Click on the Wireless tab.
If WEP is enabled, the wireless key for your Versalink is located in the Wireless Security information box and labeled Key 1.
To edit the wireless setting of your Versalink, click on the Configuration button.
Note: AT&T does not recommend disabling Encryption. Make sure the Enable box remains checked.
Default Setting = Enabled. When disabled, no wireless adapters will be able to connect to the VersaLink.
* Network Name (SSID)
This is where you enter a name (32 characters or less) of your choice for the Versalink to use to identify itself as a wireless access point.
The Versalink transmits and receives data on this channel. The number of channels to choose from is pre-programmed into the Versalink card. Wireless adapters do not have to be set to the same channel as the Versalink; the wireless adapters scan all channels, and look for an access point to connect to.
This setting can restrict the type of wireless adapter that can communicate with the VersaLink.
Mixed: Station using any of the 802.11b, 802.11b+, and 802.11g rates can communicate with VersaLink.
11b only: Communication with VersaLink is limited to
802.11b 11b+: Stations using any of the 802.11b and 802.11b+ rates can communicate with VersaLink
11g only: Communication with VersaLink is limited to 802.11g
Default Setting = Disabled. When selected, this enables/disables the 4X option. If enabled, 4X support provides additional algorithms for increased throughput. The wireless adapters cards must also support this option.
Default Setting = Disabled. If Enabled, Versa Link will not broadcast the SSID. Stations must configure the SSID to match the Network Name (SSID) to connect to VersaLink.
* Wireless Security
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy): IF WEP is enabled, the risk of someone nearby accessing the Versalink is minimized. The Versalink supports 64-bit, 128-bit, or 256-bit WEP encryption. NOTE: 256-bit encryption is not supported with most wireless clients.
WPA-PSK (WiFi Protected Access - Pre-Shared Key): WPA is a more secure alternative to WEP, but requires that your wireless client support it.
Disabled: If WEP is disabled, any station can connect to the Versalink (as long as its SSID matches the Versalink SSID).
Default Setting = Open System. Possible Response:
Open System: Open System authentication is the default selection.
Shared Key: To use Shared Key authentication, WEP must be enabled, and a valid WEP key must be present. Enabling WEP does not force the use of Shared Key authentication. It is permissible to have WEP enabled and still use Open System authentication.
Key Select Default Setting = Key 1. This setting specifies which of the 4 keys that are defined is currently being used by the Versalink for wireless authentication.
* Key 1-4
The WEP key is treated as a string of hexadecimal characters, and the number of characters must be either 10 (for 64-bit encryption), 26 (for 128-bit encryption), or 58 (for 256-bit encryption). The only allowable hexadecimal characters are 0-9 and A-F.
NOTE: The WEP key must be the same value and type for both VersaLink and the wireless network adapter.
MAC Address Filtering
Default Setting = Disabled. If Enabled, only the stations in the MAC Filter Table can connect to VersaLink.
MAC Filter Table button
Selecting this button allows access to the Wireless MAC Address Filter Table.
Click Save to apply any changes you make to the configuration of your Versalink.
