Remark concerning the positioning:

helpful to change the cable.

The connection quality depends strongly on the place or surroundings where you put up the WLAN device. Please ensure that the device or its antennae are neither covered nor built in. We advise you against putting it up near metallic objects or other electric or radiant devices. In case of reception fl uctuations or connection interruptions we recommend you to move interference sources such as DECT telephones, mobile phones, Bluetooth devices or other WLAN networks out of the way. If this is not possible, it may also be

System requirements:

• Operating system with TCP/IP protocol installed • Java-capable web browser such as Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer

Safety instructions:

Do not use the device in moist or extremely dusty areas, on radiators or in the vicinity of heat sources. This device is not designed for use outdoors. Protect the device from pressure and impact. The device may not be opened or moved during operation.

Caution!

Use the router with the enclosed power supply unit only. Using other power supply units can cause irreparable damage to the product.

Note!

The “Connect as required” setting is recommended for volume or timed rates, so that the internet connection is disconnected automatically after the period set in the „Idle time” option. Connection costs may be high if permanently connected. Please also note that closing the browser does not automatically disconnect from the internet. Many programs send queries to the internet or receive data from it without this being clearly visible. For the router, these queries are just as valid as opening a browser, for example. If you want to ensure that there is no active connection to the internet, you should switch off the device or disconnect it from the modem.

1. Connecting the Wireless LAN Router

1. Connect the computers and other network devices such as hubs/switches to sockets 1-4. Use a crossover or CAT5 patch cable (max. 100m). The integrated switch automatically identifi es the connection speed of 10 or 100Mbps, half/full duplex transfer mode and the type of cable used.

2. Connect the Ethernet port of your modem to the WAN connection on the router. A 1:1 or crossover cable is required depending on the modem. In most cases, the existing connection cable can be used. 3. Plug the power unit supplied into an empty socket and connect it to the router. Caution: Unsuitable power supply units can cause damage!

Checking Installation

There are various status indicating LEDs on the top of the device:

2. Confi guring the operating system and computer

The TCP/IP protocol must be installed on all PCs that will be using the Internet. By default, the IP address 192.168.2.1 and an activated DHCP server are confi gured for the router. This means that the connected PCs are automatically given appropriate addresses and other settings. We recommend using these settings.

Proceed as follows to check the settings on your PC: Start -> Settings -> Control panel -> Network connections Select the connection (network adapter) via which your PC is connected to the router, e.g. “LAN connection”. When you right-click the corresponding connection, a menu is displayed in which you select Properties.

Select the

Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

entry in the list and click

Properties

.

Select

Optain an IP address automatically

and

Encryption is a process in which plain text is transformed into a coded text via an encryption process (algorithm). One or more codes can be used for this. It must also be mentioned that each individual encryption process offers one or more authentication The following encryption types are available for this mode: • •

64 Bit and 128 Bit WEP encryption WPA and WPA2 encryption

You can make the settings under

Wireless/Security Settings

in the menu on the left for the

AP

mode.

Encryption is deactivated by default. However, for security reasons, we recommend that you always use encryption.

3.2.2.1 WEP encryption

Wired Equivalent Privacy (

WEP

) is a standard encryption algorithm for WLAN. It both controls the access to the network and guaran tees the integrity of the data. This method is considered vulnerable due to a range of weaknesses.

First select whether you want to use 64 bit or 128 bit encryption. 128 bit encryption offers greater security. Then select either Hex (characters from 0-9 and a-f) or ASCII (any character) for the

Key Format

. This also determines the length of the key.

Default Tx Key

3.2.2.2 WPA/WPA2 Encryption

Wi-Fi Protected Access

(WPA)

is an encryption method for WLAN. WPA contains the WEP architecture, but offers additional pro tection via dynamic codes, which are based on the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), and also offers pre-shared keys (PSK) or extensible authentication protocol (EAP) for user authentication. However, a radius server is required for this. WPA2 is a development of WPA and uses a different encryption algorithm, advanced encryption standard (AES).

WPA offers two types of authentication, either confi gure this authentication method.
