Wap11 & Befsr41

Discussion in 'Other Linksys Equipment' started by CoffeeAddict123, Dec 1, 2006.

  1. At my boyfriend's I have an existing wired network using a BEFSR41 and a DSL connection. One of my computers has wireless capabilities. Would I be able to "plug in" a WAP11 to the BEFSR41 generating a wireless signal that the wireless-equipped computer could recieve? If so, could I encrypt this signal?

    As an aside, I have a wireless network at my own place using a wireless router, so I understand how these things work. I'm just wondering if the WAP11 is the way to go when wanting to convert a wired network to have wireless capabilities.

    Yes, that's precisely the WAP is supposed to do and is designed to be.

    Assuming that the BEFSR41's default IP is, all you need is to plug the WAP11 to any of its LAN ports (and NOT in uplink port) and u shd get signals from the WAP to connect online wirelessly.

    WAP11 has only WEP as wireless security and its always better if u enable it.
