This allows you to change the wireless settings
to fit an existing wireless network or to customize your wireless network.
The name assigned to the DWL-2000AP unit. This setting helps when there
are multiple AP's in the same area, on the same network.
The SSID is a network name assigned to a specific wireless local area
network (WLAN). The SSID name can be up to 32 characters in length. The
Access Points and all wireless devices on the same WLAN must use the same
SSID to establish a wireless connection. The factory default setting for
the SSID is "default". The SSID can be easily changed to connect
to an existing wireless network or to establish a new wireless network
with a different SSID.
Indicates the channel setting for the DWL-2000AP. By default the channel
number is set to 6. The channel setting can be changed to fit an
existing wireless network. You may want to switch the channel if the signal
quality is weak because of interference from other wireless devices using
the same channel.
Select "Enabled" to use WEP to provide security by encrypting
the data that is sent over the wireless network. WEP is disabled
by default. (In order to communicate between wireless devices on the network,
all devices must share the same Encryption selection - either Enabled
or Disabled.) All devices on the network, and the Access Point must also
use the same WEP key. The WEP key is generated from ASCII or hexadecimal
entries (hexadecimal digits are numbers 0-9 and letters A-F) that are
either 64, 128 bit in length.
The WEP Modes that are supported by the DWL-2000AP are HEX (Hexadecimal)
and ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange.) The HEX
are numbers 0~9 and characters from A to F. ASCII is the general form
we use daily for representing English characters on computers. The Key
Type can be changed to fit an existing wireless network.
Keys 1-4 allows you to easily change wireless encryption settings to maintain
a secure network. Simply select the specific key to be used for encrypting
wireless data on the network. The key length varies depending on how many
bits you choose for your WEP Encryption. For 64-bit WEP encryption, the
key length is 10 characters; and for 128-bit WEP encryption, the key length
is 26 characters. Please note that some Access Points (AP), require that
the key setting for the wireless client matches the key setting for the
