Network Name
All clients on the local wireless network share a common Service Set
IDentifier (SSID) or network name. This name is required to establish
connection between the Ericsson W3x and the wireless client(s), and to
distinguish the wireless network from any other(s) that may be in use
nearby. Only devices configured with the same network name as the one
set on the Ericsson W3x can obtain access to it.
Figure 15 – Wireless LAN: Network Name (SSID) page
The network name is case-sensitive (distinguish between uppercase and
lowercase letters) and can be changed to any combination of numbers (0 –
9), letters (a – z), and hyphens (-) with a maximum length of 32 characters.
If the “Enable SSID broadcast” option is selected, your local wireless
client(s) will find the network name when scanning the air. If not, the
network name is hidden and has to be manually provided to the wireless
client(s).
If you want to change the preconfigured network name (MBR), type a new
name in the “Network name (SSID):” field and also select if the SSID shall
be hidden or not.

Wireless LAN Authentication
All communication on the wireless LAN can be protected from potential
intruders and eavesdroppers through standard authentication and
encryption methods.

1/1551-CRH 102 168 Uen Rev A 2008-12-16
Configuration and Management
Authentication is used to restrict access to the wireless network and
encryption is the translation of data into a form that cannot be easily
understood by unauthorized users. The encrypted data can only be sent
and received by users with access to a private encryption key.
Note:
Make sure that the operating system(s) and Wireless LAN
interface(s) of the wireless client(s) support the selected
authentication method.
Figure 16 – Wireless LAN: Authentication page
Select one of the authentication methods from the “Authentication” dropdown list. The available options are as follows:
•
Open (No security);
f you select “Open” as authentication method no client configuration is
needed but be aware of that the WLAN will now be open without any
kind of security.
•
WEP-64, WEP-128 (Low security);
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is considered to be a low security
option. WEP encrypted data is translated into blocks of either 64 bits
length or 128 bits length.
•
WPA, WPA2 (High security);
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and its successor WPA2 are the most
reliable security options. WPA encryption uses the Temporal Key
Integrity Protocol (TKIP) while WPA2 encryption follows the Advanced
Encryption Standard (AES). AES offers a higher level of security and is
approved for sensitive corporate and government data transmission.

predefined range of available IP addresses.
The preconfigured range – from 92.168.1.2 to
192.168.1.100 is suitable for most local
networks.
The DHCP server uses the concept of a
“lease”, that is the amount of time that a given
IP address will be valid for a specific device. If
the lease time expires and the device is still
connected, the lease is automatically renewed.
The preconfigured lease time is 7200 seconds
(2 hours) and a valid value must be within the
range 60 and 2147483647 seconds.
Note:
If you want to configure a connected device with a static IP
address, make sure that the address is outside the DHCP server IP
address range.
Before changing any of the DHCP server settings, read the following:
•
The DHCP server IP address range has to be on the same subnet as
the LAN IP address on the Ericsson W3x.
•
The DHCP server IP address range must not include the LAN IP
address on the Ericsson W3x.
•
If port forwarding rules have been created, those settings have to be

