- Connecting the Wireless-G Game Adapter to an Ad-Hoc Network
NOTE: Before connecting your Wireless-G Game Adapter to an Adhoc Network, please know the following: SSID, Wireless Security and/or Network Key.
To connect the Game Adapter to an Ad-hoc Network you have to access the Game Adapter’s setup page and configure the wireless settings to match that of the Ad-hoc Network’s. For instructions on how to do this please follow the steps below.
Setting-Up the Wireless-G Game Adapter to Connect to an Ad-Hoc Network
Connect the Wireless-G Game Adapter to your computer’s Ethernet port using an Ethernet cable.
Assign your computer a static IP address. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: To assign a static IP address using Mac, click here.
Access the Wireless-G Game Adapter’s web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using Mac to access the Game Adapter's web-based setup page, click here.
When the Game Adapter’s setup page appears, look for the SSID field and enter the wireless network’s SSID.
Look for Network Type and select Ad Hoc then select the same channel the Ad-hoc network is using.
If WEP is not enabled on the wireless router select Disable then proceed to Step 11.
If WEP is enabled, select Enable then click WEP Key Settings then proceed to the step below.
When the WEP Encryption window appears, select the same Default Transmit Key as your router’s. In this example, we selected 1.
Select the same WEP encryption level either 64Bit(10 hex digits) or 128Bit(26 hex digits). In this example we selected 128Bit(26 hex digits).
Enter the wireless network’s WEP key based on the default transmit key selected. Since we selected Key 1, we’ll enter the WEP key in the Key 1 field.
On the Setup page, click Refresh and select your wireless network’s SSID.
Once your SSID was selected, click Connect.
Click Apply and you’re done setting-up the Game Adapter.
