System Configuration   3-23
Note:
Enabling Closed System Mode on your wireless Gateway provides another level of security, since your 
wireless LAN will no longer appear as an available access point to client PCs that are casually scanning for one.
Your own wireless network clients, however, must log into the wireless LAN by using the exact SSID of the 
Netopia Gateway.
In addition, if you have enabled WEP encr yption on the Netopia Gateway, your network clients must also have 
WEP encr yption enabled, and must have the same WEP encr yption key as the Netopia Gateway.
Once the Netopia Gateway is located by a client computer, by setting the client to a matching SSID, the client 
can connect immediately if WEP is not enabled. If WEP is enabled then the client must also have WEP enabled 
and a matching WEP key. 
Wireless client cards from different manufacturers and different operating systems accomplish connecting to a 
wireless LAN and enabling WEP in a variety of ways. Consult the documentation for your par ticular wireless card 
and/or operating system.
