I am working on an old robot ( from 2000, with original softward and hardware. redhat 7.3 OS, that has an Onboard PC connected through an ethernet hub to a Proxim RangeLan 7920 Ethernet Adapter). All of these devices are contained inside of the robots frame.
The OS does not have a GUI. The PC is Dual CPU Pentium 2 333mhz with 128 mb ram.
I'd like to connect to the robot wirelessly through the RangeLan Adapter via my laptop.
How would I go about configuring the adapter or finding out its IP Address so that I can ssh to the robot? Does the adapter even have an IP address or is it just a MAC repeater?
The RangeLAN2 7920 Ethernet Adapter is designed for plug-and-play installation. Plug it in the Ethernet port of any device for connection to the wireless RangeLAN2 or OpenAirTM network. External switches and an easy-to-use configuration menu accessible via a serial port are provided if required.
