Introduction to GW-DS300N
Thank you for purchasing IEEE802.11n Wireless PCIBus
Adapter – GW-DS300N. GW-DS300N is backward compatible with
802.11b and 802.11g standards. It uses the powerful MIMO technology
which has further coverage, less dead spots and higher throughput. When
GW-DS300N is connecting to the standard 802.11b or 802.11g APs or
routers, it can perform much better than other standard stations. It also
supports WMM, WMM-PS and WMM-SA (IEEE802.11e QoS standard).
In addition, GW-DS300N supports higher data throughput than the
IEEE802.11g standard (up to 300Mbps). It can compress the data and
decrease the waiting time of sending the data to the next routers or APs, so
it increases the data transmission rate. This function is called Turbo Mode.
When GW-DS300N WLAN adapter connect to the APs or routers by using
this particular function, your wireless network will be more effective.
For the security of WLAN, GW-DS300N supports 64/128-bit WEP data
encryption which protects your wireless network from eavesdropping. It
also supports WPA which combines IEEE802.1x and TKIP technologies.
Client users are required to authorize before accessing to APs or routers,
and the data transmitted on the network is encrypted and decrypted by a
dynamically changed secret key. Besides, GW-DS300N supports WPA2
function which provides a stronger encryption through AES which is the
most advanced WLAN solution for IEEE802.11i.
The best thing is that GW-DS300N has an innovative built-in WPS (Wi-Fi
Protected Setup) function which can build a connection between an AP
and synchronize the encryption settings simply through a click on a button.
GW-DS300N is cost effective and with many versatile features. It must be
the best solution for you to build your wireless network.

Profile Name
You can give each AP a different name to define them.
SSID
Scroll down the list to choose a detected AP as an
SSID.
PSM
CAM (Constantly Awake Mode) – Choose this mode
and GW-DS300N will continuously awake and
operate. If your computer is plugging into the socket
directly instead of using batteries, the PSM mode
will automatically switch to CAM mode.
PSM (Power Saving Mode) – When GW-DS300N
often idles, you can choose PSM mode. This mode
only takes effect under“Infrastructure” network
type.
Network Type
Infrastructure– An 802.11 networking framework
in which devices communicate with each other
by first going through and Access Point (AP).
In infrastructure mode, wireless devices can
communicate with each other or can communicate
with a wired network. If enabling this mode, the
PSM mode will take effect and the Preamble
function will be disabled.
Ad-hoc–An 802.11 networking framework in which
devices or stations communicate directly with each
other, without the use of an Access Point (AP).
Ad-hoc mode is useful for establishing a network
where wireless infrastructure does not exist or where
services are not required. If choose this mode, you
22
GW-DS300N
can select a channel for GW-DS300N. If enabling
this mode, the PSM mode will NOT take effect and
2
the Preamble function will be enabled.
TX Power
Choose the TX (transmission) Power according to
the real environment. If you want to lower the
transmit power of the adapter for saving the
power of the system, you can select the lower
percentages from the list. The lower power
will cause the lower signal strength and the
Preamble
RTS Threshold
coverage range. The default setting is “Auto”.
The preamble defines the length of the CRC (cyclic
redundancy check) block when communicating
among the wireless networks. There are two types
of preamble: Auto and Long Preamble. Intensive
network traffic areas should use the short preamble
type.
Here it defines the minimum packet size required for
RTS (Request to Send). Select a value within a range
of 0 to 2347 bytes. Normally, if there are no hiding
nodes problems, the values no need to be altered.
Fragment Threshold The value defines the maximum size of packets; any
packet size larger than the value will be fragmented.
If you have decreased this value and experience
higher packet error rates, you can increase the value
again, but it will likely decrease the overall network
performance. Select a value within the range of 256
to 2346 bytes. The default value is 2346.

