independent volume control, the hardware
volume control and the software volume
control will interact with each other. It
should be noted that if you set your
software volume to Off, you will override
the external volume control setting.
CONTROLLING THE VOLUME
The volume can be controlled in several different ways:
■
■
Volume can be set from within the Volume Control on
the Taskbar.
Volume can be controlled with the F8 and F9 functions keys. Pressing [F8] repeatedly while holding [Fn]
There are 26 levels through which the
function keys cycle.
■
Volume can be controlled by many volume controls
that are set within individual applications.
■
Certain external audio devices you might connect to

aware that you will erase the settings for the other application. If you wish to go back to launching the other
application from this button, you will need to reconfigure it as described above.
■
■
■
There is no configuration required for media player
operation. The buttons are pre-configured to work like a
normal media player. When the selector switch is in the

selectable options. The first will enable/disable the button
when your LifeBook notebook is in Standby mode, and
the second will enable/disable the button when your LifeBook notebook is in the pseudo-off state. You can enable/
disable either or both of these functions simply by
clicking on the option.
When you have finished with Application Panel utility,
click on OK, and the new settings will take effect. You
can reconfigure your LifeBook Application Panel as
often as you like.
If you choose to use the buttons when the
notebook is in standby, they will function
even if hit accidentally, and will turn on
your notebook even if you are not present
or using the notebook. This could deplete
your battery, and you will need to recharge
it before using the notebook.
22
If you shut down from Windows while
the media player is playing an audio CD,
it will stop.
You cannot go into Suspend Mode or
Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) Mode while
the media player is playing a CD.
The media player will only play when
the system is powered on.
■
If you press the play button and nothing
happens, you either have the Selector
switch locked, there is no audio CD in
the media player drive, you have a CD
other than an audio CD in the drive, or
system is not powered on.
■
Because of the Windows CD auto-insertion function, audio CDs will start playing immediately after they are inserted if
your LifeBook notebook is on. This will
not happen if you are using the media
player in Suspend or Pseudo-off modes.
■
Fast Backward: This is the third button to the right of
the Mode button. Press this button once to skip one
track back.
■
Fast Forward: This is the fourth button to the right of
the Selector switch. Press this button once to skip

LifeBook S2000 Notebook
Power Management
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has many options and
features for conserving battery power. Some of these
features are automatic and need no user intervention,
such as those for the internal modem. However, others
depend on the parameters you set to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness. Internal power management for your notebook
may be controlled from settings made in your operating
system, pre-bundled power management application, or
from settings made in BIOS setup utility.
Besides the options available for conserving battery
power, there are also some things that you can do to
prevent your battery from running down as quickly.
For example, you can create an appropriate power saving
profile, put your notebook into Suspend mode when it
is not performing an operation, and you can limit the
use of high power devices. As with all mobile, battery
powered computers, there is a trade-off between
performance and power savings.
■
Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery
Warning condition.
Your notebook’s system memory typically stores the file
on which you are working, open application information, and any other data required to support operations
in progress. When you resume operation from Suspend
mode, your notebook will return to the point where it left
off. You must use the Power/Suspend/Resume button to
resume operation, and there must be an adequate power
source available, or your notebook will not resume.
■
If you are running your LifeBook notebook on battery power, be aware that
the battery continues to discharge while
your notebook is in Suspend mode,
though not as fast as when fully operational.
■
Disabling the Power/Suspend/Resume
button prevents it from being used to
put your LifeBook notebook in Suspend
or Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) mode.
The resume function of the button cannot be disabled.
■
The Suspend or Hibernation (Save-toDisk) mode should not be used with certain PC Cards. Check your PC Card documentation for more information. When
PC Cards or external devices are in use,
Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) mode cannot
return to the exact state prior to suspension, because all of the peripheral
devices will be re-initialized when the
system restarts.
■
If your LifeBook notebook is actively
accessing information when you enter
the Suspend or Hibernation (Save-toDisk) mode, changes to open files are
not lost. The files are left open and
memory is kept active during Suspend
mode or the memory is transferred to
the internal hard drive during Hibernation mode.
■
The main advantage of using the Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) function is that
power is not required to maintain your
data. This is particularly important if you
will be leaving your LifeBook notebook
in a suspended state for a prolonged
period of time. The drawback of using
Hibernation mode is that it lengthens
the power down and power up
sequences and resets peripheral devices.
POWER/SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON
When your LifeBook notebook is active, the Power/
Suspend/Resume button can be used to manually put
your notebook into Suspend mode. Push the Power/
Suspend/Resume button when your notebook is active,
but not actively accessing anything, and immediately
release the button. You will hear two short beeps and
your system will enter Suspend mode. (See figure 2-4 on
page 6 for location)
If your LifeBook is suspended, pushing the Power/
Suspend/Resume button returns your notebook to active
operation. You can tell whether the system is Suspended
by looking at the Power indicator. (See figure 2-4 on
page 6) If the indicator is visible and not flashing, your
notebook is fully operational. If the indicator is visible
and flashing, your notebook is in Suspend mode. If the
indicator is not visible, the power is off or your notebook
is in Hibernation mode. (See Hibernation Feature)
SUSPEND MODE
Suspend or Standby mode in Windows saves the
contents of your LifeBook notebook’s system memory
during periods of inactivity by maintaining power to
critical parts. This mode will turn off the CPU, the
display, the hard drive, and all of the other internal
components except those necessary to maintain system
memory and allow for restarting. Your notebook can be
put in Suspend mode by:
■
■
■
Pressing the Power/Suspend/Resume button when
your system is turned on.
Selecting Standby from the Windows Shut Down menu.
Timing out from lack of activity.

HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) FEATURE
RESTARTING THE SYSTEM
The Hibernation feature saves the contents of your
LifeBook notebook’s system memory to the hard drive as
a part of the Suspend/Resume mode. You can enable or
disable this feature.
If your system is on and you need to restart it, be sure
that you use the following procedure.
Enable or Disable the Hibernation Feature
The default setting is not enabled. To enable or disable
the Hibernation feature follow these easy steps:
1. From the Start menu, select Settings, and then select
Control Panel.
2. From the Control Panel select Power Options.
3. Select the Hibernation tab. Select the box to enable

2. From the Control Panel select Power Options.
3. Select the Advanced tab. Select Hibernate from the
pull down menus for Power buttons.
1. Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down.
2. Select the Restart option from within the Windows
Shut Down dialog box.
3. Click OK to restart your notebook. Your notebook
will shut down and then reboot.
Turning off your notebook without exiting
Windows, or turning it on within 10
seconds of being shut off may cause an
error when you start the next time.
POWER OFF
Before turning off the power, check that the Hard Drive,
DVD, CD-ROM, CD-RW, PC Card and Floppy Disk
indicators are all Off. (See figure 2-4 on page 6) If you
power-off while accessing a disk or PC Card there is a
risk of data loss. To ensure that the notebook shuts down
without error, use the Windows shutdown procedure.
DISPLAY TIMEOUT
The Video Timeout is one of the power management
parameters. This feature saves power by turning off the
display if there is no keyboard or pointer activity for the
user selected timeout period. Any keyboard or pointer
activity will cause the display to restart automatically.
This feature is independent of the Power/Suspend/
Resume button and can be enabled and disabled in
Windows and BIOS setup utility. (See BIOS Setup Utility
on page 29 for more information)
HARD DISK TIMEOUT
The Hard Disk Timeout is another one of the power
management parameters. This feature saves power by
turning off the hard drive if there is no hard drive
activity for the user selected timeout period. Any
attempt to access the hard drive will cause it to restart
automatically. This feature is independent of the Power/
Suspend/Resume button and can be enabled and
disabled in Windows and BIOS setup utility. (See BIOS
Setup Utility on page 29 for more information)
Be sure to close all files, exit all
applications, and shut down your
operating system prior to turning off the
power. If files are open when you turn the
power off, you will lose any changes that
have not been saved, and may cause disk
errors.
Using the correct procedure to shut down from Windows
allows your notebook to complete its operations and turn
off power in the proper sequence to avoid errors. The
proper sequence is:
1. Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down or
Turn Off Computer.
2. Select the Shut Down option from within the
Windows Shut Down dialog box.
3. Click OK to shut down your notebook.
If you are going to store your notebook for a month or
more see Care and Maintenance Section.
WINDOWS POWER MANAGEMENT
Power Management
The Power Management icon located in the Windows
Control Panel allows you to configure some power
management settings. For example, you can use Power
Management to set the timeout values for turning off the
display and hard disks whether you are running the
notebook on battery power or one of the adapters. The
settings may also be changed in the BIOS. (See BIOS

