Point-to-Point Link Settings

A transparent point-to-point link consists of two units operating in Link Master and Link Slave, respectively.

Link Master

Wireless Menu

The wireless menu contains all the parameters relative to the wireless interface. The menu is divided into groups:

  • Radio Settings
  • Wireless Network
  • 0. Point to point

 

Radio Settings

The Radio Settings menu, shown below, is used to configure all the radio-related parameters:

  • 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 and 40 MHz.
  • Frequency is the spectral frequency of operation of the wireless channel.
  • Extension Channel indicates the use of channel bonding that allows the radio to use two channels at once.
  • 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.

Wireless Network

When the wireless interface is operated as a Home Router, the wireless interface is bridged with the LAN interface. Therefore, there is no need to specify any IP address for the wireless interface.

  • SSID is the Name of the IEEE 802.11 Service Set and is used by the CPEs/clients to connect.
  • Hide SSID will disable advertising the SSID in broadcast messages to the CPEs/clients.
  • Client Isolation allows packets to be sent only from the external network to the CPE and vice versa, thus preventing different CPEs to communicate with each other.
  • Security supports none, WPA, and WPA2 security options.

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.

The wireless menu contains all the parameters relative to the wireless interface. The menu is divided into groups:

  • Radio Settings
  • Wireless Network
  • 0. Point to point

  • Channel Width is the spectral width of the wireless channel. Supported widths are 5, 10, 20 and 40 MHz. Please 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.

Wireless Network

When the wireless interface is operated as a Home Router, the wireless interface is bridged with the LAN interface. Therefore, there is no need to specify any IP address for the wireless interface.

  • 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.
