IEEE 802.11b Wireless LAN
Wireless communication occurs over radio waves rather than a wire. Like a cordless telephone, a wireless LAN
uses radio signals instead of wires to exchange data. A wireless network eliminates the need for expensive and
intrusive wiring to connect computers throughout the home or office. Mobile users can remain connected to the
network even when carrying their laptop to different locations in the home or office.
Each computer on a wireless LAN requires an adapter described in “Optional Accessories” on page 4:
•
For wireless laptops connections, use a Motorola PCC11b Wireless Card in the PCMCIA slot.
•
For wireless desktop connections, use a Motororal USB11b Wireless Adapter to connect your PC USB port.
Sample wireless network connections
To set up the SBG, on a computer wired to the SBG over Ethernet or USB, perform the procedures in “Setting Up
the Wireless LAN” on page 67.
To set up each wireless client (station):
1
Insert the PCC11b and USB11b Wireless Adapter CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive on the client.
2
Install the device software from the CD.
3
Connect the Motorola PCC11b wireless card or USB11b wireless adapter following the instructions supplied
with the card or adapter

Security
The Motorola SBG1000 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway provides:
•
A firewall to protect the SBG LAN from undesired attacks over the Internet
•
Security measures to prevent eavesdropping of wireless data
Network Address Translation (NAT) provides some security because the IP addresses of SBG LAN computers are
not visible on the Internet.
The logical network diagram does not necessarily correspond to the network cabling. A full discussion of network
security is beyond the scope of this document.

Firewall
The SBG1000 firewall protects the SBG LAN from undesired attacks and other intrusions from the Internet. It
provides an advanced integrated stateful-inspection firewall supporting intrusion detection, session tracking, and
denial-of-service attack prevention. The firewall:
•
Maintains state data for every TCP/IP session on the OSI network and transport layers
•
Monitors all incoming and outgoing packets, applies the firewall policy to each one, and screens for improper
packets and intrusion attempts
•
Provides comprehensive logging for all:
—
User authentications
—
Rejected internal and external connection requests
—
Session creation and termination
—
Outside attacks (intrusion detection)
You can configure the firewall filters to set rules for port usage and to block specific IP domains and networks. For
information about choosing a default firewall policy, see “Setting the Firewall Policy” on page 36.

DMZ
A de-militarized zone (DMZ) is one or more computers logically located outside the firewall between an SBG LAN
and the Internet. A DMZ prevents direct access by outside users to private data. You can use a DMZ to set up a
web server without exposing confidential data on your network. A DMZ is also useful for gamers that have a
problem running a computer game’s protocol through a firewall. DMZ provides the gamer a way to expose a single
host directly to the Internet and thus overcome any firewall issues.
Wireless Security
To prevent unauthorized eavesdropping of data transmitted over the wireless LAN, you must enable wireless
security. The default Open authentication setting provides no security for transmitted data.
You can encrypt data transmitted over the IEEE 802.11b wireless interface by configuring a WEP key on the
Motorola SBG1000 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway and wireless LAN clients (stations).
You can also define a MAC access control list to restrict wireless LAN access to specified clients based on the
client MAC address.
If you enable closed network operation, the network name (ESSID) is not transmitted in the IEEE 802.11b beacon
frame. This provides additional network protection because only IEEE 802.11b stations that are configured with
your network name can associate with the SBG. Closed network operation is not part of the IEEE 802.11b
standard
For information about configuring a WEP key, see “Configuring Basic Wireless LAN Security” on page 69.
Virtual Private Networks
The SBG1000 allows multiple tunnel VPN pass-through operation to securely connect remote computers over the
Internet through the SBG1000. The SBG1000:
•
Is compatible with Point to Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) and Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP)
•
Is fully interoperable with any IPSec client or gateway and ANX certified IPSec stacks

Setting the Firewall Policy
Caution!
Firewalls are not foolproof. Choose the most secure firewall policy you can. To enable easy network
setup, the default firewall policy is Low, which provides minimum security.
To select a predefined policy for all packets processed by the firewall:
1
On the SBG Setup Program left panel, click Firewall.
2
Click POLICY.
3
Click basic to display the options for firewall policy:
4
Select one of the following. Unless you have the necessary expertise and need to setup a custom firewall,
use High, Medium, or Low:
5
High
Safest configuration, highest security. We recommend this setting.
Medium
Common configuration, modest risk
Low
Minimum security, higher risk
Custom
You can create a custom firewall policy on the Firewall > POLICY — advanced Page (see page 39). Do
not create a custom policy unless you have the necessary expertise and the need to do so.
None
This setting disables the firewall and provides no security. We do not recommend this setting.

