The connection quality depends strongly on the place or surroundings where you put up the WLAN device. Please
ensure that the device or its antennae are neither covered nor built in. We advise you against putting it up near metallic
objects or other electric or radiant devices. In case of reception fluctuations or connection interruptions we recommend
you to move interference sources such as DECT telephones, mobile phones, Bluetooth devices or other WLAN networks
out of the way. If this is not possible, it may also be helpful to change the cable.
System requirements:
• Operating system with TCP/IP protocol installed
• Java-capable web browser such as Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Opera.
Safety instructions:
Do not use the device in moist or extremely dusty areas, on radiators or in the vicinity of heat sources. This device
is not designed for use outdoors. Protect the device from pressure and impact. The device may not be opened or
moved during operation. Do not use the device without an antenna attached
Caution
Use the router with the enclosed power supply unit only. Using other power supply units can cause
irreparable damage to the product.
Note: !!
The “Connect On-Demand” setting is recommended if you have a pay-as-you-go tariff (if you pay
according to volume or time). This means that the Internet connection is disconnected automatically
after the period set in the “Idle time” option. Connection costs may be high if you are permanently
connected to the internet. Please also note that closing the browser does not automatically
disconnect you from the Internet. A number of programs send queries to the Internet or receive
data without this being clearly indicated. For the router, these queries are just as valid as opening
a browser, for example. If you want to ensure that there is no active connection to the Internet, you
should switch off the device.

SSID:
You can enter a clearly identifiable name for your Wireless LAN in this field. The name can have a maximum of 30
characters. Special characters are not supported.
Broadcast SSID (Display WLAN network name):
Here, you can stipulate whether or not your Wireless LAN name should be visible to everyone in the network. The
default setting is Yes.
Channel:
Select the channel you wish to use for your wireless LAN network. In Germany you can choose from channels 1 to
13. Note: You may not be able to select every channel, depending on your location.
Authentication Type (Setting encryption type):
This field is extremely important for the security of your Wireless LAN network. Select the encryption type and
strength. The Hama WLAN ADSL2+ Modem Router supports the following encryption standards:
WEP (64 and 128 Bit)
WPA-PSK (TKIP)
WPA2-PSK (AES)
4.1
WEP encryption:
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a standard encryption algorithm for WLAN. It controls access to the network
and guarantees the integrity of the data. This method is considered unsafe and outdated due to a number of
weaknesses.
33
First select whether you want to use 64
bit or 128 bit encryption. The latter offers
greater security. Next, enter ox and your
Security key (you can use characters
ranging from 0-9 and a-f). The length of the
key is limited to 10 letters/numbers for the
64 bit encryption, and 26 letters/numbers
for the 128 bit encryption.
You can preset up to four keys in the Key #1
to #4 fields. Select Key #1, for example, and
enter your key of choice with the required
length.
Examples:
64 bit Hex (10 characters) = 0x231074a6ef
128 bit Hex (26 characters) = 0x231074a6b9773ce43f91a5bef3
Click SAVE at the bottom of the window to save your settings.
4.2 WPA and WPA2 encryption:
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an encryption method for WLAN. WPA contains the WEP architecture, but offers
additional protection using dynamic codes that are based on the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP). WPA
also offers pre-shared keys (PSK) for user authentication. WPA2 is a development of WPA and uses a different
encryption algorithm, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
Choose between WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK
in the Authentication Type field.
Next, enter the “Pre-Shared Key” (PSK).
The key must be between 8 and 63 random
characters; letters (A-Z), numbers and
punctuation marks are permitted. Any client
wanting to access the access point must
know this character string.
Click SAVE at the bottom of the window to
save your settings.
34
4.3 Advanced settings:
Only the 802.11b/g field is
relevant here. You can set
your Wireless LAN access
point so that this is only
communicated to other clients
that are based on the 802.11b
(11 Mbps) or 802.11g (54 Mbps) standard. The Hama WLAN ADSL2+ Modem Router 54 Mbps supports the following
standards:
802.11b
= only WLAN devices based on 11 Mbps are supported.
802.11g
= only WLAN devices based on 54 Mbps standard are supported.
802.11b+g = WLAN devices based on 54 and 11 Mbps standards are supported at the same time.
Click SAVE at the bottom of the window to save your settings.
4.4 Wireless MAC Address Filtering:
With this function, you can
stipulate which notebooks
and PCs with Wireless LAN

Glossary (Explanation of terminology):
Client:
The term Client is often used colloquially to mean computers in a computer network on which
preferred client applications are performed.
MAC address:
The MAC address (Media Access Control, Ethernet ID or, with Apple, Airport ID and Ethernet ID)
is the hardware address of every individual network adapter, and is used as a unique identifier for
devices in a network. The MAC address is often found on the network card, integrated into the
serial number. You can also locate the address using software; various commands are required
depending on the operating system.
SPI:
Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) refers to a dynamic packet filter whereby every data packet is
assigned a specific active session. The data packets are inspected and the connection state is
included in the decision. During the process of this connection in the firewall, the data packets
are inspected and entered into tables. A data packet comparison and the table determine whether
the data packet is passed through. Data packets that cannot be assigned certain criteria are
not allowed through. In security-relevant applications, firewalls that use the SPI procedure are
therefore superior to the standard packet filter firewalls.
Web:
The World Wide Web (shortened to Web or www) is a system of hypertext documents that is
retrievable over the Internet. The user needs a Web browser to retrieve the data from the Web
server or to display the information on a screen, for example. In the document, the user can
navigate the hyperlinks (which refer to other documents) regardless of the Web server on which
the hyperlinks are saved.
FTP:
The File Transfer Protocol is a network protocol for transferring files over TCP/IP networks. It is
used for transferring files from a server to a client (download), from a client to a server (upload) or
client-controlled between two servers. FTP is also used for creating and reading files, as well as
for renaming and deleting files.
Telnet:
Telnet (Telecommunication Network) is the name of a widely-used network protocol on the
Internet. It is usually used to allow users access to Internet processors by means of the command
line.
SNMP:
The Simple Network Management Protocol is a network protocol that was developed for
monitoring and controlling network elements (routers, servers, switches, printers, computers
etc.) from a central station.
Ping:
Ping is a program used to test whether a particular host or computer is reachable in a network
and for determining its response rate.
WAN:
A Wide Area Network is a computer network that, in contrast to a LAN, covers a very large
geographical area.
50
LAN:
A Local Area Network is a network in which computers or clients are connected using network
cables or wireless LAN.
TCP:
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is a protocol that determines the way in which data should
be exchanged between computers. All modern computer operating systems have TCP and employ
it for exchanging data with other computers. It is a component of the Internet protocol suite, the
core basis of the Internet.
UDP:
The User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is a minimal, connectionless network protocol that belongs
to the transport layer of the Internet protocol suite. The task of the UDP is to ensure that data
transferred over the internet arrives at the correct application.
ICMP:
As with TCP and UDP, the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) uses the Internet Protocol
(IP) and is a core protocol in the Internet protocol suite. Its purpose in networks is to send error
and information messages.
