LE-LAN devices shall contain instructions related to the restrictions mentioned in the above sections, namely that:

1. the device for operation in the band 5150–5250 MHz is only for indoor use to reduce the potential for harmful interference to co-channel mobile satellite systems;

2. for devices with detachable antenna(s), the maximum antenna gain permitted for devices in the bands 5250-5350 MHz and 5470-5725 MHz shall be such that the equipment still complies with the e.i.r.p. limit;

3. for devices with detachable antenna(s), the maximum antenna gain permitted for devices in the band 5725-5850 MHz shall be such that the equipment still complies with the e.i.r.p. limits specified for point-to-point and non-point-to-point operation as appropriate; and

4. the worst-case tilt angle(s) necessary to remain compliant with the e.i.r.p. elevation mask requirement set forth in Section 6.2.2(3) of RSS-247 shall be clearly indicated.

The maximum conducted output power shall not exceed 250 mW or 11 + 10 log

10

B, dBm, whichever is less. The power spectral density shall not exceed 11 dBm in any 1.0 MHz band.

The maximum e.i.r.p. shall not exceed 1.0 W or 17 + 10 log

10

B, dBm, whichever is less. B is the 99% emission bandwidth in megahertz. Note that devices with a maximum e.i.r.p. greater than 500 mW shall implement TPC in order to have the capability to operate at least 6 dB below the maximum permitted e.i.r.p. of 1 W.

2) Unwanted emission limits i) For devices with both operating frequencies and channel bandwidths contained within the band

5250-5350 MHz, the device shall comply with the following: a. All emissions outside the band 5250-5350 MHz shall not exceed -27 dBm/MHz e.i.r.p. if the equipment is intended for outdoor use; or

IV

b. All emissions outside the band 5150-5350 MHz shall not exceed -27 dBm/MHz e.i.r.p. and any emissions within the band 5150-5250 MHz shall meet the power spectral density limits of

Section 6.2.1

of RSS-247. The device shall be labelled “for indoor use only.” ii) For devices with operating frequencies in the band 5250-5350 MHz but having a channel bandwidth that overlaps the band 5150-5250 MHz, the devices’ unwanted emission shall not exceed

-27 dBm/MHz e.i.r.p. outside the band 5150-5350 MHz and its power shall comply with the spectral power density for operation within the band 5150-5250 MHz. The device shall be labelled “for indoor use only.”

3) Additional requirements

In addition to the above requirements, devices operating in the band 5250-5350 MHz with a maximum e.i.r.p. greater than 200 mW shall comply with the following e.i.r.p. at different elevations, where θ is the angle above the local horizontal plane (of the Earth) as shown below:

1. -13 dBW/MHz for 0° ≤ θ < 8°

2. -

13 − 0.716 (θ-8) dBW/MHz for 8° ≤ θ < 40°

3. -

35.9 − 1.22 (θ-40) dBW/MHz for 40° ≤ θ ≤ 45°

4. -42 dBW/MHz for θ > 45°

The measurement procedure defined in Annex A of RSS-247 shall be used to verify the compliance to the e.i.r.p. at different elevations.

Users should also be advised that high-power radars are allocated as primary users (i.e. priority users) of the bands 5250-5350 MHz and 5650-5850 MHz and that these radars could cause interference and/or damage to LE-LAN devices.

Digital Transmission Systems (DTSs)

DTSs include systems that employ digital modulation techniques resulting in spectral characteristics similar to direct sequence systems. The following applies to the bands 902-928 MHz and 2400-2483.5

MHz.

(1) The minimum 6 dB bandwidth shall be 500 kHz.

(2) The transmitter power spectral density conducted from the transmitter to the antenna shall not be greater than 8 dBm in any 3 kHz band during any time interval of continuous transmission. This power spectral density shall be determined in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.4(4), (i.e. the power spectral density shall be determined using the same method as is used to determine the conducted output power).

For DTSs employing digital modulation techniques operating in the bands 902-928 MHz and

2400-2483.5 MHz, the maximum peak conducted output power shall not exceed 1W. Except as provided in Section 5.4(5), the e.i.r.p. shall not exceed 4 W.

