Refer to P.4-7 “Configuring the Network Environment Settings for
Wireless LAN Network (WLAN)” for the basic uses of a wireless LAN.
Q1 The Wireless LAN device is operating properly, but I cannot
connect to the Internet or to another computer.
This is due to an inappropriate configuration. Check the following check lists:
A1 If you are using a computer-to-computer (Ad Hoc) network connection, check that
the name of the configured network (SSID) is correct. The network name (SSID) is
case sensitive.
A2 If you are using a network key (encryption key), you have to use the same network keys for an AP (Access Point) or a computer-to-computer network (Ad Hoc).
The network key of the AP is configured in the AP management program. Ask
your network administrator or AP manager for more detailed information.
A3 Check that the device driver is properly installed. If the driver is not properly
installed, you will find a yellow exclamation mark on the network icon by clicking

> Hardware tab > Device Manager > Network adapters >
Wireless LAN adapter. If there is a yellow exclamation mark, If a warning
message apears, install the driver again using the System Software Media.
A4 Referring to A2 of Q3, check that the network bridge configuration is correct.
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.
7-14 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.
If there is a Wireless LAN On/Off button, check if the wireless LAN button is
pressed.
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.
Install the AP in a high and open space 50cm from the wall and far removed
from any other radio signal sources.
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.
Chapter 7. Recovering the Computer
7-15
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.
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.
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
enabled.
A3 Initialize the device driver.
Click Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance >
System > Hardware tab > Device Manager > Network adapters,
and select the wireless LAN adapter. Right-click the network adaptor and select
'Disable' from the popup menu. Then right-click over the network adaptor and
select 'Enable' after a short wait to check that the device is operating properly.

This may happen when a third-party wireless network setup program (e.g.
PROSet) other than Windows XP default program is installed. For setting up a
wireless network using the Windows XP program, this option should be selected.
Q6 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 TCP/IP Settings are configured to DHCP, the address is automatically
configured to an address within the subnet IP range. This will take about 2~3
minutes.
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.
A fixed IP is recommended for a small-size network.
Q7 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.
Q8 Running Help file while running Profile Wizard in the wireless
