3. Networ k Deployment
3.1
WiJETs supported wireless radio modes:
3.1.1 Understanding WiJET Connections
3.1.2 Local Access Point:
Using a WiJET is a two-step process
A WiJET, taken straight “out-of-the-box” by default is set to operate
as a "Local Access Point". This can be seen on the Banner Display
screen after the unit first boots up. This mode allows users to easily
connect with a WiJET with minimal technical expertise. Any
computer can use the WiJET as long as they can wirelessly connect
with it. The web-based administration tool can be used to select or
deselect this radio operation mode.
•
Connecting wirelessly to a WiJET – this is analogous to
connecting a wire to the WiJET from a computer.
•
Establishing a session – this actually allows user to make
presentations using a WiJET.
Note that multiple computers can be connected to a single WiJET
wirelessly at the same time. Only one computer can establish a
session with an individual WiJET at any one time. However, it is
possible for a single computer to establish sessions with up to six
different WiJETs at the same time.
3.1.3 Infrastructure Station:
This mode allows a WiJET to become integrated into an existing
wireless Network. Theoretically, any computer on the Network will be
able to access the WiJET while maintaining all existing Network
connections (including Internet connections). The web-based
administration tool is used to select or deselect this radio operation
mode and set Network parameters.

3.2
WiJET Networking Basics
WiJETs when set to operate in infrastructure station mode can be
deployed within a Network structure. This can offer advantages to
users that standalone units cannot. Networks vary widely in
configuration and type; however, the following benefits should be
achievable on most Networks:
Access to the Internet/Intranet – web pages can be
displayed on WiJET enabled projectors and monitors
Access to normal Network resources – presentation files and
other resources can be stored anywhere on the Network
Any MAC that has access to the Network will have access to
the WiJETs and be able to make presentations on a Network
integrated WiJET.
o The presenting computer does not even need a
WiFi adapter as long as it can route data
through a Network AP.
o The presenting computer must run the PSM
locally – this does not have to be permanently
installed. Users have the option of running the
WiJET PSM directly from the CD-ROM drive.
A single MAC can access up to 6 WiJETs through Network
APs (802.11g standard recommended) and make
simultaneous presentations.
WiJET Technical Manual
Version 2.3
3.3
Network Configuration
Integrating WiJETs into an existing WLAN/LAN is a relatively
straightforward exercise. Deployment will include the following steps
(if detailed instructions are needed please refer to the WiJET
Network Guide towards the end of this manual):
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Assign the WiJETs static IP addresses.
Assign the WiJETs a descriptive name (recommended).
Set the WiJETs to operate in INFRASTRUCTURE STATION
mode.
Assign the WiJETs to a Network AP through a proper SSID
assignment.
Enable each WiJET with any necessary Network security
protocols.
Upload a custom banner display page with the appropriate
organization logo (optional).

3.3.1 Accessing a Network WiJET
•
•
•
•
•
Log into the Network.
Start the PSM.
If the Network only has one WiJET it will be accessed
directly when a session is established.
If there are multiple WiJETs on the same subnet the will list
all WiJETs not current in session.
Users can also select either all-available WiJETs or can
choose specific multiple units by holding the shift key when
selecting units.
3.3.2 Using Network integrated WiJETs
Standard usage is identical to standalone WiJETs operating in Local
Access Point mode. Only the differences will be mentioned here.
Accessing the Internet and Network Content
Once a session is established, Network and Internet/Intranet content
can be displayed on the WiJET enabled display device.
Simultaneous Multiple Displays
Selecting multiple available WiJETs in the Connection List will allow
a session to be established between a MAC and multiple WiJETs.
Up to six WiJET units can be connected to in this manner and the
resultant displays will be simultaneous.

