11 ORiNOCO AP-600 User Guide Introduction 1 Document Conventions Introduction to Wireless Networking IEEE Specifications Management and Monitoring Capabilities Document Conventions The term, AP, refers to an Access Point. The term, , is used to describe features that apply to the a, b, and g wireless standards. A Single-radio AP is an Access Point that supports one IEEE radio standard. The AP-600 is a Single-radio AP. A Dual-radio AP is an Access Point that includes two radios; it can support one or two IEEE radio standards (depending on the type of radios installed). The AP-2000 is a Dual-radio AP. An a AP is an Access Point that supports the IEEE a standard. An b AP is an Access Point that supports the IEEE b standard. An b/g AP is an Access Point that supports the IEEE g standard. Blue underlined text indicates a link to a topic or Web address. If you are viewing this documentation on your computer, click the blue text to jump to the linked item. A Note indicates important information that helps you make better use of your computer.! CAUTION A Caution indicates either potential damage to hardware or loss of data and tells you how to avoid the problem. Introduction to Wireless Networking An AP extends the capability of an existing Ethernet network to devices on a wireless network. Wireless devices can connect to a single Access Point, or they can move between multiple Access Points located within the same vicinity. As wireless clients move from one coverage cell to another, they maintain network connectivity. To determine the best location for an Access Point, Proxim recommends conducting a Site Survey before placing the device in its final location. For information about how to conduct a Site Survey, contact your local reseller. Before an Access Point can be configured for your specific networking requirements, it must first be initialized. See Getting Started for details. 11
12 Introduction Figure 1-1 Typical wireless network access infrastructure Once initialized, the network administrator can configure each unit according to the network s requirements. The AP functions as a wireless network access point to data networks. An AP network provides: Seamless client roaming Easy installation and operation Over-the-air encryption of data High speed network links Guidelines for Roaming An AP can only communicate with client devices that support its wireless standard. For example, an a client cannot communicate with an b AP and an b client cannot communicate with an a AP. However, both b and g clients can communicate with an b/g AP. All Access Points must have the same Network Name to support client roaming. All workstations with an client adapter installed must use either a Network Name of any or the same Network Name as the Access Points that they will roam between. If an AP has Closed System enabled, a client must have the same Network Name as the Access Point to communicate (see Interfaces). All Access Points and clients must have the same security settings to communicate. The Access Points cells must overlap to ensure that there are no gaps in coverage and to ensure that the roaming client will always have a connection available. The coverage area of an b or b/g AP is larger than the coverage area of an a AP. The b and b/g APs operate in the 2.4 GHz frequency band; the a AP operates in the 5 GHz band. Products that operate in the 2.4 GHz band offer greater range than products that operate in the 5 GHz band. An a or b/g AP operates at faster data rates than the b AP a and g products operate at speeds of up to 54 Mbits/sec; b products operate at speeds of up to 11 Mbits/sec. All Access Points in the same vicinity should use a unique, independent Channel. By default, the AP automatically scans for available Channels during boot-up but you can also set the Channel manually (see Interfaces for details). Access Points that use the same Channel should be installed as far away from each other as possible to reduce potential interference. 12
13 Introduction IEEE Specifications In 1997, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) adopted the standard for wireless devices operating in the 2.4 GHz frequency band. This standard includes provisions for three radio technologies: direct sequence spread spectrum, frequency hopping spread spectrum, and infrared. Devices that comply with the standard operate at a data rate of either 1 or 2 Megabits per second (Mbits/sec). In 1999, the IEEE modified the standard to support direct sequence devices that can operate at speeds of up to 11 Mbits/sec. The IEEE ratified this standard as b b devices are backwards compatible with 2.4 GHz direct sequence devices (that operate at 1 or 2 Mbits/sec). Available Frequency Channels vary by regulatory domain and/or country. See b Channel Frequencies for details. Also in 1999, the IEEE modified the standard to support devices operating in the 5 GHz frequency band. This standard is referred to as a a devices are not compatible with 2.4 GHz or b devices a radios use a radio technology called Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) to achieve data rates of up to 54 Mbits/sec. Available Frequency Channels vary by regulatory domain and/or country. See a Channel Frequencies for details. In 2003, the IEEE introduced the g standard g devices operate in the 2.4 GHz frequency band using OFDM to achieve data rates of up to 54 Mbits/sec. In addition, g devices are backwards compatible with b devices. Available