VALID 'OPERATION MODE' OPTIONS FOR YOU (BEST FIRST);
The wired Ethernet and wireless NIC are bridged together. Once the mode
is selected, all the WAN related functions will be disabled.
(2) Router (WAN Wireless)
The device is supposed to connect to Internet via Wireless port and it
will act as router. NAT system will be disabled.
->ROUTER, CLIENTS MUST BE CONFIGURED MANUALLY FOR THE ALFA.
(3) WISP (Wireless ISP)
This mode can let you access the AP of your wireless ISP and share the
same public IP address form your ISP to the PCs connecting with the
wired Ethernet port of the device. To use this mode, first you must set
the wireless radio to be client mode and connect to the AP of your ISP
then you can configure the WAN IP configuration to meet your ISP
->ROUTER + DHCP WITH DOUBLE NAT
IN ALL CASES:
* WIRELESS RADIO MUST BE ON
* RADIO MUST BE IN 'CLIENT' MODE.
* USE THE 'SITE SURVEY' PAGE TO FIND YOUR WIRELESS NETWORK AND CONNECT
Make sure all security for your wireless network is OFF when trying to
connect. Turn on security (WPA) after everything is working.
Start by trying (1):
(a) Get ALFA connected to your wireless network
(b) See if DHCP works for wired clients of the ALFA.