4. Web-Based Administration
4.1
WiJET Configuration and Setup
The WiJET provides a Web-based administration application for
configuration of the operating modes and parameters of the unit.
This application allows users to customize the banner page, set up
wireless security, and integrate the WiJET with the LAN as well as to
upgrade the WiJET’s firmware.
4.1.1 System Requirements
A web-browser with JavaScript enabled.
IEEE 802.11b/g or Wi-Fi enabled computer (either built-in
or add-on NIC).
Warning:
Do not power off or disconnect the WiJET while
modifying its settings. Doing so may irreversibly
corrupt the internal firmware of the WiJET.
4.1.2 Accessing the Web-based Administration Tool
To access the web-based administration tool, the user should install
PSM as described in section 1.2.2.
Figure 8. Accessing the Administration Tool
To use WiJET Administration Manager, the users must have an
IEEE 802.11b/g wireless network and the WiJET PSM running on
their Macintosh computer. Once a session has been established, the
user will be able to access the “Configure WiJET” menu item under
“Action.” See the screen image in Figure 8.
This menu item brings up the default web browser on the Macintosh
computer and automatically connects with the administrative Web
page of the WiJET. This site requires that the correct user name and
password to be entered before it can be accessed:
Default user name:

Page 14 of 29
4.2
Configuration
•
As an Infrastructure Station, the unit must use an SSID in
use on the local network in order to join an existing Wireless
Network
•
As an Access Point, the WiJET’s SSID is used to connect
other wireless adapters to it.
4.2.1 Configuration Settings:
Radio Mode: The WiJET supports two radio modes: Access Point
and Infrastructure Station. By default, WiJET operates as an Access
Point. For integration with an existing network the WiJET must be in
Infrastructure Station mode.
Operation Mode: When the WiJET is set as an Access Point, the
operation mode can be either Automatic or Manual. The default
mode is Automatic.
Default Channel: Under Automatic mode, this will be the channel
utilized in an interference-free environment. Under manual mode,
this unit will operate only on the specified channel. This setting has
no effect when the unit is in infrastructure mode - the WiJET will
default to the same channel used by the Access Point used to
connect with it.
Under Automatic mode, the WiJET will automatically select an
unused SSID and the clearest channel upon boot up. The SSID will
be based on the name entered by the user in the SSID field. If the
assigned SSID is detected as being already in use by another
Access Point, the WiJET will automatically append the name with a
number between 01 and 09.
Output power: Lower the output power level to decrease the radio
coverage area. Decreasing output power may help to avoid
interference when many units are deployed in a small area.
Under Manual mode, the WiJET will use the SSID and channel
designated by the user.
When a unit is configured as an
Infrastructure Station, only the Manual operation mode is allowed.
Reset to Factory Default: This button resets all operating parameters
to WiJET factory default values. Use this feature with caution. Note
that once reset, previously connected computers may no longer be
able to connect with the unit. The computers’ settings may also have
to be changed in order to reconnect.
SSID / Network Name: The text field for entering SSID. This can be
up to 30 characters long. The value of this field depends on the
operating mode of the unit:
WiJET Technical Manual
Version 2.3

Authentication Type: Under the Open System, the wireless
association authenticating process does not check the encryption
key and allows any Wi-Fi radio to connect to the unit. When “Shared
Key” is enabled, the encryption key is checked during the first
authentication process and only the Wi-Fi radios with the correct
encryption keys can connect to the unit.
Transmission key selection: One of the four WEP keys needs to be
selected for transmitting data frames. The radio can de-encrypt
received data encrypted in any one of the four entered keys, but it
uses only one of the keys for transmitting its data.
WEP enabled: This check box allows users to enable or disable the
WEP encryption feature. The product currently supports the default
(shared) 64-bit and 128-bit WEP key scheme as defined in the
802.11 standard. A set of four keys needs to be entered in the
default-key scheme.
WEP key length: The 64-bit encryption is currently the 802.11
standard. The 128-bit encryption is supported by equipment from a
limited number of vendors. Note that the “user-controlled” portion of
the 64-bit encryption is just 40 bits (10 Hex digits) and that for the
128-bit encryption is just 104 bits (26 Hex digits)—3-bytes of the
encryption key are internal to the encryption algorithm.
WEP Keys: A set of four keys needs to be created when WEP is
enabled.

