OBTAINING AN IP ADDRESS FROM THE DHCP SERVER FIXED IP ADDRESS SETTING AP-12 MANAGER SETTING EXAMPLES IP CONFIGURATION REFERENCES
When connecting the AP-12 to a bridging type modem (or in bridging mode) directly, a global IP address may be assigned to theAP-12 from the modem, according to the modem settings. When a global IP address is assigned to the AP-12, an illegal operator, such as a cracker, a hacker, may access it. To avoid such access, connect a router between the modem and the AP-12. The bridge type modem assigns a global IP address to the connected PC (only one). The router type modem assigns a private IP address (e.g.192.168.x.x) to theconnected PCs via the HUB by the built-in routing function. The AP-12 can be connected to a router type modem directly. Contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) if you do not know your modem type.
About exchanging the AP-12 or the PC connected to the AP-12. The AP-12 memorizes the communication settings between the AP12 and the connected PC. Thus, if the AP-12 and/or the PC connected to itchanged, communication may fail. In such case, turn the AP-12 power OFF. After waiting a few seconds, turn the power ON again.
