- Connecting the Wireless A/G Game Adapter to an Ad-Hoc Network
NOTE: Before connecting your Wireless A/G Game Adapter to an Adhoc Network, please know the 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, please follow the steps below.
Setting-Up the Wireless A/G Game Adapter to Connect to an Ad-Hoc Network
Connect the Wireless Game Adapter to your computer’s Ethernet port using an Ethernet cable.
Assign your computer a static IP address. For instructions, click here.
Access the Wireless A/G Game Adapter’s web-based setup page. For instructions, 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, under Security select Disabled then proceed to Step 11.
If WEP is enabled, under Security select Enabled and click Edit Wireless Security 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 64Bit(10 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.
When the web-based setup page appears, click Refresh and select your wireless network’s SSID.
Once your SSID is selected, click Connect.
Click Apply and you’re done setting-up the Game Adapter.
