Configuring WA3002G4 for wireless access.

After setting your modem for “Always on” (PPPoE) mode, you may wish to access internet wirelessly through your laptops. This post will help you in this regard.

You can view my previous blog post regarding how to configure WA3002G4 for internet access using PPPoE mode here.

1. Open your browser, preferable IE and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar to access your modem. Type the username and password both as admin, and continue to the Device Info page.

Note: If you have configured your modem properly, you will be assigned a Default Gateway.

2. Next click on the Wireless option in the left panel. Here you can encounter 2 cases.

Case 1: Wireless may have been enabled in your modem.

You will get the following window:

Another check you could make is whether the the light under the WLAN text in your modem is on. If both are happening, then the wireless in your modem is on. Set all the fields as in the image. You can move on to the next step.

Case 2: Wireless is disabled in your modem.

Your browser will show the following window.

The WLAN light in the modem will be off. In this case you just check the Enable Wireless option. Click on Save/Apply and wait for the page to reload and you will get a page as in Case 1. The WLAN light will turn on. Set the fields to as in the image. Proceed to Step 3.

3. We need to secure our wireless connection, so that no one else uses it. You can have higher security, about which I am not discussing here. I will only mention about the basic security measure.

Click on Security, below Wireless in the left panel.

Now select Enabled in the WEP Encryption drop down menu. You will get the following window.

Now choose your Encryption Strength as you wish, either 64-bit or 128-bit. Choose Network Key as 1. Enter the Network Key in the Network Key 1 box. The number of characters are predefined according to the strength. Please note the rules in the bottom of the screen and type the exact no. of characters. Next click Save/Apply.

4. You will get the following page. I have considered the Network Key as xxxxx. Your browser will display the Network Key you typed previously.

Now you can close your browser.

5. Turn on wireless in your laptop/PC.

You will notice the wireless icon in your taskbar. Right click on it to and select View Wireless Connections. Then you will see the DSL wireless service provider with name UTSTarcom. Just click on that and type in Network Key what you have given before then just click Connect. You would have established wireless network connection with your router. I cannot provide an image for this step due to hardware issues.

Hope this method works fine. Better securities can be obtained by changing Network Authentication type.

Please post your queries.