Firewall > POLICY — basic Page
Use this page to select a predefined firewall policy for all packets processed by the SBG firewall, as described in
“Setting the Firewall Policy” on page 36. Advanced users only can create a custom policy on the Firewall >
POLICY — advanced Page (see page 39). The FIREWALL POLICY setting None disables the firewall and
provides no security. We do not recommend this setting.
The predefined policies provide outbound Internet access for computers on the SBG LAN.
The SBG firewall uses stateful inspection to allow inbound responses when there already is an outbound session
running corresponding to the data flow. For example, if you use a web browser, outbound HTTP connections are
permitted on port 80. Inbound responses from the Internet are allowed because an outbound session is
established. When required, the SBG firewall can be configured to allow inbound packets without first
establishing an outbound session.

Configuring Basic Wireless LAN Security
Caution!
The default settings provide no security for wireless data. After the wireless LAN is operational, be sure
to enable Shared Key Authentication and Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption. You must
configure the same WEP key on the SBG1000 access point and all wireless clients (stations).
To enable WEP and set the key on the SBG1000:
1
On the SBG Setup Program left frame, click Wireless.
2
Click the SECURITY tab to display the Wireless > SECURITY — basic screen:
3
Set the following:
Authentication
Sets whether shared key authentication is enabled to provide data privacy on the wireless LAN:
• Open System — Any wireless LAN client can transmit data to any other client without
authentication. Open authentication provides no security for transmitted data.
• Shared Key — All data transmitted over the wireless LAN is encrypted. The SBG authenticates
and transfers data to and from all clients having shared key authentication enabled and an
identical WEP key.
For optimal security, we recommend changing the WEP keys frequently. The default is Open
System.
Encryption
Use a WEP key length that is compatible with your wireless client adapters. Choose one of:
• Enable 64-Bit — Use only if you have wireless clients that do not support 128-bit encryption
• Enable 128-Bit — The recommended setting for stronger encryption; supported by the Motorola
PCC11b wireless card, USB11b wireless adapter, and most current wireless adapters
• Disable WEP — Recommended during network setup only
Key 1 to Key 4
Sets the active WEP key. You can enter up to four 64-bit or 128-bit WEP keys containing the

Configuring Wireless Clients
For each wireless client computer (station), install the wireless client card or adapter — such as a Motorola
PCC11b wireless card or Motorola USB11b wireless adapter — following the instructions supplied with the card or
adapter.
Configure the card or adapter to obtain an IP address automatically. The Motorola PCC11b wireless card and
Motorola USB11b wireless adapter are supplied with a client configuration program called Wireless Client Manger,
which is installed in the Windows Startup group.
If Wireless Client Manager is running, the

To distinguish it from other nearby IEEE 802.11b wireless LANs, each wireless LAN is identified by a unique
network name (also known as a network identifier or ESSID). When prompted for the network identifier, network
name, or ESSID, type the name set in the ESSID field on the Wireless > NETWORK window in the SBG Setup
Program. For more information, see “Configuring a Unique Wireless Network Name” on page 68.
After you specify the network name, the wireless card or adapter automatically scans for an IEEE 802.11b access
point such as the SBG1000 and the proper channel and data rate.
If shared key authentication is enabled and a WEP key is set on the SBG1000 as described in “Configuring Basic
Wireless LAN Security” on page 69, you must enter the same WEP key on the wireless client. The SBG1000
cannot authenticate a client if:
•
Shared key authentication is enabled on the SBG1000 but not on the client
•
The client WEP key does not match the SBG1000 WEP key
Caution!
If shared key authentication is not enabled and no WEP key is set, there is no security for wireless
data. You must configure the same WEP key on the SBG1000 and all wireless clients.
After you correctly set the network name and WEP key on the client computer, you should be able to use it to surf
the Internet.
Wireless Pages in the SBG Setup Program
Use the Wireless pages to control and monitor the wireless interface:
•
Wireless > STATUS Page (see page 71)

