Ideally, there shouldn't be any configuration needed. Access points are transparent and only work as a bridge between wireless and wired network so devices should obtain their IP info from your DHCP server not the access point by default.
If you face problems, then there might be a DHCP server in the access point, disable that.

Wireless Bridging is used to connect two LAN segments via a wireless link. The two segments will be in the same subnet and look like two Ethernet switches connected by a cable to all computers on the subnet. Since the computers are on the same subnet, broadcasts will reach all machines, allowing DHCP clients in one segment to get their addresses from a DHCP server in a different segment. You could use a Wireless Bridge to transparently connect computer(s) in one room to computer(s) in a different room when you could not, or did not want to run an Ethernet cable between the rooms. Contrast this with Client Mode Wireless, where the local wireless device running DD-WRT connects to the remote router as a client, creating two separate subnets. Since the computers within the different subnets cannot see each other directly, this requires the enabling of NAT between the wireless and the wired ports, and setting up port forwarding for the computers behind the local wireless device. Segments connected via Client Mode Wireless cannot share a DHCP server. pictoral In the case in which we are interested, a wireless device running DD-WRT such as a WRT54G is configured as a Wireless Bridge between a remote wireless router (of any make/brand) and the Ethernet ports on the WRT54G.

When I connect my router to my modem, I cannot surf the net, nor can I access my router homepage. I have my modem in bridge mode, but I appear to have no connection.


I would set it up in 'router' mode. Bridge mode is for a specific application for an intranet (not internet).
Bridge Mode Router Mode Does not block any broadcast or multicast Blocks and provide protection against broadcast storms Transparent bridge and can pass Non-IP protocols Only IP protocol is supported PPPOE protocol Pass-through No PPPOE protocol pass-through Able to transport VLAN tagging Doesn't supports VLAN No network segmentation. One broadcast domain Network segmentation (Clients can be on different IP subnet) Can only relay the DHCP client's request to the external DHCP server Can Act as DHCP server & relay which Prevents IP conflict & DHCP Injection Bridges maintains bridging table (Mac) & STP can be used to avoid loops No STP feature; maintains routing table External bandwidth Controller can be used to control the speed of the clients by Mac or IP address External bandwidth Controller can be used to control the speed of the clients by IP only In client device, it uses MAC address to associate which requires WDS compatible AP Use SSID to associate, work with any 802.11a/b/g AP

Wireless internet hookup


What seems to be the problem of your wireless internet?

Internet hookup


This is not the manufacturer's site, but i will try to help.
Is it your own network?
You need to make sure that the network is not protected, or you'll need the password.
Go to Start>Control Panel on your computer
Then go to Network Connections
There should be an icon for your wireless connection.
Right-click -> select Properties
In the selectbox select 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)'
Click Properties
Check if 'Obtain an IP-address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS-server' are selected
If they were not, Press <Ok> two times and try to connect to the wireless network again.

Can you also tell what IP-address you get?
Find it by going to Start > Run
Type 'cmd' without the quotation marks and press <Ok>
you get a black command box
type 'ipconfig', again without the quotation marks and press <Enter>
Please tell me the IP-address it tells you...

Hi
I am try to take a stab at answering your query.

Internet Protocol (IP) Address preceeding with "169" means your PC is not receiving IP Address "generally" from your Boradband Modem or Internet Service Provider (ISP). The PC through Automatic Private Internet Protocol Addressing (APIPA) is assigning itself a temporal IP address.
This conditions means either
1. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Client service is not running properly on your PC (Unlikely)
2. There is no connection between your PC and Broadband Device or ISP wired or wirelessly (very likely)
3. DHCP Server Service is not configured or not running on Boardband device (likely) or ISP (unlikely)
4. Some firewall software when improperly configured are known to block all ports and services. This can block TCP Ports 67 and 68 used by DHCP Client/Server communication (quite likely)
Some pointers for more info;
1. Your query suggest your issues are limited to Wireless connection. Can you access Internet through wired connection? If so;
a) What Wired connection is in use? USB or Ethernet?
b) Is wired connection through same Broadband device?
c) What IP is assigned to your PC in wired connection?
d) If wired connection works, is IP assignment static or by DHCP?
e) What Boardband device is in use? In which mode is the device set to? Router/Bridge
2. If you can't connect both wired and wireless, then it is unlikely your PC hardware is at fault. Call your Broadband Provider for further help and configuration. Try entily disabling your firwall software (if installed) and test conection.
3. If you can connect through wired connection and your IP Address does not proceed with "192.168" or "172.16" then your boadband device is likely in a bridge mode. In bridge mode, the DHCP Server Service on your boardband device is disabled. Most ISPs will only assign only one IP address to a user. If an IP address has been assigned to your PC on the wired connection, then the wireless connection will not receive an IP address and therefore your PC will assign itself an IP in the range "169.254"

Trying to hook up lap top to wireless internet. Comcast tech says there is problem with IP# 169 which preceeds other numbers and needs to be removed for hookup. How can I accomplish this? Model #3150H


Usually you will have an IP address starting with 169 if the adapter cannot get an ip address from anywhere, it is an autmoatic IP address.

What operating system (Windows XP or 2000 or Vista) are you using?
