Touchpad Pointing Device
Certain S7000 LifeBook notebooks are
equipped with an optional “Quick Point”
button for moving the cursor. For more
information about Quick Point, see
“Optional Quick Point Feature” on
page 16.
The Touchpad pointing device comes built into your
Fujitsu LifeBook notebook. It is used to control the
movement of the pointer to select items on your display
panel. The Touchpad is composed of a cursor control, a
left and right button, and a scrolling button. The cursor
control works the same way a mouse does, and moves
the cursor around the display. It only requires light pressure with the tip of your finger. The left and right
buttons function the same as mouse buttons. The actual
functionality of the buttons may vary depending on the
application that is being used. The scrolling button
allows you to navigate quickly through pages, without
having to use the scroll bars. (Figure 2-11)
An external mouse can be connected to
either the USB port on your LifeBook notebook or the USB or PS/2 ports on the
optional port replicator, and used simultaneously with the Touchpad. However, if
you boot the system with an external
mouse connected the Touchpad will be
disabled or enabled depending on the
specifications in your BIOS settings. (See
CLICKING
Clicking means pushing and releasing a button. To leftclick, move the cursor to the item you wish to select,
press the left button once, and then immediately release
it. To right-click, move the mouse cursor to the item you
wish to select, press the right button once, and then
immediately release it. You also have the option to
perform the clicking operation by tapping lightly on the
Touchpad once. (Figure 2-12)
Figure 2-12 Clicking
DOUBLE-CLICKING
Double-clicking means pushing and releasing the left
button twice in rapid succession. This procedure does
not function with the right button. To double-click,
move the cursor to the item you wish to select, press
the left button twice, and then immediately release it.
You also have the option to perform the double-click
operation by tapping lightly on the Touchpad twice.

DRAGGING
Dragging means pressing and holding the left button,
while moving the cursor. To drag, move the cursor to
the item you wish to move. Press and hold the left
button while moving the item to its new location
and then release it. Dragging can also be done using the
Touchpad. First, tap the Touchpad twice over the item
you wish to move making sure to leave your finger on
the pad after the final tap. Next, move the object to its
new location by moving your finger across the
Touchpad, and then release your finger. (Figure 2-14)
The Windows Control Panel allows you to customize your
Touchpad with selections made from within the Mouse
Properties dialog box.
SCROLLING
Using the Scrolling button allows you to navigate
through a document quickly without using the window’s
scroll bars. This is particularly useful when you are navigating through on-line pages. To use the Scrolling
button, press the crescent shape at the top or bottom of
the button to scroll up or down a page. When you have
reached the desired section of the page, release the
button. (Figure 2-15)

OPTIONAL QUICK POINT FEATURE
Figure 2-14 Dragging
The optional Quick Point device consists of a cursor
control button at the lower center of the keyboard. It is
roughly the same size and shape as a pencil eraser. The
cursor control works the same way a mouse ball does,
and moves the cursor around the display. It only requires
light pressure to move; the more pressure you use, the
faster the cursor will move.
When used with the Quick Point button, the middle
Touchpad button allows you to scroll up and down a
screen.

other. It should be noted that if you set
your software volume to Off, you will
override the external volume control
setting.
There are 26 levels through which the
function keys cycle.
■
■
Volume can be controlled by many volume controls
that are set within individual applications.
Certain external audio devices you might connect to
your system may have hardware volume controls.
Each source discussed above puts an upper limit on the
volume level that must then be followed by the other
sources.
CONTROLLING THE VOLUME
The volume can be controlled in several different ways:
■
■
Volume can be set from within the Volume Control on
the Taskbar.
Volume can be controlled with the F8 and F9 functions keys. Pressing [F8] repeatedly while holding [Fn]

source. This means that at least one
battery is installed and charged, or that the
AC or Auto/Airline adapter is connected
and has power.
