Safety Warnings
!Warning! For your safety please read the following warning notices and instructions.
Safety, Approvals and Regulatory Domain
Information
Safety Instruction
For your protection, please read and observe all safety instructions before operating this
system and keep this sheet and any additional instructions for future reference.
Installation and Use
OBSERVE WARNINGS: All warnings in the operating instructions should be carefully
followed. Do not make any modifications to the WESII unit, Power Injection Module
(PIM), or any other KBC Networks electronic device, as the unit(s) will no longer comply
with legal regulations and therefore void its warranty.
WATER AND MOISTURE: The WESII unit is weatherproof provided it is installed in
accordance to the mounting details listed in section 2.4.3. However, further protection
or housing is suggested for harsh environments, as moisture damage voids its warranty.
The PIMs used in this system are NOT weatherproof. None of the modules in this system
are waterproof and should never be submerged. Severe electrical shock, personal injury
or damage to the equipment may result.
POWER SOURCE: Connect the equipment to a power source only of the type described
on the operating instructions or as marked on the equipment. Excessive or insufficient
current or voltage can cause extended trouble-shooting or even damage that could
negate its warranty. The power supply cable should not be modified/extended due to the
ability to use up to 100m of power over Ethernet cable. In addition, Ethernet cable
running from the PIM to the WEM should be kept separated from high-voltage cables
and/or transformers.
ATTACHMENTS: Use only KBC Networks’ supplied or recommended Power Injection
Modules, Power Supplies, Cat5 Cables and weather seals and plugs.
WHEN NOT IN USE: Unplug the power if the equipment is left unattended or unused
for long periods of time or during lightning storms.
REPLACEMENT PARTS: When replacement parts are required, use only replacement
parts specified by KBC Networks. Unauthorized substitutions may result in damage to
the system and could void the warranty.

1. Overview
1.1 Introduction
This manual covers all the functions of the products that form KBC Networks’ WESII
Series. The WESII Wireless Ethernet System is a wireless transmission system that
provides a cable less transmission path for an Ethernet channel. They are designed for
use in a wide range of operating temperatures in non-environmentally conditioned,
outdoor applications. The primary function of the system is to replace Ethernet cables
where it is not practical or cost-effective or where it is beyond distance limitations.
WESII has been specifically designed to transmit constant streaming video but can also
be used to send and receive standard Ethernet data packets or to operate as a WiFi
Access Point. The units can be configured as a long range point-to-point wireless bridge
or as a point-to-multipoint receiving antenna communicating to numerous transmitting
Client/Station devices. This manual covers all operations and functions of the point-topoint and point-to-multipoint systems.
1.1.1. WESII
The KBC WESII Series is a wireless transmission system that operates in the license free
2.4GHz & 5GHz bands and also in the 4.9GHz Public Safety band (only available in the
US). The units are available as PoE or non-PoE with a range of antennas to suit
applications. The units will support throughput of up to 99Mbps due to MIMO technology.

8. Cable Assembly
8.1 Strain Relief Assembly
1.
2.
3.
4.
Thread the Cat 5 cable through the hole in the gland.
Pull the cable through and crimp on the RJ45 connector – see section 8.2
Connect the RJ45 connector into the WESII’s LAN port.
Tighten the clamping nut until the Ethernet cable is secured in the connector until it
is hand tight.
Note: the RJ45 connector does move slightly within the LAN port on the WESII unit this
allows the RJ45 connector to be connected to the Ethernet port more easily.
8.2 Configuring the Cable.
Note: The total length of cable from the WESII to the Ethernet device cannot exceed
100m (325 feet); however, for a non-PoE WESII unit the PIM can be located anywhere
along the overall 100m of cable. KBC Networks recommends shielded Ethernet cables for
the cable connecting the PIM to the WESII unit. Any cable exposed to the elements
should also be outdoor rated.
1.
2.
Determine the length of cable that will be required and where the PIM will be
located.
Slide the weatherproof connector over the cable jacket before crimping the
connector. See Section 8.1 for the assembly instructions. If needed, see below for
color-code standards to configure the correct type of Ethernet cable.
Note: Ethernet standard straight-through cable configurations used must be configured
to one of the Ethernet standards (568-A or 568-B) in order for the WESII system to
operate efficiently. Any deviation from one of the two standard configurations can lead to
undesired activity.

