|Hello =) I've been having a problem, as some others it seems, getting my client-bridge setup. Here's my setup:
verizon USB720->host computer using ICS-> NIC with ICS 192.168.0.1->Netopia 3347 setup up as an AP 192.168.0.254 (no dhcp, etc)~~WHR-G54S with v23 SP2 setup correctly as a client-bridge
My WLAN is open, named sseleriw on both routers. I previously had this exact setup working but with a 802.11b M$ router in place of the 3347. Everything worked without a hitch, but it was only "b". As you can tell, I'm not using the 3347 for DSL, just as an AP. (can't get cable or dsl at my house... only verizon wireless broadband, sux)
I have a laptop that has no problem at all getting an ics dhcp assigned ip from the 3347.
I've tried v24 without positive results... so I went back to v23 SP2 (since that's what worked before). I've tried always hard boot, fact. defaults, hard boot, and both ways of setting up a client bridge; either just trying to join the existing network in site survey (and of course setting the client router in the correct ip subnet) and also manually setting everything.
The problem seems to stem from this: I see the network with a near perfect signal in the site survey, but when I click join it says it completed correctly, click continue, and then it goes to the basic tab in wireless; doesn't matter if I save settings at that point or not.
Any help is welcome thx.
