Has anyone ever connected an RJ-45 WiFi dongle (like the one pictured) to their Lantronix UDS-10?  I'd like to put my backup TI & P-Box in another room and use it to get on the Internet but want to make sure I'm not wasting my time.

Would this work?  The Lantronix has it's own IP number, but wouldn't the dongle also need an IP number to communicate with the router?  Would one IP number get in the way and block the other in a series type or stacked arrangement?  I simply have no clue, but it would be great to have a WiFi-TI!

That thing is a WiFi bridge, and a bridge means that it will transparently connect one network to another. In this case, a network created between the lantronix and the doohickey on the ethernet side and your regular WiFi network and the thingamabob on the WiFi side of things. Typically, the dongle will be a DHCP server for the ethernet devices and a DHCP client on the WiFi network. It will 'mirror' the devices on the ethernet side of the bridge (in your case the Lantronix) with an IP address appropriate for the LAN network.

 

All this means that it should surely work, but you will need to reconfigure some things. Shouldn't be hard though. Often, the devices with one ethernet port like the one you show here simply support just one device on the ethernet side of the bridge which tends to make setup a bit more straightforward.

:thumbsup:  Thanks!  << THIS ONE >> has the WPA2 encryption that my router requires and the price seems right too.  :)

Now if anyone has hooked one up to their Lantronix or has a better suggestion as to which one to purchase, I'd like to hear from them!

I've got my UDS-10 plugged into an Edimax EW-7228APn configured as a wireless access point (to my Netgear ADSL router). Works fine - although some reviews say the AP is a pain to configure. I didn't have a problem.

 Yeah, my biggest concern is if it'll let me Telnet to it and configure it via the TI from Telco.
