An access point is a mac-layer bridge

by robo_dev In reply to AP configuration

which means that it's internal IP configuration has nothing at all to do with whether a client can connect to the Internet.

Your 'router settings' that you post are the router that connects the wired ethernet switch to the Internet, correct?

Are there other wired LAN users configured who can get to the internet?

Assuming that your existing LAN (wired switch) can get to the Internet, then you simply must assign a static IP address to the AP, and you should be able to get to the web-based configuration page of the AP using that address.

Assuming that security has not been configured on the AP, then a wirelss client should be able to connect to the AP immediately, with no configuration. Since the AP is a mac-layer bridge, the wireless client should function exactly the same way a wired client will work.
