Encryption

Setting Description
SSID -The SSID must be set to match the SSID your router or wireless LAN uses. The SSID is limited to 32 characters (alpha numeric) and is case sensitive.
Communication mode -In "802.11b", there are a lot of 802.11b-compliant products and they are inexpensive. They are widely prevalent, so "802.11b" is useful when using your existing wireless devices.
-"802.11b/g" supports both 802.11b and 802.11g wireless LAN standards. It is the communication mode that is easy to install on your existing wireless LAN.
-"802.11g exclusive" communicates using 802.11g only. It does not support the mixed standard mode of 802.11b/g, so it allows the use of original features of 802.11g.*1
  • *1 Even if "802.11g exclusive" is in use, the existence of other wireless devices using 2.4GHz bandwidth - including 802.11b wireless devices - makes the baud rate of 802.11g slower.

3. Set each parameter for the Encryption.
