* How to use a 4500 as an AP to the 6300 *

Greetings All.

I have a 4500 which I want to use ONLY as access point. I have a 6300 as my main household router.

I have set the following options on the 4500:

* Turned on AP.
* Enabled Bridge Mode
* Turned off DHCP (so no conflict on network with two (2) DHCP Server)

However, anytime a client tries to connect it cannot. I need a printer and one (1) machine to connect.

Any advice or a starting point would be appreciated.

Thank you.
:confused:

P.S. Do you need two (2) 6300's for this to work correctly?

Thank you.

However, the wireless network part of the network on the 4500 is not working correctly (no ip addresses being issued). Is there something else I need to configure for wireless?

Thanks.

Thank you.

However, clients cannot connect to the wireless network from the 4500. IP addresses are not being issued.

Is there another configuration setting I need set?

Thanks.

Should not. Test out with static ip on wifi device and see if that work to rule out dhcp issues
