also select B+G+n mode to allow 80211b , 802.11g and 802.11n clients at
the same time.
ESSID This is the name of the wireless signal which is broadcasted. All the
devices in the same wireless LAN should have the same ESSID.
Channel Number The channel used by the wireless LAN. All devices in the
same wireless LAN should use the same channel.
Channel bandwidth 20/40 MHz Allows automatic detection of the
operation bandwidth between 20 and 40 MHz.
Extension channel This is the optional channel for use. Setting the Bandwith
to 20/40 MHz allows you to use this extension channel as the secondary
channel for doubling the bandwith of your wireless network.
24
Advanced Settings
This tab allows you to set the advanced wireless options. The options included
are Authentication Type, Fragment Threshold, RTS Threshold, Beacon
Interval, and Preamble Type. You should not change these parameters unless
you know what effect the changes will have on the router.
Fragment Threshold "Fragment Threshold" specifies the maximum size
of a packet during the fragmentation of data to be transmitted. If you set
this value too low, it will result in bad performance.
RTS Threshold When the packet size is smaller then the RTS threshold,
the wireless router will not use the RTS/CTS mechanism to send this
packet.
Beacon Interval is the interval of time that this wireless router
broadcasts a beacon. A Beacon is used to synchronize the wireless
network.
.
DTIM period is a countdown mechanism for WLAN Access Points
changing this value will affect your wireless performance and may improve
stability.
25
Preamble Type The “Long Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN
compatibility while the “Short Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN
performance.
Broadcast ESSID If you enabled “Broadcast ESSID”, every wireless
station located within the coverage of this access point can discover this
access point easily. If you are building a public wireless network, enabling
this feature is recommended. Disabling “Broadcast ESSID” can provide
better security.
Transmit burst mode if enabled wireless throughput is enhanced, this
may affect compatibility.
802.11g: It is recommended to enable the protection mechanism. This
mechanism can decrease the rate of data collision between 802.11b and
802.11g wireless stations. When the protection mode is enabled, the
throughput of the AP will be a little lower due to a lot of frame-network
that is transmitted.
WMM WiFi Multi Media if enabled supports QoS for experiencing better
audio, video and voice in applications.
26
Security
This Access Point provides complete wireless LAN security functions, included
are WEP, IEEE 802.11x, IEEE 802.11x with WEP, WPA with pre-shared key
and WPA with RADIUS. With these security functions, you can prevent your
wireless LAN from illegal access. Please make sure your wireless stations use
the same security function, and are setup with the same security key.
Disable
When you choose to disable encryption, it is very insecure to operate WL-322.
27
WEP
When you select 64-bit or 128-bit WEP key, you have to enter WEP keys to
encrypt data. You can generate the key by yourself and enter it. You can
enter four WEP keys and select one of them as a default key. Then the router
can receive any packets encrypted by one of the four keys.
Key Length You can select the WEP key length for encryption, 64-bit or 128bit. The larger the key will be the higher level of security is used, but the
throughput will be lower.
Key Format You may select ASCII Characters (alphanumeric format) or
Hexadecimal Digits (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) to be the WEP Key.
Key1 - Key4 The WEP keys are used to encrypt data transmitted in the
wireless network. Use the following rules to setup a WEP key on the device.
64-bit WEP: input 10-digits Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or
5-digit ASCII character as the encryption keys. 128-bit WEP: input 26-digit
Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or 13-digit ASCII characters
as the encryption keys.
28
Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations.
You can now configure other sections by choosing Continue, or choose Apply
to apply the settings and reboot the device.
WPA Pre-shared Key
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an advanced security standard. You can use
a pre-shared key to authenticate wireless stations and encrypt data during
communication. It uses TKIP or CCMP (AES) to change the encryption key
frequently. So the encryption key is not easy to be cracked by hackers. This is
the best security available.
29
WPA-Radius
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an advanced security standard. You can use
an external RADIUS server to authenticate wireless stations and provide the
session key to encrypt data during communication. It uses TKIP or CCMP
(AES) to change the encryption key frequently. Press Apply button when you
are done.

