Preface
Thank you for purchasing Wireless LAN Adapter. This manual will assist you with the
installation procedure and is valid for Wireless LAN adapters.
Wireless LAN Basics
Wireless LAN (Local Area Networks) systems offer a great number of advantages
over a traditional, wired system. Wireless LANs (WLANs) are more flexible, easier to
setup and manage and often more cost effective than their wired equivalence.
Using radio frequency (RF) technology, WLANs transmit and receive data over the air,
minimizing the need for wired connections. Thus, WLANs combine data connectivity
with user mobility, and, through simplified configuration, enable movable LANs.
With wireless LANs, users can access shared information without looking for a place
to plug in and network managers can set up or augment networks without installing or
moving wires. Wireless LANs offer the following productivity, convenience and cost
advantages over traditional wired networks:
y

Mobility - Wireless LAN systems can provide LAN users with access to real-time
information anywhere in their organization. This mobility supports productivity
and service opportunities not possible with wired networks.
Installation Speed and Simplicity - Installing a wireless LAN system can be fast
and easy and can eliminate the need to pull cable through walls and ceilings.
Installation Flexibility - Wireless technology allows the network to go where
wires cannot go.
Reduced Cost-of-Ownership - While the initial investment required for wireless
LAN hardware might be higher than the cost of wired LAN hardware, overall
installation expenses and life-cycle costs will be significantly lower. Long-term
cost benefits are greatest in dynamic environments requiring frequent moves,
adds, and changes.
Scalability - Wireless LAN systems can be configured in a variety of topologies
to meet the needs of specific applications and installations. Configurations are
easily changed and range from peer-to-peer to full infrastructure networks, also
allow roaming over a broad area.
