LAN Unit

You can connect to a LAN (Local Area Network) with the 100 Base-TX/10 Base-T
LAN units on your computer. To activate the LAN unit, perform the following steps.

Never insert any cables, but a LAN cable, which have different electric
characteristics from those of the LAN cable. Otherwise, the LAN unit and
the cables may be damaged.

Use a category 3 or a category 5 LAN cable when connecting to 10
BASE-T LAN, and the category 5 only when connecting to 100 BASE-TX
