TRAVEL ROUTER is the world’s smallest 11n Wireless Router and Access Point delivers convenience for users who
need to create a wireless network to share the Internet, documents or multimedia files quickly between computers at
speeds of up to 300Mbps.
Also, you can leave the bulky power adapter behind as the power supply unit is embedded in the device, so it can be
slipped into your pocket easily.
The TRAVEL ROUTER can be connected to the Internet through a DSL/Cable modem at any available location. It can
even share the connection in your hotel’s room if a RJ45 network cable is used.
To ensure your data is secure, the TRAVEL ROUTER supports WiFi Protected Setup (WPS) for simple and easy setup of
WPA2 encryption of the wireless signal.

6. Before you Begin
This section will guide you through the installation process. Placement
of the TRAVEL ROUTER is very important to avoid poor signal
reception and performance. Avoid placing the device in enclosed
spaces such as a closet, cabinet or wardrobe.
6.1 Considerations for Wireless Installation
The operating distance of all wireless devices cannot be pre-determined due to a number of unknown obstacles in the
environment that the device is deployed. These could be the number, thickness and location of walls, ceilings or other
objects that the wireless signals must pass through. Here are some key guidelines to ensure that you have the optimal
wireless range.
1. Keep the number of walls and ceilings between the EnGenius access point and other network devices to a minimum.
Each wall or ceiling can reduce the signal strength, the degradation depends on the building’s material.
2. Building materials makes a difference. A solid metal door or aluminum stubs may have a significant negative effect on
range. Locate your wireless devices carefully so the signal can pass through a drywall or open doorways. Materials
such as glass, steel, metal, concrete, water (fish tanks), mirrors, file cabinets and brick will also degrade your wireless
signal.
3. Interferences can also come from your other electrical devices or appliances that generate RF noise. The most usual
types are microwaves, or cordless phones.
11
6.2 AP Router / AP / Client Bridge Modes
There are three main modes to select from which will influence the installation of the TRAVEL ROUTER. This section will
help you determine which mode works with your setup.
AP Router Mode
AP Router Mode allows you to share an Internet connection to multiple computers.

so extend a wired infrastructure to locations where cabling is
not possible or inefficient to implement.
Note that compatibility between different brands and models is
not guaranteed. It is recommended that the WDS network be
created using the same models for maximum compatibility.
Also note that all Access Points in the WDS network needs to
use the same Channel and Security settings.
To create a WDS network, please enter the MAC addresses
of the Access Points that you want included in the WDS.
There can be a maximum of four access points.
65

66
Advanced
Fragment
Threshold:
Specifies the size of the packet per fragment.
This function can reduce the chance of packet collision.
However when this value is set too low, there will be increased
overheads resulting in poor performance.
RTS Threshold:
When the packet size is smaller than the RTS Threshold, then the
packet will be sent without RTS/CTS handshake which may result in
incorrect transmission.
Beacon Interval:
The time interval that the device broadcasts a beacon. This beacon is
used to synchronize all wireless clients on the network.
DTIM Period:
A Delivery Traffic Indication Message informs all wireless clients that
the access point will be sending Multi-casted data.
N Data Rate:
You can limit the transfer rates between the device and wireless clients.
Each Modulation Coding Scheme (MCS) refers to a specific transfer
speed.
Channel
Bandwidth:
Set whether each channel uses 20 or 40Mhz.
To achieve 11n speeds, 40Mhz channels must be used.
Preamble Type:
A preamble is a message that helps access points synchronize with the
client.
Long Preamble is standard based so increases compatibility.
Short Preamble is non-standard, so it decreases compatibility but
increases performance.
CTS Protection:
When Enabled, the performance is slightly lower however the chances
of packet collision is greatly reduced.
Tx Power:
Set the power output of the wireless signal.
67
Security
This page allows you to set the wireless security settings.
68
Security
SSID Selection:
Select the SSID that the security settings will apply to.
Broadcast SSID:
If Disabled, then the device will not be broadcasting the SSID. Therefore it will be
invisible to wireless clients.
WMM:
WiFi Multi-Media is a Quality of Service protocol which prioritizes traffic in the order
according to voice, video, best effort, background.
Note that in certain situations, WMM needs to be enabled to achieve 11n transfer
speeds.
Encryption:
The encryption method to be applied.
You can choose from WEP, WPA pre-shared key or WPA RADIUS.
• Disabled - no data encryption is used.
• WEP - data is encrypted using the WEP standard.
• WPA-PSK - data is encrypted using the WPA-PSK standard. This is a later standard
than WEP, and provides much better security than WEP. If all your Wireless stations
support WPA-PSK, you should use WPA-PSK rather than WEP.
• WPA2-PSK - This is a further development of WPA-PSK, and offers even greater
security, using the AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) method of encryption.
• WPA-RADIUS - This version of WPA requires a Radius Server on your LAN to
provide the client authentication according to the 802.1x standard. Data
transmissions are encrypted using the WPA standard.
If this option is selected:
• This Access Point must have a "client login" on the Radius Server.
• Each user must have a "user login" on the Radius Server.
• Each user's wireless client must support 802.1x and provide the login data when
required.
• All data transmission is encrypted using the WPA standard. Keys are
automatically generated, so no key input is required.
IEEE 802.1x is an authentication protocol. Every user must use a valid account to login to this Access Point before accessing the
wireless LAN. The authentication is processed by a RADIUS server. This mode only authenticates users by IEEE 802.1x, but it does
not encrypt the data during communication.

This free service is very useful when combined with the
Virtual Server feature. It allows Internet users to connect to
your Virtual Servers using a URL, rather than an IP
Address.
This also solves the problem of having a dynamic IP
address. With a dynamic IP address, your IP address may
change whenever you connect, which makes it difficult to
connect to you.
DDNS Services work as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
You must register for the service at one of the listed DDNS Service providers.
After registration, use the Service provider's normal procedure to obtain your desired Domain name.
Enter your DDNS data on the ETR-9305’s DDNS screen, and enable the DDNS feature.
The Wireless Router will then automatically ensure that your current IP Address is recorded at the DDNS service provider's Domain Name
Server.
