Chapter 1: Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the MM2211 Wireless Broadband Gateway. The MM2211 is a
purpose-built home gateway designed to deliver the best possible connectivity from subscriber homes to
Mesh Networks. Mesh Networks provide coverage across wide areas using a mesh distribution of access
points based on standard Wi-Fi protocols.
The installation uses outdoor high power Mesh routers to achieve coverage for outdoor wireless
devices. Typically, the indoor coverage is inadequate to maintain an acceptable quality level for
users within the home. The MM2211 is a Customer Premise Equipment that allows the extension
of the Metro Wi-Fi signals to achieve a robust coverage within home. The MM2211 communicates
with the Mesh Networks routers to allow home devices (such as PC or laptops) to access the
Internet.
This chapter describes the features of the MM2211 Gateway.

BeamFlex™
BeamFlex™
BeamFlex™ is Ruckus Wireless, Inc.’s patent-pending antenna technology that allows wireless signals to
navigate around interference, extend wireless signal range, and increase speeds and capacity for 802.11b/g
wireless networks. The BeamFlex™ antenna system consists of an array of six high-gain antenna elements,
that allow the MM2211 to find quality signal paths in a changing environment, and sustain the baseline
performance required in a metro wi-fi environment.
MetroFlex enhances the existing BeamFlex technology to use a dual polarized (horizontal and vertical)
antenna array.
Key Features
BeamFlex™ Smart MIMO Antenna Maximizes Wireless Range and
Performance
• Multi-In, Multi-Out (MIMO) technology supports real time learning of radio frequency, station, network
and application conditions.
• On-the-fly adaptation to each receiving device in response to environmental changes such as interference
to maximize signal quality, data rate and minimize packet errors and retransmissions.
• Internal driver software controls an antenna array with 6 high-gain, directional antenna elements and 63
unique antenna combinations.
• Expert system 802.11 driver controls data rate and retransmission policies on a per-packet basis.
Simple Configuration and Installation
• Simple Web-based user interface for easy configuration and customization of features such as SSID, WEP
or WPA key, statistics monitoring and software upgrade.
Standards-based Solution Protects User Investment, Minimizes
Replacement Cost
• Compliant with 802.11b and 802.11g: supports 802.11g wireless networking at up to 54 Mbps; and can
interoperate in 802.11g-only or mixed networks.
• Supports Wi-Fi Protected Access-Pre-Shared Key (WPA-PSK) data encryption. WPA provides strong
data encryption and authentication based on a pre-shared key.
• Supports 64-bit and 128-bit WEP encryption security. WEP keys can be generated manually or by
passphrase.
• Attaches to home PC by Ethernet to optimize the reception of wireless signals from the outdoor Mesh
Networks nodes.The MM2211-DZ allows home PCs to associate to it wirelessly.
• Forward compatible with the emerging 802.11n WLAN standard.

Dual Zone Virtual AP
Figure 2—Dual Zone Operation
This single radio solution minimizes the cost to the consumer.There are distinct SSIDs between the LAN and
WAN wireless. Separate security configurations (WPA, WEP, or 802.1X) provide for truly secure access.
One device thus provides both indoor and outdoor wireless coverage.
NOTE – When the WAN wireless link goes down the LAN wireless does not stay connected. The sequence of events
is as follows:
•
When the WAN wireless goes down, the MM2211 reverts to pure station mode. The LAN wireless goes down.
•
The MM2211 then goes into scan move to search for an alternate access point with the same SSID.
•
If such an access point is found, The MM2211 will connect to that SSID.
•
The MM2211 will then restart the LAN wireless.
•
All wireless devices that are part of the LAN will automatically reassociate with the LAN wireless.

Placement Guidelines
Placement Guidelines
You or your service provider or installer can determine the best placement for the MM2211 Gateway by
using the following guidelines.
Establishing a Good General Location
Your MM2211 Gateway should be placed:
• On a shelf or other elevated location away from any physical obstructions.
• Away from other sources of electromagnetic interference (for example, microwave ovens, and cordless
phones).
• Away from large metal surfaces, pictures or mirrors.
• Away from large furniture or other physical obstructions.
Using the Air Quality Indicator to fine-tune the placement
NOTE – The Air Quality Indicator represents the wireless condition of the WAN link.
Wireless environments are sensitive to the physical arrangement of both electronic devices and furniture in
a room. You or your installer can observe the Air Quality Indicator LED to determine the best location. The
Air Quality indicator LED is described in Table 2— “LED Indicators and Meanings” on page 13.
Your service provider or installer can guide you through a self-help troubleshooting session if data
transmission quality deteriorates after an installation. Or, you may be able to determine a solution to the
problem on your own.
If “Bad” or “Maybe Acceptable,” air quality is indicated, you can adjust the location of the MM2211
Gateway until a steady green LED indicates “good” air quality.
Connecting to the MM2211 Gateway

