The BigPond Elite network gateway is of real interest to me. As I'm not
knowledgeable with wireless, I was wondering if you, or anyone, could
provide a run down on how to get this thing to work on my linux system,
which is Fedora 12 ... a desktop box? I have a home network of 3
computers connected by ethernet and I'm on dial-up in a rural location.
I would only want one computer connected to the internet with the
wireless network gateway.
It's relatively easy because it's just a wireless modem/router. The
instructions come with the router, but it's a matter of connecting to
the wireless or the ethernet network (it has a 4 port switch in it),
pointing your web browser at the gateway, log in using the default admin
login & password, configure it to talk to bigpond (provide your bigpoind
user name & password) and then you're away.
Nothing to configure on the Linux end, other than normal networking or
wireless LAN stuff.
Thanks for that ... normal networking with ethernet I can do. Ben.