3.6.8
WLAN Security
All communication on the wireless network can be protected using different
authentication and encryption methods. The most common is to encrypt the
WLAN using an encryption method such as WEP, WPA and WPA2.
1/1551-CRH 102 168 Uen Rev A 2008-12-16
43
Configuration and Management
Which authentication and encryption method that should be used depends
on what is supported by the connected wireless client(s).
Note:
Each wireless client must be configured to use exactly the same
security mode and key/passphrase as the Ericsson W3x or they will
not be able to connect.
In the “Authentication” drop-down list you select which type of
authentication/encryption you want to use for your WLAN. The following
subsections describe the authentication methods supported by the Ericsson
W3x.
3.6.8.1
Open (No security)
If you select “Open” as authentication method no client configuration is
needed but be aware of that the WLAN will now be open without any kind
of security. For example, it is now possible for anyone with a computer and
a wireless interface card to connect to the Ericsson W3x at any time and
having access to both your home network and Internet connection.
3.6.8.2
WEP and WEP Encryption Key (Low security)
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is considered to be a low security option.
The data is encrypted into blocks of either 64 bits length or 128 bits length.
WEP encrypted data can only be sent and received by users with access to
a private encryption key. This means that each client on your wireless
network has to be manually configured with exactly the same key as the
one entered in the Ericsson W3x in order to allow encrypted data
transmissions.
•
WEP-64 bit data encryption requires a key including 10 characters.
Only hexadecimal numbers 0-9 and letters a-f (uppercase or
lowercase) are allowed.
•
WEP-128 bit data encryption requires a key including 26 characters.
Only hexadecimal numbers 0-9 and letters a-f (uppercase or
lowercase) are allowed.
Enter an encryption key in the “Passphrase / Key” field and click Apply to
save the settings.
3.6.8.3
WPA/WPA2 and Passphrase (High security)
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and its successor WPA2 are the most
reliable security options. WPA encryption uses the TKIP (Temporal Key
44
1/1551-CRH 102 168 Uen Rev A 2008-12-16
Configuration and Management
Integrity Protocol) while WPA2 encryption follows AES (Advanced
Encryption Standard). AES offers a higher level of security and is approved
for sensitive corporate and government data transmission. WPA/WPA2
Mixed enables connection of both WPA and WPA2 clients.
WPA and WPA2 authentication and encryption require a passphrase. A
passphrase is a sequence of words or other text and is similar to a
password in usage, but is generally longer for added security.
Each client on your wireless network has to be configured with exactly the
same passphrase as the one entered in the Ericsson W3x in order to allow
encrypted data transmission.
A WPA or WPA2 passphrase is case sensitive (distinguish between
uppercase and lowercase letters) and consists of between 8 and 63
characters. It is recommended that the passphrase contains at least 20
characters.
Enter a passphrase in the “Passphrase / Key” field and click Apply to save
the settings.
Note:
3.6.9
Avoid using special characters (such as :, “ and ¤) when entering a
passphrase.
Connected Devices
The “CONNECTED DEVICES” list on the Wireless LAN page includes the
MAC (Media Access Control) addresses of all wireless clients currently
connected to the Ericsson W3x.
3.6.10
Whitelist
A common method of restricting WLAN access is to specify the MAC
address(es) in a “whitelist” for those computers to be granted access to the
WLAN. This kind of whitelist is also known as “MAC Association” or “MAC
Access list”.
Up to 20 MAC addresses for wireless clients can be added to the whitelist.
Once the whitelist has been enabled, only clients with an associated MAC
address are allowed to connect to the WLAN.
Note:
This feature does not require any configuration of clients, but it is
recommended that some kind of encryption (WEP, WPA/WPA2) is
used in combination with the whitelist.

NAT
The Ericsson W3x includes a NAT (Network Address Translation) service.
With this service several computers on a LAN/WLAN can share the same
Internet connection using a single public IP address.
Devices on the LAN/WLAN use dedicated private IP addresses, which
cannot be used on the Internet. When a computer on the LAN/WLAN want
to send a data package to the Internet, its IP address is automatically
translated by NAT to an external (public) IP address allowed on the
Internet. When a reply receives to this external IP address, it is translated
back to the origin private IP address to be able to found its way back to the
sending computer on the LAN/WLAN.
In this way, details about the local devices remain private and it is not
possible to access a local computer on the LAN/WLAN directly from the
Internet.
The NAT page includes the following settings:

3.7.1
UPnP IGD
The Ericsson W3x supports the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) Internet
Gateway Device (IGD) standard. UPnP IGD is used to provide automatic
port forwarding allowing communication between certain Internet
applications and the local network. When UPnP IGD is enabled, programs
®
like MSN Messenger and most network enabled games are allowed to
pass the NAT service.
UPnP IGD is enabled by default, but if you want to disable the feature, clear
the “Enable UPnP IGD” check box and click Apply to save the settings.
3.7.2
Application Level Gateways
From a security perspective, certain Internet applications, for example FTP
applications that open additional ports upon transfer, are especially
problematic to handle. An Application Level Gateway (ALG) provides a
translation and transportation service for such a specific application.
Incoming data packets are checked against existing NAT and packet
filtering rules, IP addresses are evaluated and a detailed packet analysis is
performed. If necessary, the contents of a packet are modified and if a
secondary port is required, the ALG will open one. The Ericsson W3x
includes ALG support for the following applications:

3.7.3
Port Forwarding
Port forwarding is used to allow an external user to access a service
residing on a server connected to the LAN (to cross the NAT border). It
enables access to servers on the LAN from the Internet (e.g. Web server)
and also enables applications to work from the LAN (e.g. games, voice and
chat) to the Internet.
Note:
Port forwarding requires that the Ericsson W3x has a public IP
address for Port Forwarding requests from the Internet to be
handled correctly.
This IP address is displayed on the Overview page as the
“Internet: IP address”. A private IP address usually begins with 10,
172, or 192. In this case, no incoming access from the Internet is
allowed. For more information on public and private IP addresses,
contact your service provider.
When a computer on the Internet sends data to the public IP address of the
Ericsson W3x, it needs to know what to do with the data. A port forwarding
rule tells the Ericsson W3x which computer on the local area network to
send the data to.
The “PORT FORWARDING” section on the NAT page includes the
following information about port forwarding rules:
Table 18 - Port Forwarding description
3.7.3.1
Text
Description
NAT Port
The NAT port number that the data traffic is allowed
to be transported on.
Server IP
The IP address of the destination server on the LAN.
Server Port

identifies the type of service that is directed, for
example web service on port 8080.
Protocol
The protocol to be used for the service; TCP or
UDP.

