6.2 Wireless Security Setting
It is used to configure the AP network’s security setting. Here
presents the common six (ten in all) encryption methods,
including Mixed WEP, WPA-personal, WPA2-personal, etc.
6.2.1 Mixed WEP
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), a basic encryption method,
usually encrypts wireless data using a series of digital keys
(64 bits or 128 bits in length). By using the same keys on
each of your wireless network devices, you can prevent
unauthorized
wireless
devices
from
monitoring
your
transmissions or using your wireless resources. Select Mixed
WEP to enter the following window:


Default Key:Select one key from the four configured
keys as the current available one.
6.2.2 WPA-Personal
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access), a Wi-Fi standard, is a more
recent wireless encryption scheme, designed to improve the
security features of WEP. It applies more powerful encryption
types (such as TKIP [Temporal Key Integrity Protocol] or AES
[Advanced Encryption Standard]) and can change the keys
dynamically on every authorized wireless device.

Select SSID:Select the SSID (main SSID or minor
SSID) to configure security setting from the drop-down
menu.

defines the maximum transmission packet size in bytes.
The packet will be fragmented if the arrival is bigger
than the threshold setting. The default size is 2346
bytes. It is recommended not to modify this value.

RTS Threshold: RTS stands for “Request to Send”. This
parameter controls what size data packet the frequency
protocol issues to RTS packet. The default value of the

Appendix 1:Glossary
Access Point (AP): Any entity that has station functionality
and provides access to the distribution services, via the
wireless medium (WM) for associated stations.
Channel: An instance of medium use for the purpose of
passing protocol data units (PDUs) that may be used
simultaneously, in the same volume of space, with other
instances of medium use(on other channels) by other
instances
of
the
same
physical
layer
(PHY),with
an
acceptably low frame error ratio(FER) due to mutual
interference.
SSID: Service Set identifier. An SSID is the network name
shared by all devices in a wireless network. Your network’s
SSID should be unique to your network and identical for all
devices within the network. It is case-sensitive and must not
exceed 20 characters (use any of the characters on the
keyboard).Make sure this setting is the same for all devices
in your wireless network.
WEP: Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is the method for
secure
wireless
data
transmission.
WEP
adds
data
encryption to every single packet transmitted in the wireless
network.
The 40bit and 64bit encryption are the same
64
11N Wireless Broadband Router
because of out 64 bits, 40 bits are private. Conversely, 104
and 128 bit are the same. WEP uses a common KEY to
encode the data.
Therefore, all devices on a wireless
network must use the same key and same type of
encryption. There are 2 methods for entering the KEY; one
is to enter a 16-bit HEX digit. Using this method, users must
enter a 10-digit number (for 64-bit) or 26-digit number (for
128-bit) in the KEY field. Users must select the same key
number for all devices. The other method is to enter a text
and
let
the
computer
generate
the
WEP
key
for
you. However, since each product use different method for
key
generation,
it
might
not
work
for
different
products. Therefore, it is NOT recommended using.
WPA/WPA2: A security protocol for wireless networks that
builds on the basic foundations of WEP. It secures wireless
data transmission by using a key similar to WEP, but the
added strength of WPA is that the key changes dynamically.
The changing key makes it much more difficult for a hacker
to learn the key and gain access to the network.WPA2 is the
second generation of WPA security and provides a stronger

Appendix 2: Ask and Question
In this part some questions and problems shown during the
Router’s usage and installation will be given suggesting
answers. If your problems are not in the list, please log into
our
website
www.tenda.cn
or
send
an
E-mail
to
support@tenda.cn, and we will reply you in the first time.
1、 Can not login to the Web interface of the Router
after you enter the IP address in the address
field?

Step 1: check the Router if it works well. Once the
device is powered on for a few seconds, the SYS
indicator on the panel will be turned on. If it is not,
please contact us.

Step 2: check the network cables if it is good and the
corresponding indicator is “Always ON”. Sometimes, the
indicator is “Always ON”, but it does not mean it gets
through.

Run “Ping” command and check if it can ping the
Router’s LAN IP address 192.168.0.1. If it is OK, please
make sure your browser does not access the Internet by
proxy server. If the ping fails, you can press the “RESET”
button for 7 seconds to restore to default settings. And
then repeat the ping operation. If it still does not work,
please contact us.
66
11N Wireless Broadband Router
2、Forget the login password and can not enter the
setting page. What can I do?

Press the “RESET” button for 7 seconds to restore the
Router to default settings.
3、 The computer connected with the Router shows IP
address conflict. What can I do?

Check if there are other DHCP servers in the LAN. If
there have, disable them. The default IP address of the
Router is 192.168.0.1 and please maker sure the
address is not occupied by other devices. If there are
two computers with the same IP addresses, please
modify one.
4、 I can not use E-mail and access the Internet. What
can I do?

It happens in ADSL connection and Dynamic IP users.
And you need modify the default MTU value (1492).
Please in the “WAN Setting” modify the MTU value with
the recommended value as 1450 or 1400.
67
11N Wireless Broadband Router
5 、 How to configure and access the Internet via
Dynamic IP?

In Setup Wizard of the Web utility interface, select
“Dynamic IP” connection type and click “Save” to
activate it. As some ISPs bind the user computer’s MAC
address, you need to clone the Router’s WAN MAC
address to the bind21ing PC’s MAC address. Select “MAC
Address Clone” in “Advanced Setting” to input your
computer’s MAC address and click “Apply” to activate it.
6 、 How to share my computer’s source with other
users in Internet?

If you want Internet users to access the internal server
via the Router such as e-mail server, Web, FTP, you can
configure the “Virtual Server” to come true.

Step 1: create your internal server, make sure the LAN
users can access these servers and know related service
port. For example, Web server’s port is 80; FTP is 21;
SMTP is 25 and POP3 is 110.

Step 2: in the Router’s web click “Virtual Server” and
select “Single Port Forwarding”.

Step 3: input the external service port given by the
Router, for example, 80.

Step 4: input the internal Web service port, for example,
80.
68
11N Wireless Broadband Router

Step 5: Input the internal server’s IP address. If your
Web server’s IP address is 192.168.0.10, please input it.

Step 6: select the communication protocol used by your
internal host: TCP, UDP, ICMP.

Step 7: click “Apply” to activate the settings.
