Page: 32
Basic Settings Mode Allows you to set the AP to AP, Station, Bridge or WDS mode. Band Allows you to set the AP fixed at 802.11b or 802.11g mode. You can also select B+G mode to allow 802.11b and 802.11g clients at the same time. For the 5GHz mode you can set 802.11a, 802.11n or 802.11a/n mode. ESSID This is the name of the wireless signal which is broadcasted. All the devices in the same wireless LAN should have the same ESSID. Channel The channel used by the wireless LAN. All devices in the same wireless LAN should use the same channel.
Page: 33
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. Authentication Type There are two authentication types: "Open System" and "Shared Key". When you select "Open System", wireless stations can associate with this wireless router without WEP encryption. When you select "Shared Key", you should also setup a WEP key in the "Encryption" page. After this has been done, make sure the wireless clients that you want to connect to the device are also setup with the same encryption key. 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.
Page: 34
Data Rate The “Data Rate” is the rate that this access point uses to transmit data packets. The access point will use the highest possible selected transmission rate to transmit the data packets. N Data Rate The “Data Rate” is the rate that this access point uses to transmit data packets for N compliant wireless nodes. Highest to lowest data rate can be fixed. Channel Bandwidth is the range of frequencies that will be used. Preamble Type The “Long Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN compatibility while the “Short Preamble” can provide better wireless LAN performance. 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. CTS 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. TX Power can be set to a bare minimum or maximum power. WMM WiFi Multi Media if enabled supports QoS for experiencing better audio, video and voice in applications.
Page: 35
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 WLR-6001. Enable 802.1x Auth IEEE 802.1x is an authentication protocol. Every user must use a valid account to login to this Access Point before accessing the wireless LAN. The authentication is processed by a RADIUS server. This mode only authenticates users by IEEE 802.1x, but it does not encrypt the data during communication
Page: 36
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 Format 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.
Page: 37
WPA Pre-shared Key Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an advanced security standard. You can use a pre-shared key to authenticate wireless stations and encrypt data during communication.

13 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: 42
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 Fill-in 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: 43
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. If Internet attacks occur the router can log the events. Ping of Death Protections from Ping of Death attack Discard Ping From WAN The router’s WAN port will not respond to any Ping requests Port Scan Protects the router from Port Scans. Sync Flood Protects the router from Sync Flood attack.
