Introduction 1.1 Overview This User’s Guide covers the following models: NWA1123-ACv2, NWA1123-AC PRO, NWA1123-AC HD, and NWA1302-AC. Your NWA1000 Series is a wireless Access Point (AP). The NWA1000 Series extends the range of your existing wired network without additional wiring, providing easy network access to mobile users. You can set up a wireless network with other IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac compatible devices. The NWA1000 Series is able to function both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks at the same time.

A WDS is a wireless connection between two or more APs. Your NWA1000 Series’s business-class reliability, SMB features, and centralized wireless management make it ideally suited for advanced service delivery in mission-critical networks. It uses Multiple BSSID and VLAN to provide simultaneous independent virtual APs. Additionally, innovations in roaming technology and QoS features eliminate voice call disruptions. The NWA1000 Series controls network access with Media Access Control (MAC) address filtering, and rogue Access Point (AP) detection. It also provides a high level of network traffic security, supporting IEEE 802.1x, Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 and Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) data encryption. Your NWA1000 Series is easy to install, configure and use. The embedded Web-based configurator enables simple, straightforward management and maintenance. See the Quick Start Guide for making hardware connections. 1.2 Applications This section shows some examples of using the NWA1000 Series in various network environments. 1.2.1 MBSSID A Basic Service Set (BSS) is the set of devices forming a single wireless network (usually an access point and one or more wireless clients). The Service Set IDentifier (SSID) is the name of a BSS. In Multiple BSS (MBSSID) mode, the NWA1000 Series provides multiple virtual APs, each forming its own BSS and using its own individual SSID profile. You can configure multiple SSID profiles, and have all of them active at any one time. You can assign different wireless and security settings to each SSID profile. This allows you to compartmentalize groups of users, set varying access privileges, and prioritize network traffic to and from certain BSSs. To the wireless clients in the network, each SSID appears to be a different access point. As in any wireless network, clients can associate only with the SSIDs for which they have the correct security settings. For example, you might want to set up a wireless network in your office where Internet telephony (VoIP) users have priority. You also want a regular wireless network for standard users, as well as a ‘guest’ wireless network for visitors. In the following figure, VoIP_SSID users have QoS priority, SSID01 is the wireless network for standard users, and Guest_SSID is the wireless network for guest users. In this example, the guest user is forbidden access to the wired Land Area Network (LAN) behind the AP and can access only the Internet. NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 13 Figure 1 Multiple BSSs 1.2.2 Dual-Radio Some of the NWA1000 Series models are equipped with dual wireless radios. This means you can configure two different wireless networks to operate simultaneously. Note: A different channel should be configured for each WLAN interface to reduce the effects of radio interference. You could use the 2.4 GHz band for regular Internet surfing and downloading while using the 5 GHz band for time sensitive traffic like high-definition video, music, and gaming. Chapter 1 Introduction NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 14 Figure 2 Dual-Radio Application Chapter 1 Introduction NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 15 Chapter 2 Management Modes NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 16 CHAPTER 2 Management Modes 2.1 Management Mode The NWA1000 Series is a hybrid access point, which means it can work either in standalone mode or in Nebula Cloud Management Mode (cloud mode). Standalone By default, the NWA1000 Series serves as a normal AP and is to be configured using its built-in web configurator or CLI (Command Line Interface), See Chapter 4 on page 31 for detailed information about the web configurator screens. Nebula Cloud Management In this mode, you can manage and monitor the NWA1000 Series through the Zyxel Nebula cloud-based network management system. See the NCC (Nebula Control Center) User’s Guide for how to configure Nebula managed devices. See Chapter 23 on page 191 if you want to change the NWA1000 Series’s VLAN setting or manually set its IP address. 2.1.1 Mode Changing This section describes how to change the NWA1000 Series’s management mode. From Standalone to Cloud To manage your NWA1000 Series via the Zyxel NCC, connect the NWA1000 Series to the Internet and register it to a site and organization in the NCC (http://nebula.zyxel.com) first using its serial number and MAC address or its QR code. The serial number, MAC address and QR code can be found in the web configurator dashboard or the label on the device. See the corresponding Quick Start Guide for how to do hardware connections and device registration. Note: The NWA1000 Series automatically goes into cloud mode after it can access the NCC through the specified proxy server (if any) and is successfully registered in the NCC. Its login password and wireless settings are then overwritten with what you have configured in the NCC. From Cloud to Standalone To return to the default standalone mode, just click Unregister to remove the NWA1000 Series from the organization/site in the NCC. The NWA1000 Series will reboot and restore the factory default settings. 