What it means:
The configuration changes necesary to your LinkSys are minimal. All the current settings stay the same, only the distribut ion of IP addresses will be done by the LinSpot server now and WEP encryption needs to be disabled.
If this is already the case on your network, no further changes to the LinkSys are required.
Your LinSpot server will automatically distribute IP adresses on your local network in the same range and with netmask 255 .255.255.0
