REGULATORY STATEMENTS
FCC Certification
The United States Federal Communication Commission (FCC) and the
Canadian Department of Communications have established certain rules
governing the use of electronic equipment.
Part15, Class B
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions:
1) This device may not cause harmful interface, and
2) This device must accept any interface received, including interface that may
cause undesired operation. This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the
FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment
generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy, and if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference
to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be
determined by turning off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
◗Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
◗Increase the distance between the equipment and receiver.
◗ Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to
which the receiver is connected.
CAUTION:
1) To comply with FCC RF exposure compliance requirements, a separation

remember to have the IP address for each computer set on the same
subnet mask. If your Broadband Router use DHCP technology, however, it
won’t be necessary for you to assign Static IP Address for your computer.
To configure a dynamic IP address (i.e.
if your broadband Router has the
DHCP technology), check the Obtain
an IP Address Automatically option.
To configure a fixed IP address (if you
broadband Router is not DHCP supported,
or when you need to assign a static IP
address), check the Use the following IP
address option. Then, enter an IP address
into the empty field, for example, enter
192.168.1.1 in the IP address field, and
255.255.255.0 for the Subnet Mask.

RTS/CTS
Threshold
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 you set.. The default
value is 2347.
This value should remain at its default setting of
2347. Should you encounter inconsistent data flow,
only minor modifications of this value are
recommended.

Saving Mode
Description
When this mode is selected, the power mode will
switch between CAM and Maximum Power-Saving
Mode depending on the volume of throughput. The
device driver checks the total bytes (only data frame)
every 4 seconds to decide the power mode. If the
total bytes sent exceed 10k bytes, the device driver
will choose “CAM”. If the total bytes are less than
10k bytes, however, the device driver will choose
“Maximum Power-Saving Mode”.