Step 7:
Ensure that the Auto box is checked, the unit will chose the most suitable
channel. For systems with more than one point-to-multipoint link on a site
you will need to manually set the channel frequency for each group of Host
and Clients so that each group operates on a different frequency. See
Section 11.2.6.1 Manual setting for details of how to manually set the
channel frequency.

Step 9:
Ensure that the Channel Spectrum Width is on 20/40M & ensure that the
Remote AP-ESSID is set to the same as the Host unit for each of the Client
units in the group. For a site with multiple, point-to-multipoint systems
you will need to assign separate SSID for every group of Host plus Client
units.
Ensure this is the same as the
Host unit you want to connect
to.
Ensure this is on 20/40M
Step 10:
Select Site Survey to find the WESII Host you want to connect to.

Step 12:
The Host IP address should now appear in the Remote AP-Lock to MAC
address window. The Client unit will pick up the Host unit’s frequency automatically. You
now have a connected link.
Host MAC address selected that the
Client is now connected to.
Note: it is recommended that you write down all the MAC addresses and SSIDs used in
the application for future reference.
Step 13:
The WESII units will take approximately 2 minutes to connect to each
other. Once a connection has been made the RSSI LEDs on the back of the
units will light to show the strength of the connection. See Section 7.
Step 14:
Repeat the process for every Client that needs to be connected to the
Host.
Step 15:
You will now be able to connect to the Host unit via the Client across the
link that has been set up. To do this open another tab on your web
browser and access the Host on its 192.168.1.200 default address.
Unless a more advanced set up is desired, the antennas are configured for installation at
this point. For advanced configuration see Section 11.

10 Installing on site
Once you are happy with the basic Host and Client(s) set up as described above the
units can be installed on site. It is recommended that all units are set up prior to
installation on site although frequencies may need to be adjusted if they have been
manually set if there is interference on certain channels. See Section 11.2.6.1
Interference Analyzer for instructions of how to carry out a frequency site survey using
the ‘Interference Analyzer’ tool on a Host unit to determine frequencies already in use on
a site.
10.1 Line-of-sight
It is important that there is proper line-of-sight between each Host and associated
Client(s). Line-of-sight is NOT just a single clear view running between the two points
like a laser beam. Line-of-sight includes the Fresnel Zone; think of being able to drive a
double decker bus between the two points without anything being in its path. If trees or
any other obstacle are blocking part of the Fresnel zone, the wireless system may not
transmit the signal the required distance.
In a situation like this, the transmit and receive antennas need to be mounted on higher
poles to get above the trees.

10.3 Cable lengths when installing WESII units
When installing the WESII units the total combined length of cables for any configuration
must not exceed 100m.
Note: The type of Cat5 configuration may be determined by the LAN port of the Ethernet
device. If the port is a 10/100 port, you may require a crossover cable. A crossover
cable is not necessary if the two PIMs connect into an Ethernet switch.
Most cables used to connect the WESII system are configured using a straight-through
color code.

10.4 Aligning the WESII units
For each WESII radio in the system, carry out the following steps:
•
•
•
Ensure the WESII unit is powered either by the PIM for non-PoE units or a PSE
(eg.Ethernet switch) for PoE units. The WESII unit’s power LED should be green,
ensure that the cable into the LAN port is seated properly.
Align the Client unit(s) to the Host unit so that they are pointing directly towards
each other.
The RSSI level of the link needs to be between 40 – 50dB if possible; to check
this either:
o Look on the back side of the WESII unit to determine the RSSI LED status
and re-position if necessary to obtain the best RSSI signal strength, or
o On the Client unit in the ‘Status’ page of the GUI click on the <Align>
button to determine the RSSI level and re-position as necessary. For
further information see Section 11.2.1.5 Align.
10.5 Configuring IP addresses on a site
When installing multiple point-to-point or point-to-multipoint groups on one site, it is
important to ensure that each piece of equipment has a unique IP address. To change
the WESII unit’s IP addresses from their default (192.168.1.200 – Host, 192.168.1 201
– Client) see Section 11.2.6.1 Manual setting.

