Serial interface designed to enable you to "hot-swap" devices, i.e., by plugging and unplugging them
without turning off the power.
• WEP/WEP Key
An encryption method employed by IEEE 802.11. Shared security key used to encrypt and decrypt
data sent over wireless networks. This printer supports key length of 64 bits or 128 bits, key format of
ASCII code or Hexadecimal, and key number of 1 to 4.
International association that certifies interoperability of wireless LAN products based on the IEEE
This machine is a Wi-Fi authorized product.
• Wireless LAN
A network that, instead of being connected by physical wires, is connected by a wireless technology,
such as Wi-Fi.
• Wireless Router
A wireless transceiver or base station that receives information from wireless clients/the machine and
rebroadcasts it. Required in an infrastructure network.
Security framework announced by the Wi-Fi Alliance in October 2002. The security has been
strengthened more than WEP.
WPA defines the following authentication methods: WPA Personal that can be used without an
authentication server, plus WPA Enterprise that do require an authentication server.
This machine supports WPA Personal.
This encrypted key is used to perform WPA Personal authentication.
The passphrase should be a string of 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters or a 64-digit hexadecimal
Security framework released by the Wi-Fi Alliance in September 2004 as a later version of WPA.
Provides a stronger encryption mechanism through Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
WPA2 defines the following authentication methods: WPA2 Personal that can be used without an
authentication server, plus WPA2 Enterprise that do require an authentication server.
This machine supports WPA2 Personal.
