Step 2: Log in to the multi-function device and configure the wireless network

a. Open a web browser. In the address line type

b. In the main menu, click on the Wireless option.

c. In the Basic Wireless Settings window, the Network Mode shows mixed by default

d. Delete the default SSID (linksys) in the Network Name (SSID) textbox

e. Write down the exact SSID name that you are using. Network Name : teknik.

f. Click on the Radio Band drop-down menu and write down the two options. Auto and Manual

g. For a wireless network that can use 802.11b, g, or n client devices, the default is Auto. Auto allows
the Wide Channel option to be chosen and gives the best performance. The Standard Channel
option is used if the wireless client devices are 802.11b or g, or both b and g. The Wide Channel
option is used if only 802.11n client devices are being used. Leave the default of Auto selected.

h. SSID Broadcast is set to enabled by default, which enables the AP to periodically send out the SSID
using the wireless antenna. Any wireless devices in the area can detect this broadcast. This is how
clients detect nearby wireless networks.

i. Click on the Save Settings button. When the settings have been successfully saved, click on

j. The AP is now configured for a wireless network with the name (SSID) that you gave it. It is important
to write down this information before starting the next lab or attaching any wireless NICs to the
wireless network.

Step 3: Reflection

a. How many wireless networks do you think could be configured in one classroom? What would limit
this? satu buah access point dapat memungkinkan tersedianya 50 user.

b. What do you see as a potential security problem when you broadcast your SSID from the AP? jika settingan SSID pada access point disetting default maka akan memudahkan bagi attack wlan untuk menyerang system wireless yang digunakan untuk berbagai keperluan.

Lab 7.2.6 Configuring a Wireless Client

Step 1: Install the wireless NIC driver

a. Insert the CD that contains the wireless NIC driver into the CD/DVD drive and install the driver according to the manufacturer recommendations.

b. Who is the manufacturer of the wireless NIC? Linksys

c. Describe how you installed the wireless NIC driver. setelah dimasukkan CD driver product wireless dilakukan pengkonfigurasian pada alat access point dengan cara membuka browser dan masukan alamat bawaan product lalu akan muncul interface untuk pengaturan jaringan. Pengaturan yang dilakukan ialah mengubah nama default setting dan memberikan konfigurasi IP address perlu juga dilakukan pengkonfigurasian pada batasan minimum dan maksimum client.

Step 2: Install the wireless NIC

a. When prompted, connect the USB NIC cable to an available USB port. Click Next to continue.

Step 3: Attach to the wireless network

a. Most wireless NIC adapters have client software to control the NIC. The software shows any wireless networks that are discovered. Select the SSID of the wireless network that you configured on the AP in a previous lab.

b. Which SSID are you using?

c. If the wireless NIC did not connect to the wireless network, perform the appropriate troubleshooting.

d. What is the signal strength for the wireless NIC? elektronika1

e. Did the wireless NIC see any other wireless networks in the area? ya

f. Show your active wireless connection to a fellow student or the lab assistant.

g. What is another name for a wireless host? elektronika2 dan elo_1 test

h. Is it better to use the client software from the wireless NIC manufacturer or let Windows XP control the wireless NIC? lebih baik menggunakan client software

Step 4: Determine the NIC driver version

a. Hardware manufacturers continually update drivers. The driver that ships with a NIC or other piece of hardware is frequently not the most current.

b. To check the driver version for the NIC you installed, click Start, select Control Panel and then Network Connections. Right-click on the wireless connection and select Properties. Click the Configure button for the NIC and then the Driver tab. What is the name and version of the driver you installed? Realtek RTL8187B Wireless 802.11b/g 54 Mbps USB 2.0 network adapter.

Step 5: Determine if the NIC driver is the most current

a. Search the NIC manufacturer web site for drivers that support the wireless NIC you installed. Are there more current ones available? 1394 Net Adapter, Marvel Yukon 88E8040T PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller, Realtek RTL8187B Wireless 802.11b/g 54 Mbps USB 2.0 Network Adapter

b. What is the most current one listed? Realtek RTL8187B Wireless 802.11b/g 54 Mbps USB 2.0 Network Adapter

c. If there is a more current driver, how would you apply it? Jika pada computer cukup dengan menambahkan port NIC baru sehingga bisa menambahkan Driver lebih. Atau jika pada laptop cukup menambahkan slot PCI.

Step 6: Verify connectivity

a. Once you have installed the NIC, it is time to verify connectivity with the Linksys WRT300N.

b. Open a web browser such as Windows Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.

c. In the address line type, which is the default setting on the AP.

d. In the Connect to dialog box, leave the username text box empty, and type admin in the password text box. Leave the Remember my password checkbox unchecked. Click OK.

e. If you receive the Linksys Setup screen, you have established connectivity with the AP. If you do not establish connectivity, you will have to troubleshoot the connection by checking to ensure the devices are turned on and the IP addresses on all devices are correct. Which IP address should be configured on the wireless NIC? Jika terkendala dengan masalah koneksi maka yang harus diperhatikan ialah pengaturan pada SET UP dan di tetapkan kembali IP address dan menetukan batas maksimum dan minimum pada IP client.

