¾ SSID - A Service Set Identification is a thirty-two character (maximum) alphanumeric
key identifying a wireless local area network. For the wireless devices in a network to
communicate with each other, all devices must be configured with the same SSID.
This is typically the configuration parameter for a wireless PC card. It corresponds to
the ESSID in the wireless Access Point and to the wireless network name. See also
Wireless Network Name and ESSID.
¾ WEP - (Wired Equivalent Privacy) - A data privacy mechanism based on a 64-bit or
128-bit or 152-bit shared key algorithm, as described in the IEEE 802.11 standard. To
gain access to a WEP network, you must know the key. The key is a string of
characters that you create. When using WEP, you must determine the level of
encryption. The type of encryption determines the key length. 128-bit encryption
requires a longer key than 64-bit encryption. Keys are defined by entering in a string
in HEX (hexadecimal - using characters 0-9, A-F) or ASCII (American Standard Code
for Information Interchange – alphanumeric characters) format. ASCII format is
provided so you can enter a string that is easier to remember. The ASCII string is
converted to HEX for use over the network. Four keys can be defined so that you can
change keys easily.
¾ Wi-Fi - A trade name for the 802.11b wireless networking standard, given by the
Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance (WECA, see http://www.wi-fi.net), an
industry standards group promoting interoperability among 802.11b devices.
¾ WLAN - (Wireless Local Area Network) - A group of computers and associated
devices communicate with each other wirelessly, which network serving users are
limited in a local area.
¾ WPA - (Wi-Fi Protected Access) - A wireless security protocol uses TKIP (Temporal
Key Integrity Protocol) encryption, which can be used in conjunction with a RADIUS
