Introduction 1.1 Overview This User’s Guide covers the models listed in the following table. They can be managed in one of the following methods: remote management through Nebula Control Center (NCC) or an AP Controller (AC) such as the NXC, or local management in Standalone Mode. Each Zyxel Device runs in standalone mode by default, but it is recommended to use NCC management if it is available for your device.

NCC, AC or Standalone (NebulaFlex PRO) NCC or Standalone (NebulaFlex) AC or Standalone AC or Standalone

For more information about Access Point (AP) management, see Section 2.1 on page 24. Use the Zyxel Device to set up a wireless network with other IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax compatible devices in either 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks or both at the same time. When two or more APs are interconnected, this network is called a Wireless Distribution System (WDS). See Section 1.2.2 on page 14 for more information on root and repeater APs and how to set them up. 1.2 Zyxel Device Roles This section describes some of the different roles that your Zyxel Device can take up within a network. Not all roles are supported by all models (see Section 1.4 on page 19). The Zyxel Device can serve as a: • Access Point (AP) - This is used to allow wireless clients to connect to the Internet. • Radio Frequency (RF) monitor - An RF monitor searches for rogue APs to help eliminate network threats if it supports monitor mode and rogue APs detection/containment. An RF monitor cannot simultaneously act as an AP. • NWA5123-AC HD • NWA1123-ACv2 • NWA5123-AC • WAC6103D-I • NWA1123-AC PRO • WAC5302D-S • WAC6303D-S • NWA1123-AC HD • WAC6502D-E • NWA1302-AC • WAC6502D-S • NWA110AX • WAC6503D-S • NWA210AX • WAC6552D-S • WAC6553D-E • WAX510D • WAX610D • WAX650S NWA/WAC/WAX Series User’s Guide 13 • Root AP - A root AP connects to the gateway or switch through a wired Ethernet connection and has wireless repeaters connected to it to extend its range. • Wireless repeater - A wireless repeater wirelessly connects to a root AP and extends the network’s wireless range. The following figure shows a network setup that uses these different roles to create a secure Wireless Distribution System (WDS). The root AP (Y) is connected to a network with Internet access and has a wireless repeater (X) connected to it to expand the wireless network’s range. Clients (A, B, and C) can access the wired network through the wireless repeater and/or root AP. If a client (D) tries to set up his own AP (R) with weak security settings, the network becomes exposed to threats. The RF monitor (M) scans the area to detect all APs, which can help the network administrator discover these rogue APs and remove them or use the NXC to quarantine them. Figure 1 Sample Network Setup 1.2.1 Root AP 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 Zyxel Device in Root AP mode. A repeater must use the repeater SSID to connect to the Zyxel Device in Root AP mode. When the Zyxel Device is in Root AP mode, repeater security between the Zyxel Device and other repeaters 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 106 and Section 15.2 on page 165 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 Zyxel Device only. 1.2.2 Wireless Repeater Using Repeater mode, your Zyxel Device can extend the range of the WLAN. In the figure below, the Zyxel Device in Repeater mode (Z) has a wireless connection to the Zyxel Device in Root AP mode (X) Chapter 1 Introduction NWA/WAC/WAX Series User’s Guide 14 which is connected to a wired network and also has a wireless connection to another Zyxel Device 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 2 Repeater Application When the Zyxel Device is in Repeater mode, repeater security between the Zyxel Device 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 106 and Section 15.2 on page 165 for more details. For NCC managed devices, you only need to enable AP Smart Mesh to automatically create wireless links between APs. See the NCC User’s Guide for more details. To set up a WDS in standalone mode APs, do the following steps. You should already have the root AP set up (see the Quick Start Guide for hardware connections). 