User-Installable Features
Lithium ion Battery
Your LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion battery that
provides power for operating your notebook when no
external power source is available. The battery is durable
and long lasting, but should not be exposed to extreme
temperatures, high voltages, chemicals or other hazards.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become
shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
■
■
When used at temperatures that exceeds a low of 5°C
or a high of 35°C. Extreme temperatures not only
reduce charging efficiency, but can also cause battery
deterioration. The Charging icon on the Status Indicator panel will flash when you try to charge a battery
that is outside its operating temperature range.
(See Battery Indicators on page 13 for more information)
When using a high current device such as a modem,
Dual-Layer Multi-Format DVD Writer, DVD/CD-RW
combo drive, or the hard drive, using the AC adapter
will conserve your battery life.
Do not leave a faulty battery in your
LifeBook notebook. It may damage your
AC adapter, optional Auto/Airline adapter,
another battery or your notebook itself. It
may also prevent operation of your
notebook by draining all available current
into the bad battery.
■
■
Actual battery life will vary based on
screen brightness, applications, features, power management settings, battery condition and other customer
preferences. Dual-Layer Multi-Format
DVD Writer, DVD/CD-RW drive combo
drive, or hard drive usage may also have
a significant impact on battery life. The
battery charging capacity is reduced as
the battery ages. If your battery is running low quickly, you should replace it
with a new one.
Under federal, state, or local law it may
be illegal to dispose of batteries by putting them in the trash. Please take care
of our environment and dispose of batteries properly. Check with your local
government authority for details regarding recycling or disposing of old batteries. If you cannot find this information
elsewhere, contact your support representative at 1-800-8FUJITSU (1-800838-5487)
RECHARGING THE BATTERIES
If you want to know the condition of the primary
Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Level indicator
located on the Status Indicator panel. The indicator
changes as the battery level changes.
The Lithium ion battery is recharged internally using
the AC adapter or Auto/Airline adapter. To recharge the
battery make sure the battery that needs to be charged
is installed in your LifeBook notebook and connect the
AC or Auto/Airline adapter.
Make sure that the Battery Charging
indicator and the percentage charge is
shown inside the Battery Level icon on the
Status Indicator Panel.
There is no memory effect on the Lithium ion battery
therefore you do not need to discharge the battery
completely before recharging. The charge times will be
significantly longer if your notebook is in use while the
battery is charging. If you want to charge the battery
more quickly, put your notebook into Suspend mode,
or turn it off while the adapter is charging the battery.
(See Power Management on page 32 for more information
on Suspend mode and shutdown procedure)
Using heavy current devices such as Modem
or frequent DVD/CD-RW/CD-ROM
accesses may prevent charging completely.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, a low battery notification message will appear. If you do not respond to the
low battery message, the batteries will continue to
discharge until they are too low to operate. When this
happens, your notebook will go into Suspend mode.
There is no guarantee that your data will be saved once
the notebook reaches this point.
■
Once the low battery notification message appears, you need to save all your
active data and put your LifeBook notebook into Suspend mode until you can
provide a new power source. You should
provide a charged battery, an AC power
adapter, or Auto/Airline adapter as soon
as possible.
■
When you are in Suspend mode there
must always be at least one power
source active. If you remove all power
sources while your LifeBook notebook is
in Suspend mode, any data that has not
been saved to the hard drive will be lost.

