About Release 1.5
NAPS-02 "Release1.0" was based on the concept "many
laptops with wireless LAN share one PHS connection". Now, this
"Release1.5" was born by the concept of "many wireless
LAN routers (NAPS-02) sharing one PHS connection" in addition
to "Release 1.0".
"Release1.5" firmware is not compatible with "Release1.0".
Already We had provided "Release 1.5" as the business
or OEM use as well, and now we decided to release as test which
is implemented the radio relay function (WDS). "Release1.5"
has the merit which can build the Internet connection environment
by preparing two NAPS-02 in the place which PHS radio signal is
not easy to reach.
As shown in the above figure, a PHS card is inserted
in one of NAPS-02, and no card is inserted in another NAPS-02. Then,
latter NAPS-02 connects to the former NAPS-02 and so both NAPS-02
can share one PHS. Although the maximum radius which one NAPS-02
can provides is 50m ( for comfortable use, within 30m radius is
better), two of NAPS-02 connected with relay function, can extend
the cover range to about 60m - 100m.
Restriction of using "Release1.5" :
- A corresponding data-communications card is only "B-mobile"
by Japan Communications Inc. ("Release 1.5 does not correspond
with other cards, such as AirH" and FOMA.)
- For wireless LAN, "Release 1.5" correspond with IEEE802.11b
only. It does not correspond to 11a/g. (IEEE 802.11g wireless
LAN has a compatible mode with IEEE802.11b)
- ESS-ID is fixed with"COOLSPOT" and no WEP.
- Any settings such as a radio channel, WEP cannot be performed.
- No user interface such as Web.
- Maximum relay (WDS) connection is three sets.
Corporate users or public organization users, domestic in Japan

condition as follows,
