For best results place your Sky Hub: In a central location if you will have several devices connecting to it wirelessly In an elevated position such as on a high shelf Away from potential sources of interference e.g. microwaves, baby monitors and cordless phones Away, if possible, from electrical equipment e.g. fluorescent lighting, fans with a motor Away from large metal surfaces Try your Sky Hub in different locations to find the best positon and always stand the Sky Hub upright. If you install your Sky Hub in a non-optimal location or lay it horizontally it may result in reduced performance Wireless Network help Name (SSID): Region: Europe Channel: Auto 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 Mode: Auto 54g Auto 54g Performance 54g LRS 802.11b Only Wireless Access Point help Enable Wireless Access Point Enable WPS Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID) Wireless Isolation Wireless Station Access List help Setup Access List Security Options help Disable WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) WPA2-PSK (AES) WPA/WPA2-PSK (Mixed Mode) WPA-802.1x --> WEP Security Encryption help Authentication Type: Open System Shared Key Encryption Strength: 64 bit(10 hex digits) 128 bit(26 hex digits) WEP Key help Pass Phrase: Key1 :

--> Cancel Apply Wireless NetworkName (SSID) We have set the name of your Sky Hub to SKY xxxx. Each Sky Hub has a different name. When you connect other devices wirelessly to your Sky Hub this is the name you will need to select from the list of networks available in your area. You can change the name of your Sky Hub to something you may more easily remember containing up to 32 alphanumeric characters. Note the name is case sensitive, 'A' is not the same as 'a'. Region We have set the region by default to Europe. You shouldn't need to change this. It may not be legal to operate the Sky Hub in a region other than the region shown here. If the region is incorrect use the dropdown menu and select Europe. Channel We assign different channels to your Sky Hub randomly to minimise interference with other wireless networks in your area. It shouldn't be necessary to change the wireless channel unless you notice interference problems from another nearby wireless network. It's recommended you leave this set to Auto. Mode We have set the default as Auto to provide the most flexibility. You shouldn't need to change it. If you wish to change this mode the options are: 802.11n only - Set the mode to 802.11n only if you are having difficulty connecting a device to your Sky Hub. This will mean you are connecting to 802.11n devices only. 802.11n+g Performance - Set the mode to 802.11n+g Performance for the fastest performance among 802.11n+g certified equipment. --> 54g Auto - Set the mode to 54g Auto for compatibility with older wireless devices 54g Performance - Set the mode to 54g Performance for the fastest performance among 54g devices 54g LRS - Setting the mode to 54g-LRS (Limited Rate Support) allows some older 802.1b devices to connect to your Sky Hub 802.11 b only - Set the mode to 802.11b only to connect 802.11b devices only g & b - Both 802.11g and 802.11b wireless stations can be used. g only - Only 802.11g wireless stations can be used. Auto 108Mbps - All 802.11g, 802.11b and Sky 108Mbps wireless stations can be used. --> 802.11b - 11Mps. 802.11g - 54Mps. The default is "g & b", which allows both "g" and "b" wireless stations to access this device. --> Enable Wireless Access Point The Wireless Access Point of your Sky Hub can be enabled or disabled to allow wireless connection of your wireless devices. The wireless icon on the front of your Sky Hub will be illuminated if itís enabled. If Enabled, connecting devices (computers, tablets, games consoles etc.) will be able to access the Internet wirelessly. If Disabled, connecting devices (computers, tablets, games consoles etc.) won't be able to access the Internet wirelessly. Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID) If Enabled, the Sky Hub will broadcast its name to every device. Wireless Isolation This feature is disabled by default and enabling it is not recommended. If it is enabled, wireless stations can't communicate with each other. Enable WPS WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) allows you to easily connect devices to the Sky Hub using either the WPS Push Button or PIN configuration. The WPS button is located on the front panel of your Sky Hub. Your Sky Hub is automatically enabled for WPS. You won't be able to use WPS if you are using WEP (Wireless Equivalent privacy) or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key). WPS PIN Your eight digit WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) PIN is static and assigned to your Sky Hub by default. You should enter this PIN if requested by a device you are connecting to your Sky Hub. This PIN appears on the rear panel label on your Sky Hub and also on the Connect card supplied with your Sky Hub packaging. Wireless Station Access List By default, any wireless device that is configured with the correct name (SSID) and security credentials will be allowed access to your wireless network. For increased security, you can restrict access to your wireless network to only allow specific devices based on their 'MAC' address. To do this, select the Setup Access List link to display the Wireless Station Access List menu. Security Options We have set a default security setting to prevent unauthorised access to your Sky Hub. This is specific to your Sky Hub and is not a generic password. If you wish to change your security settings select the desired option, and ensure all your connecting devices (computers) have the same setting. Disable - This will disable the security function on your wireless network. Data will not be encrypted before transmission. We donít recommend selecting this setting. WEP - WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) encrypts data before transmission. All connecting devices (computers) need to use the same settings (WEP Key size and WEP key).This is the minimal security level you should use. WPA-PSK - This version of WPA uses a PSK (Pre-shared Key) for authentication. All connecting devices need to use the same PSK (Pre-shared Key). WPA is more secure than WEP, and should be used if possible. WPA2-PSK - WPA2 is an improvement on the WPA-PSK standard. With this only users with passwords can access your network. WPA2-PSK improves on the WPA standard by encrypting the signal at a higher bitrate. WPA-802.1x - This version of WPA requires the use of a Radius server for authentication. Each user (Wireless Client) must have a "user" login on the Radius Server. Data transmissions are encrypted using a key which is automatically generated. Do not use this unless you are an advanced user. --> WEP Security Encryption Authentication Type Normally this can be left at the default value of Open Syste. If that fails, select the appropriate value - Shared. Check your wireless card's documentation to see what method to use Encryption Strength Select the WEP Encryption level 64-bit (sometimes called 40-bit) encryption 128-bit encryption WEP Key You can manually or automatically program the data encryption key. The value must be identical on all devices and Access Points in your network. You should make a note and keep the key safe to make it easier to connect all your devices. Automatic Key Generation (Passphrase) Enter a word or group of printable characters in the Passphrase box and click the Generate button to automatically configure the WEP Key. If encryption strength is set to 128 bit, then the key box will automatically be populated with a 26 hexadecimal digit key value. If encryption strength is set to 64 bit, then the key box will automatically be populated with a 10 hexadecimal digit key value. Manual Entry Mode Enter the WEP key information for your network in the selected key box. For 64 bit WEP - Enter ten hexadecimal digits (any combination of 0-9, A-F) For 128 bit WEP - Enter twenty-six hexadecimal digits (any combination of 0-9, A-F) WPA-PSK Security Encryption For WPA-PSK, you need to enter the Network Key here. The Key must be from 8 to 63 ASCII characters. Your connecting devices (computers) must use the same key or password.
