YesTurnkey Qon™ QG-1000/QG-2000/QG-3000 Network Access Gateway
YesTurnkey's QG-1000/QG-2000/QG-3000 Network Access Gateway enables ISPs, enterprises, or
schools to deploy LAN/WLANs with user authentication support. Based on the Web Redirection
technology, when an unauthenticated user is trying to access a Web page, a logon
page is shown instead of the requested page, so that the user can type his/her user
name and password for authentication. Then, the user credential information is sent
to a back-end RADIUS (Remote Authentication User Dial-In Service) server to see
if the user is allowed to access the Internet.
User Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA)
- Web redirection. When an unauthenticated wireless user is trying to access
a Web page, he/she is redirected to a logon page for entering the user name and
password. Then, the user credential information is sent to a back-end RADIUS server
- Captive portal. The access gateway can be configured to use a captive portal
page on the Web server maintained by the WISP.
- CGI-Based Authentication. Username/password information can be sent by directly
calling a CGI (Common Gateway Interface) function on the access gateway. This feature
is useful for authentication automation achieved by a specifically designed program
running on the wireless client computer.
- Unrestricted clients. Client computers with specific IP addresses or MAC
addresses can bypass the Web redirection-based access control.
- Walled garden. Some specific URLs can be accessed without authentication.
These URLs can be exploited by WISPs for advertisement purposes.
- RADIUS client. The WLAN hotspot access gateway communicates with a back-end
RADIUS server for wireless user authentication, authorization, and accounting.
- Showing authenticated users. Showing the status and statistics of every RADIUS-authenticated
user. And an authenticated user can be terminated at any time for management purposes.
- Authentication session control. Several mechanisms are provided for the network
administrator to control user authentication session lifetimes.
Internet Connection Sharing
- DNS proxy. The WLAN hotspot access gateway can forward DNS (Domain Name System)
requests from client computers to DNS servers on the Internet. And DNS 3 responses
from the DNS servers can be forwarded back to the client computers.
- NAT server. Client computers can share a public IP address provided by an
ISP (Internet Service Provider) by NAT (Network Address Translation).
- DSL/Cable Modem Support. Supporting dynamic IP address assignment by PPPoE
(Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) or DHCP and static IP address assignment.
- Bandwidth control. Network bandwidth consumed by each client can be limited.
Clients are identified by MAC address range or IP address range.
- Web-based management. Configuring and monitoring the WLAN hotspot access
gateway via a Web browser. The management protocol is HTTP (HeperText Transfer Protocol)-based.
The access gateway can be configured to be managed by specific hosts from the WAN
- SNTP. Support for absolute system time by SNTP (Simple Network Time Protocol).
- Dynamic DNS. Support for dynamic DNS services provided by YesTurnkey DDNS
service, so that the access gateway can be associated with a domain name even if
it obtains an IP address dynamically by PPP, PPPoE or DHCP.
- Local log. System events are logged to the on-board RAM of the access gateway.
- Remote log by BSD syslog. Systems events are sent in the form of Syslog to
a remote SNMP management server.
- Periodical restart every day. The access gateway can be configured to restart
at a specific time every day. This mechanism is aimed at solving lockup caused by
firmware bugs that surface only after the access gateway has operated for a long
- Ethernet: IEEE802.3u 10/100BaseTX
- WAN: RJ-45 x 1 (10/100BaseTX)
- LAN: RJ-45 x 3 (10/100BaseTX)
- Power, HDD, Bypass, Ethernet active & speed
