The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with using low power wireless devices. There is no
proof, however, that these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power Wireless devices emit low levels of radio frequency
energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to
low level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse health effects. Many studies of low level RF exposures have not
found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might occur, but such findings have not been confirmed
by additional research. The WD05740 has been tested and found to comply with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines on
radio frequency energy (RF) exposures. The maximum SAR levels tested for the WD05740 has been shown to be 0.563W/kg at body.
This device should not be co-located or operated with any other antenna or transmitter.

2. Wireless LAN Basics
Wireless LAN (Local Area Networks) systems offer a great number of advantages over a traditional,
wired system. Wireless LANs (WLANs) are more flexible, easier to setup and manage and often more
cost effective than their wired equivalence.
Using radio frequency (RF) technology, WLANs transmit and receive data over the air, minimizing the
need for wired connections. Thus, WLANs combine data connectivity with user mobility, and, through
simplified configuration, enable movable LANs.
With wireless LANs, users can access shared information without looking for a place to plug in and
network managers can set up or augment networks without installing or moving wires. Wireless LANs
offer the following productivity, convenience and cost advantages over traditional wired networks:
• Mobility - Wireless LAN systems can provide LAN users with access to real-time information
anywhere in their organization. This mobility supports productivity and service opportunities not
possible with wired networks.
• Installation Speed and Simplicity - Installing a wireless LAN system can be fast and easy and can
eliminate the need to pull cable through walls and ceilings.
• Installation Flexibility - Wireless technology allows the network to go where wires cannot go.
• Reduced Cost-of-Ownership - While the initial investment required for wireless LAN hardware
might be higher than the cost of wired LAN hardware, overall installation expenses and life-cycle
costs will be significantly lower. Long-term cost benefits are greatest in dynamic environments
requiring frequent moves, adds, and changes.
• Scalability - Wireless LAN systems can be configured in a variety of topologies to meet the needs
of specific applications and installations. Configurations are easily changed and range from peerto-peer to full infrastructure networks, also allow roaming over a broad area.

4.1 Link Status
This field is used to display the current status of connection. When the state shows “Connected to
SSID“means normal flow of operation in Infrastructure mode. The PC is connected to access
point. Networking is available.
A state of “Scanning” means that the node is searching for available access point and unable
detects the SSID for an available access point within range.
This field will also display an error message for some reason if the driver failed to initialize.
Network Type
Infrastructure Mode - The driver will scan all available channels continuously until it finds one or
more Access Points that matches its SSID. At that point it will try and authenticate and
associate with the Access Point.
Ad Hoc Mode - The driver will scan for 5 seconds looking for an existing Ad Hoc network
using the same SSID.
Current Channel and Transmit Rate
Shows the channel of the radio and transmit rate are being currently used for an active connection.
This value has no meaning when the radio is “Scanning”
Link Quality
The Link Quality bar graph is only active when the node is in Infrastructure Mode. The bar graph
displays the quality of the link between the node and Access Point. It summarizes the quality of
the link over the bar graph, which can take on one of the following values:
“Very Good”
Signal Strength
The Signal Strength bar graph is only active when the node is in Infrastructure Mode. The bar
graph displays normalized signal strength as reported by the radio, averaged over all frames over
100 bytes long that are received from the Access Point.

Network Type
This field allows you to select from a list of supported Network “Modes”. The modes displayed will
have two values: “Ad Hoc” and “Infrastructure”.
Ad Hoc - This is the 802.11 peer-to-peer mode of operation. In 802.11Ad Hoc only one wireless
“cell” is supported for each different SSID. All communication is done from Client to Client without
the use of an Access Point. 802.11 Ad Hoc networking uses the same SSID for establishing the
wireless connection.
Infrastructure - This mode of operation requires the presence of an 802.11 Access Point. All
communication is done via the Access Point, which relays packets to other wireless Clients in
the BSS as well as to nodes on a wired network such as Ethernet.
Transmit Rate – The transmission rate at which client of AP transmits the data packets. You may
set this to fixed 1Mbps, fixed 2 Mbps, fixed 5.5 Mbps or 11 Mbps.
Encryption (WEP) - You may desire an additional measure of security on your wireless network,
which can be achieved by using WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) encryption.
When an encrypted frame is received it will only be accepted if it decrypts correctly. This will only
happen if the receiver has the WEP Key used by the transmitter.
This panel allows to entry for 64/128-bit encryption according to WEP function select. To be
written to the driver and registry, such as Hexadecimal format, each key must consist of hex digits,
which means that only digit 0-9 and letters A-F are valid entries. If entered incorrectly program will
not write keys to a driver.

card, please check the following.
Check to see if your computer supports 3.3V Card.
Check to see if your computer has a free IRQ. If not, make an IRQ free by assigning the
same IRQ to some devices, for example COM 1; COM 2 can be assigned the same IRQ
Check that you have inserted the right card and have installed the proper driver.
Troubleshooting (Continued)
In Windows 2000:
Check the Windows 2000 Diagnostics. See if there is any conflict in the resource allocation or
the I/O Address, IRQ allocations. If you find that the IRQ or I/O Addresses are already assigned
to some other devices, you must change that value. I/O Address needs 40h byte length.
Go to the Control panel. Double click on the PCMCIA Card and you will see WLAN Adapter.
Double clicking on that will show you the Card Information, driver name and the driver file. You
must confirm the name of the driver and the driver file as "prismnic.inf" and "prismnds.sys". If
