I hope someone can shed light on this dilemma..Here is my problem I have a Linksys BEFSR81 wired router, and a generic (no name) 2.4Ghz. wireless access point router....
and a Linksys EG0801W 8 port switch.
Here is my set up thus far and works and has for years..
Modem Bridged to Router PPPoE
Working mode: Gateway
LAN IP 192.168.1.1
Connected to 8 Port Switch where all PC's are connected and is the Wireless Access Point.
DHCP is Disabled, all clients on the Linksys have assigned addresses, I run several servers that require that they stay on the same port.
So on all client machines
My Access point is connected to the Linksys, from the Uplink port of the Access point.
When Adding my Wireless for my daughter's and my laptop I was able to get on the net by assigning IP's and DNS numbers... I connect to several networks when traveling and have to always go from DHCP Auto and reinstall IP's and DNS when I return home..as does my daughter.
I have tried several times to set the Wireless Access point to Router Mode and DHCP so WE could just start up and go like we do most places, everything auto assigned.
I guess where I am getting confused is the IP, Gateway and Subnet for the Access Point..
I tried this on the wireless access point
Working Mode Router
Subnet:255.255.255.0 and 255.255.255.252
When I try to put 192.168.1.1 into gateway field on the wireless it tells me it is a bad IP address..
I have tried everyting I can think of as far as IP's, Gateways, Routing.. any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
So it?s :
Any help on this problem will be appreciated.
