The Monitor Tab
1. Operating Mode
Shows the current wireless mode the Adapter is operating in. There are two
operating modes: Infrastructure and 802.11 Ad-Hoc. Choose infrastructure
mode when connecting your PC to a Belkin Wireless Network Access Point
or to a Belkin Wireless Cable/DSL Gateway Router. To change the mode,
click "Modify" then click the down facing arrow next to the operating mode
field. Select the mode you wish to use. To apply the change, click "Apply".

12
Using the Belkin Wireless USB Adapter Manager
4. TxRate
Displays the current rate of data transmission. There are five rate
speeds possible:
Fixed 11Mbps—Always transmit and receive at 11Mbps data rate
regardless of signal quality
Fixed 5.5Mbps—Always transmit and receive at 5.5Mbps data rate
regardless of signal quality
Fixed 2Mbps—Always transmit and receive at 2Mbps data rate
regardless of signal quality
Fixed 1Mbps—Always transmit and receive at 1Mbps data rate
regardless of signal quality
Auto—Adjust speed according to signal strength. This mode is the
recommended setting. It will decrease the amount of transmit and
receive errors by reducing the speed of transmission in favor of receiving
error free data. Note that data being sent at 11Mbps with low signal
quality will not necessarily get the data to the computer faster. This is
because when errors occur, the data must be re-sent. When the signal
quality is low, the chances for errors to occur at high speeds are greatly
increased. Sending the data at lower speeds when the signal quality is
low, will reduce the chances of errors, and thus data will get to the
computer in the shortest possible time.
5. Status
Displays the BSSID (in hexadecimal) of the access point with which the
Adapter is associated.
6. Signal Strength
Displays the strength of the wireless signal.
13

disabled, 64-bit when 64-bit
encryption is enabled, and 128-bit
when 128-bit encryption is enabled
6. BSS
Displays the mode that the access
point is operating in: Infrastructure or AD-Hoc
To check the area for more access points, click "Re-Scan".
To exit, click "Cancel “.

The Encryption Tab
Select “64-bit” from the drop-down menu.
You will notice when using 64-bit
encryption there are four keys labeled "Key
1" through "Key 4". Only one key can be
used at a time. Keys can be entered
manually, but for ease-of-use, the software
can generate keys using a "passphrase" that
you enter. This passphrase can be easily
distributed to wireless-equipped computer
users in your network. For instance,
creating a key using the passphrase
"Passphrase" generates four keys in 64-bit
encryption mode and one key in 128-bit
encryption mode. A user of a laptop needs only to enter the passphrase and
the key number into their computer’s wireless management software to be able
to communicate while using encryption. All computers on the network must
use the same encryption rate and passphrase. The passphrase can be changed
as often as desired.
