The Nexland Wavebase and Orinoco Wireless Combo
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.

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
(3) WAP (Wireless Access Point)
The Orinoco card (or something
similar) is required for a client to access the Wavebase.
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.
