4.10 WAN Medium Type / Range Extender
Wired WAN and Wireless WAN
Wired WAN: In this mode, a network cable is directly connected to the WAN port. Wired
WAN is the default mode.
Wireless WAN: This mode can be used if your ISP provides a wireless connection
service or if you want to use it to amplify your existing wireless network.
SSID: SSID (Service Set Identifier) is the identity of the wireless device to which you
wish to connect the Medialink router. Click the “Open Scan” button to let the router
automatically search for an SSID.

25
MWN-WAPR300N
How to use Wireless WAN to create a Wireless Bridge from your
existing Wireless Router:
LAN IP Address: First make sure the LAN IP Address of your Medialink router is on a
different network segment than your connecting device.
If the LAN IP Address of your existing wireless router or ISP’s wireless device is
192.168.0.1 then the LAN IP Address of your Medialink router must be
192.168.XXX.YYY where XXX does not equal “0”. YYY can be anything from 1~254.
For example:
If Existing Wireless Router’s LAN IP – 192.168.0.1
Then Medialink Wireless Router’s LAN IP – 192.168.8.1 will work.
And Medialink Wireless Router’s LAN IP – 192.168.0.2 will not work.
The LAN IP of your Medialink Router can be set in “Advanced Settings” > “LAN Settings”
PLEASE NOTE: Since the WAN IP and LAN IP must be on different network segments,
the devices that connect to your Existing Wireless Router will not be able to
communicate to devices that connect to your Medialink router. Network printers, network
attached storage and other shared devices will not be accessible across the two
connections.
DHCP: Make sure the DHCP Server of your Medialink router is Enabled. It is Enabled by
default.
Scan for Networks: To connect to the existing Wireless Router, click “Open Scan” to
view the networks in your area as seen below:
26
MWN-WAPR300N
Note: The Signal Strengh is displayed in dBm (-). It is not a percentage. Therefore the
lowest number is the strongest signal.
Select Your Network: Select the SSID that you wish to have your Medialink router
connect to in order to extend the signal. The SSID and corresponding MAC Address and
Channel will be added to the fields above automatically. If your network’s SSID is hidden
you will have to manually enter it as seen below. Note that the channel and MAC have
been automatically copied.
27
MWN-WAPR300N
Security: The SSID (in this example), Security Mode, Algorithm and Key have been
manually entered and exactly match the settings on the existing wireless router. If you do
not know the Security Settings of your existing router, consult your existing router’s User
Manual.
Apply: Scroll down and click “Apply” to finalize the settings.
Power Cycle: After you are finished, power down both devices. Then power up the first
router (your existing wireless router) first and then power up the Medialink router second.
You will now have a stronger signal to which you can connect.
Placement: You may now unplug the power from the Medialink router and move it
wherever you have an open electrical outlet. Ideally, the Medialink router should be
placed halfway between your existing router and the ultimate location you wish to have a
stronger signal.

Second MWN-WAPR300N (used to extend your network)
LAN IP Address: 192.168.8.XXX where XXX is 2~254 (192.168.8.2 will be used in this
example)
SSID: <MUST Match First MWN-WAPR300N>
Channel: <MUST Match First MWN-WAPR300N>
Extension Channel: <MUST Match First MWN-WAPR300N>
31
MWN-WAPR300N
Wireless Security: <MUST Match First MWN-WAPR300N>

Power Cycle: After you are finished, power down both devices. Then power up the First
MWN-WAPR300N first and then power up the Second MWN-WAPR300N. You will now
have a stronger signal to which you can connect.
Placement: You may now unplug the power from the Second MWN-WAPR300N and
move it wherever you have an open electrical outlet. Ideally, the Medialink router should
be placed halfway between your existing router and the ultimate location you wish to
have a stronger signal.
32
MWN-WAPR300N
5.2 Wireless Security Settings
The Medialink router is secured by default using WPA-PSK with AES Algorithm for
encryption. The default Key is “password”. WPA-PSK is very secure and very compatible
with most devices. For stronger security, choose WPA2-PSK with AES. For even more
universal security that is still very strong choose Mixed WPA/WPA2-PSK with TKIP&AES.
Older devices may only support WEP security.
5.2.1 WPS Settings (Not Recommended)
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setting) makes it quick and easy to establish a secure connection
between the wireless clients and the router. The users only need to enter a PIN code or
press the WPS button for 1 second on the back panel to configure it without manually
selecting an encryption method or setting a Key.
33
MWN-WAPR300N

WPS Settings: To enable or disable WPS function. The default is “Enable”.

WPS Mode: PBC (Push-Button Configuration) and PIN code.

PBC: Select the PBC and click “Apply”, or press and hold the WPS button on the
back panel of the device for about one second. The WPS LED indicator will be
flashing for 2 minutes, which means the WPS is enabled. During this time
(flashing WPS LED), you can enable the wireless client to implement the
WPS/PBC negotiation between them. When the WPS connection is completed,
the LED indicator will be continuously lit. To add more clients, repeat the above
steps.)

