Glossary

This is a comprehensive list of features and terms that appear in Dell manuals. Availability of these features depends
on the model you purchased.
A
Ad-Hoc Mode
The mode of operation in a wireless network, in which all devices (machines and computers) are connected without
an access point/router.
Address Book
Names and numbers you have stored for easy dialing.
Address Book List
A listing of names and numbers stored in the Address Book memory, in alphabetical order.
ADF (Automatic Document Feeder)
The document can be placed in the ADF and scanned one page at a time automatically.
AES
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is the Wi-Fi
AOSS™
AirStation One-Touch Secure System (AOSS™) is a system provided by Buffalo Technology. AOSS™ allows you to
configure a secure wireless connection with the push of a button.
APIPA
If you do not assign an IP address manually (using the control panel [for LCD models] of the machine) or
automatically (using a DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP server), the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol will
automatically assign an IP address from the range 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255.
APOP
Authenticated Post Office Protocol (APOP) expands POP3 (the Internet receiving protocol) to include an
authentication method that encrypts the password when the client receives email.
ARP
Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) performs mapping of an IP address to a MAC address in a TCP/IP network.
Authentication
Most wireless networks use some kind of security settings. These security settings define the authentication (how
the device identifies itself to the network) and encryption (how the data is encrypted as it is sent on the network). If
you do not correctly specify these options when you are configuring your Dell wireless machine, it will not be able to
connect to the wireless network. Therefore, care must be taken when configuring these options.
Authentication Methods for a Personal Wireless Network
A personal wireless network is a small network (such as a home wireless network) without IEEE 802.1x support.
• Open system
Wireless devices are allowed to access the network without any authentication.
• Shared key
A secret pre-determined key is shared by all devices that will access the wireless network. The Dell wireless
machine uses the WEP key as the pre-determined key.
-authorized strong encryption standard.
