1 Product Overview
Supported Features
The WS319 300Mbps Wireless Router (WS319 for short) is a high-speed wireless router
designed for home and small office use. This chapter describes the features supported by the
WS319.
 Ethernet provides rugged stability, and with the WPS button, zero configuration is required
for connections to multiple devices.
 Network range allows any device in a home to be connected with a transmission rate of up to
300Mbps.
 A powerful firewall is provided with a flexible network configuration and quality of service
(QoS) strategy, enabling different home devices to enjoy high-speed and high-quality
broadband services.
Smart Wi-Fi coverage
When the WS319 is connected to Huawei wireless routers and repeaters that support the smart
Wi-Fi coverage feature, wireless parameters of these devices are automatically synchronized,
which simplifies user configuration. What's more, smart Wi-Fi coverage helps wireless devices
automatically detect and connect to the wireless router or repeater with the best signal
reception.
Easy configuration and management
Access the web management page from your computer, smartphone, or tablet to easily
configure WS319. You can also install the HUAWEI RuMate app on your smartphone or tablet to
manage your router.
High-Speed Ethernet Connectivity
The WS319 provides WAN ports for Ethernet-enabled devices to access the Internet at high
speeds.
Routing
The WS319 supports routing. It can obtain an IP address through PPP dial-up or Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP), which provides simultaneous access for multiple devices.
WLAN
The WS319 supports multiple WLAN protocols, including 802.11b/g/n (2.4 GHz). Adopting
802.11n multiple-input multiple-output antennas (MIMO) technology, the WS319 delivers a
wireless transmission rate of up to 300Mbps with its dual antennas. In addition, the WS319
supports multiple wireless encryption modes to provide a secure, reliable, and high-speed WLAN.
Bandwidth Control
The WS319 supports bandwidth control and allocates bandwidth to different computers within
your home based on Internet access requirements. Your family can then access the Internet, play
online games, and watch videos without interfering with each other.
WDS Wireless Bridging
The wireless distribution system (WDS) function in wireless bridging mode enables you to set up
wireless connections between wireless routers to implement large-scale WLAN coverage.
5
Firewall
The powerful built-in firewall effectively protects against viruses and malicious attacks.
ARP Attack Protection
You can bundle an IP address and MAC address bi-directionally, which effectively protects your
LAN from Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) attacks.
Parental Controls
Parents can control their children's computer usage by placing time limits on usage duration or
forbidding access to certain websites.
Energy-saving
Automatic switch to energy-saving state when no service is detected, Wi-Fi function enabled
and disabled as scheduled.
Ports and Buttons
No.

6 WLAN Configuration
Expanding WLAN Coverage
To expand WLAN coverage, use the wireless distribution system (WDS) to set up a wireless
connection between two WS319 devices.
For example, if your house is too large to be fully covered by the WLAN provided by one WS319
device, add another WS319 device and set up a wireless connection between these two devices
using the WDS. The WLAN coverage is then expanded.
While setting up the wireless connection between the two WS319 devices, configure the devices
to use the same radio channel, WLAN name, encryption method, and encryption key.
1. Find and record the wireless MAC addresses of the two WS319.
a. Log in to the web management page.
b. Choose Home Network tab.
c. In the navigation tree, choose WDS Bridge.
d. Select 2.4GHz frequency band configuration page.
e. Under WLAN MAC Address, find a character string that is similar to EC:23:3D:E0:5E:B4.
This value is the wireless MAC address of the WS319.
2. Set the WLAN parameters of the two WS319.
a. Log in to the web management page.
b. Choose Home Network tab.
c. In the navigation tree, choose WLAN Settings.
d. Select WLAN Encryption configuration page. Set the same value for the SSID, WPA
encryption mode and WPA pre-shared key about the two WS319.
33
e. Select Advanced Settings configuration page. Set the same Channel.
Please select the same non-adaptive channel for Channel.
3. Configure the WDS function of the two WS319.
a. Log in to the web management page.
b. Choose Home Network tab.
c. In the navigation tree, choose WDS Bridge.
d. Select 2.4G frequency band configuration page.
e. Set Enable to Enable.
f. In Remote bridge MAC address, enter the wireless MAC address of other WS319.
g. Click Save.
34
You can also click Scan, then the wireless MAC address in the list of scanned wireless LAN, and
then add it.
Turning On Smart Coverage
Your WS319 supports smart coverage. When you have multiple Huawei devices that support
smart coverage in your home, such as Huawei wireless routers or the wireless range extenders,
you can enable the smart coverage function on all these devices to enable them to synchronize
their wireless settings and form one large wireless network. This means your devices will
automatically connect to the strongest wireless network whether you're in the living room, study,
or bedroom -- the full benefits of a smart connected home.
1. Log in to the web management page.
2. Choose Home Network tab.
3. In the navigation tree, choose WLAN Settings.

configure the relevant parameters in these network environments and back up them carefully.
If you want to change the network environment later, you can import the configuration file
directly to restore the default configuration without any configuration again.
Restoring Default Settings
Using the Configuration Tool
If the WS319 parameter settings were configured incorrectly, log in to the web management
page to reload the default configuration file and restore the WS319 to its default settings.
