1 Introduction
The Outdoor Wireless Bridge is a 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11b-compliant Wireless
Bridge/AP/AP Client. The Outdoor Wireless Bridge can operate as a point-to-point or
a point-to-multipoint bridge to link networks in different buildings. The Outdoor
Wireless Bridge is ideal for broadband ISP, enterprises, store merchants and small
business owners to create wireless backbone networks.
The Outdoor Wireless Bridge is designed for outdoor environments. With die-cast
watertight housing and an external lightning protector, this is a robust Outdoor
Wireless Bridge/AP/AP Client. It includes cost-effective Power-over- Ethernet (PoE)
adapter for supplying power to the Bridge when a power outlet is not easily available.
Also, the unique outdoor remote-mounted designs allow easy installation. With a
one-meter RF cable needed between the Outdoor Wireless Bridge and the external
antenna, the Outdoor Wireless Bridge is a cost-effective outdoor solution for long
distance communications. The Outdoor Wireless Bridge can be easily managed
through a web-based interface.

2 Designing your Wireless Network
There are three different modes in which you can set up the Outdoor Wireless
Bridge/Access Point in the building-to-building wireless network: AP mode, Point to
Point mode, and Point to Multipoint mode. This chapter describes how the three
different modes work
2.1 Access Point Mode
You can configure the Outdoor Wireless Bridge as an Outdoor Access Point through
the web-based user Interface configuration. Users with a wireless client device
outside can connect to the Outdoor Wireless Bridge to access the Local Area
Network.
2.2 Point-to-Point Connectivity (Ad-hoc Mode)
This is the simplest network configuration in which several computers equipped with
the PC cards or client bridges that form a wireless network whenever they are within
range of one another. In ad-hoc mode, each client is linked peer-to-peer and would
only have access to the resources of the other client, this does not require an Access
Point. This is the easiest and least expensive way for the SOHO to set up a wireless
network.
Page 6 of 31
Outdoor Wireless Bridge / Access Point
Version 1.0
2.3 Point-to-Multi point Connectivity (Infrastructure Mode)
Infrastructure mode requires the use of an Access Point (AP). In this mode, all
wireless communication between two computers has to be via the AP whether the
AP is wired to an Ethernet network or stands alone. If used as a stand-alone, the AP
can extend the range of independent wireless LANs by acting a repeater, which
effectively doubles the distance between wireless stations.
If wired to an Ethernet network, the AP serves as a bridge and provides the link
between the server and the wireless clients. The wireless clients can move freely
throughout the coverage area of the AP while remaining connected to the server.
Since the AP is connected to the wired network, each client would have access to
server resources as well as to other clients.
In a very large facility such as an enterprise, a warehouse, or on a college campus, it
will probably be necessary to install more than one access point to cover an entire
building or campus. In this scenario, access points hand the client off from one to
another in a way that is invisible to the client, ensuring unbroken connectivity.
Wireless clients can roam seamlessly between different coverage areas and remain
connected to the network.

3 Hardware Installation
3.1 Decide Where to Place the Device
Since this device is a radio device and works in the 2.4 GHz frequency range, for
optimum utilization, install this product away from microwave ovens or other devices
operating in the 2.4 GHz frequency range which can cause signal interference. Install
this device’s antenna in an area where the trees, buildings and large steel structures
do not obstruct the signal to and from the antenna. In conclusion, the antenna should
be located in the higher direct line-of-sight space.
Page 8 of 31
Outdoor Wireless Bridge / Access Point
Version 1.0
3.2 Lightening Protection
Radio transmitters, receivers, and RF cables require protection when attacked by
lightning strikes. The surge protectors contain fast response gas filled arrestors to
provide low let through voltage for fast rise time transients. This device is configured
to minimize circuit capacitance and the performance can be assured up to 2GHz.
Standard models provide protection for receivers and transmitters up to a 1KW
power level.
Installing this device outdoor may be subject to lightning strikes. To properly protect
your equipment, you should install the lightning arrestor to prevent an electrical surge
from traveling through the antenna cable and into the building. Lightning protection
for a building is more forgiving than protection of electrical devices. A building can
withstand up to 100,000 volts, but just a few volts may damage electrical equipment.
Direct earth grounding of the antenna and the Lightning Protector is necessary to
protect the installation from lightning and the build-up of static electricity. The ground
terminal is located on the lightning protector that attached with this unit. Connect one
end of the grounding cable to the Ground terminal and the other end to a good
ground connection. The package content contains a lightning arrestor, and should be
installed and grounded at the point where the cable enters the antenna.
The device connects to a Lightning Protector with a standard low-loss cable. The
Lightning Protector also connects to the outdoor antenna with a standard low-loss
cable. A longer cable can decrease the distance achievable between antennas. Use
an N-N Type (M) cable to connect this unit to the extra lightning protector and the
other N-N Type (M) cable to connect to the antenna as shown below.

Maximum associated stations: this limits the number of stations that can
associate with the Access Point.
Fragmentation threshold: this value indicates how much of the Access
Point’s resources are devoted to recovering packet errors. The value
should remain at its default setting. If you decrease this value too much
you may encounter high packet error rates, however if you increase it too
much it will affect overall performance. Therefore, it is recommended to
leave this value at its default of 2346.
RTS threshold: transmitted wireless packets larger than this size will use
the RTS/CTS protocol to (a) maintain performance in noisy wireless
networks and (b) prevent hidden nodes from degrading performance.
Beacon period: this value indicates the frequency interval of the beacon.
The beacon is a packet broadcasted by the Access Point to keep the
network synchronized. A beacon consists of the wireless LAN service area,
IP address, broadcast destination address, time stamp, Delivery Traffic
Indication Map (DTIM) and Traffic Indicator Message (TIM).
DTIM Interval: this value indicates the interval of the Deliver Traffic
Indicator Map (DTIM). The DTIM field is a countdown field informing
clients of the next window for listening to broadcast and multicast
messages. When the Access Point has buffered broadcast of multicast
messages for associated clients, it sends the next DTIM with a DTIM
interval value. Clients hear the beacons and then awaken to receive the
broadcast or multicast messages.
Multicast PM buffering: enabling this function can avoid network
congestion when there are too many clients to transmit data
simultaneously.