Description
Enable Wireless
Interface
Check this box to enable the wireless interface.
ESSID
Sets a unique identifier to associate wireless clients with the SBG access point. This
distinguishes between multiple wireless LANs in the same area. All clients on wireless LAN
must have the same Network Name as the access point. It can be any alphanumeric,
case-sensitive string up to 32 characters. The default is “Motorola.” We strongly recommend
not using the default.
Channel
Sets the wireless radio channel. You can change the channel if you encounter interference on
the default channel. The default is 1 (one), except in countries where the first channel
permitted for IEEE 802.11b wireless operation is not one.
Basic Rate
Sets the wireless data transmission rates that all wireless LAN clients must be able to receive:
• 1, 2 Mbps. The SBG1000 attempts to transmit at 2 Mbps. Use this setting if the wireless
LAN has only legacy IEEE 802.11b clients.
• 1, 2, 5.5, and 11 Mbps. The SBG1000 attempts to transmit at 11 Mbps. If there are
obstacles or interference, it automatically steps down to the highest rate that allows
transmission. Use this setting if the wireless LAN has fully-compliant IEEE 802.11b clients.
The default is 1, 2, 5.5, 11 Mbps.

Transmit Power
Sets the transmit power on the SBG1000 wireless access point — 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50, or 100
mW. The default is 32 mW. Transmit power control is an optional IEEE 802.11b feature.
RTS Threshold
The Request To Send Threshold sets the packet size at which the access point issues an RTS
before sending the packet. A low RTS can help when many clients are associated with the
SBG1000 or when the clients are far apart and can detect the SBG1000 but not each other.
The value can be 0 to 2347 bytes. The default is 2347.
Fragmentation
Threshold
Sets the size at which packets are fragmented (sent as several packets instead of as one
packet). A low Fragmentation Threshold can help when communication is poor or when there
is a significant interference.
The default is 2346. The value can be 256 to 2346 bytes.
Enable Short Preamble Short preamble can improve throughput when the SBG1000 access point and associated
clients operate at 2, 5.5, or 11 Mbps. If you enable short preamble, be sure all wireless clients
also support short preamble. Short preamble is an optional IEEE 802.11b feature that is useful
if maximum throughput is important and interoperability with legacy IEEE 802.11b equipment is
not required. The default is Disabled.

Frequently-Asked Questions
Here are answers to questions our customers frequently ask:
Q
What is high-speed cable Internet access?
A
Cable Internet access uses cable television wires instead of telephone lines to connect to the Internet. It is
extremely fast and does not tie up telephone lines for incoming or outgoing calls and faxes.
Q
How fast is the Motorola SBG1000 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway?
A
Cable modems offer Internet access at speeds up to 100 times faster than a traditional phone modem. You
can experience speeds of over 1,000 Kbps. Due to network condition such as traffic volume and the speed of
the sites you visit, actual speed may vary. Many network and other factors can affect download speeds.
Q
How many users can one SBG support?
A
A single SBG can support up to 245 users, each assigned a unique IP address, on a class C network.
Q
What is Network Address Translation?
A
NAT is a technique to translate private IP addresses on your LAN to a single IP address assigned by your
cable service provider that is that is visible to outside users on the Internet.
Q
What is IEEE_802.11b?
A
IEEE 802.11b is the IEEE wireless network standard.
Q
What type of firewall is provided on the SBG1000?
A
The SBG1000 provides a stateful-inspection firewall.

ARP
Address Resolution Protocol broadcasts a datagram to obtain a response containing a MAC address
corresponding to the host IP address. When it is first connected to the network, a client sends an ARP
message. The SBG1000 responds with a message containing its MAC address. Subsequently, data
sent by the computer uses the SBG1000 MAC address as its destination.
ASCII
The American Standard Code for Information Interchange refers to alphanumeric data for processing
and communication compatibility among various devices; normally used for asynchronous
transmission.
asynchronous
timing
The SBG1000 uses synchronous timing for upstream data transmissions. The CMTS broadcasts
messages that bandwidth is available. The SBG1000 reserves data bytes requiring x-number of
mini-slots. The CMTS replies that it can receive data at a specified time (synchronized). At the
specified time, the SBG transmits the x-number of data bytes.
attenuation
The difference between transmitted and received power resulting from loss through equipment,
transmission lines, or other devices; usually expressed in decibels.
authentication
A process where the CMTS verifies that access is authorized, using a password, trusted IP address,
or serial number.
authorization
Part of the process between a CMTS and the cable modem or gateway to enable Baseline Privacy.
auto-MDIX
Automatic medium-dependent interface crossover detects and corrects cabling errors by automatically
reversing the send and receive pins on any port. It enables the use of straight-through wiring between

