Encryption
Encryption Key
Channel
Bandwidth
You may enable or disable either wireless frequency range independently. If both
wireless radios are disabled, the AirStation will not communicate wirelessly.
Each SSID may contain up to 32 alphanumeric characters.
The following types of encryption are available:
WPA2-PSK AES
WPA2 authentication with AES encryption is the best system available. Highly
recommended if all your wireless clients support it.
WPA-PSK AES
WPA authentication with AES encryption is an older system, but still secure.
WPA/WPA2-mixed PSK AES
For maximum compatibility, this system allows any combination of WPA, WPA2, and AES.
This encryption system works with most older clients but is not very secure.
No Encryption
No encryption means that anyone can log in to your wireless network, snoop on your
wireless traffic, and use your bandwidth. Not recommended for most users.
Note: To use WEP encryption, navigate to Wireless - 2.4 GHz (or 5 GHz) - Encrypt Wireless
Data and select WEP.
The encryption key is like the “password” for your wireless network. It may contain 8 to
63 case-sensitive alphanumeric characters (ASCII) or 64 hexadecimal characters (0-9 and
a-f, not case-sensitive).
For best results, select Auto Channel. The AirStation will seek and use the clearest
channel automatically. Alternately, you may choose a wireless channel manually.
In rural areas with little wireless traffic, a larger bandwidth setting may improve wireless
performance significantly. However, if you are in an urban area with much wireless traffic
and interference, the default bandwidth is recommended.

searches from wireless devices.
Enable or disable the main SSID (SSID 1) and sub SSID (SSID 2).
Enable to make wireless devices connected to the specified SSID be able to
communicate only with the Internet-side.
Select an authentication method for SSID 1 from below:
WPA/WPA2-mixed mode PSK
Allows the authentication compatible with WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK at the same time.
WPA2-PSK
Allows the authentication compatible with WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i).
WPA-PSK
Allows the authentication compatible with WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access).
No authentication
Connect to wireless clients without any authentication method.
You may use any of the following types of encryption:
AES
AES uses a pre-shared key to communicate with wireless devices. It is faster and more
secure than TKIP. AES can be selected only when WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK is selected for
wireless authentication.
WEP
WEP is a common encryption method supported by most devices. WEP can only be
selected when wireless authentication is set to No Authentication. Note that WEP’s
encryption is weak, and networks protected with WEP are not much more secure than
those with no encryption at all. Not recommended for anyone with private data that
needs to be kept secure.
No encryption
Data is transmitted without encryption. With this setting, anyone within range can
connect to your wireless network and might be able to access data on the network. Not
recommended for anyone with private data that needs to be kept secure. No Encryption
can be selected only when No Authentication is selected for wireless authentication.
A pre-shared key or passphrase is the password for your wireless connections. There are
two different formats for a pre-shared key. Use 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters (casesensitive) for an ASCII passphrase, or use 64 alphanumeric characters (0 to 9 and a to f,
not case-sensitive) for a hexadecimal passphrase.
Set the update interval for the encryption key between 0 and 1440 (minutes).
A WEP encryption key (passphrase) may have any of four different formats. An
ASCII passphrase may use either 5 or 13 alphanumeric characters (case-sensitive). A
hexadecimal passphrase may use either 10 or 26 alphanumeric characters (0 to 9 and a
to f, not case-sensitive).
Set the communication speed of multicast packets.
Set the beacon responding interval (1 -255) for which the AirStation responds to a
wireless device. This setting is effective only when power management is enabled for
the wireless device.
27
Wireless Client Isolation
Output Power
(5 GHz Only)
WMM Settings
WMM-EDCA Parameters
If enabled, the wireless client isolation blocks communication between wireless devices
connected to the AirStation. Wireless devices will be able to connect to the Internet
but not with each other. Devices that are connected to the AirStation with wired
connections will still be able to connect to wireless devices normally.
This sets the output of the wireless signal. Because the wireless transmission output and
signal distance range are nearly proportional, when the wireless transmission output is
reduced, the signal distance range also becomes shorter.
Check Display to set priorities only for a specific communication.
You don’t usually need to change these settings. Using the default settings is
recommended.
