If this is a stupid idea, I'm sure someone will say so...
Can I use a wireless router _in client mode_ as a wireless device for two boxes connected to it by LAN cables, and subsequently access a remote access point using static IPs for the router and computers?
It seems like I ought to be able to, but I could be mistaken.
Our repeater is 192.168.1.250 (all boxes at this end of the building access the AP via this repeater)
Due to some problems with DHCP, I assigned static IPs to the computers that currently access the system via WiFi (per tech support, under 192.168.1.100 or over
192.168.1.300 to avoid any conflicts). The notebook I'm using at the moment is 192.168.1.88 for example.
So far, this works pretty well.
I want to add two more boxes into a wireless router (to be running in client mode) using the Ethernet inputs on the router.
So, OK - do I just have to set up the router and the boxes using the above addresses and then give both boxes and the router each a random IP within the range, or is there some special relationship between the IPs assigned to the two boxes and that of the router into which they're plugged?
