Introduction to Networking
Purpose of Class
This class shows students how wireless access points can be used to connect networks.
Why Wireless Bridges Are Used
Creating a Wireless Bridge
Wireless bridges can be used to connect networks in separate buildings, or inside of buildings where network cable cannot be run.
You cannot use 2 wireless routers to create a bridge. One side HAS to be a dedicated Wireless Access Point
In the Wireless Access Point set the access point to Bridge mode, and then enter the MAC address of the Wireless Router or Access Point it is connecting to.
You can attach high powered antennas to the access points to make them work better.
If you are going to use real time communication the bridge should be created with 802.11n equipment
