2. System Overview

2.1 Introduction of 4ipnet WHG301

4ipnet WHG301 is an all-in-one product specially designed for wired and wireless data network environments in small to middle scaled businesses and hotspots. It features integrated management, secured data transmission, and enhanced accounting and billing. System administrators can effectively monitor wired or wireless users, including employees and guest users via its user management interface. Moreover, administrators can discover, configure, monitor, and upgrade all managed Access Points (APs) from a single, centralized AP management interface.

2.2 System Concept

4ipnet WHG301 is capable of managing user authentication, authorization and accounting. The user account information is stored in the local database or a specified external database server. Featured with user authentication and integrated with external payment gateway, WHG301 allows users to easily pay the fee and enjoy the Internet service using credit cards through Authorize.net or PayPal. With centralized AP management feature, the administrator does not need to worry about how to manage multiple wireless access point devices. Furthermore, WHG301 introduces the concept of Service Zones - multiple virtual networks, each with its own definable access control profiles. This is very useful for hotspot owners seeking to provide different customers or staff with different levels of network services. The following diagram is an example of WHG301 set to manage the Internet and network access services at a hotspot venue.

4ipnet WHG301 User’s Manual

3.1.4 Installation Steps

Please follow the steps below to install 4ipnet WHG301:

1.Connect the 12V power adapter to the power socket on the rear panel. The Power LED should be on to indicate a proper connection.

2.Connect an Ethernet cable to the WAN1 Port on the front panel. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to an xDSL/cable modem, or a switch/hub on the LAN of a company/organization. The LED of this port should be on to indicate a proper connection.

3.Connect an Ethernet cable to one of the LAN1~LAN8 Ports on the front panel. Per your needs, connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to an administrator PC for configuring the WHG301 system, an AP for extending wireless coverage, a switch for connecting more wired clients, or a client PC. The LED of the connected port should be on to indicate a proper connection.

WHG301 supports Auto Sensing MDI/MDIX. You may use either a straight-through or a cross-over Ethernet cable to connect the Ethernet port.

3.2 Quick Software Configuration

4ipnet WHG301 supports web-based configuration. Upon the completion of hardware installation, WHG301 can be configured via web browsers with JavaScript enabled such as Internet Explorer version 6.0 and above or Firefox. There are two ways to configure the 4ipnet WHG301 system: using the online Configuration Wizard or changing the settings by commands manually. The Configuration Wizard comprises of six basic steps as follows. Follow the instructions of Configuration Wizard to enter the required information step by step, save your settings, and restart WHG301. The 6 steps of Configuration Wizard are listed below:

Step 1. Change Admin’s Password

Step 2. Choose System’s Time Zone

Step 3. Set System Information

Step 4. Select Connection Type for WAN Port

Step 5. Add Local User Account (Optional)

Step 6. Save and Restart 4ipnet WHG301

Please follow the following steps to complete the quick configuration:

1.To access the web management interface, connect a PC to one of the LAN1~8 ports, and then launch a browse. Make sure you have set DHCP in TCP/IP of your PC to get an IP address dynamically.

Next, enter the gateway IP address of WHG301 at the address field. The default gateway IP address ishttps://192.168.1.254(“https” is used for a secured connection).

The administrator login page will appear. Enter “ admin” , the default username, and “ admin” , the default password, in the User Name and Password fields. Click Enter to log in.

After a successful login, a “Welcome to System Administration” page will appear on the screen.

9

© 2008 4IPNET, INC.

4ipnet WHG301 User’s Manual

For the first time, if WHG301 is not using a trusted SSL certificate, there will be a “Certificate Error”, because the browser treats WHG301 as an illegal website. Please press “Continue to this website” to continue. The default user login page will then appear in the browser. For more information, please see 4.2.5 Additional Configuration.

If you can’t get the login screen, the reasons may be: (1) The PC is set incorrectly so that the PC can’t obtain the IP address automatically from the LAN port; (2) The IP address and the default gateway are not under the same network segment. Please use default IP address such as 192.168.1.xx in your network and then try it again. For the configuration on PC, please refer to Appendix F.

4ipnet WHG301 supports three kinds of account interface. You can log in as admin, manager or operator. The default usernames and passwords show as follows:

Admin: The administrator can access all configuration pages of WHG301.

User Name: admin

Password: admin