BOOT SEQUENCE
The procedure for starting up your notebook is called
the Bootup sequence and involves your notebook’s
BIOS. When your LifeBook notebook is first turned on,
the main system memory is empty, and it needs to find
instructions to start up your notebook. This information
is in the BIOS program. Each time you power up or
restart your notebook, it goes through a boot sequence
which displays a Fujitsu logo until your operating system
is loaded. During booting, your notebook is performing
a standard boot sequence including a Power On Self Test
(POST). If the sequence is completed without a failure
and without a request for the BIOS Setup Utility, the
system displays the operating system’s opening screen.

Power Management
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has many options and
features for conserving battery power. Some of these
features are automatic and need no user intervention,
such as those for the internal modem. However, others
depend on the parameters you set to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness. Internal power management for your notebook
may be controlled from settings made in your operating
system, pre-bundled power management application, or
from settings made in BIOS setup utility.
Besides the options available for conserving battery
power, there are also some things that you can do to
prevent your battery from running down as quickly.
For example, you can create an appropriate power saving
profile, put your notebook into Suspend mode when it
is not performing an operation, and you can limit the
use of high power devices. As with all mobile, battery
powered computers, there is a trade-off between
performance and power savings.
POWER/SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON
When your LifeBook notebook is active, the Power/
Suspend/Resume button can be used to manually put
your notebook into Suspend mode. Push the Power/
Suspend/Resume button when your notebook is active,
but not actively accessing anything, and immediately
release the button. You will hear two short beeps and
your system will enter Suspend mode. (See figure 2-3 on
page 6 for location)
If your LifeBook is suspended, pushing the Power/
Suspend/Resume button returns your notebook to active
operation. You can tell whether the system is Suspended
by looking at the Power indicator. (See figure 2-3 on
page 6) If the indicator is visible and not flashing, your
notebook is fully operational. If the indicator is visible
and flashing, your notebook is in Suspend mode. If the
indicator is not visible, the power is off or your notebook
is in Hibernation mode. (See Hibernation Feature)
SUSPEND MODE
Suspend or Standby mode in Windows saves the
contents of your LifeBook notebook’s system memory
during periods of inactivity by maintaining power to
critical parts. This mode will turn off the CPU, the
display, the hard drive, and all of the other internal
components except those necessary to maintain system
memory and allow for restarting. Your notebook can be
put in Suspend mode by:
■
■
■
Pressing the Power/Suspend/Resume button when
your system is turned on.
Selecting Standby from the Windows Shut Down menu.
Timing out from lack of activity.
32
■
Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery
Warning condition.
Your notebook’s system memory typically stores the file
on which you are working, open application information, and any other data required to support operations
in progress. When you resume operation from Suspend
mode, your notebook will return to the point where it left
off. You must use the Power/Suspend/Resume button to
resume operation, and there must be an adequate power
source available, or your notebook will not resume.
■
If you are running your LifeBook notebook on battery power, be aware that
the battery continues to discharge while
your notebook is in Suspend mode,
though not as fast as when fully operational.
■
Disabling the Power/Suspend/Resume
button prevents it from being used to
put your LifeBook notebook in Suspend
or Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) mode.
The resume function of the button cannot be disabled.
■
The Suspend or Hibernation (Save-toDisk) mode should not be used with certain PC Cards. Check your PC Card documentation for more information. When
PC Cards or external devices are in use,
Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) mode cannot
return to the exact state prior to suspension, because all of the peripheral
devices will be re-initialized when the
system restarts.
■
If your LifeBook notebook is actively
accessing information when you enter
the Suspend or Hibernation (Save-toDisk) mode, changes to open files are
not lost. The files are left open and
memory is kept active during Suspend
mode or the memory is transferred to
the internal hard drive during Hibernation mode.
The main advantage of using the
Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) function is that
power is not required to maintain your
data. This is particularly important if you
will be leaving your LifeBook notebook in
a suspended state for a prolonged period
of time. The drawback of using
Hibernation mode is that it lengthens the
power down and power up sequences and
resets peripheral devices.

HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) FEATURE
RESTARTING THE SYSTEM
The Hibernation feature saves the contents of your
LifeBook notebook’s system memory to the hard drive as
a part of the Suspend/Resume mode. You can enable or
disable this feature.
