Hi all Not posted here before but there seems to be some life in this newsgroup. We have an internal wired network that DOESN'T use DHCP. All the client windoze machines have their IPs set uniquely & their gateway & DNS settings pointing at a proxy server that gives internet access. I need to add wireless capability to this network. So the access point has to be able to have a hardwired IP, gateway & DNS setting on it's wired side in the same way as all the existing clients and ideally it will have its own DHCP server on its wireless side. Is this possible, is there a name for this particular function & if so are there any recommendations for a box that will do such. The boss has already wasted money on a wnr2000 Netgear router that, presumably because it's a router doesn't seem to do the trick - once you set its IP address for the internal network it just seems to disappear. I've tried googling for W access point comparisons but the only info that features in the results is speed, good looks & not obscure configuration abilities.
