WLAN Management

WLAN Management

Context

A complete WLAN configuration process includes radio setting and WLAN configuration. In the radio setting, basic radio parameters are set for a router. In WLAN configuration, WLAN is configured to provide different access services for wireless users.

Procedure

  • Radio setting
    1. Choose LAN Access > WLAN > WLAN Management, as shown in Figure 11-3.

      Figure 11-3  WLAN Management

    2. In the Radio Setting area, set parameters listed in Table 11-3.
    3. Click Apply to make the settings take effect.

    Table 11-3  Radio parameters

    Parameter

    Description

    Country code

    Country code of a router.

    Frequency band

    Working frequency of the radio, which can be the 2.4 or 5 GHz frequency band.

    NOTE:

    Working frequencies may depending on the product model and local country. The actual working frequency on a device shall prevail. Configure the transmit power and working channel based on the working frequency.

    Transmit power level

    Maximum transmission power of the radio.

    • Auto: Radio output power is automatically selected according to the radio environment.
    • Fixed level: Output power is specified by users.

    Channel

    Channel of the radio.

    • Auto: Channels are automatically selected to adapt to the radio environment.
    • Fixed channel: Channels are specified by users. The manual mode provides an alternative way. You can use this mode if you want to avoid frequent channel adjustment, which may cause intermittent service interruption.
    NOTE:

    You are advised to use the automatic mode because you do not need to specify a channel for each radio.

  • WLAN configuration
    • Create a WLAN.

      1. Choose LAN Access > WLAN > WLAN Management.

      2. Click Create in the WLAN List area.

      3. In the Create WLAN dialog box, set WLAN basic parameters listed in Table 11-4, as shown in Figure 11-4.

        Figure 11-4  Create WLAN

      4. Click OK to save the settings.

      5. Select the configured WLAN, and click Start.

        NOTE:

        STAs can access a local network only after WLAN is enabled.

    Table 11-4  WLAN parameters

    Parameter

    Description

    SSID

    Name of a WLAN.

    Whether to hide the network

    Whether to hide the WLAN name.

    • Yes: indicates to hide the WLAN name

    • No: indicates to display the WLAN name

    NOTE:

    Only super administrators at levels 3 to 15 can check and configure this parameter.

    VLAN ID

    VLAN that WLAN users belong to.

    Maximum connection count

    Maximum number of access users that a WLAN supports.

    Frequency band

    Working frequency.

    NOTE:

    Working frequencies may depending on the product model and local country. The actual working frequency on a device shall prevail.

    Whether to encrypt the value

    Whether to enable the security policy.

    • Yes: indicates that the security policy is enabled

    • No: indicates that the security policy is disabled

    Encryption mode

    Security policy of a WLAN. WLAN security policies are as follows:
    • Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)using the RC4 algorithm
    • Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) using TKIP encryption
    • WPA2 using CCMP encryption
    • WLAN Authentication and Privacy Infrastructure (WAPI) (It is a Chinese National Standard developed based on IEEE 802.11).
    NOTE:

    Encryption modes may vary depending on the product module. The actual encryption mode supported by a device shall prevail. Table 11-5 describes parameters of each encryption mode.

    Inbound(Kbps)

    Indicates the rate limit for packets sent from all clients to the device.

    Outbound(Kbps)

    Indicates the rate limit for packets sent from the device to clients.

    Table 11-5  Parameters of each encryption mode

    Encryption Mode

    Parameter

    Description

    WEP

    Authentication mode

    Authentication mode when the security policy is WEP.

    • Open-System: WEP open authentication, that is no authentication
    • Share-Key: WEP shared key authentication (a WLAN client and a WLAN server must use the same shared key)

    Key type

    Encryption mode, which can be WEP40 or WEP104.

    • WEP40: indicates that you can enter a string of 10 hexadecimal characters or 5 ASCII characters
    • WEP104: indicates that you can enter a string of 26 hexadecimal characters or 13 ASCII characters

    The key improves security of data transmission between the WLAN client and the WLAN server.

    Key ID

    Key ID. You can select a key as the WEP key for encryption and decryption. Assume that you select ID 1, the key mapping ID 1 takes effect.

    • When WEP40 is used, enter a string of 5 characters.
    • When WEP104 is used, enter a string of 13 characters.

    Key 1

    Key 2

    Key 3

    Key 4

    WPA

    Authentication mode

    Authentication mode when the security policy is WPA.

    • 802.1x: authentication using the RADIUS server and Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP). 802.1x only controls the authentication process, and authentication protocols complete authentication. 802.1x is applicable to large enterprises with high security requirements.
    • PSK: Wi-Fi protected access pre-shared key (WPA-PSK) authentication mode, which does not require a dedicated authentication server. Users only need to set a pre-shared key on each WLAN node. A WLAN client can access the WLAN if its shared key is the same as that configured on the WLAN server.

    Encryption mode

    Encryption mode used by WPA.

    • CCMP: Counter Mode with CBC-MAC Protocol (CCMP) uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithms to periodically update the key on hardware, improving WLAN security.
    • TKIP: Temporal key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) also uses the RC4 algorithms but it is more secure than WEP.

    Key

    Pre-shared key used by PSK.

    WPA2

    Authentication mode

    Authentication mode when the security policy is WPA2.

    • 802.1x: authentication using the RADIUS server and EAP. 802.1x only controls the authentication process, and authentication protocols complete authentication. 802.1x is applicable to large enterprises with high security requirements.
    • PSK: WPA-PSK authentication mode, which does not require a dedicated authentication server. Users only need to set a pre-shared key on each WLAN node. A WLAN client can access the WLAN if its shared key is the same as that configured on the WLAN server.

    Encryption mode

    Encryption mode used by WPA.

    • CCMP: CCMP uses the AES algorithms to periodically update the key, improving WLAN security.
    • TKIP: TKIP also uses the RC4 algorithms but it is more secure than WEP.

    Key

    Pre-shared key used by PSK.

    WAPI

    Authentication Mode

    PSK authentication mode used by WAPI.

    Key

    Pre-shared key used by PSK.
