A6 Check the network key settings (encryption key).When automatic code conversion
(a passphrase function) has been selected and data communication is not functioning even with a normal wireless connection, it is recommended entering the
network key (encryption key) manually.
A7 Check the AP settings as follows. (The following is recommended for a standard
environment and thus may differ according to the specific wireless network environment.)
- When several APs are present simultaneously, check the channel setting for
each AP. When different APs are using nearby channels, interference may occur
between electronic waves. Set the APs' channels further apart from each other.
(Ex: Ch1, Ch5, Ch9, Ch13)
- When an AP's SSID (Service Set ID) option is set to "Hide", you cannot search
for that AP on the computer. We recommend canceling the "Hide" option for an
AP. The SSID is a name for distinguishing one wireless LAN from another wireless
LAN.
- It is recommended using Long Preamble. Preamble is a signal for data transmission synchronization. Short Preamble may be supported by some types of APs
but may cause compatibility problems.
Chapter 7. Recovering the Computer
7-19
- It is recommended using a static IP.
- Since static channel selection is more reliable than auto channel selection, it is
recommended setting a static channel.
Q4 In the Windows XP 'Available wireless networks' window, the
Wireless Network Connection is displayed as 'Not Available'.
A1 Check if the wireless LAN is turned on.
A2 Check if there is additional program for a wireless LAN connection installed.
Windows XP sup-ports wireless LAN connections through the Wireless Zero
Configuration (WZC) service. There-fore, an additional program for wireless LAN
connection is not required, unless the network requires a specific program.
However, installation of some wireless LAN related programs may sometimes disable the [View Available Wireless Networks] window supported by WZC service.
Exit the wireless LAN related program then check whether the window is
enabled.
A3 Initialize the device driver. Click Start > Control Panel > Performance and
Maintenance > System > Hardware tab > De-vice Manager > Network adapters,
and select the wireless LAN adapter. Right-click the net-work adaptor and select
'Disable'. Then right-click over the network adaptor and select 'Enable' after a
short wait to check that the device is operating properly.
A4 Right-click the My computer icon, and select Manage. When the Computer
Management win-dow appears, double-click Services and Applications on the
left, and then click Services from the sub menu tree. Select the Standard tab in
the right pane, double-click Wireless Zero Con-figuration and check that Startup
Type is configured to Automatic, and the Service status is Started.
A5 In the case of Windows XP, click Advanced in the [Wireless Network Connection]
dialog box (see "Connecting to an Access Point (AP)" (p50)) and make sure that
'Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings' is selected. This may
happen when a third-party wireless network setup program other than Windows
XP default program is installed. For setting up a wireless network using the
Windows XP program, this option should be selected.
Q5 When connecting to a computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network, I
cannot connect to another computer connected to the same computer-to-computer network.
A Make sure that the security settings and network name of the computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network is correct.A2Check the TCP/IP properties of the computers to be connected through the computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network. All of
the computers to be connected through a computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network should be configured so that their IP addresses are within the same subnet
range.
7-20 Manual
• If the TCP/IP Settings are configured to DHCP, the address is automatically configured to an address within the subnet IP range. This will take about 2~3 minutes.
• If the IP address is configured to static IP in TCP/IP properties, select Use the
following IP address in the TCP/IP properties of the wireless adapter, configure IP
ad-dress:10.0.0.1~10.0.0.254, and Subnet mask: 255.255.0.0, and then try
again.
• A fixed IP is recommended for a small-size network.
Q6 When using a computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network, sometimes I cannot search the access point.
A It may happen occasionally when you are using a computer-to-computer (Ad
Hoc) network connection. Even if you cannot find some access points, the computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network is operating properly. Click Refresh to view
the latest search result.
Q7 The network does not operate properly when both the wireless
and the wired net-work connections are simultaneously configured with the same IP address.
A You cannot use the wireless and the wired network connections using the same IP
address simultaneously. To use either the wireless or the wired network in turn
with the same IP ad-dress, you have to Disable whichever network device will not
be used in the network connection of the Control Panel.
Q8 The wireless LAN does not work properly when there is a device
operating on an adjacent frequency in the vicinity of the product.
A1 Channel interference may occur when a wireless video transceiver or a
microwave oven is be-ing used.If you experience channel interference from other
equipment, we recommended changing the channel to connect to the AP. For
more information about AP settings, refer to the User Manual supplied by the AP
manufacturer.
A2 Since IEEE802.11g equipment operates in hybrid mode when there is active
IEEE802.11b equipment, the data rate may be degraded.
Chapter 7. Recovering the Computer
7-21
Q9 An established wireless LAN connection is disconnected after
2~3 minutes, and the connection is not recovered.
A1 This may be caused by channel interference. Change the channel of the AP, and
reconnect.
A2 This may be caused by selecting the 'Use IEEE 802.1x network authentication'
option when IEEE 802.1x authentication is not available.
Check the properties of the AP in the wireless network settings. If the 'Use IEEE
802.1x authentication in this network' option is selected, deselect the option on
the Authentication tab.
For more detailed information about authentication server, ask your network
administrator.
A3 If the AP is configured to 'Use network authentication (Shared Key)' If the AP is
configured to authentication shared mode, all computers to be connected should
be configured as follows:If you are using Windows XP, select network authentication(shared mode) in the wireless net-work settings. Select Start > Control Panel >
Network and Internet Connections > Network Connections, right-click the
Wireless Network Connection icon and then select View Available Wireless Networks. Select Change Advanced Settings from the left menu, select an AP from
Preferred networks window in the Wireless Networks tab, and click the Properties
button. Select Shared Mode in the Network Authentication field of the
