Wi-Finding Duo: ZyXEL AG-225H And TRENDnet TEW-509UB

Adapter Mode

Using the devices in wireless adapter mode (known as 'Station Mode' with the ZyXEL device) is a fairly straightforward process. Just insert the adapter into a free USB port on your Windows PC, run the included software to install the drivers, and configure the device via the management program. The management program (Figure 2) for each product operates in a similar manner, and allows for a good deal more control than the standard Windows wireless "zero config" utility. Note that regardless of the devices' similarities - even down to very similar MAC addresses - the management program from one device will not work for the other.
