I'm trying to set up a Senao 3220 in Client Bridge mode for use on my boat. The objective is to be able to select an access point on shore and be able to connect to it. Ideally the 3220 would automatically configure the PC TCPIP connection for DNS server, IP address, gateway IP, etc after connecting to the access point.
The problem I'm having arises from the need to be able to communicate with the 3220 via an ethernet connection at the same time it is connected to an access point. Right now the only way I can make this work half way reliably is to assign a static IP address of192.168.1.3 to the 3220, assign my own DNS servers, turn off DHCP, and assume a gateway address of 192.168.1.1. This works most of the time for most access points but it is not very elegant, and I'm sure there are some access points that default to a gateway addres of something other than 192.168.1.1.
If I set the Senao to DHCP server mode, it does assign an IP address but no gateway, and no DNS.
If I set it to DHCP client mode, it changes its own IP address but does not communicate it back to the PC which results in loss of connectivity to the internal firmware, and requires a reset.
Anyone have any suggestions?
The manual is extremely sketchy on these points.