If your system is on and you need to restart it, be sure
that you use the following procedure.

Control Panel.
2. From the Control Panel select Power Options.
3. Select the Advanced tab. Select Hibernate from the
pull down menu for Power buttons.
DISPLAY TIMEOUT
The Video Timeout is one of the power management
parameters. This feature saves power by turning off the
display if there is no keyboard or pointer activity for the
user selected timeout period. Any keyboard or pointer
activity will cause the display to restart automatically.
This feature is independent of the Power/Suspend/
Resume button and can be enabled and disabled in
Windows and BIOS setup utility. (See BIOS Setup Utility
on page 29 for more information)
HARD DISK TIMEOUT
The Hard Disk Timeout is another one of the power
management parameters. This feature saves power by
turning off the hard drive if there is no hard drive
activity for the user selected timeout period. Any
attempt to access the hard drive will cause it to restart
automatically. This feature is independent of the Power/
Suspend/Resume button and can be enabled and
disabled in Windows and BIOS setup utility. (See BIOS
Setup Utility on page 29 for more information)
1. Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down.
2. Select the Restart option from within the Windows
Shut Down dialog box.
3. Click OK to restart your notebook. Your notebook
will shut down and then reboot.
Turning off your notebook without exiting
Windows, or turning it on within 10
seconds of being shut off may cause an
error when you start the next time.
POWER OFF
Before turning off the power, check that the Hard Drive,
optical drive, PC Card, and Floppy Disk indicators are
all Off. (See figure 2-3 on page 6). If you power-off while
accessing a disk or PC Card there is a risk of data loss. To
ensure that the notebook shuts down without error, use
the Windows shutdown procedure.
Be sure to close all files, exit all
applications, and shut down your
operating system prior to turning off the
power. If files are open when you turn the
power off, you will lose any changes that
have not been saved, and may cause disk
errors.
Using the correct procedure to shut down from Windows
allows your notebook to complete its operations and turn
off power in the proper sequence to avoid errors. The
proper sequence is:
1. Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down or
Turn Off Computer.
2. Select the Shut Down option from within the
Windows Shut Down dialog box.
3. Click OK to shut down your notebook.
If you are going to store your notebook for a month or
more see Care and Maintenance Section.
WINDOWS POWER MANAGEMENT
Power Management
The Power Management icon located in the Windows
Control Panel allows you to configure some power
management settings. For example, you can use Power
Management to set the timeout values for turning off the
display and hard disks whether you are running the
notebook on battery power or one of the adapters. The
settings may also be changed in the BIOS. (See BIOS

User Installable Features
Lithium ion Battery
Your LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion battery that
provides power for operating your notebook when no
external power source is available. The battery is durable
and long lasting, but should not be exposed to extreme
temperatures, high voltages, chemicals or other hazards.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become
shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
■
■
When used at temperatures that exceeds a low of 5°C
or a high of 35°C. Extreme temperatures not only
reduce charging efficiency, but can also cause battery
deterioration. The Charging icon on the Status Indicator panel will flash when you try to charge a battery
that is outside its operating temperature range.
(See Battery Charging Indicators on page 12 for more
information)
When using a high current device such as a modem,
Super-Multi DVD drive, CD-ROM drive, DVD/CDRW combo drive, or the hard drive, using the AC
adapter will conserve your battery life.
Do not leave a faulty battery in your
LifeBook notebook. It may damage your
AC adapter, optional Auto/Airline adapter,
another battery or your notebook itself. It
may also prevent operation of your
notebook by draining all available current
into the bad battery.
■
■
Actual battery life will vary based on
screen brightness, applications, features, power management settings, battery condition and other customer
preferences. CD-ROM drive, SuperMulti DVD drive, DVD/CD-RW drive
combo, or hard drive usage may also
have a significant impact on battery life.
The battery charging capacity is reduced
as the battery ages. If your battery is
running low quickly, you should replace
it with a new one.
