Title: making scope accessible over wireless
Post by: Gibson486 on November 01, 2019, 01:32:21 pm
We just got a R&S RTB2000 series scope. It comes with the Ethernet interface. Is there a way to make this a wireless server of some sort so any one can access the external remote interface just by typing the ip address?  Note that this is going in a lab that is fully wireless. Ethernet jacks are normally not available.

Yep.  This is what I do in my home lab.  I use a wifi repeater like this one:

Works great.

And congrats on the RTB2000!
