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 the equipment 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 separation between the equipment and receiver.

✿ Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

✿ Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

WARNING: Only peripherals complying with the FCC class B limits may be attached to this equipment. Operation with non-compliant peripherals or peripherals not recommended by Toshiba is likely to result in interference to radio and TV reception. Shielded cables must be used between the external devices and the computer’s USB ports, external monitor port, PS/2 keyboard port and PS/2 mouse port.

Changes or modifications made to this equipment, not expressly approved by Toshiba or parties authorized by Toshiba could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

Wireless Interoperability

The Toshiba Wireless LAN Mini PCI Card products are designed to be interoperable with any wireless LAN product that is based on Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) radio technology, and is compliant to:

■ The IEEE 802.11 Standard on Wireless LANs (Revision B), as defined and approved by the Institute of

Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

■ The Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) certification as defined by the WECA Wireless Ethernet Compatibility

Alliance.

Wireless LAN and your Health

Wireless LAN products, like other radio devices, emit radio frequency electromagnetic energy.

The level of energy emitted by Wireless LAN devices however is far much less than the electromagnetic energy emitted by wireless devices like for example mobile phones.

Because Wireless LAN products operate within the guidelines found in radio frequency safety standards and

recommendations, Toshiba believes Wireless LAN is safe for use by consumers.

These standards and recommendations reflect the consensus of the scientific community and result from deliberations of panels and committees of scientists who continually review and interpret the extensive research literature.

In some situations or environments, the use of Wireless LAN may be restricted by the proprietor of the building or responsible representatives of the organization. These situations may for example include:

■ Using the Wireless LAN equipment on board of airplanes, or

■ In any other environment where the risk of interference to other devices or services is perceived or identified as harmful.

If your are uncertain of the policy that applies on the use of wireless devices in a specific organization or environment (e.g. airports), you are encouraged to ask for authorization to use the Wireless LAN device prior to turning on the equipment.

Regulatory Information
