2 M5000 Multi-Function Instruction Guide
2.1 Access Point
In the Access Point Mode with WDS Function, M5000 function likes a central connection for any
stations or clients that support IEEE 802.11a network. Stations and Client must configure the same
SSID and Security Password to associate within the range. M5000 supports 4 different SSIDs to
separate different clients at the same time.
2.2 Access Point with WDS Function
M5000 also supports WDS function in Access Point Mode without losing AP’s capabilities. Configure
others Access Point’s Wireless MAC Address in both Access Point devices to enlarge the wireless area
by enabling WDS Link Settings. WDS function can support up to 8 different AP’s MAC addresses.
Auction: Not every Access Point device has support WDS in Access Point Mode. It is recommended
using M5000 if you would like to use this service.

wirelessly and surf internet whenever you want. Using Site Survey to scan all the Access Point within
the range and configure its SSID and Security Password to associate with it. Connect you station to
the LAN port of the M5000 via Ethernet.
2.4 WDS Bridge
In the WDS Bridge Mode, the M5000 can wirelessly connect different LANs by just simply configure
each other’s MAC Address and Security Settings. This mode is used when two wired LANs locate in
small distance and want to communicate each other. The best solution is using M5000 wirelessly
connect two wired LANs. WDS Bridge Mode can establish 16 WDS links. The connection diagram is
like a Star.
Auction: WDS Bridge Mode is not function like Access Point. APs linked by WDS are using the same
frequency channel, more APs connected together may lower throughput. Please be aware to avoid
loop connection, otherwise you may enable Spanning Tree Function.
9
2.5 Client Router
In the Client Router Mode, the M5000 has DHCP Server build inside that allows many LANs
automatically generate an IP address to share the same Internet. Connect an AP/WISP Wirelessly and
connect to LANs via wired. Client Router Mode is act completely opposite to the AP Router Mode.
2.6 Mesh
In the Mesh Mode, the M5000 is act like an independent node and each node is allowed connecting
to another network. If one node is lost, the continuous connection through around the broken or
blocked by hopping from node to node until the destination is reached. Each node is connected to
every other node. Mesh network is similarly to the ad hoc network.
