    We are getting ready to move into WHQL NDIS two card test.
    I did see a picture for the two machine test but no connection picture
    for the two card test.
    Also looking at the picture of the two machine test. You are supposed
    to hook up two access points via their Ethernet ports and it looks
    like nothing else connected to those ports. How do the access points
    get their IP address? Wouldn't you need a DHCP server somewhere?

    For 802.11, two-machine test is actually two-card test. There are only 2 test cards,
    one on HCT client and another on server.
    The APs are just connected to a eth hub. You can assign static IP to them and
    connect to this hub to configure the AP thru web interface or snmp.
    You can connect to the APs all the time, to monitor statistics.
    However APs don't need IP address except for management.
