Wireless Access Point

By deadlypumpkin ·
Hi all,

I have a wired network in the range 192.168.1.x . I want to setup a wireless router as an access point so persons will be able to connect to the internet wireless without input. On the network the DSL Modem is plugged into a computer that has a bridge connection to the network switches. If i connect the wireless router into one of those points from the switch, and disable its DHCP, should I get internet. So far on 2 laptops I only get Local connection, but I get internet connectivity on my PSP and Blackberry smart phone. What am I doing wrong? Linksys WRT54G2 router being used.

on the wired side you give it a fixed IP address. On the wireless side you have it hand out IP addresses (DHCP). I've only set these up a couple of times and the hardest part was setting up the security which you say you don't want.

Wireless Access Point

I solved the problem. I left the wireless router on the same range when I was supposed to give it an address in a different range, I used and disabled DHCP server on it. So when new clients try to connect they get an IP Address from the DSL modem and not the router, that way its just an access point. Thanks for your help though.
