Wireless Channel
To transmit and receive data, the Residential Gateway-I uses a frequency
channel.
If neighboring wireless networks are using the same channel, it is advisable
to have your Residential Gateway-I network using a different one.
Encryption Key
Communication within your network is only possible to wireless computers
using the same Encryption Key.
This is what the Residential Gateway-I uses to enable Data Security on your
wireless network.
The default value of the Encryption Key equals the 5 last (most right)
characters of the Network Name. To prevent any access to your network
without permission, it is strongly advised to change the default encryption
key value.

In open environments with no physical obstructions between the antennas,
the device automatically selects the best data rate for the current radio
connection.
NOTE:
The range values provide a rule of thumb and may vary according to
the actual radio conditions at the location where the product is
installed. The range of your wireless devices can be affected when:
- Antennas are placed near metal surfaces and solid high-density
materials.
- The radio signal is absorbed by obstacles or objects. E.g. in areas
with floor to ceiling walls, the range can be decreased down to 15%
on its maximum value.

Regulatory Information
Wireless communication is often subject to local radio regulations. Although
wireless networking products have been designed for operation in the
license-free 2.4 GHz band, local radio regulations may impose a number of
limitations to the use of wireless communication equipment.
NOTE:
Refer to the flyer “Information to the User” for more regulatory
information that may apply in your country.