As an alternative to a peak power measurement, compliance can be based on a measurement of the maximum conducted output power. The maximum conducted output power is the total transmit power delivered to all antennas and antenna elements, averaged across all symbols in the signalling alphabet when the transmitter is operating at its maximum power control level. Power must be summed across all antennas and antenna elements. The average must not include any time intervals during which the transmitter is off or transmitting at a reduced power level. If multiple modes of operation are

V

implemented, the maximum conducted output power is the highest total transmit power occurring in any mode.

(5) Fixed point-to-point systems in the bands 2400-2483.5 MHz and 5725-5850 MHz are permitted to have an e.i.r.p. higher than 4 W provided that the higher e.i.r.p. is achieved by employing higher gain directional antennas and not higher transmitter output powers. Point-to-multipoint systems,2 omnidirectional applications and multiple co-located transmitters transmitting the same information are prohibited from exceeding an e.i.r.p. of 4 W.

(6) Transmitters may operate in the band 2400-2483.5 MHz, employing antenna systems that emit multiple directional beams simultaneously or sequentially, for the purpose of directing signals to individual receivers or to groups of receivers, provided that the emissions comply with the following:

(i) Different information must be transmitted to each receiver.

(ii) If the transmitter employs an antenna system that emits multiple directional beams, but does not emit multiple directional beams simultaneously, the total output power conducted to the array or arrays that comprise the device (i.e. the sum of the power supplied to all antennas, antenna elements, staves, etc., and summed across all carriers or frequency channels) shall not exceed the applicable output power limit specified in sections 5.4(2) and 5.4(4). However, the total conducted output power shall be reduced by 1 dB below the specified limits for each 3 dB that the directional gain of the antenna/antenna array exceeds 6 dBi. The directional antenna gain shall be computed as the sum of

10 log (number of array elements or staves) plus the directional gain of the element or stave having the highest gain.

(iii) If a transmitter employs an antenna that operates simultaneously on multiple directional beams using the same or different frequency channels, the power supplied to each emission beam is subject to the applicable power limit specified in sections 5.4(2) and 5.4(4). If transmitted beams overlap, the power shall be reduced to ensure that their aggregate power does not exceed the applicable limit specified in sections 5.4(2) and 5.4(4). In addition, the aggregate power transmitted simultaneously on all beams shall not exceed the applicable limit specified in sections 5.4(2) and 5.4(4) by more than 8 dB.

(iv) Transmitters that transmit a single directional beam shall operate under the provisions of sections

5.4(2), 5.4(4) and 5.4(5).

5.5 Unwanted Emissions

In any 100 kHz bandwidth outside the frequency band in which the spread spectrum or digitally modulated device is operating, the RF power that is produced shall be at least 20 dB below that in the

100 kHz bandwidth within the band that contains the highest level of the desired power, based on either an RF conducted or a radiated measurement, provided that the transmitter demonstrates compliance with the peak conducted power limits. If the transmitter complies with the conducted power limits based on the use of root-mean-square averaging over a time interval, as permitted under Section

5.4(4), the attenuation required shall be 30 dB instead of 20 dB. Attenuation below the general field strength limits specified in RSS-Gen is not required.

Appendix A: Troubleshooting

If you find the AP is working improperly or stop responding to you, please read this troubleshooting first before contacting the dealer for help. Some problems can be solved by yourself within a very short time.

Scenario Solution

The AP is not responding to me when I want to access it by Web browser. a. Please check the connection of the power cord and the

Ethernet cable of this AP. All cords and cables should be correctly and firmly inserted to the AP. b. If all LED on this AP is off, please check the status of power adapter, and make sure it is correctly powered. c. You must use the same IP address section which AP uses. d. Are you using MAC or IP address filter? Try to connect the AP by another computer and see if it works; if not, please reset the AP to the factory default settings

(pressing ‘reset’ button for over 7 seconds). e. If you did a firmware upgrade and this happens, contact your dealer of purchase for help. f. If all the solutions above don’t work, contact the dealer for help.

