spacing to prevent interference by the encoded information.
“Short GI” shortens this interval to enable sending of more
information.
802.11g Protection
Sets whether 802.11g protection is used.
If 802.11g protection is used, communication by 11g standard
devices can be given priority even in environments where 11g
standard and 11b standard wireless LAN devices coexist.
This option is not available in 802.11a.
802.11n Protection
Sets whether 802.11n protection is used.
If 802.11n protection is used, collisions and other adverse effects on
performance can be reduced even in environments where devices
using previous standards (11a, 11b, 11g) coexist.
DTIM Period
Sets the interval that the AirStation sends information about
power management to the wireless device. Larger values reduce
the number of chances by the wireless device to obtain the
information, and so while this enables reduced power consumption
by the wireless device, it also results in a slower response.
This setting is ignored if the power management setting in the
wireless device (computer) is not enabled.
RTS Threshold
This performs a RTS/CTS process before sending frames with a size
that exceeds the threshold value. This enables improved reliability
in frame transfer when the surrounding environment is poor, where
separated from the AirStation by considerable distance, or other
adverse conditions.
Fragment Threshold
This breaks up sending frames with a size that exceeds the
threshold value before sending them. This enables improved
reliability in frame transfer when the surrounding environment is
poor, when separated from the AirStation by considerable distance,
or other adverse conditions.

Specifies the interval for confirming whether the AirStation is
connected to the connected wireless device.
Normally, this setting can be used at the default value (60), but in
some wireless devices, setting a larger value enables more stable
communication and reduced power consumption.
When set to 0, the connection is not confirmed by the AirStation,
but in environments where a large unspecified number of wireless
devices are connected, a new wireless device may be unable to
make a connection.

Parameter
Meaning
SM Power Save
This function enables reduced power consumption in devices
when communicating with 11n standard wireless devices that have
two or more transmission systems (11n2x or later).
If “Enabled (Static)” is selected, communication with the AirStation
always uses one transmission system. Because power does not
need to be supplied to other transmission systems, this enables
maximum power efficiency.
If “Enabled (Dynamic)” is selected, the AirStation can request the
receiving wireless device to use the second or later transmission
system if needed. Unless it is needed, power does not need to be
supplied to more than one transmission system, and this enables
the providing of both high-speed communication and power
saving.

Parameter
Meaning
CWmin, CWmax
This sets the maximum and minimum values of the contention
window. The contention window is used in the frame collision
avoidance mechanism that is performed in IEEE802.11, and
generally, smaller values in the window result in a higher likelihood
that the queue will obtain sending rights.
Aifsn
Sets the frame sending interval. The units are slots (same as
window value defined in CWmin and CWmax). Smaller frame
sending intervals enable earlier start times for the backoff
algorithm, and so this results in a higher priority for the queue.
Txop
This shows the time that can be assigned when the queue obtains
sending rights. One unit is 32 ms. Longer times enables the transfer
of more frames by the sending rights obtained at one time, but this
also harms the realtime responsiveness of other queues.
