Since communication via the wireless LAN

wireless signal may be susceptible to
interception. To protect wireless
communication, this player supports various
security functions. Be sure to correctly
configure the security settings in accordance
with your network environment.
No Security
Although you can easily make settings,
anyone can intercept wireless
communication or intrude into your wireless
network, even without any sophisticated
tools. Keep in mind that there is a risk of
unauthorised access or interception of data.
WEP
WEP applies security to communications to
prevent outsiders from intercepting
communications or intruding into your
wireless network. WEP is a legacy security
technology that enables older devices, which
do not support TKIP/AES, to be connected.
WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK (TKIP)
TKIP is a security technology developed to
correct for the deficiencies of WEP. TKIP
assures a higher security level than WEP.
WPA-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (AES)
AES is a security technology that uses an
advanced security method that is distinct
from WEP and TKIP.
AES assures a higher security level than
WEP or TKIP.
