About wireless LAN security

Since communication via the wireless LAN function is established by radio waves, the wireless signal may be susceptible to interception. To protect wireless communication, this system supports various security functions. Be sure to correctly configure the security settings in accordance with your network environment.

No Security

Although you can easily make settings, anyone can intercept wireless communication or intrude into your wireless network, even without any sophisticated tools. Keep in mind that there is a risk of unauthorized access or interception of data.

WEP

WEP applies security to communications to prevent outsiders from intercepting communications or intruding into your wireless network. WEP is a legacy security technology that enables older devices, which do not support TKIP/AES, to be connected.

WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK

(TKIP)

TKIP is a security technology developed to correct for the deficiencies of WEP. TKIP assures a higher security level than WEP.

WPA-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (AES)

AES is a security technology that uses an advanced security method that is distinct from

WEP and TKIP. AES assures a higher security level than WEP or TKIP.

Enjoying Sony Multiple-Room

Products

Using the PARTY

STREAMING Function

You can play back audio content that is being played back on this unit or on another device that has a PARTY STREAMING function at the same time, via your home network.

While using the PARTY STREAMING function, the device that starts a PARTY and streams the audio content is called the

“PARTY host,” and the device that joins a

PARTY and plays the audio content streamed from the PARTY host is called a “PARTY guest.”

You can enjoy the PARTY STREAMING function with other devices that have this

PARTY STREAMING logo.

PARTY STREAMING in a wireless LAN environment

With some IEEE802.11n-compatible wireless

LAN routers/access points, the wireless LAN transfer speed may slow down when “WEP” or “WPA/WPA2-PSK (TKIP)” is selected for the security method.

If the sound skips during streaming playback using the PARTY STREAMING function, try changing the security method to “WPA/

30

GB

WPA2-PSK (AES).” This may improve the transfer speed and the streaming playback.

Configurations of encryption (security) vary depending on the model; please refer to the operating instructions supplied with your router/access point.

You can also obtain support information about wireless LAN settings on the following website.

http://www.sony.net/audio/netsettings

Starting a PARTY

You can start a PARTY so that other devices which support the PARTY STREAMING function can play the same music even though they are in different rooms.

Precautions

On safety

• Before operating the system, be sure that the operating voltage of the system is identical with that of your local power supply.

Where purchased Operating voltage

North America 120 V AC, 60 Hz

• Use only the supplied AC adaptor and AC power cord.

On operation

• Do not open the cabinet. Refer servicing to qualified personnel only.

• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the system, have the system checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.

• This system is not magnetically shielded, do not leave recorded tapes, watches, personal credit cards, or floppy disks with magnetic coding in front of the system for an extended period of time.

• Do not put anything on top of the unit.

• Use the handle on the top of the unit when you carry it.

• If you do not intend to use the unit for a long time, at least once every six months, charge the unit by connecting the AC adaptor, to protect the battery.

On placement

• Do not set the unit in an inclined position.

• Do not leave the unit in a location near heat sources, or in a place subject to direct sunlight, excessive dust, moisture, rain or mechanical shock.

• Do not place metal objects in front of the front panel. They may limit reception of radio waves.

• Do not place the system in a place where medical equipment is in use. It may cause a malfunction of medical equipment.

• If you use a pacemaker or other medical device, consult your physician or the manufacturer of your medical device before using the wireless LAN function.

On cleaning

• Wipe the unit using a soft cloth such as the cloths used for cleaning eye glasses, etc.

• Do not use alcohol, benzine, or thinner to clean the cabinet.

If the TV picture or monitor display is magnetically distorted

This speaker system is not magnetically shielded, and the picture on nearby TV sets may become magnetically distorted. In this situation, turn off the TV, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and turn it back on. If there is no improvement, move the speakers far away from the TV.

Abbreviation for Domain Name System. A server that translates domain names to IP addresses, or IP addresses to domain names. A

DNS is identified by an IP address. Also called a “DNS server.” x

IP address

IP addresses usually consist of four groups of up to three digits each, separated by a period

(such as 192.168.239.1). All devices on a network must have an IP address.

x

LAN

Abbreviation for Local Area Network.

LAN is a general name for networks set up for communication among devices including computers, printers, and fax machines in relatively small areas such as offices or buildings.

x

Network key (security key)

An encryption key used to limit the devices with which communication can occur. It is used to provide higher security for devices communicating via a wireless LAN router/ access point.

Proxy

A program or a server that provides Internet access to computers within a firewall or quicker downloading of web pages.

Router

A device that bridges networks, converting the protocols and addresses of each network.

When connecting multiple network devices to the Internet, a router is necessary. The term

“router” by itself may refer to any of these devices.

x

SSID

Abbreviation for Service Set IDentifier. It is a name that identifies a particular access point within an IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN. To connect with an access point, a client device must be set with the same SSID. SSIDs can be up to 32 characters long. For higher security, a network key is normally also used. In this case, connection cannot occur unless the SSID matches the network key.

x

WEP

Abbreviation for Wired Equivalent Privacy.

An encryption key used in wireless LAN networks. As an IEEE standard based on RC4 algorithm cryptography, WEP is used to secure IEEE 802.11b wireless networks.

During the transmission of a message between a wireless LAN access point and a client device, the sending side encrypts the data and the receiving side decrypts it. For communication to occur, both devices must use a common code key, which is called the

“WEP key.” The encryption level is indicated by the bit count of the key; e.g., 64 bits or 128 bits. The higher the bit count, the higher the security level.

WPA

Abbreviation for Wi-Fi Protected Access. An encryption standard for wireless LAN networks created by the Wi-Fi Alliance to remedy a number of serious security problems in the WEP system. In addition to the network name (SSID) and encryption key (WEP), this protocol uses a user authentication framework called “EAP” (Extensible Authentication

Protocol) and a protocol called “TKIP”

(Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) which automatically updates the encryption code at regular intervals for higher security.
