Regulatory notes and statements

Wireless LAN, Health and Authorization for use

Radio frequency electromagnetic energy is emitted from Wireless LAN devices. The energy levels of these emissions however are far much less than the electromagnetic energy emissions from wireless devices like for example mobile phones. Wireless LAN devices are safe for use frequency safety standards and recommendations. The use of Wireless LAN devices may be restricted in some situations or environments for example:

·On board of airplanes, or

·In an explosive environment, or

·In case the interference risk to other devices or services is perceived or identified as harmful

In case the policy regarding the use of Wireless LAN devices in specific organizations or environments (e.g. airports, hospitals, chemical/oil/gas industrial plants, private buildings etc.) is not clear, please ask for authorization to use these devices prior to operating the equipment.

This device complies with Part 15 of FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

1.This device may not cause interference, and

2.This device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of this device.

FCC Radio Frequency Exposure statement

This Wireless LAN radio device has been evaluated under FCC Bulletin OET 64C and found compliant to the requirements as set forth in CFR 47 Sections 2.1091, 2.1093, and 15.247 (b) (4) addressing RF Exposure from radio frequency devices. The radiated output power of this Wireless LAN device is far below the FCC radio frequency exposure limits. Nevertheless, this device shall be used in such a manner that the potential for human contact during normal operation is minimized.

When nearby persons has to be kept to ensure RF exposure compliance, in order to comply with RF exposure limits established in the ANSI C95.1 standards, the distance between the antennas and the user should not be less than 20 cm.

FCC Interference Statement

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.

This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy. If not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, it may cause harmful interference to radio communications.

However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try and correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

1.Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

2.Increase the distance between the equipment and the receiver.

3.Connect the equipment to an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

4.Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

INTRODUCTION

Congratulations on your purchase of this IEEE 802.11b WLAN PCI Adapter.

This manual helps to get familiar with the WLAN PCI Adapter. This manual contains detailed instructions in operation of this product. Please keep this manual for future reference.

With a WLAN (IEEE 802.11b) PCI Adapter, a desktop computer or a station can communicate with another computer in a wireless way. Easy -to-useutilities are bundled with WLAN PCI Adapter for configuration, monitoring, and diagnosis purposes.

WLAN PCI Adapter can wirelessly transmit and receive data, minimizing the need for wired connections, at a speed of up to eleven megabit per second. With WLAN PCI Adapter, you can locate your desktop PC or station wherever you want without wires and cables.

WLAN PCI Adapter provides users with an access to real-timeinformation anywhere in their organization. The mobility provides productivity and service, which are not available under wired networks. The WLAN PCI Adapter configuration is easy to change frompeer-to-peernetworks, suitable for a small number of users, to full infrastructure networks of thousands of users that allow roaming around a broad area.
