The OTC Wireless Bridge was setup to use IP phones and have our computers plug into the phones to access our network and the internet. When the wireless bridge was first installed I was able to plug right in and get access; I was able to ping and IP address, go to the internet etc. Once the IP phones were installed I am unable to get any connections on my laptop via the bridge. There were two IP phones installed, however, only one of the phone is working although both phones are configured exactly the same. When I try to plug my laptop into the IP phone that is working correctly it loses it's connection. The one IP phone that is not working is reading "finding IP card". Do you have any suggestions on what else I might try. Do I need to use a crossover cable when I connect the laptop to the IP phones to make it work?
Thank you for your assistance.

Re: OTC Wireless Bridge
Alright I have good news and bad news the good news is: if you remove your IP Phones the setup will work again. Once it is working plug in one of your IP phones with Laptop plugged into the bridge. Once the IP phone is connected test if the Laptop remains connected. The use another Laptop with crossover cable to connect it to the IP Phone one question (is the IP Phone acting as a bridge between the OTC Router and the Laptop?)If it is it can pull an IP address if the OTC Router is a router and the IP phone is acting as a routed interface bridge. Once you get this to work duplicate the setup for the rest of you IP phones and laptops.
BTW you do realize you are pummeling the router with RTP/UDP packets?
I hope this helps

wire the bridge into the ethernet port on your router. access the setup page of your router and check the DHCP client table. you should see the name of the bridge there with the corresponding MAC address. Just type the ip of the bridge into the address bar of your internet browser, you should be able to access the setup page of the bridge by then.
setting this up would be easy if you do it manualy. Just wire the bridge into your router, access the setup page of your router, go to the DHCP client table and take note of the ip address of the bridge.
Open you internet browser then type the ip address of the bridge into your address bar.

Thanks for a very thorough problem report. It's a little ambiguous near the end, though, so I will have to restate what I think I understand you are saying.
You are saying that you have your internet connection and AP in one building, and two devices or PCs in that building can access the internet and share files (though you don't specify if they are using the EOC-2610 access point or are just accessing the router in some other fashion). But you have a remote building where there is one PC and one EOC-2610 in Client Bridge mode, and although both EOC-2610 units seem to be communicating with each other, the PC will not communicate with anything. (I presume you have inspected the access point's configuration screens and verified that it does have the other EOC-2610 listed as a connected client.)
First, the PC in the remote building has to be connected to the Client Bridge EOC-2610 by its ethernet cable in order to access the network. Second, the PC in the remote building has to have a valid IP address in the range 192.168.0.0/24, or it won't communicate with anything. If you are relying on your router's DHCP to assign your PC an IP address, verify that this has happened by examining your PC network properties. If you are assigning all IP addresses manually, make sure you have assigned the PC an address, and one that doesn't duplicate some other device.
Sometimes failure to specify DNS servers appears to be a lack of communication with the network. Open a browser and type 188.8.131.52 in the URL bar. If you get to fixya.com, you have a good network connection. If you type fixya.com in the URL bar and can't get the same result, you need to define DNS servers on the PC (or inside your router).
For a new unit disconnect the eoc from the network and connect directly (through POE injector of course) to your laptop/pc. then in network connections setup your lan port TCP/IP settings as follows. ip 192.168.1.10 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 then gateway 192.168.1.1
point your browser to 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.2 (one if it is in AP mode and the other address works if it is in bridge mode).
When configuring, I assign it an new static IP outside of the DHCP assignment range.
To see how it is setup afterwords you can use hyperterminal with a null modem cable to view the current config. instructions on the engeniustech.com support page.
