Introduction

Pentagram horNET wireless network adapter is a powerful 32-bit PCI/USB Adapter that installs quickly and easily into PCs. The Adapter can be used in Ad-Hoc mode to connect directly with other cards for peer-to-peer file sharing or in Infrastructure mode to connect with a wireless access point or router for access to the Internet in your office or home network.

Pentagram horNET wireless PCI/USB adapter connects you with 802.11g networks at up to a

54Mbps. And for added versatility, it can also interoperate with all the up to 11Mbps 802.11b products found in homes, businesses, and public wireless hotspots around the country. And in either mode, your wireless communications are protected by industrial-strength WPA, so your data stays secure.

This Manual contains information on how to install and configure your wireless adapter to get your network started accessing the Internet. It will guide you through the correct configuration steps to get your device up and running.

Authentication :

• Open – With the Open method, every wireless station can request authentication.

• Shared – With Shared authentication, the station requesting authentication must provide a secret key (which can be obtained from the network administrator) using a secure channel (independent of the 802.11 wireless communications channel).

• LEAP – (Light Extensible Authentication Protocol) is an EAP authentication method used primarily on Cisco Aironet wireless networks. This protocol encrypts transmitted data using dynamically generated WEP keys, and supports two-way authentication.

• WPA and WPA2 – IEEE 802.1x protocol is used for authentication and AES or TKIP for encryption.

• WPA PSK and WPA2 PSK – Station requesting authentication must provide a WPA

Preshared Key. AES or TKIP are used for encryption.

Authentication: Open and Shared

Profile configuration – 8021X Tab

Settings on this Tab allow to configure IEEE 802.1x protocol. All information can be obtained from wireless network administrator. Appearance of this Tab depends on options selected from

EAP Method

and

Tunnel Authentication

lists.

• PEAP – Protect Extensible Authentication Protocol. PEAP transport securely authentication data by using tunneling between PEAP clients and an authentication server. PEAP can authenticate wireless LAN clients using only server-side certificates, thus simplifying the implementation and administration of a secure wireless LAN.

• TLS/Smart Card – Transport Layer Security. Provides for certificate-based and mutual authentication of the client and the network. It relies on client-side and server-side certificates to perform authentication and can be used to dynamically generate userbased and session-based WEP keys to secure subsequent communications between the

WLAN client and the access point.

• TTLS – Tunneled Transport Layer Security. This security method provides for certificatebased, mutual authentication of the client and network through an encrypted channel.

Unlike EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS requires only server-side certificates.

• EAP-FAST – Flexible Authentication via Secure Tunneling. It was developed by Cisco.

Instead of using a certificate, mutual authentication is achieved by means of a PAC

(Protected Access Credential) which can be managed dynamically by the authentication server. The PAC can be provisioned (distributed one time) to the client either manually or automatically. Manual provisioning is delivery to the client via disk or a secured network distribution method. Automatic provisioning is an in-band, over the air, distribution. For tunnel authentication, only support "Generic Token Card" authentication now.

• MD5-Challenge – Message Digest Challenge. Challenge is an EAP authentication type that provides base-level EAP support. It provides for only one-way authentication - there is no mutual authentication of wireless client and the network.

Troubleshooting

This chapter provides solutions to problems that may occur during the installation and operation of the Wireless PCI/USB Adapter. Read the descriptions below to solve your problems.

1. The Wireless PCI/USB Adapter does not work properly.

Reinsert the Wireless PCI/USB Adapter into your PC’s PCI / USB slot.

Right click on My Computer and select Properties. Select the device manager and click on the Network Adapter. You will find the Adapter if it is installed successfully.

If you see the yellow exclamation mark, the resources are conflicting. You will see the status of the Adapter. If there is a yellow question mark, please check the following:

Make sure that your PC has a free IRQ (Interrupt ReQuest, a hardware interrupt on a PC.)

Make sure that you have inserted the right adapter and installed the proper driver. If the Adapter does not function after attempting the above steps, remove the adapter and do the following:

Uninstall the driver software from your PC.

Restart your PC and repeat the hardware and software installation as specified in this User Guide.

2. I cannot communicate with the other computers linked via Ethernet in the

Infrastructure configuration.

Make sure that the PC to which the Adapter is associated is powered on.

Make sure that your Adapter is configured on the same channel and with the same security options as with the other computers in the Infrastructure configuration.

3. What should I do when the computer with the Adapter installed is unable to connect to the wireless network and/or the Internet?

Check that the LED indicators for the broadband modem are indicating normal activity. If not, there may be a problem with the broadband connection.

Check that the LED indicators on the wireless router are functioning properly. If not, check that the AC power and Ethernet cables are firmly connected.

Check that the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS settings are correctly entered for the network.

In Infrastructure mode, make sure the same Service Set Identifier (SSID) is specified on the settings for the wireless clients and access points.

In Ad-Hoc mode, both wireless clients will need to have the same SSID. Please note that it might be necessary to set up one client to esTablish a BSS (Basic Service

Set) and wait briefly before setting up other clients. This prevents several clients from trying to esTablish a BSS at the same time, which can result in multiple singular BSSs being esTablished, rather than a single BSS with multiple clients associated to it.

Check that the Network Connection for the wireless client is configured properly.

If Security is enabled, make sure that the correct encryption keys are entered on both the Adapter and the access point.
