WDS Settings
WDS - Bridge mode requires additional Access Points also
functioning in WDS - AP mode. A WDS enabled Bridge connects to
another WDS-Access Point via MAC addresses. Enter the MAC
addresses of the Access Points with WDS enabled into the
corresponding fields that you wish to connect to.
For WDS connections to work properly, the MAC address
associations must also be configured on each individual WDS
enabled Access Point or Bridge, not just the one you are currently
configuring. For example, if you are connecting three WDS APs or
Bridges, AP/Bridge 1 must have AP/Bridge 2 and AP/Bridge 3’s
MAC address conifgured, while AP/Bridge 2 has AP/Bridge 1’s and
AP/Bridge 3’s MAC, and AP/Bridge 3 has AP/Bridge 1’s and
AP/Bridge 2’s MAC configured.
Encryption can be used to secure your WDS connections. If you choose to use encryption (recommended), it is
important that you set the same security key setting on all connected WDS enabled Access Points. Click Next to
continue.

2.4GHz Wi-F Settings: WDS
WDS Settings are only available in the WDS-Bridge (WDSBridge) operational mode. If you are not using the WDSBridge operational mode please disregard this section. WDS
mode allows the Range Extender / Bridge to interconnect
with other WDS enabled Access Points (such as the Amped
Wireless APR175P ProSeries Wi-Fi Access Point/Router). WDS
allows you to extend your network by adding additional
wirelessly connected Range Extenders, also referred to as a
repeater, in addition to Bridges.
For WDS connections to work properly, the MAC address
associations must also be configured on each individual WDS
enabled Access Point or Bridge, not just the one you are currently configuring. For example, if you are
connecting two WDS-APs and one WDS-Bridge, AP 1 must have AP 2’s and the Bridge’s MAC address
conifgured, while AP 2 has AP 1’s and the Bridge’s MAC, and the Bridge has AP 1’s and AP 2’s MAC configured.
Every WDS connected device must also be using the same wireless channel as all other WDS connected
devices.

be able to see or access devices or files on Wired Port #2 (VLAN 2). VLAN IDs can range between 1 and 4094.
Tagged / Untagged – VLAN enabled ports are generally categorized as tagged or untagged. This is also referred
to as trunk or access. The purpose of tagging a port is to pass traffic for multiple VLANs, whereas an untagged
port accepts traffic for only a single VLAN. For example, if you are connecting a switch to one of the Wired
Ports on the Range Extender / Bridge, this would generally be a tagged port since it will be connecting to a
network with multiple VLANs. To successfully configure a tagged port both ends must have the following in
common: encapsulation and VLAN settings. Both sides should be configured identically for the VLAN to work
properly.

Local Network (LAN): Domain Redirect
Domain Redirect allows access to the web
interface via a simple web URL:
http:setup.ampedwireless.com Disabling
Domain Redirect will require that you
access the web menu using the IP address
instead of the web URL. It is recommended
that you note your IP address before disabling this mode, or refrain from disabling Domain Redirect. If you are
no longer able to access the web menu and you do not have the IP address of your device a hardware reset

Internet Network (WAN): Internet Network (WAN) IPv4
WAN settings only apply to Firewall Range Extender mode.
The Firewall Range Extender Basic Setup will assist in the
initial configuration of your WAN settings, however, in the
case that you wish to adjust settings manually, the options on
this page provides you with the tools to do this easily.
Select your WAN Connection type from the drop down menu:
Manual IP (Static): For Internet connections where the Internet provider does not provide you with an IP
address automatically. If you know the IP address and DNS settings that your Internet provider uses, select this
option.
Automatic/Dynamic (DHCP): This is the configuration type most often used by Internet providers. Automatic
configurations are used by both DSL and Cable as well as other providers. Under the Automatic Configuration
method, the Internet provider will assign your Firewall Range Extender an Internet IP address automatically.
If for some reason you do not get an IP address and you know that your Internet provider uses DHCP, try
resetting your modem. Remove the power adapter from the modem as well as the backup battery (if
90
REB175P USER’S GUIDE
available). Wait about 30 seconds and then power the modem back on. You can run through the Basic Setup
Wizard again to see if that fixes your Internet connection issues.
DNS Settings: Domain name server settings can be set automatically by your Internet service provider or set
manually to a DNS server of your choice.
Clone MAC Address: The Firewall Range Extender can use a MAC address that you define as its own. This is
often used when an Internet Provider only authorizes one MAC address to access the Internet. Cloning the
MAC address will make it so that the cloned MAC address is the only MAC address seen by the Internet
Provider.

