All devices in the same wireless LAN should use the same channel. Channel Bandwidth Allows you to choose the channel bandwidth 20 MHz or 20/40 MHz. Extension Channel Allows you to select the extension channel when Channel bandwidth is set to 20/40 MHz.
Page: 22
23 Advanced Settings This tab allows you to set the advanced wireless options. The options included are Authentication Type, Fragment Threshold, RTS Threshold, Beacon Interval, and Preamble Type. You should not change these parameters unless you know what effect the changes will have on the router. Fragment Threshold "Fragment Threshold" specifies the maximum size of a packet during the fragmentation of data to be transmitted. If you set this value too low, it will result in bad performance. RTS Threshold When the packet size is smaller then the RTS threshold, the wireless router will not use the RTS/CTS mechanism to send this packet. Beacon Interval is the interval of time that this wireless router broadcasts a beacon. A Beacon is used to synchronize the wireless network. Preamble Type The “Long Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN compatibility while the “Short Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN performance.
Page: 23
24 Broadcast ESSID If you enabled “Broadcast ESSID”, every wireless station located within the coverage of this access point can discover this access point easily. If you are building a public wireless network, enabling this feature is recommended. Disabling “Broadcast ESSID” can provide better security. 802.11g protection: It is recommended to enable the protection mechanism. This mechanism can decrease the rate of data collision between 802.11b and 802.11g wireless stations. When the protection mode is enabled, the throughput of the AP will be a little lower due to a lot of frame-network that is transmitted. WMM WiFi Multi Media if enabled supports QoS for experiencing better audio, video and voice in applications.
Page: 24
25 Security This Access Point provides complete wireless LAN security functions, included are WEP, IEEE 802.11x, IEEE 802.11x with WEP, WPA with pre-shared key and WPA with RADIUS. With these security functions, you can prevent your wireless LAN from illegal access. Please make sure your wireless stations use the same security function, and are setup with the same security key. Disable When you choose to disable encryption, it is very insecure to operate the WL- 341.
Page: 25
26 WEP When you select 64-bit or 128-bit WEP key, you have to enter WEP keys to encrypt data. You can generate the key by yourself and enter it. You can enter four WEP keys and select one of them as a default key. Then the router can receive any packets encrypted by one of the four keys. Key Length You can select the WEP key length for encryption, 64-bit or 128- bit. The larger the key will be the higher level of security is used, but the throughput will be lower. Key Type You may select ASCII Characters (alphanumeric format) or Hexadecimal Digits (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) to be the WEP Key. Key1 - Key4 The WEP keys are used to encrypt data transmitted in the wireless network. Use the following rules to setup a WEP key on the device. 64-bit WEP: input 10-digits Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or 5-digit ASCII character as the encryption keys. 128-bit WEP: input 26-digit Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or 13-digit ASCII characters as the encryption keys. Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations. You can now configure other sections by choosing Continue, or choose Apply to apply the settings and reboot the device.

32 12 Firewall Settings The Broadband router provides extensive firewall protection by restricting connection parameters, thus limiting the risk of hacker attacks, and defending against a wide array of common Internet attacks. However, for applications that require unrestricted access to the Internet, you can configure a specific client/server as a Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). Note: To enable the Firewall settings select Enable and click Apply
Page: 32
33 DMZ If you have a client PC that cannot run an Internet application (e.g. Games) properly from behind the NAT firewall, then you can open up the firewall restrictions to unrestricted two-way Internet access by defining a DMZ Host. The DMZ function allows you to re-direct all packets going to your WAN port IP address to a particular IP address in your LAN. The difference between the virtual server and the DMZ function is that the virtual server re-directs a particular service/Internet application (e.g. FTP, websites) to a particular LAN client/server, whereas DMZ re-directs all packets (regardless of services) going to your WAN IP address to a particular LAN client/server. Enable DMZ Enable/disable DMZ Public IP Address The IP address of the WAN port or any other Public IP addresses given to you by your ISP Client PC IP Address Enter the IP address of a particular host in your LAN that will receive all the packets originally going to the WAN port/Public IP address above. Click <Apply> at the bottom of the screen to save the above configurations.
Page: 33
34 Denial of Service (DoS) The Broadband router's firewall can block common hacker attacks, including Denial of Service, Ping of Death, Port Scan and Sync Flood.

50 Backup Settings The Backup screen allows you to save (Backup) the router’s current configuration settings. When you save the configuration setting (Backup) you can re-load the saved configuration into the router through the Restore selection. If extreme problems occur you can use the Restore to Factory Defaults selection, this will set all configurations to its original default settings (e.g. when you first purchased the router). Use the "Backup" tool to save the Broadband router current configuration to a file named "config.bin" on your PC. You can then use the "Restore" tool to restore the saved configuration to the Broadband router. Alternatively, you can use the "Restore to Factory Defaults" tool to force the Broadband router to perform a power reset and restore the original factory settings.
