Nikon Coolpix P3 Review
By Movable Type Admin
WiFi Setup & Software
The Coolpix P3 can connect to any
computer (Windows XP Pro or Home Edition with SP3 or SP2, Mac OS X 10.3 or later) with
Nikon's PictureProject software that has builtin 802.11b or 802.11g WiFi or is hooked up
to a standard WiFi access point or router .
I was amazed how simple it was to get the P3 configured to my D-Link DI-624M router considering I had it setup for maximum wireless security with 128-bit WEP encryption enabled. The setup utility prompts you for all the wireless info that you can easily enter if you have your router's setup screens displayed in your browser - I just cut-n-pasted the 26 digit hexadecimal key which ensured that I got it all entered correctly.
The WiFi novice does not need to know much to get it all going and it works in Ad-hoc mode (connect to a computer with builtin WiFi) or Infrastructure mode (connect to WiFi LAN access point or router). Most notebook computers have WiFi builtin and WiFi routers for home or business users are incredibly cheap these days.
You setup a Profile for each wireless computer or printer that you wish to access, for
most people this will only be one but you just as easily configure profiles for your home
as well as your business or your friend's house or whatever. Using the optional Nikon
PD-10 wireless print adapter (about US$40) you can print wirelessly to any PictBridge
enabled photo printer.
Rotate the Mode Dial to the Wireless position.
Select a pre-configured Profile.
And select the wireless mode desired.
