An encryption method employed by WPA WPA2

• PSK

An encryption method employed by WPA/WPA2.

R

• Router

A relay device to connect to another network.

S

• Signal Level

The strength of the signal received by the printer from the access point is indicated with a value from
0 to 100%.

• SSID

Unique label for wireless LAN. It is often represented such as a network name or an access point
name.

SSID distinguishes one wireless LAN from another to prevent interference.

The printer and all clients on a wireless LAN must use the same SSID in order to communicate with
each other. The SSID can be up to 32 characters long, and is made up of alphanumeric characters.
The SSID may also be referred to by its network name.

• Stealth

In the stealth mode, an access point hides itself by not broadcasting its SSID. The client must specify
the SSID set to the access point to detect it.

The stealth mode is called a "closed network".

• Subnet Mask Address

IP address has two components, the network address and the host address. Subnet Mask used to
calculate the Subnet Mask address from the IP address. A Subnet Mask is usually assigned by an
access point or a DHCP server of the router automatically.

Example:

IP Address: 192.168.127.123

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

Subnet Mask Address: 192.168.127.0

T

• TCP/IP

Suite of communications protocols used to connect hosts on the Internet or the LAN. This protocol
allows different terminals to communicate with each other.

• TKIP

An encryption protocol employed by WPA/WPA2.
