Wireless question

Wireless question


We have a client that has a boat (read yacht), and this boat has a wired lan. They want to buy something that will
enable them to connect to a wireless access point and therefore connect to the web from their lan when they come into different ports. What would be the most viable solution for them?


RE: Wireless question

A wireless bridge of some sort.  I used a DLink DWL 810+ successfully like this.  But I don't think that's sold any more (it was/is old).  But similar products exist and can be pretty cheap.  In addition, some routers nowadays can act as bridges.  Consult your manual.

Their equipment is specially designed for exactly that situation.
