Security Mode
802.11 standard defines two mechanisms for authentication of
wireless LAN clients: Open Authentication and Shared Key
Authentication.
Choose one of the security modes from the drop down list. If
you choose OPEN or SHARED, you have to type WEP
information.
OPEN – Open authentication is basically null authentication
algorithm, which means that there is no verification of the user.
SHARED – It works similar to Open authentication with only
one major difference. If you choose OPEN with WEP encryption
key, the WEP keys is used to encrypt and decrypt the data but
not for authentication. In Shared key authentication, WEP
encryption will be used for authentication.
If you choose WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal, the
corresponding WPA settings will be listed as follows. You have
to choose the WPA algorithms and type the pass phrase for such
security mode.
WPA Algorithms – Choose Temporal Key Integrity Protocol
(TKIP) or AES for data encryption.
19
VigorAP 800 User’s Guide
Pass Phrase – Please type 8 to 63 alphanumerical characters
here.
WEP
WEP Key Length - WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is a
common encryption mode. It is safe enough for home and
personal use. However, if you need higher level of security,
please consider using WPA encryption (see next section).
Some wireless clients do not support WPA, but support WEP.
Therefore WEP is still a good choice for you if you have such
kind of client in your network environment.
WEP Key Entry Method - There are two types of WEP key
length: 64-bit and 128-bit. Using 128-bit is safer than 64-bit, but

3.3 General Concepts for Wireless LAN
The VigorAP 800 is equipped with a wireless LAN interface compliant with the standard
IEEE 802.11n draft 2 protocol. To boost its performance further, the VigorAP 800 is also
loaded with advanced wireless technology to lift up data rate up to 300 Mbps*. Hence, you
can finally smoothly enjoy stream music and video.
Note: * The actual data throughput will vary according to the network conditions and
environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, network overhead and
building materials.
In an Infrastructure Mode of wireless network, VigorAP 800 plays a role as an Access Point
(AP) connecting to lots of wireless clients or Stations (STA). All the STAs will share the
same Internet connection via VigorAP 800. The General Setup will set up the information
of this wireless network, including its SSID as identification, located channel etc.
Security Overview
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is a legacy method to encrypt each frame transmitted via
radio using either a 64-bit or 128-bit key. Usually access point will preset a set of four keys
and it will communicate with each station using only one out of the four keys.
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access), the most dominating security mechanism in industry, is
separated into two categories: WPA-personal or called WPA Pre-Share Key (WPA/PSK),
and WPA-Enterprise or called WPA/802.1x.
In WPA-Personal, a pre-defined key is used for encryption during data transmission. WPA
applies Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) for data encryption while WPA2 applies
AES. The WPA-Enterprise combines not only encryption but also authentication.
Since WEP has been proved vulnerable, you may consider using WPA for the most secure
connection. You should select the appropriate security mechanism according to your needs.
No matter which security suite you select, they all will enhance the over-the-air data
protection and /or privacy on your wireless network. The VigorAP 800 is very flexible and
can support multiple secure connections with both WEP and WPA at the same time.
WPS Introduction
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) provides easy procedure to make network connection
between wireless station and wireless access point (VigorAP 800) with the encryption of
WPA and WPA2.
It is the simplest way to build connection between wireless network clients and VigorAP 800.
Users do not need to select any encryption mode and type any long encryption passphrase to
setup a wireless client every time. He/she only needs to press a button on wireless client, and
WPS will connect for client and VigorAP 800 automatically.
35
VigorAP 800 User’s Guide
Note: Such function is available for the wireless station with WPS supported.
There are two methods to do network connection through WPS between AP and Stations:
pressing the Start PBC button or using PIN Code.
On the side of VigorAP 800 series which served as an AP, press WPS button once on the
front panel of VigorAP 800 or click Start PBC on web configuration interface. On the side
of a station with network card installed, press Start PBC button of network card.
If you want to use PIN code, you have to know the PIN code specified in wireless client.
Then provide the PIN code of the wireless client you wish to connect to the VigorAP 800.

information.
OPEN – Open authentication is basically null authentication
algorithm, which means that there is no verification of the user.
SHARED – It works similar to Open authentication with only
one major difference. If you choose OPEN with WEP
encryption key, the WEP keys is used to encrypt and decrypt
the data but not for authentication. In Shared key
authentication, WEP encryption will be used for
authentication.
If you choose WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal, the

VigorAP 800 User’s Guide
WEP
WEP Key Length - WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is a
common encryption mode. It is safe enough for home and
personal use. However, if you need higher level of security,
please consider using WPA encryption (see next section).
Some wireless clients do not support WPA, but support WEP.
Therefore WEP is still a good choice for you if you have such
kind of client in your network environment.
WEP Key Entry Method - There are two types of WEP key
length: 64-bit and 128-bit. Using 128-bit is safer than 64-bit,
but it will reduce some data transfer performance.
There are two types of key method: ASCII and Hex. When you
select a key format, the number of characters of key will be
displayed. For example, if you select 64-bit as key length, and
Hex as key format, you’ll see the message at the right of Key
Format is ‘Hex (10 characters) which means the length of
WEP key is 10 characters.
WEP Keys (Key 1 – Key 4) - Four keys can be entered here,
but only one key can be selected at a time. The format of WEP
Key is restricted to 5 ASCII characters or 10 hexadecimal
values in 64-bit encryption level, or restricted to 13 ASCII
characters or 26 hexadecimal values in 128-bit encryption
level. The allowed content is the ASCII characters from 33(!)
to 126(~) except '#' and ','. Such feature is available for WEP
mode.

VigorAP 800 supports two network segments, LAN-A and LAN-B for different SSIDs. With
such feature, the user can dispatch SSIDs with different network segments for reaching the
target of managing wireless network. See the following figure.
In the above figure, VigorAP 800 is used to control the wireless network connection. It can
separate the wireless traffic between accessing internal server and the usage of video.
Wireless station connecting to VigorAP 800 with SSID 1 can get the IP address with the
network segment of 192.168.1.0/24 (LAN-A); wireless station connecting to VigorAP800
with SSID 2 can get the IP address with the same network segment of 192.168.2.0/24
(LAN-B).
LAN-B : 192.168.2.0/24 for internal server
LAN-A : 192.168.1.0/24 for video traffic
