Forgive my newbieness when it comes to wireless networking. I recently bought myself an wireless access point as a cop out as not to delve into the murky world of wireless nic's and linux. I just plugged my trusty rlt8139 into the 100 base T port on the the back of the AP and hey presto I can connect to my wireless router three floors down with my Linux server. So far so good.
Having fiddled around with the settings in my Pheenet WAP-554G (the documentation it is supplied with is very scant to say the least) it has several modes of operation :
AP Station Ad-hoc Station Infrastructure (the mode I am currently running) AP Bridge - Point to Point AP Bridge - Point to Multipoint AP Bridge - WDS Unversal repeater
I think I know what the unversal repeater does but can someone explain the other modes? My other question is can I force the access point to pass all traffic from the wireless side to the wired side only because the devil in me can be a little nosey at times ;o)
