Router (wireless): Asus WL-520gu
Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/12/10) mini-usb-ftp (SVN revision 14929)
Router FCC ID: msqwl520gugc
Computer: Macbook Pro (OS X 10.6.8)
I have a microcontroller ("Axon"; has a USB port) that I will connect to the USB port on the router.
I need to connect with my laptop to the router wirelessly to command the Axon (Not using the internet). There will also be a network (IP) camera connected via ethernet to LAN1 of the router to stream to my laptop. This is going to be wifi controlled electric vehicle.
1) Which mode should the router be in: client mode (different subnets), client bridged mode (same subnet), access point, etc...? Here's a link to the available modes. <---I figured this out; I'm using Client Bridge.
2) Can I use the setup I described or is it necessary to have a 2nd router connected to my laptop? <---It looks like one router is ok. (read below for more info/update)
**I'm a novice to networking and have learned everything I know about it in the last week (reading/googling all day).
Thank you for your advice
I put the router in Client Bridge mode and used it as a wireless network adapter for my laptop to connect to my roommate's laptop. His laptop (the one I connected to) had created a peer to peer network and we did some file-sharing to confirm.
I posted my results incase anyway has a similar question in the future.
