Configuring the Adapter Using Your Web Browser

A standard web browser like Internet Explorer or Safari must be used for first time
configuration of the adapter. The adapter must be connected directly to the PC or other host
using the Ethernet crossover cable provided. Once the adapter and PC are connected together,
follow these instructions to set up the adapter for your wireless network.
Note:
The factory default IP address for the adapter is 169.254.111.111.
1.
Make sure your computer is configured to use a network address of 169.254.x.y to
communicate with the adapter. For instance, the host computer can be set to the IP address
169.254.111.113.
2.
Open your web browser.
3.
Type 169.254.111.111 in your browser's address/location bar.
4.
The Status page appears.
Note:
If the Status page does not appear in your browser window, then use the back panel
Reset button to reset the adapter back to factory defaults. Push the Reset button and hold
for 5 seconds. See
Default (Reset Button)
See

troubleshooting tips.
5.
Click on WEP Settings, WPA Settings, or Advanced Settings under the Wireless
Configuration folder in the left navigation panel.
6.
A Login Required screen appears. Enter the default password access, and then click the
Log In button.
Note:
You will need to re-enter the password if a session times out after 5 minutes of
inactivity.
7.
The browser displays the screen you were trying to reach: WEP Settings, WPA Settings,
or Advanced Settings. Configure the adapter to operate in your wireless environment.
8.
Click on any of the options under the TCP/IP Configuration folder in the left navigation
panel to configure them to operate in your Ethernet environment.
Note:
The factory default BOOTP/DHCP is Off. Resetting the adapter will also change
this feature to Off. If your network requires BOOTP/DHCP, or you need to use an IP
address other than the one assigned, you will need to change those settings using this
dialog.
9.
Click on any of the options under the Administrative Utilities folder in the left navigation
panel to configure the passwords or other settings, if changes in these settings are needed.
