5.2.1 Basic Wireless Settings
Choose menu “Wireless→Wireless Basics”, you can configure the basic settings
for the wireless network on this page.
Name(SSID): Also called the SSID. Enter a value of up to 32 characters. The same
name must be assigned to all wireless devices in your network .

40MHz in Both Bands, which can adjust the channel width for your clients automatically.
Channel:This field determines which operating frequency will be used. The default
channel is set to Auto, so the AP will choose the best channel automatically. It is not
necessary to change the wireless channel unless you notice interference problems with
another nearby access point.
SSID Broadcast: When wireless clients survey the local area for wireless networks to
associate with, they will detect the SSID broadcast by the Router. If you select the Enable
SSID Broadcast checkbox, the Wireless Router will broadcast its name (SSID) on the air.

User Manual
Security Option: You can configure the security settings of your wireless network. There are
six wireless security modes supported by the Router: WEP,802.1X,WPA, WPA2-PSK, WPA2,
WPA2-PSK. Different item leads different web page settings. Please read the following
information carefully:
Done :If you do not want to use wireless security, check this radio button. But it’s strongly
recommended to choose one of the following modes to enable security.
WEP open and WEP shared —WEP is an encryption scheme that is used to protect user’s
wireless data communications. WEP uses a combination of 64-bit keys or 128-bit keys to
provide access control to user’s network and encryption security for every data transmission.
To decode a data transmission, each wireless client on the network must use an identical
64-bit or 128-bit key. WEP is an older wireless encryption method that is not as hard to
break as the more-recent WPA.
802.1x — In 802.1x (also known as RADIUS), a separate machine called an authentication
server receives a user ID and password. It grants or denies access based on whether the ID
and password match any entries in its account list. User can optionally enable WEP
encryption with this option. Because it requires a separate machine acting as the
authentication server, 802.1x is most often used in business environments.
WPA — WPA is a more recent encryption method that addresses many of the weaknesses in
WEP. Any client capable of WPA encryption should use it instead of WEP.
WPA (PSK) — This is WPA encryption combined with a pre-shared key (PSK), which is a text
string known only to the gateway and authorized wireless clients. The gateway rejects the
login if the client's PSK does not match.
WPA2 — WPA2 is a more advanced encryption method than WPA. Because it is a more
recent standard, some of user’s wireless devices might not be able to use it.
WPA2 (PSK) — This option uses WPA2 with a pre-shared key.
WPA2 and WPA — This option supports WPA2/WPA encryption for devices capable of one
or the other standard. The gateway automatically detects whether a particular device can
use WPA2 or WPA.
WPA2 AND WPA (PSK) — This has WPA2 or WPA encryption based on client abilities, as well
as a pre-shared key.

Host Configuration Protocol) server, which provides the TCP/IP configuration for all the PC(s)
that are connected to the Router on the LAN.
DHCP Server:Enable or Disable the DHCP server. If you disable the Server, you must have
another DHCP server within your network or else you must configure the computer
manually.
IP Poor Range: Specify an IP address for the DHCP Server to start with when assigning IP
addresses. 192.168.1.2 is the default start address. And Specify an IP address for the DHCP
Server to end with when assigning IP addresses. 192.168.1.254 is the default end address.
Max Lease Time:The Address Lease Time is the amount of time a network user will be
allowed connection to the Router with their current dynamic IP Address.
Enter the amount of time in minutes and the user will be "leased" this dynamic IP Address.
After the time is up, the user will be automatically assigned a new dynamic IP address.

Appendix: Frequent Asked Questions
Q: None of the LEDs are on when user power on the ADSL router?
A: Please make sure what user use is the power adaptor attached with the ADSL
router package,and check the connection between the AC power and ADSL
router.
Q: DSL LED does not turn on after connect telephone line?
A: Please make sure what user use is the standard telephone line (as attached with
the package), make sure the line is connected correctly and check whether there
is poor contact at each interface. Wait for 30 seconds to allow the ADSL router
establishes connection with user ADSL operator.
Q: DSL LED is in the circulation of slow-flashing and fast-flashing after connect
telephone line?
A: This situation means the ADSL router is in the status of failing to establish
connection with Central Office. Please check carefully and confirm whether the
ADSL router has been installed correctly.
Q: LAN LED does not turn on after connect Ethernet cable?
A: Please make sure Ethernet cable is connected hub/PC and ADSL router correctly.
Then please make sure the PC/hub have been power on.
Please make sure that user use parallel network cable to connect UpLink port of
hub, or use parallel network cable to connect PC. If connect normal port of hub
(not UpLink port), user must use cross-cable. Please make sure that user’s
network cables meet the networking requirements above.
Q: PC cannot access the Router?
A: Please make sure that all devices communicating with the device must use the
same channel (and use the same SSID). Otherwise user’s PC will not find the
wireless Router.
Q: PC cannot access the Internet?
A: First check whether PC can ping the interface Ethernet IP address of this product
successfully (default value is 192.168.1.1) by using ping application. If ping
application fails, please check the connection of Ethernet cable and check
whether the states of LEDs are in gear.
If the PC uses private IP address that is set manually (non-registered legal IP
address), please check:
1. Whether IP address of the PC gateway is legal IP address. Otherwise please
use the right gateway, or set the PC to Obtain an IP address automatically.
2. Please confirm the validity of DNS server appointed to the PC with ADSL
operator. Otherwise please use the right DNS, or set the PC to Obtain an IP
address automatically.
3. Please make sure user have set the NAT rules and convert private IP
address to legal IP address. IP address range of the PC that user specify
should meet the setting range in NAT rules.
4. Central Office equipment may have problem.
5. The country or the wireless network type user selected is wrong.
Q: PC cannot browse Internet web page?
22
KW55293 Wireless Router
A:
User Manual
Please make sure DNS server appointed to the PC is correct. User can use ping
application program to test whether the PC can connect to the DNS server of the
ADSL operator.
Q: Initialization of the PVC connection failed?
A: Be sure that cable is connected properly from the DSL port to the wall jack. The
DSL LED on the front panel of the ADSL router should be on. Check that user’s
VPI, VCI, type of encapsulation and type of multiplexing setting are the same as
what user collected from user’s service provider, Re-configure ADSL router and
reboot it. If user still can not work it out, user may need to verify these variables
with the service provider.
If the cause is not above given,please contact user’s local service
provider!
