The Nexland Wavebase and Orinoco Wireless Combo

Introduction

Nexland, created in 1994, is a relatively new player in the global networking market. With an emerging market presence, they are difficult to locate at your favorite e-boutique or some online search engines such as Pricewatch.com. What does Nexland offer that's different than the likes of Netgear or DLink? In the case of the Wavebase and Orinoco wireless products, the possibility of unlimited IPSec tunnels and some features that may approach the likes of Cisco.

Description & Specifications

The Wavebase arrives with such a laundry list of features that frankly I'm going to recommend you download and read the manual for yourself. In this review it would take me over 20 pages to thoroughly cover ALL of them. I'm just not that long winded…

OK, so there are many features to wade through. As I see it, the Wavebase does three things.

(1) Four port 10/100Mbps Switch
(2) Router
(3) WAP (Wireless Access Point)

The Orinoco card (or something similar) is required for a client to access the Wavebase.

Setup

Since networking can be a rather hairy subject, I've included a working sample of a test configuration here at TargetPC. There exists an almost infinite number of configurations that will work, so just use this one for a guide.