2.5 Authentication and Security
Click“Authentication and Security”tab on the“Add Profile”page and
you can start configuring authentication. Please refer to the following
instructions.
WEP is short for Wired Equivalent Privacy, a security protocol for
WLANs defined in the 802.11b standard. WEP is designed to provide
the same level of security as that of a wired LAN. WEP aims to provide
security by encrypting data over radio waves so that it is protected as it
transmitted from one end point to another.
WPA is short for Wi-Fi Protected Access, a Wi-Fi standard that was
designed to improve upon the security features of WEP. The technology
is designed to work with existing Wi-Fi products that have been enabled
with WEP. It also provides strong data protection by using encryption
as well as strong access controls and user authentication. WPA utilizes
128-bit encryption keys and dynamic session keys to ensure your wireless
network's privacy and enterprise security.
WPA-PSK is short for Wi-Fi Protected Access-Pre-Shared Key. WPAPSK is basically an authentication mechanism in which users provide
some form of credentials to verify that they should be allowed access to a
network. This requires a single password entered into each WLAN node
(Access Points, Wireless Routers, client adapters, bridges). As long as the
passwords match, a client will be granted access to a WLAN. Encryption
mechanisms used for WPA and WPA-PSK are the same. The only
difference between the two is in WPA-PSK, authentication is reduced to a
simple common password, instead of user-specific credentials.
26
GW-DS300N
WPA2 is short for Wi-FI Protected Access 2, the follow on security
method to WPA for wireless networks that provides stronger data
2
protection and network access control. It provides enterprise and consumer
Wi-Fi users with a high level of assurance that only authorized users can
access their wireless networks. There are two versions of WPA2: WPA2Enterprise, and WPA2-Personal. WPA2-Enterprise verifies network users
through a server. WPA2-Personal protects unauthorized network access
by utilizing a set-up password. For environments without a Remote
Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) infrastructure such as
small office/home office (SOHO) networks, WPA2-Personal supports the
use of a pre-shared key (PSK).
WPA2-PSK is short for Wi-Fi Protected Access 2-Pre-Shared Key. WPA2Personal supports PSK(pre-shared key). WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK are
special modes designed for small office/home office users who do not have
access to the network authentication servers.
If you want to use WPA as the authentication of GW-DS300N, you can
refer to the following instructions to do the configuration.
27

Authentication and Security
Descriptions
Authentication Type The authentication of GW-DS300N must set the same
as the settings of the destination.
1.There are seven authentication types under
Infrastructure mode:
Open–It does not need authentication when
connecting to the AP.
Shared–Only wireless adapters using a shared key
(WEP Key identified) are allowed to connecting to
the AP.
LEAP–is short for Light Extensible
Authentication Protocol. It is a pre-EAP, Ciscoproprietary protocol, with many of the features of
EAP protocols. Cisco controls the ability of other
vendors to implement this protocol, so it should
be selected for use only when limited vendor
choice for client, access-point, and server products
is not a concern. When you have set up LEAP
authentication, you have to enter the user name and
password of your computer.
WPA–includes WPA, WPA-PSK, WPA2 and
WPA2-PSK. WPA and WPA2 are for enterprise
which requires a RADIUS Server and Certificate
Server for the authentication. WPA-PSK and
WPA2-PSK are special modes designed for small
office/home office users who do not have access to
the network authentication servers.
2.There are three authentication types under Ad-hoc
mode:
Open–It does not need authentication when
connecting to the AP.
28
GW-DS300N
Shared–Only wireless adapters using a shared key
(WEP Key identified) are allowed to connecting to
2
the AP.
WPA NONE–Under this mode, you can only set
encryption and WPA-Preshared Key settings.
Use 802.1x
Encryption
This setting only takes effect when using“Open”,
“Shared”, “WPA”or“WPA2”mode. Click this
button and then click“802.1x Setting”, the“802.1x
Setting”sub-window will pop up.
Under“Open”and“Shared”mode, you can use
“None” and “WEP”encryption types. Under “WPAPSK” and “WPA2-PSK”, you can use “TKIP” and
“AES”.
WEP–Short for Wired Equivalent Privacy, a
security protocol for wireless local area networks
(WLANs) defined in the 802.11b standard. WEP
aims to provide security by encrypting data over
radio waves so that it is protected as it is transmitted
from one end point to another.
AES–Short for Advanced Encryption Standard, a
symmetric 128-bit block data encryption technique.
It works at multiple network layers simultaneously
and has a fixed block size of 128-bits and a key size
of 128, 192, or 256-bits.
TKIP–It is short for Temporal Key Integrity
Protocol. TKIP scrambles the key using a hashing
algorithm and, by adding an integrity-checking
feature, ensures that the keys haven’t been
tampered with.
29
Chapter 2 Basic Installation & Configuration
2
WPA-Preshared Key This setting only takes effect under“WPA-PSK”
or“WPA2-PSK” mode. Besides, the key should be
at least 8 characters and 63 characters at maximum.
This Passphrase (also called a shared secret) that
must be entered in both the wireless access point and
the WPA clients (computers). The WPA pre-shared
key should be a random sequence of either keyboard
characters (upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and
punctuation). You have to enter the same Passphrase
or Hexadecimal key into both your access points and
computers but the length requirement is changed.
The more random your WPA pre-shared key, the
safer it is to use.
WEP Key
Key#1~#4
This setting only takes effect under“Open”or
“Shared”mode. There are four types of WEP key
settings, please set the key depending on the real
environment. According to the type and length, there
are four WEP Key types:
Hexadecimal–Only“A~F,”“a~f,”and“0~9”are
allowed to be set in a WEP key.
ASCII–Numerical values, characters or signs are all
allowed to be arranged into a WEP key. It is more
recognizable for user.
64-bit–Enter 10-digit Hex values or 5-digit ASCII
values as the encryption keys. For example:“
0123456aef”or“Guest.”
128-bit–Enter 26-digit Hex values or 13-digit ASCII
values as the encryption keys. For example:“012345
67890123456789abcdef”or“administrator.”

