Access Point
Figure 15 – VER. History
An interface between a wireless network and a wired network. Access points can be used with Ethernet
or other communications to enable roaming throughout a facility.
Ad-Hoc Mode
A wireless network composed of devices that contain a network interface card and no access point.
Ad-Hoc mode is also called peer-to-peer (point-to-point) communications or BSS network. As long as the
devices are in range and are on the same channel and SSID, they connect and communicate. Use this
mode if a wireless infrastructure does not exist or where services are not required.
Authentication Method
Identifies users on a network, based on a username and password. There are two types, open and
shared. Authentication protocols include LEAP, PEAP, TLS, TTLS, EAP-FAST, and PSK.
Auto Method
One of the available boot methods. Auto tries DHCP, BOOTP, and RARP, then sets to the last IP address
used if the IP address is not automatically set using any of the previous methods.
BOOTP or Bootstrap Protocol
One of the available boot methods. It is a protocol used by devices that know their MAC address, but do
not know their IP address. The device broadcasts its hardware address and the BOOTP server responds
with the IP address for it. The network administrator must enter the MAC address in the BOOTP Config
file to obtain the IP address from the server.
Boot Method
The wireless print server uses this method to obtain an IP address. Can be set to Auto, DHCP, BOOTP,
RARP, or Static. Boot Tries The number of times the device tries to get an IP address from the server
when using the BOOTP and DHCP methods.
BSS or Basic Service Set
A set of 802.11b/g/n devices operating as a fully connected wireless network.
BSSID : See MAC Address.
Channel or RF Channel
You can select which channel your network devices use to communicate. All devices must be on the
same channel to communicate in Ad-Hoc mode. Other radio devices such as Bluetooth® wireless
devices, microwave ovens, or 2.4-GHz cordless phones may operate/interfere if they are on the same
channel as your network.
DHCP or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
One of the available boot methods. It is a protocol that issues IP addresses automatically within a
specified range to devices (such as printers) when they are first turned on. The device keeps the IP
address for a defined period of time set by your System Administrator; however, a device could have a
different IP address every time it connects to the network.
66
67
EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol)
NIC or Network Interface Card
FAST (Flexible Authentication via Secure Tunneling)
Node
Defines how to pass authentication information between the device and authentication server. The
authentication is handled by the EAP type: FAST, TLS, TTLS, etc.
Cisco Systems® developed this authentication protocol. It does not use certificates to authenticate, but a
PAC (Protected Access Credential), which is managed dynamically by the server. The PAC is distributed
one at a time to the client manually or automatically.
Gateway
Allows connections (communications) between different subnets on a network.
Infrastructure Mode
Requires an access point to communicate with other devices on the network. In infrastructure mode,
wireless devices can communicate with each other or with a wired network.
An adapter (board or card) that can be inserted into a device, so the device can be connected to a
network. The NIC converts data from the device into the form transmitted or received from the network.
A processing location on a network. The location can be a workstation, computer, or printer. Each Node
has a unique MAC address.
Open Authentication
This allows any device to authenticate and then attempt to communicate with the access point. Any
wireless device can authenticate with the accesspoint, but if WEP is used, the device can communicate
only if its WEP keys match the access point’s. There is no challenge that occurs, you either have the
correct key or not when you communicate with the access point. By eliminating the challenge process, it
actually makes this more secure than shared key authentication
PAP (Password Authentication Protocol)
IP Address
One of the available boot methods. It is a protocol used by devices that know their MAC address, but
do An Internet Protocol identifier for a device on a network. It consists of four 3-digit numeric fields,
separated by periods. Each number can be zero to 255. An IP address has two components, the
network address and the host address. Most company networks have ranges for their IP addresses.
Boot Method
The wireless print server uses this method to obtain an IP address. Can be set to Auto, DHCP, BOOTP,
RARP, or Static. Boot Tries The number of times the device tries to get an IP address from the server
when using the BOOTP and DHCP methods.
LEAP (Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol)
Cisco Systems® introduced this authentication protocol and provides mutual authentication with unique
WEP keys for each user. New keys are issued based on a time limit. Changing the WEP key time limits
provides additional security.
A simple authentication protocol used with PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol). It is a plain text password
system, which is not very secure. Pathname/The location of a particular file or directory that includes the
full path to the needed filename or directory. This is a combination of path and filename.
PEAP (Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol) :
Authenticates clients into a network using only server-side certificates, which makes implementing and
administering a wireless LAN easier.
Ping
A way to determine if a device is accessible. It sends a packet to the specified address and waits for a
reply.
Protocol
This is the way two devices transmit data between each other, including error checking, data
compression, and how messages start and end.
