points in your wireless network. The name must be
identical for all devices and points attempting to connect
to the same network. User can use pull-down menu to
select from available APs.
Power Save Mode:
• CAM (Constantly Awake Mode): When this mode is
selected, the power supply will be normally provided
even when there is no throughput.
• PSM (Power Saving Mode): When this mode is
selected, this device will stay in power saving mode
even when there is high volume of throughput.
Network Type: There are two types, Infrastructure and
Ad-hoc modes. Under Ad-hoc mode user can also choose
the preamble type, the available preamble type includes
Auto and Long. In addition to that, the channel field will
be available for setup in Ad-hoc mode.
• The Infrastructure is intended for the connection
between wireless network cards and an Access Point.
With the wireless adapter, you can connect wireless
LAN to a wired global network via an Access Point.
• The Ad-hoc lets you set a small wireless workgroup
easily and quickly. Equipped with the wireless
adapter, you can share files and printers between each

implemented to prevent the “Hidden Node” problem. If
the “Hidden Node” problem is an issue, users have to
specify the packet size. The RTS/CTS mechanism will be
activated if the data size exceeds the value you set.
This value should remain at its default setting of 2347.
Should you encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor
modifications of this value are recommended.
Fragment Threshold: User can adjust the Fragment
threshold number by sliding the bar or key in the value
directly. The default value is 2346. The mechanism of
Fragmentation Threshold is used to improve the efficiency
when high traffic flows along in the wireless network. If
your Wireless LAN Adapter often transmits large files in
wireless network, you can enter new Fragment Threshold
value to split the packet. The value can be set from 256
to 2346.
Authentication and Security tab:
Authentication Type: There are several types of
authentication modes including Open, Shared, Leap,
WPA, WPA-PSK, WPA2 and WPA2-PSK.
• Open: If your access point/wireless router is using
"Open” authentication, then the wireless adapter will
- 14 -
need to be set to the same authentication type.
• Shared: Shared key is when both the sender and the
recipient share a secret key.
• LEAP: Light Extensible Authentication Protocol. It is
an EAP authentication type used primarily in Cisco
Aironet WLANs. It encrypts data transmissions using
dynamically generated WEP keys, and supports mutual
authentication (only with CCX mode enabled.)
• WPA/ WPA-PSK/ WPA2/ WPA2-PSK: WPA or
WPA-PSK authentications offer two encryption
methods, TKIP and AES. For WPA-PSK, select the
type of algorithm TKIP or AES and then enter a WPA
Shared Key of 8-64 characters in the WPA Pre-shared
Key field.
Encryption Type: For Open and Shared authentication
mode, the selection of encryption type are None and
WEP. For WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK
authentication mode, the encryption type supports both
TKIP and AES.
WPA Pre-shared Key: This is the shared secret between
AP and STA. For WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK
authentication mode, this field must be filled with
character longer than 8 and less than 64 lengths.
WEP Key: Only valid when using WEP encryption
algorithm. The key must match with the AP’s key. There
are several formats to enter the keys.
• Hexadecimal (128bits): 26 Hex characters (0~9, a~f).
• ASCII (128bits): 13 ASCII characters.
Show Password: Check this box to show the password
you en02tered.
- 15 -
802.1x Setting: When user use radius server to
authenticate client certificate for WPA authentication
mode (WPA authentication do not support EAP MethodMD5-Challenge).
802.1x tab:
EAP Method:
• PEAP: Protect Extensible Authentication Protocol.
PEAP transport securely authentication data by using
tunnelling between PEAP clients and an authentication
server. PEAP can authenticate wireless LAN clients
using only server-side certificates, thus simplifying the
implementation and administration of a secure
wireless LAN.
•
TLS / Smart Card: Transport Layer Security.
Provides for certificate-based and mutual
authentication of the client and the network. It relies
on client-side and server-side certificates to perform
- 16 -
authentication and can be used to dynamically
generate user-based and session-based WEP keys to
secure subsequent communications between the
WLAN client and the access point.
•
TTLS: Tunnelled Transport Layer Security. This
security method provides for certificate-based, mutual
authentication of the client and network through an
encrypted channel. Unlike EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS
requires only server-side certificates.
•
EAP-FAST: Flexible Authentication via Secure
Tunnelling. It was developed by Cisco. Instead of
using a certificate, mutual authentication is achieved
by means of a PAC (Protected Access Credential)
which can be managed dynamically by the
authentication server. The PAC can be provisioned
(distributed one time) to the client either manually or
automatically. Manual provisioning is delivery to the
client via disk or a secured network distribution
method. Automatic provisioning is an in-band, over
the air, distribution. For tunnel authentication, only
support "Generic Token Card" authentication now.
•
MD5-Challenge: Message Digest Challenge.
Challenge is an EAP authentication type that provides
base-level EAP support. It provides for only one-way
authentication - there is no mutual authentication of
wireless client and the network. (Only Open and
Shared authentication mode can use this function.)
Tunnel Authentication:
• Protocol: Tunnel protocol, List information including
EAP-MSCHAP v2, EAP-TLS/ Smart Card, and
Generic Token Card.
•
Tunnel Identity: Identity for tunnel.
- 17 -
•
Tunnel Password: Password for tunnel.
