Vonets VAP11G

I am a fan of wired ethernet connections.

This may or may not have to do with my interest in ancient/obsolete/old workstations and their operating systems.

You can forget to use a wifi connection with your old Sun Ultra 1 but you can probably use wired ethernet.

However, sometimes you cannot run an ethernet cable.

Enter the VAP11G.

You can power the VAP11G from a USB port but just forget about it (remember, old workstations = no USB). Just use a 5V adapter and you are ready to go,

I was lucky as my unit can be configured with its webpage. So, just connect to the VAP11G ( or just use wifi as you will probably want to do this with a somewhat recent personal computer) and configure it to connect to your Wi-Fi network.

Done that, plug the VAP11G in an old swith and let your DHCP server work its magic.
