Wireless Security for the PLC Systems GPN2-4P21-C-CNRouter Sceenshot
PLC Wireless Router Firmware Version : W2000EN-00 setup advanced maintenance status help Wireless Security To protect your privacy you can configure wireless security features. This device supports three wireless security modes including: WEP, WPA, WPA2 and WPA2 Mixed. WEP is the original wireless encryption standard. WPA provides a higher level of security. Wireless SSID Select SSID : Wireless Security Mode To protect your privacy you can configure wireless security features. This device supports three wireless security modes including: WEP, WPA-PSK, and WPA. WEP is the original wireless encryption standard. WPA provides a higher level of security. WPA-PSK does not require an authentication server. The WPA option requires an external RADIUS server. Wireless Security Mode : None WEP WPA only WPA2 only WPA/WP2 Mixed --> WEP If you choose the WEP security option this device will ONLY operate in Legacy Wireless mode (802.11B/G) . WEP is the wireless encryption standard. To use it you must enter the same key(s) into the router and the wireless stations. For 64 bit keys you must enter 10 hex digits into each key box. For 128 bit keys you must enter 26 hex digits into each key box. A hex digit is either a number from 0 to 9 or a letter from A to F. For the most secure use of WEP set the authentication type to "Shared Key" when WEP is enabled. You may also enter any text string into a WEP key box, in which case it will be converted into a hexadecimal key using the ASCII values of the characters. A maximum of 5 text characters can be entered for 64 bit keys, and a maximum of 13 characters for 128 bit keys. WEP Key Length : 64 bit 128 bit ( length applies to all keys ) Default Tx Key : 1 2 3 4 WEP Key Format : ASCII (5 characters) HEX (10 characters) WEP Key1 : WEP Key2 : WEP Key3 : WEP Key4 : Authentication : Open Share Key WPA Use WPA or WPA2 mode to achieve a balance of strong security and best compatibility. This mode uses WPA for legacy clients while maintaining higher security with stations that are WPA2 capable. Also the strongest cipher that the client supports will be used. For best security, use WPA2 Only mode. This mode uses AES(CCMP) cipher and legacy stations are not allowed access with WPA security. For maximum compatibility, use WPA Only . This mode uses TKIP cipher. Some gaming and legacy devices work only in this mode. To achieve better wireless performance use WPA2 Only security mode (or in other words AES cipher). WPA-PSK does not require an authentication server. The WPA option requires an external RADIUS server. WPA Mode : WPA-Personal WPA-Enterprise Encryption Mode : TKIP AES Both Group Key Update Interval : (60 - 65535) Pre-Shared Key Pre-Shared Key : (8 = EAP (802.1x) When WPA enterprise is enabled, the router uses EAP (802.1x) to authenticate clients via a remote RADIUS server. Authentication Timeout : --> RADIUS server IP Address : RADIUS server Port : RADIUS server Shared Secret : Helpful Hints... If you have enabled Wireless Security, make sure you write down WEP or Passphrase Key that you have configured. You will need to enter this information on any wireless device that you connect to your wireless network. More... Copyright © 2005-2012 PLC Systems, Inc.
