Embedded Controller

Our GWN series of Routers and APs includes controller software at no extra cost and it is simply built-in to the product’s web user interface. Our embedded controllers can auto discovery and auto-provision any in-network GWN series AP from the designated Provisioning Master (either an AP or the GWN7000), which also offers a centralized provisioning and management interface.

Here is a quick look at the easy 4 step process of setting up Wi-Fi networks with our built-in controllers:

1. Log in to the GWN router or APs web user interface.
2. The Setup Wizard will set up the device as the master and setup initial network settings
3. From the master’s web UI, go to the “Access Points” screen, to see all in-network GWN APs
4. Select the GWN APs you want to add to the network for automatic provisioning.

Security Features

Like any technology, Wi-Fi has its own share of security concerns. The nature of any wireless network allows anyone with malicious intent to locate themselves close to an access point in order to infiltrate a network. More than 80 percent of U.S. companies have been successfully hacked, according to a Duke University/CFO Magazine Global Business Outlook Survey. Being that a Wi-Fi attack can occur in only 2 seconds, we set out to create our GWN series of Wi-Fi Access Points to solve many traditional Wi-Fi security problems by building a variety of high-end security protections into the GWN series.

Captive_PortalCaptive Portal

Define a Portal Web Page that
will be displayed on Wi-Fi clients’
browsers when accessing the
Internet. Authetications include:
RADIUS, Social, Voucher, or the
option for No Authentication.

Unique_Security_CertificatesUnique Security Certificates

Unique security certificate built
into every GWN series Access
Point to encrypt data and traffic
going back and forth between
the AP, the controller and the
controller’s web user interface.

Random_Default_PasswordRandom Default Password

Added security through random
default passwords for every
GWN access point.

Anti_Hacking_SecurityAnti-Hacking Security/Critical Data and Secure Lockdown

Powerful firmware security antihacking protection will block
illegal changes to the firmware
as well as encrypt files to add
extra layers of security.


Strong Firewall including: Traffic Matching (MAC, IP, Port, Protocol) Action (SNAT, DNAT, Port Trigger, Route, Drop, Reject), DMZ Host, Forwarding Rules, Inter-VLAN Routing, and SYN Flood Protection.

VPNVirtual Private Network

Create secure networks through
VPN Server/Client: OpenVPN,
PPTP, L2TP/IPSec (client only),
and Site-to-Site VPN options.

Client_BridgeClient Bridge

Client bridge allows an access point to be configured as a client for bridging wired only clients wirelessly to the network. This allows the AP to share a Wi-Fi connection to the LAN ports transparently.

Client_ConnectionClient Connection Permissions

Enhanced Wi-Fi client blacklist
configuration empowers the
system administrator to set a
fixed time to allow connection
to the access point.
