1 Browse to the Admin Tool (http://10.0.0.1), using a computer or device that is currently connected to you Gateway (either
wired or wirelessly).

The following fields are available for configuration:
Wireless Network:
Allows you to enable or disable this access point.
Network Name (SSID):
To distinguish one wireless network from another, each wireless network has its own network name, often referred to as
Service Set IDentifier (SSID). All your wireless clients on your network must use this network name (SSID).
Mode:
The standards that are allowed for wireless communication. Only devices that support one of the selected modes can
connect to the Gateway.
Security Mode:
The encryption type used to secure your wireless communication. We recommend using the default encryption,
WPAWPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES) as it is compatible with most of the Wi-Fi devices and offers an excellent level of security.
Open and WEP are to be avoided because of their own security flaws and should not be used in normal conditions.
Channel Selection:
The default setting is Automatic, the Gateway automatically selects the best channel for your wireless communication. We
recommend you not to change this setting.
Channel:
The channel that is currently used for your wireless communication.
Network Password:
The wireless network key that is used for encrypting your wireless communication.
Show Network Password:
When you select the Show Network Password check box, the text in the Network Password will no longer be masked.
