John_R Posted June 13, 2018 Report Share Posted June 13, 2018 Hey All, I'm working on a project with a couple of V570's that I would like to connect to a wifi network, mainly to avoid running cables to them. I'm no IT whiz, but but it seems like this should be pretty straight forward. I have 4 old Access Points from a different project, which I have setup as wireless bridges, with each having the MAC address of the other three loaded as their contact list. The LAN IP's have been set to the same subnet that I use for all my wired PLC projects that connect to our network (all of these I can connect to from my workstation. My thought process was that I can connect one of my AP's to the network, and an AP to each of my PLC's, and through some computer magic they would all be happy and talk to each other. One thing I am seeing at this point that confuses me is; In info mode on the V570, on the ethernet screen, there is a box telling you if you have communication, when I plug into a computer it shows "communication established 100baseT", but when I plug into one of my AP's I get "no link for tcp communication". I know the AP LAN ports are good as they have all been plugged in to configure. Anyone have any suggestions? Or have experience making this work? Or a better way to go about setting up something like this? Regards JohnR Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
