Determine Configuration Method
Installing the IP Setup Utility
The IP Setup Utility (IPSU) allows you to
find the bridge's IP address when it has been
assigned by a DHCP server. You may also
use IPSU to set the bridge IP address and
SSID, depending on which configuration
method you choose.
The IPSU cannot query the bridge's IP
address when the computer running IPSU is
on a different subnet than the bridge. If your
bridge receives an IP address from a DHCP
server, you must install and run IPSU on a
computer on the same subnet as the bridge.
However, because IPSU uses IP multicast, it
can set the bridge IP address and SSID when
the computer running IPSU is on a different
subnet than the bridge.
Note
IPSU may not function correctly if
the computer on which you install IPSU uses
Windows 95 or Windows 95A, and the
Microsoft Office Suite has not been installed
on the computer. Install IPSU on another
computer if one is available.
1
Put the Cisco Aironet Workgroup
Bridge CD in the CD-ROM drive of the
computer you are using to configure the
bridge.
2
Use Windows Explorer to view the
contents of the CD. Double-click the
IPSU folder, and then double-click the
file called setup.exe. Follow the steps
provided by the installation wizard.
Configuration Summary
Choose the configuration method best
suited for your network configuration
and do the initial configuration.
Configure the bridge.
Unplug the power adapter and
disconnect the bridge from the PC or
hub.
Place the bridge near the device or hub
it will serve. Connect the bridge to the
hub with an Ethernet cable.
Options for Initial
Configuration
You can use one of three methods to
configure the bridge:
Use a computer connected to your
wired LAN or wireless network to
communicate with the bridge through a
Cisco Aironet access point. The
computer you use for configuration
must be on the same subnet as the
bridge.
Use a computer on your wired LAN to
communicate with the bridge through a
hub on your wired LAN. The computer
you use for configuration must be on
the same subnet as the bridge.
Use a non-networked computer to
communicate directly with the bridge
through a crossover cable.