Priority
The following priorities may be applied to individual transmission packets: (Highest) 8,
(High) 4, (Normal) 2, and (Low) 1. From the queue, these packets are processed in order
of priority.
CWmin, CWmax
The maximum and minimum value of the contention window. The contention window is
used in the frame collision avoidance structure performed in IEEE802.11, and generally,
the smaller the value in the window, the higher the probability that the queue obtains
the right to send.
AIFSN
The interval to send frames. The unit of the AIFSN is a slot, just as the window defined
by CWmin and CWmax is. The smaller the interval of sending frames, the faster the
algorithm can restart. As a result, the priority of the queue is higher.
TXOP Limit
The period of time that the queue can use after obtaining the right to send. The unit is
32 ms. The longer this time, the more frames can be sent per right to send. However, the
queue may interfere with other packet transmissions. If TXOP Limit is set to 0 (zero), only
one frame can be sent per right to send.

Basic Rules
Enable to use any of the quick filters. Preconfigured quick filters include:
Prohibit NBT and Microsoft-DS routing
Enabling this blocks communication using these protocols from the WAN side to the
LAN side or from the LAN side to the Internet. You can configure this with PPPoE if you
select Use PPPoE client or Use IP Unnumbered for the method of acquiring IP Address, or if
Easy Setup identified a PPPoE connection during setup.
Reject ident requests
Enabling this option will answer ident requests from the Internet side with
corresponding rejection packets. Enable this option if you experienced slow transfer
speeds for network applications such as email, FTP, and web browsing. If you have
configured transfer of ident requests to the LAN-side computer in the address
translation settings (DMZ or TCP port 113), then that setting has higher priority, and
overrides this setting.
Block ping from Internet
If this is enabled, the AirStation will not respond to pings from the Internet side. You
can configure this with PPPoE if you select Use PPPoE client or Use IP Unnumbered for the
method of acquiring an IP address, or if Easy Setup identified a PPPoE connection during
setup.

Chapter 5 - Troubleshooting
Finding Your AirStation on the Network
By default, your AirStation is accessible on your local network at the IP address 192.168.11.1 with subnet mask
255.255.255.0. If this address has been changed and you don’t know the new address, you can reset the AirStation to its
default settings by holding down the reset button for 3 seconds.
You can also find your AirStation on the network with the AirStation Configuration Tool. This software will detect
AirStations on your network and give you the IP address and MAC address of each.
Eliminating Dead Spots in Wireless Coverage
If there are spots in your house with poor wireless coverage, try moving your AirStation. Sometimes even moving
it a few feet can eliminate dead spots in the area. Also, in Settings, make sure that the wireless output power of the
AirStation is set to 100% for maximum range.
If Your Wireless Connection Is Not Stable
Many household devices such as microwaves and cordless phones can interfere with some channels of the spectrum
available for the AirStation. If your wireless connection is unstable, change the wireless channel setting to Auto
Channel for both the AirStation and your wireless client device. The AirStation will then choose the clearest channel
automatically.
Make sure that the 5 GHz band is enabled. The AirStation is a dual band router, and either band will work well, but the 5
GHz band will usually have less interference.
Basic Router Troubleshooting
If your router is not behaving normally, begin by using the resetting all settings. With the unit connected to power, hold
down the reset button for 3 seconds. This will reset all settings to their defaults. The local IP address of the router will
now be 192.168.11.1 with a 255.255.255.0 subnet mask.
Connect your PC to one of the Ethernet ports on the router. Give the computer a manual (fixed) IP address on the same
subnet as the router such as 192.168.11.2. Set the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0.
56
Open a browser (such as Firefox) on your computer and type 192.168.11.1 into the URL window. Click Go. The router’s
settings page should open.
Enter the router’s username and password (“admin” and “password” by default).
You should now be able to reconfigure your settings and change your password for the router.
Basic Router Troubleshooting from a Mac
If your router is not behaving normally, begin by using the resetting all settings. With the unit connected to power, hold
down the reset button for 3 seconds. This will reset all settings to their defaults. The local IP address of the router will
now be 192.168.11.1 with a 255.255.255.0 subnet mask.
