Installing the 3G Wireless-N Router
Package Contents
The Zoom 3G Wireless-N Router package contains the Zoom 3G Wireless-N Router,
an antenna, an RJ-45 Ethernet cable, a 5V 2.0A Power adapter, a stand, this Quick
Start installation manual, and a CD that contains additional documentation and
warranty information. If anything is missing or damaged, please contact Zoom
Customer Support or your retailer or distributor.
System Requirements
The Zoom 3G Wireless-N Router works with any compatible 3G USB modem with
Internet service. If you'd like an up-to-date list of modems known to be compatible
with the router, please go to www.zoom.com/3Grouter/comp. If you are aware of a 3G
modem that is incompatible with the router, please let us know by sending email to
[email protected]
The router is set up for use with computers, mobile phones, game stations, and other
devices with wireless 802.11n, 802.11g, or 802.11b capability. The router comes set
up for wireless with no security. If you need to set up the router for wireless security or
for some other reason, you'll need to do the setup with a computer that has an
available Ethernet port and a web browser.
Using Your Router with a 3G Modem

Attach the antenna by lining it up with the receptacle on the router's back panel and
rotating it in a clockwise direction. Once attached, you can move the antenna to optimize
wireless LAN signal strength. Putting the antenna in a vertical position normally gives the
best performance.
Plug your 3G USB modem into the router's USB port on the router's back panel.

Connect the power adapter to the receptor on the router's back panel and plug the
other end of the power adapter into a wall outlet or power strip.
The WiFi and 3G LEDs on the router's front panel turn on.
A computer, mobile phone, game station, or other device with wireless 802.11n, g, or b
capability can access the Internet wirelessly through the 3G router. To make the
wireless connection, you must first locate the wireless network connection setup on
your device, and then select the Zoom network. For example, on Windows computers,
click the wireless connection icon on the Task Bar, click Available Wireless Networks,
select Zoom from the list of available wireless networks, and then make the connection.
The router comes set up for wireless with no security. If you want wireless security, you
need to set up the 3G router and each device for the security that you want. If you’re
experienced with wireless, you can probably do that easily by using the Configuration
Manager, as discussed in Changing the Router's Default Values on page 7.
You can also plug a computer or other device into the router’s LAN port. This is
recommended if you’re changing the router’s default values, and sometimes an
Ethernet connection is more convenient or secure than connecting to the router
wirelessly. To connect a computer via Ethernet, simply plug the supplied Ethernet
cable between the router’s LAN port and your computer’s Ethernet port.

To test the router when 3G is on, connect a device that has a Web browser to the
router using wireless or Ethernet as discussed above. Then check that the device’s
Web browser works. If it doesn’t work, check that the router is on, connected to 3G
service via a 3G modem, and connected to your device’s browser via wireless or
Ethernet. If you still have problems connecting, you should run the Setup Wizard that’s
in the router’s Configuration Manager. See Chapter 3, starting on page 11 for more
information.
Changing the Router's Default Values
Your Zoom 3G Wireless-N Router is preset with default values that meet the needs of
most users. However, you can change these settings by using the router's built-in
Configuration Manager. Here are some reasons why you might want to use the
Configuration Manager:
• You want to change wireless n/g/b settings to, for instance, enable wireless
security.
• You want to connect the router to your ADSL or cable modem. You can do
this while using your 3G modem as a backup Internet connection, or you can
do it without a 3G modem plugged in.
•
•
•
You do not want your 3G connection to be on whenever the 3G modem is
plugged into the router. The default value is Auto Reconnect (always on). You can
change the default value and specify when to begin (and end) a session.
You want to change router settings to, for instance, establish a firewall to
guard against unauthorized access to your network.
You want to back up router settings that you made using the Configuration
Manager.
To use the Configuration Manager, please follow these steps:
1
Connect the supplied Ethernet cable to the Ethernet ports on the router and computer.
2
In the computer's Web browser address bar, type http://192.168.1.1 and then click Enter.
When the USER'S MAIN MENU opens, it displays a Status page that lists the current
values for a variety of settings.
3
On the window's Toolbar, type admin in the System Password field, then click Login.
4
When the ADMINISTRATOR'S MAIN MENU opens, click Wizard or Advanced on the Toolbar.
•
•
Select Wizard if you are unfamiliar with network settings and configuration. The
program will guide you through the process.
Select Advanced if you are a network administrator or experienced setting up
wired and wireless networks and configurations. For Advanced users, the
Configuration Manager offers Basic Settings, Forwarding Rules, Security Settings,
Advanced Settings, or Toolbox) configuration menus. Click a menu to open the
configuration page for those settings, then select an option or enter new
information to change a setting's value.

