Wireless Connectivity

Introduction

 

The SpeedTouch™570 features a Wireless LAN Access Point which behaves as a hub

 

and allows wireless connectivity between several devices and the local (W)LAN and -

 

via the SpeedTouch™570 DSL router - to the public network, e.g. the Internet.

 

WLAN technology enables these devices to communicate with each other in a locally

 

mobile fashion, without the need for a wired environment.

Wireless basics

 

The WLAN's 'radio' link is a shared medium. As no physical connection exists between

 

the SpeedTouch™570 and wireless clients, a name must be given to allow unique identi-

 

fication of your WLAN radio link. This is done by the Service Set ID (SSID). Wireless

 

clients must be part of this SSID environment in order to be able to communicate with

 

other clients on the (W)LAN - including the SpeedTouch™570 .

 

The IEEE802.11b standard for WLANs allows several WLAN networks using different

 

radio channels to be co-located. Several channels are available for use which are associ-

 

ated to a slightly different frequency in the allowed range. The SpeedTouch™570

 

supports operation on all allowed channels and is able to select the best radio channel

 

at each start-up.

Wireless security

 

Since the SpeedTouch™570 (W)LAN environment is a radio environment, precautions

 

must be taken to ensure that your wireless network is safe from malicious intruders. In

 

addition to providing the possibility of giving a personalized SSID name to the wireless

 

network, the SpeedTouch™570 features a physical registration mechanism, an Access

 

Control List (ACL) and enhanced Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) 64or 128-bits

 

encryption to secure your network and to control wireless client access.

Wireless client

 

Only WLAN client adapters compliant to IEEE802.11b DSSS, will be able to communi-

requirements

cate with the SpeedTouch™570 , and with the other members of the SpeedTouch™570

 

(W)LAN environment.

 

It is advisable that the WLAN client adapter is Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance

 

(WECA) Wi-Fi™ (*) certified to ensure smooth interoperability.

 

To use SpeedTouch™570 's encryption security features, the WLAN client adapters

 

should at least support 64-bit WEP encryption.

 

(*) Wireless-Fidelity (Wi-Fi)

 

 

Recommended

Only WLAN client adapters compliant to IEEE802.11b DSSS, will be able to communi-

Wireless client

cate with the SpeedTouch™570, hence with other members of the SpeedTouch™570

adapters

Wireless LAN environment.

 

It is advisable that the WLAN client adapter is Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alli-

 

ance (WECA) Wi-Fi certified to ensure smooth interoperability.
