System Requirements

This section lists the network subscriptions, hardware and software requirements for running the

EDGE PC Card.

Network and Subscription

The network subscription you use in conjunction with your EDGE PC Card depends on the functions and features your network operator can provide. Contact your network operator or service provider to make sure the options you require are available. Make sure that data options are included in your subscription, as these are usually optional services.

Note:

Mobile operators often provide a number of connectivity options via GPRS such as WAP and

Internet. Verify the service you require, such as Internet, email or corporate VPN (Virtual Private

Network) service is available through your mobile operator and enabled on your subscription.

The functionality of the different subscriptions available from networks operators are discussed below:

Circuit Switched Data (CSD)

CSD is the original GSM network data transfer method, used in the past for WAP. Almost all GSM networks have this capability at 9.6 kbps. It is possible for the network to upgrade the speed to 14.4 kbps.

The EDGE PC Card operates at this higher speed where available.

Note:

GC85 does not have CSD connectivity. An upgrade will be available to add this functionality to the GC85, contact your service operator for more details.

General Packet Radio Service (GPRS)

GPRS is a type of network connection which provides “always on” mobility. The connection set up is fast and, once connected, applications may send and receive data whenever required. In today’s

GPRS networks, the EDGE PC Card receives data at speeds up to 53.6 kbps and transmits at speeds up to 26.8 kbps.

When used with Establish GPRS connection at startup, this allows a GPRS session to be

automatically connected when the user logs on, see Windows Log on Using GPRS/EDGE Dial-

up Connection on page 19 for more details.

Minimize when Windows starts

If enabled, the Wireless Manager starts when a user logs on to Windows, it appears as an icon in the task bar only. If an EDGE PC Card is detected, the Wireless Manager runs and connects. If not, the program closes (and runs in the background if permitted).

Allow this program to run in the background

If enabled, the Wireless Manager runs in the background, waiting for a EDGE PC Card to be inserted. When the card is detected, the Wireless Manager automatically opens and begins normal operations.

It releases control of the card, so it may be stopped and removed, and runs in the background.

You can start the program again from the Start menu, double-clicking the system tray icon, or by re-inserting the EDGE PC Card.

You can stop Wireless Manager running in the background by right clicking on the PC screen and selecting Exit.

If you attempt to start Wireless Manager with no EDGE PC Card inserted a warning dialog is displayed, informing you that the EDGE PC Card is not present, and Wireless Manager switches back to background mode.

Hide tray icon when no card inserted

If this option is selected, Wireless Manager runs in background mode, the Wireless Manager icon is not displayed in the system tray. If the card is inserted, the icon reappears and the Wireless

Manager is started.

Windows Log on Using GPRS/EDGE Dial-up Connection

The EDGE PC Card supports the Windows Log on using dial-up connection feature.

To log on to Windows using a dial-up connection the EDGE PC Card must be inserted and the radio enabled before you log on. To enable the radio prior to logon, select Enable radio immediately

when card inserted checkbox in the Radio Power preferences tab, see Radio Power Tab on page 15

for more details.

Important!

Never start your PC in this mode if you are in a location where mobile devices shouldn’t be used, for example, on an aeroplane, in hospital or near a blast site.

Only check this option if you need to log on to a Windows Domain via a wireless dial-up connection.

This will permit the EDGE PC Card to register with the network and establish a connection when the

Windows logon screen is displayed.

Note:

It is not possible to display network status or signal strength during the Windows logon procedure, so you should allow enough time for the EDGE PC Card to find and register with the wireless network prior to attempting to log on.

The dial-up connections available to the Windows Logon must have been created by a user account with Administrator privilege and designated For all users. This must be done using the Windows

Network Connection Wizard, because the Wireless Manager can only create connections for the current user ID.

Normally the Windows Logon using dial-up connection will be using a CSD session to a corporate network, so that the logon credentials can be validated by a Windows Domain Server.

Start Using Wireless Manager 19

There may be special circumstances where a GPRS dial-up connection is required for logon.

To create a GPRS dial-up connection, follow these steps:

1. Create the Windows dial-up connection using the Windows Network Connection Wizard.

For the telephone number, use *99***3#.

2. Set the GPRS context parameters in the EDGE PC Card using the following AT commands.

Type the AT Commands into the Windows Hyperterminal program.

AT+CGDCONT=3,“IP”,“<AccessPointName>”,“”,0,0 where <AccessPointName> is the name of the special GPRS access point for your corporate

GPRS service.

Note:

In this example, we used GPRS Context 3. There are 10 possible contexts supported by the

EDGE PC Card (1..10). Context ID 2 is reserved for use by connections created by the

Wireless Manager. The context definition is stored in nonvolatile memory in the EDGE PC card and only needs to be set up once. Cards could be set up, for example, by the IT Manager using a different laptop.

Refer to the AT Command Manual or contact your service provider for further assistance.

Guidelines for Safe and Efficient Use

Please read this information before using your GC82, GC83 or GC85.

Recommendations

• Always treat your product with care and keep it in a clean and dust-free place.

• Do not expose your product to liquid or moisture or humidity.

