4 Configuring the Advanced


4.1 Wireless

4.1.1 General

The General tab allows you to configure the basic wireless settings.


To configure the basic wireless settings:

1. From the navigation panel, go to Advanced Settings >

Wireless > General tab.

2. Select 2.4GHz or 5GHz as the frequency band for your wireless network.

3. Assign a unique name containing up to 32 characters for your

SSID (Service Set Identifier) or network name to identify your wireless network. Wi-Fi devices can identify and connect to the wireless network via your assigned SSID. The SSIDs on the information banner are updated once new SSIDs are saved to the settings.

NOTE: You can assign unique SSIDs for the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz frequency bands.

4. In the Hide SSID field, select Yes to prevent wireless devices from detecting your SSID. When this function is enabled, you would need to enter the SSID manually on the wireless device to access the wireless network.

5. Select any of these wireless mode options to determine the types of wireless devices that can connect to your wireless router:

• Auto: Select Auto to allow 802.11AC, 802.11n, 802.11g, and

802.11b devices to connect to the wireless router.

• Legacy: Select Legacy to allow 802.11b/g/n devices to connect to the wireless router. Hardware that supports

802.11n natively, however, will only run at a maximum speed of 54Mbps.

• N only: Select N only to maximize wireless N performance.

This setting prevents 802.11g and 802.11b devices from connecting to the wireless router.

6. Select the operating channel for your wireless router. Select

Auto to allow the wireless router to automatically select the channel that has the least amount of interference.

7. Select any of these channel bandwidth to accommodate higher transmission speeds:

40MHz: Select this bandwidth to maximize the wireless throughput.

20MHz (default): Select this bandwidth if you encounter some issues with your wireless connection.

8. Select any of these authentication methods:

Open System: This option provides no security.

Shared Key: You must use WEP encryption and enter at least one shared key.



WPA/WPA2 Personal/WPA Auto-Personal: This option provides strong security. You can use either WPA (with

TKIP) or WPA2 (with AES). If you select this option, you must use TKIP + AES encryption and enter the WPA passphrase

(network key).

WPA/WPA2 Enterprise/WPA Auto-Enterprise: This option provides very strong security. It is with integrated EAP server or an external RADIUS back-end authentication server.

Radius with 802.1x

NOTE: Your wireless router supports the maximum transmission rate of 54Mbps when the Wireless Mode is set to Auto and encryption

method is WEP or TKIP.

9. Select any of these WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) Encryption options for the data transmitted over your wireless network:

Off: Disables WEP encryption

64-bit: Enables weak WEP encryption

128-bit: Enables improved WEP encryption.

10. When done, click Apply.
