I got stuck installing a WAP, wireless access point. The configuration is:
Linux server with DHCP daemon | |--> Router (Cat5 only) with DHCP off | |--> wireless access point (Belkin 54 G) | |--> client (Windows)
The problem is between de WAP and the client. The client connects with the WAP, that works OK. The DHCP gives the client an ip-number, that's fine.
_But_ there is no internet, nor network sharing possible from the client. This is understandible, because the WAP has a fixed ip-address, I have to specify, e.g. 192.168.1.30. The client gets a different ip-number, which it gets from the DHCP daemon, e.g.192.168.1.31. So the client will never be reached!!!
Now, why does the WAP has to have a fixed IP number? I can change the number, but in my opinion it should get the ip-number from the DHCP daemon.
Is the problem in the WAP? Buy another WAP?
Should I change the configuration of dhcp.conf?
I have no idea what to do. So, maybe someone has a suggestion?!
