Network Type
There are 3 network types for the 11Mbps Wireless LAN PCI Adapter to operate. If you need to
access company network or Internet via Access Point, select “Infrastructure”. To set up a group of
wireless stations for file and printer sharing, select “Pseudo AdHoc” or “802.11 AdHoc” (without
Access Point). If Pseudo Ad-Hoc (without access point) is selected, you need to set wireless
stations with the same channel. For 802.11 AdHoc, the same ESS ID is required to the
wireless stations.
-23-
ESSID
The ESS ID is the unique ID used by Access Points and stations to identify a wireless LAN. Wireless
clients associating to any Access Point must have the same ESSID. The default setting is ANY, which
allows your Wireless LAN PCI Adapter to automatically associate to any Access Point (Infrastructure
mode) in the vicinity of your wireless adapter. Alternatively, you may check the ESS ID check box
to specify the ESS ID. It will then attempt to associate with Access Points or stations with the same
ESS ID. The ESS ID can be set up to 32 characters and is case sensitive.
Check here before entering the ESS ID
If there two Access Points with the same ESSID, you may check the BSS ID check box and enter the
MAC address of the Access Point you desire to connect to.
Check here before entering the BSS ID
Transmit Rate
The 11Mbps Wireless LAN PCI Adapter provides various data rate options for you to select. Data
rates options include Fully Auto, 2 Mbps, 1 or 2 Mbps, 5.5 Mbps, and 11 Mbps. In most
networking scenarios, you will see that the factory-set default “Fully Auto” will prove the most efficient.
This setting will allow your 11Mbps Wireless LAN PCI Adapter to operate at the maximum data rate.
When the communications quality drops below a certain level, the PCI Card will automatically switch
to a lower data rate. Transmission at lower data speeds are usually more reliable. However, when
the communications quality improves again, the 11Mbps Wireless LAN PCI Adapter will gradually
increase the data rate again, until it has reached the highest available transmit rate.
-24-
WEP
To prevent unauthorized wireless stations from accessing data transmitted over the network, the
WLAN Utility offers highly secure data encryption, known as WEP, making your data transmission
over air more secure. To activate the WEP Encryption, check the WEP Enabled check box. An
Encryption window will then appear. The instructions are as follows:
Ø Pull down the Encryption (WEP) menu and select either 64bit or 128bit encryption method.
Ø Specify the encryption keys. There are two methods to set the WEP keys, as described below:
Create Encryption Keys by Using a Passphrase
To create encryption keys by using a passphrase, click the Create Key with Passphrase check
box and type a character string in the Passphrase field. As you type, the utility uses an algorithm
to generate 4 keys automatically. Select either the 64bit or 128bit encryption first, and type a
string in the Create Key with Passphrase field. Select one key from the 4 WEP keys and click
OK. Then click the Apply button on the Configuration tab to make the setting take effect.
Create Encryption Keys Using a Passphrase (128bit)
-25-
Create Encryption Keys Manually
You can also create encryption keys manually by clicking the Create Keys Manually check
box.
For 64bit encryption you may choose:
n Alphanumeric: 5 characters (case sensitive) ranging from “a-z”, “A-Z” and “0-9” (e.g.
MyKey)
n Hexadecimal: 10 hexadecimal digits in the range of “A-F”, “a-f” and “0-9” (e.g.
11AA22BB33)
For 128bit encryption you may choose:
n Alphanumeric: 13 characters (case sensitive) ranging from “a-z”, “A-Z” and “0-9” (e.g.
MyKey12345678)
n Hexadecimal: 26 hexadecimal digits in the range of “A-F”, “a-f” and “0-9” (e.g.
00112233445566778899AABBCC).
After entering the WEP keys in the key field, select one key as active key, click the OK button and
then click the Apply button on the Configuration tab to make the setting take effect.
Create Encryption Keys Manually (64bit)
Note: The WEP key must be set up exactly the same on the Wireless LAN stations as
they are on the wireless Access Points. If you set “MyKey” for the Wireless LAN PC
Card, the same WEP Key “MyKey” must be assigned to the Access Point or other
stations.
-26-
Advanced
The WLAN Utility also offers the advanced configuration for user to set the 11Mbps Wireless LAN
PCI Adapter under certain network environment. These advanced options include Power
Management, RTS/CTS and Fragmentation Threshold. To enable the advanced configuration, go to
the Configuration tab and click the Advance button.
Power Management
The Power Save option is designed to conserve battery life of you computer. When Power Save is
enabled, your 11Mbps Wireless LAN PCI Adapter will go into sleep mode to minimize power
consumption.
Note: When power saving mode is enabled, the Access Points you use need to
support power saving as well so that the communication can be established.
