General Settings


Regulatory Domain – Please select regulatory domain that is most appropriate to your location.

Supported Regulatory Domains and allowed frequency ranges are defined as follows:
Europe – 5500 – 5700 MHz with DFS
UK - OFCOM – 5735 – 5835 MHz with DFS
USA – 5745 - 5825 MHz
Far East & Africa – 4920 – 6100 MHz

Device Name - This is the system name for easy identification of the OSBRiDGE device.
ESSID - An ESSID is the unique name shared among all peers in your wireless network. The name must be identical for all devices and points attempting to connect to the same network. It shall be up to 32 characters length.
Preferred BSSID - BSSID corresponds to the MAC Address of the Access Point or Wireless Bridge you want to connect to. Using 00:00:00:00:00:00 as BSSID will make the device connect to any Access Point based on correct ESSID only.

WLAN Operational Mode - Wireless LAN Operational mode for the device. Available modes are:

  • Access Point - 802.11a/n Access Point mode.
  • AP Client – This mode allows connection to another OSBRiDGE Access Point device or 3rd party compatible Access Point and full Layer-2 MAC address passthrough in Bridge mode.
  • Polling Base - Base Station mode using OSBRiDGE proprietary TDMA polling protocol.
  • Polling Client - Client mode for another device using OSBRiDGE proprietary TDMA polling protocol. This mode allows connection to another device, utilizing proprietary Polling Wireless MAC Protocol, that has been specifically optimized for high performance outdoor networks.
  • PtP Bridge Master – This mode allows set up of a point to point connection with another OSBRiDGE device operating in Slave (or Client) mode.
  • PtP Bridge Slave – This mode allows set up of a point to point connection with another OSBRiDGE device operating in Master mode.
  • Infrastructure Client - This mode allows connection to any 3rd party 802.11a/n based Access Point. To achieve compatibility with all 802.11a/n Access Points the so-called MAC address NAT is being performed for all traffic going from devices connected to the ethernet interface, when traffic is passing through the OSBRiDGE 5Ni device.
  • Mikrotik WDS Client - This mode allows connection to Mikrotik based Access Point. No MAC address NAT is done so all MAC addresses are passed through.

To obtain connection with MT AP it is required to configure following settings:
Far East and Africa Domain (to be able to set static frequency)
ESSiD (a unique wireless network name)
BSSiD (MAC address od AP' wireless interface)
Frequency (the same that AP operates on)
Please note that frequency on OSBRiDGE is static so DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection) on MT may cause permament disconnection when AP changes frequency bacause of DFS scan.

Frequency – The frequency device uses when operating in Access Point, Polling Base or PtP Bridge Slave modes. In all other modes this device follows up after frequency used by other device it is connecting to.
Channel Width – The channel width device uses - depending on configured Regulatory Domain available values are 40 MHz, 20 MHz (default), 18 MHz, 16 MHz, 14 MHz, 12 MHz, 10 MHz or 5 MHz.
Noise Immunity - If enabled, helps operation even in extremely noisy environments. This option will slow down overall wireless performance, so it should be used only when it is necessary.
Scan Range - Configured frequency range that should be used when scanning for Access Points. Configuring smaller range than allowed by regulatory domain allows faster scanning and connection to the Access Point than when complete allowed range is used
Enable Stream 1 - Enable first MiMo data stream for both transmit and receive or either one. Enable Stream 2 - Enable second MiMo data stream for both transmit and receive or either one. Carrier Sense - This option allows to disable standard 802.11 CSMA/CA backoff mechanism. Disabling 802.11 CSMA improves performance when operating in area with noise generated by other (specificaly non 802.11 compliant) devices.

IP Operational Mode
Bridge - Bridge works at OSI model Layer 2. This means it does not know anything about protocols, but just forwards data depending on the destination address in the data packet. This address is not the IP address, but the MAC (Media Access Control) address that is unique to each network adapter card. With a Bridge, all your computers are in the same network subnet, so you don't have to worry about not being able to communicate between computers or share an Internet connection. The only data that is allowed to cross the bridge is data that is being sent to a valid address on the other side of the bridge.
Router - Router is an OSI model Layer 3 device, and forwards data depending on the network address, not the hardware (MAC) address. For TCP/IP networks this means the IP address of the network interface. Routers isolate each LAN into a separate subnet. Routers provide bandwidth control by keeping data out of subnets where it doesn't belong, however routes need to be set up before they can get going.
NAT Router – This mode is similar to the Router mode only that all traffic coming on wired interface and going out on wireless interface is masqueraded. Masquerade allows a set of machines to invisibly access the Internet via the gateway (OSBRiDGE in this case). To other machines on the Internet, all this outgoing traffic will appear to be from the OSBRiDGE device itself. In addition to the added functionality, IP Masquerade provides the foundation to create a fairly secure networking environment.

