1.5 Wireless Performance

The following information will help you utilizing the wireless performance, and operating coverage of

WRT-410.

1.Site selection

To avoid interferences, please locate WRT-410 and wireless clients away from transformers, microwave ovens, heavy-duty motors, refrigerators, fluorescent lights, and other industrial equipments. Keep the number of walls, or ceilings between AP and clients as few as possible; otherwise the signal strength may be seriously reduced. Place WRT-410 in open space or add additional WAP-4000 as needed to improve the coverage.

2.Environmental factors

The wireless network is easily affected by many environmental factors. Every environment is unique with different obstacles, construction materials, weather, etc. It is hard to determine the exact operating range of WRT-410 in a specific location without testing.

3.Antenna adjustment

The bundled antenna of WRT-410 is adjustable. Firstly install the antenna pointing straight up, then smoothly adjust it if the radio signal strength is poor. But the signal reception is definitely weak in some certain areas, such as location right down the antenna.

Moreover, the original antenna of WRT-410 can be replaced with other external antennas to extend the coverage. Please check the specification of the antenna you want to use, and make sure it can be used on WRT-410.

4.WLAN type

If WRT-410 is installed in an 802.11b and 802.11g mixed WLAN, its performance will reduced significantly. Because every 802.11g OFDM packet needs to be preceded by an RTS-CTS or CTS packet exchange that can be recognized by legacy 802.11b devices. This additional overhead lowers the speed. If there are no 802.11b devices connected, or if connections to all 802.11b devices are denied so that WRT-410 can operate in 11g-only mode, then its data rate should actually 54Mbps and 108Mbps in Super G mode.

Chapter 2 Hardware Installation

Before you proceed with the installation, it is necessary that you have enough information about the WRT-410.

2.1Hardware Connection

1.Locate an optimum location for the WRT-410. The best place for your WRT-410 is usually at the center of your wireless network, with line of sight to all of your mobile stations.

2.Adjust the antennas of WRT-410. Try to adjust them to a position that can best cover your wireless network. The antenna’s position will enhance the receiving sensitivity.

3.Connect RJ-45 cable to WRT-410 LAN port. Connect one of the LAN ports on WRT-410 to your LAN switch/hub with a RJ-45 cable.

4.Connect RJ-45 cable to WRT-410 WAN port. Connect ADSL/Cable Modem to the WAN port on WRT-410. Use the cable supplied with your modem. If no cable was supplied with your modem, please use a RJ-45 Ethernet cable

5.Plug in power adapter and connect to power source. After power on, WRT-410 will start to operate.

Note: ONLY use the power adapter supplied with the WRT-410. Otherwise, the product may be damaged.

Note: If you want to reset WRT-410 to default settings, press and hold the Reset button over 5 seconds. And then wait for 10 seconds for WRT-410 restart.