Dead Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status indicator just like the normal Suspend mode. Once your
notebook goes into Dead Battery Suspend mode you
will be unable to resume operation until you provide
a source of power either from an adapter, or a charged
battery. Once you have provided power, you will need to
press the Power/Suspend/Resume button to resume
operation. In the Dead Battery Suspend mode, your data
can be maintained for some time, but if a power source
is not provided promptly, the Power indicator will stop
flashing and go out, meaning that you have lost the data
that was not stored. Once you provide power, you can
continue to use your notebook while an adapter is
charging the battery.
Shorted Batteries
The Status Indicator panel uses a symbol inside the
battery outline of the Battery Level indicator to display
the operating level available in that battery. (See figure 210 on page 13) If this display shows a Shorted Battery, it
means that the battery is damaged and must be replaced
so it does not damage any other parts of your notebook.
1. Plug an AC Adapter into the system and connect it

system configuration you have selected.
■
DVD-R and DVD-RW discs hold up to 4.7 GB of data. A
DVD-R disc can only be written to once; DVD-RW discs
can be written to over and over. DVD-R and DVD-RW
discs can be played on most standard DVD players.
Dual-layer DVD+R discs hold up to 8.5 GB of data on a
single side.
CD-R and CD-RW discs hold up to 700 MB of data. A
CD-R disc can only be written to once; CD-RW discs
can be written to over and over.
Depending upon the configuration of your notebook,
you may have one of the following optical drives:
■
■
DVD/CD-RW combo: A DVD/CD-RW combo drive
allows you to access movie, software, data, or audio
DVD/CDs, and to write data onto recordable CD-R
and CD-RW discs.
Modular Dual-Layer Multi-Format DVD Writer: This
allows you to access movies, software, and audio
DVD/CDs as well as to write to CD-R, CD-RW, DVDR, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, Dual-Layer

web site at: http://www.computers.us
.fujitsu.com/support for current
updated drivers.
All LifeBook DVD players are set to play
DVD titles with region code number 1
which is specified for the North American market. The region number is a
regional restriction code defined by the
DVD Forum acting on Hollywood
requirements. Different region codes
are recorded on video DVD titles for
publication in different areas of the
world. If the regional code of the DVD
player does not match the codes on the
titles, then playback is impossible.
You can change the region code on the
DVD player using the Properties menu
of the DVD software. Note, however,
that you can only change the region
code up to four times. After the fourth
change, the last code entered becomes
permanent, and cannot be changed.

drive.
3. Place the media into the tray, label side up, with the
hole in the center of the disc. Snap the disc onto the
raised circle in the center of the tray.
4. Gently push the holder tray back in until you hear a
click. (Figure 4-6)

Dolby Headphone.
USING OPTICAL DRIVE ON BATTERY POWER
Since optical drives consume a lot of power, your overall
battery life will be significantly shorter when operating
the drive continuously (such as watching a DVD movie)
than during standard operation. Many movie run-times
are longer than your LifeBook notebook can support on a
single charged battery. If you are watching a DVD movie
on battery power you may need to swap in an additional,
charged battery or attach AC power during the movie to
view it in its entirety.
An additional fully-charged battery is
recommended if you will be watching
DVD movies on battery power. If you
don’t have an additional battery, you may
purchase one either online at
http://www.computers.us.fujitsu.com or
by calling 1-877-372-3473.
To Watch a Movie on Battery Power:
1. Have an additional full-charged battery or your AC
adapter ready for use.
2. Start watching your DVD movie.
3. When the low battery warning occurs, immediately
stop the movie and exit the media player.
42
If you do not stop the optical drive quickly
and the LifeBook notebook attempts to
auto-suspend (critical battery low state)
the notebook will shut down improperly. If
this occurs, you will need to perform a
hard reset and follow any instructions
presented before the system will reboot.
4. Power down your LifeBook notebook and replace
the discharged battery with an additional fullycharged battery. If you do not have an additional
battery, you should attach AC power as soon as you
see the low battery warning.
5. Resume your notebook operation by pressing the
Suspend button again. This is not required if you
attached AC power without entering suspend mode.
6. Restart your optical drive, locate and skip to the
chapter of the movie you were last watching.
7. Continue watching your DVD movie.
Some shorter DVD movies may not require
you to swap batteries or attach AC power
to complete them; however, it is best to be
prepared since actual battery life while
operating the media player cannot be
guaranteed.

