Configuring Access Points

Before you begin to set up WiFi certification testing environment, you need to know how to configure your AP for the following changes.

  • Modify SSID (name of the wireless network)

  • Change transfer mode (802.11a/802.11b/802.11g/802.11n)

  • Change encryption protocol (none or WEP or WPA)

  • Change the pass phrase when encryption protocol is set to WEP or WPA

  • Enable or disable the DHCP server function

  • Change the DHCP IP address pool

  • Configure the wireless MAC filter (optional)

  • Change the IP address of AP (optional)

If your AP is capable of being a router, you also need to know the physical RJ45 port for WAN/Internet connection and the port for LAN connection. Refer to the user's manual of your AP to make the changes or consult your vendor for technical support.
