AT-WR2304N
Small Business Wireless Router
AT-WR2304N
IEEE 802.11b/g/n small business wireless router
with four Fast Ethernet switch hub ports
Overview
The AT-WR2304N is a broadband router
delivering up to 6 x faster speeds and 3 x
extended coverage than IEEE 802.11g devices.
It supports network with superior throughput,
performance and unparalleled wireless range.
The Fast Ethernet switch inter-connects your
wired-devices; router function ties wireless and
wired networks and lets your network share a
high-speed cable or DSL Internet connection.
The AT-WR2304N is ideal for home networking
and small offices. It is a wireless communications
router for devices on your network; you not
only can share your Internet connections, but
also your printer and files among the networked
PCs. It provides continuous, high-speed access
between your wireless and Ethernet devices and
offers a theoretical 300Mbps wireless
throughput.
Secure and Inter-operable
With the AT-WR2304N your network is
protected by 128-bit, ‘shared key’ WEP
encryption, WPA and WPA2. The AT-WR2304N
helps keep intruders out of your networked
computers.
WDS-Based Wireless Bridging and
Repeating Support
With the WDS (Wireless Distribution System)
support in the AT-WR2304N, you can cover
network dead spots by adding the products in
that area to gain signal strength.
Key Features
• Power saving (green technology)
• IEEE 802.11b/g/n compliant
• Theoretical 300Mbps wireless throughput
• WiFi certificated
Also, WDS allows the AT-WR2304N to
wirelessly communicate with each other or
other WDS-based wireless routers in order to
extend the range of a wireless network.
• Three operation modes: gateway, bridge and
wireless ISP
• Security
Easy-to-use Configuration Software
- MAC access control for wireless interface
Allied Telesis’ user friendly configuration wizard
takes you through configuring your network,
step-by-step.
- Inhibit SSID broadcast
With the AT-WR2304N at the center of your
network, you don't have to be an IT
professional to set up your own network place
with shared printers, files, and Internet
connections.
- WPA-EAP (TLS, PEAK, TTLS, EAP-SIM),
- 64, 128-bits WEP, static and dynamic mode,
open/share authentication
WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA-PSK (AES)
- WPA2-EAP (TLS, PEAK, TTLS, EAP-SIM),
WPA2-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK (AES)
- IEEE 802.1x authenticator
- Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
• Wireless auto-channel selection
• Support TCP/UDP/ICMP/ARP protocol stack
• Wireless Distribution System (WDS)
• NAT/NAPT.VPN pass-through with multiple
sessions (IPSEC, L2TP, PPTP)
• Firewall, DoS,IP/Port/MAC filtering
IEEE 802.11i support provides additional
comfort of mind that your network will remain
highly secured.
The AT-WR2304N is also Wi-Fi certified, which
means you can use it with any wireless client
devices from other Wi-Fi vendors.
• WAN access mode
• PPPoE PPTP/L2TP support
• Fixed IP address support

Password - Protected Configuration
Internet Access
Shared Internet Access
Using the access control feature, you can assign
LAN users to different groups, and determine
which Internet services are available to each
group.
Optional password protection is provided to
prevent unauthorized users from modifying the
configuration data and settings.
All users on the LAN or WLAN can access the
Internet through the AT-WR2304N, using only a
single external IP Address. The local (invalid) IP
addresses are hidden from external sources. This
process is called NAT (Network Address
Translation).
DSL and Cable Modem Support
The AT-WR2304N has a 10/100TX Ethernet port
for connecting a DSL or cable modem. All popular
DSL and cable modems are supported.
Wireless LAN Security
Communication Applications
Support for Internet communication applications,
such as interactive games, telephony, and
conferencing applications, which are often difficult
to use when behind a firewall, is included.
NAT/NAPT Protection
Special Internet Applications
The Internet (WAN port) connection supports
PPPoE (PPP over Ethernet), PPTP (Peer-to-Peer
Tunneling Protocol), as well as ‘direct connection’
type services.
Applications which use non-standard connections
or port numbers are normally blocked by the
Firewall. The ability to define and allow such
applications is provided, to enable such
applications to be used normally. Application Layer
Gateway (ALG) feature supports RTP/RTSP, AOL,
FTP, ICMP, WMP/MMS, NetMeeting and SIP.
Fixed or Dynamic IP Address
DHCP Support
PPPoE, and PPTP
On the Internet (WAN port) connection, the
AT-WR2304N supports both dynamic IP address
(IP address is allocated on connection) and fixed
IP address.
MAC Address Cloning
This feature allows you to hide your MAC address
from hackers or to replace those devices whose
MAC address is monitored by ISP.
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is supported, as
well as wireless access control to prevent
unknown wireless stations from accessing your
LAN.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is
a network application protocol used by network
devices to get configuration information for
operation in an Internet protocol network. Both
client and server features are available.
DNS Support
DDNS (Dynamic DNS) allows Internet users to
connect to virtual servers on your LAN using a
domain name, even if your IP address is not fixed.
DNS relay allows the system to appear as a DNS
server to other IP stations while it simply forwards
the requests to real DNS servers, and their
responses are forwarded back to the original
requesters.
Internet Access Log
An intrinsic side effect of NAT (Network Address
Translation) technology is that by allowing all LAN
users to share a single IP address, the location and
even the existence of each PC is hidden. From the
external viewpoint, there is no network, only a
single device - the AT-WR2304N.
NAPT extends NAT translating the transport
identifier too.
Denial of Service support
Denial of Service (DoS) attacks can flood your
Internet connection with invalid packets and
connection requests, using so much bandwidth
and so many resources that Internet access
becomes unavailable. AT-WR2304N offer block
pinging, port scan, sync flood protections.
Firewall support
To prevent unauthorized access to the local
network, the Firewall provides:
• De-militarized Zone (DMZ)
• ICMP blocking
• MAC/IP address filtering
See which Internet connections have been made.
Time Zone
Time synchronization is supported by Network
Time Protocol (NTP) client.
VPN Pass-through Support
• Policy-based parental controls (port
range/service, Internet domain restriction,
dynamic URL filter)
• Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI)
PCs with VPN (Virtual Private Networking)
software using PPTP, L2TP and IPSec are
transparently supported - no configuration is
required.