10.6 Replacing / Adding a WESII Module from/to the Existing
Application
10.6.1 Replacing a WESII Host unit
The WESII Host/AP connects to its Client(s) based on its MAC Address. A point-to-point
Host/AP can connect to one Client MAC address only. A point-to-multipoint Host/AP can
connect to multiple Clients.
If a Host/AP is being replaced, the Client(s) with which it is required to communicate
must also be re-configured within WESII Client’s System page to ensure that the correct
MAC address is selected for the new Host/AP.
In addition, if adding a new Host/AP to an existing application the Host/AP must be
configured to an available frequency not being used by the existing system.
10.6.2 Replacing a WESII Client unit
If a Client is being replaced, or added to a point-to-multipoint network, it’s SSID,
Country Code and channel spectrum width settings must be configured to match the
Host/ AP configuration with which it wants to connect.
If a Client is being replaced in a point-to-point network see Section 9 to reconfigure the
link.

See Section 7 for the WESII LED boot up process.
11.1.3
Accessing the GUI via a Web Browser
The computer used to access the WESII GUI must be set to a static IP address on the
same subnet as the WESII unit. The WESII default configuration is on the 192.168.1.x
subnet (refer to any provided documentation for the exact IP address for the individual
unit) therefore the computer must also be set to a 192.168.1.x IP address if the unit is
still on its factory set configurations.
Once the computer’s IP address is confirmed, open a web browser such as MS Internet
Explorer® or Mozilla Firefox®. Type in the Host/AP (192.168.1.200 default) or Client
(192.168.1.201 default) IP address in the address bar at the top of the web browser. If
the IP is correct and the link activity is established, the browser will prompt you to enter

Wireless Mode: This shows whether the unit is either set as a Station (WESII Client) or
Access Point WDS (WESII Host/AP).
Note: Host/APs and Clients are pre-set in the factory and cannot be changed.
MAC: Each Ethernet device has a unique MAC (Media Access Control) address. This
number should be used to track and reference the WESII units. All single point Host/APs
are locked to one Client MAC address only. If a replacement Client is deployed, its MAC
address must be entered into the Host/AP in order to connect.
LOCAL AP SSID: This displays the SSID (Service Set Identifier) chosen on the ‘BASIC
WIRELESS – Radio 1’ interface page.
Frequency: This displays the frequency used for the Host/AP to connect to the Client.
The Client will automatically connect to the same Host/AP frequency once it is locked to

Refresh: This button refreshes the ‘Bytes’, ‘Packets’ and ‘Errors’ information as well
statistics from the connected Client(s).
Align: When a Host and Client are connected the interface displays an alignment tool
button on the Client unit. The WESII antennas need to be aligned to their respective
mate. This tool can be used to identify the optimal mounting alignment.
Connected Stations: the number of devices connected to the Host is shown in
parenthesis. When a Client is connected to a single point Host/AP (or multiple Clients to
a point-to-multipoint Host/AP), the MAC address(es), Signal Strength(s), TX Rate(s), TX
CCQ(s), RX Rate(s) and Channel Width(s) will also be displayed. These are used to
identify if the signal strength and data rates are sufficient for a wireless connection
needed for a constant stream of video. In the screen shot below the important details
are defined:
MAC Address: the MAC address of the connected WESII unit.
Manual-WESII-Rev1403
Copyright © KBC Networks 2014
Page 104 of 140
www.kbcnetworks.com
WESII User Manual
Signal Strength: This is the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) ranging from 0100. The RSSI, is the measure of the strength of the RF connection between radios. The
RSSI number in the screen shot above is ‘70’ with the numbers within the parenthesis
showing the RSSI’s for the vertical (77) and horizontal (53) portions of the radio (ie. the
2x2 function of the MIMO). The vertical and horizontal RSSI figures can be used if two
separate directional antennas require individual alignment. Certain variables exist by
which this indicator is established. If line of sight, interference or other adverse site
specific conditions exist, the RSSI will be limited to a much lower number on the 0-100
scale. The RSSI in the above screen shot was attained when the radios were in very
close proximity on a bench test. When distance is increased between the radios and
other variables are introduced the number will drop significantly from the high numbers
shown. A reasonable RSSI for average deployments will be in the 40 to 50 range. A bare
minimum RSSI that KBC Networks recommends to maintain an RF link for constant
streaming video is no less than 20. If max TX and RX rates are established at lower
RSSIs then the system is performing as optimally as possible in a harsh RF environment.
Tx / Rx Rates: The rate of transmission and reception is auto-negotiated with the
opposite radio in the RF connection. The system attempts to establish a link at the
maximum rate of 162Mbps (in 40 MHz bandwidth) however, if the environment restricts
a connection at the maximum rate, the radios will attempt connection at the next lower
rate. It will continue to auto-negotiate the rate until a connection can be established.
Tx CCQ: Transmission Client Connection Quality – this value, shown as a percentage,
shows how effective the transmitted bandwidth being used is compared to the theoretical
maximum bandwidth.
Channel Width: The selected bandwidth from ‘BASIC WIRELESS – Radio 1’ is shown.
Other options include HT5 and HT20. The larger the bandwidth the lower number of
channel options available to use.
Local AP Statistics: The transmitted and received data packets over the RF connection
are recorded and viewable here. Any error will also be captured. The refresh button will
update the transmission statistics.
Local AP Errors: Any additional error and/or collision in the wireless traffic when a Host
is connected to a Client or group of Clients will be captured and displayed in this section
helping to identify the loss of data over the wireless link.

