for network configurations that do not have a Wireless Router, and to
Infrastructure for configurations with a Wireless Router. (Infrastructure
is the default setting.)
Transmit Rate - Auto will automatically negotiate the highest possible
wireless network speed. Or set a lower speed manually. Lower speeds
will give better range.
Channel - The Channel can only be set when the Operating Mode is
set to Ad Hoc (Peer-to-Peer). If you are setting up an Ad Hoc wireless
network, set the channel number to the same radio channel as that used
by the other wireless devices in your group. However, if you are
connecting to a network via a Router, then the channel is automatically
set to the channel of the Router to which the adapter connects.
Power Save - Click the box if you want to use power management to
reduce your portable computer’s consumption of battery power and
still keep the computer available for immediate use.
Note
All computers and wireless network devices in the same network
should have the same Network Name (SSID) and the same encryption
key for wireless security. In Ad Hoc mode, you must also specify the
same radio channel for all wireless devices.
Sub-tab Security:
Select Profile - A profile is a set of all parameters needed for a
particular wireless connection. If you want to change between wireless
networks, you can simply switch from one saved profile to the other

Key Type - For more secure data transmissions, set encryption to the
highest number of bits. E.g. a 128-bit settings gives you a higher level of
security than 64-bit.
Note
The setting must be the same for all clients in your wireless network.
4.2.2 Link Information tab
Use Passphrase - If Passphrase is selected, security keys for WEP
encryption are generated from your passphrase string. If encryption is
set to 128 bit, only Key 1 is generated. If encryption is set to 64 bit,
Keys1-4 are generated. You must use the same Passphrase and Default
Key settings on all the other routers in your network.
Note
A passphrase string can consist of up to 32 alphanumeric characters.
The WPA/WPA2 (WiFi Protected Access) implemented in this
Wireless USB Adapter uses an alphanumeric password between 8 and
63 characters long. This password may include symbols and spaces.
Note
You must use the same encryption key throughout your network.
The Link information tab displays information on the wireless
network name (SSID) to which there is a wireless connection: the signal
strength, Troughput history, current connection speed, channel and

ONE-ON-ONE WIRELESS NETWORK

Network Terminology
In a network, the computers need to be able to connect to each other
physically. Therefore, another important network property is how the
computers connect to each other, either directly or through a central
device.
ONE-ON-ONE WIRED NETWORK
also known as: Direct connection (max. 2 PCs)
Also known as: Ad Hoc / Peer-to-Peer
WIRELESS NETWORK WITH MORE THAN 2 PCs
Note
Use a crossover Ethernet cable to connect two computers directly to
each other.
WIRED NETWORK WITH MORE THAN 2 PCs
Also known as: Ad Hoc / Peer-to-Peer
The wireless medium forms a hub in and of itself. No hardware hub is
needed.
CONNECTING WIRELESS TO WIRED NETWORKS
Use a hub or switch to connect more than 2 PCs to each other.
Note
Use straight-through Ethernet cables to connect the computers to the
central device (hub/switch).
HOW TO INTERCONNECT WIRED NETWORKS
Also known as: Infrastructure / Access Point
Use a Wireless Router
Central devices, like a hub, switch, router or wireless access point may
be stand-alone devices or built into a computer.
• A hub has multiple ports and serves as a central connection point for
communication lines from all computers on a wired network. It
copies all data arriving at one port to the other ports. A switch is
similar to a hub, but is able to handle different network speeds at each
port.
• Gateway routers and wireless access points route network
traffic from one network to another (e.g. from a wired network to
the Internet, or from a wireless network to a wired network or to
the Internet).
Use a gateway router to connect one network to another (e.g. to the
Internet, also known as WAN).

DNS Server Address
DNS stands for Domain Name System, which allows Internet host
computers to have a domain name and one or more IP addresses. A
DNS server keeps a database of host computers and their respective
domain names and IP addresses, so that when a domain name is
requested, the user is sent to the proper IP address. The DNS server
address used by the computers on your home network is the location
of the DNS server your ISP has assigned.