RESTORING PRE-INSTALLED SOFTWARE
The Drivers and Applications Restore (DAR) CD
contains sets of device drivers and Fujitsu utilities (in
specific directories) that are unique to your computer
configuration for use as documented below.
In order to install applications and/or
drivers from the DAR CD, your system
requires a built-in DVD/CD drive or you will
need to connect an external CD drive to
your system.
If you have access to the internet, visit the
Fujitsu Support web site at http://
www.computers.us.fujitsu.com/support to
check for the most current information,
drivers and hints on how to perform
recovery and system updates.
Re-Installing Individual Drivers and Applications
The Drivers and Applications CD can be used to
selectively re-install drivers and/or applications that may
have been un-installed or corrupted.
There may be certain free third-party
applications pre-installed on your system
that are not on the DAR CD. The latest
versions of the applications can be
downloaded from the third-party’s website.
To re-install drivers and/or applications:
1. Boot up the system and insert the DAR CD after
Windows has started. A Fujitsu Installer screen is
displayed after the CD is inserted.
2. After reading the License Agreement, click [I agree].
3. A window will appear containing a list of applications, drivers, and utilities that you can install from
the Drivers and Applications CD.
The components listed are color-coded in
terms of their install status. Blue indicates
that the component can be installed. Green
indicates that the component needs to be
installed separately. Grey indicates a
component that is already installed; grey
items can be reinstalled, but prior to

RESTORING THE FACTORY IMAGE
The Restore Disc that came with your system contains
two utilities:
■
■
The Recovery utility allows you to restore the original
contents of the C: drive.
The Hard Disk Data Delete utility on this disc is used
to delete all data on your hard disk and prevent it from
being reused. Do not use the Hard Disk Data Delete
utility unless you are absolutely certain that you want
to erase your entire hard disk, including all partitions.
• The use of this disc requires that you
have a device capable of reading DVDs
attached to your system. If you do not
have a built-in DVD player, you will need
to attach an external player. For more
information on available external devices,
visit our Web site at:
http://www.computers.us.fujitsu.com.
• This disc can only be used with the
system with which it was purchased.
BOOT Priority Change
Before restoring an image, you must first verify that your
system is set up to boot from the DVD drive. To verify/
change the boot-up priority (rather than booting-up
from the hard drive or an external floppy disk drive),
perform the following steps:
1. Start your system and press the [F2] key when the
Fujitsu logo appears. You will enter the BIOS Setup
Utility.
2. Using the arrow keys, go to the Boot menu.
3. Arrow down to the Boot Device Priority submenu.
Press [Enter].
4. If “Optical Media Drive” or “CD-ROM Drive” is not
at the top of the list, arrow down to the drive in the
list, and press the space bar (or the + key) to move it
to the top of the list. (The system attempts to boot
from the devices in the order in which they are
listed.). Note that the BIOS for some systems will
indicate “CD-ROM Drive”, even when a DVD drive
is connected.
5. If you have an external DVD drive connected,
proceed to the next step; otherwise, proceed to
step 7.

Mini-PCI device (referred to as "WLAN device" in the
rest of the manual). Before using the WLAN device, read
this manual carefully to ensure it's correct operation.
Keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
Wireless LAN Devices Covered by this Document
This document is applicable to systems containing an
Atheros SuperAG WLL4070 (IEEE 802.11a+b/g) wireless network card
Characteristics of the WLAN Device
■ The WLAN device is a Mini-PCI card attached to the
mainboard of the mobile computer.
■
It operates in the 2.4GHz Industrial, Scientific, and
Medical (ISM) RF band and the lower, middle, and
upper bands of the 5GHz Unlicensed National Information Infrastructure (UNII) bands.
■
The Atheros SuperAG WLAN is capable of three operating modes, IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b and
IEEE802.11g, wireless LAN standards governed by the
IEEE (Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers).
■
Encoding of data is modulated using Direct Sequence
Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and Complementary Code
Keying (CCK) when the WLAN device is operating in
IEEE 802.11b mode and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) when operating in
IEEE802.11a or IEEE802.11g mode.
■
The WLAN device is Wi-Fi certified and operates at
the maximum data transfer rate of 54 Mbps in
Figure A-1. Ad Hoc Mode Network
90
IEEE802.11a or IEEE802.11g mode and 11 Mbps in
IEEE802.11b mode.
■
The maximum communication range indoors is
approximately 80 feet (25 meters). However, that
range will increase or decrease depending on factors
such as number of walls, reflective material, or interference from external RF sources.
■
The WLAN device supports the following encryption
methods - WEP, TKIP, CKIP, and AES encryption.
WIRELESS LAN MODES USING THIS DEVICE
Ad Hoc Mode
(See Figure A-1)
"Ad Hoc Mode" refers to a wireless network architecture
where wireless network connectivity between multiple
computers is established without a central wireless
network device, typically known as Access Point(s).
Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices in
a peer-to-peer fashion. That is why Ad Hoc networks are
also known as peer-to-peer networks. Ad Hoc networks
are an easy and inexpensive method for establishing
network connectivity between multiple computers.
Ad Hoc mode requires that the SSID (service set identifier), network authentication, and encryption key
settings are identically configured on all computers in
the Ad Hoc network.
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode
(See Figure A-2)
Infrastructure mode refers to a wireless network architecture in which devices communicate with wireless or
wired network devices by communicating through an
Access Point. In infrastructure mode, wireless devices

