Question about HP AdvanceStack 10:10 LAN Bridge MB (28673A#ABA)

1 Answer

Will a computer with 10/10 LAN connect to my wireless LAN?

I have a LINKSYS wrt54g wireless router connected to my main computer. Will a second computer with an internal 10/10 LAN detect my wireless system or will I have to purchase and install a LINKSYS wireless converter in the 2nd computer?

Thanks!

The 10/100 LAN is a wired connection. If it is connected to the wrt54g through an ethernet cable yes it will see anything on the wireless connection but if you want the computer to use a wireless connection then you will need to get an 802.11B or 802.11G wireless adapter. The wireless adapter does not have to be Linksys but it does generally make thing easier if you use all the same brand.

To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of therouter with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to beconfigured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in allthe laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wirelesssettings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wirelessrouter.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default PW (write it down and putit in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Wireless Bridging is used to connect two LAN segments via a wireless link. The two segments will be in the same subnet and look like two Ethernet switches connected by a cable to all computers on the subnet. Since the computers are on the same subnet, broadcasts will reach all machines, allowing DHCP clients in one segment to get their addresses from a DHCP server in a different segment. You could use a Wireless Bridge to transparently connect computer(s) in one room to computer(s) in a different room when you could not, or did not want to run an Ethernet cable between the rooms. Contrast this with Client Mode Wireless, where the local wireless device running DD-WRT connects to the remote router as a client, creating two separate subnets. Since the computers within the different subnets cannot see each other directly, this requires the enabling of NAT between the wireless and the wired ports, and setting up port forwarding for the computers behind the local wireless device. Segments connected via Client Mode Wireless cannot share a DHCP server. pictoral In the case in which we are interested, a wireless device running DD-WRT such as a WRT54G is configured as a Wireless Bridge between a remote wireless router (of any make/brand) and the Ethernet ports on the WRT54G.

I have the wireless -G music bridge (model WMB54G) - I had forgotten the password so I reset it - Now, my computer will not recognize it - any suggestions?


The Linksys Wireless-G Music Bridge (WMB54G) has a web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.
Step 1:
Open a web browser.

Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP Address, then press [Enter].

NOTE: The default IP Address of a WMB54G is 192.168.1.210.


NOTE: If the IP address of the WMB54G has been changed, type the WMB54G's new IP address in the Address bar instead.

The WMB54G's IP address can be changed by:

    • Running the WMB54G's setup CD.

    • Changing it on the WMB54G's web-based setup page.

If you forgot the WMB54G's IP address you can:

  • Press the Reset button underneath the antenna for 30 seconds.

NOTE: This procedure will reset the WMB54G to factory defaults. Any settings on the Music Bridge will be erased. The Music Bridge's IP address will be 192.168.1.210and the password will be "admin" after resetting.





Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank, type "admin" in the Password field, then click OK.

NOTE: If the password of the WMB54G has been changed, type the Music Bridge's new password in the Password field instead.

Siemens 4200 2 computers


Yes and No! The 4200 gives you the option to connect via USB or Ethernet. You can only use one or the other to connect. You have two options. The first DOES involve another "gadget". The second does not!

Solution #1

I realize you're not looking to use additional equipment, but a network hub, switch or router will give you what you need. You can pick up a very inexpensive router for under $50 or even better a wireless router for a few bucks more.

I recommend a Linksys Wireless Router (Model - WRT54G) as it is very user friendly and comes ready to use. Just connect the port labeled "Ethernet" to the "WAN" port of the Linksys Wireless Router. Then connect both of your computers to any of the four "LAN" ports.

Solution #2

You can connect the first computer directly to the 4200 via USB and connect the second computer directly to the first computers ethernet port using a Network Crossover cable. Without a router of hub between the two computers, a crossover cable is required to allow them to talk to each other.

Once you have them connected to each other, on the first computer open the network connection properties for your internet connection (will be the one setup during the install of the USB modem) and click "Share This Computers Internet Connection".

Now the first option is surely the most reliable and keeps the traffic separate.

Hope this help!