Frequency Channels vary by regulatory domain and/or country. See g Channel Frequencies for details. Management and Monitoring Capabilities There are several management and monitoring interfaces available to the network administrator to configure and manage an AP on the network: HTTP Interface Command Line Interface SNMP Management HTTP Interface The HTTP Interface (Web browser Interface) provides easy access to configuration settings and network statistics from any computer on the network. You can access the HTTP Interface over your LAN (switch, hub, etc.), over the Internet, or with a crossover Ethernet cable connected directly to your computer s Ethernet Port. Command Line Interface The Command Line Interface (CLI) is a text-based configuration utility that supports a set of keyboard commands and parameters to configure and manage an AP. Users enter Command Statements, composed of CLI Commands and their associated parameters. Statements may be issued from the keyboard for real time control, or from scripts that automate configuration. For example, when downloading a file, administrators enter the download CLI Command along with IP Address, file name, and file type parameters. You access the CLI over a HyperTerminal serial connection or via Telnet. During initial configuration, you can use the CLI over a serial port connection to configure an Access Point s IP address. When accessing the CLI via Telnet, you can communicate with the Access Point from over your LAN (switch, hub, etc.), from over the Internet, or with a crossover Ethernet cable connected directly to your computer s Ethernet Port. See Command Line Interface (CLI) for more information on the CLI and for a list of CLI commands and parameters. 13
14 Introduction SNMP Management In addition to the HTTP and the CLI interfaces, you can also manage and configure an AP using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). Note that this requires an SNMP manager program, like HP Openview or Castlerock s SNMPc. The AP supports several Management Information Base (MIB) files that describe the parameters that can be viewed and/or configured over SNMP: MIB-II (RFC 1213) Bridge MIB (RFC 1493) Ethernet-like MIB (RFC 1643) MIB ORiNOCO Enterprise MIB Proxim provides these MIB files on the CD included with each Access Point. You need to compile one or more of the above MIBs into your SNMP program s database before you can manage an Access Point using SNMP. Refer to the documentation that came with your SNMP manager for instructions on how to compile MIBs. The Enterprise MIB defines the read and read-write objects that can be viewed or configured using SNMP. These objects correspond to most of the settings and statistics that are available with the other management interfaces. Refer to the Enterprise MIB for more information; the MIB can be opened with any text editor, such as Microsoft Word, Notepad, or WordPad. The remainder of this guide describes how to configure an AP using the HTTP Web interface or the CLI interface. For information on how to manage devices using SNMP, refer to the documentation that came with your SNMP program. Also, refer to the MIB files for information on the parameters available via SNMP. 14
15 ORiNOCO AP-600 User Guide Getting Started 2 Prerequisites Product Package System Requirements Hardware Installation Initialization Download the Latest Software Additional Hardware Features Prerequisites Before installing an AP, you need to gather certain network information. The following section identifies the information you need. Network Name (SSID of the wireless cards) AP s IP Address HTTP Password CLI Password SNMP Read Password SNMP Read-Write Password Security Settings Authentication Method Authentication Server Shared Secret Authentication Server Authentication Port Client IP Address Pool Allocation Scheme DNS Server IP Address You must assign the Access Point a Network Name before wireless users can communicate with it. The clients also need the same Network Name. This is not the same as the System Name, which applies only to the Access Point. The network administrator typically provides the Network Name. If you do not have a DHCP server on your network, then you need to assign the Access Point an IP address that is valid on your network. Each Access Point requires a read/write password to access the web interface. The default password is public. Each Access Point requires a read/write password to access the CLI interface. The default password is public. Each Access Point requires a password to allow get requests from an SNMP manager. The default password is public. Each Access Point requires a password to allow get and set requests from an SNMP manager. The default password is public. You need to determine what security features you will enable on the Access Point. A primary authentication server may be configured; a backup authentication server is optional. The network administrator typically provides this information. This is a password shared between the Access Point and the RADIUS authentication server (so both passwords must be the same), and is typically provided by the network administrator. This is a port number (default is 1812) and is typically provided by the network administrator. The Access Point can automatically provide IP addresses to clients as they sign on. The network administrator typically provides the IP Pool range. The network administrator typically provides this IP Address. 15
