Extended Range: When you enable this function, AP will reduce data rate
with a long distance.
Authentication: Please check next section.
The range of radio frequencies used by IEEE 802.11g wireless devices is
called a “channel”. Channels available depend on your geographical
area. You may have a choice of channels (for your region) so you should
use a different channel than an adjacent AP (access point) to reduce
interference. Interference occurs when radio signals from different access
points overlap causing interference and degrading performance.
Adjacent channels partially overlap however. To avoid interference due to
overlap, your AP should be on a channel at least five channels away from
a channel that an adjacent AP is using. For example, if your region has
11 channels and an adjacent AP is using channel 1, then you need to
select a channel between 6 or 11.

When the access point has buffered broadcast or multicast messages for
associated clients, it sends the next DTIM with a DTIM interval value. Access
point clients hear the beacons and awaken to receive the broadcast and
multicast messages.
SSID Broadcast: While SSID Broadcast is enabled, all wireless clients will be
able to communicate with the access point. For secure purpose, user may
want to disable SSID broadcast to allow only those wireless clients with the
AP SSID to communicate with the access point.
TX Rates: Select one of the wireless communications transfer rates,
measured in megabytes per second, based upon the speed of wireless
adapters connected to the WLAN.
CTS Mode:
ƒ
None: Disable CTS function.
ƒ

always transfer 11b packet.
ƒ
Auto: AP soon detected the wireless environment and decided the
transmission packet, either 11b or 11g.
11g Only Mode: To setting the AP operation mode for 802.11g only or
802.11b/802.11g mix mode.
SuperG Mode: From the drop list, if you like to use Super-GTM to enhance
the speed, there are three options on Super-GTM mode: Super G without
turbo; Super G with Dynamic turbo and Super G with Static turbo. The turbo
mode indicates the combination of two channels to enhance the throughput.
Super G without turbo indicates that it is on Super G mode without the
channel’s combination. Dynamic turbo is able to automatically detect if any
‘Super-GTM based’ product is available. If no, the connection is via ‘normal’
G. Static turbo means it will not go back to ‘normal’ G once it starts.
Antenna transmit power: Adjust the power of the antenna transmission by
selecting from the drop down list for full, half (-3dB), quarter (-6dB), eighth (9dB) and min.

A.4 FAQ
Question
Answer
Question
Answer
Can I run an application from a remote computer over the
wireless network?
This will depend on whether or not the application is designed
to be used over a network. Consult the application’s user
guide to determine if it supports operation over a network.
Can I play computer games with other members of the
wireless network?
Yes, as long as the game supports multiple players over a
LAN (local area network).
Refer to the game’s user guide for more information.
Question
Answer
What is Spread Spectrum?
Spread Spectrum technology is a wideband radio frequency
technique developed by the military for use in reliable, secure,
mission-critical communications systems. It is designed to
trade off bandwidth efficiency for reliability, integrity, and
security. In other words, more bandwidth is consumed than in
the case of narrowband transmission, but the trade-off
produces a signal that is, in effect, louder and thus easier to
detect, provided that the receiver knows the parameters of the
spread-spectrum signal being broadcast. If a receiver is not
tuned to the right frequency, a spread-spectrum signal looks
like background noise. There are two main alternatives, Direct
Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and Frequency Hopping
Spread Spectrum (FHSS).
Question
What is DSSS? What is FHSS? And what are their
differences?
Frequency-Hopping Spread-Spectrum (FHSS) uses a
narrowband carrier that changes frequency in a pattern that is
known to both transmitter and receiver. Properly
synchronized, the net effect is to maintain a single logical
channel. To an unintended receiver, FHSS appears to be
short-duration impulse noise. Direct-Sequence SpreadSpectrum (DSSS) generates a redundant bit pattern for each
bit to be transmitted. This bit pattern is called a chip (or
chipping code). The longer the chip, the greater the probability
that the original data can be recovered. Even if one or more
Answer
A02-WAP-54G
Pag. 41
Wireless 108Mbps Multi-Function Access Point
bits in the chip are damaged during transmission, statistical
techniques embedded in the radio can recover the original
data without the need for retransmission. To an unintended
receiver, DSSS appears as low power wideband noise and is
rejected (ignored) by most narrowband receivers.
Question
Answer
Would the information be intercepted while transmitting
on air?
WLAN features two-fold protection in security. On the
hardware side, as with Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum
technology, it has the inherent security feature of scrambling.
On the software side, WLAN offers the encryption function
(WEP) to enhance security and access control.
Question
Answer
What is WEP?
WEP is Wired Equivalent Privacy, a data privacy mechanism
based on a 64-bit or 128-bit shared key algorithm, as
described in the IEEE 802.11 standard.
Question
Answer
What is infrastructure mode?
When a wireless network is set to infrastructure mode, the
wireless network is configured to communicate with a wired
network through a wireless access point.
Question
Answer
What is roaming?
Roaming is the ability of a portable computer user to
communicate continuously while moving freely throughout an
area greater than that covered by a single access point.
Before using the roaming function, the workstation must make
sure that it is the same channel number with the access point
of dedicated coverage area.
Question
Answer
What is ISM band?
The FCC and their counterparts outside of the U.S. have set
aside bandwidth for unlicensed use in the ISM (Industrial,
Scientific and Medical) band. Spectrum in the vicinity of 2.4
GHz, in particular, is being made available worldwide. This
presents a truly revolutionary opportunity to place convenient
high-speed wireless capabilities in the hands of users around
the globe.

Question
Answer
What is the IEEE 802.11g standard?
Approved in June, 2003 as an IEEE standard for wireless
local area networks (WLANs), 802.11g offers wireless
transmission over relatively short distances at up to 54
megabits per second (Mbps) compared with the 11 megabits
per second of the 802.11b (Wi-Fi) standard. Like 802.11b,
802.11g operates in the 2.4 GHz range and is thus compatible
with it.
