transform an ip camera to wireless

Postby drmacchi » Sun Feb 07, 2010 8:09 pm

I'm going to buy an IP camera with ptz (optical 22x) and autotracking feature. It's IP based. I'd like to make it wireless and i found something from d-link (dwl-g810) that promises to transform everything has a lan port to wireless http://www.dlink.it/cs/Satellite?c=Prod ... FDLWrapper

Do you know Any other device , may already tested for that use ?

You can use almost any Access Point with WDS option.

With WDS you can extend the existing Wifi network from AP to AP.
When on the Ap wired network is available this can be used to connect wired devices.
There are also some WDS devices on the market without wired connection. This devices are just used for extending the WIFI signal.
I think also the Apple AirTunes can do this..it's very compact. Please check this first I'm not sure about the Ethernet connection of the AirTunes

Not sure Airport will work with my router: see little note found in Apple's site "AirPort Express can extend the range only of an AirPort Extreme or AirPort Express wireless network"

Until a few weeks ago I used an IP cam connected using a wire to a Linksys WRT54GS which was connected to another WRT54GS using WDS and the second WRT54GS was connected to my wired network. So this concept works, I used it for several years. I used the Tomato firmware in the WRT54GS.

Rene used the WRT54GS's as a wireless bridge, to connnect the wired IP-camera.

My reseller has this one, i see WDS feature is it good for my need ? (only 28 euros......)

EDIMAX
EW-7206APg Wireless 802.11b/g Access Point

Features

Entspricht dem Standard IEEE 802.11g/b
Unterstützt die Modi AP, Station, Bridge, WDS und Universal Repeater
Unterstützt die Verschlüsselungen WEP, WPA und WPA2
Unterstützt Radius Server mit EAP-MD5-Berechtigung
Abnehmbare RPSMA-Antenne
Unterstützt Web-Konfiguration und Firmware-Upgrade
Drahtloser IEEE 802.11g/b LAN Access Point
EW-7206APg ist eine Brücke zwischen dem verdrahtetem Ethernet und dem drahtlosen IEEE 802.11g/b-Netz. Mit EW-7206APg können die drahtlosen Clientstationen sowohl auf verdrahtete als auch auf drahtlose Netzwerkknoten zugreifen.

WDS Bridge-Modus (Repeater-Modus)
Die Funktion WDS (Wireless Distributed System) ermöglicht es EW-7206APg, gleichzeitig als ein drahtloser Access Point und als Repeater (mit anderen WDS-Supportgeräten) zu wirken. Die Benutzer können diese Fähigkeit benutzen, um ein drahtloses Netz für einen großen Raum wie Flughäfen, Hotels, Schulen usw. aufzubauen. Diese Fähigkeit ist auch nützlich, wenn Benutzer Netze zwischen Gebäuden überbrücken wollen, wo es unmöglich ist, die Netzwerkkabelverbindungen zwischen diesen Gebäuden zu benutzen.

Universal Repeater Modus
Wenn der Universal Repeater Modus aktiviert ist,g gleichzeitig wie ein drahtloser Access Point und ein AP-Client. Er benutzt die AP-Client-Funktion, um den Anschluss an einen Wurzel-AP (beliebiger AP) herzustellen, und die AP-Funktion, um alle drahtlosen Stationen in seinem Erschließungsgebiet zu bedienen. All diese Stationen im Erschließungsgebiet von EW-7206APg können zum Wurzel-AP überbrückt werden. Der Universal Repeater Modus ist eine sehr bequeme Möglichkeit, das Erfassungsgebiet Ihres drahtlosen Netzes zu erweitern.

Stations-Modus (AP-Client-Modus)
Sie können den EW-7206APg an den Ethernet-Port eines Netzwerkgeräts anschließen und den Stations-Modus aktivieren. Er verwandelt dieses verdrahtete Netzwerkgerät in ein drahtloses, ohne dass eine Konfiguration geändert werden muss.

Robust Wireless Security
Außer den Grundsicherheitseinstellungen wie ESSID und 64/128-Bit WEP-Verschlüsselung unterstützt der EW-7206APg auch die fortgSicherheitsfunktionen wie WPA, WPA2, MAC-Zugangskontrolle und verstecktes ESSID. Mit weiteren Adaptern von Edimax bieten wir eine Gesamtlösung, um ein sicheres drahtloses Netzwerk aufzubauen, damit das Eindringen jeglicher Hacker verhindert wird.

Abnehmbare RP-SMA-Antenne
EW-7206APg bietet einen Standardanschluss für eine RP-SMA-Antenne. Sie können jede RP-SMA-Antenne mit hoher Verstärkung anschließen, um das Erschließungsgebiet des drahtlosen LAN zu erweitern und die Leistung zu verbessern.

Web-Konfiguration
Sie können diesen Access Point mit einem Browser über die feundliche Web-Benutzerschnittstelle konfigurieren.

Just a small update.

I've bought two of the "EW-7206APg", and they work great in WDS mode.

This is really a cheap way of making IP things WiFi accessible :-)

Great!

I was a few days away from digging up the garden to make a wired connection between the main house and the garage. This seems to be the perfect solution for me.

Two questions:
.1.
I want to install two wired IP camera's around the garage. Both are connected to a simple switch/hub. Is it possible to connect the switch to the first EW-7206APg (in stead of a CAT5 cable from my router) and connect a second EW-7206APg to my router?

.2.
My wireless router is in the basement. There are places (top floor, back garden) that I lose the wifi signal on my wireless devices (iPhone, laptop etc...). Is the WDS also usefull to extend the wifi range?

Tnx
