Display Related
Q1 The LCD screen is blank.
A Adjust the LCD screen brightness. Use the <Fn> + <
>, <Fn> + <
> keys.
Q2 The screen saver disturbs screen viewing during Media Player or
video file operation.
A Under the Media Player Options, in Player > Enable Screen Saver During Use,
uncheck the box and restart the player.
Q3 When the horizontal or vertical span function is used, connecting
an external monitor with a screen resolution lower than LCD
resolution in Windows XP or 2000, the screen image is not displayed on the external monitor.
A The horizontal or vertical span mode does not support a screen resolution lower
than the LCD resolution.
Set the screen resolution to higher than or equal to LCD resolution.
Q4 Running the program after configuring the horizontal or vertical
span mode displays a program window spanned to the LCD and
the external display device.
A Since Dual View (Extended Desktop) mode enables each display device to operate as if there were two separate graphics cards, you can select the screen resolution and color quality for each display device. Therefore dual view mode displays a program window on either the LCD or the external monitor, while the
horizontal or vertical span mode may display a program window onto the LCD
and the external monitor because the horizontal or vertical span mode displays a
single screen image spanned over two display devices.
Q5 In DOS mode, changing the full screen DOS mode by pressing
ALT+Enter key displays a broken image for a short period.
A The DOS mode which supports 2 Byte characters such as Korean and Japanese
runs in graphic not in text mode. In this case, a broken image may be displayed
while changing the video mode settings.

Q6 In the following cases, the screen blinks or displays noise for a
short time:
(Clicking the nView tab, changing the resolution, changing the display device,
removing the AC adapter, restarting the system, or changing the PowerMizer
level)
A This may happen while the video driver is examining the connected device.
Q7 When I connect a projector, and change the setting to display
screen image on both the LCD and the projector by pressing
<Fn>+<F4 / LCD/CRT> keys, screen is not displayed properly.
A Press <Fn>+<F4 / LCD/CRT> keys once again.
Q8 The desktop momentarily appears as a broken image when
zooming in or out of the Media Player screen when Media
Player is running.
A Since zooming in or out of the Media Player screen changes the screen resolution, the desktop may momentarily appear as a 'broken image' during this operation.
Q9 Execution of a DOS command such as DIR causes the desktop to
momentarily appear as a broken image when using the system
in 2-byte character language DOS mode.
A This may happen when you have configured the display in such a way that the
screen is displayed to both the LCD and CRT screens simultaneously. To avoid
this, configure the screen as either LCD or CRT. (See “Using External Display
Devices” (p.6-8).)
Q10 The 'Turn off monitor' function configured in the Power
Management does not work while using the system in full
screen DOS mode.
A The 'Turn off monitor' function may not work in full screen DOS mode. (See

Q2 The signal strength is excellent, but I cannot connect to the network.
Even if the signal strength is excellent, the network connection may not operate
properly if the TCP/IP properties are not properly configured, or the network key
(encryption key) is incorrect.
A1 Check that the TCP/IP properties are configured properly. When you connect to
an AP, click the Wireless Network Connection icon ( ) on the taskbar
and select the Support tab. If the IP is not allocated properly, the IP address will
be displayed as follows. (e.g. 169.254.xxx.xxx)
If the network does not provide DHCP, you have to specify the correct IP address
by asking your network administrator.
Even if the network provides DHCP, the server may not allocate an IP address to
the client properly, and the client station cannot connect to the network.
A2 Referring to A2 of Q1, check that the network key is correct.
A3 Referring to Q4, check that AP is operating properly.
7-16 SAMSUNG X10 Plus / X15 Plus / X30 Manual
Q3 I cannot share an Internet connection.
A1 It may require some time to synchronize the computers to share an Internet connection after the Internet connection sharing configuration is completed. If you
cannot share Internet connection even after a longer period, restart the computer.
A2 Check if the connection between the network adapters is configured to bridge.
If there is a configured bridge connection between the network adapters through
the network configuration wizard, remove the network bridge, and reconfigure
the Internet connection sharing.
A bridge connection is created when you ran Network Setup Wizard from the
[Network Connections] window, and selected both the internal connection
adapter and another adapter in the wizard.
Q4 I cannot connect to the AP.
Check the Computer Settings
A1 Verify whether the wireless LAN function of the computer is on by doing the following. If the wireless LAN function is off, turn it on.
For Windows XP, verify that the wireless network connection has been set to
“Enable” in Start > Control Panel > Network Connections.
When a wireless LAN button is present, verify that the wireless LAN button has
been switched on. (Refer to “Hot Keys” (P.XX).)
A2 Verify whether the same network key (encryption key) has been entered in both
the AP and the computer.
The network key is an encryption key for encrypting data transmitted between the
AP and the computer. It is recommended setting the network key manually.
Check the AP Settings
For the AP settings, refer to the User’s Guide provided by the AP manufacturer.
A3 Verify whether the environment is suitable for using a wireless LAN.
The use of a wireless LAN may be restricted according to the environment and
distance. Obstacles such as walls or doors affect the use of a wireless LAN.
Please install the AP in a high and open location, which is far from the interference of other electric waves.
Chapter 7. Recovering the Computer
7-17
A4 Verify whether the AP is operating properly.
When the AP is not operating normally, turn off the AP and after a short while
turn it on again.
Verify whether the AP’s firmware is the most recent version. (Contact the AP
manufacturer or the place where you purchased the AP for details of the AP
firmware.)
A5 Verify whether the AP has been properly connected to the network.
Verify whether the network is operating normally by connecting the wired network cable, which has been connected to the AP, to your computer.
A6 Check the network key settings (encryption key).
When automatic code conversion (a passphrase function) has been selected and
data communication is not functioning even with a normal wireless connection, it
is recommended entering the network key (encryption key) manually.
A7 Check the AP settings as follows. (The following is recommended for a standard
environment and thus may differ according to the specific wireless network environment.)
When several APs are present simultaneously, check the channel setting for each
AP. When different APs are using nearby channels, interference may occur
between electronic waves. Set the APs’ channels further apart from each other.
(Ex: Ch1, Ch5, Ch9, Ch13)
When an AP’s SSID (Service Set ID) option is set to “Hide”, you cannot search for
that AP on the computer. We recommend canceling the “Hide” option for an AP.
The SSID is a name for distinguishing one wireless LAN from another wireless
LAN.
It is recommended using Long Preamble. Preamble is a signal for data transmission synchronization. Short Preamble may be supported by some types of APs
but may cause compatibility problems.
It is recommended using a static IP.
Since static channel selection is more reliable than auto channel selection, it is recommended setting a static channel.
7-18 SAMSUNG X10 Plus / X15 Plus / X30 Manual
Q5 In the Windows XP ‘Available wireless networks’ window, the
Wireless Network Connection is displayed as ‘Not Available’.
A1 When there is a Wireless LAN button, ensure that the Wireless LAN button is
turned on. (Refer to ”Hot Keys” (P. 1-17))
A2 Check if there is additional program for a wireless LAN connection installed.
Windows XP supports wireless LAN connections through the Wireless Zero
Configuration (WZC) service. Therefore, an additional program for wireless LAN
connection is not required, unless the network requires a specific program.
However, installation of some wireless LAN related programs may sometimes disable the [View Available Wireless Networks] window supported by WZC service.
Exit the wireless LAN related program then check whether the window is

