Special features
1.3.1
Wireless LAN features
54 Mbps speed advantage
With data transmission rate up to five times faster than IEEE 802.11b
standards, the WiFi-TV breaks the wireless data transmission speed barrier
to give you faster Internet connection and file sharing capabilities.
One Touch setup wizard
Designed for novice home users and experts alike, the One Touch setup
wizard guides you through the entire setup process without the hassles of
configuring confusing network settings.
The One Touch wizard guides you in configuring the WiFi-TV as an access
point and intelligently configures the Internet connection sharing settings
so you can share your Internet connection with other computers in your
home or office network.
Easy integration and flexibility
Because WiFi-TV uses IEEE 802.11a/b/g standard, you can easily integrate
all wireless devices using different wireless standards. This flexibility lets
you use the WiFi-TV card in almost any wireless LAN environment.
Soft access point function
If you are using a Windows® 2000/XP/Server 2003 operating system, you
can transform the WiFi-TV card into a Software Access Point (Soft AP).
When in Soft AP mode, WiFi-TV can support an unlimited number of client
computers with wireless LAN adapters making it an ideal solution for homes
and offices with single Internet connection or network printer.
Wireless bridge capability
Integrate several wireless LANs using the wireless bridge capability of the
WiFi-TV. With the bundled software utilities, you can connect several
wireless LANs in no time without buying expensive wireless LAN peripherals.
Full software support
The WiFi-TV support CD includes the latest utilities that could help you set
up and create a wireless home or office network. These utilities also assist
you in integrating the card to an existing wireless network.
Moveable omni-directional dual-band antenna

1.3.2
TV features
Watch TV on your PC
The WiFi-TV card lets you watch TV on your PC. With a digital cable TV/FM
radio and analog cable TV interfaces, WiFi-TV supports both digital (DVB-T)
and analog cable TV and FM radio signals. Digital cable TV signals provide
clearer, sharper images, and stereo quality sound. Contact your local cable
TV provider for the availability of this service.
Supports various TV standards
The card supports NTSC, PAL, or SECAM TV standard. If the TV standard in
your area is NTSC, use the PAL/SECAM to NTSC RF adapter to receive TV
signals from your digital or analog cable TV provider.
Connectivity
If you want to watch on your television set or create a movie from your
digital video recorder, you can use the supplied AV cable to connect the
WiFi-TV to your television or camcorder. With this, you still enjoy digital or
analog cable TV signals anytime. You can also use the AV cable to connect
other multimedia devices such as VCRs and digital cameras.
Full software support
Your WiFi-TV package includes the PowerCinema application that allows you
to watch and record your favorite TV programs, watch DVD/VCD movies,
browse photos stored in your computer, or listen to your favorite music CD
or FM radio station.

Wi-Fi antenna
The multi-directional, moveable, and dual-band antenna maximizes the
WiFi-TV wireless coverage.
To install the antenna:
2-4
1.
Locate the wireless LAN
antenna port on the card
bracket.
2.
Connect the antenna twist-on
connector (female) to the
wireless LAN antenna port
(male).
3.
Place the antenna at an
elevated location to enhance
your wireless coverage.
•
Do not place the antenna under your table or in a closed
compartment.
•
The speed of wireless transmission decreases as you move farther
from the access point. To achieve faster data transmission, minimize
the distance between the WiFi-TV and the access point
(Infrastructure mode) or the other wireless device.
Chapter 2: Installation
Operating range
The WiFi-TV range is dependent on the operating environment. Every home
or office layout varies in obstacles, barriers, or wall types that could reflect
or absorb radio signals. For example, two wireless devices in an open space
can achieve an operating distance of up to 200 ft, while the same devices
can only achieve up to 80 ft when used indoors.
By default, the device automatically adjusts the data rate to maintain an
operational wireless transmission. Therefore, a wireless device that is close
to the access point may operate at higher speeds while a wireless device
far from the access point may operate at lower speeds.
Site survey
A site survey (provided with the ASUS WiFi-TV card) analyzes the
installation environment and recommends the best location for wireless
LAN devices and access points.
