Windows XP Wireless User Guide Supplement

The information in this guide supplements the Solo 1200 Wireless User Guide or the Solo 9550 Wireless User Guide and provides examples of setting up and accessing an access point or peer-to-peer wireless network in Windows XP.

Creating a wireless Ethernet network

After you have turned on wireless Ethernet networks, you may want to create a new wireless Ethernet network. You can create either an access point or peer-to-peer wireless Ethernet network.

Access Point

An access point is a device that allows you to both join a wireless network and access a wired network at the same time. You can create an access point wireless network if you purchased an RG1000 or equivalent access point. The figure below shows an example of an access point network.

To create an access point wireless Ethernet network:

1. Click Start, then select Control Panel.
