WLAN Client Bridge

Article number: 55611

  • WLAN Client Bridge
  • Cable-connected Ethernet devices in the WLAN

Brings hardwired Ethernet devices into an existing WLAN

Routing a network cable to the location of wired LAN devices is often possible only with great effort. Over longer distances or with installations on mobile equipment (e.g. cranes and forklifts) a WLAN link may sometimes even be the only solution. In these cases the W&T WLAN Client Bridge connects individual devices or even entire device groups to a WLAN quickly, simply and reliably.

Simple application

Implementation as a pure bridge integrates LAN-side connected devices seamlessly into the IP subnetwork of the WLAN seamlessly and without any additional configuration, just as if they had their own WLAN interface. Startup is as simple as assigning an IP address for the WLAN Client Bridge and configuring the access data for the desired access point (SSID, WPA password), which is accomplished in just a matter of minutes.
