Wireless with laptop & RRC?
« on: 2010-08-05, 04:11:23 »
Back on 2010-03-02 (I think) Mike told us that we could use a wireless network by connecting the RRC to our laptop ethernet card (crossover cable, I presume,) and enabling WLAN sharing in the laptop. I need a little more guidance. In WinXP, are we talking about a network BRIDGE, or INTERNET CONNECTION SHARING, or something else? I have found some documents describing the WinXP bridge, and ICS, on the MicroSoft support site. I'm not sure which to use. Help!

"...You connect the TS-480 Head to the RRC and then the RRC to your laptops Ethernet port. The WLAN interface in Windows should be setup as shared. Then it works. Of course it also depends on the quality of the Internet connection.

Mike told me that you don't need a crossover cable the Control unit senses the connection and makes the crossover internally.
