Chapter 1 Introduction
Getting to Know the Adapter
This section contains a quick description of the Adapter’s external features.
Front Panel
The Adapter’s front panel contains two lights (LEDs): Power and Wireless.
Power Light
The Power light glows green when the Adapter is powered on, and remains off
(or dark) when no power is present.
Wireless Light
The Wireless light glows solid green when the Adapter is connected to a wireless
network, and remains off (or dark) when not connected to a network. When the
Wireless light flickers, data traffic is moving across the wireless network.
Rear Panel
The Adapter’s rear panel contains three ports (Power, Antenna [unlabeled], and
Ethernet), as well as the Reset button.

Actiontec 54 Mbps Wireless Game Adapter User Manual
Power Port
The Power port is used to connect the Adapter to an electrical wall outlet via the
Power cord.
Antenna Port
The Antenna port (an RP-SMA connector) allows the user to connect various
types of antenna to the Adapter. The antenna included in the Adapter package
connects to the Antenna port.
Ethernet Port
The Ethernet Port is used to connect the Adapter to a computer or gaming console via the yellow Ethernet cable.
Reset Button
The Reset button is used to restore the Adapter’s factory default settings. To do
this, press the Reset button for 15 seconds.

Understanding the
Wireless Network
2
Wireless local area networks (WLAN) perform the exact same functions as wired
local area networks (LAN). Each device in the WLAN uses a data radio device to
connect to the network, and all devices in the network share the same frequency
and method for identifying wireless devices. Wireless local area networks differ
from wired local area networks only in their operating mode. The two operation
modes are Ad Hoc and Infrastructure.
Ad Hoc Mode
Ad hoc mode is a networking framework by which wireless devices or stations
communicate directly with each other, without the need for an access point or
wireless router/gateway.
Ad hoc mode is also called peer-to-peer mode or independent basic service set
(IBSS). This mode is used when playing heat-to-head games, in which all the participants are playing against each other in the same room, or at least within range
of the wireless network adapters.
5
Actiontec 54 Mbps Wireless Game Adapter User Manual
Infrastructure Mode
Infrastructure mode is a networking framework where devices communicate
with each other by first going through an access point or wireless router/gateway.
Infrastructure mode lets wireless devices communicate with each other or with a
wired network. With this type of network, and a router connected to the internet,
online games can be played, with participants in the same room and/or across the
internet.
Two types of service can exist while in infrastructure mode:
Basic Service Set (BSS) - An access point connected to a wired network and a
set of wireless stations.
Extended Service Set (ESS) - A set of two or more basic service sets forming a
single subnetwork.

This chapter details the steps involved in connecting the Adapter to a game console
or computer, including installing the antenna and connecting the yellow Ethernet
cable and black Power cord.
☞
Note: The Adapter is designed with the utmost care for the
safety of those who install and use it. However, special attention
must be paid to the dangers of electric shock and static electricity when working with electronic equipment. All guidelines of
this manual and of the computer manufacturer must be followed at all times to ensure the safe use of the equipment.
Connecting the Adapter
To connect the Adapter to a network:
1. Get the Adapter from the package.

Actiontec 54 Mbps Wireless Game Adapter User Manual
2. Get the yellow Ethernet cable from the package. Plug one end of the cable
in Ethernet port on the back of the Adapter. When seated properly, the cable
will “click” in the port.
3. Plug the other end of the yellow Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on
the back of the game console (Xbox, PlayStation 2, etc.) or computer. When
seated properly, the cable will “click” in the port.
4. Get the black Power cord from the package. Plug the smaller end into the
Power port on the back of the Adapter.

Chapter 3 Connecting the Adapter
3. Plug the larger end of the black Power Cord into an electrical outlet.
When connected properly, the Adapter’s “Power” light glows solid green.
The Adapter is now connected to the network. For best performance, the Adapter
should be placed in on a flat surface in a horizontal position with the antenna
extended up, as shown below:

Troubleshooting
5
This chapter contains information to help solve potential problems with the installation and operation of the Adapter. For further information, check the Actiontec
Web site at www.actiontec.com.
Troubleshooting
The Adapter won’t connect to an access point or wireless router.
Using the Web Configurator (see page 16), perform the following steps:
s
Make sure the operating mode is set to Infrastructure mode.
s
Make sure the SSID is the same as that of the access point/wireless router.
Many of these devices require all connecting devices to match the letter case.
s
From the Security screen, make sure all of the WEP settings match the WEP
settings of your access point/wireless router.
Change the Adapter’s IP address.
There are two methods to change the Adapter’s IP address.
s
Open the Adapter’s Configuration Utility (see page 12). From the IP Settings
screen, activate Static IP Address by clicking in the appropriate circle, then
enter the IP address in the text boxes below.
s
If you encounter problems, power the Adapter off and on again, or push the
Reset button. Then try to change the IP address again.
The Configuration Utility won’t detect the Adapter.
Make sure the Ethernet cable and Power cord are properly connected and the green
Power and Ethernet lights are on.
The Configuration Utility won’t open.
Make sure a network adapter is installed on the computer.
23
Actiontec 54 Mbps Wireless Game Adapter User Manual
The Configuration Utility won’t recognize my password.
The password is case-sensitive. Make sure you are using the correct case(s) when
entering the password.
If you forget your password, push the Adapter’s Reset button for 15 seconds. This
will reset the user name and password to the default settings (user name: admin;
password: admin); however, all the Adapter’s settings will be reset to the factory
defaults as well.
The changes made through the Configuration Utility are not active.
Click Refresh in the Configuration Utility. If the new settings aren’t displayed,
unplug the Power cord from the Adapter, then plug it back in again. Click the
Refresh button again.
Frequently Asked Questions
How far can I be from an access point and maintain a connection?
The range depends on the environment. Indoor range is usually about 90 meters
(300 ft.); outdoor range can reach up to 533 meters (1750 ft.).
How fast is the wireless network?
The rated speed of the wireless network under optimal conditions is 54 Mbps. The
speed varies, however, depending on distance from the access point, gateway, or
router and the amount of attenuation (physical barriers such as walls, glass, etc.)
the wireless signal must go through.
I have Windows XP and I set up the Adapter according to the instructions, but I’m not able to get online. What should I do?
The Ethernet adapter installed in your computer may not have picked up an IP
address. Reboot the computer to get a connection.
Can I use the Adapter to connect to an 802.11b access point?
Yes, the Adapter can connect to an 802.11b access point.