Notes about the WiJET’s Auto-IP feature:
WiJETs have a built in feature called “Auto-IP”. This is designed to
make the establishment of sessions easier for non-technical users.
The Auto-IP feature has several characteristics that Network
Technicians should be aware of:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Figure 10 The ADMINISTRATION tab
•
WiJET Technical Manual
Version 2.3
The PSM has the capability of assigning a new Network IP
address from the same subnet as the computer running the
PSM at the time that a session is established.
The PSM assigned IP address is displayed on the Banner
Display screen when the WiJET is not in session.
The WiJET will keep its newly acquired IP address unless
rebooted or assigned a new one during the course of a new
PSM session.
There is a procedure in place to prevent the PSM assigning
the WiJET a duplicate IP address in the same subnet.
Note that due to this feature, a WiJET can be assigned a
different IP address each time a session is established.
Although it is possible to assign a fixed IP address to the
WiJET (which is recommended for all Network integrated
WiJETs), the Auto-IP function can cause a WiJET to take on
any unassigned IP address within the same subnet as the
PSM that is available – including those that may have been
reserved for other functions.
A Network with a correctly deployed IP addressing strategy
should never have problems with this feature. In case of
problems, power-cycling a WiJET will cause it to default back
to its originally assigned fixed IP address (or one of the
factory defaults).

Adjusting the Screen Refresh Rate
Most monitors and projectors will work automatically with the
WiJET’s default screen refresh rate settings. Some, however, may
need adjustments before the entire screen can be seen. This is
achieved by matching the correct screen refresh rates and by
making manual adjustments on the display device.
See if the problem exists in both 800x600 and 1024x768
screen modes. Usually, only one mode is affected. You will
only need to adjust for the mode that is affected.
To access the WiJET’s screen refresh rate settings, establish a
session with the WiJET and enter the following URL address into
your web browser:
http:// [ the WiJET’s current IP address ] /refresh.cgi

Custom Banners Display Images
It is possible to replace the default Banner Display graphic. This
allows the WiJET to display company or organization logos when the
unit is not in session. The WiJET can store up to 200 JPG images
2
(depending on the actual file sizes of the images ), and by default,
each image will be cycled every 10 seconds. Use this feature to
allow the WiJET to display POP/marketing, company or
organizational information when it is not in session.
Uploading the image
This feature actually allows users to preload images, connect the
WiJET to a display device and just let it run a show even without a
wireless or computer connection. In addition, it is possible to hide the
system messages that are usually displayed on the Banner Display
page. This is done by un-checking the Banner Information Enabled:
check box under the 4.3 Administration tab.
4.7.1 Preparing the image
•
•
•
Images are uploaded using the Upload section of the Web-based
Administration Tool:
Uploaded images must be no larger than 800x600 pixels
and ideally 72 dpi (dots per inch). Note that the default
image is smaller than 800x600. A standard 800x600
image will fill the entire display screen.
The individual picture file size cannot be larger than
2MB.
Pictures must be in the JPG format (use the .jpg format
and not the .jpeg format).
The uploaded image can come from almost any source. Computer
desktop backgrounds make ideal candidates and thousands are
available for free from the Internet. If using pictures from a digital
camera, in general, these pictures must be preprocessed in a photoediting program to match the criteria listed above.
4.7.2 Displaying the images
•
Use the Browse button to select images to load.
•
File is auto-populated when an image is selected but can
be changed for images stored on the WiJET (only).
•
Duration is the length of time in seconds that an image is
displayed. (Setting this value to –1 will show an image
indefinitely).
•
Order is used to set the sequence of the display.
•
Playable – this is an indicator only that the image is
“playable” (i.e. will be displayed).
•
Delete – used to remove unwanted images from the
WiJET’s memory (including the default banner image).
•
Upload and Apply Changes – select to upload images.
The WiJET will reboot after this button is clicked.
Once the images are uploaded, the images will be automatically
displayed when the WiJET is not in session. If there is more than one
image, the WiJET will cycle the images in rotation.

