Typical Management Scenario
This section describes the typical management of JetWave 2450v2.
By default, it is set to thin AP
mode (managed AP) which allows it to be managed by the JetWave 2450v2 in AC mode.
When a thin AP mode joins a wired network, it will start to look for a JetWave 2450v2 in AC mode.
If
the thin AP founds the AP controller on the network, it will send the registration request to the AP
controller.
Once the registration is successfully made, the AP that acts as the AP controller will add
the thin AP to its management list and provides it configuration information.

flow control for your JetWave 2450v2.
Note that the configuration will also apply on all the other
managed APs.
Wireless Networks (VAP Profiles Settings)
The IEEE 802.11n JetWave 2450v2 allows up to 8 virtual SSIDs on a single BSSID and to configure
different profile settings such as security and VLAN ID to each SSID.
To create a virtual AP, you may
check the Enable box of the profile and click on the profile (eg. Profile 2) to configure wireless and
security settings.
Hit Apply to active the profile.
37
Basic Setting
SSID: This wireless network name is shared among all associated devices in your wireless
network. Keep it identical on all those devices.
Note that the SSID is case-sensitive and cannot
exceed 32 characters.
Description: Name of the VAP profile
Broadcast SSID: In AP mode, hiding network name is necessary when you are in a wireless
environment that may have potential risk. By disabling broadcast SSID, the STA cannot scan and
find the IEEE 802.11n JetWave 2450v2, so that malicious attack by some illegal STA could be
avoided.
Wireless Separation: Wireless separation is an ideal way to enhance the security of network
transmission. By enabling “Wireless Separation” can prevent the communication among
associated wireless clients.
WMM Support: WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia) is a subset of 802.11e. It allows wireless communication
to define a priority limit on the basis of data type under AP mode only, thus those time-sensitive
data, like video/audio data, may own a higher priority than common one.
wireless client should also support it.

By default it is enabled and cannot be disabled in b/g/n
mode.
Max. Station Number: By default the “Max. Station Num” the JetWave 2450v2 will only allow up
to 32 wireless clients to associate with for better bandwidth for each client.
You may tick the box
and enter the preferable limits for maximum client association number.
38
Security Setting:
To prevent unauthorized radios from accessing data transmitting over the connectivity, the IEEE
802.11a/n JetWave 2450v2 provides you with rock solid security settings.
Network Authentication
Open System: It allows any device to join the network without performing any security check.
Shared Key: Data encryption and key are required for wireless authentication (Not available in
Bridge/AP Repeater mode).
Legacy 802.1x: It provides the rights to access the wireless network and wired Ethernet. With
User and PC identity, centralized authentication as well as dynamic key management, it controls
the security risk of wireless network to the lowest. To serve the 802.1x, at least one EAP type
should be supported by the RADIUS Server, AP and wireless client.
WPA with RADIUS: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a subset of the IEEE 802.11i standard.
With warrant (username, password and etc.) offered by user, this kind of authentication can be
realized with specific RADIUS server. This is the common way to be adopted in large enterprise
network.
WPA2 with RADIUS: WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i) is a wireless security standard that defines stronger
encryption, authentication and key management than WPA.
If it is selected, AES encryption and
RADIUS server are required.
39
WPA&WPA2 with RADIUS: It provides options of WPA (TKIP) or WPA2 (AES) for the client. If it is
selected, the data encryption type must be TKIP + AES and the RADIUS server must be set.
Note:
If Radius relevant authentication type is selected, please go to Wireless  Radius
Settings for further radius server configuration.
WPA-PSK: It is a simplified WPA mode with no need for specific authentication server. In this
so-called WPA Pre-Shared Key, all you have to do is just pre-enter a key in each WLAN node and
this is the common way to be adopted in large and middle enterprise as well as residential
network.
WPA2-PSK: As a new version of WPA, only all the clients support WPA2, can it be available. If it is
selected, the data encryption can only be AES and the passphrase is required.
WPA-PSK&WPA2-PSK: Available in AP mode, it provides options of WPA (TKIP) or WPA2 (AES)
encryption for the client. If it is selected, the data encryption can only be TKIP + AES and the
passphrase is required.
Data Encryption
If data encryption is enabled, the key is required and only sharing the same key with other
wireless devices can the communication be established.
None: Available only when the authentication type is open system.
64 bits WEP: It is made up of 10 hexadecimal numbers.
128 bits WEP: It is made up of 26 hexadecimal numbers.
152 bits WEP: It is made up of 32 hexadecimal numbers.
TKIP: Temporal Key Integrity Protocol, which is a kind of dynamic encryption, is co-used with
WPA-PSK, etc.
AES: Advanced Encryption Standard, it is usually co-used with WPA2-PSK, WPA, WPA2, etc.
TKIP + AES: It allows for backwards compatibility with devices using TKIP.
Note:
We strongly recommend you enable wireless security on your network!
Only the same Authentication, Data Encryption and Key among the IEEE 802.11n

56
Wireless Network Name (SSID)
This wireless network name is shared among all associated devices in your wireless network.
Keep it identical on all those devices.
Note that the SSID is case-sensitive and can not exceed
32 characters.
Broadcast SSID
Under AP mode, hiding network name is necessary when you are in a wireless environment that
may have potential risk. By disabling broadcast SSID, the STA can not scan and find IEEE
802.11n JetWave 2450v2, so that malicious attack by some illegal STA could be avoided.
802.11 Mode
The IEEE 802.11n JetWave 2450v2 can communicate with wireless devices of 802.11b/g or
802.11b/g/n.
HT Protect
Enable HT (High Throughput) protect to ensure HT transmission with MAC mechanism. Under
802.11n mode, wireless client can be divided into HT STA and Non-HT STA, among which the
one with HT protect enabled gets higher throughput.
Frequency/Channel
Channel varies much as the available band differs from country to country. Select a proper
operating channel in the drop-down list according to your situation.
Extension Channel
Only applicable to AP, AP Repeater, and 40MHz channel width) indicates the use of channel
bonding that allows the IEEE 802.11n JetWave 2450v2 to use two channels at once.
Two
options are available: Upper Channel and Lower Channel.

