the 2.4 GH z fre quency spe ctrum s upporting the 802.11b (2.4GHz, 11Mbps) and
faster 802 .11g (2.4GHz, 54Mbps) w ireless standards. It's the
best w ay to add
wireless ca pability t o your existing wired netwo rk, or to add b andwidth to your
wireless installation.
ECB-1220R has high transmitted output power and high receivable sensitivity. High
output power and high sen sitivity can extend range and cov erage to redu ce the
roaming b etween APs to ge t more stability w ireless c onnection. It also can re duce
the expense of equipment in the same environment.
To protect your wireless connectivity, it can encrypt all wireless transmissions through
64/128-bit WEP da ta e ncryption an d als o su pports WPA/WPA2. The MAC addres s
filter lets you select exactly which stations should have access to your network. User
isolation function can protect the private network between client users.
This chapter describes the features & ben efits, package contents, applications, and
network configuration.

device.
h PC/AT compatible computer with Ethernet interface.
h Operating system that supports HTTP web-browser
Applications
The wireless LAN p roducts are easy to install and highly efficient. The following list
describes some of the many ap plications ma de possible through the p ower an d
flexibility of wireless LANs:
a) Difficult-to-wire environments
There are many s ituations w here wires cannot be laid e asily. Historic
buildings, older buildings, o pen are as and ac ross b usy s treets make the
installation of LANs either impossible or very expensive.
b) Temporary workgroups
Consider situations in parks, athletic arenas, exhibition centers, disasterrecovery, temporary offices and construction si tes where on e wants a
temporary WLAN established and removed.
c) The ability to access real-time information
Doctors/nurses, poin t-of-sale e mployees, a nd wa rehouse w orkers can
access rea l-time informa tion while d ealing w ith patients, se rving
customers and processing information.
d) Frequently changed environments
Show rooms, meeting rooms, retail stores, and manufacturing sites where
frequently rearrange the workplace.
e) Small Office and Home Office (SOHO) networks
SOHO users need a cost-effective, easy and quick installation of a small
8
ECB-1221R Wireless Long Range Multi-function Client Bridge
network.
f) Wireless extensions to Ethernet networks
Network managers in dynamic environments c an minimize the overhead
caused by moves, ex tensions t o ne tworks, and o ther c hanges with
wireless LANs.
g) Wired LAN backup
Network manage rs implement
wireless LANs
to provide backup for
mission-critical applications running on wired networks.
h) Training/Educational facilities
Training sites a t co rporations and s tudents a t univ ersities use wireless
connectivity to eas e acc ess t o in formation, information ex changes, a nd
learning.
Network Configuration
To better u nderstand h ow the wireless LAN p roducts work toge ther to create a
wireless network, it might be helpful to depict a few of the possible wireless LAN PC
card network configurations. The wireless LAN products can be configured as:
a) Ad-hoc (or peer-to-peer) for departmental or SOHO LANs.
b) I nfrastructure for enterprise LANs.
a) Ad-hoc (peer-to-peer) Mode
This is t he simples t network c onfiguration with s everal c omputers
equipped with the PC Cards that form a wireless network whenever they
are within range of one another. In ad-hoc mode, each client is peer-topeer, wo uld only hav e access to the res ources o f the o ther client an d
does not require an access point. This is the e asiest and least expensive
way for the SOHO to set up a wireless network. The image below depicts
a network in ad-hoc mode.
9
ECB-1221R Wireless Long Range Multi-function Client Bridge
b) Infrastructure Mode
The infrastructure mode requires the use of an access point (AP). In this
mode, all wireless commun ication between two c omputers has to be via
the AP. It doesn’t matter if the AP is stand-alone or wired to an Ethernet
network. If use d in stand-alone, the
AP can extend the
range of
independent w ireless L ANs b y a cting as a repeater, which effec tively
doubles the distance between wireless stations. The image below depicts
a network in infrastructure mode.

ƒ
Band: Select the IEEE 802.11 mode from the dr op-down list. Options available are
2.4GHz (B), 2.4GHz (G), or 2.4GHz (B+G). Select the appropriate mode based on
the type of wireless network. For example, if you are sure that the wireless network
will be using only IEEE 802.11g clients, then it is recommended to select 2.4GHz (G)
instead of 2.4GHz (B+G) which will reduce the performance of the wireless network.
ƒ
SSID: The S SID is a un ique nam ed s hared amongst a ll t he points of the wirel ess
network. The SSID must be identical on all points of the wireless network and cannot
exceed 32 characters.
ƒ
Channel: Sel ect a c hannel from the dr op-down list. T he c hannels av ailable are
based on the country’s regulation. When selecting Infrastructure mode, a channel is
not r equired, h owever, whe n s electing A dhoc mo de, you mu st select the
same
channel on all points.

ƒ
Authentication Type: select an authentication method. Options a vailable are Open
System, Shared Key or Auto. An open system allows any client to authenticate as
long a s it conforms to a ny MAC ad dress filter poli cies that may have b een s et. All
authentication packets are
transmitted w ithout encry ption. S hared Key sends an
unencrypted challenge text string to any device attempting to communicate with the
AP. The de vice r equesting auth entication encry pts the c hallenge tex t an d sen ds it
back to the access point. If the challenge text is encrypted correctly, the access point
allows the requesting device to authenticate. It is rec ommended to select Auto if you
are not sure which authentication type is used.
ƒ
Fragment Threshold: Packets over the s pecified size will be fragmented in order to
improve performance on noisy networks.
ƒ
RTS Threshold: Packets over the specified size will use the RTS/CTS mechanism to
maintain pe rformance i n n oisy ne tworks and preve
nting hidden no des fro m
degrading the performance.
ƒ
Beacon Interval: Beacons will be sent out to devices at the specified intervals. This
value is measured in milliseconds (ms).
ƒ
ACK Timeout: You may specify a value for the acknowledge timeout.

WEP 64-bit / 128-bit
ƒ
Encryption: Select WEP from the drop-down list if your wireless network uses WEP
encryption. WE P is an ac ronym for Wired Equivalent P rivacy, and is a security
protocol that provides the same level of security for wireless networks as for a wired
network.
ƒ

ƒ
Key Length: Select a 64-bit or 128-bit from the drop-down list.
ƒ
Key Format: Select a key format from the drop-down list. 64bit-hex keys require 10
characters, where as 128- bit keys require 26 characters. A hex key is def ined as a
number between 0 through 9 and letter between A through F.

WPA / WPA2 / WPA2 Mixed Passphrase
ƒ
Encryption: S elect WPA, WPA2 or WPA2_Mixed from the drop-down l ist if your
wireless network uses this encryption. WPA (Wi-Fi P rotected Access) was d esigned
to im prove up on the s ecurity fea tures of WEP (Wi red Equivalent P rivacy). The
technology is d esigned to work with existing Wi-Fi products that have been enabled
with WEP . WPA pro vides imp roved data e ncryption throu gh t he Te mporal Integrity
Protocol (TKIP), which scrambles the keys using a hashing algorithm and by adding
an integrity checking feature which makes sure that keys haven’t been tampered with.
ƒ
WPA Authentication Mode: Select the Personal (Pre-Shared Key) radio button.
ƒ
WPA/WPA2: Select TKIP, AES or both as the cipher suite.
