Access Point, but also doubles as a 4-port full-duplex Gigabit switch that connects your
wired-Ethernet devices together at 10/100/1000 Mbps speeds.
At 300 Mbps wireless transmission rate, the Access Point built into the router uses
advanced MIMO (Multi-Input, Multi-Output) technology to transmit multiple streams of
data in a single wireless channel, giving you seamless access to multimedia content. The
robust RF signal travels farther, eliminates dead spots and extends the network range.
For data protection and privacy, the router encodes all wireless transmissions with WEP,
WPA, or WPA2 encryption.
With the built-in DHCP Server & powerful SPI firewall, the router protects your computers
against intruders and most known Internet attacks and also provides safe VPN passthrough. With the incredible speed and QoS function of 802.11n, the router is ideal for
media-centric applications like streaming video, gaming, and VoIP telephony to run
multiple media-intense data streams through the network at the same time, with no
degradation in performance.

Advanced Settings
This tab allows you to set the advanced wireless options. The options included are
Authentication Type, Fragment Threshold, RTS Threshold, Beacon Interval, and Preamble
Type. You should not change these parameters unless you know what effect the changes
will have on the router.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Authentication Type: There are two authentication types: "Open System"
and "Shared Key". When you select "Open System", wireless stations can
associate with this wireless router without WEP encryption. When you select
"Shared Key", you should also setup a WEP key in the "Encryption" page. After
this has been done, make sure the wireless clients that you want to connect to
the device are also setup with the same encryption key.
Fragment Threshold: "Fragment Threshold" specifies the maximum size of a
packet during the fragmentation of data to be transmitted. If you set this
value too low, it will result in bad performance.
RTS Threshold: When the packet size is smaller then the RTS threshold, the
wireless router will not use the RTS/CTS mechanism to send this packet.
Beacon Interval: This is the interval of time that this wireless router
broadcasts a beacon. A Beacon is used to synchronize the wireless network.
Data Rate: The “Data Rate” is the rate that this access point uses to transmit
data packets. The access point will use the highest possible selected
transmission rate to transmit the data packets.
N Data Rate: The “Data Rate” is the rate that this access point uses to
transmit data packets for N compliant wireless nodes. Highest to lowest data
rate can be fixed.
Channel Bandwidth: This is the range of frequencies that will be used.
Preamble Type: The “Long Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN
compatibility while the “Short Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN
performance.
Broadcast ESSID: If you enabled “Broadcast ESSID”, every wireless station
located within the coverage of this access point can discover this access point
easily. If you are building a public wireless network, enabling this feature is
recommended. Disabling “Broadcast ESSID” can provide better security.
CTS Protection: It is recommended to enable the protection mechanism. This
mechanism can decrease the rate of data collision between 802.11b and
802.11g wireless stations. When the protection mode is enabled, the
•
•
throughput of the AP will be a little lower due to a lot of frame-network that is
transmitted.
TX Power: The transmit power can be set to a bare minimum or maximum
power for better performance or power saving.
WMM: WiFi Multi Media. If enabled this supports QoS for experiencing better
audio, video and voice in applications.
Security
This router provides complete wireless LAN security functions, included are WEP, IEEE
802.11x, IEEE 802.11x with WEP, WPA with pre-shared key and WPA with RADIUS. With
these security functions, you can prevent your wireless LAN from illegal access. Please
make sure your wireless stations use the same security function, and are setup with the
same security key.
Disable
When you choose to disable encryption, it is very insecure to use the router.
Enable 802.1x Authentication
IEEE 802.1x is an authentication protocol. Every user must use a valid account to login to
this Access Point before accessing the wireless LAN. The authentication is processed by a
RADIUS server. This mode only authenticates users by IEEE 802.1x, but it does not
encrypt the data during communication
WEP
When you select 64-bit or 128-bit WEP key, you have to enter WEP keys to encrypt data.
You can generate the key by yourself and enter it. You can enter four WEP keys and
select one of them as a default key. Then the router can receive any packets encrypted
by one of the four keys.
•
•
•
Key Length: You can select the WEP key length for encryption, 64-bit or 128bit. The larger the key will be the higher level of security is used, but the
throughput will be lower.
Key Type: You may select ASCII Characters (alphanumeric format) or
Hexadecimal Digits (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) to be the WEP Key.
Key1 - Key4: The WEP keys are used to encrypt data transmitted in the
wireless network. Use the following rules to setup a WEP key on the device.
64-bit WEP: input 10-digits Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or
5-digit ASCII character as the encryption keys. 128-bit WEP: input 26-digit
Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or 13-digit ASCII characters
as the encryption keys.
Click Apply at the bottom of the screen to save the above configuration.
WPA Pre-shared Key
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an advanced security standard. You can use a preshared key to authenticate wireless stations and encrypt data during communication. It
uses TKIP or CCMP (AES) to change the encryption key frequently, so the encryption key
is not easy to be cracked by hackers. This is the best security available.
WPA-Radius
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an advanced security standard. You can use an external
RADIUS server to authenticate wireless stations and provide the session key to encrypt
data during communication. It uses TKIP or CCMP (AES) to change the encryption key
frequently. Press Apply when you are done.
ACL
This wireless router supports MAC Address Control, which prevents unauthorized clients
from accessing your wireless network.
•
•
•
Enable wireless access control: Enables the wireless access control function

all the MAC addresses from the list, just click the "Delete All" button. Click
"Reset" will clear your current selections.
Click Apply at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations. You can now
configure other sections by choosing Continue, or choose Apply to apply the settings and
reboot the device.
WPS
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is the simplest way to establish a connection between the
wireless clients and the wireless router. You don’t have to select the encryption mode
and fill in a long encryption passphrase every time when you try to setup a wireless
connection. You only need to press a button on both wireless client and wireless router,
and WPS will do the rest for you.
The wireless router supports two types of WPS: WPS via Push Button and WPS via PIN
code. If you want to use the Push Button, you have to push a specific button on the
wireless client or in the utility of the wireless client to start the WPS mode, and switch
the wireless router to WPS mode. You can simply push the WPS button of the wireless
router, or click the ‘Start to Process’ button in the web configuration interface. If you
want to use the PIN code, you have to know the PIN code of the wireless client and
switch it to WPS mode, then fill-in the PIN code of the wireless client through the web
configuration interface of the wireless router.

the wireless device within 2 minutes.
Firewall Settings
The router provides extensive firewall protection by restricting connection parameters,
thus limiting the risk of hacker attacks, and defending against a wide array of common
Internet attacks. However, for applications that require unrestricted access to the
Internet, you can configure a specific client/server as a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).
Note: To enable the Firewall settings select Enable and click Apply
DMZ
If you have a client PC that cannot run an Internet application (e.g. Games) properly
from behind the NAT firewall, then you can open up the firewall restrictions to
unrestricted two-way Internet access by defining a DMZ Host. The DMZ function allows
you to re-direct all packets going to your WAN port IP address to a particular IP address
in your LAN. The difference between the virtual server and the DMZ function is that the
virtual server re-directs a particular service/Internet application (e.g. FTP, websites) to a
particular LAN client/server, whereas DMZ re-directs all packets (regardless of services)
going to your WAN IP address to a particular LAN client/server.
