•  If you have wireless network, click Setup for the WiFi option. In the WiFi tab of 

the Advanced Network Settings box, enter the name of your wireless access 

point in the SSID field. If your wireless access point has security enabled, 

select the corresponding security algorithm from the drop-down list (e.g. 

WEPAUTO) in the Encryption Type field, and enter the password. 

  Click OK to enable WiFi and establish the wireless connection.
•  If you use a network cable connected directly to your DSL/cable modem (no 

router in between), click Setup for xDSL/cable dial-up. This method is also 

referred to as PPPoE. Choose whether the DSL/cable modem is connected 

to your computer’s LAN port. Then enter the username and password for your 

dial-up account.

  Click OK to enable xDSL/cable dial-up and establish the PPPoE connection. 

When PPPoE is enabled, the port it uses will automatically be unchecked and 

grayed out.

Using the Photo Manager

Express Gate provides a easy-to-use Photo Manager that allows you to view

dongles, card readers, or optical disks). You can view pictures in thumbnail view; 

in an enlarged view individually; in a filename/data list view; or play them in a 

slideshow with background music and fancy transition effects. JPEG, GIF, BMP, 

and PNG formats are supported. Refer to the on-line Help for detailed software 

operation.
