We are going to be at a trade show where I will need to set up a WAP. The trade show will give up a public IP address and like 10 additional addresses for Internet access.
I need to put about 80 devices on the wireless so the 10 they are giving won't be enough. So, I need to setup a private network using a router and then add the WAP to my private network and hand out DHCP.
What I'm looking for is a low end simple router with a simple setup/wizard that I can use for this. I won't be attending the show and it will be someone w/out a lot of networking experience so I need to have them easily be able to change the addresses w/out any problems.
I will also say that using an actual wireless router is out of the question as we will be using a Ruckus WAP we already have.
Could someone please recommend a router that might do this w/out to much cost or learning? Thanks....
Almost any router with an ethernet WAN port should be able to do this for you.
Something like the Netgear WNR1000 (http://www.netgear.co.uk/home/products/wirelessrouters/simplesharing/wnr1000.aspx)
If you use NetScaler you will want to see these guides. The NetScaler How To Guides show administrators how to get NetScaler up and configured by providing instructions for common scenarios and some not so common ones.
David Varnum recently wrote up his impressions of PRTG, based on a presentation by my colleague Christian at Tech Field Day at VMworld in Barcelona.
Thanks David, for your detailed and honest evaluation!
Viewers will learn how to connect to a wireless network using the network security key. They will also learn how to access the IP address and DNS server for connections that must be done manually.
