Wireless Adapter Question

I have an old access point for 802.11B - will this work as a wireless adapter for the Neptune Apex Classic? Most of the reviews I read are for 802.11N

Thanks in advance

If you can put it in bridged mode it should work. AP's are a bit different than a wireless adapter.

If not you can buy bridges or extenders for $15 shipped now. It worth it for the space and energy saving over an old access point. Not to mention the hassle of trying to get it to work. Mine was very easy to get communicating with my network. Not so easy to get the Neptune communicating, but I managed somehow,

Awesome that's good to know. Can you point me in the direction of a bridge or extender?

I use this

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wavlink-300...oAAOSw-0xYRhRk

you can connect two wired ethernet to the same module to get wifi connection.
just follow the instructions to setup as bridge.