Enable PPPoE Relay - In IP Router/NAT Router mode enable PPPoE Relay so PPPoE packets coming from the LAN subnetwork will be relayed to the WLAN subnetwork and back, allowing PPPoE client operation behind a router/NAT-router.
PPPoE Authorization – Enable or disable built in PPPoE client:

  • In IP Bridge mode, if PPPoE is enabled, the device will authorize itself to the PPPoE concentrator and establish a PPP link to it. Ethernet traffic will be bridged as usual.
  • In IP Router/NAT Router mode, if PPPoE is enabled, the OSBRiDGE device will authorize itself to the PPPoE concentrator and establish a PPP link to it – over the wireless interface in the Access Point Client mode or over the wired interface in the Access Point mode, PPPoE link will be then used as a default gateway by this device. While operating in Router/Access Point Client all traffic originating from the wired LAN subnetwork will be forwarded over PPPoE link to the PPPoE concentrator.

PPPoE Username/Password – A PPPoE Username and Password that are required to create PPP link to the PPPoE concentrator.

Supported PPPoE authorization types are CHAP, PAP, MSCHAP and MPPE.

PPPoE AC - PPPoE Access Concentrator name, if required.
PPPoE Service Name - PPPoE Service Name, if required.

Bridge forwarding with PPPoE only - If enabled in IP Bridge mode, the packets will be forwarded through the OSBRiDGE device operating as client only if successful PPPoE session has been established by the device itself. PPPoE Dial on Demand - PPPoE session will be established automaticaly only if there is traffic going from the LAN interface. The connection will timeout after configured time or if time is configured to "0", then the connection will be terminated only by PPPoE concentrator.

PPTP Tunneling - Enable or disable built in PPTP client
Watchdog – If enabled then device will send 3 ICMP Echo Requests to the configured IP address, each in 1 minute interval. If there is no single ICMP Echo Reply to any of these requests, then the device will reboot itself.
The system also has an independent hardware watchdog built in, that checks for critical operational parameters and reboots the device, should the system freeze or become unstable. That watchdog works all the time, regardless of the ping watchdog configuration.
Run Web Server on Port – Enter the port the build-in Web server should be configured to run on.
Web Login Timeout – Enter the value the management Web session should be kept alive without any action from the user.
Reset to Default Password – Password that is used to reset device to factory default settings using OSReset software.
NTP Server – Configure IP address of the external NTP (Network Time Protocol) server OSBRiDGE running device will obtain current time from at startup time.
ETH Speed - LAN Port connection speed - available values are Auto (Auto Negotiation), 100Mbps FDX, 100Mbps HDX, 10Mbps FDX, 10Mbps HDX.
VTUN Client - Please enter IP address of the VTUN server to connect and create Layer-2 bridge.
Tunnel wireless traffic only - If enabled only traffic coming from and going to wireless interface will be forwarded over the VTUN tunnel. SNMP Server - System Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Server, if enabled then it is possible to read device stats using SNMPv2 protocol.

IP Settings


Bridge Mode

Device IP – Enter device IP address here.
Subnet Mask – Enter network subnet mask here.
Default Gateway – IP address of a router where traffic going outside of the local network will be forwarded.

Router Mode / NAT Router Mode

Wired Interface IP – Enter IP address of the wired interface here.
Wired Interface Mask – Enter wired network subnet mask here.
Wireless Interface IP – Enter IP address of the wireless interface here.
Wireless Interface Mask – Enter wireless network subnet mask here.
Default Gateway – IP address of a router where traffic not destined for defined routes / local routes will be forwarded.
Defined Routes – This table displays currently defined static routes. To delete a route select "Delete" checkbox and press Submit on the bottom of the page. Please note that it is not possible to delete first two entries – direct routes to local interfaces.

Add Route:
Direct – Wired/Wireless - When router has two or more IP subnets directly attached to its different interfaces, it can route IP packets between those subnets using a direct route. A direct route consists of an IP Address which specifies the basic IP address to route, a Subnet Mask which defines the class of IP addresses that will be routed, and an interface which specifies where the IP subnet is attached. When an IP packet addressed to a system on the directly routed subnet arrives at the router, the router will send it directly to the target machine on the interface specified. When entering direct route use 0.0.0.0 as Gateway.
Indirect - When router needs to send IP packets between IP subnets which are not directly connected to one of its interfaces, it must have an indirect route for sending those packets. An indirect route consists of an IP Address which specifies the basic IP address to route, a Subnet Mask which defines the class of IP addresses that will be routed and a Gateway that will relay the IP packet. When an IP packet addressed to a system on the indirectly routed subnet arrives at the router, the router will route it over to the specified Gatway to be routed further.