1 Go to Configuration > Object > WDS Profile in your root AP Web Configurator and click Add. 2 Enter a profile name, an SSID for the WDS, and a pre-shared key. 3 Do steps 1 and 2 for the wireless repeater using the same SSID and pre-shared key. 4 Once the security settings of peer sides match one another, the connection between the root and repeater Zyxel Devices is made. To set up a WDS in NXC managed Zyxel Devices, see the NXC User’s Guide. 1.2.3 Radio Frequency (RF) Monitor The Zyxel Device can be set to work as an RF monitor to discover nearby Access Points. The information Chapter 1 Introduction NWA/WAC/WAX Series User’s Guide 15 Chapter 1 Introduction it obtains from other APs is used to tag possible rogue APs and quarantine them if the Zyxel Device is managed by the NXC (see Section 2.1.3 on page 26). If the Zyxel Device’s radio setting is set to MON Mode (RF Monitor mode), it will serve as a dedicated RF monitor and its AP clients are disconnected. The models that do not support MON Mode support Rogue AP Detection (see Section 10.3 on page 109). Rogue AP Detection allows the AP to scan all channels similar to MON Mode except that the Zyxel Device still works as an AP while it scans the environment for wireless signals. To see which Zyxel Devices support the RF Monitor feature, see Section 1.4 on page 19. The Zyxel Device in MON Mode scans a range of WiFi channels that you specify in a MON Profile, either in the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band. To scan both bands, you need to set both radio 1 and radio 2 in MON Mode. Once a rogue AP is detected, the network administrator can manually change the network settings to limit its access to the network using its MAC address or have the device physically removed. If the Zyxel Device is managed by an NXC, the network administrator can also use Rogue AP Containment through the NXC. MON Mode in Standalone Mode To use an RF monitor in standalone mode, do the following steps: 1 Create a MON Profile in Configuration > Object > MON Profile > Add. Specify a Channel dwell time to determine how long the RF monitor scans a specific channel before moving to the next one. 2 To scan all 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz channels, select auto in Scan Channel Mode. Make sure that the Activate check box is selected and click OK. 3 Go to the Configuration > Wireless > AP Management screen and set Radio 1 OP Mode (2.4 GHz) and/or Radio 2 OP Mode (5 GHz) to MON Mode. 4 Select the Radio 1(2) Profile that you created in the previous step. Make sure that the Radio 1(2) Activate check box is selected and click Apply. 5 Go to Monitor > Wireless > Detected Device to see a list of APs scanned by the RF monitor. 6 Select an AP or APs in the list and click Mark as Rogue AP or Mark as Friendly AP. MON Mode in NXC-Managed Zyxel Devices For NXC-managed Zyxel Devices, do the following steps in the NXC Web Configurator: 1 Create a MON Profile in CONFIGURATION > Object > MON Profile > Add. Specify a Channel dwell time to determine how long the RF monitor scans a specific channel before moving to the next one. 2 To scan all 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz channels, select auto in Scan Channel Mode. Make sure that the Activate check box is selected and click OK. 3 Go to the CONFIGURATION > Wireless > AP Management > Mgmt. AP List > Edit screen and/or set Radio 1 OP Mode (2.4 GHz) and Radio 2 OP Mode (5 GHz) to MON Mode. 4 Select the Radio 1(2) Profile that you created in the previous step. Select Override Group Radio Setting and click OK. 5 Go to MONITOR > Wireless > Detected Device to see a list of APs scanned by the RF monitor. NWA/WAC/WAX Series User’s Guide 16 Chapter 1 Introduction 6 Select an AP or APs in the list and click Mark as Rogue AP or Mark as Friendly AP. 7 To quarantine a rogue AP, go to CONFIGURATION > Wireless > Rogue AP, select the APs you want to quarantine, and click Containment. Make sure the Enable Rogue AP Containment check box is selected, and click Apply. 1.3 Sample Feature Applications This section describes some possible scenarios and topologies that you can set up using your Zyxel Device. 1.3.1 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 Zyxel Device 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. NWA/WAC/WAX Series User’s Guide 17 Figure 3 Multiple BSSs 1.3.2 Dual-Radio Some of the Zyxel Device 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.