Air Quality Indicator
The Air Quality Indicator examines the environment that surrounds a Ruckus Wireless, Inc. MM2211
Gateway, and determines the amount of interference in the environment. The Radio Frequency (RF) side of
a wireless device is a combination of a receiver and a transmitter. Both receiver and transmitter provide
feedback as they operate. The Air Quality indicator bases its evaluation on the Received Signal Strength
Indication (RSSI) that is returned as part of the 802.11 transmission acknowledgement. As the adapter
receives an 802.11 packet, it sends the RSSI value to the remote AP.
Thumb Up: Good air quality. The environment supports a quality data transmission.
Thumb sideways: Marginal data transmission strength. The current environment may
support data transmission, but it is possible that the data transmission quality may be
marginal.
NOTE – Thumb down: Low data transmission strength. The current environment does not
support acceptable data transmission.

Figure 8—System Configuration—Bridge Mode
The System->Configuration window allows you to configure system mode—either Route or Bridge. In
addition, this window allows you to configure IP address assignment and to change the username and
password to access the device.
Route mode provides the capability to perform NAT (network address translation) of the traffic from the
Internet (WAN Interface) to the local interface. Route mode allows home users to hide the MM2211 IP
address from the Internet. Using Route mode, multiple devices can be connected behind the Metro Wireless
Access Gateway.
Bridge mode allows the Wireless Access Gateway to act in Layer 2 (or bridge) mode. When the bridge mode
is selected, the home PC's IP address will not be changed as it communicates with the Metro Mesh node. The
Wireless Access Gateway will use the MAC address of the home PC as it sends the packet to the Metro Mesh
Node. This mode is sometimes referring to as cloning mode. Using the Bridge mode, only a single device
can be connected behind the Metro Wireless Access Gateway.
3. Choose the system mode, either Route or Bridge.

Field
Description
Authentication
WEP allows three authentication options: open system, shared key, or automatic
selection of authentication method.
Shared key authentication adds another layer of security by requiring that the MM2211
Gateway supply a shared key first to authenticate to the Mesh Networks Outdoor
Router, and then supply the same shared key for encrypting and decrypting data.
Choosing Auto, automatically selects the authentication mode depending on the
method used by the remote AP.
Key Entry Method
You can choose either Hexadecimal or ASCII as the entry method
PassPhrase
The MM2211 Gateway supports automatic generation of four keys from a passphrase.
Make sure that the passphrase is the same as the passphrase used on the remote AP.

•
802.11g&b: stations running at either 802.11g (2.4GHz, 54Mbps)
or 802.11b (2.4GHz 11Mbps) can associate to the MM2211
Gateway. This is the default setting.
2.4GHz 54Mbps (802.11g only)
2.4 GHz Auto 108Mbps (802.11g Turbo)
2.4 GHz 108 Mbps Only (802.11g Turbo)

Full
Half (-3 dB)
Quarter (-6 dB)
Eighth (-9 dB)
Minimum
The default is Full.
Fragment Length
The fragment length. The range is between 256 and 2346 bytes. The
default is 2346.
The MM2211 Gateway uses fragmentation to divide 802.11 frames into
smaller fragments which are sent separately to the destination. Only
unicast frames can be fragmented. The fragment length can be between
256-2346 bytes. If the data that the MM2211 Gateway is transmitting is
larger than the threshold, it will trigger the fragmentation function. If the
packet size is equal to or less than the threshold, the gateway will not use
fragmentation. In a good wireless environment, the larger the fragment,
the more efficient the network operates. In a noisy environment, the
fragment length should be adjusted to a smaller size to minimize
retransmission and increase the reliability of the transmission.
RTS/CTS Threshold
The RTS-CTS threshold range. The range is between 256 and 2346. The
default is 2346.
The RTS-CTS threshold is a value that determines at what frame length
the request-to-send/clear-to-send (RTS-CTS) function is triggered. By
default, this threshold is set at its highest value. A lower threshold value
means that the RTS-CTS function is triggered for smaller frame lengths.
A lower threshold may be necessary in environments with excessive
signal noise or hidden nodes; but this may result in some performance
degradation.