31
WPS
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is the simplest way to establish a connection
between the wireless clients and the wireless router. You don’t have to select
the encryption mode and fill in a long encryption passphrase every time when
you try to setup a wireless connection. You only need to press a button on
both wireless client and wireless router, and WPS will do the rest for you.
The wireless router supports two types of WPS: WPS via Push Button and
WPS via PIN code. If you want to use the Push Button, you have to push a
specific button on the wireless client or in the utility of the wireless client to
start the WPS mode, and switch the wireless router to WPS mode. You can
simply push the WPS button of the wireless router, or click the ‘Start to
Process’ button in the web configuration interface. If you want to use the PIN
code, you have to know the PIN code of the wireless client and switch it to
WPS mode, then fill-in the PIN code of the wireless client through the web
configuration interface of the wireless router.
WPS Check the box to enable WPS function and uncheck it to disable the
WPS function.
32
WPS Current Status If the wireless security (encryption) function of this
wireless router is properly set, you’ll see a ‘Configured’ message here.
Otherwise, you’ll see ‘UnConfigured’.
Self Pin Code This is the WPS PIN code of the wireless router. You may need
this information when connecting to other WPS-enabled wireless devices.
SSID This is the network broadcast name (SSID) of the router.
Authentication Mode It shows the active authentication mode for the
wireless connection.
Passphrase Key It shows the passphrase key that is randomly generated by
the wireless router during the WPS process. You may need this information
when using a device which doesn’t support WPS.
WPS via Push Button Press the button to start the WPS process. The router
will wait for the WPS request from the wireless devices within 2 minutes.
WPS via PIN You can fill-in the PIN code of the wireless device and press the
button to start the WPS process. The router will wait for the WPS request
from the wireless device within 2 minutes.

12 Firewall Settings
The Broadband router provides extensive firewall protection by restricting
connection parameters, thus limiting the risk of hacker attacks, and defending
against a wide array of common Internet attacks. However, for applications that
require unrestricted access to the Internet, you can configure a specific
client/server as a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).
Note: To enable the Firewall settings select Enable and click Apply
34
DMZ
If you have a client PC that cannot run an Internet application (e.g. Games)
properly from behind the NAT firewall, then you can open up the firewall
restrictions to unrestricted two-way Internet access by defining a DMZ Host.
The DMZ function allows you to re-direct all packets going to your WAN port
IP address to a particular IP address in your LAN. The difference between the
virtual server and the DMZ function is that the virtual server re-directs a
particular service/Internet application (e.g. FTP, websites) to a particular LAN
client/server, whereas DMZ re-directs all packets (regardless of services)
going to your WAN IP address to a particular LAN client/server.
Enable DMZ Enable/disable DMZ
Public IP Address The IP address of the WAN port or any other Public IP
addresses given to you by your ISP
Client PC IP Address Fill in the IP address of a particular host in your LAN
that will receive all the packets originally going to the WAN port/Public IP
address above.
Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations.
35
Denial of Service (DoS)
The Broadband router's firewall can block common hacker attacks, including
Denial of Service, Ping of Death, Port Scan and Sync Flood. If Internet attacks
occur the router can log the events.
SPI and Anti-Dos firewall protection blocks basic hacker attacks (DOS,
Sync flood, port scan)

detected by the agent. When a trap condition occurs, the SNMP agent sends an
SNMP trap message to any NMS specified as a trap receiver.
IP Address Traps are sent to this address when errors or specific events
occur on the network. Community A community string (password) specified for
trap management. Enter a word, something other than public or
private, to prevent unauthorized individuals from accessing
information on your system. Version Sets the trap status to disabled, or enabled
with V1 or V2c. The v2c protocol was proposed in late 1995 and includes
enhancements to v1 that are universally accepted. These include a get-bulk
command to reduce network management traffic when retrieving a sequence of
MIB variables, and a more elaborate set of error codes for improved reporting to
a Network Management Station.
