Status
State
Shows status information about the radio link, as shown in Figure 2-3-6
Figure 2-3-6
Associated BSSID
means the wireless client is connected to an access point. BSSID is shown in
the form of six hex digits which is the MAC address of the access point.
z
Scanning
means the wireless client is searching for an available access point in
infrastructure mode.
z
Disconnected
means there are no access points or other wireless clients (if communicating
in Ad-hoc mode), or the Mini-PCI Card is unplugged in your computer.

The operation radio frequency channel that wireless client is using in
infrastructure mode. In infrastructure mode, wireless client will always operate
in the same channel as their Access Point.
Throughput (Bytes/sec)
z Tx: shows the outgoing (sent) data speed.
z Rx: shows the incoming (received) data speed.
Link Quality
In infrastructure mode, this bar displays the transmission quality between a
WLAN station (Access Point) and Wireless LAN Mini-PCI Card. In
Peer-to-Peer mode (Ad-Hoc), this bar displays the link quality between two
Wireless LAN Mini-PCI Cards.
Signal Strength
This bar displays the signal strength level. The higher bar is, the more powerful
radio signal is received by the Mini-PCI Card.
Disable/Enable Radio
This button is used like a switch that allows users to turn off the wireless radio
by clicking this button and turn it on again.

The radio will rescan all available channels by pressing this button. You can
push this button to rescan the channels for better link quality when the link
quality is poor.
3. Configuration
Make configuration changes by specifying the proper configuration parameters
on this configuration tab as shown in Figure 2-3-7.
Figure 2-3-7
Profile
You can give a name for this field to a setting of configuration parameters, such
as Network Name, Network Type, Transmit Rate, Encryption (WEP Security),
etc. It makes much easier for users to change WLAN configuration settings
who need to switch working places frequently. Suppose that a user has to work
between the two different offices where there are different network settings. In
this case, this user just needs to setup two profiles for the two offices and
simply selects the proper profile when the user switches to the different office.
Network Name
For infrastructure mode, you need to type in the SSID of the access point to
which your computer connects. For Ad-Hoc (peer-to-peer) mode, you need to
17
type in the virtual SSID of the Ad-Hoc network to which your computer
attaches.
Network Type
There are two types of network modes in this drop-down list as shown in
Figure 2-3-8, Peer-to-Peer and Access Point (Infrastructure).
Figure 2-3-8
Peer to Peer: If two or more stations exchange data directly without an
access point, you need to select Peer-to-Peer mode. Each station in a
Peer-to-Peer (Ad-Hoc) network must specify the same network name
(SSID) and peer-to-peer channel.
z Access Point: If at least one access point involves in the
communications in a group of stations, you need to select Infrastructure
mode. Each station needs to specify the same network name (SSID) as
the access point. Please refer to the section 1-6 for more details about
peer-to-peer mode and Access Point (infrastructure) mode.
z
Peer-to-Peer Channel
This option is just for Peer-to-Peer (Ad-Hoc) mode. You need to specify a
channel on which the communications are established. Each station in a
Peer-to-Peer (Ad-Hoc) network must specify the same channel and
network type (SSID).
Power Save Enabled
Select Power Save Enabled item to conserve more battery energy and
extend the battery life. When this function is enabled, the Mini-PCI Card will
be set in sleep mode between beacons.
Transmit Rate
The transmission rate on which the data packets are transmitted by the client
can be specified in this drop-down list as shown in Figure 2-3-9. Below are
the available transmission rates.
Full Automatic :

Encryption
Encryption is designed to make the data transmission more secure. you can
select 64 or 128-bit WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) key to encrypt data
(Default setting is Disable) as shown in Figure 2-3-10. WEP encrypts each
frame transmitted from the radio using one of the Keys from this panel. When
you use WEP to communicate with the other wireless clients, all the wireless
devices in this network must have the same encryption key or passphrase.
Choose one of the encryption key (64 bit or 128bit) from the Encryption (WEP
Security) drop-down list to create encryption key. Click either on Create Keys
Manually radio button or on Create Keys with Passphrase radio button.
There are two ways, Alphanumeric and Hexadecimal, to set the different
characters as shown in Table 2-3-3.

Chapter 4 Troubleshooting
This chapter describes the problems and corresponding solutions that may
occur when installing a Mini-PCI Card.
Symptom
Solution
Verify that the Mini-PCI Card is properly
inserted into the Mini-PCI Card slot.
Windows does not
detect the Mini-PCI
Card when
installed.
Driver fails to load
Check whether the computer has a
Plug and Play BIOS.
Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP might not
detect the Mini-PCI Card if a previous
installation of the Mini-PCI Card was
cancelled before it was finished.
Remove the previous driver, and redo
the installation again.
A resource conflict could exist.
For Windows 95/98/ME/2000, use the
Device Manager to resolve resource
conflicts.
Select System from the Control Panel, then
click on the Device Manager tab.
A device conflict under Windows
95/98/ME/2000/XP may be related to
the Mini-PCI Card.
Device conflict on a
Windows system
For Windows 95/98/ME/2000, use the
Computer properties to identify the
used I/O port addresses and IRQ
values.
If there is a device conflict, select
alternative settings for I/O Base Address or
IRQ values. If you know which device
is conflicting with the Mini-PCI Card, you have
the option of changing that device’s I/O
address or IRQ instead of changing the
Mini-PCI Card.
27
No resource conflicts
were detected, but
the wireless station
does not attach to the
network
Verify that the SSID of the Mini-PCI Card
matches that of the access point. Use
the Network Configuration Properties
Application in the Control Panel to
modify the SSID.
Verify that the Network Mode of the
Mini-PCI Card is configured correctly.
