1. Introduction
ERB9250 is a 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n 300Mbps Repeater & Client Bridge (Range
Booster / Extender). Range Extender solves the signal attenuation (limited coverage)
problem by literally repeating / extending AP radio signal to dead-spots. While
repeater clones AP and serves as a subsidiary entity to its clients, client bride offers
an extension of wired network to the AP.
At 300 Mbps wireless transmission rate, Access Point built into the Router uses
advanced MIMO (Multi-Input, Multi-Output) technology to transmit multiple steams of
data in a single wireless channel giving you seamless access to multimedia content.
Robust RF signal travels farther, eliminates dead spots and extends network range.
For data protection and privacy, ERB9250 encodes all wireless transmissions with
WEP, WPA, and WPA2 encryption.

Please note that there may be various interferences and obstacles in the
environment that can impact wireless network performance. Most of the wireless
driver utility provides signal strength visualization. You can make use of it to measure
the signal strength of your AP.
You may need to experiment a few times to find out the best location for the
range extender. Generally, placing extender at where the AP signal strength greater
than 30% considered suitable.
You can place ERB9250 on a desk or other flat surface, or you can mount it on
a wall. For optimal performance, place your extender within the coverage of your
existing AP from which the signal you would like to extend. Like any other wireless
device, it must be away from any potential source of interference, such as a metal
wall or microwave oven. This location must be close to a power connection. If the
antennas are not screwed properly, performance loss can occur.

8.3. Advanced
Fragment Threshold: This specifies the maximum size of a packet during the
fragmentation of data to be transmitted. If you set this
value too low, it will result in bad performance.
RTS Threshold: When the packet size is smaller than the RTS threshold, the
wireless router will not use the RTS/CTS mechanism to send
this packet.
Beacon Interval: This is the interval of time that this wireless router broadcasts
a beacon. A Beacon is used to synchronize the wireless
network.
DTIM Period: Enter a value between 1 and 255 for the Delivery Traffic Indication
Message (DTIM). A DTIM is a countdown informing clients of the
next window for listening to broadcast and multicast messages.
Data Rate: The “Data Rate” is the rate that this access point uses to transmit
data packets. The access point will use the highest possible
selected transmission rate to transmit the data packets.
27
N Data Rate: The “Data Rate” is the rate that this access point uses to transmit
data packets for N compliant wireless nodes. Highest to lowest
data rate can be fixed.
Channel Bandwidth: This is the range of frequencies that will be used.
Preamble Type: The “Long Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN
compatibility while the “Short Preamble” can provide better
wireless LAN performance.
CTS Protection: It is recommended to enable the protection mechanism. This
mechanism can decrease the rate of data collision between
802.11b and 802.11g wireless stations. When the protection
mode is enabled, the throughput of the AP will be a little lower
due to a lot of frame-network that is transmitted.
TX Power: This can be set to a bare minimum or maximum power.
8.4. Security
This Access Point provides complete wireless LAN security functions, included
are WEP, IEEE 802.1x, IEEE 802.1x with WEP, WPA with pre-shared key and WPA
with RADIUS. With these security functions, you can prevent your wireless LAN from
illegal access. Please make sure your wireless stations use the same security
function, and are setup with the same security key.
28
ESSID Selection: This broadband router support multiple ESSID, you could
select and set up the wanted ESSID.
Broadcast ESSID: If you enabled “Broadcast ESSID”, every wireless station
located within the coverage of this AP can discover this AP easily. If you are
building a public wireless network, enabling this feature is recommended.
Disabling “Broadcast ESSID” can provide better security.
WMM: Wi-Fi MultiMedia if enabled supports QoS for experiencing better audio,
video and voice in applications.
Encryption: When you choose to disable encryption, it is very insecure to
operate ERB9250.
8.4.1.WEP Encryption
When you select 64-bit or 128-bit WEP key, you have to enter WEP keys to
encrypt data. You can generate the key by yourself and enter it. You can enter
four WEP keys and select one of them as a default key. Then AP can receive
any packet encrypted by one of the four keys.
Authentication Type: There are two authentication types: "Open System" and
"Shared Key". Both AP and wireless client must be configured with the same
authentication type.
29
Key Length: You can select the WEP key length for encryption, 64-bit or 128-bit.
The larger the key will be the higher level of security is used, but the throughput
will be lower.
Key Type: You may select ASCII Characters (alphanumeric format) or
Hexadecimal Digits (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) to be the WEP Key.
Default Key: It’s the key used to encrypt data.
Key1 - Key4: The WEP keys are used to encrypt data transmitted in the
wireless network. Use the following rules to setup a WEP key on the device.
64-bit WEP: input 10-digits Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or 5-
digit ASCII character as the encryption keys.
128-bit WEP: input 26-digit Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or 13-
digit ASCII characters as the encryption keys.
Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations.
8.4.2.WPA Pre-Shared Key Encryption
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an advanced security standard. You can use a
pre-shared key to authenticate wireless stations and encrypt data during
communication. It uses TKIP or CCMP (AES) to change the encryption key
30
frequently. So the encryption key is not easy to be cracked by hackers. This is
the best security available.