2.2 Standalone AP Roles Depending on your network setup, your NWA1000 Series in standalone mode can adopt the following roles. 2.2.1 Root AP The NWA1000 Series (Z) can act as the root AP in a wireless network and also allow repeaters (X and Y) to extend the range of its wireless network at the same time. In the figure below, both clients A, B and C can access the wired network through the root AP. Figure 3 Root AP Application On the NWA1000 Series in Root AP mode, you can have multiple SSIDs active for regular wireless connections and one SSID for the connection with a repeater (repeater SSID). Wireless clients can use either SSID to associate with the NWA1000 Series in Root AP mode. A repeater must use the repeater SSID to connect to the NWA1000 Series in Root AP mode. When the NWA1000 Series is in Root AP mode, repeater security between the NWA1000 Series and other repeater is independent of the security between the wireless clients and the AP or repeater. When repeater security is enabled, both APs and repeaters must use the same pre-shared key. See Section 10.2 on page 79 and Section 13.2 on page 117 for more details. Unless specified, the term “security settings” refers to the traffic between the wireless clients and the AP. At the time of writing, repeater security is compatible with the NWA1000 Series only. Chapter 2 Management Modes NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 17 2.2.2 Repeater The NWA1000 Series can act as a wireless network repeater to extend a root AP’s wireless network range, and also establish wireless connections with wireless clients. Using Repeater mode, your NWA1000 Series can extend the range of the WLAN. In the figure below, the NWA1000 Series in Repeater mode (Z) has a wireless connection to the NWA1000 Series in Root AP mode (X) which is connected to a wired network and also has a wireless connection to another NWA1000 Series in Repeater mode (Y) at the same time. Z and Y act as repeaters that forward traffic between associated wireless clients and the wired LAN. Clients A and B access the AP and the wired network behind the AP through repeaters Z and Y. Figure 4 Repeater Application When the NWA1000 Series is in Repeater mode, repeater security between the NWA1000 Series and other repeater is independent of the security between the wireless clients and the AP or repeater. When repeater security is enabled, both APs and repeaters must use the same pre-shared key. See Section 10.2 on page 79 and Section 13.2 on page 117 for more details. Once the security settings of peer sides match one another, the connection between devices is made. At the time of writing, repeater security is compatible with the NWA1000 Series only.

Chapter 3 Hardware NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 29 PART I Standalone Configuration 30 CHAPTER 4 Standalone Mode 4.1 Overview The NWA1000 Series operates in standalone mode by default. Use the web configurator to manage and configure it directly. As shown in the following figure, wireless clients can connect to the NWA1000 Series (A) to access network resources. 4.2 Ways to Manage the NWA1000 Series You can use the following ways to manage the NWA1000 Series. Web Configurator The Web Configurator allows easy NWA1000 Series setup and management using an Internet browser. This User’s Guide provides information about the Web Configurator. Command-Line Interface (CLI) The CLI allows you to use text-based commands to configure the NWA1000 Series. You can access it using remote management (for example, SSH or Telnet). See the Command Reference Guide for more information. NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 31 Chapter 4 Standalone Mode File Transfer Protocol (FTP) This protocol can be used for firmware upgrades and configuration backup and restore. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) The NWA1000 Series can be monitored by an SNMP manager. See the SNMP chapter in this User’s Guide. 4.3 Good Habits for Managing the NWA1000 Series Do the following things regularly to make the NWA1000 Series more secure and to manage it more effectively. • Change the password often. Use a password that’s not easy to guess and that consists of different types of characters, such as numbers and letters. • Write down the password and put it in a safe place. • Back up the configuration (and make sure you know how to restore it). Restoring an earlier working configuration may be useful if the device becomes unstable or even crashes. If you forget your password, you will have to reset the NWA1000 Series to its factory default settings. If you backed up an earlier configuration file, you won’t have to totally re-configure the NWA1000 Series; you can simply restore your last configuration. 