REGULATORY NOTES

AND STATEMENTS

Wireless LAN, Health and Authorization for Use

Radio frequency electromagnetic energy is emitted from wireless LAN devices. The energy levels of these emissions, however, are far much less than the electromagnetic energy emissions from wireless devices like mobile phones. Wireless LAN devices are safe for use per frequency safety standards and recommendations. The use of wireless LAN devices may be restricted in some situations or environments; for example, aboard airplanes, in an explosive environment or in case the interference risk to other devices or services is perceived or identified as harmful.

In case the policy regarding the use of wireless LAN devices in specific organizations or environments (e.g., airports, hospitals, chemical/oil/gas industrial plants, private buildings) is not clear, please ask for authorization to use these devices prior to operating the equipment.

ABOUT THIS MANUAL

1. INTRODUCTION

With the explosive growth of the Internet, accessing information and services at any time — day or night — has become a standard requirement for most people. The era of the stand-alone PC is waning. Networking technology is moving out of the exclusive domain of corporations and into homes with at least two computers.

This integrated access device combines Internet gateway functions with a wireless LAN and Fast Ethernet switch. Designed for business and the home, it saves you the cost of installing a separate modem and ISP line for each computer while providing ready connection for the users, with or without the network wires.

Broadband network access is also gaining ground. However, allowing more than two computers to access the Internet at the same time means higher costs. Thus, there is a need to share one legal IP address over a single Internet connection to link the home with the Internet.

With the scarcity of IP addresses, the use of a shared Internet connection through an Internet sharing device can circumvent high network-access costs. All linked computers can make full use of broadband capabilities over such a device.

The INTELLINET NETWORK SOLUTIONS Wireless Super G Router not only comes equipped with a wide range of features, but also can be installed and configured right out of the box. This device supports a simple local area network (LAN) and Internet access share, offering great savings.

The LAN connects home computers while also allowing any of the computers to access the Internet, share resources or play online games — the basis of the family computing lifestyle.

APPLICATIONS

Broadband Internet access — Several computers can share one high-speed broadband connection, either wired or wireless (WLAN, LAN and WANInternet).

Resource sharing — Share resources such as printers, scanners and other peripherals.

File sharing — Exchange data/messages and distribute files while making good use of hard disk space.

Online gaming — Through the local area network, online gaming and e-commerce services can be easily set up.

Firewall — A built-in firewall function for security and anti-hack systems.

2. UNPACKING AND SETUP

This section provides unpacking and setup information for the Wireless Super G Router.

UNPACKING

Open the box of the Wireless Super G Router and carefully unpack it. The box should contain the following items:

One Wireless Super G Router, Model 502566

One di-pole antenna

One external power adapter

One CD-ROM with this user manual

If any item is found missing or damaged, please contact your local reseller for replacement.

SETUP

The setup of the Wireless Super G Router can be performed properly using the following methods:

The power outlet should be within 1.82 meters (6 feet) of the router.

Visually inspect the DC power jack and make sure that it is fully secured to the power adapter.

Make sure that there is proper heat dissipation from, and adequate ventilation around, the router. Do not place heavy objects on the router.

Fix the direction of the antennas. Try to place the router in a position that can best cover your wireless network. Normally, the higher you place the antenna, the better the performance will be. The antenna’s position enhances the receiving sensitivity.

FRONT PANEL

Front Panel

Power — This indicator lights green when the hub is receiving power; otherwise it is off.

Status — This indicator blinks green when the router is working. If it stays on or off, the router is not working.

WAN (Link/ACT) — This indicator lights green when the WAN port has been connected to an xDSL/cable modem successfully. It blinks green while the WAN port is transmitting or receiving data on the xDSL/cable modem.

WLAN (ACT) — This indicator lights green when there are wireless devices connected and transmitting data to the router.

Local Network (Link/ACT) — These indicators light green when the LAN ports have been connected successfully. They blink green while the LAN ports are accessing data.

REAR PANEL

Rear Panel

Antenna — There is one 2dBi gain antenna for wireless connection.

LAN (1-4) — Four RJ-45 10/100Mbps Auto-MDIX ports are for connecting to either 10Mbps or 100Mbps Ethernet connections.

WAN — There is an RJ-45 10/100Mbps Auto-MDIX port for the WAN that accommodates the xDSL/cable modem.

DC IN (POWER JACK) — Plug the power adapter into this power jack.

RESET — Use a pin-shaped item to push in to reset the device to factory default settings. It will be useful when the login password is forgotten; and will reset to default settings.

HARDWARE INSTALLATION

HARDWARE CONNECTIONS

Connecting the router

1.Plug in one end of the network cable to the WAN port of the router.

2.Plug in the other end of the network cable to the Ethernet port of the xDSL or cable modem.

3.Use another network cable to connect to the Ethernet card on the computer system; the other end of the cable connects to the LAN port of the router. Since the Wireless Super G Router has four ports, you can connect up to four computers directly to the unit. You do not have to buy a switch to connect these computers since one Wireless Super G Router functions both as a connection-sharing unit and as a switch.

Checking the installation

The control LEDs of the router are clearly visible, and the status of the network link can be seen instantly:

1.With the power source on, once the device is connected to the broadband modem, the Power, System, LAN, WLAN and WAN port LEDs of the router will light up, indicating a normal status.

2.When the WAN is linked to the ADSL/cable modem, the WAN port’s LED will light up.

3.When the LAN is linked up to the computer system, the LAN port’s LED will light up.
