1.Introduction

1.1Overview

This manual is intended for system integrators, field engineers and network administrators to set up 4ipnet OWL400/410 Long Range Outdoor AP/ Bridge/ CPE in their network environments. It contains step-by-step procedures and graphic examples to guide users with networking knowledge to complete the installation.

OWL400 (with N-type connector)

OWL410 (with built-in 10dBi patch antenna)

The 802.11 n/a compliant OWL400/410 is a multi-mode Last-Mile Broadband solution for Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP). It can be deployed as a traditional fixed wireless Access Point (AP mode) or it can be used as an outdoor Customer Premises Equipment (CPE mode) that connects to the outdoor wireless network of Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP).

The metal sealed OWL400/410 is compact in size and weatherproof. Coming with a mounting kit, it can be mounted on a pole or wall. It is suitable for both indoor and outdoor usage with its 200mW output power, which is higher than a typical indoor AP (100mW).

The following is a network diagram for a typical WISP application.

3.2 Basic Configuration

3.2.1 Introduction to Web Management Interface

OWL400/410 provides a user friendly web management interface for configuration. As OWL400/410 is a dual-mode system which can be configured as either an access point (AP Mode) or a gateway (CPE Mode) based on your needs, it is required to follow the respective installation procedures provided to properly set up the desired mode for this system.

Default IP Address of Web Management Interface:

The default IP address and Subnet Mask for the AP mode and CPE mode are as follows:

Mode

AP Mode

CPE Mode

IP Address

192.168.1.1

192.168.1.1

Subnet Mask

255.255.255.0

255.255.255.0

In addition, there are two system management accounts for AP & CPE mode to maintain the system, root and admin, and each has different levels of management capabilities. The root account is empowered with full privileges while the admin account is with partial ones. And there is only one management account for AP mode, root. For more information on the privileges of these two accounts, please refer to Appendix A. System Management Account Privileges.

Default User Name and Password:

The default User name and Password for both the root and admin account are as follows:

Mode

AP Mode

CPE Mode

 

 

 

 

Management Account

Root Account

Root Account

Admin Account

 

 

 

 

User Name

root

< AP Mode – Default Mode >

Step 1: IP Segment Set-up for Administrator PC

Set a static IP address on the same subnet mask as OWL400/410 in TCP/IP of the administrator PC, such as the following example. Do not duplicate the IP address used here with the IP address of OWL400/410 or any other devices within the same network.

>> Example of IP Segment:

The valid range of IP address is 1 ~ 254. However, 1 must be avoided as it is already used by OWL400/410. Below depicts an example of using 100 (the underlined value can be changed as desired).

IP Address: 192.168.1.100

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
