The WiFi adapter can be plugged into any USB port. The Gx Camera
Ethernet Adapter then can be added to any existing WiFi network.
The USB/WiFi adapter is plugged into one USB port
Because the WiFi adapter antenna is located outside of the device
metal case, the signal reception is better compared to devices
employing WiFi adapter with antenna soldered on the electronics
circuits board. The USB 2.0 HiSpeed transfer rate 480 Mbps typically
do not bottleneck the WiFi transfers, which are usually slower.
Device with attached USB/WiFi adapter has to be configured over a
wired Ethernet connection exactly like the standard Gx Camera Ethernet
Adapter. However, the configuration page offers the WiFi adapter
USB/WiFi adapter configured to obtain IP address
dynamically through DHCP
There are two possibilities how to assign the WiFi adapter IP
address. The first possibility is to let the DHCP server assign it.
Because the Gx Camera Ethernet Adapter is accessed as a server, it is
necessary to assign a fixed address to it, so the clients always know
the address to which they should connect. It is usually a task of the
DHCP server configuration, which allows assigning a particular IP
address to the device with defined MAC address.
USB/WiFi adapter with manually configured IP
Another possibility is to configure the IP address of the Gx Camera
Ethernet Adapter manually.
The properly configured USB/WiFi interface can then be connect to
WiFi network. The configuration page indicates successful