Connect your Mac to one of the Ethernet ports on the router. In System Preferences - Network - Ethernet, give the
computer a manual (fixed) IP address on the same subnet as the router such as 192.168.11.2. Set the subnet mask to
255.255.255.0.
If your Mac doesn’t have an Ethernet port, connect it to the AirStation wirelessly instead. The AirStation’s default SSID
and passphrase are printed on the setup card in the bottom of the router. Use this information to connect wirelessly.
Then, give the computer a fixed IP address on the same subnet as the router such as 192.168.11.2 and set the subnet
mask to 255.255.255.0.
Open a browser (such as Safari) on your computer and type 192.168.11.1 into the URL window. Click Go. The router’s
settings page should open.
Enter the router’s username and password (“admin” and “password” by default).
You should now be able to reconfigure your settings and change your password for the router.

Appendix B - Tutorials
Configuring the AirStation for Optimal Performance and Security
Some basic configuration tips to help improve your router performance and security.
Performance
• Put the AirStation in an elevated spot near the center of your house or coverage area, but away from other devices
that might cause interference.
• Experiment with strategic locations to improve signal strength. To reduce interference, keep the router away from
cordless phones and microwaves.
• In populated areas, leave automatic channel selection enabled and use 20 MHz wide channels. In less crowded areas,
40 MHz wide channels may offer better performance.
• Use QoS (quality of s ervice) to give priority to services that need the most data.
Security
• Use AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) as the encryption. WEP offers virtually no protection at all.
• Enable the built-in AirStation firewall to prevent certain types of network traffic from reaching your computer.
• Enable IP filtering to control what IP traffic to allow into and out of your network for further access control.
• If you are using an unsecure network (e.g. WEP) and you wish to keep that access point separate from the rest of the
network, enable SSID isolation. The unsecure router will still be able to access the Internet, but will be kept separate
from the rest of the network.
65
Configuring the Web Filter
You can apply a web content filter to prohibit access to sites that contain objectionable content. You can access the web
filter settings from the Easy Admin page, or by navigating to Security - Web Filtering.
You must first accept the Symantec terms of use before you can use web filtering.
Content Filter
You can select a filter level to set what kind of sites are blocked by the AirStation. To configure the content filter:
1
From the Web Filtering screen, enable content filtering.
2
Select the filter level.
3
Click Apply.
Websites Excluded from Filter
Excluded websites can be accessed regardless of the content filter in place. You can register up to 20 excluded sites. To
add a website:
1
On the Web Filtering screen, click Add under Websites Excluded from Filter to open the Exclude Website page.
2
Enter a website URL (e.g. www.google.com).
3
Click Add.
You will be returned to the Web Filtering page and the site will be displayed under Websites Excluded from Filter. You can
click Edit to make any changes, or Delete to remove the entry.
66
Computers Excluded from Filter
Excluded computers can access any website without being affected by the content filter. You can register up to 20
excluded computers. To add a computer:
1
2
3
On the Web Filtering screen, click Add under Computers Excluded from Filter to open the Exclude Computer page.

2
The Command Prompt appears. Type ‘ipconfig /all’ and hit Enter.
3
Locate the Physical Address. This is the computer’s MAC address.
67
Configuring Access Control
You can set up a schedule that dictates when a target computer on the network can (or cannot) access the Internet. To
configure this, navigate to Security - Access Control.
1
Open Access Control options by clicking Add.
2
Under Target Computer, enter the computer’s MAC address.
3
For the added computer, select Internet Access or No Internet Access.
4
Set the start time, end time, and day(s) for the computer’s permitted access time. “0” refers to midnight. For
example, if you set Computer A to have “Internet Access” from 7:00-10:00 on Thursday and Saturday, then
Computer A can only access the Internet during those times and would not be able to get online during other
times.
5
Click Edit Permitted Access Time to save the change.

Port Forwarding Basics
Port forwarding is a way of configuring the AirStation so that incoming data is automatically directed to specific IP
addresses on the network based on the data type.
Common Uses
Port forwarding allows computers outside your network to access computers on your LAN.
Some applications require port forwarding. For example, if you set up a game server, people outside the network will
need to join your server to play the game with you. But the AirStation will automatically block all outside attempts to
connect to your LAN. By setting a port number (the port receiving all the connection requests) and the IP address of
your game server, the AirStation can then automatically direct the connection requests to the game server, allowing
others to join and play.
