Introduction
1: Introduction
Compex WP18 Wireless 54Mbps A+G Dualband Access Point with built-in PoE let
you have the best of both worlds with its versatile Dualband feature. Compex
WP18 contains two separate wireless radio transceivers that support all three
popular wireless network such as the IEEE 802.11b/g band which operates on
2.4GHz and the IEEE 802.11a band which operates at 5GHz. As the two
transceivers operate in different bands, they can work simultaneously; providing
a larger coverage zone with high-speed connectivity for your wireless network.
The autoscan feature automatically sense the clearer network to connect to,
ensuring better and faster connectivity at all times. Besides functioning as a
versatile access point for hotspot or any public access deployment, WP18 can
also function as an Access Point Client in any wireless network environment. The
in-built Atheros-AG technology provides higher throughput at 802.11a, 5GHz vs
802.11g’s congested 2.4GHz band and the ability to operate in 24 nonoverlapping channels as compared to the 3 non-overlapping channels on the
802.11g standard.
Compex WP18 also includes an integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) that
allows WP18 to be used in areas where power outlets are not readily available.
To protect your security and privacy, Compex WP18 is armed with many
enhanced wireless security features such as Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA),
WPA2, IEEE 802.1x Authentication and 64-bit/128-bit WEP (Wired Equivalent
Privacy) and Pseudo VLAN to ensure privacy for the heterogeneous mix of users
within the same wireless LAN, while maintaining full access to the
establishment’s resources. Compex WP18 also incorporates a DHCP server that
allows easy connection to any network.

2: Let’s Get Going-Hardware Setup
Compex WP18 can be powered using either the power adapter or the
Compex PoE or IEEE802.3af PoE. The installation process for the three options is
described below.
Option One: Using power adapter to supply power to the
unit
Connect this dual-band
“AG” to the LEFT on
Compex WP18.
Before attaching a pair of external
antennas to Compex WP18 correctly,
please carefully take note of the “A”
marking on one of these two
antennas as the Dual-band “AG”
Antenna.
Connect this single-band
“G” to the RIGHT on
Compex WP18.
“A” marking
No “A” marking means that the other
antenna is Single-band “G” Antenna.
!
Important to Note: To ensure that Compex WP18 is
working well, these two antennas MUST NOT be
swapped.

Let’s Get Going - Hardware Setup
Insert one end of the RJ45 Ethernet cable to any of the LAN ports (1,2 or 3) on
your Compex WP18, and the other end of the cable to your PC’s Ethernet
network adapter.
PC
Attach the power adapter to the main electrical supply, and connect the
power plug into the socket of the Compex WP18.

Power ON your PC. Notice that the Power and Port 1 or 2 (depending on
which port you have connected the RJ45 Ethernet cable to) LEDs have lighted
up. This indicates that the connection has been established successfully
between your Compex WP18 and your PC.

Chapter 2
Let’s Get Going - Hardware Setup
Option Two: Using Compex PoE to supply power to the unit
Compex Power-Over-Ethernet (PoE) is fully compatible with your Compex
WP18. This accessory supplies operational power to the wireless access point via
the Ethernet cable connection.
Users who have already purchased the Compex PoE and who wish to use it to
supply power to the Compex WP18 may follow the installation procedures as
shown below:
Follow the same procedure as described in the Option One. And also refer to
Appendix C (in user’s manual) for configuring the jumper JP01 before
proceeding to Step 2.
Use an RJ45 Ethernet cable to connect one end of the cable to the Ethernet
socket of the Injector and the other end to the Port 4 (PoE Port) of Compex
WP18.
For Compex PoE, the recommended length of the RJ45 Category 5 cable is
up to 50 metres.

Chapter 2
Let’s Get Going - Hardware Setup
Next, connect the RJ45 Ethernet cable attached to the Compex PoE Injector
to your PC’s Ethernet network adapter.
Once you have finished configuring your WP18, you can connect the PoE
Injector’s RJ45 Ethernet cable to your network device, such as to a switch or
hub.
PC
Connect the power adapter supplied in the Compex PoE kit to the main
electrical supply and the power plug into the socket of the injector.
Note:
The voltage and current supplied to the Compex WP18 power adapter and
the Compex PoE kit power adapter are different. Do not interchange the
power adapters.

Chapter 2
Let’s Get Going - Hardware Setup
Option Three: Using IEEE 802.3af PoE Injector to supply
power to the unit
Compex WP18 can be powered using the IEEE802.3af PoE Injector. This
accessory supplies operational power to the wireless AP via the Ethernet cable
connection. The installation process is described below.
Follow the same procedure as described in the Option One. And also refer to
Appendix C ( in user’s manual) for configuring the jumper JP01 before
proceeding to Step 2.
Use an RJ45 Ethernet cable to connect one end of the cable to the Ethernet
socket of the Injector and the other end to the Port 4 (PoE Port) of Compex
WP18.
Maximum length of the RJ45 Category 5 cable is 100 metres.