10. Firewall (CR Mode)
10.1. Enable
The Broadband router provides extensive firewall protection by restricting connection
parameters, thus limiting the risk of hacker attacks, and defending against a wide
array of common Internet attacks. However, for applications that require unrestricted
access to the Internet, you can configure a specific client/server as a Demilitarized
Zone (DMZ).
34
10.2. DMZ (Demilitarized Zone)
If you have a client PC that cannot run an Internet application (e.g. Games) properly
from behind the NAT firewall, then you can open up the firewall restrictions to
unrestricted two-way Internet access by defining a DMZ Host. The DMZ function
allows you to re-direct all packets going to your WAN port IP address to a particular
IP address in your LAN. The difference between the virtual server and the DMZ
function is that the virtual server re-directs a particular service/Internet application
(e.g. FTP, websites) to a particular LAN client/server, whereas DMZ re-directs all
packets (regardless of services) from your WAN IP address to a particular server or
client.
Enable DMZ: Enable/disable DMZ
LAN IP Address: Fill-in the IP address of a particular host in your LAN Network or
select a PC from the list on the right that will receive all the packets originally from
the WAN port/Public IP address.
Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations.
35
10.3. DoS (Denial of Service)
The Broadband router's firewall can block common hacker attacks, including Denial
of Service, Ping of Death, Port Scan and Sync Flood. If Internet attacks occur the
router can log the events.
Ping of Death: Protections from Ping of Death attack.
Discard Ping From WAN: The router’s WAN port will not respond to any Ping
requests
Port Scan: Protects the router from Port Scans.
Sync Flood: Protects the router from Sync Flood attack.
10.4. MAC Filter
If you want to restrict users from accessing certain Internet applications / services
(e.g. Internet websites, email, FTP etc.), and then this is the place to set that
configuration. MAC Filter allows users to define the traffic type permitted in your LAN.
You can control which PC client can have access to these services.
36
Enable MAC Filtering: Check to enable or disable MAC Filtering.
Deny: If you select “Deny” then all clients will be allowed to access Internet except

11.3. Port Forwarding
Use the Port Forwarding (Virtual Server) function when you want different
servers/clients in your LAN to handle different service/Internet application type (e.g.
Email, FTP, Web server etc.) from the Internet. Computers use numbers called port
numbers to recognize a particular service/Internet application type. The Virtual
Server allows you to re-direct a particular service port number (from the
Internet/WAN Port) to a particular LAN private IP address (See Glossary for an
explanation on Port number).
Enable Port Forwarding: Enable or disable Port Forwarding.
Description: The description of this setting.
Local IP / Local Port: This is the LAN Client/Host IP address and Port number that
the Public Port number packet will be sent to.
Protocol: Select the port number protocol type (TCP, UDP or both). If you are
unsure, then leave it to the default “both” setting. Public Port enters the service
42
(service/Internet application) port number from the Internet that will be re-directed to
the above Private IP address host in your LAN Network.
Public Port: Port number will be changed to Local Port when the packet enters your
LAN Network.

11.7. QoS
QoS can let you classify Internet application traffic by source/destination IP
address and port number. You can assign priority for each type of application
and reserve bandwidth for it. The packets of applications with higher priority will
always go first. Lower priority applications will get bandwidth after higher priority
applications get enough bandwidth. This can let you have a better experience in
using critical real time services like Internet phone, video conference …etc. All
the applications not specified by you are classified as rule “Others”.
Priority Queue
This can put the packets of specific protocols in High/Low Queue. The
packets in High Queue will process first.
46
Unlimited Priority Queue: The LAN IP address will not be bounded in the QoS
limitation.
High/Low Priority Queue: This can put the packets in the protocol and port
range to High/Low QoS Queue.