Troubleshooting Guidelines
Unable to Connect or Establish a Session with a Unit
The WiJET suddenly displays the Banner Display
The "WiJET not available" message box displays while trying to establish a session
with WiJET. The possible causes are listed below.
If link-loss lasts for a preset period of time, the product will terminate the reconnection
waiting state and display the banner page. Whenever a wireless link can be sustained
with the unit, a computer can establish a fresh presentation session.
•
The SSID setting of the computer wireless adapter does not match the
WiJET’s SSID.
•
The computer's WiFi Adapter was not set to operate in Infrastructure Station
mode.
•
The computer's WiFi Adapter was not set to use the same encryption
settings as the WiJET once the unit's default encryption settings were
changed.
•
The unit is not receiving the wireless signal. Reboot the WiJET.
•
With certain brands of PCMCIA 802.11g WiFi cards, it may take a bit longer
to link up with the WiJET. Wait awhile for the WiFi card to establish a
wireless connection with the WiJET and then click on the "Establish a
Session" on the PSM's main dialog again.
•
Some DHCP-enabled wireless Network computers may take several
minutes after boot up before it is able to obtain a valid Network IP address.
Use the "ipconfig" command to see if a valid IP address has been assigned
to the corresponding Network connection. When the computer has finally
been assigned a valid IP address, click on the "Establish a Session" on the
PSM's main dialog again.
The default duration for a link-loss is 8 seconds. The WiJET will attempt to reconnect
3 times during this duration. If no connection is reestablished before the reconnection
timer runs out, the unit will revert the display to the banner page.
The WiJET session is interrupted during a presentation
This signals that the unit has detected a link-loss for an extended period of time or
severe communication error. Since the product is designed to support one
presentation at a time, the WiJET cleans up the communication error and returns itself
to the initial state (Banner Display). In these situations, the WiJET will be available for
connection. The product is designed this way in order to prevent the unit from being
locked up by one potentially malfunctioning computer. With the auto-reconnection
feature, this rarely occurs.
If this condition occurs, follow the steps below:
•
Click "Establish a Session" to try to resume the presentation. If the
presentation is successfully resumed, the abnormal condition is just
temporary and no further action is required.
•
If the current presenter failed to resume the presentation by clicking
"Establish a Session", have another presenter try to "Establish a Session". If
this new presenter can successfully start a presentation, the problem is
localized on the previous presenter's computer and/or its wireless card.
•
If a second presenter also fails to "Establish a Session" to the unit, a
persistent abnormal condition has to be identified. Follow other
troubleshooting tips in this chapter to identify the persistent abnormal
condition. Most commonly, this is caused by radio interference.
The WiJET screen appears frozen during a presentation
This indicates that the WiJET unit has suffered a link-loss. New material from the
computer cannot reach the unit. The unit therefore continues to display the last image.
The WiJET and PSM have an intelligent built-in mechanism to detect the link-loss and
will automatically attempt to restore the connection. When a link-loss has been
detected, the PSM displays a message box and tries to automatically restore the
connection. If the auto-reconnection attempt is successful, the user does not need to
do anything. In this case, the auto-reconnection is user transparent. However, if the
link-loss persists, for instance, if a PCMCIA card was accidentally pulled out, then the
user must restore the wireless link so that the auto-reconnection attempts can
succeed. The presentation screen will not be updated once the link is lost until a
connection is re-established.

Radio Interference
Limited Warranty
Eliminate or reduce RF interference by trying the following:
•
•
Find the "channel" used by the source of the interference and coordinate the
Network and the interference source to be on channels that are at least
20MHz, but preferably 30MHz, apart. In other words, set all neighboring
Networks to be four channels apart.
Move the unit to a location where the interference is minimized. In general, it
is a good practice to keep the WiJET and its presentation computer away
from other wireless devices.
•
Avoid using 2.4GHz cordless phones in the vicinity of the radio.
•
Keep the computer and the WiJET unit away from microwave ovens and
large metal objects.
•
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio technician for help.
