window to receive broadcast and multicast.
Fragment Threshold: Specific fragment thresholds of the data packets. When the length of the data
packet exceeds such threshold then packets are split automatically.
RTS threshold: A RTS (Request to Send) threshold specified by the data packets. When the length of
the data packets exceeds this threshold the Router will send an RTS to the target sites for negotiation.
After the wireless site (client) receives RTS frames it will respond to the Router by sending a CTS
(Clear to Send) frame indicating that the wireless communication is possible.
TX power: Defines percentage of Transmit power – 100% is full power.
Short preamble: The default status is “Prohibit”. The Router applies long preambles by default. If
short peambles are enabled then the system will no longer be compatible with the operation speed
(1Mbps or 2Mbps) of the traditional IEEE802.11 but efficiency for higher speeds is improved.
Short slot: The default setting is “Enable” and you can switch it off. Setting this to “Enable” might
enhance the transmission rate of the wireless communication.

settings on a WiFi network. You have no need to select the encryption mode or configure a key. You just
need to enter the correct PIN code or select PBC (or press “WLAN/WPS” button indicated on the back panel)
to configure WPS.
Solwise Ltd, www.solwise.co.uk, [email protected]
27
Wi-Fi Protection Settings: Used to disable or enable the WPS functions. The default status is
“Disable”.
WPS Overview: Display relevant information including current WPS status, authentication modes and
encryption types applied, and default private key indexing.
WPS Current Status: “Idle” means the idle status. “Start MSC Process” means that the process is
enabled and the access is being processed. “Success” meanss that the server (AP) and the client have
reached an agreement during the negotiation.
WPS Validity: “Yes” means operational and “Not Used” means not used yet. Generally, if the
AP-Safety Configuration takes effect, this place will be displayed as “Not Used”.
SSID Configured by WPS: Display the master SSID numbers of the WPS. WPS is only valid for the
master SSID.
WPS Authentication Mode: The authentication mode used by WPS. WPA/WPA2-Personal mode is
commonly seen.
WPS Encryption Type: It means the data encryption type. AES/TKIP encryption type is commonly
seen.
WPS Key: Effective keys automatically generated by AP.
Reset OOB: When you press this button, the WPS service terminal is indicated as Idle and the WPS
indication light turns off. AP will not respond to connection requests from WPS clients and the safety
are configured as WPA mode.
28 Solwise Ltd, www.solwise.co.uk, [email protected]
WPS Mode: Support two kinds of simple WPS settings, namely PBC (Push-Button Configuration) and
PIN code.
PBC: Select PBC and click "Save as" or press WLAN/WPS button on the back panel for about one
second while activating WPS / PBC on the client device.
Operation Process: After clicking the WLAN/WPS button for one second the WPS lights will blink
about 2 minutes, indicating that the function is activated. In this time range, you need to trigger WPS on
the client device. The client device will then loads it’s configuration from the router. After the
connection is successfully completed the WPS indication light will go off and the client setup is
completed. If there are multiple wireless clients then the user needs to repeat the process for each client
inturn. Up to 32 wireless clients can be setup this way.
PIN: If users want to use the PIN for configuration (as an alternative to the WPS button) then the users
must know the PIN code of the wireless client device. The user then needs to add the PIN to the
relevant field on the router page and save; the devices should then handshake and exchange the setup
details automatically.
PIN (Key): Default PIN code.
4.2.6 AP client
Displays information relevant to the hosts that are connected to the Router’s Intranet via DHCP.
4.3 Firewall
4.3.1 Address Filter
This function is aimed at restricting and managing connections of client devices to the Router. You can use
this function to restrict client access to the Router. To use this function you should first activate it and then
select a default strategy (i.e. accept or reject this client). Then fill out the corresponding filter rules. Please
note you don’t have to complete all the requested fields, just those pertanent to the type of filtering your are
trying top configure. For example, to ban the IP of 192.168.1.146 to use the Internet, you just need to setup
the default strategy as acceptance strategy and fill 192.168.1.146 in the column of the source IP address.
Solwise Ltd, www.solwise.co.uk, [email protected]
29
Mac/IP/Port Filtering: This function has no effect if “Prohibit” is selected. After you click “Enable”,
this function is applicable.

Protocol: Select protocols that are used by controllable data packets.
Strategy: Identify whether the defined rules are “Abandon” or “Accept”. This is the opposite meaning
to the default strategy.
30 Solwise Ltd, www.solwise.co.uk, [email protected]
Remarks: Indicate comments by you to differentiate the rules.
4.3.2 Virtual Server
The virtual host enables remote users who gain access to web or FTP services via public network IP
addresses to automatically direct their traffic to local servers on the LAN. The virtual server defines a service
port and then all service requests to this port raised by the Extranet (internet) are transmitted to the
appropriate LAN servers as specified by the Router (based on IP address). This way, the user could
successfully access LAN servers without affecting the internal network safety of the LAN.
Virtual Server settings: Enable or disable functions of the virtual servers.
IP address: It is used to input necessary IP addresses, such as192.168.1.103.
Port Range: It is used to input necessary port ranges, such as 80-80.
Protocol: Select protocols that are used by controllable data packets.
Remarks: Fill in necessary notes. In terms of the configurations described above, all data will be transmitted
to a computer with the IP address of 192.168.1.103 within the LAN if some program accesses the 80 port of
the Router.

DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) – The capability of assigning a fixed host and domain name to a
dynamic Internet IP Address. The Router supports the DDNS feature which allows the hosting of a website,
FTP server, or e-mail server with a fixed domain name (named by yourself) even when you have a dynamic
IP address. You can then connect externally to the router by entering your domain name no matter what your
WAN IP address is. Before using this feature you need to sign up for DDNS service through a providers. The
Dynamic DNS client service provider will give you a password or key.
Dynamic DNS Providers: select websites that provide dynamic domain name service.
Account Number: the login name you register in the websites that provide dynamic domain name
service.
Password: the password you register in the websites that provide dynamic domain name service.
DDNS: the domain name you register in the websites that provide dynamic domain name service
Note: Before using Dynamic Domain Name function, please register the dynamic DNS address services in
the website listed in drop-down box of service providers and ensure that this account is effective.
