WiFi Bullet and Linksys Router Config

Hello,

I noticed a while back that a few of you seem to know your way around the Bullet 2 as long distance wifi device.

I just bought one and put it up the mast with a POE and Cat 5e cable. It's working great sending a strong signal to the computer via ethernet and my "local area conection"

What I need to do and have tried with no success is connecting the bullet to the linksys router and getting wireless of the linksys.

When the bullet is connected to LAN of the Linksys, the Internet light comes on, so the signal is there. I just can't seem to connect the Linksys with my laptop. Do I need to go into my Networks and manually enter the router address??

Hope this makes sense

Meck

What you want to do is plug the bullet into the WAN/UPLINK/Internet port of your router. You may need to do some configuration on the router as well - for example it will need to be a DHCP client to the bullet.
