Quick Start Guide

 

This guide describes basic installation of the AirConnect

 

®

 

 wireless PC Card, 

and is intended for users familiar with PC Card and driver installation for 
Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows Millennium Edition 
(Windows Me). 

For more detailed installation procedures and for installation under 
Windows NT 4.0 and Windows CE, refer to the 

 

AirConnect Wireless PC Card 

User Guide. 

 

Refer to “Installing the Documentation” on page 4 of this quick start guide 
for information on setting up the online documentation.

This guide describes how to set up your wireless PC Card in infrastructure 
mode (networking using wireless clients and access points). Infrastructure 
mode requires that at least one access point be installed in your service area. 
You must set the Wireless LAN Service Area of your wireless client to that of 
the access point you will be using.

To use your wireless PC Card in ad hoc mode (networking between wireless 
clients only), no access point is required. Refer to the 

 

AirConnect Wireless PC 

Card User Guide

 

 for information.

 

Installing Under Windows 98, Windows 2000, and 
Windows Me

 

Before installing the driver, you will need a copy of the operating system 
installation media, usually a CD supplied with your computer or operating 
system.

On Windows 98 systems, the installation files are sometimes archived on the 
hard disk in C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS. 

 

CAUTION

 

:

 

 

 

Installation under Windows 98 may result in a fatal error caused 

by the UHCD.SYS file in the Windows 98 operating system. To avoid this 
problem, you should update the UHCD.SYS file from v4.10.1998 to 
v4.10.2000. This update is available from the following Web site:

 

http://www.microsoft.com/windows98/downloads/contents/
WURecommended/systemupdata/Default.asp

 

The final Windows 98 installation screen may take 30-60 seconds to appear. 
Do not interrupt the installation if the PC appears to be taking too much 
time to complete the installation.

 

On Windows 2000 systems, you may be prompted to load operating system 
files from the Windows 2000 installation CD.

You will also need the 

 

Installation

 

 CD supplied with your AirConnect 

wireless PC Card. The Setup program installs configuration utilities in the 
Network application in the Control Panel.

Running Setup from the Installation CD

 

1

Turn on your computer.

2

Put the 

 

Installation 

 

CD in the CD-ROM drive.

 

The setup program should start automatically. If it does not start, you can 
run it manually by selecting 

 

Run

 

 from the Start menu and running 

SETUP.EXE from the CD-ROM drive.

 

3

On the 

 

3Com AirConnect WLAN Menu

 

 screen, select

the card firmly without forcing until it seats snugly.

CAUTION:

 

 

 

Forcing a misaligned card into the slot can damage the computer 

or the card.

 

The driver installation procedure guides you through the steps standard 
for your operating system. If you are unfamiliar with driver installation 
procedures, refer to the 

 

AirConnect Wireless PC Card User Guide 

 

for 

details. You will be asked to supply CDs or directory path information for 
the 

 

Installation 

 

CD and your operating system software. As part of the 

driver installation process, the setup program will install and open the 
Network application in the Control Panel.

 

6

Enter the name of the Wireless LAN Service Area of the wireless 
network to which your computer will connect. The name you enter here 
must match exactly the name assigned to the access point. Characters, 
capitalization, and spacing must be identical.

 

If the access point you wish to connect to is set for encryption, you must also 
enable encryption on the wireless client. Click Advanced to go to screens 
where you can enable and configure encryption.

You must set the wireless client for the same encryption algorithm and 
shared key values as the access point it will connect to. Refer to the 
AirConnect Wireless PC Card User Guide for details about configuring 
encryption.

 

7

Save the configuration settings and exit by clicking 

 

OK

 

.

8

Restart your computer.

and subnet mask) are set correctly for your computer. 

 

3Com recommends that you install the wireless LAN applications so you 
can access the utilities described in the 

 

AirConnect Wireless PC Card 

User Guide

 

.

 

11 Restart your computer for changes to take effect.

Installing Under Windows 95

 

Installation under Windows 95 is identical to the procedure given above for 
Windows 98 and Windows 2000. Only Windows 95 version B (OSR 2) or 
higher is supported.

To determine which version of Windows 95 you have, go to the Windows 
Control Panel and double-click 

 

System

 

 to display the System Properties 

dialog box. Click the 

 

General Tab

 

 to display the Windows 95 version 

information. Version B (also known as OSR 2) is identified as 4.00.950b.

 

Orienting the Antenna

 

The PC Card antenna is located at the end of the PC Card.

For best use of the antenna:

 

 

Keep the area around the antenna clear from materials that could block 
radio transmission, such as metal objects, electronic devices, and cordless 
telephones.

 

 

If necessary, move your notebook computer a few inches to find a better 
signal. Depending on your environment, a difference of one or two 
inches can mean the difference between a strong and a weak signal.

Even a slight change in PC orientation can improve a wireless 
connection, just as moving a radio an inch or two to the left or right can 
improve reception.

 

 

If you have installed the WLAN Applications, you may use the Signal 
Strength display in the AirConnect Status application to determine the 
best location and orientation for a network connection. For details, refer 
to the 

 

AirConnect Wireless PC Card User Guide

 

.

 

Wireless PC Card LED

 

The PC Card LED (Figure 2) indicates the operational status of the card.

 

Removing the Wireless PC Card

 

1

Pull on the sides of the card to remove it from the slot. Do not pull on 
the antenna (Figure 3).

The card is exchanging 
data with an access 
point or ad hoc wireless 
client. The higher the 
data rate, the faster the 
blinking.

EQUIREMENTS

 

This device has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device pursuant to 
Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commissions Rules and Regulation. These limits are designed 
to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a 
commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, 
if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to 
radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful 
interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.

However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If the 
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined 
by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one 
or more of the following measures:

 

 

Re-orient or relocate the receiving antenna.

 

 

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

 

 

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that which the receiver is 
connected.

 

 

Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
