Wireless Access Point, Repeater, or Bridge. You can connect the AirTies AP-301 to a wired router through the Ethernet port to setup a wireless local network and enable your wireless computers to access the Internet.
Minimum System Requirements 1.2. In order to configure the AirTies AP-301, a PC running any version of Windows, Unix, Linux, or Mac operating systems is required. The AP-301 does not need to be connected to a PC during normal operation.
Green flashing Data exchange over the LAN port No connection on the LAN port Connecting the Cables The correct way of connecting the AP-301 is shown in the figure below. Port Interface 10/100 Ethernet port (auto MDI/MDIX); connects to LAN Power 5V DC;...
Preparing For Installation The installation settings of the AP-301 must be done from a PC that is directly, not wirelessly, connected to it. However, the AirTies AP-301 cannot assign an IP address to the PC connected to it for doing the installation settings since the DHCP feature is not enabled in the default factory settings.
In the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" window, enter 192.168.2.10 in the "IP Address" field and 255.255.255.0 in the "Subnet Mask" field. The IP address of the AP-301 is 192.168.2.254. Therefore, the IP address of the computer should be in the 192.168.2.x range.
In the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" window, go to "IP Address" tab. Enter 192.168.2.10 in the "IP Address" field and 255.255.255.0 in the "Subnet Mask" field. The IP address of the AP-301 is 192.168.2.254. Therefore, the IP address of the computer should be in the 192.168.2.x range.
Properties" window, enter 192.168.2.10 in the "IP Address" field and 255.255.255.0 in the "Subnet Mask" field. The IP address of the AP-301 is 192.168.2.254. Therefore, the IP address of the computer should be in the 192.168.2.x range. Click "OK" to save the values you have entered.
These values can be obtained from the administrator of the network the AP-301 is connected to. Note: If you change the IP address of the AP-301, you must use the new address to connect to the AP-301's web interface. AirTies AP-301 User Manual...
As a wireless access point, the AP-301 enables mobile devices to access the local network. Clicking on the "WIRELESS " menu on the left menu bar of the AP-301 web interface displays all the wireless devices connected to the AP- 301.
Setting the Operating Mode 4.3. The AP-301 is a 3-in-1 device: it can operate as either an access point or a repeater or a bridge. To set the operating mode, go to the "Operating Mode" submenu under the "WIRELESS " menu. The "Operating Mode Selection" window will appear.
"View Wireless Networks" window. Connect to the wireless network whose name (SSID) is "AIRTIES_AP-301", the default SSID of the wireless network set up by the AP-301. If you have assigned a different SSID to your wireless network during configuration, connect to that one.
Using more than one AP-301 as a repeater, and taking advantage of the AirTies Mesh Technology®, you can extend and strengthen your wireless network. AirTies Mesh Technology® helps resolve problems such as weak or lost signal, and limited signal range that is commonly seen in concrete buildings.
Check the box to the left of the access point / repeater you would like the AP-301 to connect to. The access point will appear in the list below, titled "Access Points to Connect to". Click "Save" to complete the Repeater Settings.
4.3.3. You can include a wired device (e.g. printer) to your wireless network by connecting the device to the LAN port of an AP-301 operating in Bridge mode. The diagram below is an example of the AP-301's use as a bridge (connected to a printer).
In this window, you will see a list of all the available wireless access points that the AP-301 bridge can connect to. Check the box next to the access point you would like to connect to and click "Save". Wireless Security Settings 4.4.
"password" field. Make sure you choose a key that is not easy to guess. Click "Save". You must activate WPA and set the same network key in all the wireless devices that will communicate with the AP-301. WPA2 Security Settings 4.4.2.
If any of the devices in your wireless network does not support WPA, it is recommended that you choose WEP encryption. If the AP-301 device is being used in a MESH Network, i.e. communicating with other devices that operate in repeater mode via the MESH protocol, then you can only use WEP encryption.
4.5. To enable Access Control go to "Access Control" under the "WIRELESS" menu of the AP-301 web interface. In the window that appears, you can enter the MAC addresses of the devices that are permitted to access the AP-301. No other device but those permitted can connect to the AP-301.
4.6. The default password for accessing the web-based user interface of the AP-301 is blank. It is recommended that you set a password to avoid unauthorized access to this interface. Enter the current password in the "Current Password" field. (Leave this field blank for the first use.)
"Firmware Update" click "Browse" and select the new downloaded firmware file. Then, click "Update". You can see the version of the firmware that is currently on your AP-301 on the "Welcome" screen that appears as soon as you login to the web interface.
