Option
Description
Enable Wi-Fi
A checkbox that enables or disables the wireless LAN interface. When selected, the Web UI
displays Hide Access point, SSID, and County settings. The default is Enable Wi-Fi.
Enable SSID
Broadcast
Deselect Enable SSID Broadcast to protect the access point from detection by wireless
active scans.
To check AP status in Windows XP, open Network Connections from the Start Menu and
select View Available Network Connections. If the access point is hidden, it will not be
listed there. To connect a client to a hidden access point, the station must add the access
point manually to its wireless configuration.
Clients
Isolation
1. Prevents clients PC from seeing one another in My Network Places or Network
Neighborhood.
2. Prevents one wireless client communicating with another wireless client.
SSID
Sets the wireless network name. SSID stands for Service Set Identifier. All stations must be
configured with the correct SSID to access the WLAN. If the SSID does not match, that user
will not be granted access.
The naming conventions are: Minimum number of characters: 1, maximum number of
characters: 32.
BSSID
The BSSID is a 48bit identity used to identify a particular BSS (Basic Service Set) within
an area. In Infrastructure BSS networks, the BSSID is the MAC (Medium Access Control)
address of the AP (Access Point) and in Independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is
generated randomly.
Country
A drop-down menu that permits worldwide and specific national settings. Each county
listed in the menu enforces specific regulations limiting channel range: US= worldwide,
Japan=1-14, Jordan= 10-13, Israel= 1-13
Max Clients
The maximum number of clients that can access the router.
Wireless Guest / Virtual
Access Points
This router supports multiple SSIDs called Guest SSIDs or Virtual Access Points. To enable
one or more Guest SSIDs select the radio buttons under the Enable heading. To hide a
Guest SSID, select its radio button under the Hidden heading.
Do the same for Isolate Client and Disable WMM Advertise functions. For a description of
these two functions, see the entries for “Client Isolation” and “Disable WMM Advertise” in
this table. Similarly, for Max Clients and BSSID headings, consult the matching entries in
this table. NOTE: Remote wireless hosts are unable to scan Guest SSIDs.

BSSID
The BSSID is a 48-bit identity used to identify a particular BSS (Basic
Service Set) within an area. In Infrastructure BSS networks, the BSSID is
the MAC (Media Access Control) address of the AP (Access Point); and in
Independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly.
Associated
Lists all the stations that are associated with the Access Point, along
with the amount of time since packets were transferred to and from each
station. If a station is idle for too long, it is removed from this list.
Authorized
Lists those devices with authorized access.
