Introduction

And' besides available on CDRom a Quick Start Guide for a fast configuration.

1.1 An Overview of the I-FlyWireless Access Point

The device for a total freedom of movement without losing the connection. Easy to be installed and fast and flexible, with I-FlyWireless Access Point there is no more obligation for a fixed working place: you can easily work or navigate for fun from your own garden or in different rooms of your office, always in wireless connection.

The Roaming function gives you a complete freedom of movement and two or more Wireless AP can serve wireless also large headquarters.

A pair of APs operating under Bridge mode to act as the bridge that connect two Ethernet networks or Ethernet enabled clients together. Repeat Mode is able to extend the effective range and coverage of the wireless network.

Thanks to advanced security functions which are integrated and thanks to the troughput of the protocol IEE802.11G you are going to have a fast and flexible wireless net, hacker safe.

The chipsets fully support Wi-FiProtected Access (WPA) and the IEEE 802.11i draft security standards in hardware andhigh-speedencryption engines for both the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) and the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with no performance degradation.

Last, but not least, this product implements Atheros Super G™ (available for devices with chipset Atheros) capabilities to deliver 108 Mbps raw data rates and 90 Mbps TCP/IP throughput for 802.11g wireless LANs (Real-timehardware data compression, Dynamic transmit and modulation optimization andStandards-compliantbursting mode adapts to the network).

Integrated DHCP services, client and server, allows up to 253 users to get their IP addresses automatically on boot up from the product. Simply set local machines as a DHCP client to accept a dynamically assigned IP address from DHCP server and reboot. Each time a local machine is powered up; the AP will recognize it and assign an IP address to instantly connect it to the LAN.

WPA (with PSK, TKIP): The chipsets fully supportWi-FiProtected Access (WPA) and the IEEE 802.11i draft security standards in hardware andhigh-speedencryption engines for both the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) and the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with no performance degradation.

1 Fast Ethernet port: Support automatic switching between MDI andMDI-Xfor10Base-Tand100Base-TXports is supported. An Ethernet straight orcross-overcable can be used directly, this fast Ethernet switch will detect it automatically.

External Antenna: Dipole External removable Antenna (SMA)

Quick Installation Wizard: Supports a WEB GUI page to install this device quickly. With this wizard, an end user can enter the information easily which they from the ISP, then surf the Internet immediately.

MAC Filtering: MAC Filter function controls the MAC of the network devices that are listed in this table for access authorization or denial.

Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP) client and server: In the WAN site, the DHCP client can get an IP address from the Internet Server Provider (ISP) automatically. In the LAN site, the DHCP server can allocate up to 253 client IP addresses and distribute them including IP address, subnet mask as well as DNS IP address to local computers. It provides an easy way to manage the local IP network.

Web based GUI: supports web based GUI for configuration and management. It is userfriendly with anon-linehelp, providing necessary information and assist user timing. It also supports remote management capability for remote users to configure and manage this product.

Firmware Upgradeable: the device can be upgraded to the latest firmware through the WEB based GUI.

Using I-FlyWireless Access Point

2.1 Cautions for using the I-FlyWireless Access Point

Do not place the AP under high humidity and high temperature. Do not use the same power source for AP with other equipment.

Do not open or repair the case yourself. If the AP is too hot, turn off the power immediately and have a qualified serviceman repair it.

Place the AP on a stable surface.

Only use the power adapter that comes with the package, Using a power supply with a different voltage rating than the one included will cause damage and void the warranty for this product.

Configuration

The I-FlyWireless Access Point can be configured with your Web browser. The web browser is included as a standard application in the following operation systems, UNIX, Linux, Mac OS, Windows 95/98/NT/2000/Me/XP, and etc. The product provides a very easy anduser-friendlyinterface for configuration. With

3.1 Before Configuration

This section describes the configuration required by LAN-attachedPCs that communicate with theI-FlyWireless Access Point, either to configure the device or for network access. These PCs must have an Ethernet interface installed properly, be connected to the AP either directly or through an external repeater hub, and have TCP/IP installed and configured to obtain an IP address through a DHCP server or a fixed IP address that must be in the same subnet of the AP. The default IP address of the ADSL Firewall AP is192.168.1.1 and subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. The best and easy way is to configure the PC to get an IP address from the AP. Also make sure you have UNINSTALLED any kind of software firewall that can cause problems while accessing the 192.168.1.1 IP address of the AP.

Please follow the steps below for PC’s network environment installation. First of all, please check your PC’s network components. The TCP/IP protocol stack and Ethernet network adapter must be installed.

Any TCP/IP capable workstation can be used to communicate with or through the AP. To configure other types of workstations, please consult the manufacturer’s documentation.

3.2 Connecting the I-FlyWireless Access Point

Power on the device

Make sure the PWR(green) Leds are OK & LAN (or WLAN) Led is lit

Connect PC directly to the AP by cable or Wireless

Before taking the next step, make sure you have uninstalled any software firewall
