European Economic Area Restrictions

Local Restriction of 802.11b/802.11g Radio Usage

[Note to integrator: The following statements on local restrictions must be published in all end-user documentation provided with the system or product incorporating the wireless product.]

Due to the fact that the frequencies used by 802.11b/802.11g wireless LAN devices may not yet be harmonized in all countries, 802.11b/802.11g products are designed for use only in specific countries or regions, and are not allowed to be operated in countries or regions other than those of designated use.

As a user of these products, you are responsible for ensuring that the products are used only in the countries or regions for which they were intended and for verifying that they are configured with the correct selection of frequency and channel for the country or region of use. Any deviation from permissible settings and restrictions in the country or region of use could be an infringement of local law and may be punished as such.

The European variant is intended for use throughout the European Economic Area. However, authorization for use is further restricted in particular countries or regions within countries, as follows:


European standards dictate maximum radiated transmit power of 100 mW effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) and the frequency range 2400 – 2483.5 MHz.

The low band 5.15 - 5.35 GHz is for indoor use only.


The product may be used outdoors, but for outdoor transmissions over a distance of 300m or more, a license from the BIPT is required.

This restriction should be indicated in the manual as follows:

Dans le cas d’une utilisation privée, à l’extérieur d’un bâtiment, au-dessus d’un espace public, aucun enregistrement n’est nécessaire pour une distance de moins de 300m. Pour une distance supérieure à 300m un enregistrement auprès de l’IBPT est requise. Pour une utilisation publique

àl’extérieur de bâtiments, une licence de l’IBPT est requise. Pour les enregistrements et licences, veuillez contacter l’IBPT.
