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 router 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
This is a massive and expensive network, which appears to require a full signal and configuration audit. It's quite possible that many of your problems are stemming from the APs you have already deployed being situated in suboptimal and conflicting locations, which is an issue with three-dimensional wireless networks.
I really don't see your problems being debugged by anyone short of an experienced on-site wireless network technician. I'm saying this as a person who tuns a one-man company serving two rural communities with wireless internet service.
You need to connect all pc's and homehub to a switch so they can talk to one another. Then use the AP as a wireless access point to connect all wireless laptops, and connect the AP to the switch with ethernet cable, and you have a network. Just make sure that only your HH or AP supplies IP addresses or they will clash.
Go out to you local electronics store and purchase a wireless router , or Wireless Access Point (AP) , this way you will create a wireless connection by following the instructions given when you purchase the Wireless AP .
Basically when you buy the Wireless router or AP you just need to plug your existing Modem/Router into the WAN port on the Wireless Router / AP and then some initial setup to configure the wireless settings and then the appropriate settings inputted on your PC.
Heres a short guide i wrote to setting up a Wireless Connections
There are a few requirements other than the laptop and the wireless card. You need to also have an Wireless AP/Router that must be connected to the modem that connects to your ISP. All your PCs must then connect to this router either using the wired/Ethernet ports or WiFi.
If such a device (WiFi AP/Router) already exists and is connected to your modem and your other PC(s) are tied up to it and can access the Internet, you need to install the drivers (in a CD that came with the wireless card) to your IBM ThinkPad. Thereafter, you need to configure your laptop's wireless networking to access the AP/router. Your AP/Router must also be configured to accept wireless clients.
Please post back with brand/model of your AP/Router.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Wireless Distribution System (WDS) allows you to make a completely wireless infrastructure. Normally, the access points must be connected with a wire (LAN). These access points create cells allowing a wireless connection. The WDS feature allows the access points to be wirelessly connected. This feature is normally used in large, open areas where pulling a wire is restricted or not cost effective and in residential circumstances.
If the structure utilizing an access point is too large to cover using one AP, a second AP would be used as a wireless repeater.
The WDS has forwarding functionality for extending the range of an AP. By setting up an extended service set (ESS) between access points. Stations can intersect with any AP of this ESS and move between the coverage of both APs while the higher layer network connection remains intact.
