Question about Linksys Wireless-G WAP54G 802.11g/b Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

Need help setting up an syslink G access point?

Just bought a access point to extend connectivity to my network, But seems like this one has to be connected via a RJ45 cable to the other end.
I wanted to have a wireless access point so that I dont have to go through the wiring?
Any one has a thought?
Regards.

    A genuine WAP needs a cable on one end or the other. If you're using it to extend the range of a piece of equipment, it's called a BRIDGE. You plug your etherenet cable into the AP and look for another access point.



    Or, you cable to it and use it as an Access point to your wireless computer. Netgear makes a vaiation on that called a 606 wireless pring server that has 4 ethernet ports and 2 usb ports.

You could install the dd-wrt firmware, which gives you the option of being a repeating station. See www.dd-wrt.com for all the details.

With factory firmware, you must use a cable.

HOW DO I CONNECT MY EXTENDER THROUGH WIFI


It need to be wire connected to another router, once it has an IP you can access the device with a web browser and configure wireless access pretty much with the same information as your actual wireless access point, same network ID and key.

Can't log in Engenius EAP-3660 .after rest factory settings.why? can you help me pls


You don't seem to understand what an Access Point is.

an AP is used to extend your wireless range and will connect to your routericon1.png to provide network and internet access. An AP by itself cannot connect to the ISP since it does not use a WAN port

a router is an AP that will allow you to connect to your ISP for internet connection. A router can be configured to work as an AP but a AP cannot function as a router.

Read the manual. When you reset the AP the IP of the AP device became 192.168.1.1
That means you need to set the IP address of your computer to 192.168.1.x where x is anything from 253-2 and the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0

Hi i bought the smc wireless router and i tries to connect it but i couldnt figure out how to connect it because i have a laptop and my internet is connected from my modem to my laptop but i cant seem to...


I'm unsure of the exact part number here but using the model number I checked the manual. This looks like it's just an access point which extends a current network you have. If you only have your laptop, this device and your internet modem it may not give you the wireless connectivity you're looking for. On a normal setup you would plug your modem into a router, plug your laptop into the router and set it up with all your DSL/Cable connection information as well as wireless on/off. You can then unplug from the router and continue life. with this one it's only connecting to an existing setup (another router or another wireless network) and extending it.
If you are looking for a solution to give you a router that connects to your modem and gives you wireless or adding multiple devices on a single connection I would recommend returning this and getting an all-in-one router such as this: http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/Routers/Linksys-E1000-Wirelessn-router_stcVVproductId97826160VVcatId551966VVviewprod.htm?icid=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn&src2=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn

Linksys WRK54G versus WRT54G Firmware


Hi...

The WRK54G is actually a stripped down version of the WRT54G that was bundled with a wireless network adapter and sold under the kit name WKPC54G.

From what you say in your question I gather that you have a WRT54G already in place as your access point, and it is what is connected to your WAN. To use the WRK54G as a range extender repeater you should do the following:

1. Turn off DHCP
2. Turn off NAT
3. Assign a fixed IP that is in your Class C Block
4. Define the WRT54G as the Gateway

With this configuration it now should function as an extender/repeater, and any clients connecting to it will be serviced by the DHCP on the master router.

I hope that this helps.
