Chapter 1 Introduction
Introduction
The IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE is a multi-mode last-mile broadband solution
for customers like wireless ISP (WISPs) and system integrators. By the nature of complying
with the IEEE802.11n standard and featuring high power output, IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS
OUTDOOR CPE supports higher bandwidth with longer range for outdoor applications.
IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE can be used as the access point, the customer
premises equipment (CPE), the WDS or the AP Repeater. While being as the access point, it
can be deployed outdoors to provide outdoor wireless internet service. In the other way to be
as the outdoor CPE, it can receive wireless signal over the last mile, helping WISPs deliver
internet service to the new residential and the business customer where wired broadband
internet service, such as cable and DSL, can not serve in. In addition, the easy-to-install IEEE
802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE covers 2.4GHz bands, which features outstanding
throughput performance and a cost-effective design that allows users to have the reliable
outdoor equipment at the affordable price.

There are two network modes available in IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE:
Bridge Mode and Router Mode.
Users are recommended to pay attention to the
following warnings when they configure the network mode.
Warning:
In AP mode, IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE must establish
connection with another wireless device before it is set to Router mode. In
Router mode, it is impossible for users to access device via wired port, for WAN
is on wired port and LAN is on wireless port. Users can access device through
the wireless device connected to IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE.
In CPE mode, users can access IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE
via its wired port, for WAN is on wireless port and LAN is on wired port when
device is set to Router mode.
WDS mode and AP Repeater mode are similar to AP mode when device is set
to Router mode; WAN is on wired port and LAN is on wireless port. Thus users
must also connect IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE with another
wireless device before it is set to Router mode and access IEEE 802.11N
WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE via the connected wireless device.

Chapter 5 Troubleshooting
1.
Why can’t I go to the log-in page, while I key in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of the
web browser?
A:
Make sure that the IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE is correctly connected
with you PC, and powered on already. Then make sure that the IP address of your PC is
set in the same network segment with the IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE,
which means that the IP address of your PC should be between 192.168.1.2 and
192.168.1.254.
2.
In the CPE mode, the quality of the connection is bad or unstable after choosing an
available access point to connect to. How can I solve it?
A:
Since the IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE comes with the built-in directional
antenna, you should turn the IEEE 802.11N WIRELESS OUTDOOR CPE to face the
direction where the access point you connect to is located to get the best quality of the
connection. In addition, you can also click Site Survey in the “Wireless Basic Settings”
window to see the Signal Strength. If it is weak or unstable (the smaller the number is,
the weaker the signal strength is; please note that the signal strength comes with a
native sign with the numbers.), please choose another available access point or router
for better connection.