I can’t get connected to the

Internet. a. Go to ‘Status’ -> ‘Internet Connection’ menu on the router connected to the AP, and check Internet connection status. b. Please be patient, sometimes Internet is just that slow. c. If you’ve connected a computer to Internet directly before, try to do that again, and check if you can get connected to Internet with your computer directly attached to the device provided by your Internet service provider. d. Check PPPoE / L2TP / PPTP user ID and password entered in the router’s settings again. e. Call your Internet service provider and check if there’s something wrong with their service. f. If you just can’t connect to one or more website, but you can still use other internet services, please check

URL/Keyword filter. g. Try to reset the AP and try again later. h. Reset the device provided by your Internet service provider too. i. Try to use IP address instead of host name. If you can use IP address to communicate with a remote server, but can’t use host name, please check DNS setting.

-112-

I can’t locate my AP by my a. ‘Broadcast ESSID’ set to off? wireless device. b. Both two antennas are properly secured. c. Are you too far from your AP? Try to get closer. d. Please remember that you have to input ESSID on your wireless client manually, if ESSID broadcast is disabled.

File downloading is very slow or breaks frequently. a. Are you using QoS function? Try to disable it and try again. b. Internet is slow sometimes. Please be patient. c. Try to reset the AP and see if it’s better after that. d. Try to know what computers do on your local network. If someone’s transferring big files, other people will think

Internet is really slow. e. If this never happens before, call you Internet service provider to know if there is something wrong with their network.

I can’t log into the web management interface; the password is wrong.

The AP becomes hot a. Make sure you’re connecting to the correct IP address of the AP! b. Password is case-sensitive. Make sure the ‘Caps Lock’ light is not illuminated. c. If you really forget the password, do a hard reset. a. This is not a malfunction, if you can keep your hand on the AP’s case. b. If you smell something wrong or see the smoke coming out from AP or A/C power adapter, please disconnect the AP and power source from utility power (make sure it’s safe before you’re doing this!), and call your dealer of purchase for help.

802.11ac

- 802.11ac is a wireless networking

standard in the

802.11

family (which is marketed under the brand name Wi-Fi), developed in the IEEE Standards Association process, providing high-throughput wireless local area networks

(WLANs) on the

5 GHz band

.

802.11n - 802.11n builds upon previous 802.11 standards by adding MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output). MIMO uses multiple transmitter and receiver antennas to allow for increased data throughput via spatial multiplexing and increased range by exploiting the spatial diversity, perhaps through coding schemes like Alamouti coding. The Enhanced Wireless Consortium (EWC) [3] was formed to help accelerate the IEEE 802.11n development process and promote a technology specification for interoperability of next-generation wireless local area networking (WLAN) products.

802.11a

-

802.11a was an amendment to the IEEE 802.11 wireless local network specifications that defined requirements for an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) communication system. It was originally designed to support wireless communication in the unlicensed national information infrastructure (U-NII) bands (in the 5–6 GHz frequency range) as regulated in the United

States by the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 47, Section 15.407.

802.11b - The 802.11b standard specifies a wireless networking at 11 Mbps using direct-sequence spread-spectrum (DSSS) technology and operating in the unlicensed radio spectrum at 2.4GHz, and

WEP encryption for security. 802.11b networks are also referred to as Wi-Fi networks.

802.11g - specification for wireless networking at 54 Mbps using direct-sequence spread-spectrum

(DSSS) technology, using OFDM modulation and operating in the unlicensed radio spectrum at

2.4GHz, and backward compatibility with IEEE 802.11b devices, and WEP encryption for security.

SSID - A Service Set Identification is a thirty-two character (maximum) alphanumeric key identifying a wireless local area network. For the wireless devices in a network to communicate with each other, all devices must be configured with the same SSID. This is typically the configuration parameter for a wireless PC card. It corresponds to the ESSID in the wireless Access Point and to the wireless network name.

WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) - A data privacy mechanism based on a 64-bit or 128-bit or 152-bit shared key algorithm, as described in the IEEE 802.11 standard.

Wi-Fi - A trade name for the 802.11b wireless networking standard, given by the Wireless Ethernet

Compatibility Alliance (WECA, see http://www.wi-fi.net), an industry standards group promoting interoperability among 802.11b devices.
