Linksys Access Point :: Configuring WAP54G With Existing Netgear Wireless?

Apr 26, 2013

Having some problems connecting up my "new" AP My current set-up consists of a Netgear "Virgin Superhub" cable modem/wireless router, a ZyXEL WRE2205 (repeater) in the hall on the first floor, and Ethernet connections through to a number of rooms, including the loft. I can't get wireless access in the loft, and I want to put the AP up there, connected through Ethernet. I want to use the same SSID and security for the AP as on the router and repeater so I can roam around(!) That's possible isn't it?What I've done so far (which hasn't worked) is connected via laptop to AP, set AP into AP mode(!), set the AP to dynamic IP, set the SSID / security the same as the router/repeater, plugged the AP into the Ethernet and tried to connect.

Linksys Access Point :: Configuring WAP54G As A Router?

Mar 26, 2012

We have network that uses a Cisco router and use a WAP54G to access the network wirelessly.
We use static IP address so if someone wants to use the wireless an IP address has to be assigned to it and be manually configured for IP Address, Gateway, Sub Net Mask and DNS.
This is becoming unwieldly, but it is safe.  Is there any way to config the WAP54G as a router that would automatically assign an IP address in a range just for wireless devices.
Therefore the wireless devices could be set up as DHCP and we would use WPA/WPA2 encryption with a passkey, instead of just assigning static IP addresses.

Linksys Access Point :: Connect And Configure WAP54G Access Point To New Cable Modem?

Nov 1, 2012

How do I connect and configure my WAP54G wireless access point to my new Cable Modem? I have it connected to the modem but I cannot access it to configure it. It appears to be working but before I got the cable modem I had it connected to a router and it was set-up with a static IP address. With my new ISP, I no longer have a static IP address so I am trying to configure the WAP54G to use DHCP. Trying to access it thru the internet at does not work.

Linksys Access Point :: WAP54G Access Point Unable To Connect To More Than One PC?

Apr 25, 2011

I've got a AP WAP54G. I've managed to get into the configuration page and rename my router and set a WPA2-Personl password.
 The issue I'm facing is that when me and my roomate try to connect to the router at the same time, it shows the laptop that connects second as one that has 'limited connectivity' and hence cannot use the internet. The 1st laptop however works fine!
The settings for the router have all been left to default.
I'm not sure, but does this problem have anything to do with the fact that the router in configured with a static IP. If so, then there is another issure which is that whenever I try to change it from static to automatic/dynamic IP, the page fails and the router doesn't even get connected to the configuraion page( after that. The only way to get that page again is the reset the router.
Also I'm not able to directly get into the config page when I connect my router to my laptop via lan. I need to change the LAN IP to 192.168.1.x where x is >1.

Linksys Access Point :: Share Laptop Wireless Connection Over WAP54G?

Jul 16, 2011

I'm trying to share my existing wireless connection over a WAP54G with the latest firmware, on Windows 7 on a laptop. Basically, the laptop is getting a wireless connection from my Sprint Card, but I need to share a wi-fi connection with an iPod I'll be using to validate tickets.  Unfortunately, there is no option to share the wireless connection when I click on the Properties for the connection. When I put in my WiFi settings, the iPod is able to login to the AP, but it cannot obtain an IP.  It keeps doing this.  Same thing happens with my Samsung Epic which runs Android.  I can access the AP manager, and can configure it.  Have tried using no security, but still no dice.  Even turned off the firewall.
I can surf the internet on the laptop, but I simply can't share the connection with the AP. This is really important as I'm trying to get it setup by next weekend!

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs V7 And A Wap54g V3.1 - Unable To Get IP Address From Access Point

Mar 1, 2012

I have a wrt54gs v7 and a wap54g v3.1.  Both have latest firmware on them.  I set the access point to act as a repeater and entered the mac address from the router (It said to use the lan mac address.  is that right?).  I have them set on same subnet with static ip addresses.  They have same wireless ssid and password with one using channel 10 and the other using channel 2.  I can receive an ip address from the router and connect to internet.  I cannot get an ip address from the access point.  I tried a static ip on the computer and it will connect, but I don't have internet.  Am I missing something in the setup?  Can this access point act as a repeater for this router?

Linksys Access Point :: WAP54G - Can't See Wired Network Devices With Wireless Connection

Mar 3, 2011

I work at a small business that has an exisiting wired network. Our setup is: Internet > ISP Box > DHCP Server > Switch > Users. I have been attempting to add a wireless router to the network to enable our shop techs to wirelessly access our file computer. I have managed to get the wireless working, but the network was not visible, I could not access any network computers from the wireless, and I could not access the wireless router from our main server. After this I screwed up the settings completely and even a wired connection to the router couldn't connect to the internet. Now I have purchased a WAP54G, but I forsee the same problems when I go to config everything tomorrow.

