Uverse Bridge for Access Point connection
I have been reading the forum all afternoon and have decided that I am not simply failing to read enough to find my answer.
I need to be able to plug a device into an ethernet outlet in a location that I cannot get a cable to. My gateway (RG) in in my office closet and I need for it to talk to a device in my security alarm panel. This device does not have any wireless capability and connects to the internet via a rj45 connection.
I started looking for a wireless bridge to achieve this connection but I couldn't find anything that I felt confident that it would be compatible with the ATT RG. So, I am hoping that someone has had success with a wireless bridge and will share the model number with me.
I particularly would like to not have to change anything in the RG 3800hgv-b since everything else is working pretty well as it is. If necessary I am confident that I can make the changes, but I don't think I want to put my RG in bridge mode, I am hoping that is what the bridge will do. As an example, I was chasing down a netgear unit, wnce2001, and one of the forums said it wasn't compatible with the ATT RG.
Anyone out there able to recommend what may actually be called an access point brand and model? It will be single use, low data transfer, and I just need it to basically duplicate the use of a cable. Thanks in advance.
In case someone is curious, the unit I need to plug in is called a AD2USB device that will make my alarm system visible to my network.
