Re: Ax4 in access point mode


Ax4 in access point mode

I bought a rax4 wifi and want to use it as an access point on my home network. I set it into AP mode and am given 2 choices, let existing router decide (dhcp) or set manually (static). When using dhcp method, it works but I have no idea what my wifi devices IP is so it's a pain to get in and make changes. When I statically assign the IP, gateway, subnet and dns it goes wonkey. The wifi router is dishing out IPs and the gateway is instead of the (gateway is out of network). I want all dhcp to be handled at my border router and the wifi to act as a dumb media bridge. Basically, I want to statically assign the wifi device and dhcp the clients. Is this possible?

Ax4 is hooked to cisco 3560 switch and 2901 router.