B
bandwidth
The transmission capacity of a medium in terms of a range of frequencies. Greater bandwidth
indicates the ability to transmit more data over a given period of time.
Baseline
Privacy
An optional feature that encrypts data between the CMTS and the cable modem or gateway.
Protection of service is provided by ensuring that a cable modem or gateway, uniquely identified by its
MAC address, can only obtain keys for services it is authorized to access.
baud
The analog signaling rate. For complex modulation modes, the digital bit rate is encoded in multiple
bits per baud, for example, 64 QAM encodes 6 bits per baud and 16 QAM encodes 4 bits per baud.
BCP
Binary Communication Protocol
BER
The bit error rate is the ratio of the number of erroneous bits or characters received from some fixed
number of bits transmitted.
binary
A numbering system that uses two digits, 0 and 1.
bit rate
The number of bits (digital 0s and 1s) transmitted per second in a communications channel. It is
usually measured in bits per second bps.
BPKM
Baseline Protocol Key Management encrypts data flows between a cable modem or gateway and the
CMTS. The encryption occurs after the cable modem or gateway registers to ensure data privacy
across the RF network.
bps
bits per second
bridge
An OSI layer 2 networking device that connects two LANs using similar protocols. It filters frames
based on the MAC address to reduce the amount of traffic. A bridge can be placed between two
groups of hosts that communicate a lot together, but not so much with the hosts in the other group.
The bridge examines the destination of each packet to determine whether to transmit it to the other
side. See also switch.
broadband
High bandwidth network technology that multiplexes multiple, independent carriers to carry voice,
video, data, and other interactive services over a single cable. A communications medium that can
transmit a relatively large amount of data in a given time period. A frequently used synonym for cable
TV that can describe any technology capable of delivering multiple channels and services.
broadcast
Simultaneous transmission to multiple network devices; a protocol mechanism supporting group and
universal addressing. See also multicast and unicast.

D
datagram
In RFC 1594, a datagram is defined as “a self-contained, independent entity of data carrying sufficient
information to be routed from the source to the destination computer without reliance on earlier
exchanges between this source and destination computer and the transporting network.” For the most
part, it has been replaced by the term packet.
default route
The route by which packets are forwarded when other routes in the routing table do not apply.
dB
decibel
dBc
Signal level expressed in dB relative to the unmodulated carrier level desired.
DBm
A unit of measurement referenced to one milliwatt across specified impedance. 0dBm = 1 milliwatt
across 75 ohms.

when 1 mV is across 75 ohms.
demodulation
An operation to restore a previously modulated wave and separate the multiple signals that were
combined and modulated on a subcarrier.
DHCP
A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol server dynamically assigns IP addresses to client hosts on an
IP network. DHCP eliminates the need to manually assign static IP addresses by “leasing” an
IP address and subnet mask to each client. It enables the automatic reuse of unused IP addresses:
The SBG is simultaneously a DHCP client and a DHCP server.
• A DHCP server at the cable system headend assigns a public IP address to the SBG1000 and
optionally to clients on the SBG LAN.
• The SBG contains a built-in DHCP server that assigns private IP addresses to clients.
distortion