Advanced Settings
These settings apply to the Local Network and your Internet
Connection Network. If you are not familiar with these settings,
please refer to a network administrator to avoid putting your
network at risk.
Enable uPnP: Universal Plug and Play is a network feature that
allows uPnP enabled devices to “just work” with each other when
connected to the same network. UPnP can work across different
network media, such as an Ethernet connection or wireless connection. With UPnP enabled, network devices
may change security settings within the Firewall Range Extender’s firewall to allow access over the Internet. By
default, UPnP is disabled to avoid exposing your network to security issues.
Enable Web Server Access on WAN (Remote Management): Allows access to the Web Menu over the Internet.
Enable Ping Access on WAN: Allows users to ping the WAN interface IP address from the Internet.
Port Scan: Monitors requests to a range of server port addresses to block incoming DoS attacks.

Enable IPsec pass through on VPN connection: Allows the IP security protocol suite to pass through on a VPN
connection.
Enable PPTP pass through on VPN connection: Allows the PPTP protocol suite to pass through on a VPN
connection.
Enable L2TP pass through on VPN connection: Allows the L2TP protocol suite to pass through on a VPN
connection.
802.1d Spanning Tree (STP): A network protocol that ensures a loop-free topology for networks that have
Ethernet bridges. The STP prevents bridge loops and allows a network design to include redundant links to
provide automatic backup paths if active links fails.
Zero Configuration: Assigns an IP address (169.254.x.x) to any connected device that cannot obtain an IP
address or when there is no DHCP server present on the network. This allows all devices to have the same
subnet to enable communication with each other. Connecting devices must be in DHCP Client mode (not
Static) for this feature to work.

ADVANCED SETTINGS
Many of the features in the Advanced Settings menu are available only in Firewall Range Extender operational
mode.
Port Forwarding
Port Forwarding is only available in Firewall Range Extender mode.
Port Forwarding is a rule that tells the Range Extender that if a
specific type of request comes in on a specific port, then that request
should be forwarded to a specific device on the private network.
Port Forwarding is often used for setting up servers, cameras and
other devices that require remote access.
Enable Port Forwarding: Enables designated ports to begin forwarding.
IP Address: The IP address of the device behind the Firewall that is being designated for Port Forwarding.
Protocol: Select UDP, TCP or Both for the protocols to be forwarded.
Port Range: Select a range of ports for the designated IP address that you wish to be forwarded.
Comment: Create a name that you can use to easily identify this Port Forwarding entry.
94
REB175P USER’S GUIDE
Port Filtering
Port Filtering is only available in Firewall Range Extender
mode.
Port Filtering is a security measure that prevents users from
using specific ports for reasons other than what those ports
were originally intended for. For example, TCP port 21 is traditionally used for FTP. However, there is nothing
stopping a user from using port 21 for purposes other than FTP access. By enabling Port Filtering on TCP port
21, only FTP communications would be allowed. No other types of communication would be allowed on this
port.
Hackers may sometimes scan for all open ports on your network as a method of hacking into your network.
Port Filtering and other firewall features help to prevent this from happening.
To set up Port Filtering, select a range of ports you wish to filter. If you are trying to filter a single port, enter
the port number twice (For example, Port 21: 21 – 21). Select the Protocol of the port you are filtering. If you
do not know what protocol you wish to filter, select “Both”.
95
REB175P USER’S GUIDE
DMZ (Demilitarized Zone)
DMZ is only available in Firewall Range
Extender mode.
A DMZ is a network location or IP Address
that is not protected by the firewall. When
enabling DMZ, it is important to note that the device on the IP Address designated as part of the DMZ does not
have any protection from the Range Extender’s firewall. The device’s only security would be those built into
the operating system.
As a general safety rule, devices placed on the DMZ should not have any other network connections to any
other devices.
Enable DMZ: Enables the Demilitarized Zone.
DMZ Host IP Address: The designated IP Address of the network device to have unrestricted access through
the Range Extender’s Firewall.
96
REB175P USER’S GUIDE
Denial of Service
Denial of Service is only available in Firewall Range Extender
mode.
A Denial of Service attack is an attempt by a user (or users) to
make a server’s or network’s services unavailable. The user
sends a server multiple requests with false return addresses.
The server will attempt to respond by sending a request back to
the user; however, since the address is false, the server will wait
for a response before closing the connection. When multiple
requests like this occur, servers may often get overloaded with
too many requests and stop functioning altogether. This is a typical DoS attack, although DoS attacks may not
be limited to this type of attack.
The Firewall Range Extender can assist in preventing these types of attacks by scanning the network for
patterns of activity that represent DoS attacks. If a pattern comes in frequently, the Firewall Range Extender
can attempt to block messages containing that pattern and thus protect the server from becoming overloaded
and unresponsive.

