    Manual Installation 1. Power off your computers and networking equipment. 2. Connect your computer to one of the YELLOW RJ45 ports on the rear of the Router with the supplied Ethernet network cable. 3. Connect your ADSL Line Connection for the Router to the ADSL line varies by country and region. Typically it involves a microfilter or a microfilter with built-in splitter to allow simultaneous use of ADSL service and telephone service on the same telephone line. Please read the following steps carefully and select the appropriate method. • If your telephone service and ADSL service are on the same telephone line, ADSL microfilters are needed for each telephone and device, such as answering machine, fax machine, and caller ID display. Additional splitters may be used to separate telephone lines for telephone and Router. Note: Do not connect the ADSL microfilter between the wall jack and the Router—this will prevent ADSL service from reaching the modem.

    • After connecting the power cord and the power source is turned on, the Router’s power icon on the front panel should be on. It might take a few minutes for the Router to fully start up. • Turn on your computer. After your computer boots up, the LAN status LED on the front of the Router will be on for each port to which a wired computer is connected. These lights show you the connection and activity status. Now you are ready to configure the Router for ADSL connection.

  • Page 12: Accessing The User Interface

    Accessing the User Interface 1. You can access the web-based management user interface of the Router using the Internet browser on a computer connected to the Router. Type “” in your browser’s address bar. Then press the “Enter” key. Note: It is strongly recommended that you use a computer physically connected to the Router with an RJ45 cable for initial setup. Using a wirelessly connected computer for initial setup is not recommended.

  • Page 13: Understanding The Web-based User Interface, Setup

    Understanding the Web-Based User Interface Quick-Navigation Tabs - You can go directly to any of the Router’s UI pages by clicking directly on these links. The links are divided into logical categories and grouped by tabs to make finding a particular setting easier to find. Help is available to the right of each page. Setup The panel to the left of this page contains setup wizards to allow you to quickly and conveniently make changes to your modem router configuration. Wizards are provided for the following features: • Internet Connection - This Wizard scans your Internet connection and connects to the Internet. Most cable modems will connect automatically when the Internet Connection Wizard is run. DSL modems may require PPPoE information to connect to the Internet. If your connection requires a password or other PPPoE information, have it ready! Your ISP can provide this information if you don’t have it. • Wireless SSID - This Wizard lets you set an SSID (network name) and chose a wireless channel for your network.

    function correctly. • Wireless Multicast Rate - This Wizard sets the Wireless Multicast Rate and IPv6 Pass Through. • Firmware Update – This wizard installs an AirStation Firmware update. • Initialisation - This Wizard restores the AirStation to factory default settings. An overview of your AirStation’s system information is displayed on the right. The wireless section displays the status and encryption settings of your wireless LAN access point. Shortcuts are also available for AOSS and WPS connection methods. Internet/LAN Internet The Internet Setup section is for setting your broadband gateway to work correctly with your ISP’s equipment. This includes your ISP’s Internet servers and the Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) network between the gateway and the servers. Note: Information on what settings to use in this section must be obtained from your ISP.

    Connection Type From the “Connection Type” drop down box, you can select one of these five connection types based on the instruction provided by your ISP: • RFC 2516 PPPoE • RFC 2364 PPPoA • 1483 Bridged • 1483 Routed • Bridge Mode Only Setting your ISP Connection Type to PPPoE or PPPoA PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) is the standard method of con- necting networked devices. It requires a user name and password to access the network of your ISP for connecting to the Internet. PPPoA (PPP over ATM) is similar to PPPoE, but is mostly implemented in the UK. Setting your Connection Type to RFC 1483 Bridged/Routed This connection method bridges your network and your ISP’s network together.

    DDNS If your Modem Router’s Internet IP address is assigned dynamically and you wish to host a Web site or other Internet service, you can sign up with DynDNS.org or TZO.com for Dynamic DNS (DDNS) service. Select your DDNS provider from this list box, enter the required information, and click “Apply”. The gateway will send its Internet IP address to the provider so the provider can update your DNS entry. For DDNS.org service, you must enter a user name, password, and host name. For TZO.com service, you must fill in the correct e-mail address, password, and domain name Route Network Address Translation (NAT) lets you use ‘private’ (and cost-free) IP addresses on your LAN and a single ‘public’ IP address (which you must pay for) on the Internet. When a local computer accesses the Internet, your broadband modem router changes the source address from the computer’s to its own Internet IP address. When a response comes back, it changes the destination address from its Internet IP address to the requesting computer’s...

    local IP address. NAT is enabled (turned on) by default. Disable it if you do not need it. Wireless Config For information on configuring a connection with WPS or AOSS, please refer to the earlier sections of the manual which describe how to use these meth- ods to establish a wireless connection. Basic The “Basic” tab lets you make changes to the wireless network settings - wire- less network name (SSID), radio, operating channel and security level.

