Wireless LAN Radio Characteristics Radio characteristics of Wireless LAN cards may vary according to: ■ Country/region where the product was purchased ■ Type of product Wireless communication is often subject to local radio regulations. Although Wireless LAN wireless networking products have been designed for operation in the license-free 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band, local radio regulations may impose a number of limitations to the use of wireless communication equipment.
Subject to the radio regulations that apply in the countries/regions, your Wireless LAN module may support a different set of 5 GHz/2.4 GHz channels. Consult your Authorized Wireless LAN or TOSHIBA Sales office for information about the radio regulations that apply in the countries/regions.
Wireless LAN ■ In a Wireless LAN Access Point, the Wireless LAN module will use the factory-set default channel (printed in bold), unless the LAN Administrator selected a different channel when configuring the Wireless LAN Access Point device. 5 GHz Band Channels Sets (Wireless IEEE 802.11 Revision A and N) Frequency Range 5150-5850 MHz Channel ID...