• Do not expose your product to extreme high or low temperatures.

• Do not expose your product to open flames or lit tobacco products.

• Do not drop, throw or try to bend your product.

• Do not paint your product.

• Do not use your product near medical equipment without requesting permission.

• Do not use your product when in, or around aircraft, or areas posted “turn off two-way radio”.

• Do not use your product in an area where a potentially explosive atmosphere exists.

• Do not place your product or install wireless equipment in the area above your car’s air bag.

• Do not attempt to disassemble your product. Only Sony Ericsson authorised personnel should perform service.

Antenna

Only use an antenna that has been specifically designed by Sony Ericsson for your EDGE PC Card.

Use of unauthorised or modified antennas could damage your EDGE PC Card and may violate regulations, causing loss of performance and SAR levels above the recommended limits (see below).

Efficient Use

Do not cover the antenna when in use, as this affects call quality and may cause the EDGE PC Card to operate at a higher power level than needed, thus shortening talk and standby times.

Additional Information 47

Radio Frequency (RF) Exposure and SAR

Your PC Card is a low-power radio transmitter and receiver (transceiver). When it is turned on, it emits low levels of radio frequency energy (also known as radio waves or radio frequency fields).

Governments around the world have adopted comprehensive international safety guidelines, developed by scientific organizations, e.g. ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation

Protection) and IEEE (The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc.), through periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. These guidelines establish permitted levels of radio wave exposure for the general population. The levels include a safety margin designed to assure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health, and to account for any variations in measurements.

Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is the unit of measurement for the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a transceiver. The SAR value is determined at the highest certified power level in laboratory conditions, but the actual SAR level of the transceiver while operating can be well below this value. This is because the transceiver is designed to use the minimum power required to reach the network.

Variations in SAR below the radio frequency exposure guidelines do not mean that there are variations in safety. While there may be differences in SAR levels among mobile phones, all Sony Ericsson PC

Cards are designed to meet radio frequency exposure guidelines.

Before a PC Card is available for sale to the public, it must be tested and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the limit established by the government-adopted requirement for safe exposure. The tests are performed in positions and locations as required by the FCC for each model. For body worn operation, this PC Card has been tested and meets FCC RF exposure guidelines for fixed and mobile use when the PC Card is installed in a PCMCIA card slot of a standard Laptop PC with the original antenna.

Sony Ericsson has not measured, and makes no representation about, the body worn SAR levels when the PC Card is used in any portable host equipment or when any changes to the original product has been made.

More information on radio frequency exposure and SAR can be found on: www.sonyericsson.com.

Personal Medical Devices

EDGE PC Cards may affect the operation of cardiac pacemakers and other implanted equipment.

If a minimum distance of 15 cm (6 inches) is kept between the EDGE PC Card and the pacemaker, the risk of interference is limited. If you have any reason to suspect that interference is taking place, immediately turn off your EDGE PC Card. Contact your cardiologist for more information.

For other medical devices, please consult the manufacturer of the device.

Children

DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO PLAY WITH YOUR EDGE PC CARD OR ITS ANTENNA.

THEY COULD HURT THEMSELVES OR OTHERS, OR COULD ACCIDENTALLY DAMAGE

THE EDGE PC CARD OR ANTENNA. YOUR EDGE PC CARD OR ITS ANTENNA MAY

CONTAIN SMALL PARTS THAT COULD BE DETACHED AND CREATE A CHOKING

HAZARD.

Disposing of the Product

Your EDGE PC Card should not be placed in municipal waste. Please check local regulations for disposal of electronic products.

48 Additional Information

Emergency Calls

EDGE PC Cards manufactured by Sony Ericsson do not support voice calls, hence their use for essential communications (e.g. medical emergencies) is not possible.

Inserting and removing the SIM card – precautions against electrostatic discharge (ESD)

Do not touch the SIM card connectors. As a precaution, always make sure that the EDGE PC Card is already in your hand before you insert or remove the SIM card.

Our Warranty

Subject to the conditions of this Limited Warranty, Sony Ericsson warrants this Product to be free from defects in design, material and workmanship at the time of its original purchase by a consumer, and for a subsequent period of one (1) year.

What We Will Do

If, during the warranty period, this Product fails to operate under normal use and service, due to defects in design, materials or workmanship, Sony Ericsson authorised distributors or service partners, in the country/region* where you purchased the Product, will, at their option, either repair or replace the Product in accordance with the terms and conditions stipulated herein.

Sony Ericsson and its service partners reserve the right to charge a handling fee if a returned Product is found not to be under warranty according to the conditions below.

Please note that your personal settings/downloads might be lost when the Product is repaired or replaced.

Conditions

1. The warranty is valid only if the original proof of purchase issued to the original purchaser by an, for this Product, Sony Ericsson authorised dealer, specifying the date of purchase and serial number**, is presented with the Product to be repaired or replaced. Sony Ericsson reserves the right to refuse warranty service if this information has been removed or changed after the original purchase of the Product from the dealer.

