Access Point Connection: How to connect your Digital Sign Wirelessly Part Two

in latest new 1 min read

When setting up a digital sign that includes an access point and client, you'll receive a package with two antennas and other vital components. This setup is perfect for scenarios where the sign and the controlling PC need to communicate wirelessly over a distance. Here's how to install and connect these components.

 Components Overview In your setup kit, you should find the following items:

  • Two antennas
  • A Power over Ethernet (PoE) adapter with two marked ports: LAN and PoE
  • Two Ethernet cables

Step 1: Connect the First Antenna Start by locating the WAN/PoE port on the first antenna:

  • Take one of the Ethernet cables and connect it to the WAN/PoE port on this antenna.

Step 2: Connect to the PoE Adapter Now, take the other end of the cable you just connected to the antenna and plug it into the PoE port on the PoE adapter. This setup powers the antenna while allowing data transmission.

Step 3: Set Up the Connection to Your PC

  • Grab the second Ethernet cable and connect one end to the LAN port on the PoE adapter.
  • Connect the other end of this cable to the LAN port on your PC. This connection will enable your computer to communicate with the antenna, sending and receiving data necessary for the operation of your sign.

Step 4: Power the Adapter Finally, plug the PoE adapter into a nearby electrical outlet to power the system. Make sure all connections are secure and that the adapter is situated in a safe location to prevent accidental disconnections.

Conclusion Setting up your digital sign with an access point and client involves precise connections to ensure smooth communication between your sign and the PC. By following these steps carefully, you’ll ensure that your digital signage system is operational and effectively displaying content, controlled directly from your computer. Happy installation!
