Point mode”, “AP Bridge-Point to Multi-Point mode” or “AP Bridge-WDS
mode”. You have to enter the MAC addresses of the other access points
Advanced Settings
This tab allows you to set the advanced wireless options. The options included
are Authentication Type, Fragment Threshold, RTS Threshold, Beacon
Interval, and Preamble Type. You should not change these parameters unless
you know what effect the changes will have on the router.
Authentication Type There are two authentication types: "Open System"
and "Shared Key". When you select "Open System", wireless stations can
associate with this wireless router without WEP encryption. When you
select "Shared Key", you should also setup a WEP key in the "Encryption"
page. After this has been done, make sure the wireless clients that you
want to connect to the device are also setup with the same encryption
Fragment Threshold "Fragment Threshold" specifies the maximum size
of a packet during the fragmentation of data to be transmitted. If you set
this value too low, it will result in bad performance.
RTS Threshold When the packet size is smaller then the RTS threshold,
the wireless router will not use the RTS/CTS mechanism to send this
Beacon Interval is the interval of time that this wireless router
broadcasts a beacon. A Beacon is used to synchronize the wireless
Data Rate The “Data Rate” is the rate that this access point uses to
transmit data packets. The access point will use the highest possible
selected transmission rate to transmit the data packets.
N Data Rate The “Data Rate” is the rate that this access point uses to
transmit data packets for N compliant wireless nodes. Highest to lowest
data rate can be fixed.
Channel Bandwidth is the range of frequencies that will be used.
Preamble Type The “Long Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN
compatibility while the “Short Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN
Broadcast ESSID If you enabled “Broadcast ESSID”, every wireless
station located within the coverage of this access point can discover this
access point easily. If you are building a public wireless network, enabling
this feature is recommended. Disabling “Broadcast ESSID” can provide
better security.
CTS Protection: 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 a lot of frame-network
that is transmitted.
TX Power can be set to a bare minimum or maximum power.
WMM WiFi Multi Media if enabled supports QoS for experiencing better
audio, video and voice in applications.
This Access Point provides complete wireless LAN security functions, included
are WEP, IEEE 802.11x, IEEE 802.11x with WEP, WPA with pre-shared key
and WPA with RADIUS. With these security functions, you can prevent your
wireless LAN from illegal access. Please make sure your wireless stations use
the same security function, and are setup with the same security key.
When you choose to disable encryption, it is very insecure to operate WL303/WL-306/WL-312.
Enable 802.1x Auth
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
When you select 64-bit or 128-bit WEP key, you have to enter WEP keys to
encrypt data. You can generate the key by yourself and enter it. You can
enter four WEP keys and select one of them as a default key. Then the router
can receive any packets encrypted by one of the four keys.
Key Length You can select the WEP key length for encryption, 64-bit or 128bit. The larger the key will be the higher level of security is used, but the
throughput will be lower.
Key Format You may select ASCII Characters (alphanumeric format) or
Hexadecimal Digits (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) to be the WEP Key.
Key1 - Key4 The WEP keys are used to encrypt data transmitted in the
wireless network. Use the following rules to setup a WEP key on the device.
64-bit WEP: input 10-digits Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or
5-digit ASCII character as the encryption keys. 128-bit WEP: input 26-digit
Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or 13-digit ASCII characters
as the encryption keys.
Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations.
You can now configure other sections by choosing Continue, or choose Apply
to apply the settings and reboot the device.
WPA Pre-shared Key
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an advanced security standard. You can use
a pre-shared key to authenticate wireless stations and encrypt data during
communication. It uses TKIP or CCMP (AES) to change the encryption key
frequently. So the encryption key is not easy to be cracked by hackers. This is
the best security available.
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an advanced security standard. You can use
an external RADIUS server to authenticate wireless stations and provide the

Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is the simplest way to establish a connection
between the wireless clients and the wireless router. You don’t have to select
the encryption mode and fill in a long encryption passphrase every time when
you try to setup a wireless connection. You only need to press a button on
both wireless client and wireless router, and WPS will do the rest for you.
The wireless router supports two types of WPS: WPS via Push Button and
WPS via PIN code. If you want to use the Push Button, you have to push a
specific button on the wireless client or in the utility of the wireless client to
start the WPS mode, and switch the wireless router to WPS mode. You can
simply push the WPS button of the wireless router, or click the ‘Start to
Process’ button in the web configuration interface. If you want to use the PIN
code, you have to know the PIN code of the wireless client and switch it to
WPS mode, then fill-in the PIN code of the wireless client through the web
configuration interface of the wireless router.
WPS Check the box to enable WPS function and uncheck it to disable the
WPS function.
WPS Current Status If the wireless security (encryption) function of this
wireless router is properly set, you’ll see a ‘Configured’ message here.

