I'm switching a small home/office network from a Linksys cable/DSL router to an older Intel AP1210 Wireless gateway 2 unit. My problem is on the broadband reception side. Internet is accessed via a wireless roof antenna and radio. After confiquring the router to the same prameters as the linksys and re-setting the radio by powering it off and on I still have no broadband access. My ISP says it is a MAC address conflict with the radio. Any thoughts on this? Should I bit the bullet and buy a more current wireless router? or... Confiqure the wireless router with out DHCP enabled and just use it as a hub for local wireless? Thank you Joe

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

my first question is where did you get the wireless access point at? was it used? does it have mac filtering, go through it and make sure there is no security settings that would cause the machines to not be able to see it, also i hope that you have the Wireless cards that are compatible with the access point, otherwise your not gonna get anywhere…if you can get the cards to see the access point (which shouldn’t be an issue if the access point and cards are completely functional) then you should be able to access the internet, i have set up a wireless small office that had a direct wireless internet link that was on the roof and the linksys that i bought for the company worked fine, without any interference from the roof, so i would mess with some settings, maybe try resetting the router to remove all settings, and adding in only the mac address’s on the wireless cards that go into the machines…i would also suggest to not use DHCP because then i can park outside your house and access your network and internet ;) and i would do mac filtering if possible
