Information on LCD monitor
High-quality TFT monitors are installed in notebooks from Fujitsu Siemens Computers GmbH. The
specification of the monitor resolution indicates how many pixels can be displayed. For example,
"XGA" stands for 1024 x 768 pixels. Each pixel consists of three so-called subpixels of the colours
red, green and blue. As a result, an XGA monitor consists of 1024 x 768 x 3 = 2,359,296 subpixels.
The standard of production techniques today cannot guarantee an absolutely fault-free monitor. A
few isolated constant lit or unlit pixels may be present. To ensure the highest possible quality,
Fujitsu Siemens Computers uses only monitors that at least comply with the standard
DIN ISO 13406-2 (Class II).
TFT monitors are operated with background lighting. The luminosity of the background lighting can
decrease during the period of use of the notebook. The brightness of your monitor can be set
individually with the brightness control keys of the keyboard.

Battery
The battery is one of the most important components of your notebook. When not plugged into a
mains outlet, the notebook runs on its built-in battery. You can increase the life of the battery by
caring for the battery properly. The average service life of a properly cared-for battery is approx. 500
charging/discharging cycles.
You can extend the battery life by taking advantage of the available energy saving functions.
!
Only use batteries released for your notebook.
Take care not to drop the batteries or otherwise damage their casing (fire risk).
If the rechargeable batteries are defective, they must not be used.
Do not touch the contacts of the batteries.
Never interconnect the positive and negative terminals of a battery.
Used batteries must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations (special waste).
Observe the information on battery storage in the "Important notes" chapter.
Charging the battery
The battery indicator displays the remaining battery charge (see the section "Display field"). When
you switch on the notebook, it takes a few seconds before the battery status is displayed.
You can charge the battery by connecting the notebook to the power adapter (see "Connecting the
power adapter").
The battery can only be charged when the ambient temperature is between 5°C and max. 35°C.
A battery will fully charge in approximately 3 hours in a notebook that is switched off.
Work in the battery mode until an acoustic warning prompts you to recharge and the battery
indicator begins to flash. The notebook battery should not be charged before this point.
If you do not connect the power adapter within approximately five minutes of the signals described
above, your notebook will automatically switch off.

Wireless network as per IEEE 802.11 standard
The wireless LAN network card operates in accordance with the IEEE 802.11 standard. The 2.4
GHz ISM frequency band is used as a communications medium. The wireless networks operating in
accordance with 802.11 can easily be connected to existing Ethernet networks. With the exception
of a few additional parameters, wireless network cards that operate in accordance with 802.11 are
one system with a normal Ethernet card. This means that you can use all protocols via a 802.11
wireless network just as with a cable-connected Ethernet (IP, IPX, NetBIOS,...). The only difference
is that you need not lay cables between the computers. The number of all wireless LAN stations that
can reach each other directly is generally referred to as a cell. The IEEE standard offers two
operating modes - the adhoc mode (peer-to-peer) and the infrastructure mode.
46
A26391-K136-Z120-2-7619
Working with the notebook
Adhoc mode
A wireless LAN in the adhoc mode, also called peer-to-peer mode, consists of a single closed cell.
Adhoc wireless networks result when a workgroup comes together with its systems and would like to
interconnect these for data exchange. Any number of systems can be added to this type of network
and can leave it again.
So that several adhoc wireless networks do not interfere with each other in radio traffic, there is a
unique network name, the SSID (Service Set Identifier). The SSID is used for addressing so that a
data packet can always be assigned to a certain cell.
If you want to join an existing cell, you require the network name (SSID), which you enter in the
settings for the network card. The driver searches for a wireless network with this ID during start-up.
When the driver has found a wireless network, it connects to it and you can communicate with the
systems in this wireless network. If two cells are very close together, the channels of these networks
should be 4 to 5 channels apart.
Infrastructure mode
In the infrastructure mode, a base station, referred to as an AccessPoint, exists in addition to the
mobile stations. In the infrastructure mode the AccessPoint assumes the function of a "guard". In
contrast to the adhoc mode, each system must log on to the AccessPoint before it is allowed to
exchange data in the cell.
Another task of the AccessPoint is the connection of the cells with a cable-connected Ethernet. As
due to the logon requirement, the AccessPoint knows at all times exactly which stations are on the
radio side, it can decide exactly which data must be sent to it and which don't. This process is also
referred to as bridging.
The range of a wireless network can be increased with several AccessPoints. The AccessPoints
have the same SSID for this purpose. When a system enters the wireless net, it searches among
the reachable AccessPoints for the one with the strongest signal and logs on there. Two systems
logged on to different AccessPoints communicate with each other in this way, even when they are
not within direct radio reach. If a system also continuously monitors the radio situation after the
logon, it can detect how the signals from an AccessPoint become weaker and those of another
become stronger, and can then log on to the stronger one without the user noticing. This procedure
is referred to as roaming.
