Placement
Position Your Router In The Optimum Location
NetComm Velocity Series - Wireless N150/N300 Router
TM
Placement of your Router
Your wireless connection will be stronger the closer your connected device is to your Router. Your wireless connection and performance will
degrade as the distance between your Router and connected devices increases. This may or may not be noticeable.
If you have concerns about your network’s performance that might be related to range or obstruction factors, try moving the computer to a
position between three to five meters from the Router in order to see if distance is the problem. If difficulties persist even at close range, please
contact NetComm Technical Support.
Note: While some of the items listed below can affect network performance, they will not prohibit your wireless network from functioning; if you are concerned that your network is
not operating at its maximum effectiveness, this checklist may help.
1. Router Placement
Place your Router, as close as possible to the centre of your wireless network devices. To achieve the best wireless network coverage for your
“wireless clients” (i.e., computers enabled by NetComm Wireless USB Adapter, Laptop with Built-in Wireless, Wireless PDA / IPhone):
• Ensure that your Router’s antennas are parallel to each other, and are positioned vertically (toward the ceiling). If your Router itself is
positioned vertically, point the antennas in an upward direction as much as possible.
• In multi-storey homes, place the Router on a floor that is as close to the centre of the home as possible. This may mean placing the
Router on an upper floor.
• Try not to place the Router near a cordless 2.4GHz phone.
2. Avoid Obstacles and Interference
Avoid placing your Router near devices that may emit radio “noise,” such as microwave ovens. Dense objects that can inhibit wireless
communication include:
• Refrigerators
• Washers and/or dryers
• Metal cabinets
• Large aquariums
• Metallic-based, UV-tinted windows
If your wireless signal seems weak in some spots, make sure that objects such as these are not blocking the signal’s path (between your
devices and Router).
3. Cordless Phones
If the performance of your wireless network is impaired after attending to the above issues, and you have a cordless phone:
• Try moving cordless phones away from your Router and your wireless-enabled computers.
• Unplug and remove the battery from any cordless phone that operates on the 2.4GHz band (check manufacturer’s information). If
this fixes the problem, your phone may be interfering.
• If your phone supports channel selection, change the channel on the phone to the farthest channel from your wireless network.
For example, change the phone to channel 1 and move your Router to channel 11. See your phones user manual for detailed
instructions.
• If necessary, consider switching to a 900MHz or 5GHz cordless phone.
4. Choose the “Quietest” Channel for your Wireless Network
In locations where homes or offices are close together, such as apartment buildings or office complexes, there may be wireless networks
nearby that can conflict with yours.
Use the Site Survey capabilities found in the Wireless Utility of your wireless adapter to locate any other wireless networks that are available
(see your wireless adapter’s user manual), and move your Router and computers to a channel as far away from other networks as possible.
• Experiment with more than one of the available channels, in order to find the clearest connection and avoid interference from
neighbouring cordless phones or other wireless devices.
• For NetComm wireless networking products, use the detailed Site Survey and wireless channel information included with your
wireless network card. See your network card’s user guide for more information.
These guidelines should allow you to cover the maximum possible area with your Router. Should you need to cover an even wider area,
you should consider looking at building a hybrid network by combining your wireless network with a HomePlug Network. See NetComm
website for more details on HomePlug products.

Enable 802.1x Authentication
IEEE 802.1x is an authentication protocol. Every user must use a valid account to login to this Access Point before accessing the wireless
LAN. The authentication is processed by a RADIUS server. This mode only authenticates users by IEEE 802.1x, but it does not encrypt the
data during communication.
WEP Encryption
When you select 64-bit or 128-bit WEP key, you have to enter WEP keys to encrypt data. You can generate the key by yourself and enter it.
You can enter four WEP keys and select one of them as a default key. Then the router can receive any packets encrypted by one of the four
keys.
Authentication Type: There are two authentication types: “Open System” and “Shared Key”. When you select “Open System”, wireless
stations can associate with this wireless router without WEP encryption. When you select “Shared Key”, you should also setup a WEP key
in the “Encryption” page. After this has been done, make sure the wireless clients that you want to connect to the device are also setup
with the same encryption key.
Key Length: You can select the WEP key length for encryption, 64-bit or 128-bit. The larger the key will be the higher level of security is
used, but the throughput will be lower.
Key Type: You may select ASCII Characters (alphanumeric format) or Hexadecimal Digits (in the “A-F”, “a-f” and “0-9” range) to be the WEP
Key.
Key1 - Key4: The WEP keys are used to encrypt data transmitted in the wireless network. Use the following rules to setup a WEP key on
the device. 64-bit WEP: input 10-digits Hex values (in the “A-F”, “a-f” and “0-9” range) or 5-digit ASCII character as the encryption keys.
128-bit WEP: input 26-digit Hex values (in the “A-F”, “a-f” and “0-9” range) or 13-digit ASCII characters as the encryption keys.
Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations. You can now configure other sections by choosing Continue,

WPA Pre-Shared Key Encryption
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an advanced security standard. You can use a pre-shared key to authenticate wireless stations and
encrypt data during communication. It uses TKIP or CCMP (AES) to change the encryption key frequently. So the encryption key is not easy
to be cracked by hackers. This is the best security available.

Firewall Settings
The Broadband router provides extensive firewall protection by restricting connection parameters, thus limiting the risk of hacker attacks, and
defending against a wide array of common Internet attacks. However, for applications that require unrestricted access to the Internet, you can
configure a specific client/server as a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).
Note: To enable the Firewall settings select Enable and click Apply
Demilitarized Zone (DMZ)
If you have a client PC that cannot run an Internet application (e.g. Games) properly from behind the NAT firewall, then you can open up the
firewall restrictions to unrestricted two-way Internet access by defining a DMZ Host. The DMZ function allows you to re-direct all packets
going to your WAN port IP address to a particular IP address in your LAN. The difference between the virtual server and the DMZ function is
that the virtual server re-directs a particular service/Internet application (e.g. FTP, websites) to a particular LAN client/server, whereas DMZ
re-directs all packets (regardless of services) going to your WAN IP address to a particular LAN client/server.
Enable DMZ: Enable/disable DMZ
LAN IP Address: Fill-in the IP address of a particular host in your LAN Network that will receive all the packets originally going to the WAN
port/Public IP address above.
Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations.
Denial of Service (DoS)
The Broadband router’s firewall can block common hacker attacks, including Denial of Service, Ping of Death, Port Scan and Sync Flood. If
Internet attacks occur the router can log the events.
Ping of Death: Protections from Ping of Death attack.
Discard Ping From WAN: The router’s WAN port will not respond to any Ping requests
Port Scan: Protects the router from Port Scans.
Sync Flood: Protects the router from Sync Flood attack.
