Only for models with wireless LAN
If you use a wireless LAN, you can use a network without cable connections.
Wireless LAN communication methods
• Infrastructure mode
For data transactions between two or more computers with wireless LAN functions,
using an access point
• Ad hoc mode
For direct data transactions between two computers with wireless LAN functions,
without using an access point
This computer supports IEEE802.11a/IEEE802.11b/IEEE802.11g.
• IEEE802.11a: A high-speed wireless LAN standard using a 5-GHz frequency band.
• IEEE802.11b: A wireless LAN standard using the 2.4-GHz frequency band.
• IEEE802.11g: A wireless LAN standard for an extended type of IEEE802.11b with high
compatibility and stability.
Communication is performed through the wireless LAN antenna (A). Do not block the
antenna area with your hand or otherwise interfere with the passage of the radio
Do not use the Fast User Switching function. The wireless LAN cannot be used.
The communication speeds and distances differ depending on the devices that
support the wireless LAN, the installation environment and other ambient conditions.
One characteristic of radio waves is that their transmission rate tends to drop as the
communication distance increases. It is recommended that the devices supporting the
wireless LAN be used in close vicinity to each other.
The rate may drop while a microwave oven is being used.
When using a wireless LAN in an environment that combines both IEEE802.11g and
IEEE802.11b, communication speed when using IEEE802.11g may decrease.
