installation

Prior to connecting the Wireless G USB Adapter:

Uninstall any previously loaded versions of the driver and utility.

Install the software program from the CD. NOTE: The following Windows

XP procedure is similar for Windows 98SE/Me/2000/2003/Vista.

1.Insert the setup CD in the CD-ROM drive and run the setup program.

2.Read the license agreement that displays; click “Yes” to proceed.

3.In Windows XP, a “Microsoft (Windows) Zero Configuration Tool” option displays. It’s recommended that the alternative “Ralink Configuration

Tool” option be selected, as it features more functions. Click “Next.”

4.To run the adapter at a higher speed, select “Optimize for performance” to enable the Tx Burst mode. Otherwise, “Optimize for WiFi” sets the adapter to run with a standard wireless network. Click “Next.”

INSTALLATION

5.Once the software installation begins, a Setup Status screen is followed by a prompt to connect the Wireless G USB Adapter to your computer. The system automatically detects the adapter. NOTE: In Windows

Vista, a Found New

Hardware screen appears (above) when the adapter is connected. You can ignore the message, as it disappears once installation is complete.

6.When the Finish screen appears, click “Finish.”

configuration

The configuration utility — which displays automatically once the adapter is connected — is a powerful application that helps you configure the adapter and monitor link status and statistics during the communication process. This adapter will auto-connect to the wireless device that has the better signal strength and no wireless security setting.

CONFIGURATION

The configuration utility appears as an icon in the Windows system tray while the adapter is running. You can

open it by double-clicking on the icon.

In Windows XP, there is a “Windows Zero Configuration Tool” option for setting up wireless clients. If you prefer to use the configuration utility, there are two ways to switch to it instead of using the Windows tool.

Option 1

1.Right-click the utility icon in the system tray and select “Use

RaConfig as Configuration utility.”

Option 2

1.Right-click the icon on the left side

of the system tray and select “View Available Wireless Networks.”

2.Click “Change advanced settings.”

CONFIGURATION

3.Uncheck “Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings” to enable the utility for the adapter. NOTE: If

“Wireless Zero Configuration Tool” is enabled, you can only configure the advanced settings or check the link status and statistics from the configuration utility of the adapter.

NETWORK

When you open the configuration utility, the system scans all the channels to find access points/stations within the accessible range of the adapter and automatically connect to the wireless device with the highest signal strength. On the Network screen, all the networks nearby are listed.

You can change the connection to another network or add one of the networks to your own profile list.

CONFIGURATION

AvailableNetworks: This list shows all available wireless networks within the range of the adapter. It also displays network information: SSID,

BSSID, Signal Strength, Channel, Encryption, Authentication and Network Type. To connect to a network on the list, double-click the item and the adapter will connect automatically to it.

Rescan: Click “Rescan” to collect the new information of all the wireless networks nearby.

Connect: Click “Connect” to connect to the selected network.

Add to Profile: Click to add the selected network to the Profile list.

profile

The Profile screen is for managing networks you connect to frequently. You can add, delete, edit and activate a profile on this screen.

Profile List: The Profile List displays all the profiles and their related settings, including Profile Name, SSID, Channel, Authentication,

Encryption and Network Type.

Add, Edit, Delete: Click the corresponding button to add, edit or delete the selected profile(s). Clicking “Add” displays the Add Profile screen, which presents 1) Configuration and 2) Authentication and Encryption (Security).

Activate: To display status information about your current wireless connection, select the profile and click “Activate.” When a profile is activated, the adapter will be initially connected to it.
