Determine Conﬁguration Method (continued)
In the IP Address ﬁeld, enter the IP address the network administator gave you to assign to
the bridge. The IP address of the PC should be on the same subnet as the IP address you
are assigning to the bridge.
Enter the SSID you want to assign to the bridge in the SSID ﬁeld.
You cannot set the SSID without also setting the IP address. However, you can set the
IP address without setting the SSID.
Click the Set Parameters button. You will see a message that the SSID was successfully set.
To check the IP address, browse to the bridge's browser-based management pages.
Enter the bridge's IP address in the browser's location or address ﬁeld. (If you are using
Netscape, the ﬁeld is labeled Netsite or Location; if you are using Microsoft Explorer, the
ﬁeld is labeled Address.)
Press Enter. The bridge's main menu page appears.
Disconnect the unit from your wired LAN and connect it to the hub it will serve.

To use a non-networked computer to conﬁgure the bridge, follow these steps:
Connect the bridge and a
non-networked PC with a
Power on both devices.
Double-click the IP Setup icon on
