value is too low, it will result in bad performance.
When the packet size is smaller the RTS threshold, the
RTS Threshold wireless access point will not use the RTS/CTS
mechanism to send this packet.
The interval of time that this wireless access point
Beacon Interval broadcast a beacon. Beacon is used to synchronize the
wireless network.
DTIM Period
The DTIM period you specify here indicates how often the
clients served by this access point should check for
48
buffered data which still exists on the AP and waiting for
pickup.
Data Rate
The “Data Rate” is the rate this access point used to
transmit data packets. The access point will use the
highest possible selected transmission rate to transmit the
data packets.
The “Long Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN
Preamble Type compatibility while the “Short Preamble” can provide
better wireless LAN performance.
Broadcast
ESSID
If you enable “Broadcast ESSID”, every wireless station
located within the coverage of this access point will
discover this access point more easily. If you are building
a wireless network which will open to the public, it’s
recommended to enable this feature. Disabling “Broadcast
ESSID” can provide better security.
IAPP
If you enable “IAPP”, it will allow wireless station roaming
between IAPP enabled access points within the same
wireless LAN.
CTS Protect
It is recommended to enable the protection mechanism.
This mechanism can decrease the rate of data collision
between 802.11b and 802.11g wireless stations. When the
protection mode is enabled, the throughput of the AP will
be a little lower due to many of frame traffic will be
transmitted.
Tx Power
Turbo Mode
WMM
You can adjust the wireless transmit power here. By
reduce the TX power, you can reduce the wireless
coverage to make it only cover the area you need.
By enable the turbo mode, you can enhance the

Glossary
Default Gateway (Router): Every non-router IP device needs a default
gateway. When the device sends out an IP packet, if the destination is not in
the same network, the device will send the packet to default gateway, which
will then forward it to the destination.
DHCP: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. This protocol automatically
assigns an IP address for every computer in your network.
DNS Server IP Address: DNS stands for Domain Name System, which allows
Internet servers to have a domain name (such as www.Broadbandrouter.com)
and one or more IP addresses (such as 192.34.45.8). A DNS server will
maintain a database of domain names and respective IP addresses, so when
a domain name is requested (like typing “Broadbandrouter.com” in your
Internet browser), the user will get the corresponding IP address. The DNS
server IP address used by the computers on your home network is the location
of the DNS server your ISP has assigned to you.
DSL Modem: DSL stands for Digital Subscriber Line. A DSL modem uses
your existing phone lines to transmit data at high speeds.
Ethernet: A kind of standard of computer networks. Ethernet networks are
connected by special cables and hubs, and transfers data at up to 10/100
million bits per second (Mbps).
Idle Timeout: Idle timeout is designed so that after no traffic has been
transferred to the Internet for a pre-configured amount of time, the connection
will be disconnected automatically.
IP Address and Network (Subnet) Mask: IP stands for Internet Protocol. An
IP address consists four sets of numbers separated by periods, which
identifies a single, unique Internet computer host in an IP network. Example:
192.168.2.1. It consists of 2 portions: the IP network address, and the host
identifier.
The IP address is a 32-bit binary pattern, which can be represented as four
cascaded decimal numbers separated by “.”: aaa.aaa.aaa.aaa, where each
“aaa” can be anything from 000 to 255, or as four cascaded binary numbers
separated by “.”: bbbbbbbb.bbbbbbbb.bbbbbbbb.bbbbbbbb, where each “b”
can either be 0 or 1.
A network mask is also a 32-bit binary pattern, and consists of consecutive
leading
1’s followed by consecutive trailing 0’s, such as
133
11111111.11111111.11111111.00000000. Therefore sometimes a network
mask can also be described simply as “x” number of leading 1’s.
When both are represented side by side in their binary forms, all bits in the IP
address that correspond to 1’s in the network mask become part of the IP
network address, and the remaining bits correspond to the host ID.
For example, if the IP address for a device is, in its binary form,
11011001.10110000.10010000.00000111, and if its network mask is,
11111111.11111111.11110000.00000000
It means the device’s network address is
11011001.10110000.10010000.00000000, and its host ID is,
00000000.00000000.00000000.00000111. This is a convenient and efficient
method for routers to route IP packets to their destination.
ISP Gateway Address: (see ISP listed below for explanations). The ISP
Gateway Address is an IP address for the Internet router located at the ISP's
office.
ISP: Internet Service Provider. An ISP is a business that provides connectivity
to the Internet for individuals and other businesses or organizations.
LAN: Local Area Network. A LAN is a group of computers and devices
connected together in a relatively small area (such as a house or an office).
Your home network is considered as a LAN.
MAC Address: MAC stands for Media Access Control. A MAC address is the
hardware address of a device connected to a network. The MAC address is a
unique identifier for a device with an Ethernet interface. It comprises two parts:
3 bytes of data that corresponds to the Manufacturer ID (which is unique for
each manufacturer), plus 3 bytes that are often used as the product’s serial
number.
NAT: Network Address Translation. This process allows all of the computers
on your home network to use one IP address. Using the broadband router’s
NAT capability, you can access the Internet from any computer on your home
network without having to purchase more IP addresses from your ISP.
Port: Network Clients (LAN PC) uses port numbers to identify one network
application/protocol from another. Below is a list of common applications and
protocol/port numbers:
Application
Telnet
Protocol
TCP

PPPoE: Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet. Point-to-Point Protocol is a
secure data transmission method originally created for dial-up connections;
PPPoE is for Ethernet connections. PPPoE relies on two widely accepted
standards, Ethernet and the Point-to-Point Protocol. It is a communications
protocol for transmitting information over Ethernet between different
manufacturers
Protocol: A protocol is a set of rules for interaction agreed between multiple
parties so that when they communication with each other based on such a
protocol, the interpretation of their behavior is well defined and can be made
objectively, without confusion or misunderstanding.
Router: A router is an intelligent network device that forwards packets
between different networks based on network layer address information such
as IP addresses.
Subnet Mask: A subnet mask, which may be a part of the TCP/IP information
provided by your ISP, is a set of four numbers (e.g. 255.255.255.0) configured
like an IP address. It is used to create IP address numbers used only within a
particular network (as opposed to valid IP address numbers recognized by the
Internet, which must be assigned by InterNIC).
TCP/IP, UDP: Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and
Unreliable Datagram Protocol (UDP). TCP/IP is the standard protocol for data
transmission over the Internet. Both TCP and UDP are transport layer protocol.
TCP performs proper error detection and error recovery, and thus is reliable.
UDP on the other hand is not reliable. They both run on top of the IP (Internet
Protocol), a network layer protocol.
WAN: Stands for Wide Area Network. A network that connects computers
located in geographically separated areas (e.g. different buildings, cities,
135
countries). The Internet is a wide area network, too.
Web-based management Graphical User Interface (GUI): Many devices
support graphical user interface that is based on the web browser. This means
the user can use their familiar web browser (ex. Netscape or Microsoft Internet
Explorer) to control/configure or monitor the device being managed.
