TX Power: The transmit power can be set to a bare minimum or maximum power for better performance or power saving. Security This router provides complete wireless LAN security functions, included are WEP, IEEE 802.11x, IEEE 802.11x with WEP, WPA with pre-shared key and WPA with RADIUS. With these security functions, you can prevent your wireless LAN from illegal access.
IEEE 802.1x is an authentication protocol. Every user must use a valid account to login to this Access Point before accessing the wireless LAN. The authentication is processed by a RADIUS server. This mode only authenticates users by IEEE 802.1x, but it does not encrypt the data during communication WEP When you select 64-bit or 128-bit WEP key, you have to enter WEP keys to encrypt data. You can generate the key by yourself and enter it. You can enter four WEP keys and select one of them as a default key.
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an advanced security standard. You can use a preshared key to authenticate wireless stations and encrypt data during communication. It uses TKIP or CCMP (AES) to change the encryption key frequently, so the encryption key is not easy to be cracked by hackers. This is the best security available. WPA-Radius Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an advanced security standard.
This wireless router supports MAC Address Control, which prevents unauthorized clients from accessing your wireless network. • • • Enable wireless access control: Enables the wireless access control function Adding an address into the list: Enter the "MAC Address" and "Comment" of the wireless station to be added and then click "Add".