4.4 Starting and Stopping the NWA1000 Series Here are some of the ways to start and stop the NWA1000 Series. Always use Maintenance > Shutdown or the shutdown command before you turn off the NWA1000 Series or remove the power. Not doing so can cause the firmware to become corrupt. Table 10 Starting and Stopping the NWA1000 Series METHOD DESCRIPTION Turning on the power A cold start occurs when you turn on the power to the NWA1000 Series. The NWA1000 Series powers up, checks the hardware, and starts the system processes. Rebooting the NWA1000 Series NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 32 A warm start (without powering down and powering up again) occurs when you use the Reboot button in the Reboot screen or when you use the reboot command. The NWA1000 Series writes all cached data to the local storage, stops the system processes, and then does a warm start. Using the RESET button If you press the RESET button on the back of the NWA1000 Series, the NWA1000 Series sets the configuration to its default values and then reboots. See Section 27.6 on page 210 for more information. Chapter 4 Standalone Mode Table 10 Starting and Stopping the NWA1000 Series METHOD DESCRIPTION Clicking Maintenance Clicking Maintenance > Shutdown > Shutdown or using the shutdown command writes all > Shutdown > cached data to the local storage and stops the system processes. Wait for the device to Shutdown or using the shut down and then manually turn off or remove the power. It does not turn off the shutdown command power. Disconnecting the power NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 33 Power off occurs when you turn off the power to the NWA1000 Series. The NWA1000 Series simply turns off. It does not stop the system processes or write cached data to local storage. The NWA1000 Series does not stop or start the system processes when you apply configuration files or run shell scripts although you may temporarily lose access to network resources. CHAPTER 5 The Web Configurator 5.1 Overview The NWA1000 Series Web Configurator allows easy management using an Internet browser.

CHAPTER 9 Network 9.1 Overview This chapter describes how you can configure the management IP address and VLAN settings of your NWA1000 Series. The Internet Protocol (IP) address identifies a device on a network. Every networking device (including computers, servers, routers, printers, etc.) needs an IP address to communicate across the network. These networking devices are also known as hosts. Figure 41 IP Setup The figure above illustrates one possible setup of your NWA1000 Series. The gateway IP address is 192.168.1.1 and the managed IP address of the NWA1000 Series is 192.168.1.2 (default), but if the NWA1000 Series is assigned an IP address by a DHCP server, the default (192.168.1.2) will not be used. The gateway and the NWA1000 Series must belong in the same IP subnet to be able to communicate with each other. 9.1.1 What You Can Do in this Chapter • The IP Setting screen (Section 9.2 on page 72) configures the NWA1000 Series’s LAN IP address. • The VLAN screen (Section 9.3 on page 74) configures the NWA1000 Series’s VLAN settings. • The NCC Discovery screen (Section 9.4 on page 77) configures the NWA1000 Series’s Nebula Control Center (NCC) discovery settings. 9.2 IP Setting Use this screen to configure the IP address for your NWA1000 Series. To access this screen, click Configuration > Network > IP Setting. NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 72 Chapter 9 Network Figure 42 Configuration > Network > IP Setting Each field is described in the following table. Table 30 Configuration > Network > IP Setting LABEL DESCRIPTION IP Address Assignment Get Select this to make the interface a DHCP client and automatically get the IP address, Automatically subnet mask, and gateway address from a DHCP server. Use Fixed IP Select this if you want to specify the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway manually. Address IP Address Enter the IP address for this interface. Subnet Mask Enter the subnet mask of this interface in dot decimal notation. The subnet mask indicates what part of the IP address is the same for all computers in the network. Gateway Enter the IP address of the gateway. The NWA1000 Series sends packets to the gateway when it does not know how to route the packet to its destination. The gateway should be on the same network as the interface. DNS Server IP Address NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 73 Enter the IP address of the DNS server. IPv6 Address Assignment Enable Stateless Address Auto- configuration (SLAAC) Select this to enable IPv6 stateless auto-configuration on the NWA1000 Series. The NWA1000 Series will generate an IPv6 address itself from a prefix obtained from an IPv6 router in the network. Table 30 Configuration > Network > IP Setting (continued) LABEL DESCRIPTION Link-Local Address This displays the IPv6 link-local address and the network prefix that the NWA1000 Series generates itself for the LAN interface. IPv6 Address/ Prefix Length Enter the IPv6 address and the prefix length for the LAN interface if you want to use a static IP address. This field is optional. The prefix length indicates what the left-most part of the IP address is the same for all computers in the network, that is, the network address. Gateway Enter the IPv6 address of the default outgoing gateway using colon (:) hexadecimal notation. Metric Enter the priority of the gateway (if any) on the LAN interface. The NWA1000 Series decides which gateway to use based on this priority. The lower the number, the higher the priority. If two or more gateways have the same priority, the NWA1000 Series uses the one that was configured first. Enter zero to set the metric to 1024 for IPv6. DHCPv6 Client Select this option to set the NWA1000 Series to act as a DHCPv6 client. DUID This field displays the DHCP Unique IDentifier (DUID) of the NWA1000 Series, which is unique and used for identification purposes when the NWA1000 Series is exchanging DHCPv6 messages with others. See Appendix B on page 235 for more information. Request Address Select this option to get an IPv6 address from the DHCPv6 server. DHCPv6 Request Options Select this option to determine what additional information to get from the DHCPv6 server. DNS Server Select this option to obtain the IP address of the DNS server.