NWA/WAC/WAX Series User’s Guide 23 CHAPTER 2 AP Management 2.1 Management Mode The Zyxel Device is a unified AP and can be managed by the NCC or an AP controller (AC), or work as a standalone device. We recommend you use NCC to manage multiple APs (see the NCC User’s Guide). An AP Controller such as the NXC can only manage multiple APs in the same location. Note: Not all models can be managed by NCC or an AC. See Section 1.4 on page 19 to check whether your product supports these. The following table shows the default IP addresses and firmware upload methods for different management modes. Table 4 Zyxel Device Management Mode Comparison MANAGEMENT MODE DEFAULT IP ADDRESS UPLOAD FIRMWARE VIA Nebula Control Center Dynamic NCC Portal AP Controller Dynamic AP Controller using CAPWAP

Standalone Dynamic or Static (192.168.1.2) Built-in Web Configurator

When the Zyxel Device is in standalone mode and connects to a DHCP server, it uses the IP address assigned by the DHCP server. Otherwise, the Zyxel Device uses the default static management IP address (192.168.1.2). You can use the NCC Discovery or AC Discovery screen to allow the Zyxel Device to be managed by the NCC or an AC, respectively. When the Zyxel Device is managed by the NCC or an AC, it acts as a DHCP client and obtains an IP address from the NCC/AC. It can be configured ONLY by the NCC/AC. To change the Zyxel Device back to standalone mode, use the Reset button to restore the default configuration. Alternatively, you need to check the NCC/AC for the Zyxel Device’s IP address and use FTP to upload the default configuration file at conf/system-default.conf to the Zyxel Device and reboot the device. 2.1.1 Standalone When working in standalone mode, the Zyxel Device is configured mainly with its built-in Web Configurator. You can only connect to and set up one Zyxel Device at a time in this mode. See Chapter 5 on page 65 for detailed information about the standalone Web Configurator screens. 2.1.2 Nebula Control Center In this mode, which is also called cloud mode, you can manage and monitor the Zyxel Device through the Zyxel Nebula cloud-based network management system. This means you can manage devices remotely without the need of connecting to each device directly. It offers many features to better manage and monitor not just the Zyxel Device, but your network as a whole, including supported NWA/WAC/WAX Series User’s Guide 24 switches and gateways. Your network can also be managed through your smartphone using the Nebula Mobile app. See Section 25.1 on page 239 for an example NCC managed network topology. NCC allows different levels of management. You can configure each device on its own or configure a set of devices together as a site. You can also monitor groups of sites called organizations, as shown below. Table 5 NCC Management LevelsOrganization Site A Site B Device A-1 Device A-2 Device B-1 Device B-2 It graphically presents your device/network statistics and shows an overview of your network topology, as shown in the following figure. It also sends reports, alerts, and notifications for events, such as when a site goes offline. Figure 5 Traffic Monitoring Graph From NCC Chapter 2 AP Management NWA/WAC/WAX Series User’s Guide 25 Chapter 2 AP Management See the NCC (Nebula Control Center) User’s Guide for how to configure Nebula managed devices. See Chapter 26 on page 242 if you want to change the Zyxel Device’s VLAN setting or manually set its IP address. Note: Make sure your network firewall allows TCP ports 443, 4335, and 6667 as well as UDP port 123 so the device can connect to and sync with the NCC. 2.1.3 AP Controller (AC) If the Zyxel Device supports management using an AC (see Section 9.1.1 on page 94) such as the NXC2500 or NXC5500, and you have this AC in the same subnet, it will be managed by the controller automatically. To set the Zyxel Device to be managed by an AC in a different subnet or change between management modes, use the AC Discovery screen (see Section 9.5 on page 102 and Section 9.1.1 on page 94). You can use the AC to manage multiple Zyxel Devices. See Section 9.1.1 on page 94 for an example AC managed network topology. Note: If the Zyxel Device is already registered to NCC, the controller will be unable to manage it. An AC uses Control And Provisioning of Wireless Access Points (CAPWAP, see RFC 5415) to discover and configure multiple managed APs. 2.2 Switching Management Modes The Zyxel Device is in standalone mode by default, with NCC and/or AC discovery enabled. Standalone-to-NCC Register the Zyxel Device at the NCC website and then turn on the Zyxel Device. Make sure that NCC Discovery is enabled (see Section 9.6 on page 103). The NCC manages the Zyxel Device automatically when it is discovered. Standalone-to-AC (NXC) By default, the Zyxel Device must be in the same subnet as the NXC. See Section 9.1.1 on page 94 for setting it up in a different subnet. Make sure AC Discovery is enabled (see Section 9.5 on page 102). The NXC manages the Zyxel Device automatically when it is discovered. NXC-to-NCC Register the Zyxel Device at the NCC website. Make sure that NCC Discovery is enabled on your Zyxel Device (see Section 9.6 on page 103). In the NXC Web Configurator, select the Zyxel Device and press the Nebula button. The NCC manages the Zyxel Device automatically when it is discovered. NCC-to-NXC Unregister the Zyxel Device at the NCC portal. By default, the Zyxel Device must be in the same subnet as the NXC. See Section 9.1.1 on page 94 for setting it up in a different subnet. Make sure AC Discovery is enabled (see Section 9.5 on page 102). The NXC manages the Zyxel Device automatically when it is NWA/WAC/WAX Series User’s Guide 26 Chapter 2 AP Management discovered. NCC-to-Standalone Unregister the Zyxel Device from the NCC organization/site. Reset the Zyxel Device to factory defaults (see Section 28.6 on page 258). AC-to-Standalone Use the Reset button to return the Zyxel Device to its factory default settings (see Section 28.6 on page 258). 2.3 Zyxel One Network (ZON) Utility ZON Utility is a program designed to help you deploy and manage a network more efficiently. It detects devices automatically and allows you to do basic settings on devices in the network without having to be near it. The ZON Utility issues requests via Zyxel Discovery Protocol (ZDP) and in response to the query, the device responds back with basic information including IP address, firmware version, location, system and model name in the same broadcast domain. The information is then displayed in the ZON Utility screen and you can perform tasks like basic configuration of the devices and batch firmware upgrade in it.

