Configuring the Wireless Access Point/Bridge
The Wireless IP Kit has a summary sheet enclosed inside the box for the default IP
settings of the Video Server and Wireless Access point. There are two ways to configure
or make changes to the IP settings of these two devices. First, use the default IP
information; second, make changes of IP settings to these two devices by making direct
connections to both devices.
A. Configuring the IP Address of Wireless Access Point/Bridge
1. Introduction
The Outdoor Wireless Bridge/Client Router/AP/Repeater operates seamlessly in the
2.4 GHz frequency spectrum supporting the 802.11b (2.4GHz, 11Mbps) and faster
802.11g (2.4GHz, 54Mbps) wireless standards. It's the best way to add wireless capability to your
existing wired network, or to add bandwidth to your wireless installation. EOC-3220 Series Wireless
Access Point/Bridge has high transmitted output power and high receivable sensitivity. High output
power and high sensitivity can extend range and coverage to reduce the roaming between APs to
get more stability in wireless connection. It also can reduce the expense of equipment in the same
environment. To protect your wireless connectivity, it can encrypt all wireless transmissions through
64/128-bit WEP data encryption and also supports WPA/WPA2. The MAC address filter lets you
select exactly which stations should have access to your network.
1.1 Initial Wiring Setup to Configure Wireless Access Point/Bridge
Step 1:
Remove the CAT5 from the IP
video server and insert the RJ45
Connect a network cable from your
PC (If using a cross over cable,
otherwise it will be a network cable
from a hub/switch) into this RJ45
coupler in order to access the Web
interface of the router’s
configuration menu.