Under federal, state, or local law it may
be illegal to dispose of batteries by putting them in the trash. Please take care
of our environment and dispose of batteries properly. Check with your local
government authority for details regarding recycling or disposing of old batteries. If you cannot find this information
elsewhere, contact your support representative at 1-800-8FUJITSU (1-800838-5487)
RECHARGING THE BATTERIES
If you want to know the condition of the primary
Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Level indicator
located on the Status Indicator panel. The indicator
changes as the battery level changes.
The Lithium ion battery is recharged internally using
the AC adapter or Auto/Airline adapter. To recharge the
battery make sure the battery that needs to be charged
is installed in your LifeBook notebook and connect the
AC or Auto/Airline adapter.
Make sure that the Battery Charging
indicator and the percentage charge is
shown inside the Battery Level icon on the
Status Indicator Panel.
There is no memory effect on the Lithium ion battery
therefore you do not need to discharge the battery
completely before recharging. The charge times will be
significantly longer if your notebook is in use while the
battery is charging. If you want to charge the battery
more quickly, put your notebook into Suspend mode,
or turn it off while the adapter is charging the battery.
(See Power Management on page 32 for more information
on Suspend mode and shutdown procedure)
Using heavy current devices such as
Modem or frequent DVD/CD-RW/CDROM accesses may prevent charging
completely.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, a low battery notification message will appear. If you do not respond to the
low battery message, the batteries will continue to
discharge until they are too low to operate. When this
happens, your notebook will go into Suspend mode.
There is no guarantee that your data will be saved once
the notebook reaches this point.
■
Once the low battery notification message appears, you need to save all your

Optical Drive
There is a variety of media available to use with your
system, depending upon the system configuration you
have selected. Super-Multi DVD drives, DVD/CD-RW
Combo drives, and CD-ROM drives are collectively
known as “optical drives”.
A CD-R or DVD-R disc can only be written to once;
CD-RW or DVD-RW discs can be written to over and
over. CD-R and CD-RW discs hold up to 700MB of data.
DVD-R and DVD-RW discs hold up to 4.7 GB of data.
Depending upon the configuration of your LifeBook
notebook, you may have one of the following drives:
■
■
■
Super-Multi DVD: The Super-Multi DVD drive combines seven recordable formats in a single drive (DVDR, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, CD-R,
and CD-RW), making it the most versatile drive to
date.
DVD/CD-RW combo: A DVD/CD-RW combo drive
allows you to access movie, software, data, or audio
DVD/CDs, and to write data onto recordable CD-R
and CD-RW discs.
CD-ROM: A CD-ROM drive allows you to access software, data, or audio CDs.
Install your media player software before
first using the DVD, DVD/CD-RW, or CDROM media drives. Refer to the applicable
readme file on the Driver Applications CDROM.
MEDIA PLAYER SOFTWARE
Super-Multi DVD model only: With the Super-Multi
DVD drive and media player software you can play DVD
movies and music CDs on your LifeBook notebook. The
media player includes controls which allow you to take
full advantage of the features of a DVD movie, as well as
standard features such as fast forward, fast reverse,
pause, etc. With this drive you can also burn onto
recordable DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, or CD-R/RW
discs.
The Super-Multi DVD drive also supports
burning and reading DVD-RAM. Windows
XP supports burning and reading of DVDRAM as a standard feature; Windows
2000 does not support either. To burn
and/or read DVD-RAM with Windows
2000, use the DLA (Drive Letter Access)
utility which comes with RecordNow and

USING MEDIA PLAYER ON BATTERY POWER
Since optical drives consume a lot of power, your overall
battery life will be significantly shorter when operating
the optical drive continuously (such as watching a DVD
movie) than during standard operation. Many movies
run-times are longer than your LifeBook notebook can
support on a single charged battery. If you are watching a
DVD movie on battery power you may need to swap in
an additional, charged battery or attach AC power during
the movie to view it in its entirety.
■
■
■
Prolonged use of the optical drive, such
as watching a DVD movie, will greatly
reduce your notebook’s battery life.