Web Configurator The Web Configurator allows easy Zyxel Device setup and management using an Internet browser. If your Zyxel Device is managed by the NCC or an AC, use this only for troubleshooting if you cannot connect to the Internet. This User’s Guide provides information about the Web Configurator. Chapter 2 AP Management NCC This is the primary means by which you manage the Zyxel Device in cloud (NCC) mode. With the NCC, you can remotely manage and monitor the Zyxel Device through a cloud-based network management system. See the NCC User’s Guide for more information. ZON Utility Zyxel One Network (ZON) Utility is a utility tool that assists you to set up and maintain network devices in a simple and efficient way. You can download the ZON Utility at zyxel.com and install it on your computer (Windows operating system). For more information on ZON Utility see Section 2.3 on page 27. Command-Line Interface (CLI) The CLI allows you to use text-based commands to configure the Zyxel Device. You can access it using remote management (for example, SSH or Telnet) or via the console port. See the Command Reference Guide for more information. File Transfer Protocol (FTP) This protocol can be used for firmware upgrades and configuration backup and restore. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) The Zyxel Device can be monitored by an SNMP manager. See the SNMP chapter in this User’s Guide. 2.5 Good Habits for Managing the Zyxel Device Do the following things regularly to make the Zyxel Device 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 Zyxel Device becomes unstable or even crashes. If you forget your password, you will have to reset the Zyxel Device to its factory default settings. If you backed up an earlier configuration file, you will not have to totally re-configure the Zyxel Device; you can simply restore your last configuration. NWA/WAC/WAX Series User’s Guide 32 CHAPTER 3 Hardware See the Quick Start Guide for hardware installation and connections. 3.1 Grounding (WAC6552D-S and WAC6553D-E) Earth grounding helps protect against lightning and interference. Note: The power installation must be performed by qualified service personnel and should conform to the National Electrical Code. The Zyxel Device must be connected to earth ground to adequately ground the Zyxel Device and protect the operator from electrical hazards. Qualified service personnel must confirm that the protective earthing terminal of the building is a valid terminal. Before connecting the ground, ensure that a qualified service personnel has attached an appropriate ground lug to the ground cable. 1 Remove one of the ground screws from the Zyxel Device’s rear panel. 2 Secure a green/yellow ground cable (18 AWG or smaller) to the Zyxel Device’s rear panel using the ground screw. 3 Attach the other end of the cable to the ground, either to the same ground electrode as the pole you installed the Zyxel Device on or to the main grounding electrode of the building. Note: Follow your country's regulations and safety instructions to electrically ground the Zyxel Device properly. If you are uncertain that suitable grounding is available, contact the appropriate electrical inspection authority or an electrician. Warning! Connect the ground cable before you connect any other cables or wiring. The figure below illustrates how the ground cable (A) is attached to the Zyxel Device and goes to the earth ground (B). NWA/WAC/WAX Series User’s Guide 33 Figure 12 Grounding Example 3.2 Zyxel Device Models With Single LEDs The LEDs of some Zyxel Device models can be controlled by using the suppression feature such that the LEDs stay lit (ON) or OFF after the Zyxel Device is ready.
