General
SSID
The SSID is an identification string of up to 32 ASCII characters that differentiate
the ASUS WL-330N from other manufacturers. The SSID is also referred to as the
“ESSID” or “Extended Service Set ID.” You can use the default SSID and radio
channel unless more than one WL-330N is deployed in the same area. In that
case, you should use a different SSID and a radio channel for each WL-330N. All
ASUS Wireless APs/Routers and ASUS 802.11n/802.11g/802.11b WLAN client
adapters must have the same SSID to allow a wireless mobile client to roam. By
default, the SSID is set to “ASUS”.
Wireless Mode
This field indicates the 802.11n interface mode. Selecting “Auto” allows 802.11g,
802.11b, and 802.11n clients to connect to WL-330N. Selecting “b/g Mixed” allows
802.11b/g/n clients to connect to WL-330N, but 802.11n clients only run at a speed
of 54Mbps. Selecting “n only” maximizes performance, but prevents 802.11b/g
clients from connecting to your device. Selecting “b only” allows only 802.11b
clients to connect to your device. Selecting “g only” allows only 802.11g clients
to connect to your device. If “b/g Protection” is checked, protection of 11g or 11b
traffic is enabled automatically in the presence of 11g/11b traffic.
4-12 Chapter 4: Configuration
Channel
The 802.11n/802.11g/802.11b specifications supports up to 14 overlapping
channels for radio communication. To minimize interference, configure each ASUS
WL-330N to be non-overlapping; select Auto from the Channel drop-down list
to enable the system to select a clear channel during boot up as your operating
channel.
Based on your site survey of your network facility, make sure that all the ASUS
WL-330N sharing the same channel, or channels in close number frequency, are
located far from each other as possible.
Authentication Method
This field enables you to set different authentication methods which determine
different encryption schemes. The relationships among Authentication Method,
WPA Encryption, WPA Pre-Shared Key, WEP Encryption, Passphrase, and WEP
Keys are listed in the following table. If all your clients support WPA, using “WPAPSK” is recommended for better security.

ASUS WL-330N
4-13
The following section explains low-level (64-bit) and high-level (128-bit) WEP
Encryption schemes:
64-bit WEP Encryption
64-bit WEP and 40-bit WEP are the same encryption methods and can
interoperate in a wireless network. This level of WEP encryption uses a 40-bit (10
Hex character) encryption scheme as a secret key, which is set by the user, and a
24-bit “Initialization Vector” scheme, which is not under user control.
Together these two schemes make a 64-bit (40 + 24) encryption scheme. Some
vendors refer to this level of WEP as 40-bit and others refer to this as 64-bit. ASUS
WLAN products use the term 64-bit when referring to this lower level of encryption.
128-bit WEP Encryption
104-bit WEP and 128-bit WEP are the same encryption method and can
interoperate on a wireless network. This level of WEP encryption uses a 104-bit
(26 Hex character) encryption scheme as a secret key which is set by the user,
and a 24-bit “Initialization Vector”, which is not under user control.
Together these two schemes make a 128-bit (104 + 24) encryption scheme. Some
vendors refer to this level of WEP as 104-bit and others refer to this as 128-bit.
ASUS WLAN products use the term 128-bit when referring to this higher level of
encryption.
Key Index
The Default Key field lets you specify which of the four encryption keys to use to
transmit data on your wireless LAN. As long as the ASUS WL-330N or wireless
mobile client with which you are communicating has the same key in the same
position, you can use any of the keys as the default key.
WEP Key
You can set a maximum of four WEP keys. A WEP key is either 10 or 26
hexadecimal digits (0~9, a~f, and A~F) based on whether you select 64-bits or
128-bits in the WEP pull-down menu. The ASUS WL-330N and ALL of its wireless
clients MUST have at least the same default key.
If the ASUS WL-330N and ALL of its wireless clients use the same four WEP keys,
select “key rotation” to maximize security. Otherwise, choose one key in common
as the default key.
ASUS Passphrase
Select “WEP-64bits” or “WEP-128bits” in the Encryption field, and the Access
Point generates four WEP keys automatically. A combination of up to 64 letters,
numbers, or symbols is required. Alternatively, leave this field blank and type in
four WEP keys manually.
WEP-64bit key: 10 hexadecimal digits (0~9, a~f, and A~F)
WEP-128bit key: 26 hexadecimal digits (0~9, a~f, and A~F)
4-14 Chapter 4: Configuration
The ASUS WLAN family of products uses the same algorithm to generate WEP keys. It
eliminates the need for users to remember passwords and maintains compatibility between
products. But, this method to generate WEP keys is not as secure as manual assignment.
Network Rotation Key Interval
This field specifies the time interval (in seconds) after which a WPA group key is
changed. Enter ‘0’ (zero) to indicate that a periodic key-change is not required.
WPS
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) provides easy and secure establishment of a
wireless network. You can configure WPS here via the PIN code method.
WPS supports Open system, WPA-Personal, and WPA2-Personal authentication
methods, but does not support Shared Key.
• To remove the PIN code, press the Restore button at the bottom of the device.
• Use the WPS button and PIN code method in Router mode. Access Point (AP), Hotspot,

Troubleshooting
This troubleshooting guide provides solutions to some common problems that you may
encounter while installing or using the ASUS WL-330N. These problems require simple
troubleshooting that you can perform by yourself. Contact the ASUS Technical Support if you
encounter problems not mentioned in this section.
A-2
Problem
Action
The ASUS WL-330N
does not power up.
• Use a test meter to measure the voltage output of
the power source through the power plug.
• Check if the power plug is properly connected to the
device.
Other devices cannot
communicate with
the ASUS WL-330N
through a wired
network connection.
• Verify your network configuration to ensure that there
is no IP address duplication. Turn off the device in
question, then ping the assigned IP address of the
device. Make sure no other device responds to that
address.
• Check if the cables have the proper pin outs and
connectors. You may also use another LAN cable.
• You can also reset all settings to their factory
defaults manually by pushing the “Reset” button on
the ASUS WL-330N while it is ON.
• Make sure the hub, switch, or computer connected
to the ASUS WL-330N supports 10Mbps or 100Mbps
speed.
Do this by check the ASUS WL-330N and the Hub
LEDs. When you connect the ASUS WL-330N to a
10/100 Mbps hub, both the Hub LED and the ASUS
WL-330N Ethernet LEDs should light up.
The throughput seems
slow.
Avoid placing the device behind a metal object. Clear
obstacles between the AP and the device. Try moving
the client closer to the ASUS WL-330N and check if
the throughput increases. Consider adding a second
ASUS WL-330N to implement roaming.
Where can I get a
firmware file to upgrade
the ASUS WL-330N?
You may download the latest firmware file from the
ASUS website (www.asus.com).
Use the Firmware Upgrade page in the Web

with the same IP address, reset the ASUS WL-330N
to access the Web Configuration utility again.
My ASUS WLAN card
can not associate with
the ASUS WL-330N.
• Make sure your WLAN card has the same
specifications as the ASUS WL-330N (IEEE 802.11b/
g/n). Minimize the distance between the devices.
The ASUS WLAN card may be out of range of the
ASUS WL-330N.
• Check if the ASUS WL-330N and the ASUS WLAN
card have the same SSID.
• When encryption is enabled, check if the ASUS
WL-330N and the ASUS WLAN card have the same
encryption settings.
• Check if the Wireless LED of the ASUS WL-330N is
on.
• When the Access Control table is enabled, check
if the MAC address of the ASUS WLAN card is
