Wireless projection
Introduction
This section will introduce wireless projection function for this projector. The
wireless projection function is only available for the model which is equipped
with integrated Acer Wireless Presentation Gateway (WPG) module. Acer WPG
enables multiple users to connect to an Acer projector wirelessly. This eliminates
the need to plug and unplug cables, enabling more efficient use of meeting time,
especially when there is more than one presenter in a meeting.
To perform wireless projection, you have to change the input source type to
"Wireless" by pressing the "Wireless" button on the remote control or the
"Source" button on the control panel or remote control.
System Requirements:
- Operating system: Windows® 2000 or Windows® XP
- CPU: Intel® Pentium® III at 750 MHz or equivalent with 128 MB of RAM
- Wireless LAN: IEEE 802.11b/g enabled
- Internet Browser: Internet Explorer 5.0 or above

Wireless projection
Setting up your WPG
Check the LED for the power status.
• Red indicates that the WPG is receiving power, but is inactive.
• Green indicates that the WPG is being used to project images.
You may also like to connect a LAN cable to the LAN (RJ-45) port on the side of
the dongle. This will allow you to connect to the Internet to retrieve interactive
content or download firmware upgrades as they become available.
Connecting to the WPG for the first
time
If this is the first time you’ve connected to the WPG, you will need to
download and install the driver from the WPG. The software is stored on
the WPG, so there is no need for an installation CD. Ensure that you have
administrator-level permission on your computer so that you can install
the software.
To download the software, you must ensure that your browser is
set to open up a website. If your browser is set to open with a blank
page, you will not be able to download the software. To check this,
select Tools > Internet Options. Ensure that there is a website in
the text box.

2)
Scan for available WLAN APs using your preferred WLAN manager.
3)
Select the AP labeled “AcerProjector” from the list of available APs.
Connect to this AP. If there is more than one WPG listed, determine
which one is the one you want to connect to from the SSID listed in
the upper left-hand corner of the screen.
4)
If you receive any security warnings, select “Connect Anyway.”
5)
Once the connection is established, open your Internet browser. You
will automatically be taken to the Acer WPG welcome page, where
you will be able to download the driver.

Connecting to a projector
Once you’ve installed the software, you will be able to connect to any projector
that is equipped with the Acer WPG. To connect to a projector, simply doubleclick the Acer WPG icon on your desktop to launch the application.
The application will automatically detect available WPGs. Each WPG is identifiable by the "AcerProjector" indicator in the SSID. If the projector is installed
in a permanent location, you may also choose to assign a specific SSID to that
projector, indicating, for example, the number of the room in which the projector is installed (refer to "Configuration" later in this guide).
If there are multiple WPGs within the range of your notebook's receiver (they
may be in different rooms), and the feature is enabled (refer to "Configuration"
later in this guide), you will be able to identify the correct one by the "Projector
ID" indicated in the top left-hand corner of the projected screen. The Projector
ID consists of four randomly-generated numbers. Entering these numbers into
the WPG application on your notebook will restrict your connection to only
that projector.