You will need to know specific ports and corresponding protocols to successfully configure port forwarding. Most
network applications and services will have the required ports and protocols in their user documentation.
Security
The risk of having a port “open” to the Internet depends entirely on the application using the open port. If no application
is currently connected to the port, all communications to the port will be ignored. Enabling a firewall or other security
application will also help reduce security risk.
UPnP
For the most part, manually configuring port forwarding rules is unnecessary with the advent of UPnP (Universal Plug
and Play). UPnP is a protocol that allows a connecting application or device to automatically request and configure a
port for you.
Many applications require that UPnP be enabled both in the application’s settings and on the router. You can enable
UPnP for this AirStation in Settings at Applications - UPnP.
69
Setting Up Port Forwarding Rules
If UPnP is enabled, most programs will configure this for you automatically. Otherwise, you can manually set rules for
port forwarding. You can access port forwarding options by opening the AirStation’s Settings page and then navigating
to Security - Port Forwarding.
Creating Port Forwarding Rules
The AirStation can register up to 32 rules. Rules can be managed using the group feature.
Once a group has been created, you can add additional port forwarding rules to that group. You can also turn the group
of rules on or off as needed, or select a group of port forwarding rules to be disabled.
1
2
3
4
5
Create a new group name or add to an existing group.
Specify the WAN-side IP address the AirStation will forward ports from. Using the AirStation’s Internet IP address is
highly recommended, but you can manually enter an IP address.
Select a protocol and its corresponding port from the dropdown menu. For example, selecting HTTP will
automatically select TCP port 80. If you select any other protocol, you must select a valid port (from 1-65535)
as well. The default is TCP/UDP, along with a list of common protocols. If selected, the protocols will use a
corresponding port. You can also select Manual to manually enter a protocol and its corresponding port.
Enter the LAN–side IP address of the network computer to receive the forwarded data.
Enter the LAN-side port. This port will usually be the same as the port set under Protocol. If the port is different,
this port will be used to route traffic on the LAN rather than the WAN port. As before, you can select a port from
1-65535.
Once the rule has been added, it will be displayed under the Forwarded Ports section.
70
Managing Port Forwarding Rules
Individual rules cannot be turned off. Only a rule group can be shut off. You can click Edit to make any changes to
individual rules, or Delete to remove the rule entry.
Adding the AirStation to a Wireless Network
If you have an existing wireless network, you can connect the AirStation to extend the wireless network range. Other
client devices (wired and wireless) will be able to connect to the AirStation to use the Internet.
Set Up the AirStation as an Extender
The AirStation can rebroadcast an existing wireless signal to extend the range. However, the AirStation will maintain its
own SSID and security settings.
1
Set the mode switch on the back of the AirStation to “Bridge”.
2
Connect the AirStation to a computer with an Ethernet cable.
3
Move the AirStation next to the access point.
4
Open a web browser and enter the AirStation’s IP address (default is 192.168.11.100).
5
Enter the administrator password and log in.
6
Navigate to Wireless - WB.
71
7
8
If the access point supports WPS or AOSS, you can use either to connect the AirStation. Once the access point is
connected and its settings are displayed on the page, click Apply.
You can also manually select the access point. Click Search and select the access point from the available list of
detected wireless access points, then click Select. If the access point is not displayed, click Search again to refresh
the list. After you are returned to the WB page, set the wireless authentication and encryption to match that of the
access point, then click Apply.
The AirStation should now be connected as a wireless extender. Configure the AirStation’s SSID and security settings
on Wireless - 2.4 GHz (or 5 GHz). Once you are finished, you can disconnect the Ethernet cable and move the AirStation
to another location that is within range of the access point. Other devices can now connect to the AirStation to use the
Internet.
72
Saving and Restoring Settings with a Backup File
Once you have finished configuring your AirStation to your needs, you can save the current configuration to a backup
file. This file can be used to restore the AirStation’s settings when needed. For example, the AirStation will initialize its
settings after a hard reset. Instead of re-configuring the unit, simply use the backup file to restore its previous settings.
The backup file is not automatically updated when you make further AirStation configuration changes.