Many movie run-times are longer than
your system can support on a single
battery. If you are watching a DVD
movie on battery power you may need
to swap in an additional, charged
battery or attach AC power during the
movie to view it in its entirety.
An additional fully-charged battery is
highly recommended if you will be
watching DVD movies on battery
power. If you don’t have an additional
battery, you may purchase one either
online at us.fujitsu.com/computers or
by calling 1-877-372-3473.
To Watch a Movie on Battery Power:
1. Have an additional full-charged battery or your AC
adapter ready for use.
2. Start watching your DVD movie.
3. When the low battery warning occurs, immediately
stop the movie and exit the media player.
If you do not stop the media player quickly
and the LifeBook notebook attempts to
auto-suspend (critical battery low state)
the LifeBook notebook will shut down
improperly. If this occurs, you will need to
perform a hard reset and follow the
instruction, if any, presented to you before
the system will reboot.
4. Power down your LifeBook notebook and replace
the discharged battery with an additional fullycharged battery. If you do not have an additional
battery, you may attach AC power as soon as you see
the low battery warning.
5. Resume your LifeBook notebook by pressing the
Suspend button again. This is not required if you
attached AC power without entering suspend mode.
6. Restart your media player, locate and skip to the
chapter of the movie you were last watching.
7. Continue watching your DVD movie.
Some shorter DVD movies may not require
you to swap batteries or attach AC power
to complete them. However, it is best to
be prepared since actual battery life while
operating the optical drive cannot be
guaranteed.

RESTORING YOUR
PRE-INSTALLED SOFTWARE
If your system was delivered with
Windows 2000 as the operating system,
the Windows 2000 image is on the D:
partition, but the Restore Disc contains
Windows XP. If you decide to restore your
system from the Restore Disc, you will
overwrite Windows 2000 with the
Windows XP operating system.
The Drivers and Applications Restore (DAR) CD
contains:
■
■
■
Sets of device drivers and Fujitsu utilities (in specific
directories) that are unique to your LifeBook notebook configuration for use as documented below.
A link to the Drive Image Special Edition (DISE)
utility on your hard disk drive.
Read-me files that provide additional use information
for items on this CD-ROM.
If the DAR CD is in the drive when you
boot up the system, a message will appear
informing you that continuing to boot
from the CD will overwrite all information
on the hard drive, including saved files,
and restore the hard drive to its factory
configuration. If you wish to install drivers
or applications only from the CD, remove
the disk from the drive, reboot the system,
and insert the CD after Windows has
started.
If you have access to the internet, visit the
Fujitsu Support web site at us.fujitsu.com/
computers to check for the most current
information, drivers and hints on how to
perform recovery and system updates.
DRIVE IMAGE SPECIAL EDITION (DISE)
PowerQuest Drive Image Special Edition (DISE)
provides a way to restore your computer if you experience a hard disk crash or other system failure. Fujitsu has
used DISE to create an image of everything installed on
the computer at the time you purchased it. The image is
saved on a separate partition on the hard disk. You can
use DISE to restore the factory image and return your
computer to the state in which it was shipped from
Fujitsu.
Although it is not necessary, you can use DISE to store
additional image files that you create. For example, if
you install several applications and save data files on
your hard disk, you can create a new image file that
includes them and then save that image file on the hard
66
disk. Then, in the event of a hard disk failure, you can
restore the image that includes the applications and data
files you use.
Using the DISE feature will reduce the
amount of usable disk space on your hard
disk drive.
Creating a Backup Image
You can create a backup image of your C:\ drive at any
time. The C:\ partition must be a FAT, FAT32, or NTFS
partition, and it must be directly before the backup
partition on your hard disk.
There are two ways to implement the DISE utility: When
booting up the system, or from the desktop.
Creating a backup image when booting up
Before creating a backup image at boot-up, you must
first change the boot-up priority in the BIOS so that the
system will go to the CD drive first, rather than trying to
boot-up from the hard drive or an external floppy disk
drive.
