How to create a wired network using Ethernet
cables
The Ethernet ports will adapt automatically to the connected cable type.
This means you can use either type of Ethernet cable, straight-through or
crossover, provided it is Category 5 or higher quality.The four Local
Network ports 1, 2, 3 and 4 on the Wireless Base Station 11g will
automatically negotiate the connection speed to 10 Mbps Ethernet or
100 Mbps Fast Ethernet, and the transmission mode to half duplex or full
duplex.
Use twisted-pair cable to connect any of the four Local Network ports 1, 2,
3, and 4 on the Wireless Base Station 11g to an Ethernet adapter on your
PC. Otherwise, you can cascade any of the Local Network ports 1, 2, 3, and
4 on the Wireless Base Station 11g to an Ethernet hub or switch, and then
connect your PC or other network equipment to the hub or switch.
When inserting an RJ-45 plug, be sure the tab on the plug clicks into
position to ensure that it is properly seated.
Warning:
Do not plug a phone jack connector into any RJ-45 port.This may damage
the Wireless Base Station 11g. Instead, use only twisted-pair cables with
RJ-45 connectors.
How to create a wireless network
For an example, see the chapter on "How to set-up a computer network"'
at the end of this manual.
Install a wireless network adapter in each computer that will be connected
to the Internet or your local network via radio signals. Philips currently
offers several wireless network adapters, including the Philips Wireless USB
Adapter and the Philips Wireless Notebook Adapter.
Rotate both antennas on the back of the Wireless Base Station 11g to the
desired position. For more effective coverage, position antennas along
12
ENGLISH
different axes; for example around 45 to 90 degrees apart.Try to place the
Wireless Base Station 11g in a position that is located in the center of your
wireless network. Normally, the higher you place the antenna, the better the
performance. Ensure that the Wireless Base Station’s location provides
optimal reception throughout your home or office.
Computers equipped with a wireless adapter can communicate with each
other as an independent wireless Local Network by configuring each
computer to the same radio channel. However, the Wireless Base Station
11g can provide access to your wired/wireless Local Network or to the
Internet for all wireless workstations. Each wireless PC in this network
infrastructure can talk to any computer in the wireless group via a radio link,
or access other computers or network resources in the wired Local
Network infrastructure or over the Internet via the Wireless Base
Station 11g.
The wireless infrastructure configuration not only extends the accessibility
of wireless PCs to the wired Local Network, but also increases the effective
wireless transmission range for wireless PCs by retransmitting incoming
radio signals through the Wireless Base Station 11g.
A wireless infrastructure can be used for access to a central database, or for
connection between mobile workers, as shown in the following figure:

Encryption
If you are transmitting sensitive data across wireless channels, you should
enable Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and/or WiFi Protected Access
(WPA) encryption. Encryption requires you to use the same set of
encryption/decryption keys for the Wireless Base Station 11g and all of your
wireless clients. You can choose between standard 64-bit or the more
robust 128-bit encryption.
You may automatically generate encryption keys or manually enter the keys.
For automatic 64-bit security, enter a passphrase and click Generate.
Four keys will be generated (as shown below). Choose a key from the
drop-down list or accept the default key. Automatic 128-bit security
generates a single key.
If you use encryption, configure the same keys used for the Wireless Base
Station 11g on each of your wireless clients. Note that the encryption
protects data transmitted between wireless nodes, but does not protect any
transmissions over your wired network or over the Internet.

ENGLISH
Network Address Translation (NAT)
From this section you can configure the Address Mapping,Virtual Server, and
Special Application features that provide control over the port openings in
the Wireless Base Station’s firewall.This section can be used to support
several Internet based applications such as VPN
Address Mapping
Allows one or more public IP addresses to be shared by multiple internal
users. Enter the Public IP address you wish to share into the Global IP field.
Enter a range of internal IPs that will share the global IP.
Virtual Server
If you configure the Wireless Base Station 11g as a virtual server, remote
users accessing services such as web or FTP at your local site via public IP
addresses can be automatically redirected to local servers configured with
private IP addresses. In other words, depending on the requested service
(TCP/UDP port number), the Wireless Base Station 11g redirects the
external service request to the appropriate server (located at another
internal IP address).
For example, if you set Public Port to TCP/80 (HTTP or web) and the
Private IP/Port to 192.168.2.2/80, then all HTTP requests from outside
users will be transferred to 192.168.2.2 on port 80.Therefore, by just
ENGLISH
29
entering the IP Address provided by the ISP, Internet users can access the
service they need at the local address to which you redirect them.
The more common TCP service ports include: HTTP: 80, FTP: 21,Telnet: 23,
and POP3: 110
Special Applications
Some applications, such as Internet gaming, videoconferencing, Internet
telephony and others, require multiple connections.These applications
cannot work with Network Address Translation (NAT) enabled. If you need
to run applications that require multiple connections, use the following
screen to specify the additional public ports to be opened for each
application.
Specify the public port number normally associated with an application in
the Trigger Port field. Set the protocol type to TCP or UDP, then enter the
ports that the application requires.
Special application connections can also be achieved by selecting the
application type and item number in the Popular applications field, and
clicking the Copy to button to easily specify the port numbers.Then set the
protocol type to TCP or UDP.
Example:
ID Trigger Port Trigger Type Public Port
1 6112
