.0.2). The IP address comprises the network number and
the computer number. Depending on the Subnet mask, one, two or three parts form the
network number; the remainder form the computer number. You can find out the IP
address of your PC using the ipconfig command.
IP addresses can be assigned manually (see Static IP address) or automatically (see
Dynamic IP address).
On the Internet Domain names are normally used instead of the IP addresses. The DNS
is used to assign domain names to IP addresses.
The Giga762SX WLAN dsl has a Private IP address and a Public IP
address.

NAT
Network Address Translation
NAT is a method for converting IP addresses (Private IP addresses) within a network into
one or several Public IP addresses on the Internet. With NAT, several network components in a LAN can share the router's public IP address to connect to the Internet. The
network components of the local network are hidden behind the router's IP address registered on the Internet. Because of this security function, NAT is frequently used as part
of the Firewall of a network. If you want to make services on a PC in the local network
available on the Internet despite NAT, you can configure the Giga762SX WLAN dsl as a
Virtual server.
Network
A network is a group of devices connected in wired or wireless mode so that they can
share resources such as data and peripherals. A general distinction is made between
local networks (LANs) and wide-area networks (WANs).
Network adapter
The network adapter is the hardware device that creates the connection between a network component and a local network. The connection can be wired or wireless. An Ethernet network card is an example of a wired network adapter. The Gigaset PC Card 54
and the Gigaset USB Adapter 54 are examples of wireless network adapters.
A network adapter has a unique address, the MAC address.
Public IP address
The public IP address (also known as the global IP address) is a network component's
address on the Internet. It is assigned by the Internet service provider. Devices that create a link from a LAN to the Internet, such as the Giga762SX WLAN dsl, have a public
and a Private IP address.
PBX
Private Branch Exchange
PBX is the English acronym for a public branch exchange, which allows connection and
configuration of extensions and telephone functions.
Port
Data is exchanged between two applications in a network across a port. The port
number addresses an application within a network component. The combination of IP
address/port number uniquely identifies the recipient or sender of a data packet within
a network. Some applications (e.g. Internet services such as HTTP or FTP) work with
fixed port numbers; others are allocated a free port number whenever they need one.

Simple Network Management Protocol
The SNMP Protocol is part of the TCP/IP protocol family. It provides a simple procedure
for administering the network based on a system of shared information for management data and network management messages (known as traps) and reports the occurrence of events within the monitored network (e.g. an alarm message or notification of
configuration changes).
SSID
Service Set Identifier
The SSID is used to identify the stations in a wireless network (WLAN). All wireless network components with the same SSID form a common network. The SSID can be
assigned by the network operator.
Static IP address
A static IP address is assigned to a network component manually during network configuration. Unlike the Dynamic IP address, a static (fixed) IP address never changes.
Subnet
A subnet divides a network into smaller units.
Subnet mask
The subnet mask determines how parts of IP addresses of a network represent the network number and how many the computer number.
If the subnet mask is in a network that is administered by the Giga762SX WLAN dsl, for
example 255.255.255.0, that means the first three parts of the IP address form the network number and only the final part can be used for assigning host numbers. The first
three parts of the IP address of all network components are therefore always the same
in this case.

WLAN
Wireless LAN
Wireless LANs enable network components to communicate with a network using radio
waves as the transport medium. A wireless LAN can be connected as an extension to a
wired LAN or it can form the basis for a new network. The basic element of a wireless
network is the cell. This is the area where the wireless communication takes place. A
WLAN can be operated in Ad-hoc mode or Infrastructure mode.
WLAN is currently specified in Standard IEEE 802.11. The Giga762SX WLAN dsl complies
with Standard 802.11g.
WPA
WPA is a new standard-conformant solution for greater security in wireless networks.
WPA is meant to replace the existing WEP standard (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and offers
more reliable encryption and authentication methods.
WPA-PSK
WPA Pre-shared Key
Variant of WPA data encryption in which new keys are automatically generated at regular intervals by means of a keyword (pre-shared key). The key is updated after defined

WPS
Wi-Fi Protected Setup
WPS simplifies the setup of wireless networks.
WPS automatically sets up secure wireless networks. Access points (or clients with
included registrar or external registrar) can automatically generate a network ID (SSID)
and WPA-PSK Encryption if this was not performed previously. Clients can be connected
either by entering a PIN or using special registration buttons on the access point and client.
XR
eXtended Range
XR technology extends the range in a WLAN and in so doing allows improved coverage
of the desired range in home or small office networks. Activating this function at the
access point can extend the range to the network adapters considerably, though the
data transfer rate is reduced as a result.
