1. Introduction
The SYNTEK STA-UI-A0035 product provides the highest level of integration
and most aggressive BOM cost by integrating IEEE 802.11b/g and Bluetooth v2.0 +
EDR into a single MAC/Baseband chip utilizing a single 2.4GHz transceiver.
Integrated on-chip power amplifier and LNA reduce external component count,
while still able to deliver ample transmit power for most applications.
Different from any other wireless LAN and Bluetooth chip set vendor, SYNTEK and
3DSP uses its patented Software Radio technology to implement both wireless LAN
and Bluetooth in software. The highly optimized software radio DSP technology
enables STA-UI-A0035 to integrate class 1 Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR function
without any added cost to the total solution. No extra antenna, PA, RF transceiver,
resistor, capacitor, crystal or any components are needed. The software solution
even guarantees the Bluetooth RF performance if the wireless LAN performance is
tested to be good. It eliminates the need for system manufacturers to separately
test the module’s Bluetooth RF performance, therefore reduce the testing time and
cost.
The STA-UI-A0035 utilizes 3DSP’s patent pending technologies to fundamentally
solve the interference and performance issues existed during 802.11b/g and
Bluetooth coexistence, thus improving both 802.11b/g and Bluetooth performance
and link stability in real environment. As a result, it enhances user experience in a
totally wireless environment, where all devices are connected wirelessly through
either Bluetooth link or 802.11b/g link.
The single installation package allows for easy setup and configuration of both
802.11b/g and Bluetooth devices. Combined user interface is intuitive to use. Once
configured, both wireless links operate transparently in the background.

Single Access Point Network
In a small environment, you can set up a wireless network using a single Access Point
and one or more Wireless USB dongle. This type of network provides a coverage area
sufficient to satisfy the network requirements for many homes and small businesses.
The Access Point connects your network computers to an existing network. Once this
“infrastructure” is in place, you can easily add computers to the network by simply
configuring the Wireless USB Dongle in those computers. This eliminates the time
and expense of running costly cables throughout your network. Notebook users are
now free to roam from office to conference room or from kitchen to outdoor patio.
To create a single Access Point network, the Access Point must be connected to a
router and a cable modem or a DSL modem. This connection lets the wireless network
access the wired network in your home or office and the Internet. Position the Access
Point in the center of your network. If you experience a weak signal or no signal at all
from an outer computer, move the computer with the Wireless USB Dongle closer to
the Access Point or position the Access Point closer to the computer.
Many manufacturers now offer wireless routers, which combine the Access Point and
router in one box. Note that the Access Point and USB Dongles must have the same
security settings to communicate. The Wireless USB dongle supports all types of
Access Points, including 802.11b and 802.11g.

Multiple Access Point Network
In a large environment, you can set up a wireless network using multiple Access
Points and thereby create a large coverage area. In such a network, computers with
Wireless USB Dongles that “roam” between different locations within the network
area will be served by the various Access Points and maintain the same network
connection. Roaming wireless stations in a multiple Access Point network will
automatically switch between Access Points when necessary.
To create a multiple Access Point network, the Access Points must be connected by
way of a wired backbone. Access Points must overlap to ensure complete connection
coverage for the roaming client. Note that all the Access Points and USB Dongles
must have the same security settings to communicate.
The Wireless USB Dongle supports roaming between all types of Access Points,
including 802.11b and 802.11g.