the input waveform.
diversity
antennas
Two identical antennas located a small distance apart to reduce multipath distortion and improve
wireless reception. Properly placed diversity antennas improve SBG wireless reception.
DNS
The Domain Name System is the Internet system for converting domain names to IP addresses. A
DNS server contains a table matching domain names such as Internetname.com to IP addresses
such as 192.169.9.1. When you access the world-wide web, a DNS server translates the URL
displayed on the browser to the destination website IP address. The DNS lookup table is a distributed
Internet database; no one DNS server lists all domain name to IP address matches.
DOCSIS
The CableLabs Data-Over-Cable Service Interface Specification defines interface standards for cable
modems, gateways, and supporting equipment to deliver data between an HFC network and a
computer systems or television sets. To emphasize its use as a cable modem standard, DOCSIS is
now called CableLabs Certified Cable Modems. Euro-DOCSIS is DOCSIS adapted for use in Europe.
domain name
A unique name, such as motorola.com, that maps to an IP address. Domain names are typically much
easier to remember than are IP addresses.
dotted-decimal
format
Method of representing an IP address or subnet mask using four decimal numbers called octets. Each
octet represents eight bits.
In a class C IP address, the octets are “network.network.network.host.” The first three octets together
represent the network address and the final octet is the host address. In the SBG LAN default
configuration, 192.168.100 represents the network address. In the final octet, the host address can be
from 2 to 254.
download
To copy a file from one computer to another. You can use the Internet to download files from a server
to a computer. A DOCSIS or Euro-DOCSIS cable modem or gateway downloads its configuration file
from a TFTP server during start-up.

IP address
A unique 32-bit value that identifies each host on a TCP/IP network. TCP/IP networks route messages
based on the destination IP address. An IP address has two parts:
• The network address is assigned by IANA.
• The SBG network administrator assigns a host address to each host connected to the SBG1000,
automatically using its DHCP server or as a static IP address.
For a class C network, the first 24 bits are the network address and the final 8 bits are the host
address; in dotted-decimal format it appears “network.network.network.host.”

LAC
An L2TP access concentrator is a device to which the client directly connects through which PPP
frames are tunneled to the LNS. The LAC need only implement the media over which L2TP operates
to transmit traffic to one or more LNSs. The LAC may tunnel any protocol carried within PPP. The LAC
initiates incoming calls and receives outgoing calls. A LAC is analogous to an L2F NAS.

handles the server side of the L2TP protocol. L2TP relies only on the single media over which L2TP
tunnels arrive. The LNS can have a single LAN or WAN interface but can terminate calls arriving at
any of the LACs full range of PPP interfaces (asynchronous, synchronous, ISDN, V.120, etc.). The
LNS initiates outgoing calls and receives incoming calls. An LNS is analogous to a home gateway in
L2F technology.

data in one signaling element. QAM achieves faster data transfer than amplitude or phase modulation
alone, but the signal is more prone to errors caused by noise. QAM requires a transmission circuit with
a higher CNR than alternate modulation formats such as QPSK. Two types of QAM are:
• 16 QAM encodes four bits per symbol as one of 16 possible amplitude and phase combinations.
• 64 QAM encodes six bits per symbol as one of 64 possible amplitude and phase combinations.
QPSK
Quadrature Phase Shift Key (QPSK) modulation sends two bits of information per symbol period with
one symbol 90 degrees out of phase with other symbols. The four constellation points represented by
the coordinates (0,0 - 0,1 - 1,0 - 1,1) represent the four possible combinations.

A specified range of frequencies used for transmission of electromagnetic signals.
spectrum
allocation
An allocation of portions of the available electromagnetic spectrum for specific services, such as AM,
FM, or personal communications.
splitter
A device that divides the signal from an input cable between two or more cables.
stateful
inspection
A type of firewall that tracks each connection traversing all firewall interfaces to ensure validity. In
addition to examining the source and destination in the packet header based on static rules, a stateful
inspection firewall:
• Examines packet headers on context established by previous packets that traversed the firewall
• Monitors the connection state and saves it in a table
• Closes ports until a connection to a specific port is requested
• May examine the packet contents up through the application layer to determine more than just the
source and destination
A stateful-inspection firewall is more advanced than a static filter firewall.
static filter
A type of firewall that examines the source and destination in the packet header based on
administrator-defined rules only.
static IP
address
An IP address that is permanently assigned to a host. Normally, a static IP address must be assigned
manually. The opposite of dynamic IP address.
static route
A manually-defined route.
station
IEEE 802.11b term for wireless client.
subscriber
A home or office user who accesses television, data, or other services from a cable service provider.
subnet mask
A bit mask that is logically ANDed with the destination IP address of a packet to determine the network
address. A router routes packets using the network address.
subnetwork
A part of a network; commonly abbreviated “subnet.” When subnetting is used, the host portion of the
IP address is divided into a subnet and host number. Hosts and routers use the subnet mask to
identify the bits used for the network and subnet number.
switch
On an Ethernet network, a switch filters frames based on the MAC address, in a manner similar to a
bridge. A switch is more advanced because it can connect more than two segments.

symbol rate
Also known as baud rate, is a measure of the number of times per second a signal in a
communications channel varies, or makes a transition between states (states being frequencies,
voltage levels or phase angles). Usually measured in symbols per second (sps).
SYSLOG
A a de-facto UNIX standard for logging system events.