RTS Threshold
RTS Threshold is a mechanism implemented to prevent the “Hidden Node” problem. “Hidden
Node” is a situation in which two stations are within range of the same Access Point, but are not within
range of each other. The following figure illustrates an example of the “Hidden Node” problem.
Both stations (STA) are within range of the Access Point, however, they cannot hear each other.
Therefore, they are hidden nodes for each other. When a station starts data transmission with the
Access Point, it might not notice that the other station is already using the wireless medium. When
these two stations send data at the same time, they might collide when arriving simultaneously at the
Access Point. The collision will most certainly result in a loss of messages for both stations.
-27-
Thus, the RTS Threshold mechanism provides a solution to prevent data collisions. When you enable
RTS Threshold on a suspect “hidden station”, this station and its Access Point will use a Request to
Send/Clear to Send protocol (RTS/CTS). The station will send an RTS to the Access Point,
informing that it is going to transmit the data. Upon receipt, the Access Point will respond with a CTS
message to all station within its range to notify all other stations to defer transmission. It will also
confirm the requestor station that the Access Point has reserved it for the time-frame of the requested
transmission.
If the “Hidden Node” problem is an issue, please specify the packet size. The RTS mechanism will
be activated if the data size exceeds the value you set. It is highly recommended that you set the
value ranging from 0 to 1500. The default value is Disable.
Note: Enabling RTS Threshold would cause redundant network overhead that could
negatively affect the throughput performance instead of providing a remedy.
Frag. Threshold
Fragmentation mechanism is used for improving the efficiency when high traffic flows along in the
wireless network. If your 11Mbps Wireless LAN PCI Adapter often transmit large files in wireless
network, you can enable the Fragmentation Threshold by clicking the Enable button and the
mechanism will split the packet. The value can be set from 256 to 1500. The default value is
Disable.
IRQ NO./IO Address
To avoid device conflict, you may modify the IRQ No. and IO Address for your device (Only
available under Windows NT).
-28-
Status:
The Status field on the Configuration menu provides the following information.
State: When operating in Infrastructure mode, this field shows the MAC address of the Access Point
with which the Wireless LAN PCI Adapter is communicating. When operating in Ad-Hoc mode, it
shows the virtual MAC address used by computers participating in the Ad-Hoc network.
Current Channel: Shows the channel on which the connection is made.
Current Tx Rate: Shows the highest transmit rate of the current association.
Throughput: Shows the short term transmit and receive throughput in bytes/second, and is
continuously updated.
Link Quality: Based on the quality of the received signal of the Access Point beacon. There are 5
states of link quality:
100%~80%: Excellent link.
80%~60%: Good link quality.
60%~40%: Fair link quality.
Under 40%: Poor or no connection.
Signal Strength: Based on the received signal strength measurement of the baseband processor of the
Beacon signal. Same as link quality, there are 5 states of signal strength:
100%~80%: Excellent signal strength.
80%~60%: Good signal strength.
60%~40%: Fair signal strength.
Under 40%: Poor or no signal strength.
You can click the Rescan button to force the radio to rescan all available channels. If your link
quality or signal strength is poor, rescanning can be used to push the radio off a weak Access Point and
search for a better link with another Access Point.
-29-
Link Test:
The Link Test tool helps you examine data transmission quality between your 11Mbps Wireless LAN
PCI Adapter and any workstation on the network. By entering IP address of 2 remote station,
setting ping interval and packet size, you may know whether communication has been made
successfully or not. Additionally, you may run the loopback test by clicking the Look back button to
verify the communication quality between your wireless station and Access Point. The Refresh
button is used for setting the counters back to 0.
AP Browser:
By clicking the Rescan button, the AP Browser can display Access Points around the working
environment. Besides showing the ESSID of each Access Point, it also displays BSSID, Channel,
Signal, Quality and Supported Rates. To join any of the displayed Access Points, highlight the
Access Point you desire to connect and then click the Join BSS (when there are more than 2 Access
Points with the same ESSID), or Join ESS button to join the group.
-30-
Site Survey:
When the Site Survey screen is displayed, the channel quality of all 14 radio channels will be
displayed. These channel quality measurements are shown on each gauge for the 14 radio channels.
The blue bar indicated the channel quality is clear and good. The higher the blue bar is, the better
quality you have (i.e., less interference). The yellow bar indicates the channel quality is fair and the
red bar indicates the channel is busy or having severe interference.
About:
The About item shows the versions of the Wireless LAN Utility, driver, firmware of the 11Mbps
Wireless LAN PCI Adapter. Also, the MAC address and frequency domain are displayed.
