Hello All, I am having a problem setting up an Access Point. Here is my configuration. I have a Comcast Cable Modem that plugs in to a 24 port Netgear Switch. From the switch it plugs into the Linksys N wireless router with an IP of 10.1.10.76. I don't know the linksys model. But it is fairly new. I also have a Netgear WN604 N Access Point that plugs in to the same switch in another location away from the wireless router about75+ft. I configured the access points IP to be 10.1.10.130 with DHCP off. The cable modems default Gateway is 10.1.10.1 and it handles the dhcp. I can't set it up so that the cable modem plugs in to the wireless router first then the switch because of a security system. My Goal is to the the same identical SSID and Password for both the Linksys and Access point. Could someone please tell me what I am doing wrong. I don't think I can set it up as a repeater because it's to far away from the Linksys router. Any suggestion as to what I could do to accomplish this? Thanks Frank G.
