Hope you folks don't mind...I figured with so many people, I could find an
I have an application that requires an ethernet-to-WiFi bridge. 802.11g,
MUST be g, no mixed-mode.
The WAP is a Cisco enterprise unit, dual radios: 11b/g, and 11a. it will NOT
do mixed-mode on the b/g.
either it's b, connecting b and g clients at b speeds, or it's set to g, not
working with b-clients (sucks, huh?)
The 11b/g radio has 2 SSID's assigned: 1 open for customers to use, 1 is
WPA-PSK with TKIP and a key.
I tried utilizing a DLink DWL-G820 wireless gaming/bridge, configured the
WPA-SSID, set to WPA-PSK,
put in the key. works for about 30-60 seconds, then drops, and connects to
the open SSID.
The DWL-G820, and the device on it's ethernet, are IP'd to ONLY work on that
encrypted SSID over a VLAN,
hence I *NEED* it to STAY locked on that SSID. It doesn't, and DLink says
there's no way to lock it.
Does anyone know of an 802.11g device that WILL stay locked to that
encrypted SSID, and not revert to the open one?
Needs to be an ethernet-to-WiFi, because I am attaching a Digi One SP
serial-to-ethernet bridge to the ethernet port
of the wireless device I use.
THIS Digi device would've been ideal, but it's 802.11b only, and I'd have to
lock the WAP to 802.11b, which would stink:
