Chapter 2 Hardware Installation


This chapter describes initial setup of the AC100 system.

Before You Begin

Thank you for purchasing Brovis Wireless Networks of Wireless AC100 series products.
These Products offer fast, reliable wireless connectivity with considerable cost savings
over wired alternatives. Utilizing 2.4 GHz ISM frequency spectrum, the AC100 can
easily replace a wired inter office connection and seamlessly integrate into legacy 10/100
Mbps Ethernet LAN and backbone connectivity. Please check the package contents
before you begin.

2.1 Package Contents

Be sure the following items are in the package. If the package is not complete, please
contact BroVis Wireless Networks technical support, or return the package to the vendor
or dealer where you purchased the product.

 AC100 either SP or HP Mode With POE accessories


 UTP Cable
 Installation manual

Note Please contact support@brovis.com for support. Please inform us if there are any
incorrect, missing or damaged parts. If possible, retain the carton, including the original
packing materials. Use them again to repack the product if there is a need to return it for
repair.

2.2 System Requirements

Before you install the AC100 CPE, be sure you have the following items on- hand:

o An AC power outlet 100-240V (50/60 Hz which will supply power to the AC100
CPE through power over Ethernet cable)
o A 10/100 Base-T (UTP) Ethernet cable drop
o An available RJ -45 (UTP) port on the 10/100Mbps Ethernet hub or switch

© 2004 Proprietary Information of BroVis Wireless Networks


AC100 User Manual

Important The AC100 CPE has been designed to withstand normal handling procedures,
but reasonable precautions should be exercised during the installation, particularly with
regard to static discharge.

2.3 Mechanical Description

Waterproof RJ-45 connector


Connect to the POE with UTP cable.

UTP Cable
This cable is attached to the AC100 CPE. (default cable length)

2.4 Setting up the AC100 CPE

• The AC100 CPE is set up as SRPP unit and connects to your network (back bone)
with a standard Ethernet cable. Power to the unit is provided via a POE (Power
over Ethernet) system.
Tip Before you mount the AC100 CPE to a fixed location, consider the following
requirements to determine the optimal placement:

• The cable length from the Ethernet network to the AC100 must not exceed 328 ft
(100 meters).
• Placement must allow for easy access to disconnect the AC100 CPE unit from the
AC power outlet if necessary.

2.5 Installing AC100 CPE

Follow these steps to install the AC100 CPE:

• Connect the power adapter cable to the POE power injector and plug the power
adapter into the wall outlet.
Warning: Use only the power adapter supplied with this package in order to
prevent damage and void warranty.

© 2004 Proprietary Information of BroVis Wireless Networks


AC100 User Manual
• Connect the Ethernet cable — The Ethernet cable from the AC100 CPE should be
connected to the power out of the POE. An Ethernet cable from the data in of the
POE is connected to a 10/100Mbps ethernet network through a switch or router.

Fig 2: AC100 POE Connection Diagram

2.6 Installing and Aligning the CPE

To ensure maximum performance and stability of your wireless connection, it is crucial


that you determine the right locations based on the following criteria:

• Establish a good signal path, ideally with visual line of sight and adequate Fresnel
clearance, between the two end points.
• Minimize the distance between the two end points.
• Minimize reflections from other objects

Chapter 3 Configuration
3.1 Command Line Interface
The AC-100 CPE can be configured through the command line interface (CLI). The CLI
allows viewing and modification of the configuration from a terminal or PC through a
Telnet connection. To access the CLI, use Telnet to log in to the device using its IP
address. The CLI prompts for a login user name and password and displays a version
banner and a CLI prompt. The CLI is now ready to accept commands.

User Login
The default login username is “Admin” and the default password is
“5up”.
login: Admin
Password: ***
BroVis Wireless Networks Base Station Rev 3.3.0.136
->
Note: When the login and password are set to a non-null string, both the login and
password entries are case-sensitive.

User Logoff
--> quit
After quitting the CLI, re-initiate the login sequence to log into the CLI.

3.2 CLI Commands
All CLI commands are case-insensitive. Enter either the entire CLI command string or
partial unique CLI command string.
For example:
--> get rate
Data Rate: best
--> g rate
Data Rate: best
Note: The configuration changes do not take effect until the CPE is rebooted.

WEP/AES Key Configuration


The CLI key commands enable configuration of shared and unique Wired Equivalent
Privacy (WEP) or Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) keys. Key IDs 1 to 4 are
reserved for shared key IDs, and key IDs 5 to 2048 are reserved for unique key IDs. Note
that the actual set of the unique key is still limited to 60 keys. The key IDs identify these
60 unique keys. The keys must be input as hexadecimal digits. Choose between 40-bit,
104-bit, or 128-bit encryption keys. For 40-bit encryption, the key string is 10 characters
long. For 104-bit encryption, the key string is 26 characters long. For 128-bit encryption,
the key string is 32 characters long. For AES encryption, a built-in extension algorithm
will extend the 40- bit and 64-bit keys into a 128-bit key automatically. The get station
command will return the original key. Use get/set key command to display or modify
AES or WEP key configuration. WEP uses set key 1 default. The default key command

Access Control List


The access control list (ACL) allows an administrator to perform security actions based
on the client station MAC address. This can be used to allow or deny association with the
AC100 and for unique per station encryption key assignment. Use the following
commands to view ACL status or entries.
get configuration- Display the access control status
get acl- Display the access control list
get acl xxx -Display an access control list entry
-> get acl
acl 1: 01:02:03:04:05:06- access allowed
acl 2:0a:0b:0c:0d:0e:0f- access denied
-> get acl 1
acl 1:01:02:03:04:05:06- access allowed

Enable/Disable/Restrict Access Control List


Configure the ACL using disable, enable, or strict. By default, while the checking of the
ACL is enabled, the ACL itself is empty. This is the same as disabling the checking on
the ACL. Therefore, an ACL entry must exist before enabling an ACL. While an ACL is
enabled, stations with valid share keys and stations with matching “allow” entries on the
ACL are authenticated. Alternatively, configure the checking of the ACL to strict to
require an ACL entry that specifies the station’s assigned unique key or the station is
denied association. In strict mode, stations with valid share keys that are not on the ACL
are not authenticated. The stations must have unique keys defined and matching “allow”
ACL entries specified to associate with the AC100.
set acl enable -- Select Restricted Access
set acl disable -- Select Unrestricted Access
