Subject: New WiFi router 

I configured a new wifi bridge for a GPIB Instruments.

The some facts are described on https://wiki-40m.ligo.caltech.edu/Network

The setting up wasn't so straight forward. I added more details there as a linked page.
One thing I had to do with the martian wifi router was that I had to separate the name of SSIDs for 2GHz and 5GHz networks.


Now the data download from Agilent is super fast!
The first establishing the connection takes the most of the time, and the data transfer takes literary nothing.