IDS (Intrusion Detection System)
Monitor network activities for malicious activities and connection violations. IDS will allow you to block devices
that repeatedly fail to connect. When “Block devices” is enabled and a device attempts to connect to the AP,
but fails three times within sixty seconds, the device will be blocked for a duration of thirty minutes. (IDS works
with WPA based authentication and 802.1x authentication. IDS will not work with networks using WEP
security).
IDS can also email you to notify you of these failed login attempts. You will need to set up your email
notification settings before notifications will work.

Check that your antennas are fastened tightly to the antenna connectors.
The wireless channel that your network is using may be congested. Change the channel for the Source
router’s 2.4GHz network or 5.0GHz network. The Range Extender should automatically reconnect to
your networks new settings, however if it does not, simply reconfigure the Range Extender to your
network.
The network adapter that you are using may have poor range, older technology with slower speeds or
may need a driver update.
Your computer may be using an older Wi-Fi adapter with lower speed limits and range capabilities
(802.11b/g/n).
To achieve 802.11ac Wi-Fi speeds for your extended network, it is necessary to extend an 802.11ac
Wi-Fi router. Check that your Source Router is an 802.11ac router with speeds at or above AC1750.
Extending a router with slower Wi-Fi speeds, such as 802.11n or AC750 or AC1200 will result in slower
Wi-Fi speeds for your extended network.

