This guide is written as a reference for setting up a WAB-3000 mesh network by 

using the following equipments and network topology as shown in figure 1.    Only 

parts of WAB-3000 feature will be discussed here.    For other unmentioned functions, 

please refer to WAB-3000 user manual for details.

1)

 

Make sure a router has access to Internet and it is offering DHCP service.    In this 

case, LevelOne WBR-3406 router is used and it is giving out IP addresses on 

192.168.123.x subnet. 

 

2)

 

Connect all three WAB-3000s to an administrator PC for configuration.    For 

more detail, please refer to user manual. 

 

3)

 

Open up WAB-3000 web UI, go to System Configuration/Operating Mode 

configuration page, and make sure “Wireless Access Point/Bridging Mode” is 

selected.    This operating mode can be different depending upon user’s need.

4)

 

Go to System Configuration/WAN configuration page and select to receive an IP 

from a DHCP server.

5)

 

Go to System Configuration/LAN configuration page and assign a different IP to 

each WAB-3000 for administration purpose.     

 

 

In this example: 

WAB-3000-A is assigned to 192.168.15.11 

WAB-3000-B is assigned to 192.168.15.12 

WAB-3000-C is assigned to 192.168.15.13

For the purpose of verifying the success of WAB-3000 mesh network later, 

wireless access point of WAB-3000-C is enabled.

Go to Wireless Bridge/General configuration page.    Tow bridging modes are 

available: “Manual Bridging” and “Auto Bridging.”    For “Auto Bridging” mode, 

WAB-3000s would communicate with each other through SSID and establish 

bridging automatically.    In this guide, “Manual Bridging” mode is selected to 

show details of setting up a WAB-3000 mesh network.

Go to Wireless Bridge/Radio configuration page and adjust the parameters to that 

best suit user’s network.    Afterwards, click on apply to activate new settings.     

 

10)

 

At the bottom of the configuration page, insert MAC addresses of remote 

WAB-3000 adding them to the mesh network.    Therefore, in WAB-3000-C, 

MAC address of WAB-3000-A and WAB-3000-B are added here.    Repeat the 

same process on WAB-3000-A and WAB-3000-B.

Once above steps are done on all three WAB-3000, bridge network would be 

established.  Bridge information is available on Monitoring/Reports/Bridging 

Status configuration page.

13)

 

Use a wireless card to connect PC to WAB-3000-C via its SSID.    Once 

connected, an IP on 192.168.123.x subnet will be given and Internet can be 

accessed.
