Wireless Settings
The Wireless Settings page contains the settings for the (Access Point) Portion of the WBR-1310. This page allows you to customize your wireless network or configure the WBR-1310 to fit an existing wireless network that you may already have setup.

 

Wireless Network Name
Also known as the SSID (Service Set Identifier), this is the name of your Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). By default the SSID of the WBR-1310 is "dlink". This can be easily changed to establish a new wireless network or to add the WBR-1310 to an existing wireless network.

 

Wireless Channel
Indicates which channel the WBR-1310 is operating on. By default the channel is set to 6. This can be changed to fit the channel setting for an existing wireless network or to customize your new wireless network. Click the Enable Auto Scan checkbox to have the WBR-1310 automatically select the channel that it will operate on. This option is recommended because the router will choose the channel with the least amount of interference.

 

802.11g Only Mode
Enable this mode if your network is made up of purely 802.11g devices. If you have both 802.11b and 802.11g wireless clients, disable this mode.

 

Enable Hidden Wireless
Select Disabled if you would not like the SSID of your wireless network to be broadcasted by the WBR-1310. If this option is Disabled, the SSID of the WBR-1310 will not be seen by Site Survey utilities, so when setting up your wireless clients, you will have to know the SSID of your WBR-1310 and enter it manually in order to connect to the router. This option is enabled by default.

 

Wireless Security Mode
Securing your wireless network is important as it is used to protect the integrity of the information being transmitted over your wireless network. The WBR-1310 is capable of 4 types of wireless security; WEP, WPA, WPA2, and WPA2-Auto.

 

WEP
Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP) is a wireless security protocol for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN). WEP provides security by encrypting the data that is sent over the WLAN. The WBR-1310 supports 2 levels of WEP Encryption: 64-bit and 128-bit. WEP is disabled by default. The WEP setting can be changed to fit an existing wireless network or to customize your wireless network.

Authentication - Authentication is a process by which the WBR-1310 verifies the identity of a network device that is attempting to join the wireless network. There are two types authentication for this device when using WEP.
Open System - Select this option to allow all wireless devices to communicate with the WBR-1310 before they are required to provide the encryption key needed to gain access to the network.
Shared Key - Select this option to require any wireless device attempting to communicate with the WBR-1310 to provide the encryption key needed to access the network before they are allowed to communicate with the WBR-1310. WEP Encryption -Select the level of WEP Encryption that you would like to use on your network. The two supported levels of WEP encryption are 64-bit and 128-bit.
Key Type -The Key Types that are supported by the WBR-1310 are HEX (Hexadecimal) and ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange.) The Key Type can be changed to fit an existing wireless network or to customize your wireless network.
Keys -Keys 1-4 allow 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.

 

WPA -Personal
Wi-Fi Protected Access authorizes and authenticates users onto the wireless network. WPA uses stronger security than WEP and is based on a key that changes automatically at a regular interval.

Cipher Type -The WBR-1310 support two different cipher types when WPA is used as the Security Type. These two options are TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) and AES (Advanced Encryption Standard).
PSK/EAP -When PSK is selected, your wireless clients will need to provide a Passphrase for authentication. When EAP is selected, you will need to have a RADIUS server on your network which will handle the authentication of all your wireless clients.
Passphrase -This is what your wireless clients will need in order to communicate with your WBR-1310, when PSK is selected. Enter 8-63 alphanumeric characters. Be sure to write this Passphrase down as you will need to enter it on any other wireless devices you are trying to add to your network.
802.1X -This means of WPA authentication is used in conjunction with a RADIUS server that must be present on your network. Enter the IP address, port, and Shared Secret that you RADIUS is configured for. You also have the option to enter information for a second RADIUS server in the even that there are two on your network which you are using to authenticate wireless clients.

 

WPA2
Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 authorizes and authenticates users onto the wireless network. WPA2 uses stronger security than WEP and is based on a key that changes automatically at a regular interval.

Cipher Type -The WBR-1310 support two different cipher types when WPA is used as the Security Type. These two options are TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) and AES (Advanced Encryption Standard).
PSK/EAP -When PSK is selected, your wireless clients will need to provide a Passphrase for authentication. When EAP is selected, you will need to have a RADIUS server on your network which will handle the authentication of all your wireless clients.
Passphrase -This is what your wireless clients will need in order to communicate with your WBR-1310, when PSK is selected. Enter 8-63 alphanumeric characters. Be sure to write this Passphrase down as you will need to enter it on any other wireless devices you are trying to add to your network.
802.1X -This means of WPA2 authentication is used in conjunction with a RADIUS server that must be present on your network. Enter the IP address, port, and Shared Secret that you RADIUS is configured for. You also have the option to enter information for a second RADIUS server in the even that there are two on your network which you are using to authenticate wireless clients.

 

WPA2-Auto
This option allows the WBR-1310 to have both WPA2 and WPA clients connected to it simultaneously.

 

Network Settings
These are the settings of the LAN (Local Area Network) interface for the device. These settings may be referred to as "private settings". You may change the LAN IP address if needed. The LAN IP address is private to your internal network and cannot be seen on the Internet. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.

IP Address -IP address of the WBR-1310, default is 192.168.0.1.
Subnet Mask -Subnet Mask of WBR-1310, default is 255.255.255.0.
Local Domain Name- (optional) Enter in the local domain name for your network.

 

DNS Relay -When DNS Relay is enabled, DHCP clients of the router will be assigned the router's LAN IP address as their DNS server. All DNS requests that the router receives will be forwarded to your ISPs DNS servers. When DNS relay is disabled, all DHCP clients of the router will be assigned the ISP DNS server.

 

DHCP Server
DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Control Protocol. The DHCP server assigns IP addresses to devices on the network that request them. These devices must be set to "Obtain the IP address automatically". By default, the DHCP Server is enabled on the WBR-1310. The DHCP address pool contains the range of the IP address that will automatically be assigned to the clients on the network.

Starting IP address The starting IP address for the DHCP server's IP assignment.
Ending IP address The ending IP address for the DHCP server's IP assignment.
Lease Time The length of time in minutes for the IP lease.

Dynamic DHCP client computers connected to the unit will have their information displayed in the Dynamic DHCP Client Table. The table will show the Host Name, IP Address, MAC Address, and Expired Time of the DHCP lease for each client computer.