12 Firewall Settings
The Broadband router provides extensive firewall protection by restricting
connection parameters, thus limiting the risk of hacker attacks, and defending
against a wide array of common Internet attacks. However, for applications that
require unrestricted access to the Internet, you can configure a specific
client/server as a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).
Note: To enable the Firewall settings select Enable and click Apply
If you have a client PC that cannot run an Internet application (e.g. Games)
properly from behind the NAT firewall, then you can open up the firewall
restrictions to unrestricted two-way Internet access by defining a DMZ Host.
The DMZ function allows you to re-direct all packets going to your WAN port
IP address to a particular IP address in your LAN. The difference between the
virtual server and the DMZ function is that the virtual server re-directs a
particular service/Internet application (e.g. FTP, websites) to a particular LAN
client/server, whereas DMZ re-directs all packets (regardless of services)
going to your WAN
IP address to a particular LAN client/server.
Enable DMZ Enable/disable DMZ

Set Time Zone Select the time zone of the country you are currently in. The
router will set its time based on your selection.
Time Server Address You can set an NTP server address.
Enable Daylight Savings The router can also take Daylight savings into
account. If you wish to use this function, you must check/tick the enable box
to enable your daylight saving configuration (below).
Start Daylight Savings Time Select the period in which you wish to start
daylight Savings Time
End Daylight Savings Time Select the period in which you wish to end
daylight Savings Time
Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations
Remote Management
The remote management function allows you to designate a host in the
Internet the ability to configure the Broadband router from a remote site.
Enter the designated host IP Address in the Host IP Address field.
Host Address This is the IP address of the host in the Internet that will have
management/configuration access to the Broadband router from a remote
site. If the Host Address is left this means anyone can access the
router’s web-based configuration from a remote location, providing they know
the password.
Port The port number of the remote management web interface.
Enabled Select “Enabled” to enable the remote management function.
Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations.
Firmware Upgrade
This page allows you to upgrade the router’s firmware.
Firmware Upgrade This tool allows you to upgrade the Broadband router’s
system firmware. To upgrade the firmware of your Broadband router, you
need to download the firmware file to your local hard disk, and enter that file
name and path in the appropriate field on this page. You can also use the
Browse button to find the firmware file on your PC.
Once you’ve selected the new firmware file, click <Apply> at the bottom of
the screen to start the upgrade process
Backup Settings
The Backup screen allows you to save (Backup) the router’s current
configuration settings. When you save the configuration setting (Backup) you
can re-load the saved configuration into the router through the Restore
selection. If extreme problems occur you can use the Restore to Factory
Defaults selection, this will set all configurations to its original default settings
(e.g. when you first purchased the router).
Use the "Backup" tool to save the Broadband router current configuration to a
file named "config.bin" on your PC. You can then use the "Restore" tool to
restore the saved configuration to the Broadband router. Alternatively, you
can use the "Restore to Factory Defaults" tool to force the Broadband router
to perform a power reset and restore the original factory settings.
You can reset the router’s system should any problem exist. The reset
function essentially re-boots your router’s system.
DDNS allows you to map the static domain name to a dynamic IP address.
You must get an account, password and your static domain name from the
DDNS service providers. This router supports DynDNS, TZO and other
common DDNS service providers.
Enable/Disable Enable/Disable the DDNS function of this router
Provider Select a DDNS service provider
Domain name Fill in your static domain name that uses DDNS
Account/E-mail The account that your DDNS service provider assigned to
Password/Key The password you set for the DDNS service account above
Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations.

Version 2, June 1991 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 59 Temple Place
- Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307, USA Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute
verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it.
By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and
change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public
License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program
whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered
by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public
Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free
software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if
you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that
you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that
forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions
translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you
modify it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee,
you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too,
receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
rights. We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this
license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software. Also, for
each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that
there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and
passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any
problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations. Finally, any
free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that
redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed
for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying,
distribution and modification follow.
This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the
copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License.
The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or
translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the
term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying,
distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act
of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its
contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running
the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it, in
any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to
this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a
copy of this License along with the Program. You may charge a fee for the physical act of
transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work
based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of
Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions: a) You must cause the
modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any
change. b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part
contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no
charge to all third parties under the terms of this License. c) If the modified program normally
reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an
appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you
provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and
telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is
interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program
is not required to print an announcement.) These requirements apply to the modified work as a
whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be
reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its
terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when
you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the
distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other
licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote
it. Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written
entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative
or collective works based on the Program. In addition, mere aggregation of another work not
based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object
code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do
one of the following: a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
customarily used for software interchange; or, b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at
least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically
performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source
code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily
used for software interchange; or, c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the
offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for
noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable
form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.) The source code for a work means
the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete
source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface
definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable.
However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is
normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler,
kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that
component itself accompanies the executable. If distribution of executable or object code is
made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to
copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even
though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided
under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program
is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who
have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses
terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else
grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions
are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing
the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License
to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or
works based on it.
Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient
automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the
Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on
the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing
compliance by third parties to this License.
If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other
reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order,
agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you
from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your
obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royaltyfree redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through
you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely
from distribution of the Program. If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable
under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and the
section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances. It is not the purpose of this
section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity
of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free
software distribution system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many people
have made generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that
system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to
decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee
cannot impose that choice. This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents
or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this
License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so
that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this
License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public
License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but
may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns. Each version is given a distinguishing
version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies to it
and "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that
version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does
not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the
Free Software Foundation.
If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution
conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is
copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we
sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving
the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of
software generally.