Troubleshooting: Web Menu Feature Issues
My Wireless Access Schedule is being erratic and not working at the correct times.
a.
You need to adjust your System Clock from the Administration web menu page.
Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is not working. Push button configuration does not detect the connection.
a.
The Range Extender / Bridge supports WPS connections however some companies may use proprietary
code for their own push button configurations. Try connecting using the Windows wireless utility or
Mac wireless utility instead.
I have enabled Client Isolation and/or SSID Isolation, but I can still see the computers on my network.
a.
b.
Client Isolation and SSID isolation restricts network access for wireless devices only. If you have devices
connected to the wired ports of the Range Extender / Bridge or Router they will not be isolated.
To isolate the entire network from connecting wireless devices, enable the Internet Only feature when
configuring security settings for your Wi-Fi network.
126
REB175P USER’S GUIDE
Many of the features in the Web Menu are greyed out and cannot be selected. For example, in Advanced
Features most features are not selectable.
a.
Certain features such as Port Forwarding and DMZ are only available when the Range Extender / Bridge
is in Firewall Range Extender mode. Ensure that you are using the proper operational mode for the
feature you wish to enable.
I have configured MAC Address Filtering and/or RADIUS servers, but they do not work for my Extended
Network.
a.
Each Wi-Fi Network (WLAN/SSID) must also have RADIUS servers or MAC Filters selected as an
Additional Authentication method in order for the feature to work. This can be done via the Web Menu
by accessing the Wi-Fi Settings tab and going to Security for either the 2.4GHz or 5.0GHz networks.
Select the specific SSID that you wish to configure and apply the MAC or RADIUS server setting in
Additional Authentication.
I have enabled Smart Handover, but it does not seem to be handing over the devices properly.
a.
Set the RSSI threshold to a lower number (i.e. 0 to -50) This will allow the Range Extender / Bridge to
handover the device when the signal strength between the device and the Range Extender / Bridge is
still moderately strong.
127
REB175P USER’S GUIDE
b.
Change the device to a device that supports the Smart Handover feature. Some older Wi-Fi adapters
do not support the Smart Handover feature.

Dispute Resolution / Arbitration
This section describes how you agree to resolve any disputes with Amped Wireless regarding these Terms of
Use or your purchase of any product from Amped Wireless and your use of that product. You and Amped
Wireless agree to the following resolution process.
To begin with, you agree that any claim that you might have against us regarding these Terms of Use or your
purchase of any Amped Wireless product or use of that product must be resolved through binding arbitration
before the American Arbitration Association using its Commercial Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator shall have
exclusive authority to the extent permitted by law to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the
interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of our agreement, including, but not limited to, any
claim that all or part of this agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall also have exclusive authority to
the extent permitted by law to decide the arbitrability of any claim or dispute between you and Amped
Wireless.
Because we prefer to resolve our issues with you directly, you agree to arbitrate with Amped Wireless only in
your individual capacity, not as a representative or member of a class. As such, your claims may not be joined
with any other claims and there shall be no authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or
brought by a purported class representative.
142
REB175P USER’S GUIDE
It is important that you understand that the arbitrator’s decision will be binding and may be entered as a
judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If the arbitrator rules against Amped Wireless, in addition to
accepting whatever responsibility is ordered by the arbitrator, we will reimburse your reasonable attorneys'
fees and costs.
It's important to us that we address any issues you might have promptly. To help us do that, you agree to
begin any arbitration within one year after your claim arose; otherwise, your claim is waived.
Unless you and Amped Wireless agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county where
you reside. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted
solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person
hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be
determined by the AAA Rules.
If your claim against Amped Wireless is for less than $10,000, Amped Wireless will pay all arbitration fees. If
your claim against Amped Wireless is for $10,000 or more, you are responsible for paying your own portion of
the fees set forth in the AAA’s fee schedule for consumer disputes, and Amped Wireless will pay all remaining
arbitration fees. If you believe you cannot afford the AAA’s fee, you may apply to the AAA for a waiver.
143
REB175P USER’S GUIDE
As an exception to this arbitration agreement, Amped Wireless is happy to give you the right to pursue in small
claims court any claim that is within that court's jurisdiction as long as you proceed only on an individual basis.
We would hope that our customer service agents could resolve any disputes you have with us without
resorting to arbitration. Before initiating any arbitration proceeding, you agree to first discuss the matter
informally with Amped Wireless for at least 30 days. To do that, please send your full name and contact
information, your concern and your proposed solution by mail to us at: 13089 Peyton Dr. #C307, Chino Hills,
CA 91709; Attn: Legal Department.
This Agreement and the rights of the parties hereunder shall be governed by and construed in accordance with
the laws of the State of California, exclusive of conflict or choice of law rules.
The parties acknowledge that this Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce.
Notwithstanding the provision in the preceding paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, any
arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of this Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act
(9 U.S.C., Secs. 1-16).