Select a “Protocol” from the drop-down list and type the appropriate values
in “NAT Port”, “Server IP”, and “Server Port” fields and click Apply to save
the setting.
Below are some examples of common applications and corresponding
server port they use for network access. The “NAT Port” has often the
same value as the “Server Port” value. Exceptions are made when the
same applications are used on many clients on the LAN/WLAN, where
each “Server IP” value needs to be unique and differ from the “NAT Port”
value.

for each port or port range.
Port Forwarding Example
In the following example, port forwarding is used to allow incoming access
(from the external network (Internet)) to an internal web server (on the
LAN/WLAN). The TCP protocol is used for data traffic. The NAT port 80 on
the Ericsson W3x is open and the destination computer on the LAN with
static server IP address 192.168.1.101 has appointed the server port 8080
to be used.

File and Printer Sharing
The Ericsson W3x supports local network storage and printer sharing
through the USB port. If an external USB hub is connected, the Ericsson
W3x supports connection of up to two storage devices and one printer at
the same time.
The Sharing page displays information about connected USB device(s):
Figure 41 - Sharing page
3.8.1
How it Works
The Ericsson W3x uses Samba (www.samba.org) as the base to
implement file and printer sharing through SMB/CIFS. SMB and CIFS are
the protocols used by Microsoft for sharing and the service is called “smb”
on the Ericsson W3x.
•
52
Linux Kernel auto detection of USB devices is used as part of the
automatic configuration of the storage and printer sharing. When a new
USB device (storage or printer) is detected, the Ericsson W3x
automatically creates configuration files for Samba containing the new
device. It then makes the smb service use the new configuration,
thereby sharing the USB device via the SMB/CIFS protocol. This
1/1551-CRH 102 168 Uen Rev A 2008-12-16
Configuration and Management
process is totally automatic and there are no configuration parameters
that can be set, other than renaming the shared resources.
The Ericsson W3x uses a relatively low powered processor and is not
designed to be a multi tasking platform. This means that you may
experience problems during high load situations such as simultaneously
downloading a large file through the mobile network and printing a large
document or copying a large file to/from a shared storage device mounted
on the Ericsson W3x. Don’t expect to have full performance on all
simultaneous tasks.
3.8.1.1
Safe Removal of a USB Device
Before removing a USB device from the Ericsson W3x wait until the activity
LED (if any) on the device stops blinking or wait some 30 seconds to be
sure there is not any ongoing/remaining write operations to be made.
3.8.2
Host Name and Workgroup
All devices on the LAN/WLAN that want to access a USB shared storage
device or printer must belong to the same workgroup as the Ericsson W3x.
The following information can be changed on the Sharing page:
Table 20 - Sharing information

For information about setting up a connection from a PC to a shared
device, follow the instruction in section 6.3.3 – Set Up a Connection to a
Storage Device or section 6.3.4 – Access a Shared Printer.
3.8.3
File Sharing
When a USB storage device is connected to the Ericsson W3x the included
files are shared with all devices on the local network (LAN/WLAN) and all
local users have full access to the shared files.
Note:
Only the first partition of the storage device will be automatically
mounted and shared through the smb service.
1/1551-CRH 102 168 Uen Rev A 2008-12-16
53
Configuration and Management
The file system on a shared partition needs to be of a supported type;
otherwise the automatic mounting of the device will not work. Currently the
supported types are:
•
FAT; Microsoft legacy file system from MS-DOS with 8.3 character
filename
•
FAT32; Microsoft Windows 95 file system based on FAT but with long
file name
•
ext2; Second extended file system, the standard Linux file system.
•

data packets over networks.
IP address
The address of a host on the Internet,
consisting of four numbers, each from 0 to
255, separated by periods, for example
192.168.1.1. An IP address consists of a
network ID that identifies the particular
network the host belongs to, and a host ID
uniquely identifying the host itself on that
network. A network mask is used to define
the network ID and the host ID. See also
Private IP Address and Public IP Address.