11.2.2.1 Services: SPANNING TREE PROTOCOL (STP) SETUP
If the WESII topology involves redundant paths where there are loops in the network,
Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) must be enabled. Any node can then be manually set as
the Root Bridge in order to identify which link STP will break. The lower the root priority,
the greater the significance of the link as it pertains to STP. If kept to default
configurations, STP will decide which link is to be broken based on a few variables (which
determine the highest root priority number). If another established link goes down for
any reason, STP will then enable the link that it chose previously to break.
11.2.2.2 Services: PING WATCHDOG
The ping watchdog serves as an option to perform an automatic power cycle if the unit
loses connection to a particular IP address. As soon as the system can no longer ping an
IP on the network under the conditions for which it is set, the unit will reboot. When
enabled the system will begin pinging the IP entered after the given interval and will
function as configured. It must be configured to wait
for a particular number of non-responses (typically five) before rebooting. It will reboot
then try the ping again. In the example below (a picture of the default configurations)
the unit will start to ping 192.168.1.1 after 60 seconds. Each ping can be set to the
desired interval between pings adding to or subtracting from the amount of time elapsed
before failure responses create the need for a reboot.
Note: the ping watch dog should never be used with a device that obtains its IP via
DHCP, it should only be used with devices using static IP addresses.
The main purpose for a ping watchdog is a quick solution to re-connect the RF link in the
event of interference, a network issue or where some other site specific adverse
condition locks up a Host/AP or Client. Rebooting the device can clear ARP (Address
Resolution Protocol) tables or resolve other network issues that might have forced the
unit to lock up. Rebooting may temporarily solve the issue but may not address an actual
network or other site specific condition. The tool gives the ability to re-establish a
wireless connection and streaming video in the event the unit loses the RF link to its
mate radio. Though this tool limits down time it may only mask the greater
environmental problems at the site. KBC Networks recommends trouble-shooting all
system and connection issues before resorting to the ping watchdog tool.
Note: If the IP selected is not on the network, is not powered up or some other issue
exists, the unit enabled with ping watchdog will continue to reboot until ping watchdog is

disabled. Please disable or reset the watchdog to a different IP in the event the
configured IP is known to be unreachable.
11.2.2.3 Services: NETWORK PING
The network ping tool enables an IP address to be to be pinged from within the WESII
unit which can help to confirm an Ethernet cable connection between the WESII unit and
the Ethernet device it is connected to. This tool can ping any IP on the network given
that the wireless unit has an established connection either wirelessly or over cable.
Click the ‘Ping Utility’ button and the following screen will appear.
Insert the IP address under ‘Destination IP/HOST’. The packet count & size can be
changed to a desired number of ping attempts and length of packet. If ‘continuous’ is
selected, the ping attempts will continue until ‘Stop’ button below is clicked. Continuous
pings will determine when a device has reconnected after either being rebooted or
having left the network.