Setting Up a Peer-to-Peer Network
A Peer-to-Peer Network consists of two or more notebook or desktop computers with
Wireless USB Dongles that communicate directly to each other without the use of an
Access Point. Such networks are usually small but they can be very useful.
Co-workers can quickly set up a Peer-to-Peer group in a temporary environment. If
there is a printer nearby that is equipped with a wireless device, the members of the
Peer-to-Peer group can send print files to that printer. In addition, if one member of
the group is connected to an Infrastructure Network (one that uses an Access Point),
all the members of the Peer-to-Peer group can access network storage devices and the
Internet, provided that their computers have been set up with the necessary software.
In wireless-LAN literature, Peer-to-Peer Networks is sometimes referred to as Ad Hoc
Networks. Both terms mean exactly the same thing. The original term was Ad Hoc
(from the Latin “to this”). Ad hoc means done or set up solely in response to a
particular situation or problem. Because of the vagueness introduced by the Latin
term, some manufacturers have been using the more descriptive term “Peer-to-Peer”.
Peer-to-Peer Networks are used far less widely than Infrastructure Networks. Perhaps
that is because users have not learned the simple steps to set up a Peer-to-Peer
Network. One person in the group has to create a profile with a Network Name (SSID)
and other simple settings. After you create the profile, you can communicate that
Network Name (SSID) to the other people in your group. They will see the Network
Name on their Site Survey screen and connect to the network. These are the steps that
the first person, the person who is creating the network, must do on the Connection
Profile screen.
1. Enter a unique Profile Name and Network Name (SSID).
2. Select the Peer-to-Peer radio button.
3. In the Network Type pull-down menu, select the network type that matches all the

4. Establish the Privacy settings that all the computers in the network will be using.
Remember that if you need to enable encryption in your network, the other computers
in the network will need the encryption key.
To share an Internet connection, you will need to purchase Internet Sharing Software
or use the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) utility provided with Windows XP.

Wireless Performance Considerations
Many factors determine the range, coverage, and transmission rate of wireless
components (Access Points and Wireless USB Dongle). Be aware of the following:
—
—
—
—
When a radio signal travels through building materials such as walls, floors,
concrete, and metal framing, its strength is reduced. The best performance is
achieved when wireless components are in direct line-of-sight with one
another. A wall may be six inches thick, but if two wireless components
form an acute angle to the wall, the wall may appear to be three feet thick to
the radio wave.
Place wireless components away from cordless telephones, microwave
ovens, printers, and monitors. Cordless telephones and other devices that
operate in the 5 GHz frequency range can interfere with wireless
transmission. The 2.4 GHz spectrum might be occupied by microwave
ovens, cordless telephones, and Bluetooth devices.
Increasing the distance between wireless components significantly
decreases the number of successfully transmitted packets. If you are far
away from your Access Point, you cannot expect to have the same
transmission rate as someone who is near the same Access Point.
Your actual data throughput will always be less than the data rate of the
device (54 Mbps or 11 Mbps). In addition to the considerations listed
above, the data throughput is less because some of the available bandwidth
is used to send control messages and to regulate the wireless traffic. After
your dongle receives data, the computer processor and operating system that
you are using can cause a further delay in the display of that data.

WiFi Security Considerations
Transmitting data via radio waves presents real security risks. Someone within your
wireless network range could, with a fair amount of effort, access your network and
the data you transmit. You might have heard about the white vans that drive slowly
through neighborhoods and capture account numbers and passwords. Eavesdropping
on computer networks (a.k.a. “sniffing”) requires costly equipment and it is therefore
unlikely that your neighbor is a real threat.
If you want to ensure the security of your data, wireless LAN technology provides
different means to that end. WLAN security standards have progressed from WEP to
TKIP to WPA and AES. Each stage in this progression provides users with more
protection than the previous stage. Using the same type of security standard
throughout the network is a necessity. You cannot configure a profile using WPA and
expect to communicate with an Access Point using WEP.
For those who want an effective security feature, the STA-UI-A0035 802.11b/g and
Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR Combo USB Dongle support the Wired Equivalent Privacy
(WEP) security standard. This feature uses a network key called a WEP key, which
encrypts data so that it is only readable by other computers that have a matching WEP
key. The WEP key must be entered and stored on each wireless device in the network.
You cannot configure a profile using one WEP key and expect to communicate with
an Access Point using a different WEP key. Assigning WEP keys in a large
environment can be problematic for the system administrator. If an employee leaves
your company, new WEP keys should be assigned to protect the network from the
former employee who knows the secret key.

