Make a Sun Ray Wireless (Or any other wired device)

Some of my friends and colleagues claim that I'm a gadget guy. I think a lot of other people are much more gadget aquire'ers but I do my fair share of getting neat devices to make my life better, or come up with a way to use something else in a fresh manner.

One of the things that I've needed to do in the last year for some demos and proof of concepts is show a wireless Sun Ray. I also often see posted on our internal email aliases questions by other people on how to do the same thing. So, for what it's worth, here's what I've been using and recommending to people.

Check out the D-Link DWL-G730AP

This is a sweet little device that actually has 3 different modes of operation. It's about the size of a credit card, but thicker, it can be powered by wall power or better yet via USB. The 3 modes are Access Point mode, Access Point/Router mode, and Wireless Bridge mode.

I actually use and take this with me when I travel because you just don't know when you might need to turn a conference room in to a wireless network!

For the Sun Ray, I simply configure it as a wireless bridge, connect it's ethernet to the ethernet on the Sun Ray, tap into the USB on the Sun Ray for power and voila! you're running wireless!

Please send me the POC for setting up sun ray through a VPN network and the step by step procedure.