WLAN devices in IEEE802.11b/g modes. Symptoms of
interference include reduced throughput, intermittent
disconnects, and large amounts of frame errors. It is
HIGHLY recommended that these interfering devices
be powered off to ensure the proper operation of the
WLAN device.
can communicate with each other or with a wired
network. Corporate wireless networks operate in infrastructure mode because they require access to the wired
LAN in order to access computers, devices, and services
such as file servers, printers, and databases.
How to Handle This Device
The WLAN device comes pre-installed in your mobile
computer. Under normal circumstances, it should not be
necessary for you to remove or re-install it. The Operating System that your mobile computer comes with has
been pre-configured to support the WLAN device.
WIRELESS NETWORK CONSIDERATIONS
■
■
The Atheros WLAN device supports IEEE802.11a/b/g
and operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band and the 5 GHz
UNII bands.
The maximum range of the WLAN device indoors is
typically 80 feet (25 meters). Please note that the maximum range you achieve may be shorter or longer than
80 feet, depending on factors such as access point
transmit power, number and density of obstructions,
or external RF interference.
■
Microwave ovens will interfere with the operation of
WLAN device as microwave ovens operate in the same
2.4GHz frequency range that IEEE802.11b/g devices
operate in. Interference by microwaves does not occur
with IEEE802.11a radio which operates in the 5 GHz
RF band.
■
Wireless devices that transmit in the 2.4GHz frequency range may interfere with the operation of
DEACTIVATING THE WLAN DEVICE
Deactivation of the WLAN device may be desired in
certain circumstances (to extend battery life) or where
certain environments require it (i.e. hospitals, clinics,
airplanes, etc.). Fujitsu mobile computers employ two
methods with which to deactivate the WLAN device:
■
Using the Wireless On/Off Switch, or,
■

Possible Solution
Ad hoc connection: verify that the network names (SSID’s) and network
keys (WEP) of all computers to be connected have been configured
correctly. SSID’s and WEP key values must be identical on each machine.
Access Point (Infrastructure) connection: set the network name (SSID)
and network key to the same values as those of the access point.
Set the Network Authentication value identically to that of the Access
Point. Please consult your network administrator for this value, if
necessary.

