wireless conectivity

By mbrook3607 ·
I have been given the task of researching the possibility of a salesman using his laptop for demonstrations of a networkable digital video recorder. He wants to accomplish this without having to run cable from the unit to his laptop. Am I correct inassuming that all I have to do is to put a wireless pci ethernet card in the unit and then put a wireless card in his laptop and make sure both are set to the same subnet with ip's within that subnet? Any feed-back would be greatly appriciated.

You also have to make sure that both devices are set to the same local id (specific to wireless devices) and the the places where he demonstrates are NOT using the same wireless configurations... because if they are, then he will probably not operate at that location.

If thereare any other electromagnetic devices (tv, radio, microwaves, satellites and mobile phones) between the laptop and the digital video recorder, he may experience interferance as well.

To avoid problems in client offices that are using wireless internally (more and more common), try using IR instead.

Assuming that the device is PC based a wireless NIC would do the trick (in theory). However bandwidth limitations may present issues (22Mbps max). Consider the reality that failure of a wireless connection (quite likely) will reflect badly on your salesman and your product. In some cases its's better (and safer)to choose the low tech option. I'd be inclined to use a direct wired connection.