The Setup Wizard page opens.
Each of the six steps guides you in configuring a specific setting or group of settings.
When you click Next or Back, you move from one step to another.
Step 1. Setup Login Password
To view or change configuration settings, you must enter a password. Your router has
a default password (admin) that was set by the factory and that you used to access the
Configuration Manager initially. If you want to keep the default password, click Next to
skip this step. Otherwise, to safeguard your configuration, particularly if you make
changes, we recommend that you change the login password.
1 On the Setup Login Password page, type the old password in the Old Password field.
2
Type the new password in the New Password field.
3
Type the new password in the Reconfirm field, then click Next.
Note: If you forget the new password, you won't have access to the Configuration
Manager and will need to restore the device to its factory settings, thus losing any
changes you made to your router's configuration. To avoid this problem, we
recommend that you write the new password here and also save it in some other
convenient location.

Wireless and Wireless Security Setup
Your 3G Wireless-N Router's default (factory) settings provide no wireless network
security. If you don't want unauthorized wireless access to your network, we
recommend that you enable wireless network security. To do this, you'll need to
configure the router and each device on your network for the level of security that you
want.
Before setting up wireless security you must decide which method to use.
•
Use Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) when all of your devices support WPS
security. WPS is easy to configure. Please refer to WPS Configuration below
for details.
•
Use Wireless Distribution System (WDS) if you want wireless point-to-point
and point-to-multipoint bridging for deployment of a large area. With WDS,
you can easily extend the range of your wireless network. Please refer to
WDS Configuration on page 30 for details.
•
If you want security without using WPS or WDS, you should probably use
the Setup Wizard as described in Chapter 3.
•
A manual setup option is also available. Please refer to Configuring Wireless
Security Manually on page 27.
WPS Configuration
You can automatically configure WPS security using the router's built-in WPS
configuration program on each client device that is part of your wireless network.
Configuration Methods
WPS offers three configuration methods. Choose the method that is compatible with
the hardware and software options available on your router and client device.
Note: WPS configures one client device at a time. Please repeat the configuration
method for each client on your wireless network that supports WPS security.
Method One
Use this method if your router and client devices have a WPS button. This button can
be either a physical button on the unit or a software button in its application.
1
Press the WPS button on your 3G router and hold it in for seven (7) seconds until the
Wireless LED starts blinking rapidly.

Important! The Registrar (the device configuring the WLAN) goes into the
WPS mode and the Enrollee (the device joining the WLAN) then looks for it.
You should always start the Registrar first. By default your 3G Router is
configured as a Registrar.
2
Click or press the WPS button on the client device.
3
Refer to your client device's documentation for further instructions, if necessary.
Method Two
Use this method if your client device already has a WPS PIN number. The client is the
Enrollee.

WDS Configuration
Wired Distribution System (WDS) provides wireless point-to-point bridging and
point-to-multipoint bridging. WDS lets you build one or more wireless bridges
connecting one network to a second network (“point to point”) or connecting one
network to more than one network (“point to multi-point”). You typically use a wireless
router such as model 4501 at each end of the wireless bridge. That router can
connect to its local area network by means of its Ethernet ports and/or its wireless
capability, and it can connect to the remote network by means of its WDS wireless
bridge capability.
For point-to-multipoint bridging, a single model 4501 can connect one network to
multiple networks, each with its own model 4501.
It’s possible to remove the model 4501 standard antenna and replace it with a
directional antenna so that the router’s wireless signal “points at” a remote router. The
directional antenna should have a Reverse Polarity SMA Plug to easily connect to the
router. If you do this for both routers in a wireless bridge, you can extend the distance
covered by that wireless bridge. However, you should only do this if you obey the
regulations of the country where the wireless bridge is located. Many countries
require you to get regulatory certification for a combination of the wireless router and
the particular antenna you want to use.

can make some of them accessible by enabling Virtual Server mapping.
A virtual server will allow access to your computer on certain ports. A port is like a
channel that is used by applications (such as games) to communicate on. For
example, the directions for the game you want to play over the Internet might tell you
to open port 6000.

Filtering Policies
You can select one of the two filtering policies:
•
Allow all to pass except those that match the specified rules
•
Deny all to pass except those that match the specified rules
Filtering Rules
You can specify eight rules for each direction: inbound or outbound. For each rule,
you can define the following:
• Source IP address
• Destination IP address
• Destination Port
• Use Rule#
For the Source or Destination IP address, you can define a single IP address (4.3.2.1).
An empty field implies any IP address.
For Destination Port, you can define a single port (80) or a range of ports (1000-1999).
No prefix indicates both TCP and UDP are defined. Leaving this empty implies that all
port addresses apply.
Each Rule can be enabled or disabled individually.
You can use packet filters with scheduling rules for more access control flexibility.
The Domain Filters Page
You can use the Domain Filters page to enable or deny user access to specified URLs.

The URL Blocking Page
You can use the URL Blocking page to block LAN computers from connecting to
pre-defined Web sites. The major difference between Domain Filtering and URL
Blocking is that Domain Filtering requires the user to input a suffix whereas URL
Blocking requires the user to input a keyword only. In other words, Domain Filtering
can block a specific web site, whereas URL Blocking can block hundreds of web sites
by specifying a keyword.
