Since the default Nano IP address is in the very common range 192.168.1.x, and we cannot risk having the same range on our own local LAN as the WLAN ashore, we have changed the original Nano IP from 192.168.1.20 to 192.168.10.20. We have also activated the Nano’s DHCP server which means that the computer can get network settings assigned automatically (an IP in the range 192.168.10.100 to 200, plus the Gateway and DNS server = IP of the Nano). We still need to set the computer to acquire the IP automatically (see end of next page). The changes made on the previous page are memorized but not yet in effect. Only after clicking “ Apply ” with they take effect. Since we still need to make some other changes, we’ll “Apply” them all later. DO NOT APPLY YET!

Page 7 • Click on the Link Setup tab • Click Apply when it appears at the top: Now all the changes will come into effect. Note : At this point communication with the Nano is lost because we still need to change the computers IP address to be in the same (new) range as the Nano (192.168.10.x). The setting can be either fixed (manually to e.g. IP=192 168.10.21, Gateway/Router/DNS=192 168.10.20), or automatic which is simpler and more flexible (as it allows you to take the computer to another wired network and automatically acquire the settings): From now on, all these settings will remain in place and you’ll only need to take step #3 to connect to an new WIFI access point. That’s a relief! Change Nano mode to Station (i.e. receiver or ‘client’) Make sure output power is on max Leave rest as shown. Click Change Windows : refer back to page 1 and 2 to open Internet Protocol Properties: • Mac OS: refer to pages 3 and 4 and change Configure from Manually to DHCP, then click Apply . Change like this: Then click OK twice. YES

Page 8 • In the browser address bar type (the new address of the Nano) then press the Enter key. • Click on the Link setup tab, then on Select (second line at right): • Click on Change, wait ; click Apply at top of new page, wait a few seconds for connection (some access points take a while to connect). That’s it. There should be 3 or more LEDs lit on the back of the Nano. This is the strongest in the list. Any figure lower than about 90 is normally usable. Select a strong signal (without encryption) by clicking in the button. Then click “ Select Clicking once on Signal ” will sort the list with the strongest one at the bottom • Optional: to verify the connection, click on Main tab. This page has no settings, only information to confirm a connection. (You may have to refresh the browser page after a while). A number here means that the Nanostation has associated with the WIFI station A number here means that the Nanostation has received an IP address (also see below). This number will increase with long distance connections Note: The numbers here tell us that the WIFI access point has assigned all the necessary numbers to the Nanostation for connecting to the internet.
