Known Limitations
1. Beacons are sent from the AP inconsistently; therefore you may see decreased
battery life on the handsets.
2. A hex-key is not supported with both WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK. You must use a
passphrase for each.
3. Because the Controller configures a virtual subnet, broadcast data cannot be sent to
the handsets.
Installing Software & Configuration
1. If software upgrades are required, contact Siemens Customer Support for the latest
version of software and instructions.
2. The current version of software installed can be found by opening a telnet session of
the AP and typing the command version, or by looking at the configuration GUI
under Wireless APs and selecting the general tab for the AP in the field s/w version.
3. If you encounter difficulties or have questions regarding the configuration process,
please contact your Siemens representative or visit the web site
http://enterprise.usa.siemens.com/products/solutions/hipathwireless.html
Initial Setup
1. The following instructions are for configuring a wireless controller and a number of
access points with no prior configuration.
2. All of the initial setup is done via a web interface. Connect a ‘Cross-Over’ Ethernet
cable directly from the Management Port of the controller to a PC’s Ethernet port.
3. Log onto the controller by opening a web browser and connect to
https://192.168.10.1:5825/. The default username is admin; the default password is
abc123.
4. Do this step only if it is necessary to reset the controller back to its factory default
configuration:
a. Click the Wireless Controller button to open the Wireless Controller
Configuration screen.
b. In the navigation pane, click System Maintenance.
c. Click the Reset database to factory default and reboot button.
d. Click the Apply button.
This will reset the database and cause the controller to reboot. It will take three
to four minutes before the controller is finished.

Controller Setup
The setup steps described below refer to the network topology diagram shown in this
document. Make sure all the access points are disconnected from the system if
configuring the system for the first time.
Assigning an IP address to a wireless controller
1. Log onto the controller by opening a web browser and connect to
https://192.168.10.1:5825/. The default username is admin; the default password is
abc123.
2. Click the Wireless Controller button.
3. In the navigation pane, click IP Addresses.
4. Change the value of esa0 to 192.168.110.10 for the IP Address, and to
255.255.255.0 for the Subnet mask.
5. Select the Mgmt and SLP check boxes for this port only (thus turning it on). Leave
these unchecked (off) for the other ports.
6. For Function, select Host Port if static routing is used. Otherwise, select Dynamic
Port if OSPF is being used for routing and routing advertisements.
7. Enter esa0 for Multicast Support. Refer to the screen shot shown below.
8. Click the Save button.
PN: 72-9961-00-B.doc
This is for topologies where the SpectraLink gateway(s) and SVP Servers are
located adjacent to the esa0 port, as was done in this VIEW Certification test.
In topologies where the setup is different, this multicast setting should be
configured to whichever port the SpectraLink servers are adjacent to. This
setting permits proper wired replication of multicast data from the wireless
subnet.

Assigning routing protocols to a wireless controller
1. In the Wireless Controller screen, click Routing Protocols in the navigation pane.
2. Enter 0.0.0.0 for the Destination Address and 0.0.0.0 for the Subnet Mask. Add the
appropriate address for the Gateway.
3. Click the Save button.
PN: 72-9961-00-B.doc
If dynamic routing (OSPF) is being used, then the default route should be set
automatically. However, it is always recommended that you assign a
temporary static route in dynamic environments to allow the device to
operate immediately without having to wait for the initial updates. Be sure to
clear the check box for Override dynamic routes. This will allow dynamic
routes to be the default once they arrive.

AP registration
1. Click the Wireless APs button.
2. Click AP registration in the navigation pane.
3. Enter all information for your APs (see screen shot below). Make sure the setting for
Security Mode is selected to Allow all Wireless APs to Connect.
4. Click the Save button.
PN: 72-9961-00-B.doc
This setting allows new APs to be added to the system automatically. Once
the addition of APs is complete,S it is recommended to switch this setting
back to Allow only approved Wireless APs to connect.

AP maintenance
1. In the Wireless APs screen, click AP Maintenance in the navigation pane.
2. Select the proper image file in the AP Images box and click the Set as default
button.
3. Under Upgrade Behavior select the Upgrade when AP connects using settings from
Controlled Upgrade. Option.
4. Select the Do not upgrade AP images if current image version = upgrade version
check box.
5. Under Downgrade Behavior, select the Automatically downgrade AP to default
image if AP is at later release number (major/minor rev) check box.
6. Click the Save button.
