Hide thumbs


Configure the Bridge (continued)
Type 1 to select Configuration. When the configuration menu appears, type 1 again to
select Radio. When the radio menu appears, type 1 again to select SSID.
If you are configuring the bridge through a wireless connection, changing
the SSID in the next step could interrupt connectivity to the device. Take care to enter
an SSID that matches the SSID of an access point near the bridge.
Look at the current SSID. If it is tsunami, the default setting, enter the SSID provided by
your network administrator on the data entry line and press Enter.
If you already set the SSID using IPSU and the current SSID is correct, you do not need to
set it again.
Steps 6 through 13 help you set the bridge's WEP key. If your wireless network does not
use WEP, skip to Step 15.
Type 5 to select I80211. When the I80211 menu appears, type 2 to select Privacy.
In the Privacy menu, type 3 to select Key.
Enter the WEP key number your network administrator asked you to set and press Enter.
Enter the key provided by your network administrator and press Enter. If you are setting a
40-bit key, enter 10 hexadecimal characters (any combination of 0 through 9, a through f,
or A through F). If you are setting a 128-bit key, enter 26 hexadecimal characters. You are
prompted to re-enter the key for verification. Type the key and press Enter.
Type 4 to select Transmit.
Enter the number of the key the bridge will use and press Enter. Only one WEP key can be
used at a time.
The WEP key you use to transmit data must be set up exactly the same on your access
point and your bridge. For example, if you set WEP Key 3 on your bridge to 0987654321 and
select it as the transmit key, you must also set WEP Key 3 on the access point to 0987654321.
