Network Name

This can be any name you want. U.S. Robotics recommends that you treat your network name like a password and use a combination of more than eight alphanumeric characters that is not easy to guess (such as “USR5461APOffice” or “Fish81Tree”).

Broadcast

If the access point broadcasts the network name, any wireless device can find out what it is and connect to the access point, unless you set further security measures, such as encryption, on the Security page. You can disable broadcast so that someone will need to enter the network name for a client to connect to the access point.

WDS

Please note that WDS connections do not support WPA2 security, RADIUS authentication or the combined TKIP and AES encryption. You will need to specify either WPA (PSK) and TKIP, WPA (PSK) and AES, WEP open, or WEP shared on the Security page.

Network Name (SSID)

This is the name of your wireless network. Wireless devices will need to know the network name (also known as an SSID) of your access point in order to communicate with it.

In order to hide your access point from new wireless devices, you can tell the access point to stop broadcasting the access point’s network name.

WDS Restrictions

When enabled only the access points whose MAC addresses are in this list can connect using WDS. Please note that any WDS device you will connect to must use one of the following security methods: WPA (PSK) with AES, WPA (PSK) with TKIP, WEP or None.