Reset Click Reset to return the screen to its last-saved settings. 9.3 VLAN This section discusses how to configure the NWA1000 Series’s VLAN settings. Figure 43 Management VLAN Setup In the figure above, to access and manage the NWA1000 Series from computer A, the NWA1000 Series and switch B’s ports to which computer A and the NWA1000 Series are connected should be in the same VLAN. Chapter 9 Network NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 74 A Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) allows a physical network to be partitioned into multiple logical networks. Devices on a logical network belong to one group. A device can belong to more than one group. With VLAN, a device cannot directly talk to or hear from devices that are not in the same group(s); the traffic must first go through a router. VLAN also increases network performance by limiting broadcasts to a smaller and more manageable logical broadcast domain. In traditional switched environments, all broadcast packets go to each and every individual port. With VLAN, all broadcasts are confined to a specific broadcast domain. IEEE 802.1Q Tag The IEEE 802.1Q standard defines an explicit VLAN tag in the MAC header to identify the VLAN membership of a frame across bridges. A VLAN tag includes the 12-bit VLAN ID and 3-bit user priority. The VLAN ID associates a frame with a specific VLAN and provides the information that devices need to process the frame across the network. Use this screen to configure the VLAN settings for your NWA1000 Series. To access this screen, click Configuration > Network > VLAN. The screen varies depending on whether the NWA1000 Series has an extra Ethernet port (except the uplink port).

Chapter 9 Network NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 77 CHAPTER 10 Wireless 10.1 Overview This chapter discusses how to configure the wireless network settings in your NWA1000 Series. The following figure provides an example of a wireless network. Figure 47 Example of a Wireless Network The wireless network is the part in the blue circle. In this wireless network, devices A and B are called wireless clients. The wireless clients use the access point (AP) to interact with other devices (such as the printer) or with the Internet. Your NWA1000 Series is the AP. 10.1.1 What You Can Do in this Chapter • The AP Management screen (Section 10.2 on page 79) manages the NWA1000 Series’s general wireless settings. • The Rogue AP screen (Section 10.3 on page 82) allows you to assign APs either to the rogue AP list or the friendly AP list. • The Load Balancing screen (Section 10.4 on page 85) configures network traffic load balancing between the APs and the NWA1000 Series. • The DCS screen (Section 10.5 on page 87) configures dynamic radio channel selection. NWA1000 Series User’s Guide 78 Chapter 10 Wireless 10.1.2 What You Need to Know The following terms and concepts may help as you read this chapter. Station / Wireless Client A station or wireless client is any wireless-capable device that can connect to an AP using a wireless signal. Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS) Dynamic Channel Selection (DCS) is a feature that allows an AP to automatically select the radio channel upon which it broadcasts by scanning the area around it and determining what channels are currently being used by other devices. Load Balancing (Wireless) Wireless load balancing is the process where you limit the number of connections allowed on an wireless access point (AP) or you limit the amount of wireless traffic transmitted and received on it so the AP does not become overloaded. 10.2 AP Management Use this screen to manage the NWA1000 Series’s general wireless settings.
