Setting up a CCTV system in a remote location couldn’t be easier. So you can view cows which are cavling for example. When a barn is located a few kilometres away, and CCTV is required, setting up a wireless bridge is a simple solution. This will save you time and money if it is a site that requires checks regularly.

Using a pair of our wireless access points to create a wireless bridge is as simple as the flick of a switch to pair the two devices, once the CCTV cameras are in place at the remote location and the recording unit is set up locally in your home or business.

This is just one example of where as wireless bridge can be utilized to save time and money for somewhere that may need constant attention or regular attention to make sure there are no problems on site.

What you’ll require

Setup of a basic wireless bridge for a CCTV system

You need two NanoBeams
You need a laptop/computer with an ethernet port (to connect the LAN cable)
You need two patch cables (one goes from NanoBeam to PoE injector port labled “PoE” and the other goes from PoE injector port labled “LAN” to computer)

We assume the IP address of the device that connects to the internet to be “192.168.0.1” with a subnet mask of “255.255.255.0”.
This device is normally provided by your internet service provider.
It is called a router or modem and is a “gateway”.

Place both NanoBeams beside laptop/computer.

SETTING UP DEVICE A

Connect first NanoBeam (A) to the computers ethernet port with a patch cable from it’s PoE injector device port labled “LAN”

Change the IP address of the computers ethernet port to “192.168.1.1” and subnetmask “255.255.255.0”
open a web browser and go to “http://192.168.1.20”
Enter as follows: username: admin password: ubnt and press enter

Click on the “wireless” tab and the following for each;
Wireless Mode: Access Point
WDS: no enable
SSID: A (This can be whatever you like eg:  Videplus Access Point)
Channel width: 20 Mhz
Channel Shifting: Disable
Frequency, MHz: auto
Frequency List, MHz: no enable
Auto Adjust EIRP Limit: enable
Security: WPA-AES
WPA Authentication: PSK
WPA Preshared Key: 123456789

Click “change” at the bottom right and then “apply” at the top.

Wait a few seconds for device to reboot.
You may have to log back in with the username:ubnt password:ubnt

Next click on “Network” tab and enter for each:
Network Mode: Bridge
Disable Network: None
Managment Interface: BRIDGE0
Managment IP Address: Static
IP address: 192.168.0.100
Netmask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Primary DNS IP: 8.8.4.4
Secondary DNS IP:

Click “change” bottom right and then “apply” at the top.

Wait 30 seconds or so for device to reboot.
Now unplug the patch cable from the PoE injector devices port labled “LAN”.
Check that the lights on the radio/device (A) are still on and that the device is powered.

SETTING UP DEVICE B

Connect second NanoBeam (B) to the computers ethernet port with the patch cable from the SECOND PoE injector device port labled “LAN”
open your web browser and go to “http://192.168.1.20”
enter username: ubnt and password: ubnt and press enter

Click on “wireless” tab and enter for each:
Wireless Mode: Station
SSID: click on “Select” and wait for device “B” to scan for device “A” which has SSID name “A” as configured in above step.
In pop-up windows select the device “A” and then select “Lock to AP”
Channel Width: 20 MHz
Channel Shifting: Disable
Frequency, MHz: auto
Frequency List, MHz: no enable
Auto Adjust EIRP Limit: enable
Security: WPA-AES
WPA Authentication: PSK
WPA Preshared Key: 123456789

Click “change” bottom right and then “apply” at the top.
Wait a few seconds for device to reboot.
Again you may have to log back in with username:ubnt and password:ubnt

Next click on “Network” tab and enter for each:
Network Mode: Bridge
Disable Network: None
Managment Interface: BRIDGE0
Managment IP Address: Static
IP address: 192.168.0.101
Netmask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Primary DNS IP: 8.8.4.4
Secondary DNS IP:

Click “change” bottom right and then “apply” at the top.
Wait a few seconds for device to reboot.

Both devices/radios are now configured and can be moved to permanent location.
The ethernet port of the computer can now be changed back to IP address “192.168.0.2” and subnet mask “255.255.255.0” or DHCP.

You now have a wireless bridge set up.
