1. Introduction

1.1 Overview

This manual is intended for system integrators, field engineers and network administrators to set up WAB-3003 108M Outdoor PoE AP/ CPE/ Bridge in their network environments. It contains step-by-step procedures and graphic examples to guide users with networking knowledge to complete the installation. The 802.11 b/g compliant WAB-3003 is a multi-mode Last-Mile Broadband solution for Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP). It can be used as an outdoor Customer Premises Equipment (CPE mode) to receive wireless signal over the last mile, helping WISPs deliver wireless broadband Internet service to new residential and business customers, where wired broadband Internet service, such as cable and DSL, cannot serve. In addition, it can be deployed as a traditional fixed wireless Access Point (AP mode), either indoors or outdoors. The WAB-3003 is compact in size and weatherproof. Coming with a mounting kit, it can be mounted on a pole or wall. Specifically developed for outdoor use, the fully-hardened, IP68-rated WAB-3003 can withstand wind, rain, lightning, power surges, and extreme temperatures. The following is a network diagram for a typical WISP application. 1

3.2.1 Introduction to Web Management Interface

WAB-3003 provides a user friendly web management interface for configuration. As WAB-3003 is a dual-mode system which can be configured as either an access point (AP Mode) or a gateway (CPE Mode) based on your needs, it is required to follow the respective installation procedures provided to properly set up the desired mode for this system.  Default IP Address of Web Management Interface: The default IP address and Subnet Mask for the CPE mode and AP mode are as follows:

Mode IP Address Subnet Mask AP Mode

192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0  Default User Name and Password:

CPE Mode

192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 The default User name and Password for the root and admin accounts are as follows:

Mode Management Account User Name Password AP Mode Root Account CPE Mode

There are two system management accounts for AP & CPE modes to maintain the system, root and admin, and each has different levels of management capabilities. The root account is empowered with full privileges while the admin account is with partial ones; there is only one management account for AP mode, root. For more information on the privileges of these two accounts, please refer to Appendix A. System Management Account Privileges.

< AP Mode – Default Mode > Step 1: IP Segment Set-up for Administrator PC

Set a static IP address on the same subnet mask as WAB-3003 in TCP/IP of the administrator PC, such as the following example. Do not duplicate the IP address used here with the IP address of WAB-3003 or any other devices within the same network.

>> Example of IP Segment:

The valid range of IP address is 1 ~ 254. However, 1 must be avoided as it is already used by WAB-3003. Below depicts an example of using 100 (the underlined value can be changed as desired).  IP Address: 192.168.0.100  Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 8

4.2.6 Advanced Wireless Settings

The advanced wireless settings for the system’s VAP profiles allow customization of data transmission settings. The administrator can tune the following parameters to improve network communication performance if a poor connection occurs.  RTS Threshold: To control station access to the medium and to alleviate this effect of the hidden terminal problem, the administrator can tune this RTS threshold value. A lower RTS Threshold setting can be useful in areas where many client devices are associating with WAB 3003 or in areas where the clients are far apart and can detect only WAB-3003 and not each other. Fragmentation Threshold: A unicast frame larger than this threshold will be fragmented before transmission. If a significant number of collisions are occurring, the administrator can try to set a smaller value of the threshold to see whether it helps. A smaller value results in smaller packets but allows a larger number of packets in transmission. A lower Fragment Threshold setting can be useful in areas where communication is poor or disturbed by a serious amount of radio interference. 46

WAB-3003 108M 11g Outdoor PoE CPE/ AP/ Bridge Broadcast SSID: Disabling this function will prevent the system from broadcasting its SSID. If you disable broadcast of the SSID, only devices that have the correct SSID can connect to the system.  Wireless Station Isolation: By enabling this function, all stations associated with the system can only communicate with the system.  WMM: The default is Disable. Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) is a Quality of Service (QoS) feature that prioritizes wireless data packets based on four access categories: voice, video, best effort, and background. Applications without WMM and applications that do not require QoS are assigned to the best-effort category, which receives a lower priority than voice and video. In short, WMM decides which data streams are the most important and assign them a higher traffic priority. < To receive the benefits of WMM QoS > - The application must support WMM. - You must enable WMM in this system. - You must enable WMM in the wireless adapter in your computer.  IAPP: IAPP (Inter Access Point Protocol) is a protocol by which access points share information about the stations that are connected to them. By enabling this function, the system will automatically broadcast information of associated wireless stations to its peer access points. This will help wireless stations roam smoothly among IAPP-enabled access points in the same wireless LAN.  802.11g Protection: When enabled, the associated 802.11g stations will benefit from this function since their transmission speed will not be affected by the surrounding 802.11b stations. 47

Trust List Broadcast can be enabled to let other WAB-3003 (with L2 firewall feature) learn the trusted MAC/IP pairs to issue ARP requests. Static Trust List can be used to add MAC or MAC/IP pairs to issue ARP request. Other network nodes can still send their ARP requests; however, if their IP appears in the static list (with different MAC), their ARP requests will be dropped to prevent eavesdropping.

Advanced Wireless Settings

The administrator can set the RTS threshold and fragmentation threshold on this page. In most circumstance, the default settings can meet general requirements. If occasionally wireless network needs to be tuned, the following parameters will assist with that purpose.  RTS Threshold: To control station access to the medium and to alleviate this effect of the hidden terminal problem, the administrator can tune this RTS threshold value. A lower RTS Threshold setting can be useful in areas where many client devices are associating with WAB 3003 or in areas where the clients are far apart and can detect only WAB-3003 and not each other. Fragmentation Threshold: An uncast frame larger than this threshold will be fragmented before transmission. If a significant number of collisions are occurring, the administrator can try to set a smaller value of the threshold to see whether it helps. A smaller value results in smaller packets but allows a larger number of packets in transmission. A lower Fragment Threshold setting can be useful in areas where communication is poor or disturbed by a serious amount of radio interference. 89