To change the boot-up priority:
1. Start your system and press the [F2] key when the
Fujitsu logo appears. You will enter the BIOS Setup
Utility.
2. Using the arrow keys, go to the Boot menu.
3. Arrow down to the Boot Device Priority submenu
and press [Enter].
4. Arrow down to the CD-ROM drive in the list, and
press the space bar (or the + key) to move the CDROM drive to the top of the list. (The system
attempts to boot from the devices in the order in
which they are listed.)
5. Press [F10], then click on [Yes] to exit the BIOS
Setup Utility and return to the boot process.
After you have changed the boot priority, you can create
a backup image when you are booting up:
1. Install the DAR CD in the drive prior to booting up.
When bootup begins, a message will appear
informing you that continuing to boot from the CD
will overwrite all information on the hard drive,
including saved files, and restore the hard drive to its
factory configuration.
2. When you are asked if you want to restore the
factory image, click [Y]es.
Creating a backup image from the desktop
To create a backup image from the desktop, select Drive
Image SE from the Program list. You will initially be
prompted to create a backup diskette. It is not necessary
S Series.book Page 67 Thursday, February 19, 2004 4:52 PM
Troubleshooting
to create the backup diskette, since the DAR CD
performs the same function.
AUTOMATICALLY DOWNLOADING
DRIVER UPDATES
1. At the Drive Image Special Edition main screen,
click Options> Create New Backup. DISE displays a
warning that it must go to DOS to create the image.
3. Click Yes.
DISE creates an image file in the backup partition. If
you created a backup image previously, the new
image overwrites the old one.
Your system has a convenient tool called the Fujitsu
Driver Update (FDU) utility. With FDU, you can choose
to automatically or manually go to the Fujitsu site to
check for new updates for your system.
Enlarging the Backup Partition
If there is not enough unused space in the backup partition on your hard disk, DISE will resize the partition.
DISE will display the minimum, maximum, and recommended sizes for the backup partition. You choose the
size you want.
DISE takes the space from the FAT, FAT32, or NTFS
partition that you are backing up. If there is not enough
unused space in that partition to take, you will not be
able to resize the backup partition and create an image
file. You can delete files from the FAT, FAT32, or NTFS
partition to create more unused space on the hard disk.
The FDU icon should appear in the system tray at the
bottom right of your screen (roll the cursor over the
icons to find the correct one). If the FDU icon does not
appear in the system tray, it can be started by going to
[Start] -> All Programs, and clicking on Fujitsu Driver
Update; this will create the icon automatically.
To invoke the FDU menu, you can either right-click on
the FDU icon or hold the pen on the icon for a couple of
seconds until the menu appears. The menu contains the
following items:
■
Check for updates now
Allows for manual driver update search. The first
time it is used, you are prompted to agree to a user
agreement. After clicking on the icon, the FDU automatically connects with the Fujitsu site to check for
updates and downloads them. While downloading,
the icon has a red bar through it, indicating that it
cannot be used while the download is in process.
When the update is complete, a message appears
informing you of the fact.
■
Enable Automatic Update Notifications
Automatically searches for new updates on a regular
basis (approximately every 3 days).
■
Show update history
Brings up a screen that displays a history of updates
that have been made via the FDU.
■
About Fujitsu Driver Update
Displays the FDU version number and copyright
information
■
Fujitsu Driver Update Readme
Displays the FDU readme.
Restoring a Backup Image
You can restore either a factory image or a backup image
you created. Be aware that restoring a backup image will
replace the contents of the C:\ partition with the image
you restore.
1. Disable virus protection software. If virus protection
software is enabled, DISE will hang.
2. From the DISE main window, click Options >
Restore Backup to restore an image you created, or
click Options > Restore Factory Backup to restore
the factory image.
DISE shuts down to DOS and restores the image file.
Re-Installing Individual Drivers and Applications
The Drivers and Application CD can be used to selectively re-install drivers and/or applications that may have
been un-installed or corrupted.
To re-install drivers and/or applications:
1. Boot up the system and insert the DAR CD after
Windows has started. The LifeBook Easy Installation
screen appears.
