Select SSID
Your Service Set Identifier (SSID), sets your Wireless Network Name.
You can connect multiple devices including Laptops, Desktop PCs and
PDAs to your Wireless Router. To get additional devices connected,
scan for a network, and locate the SSID shown on your Wireless
Security Card. If the SSID does not match, access is denied.
Network Authenti c a t i o n This option is used for authentication to the wireless network. Each
authentication type has its own settings. For example, selecting
802.1X authentication will reveal the RADIUS Server IP address, Port
and key fields.
WPA-Pre-Shared Ke y
It is useful for small places without authentication servers such as
the network at home. It all ows the use of manually-entered keys or
passwords and is designed to be easily set up for home users.
WPA Encryption:
Select the data encryption method for the WPA mode. There are three
types that you can choose, TKIP, AES, TKIP+AES.
TKIP (Temporary Key Integr ity Protocol) takes the original master
key only as a starting point and derives its encryption keys
mathematically from this master key. Then it regularly changes and
rotates the encryption keys so that the same encryption key will
never be used twice.
5.3 CONFIGURATION

AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) provides security between
client workstations operating in ad hoc mode. It uses a mathematical

Description
Band
The new amendment allows IEEE 802.11g units to fall back to speeds of 11 Mbps,
so IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.11g devices can coexist in the same network. The
two standards apply to the 2.4 GHz frequency band. IEEE 802.11g creates datarate parity at 2.4 GHz with the IEEE 802.11a standard, which has a 54 Mbps rate
at 5 GHz. (IEEE 802.11a has other differences compared to IEEE 802.11b or g,
such as offering more channels.)
Channel
Drop-down menu that allows selection of a specific channel.
Auto Channel
Timer (min)
Auto channel scan timer in minutes (0 to disable)
802.11n/EWC
With drop-down menu, “Auto” is for 11n and “Disable” is for 11g
Bandwidth
Drop-down menu specifies the following bandwidth: 20MHz and 40MHz.
Control
Sideband
This is available for 40MHz. Drop-down menu allows selecting upper sideband or
lower sideband
802.11n Rate
Drop-down menu specifies the following fixed rates. The maximum rate for
bandwidth, 20MHz, is 130MHz and the maximum bandwidth, 40MHz, is 270MHz
802.11n
Protection
It is similar as 802.11g protection. In Auto mode the router will use RTS/CTS
to improve 802.11n performance in mixed 802.11n/ 802.11g/ 802.11b networks.
Turn protection off to maximize 802.11n throughput under most conditions.
Support
802.11n client
only
Drop-down menu allows selecting “On/Off”. Choosing “On” allows the client with
11n only to connect, not for 11g or 11b; choosing “Off” allows the client with
11n/11g/11b to connect
54g Rate
Drop-down menu that specifies the following fixed rates: Auto: Default. Uses
the 11 Mbps data rate when possible but drops to lower rates when necessary. 1 Mbps, 2Mbps, 5.5Mbps, or 11Mbps fixed rates. The appropriate setting is
dependent on signal strength.
Multicast Rate
Setting multicast packet transmit rate.
Basic Rate
Setting basic transmit rate.

BSSID
The BSSID is a 48-bit identity used to identify a particular BSS (Basic Service
Set) within an area. In Infrastruct ure BSS networks, the BSSID is the MAC
(Media Access Control) address of the AP (Access Point); and in Independent
BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly.
Associated
Lists all the stations that are associated with the Access Point, along with the
amount of time since packets were transferred to and from each station. If a
station is idle for too long, it is removed from this list.
Authorized
Lists those devices with authorized access.