    For security purposes, you can choose not to broadcast your network’s SSID (set to “Allow” by default). Doing so will keep your network name hidden from computers that are scanning for the presence of wireless networks. To turn off the broadcast of the SSID, remove the tick. Security/Encryption The WBMR-HP-GN modem router includes a security feature which allows each wireless client to connect with a different level of security. This function is particularly useful in a situation where a single client can only connect via WEP (lowest level of security). Because clients can connect at different encryption levels, it means that the security of the remaining wireless devices is not compromised.

    SSID2 Wireless encryption WPA-PSK-AES is used for Multi Security SSID2. SSID3 Wireless encryption WEP is used for Multi Security SSID3. Advanced Wireless Settings BSS BasicRateSet BSS (Basic Service Set) configures the transmission rate of communication for wireless clients. Setup choices may vary with different wireless clients. Multicast Rate You can select 1, 2, 5.5, 6, 9, 11, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 54Mbps or Auto. Default Value is “Auto”. Reverse Direction Grant Choose whether Reverse Direction Grant (RDG) function is enabled or disa- bled. During an RD exchange sequence, the RD initiator station may transmit PPDUs and obtain response PPDUs from a single station (RD responder) dur- ing the exchange. Wireless LAN devices that connect to the AirStation must also enable the RDG function. DTIM Period DTIM (Delivery Traffic Identification Maps’ Period is an interval when wireless LAN equipment broadcasts DTIM information. Setting larger values saves power but may slow network traffic.

    Privacy Separator Choose whether Privacy Separator function is enabled or disabled. When Privacy Separator is enabled, each wireless LAN device connecting to the AirStation cannot communicate with other local wireless devices. However, communication with Internet side is still available. Output Power Output Power and the range of the associated electromagnetic waves are almost proportional. If the Output Power is cut to 50%, the AirStation’s range will be shortened by about half. You may limit your AirStation’s range by modifying this value. Default value is “100 %”. WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia) provides multimedia enhancements for Wi-Fi® networks that improve the user experience for audio, video, and voice ap- plications. WMM Power Save increases the efficiency and flexibility of data transmission.. This screen allows you to prioritise AirStation communication for specific transactions. For example you may change settings which can help improve the quality of VOIP or other streaming protocols.

    MAC Filter The MAC Filter is a powerful security feature that allows you to specify which computers are allowed on the network. Wireless connections to the AirStation can be limited to specific client MAC addresses to enhance security against unwanted network visitors. When enabled, only wireless client adapters with registered MAC addresses will be allowed to connect to the AirStation.

    Limits the type of packets allowed to pass between the Internet and LAN. When packets reach the AirStation, the firewall evaluates the packets, and forwards packets that don’t match any filter to their destination. The Firewall blocks unnecessary packets from the Internet side and prevents leaking secure information from the LAN side. Prohibit NBT and Microsoft-DS routing Prevents unexpected external access via Microsoft network sharing. The default setting is disabled. Reject IDENT requests When this is enabled, the AirStation sends reject packets if it receives an IDENT request. The default setting is enabled. Use this filter when the com-...

    Limits the type of packets allowed to pass between the Internet and LAN. The maximum number of rules is 32. If the packet meets one of the monitoring conditions before it is routed, the specified action will be taken. If multiple conditions are met, the appropriate action will be performed once the packet meets the condition.

  • Page 24

    Port Forwarding allows you to route external (Internet) calls for services such as a web server (port 80), FTP server (Port 21), or other applications, through your Router to your internal network. Since your internal computers are pro- tected by a firewall, machines from the Internet cannot get to them because they cannot be ‘seen’ . If you need to configure the port forwarding function for a specific application, you will need to contact the application vendor to find out which port settings you need. You can manually input this port information into the Router.

  • Page 25: Admin Config

    Quality of Service (QoS) assigns priority levels to different kinds of packets to minimize delays in the transfer of data. The table lists four common ap- plications and lets you enter the port numbers for up to four more. Click the High Priority button for the application(s) whose packets you wish to receive preferential treatment. Admin Config Name This can be used to assign a specific descriptive name for the AirStation. The AirStation name may be up to 64 alphanumeric characters in length, and ’-’ are allowed, but a ’-’ may not be the first or last character in the name. By default, the AirStation name is its LAN-side MAC address.

    PC. This can then be used to restore settings as required. Note: The AirStation will not be able to restore configurations from the save file in the following circumstances: • If you password-protect the backup and then don’t enter the password correctly when restoring. • Configuration file created with a later version of the firmware than you are currently running. • Configuration file was created by a different product. Initialize/Restart Sometimes it may be necessary to restart or initialize the Router if it is not working correctly. Restarting the Router will NOT delete any of your configu- ration settings. However, if you choose to initialize your AirStation settings will be restored to factory defaults. Update From time to time, Buffalo may release new versions of the Router’s firmware. Firmware updates contain feature improvements and fixes to problems that may have existed. When Buffalo releases new firmware, you can download the firmware from the Buffalo website and update your Router’s firmware to the latest version.