Wireless LAN Glossary
GLOSSARY
Ad Hoc Mode
Ad Hoc Mode refers to a wireless network architecture
where wireless network connectivity between multiple
computers is established without a central wireless
network device, typically known as Access Points.
Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices in
a peer-to-peer fashion. For details, refer to “Ad hoc
connection” on page 90.
Channel
Range of narrow-band frequencies used by the WLAN
device to transmit data. IEEE802.11b/g - 11 channels, 22
MHz wide channels.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
A protocol that provides a means to dynamically allocate
IP addresses to computers on a local area network.
DNS (Domain Name System)
A data query service that provides a mechanism with
which to translate host names into Internet addresses.
IEEE802.11a
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 54 Mbps. 802.11a devices operate in the 5 GHz
lower and middle UNII bands.
IEEE802.11b
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 11 Mbps. 802.11b devices operate in the 2.4 GHz
ISM band.
Access point
Wireless network device used to bridge wireless and
wired network traffic.
IP address
The logical 32-bit host address defined by the Internet
Protocol that uniquely identifies a computer on a
network. The IP address is usually expressed in dotted
decimal notation.
LAN (Local Area Network)
A LAN or Local Area Network is a computer network (or
data communications network) which is confined to a
limited geographical area.
MAC address (Media Access Control Address)
A MAC address (also called an Ethernet address or IEEE
MAC address) is the 48-bit address (typically written as
twelve hexadecimal digits, 0 through 9 and A through F,
or as six hexadecimal numbers separated by periods or
colons, e.g., 0080002012ef, 0:80:0:2:20:ef) which
uniquely identifies a computer that has an Ethernet
interface.
MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit)
The maximum size of data which can be transmitted at
one time in networks including the Internet. In an environment whose maximum size of data is too large to
correctly receive data, normal communications can be
restored by setting the size of MTU to a smaller value.
Network key
Data that is used for encrypting data in data communication. The personal computer uses the same network
key both for data encryption and decryption, therefore,
it is necessary to set the same network key as the other
side of communication.
Network name (SSID: Service Set Identifier)
When a wireless LAN network is configured, grouping is
performed to avoid interference or data theft. This
grouping is performed with “Network name (SSID)”. In
order to improve security, the network key is set
allowing no communication unless “Network name
(SSID)” coincides with the network key.
Open system authentication
Null authentication method specified in the 802.11 standard that performs no authentication checks on a wireless client before allowing it to associate.
PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet)
A method of allowing the authentication protocol
adopted in telephone line connection (PPP) to be used
over an Ethernet.
Protocol
A procedure or rule of delivering data among
computers. Ordered data communication is allowed by
making all conditions required for communication
including the method of data transmission/reception
and actions upon communication errors into procedures.

Shared key authentication
802.11 network authentication method in which the AP
sends the client device a challenge text packet that the
client must then encrypt with the correct WEP key and
return to the AP. If the client has the wrong key or no
key, authentication will fail and the client will not be
allowed to associate with the AP. Shared key authentication is not considered secure, because a hacker who
detects both the clear-text challenge and the same challenge encrypted with a WEP key can decipher the WEP
key.
SSID (Service Set Identifier)
Service Set Identifier, a 32-character unique identifier
attached to the header of packets sent over a WLAN that
acts as a password when a mobile device tries to connect
to the BSS. The SSID differentiates one WLAN from
another, so all access points and all devices attempting to
connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. A
device will not be permitted to join the BSS unless it can
provide the unique SSID. Because the SSID is broadcast
in plain text, it does not supply any security to the
network.
Subnet mask
TCP-IP network is controlled by being divided into
multiple smaller networks (subnets). IP address consists
of the subnet address and the address of each computer.
Subnet mask defines how many bits of IP address
comprise the subnet address. The same value shall be set
among computers communicating with each other.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol)
A standard protocol of the Internet.
Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi, or Wireless Fidelity, is a set of standards for wireless local area networks (WLAN) based on the IEEE
802.11 specifications. Certified products can use the
official Wi-Fi logo, which indicates that the product is
interoperable with any other product also showing that
logo.

IP address information
ABOUT IP ADDRESSES
IP addressing is much more complicated
than can be briefly explained in this
document. You are advised to consult with
your network administrator for additional
information.
If IP address is unknown, set IP address as follows,
or,
If you have an access point (DHCP server) on the
network, set the IP address as follows:
[Obtain an IP address automatically]
A DHCP server is a server that
automatically assigns IP addresses to
computers or other devices in the network.
There is no DHCP server for the AdHoc
network.
If the IP address is already assigned to the computer in
the network, ask the network administrator to check the
IP address to be set for the computer.
If no access point is found in the network:
An IP address is expressed with four values in the range
between 1 and 255.
Set the each computer as follows: The value in parentheses is a subnet mask.
<Example>
Computer A: 192.168.100.2 (255.255.255.0)
Computer B: 192.168.100.3 (255.255.255.0)