Step 7: Reflection

a. Do you think the process of setting up a wireless network at a food store or book store is any different from what you just did? Karena perangkat yang digunakan untuk menginstall wireless masih sama dan proses penginstalan juga tidak terlalu berbeda. Dan karena wireless pada tempat makan atau took buku masih skop kecil sehingga pengaturan masih sama.

b. Do you think the AP model that you are using would be sufficient for the food store in your neighborhood? Why or why not? Bisa menggunakan PSK (pre-shared key) karena access point hanya bisa di berikan kepada pelanggan toko tersebut dengan memberikan kunci atau password hanya kepada pelanggan.


Lab 7.3.5 Configuring Wireless Security

Step 1: Plan the security for your home network

a. List at least six security best practices that you should implement to secure your multi-function device
and wireless network.

1) Kurangi kekuatan pancar antena WAP

2) Berikan security code

3) Aktifkan MAC address filter.

4) Ganti Password default

5) Disable Broadcast SSID

6) Disable DHCP Server


b. Describe what the security risk is for each item.

1) kelemahan atau resikonya misalnya disebuah tempat usaha atau perusahaan maka semakin jauh titik akses dari akses point mengakibatkan kecepatan akses sangat terpengaruh atau bahkan tidak menjanjikan sama sekali.

2) bagi orang yang tidak paham teknologi akan kebingungan dalam memberikan security code.

3) jika seandainya MAC address seseorang client pernah diblokir pada suatu tempat, akan tetapi belum dibuka kembali maka tidak bisa digunakan pada tempat akses lain.

4) jika password pada default diganti, akan susah mengetahui paswor yang baru jika tidak dikonfirmasikan terhadap teknisi.

5) jika tidak diaktifkan kembali, maka titik access tidak dapat diditeksi oleh wireless adapter.

6)jika di disabledkan maka hanya IP address yang telah diregisterkan yang bisa mengakses jaringan, sehingga jaringan tidak bersifat bebas layaknya wi-fi zone pada umumnya.
Step 2: Connect a computer to the multi-function device and log in to the web-based utility

a. Connect your computer (Ethernet NIC) to the multi-function device (port 1 on the Linksys WRT300N)
by using a straight-through cable.
b. The default IP address of the Linksys WRT300N is, and the default subnet mask is The computer and Linksys device must be on the same network to communicate with

d. The Web Utility Access via Wireless option is enabled by default. You may want to disable this
feature to further increase security.

e. Click the Save Settings button to save the information.
NOTE: If you forget your password, you can reset the Linksys device to the factory defaults by
pressing the RESET button for 5 seconds and then releasing it. The default password is admin.

Step 5: Configure the wireless security settings

a. Click the Wireless tab. The Basic Wireless Settings tab is selected by default. The Network Name
is the SSID shared among all devices on your network. It must be identical for all devices in the
wireless network. It is case-sensitive and must not be more than 32 characters.

b. Change the SSID from the default of linksys to a unique name. Record the name you have chosen: teknikinformatika

c. Leave the Radio Band set to Auto. This allows your network to use all 802.11n, g, and b devices.

d. For SSID Broadcast, select the Disabled button to disable the SSID broadcast. Wireless clients
survey the area for networks to associate with and will detect the SSID broadcast sent by the Linksys
device. For added security, do not broadcast the SSID.

e. Save your settings before going to the next screen.

Step 6: Configure encryption and authentication

a. Choose the Wireless Security tab on the Wireless screen.

b. This router supports four types of security mode settings:
• WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
• WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) Personal, which uses a pre-shared key (PSK)
• WPA Enterprise, which uses Remote Access Dial In User Service (RADIUS)

c. Select WPA Personal Security Mode.

d. On the next screen, choose an Encryption algorithm.
To secure a network, use the highest level of encryption possible within the Selected Security mode.
The following Security Modes and Encryption levels are listed from least secure (WEP) to most
secure (WPA2 with AES)
o TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol)
o AES (Advanced Encryption System)
• WPA2
AES is only supported by newer devices that contain a co-processor. To ensure compatibility with all
devices, select TKIP.

e. For authentication, enter a pre-shared key between 8 and 63 characters. This key is shared by the
Linksys device and all connected devices.

f. Choose a key renewal period between 600 and 7200 seconds. The renewal period is how often the
Linksys device changes the encryption key.

g. Save your settings before exiting the screen.

Step 7: Configure MAC address filtering

a. Choose the Wireless MAC Filter tab on the Wireless screen.

b. MAC address filtering allows only selected wireless client MAC addresses to have access to your
network. Select the radio button to Permit PCs listed below to access the wireless network. Click
the Wireless Client List button to display a list of all wireless client computers on your network.

c. The next screen allows you to identify which MAC addresses can have access to the wireless
network. Click the Save to MAC Address Filter List check box for any client device you want to add,
and then click the Add button. Any wireless clients, other than those in the list will be prevented from
accessing your wireless network. Save your settings before exiting the screen.

Step 8: Reflection

a. Which feature that you configured on the Linksys WRT300N makes you feel the most secure and
why?  aplikasi atau program yang membuat saya merasa lebih aman dan nyaman ketika mengkonfigurasi ialah MAC address filtering. Alasannya karena pada aplikasi ini terdapat sebuah pilihan untuk memberikan izin access kepada client yang telah terlebih dahulu alamat IP dan MAC address nya dicantumkan atau didaftarkan.

b. Make a list of other items that could be done to make your network even more secure.

Pada pengaturan wireless kita pilih wireless security dan security modenya kita ganti dari disabled menjadi WEP sehingga dapat memberikan kunci berlapis. Atau pada system operasi windows biasa kita aktifkn juga menu firewall dan kita aktifkan juga menu SYS.
