1 Product Overview Thank you for using M35. It is a powerful, enhanced, enterprise scale product with 7+1 multi‐functions Access Point, Access Point with WDS function, Client Bridge, WDS Bridge, Repeater, AP Router, Client Router, and Mesh. M35 is easily to install almost anywhere with Power over Ethernet for quick indoor installation and regular Power by Adapter. External N‐type antenna provides better wireless signal quality and the antenna is upgradeable. M35 can manage power level control, Narrow bandwidth selection, Traffic shaping and Real‐time RSSI indicator. M35 is fully support of security encryption including WI‐Fi Protected Access (WPA‐PSK/WPA2‐PSK), 64/128/152‐bit WEP Encryption and IEEE 802.1x with RADIUS Accounting. 1.1 Benefits The following list describes the design of the M35 made possible through the power and flexibility of wireless LANs: a) Difficult‐to‐wire environments There are many situations where wires cannot be laid easily. Historic buildings, older buildings, open areas and across busy streets make the installation of LANs either impossible or very expensive. b) Temporary workgroups Consider situations in parks, athletic arenas, exhibition centers, disaster‐recovery, temporary offices and construction sites where one wants a temporary WLAN established and removed. c) The ability to access real‐time information Doctors/nurses, point‐of‐sale employees, and warehouse workers can access real‐time information while dealing with patients, serving customers and processing information. d) Frequently changed environments Show rooms, meeting rooms, retail stores, and manufacturing sites where frequently rearrange the workplace. 4
e) Wireless extensions to Ethernet networks Network managers in dynamic environments can minimize the overhead caused by moves, extensions to networks, and other changes with wireless LANs. f) Wired LAN backup Network managers implement wireless LANs to provide backup for mission‐critical applications running on wired networks. g) Training/Educational facilities Training sites at corporations and students at universities use wireless connectivity to ease access to information, information exchanges, and learning. High Speed Data Rate Up to 108Mbps High Output Power up to 28 dBm IEEE 802.11b/g Compliant Detachable antenna support (N‐Type) 7+1 Multi‐Function Point‐to‐point, Point‐to‐multipoint Wireless Connectivity Channel Bandwidth Selection Support RSSI Indicator (CB mode) Power‐over‐Ethernet Support Multi‐SSID function (4 SSID) in AP mode WPA2/WPA/ WEP/ IEEE 802.1x support MAC address filtering in AP mode PPPoE/PPTP function support (AP Router/CR mode) SNMP Remote Configuration Management QoS (WMM) support Benefits

High Speed Data Rate Up to 108Mbps Capable of handling heavy data payloads such as MPEG video streaming 1.2 Feature Access Point Mode Use this feature to setup the access point’s configuration information. It has support adjusting transmit power and channel. Client can access the network with different regulatory settings and automatically change to the local regulations. Client Bridge Mode Use this feature to connect to an Access Point and enjoy the great speed of surfing internet. WDS Mode Use this feature to link multiple APs in a network, All clients associated with any APs can communicate each other like an ad‐hoc mode. Repeater Mode Use this feature to extend the wireless signal coverage area. AP Router Mode This feature provides ability to connect to internet and has a DHCP server build inside that allows client easily to retrieve automatically. Client Router Mode This feature functions completely opposite but similarly with AP Router Mode. Client Router connected to an AP wirelessly and transmit internet connection protocol through AP to access the internet. Mesh Mode Use this feature to establish a NET type of network. Mesh can reduce the cost of the T1 and xDSL wired network. If one path of the network is broken or blocked, the transmission is automatically find the best path to the destination. Multiple SSIDs M35 supports up to 4 SSIDs on your access point. The following options can be set to each SS to each SSID: - SSID for public or private network - Authentication is fully supported - VLAN identifier - Radius accounting identifier - Profile isolation for infrastructure network VLAN Specify a VLAN number for each SSID to separate the services among clients. QoS Use this feature to limit the incoming or outgoing throughput. Wi‐Fi Protect Access Wi‐Fi Protect Access is a standard‐based interoperable security enhancement that increases the level of data protection and access control for existing and future wireless LAN system. It is compatible with IEEE 802.11i standard WPA leverages TKIP and 802.1X for 6
authenticated key management. 1.3 Package Contents Open the package carefully, and make sure that none of the items listed below are missing.

2 M35 Multi‐Function Instruction Guide 2.1 Access Point In the Access Point Mode with WDS Function, M35 function likes a central connection for any stations or clients that support IEEE 802.11b/g and SuperG network. Stations and Client must configure the same SSID and Security Password to associate within the range. M35 supports 4 different SSIDs to separate different clients at the same time. 2.2 Access Point with WDS Function M35 also supports WDS function in Access Point Mode without losing AP’s capabilities. Configure others Access Point’s Wireless MAC Address in both Access Point devices to enlarge the wireless area by enabling WDS Link Settings. WDS function can support up to 8 different AP’s MAC addresses. Auction: Not every Access Point device has support WDS in Access Point Mode. It is recommended using M35 if you would like to use this service. 9
2.3 Client Bridge In the Client Bridge Mode, the M35 function likes a wireless dongle. Connected to an Access Point wirelessly and surf internet whenever you want. Using Site Survey to scan all the Access Point within the range and configure its SSID and Security Password to associate with it. Connect you station to the LAN port of the M35 via Ethernet. 2.4 WDS Bridge In the WDS Bridge Mode, the M35 can wirelessly connect different LANs by just simply configure each other’s MAC Address and Security Settings. This mode is used when two wired LANs locate in small distance and want to communicate each other. The best solution is using M35 wirelessly connect two wired LANs. WDS Bridge Mode can establish 16 WDS links, the connection diagram is like a Star. Auction: WDS Bridge Mode is not function like Access Point. APs linked by WDS are using the same frequency channel, more APs connected together may lower throughput. Please be aware to avoid loop connection diagram, otherwise enable Spanning Tree Function. 10
2.5 Repeater In the Repeater Mode, the M35 can extend the wireless coverage area of another Access Point or Wireless Router. Access Point or Wireless Router must within the range and M35 must use the same SSID, Security Password and Channel. 2.6 AP Router In the AP Router Mode, the M35 has DHCP server build inside that allows you to configure easily via wireless. AP Router Mode can also support four different SSIDs. Use wireless device to associate with M35, connect an Ethernet through the WAN port. You can surf internet whenever you want within 11
the range. 2.7 Client Router In the Client Router Mode, the M35 has DHCP Server build inside that allows many LANs automatically generate an IP address to share the same Internet. Connect an AP/WISP Wirelessly and connect to LANs via wired. Client Router Mode is act completely opposite to the AP Router Mode. 2.8 Mesh In the Mesh Mode, the M35 is act like an independent node and each node is allowed connecting to another network. If one node is lost, the continuous connection through around the broken or blocked by hopping from node to node until the destination is reached. Each node is connected to every other node. Mesh network is similarly to the ad hoc network. 12
In Mesh Mode, recommended 1 Gateway with 4 Relay Linear and radiative deployment scenario. 13
3 Computer Configuration Instruction 3.1 Assign a Static IP In order to configure M35, please follow the instruction below: 1.
