Introduction
This document covers configuring the TP-Link Portable 3G Wireless N Router Model TL-MR3020 to
use with a Diamante WiFi communication with Case CATalyst and/or CaseViewNetWiFi
communications with Case CATalyst.
The Diamante WiFi wireless communication is a factory installed optional accessory for your Diamante
version 1.12 or higher. Using the Diamante WiFi, installed at the time of purchase or retrofitted, and a
wireless access point, the Diamante can communicate with Case CATalyst V8.05 or higher for realtime
writing through a wireless connection. Using Case CATalyst V12.5 or higher, dictionaries can be
exported to the Diamante via a wireless connection. Using the Diamante V1.13 or higher and Case
CATalyst V13 or higher, dictionary definitions can be exchanged between the Diamante and Case
CATalyst via a WiFi realtime connection. The Diamante TrueStroke data is also sent via a WiFi
connection and works in conjunction with Case CATalyst’s TrueStroke Drag/Drop translation option to
eliminate the number of mistranslates and untranslates.
Sending realtime data via a WiFi connection from Case CATalyst to CaseViewNet requires a
CaseViewNet license on the Case CATalyst system. For more information, please go to
www.caseviewnet.com.
The wireless access point (AP) connection can be secured using encryption with a security password
protection. During setup, you can create a security password that allows access to the wireless AP. The
encrypted data can only be transmitted between the Diamante and computers and/or Case CATalyst
and the CaseViewNet receive systems using the designated security password.
The range for the wireless connection is approximately 300 feet, depending on wall construction. If you
move the Diamante out of range, the wireless connection remains active. Steno strokes written out of
range are fed to Case CATalyst when you move the Diamante back into range.
Stenograph strongly suggests you setup and test all realtime hardware including wireless
communication prior to using it in a realtime situation.

WiFi Router Configuration
Chapter 2, WiFi Router Configuration, details the steps to configure the TP-LINK TL-MR3020 router.
This includes establishing a connection between your computer and the router, identifying a network
name, setting a WiFi security password if desired and making an initial connection to your router. It is
important to follow the steps outlined in these instructions to configure the WiFi (wireless) connection
between your computer and the TP-LINK TL-MR3020 router.
To change the network name, security mode or security password after successfully completing router
configuration, it is necessary to reset the router, see Router Reset on page 38.
Internet access is accessible by making a connection between your 3G Internet modem and the 3G USB
port on the TP-LINK TL-MR3020 router. You can use a USB Wireless Broadband Data Modem in the
router or connect the router to your Internet modem via Ethernet cable. An Ethernet cable is included
with your router. See the router user guide or the TP-LINK website, www.tp-link.com, for additional
information.
The TP-LINK TL-MR3020 Router has a switch for three different modes: 3G Router Mode, WISP Client
Router Mode and AP Mode. This document discusses setup using the switch set to 3G for 3G Router
Mode. The following is a brief description of the three modes:
3G Router Mode - other wireless devices can connect to the router and if a 3G modem is used, other
devices can join the same 3G network.
WISP mode - stands for wireless internet service provider and in most cases a WISP may not be
available in your area.
AP mode - acts as a wireless router that can work in four different modes.
For additional information about the other available modes, please contact TP-LINK for assistance.
If you think you will need an Ethernet internet connection at some point, during the router setup or after
you have the router set up, you can set the Network Internet Access to 3G/4G Preferred. The router
setup instructions reference the Network Setup instructions but the setting is not necessary unless you
plan on using a Ethernet internet connection.

Establish CaseViewNet Connection
Chapter 4, Establish CaseViewNet Connection, provides instructions on how to start WiFi wireless
realtime communication between Case CATalyst V8.20 or higher and the CaseViewNet client
computer. In order to establish WiFi CaseViewNet communication, you need to first configured the
TP-LINK Portable 3G/3.75G Wireless N Router TL-MR3020 router. See WiFi Wireless Router
Configuration on page 7 for more information on router configuration, establishing a network name
and setting a password.
Client Without Wireless Capability
In a situation where a client does not have built in WiFi capability, you can:
•
connect an Ethernet cable between the available Ethernet port on the TP-LINK TL-MR3020
router and the client’s computer network port or NIC card and continue with the setup instruction.
•
connect a serial cable between the Case CATalyst computer and the CaseViewNet client
computer. Certain CaseViewNet features are not available. See the CaseViewNet Help for
additional information about serial connection, including setup.
Computer Settings for Anti-Virus and Firewall Programs
Most anti-virus software installed on computers contain a firewall. A firewall is a system that secures
the wireless network, shielding it from access by unauthorized users. It can also restrict data from
flowing in and out of the network. Software firewalls can restrict the data flow from the Case
CATalyst network computer and the CaseViewNet client computers. Often, changing a setting in the
software firewall can eliminate the restriction.
Stenograph has tested several anti-virus software packages and provides recommended settings for
the Case CATalyst and CaseViewNet computers to help ensure unrestricted data flow. The latest
CaseViewNet anti-virus information can be found on the Stenograph web-site,
www.stenograph.com. Click Support/Help Desk. In the Keyword field type, caseviewnet virus
protection. To apply any of the recommended actions, consult your anti-virus software
documentation or vendor.
