Set Up TP Link (TL-WA500G) As Wireless Access Point. When we need to share an Internet connection for public, that all people on the covered area could have a connection to access internet. We must need a Wireless Access Point. Wireless Access Point is a station that transmits and receives data. With this Access Point we can connect all user or people within the network, And alsoWireless Access Point serve as the point of interconnection between the WLAN and a fixed wire connection on the network.

If you've bought a new Wireless Access Point, you must set it up before you use to connect all user within network. All user that connect to your Access Point must have an IP Address, so they could comunicate with the other user. This is a very complicated once if you must set up one bya one a computer or user that connect to your own network. To solve a complicated IP Address setup for each user, we must use DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol).

  2. We can automatically assign a new IP address if you move a client to a different subnet.
  3. We can release the IP address of a computer that is offline and reassign the address to another computer.
  4. Address duplication is eliminated as DHCP automatically tracks IP address assignments.
  5. The DHCP server can detect unauthorized DHCP servers on the network.
And now follow this guide carefully to set up a Wireless Access Point on TP LINK (TL-WA500G).
