    Re: Using wireless PDA's to register on ePortal

    I'm not trying to connect via wireless, i've just had a battle with it and realised when i removed the proxy settings from internet explorer it worked. I also found the manual on the belkin website, it is supposed to be for a home network, whoever was here before me bought it so i'm not taking the blame for that.

    Re: Using wireless PDA's to register on ePortal

    I'm currently trying to reuse a Buffalo router for the task, god its not easy, it just REALLY loves using 192.168.*.* and won't allow our DHCP server to give IPs to wireless clients (10.*.*.*) and as such you can't remotely connect to it, have to connect directly.

    Re: Using wireless PDA's to register on ePortal

    What model number?

    I've got several buffalos running here WBR-G54's and WLA-G54's and a few of the compact ones too.

    Configure them all via the web interface from a wired connection.

    Re: Using wireless PDA's to register on ePortal

    a WBR2-G54 funnily, I'm configuring it from the web GUI with a laptop connected to the buffalo, I would have just prefered for it to use our own IP range instead of the 192.168.*.* one and be remotely configurable.

    It works when bridging two of them with no wireless clients, but when you want it as an access point, nah ah. If I had more time i'd probably figure it out, but i'm currently also battling with Nelson Thornes' awful software

    Re: Using wireless PDA's to register on ePortal

    Hi Midget, I have a Buffalo at home and at work; on 172.16.8.x and 10.x networks respectively. They both allow wireless clients access to the network and get IPs from the primary DHCP server without problems.

    PM me if you'd like a copy of the settings we use.

    Re: Using wireless PDA's to register on ePortal

    I can't believe that the WBR2 configuration would be any different to a WBR which I have here next to me.

    Clicking on advanced setup takes me straight into wireless settings.

    Lan Port allows me to setup a static ip adress we a 10. range dhcp function is set to do not use.

    Wireless security settings for radius etc...

    Make sure you're running latest firmware.

    i'll try updating firmware, atm it wont let me have a 10.*.*.* address w/ a 255.255.0.0 subnet

    webman: That would be very useful if you could saveout that bin file. thank you.

    QQ: Why is network kit designed for "home" so bloody difficult to use?

    Re: Using wireless PDA's to register on ePortal

    We have a couple of teacher using PDA access of Eportal for electronic registration and it seems to work ok.. (most use laptops) at least I don’t get that many can you fix my pda for eportal requests. We use HP HX4700’s and some HX2XXX cant remember the model now… they seem to work reasonably well.. our whole school has wifi since we have staff and students with laptops, we have Netgear WAG102 WAG302 and WG102s… these APs are slightly more than most but the do POE which is a must if your putting APs all over the place or hiding them in the false ceiling with no sockets up there… so they are out of site.. rather than in sight one day gone the next!!.. they also have autocell which means they chat to each other and keep there strength and channel optimal.. and the WAGs work on 2.4 and 5Ghz so you get twice the bandwidth usefull if you have lots of laptops on one AP… so long as tbe laptops are A/B/G too.. not really relevant to PDAs and eportal though!!