8. Troubleshooting
This section provides solutions to problems that can may occur when trying to use the
STA-UI-A0035 802.11b/g and Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR Combo USB Dongle.
Q1. The computer does not recognize the STA-UI-A0035 802.11b/g and
Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR Combo USB Dongle.
A1. Verify that the Wireless USB Dongle is properly inserted into the computer’s USB
port. If the problem still exists, please reinstall the driver.
Q2. The computer with the STA-UI-A0035 802.11b/g and Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR
Combo USB Dongle is unable to connect to the wireless network.
A2.1 In Infrastructure mode, make sure that the exact same Network Name (SSID)
exists on the Wireless USB Dongle Site Survey Screen and on the Access Point settings
screen.
A2.2 In Peer-to-Peer mode, all computers in the network must have the exact same
Network Name (SSID).
A2.3 On the Connection Profile Screen, verify that the Wireless Mode is set correctly
on all computers. It must be Access Point if an Access Point is used or Peer-to-Peer if
an Access Point is not used.
A2.4 If Enable Encryption is checked, verify that the encryption keys entered in your
profile are the same as the encryption keys on the other network computers.
Q3. The STA-UI-A0035 802.11b/g and Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR Combo USB Dongle
are draining my battery’s life.

A3. Any wireless adapter will shorten your battery’s life to some extent. Heavy
network activity (Transmitting and receiving lots of data) will drain your battery
much more than if the USB dongle is in idle mode. To get the best energy efficiency, go
to the Connection Profile Screen and check Enable Power Saving.
Q4. When I want to install a new version of the software, I have to uninstall the
older version. But when I do it, it always asks me for the location of the
wlcard50.sys file.
A previous installation did not cleanly remove its driver and INF file. Click ‘Cancel’
to allow the current uninstallation to complete. Then do the following steps to remove
any leftover INF file(s):
A4.1 Open a My Computer view of the files in your Windows \INF folder.
z This folder is hidden when Windows is installed. To make it visible,
click on the \Windows directory, and then select “Folder Options…”
from the “Tools” menu. Select the “View” tab, select “Show hidden
files and folders”, and click “OK”. Then click on the INF folder to see
the contents.
A4.2 Make a backup copy of the INF folder before continuing, and follow the
procedure very carefully. Your system may become unusable if you delete INF files for
devices other than the 3DSP Wireless LAN.
A4.3 Click the “Search” button in the toolbar, and select “All files and folders”.
Enter *.INF for the file name, and “3d5b” for the text to search for in the file, and
then click “Search”.
A4.4 For all matching files found, delete both the .INF and the corresponding PNF
files. Repeat for all *.INF files that are found to contain “3d5b”. For example, if
oem6.inf is found to contain “3d5b”, delete oem6.inf and oem6.pnf.
A4.5 Reboot the machine and follow the normal installation procedure.
Q6. I upgrade my driver from V2.1 to V2.2 and use 2.2 version’s uninstallation
shortcut to uninstall driver and utilities, but c:\Program Files\3DSP folder still

exists after uninstallation.
A6. If you use v2.2’s 3DSP Wireless LAN uninstallation shortcut or running setup.exe
to uninstall and your machine has the previous released v2.1CD installed, a
wlancfgdlg.ico and its 3DSP folder will exist after uninstallation. You can manually
remove 3DSP folder under program files after the driver uninstallation.
This problem will not exist if you use v2.2CD and later version to upgrade or remove
programs.
If your machine has the previously released version 2.1 installed, it is recommended
to use Add\Remove Programs to uninstall the driver and manually remove c:\program
files\3DSP folder before upgrading to version 2.2. You don’t need to do this step in the
future driver upgrading.
Q7. I’ve plugged in the USB dongle before running setup.exe, but I am still asked
to attach the device at the end of the installation.
A7. If you plug in the USB Dongle before running setup.exe and this is your first time
installing driver on a machine, you will be asked to attach the device at the end of the
installation. The installation will continue and complete if you remove the device and
plug it back in.
There won't be a problem if it is a driver upgrade. The installation program can detect
the USB Dongle. You do not need to remove the USB Dongle and plug it back in.
Q8. My PC is Microsoft Windows XP SP2, why I can’t make connection with the
AP Router which encryption is WPA2-AES or WPA2-TKIP?
A8. It’s because the Microsoft XP SP2 original version is not support the Wireless
WPA2. It needs a hotfix pack (KB903357) to solve this problem. In the driver install
CD, there are the hotfix files in the folder (Microsoft WPA2 hotfix for XP Service
Pack2). We put the English, Simple Chinese and Traditional Chinese version on it. If
your environment is different languages, please download it form Microsoft and
install.
