AbstractCurrently a wireless network is in the process of being installed in the offshore engineering basin (OEB) and clear water tow tank (CWT) area. This is a pilot project with future plans to expand the proposed network to include the entirety of the Institute for Ocean Technology (IOT) building. This network will prove to be especially useful in the OEB and CWT areas since the physical layout of the areas are large and open. Currently model tests in the OEB use either Bluetooth radios or an 802.11G wireless network for data collection. The new wireless network will be able to provide a more standardized and secure method of data collection for future tests. Also this network will allow workers to easily setup and work in various areas of the building without first having to find a network connection point. This report documents the steps taken to install and configure this wireless network at the Institute for Ocean Technology and may be used as a guide to aide in the installation of future additions to the network. In conjunction with this, this report will also outline some of the steps required to configure client computers to connect to the network.
