Tip for RRC to WiFi
« on: 2010-11-05, 14:52:40 »
At my Control site I have an ADSL 28Mb connection. To connect the router
to the shack I needed about 15 to 20 meter of Ethernet cable and also pass two
walls...

The solution was a "Buffalo Air Station High Power Ethernet Converter" model WLI-TX4-G54HP.

Working UFB and saved me a lot of cabling and work.

After having some "Murphy" problems doing RemoteRig demos, I also
decided to order a WLAN bridge. I found something that is very small
and even can be powered by the PC's USB port: The Netgear WNCE2001

Ditto on the Netgear WNCE2001! It works perfectly with my Linksys WRT54G router here at home. I have not taken it on the road yet, but I see no trouble if the wifi signal is good and the bandwidth is available. In general, the user needs to configure the adapter using his web browser, pointed to www.mywifiext.net. The PC you use should not be connected to any other network during configuration, according to the instructions.  Here in the US, the best price I found was 60 USD at staples.com, with free 1-day shipping.
