802.11a/b/g Wireless Access Points
Crestron CEN-WAP-ABG
Single-Wire Hookup
Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability powers a CEN-WAP-ABG through the LAN
wiring, eliminating the need for a separate power supply. A Category 5 (CAT5)
cable simply connects the wireless access point to a PoE injector (PWE-4803RU),
allowing for installation at a convenient location apart from the access point.
Alternatively, using the Crestron five-port PoE switch (CEN-SW-POE-5), up to four
access points can be powered from a single location, simplifying design and wiring.
A third-party PoE source device can also be used to power the access point.
No Configuration Required
Using a CEN-WAP-ABG, a secure Wi-Fi touchpanel connection can be made
quickly and easily right out of the box. Each wireless access point ships with a
unique network name and network key printed on a removable sticker on the front of
the unit. Entering this information into the touchpanel is all that is required to
complete the connection. Multiple access points can be installed in the same vicinity
without causing any connection problems.
Web-Browser Configuration and Management
For applications that require a customized configuration, a CEN-WAP-ABG features
built-in browser-based management tools. From any Web browser, the easy setup
wizard lets you simply select the scenario, such as a standalone network or a highsecurity environment, and applies the necessary configuration settings for you. After
configuration using the setup wizard is completed, step-by-step instructions are then
provided for connecting Crestron Wi-Fi touchpanels to the network. Beyond the
wizard, there are more comprehensive configuration and security settings available
for advanced users and system administrators.
Enterprise Level Security
For a secure wireless network in the home or office, a CEN-WAP-ABG supports up
to 152-bit WEP encryption as well as more advanced WPA and WPA2
authentication and encryption methods. RADIUS certificates are also supported for a
true enterprise level solution.
DHCP Server
A CEN-WAP-ABG can assign IP addresses automatically to touchpanels and other
client devices using DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol).
MAC Address Filtering
Unauthorized devices can be prevented from joining the wireless network,
maximizing bandwidth for control and streaming AV signals to support only the
touchpanels, computers, and other devices that you specify. MAC filtering increases
security without switching to an authentication method with more overhead.
Event Logging
To assist in troubleshooting, a CEN-WAP-ABG keeps a history of the last 500 client
connections, disconnections, and failure events, and includes helpful details such as
the reason for a disconnect or failure.

configuration than that provided by the wizard and also allows monitoring
of the status of the access point.
Accessing the Configuration Utility
NOTE: Configuration of a CEN-WAP-ABG must be performed from a computer
whose IP address is in the same IP subnet. The default configuration of the access
point allows the IP address of the access point to be automatically assigned by a
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server on the local area network.
If a DHCP server does not exist on the network and 45 seconds have elapsed since
the access point was powered on, the IP address of the access point defaults to
192.168.1.222 and the subnet mask defaults to 255.255.255.0.
You can access the configuration utility from a Web browser or from the Crestron
Toolbox:
•
You can access the configuration utility from a Web browser if you know
the IP address or host name of the access point.
NOTE: The default host name of the access point is CEN-WAP-ABG-1G.
For additional information, refer to “Using a Web Browser” on page 16.
•
You can access the configuration utility from the Crestron Toolbox if the
access point is configured to operate in DHCP mode (default configuration).
The Crestron ToolBox automatically discovers the IP address of the access
point. For additional information, refer to “Using the Crestron ToolBox” on
page 16.

based on other channels already in use. The access point looks at nearby
access points in the channel range 1-11 and selects the first available
channel that has no other networks present.
•
Select the appropriate RF channel for your wireless network. Channel
numbers range from 1 (2.412 GHz) (default setting) to 11 (2.462 GHz).
NOTE: The number of available RF channels depends on local
regulations.
NOTE: To avoid one access point from interfering with others in range, set
the channel number of the access points to different channels. In 802.11b
networks, use channels 1, 6, and 11 to ensure enough frequency separation
to avoid conflicts. For additional information, refer to the latest version of
the Best Practices for Installation and Setup of Crestron RF Products

Frag. Threshold (byte): In the text box, enter the maximum number of bytes a data
packet must be before breaking into smaller pieces (fragmenting) and transmitting
over the network. The default setting is 2346.
NOTE: The recommended setting is 2346 bytes (default). A smaller setting creates
smaller packets and therefore more packets for each transmission. In areas, however,
where wireless communication is poor or a great deal of radio interference occurs,
you may lower the setting to about 500 bytes.
NOTE: Whenever you change the default setting, it is recommended that you
perform range and reconnection testing.

Operations & Installation Guide – DOC. 6695C
Crestron CEN-WAP-ABG
802.11a/b/g Wireless Access Points
NOTE: A low value causes RTS packets to be sent more often, consuming more of
the available bandwidth and therefore reducing the apparent throughput of the
network packet. The more packets that are sent, however, the quicker the access
point can recover from interference or collisions.
If several touchpanels are connected to a single access point, lowering the RTS
threshold to a value ranging from 500 to 1000 may improve performance. Assigning
a dedicated access point to each touchpanel improves the performance more.
Beacon Interval (ms): In the text box, enter the desired number of milliseconds
between beacon transmissions. The access point transmits beacons to let the wireless
clients know its name and information. The default setting is 100.
NOTE: By increasing the beacon interval, you reduce the number of beacons and
associated overhead. Increasing the beacon interval, however, delays the association
and roaming process since devices scanning for available access points may miss the
beacons.
A high value ranging from 250 to 500 milliseconds may improve performance in
areas with high radio interference but can also increase reconnection time.
Decreasing the value below 100 does not improve reconnection time.