Linksys Access Point :: Can't Connect To WAP54G

Feb 19, 2011

My Linksys Range Extender died.  So I bought a WAP54G thinking that I could use it as a repeater to extent the range of the signal from my router to the other wireless PCs in the house.
1st floor:
PC1 connected to a WRT54G  v.5 router
PC2 connected to PC1 router via USB network adapter
Laptop connected to PC1 royter via internal wireless
2nd floor
PC3 connected to PC1 router via USB network adapter
PC4 connected to PC1 router via USB network adapter
The main goal is to set up the WAP54G in between PC1 and the other PCs to extent the range of the signal particularly to the 2nd floor PCs.The instructions for configuring the WAP54G are fairly straightforward, but the first issue I run into is not being able to connect to the WAP54G web setup.  I am using the following instructions:
once I configure or setup the WAP54G through another PC as a repeater, will I be able to disconnect it from the PC and use it as a standalone (e.g., plugging only the power in and leaving it in my kitchen or a hallway) to extend the range of the signal?  Or does it have to stay connected to PC1 and does PC1 always have to be on for this WAP54G to act as a repeater?

Linksys Access Point :: WAP54G To Use This AP As A Repeater

Mar 7, 2011

I have a WAP54G as my access point, currently it is connected with my BEFSR81 router. I am thinking of changing the access point to a WAP610N for the house. I know that this would work but I was wondering if the WAP54G could be used as a repeater for the outside (I know a lower speed). I know they are two different channels but I wanted a larger range for my wireless. I am on Windows XP, SP2, using Firefox. Can this be done?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT400N - Adding Access Point To Existing Network

Oct 26, 2010

I have an existing wireless network using a Cisco/Linksys WRT400N wireless router (which in turn is connected to a cable internet provider). I need to extend my wireless coverage and so purchased a Cisco/Linksys E1000 to act as an additional access point.  Purchased from BB, the local 'geek squad' rep instructed me to follow the users guide for the set up. After login into the admin service on my E1000, I followed the 'Advanced Routing' instructions and disabled the 'NAT' option and subsequently enabled the 'Dynamic Routing (RIP)' option.  Everything worked like a charm to this point, but now I'm stuck. What steps do I need to follow to allow clients to log onto my wirelss network via the E1000 (secondary access point)? I've established WEP security keys on the WRT400N (primary access point) and want to use the same network security parameters on the E1000.

Linksys Access Point :: Wrt54gx2 With Srx 200 - Configure WAP54G With A MAC?

Jan 8, 2007

I have a wrt54gx2 with srx 200 technology recently purchased. I havetwo cabled computers attached. One at one end of the house attached tothe router by ehternet cable, the other attached about 100 ft by ethernet cable.The wireless does not reach to the other end of the house, most likley because that part of the house is an addition with masonary walls and a large masonary firplace. I bought a wap54g access point at the recommendation from someone at linksys to attach to the end of the ethernet run. Since my set up is macintosh, I can't use the wizard disk that came with the wap54g. Linksys support was not support( not expected), I need to know what to do to get this up and running. I am new to this stuff and Linksys get the wireless router with ethernet installed and up and running with my dsl. I thought the same for the wap54g.

Linksys Access Point :: WAP54G Green ACT LED Does Not Light Up

after several years of proper functioning my WAP started to make trouble and recently stopped working. I've tried a lot of options to get it back online but I failed doing so.The green ACT LED won't light up anymore so my laptop cannot find the WAP anymore. When connecting the WAP directly to the laptop the Network Center shows that Windows is trying to identify the WAP but this messages disappears and re-appears on and on but there is no succes in identification (ofcourse this is caused the the green ACT LED which won't light-up).

Linksys Access Point :: Windows 7 Can't Connect To WAP54G

Feb 20, 2011

I am unable to connect wirelessly to a WAP54G v2 with a Dell Inspiron 17R/N7010 running Windows 7.  In fact, previously a relative's laptop, also running Windows 7, was also unable to connect at my location.The access point has no security enabled.  It shows up in the list of available wireless networks.  I've configured the wireless adapter properly (static ip).  Yet connection fails.  Windows suggests that I power cycle the access point and try again. If I use the same configuration for the wired connection, it works.  Is there a compatibility issue with Windows 7 and the WAP54G v2?