2. Select the drivers and applications you want to
install from the list that is displayed.
3. Click [Start]. Follow the prompts that appear to
complete installation of the selected drivers and/or
applications.

Before Using the Wireless LAN
The Integrated Wireless LAN is an optional device available for Fujitsu mobile computers. This manual
describes the basic operating procedures for the Wireless
LAN (referred to as the “device” in this manual) and
how to set up a wireless LAN network. Before using this
device, read this manual carefully to ensure correct operation of the device. Keep this manual in a safe place for
reference while using the device.
Types of Wireless LANs Covered by this Document
This document is applicable to systems containing one
of the following two devices. Most of the procedures are
identical. Sections that differ between the two devices
have been noted in the text:
■
Intel PROSet Wireless LAN
■
Atheros Wireless LAN
If your system is a Stylistic S7010, your wireless module
is the Intel PROSet wireless LAN; if your system is a
Stylistic S7010D, your wireless module is the Atheros
wireless LAN.
Characteristics of the Device
This device consists of a wireless LAN card that is
attached inside the computer via a mini-PCI slot.
The main characteristics are as follows:
■
It operates in the 2.4 GHz Industrial, Scientific, and
Medical (ISM) RF band; additionally, the Atheros
wireless LAN module operates in both the 2.4 GHz
and 5 GHz RF bands.
■
It does not require an FCC license to operate.
■
It uses Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS), an
RF modulation scheme that is resistant to noise.
Figure 1. Ad Hoc Mode Network
94
■
This wireless module is Wi-Fi compliant. The module
can communicate at a maximum data rate of 54 Mbps.
■
The maximum communication range is approximately 80 feet (25 meters) inside a building. Please
note that the range you achieve may be shorter or
longer than 80 feet, depending upon factors such as
obstructions, walls, columns, construction material,
and reflective objects.
■
The wireless module s support a number of industrystandard security mechanisms, including WEP, TKIP,
and 802.1x/EAP (LEAP, TLS, PEAP, MD5).
Wireless LAN Modes Using this Device
Ad Hoc Mode (See Figure 1)
“Ad Hoc Mode” refers to a type of wireless network that
involves connecting multiple computers without the use
of an Access Point. Network connectivity between
computers can be established using only wireless LAN
cards in a peer-to-peer fashion.
Ad Hoc networks are an easy and inexpensive method
for establishing network connectivity between multiple
computers.
In the Ad Hoc mode, you can use the function
supported by Microsoft Network, such as File and Print
Sharing to exchange files and share a printer or other
peripheral devices.
To use Ad Hoc Mode, you must set the same SSID and
the same encryption key for all the computers that are
connected. Communication between computers in an
Ad Hoc network will occur provided they are within
each other’s RF coverage area.

Wireless LAN Glossary
Ad hoc
A designation for wireless LAN network configuration.
It indicates a form of communication limited to those
personal computers which have wireless LAN function.
For details, refer to “Ad hoc connection” on page 94.
Channel
The frequency band of wireless LAN to be used in
communications over wireless LAN or at the access
point.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
A protocol used for automatically fetching communication parameters such as IP addresses. The side which
assigns IP address is called DHCP server and the side
that is assigned it is called DHCP client.
DNS (Domain Name System)
A function that controls the correspondence of IP
addresses assigned to a computer with the name. Even
for those computers whose IP addresses are unknown, if
their names are known, it is possible to communicate
with them.
IEEE802.11a
One of the wireless LAN standards prescribed by the 802
committee in charge of establishing standards of LAN
technology in IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineers). It allows communications at the maximum
speed of 54 Mbps by using a 5GHz band which can
freely be used without radio communication license.
IEEE802.11b
One of the wireless LAN standards prescribed by 802
committee in charge of establishing standards of LAN
technology in IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic
Engineers). It allows communications at the maximum
speed of 11Mbps by a band of 2.4 GHz (ISM band)
which can freely be used without radio communication
license.
