Re: ip address problem
Try statically assigning an IP address so that you can access the router, and make sure the DHCP service is enabled on it. Failing that, you can try resetting the default settings on the router.
It should have a small hole on the back of the router
(near the power plug, I believe) with a button inside. Use a paperclip
to hold that button down for 5 to 10 seconds, then reset the power to
the router, and it should be back to it's defaults.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

go to dosprompt on p.c or start run cmd <press the enter key>
type in ipconfig <press the enter key>
was the ip address of the laptop 192.168.0.210 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 ?
note the ip address of the laptop and the subnet mask
If the ip address is not 192.168.0.210 then go into the network settings and set the laptop up with 192.168.0.210 and then make it a static ip address.
go to dosprompt on p.c or start run cmd <press the enter key>
type in ipconfig <press the enter key>
was the ip address of the laptop 192.168.0.210 with a subnet of 255.255.255.0 ? (if not restart the laptop ) and check again
Next question how did you connect the wg302 directly to the laptop was it directly connected or was it through a network switch or network hub. Most likely the Cable router or DSL router has a DCHP server assigning different ip address lease range. You can either change the ip address of the access point device to one in the original current router lease range and assign it as static for the wireless access point device in the dchp lease table or assign the wireless access point with the second ip address as an example 10.0.0.2 and make sure the router dchp server allocates above 10.0.0.20 then temporarily connect router to laptop and temporily set laptop with 192.168.0.210 and then log into access point and change ip address to 10.0.0.2 for wireless access point device and turn off its dchp server. Then change laptop to use dhcp while connected into network hub or network switch with original router and restart laptop wired back into original normal network.
What are you using for Internet connects? do you have the Access point connected to a Router. or is it connected to the Cable or DSL modem. I will need more information to complete this. If you have a router is is set to give an IP address or do you have a static IP? If it is set to give a Dynamic ip change the access point to recieve ip address from router and same with computer. If your connected directly to the Modem with the access point and you only have one IP address it will be used by the access point and not allow the computer to connect.
for more help please provide your internet (DSL, T1, CABLE) if you have router, how it provides IP, and how access point is connected to it.
s u can connect as u wish. connect a utp cable lan port of ur wireless router to ur pc. assign ip for ur pc with router's ip as gateway address. similarly search for wireless networks from ur laptop. u will find ur wireless router to in that range. click on it connect to the network. the ip gets automatically assigned for the laptop. Thats it u are done!!!
o access the Access Points Setup, and the LAN IP address has not changed, then computer must have an IP address of 192.168.1.XXX. If the Access Point is plugged in via Ethernet to a Linksys Router and the computer is also connected a Linksys router via Ethernet, then the PC should already have a correct IP address (unless the LAN IP Address of the Router has been changed). If unsure, please assign the computer a Static IP Address so it will have an IP address in the same range as the Access Points IP Address.
If the Access Point is being connected to a hub/switch/router via Ethernet, then use the cable that was provided with Access Point. If the Access Point is being connected to the computer directly, then a Cross Over cable must be used. Cross over cables can be purchased at most electronic stores.
Remember: When ever a change is made in the Setup of the Access Point, the Apply button must be used to save the settings to the Access Point.
Open a web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Netscape)
When the browser opens, go to the "Address" bar and input the IP address of the Access Point.
Default IP addresses:
WAP11 v2.8 - 192.168.1.251
WAP54G v1.1 - 192.168.1.245
A "User Name" and "Password" prompt will appear, leave the "User Name" field blank and input the Access Points password (The default password of a Linksys Access Point is admin) into the "Password" field.
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 126.96.36.199 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).
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:
Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
Power on the wireless router/access point.
Reboot the PC.
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).
Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point’s DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
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.
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
Disable DHCP on the wireless router/access point.
Connect one of the LAN ports on the wireless router/access point to a LAN port on the Router.
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.
that is right the access point does not have a dhcp server. that will give an ip address to all of your computers or device connected to it wireless. If you have a modem with a dhcp server there will be no problem with the IP but if the modem does not you must have a router and now an access point.
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.
disabling WEP security is not a great idea, unless you plan on replacing it with WPA. As for your request, please open a Browser and enter 188.8.131.52 into your address bar and hit enter. I can't seem to recall exactly where the setting is, but you will come across it if you look through the router admin page. Hope this helps.
