Wireless Network (2.4GHz b/g/n)
The SSID is the WiFi network name. If you did not change the SSID, the default SSID for the
2.4 GHz band displays. The default SSID is also printed on the access point label (see Access
Point Label on page 8).
If you change the SSID, enter a 32-character (maximum), case-sensitive
name in this field.
From the Channel menu, select Auto for automatic channel selection or select an individual
channel. The default selection is Auto.
In some regions, not all channels are available. Do not change the channel
unless you experience interference (shown by lost connections or slow data
transfers). If this situation occurs, experiment with different channels to see
which is the best.
If you use multiple WiFi access points (APs), reduce interference by selecting
different channels for adjacent APs. We recommend a channel spacing of
four channels between adjacent APs (for example, use Channels 1 and 5,
or 6 and 10).
From the Mode menu, select one of the following modes:
•Up to 54 Mbps. Legacy mode. This mode allows 802.11n, 802.11g, and 802.11b devices
to join the network but limits 802.11n devices to functioning at up to 54 Mbps.
•Up to 145 Mbps. Neighbor-friendly mode for reduced interference with neighboring WiFi
networks. This mode allows 802.11n, 802.11g, and 802.11b devices to join the network
but limits 802.11n devices to functioning at up to 145 Mbps.
•Up to 300 Mbps. Performance mode. This mode allows 802.11n, 802.11g, and 802.11b
devices to join the network and allows 802.11n devices to function at up to 300 Mbps. This
mode is the default mode.
WPA-PSK security and WEP security support speeds of up to 54 Mbps.
Even if your devices are capable of a higher speed, WPA-PSK security
and WEP security limit their speed to 54 Mbps.
