3. Network Application Illustrations
Only a few simple steps are required to set up the NetPassage 18A and share your
broadband Internet among your wired and wireless network infrastructure.
4. Hardware Installation
3.
Before starting, please verify that the following is available:
•
Cable/ADSL modem with RJ45 connection
•
•
CAT5/5e networking cable
At least one computer is installed with a Web browser and a wired
or wireless network interface adapter
•
TCP/IP protocol is installed and IP address parameters are properly
configured on all your network’s nodes
Before fixing the antennas, check the markings on the antennas.
See Section 4a on how to recognize ‘G’ and ‘AG’ antennas.
•
At the Network name (SSID)
field, type in ‘compex’ ( the
factory
default
of
NetPassage 18A ). Click OK.
4a. How to recognise the ‘G’ and ‘AG’ antennas when fixing them
NetPassage 18A (namely, NetPassage 18A 1A11US, 1A13EU, 1B11US, 1B13EU)
has two types of antenna: dual-band ‘AG’ antenna and single-band ‘G’
antenna (as shown in the figure below).
It is important to fix the antennas correctly otherwise the router won’t function
properly. If you see no marking on the antenna, it indicates the single-band ‘G’
antenna being fixed to the right (Ant-2) of the NetPassage 18A. Otherwise the
‘A’ marking indicates the dual-band ‘AG’ antenna that is fixed to the left (Ant1) of the router.
