Existing Wifi Connection


#1

Hello, I was wondering if you can connect the Wireless Bridge and or Bolt to an existing Wifi Network?

If yes then since my equipment has static IP addresses you would then need to assign a static IP address in the Existing Wifi Router correct? Or can these do basic routing?

Thanks!

Yes, you can connect the Bridge or Bolt to an existing WiFi network. See:

Appendix A.4 - Ethernet network to existing WLAN

I’m not sure why you would have to assign a static IP address to your existing WiFi router. You may want to reserve some addresses for static devices if you are running DHCP. On the Anybus Wireless device, you can do either DHCP forwarding from the existing DHCP server (your router) or you can use static addresses.
