Wireless Terminology
Wireless Standards
802.11, 802.11b and 802.11g all refer to a series of standards which govern a common
method of creating wireless local area networks (WLANs).
802.11b and 11g are the most common WLAN types, with 11g being the later and faster
of the two standards with a maximum transmission rate of 54Mbps.
The NP644 is faster again as it is built around a processor which ‘turbo-charges’
transmission rates up to 108Mbps.
802.11g is ‘backward compatible’ with 802.11b, which means that the two standards are
able to communicate, albeit at the lower 11Mbps rate of the 11b standard.
The NP644 can communicate with both kinds of device at their maximum rate, and with
other ‘turbo-charged’ devices at the much higher rate of 108Mbps.

Wireless Security Terms
The Advanced Features of the NP644 include the ability to select from several types of
Wireless Security.
WEP
WEP stands for Wired Equivalent Privacy. Introduced with
802.11b, WEP uses encryption to protect data confidentiality
by way of pre-shared keys (passwords or pass-phrases) that are
entered at both ends. Superseded by WPA and 802.11i but still in
use.
WPA
WPA stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access - authorizes and
identifies users based on a secret key that changes automatically
at a pre-defined interval. This is called TKIP (Temporal Key
Integrity Protocol) to change the temporal key every 10,000
packets (= unit of data.) Keys can either be pre-shared or
established by a RADIUS Server.
RADIUS
RADIUS is part of 802.11i security; this is a wireless standard
which is only concerned with wireless security standards.
Authentication is based around a secure server with a challengeand-response method of interaction which verifies the identity
of the client wishing to connect to the network. If you wish to
connect to a RADIUS server ask the Network Administrator for
details. RADIUS servers are not usually used as part of home
networks.

APPENDIX A: Glossary
Access Point:
An internetworking device that seamlessly connects wired and
wireless networks.
Ad-Hoc:
An independent wireless LAN network formed by a group of
computers, each with a network adapter.
AP Client:
One of the additional AP operating modes offered by a 54Mbps
Access Point, which allows the Access Point to act as an Ethernetto-Wireless Bridge, thus a LAN or a single computer station can join
a wireless ESS network through it.
ASCII:
American Standard Code for Information Interchange, ASCII, is one
of the two formats that you can use for entering the values for WEP
key. It represents English letters as numbers from 0 to 127.
Authentication Type:
Indication of an authentication algorithm which can be supported by
the Access Point.
Open System: Open System authentication is the simplest of
the available authentication algorithms. Essentially it is a null
authentication algorithm. Any station that requests authentication
with this algorithm may become authenticated if 802.11
Authentication Type at the recipient station is set to Open System
authentication.
NP644 IEEE 802.11g Wireless Network USB Adaptor
YML787 Rev1
27
Shared Key: Shared Key authentication supports authentication of
stations as either a member of those who knows a shared secret
key or a member of those who does not.
Backbone:
The core infrastructure of a network, which transports information
from one central location to another where the information is
unloaded into a local system.
Bandwidth:
The transmission capacity of a device, which is calculated by
how much data the device can transmit in a fixed amount of time
expressed in bits per second (bps).
Beacon:
A beacon is a packet broadcast by the Access Point to keep the
network synchronized. Included in a beacon are information such
as wireless LAN service area, the AP address, the Broadcast
destination addresses, time stamp, Delivery Traffic Indicator Maps,
and the Traffic Indicator Message (TIM).
Bit:
A binary digit, which is either -0 or -1 for value, is the smallest unit
for data.
Bridge:
An internetworking function that incorporates the lowest 2 layers of
the OSI network protocol model.
Browser:
An application program that enables one to read the content and
interact in the World Wide Web or Intranet.
BSS:
BSS stands for “Basic Service Set”. It is an Access Point and all the
LAN PCs that associated with it.
28
YML787 Rev1
NP644 IEEE 802.11g Wireless Network USB Adaptor
Channel:
The bandwidth which wireless Radio operates is divided into
several segments, which we call them “Channels”. AP and the client
stations that it associated work in one of the channels.
CSMA/CA:
In local area networking, this is the CSMA technique that combines
slotted time -division multiplexing with carrier sense multiple access/
collision detection (CSMA/CD) to avoid having collisions occur a
second time. This works best if the time allocated is short compared
to packet length and if the number of situations is small.
CSMA/CD:
Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detection, which is a
LAN access method used in Ethernet. When a device wants to
gain access to the network, it checks to see if the network is quiet
(senses the carrier). If it is not, it waits a random amount of time
before retrying. If the network is quiet and two devices access
the line at exactly the same time, their signals collide. When the
collision is detected, they both back off and wait a random amount
of time before retrying.
DHCP:
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, which is a protocol that lets
network administrators manage and allocate Internet Protocol
(IP) addresses in a network. Every computer has to have an IP
address in order to communicate with each other in a TCP/IP based
infrastructure network. Without DHCP, each computer must be
entered in manually the IP address. DHCP enables the network
administrators to assign the IP from a central location and each
computer receives an IP address upon plugged with the Ethernet
cable everywhere on the network.
NP644 IEEE 802.11g Wireless Network USB Adaptor
YML787 Rev1
29
DSSS:
Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum. 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 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.
Dynamic IP Address:
An IP address that is assigned automatically to a client station in a
TCP/IP network by a DHCP server.
Encryption:
A security method that uses a specific algorithm to alter the data
transmitted, thus prevent others from knowing the information
transmitted.
ESS:
ESS stands for “Extended Service Set”. More than one BSS is
configured to become Extended Service Set. LAN mobile users can
roam between different BSSs in an ESS.
ESSID:
The unique identifier that identifies the ESS. In infrastructure
association, the stations use the same ESSID as AP’s to get
connected.
Ethernet:
A popular local area data communications network, originally
developed by Xerox Corp., that accepts transmission from
computers and terminals. Ethernet operates on a 10/100 Mbps
base transmission rate, using a shielded coaxial cable or over
shielded twisted pair telephone wire.