Authentication Type 1.PEAP–Pronounced“peep”and short for Protected
Extensible Authentication Protocol, a protocol
developed jointly by Microsoft, RSA Security
and Cisco for transmitting authentication data,
including passwords, over 802.11 wireless
networks. And it requires a set of user name and
password in addition. Enter the“User Name”and
“Password”and also select a certificate from the
“Certificate”list. To get the certificate and the
personal user name and password, please contact
with your administrator.
2.TLSƟSmart Card–Short for Transport Layer
Security, a protocol that guarantees privacy and
data integrity between client/server applications
communicating over the Internet.
3.TTLS–Short for Tunneled Transport Layer
Security, and is an advanced TLS protocol.
4.Md5-Challenge–It is the easiest EAP Type. It
requires the wireless station to enter a set of user
name and password as the identity to RADIUS
Server. (Only“Open”and“Shared”encryption
mode can use this function.)

GW-DS300N
Session Resumption After reconnecting the signal which broke up, you
can set the session resumption to reduce the
2
transferring packet to accelerate the speed. There
are five types of session resumption:“Disable”,
“Reauthentication”, “Roaming”, “SameSsid”and“
Always”.
ID
These are the Identity and Password for passing
through the server.
Use Client certificate A client certificate is required for TLS, and is
optional for TTLS and PEAP. This forces a client
certificate to be selected from the appropriate
Windows Certificate Store and made available to the
RADIUS server for certification.
Tunneled
Authentication
1.ProtocolĈWhen the authentication type is PEAP
or TTLS, select a protocol to be used to build the
encrypted tunnel. Under PEAP authentication, you
can choose“EAP-MSCHAP v2”, “EAP-TLS/Smart
Card”, and“Generic Token Card”. Under TTLS
authentication, there are“CHAP”, “MS-CHAP”,
“MS-CHAP-V2”, “PAP”and “EAP-MD5”.
2.IdentityĈThis is the protected user EAP
Identity used for authentication. The identity
specified may contain up to 63 ASCII characters,
is case sensitive and takes the form of a Network
Access Identifier, consisting of <name of the
user>@<user’s home realm>. The user’s home
realm is optional and indicates the routing domain.
33
Chapter 2 Basic Installation & Configuration
3.PasswordĈThe password used for
authentication. It may contain up to 63 ASCII
2
characters and is case sensitive.
CA Server
Use certificate chain When the EAP authentication type such as TLS,
TTLS or PEAP is selected and required a
certification to tell the client what server credentials
to accept from the authentication server in order to
verify the server, you have to enable this function.
Certificate issuer
Choose the server from the list to issue the certificate.
If“Any Trusted CA”is selected, any CA included in
the list (provided by the Microsoft Certificate Store)
is permitted.
Allow intermediate
certificate
A server designates an issuer as a trusted root
authority by placing the issuer's self-signed
certificate, which contains the issuer's public
key, into the trusted root certification authority
certificate store of the host computer. Intermediate or
subordinate certification authorities are trusted only
if they have a valid certification path from a trusted
root certification authority.
Server name
Enter the authentication server name.
Server name must
match exactly
When selected, the server name must match exactly
the server name found on the certificate.
34
GW-DS300N
Server name must When selected, the server name field identifies a
end in specified name domain. The certificate must use a server name
belonging to this domain or to one of its sub-domains
(e.g. zeelans.com, where the server is blueberry.
zeelans.com) but it may be any name used in the
certificate name field.

roaming.
1.LEAP turn on CCKMĈDuring normal operation,
LEAP-enabled client devices mutually authenticate
with a new access point by performing a
complete LEAP authentication, including
communication with the main RADIUS server.
When you configure your wireless LAN for fast
re-association, however, LEAP-enabled client
devices roam from one access point to another
without involving the main server. Using Cisco
Centralized Key Management (CCKM), an access
point configured to provide Wireless Domain
Services (WDS) takes the place of the RADIUS
server and authenticates the client so quickly that
there is no perceptible delay in voice or other timesensitive applications.