Tagged Binary Communication Protocol
TCP
Transmission Control Protocol on OSI transport layer four, provides reliable transport over the network
for data transmitted using IP (network layer three). It is an end-to-end protocol defining rules and
procedures for data exchange between hosts on top of connectionless IP. TCP uses a timer to track
outstanding packets, checks error in incoming packets, and retransmits packets if requested.
TCP/IP
The Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol suite provides standards and rules for data
communication between networks on the Internet. It is the worldwide internetworking standard and the
basic communications protocol of the Internet.
TFTP
Trivial File Transfer Protocol is a very simple protocol used to transfer files.
transparent
bridging
A method to enable all hosts on the wired Ethernet LAN, IEEE 802.11b wireless LAN, HPNA LAN, and
USB connection to communicate as if they were all connected to the same physical network.
transport layer
Layer of the OSI concerned with protocols for error recognition and recovery. This layer also regulates
information flow.
trunk
Electronic path over which date is transmitted.
TTL
The time to live is the number of routers (or hops) a packet can traverse before being discarded. When
a router processes an packet, it decreases the TTL by 1. When the TTL reaches zero, the packet is
discarded.
tunnel
To place packets inside other packets to send over a network. The protocol of the enclosing packet is
understood by each endpoint, or tunnel interface, where the packet enters and exits the network.
VPNs rely on tunneling to create a secure network.
Tunneling requires the following protocol types:
• A carrier protocol, such as TCP, used by the network that the data travels over
• An encapsulating protocol, such as IPSec, L2F, L2TP, or PPTP, that is wrapped around the original
data
• A passenger protocol, such as IP, for the original data
two-way
A cable system that can transmit signals in both directions to and from the headend and the
subscriber.

U-Z
UDP
User Datagram Protocol
unicast
A point-to-point data transmission sent from one sender to one receiver. This the normal way you
access websites. See also broadcast and multicast.
upstream
In a cable data network, upstream describes the direction of data sent from the subscriber computer
through the cable modem to the CMTS and the Internet.
USB
Universal Serial Bus is a computer interface for add-on devices such as printers, scanners, mice,
modems, or keyboards. USB supports data transfer rates of 12 Mbps and plug-and-play installation.
You can connect up to 127 devices to a single USB port.
UTP
unshielded twisted pair (wire)
VLAN
A virtual local area network is group of devices on different LAN segments that are logically configured
to communicate as if they are connected to the same wire.
VoIP
Voice over Internet Protocol is a method to exchange voice, fax, and other information over the
Internet. Voice and fax have traditionally been carried over traditional telephone lines of the PSTN
using a dedicated circuit for each line. VoIP enables calls to travel as discrete data packets on shared
lines. VoIP is an important part of the convergence of computers, telephones, and television into a
single integrated information network.
VPN
A virtual private network is a private network that uses “virtual” connections (tunnels) routed over a
public network (usually the Internet) to provide a secure and fast connection; usually to users working
remotely at home or in small branch offices. A VPN connection provides security and performance
similar to a dedicated link (for example, a leased line), but at much lower cost.
WAN
A wide-area network provides a connection over a large geographic area, such as a country or the
whole world. The bandwidth depends on need and cost, but is usually much lower than for a LAN.
WAP
Wireless access point or Wireless Access Protocol. See also access point.
WECA
The Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance is a trade organization that works to ensure that all
wireless IEEE 802.11b Wi-Fi devices — computer cards, laptops, air routers, PDAs, etc — can
communicate with each other.
WEP
Wired Equivalent Privacy encryption protects the privacy of data transmitted over a wireless LAN.
WEP uses keys to encrypt and decrypt transmitted data. The access point must authenticate a client
before it can transfer data to another client. WEP is part of IEEE 802.11b.
Wi-Fi
Wireless fidelity (pronounced y-phi) brand name applied to products supporting IEEE 802.11b.
