Section 2: Configure the Wireless Settings

To configure the wireless settings for the adapter, the following information must be known about the wireless
router that is set up on the network the WNA-100 is to going to be attached to. This information is unique to
each network. If necessary, contact the network System Administrator or the manufacturer of the wireless
