After the Wireless Bridge installation I was able to connect my laptop directly into the hub and get to the internet. The wireless bridge was setup so that our two warehouse could stay on one network along with IP phones so that our phone system in both buildings could communicate as one. After the IP phone installation only one of the IP phone is connecting properly though they're both configured exactly the same. On the IP phone that is not connecting it reads "finding ip card". When I try to connect my laptop to the IP phone that is working correctly the phone's connection is lost until I disconnect the laptop. Should I use a crossover cable to solve this? I've been trying to figure this out for the past week and the IP phone techs don't have a resolution and the OTC tech also do not understand why it was working and now it is not. I would truly appreciate any suggestions.

If your Home Hub is a BT type internet hub, then you can connect the WAN port to the Ethernet port on the Hub.
This means it will go through two routers. One in the Hub and another in the Edimax. The Edimax needs to be configured as a bridge, because you need to keep within the same address range as the BT router. The Edimax DHCP allocation of IP addresses need to be disabled.

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
First, we need to identify the problem, it can be either with your laptop or with your Wireless router or with your Internet service provider.
so, first Step 1. please check whether you have "switched ON" the wireless on your acer laptop or not.(there may be a On /OFF switch on the laptop itself) Step2. check weather you are able to connect to internet with wires or not? (which means that you need to bypass your wireless router and directly connect the cable to your acer laptop) If you are able to connect to internet through wires but not wirelessly then follow the rest of the steps.. Step 3. check whether your wireless is connected in the correct fashion or not... for that view the 2 videos which i have attached in this solution. Step4. if the above steps do not work then it could be that your laptop or it's driver configuration are not OK. you can then insert the "DRIVER" disk which came with your laptop and install the wireless driver again.
Here are the Videos....
If still issue is unresolved then please ask me again, i'll be ready to help.
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 220.127.116.11 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.
