The wireless menu contains all the parameters relative to the wireless interface. The menu is divided into groups:
- Radio Settings
- Wireless Network
The Radio Settings menu, shown below, is used to configure all the radio-related parameters:
- Medium access control instructs the radio to operate using the standard IEEE 802.11 MAC (CSMA) or the Bitlomat proprietary point-to-multipoint protocol (TDMA).
- Country Code must be set according to the country of operation. To ensure device operation follows regulatory compliance rules, please make sure to select your correct country where the device will be used.
- Channel Width is the spectral width of the wireless channel. Supported widths are 5, 10, 20/40 MHz. Please make sure to set the same with on both ends of the wireless link.
Note that it’s not possible to choose the frequency as that depends on the Base Station to which the CPE connects.
- Transmission Power is the actual radio emitted power in dBm. Different countries have different regulation. The radio automatically obeys the regulation of the selected country.
- Distance represents the estimated link distance.
- Modulation Code Scheme defines the data rate (in Mbps) at which the device should transmit wireless packets. It is recommended to use automatic option.
- SSID is the Name of the IEEE 802.11 Service Set of the Base Station to connect to. The CPE can scan for SSIDs by clicking on the SCAN button
- BSSID can be optionally specified as the MAC address of the Base Station to which the CPE is connecting to.
- Security supports none, WPA, and WPA2 security options.
- IP Address is the IP address of the wireless interface. The IP address can be statically configured or automatically set via DHCP if properly configured in the Base Station.
- Netmask is the subnet mask of the IP address of the wireless interface.
The LAN menu is used to configure the wired LAN connected to private customer network. The LAN menu page settings are:
- IP Address is the private IP address of the LAN interface.
- Netmask is the subnet mask of the private IP address of the LAN interface.
- MTU defines the size (in bytes) of the largest protocol data unit the interface can pass on.
- DHCP Server can be optionally enabled to automatically assign IP addresses to LAN PCs/devices.
