  1. Create Wireless profile using Access Connection
  2. In the Edit your wireless settings screen, select the wireless mode as ' Auto'
  3. Verify that the profile can be connected to the Access Point
  4. In Step 2 , modify the setting to "802.11a" , "802.11b" and "802.11g" and confirm profile connectivity
  • No error message while applying the profile.
  • No side effect/system malfunction

1. Launch Access Connection (UR-01578DS)2. Create and apply any WL profile in AC by seletcing "b"mode
3. Click the Find Wireless and check the listed WL AP details
4. Find Wireless, Wireless Mode Shows 802.11b for all Access Points

CMVC: 84337, XP/2K:AC Show Wrong AP mode in Fnd WL if in b mode w/Athros

Note: This is the expected output according to Atheros team. If you choose "b"
on "Wireless Mode" this will force 11b mode to the driver so 11g will also
be read as 11b.


  • All Access Point should be listed and no malfunction