Advanced Settings


Fragmentation Threshold – Enter the size at which the packets will be fragmented.
RTS/CTS Threshold – Enter the minimum packet size to require RTS (Request To Send) handshaking limiting on-the air collisions. For packets smaller than this threshold, a RTS is not sent and the packet is transmitted directly to the WLAN. For packets larger than this threshold the RTS/CTS handshaking is established. This value should only be changed when operating as an Access Point Client.
Distance to the Peer – Configure distance between OSBRiDGE device and the Access Point (or other bridge when operating as PtP Bridge) it is connecting to. If this device is configured to operate as an Access Point then distance should be configured to the farthest client device connecting to it.
Xtrange Enabled - Feature allowing faster data transfers between supporting devices operating on large distances. TX Power - By default, the OSBRiDGE running device transmits data at the maximum output power for the regulatory domain selected and frequency used. With Transmit Power Control (TPC), you can adjust the output power of the unit to a lower level, in order to reduce interference to neighboring devices.

This page shows information about packets that traversed the bridge/router. In IP Bridge mode there is also Bridge Learn Table shown, in IP Router mode there is device ARP table shown, containing it’s neighbours MAC addresses. Currently active DHCP leases are also displayed here.

Services


Site Survey – Allows to see other Access Points in range.
Reset Default – Allows to reset device to factory default settings.
Traceroute – This command is used to determine the route taken by packets across an IP network.
Ping – This command is used to to test whether a particular host is reachable across an IP network. Ping works by sending ICMP “echo request” packets to the target host and listening for ICMP “echo response” replies. Using interval timing and response rate, ping estimates the round-trip time and packet loss rate between hosts.
Speed Test - This tool downloads a file to this device and provides information on the speed it was possible to obtain downloading the file.

Firmware Upgrade


This page allows you to upgrade the device firmware.

Load Configuration


This page allows you to load device configuration from file saved on local disk.

Save Configuration


This page allows you to save device configuration to file on local disk.

Resetting device to default settings.

In order to reset OSBRiDGE device to factory default settings you need to use OSReset software available for download at http://www.osbridge.com/?q=en/software

OSReset will locate any compatible OSBRiDGE device regardless of its IP address located on the same physical subnetwork with the computer it is running on.

After selecting the device you want to reset enter "Reset to Default Password" in the Password: field and press button.

If you have changed Reset to Default Password to one you no longer remember then please email us at support@osbridge.com stating device type and MAC Address and we will provide you one time, generated password that will let you reset the device to factory default settings.

Restore firmware after upgrade failure.

Should your device fail during firmware upgrade process there's a way to restore firmware image using built in bootloader:

- Configure ip address of your computer (linux based preferably) to 192.168.1.23 netmask 255.255.255.0

- on the console shell please type:

telnet -r 192.168.1.7 9000

but don't press enter just yet.

- power on the OSBRiDGE 5Ni device - as soon as the ethernet LED stops to blink press enter on the shell console to execute the 'telnet' command (please note that we only have eight seconds to connect) - the following should appear:

[root@root]# telnet -r 192.168.1.7 9000
Trying 192.168.1.7...
Connected to 192.168.1.7 (192.168.1.7).
Escape character is '^]'.
== Executing boot script in 6.670 seconds - enter ^C to abort
^C
OSBRiDGE>

After connecting please press CTRL+C immediately. Important: the telnet client must be run in so called character mode (hence the -r switch) so it sends each character separately. Alternatively you can use rlogin application.

Now, in the bootloader, please enter:

fis erase -f 0xBF070000 -l 0x00000010

And you should see:

OSBRiDGE> fis erase -f 0xBF070000 -l 0x00000010
... Erase from 0xBF070000-0xBF070010: ..
OSBRiDGE>

Now, proceed to stage two, firmware reloading:

  • You need to obtain tftp server software, the free one for Windows is available at http://tftpd32.jounin.net/
  • Install tftpd32.exe into the catalog where firmware files are located
  • Rename the OSBRiDGE 5Ni firmware file into zImage
  • Change your computer IP address to 192.168.1.23 netmask 255.255.255.0
  • Connect the device to the computer via cross-over cable or via network switch
  • Turn on the device, it should initiate the TFTP transfer automaticaly, automaticaly reflash and reboot itself with all new default configuration settings.
