To help configure the Sirocco's wireless capabilities, a site survey is run to determine the access points that are in range. Figure 6 shows my case as an example in which two access points were located.

When I selected my Linksys WRT54G, a password-entry screen appeared, prompting me for an input and a confirmation (as shown in Figure 7). Both WEP and the more secure WPA/WPA2 encryption are supported.

After I entered the encryption key for my router, I continued through to the end of the Setup Wizard screens. When the basic setup was complete, my information was saved to the Sirocco. At this point, I unplugged the device from my router and moved it to my entertainment center so I could plug it into my AV receiver.

As I was plugging it in, I was pleased to find that Sondigo included an optical audio cable with the device. This was the first audio device I've tested that included one, and I have found that with my setup, optical audio (SPDIF) does make a difference in the sound quality. My local retailer typically charges $15-$20 for this type of cable, so having a cable included as part of the device was a nice bonus.