NP644 IEEE 802.11g Wireless Network USB Adaptor
Fragmentation:
Fragmentation
Threshold:
When transmitting a packet over a network medium, sometimes
the packet is broken into several segments, if the size of packet
exceeds that allowed by the network medium.
The Fragmentation Threshold defines the number of bytes used for
the fragmentation boundary for directed messages. The purpose of
“Fragmentation Threshold” is to increase the transfer reliability thru
cutting a MAC Service Data Unit (MSDU) into several MAC Protocol
Data Units (MPDU) in smaller size. The RF transmission can not
allow to transmit too big frame size due to the heavy interference
caused by the big size of transmission frame. But if the frame size is
too small, it will create the overhead during the transmission.
Gateway:
A device that interconnects networks with different, incompatible
communication protocols.
HEX:
Hexadecimal, HEX, consists of numbers from 0 – 9 and letters from
A – F.
IEEE:
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, which is
the largest technical professional society that promotes the
development and application of electrotechnology and allied
sciences for the benefit of humanity, the advancement of the
profession. The IEEE fosters the development of standards that
often become national and international standards.
Infrastructure:
An infrastructure network is a wireless network or other small
network in which the wireless network devices are made a part of
the network through the Access Point which connects them to the
rest of the network.

31
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 2.4GHz, in particular, is
being made available worldwide.
MAC Address:
Media Access Control Address is a unique hex number assigned
by the manufacturer to any Ethernet networking device, such
as a network adapter, that allows the network to identify it at the
hardware level.
Multicasting:
Sending data to a group of nodes instead of a single destination.
Multiple Bridge:
One of the additional AP operating modes offered by 54Mbps
Access Point, which allows a group of APs that consists of two or
more APs to connect two or more Ethernet networks or Ethernet
enabled clients together. The way that multiple bridge setups is
based on the topology of Ad-Hoc mode.
Node:
A network junction or connection point, typically a computer or
workstation.
Packet:
A unit of data routed between an origin and a destination in a
network.
PLCP:
Physical layer convergence protocol
PPDU:
PLCP protocol data unit
32
YML787 Rev1
NP644 IEEE 802.11g Wireless Network USB Adaptor
Preamble:
The ‘preamble’ is a sequence of bits transmitted at 1Mbps that
synchronises wireless transmission within the network. The Short
Preamble and header may be used to minimize overhead and,
thus, maximize the network data throughput. However, the Short
Preamble is supported only by the IEEE 802.11b (High- Rate)
standard and not by the original IEEE 802.11standard; meaning that
stations using Short-Preamble cannot communicate with stations
implementing the original version of the protocol.
PSDU:
PLCP service data unit
Roaming:
A LAN mobile user moves around an ESS and enjoys a continuous
connection to an Infrastructure network.
RTS:
Request To Send. An RS-232 signal sent from the transmitting
station to the receiving station requesting permission to transmit.
RTS Threshold:
Transmitters contending for the medium may not be aware of each
other. RTS/CTS mechanism can solve this “Hidden Node Problem”.
If the packet size is smaller than the preset RTS Threshold size, the
RTS/CTS mechanism will NOT be enabled.
SSID:
Service Set Identifier, which is a unique name shared among all
clients and nodes in a wireless network. The SSID must be identical
for each clients and nodes in the wireless network.
NP644 IEEE 802.11g Wireless Network USB Adaptor

33
Subnet Mask:
The method used for splitting IP networks into a series of subgroups, or subnets. The mask is a binary pattern that is matched up
with the IP address to turn part of the host ID address field into a
field for subnets.
TCP/IP:
Transmission Control Protocol/ Internet Protocol. The basic
communication language or protocol of the Internet. It can also be
used as a communications protocol in a private network, i.e. intranet
or internet. When you are set up with direct access to the Internet,
your computer is provided with a copy of the TCP/IP program just
as every other computer that you may send messages to or get
information from also has a copy of TCP/IP.
Throughput:
The amount of data transferred successfully from one point to
another in a given period of time.
WEP:
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is an encryption scheme used to
protect wireless data communication. To enable the icon will prevent
other stations without the same WEP key from linking with the AP.
Wireless Bridge:
One of the additional AP operating modes offered by 54mpbs
Access Point, which allows a pair of APs to act as the bridge
that connects two Ethernet networks or Ethernet enabled clients
together.
