Click to add a profile from the drop-down screen.

System Configuration tab:

Profile Name: Users can enter profile name, or use default name defined by system. The default is PROF# (#1, #2, #3....).

SSID: The SSID is the unique name shared among all wireless access points in the wireless network. The name must be identical for all devices and wireless access points attempting to connect to the same network.

Users can use pull-down menu to select from available access points.

Network Type: There are two types, Infrastructure and Ad-hoc modes.

Under Ad-hoc mode users can also choose the preamble type, the available preamble type includes Auto and Long. In addition to that, the channel field will be available for setup in Ad-hoc mode.

• The Infrastructure is intended for the connection between wireless network cards and an access point. With the Wireless LAN USB

Adapter, users can connect wireless LAN to a wired global network via an access point.

-

12 -

• The Ad-hoc lets users set a small wireless workgroup easily and quickly. Equipped with the Wireless LAN USB Adapter, users can share files and printers between each PC and laptop.

Tx Power: Transmit power, the amount of power used by a radio transceiver to send the signal out. Select the Tx power percentage from the pull-down list including Auto, 100%, 75%, 50%, 25%, 10% and

Lowest.

Preamble: This function will show up when Ad-hoc network type be selected. A preamble is a signal used in wireless environment to synchronize the transmitting timing including Synchronization and Start frame delimiter. Select from the pull-down menu to change the Preamble type into Auto or Long.

Power Save Mode:

CAM (Constantly Awake Mode): When this mode is selected, the power supply will be normally provided even when there is no throughput. (Default power save mode is CAM.)

PSM (Power Saving Mode): When this mode is selected, this device will stay in power saving mode even when there is high volume of throughput.

RTS Threshold: Users can adjust the RTS threshold number by sliding the bar or key in the value directly. (The default value is 2347.) RTS/CTS

Threshold is a mechanism implemented to prevent the “Hidden Node” problem. If the “Hidden Node” problem is an issue, users have to specify the packet size. The RTS/CTS mechanism will be activated if the data size

exceeds the values that have been set.

This value should remain at its default setting of 2347. Should users encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor modifications of this value are recommended.

Fragment Threshold: Users can adjust the Fragment threshold number by sliding the bar or key in the value directly. (The default value is 2346.)

The mechanism of Fragmentation Threshold is used to improve the efficiency when high traffic flows along in the wireless network. If the

Wireless LAN USB Adapter often transmits large files in wireless network, users can enter new Fragment Threshold value to split the packet. The value can be set from 256 to 2346.

Authentication and Security tab:

Authentication Type: There are several types of authentication modes including Open, Shared, Leap, WPA, WPA-PSK, WPA2 and

WPA2-PSK.

Open: If the access point or wireless router is using "Open” authentication, then the Wireless LAN USB Adapter will need to be set to the same authentication type.

-

13 -

Shared: Shared key is when both the sender and the recipient share a secret key.

LEAP: Light Extensible Authentication Protocol. It is an EAP authentication type used primarily in Cisco Aironet WLANs. It encrypts data transmissions using dynamically generated WEP keys, and supports mutual authentication (only with CCX mode enabled.)

WPA/ WPA-PSK/ WPA2/ WPA2-PSK: WPA or WPA-PSK authentications offer two encryption methods, TKIP and AES. For

WPA-PSK, select the type of algorithm TKIP or AES and then enter a

WPA Shared Key of 8-64 characters in the WPA Pre-shared Key field.

Encryption Type: For Open and Shared authentication mode, the selection of encryption type are None and WEP. For WPA, WPA2,

WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK authentication mode, the encryption type supports both TKIP and AES.

WPA Pre-shared Key: This is the shared secret key between AP and

STA. For WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK authentication mode, this field must be filled with character longer than 8 and less than 64 lengths.

WEP Key: Only valid when using WEP encryption algorithm. The key must match with the AP’s key. There are four formats to enter the keys.

ASCII (64 bits): 5 ASCII characters (case sensitivity).

ASCII (128 bits): 13 ASCII characters (case sensitivity).

Hexadecimal (64 bits): 10 Hex characters (0~9, a~f).

Hexadecimal (128 bits): 26 Hex characters (0~9, a~f).

Show Password: Check this box to show the passwords that have been entered.

802.1x Setting: When users use radius server to authenticate client certificate for WPA authentication mode (WPA authentication do not support EAP Method- MD5-Challenge).

802.1x tab:

-

14 -

EAP Method:

PEAP: Protect Extensible Authentication Protocol. PEAP transport securely authentication data by using tunnelling between PEAP clients and an authentication server. PEAP can authenticate wireless

LAN clients using only server-side certificates, thus simplifying the implementation and administration of a secure wireless LAN.

TLS / Smart Card: Transport Layer Security. Provides for certificate-based and mutual authentication of the client and the network. It relies on client-side and server-side certificates to perform authentication and can be used to dynamically generate user-based and session-based WEP keys to secure subsequent communications between the WLAN client and the access point.

