- Connecting the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge to a Wireless Network
To connect the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge to a wireless network, make sure you have these wireless settings:
• Network name or SSID
• Wireless Security or Network Key
If you do not know your wireless settings and you’re using a Linksys router, click here. If you are using a non-Linksys router, consult the user guide or contact the manufacturer of your router for assistance on getting these wireless settings.
Setting-Up the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge
Connect the Wireless Ethernet Bridge to your router using an Ethernet cable.
Access the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge’s web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge's web-based setup page, click here.
On the Ethernet Bridge’s setup page appears, look for the SSID field and enter the wireless network’s SSID.
For Network Type, select Infrastructure.
WEP security is enabled on your router, select Enable then click Edit Security.
NOTE: If WEP security feature is not enabled on your Linksys wireless router, look under Security and select Disable then proceed to Step 10.
NOTE: The Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge, WET54G only has the WEP security feature. If your router is using the WPA security features instead of WEP, select Disable.
On the WEP Encryption window, select the same Default Transmit Key as your router’s. In this example, number 1 is used.
Select the same WEP Encryption level either 64Bit (10 hex digits) or 128Bit (26 hex digits). In this example we selected 64Bit(10 hex digits) is used.
Enter the wireless network’s WEP Key based on the Default Transmit Key selected.
On the web-based setup page, click Site Survey > Refresh and select your wireless network’s SSID by clicking on it.
