The Back Panel
The Bridge's ports, where all cables are connected, are located on the back panel.
Figure 2-1: Back Panel Audio Out L/R The Audio Out (Left and Right) ports connect to the Audio In (Left and Right) ports of your audio receiver. The Line Out port is where you can connect headphones or portable audio speakers with a headphone jack. The Coaxial Out (Digital Audio) port is where you connect the cable coming from your audio receiver. The Optical Out (Digital Audio) port is where you connect the cable from the Optical In port of your audio receiver. This Ethernet port connects to Ethernet network devices, such as a switch or router, if using a wired connection. There are two ways to Reset the Bridge's factory defaults. Either press the Reset Button, for approximately ten seconds, or restore the defaults from the Password tab in the Bridge's WebBased Utility. The Power port is where you will connect the power adapter.
Important: Resetting the Music Bridge will erase all of your settings and replace them with the factory defaults. Do not reset the Bridge if you want to retain these settings.

Chapter 5: Using the Wireless-G Music Bridge Utility Equalizer Tab
Linksys recommends using the Setup CD-ROM for first-time installation of the Music Bridge. If you do not wish to run the Setup Wizard on the Setup CD-ROM, then you can use the Web-based Utility to configure the Music Bridge For advanced users, you may configure the Music Bridges advanced settings through the Web-based Utility. Before you can access the Web Utility, you may need to set up a static IP address on your PC. Refer to Windows Help for more information to configure TCP/IP for static addressing. Make sure that after you finish with the Web Utility, that you switch back to the original network setting so your PC will work correctly with your network. We recommend that you use the following numbering scheme for an IP address: 192.168.1.X In this example, X is a unique, arbitrarily assigned number from 1 to 254. Do not use 210, because it is already assigned to the Bridge. You could use one of these examples: 192.168.1.17 192.168.1.44 In this case, 17 and 44 are arbitrary numbers between 1 and 254. Your computer will also require a subnet mask. Use this number: 255.255.255.0. The Default Gateway field should be left blank. This chapter will describe each web page in the Utility and each pages key functions. The utility can be accessed via your web browser through use of a computer connected to the Music Bridge. To access the Web-based Utility, launch Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator, and enter the Music Bridges default IP address, 192.168.1.210, in the Address field. Then press Enter. A password request page will appear. (Non-Windows XP users will see a similar screen.) The first time you open the Web-based Utility, use the default password admin. (You can set a new password from the Password tab.) Then click the OK button. Figure 6-1: Password NOTE: The Wireless-G Music Bridge Utility should only be accessed AFTER connecting the Bridge. For more information on Setting Up and Connecting the Bridge, refer to Chapter 3: Setting Up and Connecting the Bridge.

This screen is used to configure the advanced settings and should only be used by advanced users. Transmission Rate. The rate of data transmission should be set depending on the speed of your wireless network. You can select from a range of transmission speeds, or you can select Auto to have the Bridge automatically use the fastest possible data rate and enable the Auto-Fallback feature. Auto-Fallback will negotiate the best possible connection speed between the Bridge and a wireless client. The default value is Auto. Fragmentation Threshold. This value specifies the maximum size for a packet before data is fragmented into multiple packets. If you experience a high packet error rate, you may slightly increase the Fragmentation Threshold. Setting the Fragmentation Threshold too low may result in poor network performance. Only minor reduction of the default value is recommended. In most cases, it should remain at its default value of 2346. RTS Threshold. Should you encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor reduction of the default value, 2347, is recommended. If a network packet is smaller than the preset RTS threshold size, the RTS/CTS mechanism will

not be enabled. The Bridge sends Request to Send (RTS) frames to a particular receiving station and negotiates the sending of a data frame. After receiving an RTS, the wireless station responds with a Clear to Send (CTS) frame to acknowledge the right to begin transmission. The RTS Threshold value should remain at its default value of 2347. Change these settings as described here and click the Apply button to apply your changes or Cancel to cancel your changes.

Appendix B: Wireless Security Security Threats Facing Wireless Networks
WPA Pre-Shared Key. If you do not have a RADIUS server, select the type of algorithm, TKIP or AES, enter a password in the Pre-Shared key field of 8-64 characters, and enter a Group Key Renewal period time between 0 and 99,999 seconds, which instructs the Router or other device how often it should change the encryption keys. WPA RADIUS. WPA used in coordination with a RADIUS server. (This should only be used when a RADIUS server is connected to the Router or other device.) First, select the type of WPA algorithm, TKIP or AES. Enter the RADIUS servers IP Address and port number, along with a key shared between the device and the server. Last, enter a Group Key Renewal period, which instructs the device how often it should change the encryption keys. RADIUS. WEP used in coordination with a RADIUS server. (This should only be used when a RADIUS server is connected to the Router or other device.) First, enter the RADIUS servers IP Address and port number, along with a key shared between the device and the server. Then, select a WEP key and a level of WEP encryption, and either generate a WEP key through the Passphrase or enter the WEP key manually. Implementing encryption may have a negative impact on your networks performance, but if you are transmitting sensitive data over your network, encryption should be used. These security recommendations should help keep your mind at ease while you are enjoying the most flexible and convenient technology Linksys has to offer.
