1.3 Wireless Networking Scenarios
As our 802.11b WLAN USB Adapter is interoperable and compatible with other IEEE
802.11b compliant products from other manufacturers, it offers you the most freedom
to establish your ideal wireless network. Therefore, after installing 802.11b WLAN
USB Adapter, you can connect your computer to:
a. A Peer-to-Peer Workgroup of IEEE802.11b compliant wireless devices.
b. A LAN (Local Area Network) constructed by Access Point(s) or other
IEEE802.11b compliant systems.
c. Share your Internet access by using just one connection, share printers and other
peripheral devices, share data and image files between networked PCs, play
multi-player games, and use other network enabled sharing resources.
7
A. Peer-to-Peer Networking:
An Ad Hoc Network could be easily set up with some PCs and this 802.11b
WLAN USB Adapter or our other WLAN devices. Therefore, it is very suitable
to build a network for temporary use, such as for demonstration in exhibition, for
new sales point/branch use and alike.
B. Cooperate LAN (Local Area Networking):
With some 802.11b WLAN USB Adapters and Access Points, it is easy to
construct a LAN with access to the Internet for corporate/business use.
The construction is quite easy, the 802.11b WLAN USB Adapter and Access Point
will automatically work at the most suitable frequency when your Access Point is
correctly configured.
In addition, most manufacturers will bundle the Site-Survey tool for users to
check their connection strength and quality.

1.4 Advantages for Using Wireless Network
The Mini WLAN USB Adapter can wirelessly transmit and receive data, minimizing
the need for wired connections, at speeds up to eleven megabits per second. With the
802.11b WLAN USB Adapter you can locate computers on your network anywhere
without wires and cables.
The 802.11b WLAN USB Adapter provides LAN users with access to real-time
information anywhere in their organization. The versatility of wireless devices
provides freedom and productivity to users which would not be available under wired
networks.
The Mini WLAN USB Adapter configuration is easy to switch between peer-to-peer
networks, suitable for a small number of users, and full infrastructure networks of
thousands of users that allow roaming around a broad area.
Therefore, you may see many advantages for adopting Wireless Networking as
follows:
Less Space Limits: The 802.11b WLAN USB Adapter provides access to network
services without wires; therefore, it gives you more freedom to allocate and style
-
your living and working space. In addition, in some areas where is hard or
expensive to connect to wired networks, such as historic buildings, classrooms or
mobile connectivity, then you can count on wireless networking.
Flexible Workgroups and Lower Cost: For workspaces that are frequently
reconfigured for temporarily use such as demo in exhibitions, wireless
networking is easy to set up of lower total cost—and all equipments are
recyclable. You do not have to remove the old wires and then build up the new
ones again and again.
-
-
-
Networked Conference Rooms: Users can access the network as they move from
a meeting to another, getting the access to information/data and the ability to
communicate decisions while “on the go”.
Ad Hoc Networking: On site consulting and small workgroups may increase
productivity with quick network setup and collaboration software.
Branch office Networking: With an Access Point to bridge between the LAN and
Internet, wireless networking provides an easy to install, use and maintain
network for a remote or sales office.
Campus-Wide Network Mobility: The roaming capabilities allow enterprise to set
up easy to use wireless networks that cover the entire campus transparently.
