AOSS (AirStationOne-TouchSecure System) is a simple system for configuringyour wireless network securely. If your router and your client device are installed and both support AOSS, then making a secure wireless connection between them is simple.

A. Push the AOSS button on the top of your router and hold it in for a few seconds. The AOSSlight will begin to flash amber.

B. You now have two minutes to push the AOSS button on your client device and finish theconnection. If your client device is a PC card, CardBus, USB, or PCI adapter, the AOSS button will probably be in its Client Manager Software. Check your client device’s AOSS setup information for instructions on where to push or click the AOSS button.

After you’ve pressed both buttons, it will take about 30 seconds for the connection to complete.

When it’s finished, the AOSS light will glow a solid amber, without blinking. You now have a secure network connection!

Notes: If your client devices do not support AOSS, or you don’t want to use it, turn topage 5.

Only one AOSS wireless client adapter can be configured with the AOSS router at a time. The buttons will need to be re-pressed to connect each additional AOSS wireless client adapter.

Additional non-AOSSwireless devices can be connected to your wireless network by connectingthem manually. The encryption information is available in the AirStation Web Configuration

Utility in the AOSS section. Please consult the User Manual on the AirStation CD-ROMfor more information.

After you push the first AOSS button, you have 2 minutes to push the second AOSS button. If you run out of time, just push the first AOSS button again.

Connect non-AOSSClients

If a wireless client doesn’t support AOSS, you’ll have to configure it manually.

Using the same SSID and encryption information that you entered during router configuration, enter the required credentials for each of your wireless clients. Consult your wireless client’s documentation forinstructions on configuring it to work with your new wireless network.

Congratulations! Your AirStation is installed and the basic setup has been configured. For advanced settings and more detailed information, consult the User Manual, located on your

AirNavigator for Routers and Access Points CD-ROM.