Save Settings to a Backup File
You can access Save settings by navigating to the Admin - Reset / Reboot.
1
2
On the Reset / Reboot page, select Back up settings.
Check Use password if you want to encrypt the backup file with a password. If you do, the system will ask for
the password when restoring settings with the backup file. The password may include up to 8 single-byte
alphanumeric characters and underscores (_).
3
Click Execute. The Save As dialog appears.
4
Click OK.
Once the file has been saved to your system, do not rename the backup file. If needed, you can put the file into another
folder.
73
Restoring Settings with a Backup File
Restore settings can be found on the same tab.
1
On the Reset / Reboot page, select Restore settings.
2
The Browse field appears. Click Browse... to locate the backup file on the system.
3
Click Execute. The Restore dialog appears.
4
Enter the password if prompted. The password will be the one set when the backup file was created.
Please wait as the saved settings are restored to the AirStation. When settings are restored, all values (e.g. IP address,
wireless encryption key, login, etc.) are changed to the ones saved in the backup file.
Note: The AirStation will not be able to restore settings if the backup file was created with a different version of the
AirStation firmware or a different product.
Replacing the AirStation
If an AirStation is no longer functional, you can replace it with another unit of the same model and use a saved backup
file to automatically populate settings on the new unit. The firmware on the new unit must be the same version as the
old unit when the backup file was created. If need be, downgrade the current firmware version to the previous one
before using the backup file.
74
Connecting Wireless Devices Using AOSS
You can use the physical AOSS button on your AirStation to easily connect wireless devices that support AOSS or WPS.
Consult your wireless device’s documentation for the location of its AOSS or WPS button.
If you already have a wireless network that was configured without using AOSS or WPS, connecting a new device with
AOSS will change its settings, disconnecting any previously connected wireless devices.
Pushbutton Method
Easily connect other wireless devices using the physical AOSS button.
1
Power on the AirStation.
2
Hold the physical AOSS button down for two seconds, then release it.
3
4
For the next 2 minutes, the AOSS LED will flash and the AirStation will automatically search for a nearby AOSS/WPS
device. The AirStation will automatically return to normal if a device isn’t found after 2 minutes.
Push the AOSS/WPS button on the wireless device. It should be automatically connected within 2 minutes.
You can repeat this for all AOSS/WPS devices you are attempt to connect with. If setup doesn’t work, open the
AirStation’s Settings page and ensure that the AOSS physical button is enabled.
Using AirStations with 2Wire Residential Gateways
AT&T Internet services (U-verse or ADSL) will often assign a 2Wire residential gateway device that serves as both the
modem and the router. To add an AirStation to this network, it is best to add the unit as a client device. This way the
AirStation will not conflict with the existing residential gateway settings such as the firewall or port forwarding.
If you would like to set the 2Wire access point as the client device, or you need more information on its settings, contact
AT&T technical support.
75
How to Use QoS
QoS (quality of service) is a feature that allows the AirStation to prioritize traffic by type. QoS applies to both upstream
and downstream data flow, and ensures consistent performance when using certain high-traffic applications, such as
video streaming.
Setting a QoS Priority Policy
1
Open the AirStation’s Settings page.
2
Navigate to Applications - QoS.
3
Enable QoS.
4
Enter the Upload Bandwidth. By default, this is set at 1,000 kbps, and values of 1–1,000,000 kbps may be entered.
Bandwidth will be limited by your maximum network speed.
5
Check the Enable box next to the Application Name to activate the policy.
6
Enter the Application Name for the policy. This may contain up to 32 alphanumeric characters.
7
8
9
Select the protocol for the policy’s incoming packets. For example, most VoIP and multimedia applications use
UDP, while the Internet and emails use TCP.
Enter the port number for the Destination Port. You can use any port between 1–65535. If you leave this field blank,
an arbitrary port will be selected. Most network applications and services will have their required protocols and
ports listed in their documentation.
Select a priority for this policy, and adjust the priority for others. For example, if you set VoIP as High, the
bandwidth priority of other policies should be lowered accordingly.
10Click Apply to save any changes.
76
Once an entry has been saved, you can make additional changes to any entry and click Apply to save them. A policy can
be turned on or off by checking the Enable box next to its Application Name.
