Rotatable Dipole Antenna One unidirectional dipole antennas is located on the side of the AP. The antennas can rotate 180 degrees. The antenna should be oriented in the vertical position for best performance. 6 P74341_F5D6130_v2K_man.qxd 9/16/03 10:05 AM Page 7 PLACEMENT OF YOUR ACCESS POINT Proper placement of your AP is important to ensure the best performance of your wireless network. Indoors, your Wireless Access Point can typically provide a circular coverage area of 300 feet or more. However, different types of construction materials and other obstructions in a building can greatly affect the wireless signal and decrease the range. If possible, place your AP as close as possible to the center of the area that you want to cover. In multistory homes, place the AP on a floor that is as close to the center of the home as possible; this may mean placing the AP on an upper floor. Use care when choosing the location of your AP • Be aware of appliances or large objects such as a refrigerator or washer/dryer unit that may be on the opposite side of a wall from where you decide to place your AP. • Place the AP on top of a desk and away from metal cabinets and computer cases. • Do not place objects or components on top of the AP. • Make sure that the antenna is pointing UP at all times. • Metallic-based UV window tint can affect wireless performance. Do not place the AP next to a tinted window. We realize that in the real world, it may not be possible to place your AP in the center of your coverage area. In cases where you may experience difficulty covering the entire area you want, try placing the AP as high as possible. Wireless devices work best in a line-of-sight situation where there are no obstacles between the wireless computer and the AP. The AP may also be mounted to a wall with the antennas facing UP. There are other options for expanding your wireless coverage area. Visit http://www.belkin.com/networking for solutions. The wireless signal can be affected by many things including neighboring wireless networks, microwave ovens in operation, and 2.4GHz cordless phones. While these things can affect the network performance, your wireless network typically will work fine under most conditions where these devices exist. 7 P74341_F5D6130_v2K_man.qxd 9/16/03 10:05 AM Page 8 QUICK SETUP The AP is configured at the factory to operate correctly out-of-the-box. Simply connecting the AP to your existing network will instantly add wireless capabilities to your network with no further configuration required. Belkin ships software that will allow you to locate and connect to the Access Point on your network so you can easily change or modify the settings if you wish. Before you can use the software, you must physically install the Access Point. Once the AP is installed, you can use the software to modify the settings. Follow the steps below to install your AP.

From this tab you can make changes to the wireless network name (SSID), operating channel, and encryption security settings. IP Settings 15 P74341_F5D6130_v2K_man.qxd 9/16/03 10:05 AM Page 16 CONFIGURING THE WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS Changing the Wireless Channel Auto: There are a number of operating channels you can choose from. In the United States, there are 11 channels. In the United Kingdom and most of Europe, there are 13 channels. In a small number of other countries, there are other channel requirements. Your AP is configured to operate on the proper channels for the country you reside in. The default channel is 11 (unless you are in a country that does not allow channel 11). The channel can be changed if needed. If there are other wireless networks operating in your area, your network should be set to operate on a channel that is different than the other wireless networks. For best performance, use a channel that is at least five channels away from the other wireless network. For instance, if another network is operating on channel 11, then set your network to channel 6 or below. To change the channel, select the channel from the drop-down list. Click “Apply Changes”. The change is immediate. 16 P74341_F5D6130_v2K_man.qxd 9/16/03 10:05 AM Page 17 CONFIGURING THE WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS Changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID) To identify your wireless network, a name called the SSID (Service Set Identifier) is used. The default SSID of the AP is “WLAN”. You can change this to anything you want to or you can leave it unchanged. If there are other wireless networks operating in your area, you will want to make sure that your SSID is unique (does not match that of another wireless network in the area). To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the SSID field (1) and click “Apply Changes” (2). The change is immediate. If you make a change to the SSID, your wireless-equipped computers may also need to be reconfigured to connect to your new network name. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change. (1) (2) Using the Broadcast SSID Feature Note: This advanced feature should be employed by advanced users only. For security, you can choose not to broadcast your network’s SSID. Doing so will keep your network name hidden from computers that are scanning for the presence of wireless networks. To turn off the broadcast of the SSID, remove the check mark from the box next to “Broadcast SSID”, and then click “Apply Changes”. The change is immediate. Each computer now needs to be set to connect to your specific SSID; an SSID of “ANY” will no longer be accepted. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change. Changing the Wireless Security Settings Your AP is equipped with the security standard called WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). By default, wireless security is disabled.
