Notebook PC User Manual 47 Connections The built-in network cannot be installed later as an upgrade. After purchase, network can be installed as an expansion card. Network Connection Connect a network cable, with RJ-45 connectors on each end, to the modem/network port on the Notebook PC and the other end to a hub or switch. For 100 BASE-TX / 1000 BASE-T speeds, your network cable must be category 5 or better (not category 3) with twisted-pair wiring. If you plan on running the interface at 100/1000Mbps, it must be connected to a 100 BASE-TX / 1000 BASE-T hub (not a BASE-T4 hub). 10/100 Mbps Full-Duplex is supported on this Notebook PC but requires connection to a network switching hub with “duplex” enabled. The software default is to use the fastest setting so no user-intervention is required. 1000BASE-T (or Gigabit) is only supported on selected models. 48 Notebook PC User Manual Twisted-Pair Cable The cable used to connect the Ethernet card to a host (generally a Hub or Switch) is called a straight-through Twisted Pair Ethernet (TPE). The end connectors are called RJ-45 connectors, which are not compatible with RJ-11 telephone connectors. If connecting two computers together without a hub in between, a crossover LAN cable is required (Fast-Ethernet model). (Gigabit models support auto-crossover so a crossover LAN cable is optional. ) Example of the Notebook PC connected to a Network Hub or Switch for use with the built-in Ethernet controller. Network Hub or Switch Network cable with RJ-45 connectors The actual location of the LAN port differs by models. Refer to the previous chapter to locate the LAN port. Notebook PC User Manual 49 Wireless LAN Connection (on selected models) The optional built-in wireless LAN is a compact easy-to-use wireless Ethernet adapter. Implementing the IEEE 802. 11 standard for wireless LAN (WLAN), the optional built-in wireless LAN is capable of fast data transmission rates using Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technologies on 2. 4GHz/5GHz frequencies. The optional built-in wireless LAN is backward compatible with the earlier IEEE 802. 11 standards allowing seamless interfacing of wireless LAN standards. The optional built-in wireless LAN is a client adapter that supports Infrastructure and Ad-hoc modes giving you flexibility on your existing or future wireless network configurations for distances up to 40 meters between the client and the access point. To provide efficient security to your wireless communication, the optional built-in wireless LAN comes with a 64-bit/128-bit Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) encryption and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) features. For security concerns, DO NOT connect to the unsecured network; otherwise, the information transmission without encryption might be visible to others. WLAN supports 802. 11 a/b/g/n. 50 Notebook PC User Manual Ad-hoc mode The Ad-hoc mode allows the Notebook PC to connect to another wireless device. (All devices must install optional 802. 11 wireless LAN adapters. ) Desktop PC Notebook PC Mobile Phone Infrastructure mode The Infrastructure mode allows the Notebook PC and other wireless devices to join a wireless network created by an Access Point (AP) (sold separately) that provides a central link for wireless clients to communicate with each other or with a wired network.