Hard reset to defaults
A hard reset to default configurations can also be carried out on the WESII units. The
reset button can be found on the bottom side of the units between the mounting block
and the RJ45 Ethernet port.
While performing the reset process the LED on the left (RSSI4/STATUS) will be used to
determine when to hold and release the reset button.
1.
2.
remove the screw from the bottom of the case which plugs the
reset hole.
Using a small screw driver or something which can fit through the
hole, push in the reset button. The button will be approximately
1½”/38mm or so within the case. It is possible that you will need
to move the screwdriver up or down slightly to find the button.
Note: If the button is pushed in but then immediately released, the
unit will need to be powered down and rebooted and you will need to
try again.
3.
4.
5.
6.
When the button is pressed, the status LED will begin to flash rapidly
for approximately 5 seconds.
After a short period of rapid flash, the LED will turn off for a short pause
After a second or so the LED will turn on again and flash slowly and consistently so
that you can count the number of times it flashes.
Count exactly 3 flashes and then release
Note: If the button is held too long and not released on time the unit must be powered
down and rebooted and you will need to try again.
Recommended Ping Test:
Before starting Step 1 above, it is recommended to perform a constant ping to the
default IP of the unit to be reset. For instance, if the unit is a Host the command is: ping
192.168.1.200 -t (or ping 192.168.1.200/t also works). When the unit has successfully
reset to default and rebooted the ping will respond.
Note: It is common for the reset process to take two or three attempts due to the strict
parameters and needed learning curve. It is highly recommended to exhaust all other
forms of trouble-shooting before resorting to the reset to default configurations.
Note: If a single point Host is restored to default configurations, its MAC Lock function
must be manually reconfigured in order to link up to its Client. This feature is found on
the "Basic Wireless" section of the Host interface. The Client wireless MAC address must
be entered in the typical MAC format using colons in between each pair of characters
(ex: 00:01:1a:2b:3c:d5). The Client wireless MAC address is found on its status page
within the radio information but may be presented with dashes in between each pair of
characters (ex 00-01-1a-2b-3c-d5) which will be an invalid MAC if copied and pasted into
the Host MAC lock function. Other potential changes will also be reset to defaults,
contact KBC technical assistance for more details.

11.2.4 Topology
The system mapping capability of the topology page enables end users to view system
configuration and health all on one page. WESII topology shows the links between
different Station/Clients and Host/APs. System mapping supports dynamic changes in
the network so as the network changes it learns the new topology and updates this on
the topology webpage.
Along with system mapping, the topology view also displays all node information; this
can be viewed by holding your mouse over a particular node and radio. Node hover over
will display following node information:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Node IP address
Bridge MAC address
Root bridge information
Gateway information
Radio up/down status
Radio Host/Client role
Connected peer information
If any parameter eg. IP address , node name , SSID etc changes then topology reports
updates accordingly.
Note: Only KBC Network nodes are shown on the topology page.
If any node goes down within the network then it is shown in red after 100 seconds
(default). If it then remains down for more than 200 seconds (default) the node entry
will be removed from topology view. When the node is reconnected to the network it will
be added back to the topology.
Link connection lines are shown in different colors, these represent different ranges of

11.2.4.1 System Topology Setup
Set this to a ping-able
network device
Step 1:
All nodes within the network need to have a gateway address set on the
NETWORK - Basic Network page. This gateway must be a ping-able
network device that is connected to any one of the system node’s Ethernet
port. It does not have to be an actual gateway just a ping-able device – for
setting up this can be the PC you are connected to, you will also need to
turn off the firewall on the PC too. The system mapping uses ping to the
gateway as a mechanism for a low bandwidth means to confirm system
connectivity. If the system map were to be viewed from outside the
network, then this will be an actual gateway.

Step 2:
Once the WESII system can been configured and properly connected, a
generic system map will be drawn like the one below:
Note: a router symbol is used to represent the gateway. At this point, all nodes have the
same gateway IP address which is set to the gateway shown connected to the Client.

LAN Mode: This can be set to either DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) or
Static to allow the LAN IP, subnet mask and Gateway IP to be set as either static IPs on
the network or configured automatically.
If Static is selected enter the LAN IP, Netmask and Gateway IP using an available IP on
the network. KBC Networks recommends obtaining valid unused IPs from the network
administrator if the units will reside on the network. The WESII units can connect
independently from the network structure and are not required to be configured as static
IPs within the network subnet.
If DHCP is selected the LAN configuration will be set dynamically according to the
network availability. When DHCP is selected, the IP Address, Netmask and Gateway IP
configuration area will be grayed out to prohibit custom LAN settings being entered as
they will be obtained through the network. Once DHCP is saved an IP searching tool will
be required to determine the WESII unit IP address. A locator tool which shows the
Hostname can be used to distinguish the IP from other IP addresses on the network.
11.2.5.2 Basic Network: BANDWIDTH CONTROL
The WESII system can control throughput into the LAN port to the radio as well as out of
the radio to the LAN port, based on the desired throughput configurations. The default
setting is 1Mbps for each unit with this enabled.

