    I have given the access point a static IP (192.168.1.5) and plugged it into the hub, However the wireless router or my wireless PC's can not see the access point. Can you help?

    I am using:

    Netgear's WGR614 54Mbps Wireless Firewall Router This is plugged into my comcast cable modem and my Dell™ Wireless 4350 Small Network Access Point is plugged into my netgear powered hub. The router has an ip of 192.168.1.1 and th access point has an ip of 192.168.1.5.

    It must be something in the configuration. How should both these devices be configured?

    Thank you. One last question.

    What would be the affect of making the acess point (connected to the hub) a repeater?

    Bare with me please.

    What I am trying to do is: I need my two wireless laptops to coneect to both the internet (comcast modem and router) which is in a room in the front of the house and to my desktop and network stotage device (which are connected to a hub in another room in the back of the house. The access point is also connected to the hub.The desktop (on the hub in the back of the house) also needs to access the router for internet connection.

    I was trying to use the access point on the hub to do the above. What do you suggest?

    You have been very patient and I thank you and will give you the highest rating.

    First give your wireless router ip 192.168.1.1

    You have already given ip for access point 192.168.1.5 ok.

    connect both wireless router and access point to a switch.

    Done!



    You can see both wireless router and acess point from your pc.

    Which model access point and router you using?

    You have to configure the wireless settings too in both.

    Both the router and access point should be connected to the netgear hub.

    In your router the modem is connected to the WAN port and any one of the lan port should be connected to the netgear hub.

  • sksree406
    sksree406 Nov 03, 2008

    You have to lay cat5 cable (network cable) for connecting both router and access point to the hub.There is no other way for making router and switch in a same network.



    Can u say what u wanna really to do ,I can suggest the network.

  • sksree406
    sksree406 Nov 04, 2008

    you are connecting your internet connection to the router.Router means it will act as a mediater between ur local network and inertnet.Access point is like expanding your network.For example you have a three storyed building for better signal strength you should have to put 3 access point ijn each floor.More over there are limitaions for connecting pc s to the access point.Better you should connect max 7 pcs to a access point.


    Dont forget to rate me

    next thing is abt configuring your router.Enable dhcp option in the router.Dhcp is nothing but a option for giving automatic ip address.You can specify the range inthe router.When the laptops u tried to connect it will show two wirless devices,one is u r wireless router and other is access point.You can see the signal strength in and connect to the one which giving good signals.

How to retrieve password from wireless access point router zyxel -570u


Initial Set-Up
Plug your wireless router into the cable connection in your wall. Plug the connection cord into the "WAN" port on the router. Plug the router's power source into the wall and turn the router on. Connect your wireless access point to your router by pushing one end of an Ethernet cord into the WAP. Push the other end of the Ethernet cord into the "LAN" port on the router. The WAP connects your wireless devices to your router.
Connect your laptop or computer to the WAP. Click the "Start" button on your computer and then click "Control Panel." Click "Network and Internet" and then select "Network and Sharing Center." The "Network and Sharing Center" window opens.
Click "Set up a wireless router or access point." Click the "Next" button.
Follow the prompts to create a wireless pass phrase or security key. Write the key down in a safe location to ensure access later, if required.

To Configure the Router with Internet Access

Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:

  1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
  5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point's DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
  6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
  8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
  9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network

here are times when there is a need to connect a wired computer to an access point in order to set it up. To connect a wired PC to a Linksys access point, follow the steps below. Step 1:
Connect the PC to the Ethernet port located at the back of the access point.

Step 2:
Assign a static IP address on the computer. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: To assign a static IP address using Mac, click here.
The Access Point can be configured in four different modes:
  • Access Point
  • Access Point Client
  • Wireless Repeater
  • Wireless Bridge
The Access Point mode allows wireless clients to connect to the access point and routes traffic between the wireless and wired interface. Use this mode to create a standard wireless Infrastructure network. For instructions, click here.
The Access Point Client mode allows this device to act as a wireless client. You can connect a wired PC to the access point to connect to a wireless router or another access point wirelessly. You can enter the MAC address of the Access Point or use the Site Survey button to select the Access Point you want to connect.
NOTE: The WAP54G will only communicate with another WAP54G when set to the Access Point Client. For instructions, click here.

To Configure the Router with Internet Access
Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:
  1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
  5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point’s DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
  6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
  8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
  9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network.
This completes the wireless router/access point configuration.
  • You can now log in to the wireless router/access point at its new address of http://192.168.1.99 and configure wireless features such as WEP and Access Control List
  • UPnP, DMZ, Port Forwarding, and Port Triggering are not used on the wireless router/access point, and it doesn't matter how they are configured.
  1. Configure the LAN IP address to be within the same subnet as your PCs.
    • Take care not to use an IP address already being used.
    • Limit the number of addresses in the DHCP range and assign an IP address outside of the range to the router you want to use as the Access Point.
  2. Disable DHCP on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Connect one of the LAN ports on the wireless router/access point to a LAN port on the Router.
  4. Configure the SSID and any security settings on the wireless PCs to match the wireless router/access point's SSID and security settings.
a. SSIDs must be the same on all wireless devices. (These are case-sensitive: netGEAR is not the same as NETGEAR.)
b. Tip: Make sure the wireless PCs can connect before configuring WEP, WPA-PSK, or other wireless encryption.

I have connected the access point to my network switch when i run the wizard it says it cannot find any Wireless G access point ? Why is this ?


You said that the access point is connected to the switch. Are you using any router?
If you have a router connected to the switch then it's ok. otherwise you need to connect the Access point and computer to the router.
check the IP address of the router and the access point. Both should be in the same IP address range

Wireless router says its working laptop says no its not


Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.
