unit’s serial number as the password. (e.g. 0024C76258 ) and click on the “login” button.
Configuring Wireless Settings
Radio Mode
Click on “Wireless Settings”
This allows you to select whether the radio is in 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11a mode. Not all routers support all modes, so
only the supported modes for your in-car router are shown.
Extended Service Set ID. The ESSID is the identifying name of a wireless network - strictly it is the identifying name of a
wireless access point. It allows one wireless network to be clearly distinguishable from another. The default ESSID is autonetXXXX, where XXXX is the last 4 digits of the in-car router’s serial number. It is recommended that you keep this ESSID in order
to distinguish your router from other routers that may be in the area.
Direct communication between an 802.11 Radio card and an access point occurs over a common channel frequency. The
FCC allows channels 1 through 11 within the U.S. An important concept to note regarding channel assignments is that the
channel actually represents the center frequency that the transceiver within the radio and access point uses (e.g., 2.412 GHz
for channel 1 and 2.417 GHz for channel 2). There is only 5 MHz separation between the center frequencies, and an 802.11b
signal occupies approximately 30 MHz of the frequency spectrum. The signal falls within about 15 MHz of each side of the
center frequency. As a result, an 802.11b signal overlaps with several adjacent channel frequencies. This leaves you with only
three channels (channels 1, 6, and 11 for the U.S.) That you can use without causing interference between access points.
WEP key
The WEP key is not shown if it is set. You do not have to set it, if you want it to remain the same. To set the current encryption
key, just enter the key in hex digits as XXXXXXXXXX. The key must be 10 hex digits, (e.G. 1234567890 ) You can also enter
the key as an ASCII string by using the s: prefix. The ASCII string must be five characters, (e.g. s:smile ). To disable WEP, enter
“off” as the WEP key.
Configuring Wireless Security Settings
Bit rate
Click on “Wireless Security”
This allows you to set the bit rate in Mbs. The bit rate is the speed at which bits are transmitted over the medium. The user
speed of the link is lower due to medium sharing and various overhead. Select a value to lock the card to a particular bit
rate. If you specify auto, the driver will use all bit rates to find an optimum rate.
RTS threshold
RTS/CTS adds a handshake before each packet transmission to make sure that the channel is clear. This adds overhead, but
Increases performance in case of hidden nodes or a large number of active nodes. This parameter sets the size of the smallest
packet for which the node sends rts; a value equal to the maximum packet size disables the mechanism. You may also set this
parameter to off.
Fragmentation threshold
Fragmentation allows to split an IP packet in a burst of smaller fragments transmitted on the medium. In most cases this adds
overhead, but in a very noisy environment this reduces the error penalty and allow packets to get through interference bursts.
This parameter sets the maximum fragment size. You may also set this to off to disable the mechanism.
This allows you to set the transmit power of the radio. Setting a lower value limits the range of the radio and reduces
Interference with other access points.
The Wireless Security Settings allow you to control which wireless-equipped devices may communicate with the router
depending on their MAC addresses. By default these MAC filters are disabled. If you turn MAC filters on, you should be
sure and include the mMAC address of the device that you are using to communicate with. Otherwise, the machine that
you’re using will lose its connection to the in-car router.
This page will show you all of the wireless devices currently attached to the in-car router.
To enable MAC filters, change the MAC filters option to “on” and then check the “Allowed” box next to the MAC addresses
that you wish to allow to join the network.
If you would like to have devices connect that are not currently attached to the in-car router you may add them in the box.
You can add multiple devices by separating them with a space.
Select “commit changes” when you are finished.
Configuring Login Screen
Changing the password on your in-car router
Click on “login control”
Click on “Password”
Normally a device that connects to the Autonet Mobile network must first click through the login screen that comes up on
your web browser. However, there are some devices that do not have a web browser (cameras, music players, etc.) So
we’ve created a method for disabling the login page for those devices.
This page will show you all of the wireless devices currently attached to the in-car router.
To bypass the login screen for a device, check the box under “no login required” next to the MAC address of that device.
Click on the user name “autonet”
Enter a new password and click on “Save Changes”
If you would like to add devices that are not currently attached to the in-car router, then you may add them in the box.
You can add multiple devices by separating them with a space.
Select “Commit Changes” when you are finished.
If you ever forget your password, please contact the Autonet Mobile customer service center to have it reset.
