Clients currently connected on this radio could be affected. WPS PIN Enter the Wi-Fi Client's all digit PIN, Submit, then follow the Wi-Fi client instructions. WPS PIN      e.g. 12345670 --> WPS Virtual Pushbutton Click the pushbutton associated with the SSID you want to use, then follow the Wi-Fi client instructions. Help Radio Selection: Your device is equipped with 2 Wi-Fi radios. You should configure parameters for each radio and Save before switching to the other radio. The 5 GHz radio provides improved speed, but not all Wi-Fi clients support this band. If a client doesn't support it, it cannot see the 5 GHz Network SSID. Wi-Fi Operation: This is enabled by default. Turning it off will disable all Wi-Fi services. Mode: This option allows you to restrict the device to respond only to Wi-Fi LAN devices using the specified protocols. Do not change this setting unless you fully understand the implications of having your device ignore a given class of clients. Bandwidth: The higher the bandwidth, the faster the Wi-Fi speed. The default for this setting is the highest bandwidth available for the selected Mode. Do not change this setting unless you fully understand all the Wi-Fi settings and how they effect each other. Channel: The device can transfer data on various channels. If a nearby Wi-Fi network is transmitting on the same channel, this interferes with data transfer. If you experience speed problems on your Wi-Fi network, test whether a particular choice of channel improves the data transfer. Choosing automatic causes the device to select the best operating channel for its environment. Channel Scan: You can manually force the device to find the best channel by clicking 'Find Best Channel'. Client devices may be temporarily disconnected from Wi-Fi service while this check is performed. Power Level: The device can operate at a reduced power level to cover a smaller area. For instance, in a densely populated setting, you might reduce the transmit power to reduce interference with other Wi-Fi transmitters. Home/Guest SSID: A Wi-Fi client connected to a Home SSID may be able to communicate with other devices on that SSID and elsewhere on the LAN, as well as connect to the Internet. A Wi-Fi client connected to a Guest SSID can connect to the Internet, but whether or not it can communicate with other devices depends on the Network Access setting. SSID Enable: Each SSID, but especially the secondary SSIDs, may be enabled or disabled. Network Name (SSID): When a Wi-Fi client searches for available networks choosing this name will mean choosing this device for the Wi-Fi access point. Hide Network Name (SSID): When on, the device will hide its Network Name (SSID) from clients scanning for Wi-Fi networks. To connect to your Wi-Fi network, they must first know the Network Name. Security: Choose security to prevent outside access to your network. Your device and each client must be using the same password. OFF - No Privacy: This mode allows any Wi-Fi users to connect to your Wi-Fi network. WPA - PSK: This mechanism provides the best data protection and access control. The password (security key) can be 8-63 characters. At least 20 characters are recommended for best security. To enter a hex WPA password, enter a 64 character hex password preceded with 0x. WPA Version: This field allows you to select the WPA version(s) that will be required for client connections. Select 'Both' for maximum interoperability. WPA - Default Password: The WPA mechanism uses the factory installed default password unique to this device. WEP - Manual: The password (security key) should contain the specified number of characters consisting of numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F. Valid examples would be "941BC12A21" for 40/64 bit (10 characters), and "F12345678A0123456789ABCDEF" for 128 bit (26 characters). Wi-Fi Protected Setup: This device supports the use of Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). WPS provides a convenient way to add advanced secure Wi-Fi connections for multiple Wi-Fi certified WPS devices to your network. Older clients can continue to connect using the original security setting. WPS clients can connect and learn the security setting using the hardware pushbutton or PIN. The client machine(s) to be added should be powered on and their Wi-Fi interfaces operational. Maximum Clients: Each enabled SSID has a maximum number of clients it will allow to connect concurrently. The total maximum clients per Wi-Fi Radio is 128. The 5 GHz Radio supports up to 99 total clients; and if video is enabled, some clients may be reserved. Network Access: When set to 'Internet Only', Wi-Fi clients on the Guest SSID will have Internet access, but will not be able to contact any other LAN hosts, including the BGW210-700 device. When set to 'Internet & Home LAN', the Guest SSID behaves in a similar fashion to the Home SSID. Guest SSID Subnet: If Network Access is Internet Only (isolated), the Guest SSID Subnet indicates which subnet will be used for handing out DHCP leases to Wi-Fi clients connecting to this SSID. The default is to use the existing LAN subnet, but a separate subnet just for Guest clients can be used. WPS PIN: Enter the all digit PIN of your Wi-Fi client, click the Submit button for the SSID you want to connect to, then follow any instructions that came with your Wi-Fi client. WPS Virtual Pushbutton: Click the Pushbutton for the SSID you want to connect to, then follow any instructions that came with your Wi-Fi client. © 2016 AT&T Intellectual Property.
