Question

How Do I Configure the Spectrum 24 Card in the VRC894x?

Answer

For basic WLAN configuration of the VRC894X, it is necessary to configure the ESSID and set either a fixed IP address or select DHCP.

To set the ESSID:
1.      Select Start, Settings, Control Panel, and then select: Spectrum 24 FH Settings if the unit is a VRC8942 (2Mbs radio) or Spectrum 24 Settings if the unit is a VRC8946 (11Mbs radio).

2.      Set the ESSID for your network and then press OK.

To set the IP address or select DHCP:
1.      Select Start, Settings, Control Panel, Network. Scroll down and then select: SLACE1: Spectrum24 WLAN Driver if the unit is a VRC8942 (2Mbs radio) or SLA4IND41: Spectrum24 HR WLAN Driver if the unit is a VRC8946 (11Mbs radio).

2.      Press the Properties button and select whether DHCP is to be used, or specify an IP address, then press OK, OK. ( At this stage ignore the message that suggests you should remove the radio card!)

3.      Once both of the above stages are complete select Start, Programs, Save Registry; Yes.

4.      To finish installing the new settings warm boot the terminal.
