For added security, you can set up a list of MAC addresses (unique client
identifiers) that are allowed access to your network. Every computer has its
own MAC address. Simply enter these MAC addresses into a list using the
web-based user interface and you can control access to your network.
Works with Both PCs and Mac® Computers
The Access Point supports a variety of networking environments including Mac
OS® 8.x, 9.x, X v10.x, AppleTalk®, Linux®, Windows® 95, 98, Me, NT®, 2000,
and XP, and others.
Note: The Access Point can be managed through a web browser without the
included software. The software included supports Windows 98 SE, Me, 2000, and
XP only but IS NOT necessary to use the Access Point.
Web-Based Advanced User Interface
You can set up the AP’s advanced functions easily through your web browser,
without having to install additional software onto the computer. There are no
disks to install or keep track of and, best of all, you can make changes and

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.

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.
Step 1: Connect the AP to a Router, Ethernet Switch, or Hub
Verify the contents of your box. You should have the following:
• Belkin Wireless Network Access Point

QUICK SETUP
Step 2: Install the Discovery Wizard
The Discovery Wizard is a convenient tool for locating and connecting to your
AP. The Discovery Wizard is only necessary if you want to make changes to
the AP’s settings, otherwise, the AP will work out-of-the-box in most cases.
Since the AP is shipped from the factory as a DHCP client, it will obtain an IP
address automatically from the DHCP server on your network. Since this
address is somewhat random, the Discovery Wizard will locate the AP on the
network for you so you don’t have to take extra steps to determine the IP
address of the AP.
1. Insert the CD into your CD-ROM drive.
2. The Belkin Wireless Network Access Point Setup Utility screen will
automatically appear. If it does not appear within 15-20 seconds, then
select your CD-ROM drive and double-click on the folder named “Files”.

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.

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.

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.