PIN: If this option is enabled, you need to enter a wireless client’s PIN code in the
field and keep the same code in the WPS client.
NOTE:
The use of WPS function requires the wireless client to support this function. If all
devices do not support this function, then the devices that do not support it will not be
able to connect. We do not recommend using WPS as it is not as secure as using other
methods and creates compatibility issues in some networks.
5.2.2 WPA-PSK (WPA-Personal)
WPA authentication guarantees to protect wireless users’ data and only the authorized
network users will have access to the WLAN via the specified Network Key.

and then click “Add”, this port will be added automatically to the ID list. For other
well known service ports that are not listed, you can manually add them to the list.

Add to: Add the selected well-known port to the policy ID.
For Example: You want to share some large files with your friends outside of your local
area network, however, they are too big, and it’s not convenient to transfer them. Then,
you can build a FTP server on your computer and set the router’s port range forwarding
40
MWN-WAPR300N
to enable your friends to access to these files on your computer. Suppose that your FTP
server or your computer’s static IP address is 192.168.8.10, and you want your friends to
access the server through the default FTP port: 21 and use TCP protocol.
Please follow the steps below to configure.
1.Enter 21 in both start port and end port fields, or you can also select FTP from the
well-known service port and port 21 will be added to the corresponding fields
automatically.
2. Enter 192.168.8.10 in the LAN IP column, and then select “Both” as the protocol and
select “Enable” as shown below:
Then scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and click the “Apply” button to save the
settings.
Now, when your friends want to visit the FTP server, they only need to enter
ftp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:21 in their browser address field. Here, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx means your
router’s WAN IP address. For example, when your router’s WAN IP address is
24.65.128.52; your friends need to enter ftp://24.65.128.52:21 in the browser address
field.

need to use the format of WAN IP address: port (for example http :
//220.135.211.56:8080) to implement remote login.
2. If your WAN IP address starts and ends with 0.0.0.0, it means all hosts on the Internet
can implement remote Web management. If you change the Internet IP address to be a
range like this: 124.88.97.17-124.88.97.19, then only the computers at the IP addresses
of 124.88.97.17, 124.88.97.18 and 124.88.97.19 can access the Router to implement
remote web management.
For example:
If you want to configure the computer at the IP address of 124.88.97.17 to access the
router’s web-based utility via port 8080, please set the parameters as above.
Chapter 9 Routing Settings
9.1 Routing Table
This page shows the router’s core routing table.
The main duty for a router is to look for the best path for every data packet, and transfer
this data packet to a destination. In order to fulfill this function, many transferring paths,
(i.e. routing table) are saved in the router, for use when needed.
9.2 Static Routing
This screen is used to set the router’s static routing.
48
MWN-WAPR300N
A static route is a pre-determined pathway that network information must travel to reach
a specific host or network.

Destination Network IP Address: The destination host or IP segment you visit.

Subnet Mask: Enter the subnet mask, generally it is 255.255.255.0

Gateway: The entry IP address of the next router.
NOTE:
1. The gateway must be at the same network segment as the router’s LAN IP Address.
2. If the destination IP address is one host’s address, then the subnet mask must be
255.255.255.255.
3. If the destination IP address is an IP segment, then it must match with the subnet
mask. For example, if the destination IP is 10.0.0.0 then the subnet mask must be
255.0.0.0
49

in other functions (e.g. security settings) take effect.
10.2 DDNS
DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) is used to assign a fixed host and domain
name to a dynamic Internet IP address. Every time you access the Internet, the dynamic
domain name software installed on your host will tell the ISP’S host server its dynamic IP
address by sending messages. The server software is responsible for providing DNS
service and implementing dynamic domain name resolution.
50
MWN-WAPR300N

Main features:
1. Most ISP connections provide a dynamic IP address and the DDNS is used to
capture the changeable IP address and match it to a fixed domain. Then users
can have access to the Internet to communicate with others outside the network.
2. DDNS can help you to establish a virtual host in your home or company.


DDNS: Click the radio button to enable or disable the DDNS service.

Appendix 1 Glossary
Channel:
A distinct frequency range within the 2.4 GHz wavelength. There are 11 available
channels in North America ranging from 2412 MHz to 2462MHz.
SSID:
SSID (Service Set Identifier) is the network name shared by all devices in a wireless
network. Your network’s SSID should be unique to your network and identical for all
devices within the network. It is case-sensitive and must not exceed 20 characters.
Make sure this setting is the same for all devices in your wireless network.
WPA/WPA2 Encryption:
A security protocol for wireless networks that builds on the basic foundations of WEP. It
secures wireless data transmission by using a key similar to WEP, but the added
strength of WPA is that the key changes dynamically. The changing key makes it much
more difficult for a hacker to learn the key and gain access to the network. WPA2 is the
second generation of WPA security and provides a stronger encryption mechanism
through Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), which is a requirement for some
government users.
