Connecting to a Preexisting Network
Add an AirStation without changing your existing LAN conﬁ guration
1. Set the AirStation into Access Point Mode by moving the switch on the bottom from
AUTO to BRI.
2. Connect one of the AirStation’s LAN ports to an existing router or switch on your
network. Nothing should be plugged into the WAN port.
3. Open LAN Settings - LAN Port Settings and conﬁ gure the following settings:
IP Address =[192.168.11.1] (Specify an unused network address from the existing LAN.)
Subnet Mask=[255.255.255.0] (Use the same Subnet Mask as the existing LAN.)
DHCP Server Function=[Disable]
4. Restart PC.

The WHR-HP-G54’s external antenna will usually give the best
performance if oriented to point straight up. If your AirStation is
resting on its side, use the antenna’s swivel and twist function to
orient it pointed upward.
In some environments it’s desirable to further increase range by
installing an external, higher-gain antenna. External antennas come
in all shapes and sizes. Antennas also come with different connectors.
The WHR-HP-G54 has an RP-SMA connector on it. If your antenna
has a different kind of connector, you’ll need an adaptor.
To install a different antenna, unscrew the stock antenna from
the RP-SMA connector on top of the AirStation, and screw on the
connector or adaptor from your new antenna.
