I wonder if you can help me, I have two Linksys Wireless access points and I am trying to get them to "talk" to each other so that I can have one at the front of the house and one at the back to give me better wireless coverage all around the house and extend further into the garden for my laptops - hoping for summer internet whilst sunbathing !
I have got a Linksys Wireless-G ADSL Gateway (WAG54G - v1) with system firmware 1.01.6 (wireless firmware 184.108.40.206)
and a Linksys Wireless Access Point Router (BEFW11S4 - v2) with system firmware 1.45.1 (wireless firmware 1.1.2
What I hope to achieve is;- I have my daughter's PC with shared printer, in the back bedroom connected via LAN to BEFW11S4 then get that to connect to the WAG54G via WLAN. Connected, then to the WAG54G is connected via LAN my network printer, main PC, spare laptop LAN. Also connected to the WAG54G is my ADSL connection. I hope then to be able to connect either of my laptops to the WLAN and browse to any PC, printer and the internet.
I already have fairly good coverage around the house and I can use my laptop on the WAG54G comfortably in the back bedroom next to the BEFW11S4 (and vice-versa)
I've set the same WEP key settings and SSID on both devices
I've given the WAG54G an IP address of 192.168.1.1 with mask of 255.255.255.0. It is also set up to be a DHCP server for addresses 192.168.1.10 - 19
and given the BEFW11S4 an IP address of 192.168.1.2 with mask of 255.255.255.0. It is also set up to be a DHCP server for addresses 192.168.1.20 - 20
I have also disabled MAC filtering as I had previously had it enabled and working whilst I was using the BEFW11S4 seperately.
My WAG54G is connected to my broadband account and I have given one of my laptops (and the PCs) static IP addresses in the same range 192.168.1.1XX, mask 255.255.255.0 with a default gateway of 192.168.1.1, The other laptop is a DHCP client.
No matter what I try I can't ping from one PC across the wireless link to the other. i.e. if I have either laptop plugged into the LAN port on the WAG54G and try to ping to 192.168.1.2 I get "timed out" also if I associate it to the WAG54G WLAN then the ping also fails, although I am able to ping 192.168.1.1 OK. This works (or rather doesn't work ! ) the same in reverse, pinging from behind the BEFW11S4 to the WAG54G (or other PC behind it - including the internet)
I'd be very greatful if you could help me get this working - I'm betting that there is a setting I need to change somewhere that I am just missing.