Interference Analyzer: The interference Analyzer facility is located on the Host/AP unit
and can be used to determine whether there are other pieces of equipment in the vicinity
using the same frequencies as the WESII units use. By carrying out an interference
analyzer survey, congested channels can be avoided when selecting channels manually.
Note: Surveys to detect interference should only be conducted when directly connected
to the Host/AP, if connected to the Host/AP via the Client over the wireless link, the link
will be disconnected.
To carry out a frequency site survey select <Interference Analyzer>. The Interference
Analyzer is only found on the Host/AP unit and only available if a channel width of either
20M or 20/40MHz is selected.

The Local AP section is used to configure the Host/AP as an Access Point in order to
connect using a laptop/PC via WiFi connection. If the Host/AP is a single point Host/AP, it
cannot connect to a WESII Client and a computer client at the same time due to the
remote Client MAC lock. For a computer to obtain access via WiFi AP, the laptop/PC must
be configured to the security (WPA2) and cipher type (AES is default configuration)
selected. The SSID will appear in the computer’s available APs list unless “Hide SSID” is

12 Troubleshooting
12.1 Visual Inspection
If the WESII antennas can be accessed, the status LEDs can be investigated to
determine if there is an obvious answer to the problem.
12.1.1 LED Status
If the Link Activity LED is not illuminated then the WESII RF Module does not sense an
established cable link from the Ethernet device through the PIM to the WESII unit. Check
all cables and connectors as well as connections into and out of the PIM. For instance, if
the ‘IN’ side of the PIM is connected to the WESII, the device will receive its power but
the Link Activity LED will not be on.
If all four of the RSSI LEDs are not lit then the link may be unsatisfactory. Another
frequency or more alignment may be necessary. If connecting long range, visit the ‘Long
Range Parameters’ in the GUI for the Host/AP and Client and insert the approximate
distance in meters. See Section 11.2.7 Long Range Parameters.
WESII units operating with EMEA firmware may take longer times to connect on certain
frequencies see Page7 for details.
12.2 Test Cable Connections
12.2.1 Determine Link Activity
Obtain an IP locating device and search for the Host/AP and/or Client IP address. First
attempt to locate and/or ping the locally connected WESII device then attempt to ping
the remote WESII antenna. If the pings reply then the link is established to the local
unit. If the ping does not reply or the GUI is not accessible for the remote WESII
antenna then access the GUI for the local device and try the ping from within the WESII.
12.2.2 Test Wireless Device over Cable (without the WESII)
A bench test is always recommended in order to test the wirelessly connected devices
over a cable connected link. This verifies that the devices in line with the WESII are
operating. In addition, a test with the WESII in line while transmitting in a sterile
environment will help to ensure that the wireless system is working properly.
12.3 GUI Tools
See section 3 of this manual for the diagnostic tools available to use to determine the
problem and probable solution. Contact KBC Networks for technical assistance.

for approximately 5 seconds.
After a short period of rapid flash, the LED will turn off for a short pause
After a second or so the LED will turn on again and flash slowly and consistently so
that you can count the number of times it flashes.
Count exactly 3 flashes and then release
Note: If the button is held too long and not released on time the unit must be powered
down and rebooted and you will need to try again.
Recommended Ping Test:
Before starting Step 1 above, it is recommended to perform a constant ping to the
default IP of the unit to be reset. For instance, if the unit is a Host the command is: ping
192.168.1.200 -t (or ping 192.168.1.200/t also works). When the unit has successfully
reset to default and rebooted the ping will respond.
Note: It is common for the reset process to take two or three attempts due to the strict
parameters and needed learning curve. It is highly recommended to exhaust all other
forms of trouble-shooting before resorting to the reset to default configurations.
Note: If a single point Host is restored to default configurations, its MAC Lock function
must be manually reconfigured in order to link up to its Client. This feature is found on
the "Basic Wireless" section of the Host interface. The Client wireless MAC address must
be entered in the typical MAC format using colons in between each pair of characters
(ex: 00:01:1a:2b:3c:d5). The Client wireless MAC address is found on its status page
within the radio information but may be presented with dashes in between each pair of
characters (ex 00-01-1a-2b-3c-d5) which will be an invalid MAC if copied and pasted into
the Host MAC lock function. Other potential changes will also be reset to defaults,
contact KBC technical assistance for more details.
