Why is a Static IP address needed to configure some Access Points?
Not all network devices are set to allocate IP addresses to the clients who connect to it automatically. This is normally done by a DHCP server (Dynamic Host Control Protocol) on the device and is not always enabled by default, this will mean that you will need to assign a Static IP address to your computer so you can communicate with it. A basic understanding of TCP/IP is needed to work with any network equipment. A good place to start is here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_address See this link also for a basic guide to entering a static IP address into your computer http://corz.org/comms/hardware/router/static.ip.address.php
Coax Seal Tape
Many wireless installers forget about this vital part of their installations and end up with expensive repairs a few months later. It is very important to seal all outside connector joints to prevent moisture from entering. It is best to use a self bonding type tape as these tend to give the best seal.