TTLS: Tunnelled Transport Layer Security. This security method provides for certificate-based, mutual authentication of the client and network through an encrypted channel. Unlike EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS requires only server-side certificates.

EAP-FAST: Flexible Authentication via Secure Tunnelling. It was developed by Cisco. Instead of using a certificate, mutual authentication is achieved by means of a PAC (Protected Access

Credential) which can be managed dynamically by the authentication server. The PAC can be provisioned (distributed one time) to the client either manually or automatically. Manual provisioning is delivery to the client via disk or a secured network distribution method. Automatic provisioning is an in-band, over the air, distribution. For tunnel authentication, only support "Generic Token

Card" authentication now.

MD5-Challenge: Message Digest Challenge. Challenge is an EAP authentication type that provides base-level EAP support. It provides for only one-way authentication - there is no mutual authentication of wireless client and the network. (Only Open and Shared authentication mode can use this function.)

Tunnel Authentication:

Protocol: Tunnel protocol, List information including

EAP-MSCHAP v2, EAP-TLS/ Smart Card, and Generic Token

Card.

Tunnel Identity: Identity for tunnel.

Tunnel Password: Password for tunnel.

Session Resumption: Reconnect the signal while broken up, to reduce the packet and improve the transmitting speed. Users can click the box to enable or disable this function.

ID\PASSWORD tab:

-

15 -

ID/ PASSWORD: Identity and password for server.

Authentication ID / Password: Identity, password and domain name for server. Only "EAP-FAST" EAP method and "LEAP" authentication can key in domain name. Domain name can be keyed in blank space.

Tunnel ID / Password: Identity and Password for server.

System Configuration tab:

Profile Name: Users can enter profile name, or use default name defined by system. The default is PROF# (#1, #2, #3....).

SSID: The SSID is the unique name shared among all wireless access points in the wireless network. The name must be identical for all devices and wireless access points attempting to connect to the same network. Users can use pull-down menu to select from available access points.

Network Type: There are two types, Infrastructure and Ad hoc modes.

• The Infrastructure is intended for the connection between wireless network cards and an access point. With the Wireless LAN USB

Adapter, users can connect wireless LAN to a wired global network via an access point.

• The Ad hoc lets users set a small wireless workgroup easily and quickly. Equipped with the Wireless LAN USB Adapter, users can share files and printers between each PC and laptop.

Tx Power: Transmit power, the amount of power used by a radio transceiver to send the signal out. Select the Tx power percentage from the pull-down list including Auto, 100%, 75%, 50%, 25%, 10% and

Lowest.

Power Save Mode:

CAM (Constantly Awake Mode): When this mode is selected, the power supply will be normally provided even when there is no throughput. (Default power save mode is CAM.)

PSM (Power Saving Mode): When this mode is selected, this device will stay in power saving mode even when there is high volume of throughput.

RTS Threshold: Users can adjust the RTS threshold number by sliding the bar or key in the value directly. (The default value is 2347.) RTS/CTS

Threshold is a mechanism implemented to prevent the “Hidden Node” problem. If the “Hidden Node” problem is an issue, users have to specify the packet size. The RTS/CTS mechanism will be activated if the data size

exceeds the value that have been set. This value should remain at its default setting of 2347. Should users encounter inconsistent data flow, only minor modifications of this value are recommended.

Fragment Threshold: Users can adjust the Fragment threshold number by sliding the bar or key in the value directly. (The default value is 2346.)

The mechanism of Fragmentation Threshold is used to improve the efficiency when high traffic flows along in the wireless network. If the

Wireless LAN USB Adapter often transmits large files in wireless network, users can enter new Fragment Threshold value to split the packet. The value can be set from 256 to 2346.

Authentication and Encryption tab:

Authentication Type: There are six type of authentication modes including Open, Shared, WPA, WPA-PSK, WPA2 and WPA2-PSK.

Open: If the access point or wireless router is using "Open” authentication, then the Wireless LAN USB Adapter will need to be set to the same authentication type.

Shared: Shared key is when both the sender and the recipient share a secret key.

-

WPA/ WPA-PSK/ WPA2/ WPA2-PSK: WPA-PSK offers two encryption methods, TKIP and AES. Select the type of algorithm,

TKIP or AES and then enter a WPA Shared Key of 8-63 characters in the WPA Pre-shared Key field.

Encryption Type: For Open and Shared authentication mode, the selection of encryption type are None and WEP. For WPA, WPA2,

WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK authentication mode, the encryption type supports both TKIP and AES.

WPA Pre-shared Key: This blank is the shared secret key between AP and STA. For WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK authentication mode, this field must be filled with character longer than 8 and less than 64 lengths.

WEP Key: Only valid when using WEP encryption algorithm. The key must match with the AP’s key. There are four formats to enter the keys.

ASCII (64 bits): 5 ASCII characters (case sensitivity).

ASCII (128 bits): 13 ASCII characters (case sensitivity).
