Configuration - Encryption The Encryption page allows you to set up the encryption settings for your WLAN adapter For data confidentiality in a wireless environment, IEEE 802... 11 specifies a Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) algorithm to offer transmission privacy similar to wired network... WEP uses keys to encrypt data packets sent and decrypt data packets received... The encryption process can scramble frame bits to avoid disclosure to others... Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an improved security system for 802... 11 that encrypts data sent over radio waves... WPA is developed to overcome the weakness of the WEP protocol...

Fragmentation Threshold (256-2346) - Fragmentation is used to divide 802... 11 frames into smaller pieces (fragments) that are sent separately to the destination... Enable fragmentation by setting a specific packet size threshold... If there is an excessive number of collisions on the WLAN , experiment with different fragmentation values to increase the reliability of frame transmissions... The default value (2346) is recommended for normal use...

COFDM (for 802... 11a or 802... 11g) Signal power alone is not enough to maintain 802... 11b-like distances in an 802... 11a/g environment... To compensate, a new physical-layer encoding technology was designed that departs from the traditional direct-sequence technology being deployed today... This technology is called COFDM (coded OFDM)... COFDM was developed specifically for indoor wireless use and offers performance much superior to that of spread-spectrum solutions... COFDM works by breaking one high-speed data carrier into several lowerspeed subcarriers, which are then transmitted in parallel... Each high-speed carrier is 20MHz wide and is broken up into 52 subchannels, each approximately 300KHz wide... COFDM uses 48 of these subchannels for data, while the remaining four are used for error correction... COFDM delivers higher data rates and a high degree of multipath reflection recovery, thanks to its encoding scheme and error correction...

This algorithm is established by IEEE 802... 11b specifications... The bit redundancy within the chipping sequence enables the receiving wireless mobile client to recreate the original data pattern, even if bits in the chipping sequence are corrupted by interference... The ratio of chips per bit is called the spreading ratio... A high spreading ratio increases the resistance of the signal to interference... A low spreading ratio increases the bandwidth available to the user... The wireless device uses a constant chip rate of 11Mchips/s for all data rates, but uses different modulation schemes to encode more bits per chip at the higher data rates... The wireless device is capable of an 11 Mbps data transmission rate, but the coverage area is less than a 1 or 2 Mbps wireless device since coverage area decreases as bandwidth increases...

64-bit and 40-bit WEP keys use the same encryption method and can interoperate on wireless networks... This lower level of WEP encryption uses a 40-bit (10 hexadecimal digits assigned by the user) secret key and a 24-bit Initialization Vector assigned by the device... 104-bit and 128-bit WEP keys use the same encryption method...

IEEE 802... 11 IEEE 802... xx is a set of specifications for LANs from the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE)... Most wired networks conform to 802... 3, the specification for CSMA/CD based Ethernet networks or 802... 5, the specification for token ring networks... 802... 11 defines the standard for wireless LANs encompassing three incompatible (non-interoperable) technologies: Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS), Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS), and Infrared... 802... 11 specifies a carrier sense media access control and physical layer specifications for 1 and 2 Mbps wireless LANs...

Compared with 802... 11g: 802... 11a is a standard for access points and radio NICs that is ahead of 802... 11g in the market by about six months... 802... 11a operates in the 5GHz frequency band with twelve separate non-overlapping channels... As a result, you can have up to twelve access points set to different channels in the same area without them interfering with each other... This makes access point channel assignment much easier and significantly increases the throughput the wireless LAN can deliver within a given area... In addition, RF interference is much less likely because of the less-crowded 5GHz band...

NAT (Network Address Translation) NAT masks a local networks group of IP addresses from the external network, allowing a local network of computers to share a single ISP account... This process allows all of the computers on your home network to use one IP address... This will enable access to the Internet from any computer on your home network without having to purchase more IP addresses from your ISP...

PCMCIA (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association) The Personal Computer Memory Card International Association (PCMCIA), develops standards for PC cards, formerly known as PCMCIA cards... These cards are available in three types, and are about the same length and width as credit cards... However, the different width of the cards ranges in thickness from 3... 3 mm (Type I) to 5... 0 mm (Type II) to 10... 5 mm (Type III)... These cards can be used for various functions, including memory storage, land line modems and wireless modems...

SSID (Service Set Identifier) SSID is a group name shared by every member of a wireless network... Only client PCs with the same SSID are allowed to establish a connection... Enabling the Response to Broadcast SSID requests option allows the device to broadcast its SSID in a wireless network... This allows other wireless devices to scan and establish communication with the device... Unchecking this option hides the SSID to prevent other wireless devices from recognizing and connecting to the device...

WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is an improved security system for 802... 11... It is part of the 802... 11i draft security standard... WPA encompasses TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) along with MIC (Message Integrity Check) and other fixes to WEP such as Weak IV (Initialization Vector) filtering and Random IV generation... TKIP uses 802... 1x to deploy and change temporary keys as opposed to static WEP keys once used in the past... It is a significant improvement over WEP... WPA is part of a complete security solution... WPA also requires authentication servers in enterprise security solutions...
