A DVD title has a region code according to the international specifications so that it can be played
only in that specific region. DVD titles with a region code will only play on DVD drives with the
same region code.
A DVD drive is sold with an empty region code and the region code is set when the user inserts
a DVD title into the drive for the first time. Whenever a DVD title is inserted with a region code
that is different from that of the DVD drive, the region code of the DVD drive is automatically
changed to the region code of the DVD title. However, changing the region code of a DVD drive
is limited to 5 changes. After that, the region code is permanently fixed to the last region code.

Check if the surroundings are appropriate for a wireless LAN. A wireless LAN connection may
be limited by the surrounding environment and distance. Obstacles such as walls and door
mats affect the quality of the wireless LAN signal. You have to install an AP in a high, open
position far away from any other radio signal sources. If the AP is excessively far away, or is
installed at the end of a building and you are attempting to use the wireless LAN from the other
end, you may not be able to use the wireless communication normally because the signal is
blocked by obstacles between you and the AP (such as a wall).
A2
Check if the AP operates properly. If the AP is not operating properly, turn it off and on again
and try again.
A3
Check if the AP firmware is the latest version. (For more information on the AP firmware, ask
the AP manufacturer or your product provider.)

Check if the AP is properly connected to the network. Connect the LAN cable from the AP to a
computer and check if the network is connected properly.
A5
Check the Network Key (Encryption Key) settings again.
If the automatic password converting function (passphrase function) is enabled and the wireless connection is normal but you cannot send data over the connection, please enter the Network Key (Encryption Key) manually.
A6
Check the AP settings as follows.
If there are multiple APs running at the same time, check the channel setting of each AP. If
the interval between the channels of the APs is narrow, you may experience electromagnetic
interference. Set the channel numbers of the APs so that the internals between the channels
are maximized. (E.g., Ch1, Ch5, Ch9, Ch13)
If the SSID option is set to Hide, you will not be able to find the AP on your computer. It is
recommended unselecting the Hide option of the AP. SSID (Service Set ID) is a name used to
distinguish a wireless LAN from other wireless LANs.
It is recommended using Long Preamble. Preamble is a signal for data transmission synchronization. Although some APs support Short Preamble, there might be a compatibility problem.
Because 'Fixed' channel selection is more stable then 'Auto' channel selection, 'Fixed' channel
selection is recommended. It is recommended not using the 'Block Any' and 'Any Connection
Block' functions. Although these functions block connections at the client side when the network name is Any or Blank, it may cause a compatibility problem.
For more information on the AP settings, refer to the owner's manual supplied with the AP.

Current aviation regulations require wireless devices to be turned off while travelling in an airplane. 802.11B/G (also known as wireless Ethernet or Wifi) and Bluetooth communication devices are examples of devices that provide wireless communication.
In environments where the risk of interference to other devices or services is harmful or perceived as harmful, the option to use a wireless device may be restricted or eliminated. Airports,
Hospitals, and Oxygen or flammable gas laden atmospheres are limited examples where use of
wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated. When in environments where you are uncertain
of whether wireless devices can be used, ask the applicable authority for authorization prior to
use or turning on the wireless device.
Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless devices. Since your system is
equipped with a wireless device, when travelling between countries with your system, check with
the local Radio Approval authorities prior to any move or trip for any restrictions on the use of a
wireless device in the destination country.
If your system came equipped with an internal embedded wireless device, do not operate the
wireless device unless all covers and shields are in place and the system is fully assembled.
