Connecting to the WiMAX Network
All the necessary settings to connect to your Internet Service provider’s WiMAX network have
been pre-programmed into the USBw 200 and cannot be modified by the user.
With the Connection Manager operating, plug in the
USBw 200. The Connection manager will scan for
available WiMAX channels. When a suitable channel
is found, the Connection Manager will detect it, and
add it to the available connections list automatically. In
this example, the Connection Manager has been using
a WiFi service named M-Wireless, and has detected
the WiMAX service MOT Burnsville
To select the WiMAX connection, click on the Connect
button. The Connection Manager will go through a
secure authentication process, and connect to the
WiMAX service.
Here both the WiFi and WiMAX connections are
available to the user. It is possible to switch between
these two services by clicking the arrow on the Active
Connections bar.
