Chapter 1 Introduction
Introduction
The IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless 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 802.11b/g/n Wireless CPE
supports higher bandwidth with longer range for outdoor applications.
IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless 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
802.11b/g/n Wireless 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.

* Since the IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless CPE covers “AP mode”, “Wireless Client mode”,
“Bridge mode” as well as “AP Repeater mode”, the following steps are categorized for
convenience reading to describe how to set each mode after successful log-in.
AP Mode
1. Choose Wireless > Basic Settings. The default is AP mode already. Here, you can set
the parameters to optimize your application, or you can leave them as the default. Click
Apply to save the parameters.
Note:
In the example here, we only change the “Wireless Network Name (SSID)” as
“Join_me”, and later, we will show you if AP mode works correctly. In addition,
for better coverage of the AP, you may also use an external antenna; if so,
remember to set the antenna setting from “Internal (8 dBi)” to “External
Page 13
(N-Type)” after your external antenna is successfully installed.
To be reminded that you are able to choose “External (N-Type)” only when you
have well done installing the external antenna; otherwise, it might cause
damage IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless CPE itself.
2. If security is required, open Wireless > Profile Setting and enter “VAP Profile 1
Settings” as below.
You may set the parameters like “Network Authentication” and “Data
Encryption” for more secure network communication in your application.
Click Apply to
save the parameters.

“Remote AP MAC Address 1” field and click “Apply”.
Note:
Bridge uses the WDS protocol that is not defined as the standard thus compatibility
issues between equipment from different vendors may arise.
Moreover, Tree or
Star shape network topology should be used in all WDS use-cases (i.e. if AP2 and
AP3 are specified as the WDS peers of AP1, AP2 should not be specified as the
WDS peer of AP3 and AP3 should not be specified as the WDS peer of AP2 in any
case). Mesh and Ring network topologies are not supported by WDS and should be
avoided in all the use cases.
3. Repeat the above procedures to configure the remote IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless Outdoor
CPE.
4. Use ping to check whether the link between the two bridges is OK.