2. If Sony Ericsson repairs or replaces the Product, the repaired or replaced Product shall be warranted for the remaining time of the original warranty period or for ninety (90) days from the date of repair, whichever is longer. Repair or replacement may involve the use of functionally equivalent reconditioned units. Replaced parts or components will become the property of

Sony Ericsson.

3. This warranty does not cover any failure of the Product due to normal wear and tear, or due to misuse, including but not limited to use in other than the normal and customary manner, in accordance with the Sony Ericsson instructions for use and maintenance of the Product. Nor does this warranty cover any failure of the Product due to accident, software or hardware modification or adjustment, acts of God or damage resulting from liquid. A rechargeable battery can be charged and discharged hundreds of times. However, it will eventually wear out ñ this is not a defect. When the talk-time or standby time is noticeably shorter, it is time to replace your battery.

Sony Ericsson recommends that you use only batteries and chargers approved by Sony Ericsson.

4. Since the cellular system on which the Product is to operate is provided by a carrier independent from Sony Ericsson, Sony Ericsson will not be responsible for the operation, availability, coverage, services or range of that system.

5. This warranty does not cover Product failures caused by installations, modifications, or repair or opening of the Product performed by a non-Sony Ericsson authorised person.

6. The warranty does not cover Product failures which have been caused by use of accessories or other peripheral devices which are not Ericsson or Sony Ericsson branded original accessories intended for use with the Product.

7. Tampering with any of the seals on the Product will void the warranty.

8. THERE ARE NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, OTHER

THAN THIS PRINTED LIMITED WARRANTY. ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING

WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR

FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED TO THE DURATION OF THIS

LIMITED WARRANTY. IN NO EVENT SHALL SONY ERICSSON OR ITS LICENSORS

BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY NATURE

WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOST PROFITS OR COMMERCIAL

LOSS, TO THE FULL EXTENT THOSE DAMAGES CAN BE DISCLAIMED BY LAW.

Additional Information

Some countries/states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, or limitation of the duration of implied warranties, so the preceding limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

The warranty provided does not affect the consumer's statutory rights under applicable legislation in force, nor the consumer's rights against the dealer arising from their sales/ purchase contract.

* European Union (EU)

If you have purchased your Product in an EU country you can have your Product serviced, under the conditions set out above, within the warranty period in any EU country where an identical Product is sold by an authorised Sony Ericsson distributor. To find out if your Product is sold in the EU country you are in, please call the local Sony Ericsson Customer Care Centre. Please observe that certain services may not be possible elsewhere than in the country of original purchase, for example due to the fact that your Product may have an interior or exterior which is different from equivalent models sold in other EU countries. It may not be possible to repair SIM-locked Products.

** In some countries/regions additional information is requested. If so, this is clearly shown on the valid proof of purchase.

Or

The APN server resource to contact, for example,

Interent.operator.net - to connect to the Internet via the mobile operator’s or your corporate Intranet via a VPN.

You will need to know the bearer capability provided by your service provider, so you can select the appropriate option during set up.

If you intend to create connections via CSD contact your network operator and check the supported speeds.

The username your service provider gave you when the account was set up. Some dial-up accounts do not require a Username, in this case leave the field blank.

Some dial-up accounts do not require a Password, in this case leave the field blank.

An ‘address’ that the service provider knows you by and uses to route information to and from your EDGE PC Card. Your IP address will either be:

Server - assigned by the service provider when you connect.

Static - assigned once by the service provider or the IT Manager.

If your IP address is Static you must enter it into Own IP address fields which is available when you select Details in the Connection APN dialog.

This tells the EDGE PC Card where to find the service provider’s DNS

Service. DNS translates addresses such as www.sonyericsson.com to the numeric IP address so that the information can be accessed.

Like IP assignment above, the DNS can be static or allocated by the service provider when you connect. If static is selected additional fields need to be completed containing the static information.

TCP/IP Optimisation

To take full advantage of the high bandwidth of the PC Card, the TCP/IP window size parameter

TCPWindowSize should be changed from the default Windows setting of 16k for Windows 2000, or 64k for Windows XP. Sony Ericsson recommends a TCP/IP packet size of 43200 for optimum performance with the PC Card. An MTU size of 1450 is also considered optimal for EDGE networks.

These settings are made automatically when the Wireless Manager is installed. They may be viewed and, if necessary, changed in the properties of the Sony Ericsson Wireless WAN network adaptor.

Select Start

Settings

Network and Dial-up Connections, locate the Sony Ericsson Wireless

WAN adaptor in the list, right-click on it and select Properties.

Click Configure on the Advanced tab. If directed by your network operator, you may change the settings by selecting TCPWindowSize or MTU and changing the value. Changes to these settings require the network adaptor to be restarted. It is recommended that the laptop is rebooted.

Appendix A - Connection Parameters 65

If you have previously optimised TCPWindowSize, for example as directed by a broadband internet service provider, then check whether that setting is global or specific to the network adaptor over which the broadband connection is made. It is preferable that all TCPWindowSize settings are specific to the network adaptor involved, since this ensures that each individual connection is correctly optimised.

In some cases it is necessary to set TCPWindowSize globally. Further information and a utility to do this is available at www.sonyericsson.com/support.
