1 Supplemental These setup notes cover the wireless setup for the Asus AAM6030VI Wireless ADSL router. They cover the additional wireless aspects of this product. For basic ethernet and ADSL setup please refer to the standard manual or additional Quick Setup guide.
Now, to configure the 802.11b wireless setup click on the menu item labelled ‘IEEE 802.11B’: There are two basic ways of running your wireless network: With WEP security and without WEP security. It’s easiest to start without security. 3.1 Configuration with no WEP security Click on IEEE/Basic: Ensure that the Channel and ESSID (if used by your computers wireless adapter) match those used by your wireless clients.
Since we are using NO security you must ensure that the WEP setting shows disabled. Remember to click on submit and then save if you change any setting. Finally click on Reset Modem to reboot the router. Then, after the router has restarted goto the IEEE/Status page: Now you must check the settings of your wireless clients to ensure their setup exactly matches the router setup as you’ve just done above.
If you’ve done this correctly then your wireless clients should now be able to see the router. You can test this by running a browser on your client and entering the IP address of the router: The router sign on screen should display. You should also be able to ‘see’...
Now select 128 Bit for WEP (for this example we’ll use 128 encryption). Now you need to enter an encryption key. The easiest way to make a key is enter a word in the Passphrase box and then click on Submit. TAKE CARE: the ‘Create with Passphrase’ feature is case sensitive. So, in the example above ‘WIRELESS’ (all caps.) gives a different key than ‘wireless’...
Now check that the Channel number, Fragmentation Threshold, Preamble (Long), RTS Threshold, SSID (Wireless), and Transmission Rate match the router setup. Also check that the Network Type is Infrastructure. Now check that the Encryption is set to 128 Bit (to match the router): You will now need to correctly setup the WEP security key for the clients.
Ensure that the same security settings are used on your clients i.e. 128 Bit and use the same WEP key. The Pheenet setup utility allows you to create the key from a Passphrase. As with the router ensure that you correctly observe character case (i.e. lower or upper) when entering the passphrase.
won’t work! Also, try setting the configuration without security first of all. Once you have the connection working that way you can then go and add the security. First of all ensure the PCMCIA card is correctly installed with no resource/driver problems. Next goto Control Panel/Network: Next select the Properties of the PCMCIA card (PRISM2 IEEE...) and then go to Advanced: Now it’s just a case of ensuring that every setting of the card matches the router..
Next check the SSID string: It must be the same for both the router and the PCMCIA card. The default setting for the router is ‘Wireless’: Finally turn Wep off (at least for this initial testing anyway): Now check that the router settings are the same..So check the SSID matches the PCMCIA card (‘Wireless’)...
Now... after rebooting the wireless link should work: 3.3 WLAN Bridging Mode Imagine there are three networks connected at the router: • The external WAN network (to your ISP). • The internal ‘wired’ network (via the 4 LAN ports on the router). •...
wireless clients match and don’t clash with the wired clients. e.g. if the router is 192.168.1.1 (as set in Quick Setup/Ethernet) and you have two wired clients with addresses 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.3 then typical addresses for wireless clients would be 192.168.1.4 and 192.168.1.5. BUT you could not use the addresses 192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.3. This wouldn’t work and the wireless clients wouldn’t be able to see the router or the wired clients.