PSK (Pre-Shared Key)
LPD/LPR
Authentication mode of WPA used in SOHO environments. The key value(or pass-phrase) is used for
network authentication only (not data encryption). It does not use a RADIUS server like the other modes,
but uses a shared key to provide the initial authentication with the access point or host.
MAC Address or Media Access Control
RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In Server)
A printer protocol that uses TCP/IP to establish connections between printers on a network. Also known
as Line Printer Daemon/Line Printer Remote.
A hardware address (6-byte) that uniquely identifies each node of a network.The MAC address is set
during manufacturing and does not change. Also, two Network Interface Cards (NIC) will not have the
same value.
MSCHAPv2
The Microsoft® version of CHAP. It is a three-way handshake protocol that is more secure than PAP. It
provides mutual authentication between devices.
68
This is an authentication server, such as the Cisco® ACS, Microsoft® IAS, etc.
RARP
One of the available boot methods. The device sends an RARP request and the RARP server responds
with an IP address. The device knows its MAC address and the server responds with the IP address for
it.
69
Router
Any device that forwards data along networks. Routers are located at gateways.
Shared Authentication
The access point sends an unencrypted challenge text string to any device attempting to communicate
with it. The device requesting authentication encrypts the challenge text and sends it back to the access
point. If the challenge text is encrypted correctly, the access point allows the requesting device to
authenticate. Both the unencrypted challenge and the encrypted challenge can be monitored; however,
this leaves the access point open to attack. Because of this weakness, shared key authentication can be
less secure than open authentication.
Signal Strength
A percentage (1 to 100) of the connection between the device and access point. If the signal strength is
0, there is no connection with the access point; 30 or less indicates you may be experiencing interference
or close to being out of access point range, and below 50, printing performance could be affected. To
improve the signal strength, try moving the printer closer to the access point and away from other radio
devices such as Bluetooth® wireless devices, microwave ovens, or 2.4-GHz cordless phones.
Speed or Transmit Rate
Sets the maximum rate of communication between the devices on thenetwork. It is also called transmit
rate.
SSID or Service Set Identifier
A unique identifier that must match for all nodes on a subnetwork to communicate with each other. It
consists of up to 32 characters (any printable character, including spaces). If using the space character, it
must be enclosed in quotation marks. It is case-sensitive.
Static Method
TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol)
Changes the encryption keys regularly and has time limits before new keys are created. Changing the
key periodically provides additional security.
TLS (Transport Layer Security)
A cryptographic protocol that uses client-side and server-side certificates to authenticate users on the
Web. It can dynamically create user-based and session-based keys.
TTLS (Tunneled Transport Layer Security)
Provides certificate-based, server-side, mutual authentication of the client and network through an
encrypted channel (or tunnel). It can dynamically create user-based and session-based keys.
WEP or Wired Equivalent Privacy
A security protocol for wireless local area networks. WEP was designed to provide the same level of
security as that of a wired network, which is inherently more secure than a wireless network because
wired networks are easily protected against unauthorized access. Wireless networks use radio waves to
communicate and can be vulnerable to unauthorized users. WEP provides security by encrypting data
over radio waves so that it is protected as it is transmitted. However, it has been found that WEP is not
as secure as once believed
NOTE
If one part of a wireless network has WEP enabled, they all must have it enabled with the same key or they
cannot communicate.
128 Bit / 64 Bit WEP Key
This is the 64 or 128 bit WEP key that must match other Nodes’ encryption keys to communicate:
10 hex characters for 64 bit (40 serspecifiedcharacters), or 26 hex characters for 128 bit (104 userspecified characters). You must use the same key values for devices to
communicate with each other
One of the available boot methods. Use static if your network uses fixed configuration. The IP address
remains the same every time the device connects to the network.
WLAN or Wireless Local Area Network
Subnet
A portion of a network that shares a common address component. On TCP/IP networks, subnets are all
devices with the same prefix. For example, all devices that start with 192.192.192 are part of the same
subnet. Dividing a network into subnets is useful for both security and performance reasons.
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access)
Subnet Mask
A mask is used to determine what subnet an IP address belongs to. Companies often
have ranges of IP addresses that can be described by one or more masks. For example, a mask of
255.255.255.0 allows variation in the last position only, because the first three positions are fixed.
A LAN that uses high-frequency radio waves to communicate between nodes, rather than telephone
wires, etc
A network security protocol that uses improved authentication and temporal keys. It was created to
address the weaknesses of WEP encryption.
WPA2(or IEEE 802.11i) :
A network security protocol with stronger encryption than WPA. It was created to address the
weaknesses of WEP encryption.
TCP/IP
A way that two devices can transmit data between each other. TCP/IP(Transmission Control Protocol/
Internet Protocol) is generally the standard for transmitting data over a network.