Access point
A designation of Wireless LAN network configurations.
It indicates a form of communication using an Access
Point. For details, refer to “access point connection” on
page 94.
IP address
An address used by computers for communicating in
TCP/IP environment. IP addresses have global and
private addresses. A global address is a unique address in
110
the world. A private address is a unique address within a
closed network.
LAN (Local Area Network)
An environment connecting computers within a relatively small range, such as the same floor and building.
MAC address (Media Access Control Address)
A physical address inherent to a network card. For
Ethernet, the top three bytes are controlled/assigned as a
vendor code. The remaining three bytes comprise the
code uniquely (to avoid duplication) controlled by each
vendor. As a result, there is no Ethernet card with the
same physical address in the world. In Ethernet, the
frame transmission/reception is performed based on this
address.
MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit)
The maximum size of data which can be transmitted at
one time in networks including the Internet. In an environment whose maximum size of data is too large to
correctly receive data, normal communications can be
restored by setting the size of MTU to a smaller value.
Network authentication
The method of authentication performed by wireless
LAN clients to connect with the access point. There are
two types: open system authentication and shared key
authentication. The type of authentication must be set
to each client and also coincide with the setting of access
point with which to communicate. Network authentication is sometimes called authentication mode.
Network key
Data that is used for encrypting data in data communication. The personal computer uses the same network
key both for data encryption and decryption, therefore,
it is necessary to set the same network key as the other
side of communication.
Network name (SSID: Security Set Identifier)
When a wireless LAN network is configured, grouping is
performed to avoid interference or data theft. This
grouping is performed with “Network name (SSID)”. In
order to improve security, the network key is set
allowing no communication unless “Network name
(SSID)” coincides with the network key.
Open system authentication
One of network authentication types for wireless LAN.
Since there is no check of network key upon authentication, clients can connect to the access point without
S Series.book Page 111 Thursday, February 19, 2004 4:52 PM
W I r e l e s s L A N U s e r ’s G u i d e
submitting correct network keys. However, in case of
actual communications, the same network key must be
set. Open system authentication is sometimes called
Open key authentication.
PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet)
A method of allowing the authentication protocol
adopted in telephone line connection (PPP) to be used
over an Ethernet.
Protocol
A procedure or rule of delivering data among
computers. Ordered data communication is allowed by
making all conditions required for communication
including the method of data transmission/reception
and actions upon communication errors into procedures.
Shared key authentication
One of the network authentication types for wireless
LAN. Upon authentication, the access point checks
whether the same network key is set to the client. If the
client uses a wrong network key or the network key itself
is not set, authentication is unsuccessful, allowing no
communications with the access point.
SSID (Security Set Identifier)
See “Network name”
Subnet mask
TCP-IP network is controlled by being divided into
multiple smaller networks (subnets). IP address consists
of the subnet address and the address of each computer.
Subnet mask defines how many bits of IP address
comprise the subnet address. The same value shall be set
among computers communicating with each other.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol)
A standard protocol of the Internet.
Wi-Fi
Indicates that the interconnectivity test of the organization which guarantees the compatible connection of
wireless LAN (Wi-Fi Alliance) has been passed.

IP address information
IP addressing is much more complicated
than can be briefly explained in this
document. You are advised to consult with
your network administrator for additional
information.
If IP address is unknown, set IP address as follows:
If you have an access point (DHCP server) on the
network, set the IP address as follows:
Windows 2000: [Obtain an IP address automatically]
Windows XP: [Obtain an IP address automatically]
A DHCP server is a server that
automatically assigns IP addresses to
computers or other devices in the network.
There is no DHCP server for the AdHoc
network.
If the IP address is already assigned to the computer in
the network, ask the network administrator to check the
IP address to be set for the computer.
If no access point is found in the network:
An IP address is expressed with four values in the range
between 1 and 255.
Set the each computer as follows: The value in parentheses is a subnet mask.
<Example>
Computer A: 192.168.100.2 (255.255.255.0)
Computer B: 192.168.100.3 (255.255.255.0)
