I have a problem with a setup at home I hope someone could help me with.
OK here it is:
The DSL line comes into a ZXYEL router  which is my hardware fireware; Ive set a whole bunch of port numbers and it works fine if I connect from that to my computer wired.
I put a patch cable from the router into a wireless D-link AP  and set the AP to be dynamic IP in its config web page.
I then use the USB wireless D-link antenna thing  on the HP vista computer  and set a WEP key to protect the connection.
First time I tried it it worked for a about 30 mins but losing the DNS on a site say youtube but other sites working ok. Now from booting up it pops in and stops permanently until I reboot.
I read the following link in a similiar scenario DSL -> router -> AP -
THe AP does have a bridge mode - i'll try that in the meantime instead of the dynamic IP (four choices - 1) ISP mode - ie you plug the DSL straight into the AP; 2) static IP 3) dynamic IP 4) bridge mode. I suspect I need to try either static or bridge; I dont want the DSL mode as that would mean losing the hardware firewall.
Hope thats clear!
ok, any ideas appreciated,
best regards Alex Beston
