WPA is a new standard-conformant solution for greater security in wireless networks. WPA is meant to replace the existing WEP standard (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and offers more reliable encryption and authentication methods. With your Gigaset USB Stick 108, you can use WPA encryption regardless of the operating system used. WPA encryption is particularly recommended where the highest security is required.
Range of wireless communication via a WLAN
The range is up to 300 m in the open. In buildings, the maximum range is up to 30 m. The operating environment, the nature of the rooms and building may reduce the range considerably. You can boost the range of your wireless network by placing a repeater, e.g. a Gigaset WLAN Repeater, at the limit of its range. The device also supports the XR technology (eXtended Range). This can be used to increase the range. Conversion to the XR mode is performed automatically at a respectively weak signal and when the partner station is also XR capable.

Activating security options In the Configuration Security tab, the default security mode is Disabled. You can use this to register on all wireless networks which do not use encryption for data transfer. If you would like to register on a wireless network where the registration is checked and data transfer is encrypted, you must activate the security options of your Gigaset USB Stick 108.
Select the security mode in the Security pop-up window:
WPA-PSK (see page 23) WEP (see page 24) WPA-PSK offers greater protection for your network than WEP. You should therefore use WPA-PSK for registration if all components in your network support this. The following are available for networks with authentication servers: WPA If WPA is used for authentication in your network, you must select the parameters according to the settings for the network. Contact your administrator. A window opens to configure the mode.
WPA-PSK can be operated with TKIP protocol or the new AES standard, depending on which standard is supported by the Access Point.
In the Encryption field, select the required encryption method (TKIP or AES).
Remember that when selecting encryption, two connection partners must use the same type of encryption.
In the Pre-shared Key (PSK) field, enter the key you would like to use for
registration on the network. Note that all components in a network must use the same Pre-shared Key (PSK) to be able to communicate with each other. If you would like to register on a network in Infrastructure mode, first define a PreShared Key (PSK) on your wireless router for your network. Then use this for all remaining components in your network. You can find more information in the user manual for your wireless router.
Click Apply to accept the changes.
For the Authentication Type, select the default setting Open. The Shared setting
is normally only used in networks with authentication. Contact your administrator for more information.
In the Key Length field, select the required length of the WEP key.
Note that all components in a network must use the same key length to be able to communicate with each other. Use a key of length 128 bit, if all network components support this. This offers greater protection for the data in your network.
In the Key Type field, select the character format for creating keys:
HEX The keys are entered as hexadecimal characters. Please only use the digits 0 to 9 and the letters A to F when entering. For a key with length of 128 bits, 26 hexadecimal characters are used, and for a key with length of 64 bits, 10 hexadecimal characters are used. ASCII The keys are formed from characters of the ASCII character set. For a key with length of 128 bits, 13 characters are used, and for a key with length of 64 bits, 5 characters are used.
After selecting key length and key type, you can use either a passphrase to generate your key automatically, or manually enter the key:
u Generating keys with a passphrase
For encryption, you can use a passphrase from which the required keys are generated automatically.
Activate the Use Passphrase option.
You can enter up to 260 characters.
This activates the appropriate entry field.
In the Use Passphrase field, enter any sequence of characters as the passphrase.
Please remember: u All connection partners must use the same passphrase for encryption.
u Make a note of your passphrase and store it in a secure place.
After entering the passphrase, you can jump to the next step and save your changes.
u Creating keys manually
In the fields Key 1 to Key 4, you can enter up to four keys. The length of the keys entered is determined by the settings in the fields Key Length and Key Type.
Enter at least one key in one of the four text fields.
Please remember: All connection partners must use the same key for encryption.
In the Default Key field, select one of these four created keys with which data
transfer on your PC is to be encrypted.
The security options of your Gigaset USB Stick 108 have now been activated.
