4.0 Securing your wireless network
To avoid having uninvited guests accessing your wireless network we strongly
recommend securing your wireless network. This security feature (pass-key) needs to
be submitted into your wireless modem or your wireless router. The modem or router
will subsequently send out an encrypted signal, unable to be accessed by third party
guests.
There are a number of methods to secure your network on several levels. Make sure
all wireless network equipment is capable of adopting the method of choice. The latest
and also most effective way of securing your wireless network is WPA (WiFi Protected
Access). Some useful tips for securing your wireless network are discussed below.
Refer to the manual of your wireless router and/or modem to install and activate
wireless security. Write down settings such as: the security method, encryption level
(in Bits), method of submitting (ASCII, Hex etc.), the security key and the key index.
Configure all other wireless equipment within your network with the same settings.

Hint! When using the Eminent EM4551 wLINK, the EM4450, or the EM4218/19
wSURF you can use the best form of security possible: WPA or WPA2. We strongly
recommend to use one of these security methods.
5.0 Connect to a wireless network
Windows 2000 is not equipped with wireless support. That is why the wireless USB
adapter is supplied with special configuration software, suited to your Windows
version.

Windows XP is equipped with wireless support. We do recommend you to install
Windows XP Service Pack 3 for optimum wireless stability. You can download this
software for free from the following location: ‘www.windowsupdate.com’. This software
update enhances the security possibilities of Windows XP.
