XSBoxR4v Instructions for use General ■ XSBoxR4v is a device which is designed for use only in heated, dry and dust-free buildings. The device may not be mounted or set up in a place which is exposed to direct sunlight or direct heat impact. The slits and vents serve to ventilate the device. These vents should not be covered. The device should not come into contact with fire or flames and may not be used in areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere.
User Manual Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) Both WLAN standards IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.11g have been developed by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). The 802.11b technology can reach a transmission rate of up to 11 Mbit/s, 54 Mbit/s are possible with the 802.11g technology. The XSBoxR4v supports both standards. WLAN adapters, which are based on one of these standards can establish connections to XSBoxR4v.
