Setting Up Wireless

Recommended Posts

I'm having a bit of trouble setting up my cable modem, router, and wireless AP. Right now, I have my cable modem sitting at 192.168.100.1 as well as the router. The router is setup for DHCP so the people connected in grab an IP address and then are on the internet. The WAN ethernet is going from that port on the router to the cable modem. However, when I plugged in the wireless AP and went to set it up, I lost Internet. I had it setup for the same ip address (192.168.100.1). Do I need to have my router setup as a router or gateway? I can figure out the security stuff for the wireless, I just need to get the initial setup working.... ;)

Thanks.

Every device needs to have its own IP address. Your problem may be as simple as trying to have both devices at the same address (192.168.100.1).

Good luck

Buehgler is right.

Every device/host needs a different IP address. For example, if your router/gateway is 192.168.100.1, then you could assign 192.168.100.2 for your wireless AP. Static IPs are a good idea for things like routers, APs, and proxy servers.

I also suggest that you check your wireless access point for a built-in DHCP setting. Turn it off. Your router should be the only device issuing addresses.
