Problem being, I have to figure out how to get it configured to my home network

You just wanted something to connect you to the WiFi you already have right?

I'm fairly certain you can do it with the Print Server after some tweaking...but in the future, just order one of these:
http://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-Wirel...p_ob_e_title_0

I use this to connect my 400 disc BluRay player to the net for updates and catalogs.

You'd be connected by now too

be back...gonna check out the manual

Ok from what I read you basically want to set your laptop to use 92.168.1.100 as its IP then connect wired to the PS at 192.168.1.102

Once there you want to find (there is no screens of the config page so that's the best I can give ya) the SSID section and enter your network info.

Dammit...I need to RTFM more myself as opposed to telling all the lemmings that call my support station that (don't tell them or I'll never live it down)


On the 192.168.0.102 (sorry messed it up the first time...there is a 0 not a 1) page you want the "Wireless Settings" link

Then choose "Select Existing Network"
Connect to yours
Plug the BCS in (you assigned this an IP on your network already I'm assuming)
And BAM it should be up

I've mentioned this before on another thread, but after you think that you have your wireless bridge setup properly for your network, verify it before plugging in the BCS. You can verify that the bridge is working properly by connecting a laptop to it. (make sure the laptop's own wireless is disabled, so it has to go through the bridge).
Its much easier to get the bridge working when you can see what's happening on the other side.. A laptop is much nicer than that BCS when setting up a bridge.

Also, its recommended that you set your BCS to a static IP when using a wireless bridge. This bypasses any weird startup timing issues that you could run into with DHCP.

Funny, during the girls loooooong pauses, I figured it out on my own. It is working perfectly now. The KEY, was logging in to my home router and transferring all of those setting to the bridge, then I assigned the bridge an IP in the range that my home network allows and bam... the BCS is running a process now, watching the SSRs blink

Thanks dudes. Looks like I just needed another hour.

Almost there Pol. I bet you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Speaking of lights... I have a short vid coming up from YouTube. The brewery is finished.

EDIT:
Here is the rig, living and breathing on its own. The pulse of the system is clearly visible
