									Release Notes
Summit Software Version 1.03.17 for Windows XP
14 September 2007


V1.03.17 of Windows XP software for Summit 802.11g radio modules includes the following
components:
 A device driver
 An integrated 802.1X supplicant
 An administrative utility called the Summit Client Utility (SCU)

V1.03.17 of Summit XP software can be used with any Summit radio:
 Compact flash: SDC-CF10G module or SDC-CF20G card
 PCMCIA: SDC-PC10G module or SDC-PC20G card
 Miniature CF: SDC-MCF10G module

Consult the Summit User’s Guide for installation instructions and for details on the features of this
software release. The feature set of this software release is the same as that of V1.03.09 on Windows CE
and Windows Mobile, with the exception of items listed as known issues. Below is a summary of:
 Issues that existed in CE V1.03.09 that are resolved in XP V1.03.17
 Known issues
 Usage notes

Resolved Issues
XP V1.03.17 resolves the following SCU issues that existed in CE V1.03.09:
 Tapping Disable button when SCU minimized: With CE V1.03.09, it was possible to “tap” the
   “Disable Radio” or “Enable Radio” button on the SCU Main window even when the SCU application
   was minimized or closed. If you highlighted the button before minimizing or closing SCU and then
   hit the spacebar, you would disable (or enable) the radio. With XP V1.03.17, you cannot activate the
   Disable Radio or Enable Radio button while SCU is minimized or closed.
 5 mW and 20 mW with ThirdParty Config: With V1.03.17, you can select a transmit power value
   of 5 mW or 20 mW within the ThirdPartyConfig profile.
XP V1.03.17 resolves the following EAP-FAST issues that existed in CE V1.03.09:
 Automatic provisioning: XP V1.03.17 ensures that, when automatic provisioning of the protected
   access credential (PAC) is used:
   - The appropriate inner method is used to ensure successful provisioning
   - A user PAC or a machine PAC can be provisioned
 PAC type switching: With XP V1.03.17, you can change a profile from automatically provisioned
   PACs to manually provisioned PACs or vice versa.

XP V1.03.17 resolves the following other issue that existed in CE V1.03.09:
 Disable Radio: XP V1.03.17 ensures that, after the Disable Radio button is tapped in SCU, the radio
   is disabled completely.

Known Issues
V1.03.17 of XP software has the following known issues:
 XP versions of the Summit Manufacturing Utility (SMU), the Summit Regulatory Utility (SRU), and
   the Summit software developer’s kit (SDK) are not available.
 An SLD file for XP Embedded is not included.
 SCU does not support the Microsoft certificate store. As a result:
   - SCU does not support EAP-TLS. To use EAP-TLS, you must use Windows Zero Config.
   - To use the “Validate server” selection within an SCU profile for PEAP-MSCHAP and PEAP-
       GTC, you cannot store a CA certificate in the Microsoft certificate store; you must store the
       certificate in a directory for which you provide a path via the Certs Path global setting.
 The Radio Mode of “G rates only” is not available in SCU on XP.
 If you start a Ping test on a device where the Summit radio uses an EAP type and roams regularly,
   and you run the test for a long time, then the radio may lose association.
 If you start a Ping test from the SCU Diags window and let it run for a very long time, such as
   overnight, then the test may exhaust the device’s available memory.
 If you start a ping test from the SCU Diags window and then eject the radio, then the driver does not
   unload; the radio’s status remains “Associated”, and pings appear to continue.
 If you highlight the “Disable Radio” or “Enable Radio” button on the SCU Main window, move to
   the Status window, and then hit the spacebar, your action is like tapping the highlighted button, and
   you disable or enable the radio.
 If the AP to which a Summit radio is trying to associate does not support at least one data rate other
   than 48 Mbps and 54 Mbps, then the radio will not associate, regardless of what radio mode is
   configured.
 When a Summit radio’s encryption type is WPA TKIP and not CCKM TKIP, a Cisco AP that
   requires CCKM may allow the radio to associate and pass data.

Installation Notes
Summit offers the following installation notes for XP V1.03.17:
 Using the Installer on XP and XPe: The Summit software installation program, SummitSetup.msi,
   requires Windows Installer 2.0 or higher, which is installed on Windows XP. On Windows XP
   Embedded, you must add the “Windows Installer Services” component to the image. You must run
   the Installer before inserting the radio.
 Manual installation of files: The Summit software package includes a ReadMe file that explains the
   function of each software file in the package. Review the ReadMe file to determine which software
   files to install.
 SLD file for XPe: Because a default system-level definition (.sld) file is not included in the software
   package, you must create your own for XPe. Details on usage are found in the documentation
   included in the software package.
 Summit supplicant and WZC supplicant: Two 802.1X supplicants are available: the Summit
   supplicant and the supplicant provided with Windows Zero Config (WZC). If you install the
   complete software package, then users have the ability to use either supplicant, with WZC support
   available through the special ThirdPartyConfig profile. If you do a manual installation of files and
   want to use the WZC supplicant, then you must modify the installation by following the instructions
   in the ReadMe file in the software package.

Usage Notes
Summit offers the following usage notes for XP V1.03.17:
 CF slot on XP laptop: A Summit CF radio may not operate in the CF slot of a Windows XP laptop
   or desktop system. If that is the case, use a Summit PCMCIA radio in a PCMCIA/Cardbus slot.
 Changing global settings: If you change global settings and Commit the changes by tapping the
   Commit button on the SCU Global window, then you must take one of the following actions to ensure
   that the changes take effect: reboot or power-cycle the machine, remove and reinsert the radio, or
   disable and enable the driver from Control Panel in Windows.
 EAP authentication passwords: Any password provided for EAP authentication, whether in a
   profile or in an authentication dialog box, should not contain parentheses. Neither SCU nor the
   dialog box flags a parenthesis as an invalid character, but the integrated supplicant treats parentheses
   as delimiters and interprets the characters between a left parenthesis and a right parenthesis as the
   “true” password.
 Cisco controllers and data rates: The “BG rates optimized” value for the Radio Mode setting in a
   profile is optimized for Cisco APs running IOS in autonomous mode (without controllers). This
   Radio Mode value is not optimized for and should not be used with Cisco APs that are tied to
   controllers. An alternative to selecting a different value for Radio Mode is to set the 11 Mbps rate to
   “supported” instead of “mandatory” on each controller.
 CKIP: If the active profile has an Encryption setting of CKIP Manual or CKIP Auto, then the
   Summit radio will associate or roam successfully to an AP is configured with:
   - The SSID and other RF settings of the active profile
   - The authentication method of the active profile
   - For Manual WEP, the static WEP keys of the active profile
   - Any of the following encryption settings:
        o WEP only (no CKIP or CMIC)
        o WEP with CKIP
        o WEP with CMIC
        o WEP with CKIP and CMIC
