This exclamation point means there is a caution or warning and is something that could damage your property or the Access Point. This question mark provides you with a reminder about something you might need to do while using the Access Point. In addition to these symbols, there are definitions for technical terms that are presented like this: word: definition. This Access Point will allow you to network wirelessly better than ever.

How does the Access Point do all of this? An access point allows for greater range and mobility within your wireless network while also allowing you to connect the wireless network to a wired environment. But what does all of this mean? Also used to expand the range of a wireless network.

Networks are useful tools for sharing computer resources. You can access one printer from different computers and access data located on another computer's hard drive. Networks are even used for playing multiplayer video games. So, networks are not only useful in homes and offices, they can also be fun.

They are connected with Ethernet cables, which is why the network is called "wired". PCs equipped with wireless cards and adapters can communicate without cumbersome cables. By sharing the same wireless settings, within their transmission radius, they form a wireless network.

The Access Point bridges wireless networks of both Use the instructions in this Guide to help you connect the Access Point, set it up, and configure it to bridge your different networks.

These instructions should be all you need to get the most out of the Access Point. Computers in a wireless network must be configured to share the same radio channel. Several PCs equipped with wireless cards or adapters can communicate with one another to form an ad-hoc network.

Linksys wireless adapters also provide users access to a wired network when using an access point, such as the Wireless-G Access Point with Power Over Ethernet, or wireless router. An integrated wireless and wired network is called an infrastructure network. Each wireless PC in an infrastructure network can talk to any computer in a wired network infrastructure via the access point or wireless router.

An infrastructure configuration extends the accessibility of a wireless PC to a wired network, and may double the effective wireless transmission range for two wireless adapter PCs.

Since an access point is able to forward data within a network, the effective transmission range in an infrastructure network may be doubled. Roaming Infrastructure mode also supports roaming capabilities for mobile users. Roaming means that you can move your wireless PC within your network and the access points will pick up the wireless PC's signal, providing that they both share the same channel and SSID.

Before using the roaming capabilities, choose a feasible radio channel and optimum access point position. Proper access point positioning combined with a clear radio signal will greatly enhance performance. The Access Point is compatible with These wireless products can also communicate with a With these, and many other, Linksys products, your networking options are limitless.

Either press the Reset button, for approximately ten seconds, or restore the defaults using the Access Point's Webbased Utility. Do not reset the Access Point if you want to retain these settings. This port will not be used if you are using Power Over Ethernet. Connections for Setup 1. Connect your Ethernet network cable to your network router or switch.

Then plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. POE technology allows a POE adapter also known as a power injector, power hub, or inline power device to supply data and power to an Ethernet device using a single Ethernet network cable. The first way is to place it horizontally on a surface, so it sits on its four rubber feet. The second way is to stand the Access Point vertically on a surface. The third way is to mount it on a wall. The stand and wall-mount options are explained in further detail below.

Stand Option 1. Remove them to expose the stand slots you want to use. The Access Point includes four triangular stands. With its rubber pad facing the bottom, insert a stand into a slot, and push the stand upward until the stand snaps into place.

Repeat this step with the other stands. Wall-Mount Option 1. Remove four adjacent feet to expose the wallmount slots you want to use. The distance between two adjacent slots is mm 5. Determine where you want to mount the Access Point. Drill four holes into the wall. Make sure adjacent holes are mm 5. Insert a screw into each hole, and leave 5 mm 0.

Maneuver the Router so the wall-mount slots line up with the four screws. Place the wall-mount slots over the screws and slide the Access Point down until the screws fit snugly into the wall-mount slots. This Setup Wizard will take you through all the steps necessary to configure the Access Point. Your PC must be on your wired network to set up the Access Point.