Q7 When connecting to a computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network, I
cannot connect to another computer connected to the same computer-to-computer network.
A1 Make sure that the security settings and network name of the computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network is correct.
A2 Check the TCP/IP properties of the computers to be connected through the computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network. All of the computers to be connected
through a computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network should be configured so that
their IP addresses are within the same subnet range.
- If the IP address is configured to DHCP (Obtain an IP address automatically) in
TCP/IP properties, IP address is configured within the same subnet range automatically.
- If the IP address is configured to static IP in TCP/IP properties, select Use the
following IP address in the TCP/IP properties of the wireless adapter, configure IP address:10.0.0.1~10.0.0.254, and Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0,
and then try again.
Q8 When using a computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network, sometimes I cannot search the access point.
A It may happen occasionally when you are using a computer-to-computer (Ad
Hoc) network connection. Even if you cannot find some access points, the computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network is operating properly. Click Refresh to view
the latest search result.
Q9 Running Help file while running Profile Wizard in the wireless

Q10 The network does not operate properly when both the wireless
and the wired network connections are simultaneously configured with the same IP address.
A You cannot use the wireless and the wired network connections using the same IP
address simultaneously. To use either the wireless or the wired network in turn
with the same IP address, you have to Disable whichever network device will not
be using in the network connection of the Control Panel.
Q11 The wireless LAN does not operate properly when there are
other products operating in the 2.4GHz band.
A1 Since IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.11g equipment uses a common frequency or
the ISM band, channel interference may occur when a wireless video transceiver
or a microwave oven is being used. If you experience channel interference from
other equipment, it is recommended changing the channel to connect to the AP.
A2 IEEE802.11g equipment operates in hybrid mode when there is active
IEEE802.11b equipment. This may result in data rate degradation.
Q12 An established wireless LAN connection is disconnected after
2~3 minutes, and the connection is not recovered.
A1 This may be caused by channel interference. Change the channel of the AP, and
reconnect.
A2 This may be caused by selecting the ‘Use IEEE 802.1x network authentication’
option when IEEE 802.1x authentication is not available.
Check the properties of the AP in the wireless network settings. If the ‘Use IEEE
802.1x authentication in this network’ option is selected, deselect the option on
the Authentication tab.
For more detailed information about authentication server, ask your network
administrator.
A3 If the AP is configured to ‘Use network authentication (Shared Key)’
If the AP is configured to authentication shared mode, all computers to be connected should be configured as follows:
If you are using Windows XP, select network authentication(shared mode) in the
wireless network settings.
Click Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections >
Network Connections. Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon,
and click View Available Wireless Networks > Advanced. In the
Wireless Networks tab, select an AP in the Available Networks field and click
Configure and select Network Authentication (Shared Mode).
Chapter 7. Recovering the Computer
7-21
If you are using Windows 2000, check that the network authentication mode is
configured to Share in the security settings of the wireless LAN program
(PROSet).
For more network authentication procedures, ask your AP (Access Point) administrator.
A4 For a model with an installed 2100 11b card, remove the security patch
(Q815485) if it is installed.
The WPA Q815485 patch provided by Microsoft can be used only when there is
802.11x, RADIUS, or an authentication server as well as an AP and a driver that
supports the function. The current version of the driver does not support the WPA
function. Click Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Add or
Remove Programs and remove the Q815485 patch if it is installed.
Q13 After PROSet is installed, The “AEGIS Protocol (IEEE 802.1x)
v2.2.1.0” appears in the [Local Area Connection Properties]
window.
A The AEGIS Protocol is a security authentication protocol that is automatically
installed when PROSet is installed and does not affect the operation of other programs.
