A name of a wireless LAN configuration. This type of communication uses an access point. Another type of communication is called Ad Hoc.

IP Address

An identifier for a computer or device on a TCP/IP network. Networks using the TCP/IP protocol route messages based on the IP address of the destination. The format of an IP address is a 32-bit numeric address written as four numbers separated by periods. Each number can be zero to 255. For example, could be an IP address.

Within an isolated network, you can assign IP addresses at random as long as each is unique. However, connecting a private network to the Internet requires using registered IP addresses (called Internet addresses) to avoid duplicates.

The four numbers in an IP address are used in different ways to identify a particular network and a host on that network. Three regional Internet registries -- ARIN, RIPE NCC and APNIC -- assign Internet addresses from the following three classes.

Class A - supports 16 million hosts on each of 126 networks

Class B - supports 65,000 hosts on each of 16,000 networks

Class C - supports 254 hosts on each of 2 million networks

The number of unassigned Internet addresses is running out, so a new classless scheme called CIDR is gradually replacing the system based on classes A, B, and C and is tied to adoption of IPv6.

MAC Address

Media Access Control Address. A unique physical address of a network card. For Ethernet, the first three bytes are used as the vendor code, controlled and assigned by IEEE. The remaining three bytes are controlled by each vendor

(preventing overlap), therefore, every Ethernet card is given a unique physical address in the world, being assigned with a different address from other cards. For Ethernet, frames are sent and received based on this address.


Megabyte. One million bytes.

Megahertz / MHz

1,000,000 cycles per second.


A repository for data and applications which is readily accessible to your LIFEBOOK notebook’s CPU.


A system using one channel to process sound from all sources.


Maximum Transmission Unit

112 -

Network key

Data that is used for encrypting data in data communication. The personal computer uses the same network key both for data encryption and decryption, therefore, it is necessary to set the same network key as the other side of communication.

Network name (SSID: Service Set Identifier)

When a wireless LAN network is configured, grouping is performed to avoid interference or data theft. This grouping is performed with “Network name (SSID)”. In order to improve security, the network key is set allowing no communication unless “Network name (SSID)” coincides with the network key.


National TV Standards Commission. The standard for TV broadcast and reception for the USA.

Open system authentication

Null authentication method specified in the 802.11 standard that performs no authentication checks on a wireless client before allowing it to associate.

Operating System

A group of control programs that convert application commands, including driver programs, into the form required by a specific model of microprocessor in order to produce the desired results from that particular equipment.


A block of space on a hard drive which is set aside and made to appear to the operating system as if it were a separate disk, and addressed by the operating system accordingly.


PCMCIA is a trademark of the Personal Computer Memory Card International Association. The Personal Computer

Memory Card International Association is an organization that sets standards for add-in cards for personal computers.

113 -

Pitch (keyboard)

The distance between the centers of the letter keys of a keyboard.


The smallest element of a display, a dot of color on your display screen. The more pixels per area the clearer your image will appear.


Power On Self Test. A program which is part of the BIOS which checks the configuration and operating condition of your hardware whenever power is applied to your notebook. Status and error messages may be displayed before the operating system is loaded. If the self test detects failures that are so serious that operation can not continue, the operating system will not be loaded.


Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet. A protocol for Ethernet, using a Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), which is used for connection on the phone line.


An integrated set of coded commands to your computers telling your hardware what to do and how and when to do it.

RAM Module

A printed circuit card with memory and associated circuitry which allows the user to add additional memory to the computer without special tools.

114 -

Reset / Restart

The act of reloading the operating system. A reset erases all information stored in RAM.


To proceed after interruption. In your notebook this refers to returning to active operation after having been in one of the suspension states.


Read Only Memory. A form of memory in which information is stored by physically altering the material. Data stored in this way can not be changed by your notebook and does not require power to maintain it.


Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory.

Shared key authentication

802.11 network authentication method in which the AP sends the client device a challenge text packet that the client must then encrypt with the correct WEP key and return to the AP. If the client has the wrong key or no key, authentication will fail and the client will not be allowed to associate with the AP. Shared key authentication is not considered secure, because a hacker who detects both the clear-text challenge and the same challenge encrypted with a WEP key can decipher the key.


Service Set Identifier, a 32-character unique identifier attached to the header of packets sent over a WLAN that acts as a password when a mobile device tries to connect to the BSS. The SSID differentiates one WLAN from another, so all access points and all devices attempting to connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. A device will not be permitted to join the BSS unless it can provide the unique SSID. Because the SSID is broadcast in plain text, it does not supply any security to the network.


To make inoperative for a period of time. Your LIFEBOOK notebook uses various suspension states to reduce power consumption and prolong the charge of your battery.

115 -