Specify the signal transmission power. The higher the output power is, the wider the signal can
cover, but the power consumption will be greater accordingly.
The output power will vary
depending on each country’s regulation.
57
Data Rate
Usually “Auto” is preferred. Under this rate, the IEEE 802.11n JetWave 2450v2 will automatically
select the highest available rate to transmit. In some cases, however, like where there is no great
demand for speed, you can have a relatively-low transmit rate for compromise of a long distance.
Extension Channel Protection Mode
This is to avoid conflict with other wireless network and boost the ability of your device to catch all
802.11g transmissions. However, it may decrease wireless network performance. Compared to
CTS-Self; the transmission amount of CTS-RTS is much lower.

the security risk of wireless network to the lowest. To serve the 802.1x, at least one EAP type
should be supported by the RADIUS Server, AP and wireless client.
WPA with RADIUS: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a subset of the IEEE 802.11i standard.
With warrant (username, password and etc.) offered by user, this kind of authentication can be
realized with specific RADIUS server. This is the common way to be adopted in large enterprise
network.
WPA2 with RADIUS: WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i) is a wireless security standard that defines stronger
encryption, authentication and key management than WPA.
If it is selected, AES encryption and
RADIUS server are required.
WPA&WPA2 with RADIUS: It provides options of WPA (TKIP) or WPA2 (AES) for the client. If it is
60
selected, the data encryption type must be TKIP + AES and the RADIUS server must be set.
Note:
If Radius relevant authentication type is selected, please go to Wireless  Radius
Settings for further radius server configuration.
WPA-PSK: It is a simplified WPA mode with no need for specific authentication server. In this
so-called WPA Pre-Shared Key, all you have to do is just pre-enter a key in each WLAN node and
this is the common way to be adopted in large and middle enterprise as well as residential
network.
WPA2-PSK: As a new version of WPA, only all the clients support WPA2, can it be available. If it is
selected, the data encryption can only be AES and the passphrase is required.
WPA-PSK&WPA2-PSK: Available in AP mode, it provides options of WPA (TKIP) or WPA2 (AES)
encryption for the client. If it is selected, the data encryption can only be TKIP + AES and the

WDS Settings
Extend the range of your network without having to use cables to link the Access Points by using the
Wireless Distribution System (WDS): Simply put, you can link the Access Points wirelessly. Open
“WDS Settings” in “Wireless” as below:
Enter the MAC address of another AP you wirelessly want to connect to into the appropriate field and
click “Apply” to save settings.
Note:
WDS Settings is available only under Bridge and AP Repeater Mode.
Bridge uses the WDS protocol that is not defined as the standard thus compatibility
issues between equipment from different vendors may arise.
Moreover, Tree or
Star shape network topology should be used in all WDS use-cases (i.e. if AP2 and
AP3 are specified as the WDS peers of AP1, AP2 should not be specified as the
WDS peer of AP3 and AP3 should not be specified as the WDS peer of AP2 in any
case). Mesh and Ring network topologies are not supported by WDS and should be
avoided in all the use cases.

By clicking “Browse”, a file selection menu will appear, select the file you want to load, like ap.cfg;
Click “Upload” to load the file. After automatically rebooting, new settings are applied.
Restore Factory Default Settings
The IEEE 802.11n JetWave 2450v2 provides two ways to restore the factory default settings:
Restore factory default settings via Web
From “Configuration File”, clicking “Reset” will eliminate all current settings and reboot your
device, then default settings are applied.
71
Restore factory default settings via Reset Button
If software in IEEE 802.11n JetWave 2450v2 is unexpectedly crashed and no longer reset the unit
via Web, you may do hardware reset via the reset button.
Press and hold the button for at least
5 seconds and then release it until the PWR LED gives a blink.
Reboot
You can reboot your IEEE 802.11n JetWave 2450v2 from “Configuration File” in “Management” as
below:
Click “Reboot” and hit “Yes” upon the appeared prompt to start reboot process. This takes a few
minutes.
Remote Management
The IEEE 802.11n JetWave 2450v2 provides a variety of remotes managements including Telnet,
SNMP, FTP, SSH, HTTPS and exclusive WISE tool, making configuration more convenient and
secure.
72
SNMP Management
The IEEE 802.11n JetWave 2450v2 supports SNMP for convenient remote management. Open
“SNMP Settings” in “Management” shown below. Set the SNMP parameters and obtain MIB file
before remote management.
Protocol Version: Select the SNMP version, and keep it identical on the IEEE 802.11n JetWave
2450v2 and the SNMP manager.
The IEEE 802.11n JetWave 2450v2 supports SNMP v2/v3.
Server Port: Change the server port for a service if needed; however you have to use the same port to
use that service for remote management.
Get Community: Specify the password for the incoming Get and GetNext requests from the
management station. By default, it is set to public and allows all requests.
Set Community: Specify the password for the incoming Set requests from the management station.
By default, it is set to private.
73
Trap Destination: Specify the IP address of the station to send the SNMP traps to.
Trap Community: Specify the password sent with each trap to the manager. By default, it is set to
public and allows all requests.
Configure SNMPv3 User Profile
