To provide a certain level of security, the IEEE 802.11 standard has defined two types of authentication
methods: Open System or Shared Key. And WL-5460APv2 also support other wireless authentication and
encryption methods for enhance your wireless network.
With Open System authentication, a wireless PC can join any network and receive any messages that are
not encrypted. With Shared Key authentication, only those PCs that possess the correct authentication key
can join the network. By default, IEEE 802.11 wireless devices operate in an Open System network and
None data encryption. If you want secure your wireless network, you need to setup wireless security related
function to enable security network.
None
Encryption: None (Encryption is set to None by default.)
If the Access Point is using Encryption None, then the wireless adapter will need to be set to the same
authentication mode.
WEP

WPA is an encryption standard proposed by WiFi for advance protection by utilizing a password key (TKIP)
or certificate. It is more secure than WEP encryption.
Encryption: WPA2-AES / WPA2-Mixed
The two most important features beyond WPA to become standardized through 802.11i/WPA2 are:
pre-authentication, which enables secure fast roaming without noticeable signal latency. Pre-authentication
provides a way to establish a PMK security association before a client associates. The advantage is that the
client reduces the time that it's disconnected to the network.

Fragment Threshold
Fragmentation mechanism is used for improving the efficiency
when high traffic flows along in the wireless network. If your
802.11g Wireless LAN PC Card often transmit large files in wireless
23
WL5460AP v2 User’s Manual
network, you can enter new Fragment Threshold value to split the
packet.
The value can be set from 256 to 2346. The default value
is 2346.
RTS Threshold
RTS Threshold is a mechanism implemented to prevent the “Hidden Node”
problem. “Hidden Node” is a situation in which two stations are within range of
the same Access Point, but are not within range of each other. Therefore, they
are hidden nodes for each other. When a station starts data transmission with
the Access Point, it might not notice that the other station is already using the
wireless medium. When these two stations send data at the same time, they
might collide when arriving simultaneously at the Access Point. The collision
will most certainly result in a loss of messages for both stations.
Thus, the RTS Threshold mechanism provides a solution to prevent data
collisions. When you enable RTS Threshold on a suspect “hidden
station”, this station and its Access Point will use a Request to Send
(RTS). The station will send an RTS to the Access Point, informing
that it is going to transmit the data. Upon receipt, the Access Point
will respond with a CTS message to all station within its range to
notify all other stations to defer transmission. It will also confirm the
requestor station that the Access Point has reserved it for the
time-frame of the requested transmission.
If the “Hidden Node” problem is an issue, please specify the packet size. The
RTS mechanism will be activated if the data size exceeds the value you set..
The default value is 2347.
Warning: Enabling RTS Threshold will cause redundant network overhead
that could negatively affect the throughput performance instead of providing
a remedy.
This value should remain at its default setting of 2347. Should you encounter
inconsistent data flow, only minor modifications of this value are
recommended.
Beacon Interval
Beacon Interval is the amount of time between beacon transmissions. Before
a station enters power save mode, the station needs the beacon interval to
know when to wake up to receive the beacon (and learn whether there are
buffered frames at the access point).
Data Rate
By default, the unit adaptively selects the highest possible rate for
transmission. Select the basic rates to be used among the following options:
Auto, 1, 2, 5.5, 11or 54 Mbps. For most networks the default setting is Auto
which is the best choice. When Auto is enabled the transmission rate will
24
WL5460AP v2 User’s Manual
select the optimal rate. If obstacles or interference are present, the system will
automatically fall back to a lower rate.
Preamble Type
A preamble is a signal used in wireless environment to synchronize the
transmitting timing including Synchronization and Start frame delimiter. In a
"noisy" network environment, the Preamble Type should be set to Long
Preamble. The Short Preamble is intended for applications where minimum
overhead and maximum performance is desired. If in a "noisy" network
environment, the performance will be decreased.
Broadcast SSID
Select enabled to allow all the wireless stations to detect the SSID of this
Access Point.
IAPP
IAPP (Inter Access Point Protocol) is designed for the enforcement of unique
association throughout a ESS (Extended Service Set) and a secure exchange
of station’s security context between current access point (AP) and new AP
during handoff period.
802.11g Protection
The 802.11g standard includes a protection mechanism to ensure mixed 802.11b and
802.11g operation. If there is no such kind of mechanism exists, the two kinds of
standards may mutually interfere and decrease network’s performance.
TX Power Level
For countries that impose limit on WLAN output power, it might be necessary
to reduce TX (transmit) power. There are 7 TX Power Levels to choose
from — select a level to make sure that the output power measured at the
antenna end will not exceed the legal limit in your country.

ACK Timeout
When a packet is sent out from one wireless station to the other, it will waits
for an Acknowledgement frame from the remote station. If the ACK is NOT
received within that timeout period then the packet will be re-transmitted
resulting in reduced throughput. If the ACK setting is too high then
throughput will be lost due to waiting for the ACK Window to timeout on lost
packets. By having the ability to adjust the ACK setting we can effectively
optimize the throughput over long distance links. This is especially true for
802.11a and 802.11g networks
You can set as default for auto adjustment.
